The Juli 3 in 1 pushchair from Kinderkraft comes with the bassinet/stroller seat and the MINK car seat (read more about the MINK on page) in this budget friendly kit, it is available in Pink, Navy and Grey and suitable up to 3years of ages or 13kg whichever comes first. The frame weighs 6.1 kg, the seat 3.85 kg and the child safety seat weighs 3.3 kg and it measures up at 77.5L x 31W x 57H cm, this gives the stroller a nice and lightweight of 10kg.
The Juli has been designed as a multi travel system that grows as the child grows by converting the pram into a stroller with a few moves, saving space and money. The frame is made from steel, with 100% abrasion resistant polyester materials on the seats and EVA foam wheels for comfort and protection, a lot of the attachments, accessories and levers are made from plastic, this reduces the weight but doesn’t feel as robust as it could be. There are two buttons on the handle that need pressing at the same time before the stroller can be folded down, this stops it from accidentally folding but can make the process a little fiddlier, requiring two hands at times.
The Juli comes with universal adapters making it compatible with many other child safety seats of brands such as Maxi Cosi and Cybex in case grandparents and other care givers use different seats. The MINK car seat and bassinet/stroller seat are easy to switch between and can be configured in front or rear facing, while the seat can be adjusted into three different positions, lying down, sitting or reclining. The buckle on the backrest is used to recline the backrest in a smooth and gentle way, meaning it can even be done when the child is already asleep. The seat features 5-point safety belts with large, soft protectors prevent chafing, there is a footrest, which is made from a special easy-to-clean material. Underneath there is a large basket to store shopping or any other necessities, there is even a cup holder that can be attached to the frame to keep your drink within reach whilst you walk, who knows you might even be able to finish it.
The Juli also comes with a foot cover for cold weather, rain cover and a window in the canopy so you can sneak a peak at baby on the move. The central brake is easy to push on and off with your foot and the wheels can be locked out for better handling on rough terrain. The wheels are made from puncture-resistant EVA foam, making them rather hard, this and the limited suspension means that it doesn’t handle as well over rural terrain, making it better suited for urban living. The Juli 3 in 1 delivers a lot for its low cost but the build quality is where you are compromising, it’s not the type of stroller you will feel comfortable bumping about over rocky ground, but the smooth handling makes it ideal for the high street and shops.
