Handles well and is nice to push

  • Stylish/looks good
  • Feels sturdy
  • Nice to push
  • Good on all terrains
  • Easy to clean as wheels detach
  • Folds up with seat attached and to quite a reasonable size
  • Huge sun shade
  • The mechanism to detach the carry cot from the frame is very sticky (someone recently told me they put vaseline on theirs though)
  • The poppers on the basket don't stay attached on one side

We purchased the Oyster 3 travel system in Rich Navy with a silver frame and have been using it for nearly 2 years now. I love how stylish the stroller looks. It seems to cope well with all terrains and the wheels can be removed to give them a good clean if they get muddy. The stroller handles well and is nice to push, it has quite a neat turning circle. The brake is easy to use. It has a really generous sun hood and baby has always seemed comfortable. When folded the stroller is a reasonable size, especially if you remove the back wheels. Its fairly straightforward to fold and unfold and can be folded with the seat attached, sometimes the handlebar button sticks a little but this isn't really too much of a problem and sorts itself out after a bit of a jiggle. I really like this travel system and would definitely recommend.

It isn't without some small faults, though - as I said, the handlebar extension button occasionally sticks. The popper on one side of the carry basket no longer stays attached (that could be our fault for overloading the basket). When we had a newborn we never really put the carry cot on the frame as removing it was incredibly difficult, it just always felt really stuck on there - this didn't overly bother us but can appreciate this could annoy others - I saw someone with the same stroller recently and asked their thoughts and they said they just put some Vaseline on the mechanism and it was fine. To me, these issues are fairly minor, and we have definitely had value for money from this stroller. I would buy again.



It's perfect. I am waiting for one right now.

I struggle to find fault with it

  • Very sturdy
  • Easy compact fold
  • Great storage
  • Feels very secure
  • Great at navigating different terrains
  • Seat quite upright
  • Great from birth to and including toddler age
  • A little heavy
  • Could be a better sun visor

I have really enjoyed this pram and struggle to find fault with it. Would recommend.

  • Light
  • Foldable
  • Long space for napping
  • Extended sunhood
  • Ability to raise the hood higher up as the child grows
  • Padding under the head
  • None so far

We only have the seat setup. So far I haven't found any minuses. The only thing for me is that it is a bit low, but before we had a Neonato Puro and that is a high stroller. Compared to other strollers it is not that low. It's super light and goes really easy - almost by itself. It is great.

  • Comfortable and secure seat which faces both ways
  • Big basket
  • Buggy board available
  • Quite heavy
  • Extending mechanism for the handle has started catching and getting stuck in uneven position after 3 years

Great from birth to early toddlerhood. Easy drive, I've used it for almost 4 years, and the quality has been very good.

  • Versatile
  • Grows with baby
  • Easy folding
  • Lots of accessories to add on
  • Heavy car seat
  • Heavy frame
  • Does fold small with stroller attached (with winter accessories)

A great pram for growing with your baby. A lovely choice of colours. Easy to push and put up and down.



Amazing, lightweight, handles perfectly. Pleasant material. Big wheels - perfect for off-road.

  • Compact, folds in 1 piece both forward and parent-facing
  • Well maneuverable
  • Spacious, adapts to any child
  • Spacious basket
  • The front wheels are rattling, but after a little modification they are fine - not everyone wants to ride with fabric sticking out of the front wheels
  • The bassinet is one of the smaller ones

The stroller meets all our requirements. I just think that for the price it should be a bit more awesome.

  • Compact
  • Compactness and simple folding
  • Weight
  • Design
  • Driving characteristics
  • Bassinet has a nice depth
  • Large and spacious basket
  • Comfortable clicking on of the bassinet or the seat on and off the frame
  • Small bassinet
  • No bassinet hood positioning, just open or closed
  • I didn't find it suitable for all terrains

After long consideration, we decided on this pram. It is very compact and relatively lightweight. Since we live on the 3rd floor without an elevator, we needed something compact. This requirement the Oyster meets perfectly.

Especially the seat part stands out in the compactness area - it can be folded in one piece with the chassis and carried like a suitcase, which is amazing. It can also be facing in the parent direction, which is also a bonus. In essence, I do not have reservations on the seat part, perhaps up to a headrest pillow that cannot be detached.

The bassinet is not as great, unfortunately. First, it's small. I liked it's small and compact, but our little one outgrew it at the end of 4 months so we had to move to the pushchair part because she didn't fit in with a footmuff. A 70 cm mattress is not great. Another thing is that does not offer other positions of the hood - it can only be open or closed, nothing in between, which is a shame. And, also, in my opinion, a sunvisor against the sun is missing on the hood.

As for driving, it is super nice to push it around town. It's very easy to push. It can tackle light terrain, too, but really only light. I also pushed it on really bad, broken sidewalks in a vineyard part of our town, but that felt like torment. However, if you are looking for a nice, good-quality, well-made urban pram, the Oyster 3 will serve you nicely and will meet your expectations.

  • fashionable
  • durable
  • high quality
  • practical seat
  • the head rest in the seat is in the way of adding any seat liner
  • handle could be sturdier
  • narrow carrycot
  • seat could be even more upright

The carrycot felt a bit narrow but we love the seat. The handle could be sturdier but it's a durable pram nonetheless. Very fashionable. I just mind the head rest in the seat as it's difficult to fit in any seat liner.

A really nice to drive all-rounder

  • quality
  • looks
  • smaller-in-size bassinet

Loving it! A really nice to drive all-rounder.

  • Comfortable for the baby
  • Well-made
  • Steering
  • Handlebar is on the looser side
  • Carrycot is nice and deep but with a short mattress

It's nice and compact, and comfortable for the baby. The steering also feels well. The handlebar could be sturdier, like this, it's a bit noisy. We are happy with it overall.

The front wheels rattle a bit

  • nice, luxuriously looking
  • the front wheels rattle a bit

A very nice, comfily-padded pram but the front wheels rattle a bit. I would also prolong the hood.

  • Design
  • Spacious bassinet (and also the seat)
  • Easy-to-clean materials
  • Large-enough basket
  • Comfortable seat
  • Large-enough canopy
  • Wheels - driving comfort
  • Easy push, even though the chassis is heavier
  • Easy folding - mainly with the seat unit
  • Easy overall manipulation
  • Headrest pillow
  • The handlebar has a will; it moves slightly
  • Heavier chassis

A good choice - made after a long time of thinking and weighing our options.

We bought it in 2019, and after long searching, we decided to go for the Oyster 3 in the Pebble colorway. The best thing about it is the seat unit - and mainly the fact that it folds so well with the chassis. You just fold the canopy back and fold it over. All folds in one piece. The handlebar to lift it and load it in the car is also an asset that not many combination prams have.

Bassinet-wise, it seems small-ish on the first sight, but it's spacious and mainly quite deep. My DS was using it until he was 6 months - and the last months were in winter, so with a footmuff.

I can certainly recommend the Oyster 3.

Very versatile


A stylish urban as well as occasional terrain option. Very versatile! We love the looks!

I recommend the Oyster 3 especially as an urban system from birth. If you have a larger toddler, you usually look for something lighter in the pushchair setup.
