Product Review - Chicco London Up Stroller

~ Posted on Wednesday, August 10, 2016 at 12:08 AM ~

I have been cutting down on doing product reviews ever since our 3rd kiddo came along in end of Sept 2013 and especially now with 4th kiddo due in mid of November 2016. I do still accept review pitches but only when time permits and if it is something that I can see it being useful and beneficial to our family. Also, as busy as I am with 3 kiddos, being preggy, home cooking, educating our kiddos, taking care of hubby's administration site of the business and swamped up with managing my FB page and blog, I just can't say no to reviewing products from a big brand name like Chicco, a well- established brand from Italy since 1958 and have been in Malaysia for 13 years now. All the more I gotta say yes!

We received 3 products from Chicco for our review and today's post will be on "Chicco London Up Stroller". I chose the Red Wave color (there is one in Blue Wave) as I personally like the striking colors (can see from far hahahaha) as well as most of our baby products are in red anyway (the OCD-ness in me wants to match everything in a color hahahaha)

We brought the stroller along during a recent family outing at a nearby mall. Hubby practised opening and closing the stroller once before we head out and he said it is easy to handle the stroller, also very light-weight as well. Once we reached the mall, our 2.5-year-old girl eagerly stood nearby waiting for daddy to get ready her new stroller.

Please note that we are a set of cautious parents and would want to strap our kiddos safely wherever they are but when the pictures below were taken, being a boisterous and very smart cookie, she refused to be strapped by the 5 strap safety harness because we were getting ready to have our very late dinner at a Japanese restaurant. You can see herself being happy and delighted to be seated in her stroller while we have our food.

Once dinner was done, we strapped her up real nice and got our 4.5-year-old girl to push the stroller to see whether it was easy for her to handle and maneuver it or not. Big sis happily pushes her little sister along while we rushed to some shops for my very urgent last minute shopping on pregnancy clothing hahaha.. I like that the stroller is light-weight enough for our 4.5-year-old girl to be able to push along her little sister, very easy to maneuver and she really enjoys pushing her little sister everywhere, even at some points, racing away from us!

Look at the amount of damage shopping I've done! I'm so happy that I can hang the shopping bags onto the stroller's handles! Unlike our previous stroller which has a single handle bar and I need to get some small gadgets to hook onto the handle in order to carry some bags, the Chicco London Up Stroller just makes my shopping life easier!

Now what I like about this stroller is that it caters from newborn stage up to 15kg which is very good for us! It also has 4 reclining positions which you can easily adjusts single-handedly. I also adore the big netting storage basket right below the seat. It can really store lots of things! Btw, the stroller also comes with a transparent rain cover but we just keep it in storage as we don't use it at the moment.

Also would like to share that it really doesn't take up much space in our car boot, even with the 3rd row of seats being used up, we still have enough space to put in the stroller!

Overall, a very good product that is versatile and caters to your growing child from even newborn stage! We love it!

We received 3 products from Chicco for our review and today's post will be on "Chicco Twist Baby Chair Cyclamen". I chose the purple colored version as that's my favorite color hahahahah... Now this chair is a 3-in-1 chair in the sense that:

  • It’s a chair where the material is soft and comfortable for your child

  • It’s a chaise longue where your child can lie back in comfort

  • It’s an armchair which allows maximum relaxation for your precious one!

According to the product info, the chair is suitable for your child age between 1 to 5. Our 2 girls (age 2.5 and 4.5) enjoy squeezing themselves and sitting in the chair together. Inseparable sisters!

Now I gotta confess something here... there are few occasions where I uhmm... actually also sat in the chair while hubby and I enjoyed our late night movie watching after the kiddos went to bed. I do need to prop up a pillow and the top part to support my head but otherwise, the chair is just as comfortable for a 5 months old pregnant woman hahahah! I love it!

You can see the pictures below where our girls even use the chair for their playtime. They slide their toys from the chair (like a giant snow mountain I guess) and our 2.5 year old girl has on several occasions warned her older sister and brother not to sit in her sofa chair! Very protective of her belonging hahaha!

Now, I always check out the product in terms of whether it is easy to clean or wash when there are mess or dirt. As a parent you have to do that with young kiddos in the house, there will bound to be mess, stains and dirt! Now look here, the chair comes with a removable cover to guarantee the best hygiene, easy to unzip and remove for washing! There's also protective covers to cover up the zip area and you need to use a paperclip or something like this in order to unzip the cover.

You can see in the picture above from the unzip portion, the chair has soft but sturdy padding making it both safe and comfortable for your child. Nice!! Pictures below showing before and after chocolate milk stain made by our 2.5-year-old girl. Instead of removing the whole cover, I used a wet cloth to wipe the stain area. Easy peasy!

Chicco Twist Baby Chair Cyclamen

I am just impressed with the sturdy, easy to clean, lightweight and convenient to carry chair and it doesn't take up much space. Just love it!

Overall, a very good product that is versatile and caters to your growing child. We love it!
