Reviews on this site have been quite positive but personally, we're a bit disappointed with our Strawberry.
The folding mechanism is great, the stroller feels solid, is nice to push around and bubby always looks comfy in the carrycot. However, there are a couple of things that really let it down.
Having just hit autumn we've discovered the front wheels are designed in a way that results in their being very prone to becoming clogged & jamming with leaves and twigs. This can happen just walking around leafy paths & pavements and worse, once it starts to jam it's almost impossible to access where you need to clear out, which means a walk around the park can become a nightmare.
On top of this, the poppers for the carrycot cover are awkwardly located behind chassis bars. The cover has to be removed every time bubba goes in or out so it's a real pain. Also the carry bar for the cot blocks your view of bubba and again, has a mechanism that’s stiff to operate when you want to remove it.
Overall, these all add up & we just feel for the money spent we can’t really excuse the basic flaws in the design, so I’m afraid to say we do regret the purchase.
