Mamas and Papas Sola Review


B Loves: This can be used right from birth and is light and versatile

B Aware: Extras push up the price and the handle does not adjust

This pushchair really is suitable right from birth as the softly padded seat unit is not only comfy for baby but also has a reclining function which goes completely flat for newborns and can be adjusted using one hand.The pushchair is relatively light for a good quality pushchair, at just over 10 kilos including seat and chassis and the seat has a five  point safety harness to hold your little one securely in the seat. You have the choice of your baby facing you, which is great when they are tiny, or facing the front, which they love when they get a bit older and ore inquisitive. The footrest can be swung up for nap time leg support, or down for sitting up, with the two chunky buttons on either side. Whatever your height you will find that the handle adjusts to be comfortable for you or your partner and it feels comfortable to the hand. The chunky silver chassis will be long-lasting, with generous wheels and good suspension to gives a smooth push over uneven pavements. Under the seat is a fairly modest shopping basket, which is simple to get into even with the seat reclined. Folding is quite easy, and the pushchair locks together when it is folded and stands alone. You can add lots of accessories, though these do push up the price, including a carrycot, suitable for overnight sleeping, a car seat and more. The raincover is included in the cost, as is the apron.
