The stylish ultracompact with super-nice padding
see 7 parent reviews

The ABC Design Ping is an ultra-lightweight, ultra-compact stroller destined for travel, short trips, or as a spare stroller to keep in the car. Thanks to the extra padded seat, fully adjustable safety harness, the extendable, well-ventilated hood, the wheels with suspension, an easily accessible shopping basket, and many elaborate details, the Ping makes a tremendous secondary stroller. The seat unit is spacious - even for an older child. The backrest, as well as the leg rest, can be reclined flat. The Ping offers a quick, one-hand fold. Once folded, you can carry the stroller by the integrated handle.

The Ping was released in the fashionable, patterned Fashion Edition, and the premium Diamond Edition featuring dark melange fabrics combined with quilted, dark leatherette handlebars and chrome, glossy chassis.

parents say thx^^

It tips over


I feel bad for being the first person to leave a negative review on this stroller. Although I love that it is compact, stylish and easy to use, i found that this stroller has a few set backs which made it hard to stay in love with it.

- you cannot walk properly without your feet hitting on the back wheels or even worse on the breaks making you slam right in the stroller.
- the fabric on the hood is very very thin.
- the vents on the side of the hood are annoying and cannot be covered, the baby feels exposed all the time.
- worst one yet... this stroller is completely unstable! Yes does fine with smaller babies that don't move or wiggle much yet, but once yet hit that 1 year and start reaching out for things, then this is when the stroller becomes dangerous.

It tips over! Yes it tips over... with the child strapped in it. Happened multiple times... we ended up using it ONLY with our hands glued on the handle bar which was just making our lives a misery so packed it up and forgot about it.

The Ping is not exactly cheap... and we really thought we had chosen the right stroller for our holidays / short trips but we were wrong. I regret purchasing it.

  • Huge canopy
  • Easy to push
  • Very easy to fold with one hand
  • Lightweight but sturdy
  • Carry strap
  • It is easy to step on the brake while walking
  • Peek a boo window cover has to be held by hand if I want to see my baby

I thought a lot about sending it back after I bought it. I felt Ping was unstable after my Oyster 3. Then I tried m...

It is easy to push with one hand and is also practical for public transport and if there is no lift I can take my baby out of it in a few seconds and fold it and put it on my shoulder. Bought for travel, not for everyday use, but super useful for a quick shopping or a downtown walk as well.

  • huge canopy
  • the rear canopy flap that can be secured makes it look so elegant - so much better than those flapping pieces of similar strollers...
  • full recline
  • padded seat
  • quality materials
  • stylish chassis
  • tall handlebar
  • German brand
  • I wish the canopy's vents could be covered somehow when it's open
  • I would also make the canopy even thicker, fabric-wise

We have it in the Fashion edition slightly reminding of Burberry pattern. I love the look, and it's also easy and practical to use. I didn't know which travel stroller to choose, but I ended up choosing well ^^

I love love love it. Beautiful, practical, the stroller to get to when traveling, We're using it even more often than our main stroller now. Did I mention how beautiful it is? ;-)

I had to have it


I love love LOVE the pastel color... so I had to have it. Other than that, it's OK - quite basic, functional; we only use it while traveling... I would maybe make the seating surface deeper - my son seems to be slumping a little bit. But since the leg rest can be regulated upwards, it's not that bad. The laying position is not completely flat, but enough for napping. The handlebar is rather high (better for tall parents).

Great for airports, traveling, shops... not much else, but we bought it exactly for that purpose. Most of the time, we're keeping it in the car.

  • design
  • padded upholstery
  • nice canopy with extension, ventilation and a closable viewing window
  • super compact
  • the recline is really deep
  • perforated eco-leather on handlebar and bumper bar looks very stylish
  • small wheels
  • strap recline of the backrest
  • not so much space in the seat nor in the basket - but it is because of the nature of a super-compact stroller, this is actually not much of a minus
  • non-adjustable handlebar, but that's rather standard

I only saw it being displayed and tried it out. It is gorgeous, and it's really compact. I love its modern, urban design - but it is really just urban. You won't get through any terrain with those tiny wheels. Space-wise, the seat is enough - ok until those circa three years of age. A great plus is that accessible basket, and I loved those special editions - it is really something special!

Your questions about the ABC Design Ping



I am so thankful for your useful advices here, I’ve learned a lot about strollers. I am planning to buy a compact travel stroller for my one-year-old for our travels and also daily use (mostly for shorter rides to the store).

In my country, the most affordable and available items for me are ABC Design Ping, Cybex Beezy, Easywalker Miley 2 and Ergobaby Metro Plus. I would like the chose the comfiest one which rides smoothly on the cobblestones and also the one with the best material. Which would you recommend for us?

Heya, Hanni,

The Ping is actually not that bad of an idea. It is on the sturdier side, the fabrics are very pleasant, and the canopy, too. I personally would probably choose between that and the Metro+, which, also, is the sturdier one, and has chunkier wheels which, for normal use, you will need. The other two are not bad, actually, just less sturdy as well as a tad slanted, so probably go for any of the first two I mentioned you prefer design-wise (or, better yet, try them in a store to know which fits you and your height and steps the best).

Be careful, though - none of these will ride smoothly over cobblestones. The wheels are too small for that - you will feel those very much, and the only solution for that would be a (much) larger-wheeled stroller.

Is it the seat of this stroller upright? I mean at 90 degrees.

Hi, Maria,

No, not at all, like all ultra-compact occasional-use travel strollers, this stroller is not upright, it is not 90 degrees when in the sitting position. All of these small strilllers will be slightly (like this one) or ver much slanted.

Hi, we picked up an ABC Ping recently.

I noticed both front wheels have a single groove across the wheel, making it a slightly bumpy ride.

Is this manufacturer's flaw or actual design? It doesn't look damaged.

We've messaged the retailer and waiting for a response.

Hi there,

I am not sure what "single groove" might mean in this case - like just one bar, axle? Well, that is quite normal, I mean, if something is not obviously missing. These ultra-compact strollers are definitely not for any terrain; all these travel strollers are meant for occasional strolls, traveling, airports, and shopping malls, and they weren't designed for everyday regular bumpy road rides. I just want to say that yes, compared to a larger stroller, they will always offer a bumpier ride, and they should not be thought about as daily pushchairs - read more about ultra-compact strollers here.

So I don't think there's anything wrong with your buggy, at least if it doesn't do anything that other similar buggies do as well.
