Familidoo Air Pushchair 4

Familidoo is a new brand to the UK, and we are glad they have arrived and not just for how satisfying it is to say their name, originating from France Familidoo set out to create an ultra-compact and light pushchair suitable from zero months all the way up to 15kg (around three years old). The Air Pushchair is available in four patterns Pure Black, Grey Denim, Bear Blue and Black Panda, it is also newly available in Twin edition but only in the Grey Denim design. The pushchair comes in a handy carry bag making it much easier to transport, it can be held in the hand or popped up on the shoulder, this also helps to keeps any dirt or water on the wheels and chassis from making a mess of your other belongings or clothing. The chassis is made from a strong but lightweight aluminium frame and the whole thing can be folded down and redeployed with one hand and the lever and button combination prevents accidental triggering, speeding up at least one part of travelling with a little one. The Air is compact when folded at just 43 x 24 x 60cm which expands to 62 x 42 x 103cm when fully assembled, it will stand up on its own when folded down which is useful when so many bags and gear end up on the floor whilst you pack up the car.

There is a deployable rain cover and reasonably sized shopping basket underneath the seat, the foot brake is located in the middle of the base, it is one of the more delicate areas of the pushchair, a thicker plastic would make it feel more robust, but it performed well at quick and secure stops. The seat can be reclined to a near flat position which makes it suitable for the new-borns however it is advised to lay 0-6month olds in a carry cot. As little one gets bigger the seat can be brought upright, it does have a slight recline on it still even at its most upright which might not be suitable for those kids who dislike being laid back even in the slightest. There is a detachable T-Bar for added safety and gives little hands something to hold on to on the ride. The pushchair handles surprisingly well for its price range, there is front and rear wheel suspension which does a good job at delivering a smooth and sturdy ride. Other features include the 3-panel sun canopy and integrated 5-point adjustable safety harness. The Familidoo Air focuses on being a compact and lightweight stroller, this means it isn’t packed with features, there are no cup holder or other attachments, but it doesn’t need them. It’s not the most plush or luxurious of pushchairs but you are still getting good value for money, it perfect for urban trips with a little one, it is easy to pop away in the car, fold up quickly before jumping on a busy train or bus.
