parents say thx^^
  • Suspension
  • Driveability
  • Large bassinet
  • Ventilation
  • Leg cover
  • Mosquito net
  • I'm kicking in the pram when walking fast
  • Small shopping basket
  • Bulky
  • Doesn't have integrated hooks for the changing bag

Great maneuverability. It meets all the main things I expect from a pram perfectly! The Inglesina is, however, heavy. On the other hand, it rides almost by itself, so I do not have to work hard while pushing it. It is very bulky, though, but it passes through every terrain as it has a great suspension system 🙂 When my baby did not want to sleep at home, she would always fell asleep in the pram.

The bassinet is large, so a summer baby could still fit inside it even at the beginning of the winter. The canopy and leg cover protect the baby from the wind perfectly. I also like the mosquito net, which is easy to remove and clean.

However, every pram has its drawbacks.

The canopy did not protect the baby from the sun very well. The canopy is positioned high, and when the sun was low (evenings or during the winter), the sun was shining on the baby directly. We had to buy a parasol. Occasionally, something started to squeak, but my husband lubricated the chassis and wheels, and everything was fine after. The shopping basket is large but shallow, so whenever I put my shopping inside, I was hoping it would not fall out. I also did not like that everyone could see what I am carrying inside it.

When I was in a hurry, sometimes I kicked the basket or the brake. I am not tall, so I do not think it would be comfortable for taller people.

And, as I said, it is rather bulky. Whenever we were putting it in the trunk of our car, there was not much more space available. The chassis is very heavy, and I became tired of loading and unloading it from the car.

An excellent pram
