Comfortable for the baby

4
  • excellent maneuverability in narrow places and uneven pavements
  • manageable folding and lifting by a petite person
  • comfortable for baby
  • sturdy
  • sun cannopy does not stay in many positions
  • to climb pavements, the fabric is stepped on
  • huge carrycot (if bought together) for everyday walks

After eight month use, I am generally very satisfied with this stroller. It seems comfortable for the baby (now eight months old), although for now it is used with the additional Inglesina baby snug pad.

It is sturdy, can withstand the narrow, uneven, full of obstacles Greek pavements, and also high steps and mildly uneven terrain e.g. parks, country roads). It is also used with the Cybex Cloud T car seat and the Maxi-Cosi adapters, for which I had asked Strollberry whether it would be compatible and was pleasantly surprised with a two-hour reply (thank you Strollberry).

It was bought with the carrycot, which was huge and heavy for everyday walks (especially for a petite person like me) but was chosen for its night-time sleep approval rating.

The one-hand folding mechanism works ok with a little practice, either with or without the seat, and the stroller can fit in the boot of a VW Polo.

I have only two drawbacks to mention, one is that the sun cannopy does not stay in many positions, and second that to climb pavements I have to step on the fabric and maybe touch the staff inside the underneath storage basket (perhaps it was designed for countries/places that have ramps everywhere?)

  • Lightweight
  • Large, comfortable bassinet
  • Easy fold
  • Stylish
  • Suspension

We've had this for 2 months now. We've only used the bassinet so far but we love it. It's super easy to fold down with one hand and lightweight. It doesn't have the best suspension but it is equivalent to others we tested of the same size.

It's a love/hate relationship

It's a love/hate relationship with this stroller.

I really love some parts (carrycot <3, fabrics, padding, design, finishes, lie-flat seat, large hood in theory...) but I am so annoyed by others (super low carrycot, weak suspension, wobbly hood, front wheels getting stuck, quite a bulky fold - I expected a smaller fold for an urban model)...

I would recommend it for city living, SHORT parents, and mostly for from-birth use. It is super lovely and the carrycot even if low to the ground, is sooo comfy for newborns... But it's not as comfy for tall dads, bad terrain, and if you expect something super sturdy.

  • Wobbly canopy

I love love love the low weight, the incredibly comfortable bassinet, and the fold. When you get used to folding it is so quick. I am glad the textiles can be removed, and, in theory, I like the huge canopy of the seat, too.

My problems with this pram include the weak suspension - I wish it would be softer... and, also, the loose feel of the canopy. It wobbles back and forth when fully extended and the pushchair goes over bumps and such...

If you're a petite mom living in town, you'll like this as much as I do. So I recommend it, but not for tall parents nor for bad terrain. On smooth-ish roads and for shorter people, YES!
