Valco Baby Snap 4 Sport Trend Tailormade

see 15 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.

parents say thx^^

Nice looking, great to handle

  • Light
  • Superbly compact
  • Pretty looking
  • Front wheels sometimes behave weirdly 🙈
  • The hood lets the wind blow in

A great choice for me. Nice looking, great to handle :)

  • Lightweight
  • Compact
  • Leg positioning
  • Back positioning
  • Ventilation when baby is lying down, can just have a mesh behind their head - great in summer
  • Four-piece hood
  • Large storage basket
  • Price

A great pushchair. Compact, lightweight, with a - literally - huge storage basket. We are extremely satisfied, even my husband praises it.

A top of the line stroller in every way

  • Lightweight
  • Compact
  • Spacious
  • Extended canopy
  • Large wheels
  • Look
  • No suspension
  • Higher price

For me a top of the line stroller in every way. It's definitely a leap up from the almost 15kg pushchair from a 3in1 set we had before.

The stroller is compact and most importantly really lightweight. It handles well. The canopy can be extended almost to the child's feet. It has a beautiful look, the leatherette handles are just snazzy. Unfortunately it doesn't have suspension, but it's not a stroller for difficult terrain anyway.

Not practical for me

4
  • The canopy opens up to your feet, ensuring darkness while the little one sleeps
  • Easy to handle
  • Beautiful design
  • Winter footmuff - points down, since it cannot be attached anywhere - Valco has a net behind the backrest, so the footmuff cannot be attached through there either
  • The handle has been wobbling since the second week

A beautiful stroller, driving characteristics great, but for practical needs, not as awesome. The seat belts are very difficult to lengthen or shorten, I actually have to set aside time before a trip to do this, because you can't do it right away with a baby in the stroller. A footmuff cannot be attached. The handle wobbles... Disappointing for me, not practical for me.

For me, the Valco Trend is a great choice. I changed our classic Valco Snap for this one. I'm tall, so the longer handle - and adjustable - is a big bonus, plus I had to adjust the step a bit with the old Valco Snap (not a problem with this one). Plus the handle doesn't narrow down, which bothered me with the old model.

But I often read on Facebook the problem with the front wheels and chassis with this type of Valco, so for us the front wheel rubbed a little, but over time riding on rough terrain the rubbing disappeared.

The only drawback over the old Valco is the seat belts - they are not sewn on the side with a plastic loop where I tied a pad behind them, but in the middle of the seat - and the plastic loop for attaching the pad is missing.

Otherwise a top-of-the-line pushchair for me though. Lightweight, folds up with the sitting part inside so I don't have to take the footmuff off when folding it into the car. Too bad it doesn't have suspension.

  • design
  • height
  • adjustable handle
  • large super extendable canopy
  • weight-lightweight
  • front wheel rattle
  • does not sit well on the road- wheels vibrate in the air

Beautiful, lightweight, super extendable canopy, high enough (also suitable for tall people)... I was just totally into it until we went outside and the front wheels started to rattle like a little tractor... horrible... the next day we were returning it.

I am sorry there's no original changing bag attachment on the stroller. Also, I am sorry about the wheels that sit a bit too loose in their joints. Otherwise, it's a nicely designed, quality stroller.

We kept it for our second daughter as well

  • Large hood
  • Lies flat
  • Very large seat surface
  • Light
  • Compact
  • Air-filled tyres
  • The sitting position is not 100% upright (you can work it out with a rear supporting strap that you add)
  • The front wheels tend to "jump" when you go fast or over a bumpy surface

TOP class stroller, we loved everything about it. We kept it for our second daughter as well.

I returned it after a week

  • Pretty design
  • Lightweight
  • Compact
  • Lies flat
  • Inflatable wheels
  • XXX hood
  • Quite a large basket
  • Crazy turning of the front wheels, I was told there was some king of error with my batch
  • No suspension

I returned it after a week because the wheels were turning like crazy.

The BEST in every way
