Your questions about the Mothercare XSS

1)

Hi,

I have been looking to buy either GB Pocket or the Mothercare xss. Unfortunately I cannot find it anywhere in the store or online in the UK except eBay.

Please could you kindly suggest where I can find it in UK preferably in London?

Thank you very much

Hi, Helen,

If you cannot Google it anywhere else, it just means people didn't buy it enough to still keep. I personally would go to Amazon or ebay, which you already found - and bought it from there if elsewhere the buggy is simply not in offer.

Can you fit a sunshade?

Hi, Westie,

I must say it will be very hard to impossible to fit a sun shade or sun visor to this buggy. I would say more no than yes, and if so, it should be something in the shape of a Diono Shademaker. I personally would go in a baby store to try a few out, or risk it with the Shade Maker.

I want to wash the seat and it looks detachable except for above the mesh section which attaches to the handle bars, these look like rivets. Is there a way to detach the seat from the handlebars?

Hi, Alan,

The Mothercare XSS is actually a made-for Mothercare version of the GB Pockit in different colors. That is why I enclose a fabric removal video of the GB Pockit, as that is easier to find. You'll see how to remove the textiles of your Mothercare XSS around 2:52.

Also, here's a GB Pockit+ (Plus) Stroller Workshop fabrics removal video to consult as this one is more comprehensive and in detail, and the system is pretty much the same. The 'rivets' are actually only studs.

P.S. Watch out for normal machine-washing with your stroller. Do consider the gentlest/hand wash program for sure or a proper handwash /hand cleaning of your stroller. Here is our in-depth stroller cleaning and maintenance guide to explain why to be careful as not to damage your pushchair, and also how to do it properly.

Good luck!
