Babybee Rover 2017 has been discontinued and replaced by Babybee Rover 2019.
Love our Rover. Had a Comet prior and there’s noticeable improvements with the Rover (belly bar opens and closes, adjustable handle, better maneuverability, sturdier material, smoother ride). My only complaint is the canopy could be bigger.

Fantastic, stylish pram
I bought this pram new on afterpay (very affordable), I find it handles very well on most surfaces but definitely prefer the solid wheels to the ones you inflate with air. We also have a Steelcraft and my son much prefers the babybee, the ability to face towards and away is perfect for him. It has over time become "creaky", I suspect from rocking to sleep when out and about. This is the only fault I can find on the pram and will be selling to purchase the "duo" from babybee to accommodate my toddler & newborn.

Disappointed with maneuverability,
Wheels are terrible to glide over anything uneven, even a very slight change in surface, this was my biggest issue. It's very squeaky which can be a bit annoying like listening to an old clapped out car, have only used on road and pavements. Features I enjoyed were being able to set the stroller or bassinet forward or rear facing and positioning of stroller incline/decline. The material is quite hard wearing also. But other features that need attention are the basket being too small and coming away from the pram when opening/closing. The canopy needs to be longer to cover bub when trying to sleep.

Perfect and sleek
I’m super happy with the 2017 rover pram. It’s sleek and smooth and not bulky at all. I haven had my baby yet but I put my 4 month old nephew in it and he feel asleep faster then his pram he has. Can’t wait for my baby to use it

Can’t live without it! Best pram ever!
Great on all surfaces, the suspension is perfect and my Bub falls asleep straight away when in the pram so one would assume it’s VERY comfortable even in our warmer weather.

Nothing but issues
I have had nothing but continuous issues with my Babybee Rover. Straight from the box was a broken wheel and stained bassinet lining. My Babybee came without the safety strap on the handlebars which once reported they sent me and told me to try and tie it on. The seat liner continuously slides down and takes my daughter with it. The basket clips always comes off when folded and Babybee's recommended solution was blutack! Most recently the handlebar bag I purchased ripped and can no longer be used and they said they offer no cover or warranties on accessories so too bad so sad. I would 110% NEVER recommend Babybee Prams to anyone, nothing but disappointment for me.

Great price but heavy and small seat
I bought this pram as it looked great and was very good value for money.
After using the pram for a little while I found the steering heavy and the seat small. My little one was almost touching the canopy at 8 months. Compared to some of my new mum-friends prams I found this a little disappointing, even though a good price.

Poor Quality Product
You get what you pay for. There is a reason why the Rover is half the price of the other brands' products and that is because it is half the quality and lacks quailty and longevity that you get with more well established brands. I don't believe their cheap price is due to the cutting out of retailers, as there are several good quality products at the same price point as the Rover.
- looks good for the first few months
- cheap price, although this matches the quality
- can't try in a store before you buy and while they offer a 90 d...

Love my rover!
I bought my 2017 rover when I was pregnant with my second baby. We purchased the bassinet, & wheel board as well. My 3yo loves the wheel board, it is so convenient for when I’m out & about with both kids. The basket space in the pram is amazing & the option to have baby facing me, or outward is great. I have had 2 prams before we bought the rover, and will never look at another pram again. Definitely recommend!

Absolutely love this. We use it everyday
We used it as a bassinet when our baby was still sleeping in our room, kept her warm and cosy. We can take this pram anywhere. Suspension in this pram is ideal for walking and a slow jog. We took it camping a far bit and it was easy to push on the gravel and it didn’t seem to bother our baby with the bumps. It is crazy how easy it is to change from the bassinet to the seat. The seat is great is it has 6 different seating angles , three forward facing and three outward facing. My baby sits very comfortable in the pram and the liner that we rece...ived with the purchase is really soft. The pram is also very easy to compact and doesn’t take up much room in the boot of my car (RAV4) partner has a Ranger dual cab and we can fit it on the back seat with a car seat. Definitely value for money. It may seem like it’s good to be true but it’s definitely not. Worth getting and if you don’t like it they do offer returns.

The perfect addition for all new mums !!
I cannot rave enough about this pram . I purchased when my son was 3 months old as I was having a hip replacement and needed a pram I could manage on my own. This was a game changer . So many added features and 5 stars for comfort. The big wheels are great as I'm walking everyday now and can navigate tight spaces in stores and then go for a bush walk. My son's little happy feet go crazy as soon as he is strapped in. Thank you BabyBee !!

The Rover has been perfect for my new baby. We use the capsule adaptors with a Mico AP capsule and the skate board for my 4 year old. It is easy to operate and to control. The adjustable handle height is great as my husband is really tall. I often put the seat on for around the home and baby seems very happy and comfortable. Looks like a high end pram without the price tag.

This pram has all the features I was looking for. You can change the seat to face you or face away from you. It also attaches to my baby car seat which is the micro AP. It has adjustable handle height which I didn’t think I would need but I use everyday!

We searched and searched and searched for a pram that ticked all our boxes, and this one sure does. It was a lovely babyshower gift from my partner to celebrate our little one.
We have just upgraded from the bassinet to the seat, and boy oh boy it's even better. Lightweight and easy maneuverability, this pram has been to the shops, on hikes, and even to the snow. It hasn't let us down once, grips well and you're always in full control. The only thing we found difficult was the underpram storage basket being hard to access when we had the bass...inet fitted, however now with the seat there are no issues at all. The handle is comfy to use, as is the baby handlebar being nice and soft for little hands. The lining of both the seat and bassinet are extra cuddly for little people, as well as the canopy is perfect that it has an extendable option. Plenty of handlebar storage and overall a well made pram. Would 110% buy again. I receive lots of lovely compliments on how aesthetically pleasing this pram is.

Nice looking pram, decent quality but bulky and takes up a lot of space in my boot.
My husband has complained from the beginning about the space this takes up. Now, I have agreed to downsize to a compact pram.
I have a BMW X6 with decent boot space but it still takes up a lot of room in there.
It is also annoying to have two parts to assemble every time, but if you are researching prams that is a choice to consider. It is a beautiful pram and does run smoothly. The liner was a bit ugly, in my opinion but you can buy custom ones.

Really short seat height and hard to get put up and down.
This pram has an really short seat height, my 6 month old is already placing her head on the canopy fabric. There isn’t much space for her to grow, without her head being placed right up on the canopy fabric. Also it’s an absolute pain in the head to get up, the leavers on the side get jammed all the time; I find myself really questioning if it’s even worth getting the pram out of the car because of how much of a pain it is to put up and down. It’s really a shame because it’s such a beautiful pram and a good price.

Easy off road and built tough
I love my pram and it's so easy to fold up. It does scratch easy but that's just minor the only thing I can fault is the basket I wish it was deeper or bigger in some sort as when I have bassinet attached it is hard to out stuff in
Purchased in July 2018.
Good value for your money and baby
PROS: overall it is a very good pram without an expensive tag on it, reversible, comfortable, has a good basket space and is easy to use. CONS: it is a two-piece fold that demands a good space to fit in your car (specially when travelling), so do not buy it if you don't have one. Its rubber tyres will not help you have a smooth steering experience. It does not come with high-quality fabrics.

I am so in love with this pram! I get so many compliments from strangers, friends and family. It looks and feels very luxe but is a fraction of the price of other prams which is a huge bonus. I didn't know what to expect as this was an online purchase but I'm so glad I did! The bassinet attachment is a real life saver for sleep deprived mums, bubs goes to sleep in it within minutes. The lining is buttery soft and very comfy - no need for anything additional. The pram turns on a dime, handles well around my suburban streets and the suspension is...excellent. The deep canopy provides excellent shade, which is incredibly important for keeping bubs safe from the summer sun. All in all, I'm absolutely wrapped with this pram, it's an awesome find and has been a dream to own.

Great for city and suburban life!
This pram has been amazing for my little one. She used the bassinet for the first three months and has now “graduated” The the pram seat. Both were light weight attachments that made it easy to pack in the car and carry around. The wheels are also really sturdy and suitable for long walks- making it easier for me to get back into shape post birth. While it’s not recommended, my daughter also used the bassinet to take naps in when we are away from home- it’s that comfortable! Lastly, I love the way our car capsule fits into the pram. We are traveling to the US next month and I plan on bringing this pram because it’s so light weight and the car capsule fits in it so easily.
