  • low weight
  • easy and quick folding with one hand
  • carrying handle and strap
  • can be reclined to an almost lying down position
  • also suitable for larger children
  • carry bag and rain cover included
  • the leg rest collapses under the weight of the child's legs, it cannot be positioned
  • the canopy is more of a design accessory - it doesn't protect much from the sun, not at all from the cold
  • narrower seat
  • shallow shopping basket
  • handle made of poor quality (smelly) foam

A stroller suitable for fast transfers. Very easy and fast folding - after folding it has the size and weight of a full "plastic bag" from a shop, so I ran up the stairs with it in my other hand and a bag on my shoulder. I was also able to fold and unfold the stroller with the little one in my arms.

Those are the biggest advantages of the stroller, otherwise it's really only for short and easy strolls. The backrest can be folded down almost to a full recline, but the legs have already started to protrude at 9 months, so it's not a comfortable sleeping position. The leg rest is not adjustable and not sturdy - it folds down a bit under the weight of the legs. Until the baby's feet reach the plastic support down on the structure (estimated to be around 2 years of age), the baby's feet will still be dangling out. The canopy is just kind of makeshift, it doesn't protect much from the sun or wind, and it doesn't even have a window to watch the child. The seat is narrow, I can't imagine using it with a footmuff, but I don't think that's even necessary - I wouldn't take the stroller out in the winter.

Otherwise it's pretty well designed for taller children, my older daughter (just under 3 years old - 100cm) didn't look grown up in it at all. The shopping basket is shallow, not much fits in it - a rain cover and handbag ;-) The frame is lightweight but quite solid, a little bit cushioned, it creaks here and there under more weight, but it's nothing terrible. Only the handle is very narrow and made of some poor quality foam, because it made my hands stink every time. The wheels are tiny, but they are enough for this type of stroller. I wouldn't try any snow or terrain - I've walked on the grass with it a few times and worked quite hard to push it there. As a second stroller (in the car, for travel...) I recommend it; as a single stroller, definitely not.
