The pram looks good. That’s about it.

We took this home hoping to use it as an everyday pram, we are lucky to get maybe an hour a day out of my daughter in the pram, so we wanted something small and easy to fold and store (we previously had the Bugaboo Fox 3, which was amazing but way too big to take anywhere). Our streets all have flat footpaths, but they do have slight slopes due to being in a hilly area.

This pram tips over.

Every time I attempted to course correct, the pram would tip on two wheels to the side and it would take my entire strength to keep it upright.

I believe this is due to the high centre of gravity and the back wheels being closer together than the front.

For something that holds an infant, there should be no tipping whatsoever and I shouldn’t have to use my upper body strength to keep it upright- I may as well carry my kid.

Minor notes: the pram rattles right out of the box. The fold-down buttons are stiff and require some jiggling. The fold-down motion is a little awkward. And the unfold requires you to push the pram together to you can “unstick” the buttons, but this may be just that it was new and needed some breaking in. If you are taller like me, your feet will hit the cross bar between the wheels as you walk.

But the pram does look good. The fabric is nice. If you’re only ever going to use this pram in a shopping centre or the airport, it’s for you. But anywhere outside of those two places, buy something else.

We returned and ended up buying Uppababy Minu V2, while a bit heavier I am in love with this pram and have no complaints so far.

I can only assume that all the good reviews are people who think it’s normal to assist a pram to stay on 4 wheels?
