Swallow Beema Q has been discontinued. See all Swallow 3-Wheel Prams & Strollers.
It's an excellent pram for active mums who love going for a long walk or run. I have stopped going for walk frequently, so I now prefer a much lighter stroller which can be easily lifted in to back of my car.
A good solid pram to take baby in for a walk or a run.
It’s easy to push and stable even when I hanged a large nappy bag plus shopping bags on the handle.
I love the huge underbasket.
The pram is very heavy & bulky to be lifted into car boot.
Once the pram was in the boot, my Civic hatchback did not have a room to put anything let alone the bassinet that comes with it.
This pram is amazing, we have taken our baby everywhere with us and it is great that it will go anywhere, even in farmers markets in paddocks with potholes... With the bassinette it is a perfect bed for a newborn in the home as well as another way to cart your baby around... All in all great value for money, highly recommended!
easy to steer, rolls over anything (harsh surfaces), seat lays flat, bassinette great for sleeping, fits through shopping aisles easily, folds down easily and quite compact...
there are no cons - there are no issues with this pram, its exceptional
This is a really great pram! They are everywhere but i don't really mind that, it is a good conversation starter with other parents! I did use the bassinet up to six months cos i had the same problems as others when it comes to the straps fitting, but other than that I am completely happy. It is very light, easy to push and easy to fold up. Very comfy to bub and just the best pram I have ever used! I had to get a double pram when my youngest was born so now just having one of the them in this pram is a treat but i would love to see them make a ...suitable toddler seat! Light, very easy to push, easy to fold up, fits well into cars, very comfy for bub, trendy! Generally very happy aside from that you have to pay extra to get the bassinet insert which you really need cos the straps don't fit suitably for bubs under 6 months!
Great pusher, I would recommend this pusher to others. My daughter is very comfy in it. It does not come with a toddler seat but I am not too sure about these anyway (don't fancy a toddler sitting over the top of a baby!!!). Can purchase many extras for the pusher - rain cover, shade cover, padded washable insert, cup holder, tray for child. When looking at pushers this was by the far the best value for money at $449 including the bassinett you can not go past the features that it has. Looking at equivalent features on other pushers you are aro...und the $700 - $1,000 mark and that does not include a bassinett. Best value for money on the market!!! Overall great pusher, easy to fold, very comfy for bubs. Bassinett insert fantastic for newborn to 3 months. Fits easily down supermarket aisles. Back lies completely flat for sleeping. Easy to steer Takes up a lot of room in the boot. Only has 3 recline positions - flat, mid and upright - really needs a fourth position. Basket hard to get to when in flat position
Bassinet attachment wasn't really needed, baby was fine lying down. I wished it had more options for the incline of the seat when baby was little but now he's 3 months the middle setting is fine. I love my Beema Q and it was the best and most economical choice for what would fit in my small car and yet still give me the features I wanted.
Economical, good quality. Has all the features I needed. Fit into my corolla hatch boot better than most. Handles well.
A little bit heavy to lift.
I like several others reviewing this stroller bought it because Choice recommended it and have hated this stroller as I found it too heavy. But I think my problem is I'm not very strong and was crazy to get a three wheeler. I found it difficult to fold up, it takes up most of the room in our boot and I used a baby sling for most of bub's first year until I bought a cheap umbrella stroller. Am now planning to buy a good quality umbrella stroller and wish I had bought something lighter in the first place. Also my baby didn't like it much but I don't know if that was just her preferring to be held close or the stroller's fault!
Good suspension and wheels smoothly.
Very heavy and my baby hated it with the bassinet fitting.
Poor quality pram. Overpriced for what you get.Would not recommend it.Heavy. Awkward to get into the boot. Latch to hold pram together when closed up broke within first week. Have had to pump wheels several times in 4 months. Not suitable for newborns as straps are too loose. Seat in upward position falls down on its own. Doesn't steer straight.Plastic bits on the inside where hood joins pram are sharp & unsafe for bub.
Looks good...colours are good.

I love my Beema Q, it has everything I need. It is easy to wheel and fold and doesn't weigh a lot. Shopping is fun as the Beema Q fits easily in the supermarket ailses while my baby sleeps beautifully in the bassinette.
I'm really happy I chose the Beema Q.
Lightweight, easy to wheel,heaps of storage, easy to fold, bassinette.
Good quality pram with all the features I need.
None, I am really happy with my Beema Q.
Not too bad a pram. It serves it's purpose and is good value. If I had my time again I would've searched a bit further for a good pram rather than buying the first one we seen. It might be cheaper than prams such as mountain buggys and bugaboos, but you get what you pay for, and I wish I had invested in a better quality pram. Being my first baby, I guess I underestimated the importance of the pram and how much I would really be pushing it. Overall, it's ok, but it is bulky and probably suitable for babies over 6 months of age, unless you in...tend to use the bassinet for that time, as the straps really don't fit. Good value for money, suitable for walkers (the large wheels seem to serve well on long walks on most terrains),easy to fold / unfold. They're as rare as bum holes!!! Everybody has one. Seriously, a walk around my local shopping centre and I will see 5 in ten minutes. Not the be all and end all, but a little annoying. I agree with all the other reviews that say the straps just don't fit the baby at all!!! My bub often ends up slumped to one side, but thankfully he is fairly content and doesn't give me a hard time about the silly pram choice we made. My front wheel makes a rattling sound, which drives me a little crazy. It is a little heavy to lift into the car, but it is a three wheeler and one of the lighter ones at that.
The best 3 wheeler available in my opinion. If you are looking for a 3 wheeler pram that is the best in class and doesn't cost the earth, then this is it. The safety aspect (which is the main reason that I bought it) is second to none.
Everything. I have had this pram now for over 12 months and am 110% happy with it. It is easy to steer, is safe, strong and very well made.
It doesn't have the option for a toddler seat but frankly I am glad as it would compromise the safety of the pram.
Highly recommended with bassinette attachment for newborns, but not the best as a stroller for older babies; not supportive enough and baby slides around too much.
Sturdy, smooth, easy to push and decent storage underneath. The bassinette attachment is excellent for newborns; our baby was quite small and we felt he was safe and protected in the basinette. Used it for several months, and he slept in it during the day in the early weeks. Easy to clean as the removable fabric bits can be gently machine washed.
It's large, very heavy and awkward to...
I wanted a 3 wheeler as I do lots of walking and am happy with it for this purpose, and it's narrow enough to fit through aisles.
Only bought this based on the choice magazine recommendation. A little disappointed with it due to the faults I have listed in my cons that weren't identified on the Choice mag. I have seen cheaper ones that have more features I would have liked, such as cup holders, better ventilation, colour choices.
Feels nice and smooth to steer once you get it going (front wheel in right direction).
Adjustable hand grip heigh...
very easy to pull apart to wash. I chuck all the bits in the washer.
can steer with one finger .
my baby loves it.
He wont sleep in a travel cot but will sleep all night through it the pram when we are way.
the only thing i would say is that i would love to see the company bring out a toddler seat for this pram
i have not found a single problem with mine.
I LOVE THIS PRAM! I honestly did not think there would be a pram better than my Emmaljunga but I was wrong. I like the fact that you can attach the bassinet when you have a newborn and can use it when camping instead of having another bed to carry around. The adjustable handle is great as I am short but my partner is over 6ft so we can both use the pram without back ache. I don't jog and they don't recommend the pram as a "jogger" but the strap comes in handy as I live in a hilly area and knowing that the pram is attached to my wrist puts m...y mind at rest. Black isn't the best colour for sun fading but so I guess that's why they've brought out the new model in grey and blue. I can reach into the basket underneath the pram even when the pram is completely flat, which you can't do with some three wheelers and the same goes for being able to fit through supermarket check-outs. I love knowing I can fit through all of the aisles without having to line up at the disable access or ask for people to open it for me. I only have one child so far, so the fact that you can't attach a toddler seat doesn't bother me yet but I may need to look at getting a new pram if and when the second one comes along. You can remove all the wheels to fit in a small car boot, although I don't have to as my boot is quite large. Fits through supermarket checkouts, light weight, clips shut when folded, bassinet attachment, jogging strap, adjustable handle, removable wheels, front swivel wheel, can use the basket when pram is flat. Scratches foot step when folded, front bar is hard to remove and no toddler attachment.
It looks good as it comes with everything for the price, however, I would not even go near this pram until your child is old enough to sit up strongly and is big enough to have the straps hold them in place.
Not too wide - good through checkouts. Bassinet feature is handy (this is an optional extra) and used only for a short time.
Clumsy to fold. Wobbles around a bit - not very direct unless on a smooth surface. My biggest complaint is the fact it is totally unsuitable for a baby under approx 6-9 months. The restraints do not adjust small enoug...

How to you put this pram diwn
Does anyone know where I can get parts for my beema Q Swallow?
I have been given a swallow whisper stroller. It appears to have lift up flaps either side that when lifted look like capsule adaptor slots. Can I buy adaptors for a maxi cosi capsule. Thanks Victoria
