The Phil & Teds Vibe is a great looking buggy, but a few glitches that could make it even better to use...

Summary: I really like the look of the Phil & Teds Vibe, and it is incredibly lightweight and easy to manoeuvre. I use it with a buggy board which works well. There are a number of things that could be improved to make it much easier to use. The seat is fairly small, and the straps are too small for my 2 year old, we bought the extensions for £7. The handles are also too short, I have to stoop a bit and I am not tall. A tall parent would injure themselves pushing it!
Pros: Good looking Easy to clean Very lightweight yet robust
Cons: Small seat Short straps - we bought the extensions Short handles The front wheels don't lock
Summary: This stroller is great for the mall. it is nice to clip in a car seat, but just used for that save the money and buy another car seat chassis for 50$. The toddler seat is basic but my baby enjoys it. I wish it reclined further and had a foot rest for a kid under the age of 18 m. That is when they can reach this one.
Pros: Easily Stowed, Easy to Set Up, Easy To Steer, Lightweight, Sturdy
Summary: I loved this pushchair when I unpackaged it. The seat is a lovely colour (ruby) It is very easy to put together. The basket is a great size and I LOVE the fact that it can be used lie flat without having to buy an additional bassinette for a newborn ... this feature is very clever. I am not happy that I had to buy a raincover from a different website as Very do not sell the raincover that fits this pushchair. The handle is very high ...
Summary: the adaptors are worth getting as it makes the seat lay down more - although not as much as i thought but its more than when the seat is in the front facing position. but there great because your baby is facing you especially when there still a baby. you do have to remove the seat though before you can fold the buggy down - although it is really easy to remove.
Summary: Bought this for holiday due to the fact that the cover has UV protection and an insect net we feel it will be very useful for our holiday in Majorca. Havent used it yet as i write this review but im hoping it will do the job. Excellent value for money and the fact that i wont have a daft parasol on the buggy is a great idea. cant wait to use it.
Excerpt: Bien plus foncé que sur la photo, protège bien du soleil et un peu du vent, s'installe par scratch pratiqueet couvre bien la poussette, bonne forme, se replie et vient dans une pochette. bébé voit à travers mais nous on a du mal à le voir !
Excerpt: s'adapte parfaitement à la poussette en mode "avant", un peu moins bien quand on utilise le kit verso pour avoir bébé face à soi. Vient avec sa pochette de rangement, aérer si possible avant, comme tout plastique ça pue!
Pros: couvre de la pluie ! bien adapté à sa poussette
Cons: sent le plastique les premières utilisations
