Used from birth and still going 3 years later.

published

We bought this pram in 2016 for our first baby and I recommend it to everyone. It is the perfect light and zippy little pram. We loved how light and compact it is and how it's travel system compatible.

We didn't bother with a bassinet as it lies flat and it was perfect for a reflux bub as you could adjust the incline of the seat so easily.

We felt no reason to downsize as she got older so was perfect through all stages and it's still going well 3 years later such excellent value.

In fact, we loved it so much we are treating ourselves to the snap 4 trend for bub no.2.

Purchased in May 2016 at Baby Kingdom for A$300.00.

Great pram but brakes let it down (and forum seems to point to something similar)

published

We got this pram and seriously couldn’t fault it until this weekend when the brakes failed to disengage.

Have been using this pram for over 1.5 years now, love the space (both for bub and storage), handling is top notch, flexibility of reversibility.. I mean can't really fault it.. But this weekend, the opinion has changed.. The brake failed to disengage, so now the pram is no good...

Reading thru the forum it seems to be a general consensus.

Well, it had a good life. Would still recommend it, but would also make u think of a back up..

Cheers, ap

Also have a look at the Valco Baby Bevi Buddy - great idea for a water bottle.

Absolutely Love It!

published

After 4 years of use - I wouldn’t switch!! My main reason for purchasing this years ago was how light weight it was. 6.2kgs isn’t a task to get in and out of the car! It’s so easy to fold and open. And we could use this from new born stage & my son still fits in it at nearly 4 years old! Had absolutely zero issues with it. You can easily clean/wipe the material, I’ve even taken sections and machine washed to give a more thorough clean. Only desire but not a fault is I wish it had a bit bigger gap to put in the basket and to make ease of getting things out a littler easier. Highly recommend if you want something super light and easy to pop open and fold! Takes only seconds.

Purchased at Baby Bunting.

Valco Baby Snap 4 Trend Tailormade

published

It is very similar to the popular Valco Baby Snap 4 with some small differences. The fabrics is different, wheels are slightly different, etc. It is quite a lot more expensive than the regular Valco Baby Snap 4, but I managed to find a good deal for it. It is quite light, compact when it is folded and manuevrable. Good quality overall.

Purchased in May 2019 at Baby & Toddler Town for A$408.00.

Not happy

published

The pram was enjoyable. My wife bought it because it it light weight and easy for her to fold and put in the car... then it stopped folding. Now we’re stuck with a frame that won’t fold and we are in a position where we can either fit the baby or the frame in the car. Not both.

Purchased in January 2019.

Awesome pram and good value

published

Smooth ride feels very light, I transitioned from a 3 wheel stroller with pumped up tires , so it felt a little hard on the bumps at first.
My daughter fitted in snug and it has a great pulley system for either laying her down or sitting right up still being securely fastened with the 5 point harness.
The built in hood is great for sunny/rainy days and the basket/carry compartment underneath is deceivingly big. Really easy to fould down and put in my car and popping it back out is quick and convenient in parking lots and impatient drivers and my child (: overall really great product I have had it for two years now and it still works perfect ... I would definitely recommend

Great in the beginning but bad quality so only enough for 1 child.

published

We loved the pram in the beginning as it was lightweight easy to manoeuvre and light weight with big wheels. But first thing broke at less than one year. The materials used are not good quality. Now with almost 2 years (one baby) it broke in so many places. screws fell off, one handle cuffs came off and the material broke in 2 different places. It has had a normal use, no extreme use. So all in all, I would have bought another brand if I had known.

Brake cable snapped

published

I was initially very happy with this pram. It’s super lightweight and very easy to fold. Fits in the back of a small car with groceries, with no problems. Today however, I started to hear a clicking sound with the wheels and it turns out the left brake cable had snapped and the wheel is now locked. I’m now deciding whether to replace the brake, or just go with another more reliable pram. Unfortunate, as I had gotten so much use from it, but it’s failed just as I needed it for baby number 2.

Can't Fault It!

published

Bought this pram back in 2015 for my first child. I have used it so much and I honestly cannot fault it's functinality, maneuverability and durability.
I gave it a good scrub last year and it came up near brand new and I am now using it for my second baby.
The low cost purchase price is unbelievable and I am so glad it was recommended to me from a sales member at The Pram Warehouse instead of the more costly Baby Jogger.
All of my friends and family are on the their 2nd, 3rd even 4th prams but mine has well and truly stood the test of time. So so happy with this product!

Fantastic

published

It is a very good product. However it is quite unbalanced, leaning toward more toward the back which can be dangerous for the kid when they try to climb on top of the stroller.
I tried using it in the city and for shopping, very nimble, able to turn on the spot and fits in most buses and trains.
Good little handy thing to have especially when it rains

Great pram!

published

We bought the Snap 4 tailormade in blue denim. Its been an excellent purchase. Really glad we got this pram. We wanted something light but not too filmsy. And not too expensive either. At 6.6kg this pram fit the bill. We haven't had any issues with it and been using it for a year now.

Better then expected

published

We went with this pram for two reason, it was a good price and it folded up into a good compact size to fit into my very small car boot, but I’ve been really happy with it as a overall. It’s easy to maneuver around, it’s very light to lift once folder and it’s been easy to clean to! I love the carry basket underneath and it can be reclined to and Angle for bubs comfort.

Brake Cabke Alsi Snappes

published

Excellent pram to use but have had problems. Brake cable snapped on one side and have had a wheel replaced due to faulty bearings.
The pram is just out of warranty. For the price the pram should be far better quality. We bought a $49 stroller in Bangkok which has had more use and less problems.
Will not buy Valco again.

Good basic pram

published

This pram is light, easy to fold and i can maneuver with one hand even with my baby and all baby stuff on the pram. We love this pram alot but not my baby. He was insecure and prefer to be able to see me when he is on the pram.

this is extremely easy to maneuver around i love the fact that it doesn't have those cheap plastic wheels and they have the pump ones, all these prams these day with those cheap wheel and still costing a fortune. It is very easy to unfold and carry very compact for my small car! love the quality and build so happy i got this pram.

Questions & Answers

Dacia

Daciaasked

Hello! I purchased the valco baby snap ultra and have been using it for 18 months now. the front wheel has become hard a bit stuck, it is fine going straight but when you need to turn the pram it needs a very hard push - this I'm sure is damaging the pram further. Do you have any tips?

Have you accidentally locked the front wheel? There is a little mechanism on the front that, when pushed down, locks the wheel to go straight.

Dacia

I wasn't aware of this but no it wasn't locked, I did just pull the wheels out and give everything a wipe down and spray with WD40. Did the trick!

Hi,
I was we have a Valco Snap 4 and due to budget restrictions are looking at buying some second hand accessories.
Will any of the bassinets from other Valco prams fit on the Snap 4? If so would you be able to provide which ones?
Will any of the toddler seat (i.e. Runabout Joey Seat) fit on the Snap 4?

Thanks

Hi Jacinta,

Thank you for your question.

For a variety of reasons, bassinets and other add-on accessories are made to fit a specific model range.

The bassinet compatible with the Snap 4 is the Snap Internal Bassinet (N9202).

There are no toddler seat options for the Snap 4. However, we have a range of ride-on options available that might suit your needs and are compatible with your pram. To see more, please visit: www.ride-ons.com.au

For any other questions, feel free to reach out to us at: info@valiantrbands.com.au - we'll be happy to help :)
