Moon Scala

DISCONTINUED in 2021
see 4 parent reviews

The Moon Scala is the highest model of the brand for 2018. It is a luxurious 2in1 stroller system with a rather robust chassis featuring smaller front foam wheels and large rubber wheels. The Scala is based on the popular Nuova, compared to which, it has much more detailing, the seat unit is positioned higher, the carrycot is more spacious, the handlebar is adjusted telescopically and the shopping basket is even deeper.

The reversible seat unit features an XXL, extendable and ventilated hood and can be reclined fully. The leg rest is adjustable as well. A newborn will be comfortable in the carrycot or an optional car seat. Adapters for the car seat are already included with the stroller.

The Scala is available in the luxurious Sport, Style or Fashion editions only. The Scala Sport comes in dark colors and dynamic red details. The Scala Lotos from the Fashion edition is featuring contrasting pale flower embroidery on dark fabric and a hood with 3D butterflies. The Style edition includes the Scala Coffee with a dark chassis, matching fabrics and a brown circle on the wheels and the Scala Cream with a dark base and contrasting cream hood and brown details.

parents say thx^^
  • carrycot
  • carrycot hood
  • large wheels
  • tall-parents-friendly handle
  • sandal-friendly brake
  • smaller seat, only 84 cm in length
  • smallr seat hood
  • hard to get up curbs
  • heavy

We were deciding between the Nuova and the Scala. The Scala won because of the telescopic handlebar which is so much better for us tall parents. We have space to step in when pushing it.

The carrycot is large and spacious, and its hood is so very nice... The seat is on the smaller side, I am guessing good for maybe a year and a half.

What I am not so fond of would be the basket - it is deep but smaller rather than larger. Also, the weight - it is a heavy pram. Because of that, loading it in the car is not a pleasant experience.

But it's at least nice for our cracked sidewalks. And one last thing - the getting up a curb... it is not the easiest. I guess a workout is a good thing to lose weight, though!

  • perfect for us 🥰
  • loading needs my husband's strength 😊

I own the Scala '20, and I am 161 cm tall. I am happy with it, and wouldn't change it for any other pram. Just with the loading I need help from my husband - but he'll gladly do it, and I have a reason to take him everywhere with me and little Nataly.

Extremely heavy

  • High quality

  • Carrycot shakes very much even if clicked on the chassis properly

High quality, easy assembly and manipulation, and all-terrain capability. It is, however, extremely heavy. Also, the carrycot shakes very much even if clicked on the chassis properly.

  • elegant
  • large wheels good for terrain
  • sturdy chassis
  • quality fabrics and details, sewing
  • black color doesn't overheat
  • hood

After two months, we're happy with it. It pushes nicely and the workmanship is also very good. The fabrics feel quality, robust. The chassis is also sturdy, solidly made. The large wheels are good for dirt roads just as much as for our bad sidewalks.

If I could change something, it would be the hood. The loud clicking of the hood when it is being positioned 🤨 and it can only be fully open or fully retracted, nothing in between.

We have it in the Lotos edition.
