Hi There,

The METRO and JIVE seats will have movement in them once locked into the frame, This is to lessen the impact of bumps etc. Please reach out to the customer care team on 1300 344 964 if you have any questions about your pram and we can assist.

Hi I have metro 2017 and want to use harness 2018 as it's much easier with the circle buckles clips instead of insert 2 top to 2 side clips then buckle. Can it be ordered individual and install?

RedsbabyRedsbaby

Hi Katie,

Thank you for your question, the new 2018 harness has been designed to be easier to use and ergonomic. We don't sell the new harness as a separate item as they are sewn into the seat material for safety reasons.

If you would like to speak with the team, please call 1300 344 964 and we can assist with any questions you may have about the harness systems.

Does the Metro fits in a Mercedes A180?

Hi Monique, the METRO has a lovely compact fold and will fit into most smaller cars on the market. We have tested in a Fiat 500 as well as a Suzuki Swift boot and both fit very nicely. I have included the folded specs below for you so you can measure-up if needed.

I havent faced that problem yet.but applying oil should help like you do with creaky hinges.

Redsbaby
RedsbabyRedsbaby

Hi Angie,

As part of regular maintenance of the prams, we recommend using silicone spray on all of the moving parts of the pram roughly every 3 months. The wheels can collect dust and sand along the way and the silicone will help dislodge this and help them to run smoothly. If you have any questions, please be in touch with customer care on (02) 82878418.

Does anyone have the Metro & a Yaris hatchback? Does the pram fit in the boot? I saw the YouTube clips for 'does it fit' but there's no Yaris. TIA :)

Yes. I have a Yaris hatch and my Metro fits easily (on its side). I sometimes pop off a wheel for better vision but the boot still closes with both wheels on.

Hi - what happens at the Demo days? I am interested in the next one on february 10th 2018. Will the metro pram (and accessories)be available for purchase at the demo day? Thanks

Hi Lara,

We don't physically sell the prams and accessories at the demo days, we have the capability to take orders on the day and we do offer a Gift With Purchase if you purchase on the day. The demo days give you a great opportunity to see the prams in person, give them a test drive and also ask the team any questions you may have. The team are all parents and owners of the prams themselves.

METRO

I'm looking at preordering the new metro2 and everything about it looks great apart from the couple of reviews I've read that say the seat is quite low. I had a bugaboo with my previous children and I could use the pram at the table at cafes which was handy. I've looked up measurements but can't find this. It's the only thing holding me back from ordering, any help?

I own the current Metro model and the seat is 45cm from the ground.

Hi Amelia,

Thank you for your message. The METRO seat sits at about 46-7cm from the ground to where the baby's bottom sits. They provide a great height and tall and petite parents have give great feedback on this height. I hope this helps :)

Hi there! Yes, I go for walks with my bub in my pram and he falls asleep almost every time. It is smooth to walk with and feels strong and durable. The pram is definitely appropriate for taking bub out for a nice walk! Enjoy x

It is very smooth for walks and feels strong at the same time! I didn't have our pram from my son's birth, it's great to see Fishers comment! I got their pram liner too, very nicely made compared the one I bought from other shop. My son is very comfortable in there.

Redsbaby
RedsbabyRedsbaby

Hi There,

The METRO has been designed to use on all terrain. going for walks over gravel, grass being out and about (sidewalks). Our prams (METRO and JIVE) both come with four-wheel suspension, which are based on an internal spring system (within the front wheel housing and the rear wheel axle).

Other features include:

Front wheel locks: stability on uneven terrain and long distances

Four wheel suspension: easy push and a smoother ride

Four wheel design: optimum weight distribution, providing more stability on curbs and uneven surfaces

Leisaasked

METRO

I am not a fan of bassinets in general but I'm really loving the reviews of the RB Metro for our newborn bub (Due Jan. 2018). Do you really have to buy the bassinet for the Metro or can the standard seat lay down flat enough for a newborn?
Thanks in advance!

1 answer
Redsbaby
RedsbabyRedsbaby

Hi Leisa,

Thank you for your question. The JIVE and METRO comes with a separate, freestanding bassinet included to provide a safe and comfortable environment for your newborn to lie in the fully-flat position while their spine and neck muscles are developing. We recommend use of the bassinet during the first few months as this is the best position for newborns to be in. The seat does recline to a fully flat position but the baby would still be in a seated position. We recommend that the seat is used once baby is 6 months /9kg or starts showing developmental signs that they are ready (lifting head, gaining head and neck control and fussing when placed in the bassinet).

I hope this helps :)

Hi,
Does anyone know if there is a universal food tray that can attach onto the Redsbaby Metro pram? Didn't seem to see one on their accessories page.

Hi Renee,

Thank you for your message. At this stage we don't have a snack tray in the range but I will certainly pass your interest onto our design team. You could try one of the larger baby retailers for a universal snack tray :)

how would you describe the size of the bassinet, large or small? I prefer prams with larger bassinets (both in width and length) as I like to keep baby in for as long as possible.

I would say it's large. It's quite long and wide enough for a baby up to 5/6 months depending on the size of your baby.

METRO

I'm really keen on the Metro however I have seen someone mention it not a suitable size for a 2 year old. Anyone using the Metro for a 2 year old and up?

1 answer
Redsbaby
RedsbabyRedsbaby

Hi N&D, Thanks for your question. Weight is the basis for determining whether our products are suitable for a child, rather than the child’s age, as weight varies from child to child. The METRO is independently tested and certified to carry one child up to 20kgs (44.0 lbs).
Hope this helps! Kim - RB Team xx

How well does this pram travel on grass? eg. At the park etc or uneven surfaces?

it's not super on gravel and uneven surfaces. it is not an 'all-terrain' pram. i've found it can be a bit bumpy and get stuck sometimes. that is the one downside in my opinion. otherwise a great pram and i would buy again.

It's not great on uneven surfaces and the ride looks bumpy. Is good on hard packed, fairly even dirt paths, roads.

I have a Nissan Xtrail and fits so that I have space on the side it doesn't take up the whole boot. Sorry I can't help with a car like you own. Check out measurements.
