Obaby ZeZu Pramette
The Obaby ZeZu Pramette, with its all-in-one carrycot and seat unit, is suitable from birth, and can be used as a pram or stroller.
The Obaby ZeZu Pramette is designed to cater for your little one from birth to toddlerhood, without the need for a separate carrycot. While you can turn it into a travel system by purchasing the additional car seat, you might choose, for whatever reason, to stick with the idea of have a pram versatile enough to change as your baby does.
What we love
Assembling the ZeZu Pramette was fast and logical, even without detailed instructions.
One of the ZeZu’s top features is the flexibility to offers: the pram to easily convert to a stroller, and it can be used in either can be rear or forward facing.
The handles are really easy to adjust, and the pneumatic wheels meant 7-week-old Cormac had a well-sprung ride, even when his older brother, 9 and 7, had a turn.
It also feels sturdy, has a viewing window in the hood, as well as a pocket for phone and keys (I do the school run without a bag or coat) and a clip to lock the frame shut while folded.
What to watch out for
The Obaby ZeZu Pramette has some downsides, especially when being used for your newborn. Cormac’s head was wobbling around considerably even on a flat pavement, which we stopped by putting a rolled-up blanket around him. However, this didn’t really do much for the ZeZu’s good looks!
It does fold up reasonably small- if the wheels and bumper bar are removed. It’s easy enough, but it was annoying after just a few journeys.
The other annoyance is the safety strap that requires threading clips through stiff fabric openings each time.
Who is Obaby ZeZu Pramette best for?
Mums after a stylish pram and stroller in one, with the need for a seperate carrycot.
The Obaby ZeZu Pramette can easily be turned into a travel system, and is suitable from birth even without the extra car seat. The all-in-one carrycot and seat unit keeps things simple, and the option of rear or forward facing really does help this feel like a pushchair that can be used for baby as well as toddler. However, be aware of head-wobble when using with your newborn, and that to fold it down to a small size means wheels and bumper bar have to come off.
