Kiddicare Baby Weavers Quad Travel System may not have lots of bells and whistles, but it does the job, has a carrycot for newborns included and there’s handy accessories thrown in, too.
There are two sides to the Baby Weavers Quad Travel System from Kiddicare. If you’re looking for a luxury option for your little cherub, you won’t find it here. But if you want a cheap and cheerful one-stop-shop solution, this value-price option could be it.
For less than £210, this travel system comes complete with a lie flat carrycot (suitable until 6months), a lightweight pushchair (suitable until 3 years or more), a Group 0+ car seat, a shopping basket, apron, removable bumper bar and a large raincover.
In terms of weight, the Quad buggy is 8.15kg, the carrycot is 4.1kg, and the car seat is 2.75kg. So, as a travel system, it’s a very reasonable 10.9kg to push around.
The rear facing car seat is fitted with your car’s 3-point seat belt. It attached to the buggy with clips, which are provided.
What we love
The price and the package is why the Kiddicare Baby Weavers Quad Travel System immediately grabs your attention and there’s no denying it’s an absolute bargain.
It’s also great to have such a comfy carrycot on lower priced model. Anyone buying this travel system can feel completely assured that their newborn will sleep soundly when out and about and it can also double up as a bed if you’re going away. It’s also got a removable washable liner, which is a big plus.
The Baby Weavers Quad Travel System is definitely one of, if not the cheapest travel system to come with its own carrycot, and I personally think a carrycot is really important for a newborn.
The Kiddicare Baby Weavers Quad Travel System is very easy to put together, folds down to good size, is nice and sturdy without being heavy. It also has a reassuringly safe 5-point harness.
What to watch out for
To a certain extent, you get what you pay for, so the Kiddicare Baby Weavers Quad Travel System isn’t going to turn any heads in the fashion stakes and the fabric feels cheap and scratchy.
Both the carrycot and the car seat sit onto the pushchair, which I’m not a big fan of.
The buggy has two separate handles rather than the one handlebar, which depending on your preference, could be a negative.
It’s a very basic travel system, so if you’re looking for style, fancy tyres or a rear facing buggy option, you need to look elsewhere. If, however, you’re simply after a low end, run-of-the-mill travel system that just does its job, this is a great value option.
The other downside is you can only buy it from Kiddicare, so unless you live anywhere near Peterborough or fancy a long drive, you’ll have to buy it online, meaning you can’t test out the travel system first. Although this is a fantastic price, most parents would want to wheel a pram around the shop before parting with over £200. And because the Quad is still fairly new (it was released in January 2010), there aren’t that many reviews on the internet yet. I know if I’m buying a product like this and can’t physically test it out, I like to read what lots of mums have to say about it.
Who is the Kiddicare Baby Weavers Quad Travel System best for?
Parents after a no-frills affordable option with newborn carrycot.
The Kiddicare Baby Weavers Quad isn’t interested in being a travel system with the wow factor. But what it lacks in luxe style and features, it makes up for in value and the fact that it has a separate carrycot, which is a great plus for such a bargain system.
