Fold

The Mini is extremely easy to fold and stands once finished. To do this, there is a bar located underneath the leg rest. Push the grey button on the bar and twist, the pushchair will then fold down. This makes storage simple as it hardly takes up any space in your car boot or it can be tucked away at home ready for its next use.

This allows your older child to stay close to you and your pushchair whilst also giving the freedom to ride independently if appropriate.

 

Overall

The Mountain Buggy Mini Pushchair is such a versatile and useful pushchair. It was always going to be good as it is based on the award winning Swift and it has certainly lived up to expectations. The small size when in use and in storage make the Mini the perfect compact pushchair.
