Mother&Baby Awards
  • 2016 Silver Best Lightweight Buggy/Stroller

The Armadillo Flip XT pushchair is now available in Donna Wilson’s distinctive Three Bears design. The print combines deep greys and pops of forest green in a playful design with textured fabrics to be loved by big and little bears alike.

Tested by dad Chris Pain for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow dad?

We highly recommend this high quality lightweight buggy.  We loved the flip fold feature and found it almost revolutionary.  It is easy to transport when folded and simple to use.  The design is both stylish and extremely practical.  The ride was smooth and our baby was very comfortable while remaining safe in the quality harness.

How does this product make your life easier as a dad?

We believe that this flip folding lightweight buggy would make every parent’s life easier.  It easily fits into the boot of the car.  Its frame and features are extremely sturdy which means that we would not have to worry about replacing after a year or so.  The wheels and frame are so strong that a walk around the woods was not too tricky.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I would change two things about this product.  Firstly the yellow colour attracts wasps, but I have viewed your site and seen that your can get it in other colours. Secondly, I believe the price is a little too high for a lightweight buggy.  Although it has a superior quality, I would not pay more than £250.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

A fantastic lightweight stroller that has award-winning features, I would highly recommend this buggy to fellow mums.  I love the extra-large hood cover, it is soft yet weather proof and very stylish.  I also love the quality materials used to make the seat and foot rest.  The fold feature is brilliant and really easy to do.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

This buggy made my life easier this summer by providing an extremely comfortable seat that seemed breathable for my son, and a large protective sunshade.  It was great.  The only thing that did not make my life easier was the lemon colour, this attracted a mass of bugs, wasps and flies.  I believe this colour should not be sold.  It lets down the buggy as its design apart from the colour is great.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

Apart from the lemon colour, I would only change two things about this product. Firstly I would change the price.  It is too expensive for most mums to spend on a lightweight.  I would not wish to spend £300 on one. Secondly, I would change the handle.  Although I like the twist feature, this part is quite large and as a small lady I feel as though my hands have to be very wide apart when pushing so that I'm not pushing the hard plastic centre.

Tested by mum Klare Ward for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

I would highly recommend this lightweight stroller over all others I have tested.  The design makes it extremely practical and has a really stylish look.   The best bits include: great value for money (it will last years), adjustable handle, large shopping basket, adjustable seat that lies almost flat, easy to use buttons and clips that mean adjustments can be made really  easily, a flip collapse, a carrying handle, a five point harness, great hood and rain cover, and big wheels unlike most lightweights.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

The Armadillo XT is the most practical lightweight buggy and makes life as a busy mum in a number of ways. The best ways include: the ease and speed at making adjustments to the seat or frame, the large wheels are durable and make it easy to mount curbs, the weather proofing elements are great whether it’s raining or sunny, and the large shopping baskets means I can carry enough bits for my children.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I would not change anything about this product.  I loved the yellow coloured hood, however so did the wasps, and we found them around us during every trip.  Perhaps send one of your other colours during testing next time as this put my husband off the buggy as a whole, however my review did not comment on this as I know that other colours are available.

Tested by mum Charli Fuller for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

Amazing!! Absolutely loved this stroller.  It has an ingenious fold flat capability and so many quick and easy adjustable elements, you can customise it to you and your baby in minutes.  The design is beautiful and sleek.  The frame is made of high quality and lightweight materials and the super soft seat padding just adds to the overall brilliant design. I would recommend this to fellow mums

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

The huge sunshade completely covers my baby when out and about, making life a lot easier, and curbing my sunburn concerns.   The fold flat feature is a great storage saver and it comes with a great handle that makes carrying and lifting it easier. The reclining seat is so simple to do unlike most other lightweight which you have to adjust straps with clips that hardly move. I feel more confident with this buggy due to its ease and have been shopping more often than normal.
