Chicco Activ3

see 5 parent reviews

The Chicco Activ3 is an all-terrain three-wheeler suitable also for jogging. The tires are filled with foam, which makes them similar to air-filled ones, but without the risk of a puncture. The rear suspension is fully adjustable. The handlebar features a soft organizer with bottle holders, a central brake and a lever mechanism to lock the front wheel, which makes everything you may need when pushing the stroller extremely accessible. What is more, you only need one hand to fold the Activ3. For a more compact fold, you can fold the front forward wheel forward or remove it altogether.

The softly padded, front-facing seat offers enough space even for older children. The backrest can be reclined quite deep - almost completely flat. The hood provides good protection against wind, rain, and UV rays too. The double-sided cover will close one of the two viewing windows so that you can choose which one is better for you to use at the given moment. A car seat or the spacious, reclinable carrycot usable also in the car is available for your newborn, creating a travel system. You don’t need any adapters for attaching the carrycot or the car seat to the chassis. The Activ3 is usually available as a 3in1 stroller system with the carrycot and the car seat plus base, but you can find an offer for a stroller only.

parents say thx^^

Suitable for sports activities

  • Appearance
  • Variability
  • Even a 4-year-old child can sleep in it
  • Can handle any terrain

A great pushchair. The seat is very spacious, fits even an older child. Easy to use. Suitable for sports activities - skating, running, hiking, etc. Satisfaction.

  • large wheels
  • easy to fold when in pushchair mode (with seat)
  • suitable for a tall parent
  • parent organizer
  • a feeling of a not-so-tightly attached carrycot (on the other hand, it never fell off)
  • no changing bag included, and I couldn't even find a Chicco one in the color we had

We bought it as a 3in1 set in February 2019, Dove Grey color version. We are very happy with it; it pushes very well. We were just sorry that we saw it in the red color in the promotional video, but we were told that that colorway is already discontinued when we asked for it.

Another downside was that we couldn't go try it out before buying it, it was not offered by any store around us. Eventually, we just ordered it online.

  • Easy to push
  • Quite bulky when being loaded in the car

It's fantastic to use while sporting, running or in-line skating. The bassinet is kinda small, but the seat is super-spacious.

Youll use it for a long time

An excellent pushchair... and you'll use it for a long time to add to it. We own it for four years and three months already, and still, my daughter not just fits in it, but also can nap if when wants to. It is very spacious.

  • large, spacious carrycot
  • the carrycot can be used in the car instead of a car seat (from birth to 10 kg)
  • lightweight but stable
  • pushes great, even with one hand
  • suitable for the city as well as for all-terrain (garden, forest paths, snow, etc.)
  • easy to fold and quite compact
  • height-adjustable handlebar
  • parent organizer for your small items (like a phone or keys, and a drink as well...)
  • spacious, easy-to-access basket
  • the only downside would be the non-reversible seat (the fact that it cannot parent-face)

We are absolutely thrilled with it. The only downside for me is the fact that you cannot reverse the seat to face you. We own a 3in1 Trio set in red color.

Your questions about the Chicco Activ3

1)

Hi,

Where can I buy the carrycot that can be used with the Chicco Activ3?

Hello,

The carrycot is mostly sold in the same shops that sell the pushchair, really. If they don't offer the carrycot part, e.g., online, don't hesitate to write them and ask about the availability of the bassinet part. Even I ran into the Activ 3 from Chicco in a shop and they also sold the bassinet on-site.

In some countries, however, the model nor the arrycot aren't available anymore, as I noticed. Do try classifieds in that case, many mums bought the Trio stroller system with it, and might be willing to sell it separately.

The carrycot is the least used/least strain put-on part on a pram - and should be, therefore, in an almost-like-new condition.
