Mutsy Icon

The soft-shaped, L-shaped-frame compact Dutch
.eli
see 7 parent reviews

The Musty Icon is new for 2019. An innovative, more rounded shape of this full-size Mutsy stroller or stroller system gives the Icon a modern, ergonomic look. It may also attract you with the leatherette details combined with luxurious, padded materials. The Icon is not only versatile but quite compact too. It is so thanks to the rear wheels that are folding underneath the chassis. You can even fold it with the seat unit attached to the chassis in both directions. The L-shaped chassis, typical for Mutsy strollers, comes with a soft suspension system as well as an easily accessible shopping basket and larger, EVA foam wheels. The Icon is suitable mainly for urban use.

The conventionally-styled, comfy seat unit can be fully adjusted in the backrest as well as the leg rest part, and it offers a full recline. It includes a matching seat liner matching to the style of the hood. Optionally, you can purchase a carrycot as well as adapters for well-known car seats. A variety of optional accessories is also available so that you can customize the Icon to your liking.

parents say thx^^

The price is way too high

2

Looks nice, but the price is wrong - way too high. It's absolutely not worth that much; this should be in the price range of ~ £400, so half of its price !!! Easy to push but makes a noisy sound when pushing - and it's a small pram, not sturdy at all. I do not recommend it! Had lots of problems with delivery in UK!! 😞☹️☹️

We had al lot of problems

1

We had al lot of problems with the Mutsy Icon.

  • Nice, wide wheels with suspension
  • Comfy padding and good quality fabrics
  • I love the possibility of telescoping as well as rotating the handlebar to adjust for a right pushing position
  • Memory buttons = easy removing the carrycot/seat unit
  • Lay flat
  • Higher weight
  • The fold is compact only when you remove the wheels, it is also not always smooth (but the folding of the rear axle inwards is really a nice touch)
  • The handlebar is a little looser than I would have liked
  • Short leg rest and overall short, narrower sleeping surface = better for smaller kids
  • Folding takes more steps

It's a nice, however, lower-to-the-ground pram with short canopies on both pushchair and the carrycot. I also found the basket too open for my needs, and the seat won't certainly last the full three years. But the push is very nice, the fabrics are good quality and easy to clean, and the overall child-parent comfort is definitely there.

  • driveability
  • looks
  • hood
  • it's a bit low to the ground

A nice pram system for about two years of use; after that, you will need to move to a more spacious and preferably compact buggy. I like the looks. My tall husband is not that thrilled about the height of the carrycot/seat unit on the chassis.

  • lay-flat position
  • very compact fold (for a full.size stroller system)
  • more spacious than the Evo I had a couple of years ago
  • beautiful fabrics and overall design
  • driveability
  • large wheels
  • superb suspension
  • no stones in the wheels' foam
  • accessible basket
  • short canopies
  • more steps to fold the stroller
  • could be more lightweight
  • lower to the ground, so not perfect for very tall parents
  • I would make the seat a bit bigger, mainly the leg rest

As usual from Mutsy, the fabrics and overall design look luxurious and stylish. I love the stroller, and my little one loves to ride in it. The push is incredible - for a mainly urban stroller, the suspension and the wheel size is just great. I would love; however, it would be more lightweight, since it's all kind of lower to the ground, and also, I would prolong the leg rest and maybe the overall seat unit. Oh, and the canopies on both carrycot and the seat unit could be longer, or two-times extendable - but this is typical for the Mutsy brand. A sunshade or the UV net that you can optionally buy will take care of it.

  • streamlined, stylish design with attention to detail (like the rear part of the backrest covered in fabric as well as with metal logo, or the perforation on the adjustable handlebar)
  • suspension system
  • compact fold
  • memory buttons (even though strange to operate at first
  • reversible, comfortable seat unit with side protection
  • magnetic viewing window with mesh
  • velcro-on apron
  • hoods are on the short side, and the seat unit's one feels a bit flimsy
  • 70 cm mattress in the carrycot
  • basket not deep enough
  • leg rest misses a wipe-clean layer
  • handlebar has some give

I was really hoping the carrycot and its hood will be bigger in the newest model. It's nothing serious, but I would appreciate using it longer than 4 and a half months. And about that hood... in summer, the sun sometimes does shine straight on the baby, since it's not long enough and the apron (otherwise great and high-quality, with a handy pocket for the pacifier or another little thing) is not high enough. But we put there a Dooky shade.

Design is beautiful to look at, fabrics seem durable, structured-like, and those leatherette elements are a great touch. Both the pram mode and the pushchair mode are smooth to push with nice wheel size (which, however, makes to fold more bulky, and much nicer when you remove them) and real suspension.

I enjoy pushing the stroller, and my DD riding in it. I can sincerely recommend purchasing this (if you're ok with those downsides I mention), even though it is not the cheapest option. And one more thing - I strongly recommend getting the sold-separately, original footmuff. It fits so well and has a rear part preventing sliding.
