i bought this pram from a second hand. but it still strong. easy to use. especilly the large wheel, made push and turn so easy. big storage space are very good for mum carry shopping. only the down side is little bit larger if you only have a small car.
7 years old and still going
I purchased this 7 years ago when my son was born now using it with my 6 month old very happy with the sturdy structure large basket underneath the bassinet is fab for newborn and folds now flat when not in use love the adjustable handle which I could get a capsule to fit in only down side is how heavy it is after having a c section it was extremely heavy to lift out of car
Great for walking
Love the height and adjustable handle, hubby and I are tall. Lays completely flat. Need additional padding for newborn head support but we used a coocoon or safe and sound capsule,
Just flipped sun hood all the way over to the foot of the pram when I had newborn. Easy to walk ith on rough ground, shoulder strap height is great for tall kids. Sun hood is inadequate. Have had many tire punctures from off path walking. Brake system is easy if wearing thongs. Cover is washable. Steers o so easily. Narrower than my Phil n teds. Folds well. Can remo...
Awesome I've loved it.
I bought this second hand and it was hardly used. I've loved it. We walk every day and find it fairly sturdy. I do find that if I'm walking on a slope it feels like it may tip even though it never has) Folds away really well in our car. Handle bar moves to different positions, locks really well. Loads of storage also.
Reliable, sturdy, hood moves to protect from sunlight. Great storage.
Faded! I found the black faded and looked older than it was even though its always in my car.

Long lasting, hard wearing, good extras, one con but a big one in my opinion.
This is a great stroller, sturdy, adjustable handlebars, BIG basket, hard wearing tyres. I bought this stroller in 2007, I bought it in blue/brown which was a mistake as it gets dirty easily, so would recommend buying it in a dark colour, however all covers are washable which is really handy. I also bought the bassinette which is great for the first 0-6 months max depending on size of baby of course, however having just used it for my 2nd baby the bassinette hood has snapped on one side and is unrepairable so I now need to buy a hood otherwise ...I can't use the bassinette again, also the bassinette hood is very noisy to get up and down so not good if baby is sleeping, however the stroller hood is not noisy. Bought sun shade and rain cover which are worth every penny. No option for toddler seat, but not an issue for me as there was a big gap between babies, I recently bought a buggy board for my 4 yr old and it fits well to the stroller. The rear tyres can detach for easier storage, the front wheel can lock in place if you don't want it to swivel while walking. There are a few cons which I will list. No support on seat so baby tends to slump to one side and looks uncomfortable I have rolled blankets on each side of baby to keep her upright, also sides of stroller on inside have minimal padding only piece of material, so baby occasionally bumps head and is painful for her at times, this happens due to there being no support and baby slumping to side as prev mentioned, this is the only reason I wouldn't buy this stroller again. Heavy. I currently have the 12kg stroller, 7kg baby and 15kg child (on buggy board), nappy bag 5kgs (more like 50) ;) so thats pushing more than 30kgs, looking on the bright side I'll be getting fit! Having said all that, it has been 4+ years since I bought it and Swallow may have given these issues some attention so may be worth checking it out.
Durable and effective
Purchased the pram with the bassinet and used from day 1 with our first child and now with our second. The bassinet is fairly straight forward to attach and remove and of a decent size. Note though that when using the bassinet the backrest needs to be down flat and therefore makes it difficult to place items into the bottom storage area. The frame itself is very robust and sturdy which does make it slightly heavier than most. The straps for securing the child are only average and lack padding. The large inflatable wheels are perfect for smo...othing out uneven surfaces, though can be a bit cumbersome when transporting. The back wheels do run off a single axel and you will experience some added tyre wear more than expected. I would recommend to go to a bike shop and purchase puncture prevention tape. This is placed between the tube and tyre as the rubber on these tyres is soft and prone to punctures. Also be aware that the tyres (being large and rubber) will mark walls easily. Sturdy. excellent for uneven surfaces and use for infant and toddler. Slightly heavier than most. The smooth ride from the wheels does come at a cost.
Smooth ride, good quality. Very impressed!
This pram is good quality and quite inexpensive. I was a little hesitant at buying this pram, simply due to the fact that reviews had highlighted it was a big and heavy pram and it was hard to fold down. Yes, you do need to hands to fold it but it is so simple to do. I am so glad I have this pram. Yes, it does take up alot of room in your car boot, but that really doesn't bother me as everything else is great. It is such a smooth ride and easy to manouvre.
I have tried many prams, and this is my favourite. If you're looking for a good-quali...ty, smooth and sturdy pram, this is it. I have tried the Combi brand prams, and yes they are light and you can fold it with one hand, but you cannot go walking off-road and the material is cheapo with no padding and the frame is so flimsy! Obviously if you want quality and off-road use, you have to compromise on size (it's like comparing a Landcruiser to a Barina!!!). Bought mine off ebay for $30 and it is sooooo lovely and still looks trendy! In love! Inexpensive, smooth ride, comfortable, five-point harness, nice design, love how the brakes are just one big bar across (so easy and not fiddley), generously sized, Wish the sun visor could be adjusted further forward, basket more accessible,
Overall great pram my family member has since purchased one six months ago and they have changed the covering actually goes over the black round part that my son hits his head on.When i rang babyco about this i was told they dont know why they changed it but it wasn't because of saftey.They have never had anyone with this problem before.
Great pram for walking also good storage area under pram.My pram is fifteen months old and still in great cond.Easy to steer
The part where the hood joins on to the pram is unsafe as when my son is sitting up in it and he leans to the side he hits his head on it.
So many practical features, besides no cup holders, it's a brilliant pram. I would buy this pram again and again!!
Turns easily. The detachable bassinette came in very handy (my 1st son spent his 1st month of life sleeping in it, day and night), easily folds, backrest easily adjusts, smooth ride, viewing window. You can completely enclose the baby with the bassinette hood and main pram hoods closed over, great when unexpectedly caught in the rain, or if you want to make it just that bit quieter. Great shopping storage, and generous back pouch f...
I bought this pram for my first baby and continue to use it for my second. I am pretty happy with is and would rather lug it out of the car than use my stroller as I can easily use it one handed if need be. If it was not for the above problem I think overall it would be a great pram and to be honest I would not let that put you off too much. I found the features you get are usually found in more expensive models.
Large under carriage storage. Easy to maneuver and push. No worries lifting the front tyre to get up gutters etc. Great on rough road...
Pretty good overall.
We bought it second hand (but was virtually new) and we're pretty happy with it. It was a bit pricey brand new, but I think the prices have come down. Some "second child" options would be nice for the pram so an older kid can hitch a ride - not sure if they do these.
Fits nicely in supermarket isles. Runs smooth. Folds up pretty easily and sits flat in the car boot so we can pile things on top of it.
Sometimes gets "sticky" and I struggle to fold it up - probably due to technique which I haven't quite mastered. Must be a guy thing. It's black, so does tend to attract some heat.
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.
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 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...

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
