Initially great, usage is proving differently
We purchased the Jive2 Carbon in January 2019. We were impressed with the demo day, the deal offered, value for money and customer service.
Our bub is now 12wks old, and there has been a lot of pram use. We have found that the frame is lightweight and easy to get in and out of the car. The capsule adaptors are so handy to use with our Maxi Cosi capsule, and switching it out for the bassinet is also quite easy.
In shopping centres and concrete paths the pram is easy to manuevre. Once you get on to gravel paths/uneven surfaces, things aren't so great.
The suspension is ok, but it's not the smoothest ride for our little passenger. We get a squeak in one wheel and there is a rattle in the brake, which is quite annoying.
The basket is a good size, with handy pockets, but i feel it's a bit of a design flaw how the brake pedal pushes up against the basket, if the basket is full, or the flap is out, it's hard to disengage the brake without pushing in to the basket space..
All in all I'm reasonably happy with the pram, but unsure if I would purchase again.

Great at the start , over a year not so good
We really loved this pram at the start. But slowly things are going wrong.
Started with the basket which only lasted 6 months before tearing. Asked for a replacement and was told it was out of warranty. Stupid organised me purchased the pram 6 months before bub was born. So that was my bad luck but found their customer service terrible and rude.
Now the break doesn’t fully engage so it makes this crazily annoying clicking sound.
Compared to friends prams I’ve tried it is really not as easy to manoeuvre.
I definitely won’t be buying the 2nd seat and am probably going to sell it when I have my next baby.
Don’t just look at the high volume of good reviews- if you look hard you’ll see that some people have reviewed before actually using the pram because of competitions run by the company.

The brake system has failed and caused several problems when I was pushing my new born baby in the pram. We experienced an occasion in which it locked in the middle of the road as I was pushing the pram. It was an extremely dangerous situation and with the traffic turning green gave us severe stress.
I also have another issue with the wheels. It seem as though they are unstable, wobbly and move to one side as I push it forward. Also the pram rattled and and shake as I push it. This makes it very uncomfortable for my new born. I do not understand why these things have started to occur on the pram after a few months of using it. I am definitely not satisfied what how it is performing.

love this pram!
there is nothing i don't like about this pram. It's very convenient to assemble, easy to use, light-weighted (relatively to other prams) and compact. i have no trouble loading it when i'm out. I also love the generous space/capacity of the basket for storage. the accessories that come with it are also very handy - eg the sun shade had been the best when my bub was out and the dark shade helped her to sleep when she is out in her bassinet. it's also awesome to have the few different seating positions/height, bub loves this pram too. its been great doing its job on different surfaces. Pricing is reasonable for what it is. woudl highly recommend this pram.

Ordered in January - baby due next week still no pram
We were thrilled when attending a demo day in Brisbane in January to buy a JIve2 Platinum in Mulberry. We didn't buy at the demo day but a week later but still in January. The pram was supposed to be dispatched the 31st of March. It was still ok as Bubba wasn't due before Mid May.
We got a call the first week of April to let us know they had an issue is their warehouse and that they would either send the Jive2 Platinum in Mulberry mid June (wayyyyy too late) or we could change the colour of the pram in Glacier and get it dispatched straight away. Which we did.
Now we are the 2nd of May 2019 Bubba is due in 10 days and we still have no pram. We have had no tracking link as it is not even dispatched yet. We have been following up with the Customer team but they keep telling us our order is being treated at a high priority...
I did not think a second we would have to wait 5 months to get a pram. We would not have bought one if we knew the issues and stress this has caused.

Ordered seat liner on March but it’s May already and still we don’t have it
We have redsbaby Jive tandem and we’ve ordered seat liner for the 2nd seat last March.
Up to now (it’s May already), we still didn’t receive our seat liner.
I’ve been following it up through email and they’ve been giving me the tracking number and I have been very patient before. I’ve been checking if there’s any update through the tracking number but still there’s no change.
When I sent an email to the customer care support, they keep on giving me the tracking number. They said they follow it up but still nothing!
I am so frustrated as we wanted to use it asap!

Mostly positives but 15 months in starting to see many faults
Bought the jive in September 2017 and was very happy at the start with the compact fold, it fit well in my boot and I mastered getting it out and unfolding one handed. After over a years use I wouldn’t buy it again.
The basket is far to small and not deep enough. I can’t just chuck stuff in there I have to muck around arranging the netting to keep things secure.
The break doesn’t fully dissengage from the left wheel and as a result makes an annoying clicking as the cogs rub. I’ve had to wedge something in the gap when pushing the pram to stop the noise.
I’m about to have my second child and there is no way I would buy the second seat for this. What little basket space would be gone, I would be pushing the pram and constantly kicking the second seat as there is not much room between me and the basket as it is.
The biggest issue is only after 15 months use the handle bar has gone sticky, the quality of the material on the handle bar is so bad that layers have rubbed off and exposed the glue underneath, I don’t know how they expect it to last 2 kids. The worst thing about this is I can’t even sell it near the price I wanted coz of the gross handlebar. I messaged redsbaby about a month ago and got no reply, so all their reviews about great customer service haven’t really applied here.

So unhappy with my poor quality pram
Very unhappy with this pram, brake cable snapped after using less than 12 months and Reds Baby support would not fix. I don’t see it lasting through the second baby.

Ticks all the boxes
Easy to use, functional and lightweight. Making it perfect for solo adventures.
Sleek design with great overall shape.
Wheels are durable with no hassles across difference surfaces.
Adaptors allow capsule to be transported straight from the car, keeping bub asleep in the early months of use!
Convertible for 2nd seat, allowing our family to prepare for future use.
We absolutely love our Jive and have recommended it to everyone that will listen!

Would definitely recommend this pram!
The JIVE2 has been fantastic!
-It is easy to open and collapse.
-It isn’t too heavy.
-It does well on all different surfaces: both indoors and out.
-You can even steer it one handed.
We are currently using a capsule with it and it has made transferring bub from car to pram really easy. We didn’t even have to buy adapters to use the capsule, we just use the bassinet adapters.
Additionally, the bassinet attachment has been great for letting bub sleep if we are out and about.
If I had to repurchase, I absolutely would. I cannot fault this pram!

Perfect pram and have recommended to other parents who have bought it
The pram is easy to use in every way from unfolding and folding up to going across any terrain such as rocky roads and sand. The bucket seat seems very comfortable for our little one who loves going anywhere in it and also sleeps well in it when out and about. The bassinet was a great size when he was smaller and the sun shade came in very handy to protect from sun and also from mosquitoes. We have had a lot of people see our redsbaby pram and mention that they wished they had purchased one. They then come back next time and say they got one and love it! Don’t settle for second best and waste your money, get what you want the first time.

Best money we spent!
We went to a demo day and were sold, we didn’t even look at another pram! Stylish, super easy to manoeuvre, lightweight and great value for money. 100% happy with our purchase. I recommend it to everyone!

Favourite baby purchase!
I absolutely adore our pram! so easy to manoeuvre, collapse & lift into the car. I’ve raved about it to all my friends & family so much that FIVE of them now own a Redsbaby! My munchkin is easy to get in and out & all the vents in the bassinet and seat mean I am confident he’s not overheating! I had an issue with the brake but turns out there was a known issue and it will be fixed for free! Amazing service!

Best value for money! Australian Made!
As a first time mum I researched alot of prams. I decided I didn't want to pay over $1,000 and ideally wanted an Australian product.
This pram is lighter than most big names, easily pairs with my Maxi Cosi capsule with adaptors. Fitted in the boot of my Mazda 2. Easy to clean and pop bub in and out with the 5 point harness.
Highly recommended this product to all mums. 10/10.

Quick and easy pram with great features
I love our redsbaby Jive 2 pram. It accomodates for everything . We loved how easy it was to put together & how easy it is to put away in the car. It’s light & so user friendly. We loved the bassinet for the younger days and the 3 recliner seat for the second stage . The extension canopy is handy for the hot days with the option for rear facing or forward facing . Our daughter loves the pram & has always fallen to sleep with ease in it. We love our pram organiser- we think it’s a must when buying the pram. It’s great for storing your phone, dummy and anything you need in a hurry. We think this pram is a great value for money with everything you need in a pram . Everyone that has pushed the pram comment on how easy it moves and how narrow it is - making it easy to get around in shops, cafes and crowds . Definitely recommend this pram to any new parents or parents looking to upgrade their pram.

Love my redsbaby, great pram to have.
Very satisfied with the prams performance on different surfaces, so smooth to push. Suspension is great and my big baby fits very comfortable in it. He loves being able to see me sometimes or turned around looking out in front of him.
Purchased in April 2018.
Great on smooth surfaces. Does not go well on grass at all. Comfortable for my 2 boys. Pitty you lose your storage area when the second seat is in. Hood goes down a good bit to cover baby when sleeping. Disassemble is easy and not heavy.

We often get comments about the superior look of our pram.
We are extremely satisfied with the prams functionality, ease of movement and performance.
The team have also been helpful with any queries.

Absolutely love everything but..
I absolutely love my reds baby jive 2 carbon pram, it’s light weight, so easy to move, folds to easily in one movement (if seat is facing forwards!) Baby is comfortable & will go to sleep in the pram.
BUT... I hate the basket.. it sits too low to the ground, the back board is too floppy & I always forget to put it down when folding the pram so it gets squashed and damaged, & you have to take everything out of the basket to fold the pram..
I would be amazing if redsbaby could just create a stretchy mesh type basket, similar shape & size to the redsbaby metro basket.. that you don’t have to fold in each time & that you can leave your items in while folding the whole pram!
Otherwise I do love it, & recommend it highly! & the love fact that it can become & tandem pram in the future while still staying it’s same size & shape! And the redsbaby customer service is amazing - so quick & SO HELPFUL!

I absolutely love my reds any pram!! It looks amazing, gets around great and everyone I know has one!! Speaks for itself
Easy to manoeuvre around, looks great, my baby loves it. It looks stylish, without the crazy price tag that some prawns actually cost. I got the light grey one and it is sooooooo easy to clean. I love being apart of the redsbaby family
