Here’s something I never thought I’d find myself saying before becoming a dad. I do enjoy putting a new pushchair through its paces!
This week has been no exception. I’ve been pushing Amelie around in the brand new Joie mytrax flex signature which has been designed for use from birth up to 25kg.
I don’t know about you, but I hate reading instructions unless I really have to. I’m always keen to get going and Amelie was trying to board her new transport too!
Intuitive design is therefore the order of the day and this pushchair didn’t disappoint. I had removed it from the box, unfolded it and attached the wheels, hood and armbar in a couple of minutes.
I needed to adjust the straps to fit Amelie too. This took a little longer, but I would be alarmed if they could be removed and reinstalled quickly.
It’s a nice, sturdy pushchair that has clearly been made with high-quality materials. It’s good to know that it has been tested beyond standard weight usage too.
With the assembly and safety boxes emphatically ticked, it was time to get moving.
When asked whether she was comfy, Amelie replied with a resounding yes. I wasn’t surprised as it looked really comfortable. Speaking of which, the faux leather finish on the pushbar is a nice touch.
So it’s stylish and comfortable, but is it practical too? Well, for starters, I was pleased to discover that it can be folded via a handle in the seating area.
This is a design feature I’ve seen on other pushchairs and, personally, I think it should be standard on all of them! It makes folding it away quick and easy – particularly when you’re in a rush.
It’s easy to steer, even with one hand. Thanks to its nifty spring suspension system – both in the main body of the pushchair and the wheels – it provided a smooth ride for Amelie too.
It also fitted on the bus with space to spare and would easily fit in the boot of most cars when folded too. The brake is easy to operate and locked the pushchair firmly in place with a satisfying click.
Looking at space from another point of view, there’s plenty of room in the basket. There’s also a zip-off clutch bag for carrying essentials.
Also in the box are a rain cover for the pushchair and a clip-on cupholder for adults. Both must-have items for British parents at any time of year!
In conclusion, I’m very impressed by the Joie mytrax flex signature. It’s well designed and manufactured, safe, easy to assemble and use and it looks the part too.
The Joie mytrax flex signature has an RRP of £299.
