Absolute Worst Pram I have EVER Used!!

published

Unstable and hard to steer.

published

I got this pram at the end of 2016. I have used it for just over a year and have been extremely disappointed as it pulls to one side, awful steering & stability issues. I am due to have a newborn in a couple months and want to be able to take my 2 year old and newborn for walks if only I felt safe using it. Very disappointed with pram.


Awesome pram!

published

This ticked all the boxes for us. It's not too big a pram (same width as the single mountain buggy!) but can comfortably fit two kids and has decent basket storage space under the pram. It was ideal for our needs and is a good quality pram that we have never regretted purchasing.

Best Double Pram for Two Small Kids

published

I bought this pram when my kids were about one and three. I love that it's inline without one kid almost being dragged in the mud under the other seat or side by side either unevenly balanced or just making it difficult to get through spaces. I do a lot of walking up very rough tilted hills and it is fantastic (being a mountain buggy it has great suspension.). It has a great unhood, high quality fabric and frame and a decent basket. My older child has only grown out of it at age five. Great to manoeuvre, really can't fault it for our needs.

I have sold my plus one & bought a phil & teds single with a double seat that clips on the back when needed . It is so much better . I recommend a dot or navigator & good second hand ones come up on Trade me alot cheaper than plus ones.

My 4 week old is too long for the newborn part of the pram

published

I was extremely happy with my MB +one until today. I bought the pram for the purpose of transporting my two year old and my newborn around. I tried my 4 week old newborn in it for the first time today and he is too long for the newborn bit!!!! I ended up lying him squashed in diagonally because by that point my toddler was too excited about our walk to not go. But I've no idea what to do next.... I've got months until my newborn will have enough head strength to sit in a seat.

Lightweight and easy to fold up/assemble

published

Very happy with this buggy. Lightweight,easy to assemble and pack up. Compact for travel and it fits easily in the car boot. Lots of storage and easy to clean . Highly recommend and the price was spot on . Have recommended to other Mums looking for a pram . Value for money and no jammed fingers. Happy Mum happy Bub .


Very poor design

published

We bought this with the intention to use for our 2 year old and newborn. It was fine until my daughter was 4 months old and could no longer fit the cocoon, and did not have the head control to be able to safely sit up yet. Her poor little legs were cramped up and it was so uncomfortable for her. Thankfully, the store gave us store credit and we went with the Mountain Buggy Duet, a side-by-side pram, which is actually the same width as a single. Fantastic. After we complained about the Plus One, the store actually took the pram off the floor and did not sell it any more.

Pretty good

published

I bought this for my 1 and 3 year olds to use on the school run so I can't comment on the newborn aspect. Its light to lift in and out of the car, easy to fold and to put up and the best thing is you don't have to attach a seat every time you get it out. Its also narrow and easy to manoeuvre in busy corridors. Also great to use when I just have the one kid for shopping etc. Great quality too. Disadvantage is the seats don't recline in case you have one child that wants to nap, but my kids tend to nap at home so this hasn't been a problem.

Great for two toddlers on short walks

published

Was great initially until my baby hit 3 months and now is too big for the cocoon, which is made of very thick fabric so not great for summer as the poor baby just sweated, even in NZ we have hot summers. Even now at 7 months she is still not ready foe the upright seat as it does not recline. On long walks when one has both children in the pram the seats don't recline so the babies can't sleep comfortably.

Great inline jogger pram

published

Has been great for transporting our 3 yo and 6 mth around. The baby carry bag is really handy - have even used this for transporting bub on the tram. In line design great and the quick release tyres are fabulous for when you are travelling. Have also loved the flexibility of the sunshade. Better storage on this than our old phil and teds.
Great storage , works well as a single or double pram

Questions & Answers

Kate

Kateasked

I have a very tall 2 1/2 year old and 6 month old and thinking of purchasing mountain buggy plus one. I have found double prams in the past hard to push, heavy and un usable. The reviews seem good and I want to attach a free rider for my toddler. Are there any negatives to this and is this best option?

Hi Kate,

The one thing I love about the MB +1 is its maneuverability. The swivel wheel at the front make it a breeze to negotiate in shopping centers etc. I also go jogging with the pram and I can negotiate our busy seafront promenade using one hand while running.
I am aware that MB have released a new MB +1...apparently the front footrest is adjustable so that would help if your younger child is tall.
My boy will be 3 yrs old in Jan and he sits in the back comfortably, he is 98 cm....
I don't know what the changes have been made ( if any) to the back section of the new MB. I would suggest trying to check one out if it was handy for you.
Good luck!

Hi Kate,

Apologies, there was a typo in my response. My boy is 94 cms.
Also, I don't have a free rider so I can't comment on this.
Cheers

I find it very cramped for my 3 year old and he's small. But my youngest is now one and could possibly go in the back now. I love the size of the pram and the way it manoeuvres, but now my son is 3 he prefers to walk most of the time. I wish I had my swift again.

Hi I'm trying to decide what pram to buy, I have the urban jungle and love it but bubs number two is due end of nov and my first will be 4 end of dec he won't be in the pram much but we are often out so Id like the option of being able to put him in. Any thoughts on the plus 1 for a 4yr old and new born? Keeping in mind it's going to be summer time aswell

Hiya, I think it will be ok while the baby is under 6 months, then you will find the baby is too big and gets too hot for the cocoon and although the rear seat can lie down, they constantly kick at the toddler seat in the front, but by this time your 4 yr old may no longer want to ride in the pram. Ever thought of just getting a front carrier and keeping your existing pram for the older one?
cheers

Hi,
Obviously when your new baby arrives the little one would go in the back and your boy in the front seat. My boy is 2 and a half and had his knees bent fully in the front seat as the footrest is not adjustable. He now sits in the backseat and is fairly snug....my point being that my son is half the age of your boy so I would be concerned about space. If there is anyway you can physically check out the pram with your child in all configurations I would highly recommend it.
Good luck! Babs

I don't think it will be good for a 4 year old. It's ok when big boy is in the front but when bubba has to migrate to the front which is way too early because they're too small and you have to carry them in a sling and push the pram for 3 months. I have a 2.5 yr old and it's squishy with no leg room and it's way too hot for bubba in the back.


Candice

Candiceasked

Are you meant to use the main seat positioning bar in two toddler mode or should i just put the two clips (that you'd use to clip the main seat onto the positioning bar) around the frame at the sides? I have noticed that without the positioning bar there is much more recline for the front passenger if I adjust the clips all way out and thread them around the frame but is this ok to do?

Totally agree with your options and works great like that four two toddler mode. The bar was best at the end of the baby mode when they were getting long.
