I brought the Living Trio speacail edition white label, for my unborn baby that is due Jan 2012. I am a bit dissapointed due to the description, The Buggy and everything is supposed to be all white with silvery trimmings, when it arrived the silvery trimmings were actully a dusty pink! This Buggy will be no good if I have a boy! I would like to have known it was pink before my purchase. Also the instruction are very difficult to read so you do have to take a good 15 minutes to leave to... (read more)

I have bought this travel system hoping I will not have to buy another pushchair or stroller later. Unfortunately, I am now desperately searching the web in order to find something for my 15 months old daughter. PROS: -3 in 1 is good up until the point when your baby becomes a toddler -sturdy pram/carry cot, good quality material -the carry cot can be used (with accessories bought separately) in the car for long journeys for babies under 6 months old. -nice design -easy to switch components...

THE CHICCO WAS THE BEST PRAM I EVER BROUGHT!! I BROUGHT ITIN 2008 FOR MY SON AND IT HAD EVERYTHING THE CARSEAT THE CARRYCOT ETC. IT DID GREAT GETTING OVER ALL TYPES OF SURFACES. IT NEVER GOT STUCK IN THE SAND, IT WOULD GET ARCOSS WET GRASS, IT COULD DO ALOT. IT FITTED IN THE CAR VERY WELL. THE ONLY TINGWAS THE WHEELS WOULDGET DIRTY AROUND THE BRAKES BUT THEN I FOUND OUT CAN TAKE THE WHEELS OFF AND CLEAN PROPALY WHICH IS GREAT KEEPS THE BRAKES GOOD ASWELL.
I GOT PREG 1YEAR AND HALF AFTER I... (read more)

Overal very disappointed had to buy another stroller for our six month old.
Wheels fall off, frame rattles, hood keeps falling down,too narrow for our baby at five months, and heavy. Chicco just blame the retailer when you try to give them feedback when its a poor design. Wouldnt recommend, stay well clear at £500 a rip off. (read more)

Chicco Trio for me: excellent pram, although it needs an umbrella since the hood is a bit small. very convenient hood of stroller seat. bag of satisfactory size. too small front wheels. hard handles. a little too heavy when the baby faces the mother. it looks light and handy but it's a bit tough to maneuver. no absorbers. the bag under the seat is not easily accessible. very heavy car seat - difficult to use as a bouncer - with a too little hood. generally not convenient if it is to be used...

I bought the chicco trio for me as I liked the design, my daughter has Down syndrome so I wanted a pushchair that would provide her with enough support if it took her longer to sit and walk.
Sadly this pushchair has been a waste of money. The design is great but the manufacture is appalling, the wheels have fallen off in town, the frame is rickety and it is not up to the job. I walk every day with the pram and would expect it to be sturdy enough for this, but now at less than two years old... (read more)

I bought the Chicco Trio 4 Me due to it being apparently light weight and simple to use. I REGRET buying it and at this moment would get rid if I had the money. The pram/cot part was good enough but the brittle plastic holding the hood up snapped and the store (and Chicco alleges the store) could not repair it without the hood being permanently jammed in the upright position. Also the chassis part is very very flimsy and cannot even take a tiny bump up a little raised pavement. I have... (read more)

i have had my chicco for over a year and love it. As someone who has no strength i choose chicco as it was light weight and easy to lift in and out for the car and for me the best overall as its the car seat, pram and buggy all in one. Also great value as my parents only paid £300 from Kiddiecare.
I understand the reviews that this is not a ideal "walking" pram but if like me you are walking pavements, paths etc i found no problems. My son is now 13 months and i still use the buggy section... (read more)

I had similar eperiences - i totally agree with all the negitive comments made. my buggy squeeks constantly and the hood isnt easy to clean either.
Wouldnt recommend after payin £500 u atleast expect to get a carry cot rain cover & 1 for carseat would be gd too aslo dont think the shoppin basket is practical either!!!!!!!!! (read more)

For the money paid, I found this pram to be very flimsy. The whole system feels flimsy and rickety. No good for any rough roads as baby gets rattled about. Handy for the car but not for walks. The hood broke very quickly and the rain cover won't stay in the studs. Unfortunately have great regrets about choosing this particular system. (read more)

I think the Chicco Trio 4 Me is an excellent travel system. I bought this for £299 from Kiddicare.com and it has been brilliant value for money. The car seat is sturdy and has an insert which you can remove when they get bigger - I don't understand the comments about it being "fiddly" to put onto the frame as it is simple, in my opinion. The carrycot part of the pram is easily adjustable, it can be raised so that your little one is almost sitting up and lies flat when they are sleeping. The... (read more)

The chicco trio for me is flimsy and rickety, its awkward to get the car seat on the pram frame as you have to set it down to move the handle and as the frame is so rickety the pins never line up to the slots where the go. Getting the stroller seat on and off is fiddly as well. The raincover for the buggy doesn't seem to fit although the carrycot raincover is fine. There is no raincover for the car seat and when the baby is young thsi is the mian part you use, making it useless for bad... (read more)

Don't really understand the review below. We love our Chicco trio for me travel system and you have everything you need. The carry cot is adjustable so you could raise the base so baby is almost sitting up or down so that its flat for baby to sleep, so don't know why reviewer below hasn't adjusted the base so it isn't 'sloping'. Also, the rain cover that comes with the travel system is for the stroller function so you have to buy the carrycot rain cover separate... and it fits like a dream.... (read more)

I bought the Chicco trio for me for £299 off of kiddicare.com after thinking i'd done alot of research into value for money and how good it was aswel. I live in guernsey (where there are only really cobbled paths and hills), and 2 flights down in a flat with no lifts. When i got it i didn't realise that it was so flimsy, broken and generally of bad quality. The car seat doesn't give much head support and its hard to fit in a smaller car (VW lupo + polo), the carrycot seems to shake about... (read more)

The Chicco Trio Travel System is compact for a travel system and comfortable for baby. It's perfectly safe and comfortable for the little one but very impractical for the parent. I still have to ask random strangers every once in a while to help me fold it...Difficult to steer

After researching into pushchair brands I decided to buy my first little one a Chicco! Each piece is really easy to use, great breaking systems and all round general good design. I bought mine online and got a really good price. I have a Peugot 206 and all pieces fold up nicely in the back which is really important as it's easier to change your push chair rather than your car. I would recommend. (read more)

Chicco Trio Travel System in Shanghai: After recently purchasing the chicco trio combi carrycot/car seat and pushchair unit I have found it to be an excellent pushchair all round, very soft padding and a great 5 point buckle strap.
Lovely neutral colours and the great thing is that all the padding is removable for washing.
It is very easy to push around town but sturdy enough to withold a little one and shopping. (read more)
