In a nutshell

Despite being stylish and compact when folded, this buggy doesn't handle well.

The Nurse Run4 is good looking, but doesn’t feel that robust and isn’t suitable from birth.

Nurse is a Spanish brand that creates car seats, pushchairs and travel systems. Nurse is the stylish value range of Jané, the Spanish car seat and buggy manufacturer. Nurse’s catch cry is to “make luxury available for everyone, at the best price.”

The Nurse Run4 buggy is suitable from 6 months, and is based on a 10.7kg aluminium chassis. Style wise, the Nurse Run4 is attractive, with a touch of the Bugaboo Cameleon about it and a bigger touch of the Quinny Buzz. It offers forward and rear facing options, is easy to fold and has an adjustable handle.

The Run4 is travel system compatible, and by adding a Nurse car seat or carrycot, it also means it can be used from birth. There are three Nurse carrycot/car seat options to choose from: the light (2.4kg) Piccola Group 0+ car seat; the Duplo, a lie-flat carrycot-style Group 0+ car seat that converts to a rear facing car seat; or the Capazo carrycot, a Group 0 lie-flat option.

What we love

The Nurse Run4 may have four wheels, but it handles more like a 3-wheeler buggy. The choice of having the buggy rear or forward facing, the height adjustable handle and footrest, plus a shopping basket, means all the basics you need are covered.

Once you have the knack, the Run4 is easy to fold (using a central sliding axis mechanism). Once folded, it takes up very little space in the car boot.

What to watch out for

Unless you’re pushing in a straight line over smooth ground, the Nurse Run4 doesn’t handle well. I frequently found the swivel wheels lock out, especially when pulling the buggy backwards. It’s a bit like when you try to push a shopping trolley with a dicky wheel. Once, the wheels jammed and almost tipped the buggy over. If you hit a bit of a slant on the pavement, it can veer off to the side. I found myself gripping the handle, white knuckled, because it didn’t seem secure.

Nurse claims the Run4 is suitable for babies from 6 months of age. Six-month-old Minnie, being a small baby, was snug in the buggy seat. Jack, her 14-month-old friend, looked squished. The ride also wasn’t comfy. The solid wheels led to a bumpy ride, despite the front and rear suspension.

The height adjustable handle doesn’t offer much scope for change. At 5ft 6in even my feet kept hitting the brake.

The Run4 is available in two colourways, which both have a design inspired by the London Underground Tube maps in the hood and (thankfully reversible) footmuff. I found this pattern headache-making.

Who is the Nurse Run4 best for?

Parents with petite babies after a stylish look at a reduced price tag.

MadeForMums verdict

The slimline, light chassis of the Run4 make this an attractive looking buggy. The option to move from rear to forward facing is a handy feature, but overall the Run4 feels flimsy and doesn’t handle well.
