Paige Crowson & Rob Free’s Armadillo Pushchair Review
Our Armadillo pushchair is the perfect companion for your summer adventures. With a light, compact frame, easy steering, protective sun canopy and large, comfortable seat – how well did our Armadillo pushchair handle adventures with our Parent Approved Panellists, Paige and Rob? Read their Armadillo review below…
If you are like us, and don’t like to stick to the path. The Armadillo pushchair is perfect for those adventures away from the track. First impressions of the Armadillo is how easy it is to assemble. It took no more than 5 minutes (even with little hands helping). We were off to a good start!
The Armadillo isn’t style over substance, I am the first to admit that I can sometimes prioritise style. But the practicality of this stroller hasn’t been compromised. The sleek colour palette and the quilted interior add a sense of luxury, this isn’t your bog standard stroller! With leather handles, high quality fabric and sturdy silver frame, the Armadillo stands in a league of its own. Anyway, the design speaks for itself, so I will move on.
For us as a family, a foldable pushchair that we can easily pack in the car and keep up with our on the go lifestyle is a must. What initially attracted me to the Armadillo was how compact it is. There is plenty of ‘wiggle’ space for little bottoms, but folds up neatly in our hallway. The one hand fold is such a lifesaver. Being able to fold the compact pushchair up and down with one hand really is a parenting win!
If you have a little one that does a lot of napping on the go, I would definitely recommend the Armadillo. It’s sturdy frame and big wheels make any trip (even those off path) smooth. Thanks to its smooth full recline position, adjustable leg rest, and padded foam seat, your little one can really get comfortable and stretch out when napping on the go. The extra large hood serves as a good protection from the sun or rain. The magnetic viewing window means you can peak in and check on your snoozing babe without waking them up (another parenting win!).
The five point harness makes the Armadillo suitable from birth to 15kg. We started to use the stroller when Oakley was 6 months for beach trips and weekends away. I worried he would be too little. However, the five point harness made the pushchair feel safe and secure even on for a young baby. They really have covered everything.
Finally the basket space. Let’s face it leaving the house with a baby means you have a whole load of baby paraphernalia. The Armadillo has you covered, I think we have managed to squeeze an entire picnic in there.
Overall the Armadillo is the perfect compact folding pushchair. It has been cleverly designed to make parents life that little bit easier. The pushchair feels high end and has passed our all terrain test!
