  • Conclusion: It’s not a budget lightweight umbrella-fold buggy, but its quality and useful features do justify the price tag. The inclusion of the carrycot now makes the cost even more reasonable and provides a good parent-facing option.
  • Pros: Easy to fold, easy to attach and remove carrycot, carrycot has collapsible shell, travel system compatible, Folding the Mamas & Papas Cybex Callisto is easy and straightforward - just push up the back bar with your foot, hold down the button in the middle of the handlebar and fold. It’s easy to transport and store once folded, too, due to the clip that holds it closed and the side carrying handle. It’s easy to recline the buggy with the one-handed recline toggle on th...
  • Cons: No viewing window in hood, brake hard to use, The Mamas & Papas Cybex Callisto has a lightly padded seat, but for a smaller baby you might prefer to add a more padded seat liner. There’s no viewing window in the buggy hood, so you can’t keep an eye on your tot when the hood is up.

  • Conclusion: The Callisto isn’t a budget buggy, but it has lots of useful features and a quality feel to it that makes you feel it’s worth the price tag. By purchasing the carrycot and car seat, you can combine all the benefits and versatility of a 3-in-1 pram, with those of a lightweight, compact stroller.
  • Pros: Lightweight, easy to fold, light car seat, collapsible carrycot, I’m a big fan of the Callisto buggy’s single handlebar. I find one handlebar, rather than two handles, makes it much easier to hold the hand of another child while you cross the road. I also find it easier to push, as I’m always needing one hand for something else (but there’s the downside of not being able to hang your shopping from the handle!). I’m impressed with how easily the matching Callisto carry...
  • Cons: No viewing window in hood, brake hard to use, only rear facing when carrycot or car seat attached, The shopping basket of the Callisto is small, but this is fairly standard for this kind of lightweight buggy. The brake is a kick-down, kick-up mechanism, which is tricky to release when you’re wearing  open-toe shoes. The seat is lightly padded, but you might want to add a padded liner for smaller babies. In buggy mode, the Callisto is forward facing only and the hood d...
