Venice Child Kangaroo

DISCONTINUED

The Venice Child Kangaroo (also known - under a different brand - as the Mee go Kangaroo) is the only stroller Venice Child introduced so far. Usually available as a stroller system, the higher price tag makes up for many functions, a refined design, high-quality melange upholstery, and chrome and leatherette details. Thanks to the possibility of changing the axle/the wheels into a 2-wheel-ride configuration, the sturdy chassis can handle almost any terrain, including snow or sand. Besides, the chassis doesn't have any visible screws or welds that would disrupt the attractive modern design. Despite the chassis being quite lightweight, the Kangaroo offers a rather bulky fold.

The fabrics of the bucket-type seat and the carrycot are added onto the same frame, which you can then simply click onto the chassis in any direction. The hood is shared between the carrycot and the seat unit mode - you will put the same hood on whichever configuration you are currently using. The extra-spacious carrycot can handle the baby for longer than the 'obligatory' six months. The roomy seat unit can be reclined (by tilting it) into a laying position in both directions. The stroller comes with a rain cover, a mosquito net, a pair of universal car seat adapters, a cup holder, and a footmuff included.

Your questions about the Venice Child Kangaroo

1)

Hi,

I have a Venice Kangaroo pram with the bassinet, capsule, and toddler chair. Unfortunately my pram has broken and is not fixable. I am wanting to know if the chairs are able to connect to other prams?? Or what I could do with the chairs??

Hello, there!

I wouldn't really recommend putting there a seat from a different pram, to be honest. It won't fit - and even if you did push it there by force, it might make the center of gravity wrong and break the stroller chassis or make the steering a nightmare. The only other "brand" that makes the same model with the same attachment system is the Mee-go but that is actually a sub-brand of the Venice Child brand and the prams are the same, really.

I will suggest contacting the manufacturer, Venice Child's customer support, and ask if they could sell you the spare part you need - the seat unit - since yours is broken. The manufacturers are usually willing to help their customers if the band is good and known and wants the people to go back to them. It's part of their PR.

Other than that, I would also recommend going through classifieds, maybe someone around you sells a used Kangaroo and you'll buy it for parts, using what you need.

Good luck!

Can anyone confirm what buggy boards are compatible with this pram? I am looking to use this for my second child but will require a buggy board for my toddler.

Hey, Sammy Jo,

There is no original buggy board to the Kangaroo pram, BUT there are good and universally fitting ones that I can recommend to you. Most certainly the Bumprider stroller board is a good choice, and so is the Lascal brand with the Lascal Buggy Board Mini (only for standing, smaller) or the Lascal Buggy Board Maxi (larger, with the possibility of fitting a small seat on). These two I like the best because they truly fit pretty much any pushchair or buggy thanks to the very versatile attachment system. They will fit your stroller as well.

I also suggest reading this stroller buggy boards how-to and what-don'ts guiding article to know more about sibling boards and their effects on stroller frame and push.
