Too long and bulky
I bought this pram second hand after a friend told me how much she loved hers. At first I loved it when I had the bassinet fitted, there didn't seem to be anything I could fault about it. As time has went on however we moved house and I now need to get it in and out the car more frequently which is annoying as it is quite heavy and awkward to lift, and quite bulky. It is also quite long compared to most other prams I have seen, when you have the bassinet on it can be difficult to see the end of it which can mean bumping into people and lots ...of apologies! If buying again, I would also choose one which can be reversed as the sun shade doesn't come very far down, so if we are walking towards the sun it's difficult to shade bubs eyes. Sturdy, reliable Bulky, heavy, too long
Beema was ok
I bought a Swallow Beema from BabyCo 7 years ago for my first child because it was recommended by Choice. We dumped it at the tip when my child was 3, because it was so trashed I couldn't even sell it secondhand. We got a lot of use out of it, and it's not a bad choice. But there are definitely both pros and cons.
Easy to push. Good pocket underneath to put bags in.
Worst thing was it was very heavy to lift in and out of car boot. Also, it aged a lot, so foam on handle had issues, the wire in the hood came loose etc eventually (after a lot of u...
My boy is now 4y.o. We gave this away when he was 2 because I'm of petite frame and didn't know any better about prams at that early months that a pram of such length and weight actually steers me instead of the other way around.We travel quiet much and boy was it a mistake when we visited HongKong and Singapore to find that the people there actually uses more stairs than escalator not to mention manual gates (not the one with detection to open when somebody is close by)). So between my husband and I,we have to lift this on both ends alot. The ...good thing though many people are so much more friendler because The 3 wheeler wasn't so popular then. Many actually stopping us to ask about where we bought the 'Giant' and they coo to my baby son who looked very comfortable on his high seat. IT does the job. My boy was on it till he was 2. Pushes easily and stable. Baby sit taller than most stroller. Cloth material is very soft. Bassinet comes with the package Too big,huge actually. Heavy. Somehow I'm scared to use it on the escalator. Not a good idea to bring overseas (asian country ) as it's (sigh) so heavy to transport in the tube train and stirs,not to mention the un-auto gates that is not too avail in most Asian country

Know better, choose better.
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.
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...

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
