We bought it for our son. I have had no complains about it yet. Very nice and elegant. IT has enough space for baby to turn around while lying down.

Lightweight, attractive & a dream to push
After a lot of research I purchased the Valco Baby Snap Ultra Tailor made in grey marle & I’m in love. The pram is super light weight & a dream to push. The storage basket under the pram is large & easy to access even when the seat is fully reclined. My baby is lying flat in bassinet mode and seems very comfortable. My favourite feature of the pram is the extra large hood with the ventilation panel - With the boot cover on the hood will close completely keeping your little one protected from the sun, rain etc. An all round great pram & fantastic value for money. I additionally purchased the tan leather handle bar covers to protect the handles. Highly recommend.

This pram is all you need
This pram I love how it converts from a bassinet to a toddler seat all in one. The back rest which can be adjusted is perfect for babies that have reflux as they don’t have to be lying flat. And when the baby gets bigger and wants to look around it’s perfect. The hood has great coverage and air ventilation. Good size basket underneath.
I personally fold the pram up with the bassinet attached. By doing this the pram is very long when folded up but no problem when you have a soccer mum car! To unfold the pram is easy and is a good weight when carrying and lifting.
I do sometimes find the button on the handle hard to push in when folding the pram up but overall very happy!!
Mine is a few years old but absolutely love it. Has been an awesome second Pram!! I had a more expensive fancier pram In another brand before this, and I had nothing but problems. The snap is excellent value for money!!
This pram is spacious but light and easy to store, with a decent sized basket. I have the air filled tyres so easy to steer, has good suspension and I have never punctured a tyre yet and I walk 45mins to an hour most days of the week. Also has a nice big hood, so amazing for sun protection, and has been so helpful when my son ...has fallen asleep to keep noise and light out. I’m out in the sun almost everyday with it, and it’s not faded a bit. Only thing that would have been great is a leather handle and bumper the foam can wear easily (or be chewed through easily)

Great all round pram
Such a great pram. It’s super lightweight compared to most on the market which is a must when lifting in and out the car. It also has a large under basket which is great for nappy bag and groceries. The seat is large so will be comfortable for my big girl when she is older, it lAys down flat so suitable from birth without the need for a seperate bassinet whihc only needs to be stored when not needed when baby is older. adapters can be bought to attach a car capsule whihc was great for us.
The pram also folds down fairly compact so can fit in the boot of most cars. We have a small Mazda CX3 and it fits no problems.
Great pram but can sometimes be difficult to close
This is a good value for money pram. We paid $500 for it and it came with a bassinet. It's reversible too. It's not too heavy so it's easy to pull out of the car, but I sometimes find it hard to close. If I was to recommend a colour, I would go for black. We bought the taupe colour and I noticed that there are water stains where I have spot cleaned it.
Massive safety flaw!
Warning to all parents to be very careful with this pram! I thought I had purchased a lightweight easy to use pram that was safe for my 4 month old daughter. Whilst walking into the shops one afternoon, the pram (which was parent facing) out of no where dropped backwards with my daughter inside!!! Thank goodness she was strapped in as I would hate to think what could have happened to her! This is the second pram I have purchased in 4 months as the first pram (another Valco baby) had another fault with the studs and the cover. Staff at the store said the seat appeared to be faulty as it wasn’t clicking in properly so offered to replace it however after two seperate issues, I have changed to a different brand.

Good pram for price
I went and look for a new pram for my new bub after my old pram had been used for 4yrs.
I picked this because it's reversible, great price compared to the similar function ones in the market. Light weight.
However I would prefer if the handle of the pram is adjustable, and if they can include a few accessories when purchasing it would be even better for value.

Easy to use. Can be rough
So far this pram has served us well. Bub is 14 months and at full stretch when seat is reclined shes almost got the feet hanging over the edge. Easy to set up and pack down. Can be rough for a newborn as there’s no cushions. Easy fix to buy a comforter. Amazing storage which is needed

The service is terrible. Regret buying this pram
I personally regret buying this pram. First off, I thought it was just difficult to fold the seat attached until someone showed it to me that I didn't have to. That when we realised the buttons were jammed. It was still under warranty so we got it checked out and replaced. When we got the seat back it literally got jammed again after one fold. We then went to the retailer and spoke to them regarding the problem. The manager said apparently they are refusing to fix it again because they had just put a new fitting in and apparently we used too mu...ch force folding it. As if it was our fault. I then showed the manager of the retailer how I fold it. The manager replaced the seat with the display model for the mean time until Valco fixes our seat. Our daughter was born in August so really we haven't been using it for too long. The pram itself is pretty average. The bassinet mode is good, although we use a liner to make it softer for our baby. The seat belt is difficult to adjust. When reclining the seat, it looks until at the back. Suspension is average, good on flat surface only. Our tyre got pierced by a screw- still works. As first time parents, I wish the salesperson showed us different prams ans show features we need in a pram. I wish I had bought a different pram all together regardless of the price.
10 months and still working great!!
Have had this for almost 10 months (basically left the hospital when our baby was born). Very sturdy and is wonderful as it transitions as your baby grows.
-can adjust the capsule itself either forwards or backwards as your baby grows. It doesnt affect the comfort ability when in they are in it, especially when on different surfaces bubs is very secure especially if things get bumpy!!

Bloody Love my Snap Ultra
Purchased at a baby bunting in Warners Bay, Our Valco pram in Navy came with a boot cover aswell. The perfect pram for a newborn and transitional to suit my now 8 month old. Easy to pop up and pack away. Only downside is its the only thing that sits in my car boot- But wouldnt want any other pram!
This pram does the job, and is easy to fold down and get into your car. I would recommend this pram , I have never had any issues with it. Three years and still going strong.

My feelings after a week of use
Comfortable, with good cross. Immediately I say the steps are still that obstacle for her. Compared to older models, many times better. Easy to use. My feelings after a week of use.

Excellent, well priced pram!
I love this pram! I did quite a bit of research and had a list of requirements that I wanted when buying a pram for my baby. Lightweight, large basket, forwards and backwards facing, decent tyres, easy to fold, fits in the boot of my car, suits newborn to toddler, well priced....etc. This ticks all the boxes! It lays flat for newborns without needing a bassinet attachment (however one is available if you need one), the basket underneath is large, the 'Tailormade' colours are lovely (I got grey), and it has a large hood to pull over for shade (a...s well as the boot cover for winter). It is one of the lightest prams on the market which is great for me as I'm not very strong. It folds down without having to take it apart, and the seat can be placed facing the parent or facing outwards. You can even buy a snack tray attachment which looks great (but I don't have one). Only negative is it is difficult/fiddly to adjust the strap lengths as baby grows. It is a nice looking pram (especially with my custom pram liner and strap covers!). I still use it now (2.5 years later) and it can be used up to 20kg! Overall, I am very happy with this pram and I would definitely buy it again, and recommend it to others! Fantastic value for money!
Loved it great pram especially for the price
Love this pram. Lightweight, easy to steer, nice big storage basket at bottom although broken due to me overfilling, fantastic sun and outdoor elements coverage with large expandable hood, pockets in back of seat perfect for phone wallet keys or even a drink bottle, easy fold, child very comfortable even a 4 years old still falls asleep in it. As a mum without a licence this pram has been a godsend it averaged 9km outdoor usage and 4km indoor per week the bus trips and train trips shopping trips car trips nice and compact for holidays. Yes after 4 years the tyres are worn out but it has done its job above and beyond.
Happy, but a few flaws
Pros: sun shade goes right over, versatile seat come bassinet style which can face both front or back. Nice height for tall people-though when I’m on power walk my feet do kick the bottom of pram. Fair weight not too heavy.
Cons: 5 months now-it’s starting to just feel a bit ‘rickety’ the brake on it-I wouldn’t trust it could be tighter. I’ve already had problems. Screws came out of the sun shade cover, the foot cover elastic is all stretched out and the compartment at the bottom has torn (nope we haven’t overfilled it).
All in all happy enough but for the money you pay, it’s a bit tacky in some areas.
Great stroller, but it broke after 20 months
We liked everything about this stroller, except that it broke after 20 months of use - it was out of warranty and we did not get 2 years out of it before sending it to landfill. There is a wire inside the rear axle, which allows control of the brakes, and this wire just snapped putting the brakes on permanently to one side. We are disappointed because we've owned cheaper strollers that have lasted twice as long.
In any case, we did like the way this stroller manoeuvred, the extendable sun shade and reversible seat. The stroller is also at a good height and is light weight. The only thing lacking in this stroller is durability and perhaps it is not as easy to fold up quickly for commuting on a bus or train as some others.

Every mum needs to try this pram
We purchased the baby bunting exclusive navy snap ultra and it is amazing. Lightweight, easy to manoeuvre, easy to assemble and disassemble. Can steer it with one hand while balancing a toddler on your back lol the strap on the base when folded helps with moving it while disassembled and the basket is roomy and easily accessible. Love that the hood can unzip to cover the entire pram providing protection from sun, wind, and giving privacy to Bub. Easy to adjust the seat recline and easy to use buckle. To top it off it is so stylish and affordable priced. Definitely one to check out.
Questions & Answers
How do you know it won't cost state is compatible with the Val snap ultra tailormade
Valiant B.Valco Baby
Hi there April,
Do you mind clarifying the question? :)
Hi, does the snap ultra fold as small as the snap4? Needing a car pram that will fit in the boot of a 2019 Prado with both seats up, so extremely limited space! (I think my snap4 would fit with the wheels off? Maybe? So it needs to fold as small or even better, smaller then the snap4).
Valiant B.Valco Baby
Great question. The Snap 4 is the most compact fold we have in our range, so off the bat it's a smaller fold than the Snap Ultra.
However, because the Snap Ultra has a removable seat, you may be able to fold the Ultra more compact (in two pieces) - we find this is what a lot of our customers do.
Hope this helps :)
I have a snap ultra trend and the front left wheel keeps pulling to the left and is quite dangerous is there some way to fix it?
