Not worth the $$$
marlennix, the baby Scoop
20 July 2007
Excerpt: I purchased this stroller a few months ago and was dissappointed in the quality of the parts. I had plastic pieces breaking from wear and tear (maybe from the ride or maybe from my toddler, I don't know). I wouldn't invest in another one, thats for sure. I bought a BOB Revolution instead.
Summary: Poor. No good for cups or bottles - the holder is much too short meaning everything falls out. Some usefulness as a bin, but even that is limited, given the huge holes. Basically, designed by someone who has never seen, let alone used, a buggy... or a cup.
Summary: This is just about impossible to get to cover the pram from the footboard as pictured. My toddler has to sit with her feet scrunched up, while there is no means of securing the back to ensure protection for the baby in heavy rain/wind.
Excerpt: This buggy has been a real disaster. It is incredibly heavy to put in a car boot, my husband nearly lost a thumb as it snaps shut so suddenly. The tyres are constantly puncturing, once they puncture (usually when you are out and about) pushing two kids in a buggy with a flat tyre is a) bloody hard...
Excerpt: We bought this (or was it the Classic? never sure) with doubles kit for the arrival of our second baby having been in love with our Bugaboo Bee for the first. This is really poor design in so many ways.
Summary: Wasn't what I expected! I expected the mesh to attach from the hood to the foot well. However it attached from the back of the hood to the back of the back rest. I contacted the seller who promised to send an envelope to return the goods. I am still waiting for this return envelope a month on!
Summary: I purchased this rain cover to go with our Navigator Double buggy. The rain cover is supposed to cover my baby and toddler when it rains - this does not do the job! The cover is not long enough and so sits on my toddlers legs rather than cover up to the wheel as shown in the picture.
