Maclaren Techno XT Review

Maclaren Techno XT Review Summary A sporty lightweight full-featured stroller that’s ideal for going around town and taking on holiday. The design brief was “supreme comfort, compact style and easy manoeuvring”. We think they’ve done a very good job at ticking each of those boxes. Product features and accessories Seat The Maclaren Techno XT is a single seat pushchair, designed to take a child from newborn to approximately 15kg. The seat unit is spacious and roomy, so a child is not likely to outgrow this in a hurry. A 5-point safety harness... Read More

The Surge of High-Tech Jogging Strollers

I love this time of year.  Summer is finally here.  And boy it’s a sporty one.  Andy Murray has started the defence of his Wimbledon Crown, England bows out tonight of the World Cup, the cricketers are playing the 2nd Test against Sri Lanka at Headingley and we’ve still got the Commonwealth Games to come.   A feast of sporting activity.  No wonder everyone is obsessed with fitness as we watch these events from the comfort of our sofa. This fitness bug seems rife in new parents too.  More and... Read More

Britax Affinity Review

Britax Affinity Review We had heard about the Britax Affinity receiving many awards and wanted to see what all the fuss was about. It’s impressive, thoughtfully designed and stylish.

Britax B-Agile 3 vs Baby Jogger City Mini & City Mini GT Comparison Review

Britax B-Agile 3 vs Baby Jogger City Mini & City Mini GT Comparison Review Summary Both the Baby Jogger City Mini and City Mini GT have some good points which make them attractive prospects for parents. However, Britax have thrown their name into the hat with their own lightweight, city friendly, urban pushchair. The Britax B-Agile 3 may be cheaper than the other 2,  but it packs a punch; and may just take the win in this three way choice. Seat Both the Baby Jogger City Mini and the Baby... Read More

BOB Revolution CE Review

BOB Revolution CE Review Having recently reviewed the BOB Revolution SE, we knew the BOB Revolution CE would be of a similar ilk. First class design and built for a specific purpose. Look You can see that the BOB Revolution CE has bicycle roots like the SE.  It is in a similar style to a children’s trailer / chariot that you would tow behind your bike.  It looks functional and the material is light, breathable and water repellent.  It’s a nice looking buggy – a step away from the standard...

It is in a similar style to a children’s trailer /chariot that you would tow behind your bike.... Read More

Mountain Buggy Nano Review

Mountain Buggy Nano Review Mountain Buggy Nano is the answer for every parent who wishes to travel with kids. It’s a super lightweight, compact travel stroller and fits into tiny spaces. If you’ve been brave enough in the past to travel with small children, then you have probably at one point or another shared the pain for flying with them. It’s never easy travelling with kids and a cumbersome buggy. Where do you store it on the train? Thank goodness for the Mountain Buggy Nano.

Some people have described it as a ‘game changer’, and we definitely agree.   When we heard of the launch of the... Read More

Britax Baby-Safe Plus SHR II Review

Britax Baby-Safe Plus SHR II Review Before opening the box we had high hopes for the Britax Baby-Safe Plus SHR II. Britax stands for safety, quality and innovation. Coupled with the fact that this Britax Baby-Safe Plus SHR II was the chosen seat to transport Prince George from hospital back to his home. It just has to be a winner doesn’t it? The Britax Baby-Safe Plus SHR II is a rear-facing Group 0+ car seat. That means it’s suitable from birth to approximately 13kg. Seat The seat has deep sides and is... Read More
