When it comes to getting the travel system sorted for your little one the market can be an intimidating thing, it’s a big investment for something you will be using for many years, so you want to get the balance between functionality and stylish design right.
The Tinum Upline Misty Rose Pram from Venicci gets this balance so right, it is also available in Slate Grey, All Black, Stone Beige as well as this lovely soft pink. This kit comes with a frame, carrycot, seat unit, footmuff, bag with a removable sachet, changing mat, rain cover and mosquito net, the carry cot measures up at 99l x 60w x 112h cm and weights 12.9kg when attached to the chassis, this is suitable for the early days and up to 9kg (roughly 6 months). When baby is a little bigger and keen to see the world around them the seat unit can be swapped out, this measures up at 92l x 60w x 107h cm, it will also weigh 12.9kg when attached to the chassis and is suitable from 0-22kg. The chassis weighs 8.2kg with the wheels attached, this is the weight you will probably pulling out and loading into the boot many times a day and most people will find it quite manageable.
Style isn’t the be all and end all but when you are using something every day for years it might as well suit your tastes, the Tinum ticks all the boxes with design, its smooth lines, minimal look and subtle branding gives it a luxurious chic finish. It has been created to make trips out with little one as easy as possible, the carrycot and seat unit can be removed with just one hand when using memory buttons, you can also adjust the seats hood, headrest and harness all with one hand, leaving the other one to entertain baby. Moving over most terrains is comfortable for both you and baby (although babies seem to enjoy a little bump around) thanks to the solid gel wheels and the additional suspension, however as a four-wheeler it is best suited for urban exploring. The magnetic seat unit harness buckle makes it easier to wrestle baby in to place when they are having a moment, its little details like this that make the Tinum Upline so user friendly. Saying that, we were surprised to see that the access to the large basket is a little awkward, with high sides and a high back means the best access point is at the front which can become blocked but the seats footrest.
One other highlight was the compact folding, it will fold down with the seat unit still attached making life after the carry cot much easier, it can then be stored in your car boot without taking over the entire space. Other features include the water repellent and UV50 fabric, the built-in ventilation panels, the seat can be attached, and the chassis folded in forward or rear facing, and the carry strap attached to the chassis for easier carrying. The Venicci Tinum Upline is excellent value for money, super user friendly, compact and with a lavish design, it’s a solid choice for comfortable travel with your little one. RRP £889
