Valco Baby Snap Ultra

see 3 parent reviews

The Valco Baby Snap Ultra is a lightweight urban stroller with a high weight capacity. It is based on the basic Snap 4, compared to which it has a higher positioned handle, a larger shopping basket and a reversible bucket seat with an extendable, double sized extra large hood. The Snap Ultra seat can be tilted to a lying position with an independently adjustable leg rest. A carrycot and/or a car seat must be purchased separately to use the stroller for babies from birth. All-terrain wheels with air-filled tires are either an optional accessory or a part of the version Snap Ultra Sport. 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.

parents say thx^^

Absolutely perfect. I have two children, and we needed something smaller to fit in our car. When I bought it, my younger son wasn't yet 6 months old, so I needed a reversible stroller. I can honestly say 100% satisfaction.

It has many advantages

4
  • Extended canopy
  • Lightweight
  • Easy to drive
  • Compact
  • Large shopping basket
  • Reversible
  • Price
  • Foam wheels
  • Not much suspension

We used it for over a year. I was delighted to have it. It has many advantages. It features an ergonomic seat (not every child likes this type, however, but ours did love it). The only downside are the foam wheels and the lack of suspensions.

  • lightweight
  • compact
  • easy to fold and unfold
  • you can carry a folded one on your shoulder
  • adjustable, reversible seat
  • nothing

We bought a used one in brown. Even after one child, it looked very well. We needed it mainly for travels - I was searching for something lightweight, compact, and easily foldable. Valco Snap Ultra met all of these expectations. It fits our car without problems and takes up only a little space when folded.

The seat unit is reversible and can be fully reclined, so you can use it for small children that don't even sit by themselves just yet. I was a bit afraid since the seat doesn't lay 180degrees (flat), but without reason - my son loved the small incline, and he also put his feet gladly on the bumper bar in this position. Even if they say the seat is on the smaller side, he fits comfortably, without issues. He is 1y7m old, but with a size 98/104 :-)

I recommend this model, and if we have a second child, I will only buy a carrycot to add to it.
