“Unsafe for toddlers”

Written on: 18/10/2013

I am a childminder and was given this pram by a family member. I used this pram for a twenty one month old and at first it seemed lovely, really comfortable for the child, however, as soon as I went to push the pram off the pavements the wheels locked and the pram tipped forwards which was really alarming. I definitely would not recommend this to anyone… Read Full Review

“Love this Pram! ”

Written on: 21/03/2013 by LottieC (1 review written)

After finding out we were expecting #2 we wanted a new pram instead of our Mamas & Papas Pliko. After getting this pram second hand i am absolutely thrilled with it! Very modern and looks nice and smart, the handle is great as it adjusts so me and my otherhalf can push it with ease. Very easy to push, and is a dream to maneuver compared to my Pliko. I took the seat and hood off to wash and it was super easy to do (again unlike my Pliko or Jive which were a pain!) and they came up great. I… Read Full Review

“Love this pram”

Written on: 08/08/2012

I bought this travel system a year ago when expecting my daughter and loved it straight away. It's stylish and caters for all my needs. It only just fits into the boot of my car Bly downside I suppose. I was shocked to read such bad reviews about the pram it's never given me any hassle and I'm now having to reluctantly sell mine due to new baby arriving and needing double buggy. But would def recommend this pram to anyone… Read Full Review

“I Miss My Xcursion”

Written on: 09/02/2012

I got my Xcursion on sale from Mothercare and was happy that it ticked all the boxes. Adjustable handles, Excellent sized basket and parent/forward facing options. The car seat was ok at first but by the time our son reached 4/5 months he was finding it difficult to fit comfortably, his shoulders were too broad and his legs were too long. We did find later on comparison that the carseat was small compared to others on the market. The parent facing option was something I loved on here though but… Read Full Review

“completely unsafe”

Written on: 23/12/2011 by mummy2tia (1 review written)

The first time i saw this pushchair, i fell in love with it. My mum purchased it for me as it was a gift for my first child. Loved how light it was and the fact you could put the car seat straight on to the chassis. Was fantastic when my little girl was tiny but seems that the pushchair doesn't like toddlers. The straps are at the longest and barely fit, i have to force them in order to do them up. The front wheels are useless and seem as though they can't take any weight. They lock and stop… Read Full Review

“Xcursion is no Excursion (Seat Facing outward)”

Written on: 09/12/2011 by tinsletown (1 review written)

Being a first time Mum, was confused what pram to buy. In the end I chose Mother Care's Xcursion. This pram is great when the baby is still a newborn/up to 6months, but when he or she enters into toddler stage its trouble. I know all babies are not the same size but my baby is small for her age, she's not ur average 10mth old, and I'm finding it hard. She is now entering the toddler stage and I find it hell to fit her in. First of all the seat is not a seat, its more like a slide and my baby's… Read Full Review

“Definetely Reccommended”

Written on: 11/06/2011 by sweetdudette (2 reviews written)

When I was pregant I spent hours researching every piece of baby equipment we had to buy as money was tight. I was concerned about some reviews about this but the xcursion ticked all our boxes: Economical, includes car seat, both car seat and pram base can face either way, cosy toes & raincover included in the price and we could get it in black. My son is 5 months old and I cant reccommend this system highly enough. The car seat is very light which I love as I have a bad back. It has a… Read Full Review

“in a nutshell..useless! ”

Written on: 10/04/2011 by Leonidast (1 review written)

in a nutshell..useless!

1. carrying handle is coming off sometimes, causing baby to be dropped!!!
2. front wheels lock and risk of knocking off baby !!!
3. rear wheels frequently need air refill
4. pushchair doesn't fit into a middle-size car's boot (Corolla or BMW 1)
5. closing the pushchair takes considerable time and sometimes stacks, it needs oil to make it work again
6. car chair is very very small, only fits infants of about up to 4 months old

tried also to take it back without… Read Full Review

I brought this pushchair at the weekend and asked about the wheels
She said the reason they lock is because they are on the wrong sides.
Why did you not check the car boot before buying the pushchair????

I've had the same problem, my 10mth old is dangling out of it, I looking to get another pram from Boots. This design is no good for a growing child. The seat is more like a slide.

i love my mothercare xcursion, i had read alot of diffrent reviews about it and was abit put off as alot of people had said about the wheels locking, this has never happened to me thank god and up to now it has been a great pushchair, my son loves it as its very comfy and he looks very snug when he falls asleep, love the way the pushchair reclines, the only downsides i would say about it is the frame is quite large when folded so wont fit into our boot if we take it out we have to put it on the… Read Full Review

“I am increasingly frustrated with this buggy. In the...”

Written on: 04/10/2010

I am increasingly frustrated with this buggy. In the beginning I was impressed and I liked it alot and would happily recommend it to anyone, but not anymore. Because of one very simple design flaw, the front wheels. They constantly lock, spread apart and impede travel, fold under and stop the buggy dead, and are completely useless on wet surfaces and undulating terrain (paths with central guttering channels for example) and send the buggy off in different directions.

I'm sad to have to report… Read Full Review

“I have been very pleased with my Mothercare Xcursion...”

Written on: 13/04/2010

I have been very pleased with my Mothercare Xcursion travel system. It is great value for money and suited my needs for a newborn baby. After reading hundreds of reviews, and trying lots of prams out in Mothercare and Mamas & Papas, I decided the Xcursion offered everything I wanted - rear/front facing seat, good-sized basket, removable chair which can be removed to attach the car seat. I am still using it today, and my baby is now 1. She finds it very comfortable! The car seat is light and… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/11/2009

Do not buy this pushchair!!! Same problems as previous review. I am now on my second one after taking back the first and exchanging but am still having the same problems. Wheels lock, brake occasionally sticks on, its impossible to steer on certain surfaces, the chasis leaks some kind of oil, a bolt has fallen off. I am going to attempt to take it back and get a refund but am not optimistic as it took an hour of arguing with some very unhelpful staff the last time, and that was just for an… Read Full Review

“The Mothercare Xcursion.This is the most useless...”

Written on: 03/10/2009 by Gill Mountjoy (1 review written)

The Mothercare Xcursion.This is the most useless travel system ever. I bought it and used the carrycot/car seat for first 6 months and it was fine. The pushchair however is another story. The wheels lock when you are pushing it. The handle slips when it is on the lowest setting and on certain surfaces the pushchair pulls to the felt making it impossible to steer. I am about to begin court proceedings against mother care under the "Sale of Goods " act as they refuse to change it for another… Read Full Review
