We are waiting for our first child and we are very confused by how many pushchair options are out there! Hence looking forward to getting some suggestions.
A bit of background on our lifestyle: we live in London, hence are mainly city-based. We walk and use public transports a lot (we don't own a car) and only occasionally take ubers/rent a car for weekends away. We love nature and we escape to walk in parks, explore cities around London, in the countryside as soon as we can. We expect to travel often abroad by plane as our family is in Europe.
We'd of course like to get something that lasts until toddlerhood. It's a hard request I know as we'd ideally need something sturdy to handle day to day use in the city with potentially uneven surfaces as well as occasional days out in parks/countryside while being not too heavy and easy to drive as we go on public transports and my wife is quite petite. Something too bulky or heavy would not be suitable and we'll end up struggling with it. I'd still like my wife to enjoying going out for a walk with the baby.
Based on our research so far and what we understood (pardon our ignorance!) we were considering the following:
- Nuna Triv: light city stroller, good foldability, with generally bigger wheels and good suspensions compared to many others so could handle harsher terrains? Not sure about durability and whether the seat is spacious enough to last until toddlerhood? (we found an amazing offer for a bundle with carrycot and car seat so this has a strong price advantage);
- icandy lime, seems to have good wheels and suspensions without being too heavy and it folds well. However, not sure about its terrain capabilities compared to the other two options and its durability and spaciousness of seat. We like the bar for a second kid and the overnight sleeping carrycot. This option feels in between the other two so maybe worth going directly for the cheapest/lightest nuna or upgrade to the fox 2 for slightly more as this is now discounted?
- Bugaboo Fox 2, my understanding is that it is durable and has very good terrain capabilities while being light compared to similar full size pushchairs (although heavier than the other two probably?). Our only concern is the foldability and the fact that we would probably need a lighter stroller for travelling while the other two may act as our main and only stroller?
I may have said a lot of incorrect things so please excuse me. I look forward to your precious opinion.
P.S. Thanks so much for the work you put into all this!
