Dubai Our Sandbox blog written by mum of two girls Emily Liden, shares her thoughts on the Mountain Buggy Nano.
We find our stroller… The Mountain Buggy Nano, let me tell you why it’s a best buy and why we love it. It’s a no fuss, ultra compact, light-weight with the full features of a buggy/stroller. If you are not sold yet, here is the full review…
About the size…
When it arrived, I expected compact but it was even smaller and well packed in it’s own travel satchel with exposed handle and shoulder strap. It’s about 56x31x51cm when folded and at 6kg I found it easy to carry around.Thinking travelling made easier…. It is accepted as hand luggage with most airline as it fit into many carry on luggage units for planes. But when it’s unfolded the Nano looks like a normal, full size pushchair. It’s compact feature does not take away from the comfort of your child.
The Mountain Buggy Nano is good for children up to the age of 4 years old, thanks to a multi-height padded safety harness and padded seat with its adjustable leg rest. The 2 position seat recline with ventilation panel is great for napping on the go. The seat is definitely roomy with plenty of head room for older kids. The sun canopy could be a little more extended but we managed and used our Snoozeshade when really needed. The under storage is great! The basket is easy to access from the from and could carry lots of our bits and pieces.
Design and technicality…
The Nano is intuitive, easy to fold and unfold. It folds forwards and down on top of itself, turning it into a folded-in-half, almost square shape. Mountain Buggy has designed the pushchair to be unfastened with a flick – gravity does most of the hard work. Technically it’s not a one-handed fold because closing it back up requires you to press both buttons on either side of the handle.
It was easy to manoeuvre, with good rear-wheel suspension and an easy push pedal brake with colour definition shows when you’re safely parked or ready to go.
You could use the Nano from birth, it has built in adaptors to attach a car seat such as the Maxi Cosi. Another good travelling feature.
The Nano is such a good stroller that it received the Red Dot Design Award! “Throughout the world and across different industries, Red Dot is seen as the award for high design quality. The international Red Dot jury bestows the sought-after seal of quality only to those products that stand out clearly from comparable entries thanks to their excellent design. …”
Not much really! As I mention the sun canopy could be bigger and there is only one handle bar position (not a problem for me, I am a shorty).
The Mountain Buggy Nano is a best seller, it’s been sold out on BabySouk.com due to popular demand. New shipment arriving mid-October! Don’t miss out you will love this super light, compact and well design stroller at reasonable price. Available at Babysouk.com, AED 1,399.
