see 25 parent reviews

The Tako Acoustic is a 2in1, retro-type stroller system featuring a rocking, X-shaped chassis with large, fixed, 14” air-filled wheels. There are also the optional smaller 12” wheels available. When it comes to the storage space, apart from the wire shopping basket, you can also use the bag which can be added to the chassis or carried as a rucksack.

The mattress of the carrycot can be inclined. There is an extra belly safety strap for the child to prevent falling out of the carrycot. The reversible seat unit can be reclined flat and comes with a washable seat liner. Using adapters, you can add a car seat to the chassis. Apart from the basic accessories, the stroller comes with winter muffs too.

if you own(ed) it, own it ;-)
parents say thx^^

I would only choose this one again

4
  • Spacious carrycot
  • The wheels can go over anything
  • High weight
  • Doesn't fit all car boots

Excellent pram, I would only choose this one again.

Nice for the undemanding parents

4
  • Large inflatable wheels
  • Large carrycot and seat
  • Tall, suitable even for taller parents
  • Leather parts that tend to get dirty are super easy to clean
  • The wheels still need to be raised when turning
  • Defects
  • Large even when folded, unsuitable for frequent car travel

It is a nice stroller for the undemanding parents, those who want to ride with the stroller around the house, and not to travel by car too much.

  • traverses any terrain
  • the suspension makes the ride comfortable for the child
  • large deep bassinet (my son was in it until 9 months)
  • the seat has several positions (from sitting upright to lying down)
  • the handle of the stroller can also be positioned in different ways
  • the stroller takes up more space when folded (we don't have a station wagon, so the stroller takes up the whole trunk)
  • since it doesn't have swivel wheels, it doesn't turn by itself (which I personally don't mind)

In the village - for really harsh terrain, or in the winter in the snow, it is the best stroller. It's a tank and goes through everything without any problems.

  • Spacious
  • Sturdy
  • Easy to fold

A pram that can go everywhere and withstands everything.

Large spacious carrycot and seat as well, no problem even on the stairs. Possibility to attach a skate - buggy board for an older sibling. The only thing that went wrong for us after 2 kids is the harness buckle, which is cool to buy at a haberdashery. For me maximum satisfaction :)

A dream pram

5
  • Spacious
  • Comfortable
  • Quickly foldable
  • Stylish
  • Not suitable for a small car boot 🤣

Absolutely amazing, a dream pram. Big inflatable wheels, spacious. Top!

I think it's a great choice. We have eco leatherette on it, perfect for cleaning. The stroller still shines if I give it a soap water scrub and polish the leather with care products.

The only stupid thing, the changing bag in eco leather doesn't have a sliding long strap, but I recognize that with leatherette there would be a risk of abrasion.

The stroller is a bit heavy and bulky to store, but for our daughter, who is quite a piece, it's perfect and comfortable ☺

Perfect for the countryside

5
  • suspension
  • large wheels
  • spacious bassinet and seat for a big baby
  • plenty of accessories
  • when the paint has chipped somewhere, it rusts slightly
  • we had to weld 2 axles on a wheel - but we go over fields, meadows, forests, groves... so really difficult terrain

I wouldn't want another stroller. No bad wheels, nothing. Perfect for the countryside. It can handle rocky roads, deep snow, and a path through the woods. It folds well into the car.

It's sturdy, although quite heavy

First of all - I can't give it a great rating, even though I really would like to :) Because I haven't had another stroller to compare it to personally. BUT. What I can say is that it's great compared to the others just because it has big, inflatable wheels and great suspension. I just smile when I meet a mom who carries her baby in a stroller with plastic wheels that wobble from side to side like crazy, and rattle loudly enough that the baby probably doesn't even get a chance to sleep through the noise. This is not a threat with the Tako stroller :) Neither I nor the baby will notice a hole or a pothole, thanks to the wheels and the suspension.

It's sturdy, although quite heavy (15kg without the bassinet). It has a modern look and handles really well. Personally, I can fit my baby in the car seat at six months old, but that will probably have something to do with the fact that I'm a little person and my husband isn't exactly the kind of person I need to have heels to give him a kiss either :)

When it's cold, a big winter footmuff fits in the bassinet just fine, and there's still a fair bit of room. I haven't tried the seat unit yet - the little one doesn't sit yet, hopefully that will come soon.

The changing bag is spacious enough for everything - nappies, wet wipes, cream, a few cloth nappies, there's room for a bottle or two (tea or tea + milk). And there's plenty of room for a few little things for mommy too :)

The bottom storage bag isn't very roomy - you can fit an car seat cover, a stroller rain cover and an car seat adapter reducer, or you can pull it all out and stack groceries in - but you can't cram more than half a loaf of bread, five buns, a bottle of milk and butter in there. I carry a thermos of hot water, a cold water bottle, a bottle and a formula box. The cool thing is that it can be unzipped and thrown on your back like a real backpack :)

Oh, and lastly, the stroller comes with a sun parasol, but for me it's more of a pea-sized thing, especially the attachment for the stroller handle. But when the wind is not blowing, it serves its purpose too :)

  • excellent for off-road and snow
  • spacious bassinet
  • lots of accessories at an affordable price
  • difficult handling
  • high weight (not suitable for smaller mothers)
  • poor quality car seat
  • the colour of the stroller soon becomes lighter (fades)

I wanted a stroller with four solid wheels and for off-road use and have been very happy with this stroller. Since I live in the city and we go to the village every weekend, the Tako Acoustic has only proved positive on the village dirt roads. In town, it was heavy to manoeuvre in smaller shops (bakery, butchers, chemists, etc), and I gradually found that I was not happy with my weight (54kg) and the weight of the pushchair (18kg + baby). I had the burgundy colour and after 3 months of use, the fading from the sun was noticeable.

Not to mention the poor quality car seat, which was very striking when compared to quality car seats. Unfortunately, I didn't start following the car seat tests until after my daughter was born. This car seat breaks when it hits the car, crushes, while a quality car seat stays whole. Until now, I am horrified that I have carried my daughter in this Tako Acoustic car seat in the car. That's why I sold the stroller and bought a stroller with front swivel wheels, which I used to strongly condemn, and paid extra for a higher quality car seat with certifications.

I was happy with this pram. Spacious bassinet, big inflatable wheels thanks to which it gets everywhere - had no problem with any terrain.

Another advantage is that it rocks - both children loved to ride in it. There is also a disadvantage - they got so used to the rocking that when the stroller stopped, they were immediately up.

On the other hand, the weight, the dimensions are also a disadvantage. It is terribly heavy. By the time I folded it up and put it in the car, I was completely sweaty 😆 It doesn't fit in the trunk, or if it does, it's too big to fit and takes up the whole trunk... But if you don't need to carry the stroller in the car, you don't travel a lot, I recommend the stroller. For village hills and bad roads it is perfect.
