We bought this stroller to keep at Nanna's house to use when my daughter stayes over, its light but feels substantial when pushing, its easy to fold and fits into a small car. I have read most of the negative reviews on this stroller and can honestly say I haven't experienced any problems. We always make sure baby is strapped in correctly, we don't put extra weight on the handle i.e. shopping ect, and always take care when mounting and dismounting pavements ect, no pram is totally safe if...

Hi guys, i've got one of these for my 2 year old daughter and honestly I do think it is a good pushchair! Yeah alot of you have said it tips forward with the slightest bump in the pavement. Well the pavements are all crap! The pram has a small front wheel, being a little cautious when pushing it on a crappy path or a bumpy road should come second nature! I've had it happen once but the pram just stopped. I wasn't rushing. I was walking at my normal pace when i'm pushing a pram - which is... (read more)

DO NOT BUY THIS STROLLER!! IT IS DANGEROUS!!
I too wish I had read the reviews first rather than listen to a friend as I have nothing but grave concerns since owning it regarding how on earth this pram passed any safety tests. It is not only top heavy, but if any weight is put on the rear it will tip back also, even if your child decides to turn around to speak to you getting up onto their knees it will tip. If my son leans to the left or right whilst sat strapped in i have to struggle to... (read more)

I have recently swopped my buggy for a BRITAX VERVE. He is almost 2. My initial reason was tha was trying to find a buggy that would fit in the boot of an old mini and this actually does :)
The 1st time i used it it took me by surprise going down a curb to the slightly bumpy road it tipped alomost strait over which was very scary. Not having a 3 wheeler b4 i wasnt expecting that so now am more careful and must admit i warn whoever takes it out to be careful cos potentially this could... (read more)

I bought the Verve as I like the look of the Quinny Zapp but wanted a slight recline.The stroller is great as an umbrella stroller/shopping/errand one only.It's not a stroller for walks in the neghborhood.There is only as much to expect from a lightweight stroller! never had issues with tipping/being unsteady,even with bag hanging at the handle.My daughter is comfortable and loves the bar to hold on to.Reclines enough to let her relax while i shop.Basket holds bottles,snacks and wipes which...

I bought this Britax Verve Buggy then read alot of bad reviews about it. I was gutted convinced it would have to go back but i have to say i havent had any problems with it tipping or been unsteady as yet. I only paid 49.99 for it which i think is excellent value for money! but i will say my son is 20 months old and i think his weight has something to do with it being steady, it may feel abit unsteady with a young 5 month old baby in im not sure. It definitely looks the part its light and... (read more)

I love the Verve, I have never had it tip over or get caught. You do have to be careful going up the curb but that is common sense. It is easy to put up and down and fits in the car easily. My daughter just loves it and has also had many naps in it. The only thing I wish is that it reclined just a little bit more. Great value for money for a stroller. If you are walking on rough road you need a mountain buggy! (read more)

After reading several reviews, I have a need to write my own on the Britax Verve Buggy to say, I think this pushchair is great for the money and better than the Quinny Buzz as it has a slight recline.
My son loves it, we do have a couple of issues with the front wheel getting caught in pot holes but that would happen with any 3 wheeler pushchair as 3 wheeler is more likely to tip than 4 its one of the laws of physics!
I would recommend the pushchair and I would also buy it again. (read more)

After 6 months of using the Britax Verve, I can definitely say it's well worth the money (mine only cost £79.99), as a lightweight stroller for nipping down to the shops etc. it performs very well. I know there are a lot of comments about the Verve tipping over but if you are careful with it and don't put the front wheel down first on curbs and such like you will have no troubles. I especially like how small it is when folded as I only have a small car. The storage basket is a bit on the... (read more)

We bought the Britax Verve Buggy as a temp buggy to be used whilst on a holiday abroad. I also decided to use it in the months leading up to the holiday- what a mistake!!!
The buggy is lovely to look at and feels ok to push but I feel it is VERY DANGEROUS!!
Whilst pushing the buggy if the front wheel gets caught- and THIS DOES happen alot in my case - then the whole buggy tips forward!
It also gets very dirty easily and is not able to be cleaned easily- as you can't remove the fabric,

Ive had my buggy for three weeks and as many others have found the front wheels get stuck on the slightest bump it does tend to tip and the springs have fallen out of the front wheel twice thankfully my daughter is 2 and i only brought it as a quick substitute so she wont be in a buggy for to much longer but i wouldn`t recomend this product again especially if you have a much younger child (read more)

Mine tipped over twice and as a result my grandson landed face down both times. The first time my fourteen month old grandson was ok but the second time (same day) he landed face down. As I picked the buggy up with the help of passers by I saw his mouth bleeding and he was sobbing. I also fell whilst pushing it. He cut open his mouth and broke his top front tooth. I was devastated and so was his mother. (read more)

I bought this pushchair just before Christmas for my one year old son. On a number of occasions the pushchair tipped at a slight dent or stone on the pavement, the front wheel stopped dead and the back wheels flew up but fortunately i was able to pull it back. Until the last time I used the pushchair about a month ago the pushchair tipped completely over and I flew over the top. My son was fortunate to escape with cuts and bruises to his face but the speed at which the pushchair tipped it... (read more)

I bought the Britax verve plus at the beginning of February and after a week it would not fold down. After sending it back there sent me a new one two weeks later and the first time I used it it up-tipped. My son banged his head on the pavement and I fell on top of him. I had to take him to the hospital but luckily he was alright. If the pushchair hits the smallest bump it up-tips. I rang Britax and there said to take it back to were I bought it and I will get a refund but I'm taking it to... (read more)

Hmm - Had mine for a good few months now, admitedly with a slightly older baby (10 months when we bought it) but have NEVER managed to tip it over, even on bumpy roads etc... Probably woudln't hang heavy things off it without buggy weights to stabilise, but then I don't tend to do that anyway... Daughter loves going in it, sleeps well, and seems comfortable... Love it. In fact, I'm now researching reviews to find out how easy it is to get fabric on and off for use as a travel system with a... (read more)

Had my verve for 7 days and it's going back! I would never ever promote this pushchair, the slightest bump in the ground the front wheel stops dead which could result in the buggy and you flying forwards, the 4 times it happened to me I was lucky enough to be able to pull it back! Luckily the eBay seller is refunding but I won't let it stop there, I'm going to ring Britax and recommend this site (as well as many others!) and trading standards so no other buyer has to go through what I did...

Fits the Britax cosy tot premium car seat which is the reason I bough it and for this reason it served me well till baby grew out of car seat. However, you have to remove the whole of the seat fabric in order to use the car seat. Although it only takes about 5 minutes to put the seat fabric back onto the frame in order to use it as a pushchair, its not something thats easily interchangeable like a travel system. (read more)
