I have found the apple a lot heavier than any other stroller I, or even my friends, have owned previously. This makes it feel very strudy and durable, but on the flip side it isn't the easiest to get push round the supermarket, especially one-handedly with a todler! On the whole, I haven't minded the weight though, it's been a great choice for us as we enjoy long walks and so have subjected it to rough terrains often! The tires can be prone to puncturing but general upkeep was expected and explained to us when we bought it.
The only main issue I find with its size is that it is quite bulky in my car boot and have had to remove the wheels to do so, in addition to placing the carrycot on the back seat. But this is a lot to do with the small size of my car - needless to say, in my OH Toyota RAV, we have no problems with its size lol.
My LO is nearing 5 months old and still in his carrycot which during these winter months has given him a lot of comfort and protection! Next step is for the seat unit and I am looking forward to him sat up and facing me.
In terms of
I think the apple is very versatile - the seat unit can be both rear and forward facing and most important it is robust. It's so stylish and well designed, nicely padded and the seat has a footrest. It has an adjustable handlebar meaning it's flexible for all heights (from my 5'2" mother to my 6'1" OH). It's very straightforward to change from pushchair to carrycot to car seat (car seat requires separate adapters though) and also we have the option to convert it into a double pushchair so it can grow with the family!
All in all, this has been a great service to my family and more than anything, the amount of compliments I have received out and about on how stylish it is have made it all worth it lol! I would recommend.
