The Click ’n Move 3 is Kiddy’s latest stroller suitable for babies of 6 months up until 4 years. It has an oversized sunshade that can cope with rain and sunshine alike and spacious under seat storage – complete with a zip – for all that baby paraphernalia and shopping.
It can be used either parent or forward facing, with the pram seat, the Kiddy Evolution Pro car seat or a carry cot (the latter two of which have to be bought separately).
Other features include an adjustable handlebar fit for the tall parents, suspension on the wheels which are easy to remove (the wheels that is), a one-click foot pedal brake, an adjustable leg rest and a large peekaboo window that can provide your little one with much fun.
The seat pretty easily clicks into 3 positions and the same can be said for collapsing the Click ‘n Move 3. From an incredibly flat to upright position with a relaxed recline in the middle. On the whole moving the seat into the positions is simple…once you’ve got the knack.
What’s in the box:
What we loved
The design looks sleek with the black frame of the chassis and bright choice of colours for the seat. My favourite is Sunshine but I wouldn’t say no to the Hawaii or Apple either. For those with more classic tastes there’s the choice of shades like Racing Black and Walnut amongst others.
Like so many mums, storage is a deal-breaker for me and it feels like Kiddy knows how much. I love the huge, zip-up shopping basket. Actually it’s more like an underseat rucksack.
It carries a sizeable amount – at 5kg it’s made with a thick, sturdy canvas the best thing is you can close it. This storage completely zips up all the way round, protecting your belongings from the elements and better still, from curious minds and sticky, little fingers. (I spend far too much time prizing my toddler away from the content of my bags!)
The price of £275 is reasonable for a pushchair. If you’re thinking about getting a travel system, for an extra £150 you can purchase Kiddy’s co-ordinating car seat the Evolution Pro. This fits directly onto the Click’ n Move 3’s chassis and has an innovative lie-flat feature that’s safest for your baby when used as a travel system. So it’s safe to use as a carrycot in the first 6 months before you move onto the seat. A travel system for £425 – not bad is it?
It’s nice to have the choice of forward or parent facing with the Click ‘n Move 3. I know it’s selfish when all my baby wants to do it see the sights not mummy. Another plus is the seat’s super easy to reverse. You just pull up the two side levers, and it lifts right out.
When folded, this stroller’s quite neat which is handy for storing if you need all the space you can get in your hallway. It’s also pretty painless to fold but there is a technique to it. If you still need to save space on extra in your boot, the wheels do come off.
In two smooth moves, this buggy is collapsed. Basically you just pull up the levers on the handlebar, then grasp the lower handle and it slides down. It’s great the way it self stands too.
Other useful features include the car seat-style adjustable straps and the wheels are lockable at the front to make it easier to go on rough terrain.
What to watch out for
The pram felt a bit too rickety to me. The creaking was off-puting and it didn’t feel as sturdy as I imagined. It wasn’t the easiest to push either (two hands definitely required).
The pushchair easily fits in and out of my car boot but I can see it being a problem if you have a small car as it isn’t the smallest. So I would definitely take measurements.
The one-handed lever to recline the seat is conveniently hidden at the back of the seat however because of this it wasn’t as easy to find when in the horizontal position.
In truth, I had a love/hate relationship with the built-in rain cover. The idea of a rain cover neatly tucked away into the bumper bar is ingenious but the colour was less so. The silver colour looked cheap to me when it should have been black, matching the rest of the pram. Besides, it was really baggy – which would be fine in the winter with plenty of blankets underneath, but it looked strange without them. Also, the cover only covered the bottom half so I’d worry about rain blowing into the seat or onto my little one.
I was a bit disappointed with releasing the foot brake at times. What should be a simple, easy to use one-click mechanism involved a fair bit of wriggling before I could move on at times. Also, while the brake is perfectly positioned in the middle of pram when forward facing, the brake was out of sight when parent facing and tricky to find.
Another downside to the design was the stroller seat being so low down coupled with the extra-long handles. My daughter felt too far away even when she was parent facing! But I can see the benefit of a long and adjustable handle for the taller parent and particularly daddy with those long legs!
