This product us to be known as "Valco Zee Spark"
Perfect First Pram
Being a first time Mum, I found shopping for a pram daunting.
After much consideration, I purchased this pram.
My baby is now 9 months old and I am very happy with my Valco Spark.
I wanted a pram for $500 or less as I was not prepared to spend big dollars on my first pram.
I also wanted a reversible seat and did not want to have a separate bassinet attachment to store later.
This pram is every thing in one.
I found that it was great as I was able to alternate between seat and bassinet to suit my baby's needs.
The pram is very user fri...
When looking for a pram there were a few criteria it had to fill - and this made it somewhat easier to eliminate the hundreds of prams that are available - if it weren't for our criteria I think it would do our head in!
We required a pram to be:
- Easy to use
- Bassinet option
The Zee Spark ticked all these boxes and more with the convertible seat into bassinet - eliminating the need to have to buy a separate attachment (which we loved).
The pram is light enough for me to load into the car without too much of ...
This is a great stroller for everyday use. It's easy to manouver and relatively light. It converts from bassinet to regular seat easily and it can face both ways. It has 3 different recline levels and you can attach a few different brands of car capsule with an adaptor piece.
forwad and rear facing, don't need to buy separate bassinet attachment, very easy to manouver and narrow, very easy to fold and set up, can use with a car capsule
you have to lift the seat off the chassie to fold and even tho the pram when put together is acrually quite small compared to many others, the fact that it's 2 pieces means it takes up quite a lot of space in the car.
Very good pram
We bought this pram after looking an nearly every pram out there! Our baby is 6 months old and it has been exactly what we were after. I love how it converts from bassinet to upright seating without needing any extra attachments. It is easy to separate and pop in the boot, it's lightweight and not bulky when pushing around the shops. There is one thing about this pram that is very annoying though. The clip that holds the hood on always (and I mean every time we use the pram) pops out, which causes the hood to collapse. This is very annoying whe...n your baby is asleep and you need to fiddle with a clip which is right near the head of the baby. We have already had it replaced once and it still happens. Apart from this I think its an excellent pram. size, weight, colour hood clips
It is exactly what we wanted. A small practicial easy to use stroller.
It has two easy buttons to take the capsule off and two mor to pull to fold down and it's done! So light weight that I can lift it anywhere and easy to pull up and lock into position.
We are first time parents so I don't agree with the other review but these are just our opinions.
We got the red waffle colour and I love it! We wanted a stroller to use as a bassinet mode and toddler and it does just that! It's not too wide so I can easily use it in the shops. We got it just under $500 and we think it's good value you so far.
Over engineered not for new parents!
We bought a Valco Zee Spark from a representative at a baby expo. Apart from the wrong information that we were given (we were sold two addiional attacments that actually didn't go with the stroller we purchased) we're not very happy with the stroller. I returned the first one we were given as it did not stay up when being re-opened. Although the second one works, the bassinet cover doesn't sit well over the seat, the two triggers you pull to collapse it are difficult to pull impossible when holding a baby, the bassinet straps are pretty po...intless, the seat harness comes from behind where the baby sits so the baby will be sitting on two black bits of plastic, the underneath is to small to fit very much in it, and the zip that connects the hood to the seat is made in a way that the zip is nearly impossible to open or close. for a 500 stroller - it looks pretty, but is way too smart for its own good and is not practical and easy to use. looks pretty

Questions & Answers
I purchased your Valco Snap Ultra Pram,we noticed our baby being pushed to 1side we thought it was baby's positioning. When we change to sitting position on the pram (from lying), we noticed a structural defect of the pram. 1 side of the frame was not screwed which is very unsafe for our wiggly 7mo baby now. We brought it back to Babyland Perth (5wks ago) but we were told to bring it to a pram repair shop which was closed because the person in charge was on holiday, it was very far (2hrs drive) we were not able to comeback. We were not even being offered with replacement even if the defect is very obvious and very dangerous, it wasnt even our fault that we got an expensive defective pram. We spent money on an expensive pram,we are very disappointed because the danger has been put aside before our baby.I'm not playing around, I can send you photos of the defect of you pram.

My son is 5 months old so I was wondering if I buy the Valco spark is he going to be to big to use it in the bassinet mode? He is 9.4 kgs and long for his age also. Any feed back would be great?
Hi. My son is also 5 months old but smaller and I feel like he is getting too big for bassinet mode. I think it depends on how active your baby is. My boy is trying to sit up in it. If your baby Is happy to lay there I think it would be fine. You can tilt it so that it's not flat when in bassinet mode too. Hopw that helps.
Our daughter is 5 months of age and 7kgs - the bassinet is not that big and our little one is very active and rolls and moves a lot, so we don't put her in it in that mode. The pram is easy to use and folds down easily, but does take up a fair amount of space, we have a small SUV and it occupies the entire rear floor space.

Hi Beca, thanks for your question. As a rough guide, we would say you will get up to 6mth in the bassinet. If he is already 5 months old and long for his age, you may not be able to use the bassinet feature for very long. Having said that, the seat does have a full recline and would be suitable for him after this time :)
