Ickle Bubba Globe is a luxuriously-looking compact stroller suitable for traveling as well as urban errands and walks. The looks are not the only attraction of the Globe - they are combined with the included extra accessories - the 2in1 footmuff you can zip off to create a seat liner and the drinks holder - to persuade you to notice the buggy. A lie-flat recline operated by a lever (not a strap) mechanism, an integrated shoulder strap to carry your stroller, and the folded dimensions that comply with some airlines' criteria for a piece of carry-on luggage are the next advantages of the Globe stroller, making it a stylish candidate to accompany you on your travels.

parents say thx^^
  • Good extras
  • Shoulder strap
  • Light weight
  • Good on all terrains and easy to manoeuvre
  • Handle is quite flimsy
  • The footmuff comes down really low and pretty much only covers from the knees down which seems pointless
  • Basket isn’t very big
  • Hood doesn’t fully cover the baby when laying down

Bought as our holiday pram and a spare for my parents. I think it’s good for the price, I probably wouldn't use it as my everyday pram as the frame is definitely not as sturdy as my Bugaboo but for a spare, it’s great. The folding takes a bit of getting used to, but once you’ve done it a few times, you get the hang of it

If you are taking it on holiday I’d recommend the protective bag as it essentially turns the buggy into a backpack so easy to carry around the airport.

Avoid!!

  • Compact
  • Rain cover ripped within 6 weeks.
  • Wheels badly designed and tend to lock.
  • Brake will lock by itself when pushing the buggy.
  • Shopping trip today on flat surfaces it was practically all unusable, we have had it only 20 months and it is only used max 1-2 times per week!
  • Avoid!!

We bought this as an investment to get a decent pushchair. Really disappointed with the functions.
