Great pram, terrible warranty service!
Over than being a bit bulky, the pram is lovely, very maneuverable and glides well. We use it for running and also an every day pram. One of the tyres has been bulging for quite a while and I decided to make a warrantly claim. After several attempts, the manufacturer refuses to replace the faulty tyre as it is exposed to the elements. Unusual for an all terrain pram with a supposed 3 year warranty.
Was good in 2016, gone out the window since.
Bought this pram as a three wheel option, using for second child and everything has fallen apart. So many issues, where to begin! Shade doesn’t cover face of child. We got a new bassinet/parent facing attachement For #2 baby this year; but the company clearly didn’t road test it properly. The parent facing cuts into the crock because they have skimped on putting a crouch pad on. The pram itself is HEAVY, too much to lift in and out of the car; 15++ kg. If you have another child, they don’t do a stand up board to clip on, but only their own sco...oter board attachment. The brake has just given way and only locks on one side now, it’s become unsafe and we have now forced to purchase something else. We contacted mountain buggy several times, supply with accessories that did not help the crouch pad situation and has to wait weeks for assistance. A shame, and it was once a great brand. :(
Purchased in January 2016 for A$800.00.
Great except for the lack of shade the hood provides
I bought this pram as recommended by my sister with a now 6 year old who loved hers.
I like how easy it is to fold, fit in a small car and steering. The wheels don’t puncture like older/other models which is great but it is quite a bulky pram.
I am really disappointed in the small shade hood! I didn’t shop around much before but now friends with redsbaby and bugaboos all have air vents in the bassinet and big seat hoods, and can pull the hood down to shelter their babies from the sun. I am constantly having to have a wrap on top of the pram ...to provide shade and so my baby isn’t blinded by the sun! The sides alone should be covered close to the baby’s head and also have options to keep pulling the hood lower. I would not buy again unless there were other hoods you can replace it with. Also, don't love the mechanism to lower and raise the seat as it’s quite hard to do it quick and get it even! My baby is constantly falling one way or the other when upright as the seat is lopsided!
Very practical pram
Love this pram, 3rd baby and I was ready for a practical pram more so than those "showy prams" like I had previosuly had. This pram still looks stylish but has so many added benefits like the good size storage with zip pockets (storage basket fits 10kg = couple bags of shopping) Terrain air wheels make it easy on uneven paths, big seat so the baby can grow into it (birth to 3 or 4 year old fits comfortably). 1 hand fold and you don't need to take the pram apart to fold it. Also comes with attached bottle holder near the parent handle which is handy. Wish I had purchased this sooner! ... only downfall is that I don't like the feel of the parent handle it's abit plastic-y but overall it's a good quality pram that can adapt to growing baby.
Purchased in February 2020 at Mountain buggy for A$799.00.
Great pram for rougher terrain
I purchased this pram after the original pram I got for my son turned out to be woeful. My main requirement was something that could handle slightly rougher terrain (gravel, sand, cracked pavement) without giving my son a headache from the constant jolting! So far I have only used it with capsule adaptors (for MaxiCosi capsule - an extra $79 but well worth it) as he is only 10 weeks old, but the ride is super smooth, pram is easy to maneuver with one hand, folds up and down easily, has a decent sized basket and even came with a drink holder and...nappy bag. Only criticism would be that it would be quite easy to tip with the capsule attached as it sits very high. Once bub is in the seat I don't anticipate this being an issue. Highly reccomend. Was actually cheaper than the terrible pram I stupidly purchased originally! Great value for money.
Great for running, quite bulky though
I love this pram for running, it's very smooth. However I would love if it could take 2 kids. That bassinet never seemed to attach properly. Capsule was great. Full sized seat had some excellent features like laying down flat. Just quite a big pram. I'd get something more compact
Ok not great
Steers beautifully and suspension is great. Handles different surfaces with ease. Basket storage is reasonable but not the biggest and an awkward shape. Bassinet is average. Parent facing seat is very poor, if this is important to you I would recommend choosing a different pram. The stroller seat is also average. It’s lopsided and the straps are useless at best. The sunshade is also poor-doesn’t stay up properly and even when it is up coverage is minimal. Easy to fold but heavy and bulky
Purchased in September 2018.
Survived 3 kids and a lot of walking since 2012
Bought the mountain buggy in 2012 for the first child. The only additional attachment we took was the rain cover. and carried the all three children in it from the time they were born.
Over that time it's been the only pram and has been used in a variety of terrains including the typical walking tracks with gravel but a fairly smooth track through to some quite rough tracks with lots of rocks and steps that the pram needed to be pushed over. Its also been through some snow.
All in all the pram has survived. The whole time the adjustabl...e part of the handle bars felt kind of flimsy but did not break even with a substantial amount of force applied (Rocky surfaces). The tyres and tubes had to be replaced about 3 times. They just wore out the tyres are not quite as long lasting as say bike tyres, replacement was easy enough though. One of the wheels bearings wore out after 5 years probably due to mud getting in, but for $20 including delivery we could order replacement bearings for all 3 wheels from mountain buggy. The main complaint is that some of the buttons that hold the seat to the frame kept popping open as the kids got bigger. I could just order the replacement section but I suspect it will last long enough that i'll no longer need a pram
I love our Mountains Buggy Urban Jungle! We decid d to go with a pram that had 3 wheels, and we had also heard that this model of pram is great for running with also! It’s sturdy and is competent in going off road also. My only critique is that the bassinet (purchased separately) for this pram is bulky and somewhat poor quality compared to others that I have seen. The bassinet is difficult to disassemble as you have to remove the bassinet prior to folding up the pram, and takes up a lot of room in the car as a result of this.
We love our Mountain buggy!
I purchased this pram when my first child was a toddler. We are now using it with our second child and cannot fault it.
I really wanted a pram that was able to go off-road with ease. We had 2 prams prior and both were not able to be used on gravel, and over grass were quite awkward to manoeuvre.
If you are looking for a pram that is smooth, easy to manoeuvre on all terrain, big and comfortable for your child, has a large basket then this is the right one for you!
I ended up getting the bassinet free through the Mountain Buggy website (pu...rchased an existing model) and it came in handy when our second baby came along. We have only had to replace one of the inner tyres once, due to a catheat. Otherwise the pram is so sturdy and has lasted well. We use it for regular walks, holidays and shopping. Highly recommend!
Love this pram!
I loved the 3 wheels after pushing my friends pram 4 wheeler around (steel craft). It is easy to steer and very manoeuvrable. The air filled tyres make it very comfortable for baby and it also has shock absorbers to reduce the bounce on rough surfaces. So far this pram is used twice daily for nearly 7 months, it’s spent many hours at the beach, camping, rain forest walks in the back of my husbands ute and it is still in perfect condition.
The only negative I have is it was a little bit unbalanced while we were using it with the capsule (maxi cosi) so you had to make sure you balanced it really carefully off the gutter or through a pot hole etc.
Great Pram that will go anywhere, smooth ride for baby
Extremely easy to manoeuvre and with great suspension, guaranteeing a smooth ride for Bub. We have had this since August 2017 and purchased brand new in the black colour. We also purchased the Maxi Cosi capsule adaptors to go with it. Has been a very handy pram given the capsule clips straight in with bub facing you. We aren't looking forward to putting the pram seat back in and having bub face the other way where we cannot see him, but I'm sure he will enjoy looking out and seeing everything going on around him. It came with an insulated ...drink holder that straps to the frame. The fold up is easy, even with only one hand, its all in one piece, not a jigsaw to put together. Its great that it locks together once folded so that its not trying to open back up at you when you are putting back in the car. It is also very easy to open. There are two main things I love about this pram, the fact that the wheels are good wheels, not plastic and noisy, and the fact that the brake is in the handle. It takes a lot to get used to, but so handy and stops your feet from hitting the rear brake in other prams.
I got the mountain buggy urban jungle just before my baby was born, it has been the best purchase so far! It is easy to maneuver once you get the hang of it, it is so simple to fold although unfolding can be a touch tricky, only because I find the release mechanism on the "wrong" side!
It is a very large pram but that was perfect for me as I didn't want to have to purchase another as my baby grew. I highly recommend the mountain buggy range!
I loved the look of this pram (nautical luxury) and was so so excited. The hood is very rarely extended and 18 months in looks 10 years old from the obsurd amount of fading. Adding to the the entire Brake system has gone so have had to pay for a new one as my pram is currently stuck in lock mode and is unusable.
Extremely disappointing and definitely not the standard which it is advertised as being.
Our best baby product purchase!
Purchased new including CarryCot which doubled as a bassinet for 5 months. Worth every cent. Excellent quality, great suspension and find easy to maneuver in all terrain. The storage basket is deep and easily accessible making shopping convenient with a baby. The hand brake is practical and folding the pram is simple. The only downside for me has been the weight (approx 11.5kgs) however this is a small sacrifice for the quality.
So i had purchased a second hand mountain buggy which was previously loved and it was still faultless and was so happy with it i decided to upgrade to a newer model for no other reason than just as a treat its easy to fold away and if needed i can even quickly unclip the wheels to make it even more compact. The suspension and the large wheels makes it glide on ruff terrain when we go off road .
Fantastic pram worth every cent. Manoeuvres easily and very well, has been a dream in shopping centres, footpaths and off road. Holds up to a high weight, meaning we have been able to let our 4 year old sleep in it on the off occation. Incredibly easy to fold and unfold, a bit large but we knew the size when we brought it.
Great, straightforward pram that maneuvers really well.
This is a great, very well built straightforward pram. I've found it particularly useful to use in my area with lots of cobbled laneways and parks, mainly due to the air tyres and suspension - it just glides along super easily. Also, due to only having three wheels it's really easy to get on and off trams (that aren't packed) by locking the front wheel. My two frustrations are that the fabric on the hood (black) fades and the seat recline buckles are fiddly, but worh practise they're fine. I also didn't use it with my newborn, because we mainly used a carrier for the first four month , but believe you can get a bassinet for it!
Great looking pram
Easy to maneuver and folds with the press of 1 button. Fits in my mazda3 boot (small!) And still room for shopping and is not too heavy. Great pram for forward facing babies and young children alike. Good quality materials and build. I've had many compliments on this pram so highly recommend.
This pram is one of the best prams i have used. Can not rate this pram enough. Having two children so i have bought and sold a few as they were to heavy and not that comfortable for a baby and toddler. This pram ticks every box. It's stylish, super comfortable and easy to maneuver and easy to fold down. It had large wheels that make it super sturdy for walking and jogging. Would highly recommend this pram but the only down side is the wheels have to be pumped up regular and can get punctures.
Questions & Answers
I’m looking at this pram Mountain Buggy Urban 3 and wanting to know how easy it to push with one hand ? I have big dogs and wanting to walk them while pushing the pram. My current pram phill and Teds 4 wheels is horrible to push with one hand. Also is this pram heavy to lift in and out of the car? Thanks
I noticed there's a zipper on the hood of my UJ. What is it idee for?
Hi! Would an 2015 Urban Jungle suncover fit to the older version of Urban Jungle ( pre 2015)?
