The Venicci Tinum is currently the brand’s lightest pram, which can be easily and quickly folded one-handed. Although priced at the middle of the travel system spectrum, from £799, there is nothing lacking about this pushchair which comes with a carrycot, car seat and base and a generous collection of thoughtful accessories. What’s more, it’s been designed with attention to detail so not only does it look beautiful with its metal logo placed on the leather strap, zippers with Venicci logo and stylish tags, it’s also handles excellently and can carry a child weighing up to 22kg.

Tested by:

Rohese Devereux Taylor is a journalist and doula and tested the Venicci Tinum with her 6-month-old daughter. She tried it on shopping trips, park walks, city cruising, up and down hills and on some very muddy off-road tracks around her local neighbourhood in Glasgow.

What were your first impressions of the Venicci Tinum?

When I unpacked the travel system, I was surprised at how much could fit into the packaging. It was great to discover all of the accessories too – you seem to get a lot with this pushchair. It felt like good quality and appeared to be designed well.

How easy was it to assemble?

The pushchair was very easy to put together – I did it without using the instructions first time. However, if you decide to use the instructions provided, the picture-led manual was very easy to understand and I was out testing the carrycot and seat attachments in next to no time.

How comfortable is the Venicci Tinum’s carrycot?

The carrycot is deep and relatively light (5.05kg) so it’s easy to attach and take off the chassis. It comes with a thick, plush mattress which is breathable and slightly angled at the head end which I think would be perfect for babies with reflux.

The hood is easy to extend with a zip, so provides ample protection from the sun or cover for a sleeping baby and it has an air vent in the back, perfect for keeping your baby cool in hot weather.

My daughter is tall and sturdy for her age, but there was plenty of room for her and she fell asleep almost immediately on our first walk – a definite thumbs up from us both. The only downside is that the cot is not suitable for overnight sleeping.

How comfortable is the seat for your child?

My daughter is big enough to use the seat, so I was able to test this with her, too. It has 3 recline positions with an almost flat option and can be used world or parent facing.

The straps are padded and easily extendable providing plenty of room for growth, while the 5-point-harness and bumper bar kept her secure.

The hood can be extended easily for naps and sun protection and attaching the seat was a breeze, by simply clicking it into the chassis and pressing the buttons at the side to release it. It also comes with an apron which, although provides some warmth is not as protective as a footmuff, so I had to add blankets and an extra cover during the colder weather.

What’s great about the seat is that it can carry a child weighing up to 22kg when world-facing so will easily last until your child is at least 4 to 5 years old.

How useful is the car seat?

The car seat was a revelation as it was so easy to carry but didn’t feel flimsy. It came with newborn inserts that looked good and were sturdy, as well as adaptors for the pram chassis.

It was incredibly easy to put the car seat on and take it off the buggy frame, as well as the Isofix base in my car. MFM tester Maxine also found this to be the case, “It is unbelievable easy to add and remove the car seat from the frame. Included are two adaptors that direct you to left and right to fit onto the frame and then insert the car seat onto the frame.”

Most importantly, my daughter appeared very comfortable when seated in it. The only issue was that the car seat handle, which also acts as a safety bar, was quite hard to move into place as it was quite stiff.

MFM tester Maxine added, “The Isofix that comes with the travel system has an indicator to tell you if you have installed the seat in correctly – I think its an amazing safety feature that is a must have for parents.”

How much coverage does the hood provide?

MFM tester Maxine praised the hood on both the seat and carrycot, “You can pull the hood right down to protect your child from the sun or if they are sleeping.” She also added, “The netting which is incorporated within the carrycot hood was a nice feature, for more fresh air to breath in and for my daughter to enjoy her surrounding more.”

How spacious is the basket?

Although not huge, the basket is deep and I was able to fit a couple of shopping bags in there with ease. It has a zippable compartment, too, which came in handy to store keys and my phone.

How easy is the Venicci Tinum to fold?

I found it really easy to fold. An added benefit is that the chassis can be folded on its own, or with the seat either forward or parent facing. The chassis with the seat attached weighs 12kg so was not unmanageable to hold and is actually lighter than many of its competitors. Plus, it comes with a strap to make carrying a little easier.

To fold the Venicci Tinum world facing with the seat attached:

  • Make sure the handlebar is at its lowest point and fold up the footrest
  • Pull the folding mechanism underneath the seat towards you to collapse the pushchair

To fold the Venicci Tinum parent facing with the seat attached:

  • Make sure the handlebar is at its lowest point and recline the seat forwards
  • Pull the folding mechanism underneath the seat towards you to collapse the pushchair

How compact is the pushchair when folded?

When folded with the seat, the Venicci Tinum’s measurements were H63cmxW58xL41cm. It easily fitted with room into our Vauxhall Mokka boot (which is not a generous space). I love that it can stand up when folded so it doesn’t get scratched when out and about and is easy to store when indoors.

This was also a feature MFM tester Maxine liked. She said, “The frame and seat are very compact. I have a Mercedes C class saloon and both the frame and seat fit into the boot, with plenty of room left.”

How sturdy is the Venicci Tinum?

I was amazed at how well the Tinum tackled every surface we tested it on. From uneven pavements to wet grass, stony paths and deep mud, the large wheels offered no resistance. My baby wasn’t bounced around and appeared comfortable throughout.

It was really easy to mount and dismount kerbs, even one handed. It can also be moved easily down narrow supermarket aisles and through our narrow front doorway. Maneuvering up and down steps was trouble-free, too.

How is it to push and steer?

The plush handle is comfortable to grip and the pram can be pushed single-handedly. The handle has 5 height positions, which was very much appreciated for us taller parents, as we can sometimes be hunched over with other brands.

MFM tester Maxine also found the Tinum easy to push, “The best part of steering the pram, is being able to steer it pretty easily with one hand. Perfect with you want to take your dog for a walk at the same time. ”

How easy are the brakes to use?

The brake is very secure and we were able to stop on steep hills to bundle our baby back into her blanket.

Is the Venicci Tinum suitable for public transport?

The Tinum would be suitable for public transport as it is narrow and quick to fold if space is tight. MFM tester Maxine can also attest to how slim the Tinum is, “It’s easy to get through narrow spaces, so you don’t have to go off pavement when a car is blocking the path.”

Travel-system

Is the Venicci Tinum worth the money?

YES! The pushchair is as good, if not better than some rivals that are more expensive. The features and added extras are really well thought out and include all the basics you might want in a travel system. I was surprised by how much we enjoyed using it and how comfortable my daughter was. The design and fabrics are of good quality, too.

What extras can you buy?

What’s the difference between the Venicci Tinum 3in1 and 2in1 travel system?

The 3in1 travel system package, £799, includes the frame, carry cot, seat unit, car seat, changing bag, apron, changing mat, rain cover for both the cot and seat, mosquito net for both the cot and seat and car seat adaptors.

The 2in1 travel system package, £719, includes all of the above apart from the car seat and car seat adaptors.

Where can I buy the Venicci Tinum 3-in-1 Travel system?

It is available to buy from Trendy Baby, Amazon and Direct4Baby

MFM verdict:

This is an excellent travel system which is extremely easy to fold and steer. The design and finish are of good quality and both the carrycot and seat unit are comfortable for younger babies, while the adjustability of the seat unit will ensure many years of use. Because the wheels are so sturdy with great grips, the pushchair tackles all terrains easily so it would work just as well for country dwellers as city folk. The basket is on the smaller side though, so a weekly shop might have to wait.
