miniuno Toura

The affordable 2in1 for smaller babies
.eli
see 9 parent reviews

The miniuno Toura is a simple, affordable stroller system with a 2in1 bucket-type seat unit that can be converted into a bassinet (and the other way around). Thanks to its simplicity, the Toura is a nice-looking first pram suitable from birth until it is time for a lighter, spacious stroller.

The carrycot-to-seat convertible pramette unit is spacious as a pram but much less so as a pushchair. The stroller system will, therefore, last you a shorter time compared with a separate seat unit. The urban chassis features only mild suspension and solid rubber wheels, and the frame can only be folded after the seat/bassinet is removed. You will appreciate the higher-positioned storage basket, the adjustable push bar, and the compatibility with a dedicated car seat with adapters that can be bought as a while 3in1 travel system set. The basic set comes with a rain cover, and a footmuff included.

parents say thx^^

So far so good

4
  • The price
  • Easy to manoeuvre
  • Got to seperate to fold
  • Frame scratches easily

Bought this for my 2nd baby and not gonna lie I was extremely sceptical with the price! I seen it online and couldn’t see any reviews etc so I went around a few shops to see if any had them in stock finally found one and it looked ok for the price so I bought it! My little one is now 4 months old and this is used daily for school runs which is up and down a hill and though a small muddy park and so far so good! Not had any issues at all! With my 1st I spend over 1k on a silver cross and I honestly don’t see a big massive difference with this one which is a fraction of the price.

  • The instruction manual (pages 6 and 7) is not helpful on indicating key recline mechanism for converting from pushchair seat to pram/carrycot mode once unit is licked on via the "attachment plugs". Need to press "seat unit recline handle" button while tipping the hood part of the unit downwards

The instruction manual could be clearer about setting carrycot/pram mode from pushchair seat mode which the "attachment plugs" were set to on unpacking. If your seat arrives in pushchair mode, engage the "plugs" into the fixed chassis "seat unit" holder and THEN press the "Seat unit recline handle" (page 7) as you tip the section with the hood downwards. I have asked the suppliers and manufacturers to make the instructions clearer so that instructions at page 12, figs 19 and 20, make sense, and you are not left trying to swivel immovable hubs for several days like I was!

Faulty brake

2
  • Footmuff
  • Brake

Used it a couple of to times, we'd use public transport with brake on and it tilted on its side, luckily abated to stop my premature baby being seriously injured. Asked for refund due to faulty break, and refused to issue one.

  • Price point
  • Good package if you don't get a faulty one
  • Poorly made
  • Lack of cushioning
  • Faulty product
  • Unfit for purpose

I bought this because I loved the functionality of it, and it came at a good price, however, it has been used for less than a year and in that time has had two replacement frames as the part that's welded together has not been done properly so the frames made really loud creaky noise and were coming apart.

The screws on the basket came loose and had to keep tightening, and today the mechanism used to lower the seat unit has broken - the wire has snapped so it's now stuck in a seated position which is not ideal when your baby falls asleep!

Car seat has minimal padding and the raincover although does the job doesn't have anyway of securing it to the frame.

Very poor quality

1.0
  • cheap
  • occasional use is ok
  • very weak seat unit
  • the frame is very rattly
  • screws coming off the shopping basket

Very poor quality. The seat unit is very weak, me and 2 other friends have the Tourer all had the same fault seat frame snapped near the footrest with 3-4 months. The frame is weak the screws are coming off - waste of money and the repairs take forever.

  • value for money, with all the accessories
  • nice starter pram
  • telescoping handle bar
  • short seat
  • short leg rest
  • feels a bit cheap
  • folds in two pieces
  • thin fabrics, I wouldn't recommend this for a winter baby
  • no machine-washable fabrics
  • basket access

I will use this the first months, but I cannot wait for a more high-quality pushchair. Really nice-looking and the price is really to be appreciated, but I am afraid the quality is simply lacking because of that.

Ok, but the low price can be felt

  • Nice price for a lot of things in the package
  • Bassinet feels spacious
  • One-hand positioning
  • Not for terrain
  • Bulky
  • Unsure about the seat
  • Bad storage access
  • I miss a thicker carrycot mattress, I had to buy an extra one

It's ok, but the low price can be felt.

The pram looks better on paper than IRL

4

I am still undecided. I like quite a few features, but the pram looks better on paper than IRL. Still a nice value for money, especially from birth.

  • price
  • not a bad design
  • canopy protection
  • adjustable handlebar
  • small seat
  • cheap-ish fabrics
  • no name car seat that is plastic-y
  • no way to get into the basket with the carrycot
  • wheels rattle on bumps

There's quite a lot of good, the first being the low price. I am, however, disappointed by the car seat which doesn't seem to have any ADAC/OAMTC testing and looks like a cheap plastic thing. Another downside for me is the fact that the seat unit feels very small, perhaps because it is framed and the hood is so low, right above the seatback. I will be surprised if this will last longer than 1.5 years of age, comparing with how my firstborn was growing...

Your questions about the miniuno Toura

1)

How do I get the carrycot to lay flat? I’ve tried lifting the seat unit recline handle and pushing it but it literally will not move. It came with the seat unit bits that click in at an angle for the pushchair not the carrycot so I can’t get it to lay flat and I can’t have my newborn sitting up. The instructions are not clear at all and I don’t know what to do.

Hey, Jess,

You need to release all the straps and buckles on the underside of the seat/bassinet. After it's all released and loosened up, you need to use the lever right over the hood, lift it, and adjust the angle to a full lie flat.

Just watch the carrycot to seat in ths video (from ~1:15) and do that just the other way around.

Hi,

Do the side of the pram move so it lies down? The attachments are facing at an angle so it will only fit onto the pram for the child to sit up. However we need the crib as it is a new born.

Hi, Rachel,

The bassinet converts to the seat (advice versa), so that the pram works for a newborn as well as a toddler. So you CAN loosen all so that you form a lie-flat, deep bassinet, and later on, clip the straps together so that the part forms a seat. So yes, in that bassinet setup, it will work for a newborn, after loosening all the straps and adjusting the angle, the part will be lie-flat. Definitely don't put your newborn on anything else that a lie-flat surface.

Hi,

Is there a carrycot mattress suitable for the Toura system?

Hey, Helen,

No, there's no original or dedicated mattress. The carrycot is also rather shallow so no "universal" mattress should go in. I recommend going for some universal seat liner instead, or use a good puffy foomuff to add some softness.

Can you strip the pram off to be washed?

Hi, Nic,

No, you will need to handwash it only.

Here's an article of mine that should help you with cleaning and maintenance of your stroller.

Hi,

I’ve got the full travel system which is great; however, the car set itself there seems to be an issue with as the straps will not go any tighter and are extremely loose, there’s a good 3-4 inch gap around the baby when it’s pulled to the tightest point, and they will not physically go any tighter so I am unable to use it as it makes it unsafe to travel in, is this normal with one of these seats, or is there an actual issue with the straps on mine?

Hey, Ktn,

This is definitely not normal. It definitely depends on whether your baby was a preemie, or is unusually small (in which case you shouldn't use the car seat and either wait to travel with the baby, or get different, small babies-dedicated one), or there is really an issue. In any case, I would try different car seats to see if there's the same problem there, too, and would try to claim warranty or ask the seller/distributor/customer service for help with replacing or adjusting that.

Hi,

I am I’m desperate need of help! I got this pushchair last month, I’ve used the car seat adaptors for the first time, and I’ve put them in the wrong way and got them stuck 😭 So the grey clips are facing inwards.

Hiya,

Well, I cannot help you much here. If it went in, it should go out, so try to push in the levers to loosen it up a bit and then just pull them out with brute force. Nothing else can be done unfrotunately.

I have the travel system but do not like the car seat. Are car seats universal? Would another car seat work on this frame?

Hey, Ellie,

No, unfortunately car seats are not universal. Some, bigger brands have the same attachment system, so Maxi-Cosi/Cybex/Joie/Kiddy/Recaro are interchangeable. However, others have different adapters - like Chicco, or Graco, or Britax Roemer, and then the "no-brand" car seats often do, too.

This model unfortunately only supports the included car seat and doesn't offer any other brand compatibility as there are no adaptors available. You can get another car seat but won't be able to use it on this frame.

I have the miniuno Toura with the miniuno SecureFix Group 0+ car seat/infant carrier, which comes with a car seat wedge. However, I do not know how to use this for my newborn, can you shed some light?

Hi, Dom,

The wedge is normally used for small babies to have a bit flatter surface for them - to be too "sitting up" is very unhealthy for them. You will only have the wedge in the car seat at the start, so just leave it in the space where it fits so that the car seat is not that bent (plus the head of the baby is more secure), and when/if your baby seems too tight with it, you just remove it. There is not given time that happens, some babies are larger and don't need that wedge at all.

Hello,

Is the car seat flight safe? Has it been approved to be safe to use whilst flying?

Hi, Ziisii,

The car seat is a very simple one, and I would not expect much of that. If it passed the requirements to be sold, it means it is safe enough to be sold, though there are no ADAC or OAMTC tests for this one, nor certificates for plane travel. You can take it on board though, and the basic safety measures are there. Nothing more.

My mil has bought our Pram for us and it is lovely. The only issue we have is the carry cot. The buttons parallel don't do anything and don't hold the bottom of the frame? Can anyone shed any light on this?

Hey, Emma,

I am not sure I understand your question. There are two sets of buttons on the sides - the ones in the middle, which, after pulling both upwards, release the carrycot from the frame. The lower ones are used for positioning the leg rest AFTER converting the carrycot into the seat setup - after working the straps and making a seat unit from the carrycot, you can position the legs when pushing both buttons in and moving the leg rest.
