- Easy to fold
- I don't have to take off the infant carrier to fold it
- Easy handling
- Pockets on the back of the backrest
- Washable canopy
- No suspensions
- Cannot rock
- Baby bar seems high placed
- Need to buy a rain cover and net extra
- Inflatable wheels - would appreciate a gel non-puncture option
A pushchair that I have grown to love due to its lightness and compactness. It doesn't take up much space in the car and can navigate even rough terrain.
I think it's a great choice. It goes through everything and I'm quite an adventurer, so nothing is an obstacle for us. My little one didn't want to sit in the stroller anymore, so I figured I'd get something lighter than the 3 in 1 system.
This stroller is easier to lug around than our original 15 kilogram one... and wonder of wonders, I put my little one in the Valco for the first time and she sat in it obediently for four hours straight, two of which she slept through. So for us, wow.
The only thing that may be a shortcoming for some is the parent handle, which is not height adjustable. It suits me absolutely fine, but I'm 170 cm. My grandmother, who is 150 cm, was already complaining a bit.
- The baby can be napping almost horizontally
- Adjustable leg position
- Very portable even in a small car trunk, in the train corridor
- Handles even rough terrain well... a dirt road, a forest path
- The handle is quite low and cannot be adjusted, fine for me - but it bothers my husband (185 cm)
- Not cushioned
- Can't handle really bad terrain (snow, big bumps and lumps)...
Nice compromise of compliance, weight, size for a child (we have a little giant) and terrain use. I don't think there's any point in getting a classic umbrella buggy - either something similar to this stroller, or something mini (like the GB Pockit).
The only minus I see with this stroller is that there are an awful lot of them - so you have to count on encountering one on every corner during your walk
- low weight
- easy and quick folding
- large shopping basket
- pleasant to handle and stroller (even with a heavier baby)
- spacious seat
- carrying capacity up to 20 kg
- extendable canopy
- inflatable wheels
- design - "ordinary"
- there are a lot of them
- could be a bit more cushioned
A very handy, smart and practical stroller. Design-wise it is nothing special, but it is comfortable for both baby and mom.
What I appreciated most was the light weight, the easy and quick folding system and the relatively large shopping basket. It's great to manoeuvre - even going down and up the curb is hassle-free, even with a heavier baby.
It is as spacious as possible for the baby in width and length, even the three year old did not feel overgrown in it. It reclines all the way up to lying down, and the leg positioning also makes it perfect for napping. The canopy is extendable - not quite to the baby's feet, but I think it's enough. I also had a chance to try the model with foam wheels and I definitely recommend paying for the "Sport" inflatable version - you can feel the wheels very much when you ride and you'd rather inflate occasionally rather than pulling out pebbles every now and then.
I was most worried about the handle not being able to be positioned, but the height suited me, so positioning wasn't missed. The only minus I see with this stroller is that there are an awful lot of them - so you have to count on encountering one on every corner during your walk. And I'm sure some neighbor will have one too :-D
- Inflatable wheels, a must for me
- Folding inwards
- Lightweight, compact and practical stroller
- Wheels can be locked
- Spaciousness of the stroller
- Good handling characteristics, can handle even moderate terrain
- Shoulder strap for carrying the folded stroller
- Parental handle is low
- Poorly accessible inflatable valve on front wheels
Lightweight, foldable, great positioning. With inflatable wheels a fantastic stroller.
- easy folding
- no reversing of the seat
- I am not so fond of the setback recline system
Lightweight, compact, inflatable wheels make it go over everything beautifully. In its price range it is a top of the line stroller. I took a bit of getting used to the seatback reclining - I prefer the classic lever recline, but it was doable. Too bad it doesn't reverse as well. But folding is a big plus - easy, convenient.
- Good handling
- Comfortable for baby
- Long hood
- Handles terrain - potholes, curbs, grass ruts without problems
- Wheels do not rattle
- Can be put to a lie-flat position
- Has ventilation
- Window and storage space
- Large basket
- Apron included (tailor made)
- Bad access to the basket when fully reclined
- The ventilation rear fabric could also be fixed on the sides
- It's not a designer stroller
Too bad I didn't buy it when I had my first baby. Very practical and well thought out stroller, probably even better than some overpriced ones, but nothing interesting by design. Every second mom has it, but I don't see it as a minus. Rather, it just proves that it is really good for the price.
- Spacious for the kid
- Great one-hand manipulation
- Wholly washable
Great pushchair. I definitely recommend it, I am very satisfied.
- Backrest and leg positioning
- Large basket that is easily accessible
- Off-road driving characteristics
- No suspension
For the money, I think it's a fine pushchair. It's very light, which is great as it's easy to handle. The baby's seat is nice and wide and I like that it has back and leg positioning. What's a little weaker is the ability to go over some terrain, although it's not the worst.
- Low weight
- Long seatback
- Numerous accessories
- Folds inwards - does not get dirty in transit
- Two handles (hand, shoulder) to carry up stairs with baby in arms
- Spacious enough basket
- The original footmuff is pretty crappy, I recommend to have it sewn at a tailor's
- The canopy is not four-piece, which was missing in the summer, we will probably have it sewn as well
- Parent handle is foam only
For us a great stroller - it does what we want it to do. I wouldn't change it. We have the Tailormade (Grey Marle) version with inflatable wheels.
- Inflatable wheels
- Quiet ride
- Large canopy with extension
- No reversing the handle to have the child face you
I was very happy with it overall 👍🏻
- Inward fold - so the seat is hidden after folding and doesn't get dirty
- Comfy flip-flop brake
- Lies completely flat
- Big canopy
- No suspension
- Not the most stable
- The canopy color faded quite quickly
We loved pretty much everything - that is why we chose it. ;-) Ideal for the city, but it works on light terrain as well.
- Low weight
- Pretty design
A superb stroller. It's light, quiet, compact for the car, spacious inside, super back positioning to any position, inflatable wheels. Denim color suitable for son as well as daughter.
- Large hood
- Multiple colorways to choose from
- Carrycot option
- No suspension
- The basket gets scratched easily
This was my first pushchair. I was looking for something lightweight and compact, that's why I choose Valco. The weight - with inflatable wheels - was more than 9 kg, though, even though everywhere claims 7+ kg. The basket scratches with every getting up a curb - even when the wheels are bigger in size.
- Weight maximum
- Big canopy
- Inflatable wheels
- Basket accessibility is not the best
I bought it after a recommendation. All in all, I am thrilled about it. But if I look at the tiny details, I would expect a better backrest recline system for that money. Something sturdier than such a strap - I had a similar strap on a very cheap buggy once. On a pushchair for half this price, I had a lever recline, which I found better. Other than that, this pushchair is very recommendable, and the Tailormade version is beautiful.
We had a bent design from the factory. So nothing much.
No suspension was not a problem since we had inflatable tires - they made the driving a pleasant experience
This stroller meets almost all of my requirements. Thanks to the inflatable wheels, it passed through any terrain we needed it to - all the while being lightweight and compact. I did mind the rear part of the seat, however, because it only closed with a few velcros, meaning not very protective in winter or when it's windy. It is, of course, possible to DIY a solution for this.
The stroller is very spacious and comfortable for the little one. No suspension was not a problem since we had inflatable tires - they made the driving a pleasant experience. A big disadvantage is the foam on the handlebar and bumper bar, but it can be solved with some sold-separately (or handmade) covers. Overall we were satisfied and can recommend it :-)
