Good sturdy pram, but only for smaller babi es
I recently bought this pram for my daughter who is 16 months of age and roughly 11-12kg.
Sadly she is already too tall to fit comfortably in the seat. Her head practically touches the canopy when it is extended.
Hopefully this information helps someone else to avoid disappointment. It is an otherwise great pram, sturdy and well designed. But not suitable for older, taller babies.
Purchased in June 2019.
Not bad for its price, but
This is a great pram if you’re not wanting to spend big bucks but still wanting a good quality, durable pram. It is extremely heavy and wide, the canopy does not extend far and the basket is near impossible to access in forward facing mode. I found it great to use with a newborn but this pram combined with the weight for your average toddler is a back breaker. Don’t buy this pram unless you’re intending on buying a second pram when your kid hits 10kg. The weight of the pram is unevenly distributed which means any weight hung on the handle bar can cause the pram to tip.
Purchased in June 2017 at Baby Bella for $750.00.

Unsafe due to tipping over easily.
The pram is dangerous!!!
DO NOT put an bags or weight on the handle. I put my nappy bag over the handle (not heavy at all) and the pram tipped right over. It was in the rear facing position and the pram tipped backwards and right over. Luckily I caught it before it was completely upside down.
This pram should come with a warning to never put any weight on the handle. Even pushing too hard can cause it to tip!
Also wear the child’s head goes is some kind of structure support that you can’t tuck away from their head when sitting up. I tried and it tipped. Annoying as the child can’t put their head back.
Great pram but not a forever pram
This pram is very good to use across all terrains, however, the pram is bulkier & wider than most. I didn't have issues lifting in and out of car but others might find it heavy after a while. We found it very convenient to adapt the car seat when our son was still a bub and fitted in the capsule. My biggest issue with the pram is the canopy, from the beginning the hood clips kept coming off, we kept having to reattach when trying to extend the canopy, and when forward facing canopy rubs against hands whilst pushing pram. Not a huge issue but c...an get annoying on long walks. The storage basket has heaps of room but more difficult to access when forward facing. The other gripe is the height of the pram, I thought it was suitable for up to 4 years but our son is now 15 months and already outgrowing it. In addition both hood clips have now broken off so I expect it's not a forever pram but serves its purpose for a year or two.

MMMMM its not great and its not bad
We looked at prams for about 4000 hours, well probably more like a weeks worth of research and a day in store. We chose this pram for the following
1) Price, $550 plus capsule via redemption
2) Weight, its fairly light but without capsule or seat. Gets heavy if you fold it up with those still attached.
3) 3 Large Wheels, makes pushing it easy.
4) Seat can be rear or forward facing.
Problems to date
1) Fold up clip broke, so it no longer stays compact and together. Small clip probably an easy fix
2) The seating position isn't easy to...

the stroller is very heavy so my wife has difficulty in lifting it up and putting it in the car boot. it is also quite big so it takes all of our car boot space.
i love the fact that the wheels are puncture free so i can take my baby for walking everyday and it is easy to maneuver than a 4 wheel stroller. it is an OK stroller for a budget under $500.
Questions & Answers
Interested in buying this pram.i have the safety 1st wanderer 3 wheels now and wanting to know if the capsule and adapters from this is compatible with the new safety 1st wanderer x.thanks.
Can the pram be put down with the normal seat facing you as I am having issues with this? There seems to be an issue with one of the bars hitting the footrest and it won't click in.
I don't think it can be. Personally, I have a small car so I always detach the seat from the body before packing it in the car, so I have only tried once or twice and it didn't seem to work.
Hey, I'm interested in purchasing this pram and I was curious how it changes front rearward to frontward facing, and is it easy? I've tried YouTube and had no luck
The top seat part detaches from the main carrige, you do this when you fold it too. It's pretty simple; using a button on each side (I do one at a time, because one side requires you to push a button down and in, for secure locking) and you just face the seat forwards or backwards and click it back into place.
