Excerpt: Mix and match colours* make for a fun and stylish lightweight stroller that offers a winning combination of comfort, sturdiness and convenience. Tested with 21-month-old Zac. *The Smart now has a whole new array of gorgeous pop colour hoods, seats, and seat liners (seat liners sold separately) What’s in the box?
Pros: Five-point safety harness, four travel modes for newborn to toddler, choice of seat and hood colours, forward and rear-facing, compact fold and lightweight, super slim, soft and comfy aerocore seat.
Cons: Material not to everyone's liking, bit fiddly to assemble
Conclusion: The Phil and Teds Smart is super trendy with lots of features you'd expect to see on a from-birth buggy. However, the un-adjustable handles mean it won’t work comfortably for all parent heights. The solid aerocore seat is innovative and helps make this buggy as lightweight as it is, but it won’t be to everyone’s liking.
Pros: Compact, folds very flat, looks stylish, weighs just 7kg, narrow chassis, travel system compatible with Maxi-Cosi CabrioFix, There's no getting away from the fact that the Phil and Teds Smart is a fabulously designed product and a must for all yummy mummies who love to scout around town with their baby.

Cons: Handles don't adjust, seat is a bit narrow, need to use rear bar to get up kerbs, if you're tall your feet keep kicking the brake, seat may not be padded enough for everyone's liking, The thing that annoyed me the most about the Phil and Teds Smart buggy was the height of the handles. Being taller than average, both my husband and I found the handles were too low and couldn't be adjusted, so we kept kicking the rear axle and occasionally the brake. While I found the s...
Summary: The Phil and Teds Smart is a lightweight, innovative and adaptable stroller. It should be noted that whilst the wheels are larger than a regular stroller and it has suspension, the Smart should not be expected to manage the kind of rougher terrain that a full sized pram can handle. The Smart is a fabulous stroller for shopping malls and centres and is comfortable from birth to the end of toddlerhood.
Pros: Very lightweight stroller at only 8kg, Forward and rearward facing options, Fold mechanism is simple, Adaptable with car seat adaptors and bassinette options
Cons: Fold is large for a stroller, Basket is a little shallow, Follow-the sun canopy cannot be secured to stop toddlers from playing with it
