What they say: We know that you want your second stroller to be smaller, without losing any comfort. And that if you live in the city you’ll have even more tight spaces to squeeze into. That’s why we’ve created the ultra-compact Mamas & Papas Armadillo City.
What we say: “What a great stroller! So easy to put together (you literally pull it out of the box, pop on the wheels and you’re ready to go!), light to manoeuvre (even with a slightly-too-large-for-a-buggy 3 year old in it!) and easy to close too. What more can you want from a second buggy?!
I tested the bright yellow, lemon drop, version – there’s no risk of losing this buggy in a crowd!
The seat looked comfy and the straps were long enough, even over bulky winter coats. The seat does fully recline, perfect for those on the run naps, and the hood easily covered my children. An added extra was the peep-window in the hood – you can check what your child is doing under there without them seeing you! It also comes with a rain cover.
I loved how simple it was to push – there really was no effort involved, and we did test it over grass and off-road conditions – no problem there either!
It folds with a one hand movement; this took a few tries to master but was easy enough and I’m sure it would fit into most car boots with space to spare. Another plus, in my opinion, is how easy the brake is to use – I have damaged toes before trying to turn a brake off!
The basket was a great size and easy to get into.
Overall, I’m really impressed – you can use this buggy from birth as it lies flat, is great value at £179, so easy to use and push, lightweight and narrow without being uncomfortable for your child, and is study enough to use every day. I have to say that I highly recommend the Mamas & Papas Armadillo City!”
