Just wondering if anyone taken their Babybee Rover3 ‘off road’? How does it handle on a limestone or dirt/gravel track, or over turf/lawn for example?

Babybee
Babybee   DM   

Hi Bec, Thanks for getting in touch

Our prams have been designed for "urban living" so footpaths, shops and local parks are ideal surfaces. When it comes to off-road and uneven terrain they can definitely handle it, they just won't feel as comfy for you or bub as a 3 wheeled jogging stroller would with much larger wheels.

It's really the front swivel wheels that become the issue rather than the rear when you take a pram off road. If you do decide to take your ROVER3 off road you can lock the front swivel wheels.

Our Aeroglide wheels are made from a high-grade PU rubber that offers some of the cushioning that air tires do but without the maintenance and punctures. They're also resistant to fine gravel and small stones so they'll stay looking newer for longer and won't wear out anywhere near as fast as traditional EVA wheels.

I hope that's answered your question if you need anything else please don't hesitate to ask, we're here to help!

Cheers,

Hi, wondering how plane/travel friendly the Rover 3 is? Does it meet regulations for carry on?

Babybee
Babybee   DM   

Hi Carly! Thanks for your question. The Rover3 does not meet the requirements for carry on and would need to be checked in. We do sell a travel stroller called the Miles if you wanted to take a look, we also stock a carry bag for the Miles as well.

Kind regards,
Jess

Can I use the Central adaptors on the frame for both the seat and bassinet? I.e. I don't need to swap out the adapters when switching between the two?
Thanks!

Babybee
Babybee   DM   

Hi Julie! The seat and bassinet will both attach to the frame without the need for adapters, so you can interchange the parts with ease!

Kind regards,
Jess

Is it safe to go jogging when pushing the Rover3?

Babybee
Babybee   DM   

Hi Brittany, Thanks for getting in touch :)

When it comes to jogging, 3 wheeled jogging strollers are definitely going to perform best. The key differences with these and 4 wheel strollers like our ROVER are the single front wheel that enables you to turn easier, a much wider frame to offer greater stability, much larger wheels to make it easier for you to push and comfier for bub and they've often got great suspension, a fixed seat (not a 2 in 1 reversible seat that will shake) and a stronger/heavier frame designed to take the additional impact. And the same will be true for any other 2-in-1 prams.

Has anyone used stroller for new born?
Is it okay if we skip the bassinet?

Tammy

We started using the stroller instead of bassinet at 3 months (I guess 2 corrected). We had a stroller insert with supported head rest. Mainly for her reflux as she didn’t enjoy lying down flat anyway

Babybee
Babybee   DM   

Hi Carly, Thanks for getting in touch

In line with expert advice, we recommend bassinets for babies under 6 months old. The flat surface is the safest place for your precious cargo and also the best position for spine development.

They should remain in the bassinet until they can sit up and support their head and neck unaided (around 5-6 months). If their neck muscles aren't strong enough, the risk in the seat is that their head may fall forwards or sideways when they get tired and block their airways. We understand that all babies grow at a different rate so are understand that some babies are moved into seats sooner than this by the choice of the parent.

Just got brand new rover3 delivered. One thing I noticed off the bat is handle bar quality - that thing rattles like some sortev cheap plastic. Is that normal or faulty? Also clicking noise when pram is in forward motion - appears to be coming from one of the tyres, it's audible and can be annoying. Anyone having similar issues or it's just me?

Hi there, If you haven't already please send through some videos showing the issues your experiencing to au.support@babybeeonline.com so we can have a look into this for you.

Vid was sent to babybee support and was told handlebar rattling is normal ??(as you can see here other customers got lucky and don't have this issue)...
Regarding the clicking noise, support sent 'new' wheels which are missing cover/logo. (probably used wheels). This is absolutely unacceptable. Why can't they just send me brand new pram and pickup the faulty one?

Hi there, Without having you're email address I'm unable to check this out personally for you. If possible could you please reply to your the last email we sent saying that Shannon has asked for you to get in touch so that the message is forwarded on to me?

Hi, we currently have a baby bee rover and are looking to get a baby bee duo. Will the baby bee bassist or toddler seat from the baby bee rover work in the baby bee duo? Are the baby bee product interchangeable?

Hi Madalin, I apologise for the late reply!

Each of our models are their own unique design with virtually no compatibility between parts and accessories.

Aside from the Babybee branded toddler boards, what other brands of toddler boards are compatible with the Babybee Rover?

Babybee
Babybee   DM   

Hi there, We haven't done any specific testing on other universal toddler board models. There are others out there that should fit but we can't guarantee they will work.

It would be worth contacting the companies who make the toddler boards to confirm this. Also keep in mind that some may cause damage to your frame where they attach which is not covered by our warranty policy.

If we can help with anything else please get in touch.

Hi, what's the difference between the Rover 3 and Rover 2019?

Babybee
Babybee   DM   

Hi Ashley, Thanks for getting in touch :)

The main differences between the ROVER2019 and ROVER3 are the built in UV cover in the bassinet and the easier access to the basket from the rear of the pram.

Here is a link that will give you a full comparison between the ROVER2019 and the ROVER3 models. external link

Josh · Rover3 (2021)

Hi, we are tossing up between the Rover 3 and the Duo 2 for our first stroller. Have seen the comparison video and we are leaning towards the Rover 3 because it's more compact and lighter. However, we do like the the wheel sizes on the Duo 2. Would the Duo 2 wheels be compatible on the Rover 3?

Babybee
Babybee   DM   

Hi Josh, Thanks for getting in touch.

The wheels from the DUO2 are not compatible with the ROVER3.

Keep in mind even though the DUO2 wheels are larger they are both designed for the same sort of use. They are larger on the DUO2 as the pram needs to be able to carry double the weight.

We're sure you'll love the ROVER3 once you get it and feel the push but if for any reason you don't we do have our free 9 month return policy.

Please get in touch if we can help with anything else.

Cheers,
Shannon

Hi
I have seen some review saying some people bought it for 799$, some for 849$ and so on, but the website says the Rover 3 costs 999$.
Is there any special discount on these prams or thats the fixed price?
I am eagerly looking forward to buy this.
Thanks

Babybee

Hi There

I had a query. I read this review for babybee rover (the previous one) https://www.choice.com.au/babies-and-kids/baby-transport/strollers-and-tricycles/articles/3-prams-to-avoid-buying.

It says that your older model posed a risk for baby getting stuck. has this been resolved in rover 3?

Thanks

Himanshu

Babybee
Babybee   DM   

Hi Himanshu, We disagree with these Choice findings.

The ACCC have been consulted on this matter and agree with our risk analysis that when the stroller is used without the canopy attached, with your child not restrained in the harness, the seat fully reclined, on an extremely steep incline, there could be a potential hazard, however, the risk of injury is extremely low to zero. For there to be this extremely low risk you would have to be using the pram incorrectly in multiple ways.

We believe that any risk, even if only 0.005% chance is possible than action should be taken to avoid it. We have asked all current ROVER customers to ensure they use their pram with the canopy attached to prevent any risk and in the ROVER3 have added a head barrier just in case anyone did use their pram as outlined above.

Please rest assured that we have not had any injuries, incidents or concerns from customers relating to this matter.

If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to reach out. We’re here to help!

Cheers,
Shannon
