Valco Baby Snap 4 Sport Trend Tailormade

see 6 parent reviews

The Valco Baby Snap Sport Trend Tailormade is the latest and the most luxurious four-wheel Snap stroller based on the Snap 4 Trend Tailormade. It is called the Snap because of the quick, inward fold. Compared to the Snap Trend Tailormade, the Sport has higher quality all-terrain wheels with air-filled tires. Unlike the basic Snap 4, the Snap Trend Tailormade features a premium Tailormade quality seat and hood fabric in melange as well as the Trend elements: adjustable handlebar with leatherette handle grips, leatherette covered bumper bar and chassis in elegant grey. The new 4 stage Expanda hood doubled in size. The extendable hood consists of four panels including a UV mesh panel for ventilation, the back of the hood is fully covered. The new seat provides more room for the child. The profile of the tires and the spoke design have also been updated. The stroller now has a true one-handed fold without the need to release a separate safety catch.

The non-reversible seat can be reclined sufficiently even for smaller babies. The carrycot and the adapters for the car seat are also available to provide comfort for newborns. There is also an option to use the Valco newborn insert instead of the carrycot.

The BEST in every way

5

For us the BEST in every way 😃

  • quality materials
  • comfortable seat
  • big, sturdy and easy-to-access basket
  • a perfect hood with a full coverage
  • air-filled tires
  • removable child bar
  • compact fold
  • weight
  • large chassis (I take it as a downside, but I don't think it will be a downside for everyone)
  • front wheels don't \sit\" on the road that well"
  • \shallow\" seat"

This pushchair is beautifully and practically designed, but it doesn't sit well on the road, and the front wheels vibrate. I don't like its look that much either...

Not much in the price-performance ratio. I returned it.

For me, a big disappointment

3
  • Large sleeping surface
  • Air-filled wheels
  • Quite a tall handlebar, not great for short mums
  • Not sturdy enough, it tends to flip backward when the child is napping
  • The sitting position is not upright at all

I had to return the pushchair to be repaired after one walk with it (thank god for the warranty) - so, for me, a big disappointment.

  • One of the lightest strollers there is (if you don't take into account the simplest buggies of cheap trash)
  • Huge canopy that covers almost the full stroller
  • Super compact
  • Great to push around
  • Reclines almost flat (almost 180 degrees) and so, it works even for the babies that don't sit yet
  • Very easy to fold and unfold (if there are no accessories on)
  • Easy to remove the accessories
  • Practical storage pocket and a large basket
  • Various accessories to choose from (even \stupidities\" like a phone holder)"
  • No suspension
  • Handlebar can be adjusted, but it only has three relatively unusable positions - normal, higher and even higher
  • Accessories like the bumper bar, leg cover, bottle holder have to be removed before folding
  • Everything (except for the bumper bar) has to be bought extra

There NO suspension, but it has inflatable wheels that are better on uneven surfaces, compared to the classic foam wheels. Not that great on real uneven terrain, however,

Weight is stated differently everywhere. The manufacturer says 15lbs = 6.8kg. Different web pages said 6.2 kg to 9 kg. I put it on a scale and it showed 8.4kg (18.5 lbs).

Leg rest positions - yes, there are 4, but one goes upwards, meaning to use it, you would have to 'break' the baby's legs, so the fourth position is pretty much unusable.

  • It's lightweight
  • Spacious
  • With a large hood
  • With a large basket
  • With an adjustable leg rest
  • It folds inwards, so no dirty inside of the sitting surface when you store it in your trunk (or anywhere else)
  • Only three positions of the handlebar
  • Leg cover/apron is sold separately and not so smooth to put on

An excellent pushchair with comfortable manipulation. Nice design, but I would appreciate more colors to choose from.

Absolutely not worth the money

2
  • Lightweight
  • Spacious
  • The wheels were faulty from the beginning (even new!)
  • Metal parts of poor quality
  • Tailormade fabric materials poor as well
  • Eco-leather handlebar cover
  • Squeaky handle

I was looking forward to this pushchair since I was happy with the basic Snap 4 with my firstborn son. After a few days, I just got very disappointed, because the wheels were faulty, vibrating and turning like crazy. There is, to add to it, a gap between the chassis and the canopy. The Eco-leather handlebar covers slide down with use. Also, the handle started to squeak very loudly. After that, I put the pushchair away, because I couldn't take it anymore... Today, after I put it all together and up, I found out that an important metal part located in the lower part, where the rear axle with brake, just broke. It's completely unusable, so I am filing a claim. I must say I wouldn't want it for free even, anymore, and I paid the full price for it :woman-facepalming: Absolutely not worth the money.
