  • Great price
  • Adjustable handle
  • Wheels that can't puncture
  • Lovely included cosy toe
  • Front wheels get stuck in small ruts/uneven paving (a lot, where we live)
  • Brake can't be applied with buggyboard attached
  • No fastening for rain cover in car seat mode
  • Basket inaccessible in bassinet mode

I bought this travel system whilst pregnant last summer. I wanted solid wheels, having had many a puncture in the past, with previous, tyred pushchairs. I specifically wanted a bassinet, not having had one before with my previous babies. However, my baby is long, so has almost outgrown the bassinet in three months!

We haven't used the car seat much, but have used the bassinet almost daily. I like the adjustable handle, but find it doesn't feel as sturdy as other pushchairs I've had (a lot, over the past twenty years!). I like the basket size but can't access it with the bassinet in situ. Our change bag is backpack style, so has to lie on its back under the bassinet - not great for preventing milk spillage!

Overall, I'm happy with the Journey so far, and the price was great. I like the included footmuff and raincover, although there's nothing to hold it in place when using with the car seat. A clothes peg or two were my solution to that problem!

  • looks good
  • works OK
  • usable from birth
  • price was nice
  • the wheels rattle

The wheels are rather noisy. Other than that, I am happy with it.

Turning feels very hard

  • look
  • 2in1 solution with a travel system option
  • adjustable handle
  • frame scratches easily
  • driving& turning is hard
  • heavy weight
  • fiddly buckle

To me, turning feels very hard. The overall push is kind of cumbersome. Maybe it's because I am short, or maybe it just doesn't fit me, idk. But I feel like working out when pushing it. I can't wait for the time when we swap for a buggy.

It has done it's job

  • comfortable
  • sturdy
  • adjustable handle
  • a bit bulky
  • two-piece fold

A great pram, really! It has done it's job, even though there were a few things I would change about it.

  • The design
  • The steering
  • The room
  • The basket size
  • The weight
  • The folded size
  • The car seat is not comfortable

It's quite large, but that also means room. I like the style and the affordable price. I am also happy about the steering qualities.

A large pram, but it feels durable

We love it. It's a large pram, but it feels durable.

Great value for money

A great value for money for those savvy moms. Sturdily bult, and nice-looking. Just the fold is a bit difficult, and yes, it is not the smallest pram.

  • carrycot space
  • practical features
  • price
  • two hand fold
  • not much suspension
  • bulky fold
  • foam handle
  • handle adjustment is not very smooth, like something is wrong inside
  • fabrics are not machine washable

I liked the sturdy chassis and a flip-flop friendly brake 👏 The ride is a bit stiff, however, and the fold is quite bulky, so that is good to know beforehand. The 2in1 pram/pushchair system is practical, even if maybe not the most long-lasting.
