The basket is so shallow

  • Looks good
  • Manoeuvres beautifully
  • Good shade provided with the sun hood
  • Feels well made
  • Comfortable seat
  • Fully adjustable foot rest
  • Lies flat and sits almost upright
  • Sun shade hits the handlebar when not in use
  • Basket only takes 2.2kg
  • Basket is very shallow
  • Hard to fold/unfold
  • Feels heavy to carry

I ordered this after lots of research as I was looking for a compact, light but comfortable and stylish stroller for everyday city life with lots of public transport. I don't have a car so always on and off buses and trains and up and down steps and pavements. But I was really disappointed!

The basket is so shallow that any shopping would just fall out as I went up and down curbs. The sunshade is weirdly tall when not in use so it gets in the way of the handlebar. It's really tricky to fold and unfold - not ideal when trying desperately to fold it out the way on a busy subway. It also feels heavier than it is when carrying it folded.

I ended up sending it back!

  • Sturdy
  • Good value for the price
  • Infant cocoon/lay flat option
  • Good maneuverability
  • Handles grass, uneven terrain well
  • Well-positioned peek-a-boo window
  • Included vented raincover
  • The fold (both ways feels a bit hard)
  • Self-standing on the side when folded

I purchased this stroller new, a few weeks ago. It is really sturdy, but as a result weights a bit more than similar ultracompacts. It handles bumpy roads and grass really well, my baby is 7kgs, and lying flat, yet it offers a smooth ride on the bad countryside roads for her. I am 182 cm, and my hubby is 196 cm tall, so the extendable handlebar and the elevated crossbar at the back is really a must for a comfy walk. We tried the Yoyo before, but kept kicking the crossbar and our shoulders hurt after long walks...

The only off-putting thing is the fold and self-stand. The Metro+ self-stands on its side when folded, and not on its wheels as the previous model. In my opinion it will make the bigger round chassis part scratchy, and this stand requires 2 hands to fold out.

  • Padding
  • Light weight
  • Compact
  • Comfy
  • Nice to drive around
  • Not the sturdiest
  • No handle adjustment

I am positively surprised. Lightweight but functional, and so comfortable as it’s so padded. My little girl’s happy inside.

  • padding
  • lie-flat seat with a leg rest that goes up to protect a small child
  • really small after folding
  • combinable with a capsule
  • wheel can get noisy
  • funky hood

It's really padded, perfect for my 4-month-old and tube rides. The wheels could be quieter but I am happy with it overall.
