  • Easy to steer with one hand
  • Large basket
  • Long enough bassinet, fits a large footmuff
  • Large canopy
  • Adjustable handle
  • Easy to fold
  • No suspension
  • Very rattly

I am satisfied with the bassinet. It is long and deep - we have an autumn baby and it has plenty of space even with a footmuff.

The stroller is very easy to operate with one hand and the basket can carry quite a large purchase. The stroller is easy to fold.

But it has one big disadvantage, namely the foam wheels + it is without suspension - already from a distance we are heard because of how it rattles, every grain or small pebble shakes the frame... so it's only suitable for completely smooth trails. Every little irregularity on a city sidewalk I have to walk carefully and lift the front wheels so the little one doesn't shake too much. When we trade for a pushchair, I'll be looking for off-road - inflatable wheels first.

  • Light
  • Foldable
  • Easy to use
  • Spacious
  • There's nothing to reproach

Lightweight, compact stroller not only for the city. It can handle light natural terrain, meadow, well-travelled dirt road... The wheels are not very hard, I would compare them to well inflated inflatable wheels. Spacious bassinet, wonderfully long and deep, just a tad bit bigger. Spacious basket under the stroller. A great foot brake. And it's perfect to "jump" up and down the stairs thanks to the lack of suspensions - it's not a rocking stroller, but the last really rocking strollers were the ones when we were little 😉

The pushchair is great

  • Pretty
  • Large canopy with possibility of further extension
  • Spacious enough - fits a 90cm two year old just fine
  • Large shopping basket
  • Sports seat can rotate in both directions
  • 4 recline positions including full recline
  • It does not have a window in the canopy for checking the child
  • Not colourfast - so faded after less than a year of use that the canopy extension and the footrest look like they belong to a different stroller ☚ī¸

We bought the Vario chassis and the seat separately, so I won't be reviewing the bassinet or the car seat. The pushchair is great, easy to use, roomy, goes to full recline with one hand (and you can lift it with one 😉 ), and you can adjust the legs. For us, the fact that you can turn the seat in both directions was a big must, as we bought it for a 6-month-old and I wanted to keep an eye on him.

But it does have two faults - the canopy doesn't have a pee-a-boo window so you can't see the baby when it's pulled open, and I don't know if it's everyone's fault or if we bought a faulty piece, but after less than a year of use, the colour has completely faded wherever the light hit the pram.
