2014 – Shortlisted for 'Best Travel Stystem' Award!
Orbit Baby’s G2 Bundle is a contemporary travel system that’s comfortable and spacious. The pushchair collapses easily and has good suspension, manoeuvring well over all types of terrain. The 360 rotate functionality is great as is the one-hand recline feature. The sun canopy is large and the pushchair includes a carrycot, rain cover, snack tray, an adjustable foot rest, adjustable handlebars and a cargo pod that also comes in handy as a changing bag.
However, the pushchair, along with the entire travel system, is bulky (taking up a lot of boot space) and quite heavy. It’s cumbersome in busy shops and is not ideal on public transport but the system is well-built and sturdy. It's also environmentally friendly, with organic fabric used in promotion of a green living ethic.
It’s an expensive product but is innovative, solid and stylish – if you have the budget, a worthwhile spend.
Strikingly futuristic and with several unusual features, the Orbit is unlike any other pushchair on the market. It’s striking looks divided testers’ opinions, though, with our mums and dads either loving or hating the design.
Innovative and eye-catching with space age looks, the Orbit is packed with unusual features such as a shopping basket that transforms into a shoulder bag and a clever rotating seat.
It comes with a rocking stand so the carrycot can be used instead of a moses basket and there’s also the option of adding a car seat (sold separately). Both babies and toddlers seemed very comfortable in it and the pushchair has a central swivel mechanism that allows you to position the seat so it can be forward or parent -facing. The Orbit works well for an urban lifestyle, but while some testers loved its futuristic design, others loathed it. It’s a shame, too, that you have to buy the fabric pack separately, which adds to the cost. Overall it represents a solid, although expensive, choice.
