Valco Baby Snap 4

The Valco Baby Snap 4 is an ultra-lightweight four-wheel stroller with a high weight capacity. The name Snap comes from the quick, inward fold. Although the models intended for the western market can be released by pushing the button, hence folded by one hand, the eastern have to be released by lifting and holding the locking latch. The foam wheels are suitable for the city; however, the air-filled tires suitable for rougher terrain are also available to purchase either separately or as a part of the version Snap 4 Sport.

The fabric on the non-reversible seat is easy to look after. You can purchase the colorful hoods to add to the basic black seat to make the desired color combination. The grey version, as well as the premium version called Tailormade, features color-coordinated seat fabric and the hood. The backrest can be reclined sufficiently even for smaller babies. Since 2015, the Snap 3 features an adjustable leg rest. 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 Snap 4 was also released in limited editions with patterned canopies, varying through different years.

Super light and compact

4
  • Light
  • Fits in a really small car when folded
  • No handle adjustment

Super light and compact stroller. Quiet, easy to handle, extended hood and adjustable legs. Great satisfaction.

  • Lightweight
  • Easy to operate and fold
  • Leg rest positioning
  • Canopy extension
  • Handle cannot be adjusted in height
  • It took me longer to get used to the cord for positioning the backrest

I bought the stroller because of a vacation and frequent transport in the car. I really got used to it as it is really light and quick to fold and unfold. I bought the inflatable wheels and I am very happy with it.

Perfect even for smaller kids

I've had the stroller for a while and I'm very satisfied. Easy folding and cleaning - I have the Tailormade version. The little one has enough space to sit there. The storage space is also excellent. Easy handling.

Simply amazing

All described in the advantages and disadvantages.

I was happy with it

  • Light
  • Good folding system
  • Easy to push stroller 👍🏻
  • The recline is not as easy, with the strap

A great pram, I was happy with it.

I even fit two babies in it 🙂

  • Low weight
  • Easy handling
  • Easy folding
  • Takes up little space in the car
  • Comfortable stroller for baby
  • In two years of use I have not noticed any downsides

This stroller is very good. When my first born was 8 months old, and I was expecting another princess, it was quite difficult to walk on public transport with the pushchair versiont of our 3in1 system because it was quite heavy. So I decided to buy a pure pushchair/buggy. I asked in the store for the lightest stroller - and they showed me this one. I don't regret the purchase.

Super lightweight, it's only 7 kg. Very easy to handle. Both the footrest and the headrest (back) can be adjusted in height. The canopy opens beautifully so that the baby is not disturbed when sleeping. Also protects from rain. I recommend it to everyone. I even fit two babies in it 🙂.

  • Can be put into full lie-flat
  • Lightweight and foldable, great for train travel
  • With the heavier weight of the handbag, it tilts backwards
  • Terrain is not its friend
  • The wheels wobble

I spent many days choosing a sports stroller and reading reviews. This stroller had great reviews, so I bought it, but I was not happy with it and would definitely not recommend it.

Our older model had no leg rest adjustment which we missed, and the rear mesh part could better cover the head. Otherwise a perfect pushchair.
