Mother&Baby Awards 2017 Gold Award

Luxuriously and good looking and with lots of practical features, the Vista pushchair was a winner with our testers. Good over a variety of terrains and easy to push too.

The Vista is amazingly practical for both city and country living with lots of useful features, from the freestanding fold to the ample storage space.

It’s compatible with Maxi-Cosi or BeSafe infant carrier car seats to form a travel system (sold separately). It’s a high quality model and our testers felt that the designers put a lot of thought into the practicalities and what busy modern parents need. For example, the handles are height adjustable and the shopping basket is particularly roomy.

Other plus points include the high seating position on the pushchair, which means it can double as a highchair when out and about and the fact it stands upright when folded. Although heavy, the Vista handles with incredible ease over all terrain and looks and feels expensive, too. The carrycot is suitable from birth and can even be used for overnight sleeping as it has a ventilated base and breathable mattress cover.

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

This travel system made me weep with happiness! Everything about it is so EASY! We managed to assemble it in the street (our hallway is too small for a pram) in about 5 minutes with no manual. I managed to fold it open with one hand with the baby in the other arm, with absolutely no swear words involved whatsoever (shouting and swearing is a regular occurrence with my current travel system!). It folds away nicely and can fit comfortably in a smaller car boot.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The storage space in the base is very generous.... I could fit two big bags and two sausage dogs in it with room to spare. It's so easy to open up and fold away and extremely easy to manoeuvre around supermarkets - I definitely noticed a reduction in the amount of dirty looks that I normally receive from fellow shoppers!

Would you choose this product to win?

I loved everything about this travel system. It's usability making it stand out from any other pushchair that I've tried. This was also the only travel system that made my baby boy actually STOP crying... This is normally unheard of! So I am now fully prepared to swap a kidney for this pushchair...

What changes would you make to this product?

I found the straps/harness a bit difficult to adjust and even once I had worked them out (I'm not one for reading instruction manuals) I still found that they were a bit loose and almost a bit pointless? I also think the whole thing is incredibly expensive, but that said, I do have a bit of a bee in my bonnet about the ridiculous costs attached to these things, and it's not actually the most expensive travel system on the market.

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

The Uppababy Vista is easy to put up and fold away. My boot is slightly too narrow to get it in, but I just pop a wheel off and it goes straight in! I love how easy it is to attach and detach various seats and parts (like the wheels!) It looks gorgeous. I love the design and there are so many colours to choose from. The fabric is very durable and robust. It looks so comfortable for the babies. The lining of the carry cot is gorgeous. I love how it can all strip back and go in the wash.

How did this product make your life easier?     

It's so easy to swap around the different parts so you can adapt to any situation really quickly. The biggest selling point for this pram though HAS the be the giant basket underneath. I've never seen one so big! At one point I had my changing bag, 4 bags of shopping and a load of loose items from other various shops! The carrier bag charge doesn't apply to me anymore...I have my Vista!!!!!

Would you choose this product to win?

The outstanding feature has to be the size of the basket while managing to keep the whole pram fairly compact and still very very stylish. Everything about it works. I felt very proud pushing this around...and I also felt very at ease. It made everything so much easier! I love it! 

What changes would you make to this product?

If there was a way to make the back slightly narrower, that would be good. The wheels do get caught on lots of things as you're going round! Also, the chassis is pretty heavy. It took a bit of effort lifting it in and out of the car. It would be good if it had a stand of some sort that held it upright once it had been folded down.

Tested by mum Jolene Culley for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I would definitely recommend this travel system to a fellow mum. I loved the large basket underneath for storage. The uv sunshield is a fantastic idea and gives peace of mind when out and about with the baby walking. I also loved the flap that opened at the back to look in and check on the baby when they are in a forward facing postion. It was easy to fold and and the fact the wheels come off so it folds smaller is ideal for space saving.

How did this product make your life easier?     

I think the fact there are so many options with this travel system including the double pushchair option makes life so much easier for busy mums. The multiple options allow you to keep 1 or 2 children happy whatever position they take and along with the other benefits makes a trip out simple and less stressful!

Would you choose this product to win?

The multiple options of this travel system make this product a winner. It offers more than other systems in the same price bracket. it has so many features, uv sun visor, large storage underneath, viewing window and the removable wheels which allow it to fold down smaller. The seat positions are very easy to move as is the height adjustable handle bar.

What changes would you make to this product?

The only thing I would change is the width of the second stage seat, I felt it was a little small and if you had a large toddler I think it could possibly be a tight squeeze and they may grow out of it sooner than recommended, which would leave you having to spend out on another pushchair to accomodate your child.

Tested by mum Jenny Heaselgrave for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

The winner with this pushchair is its ease of use and huge basket underneath that no other brand seems to rival. It has big sturdy wheels to ensure that the ride for baby is super smooth and it feels very light to push. The wheels can be easily spun off to get into the car with minimal effort. Lastly, the UV protector, which is built in, is a great bonus for ensuring little one is safe and comfortable on a sunny day.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The UV protector made my life easier as I did not feel the need to attach an additional parasol on a hot day. Also, folding up and down was very easy with this and I could attach my Maxi-Cosi car seat to it, so it saved me having to buy a car seat which was in line with a different brand of pushchair. Walking on rougher terrain seemed far easier and sturdier with this and baby slept more peacefully than with pushchairs with little wheels.

Would you choose this product to win?

The practicality of this pushchair means that it should win. It is good value for money and provides mother and baby with everything they need to be out and about. I prefer this to others for how it feels to push and how comfortable my baby was in this. The red colour was appealing to the eye and they come in a range of colours.

What changes would you make to this product?

Probably the design. Unlike other brands, this pushchair comes in very solid, almost basic colours. To appeal to more people, the design could be improved with more range of colours and collections. The pushchair I opted for was based on being a design conscious mom, but this has won me over on the practical aspects and if I were to choose again, this one would be my choice.

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

This pushchair is amazing!! I have bought and used many pushchairs and this has to be one of the best. Both quality and design is exceptional. All the fabrics are of beautiful quality and the frame is sturdy. When used as a tandem both seat units are plenty big with large suncovers to protect from the sun. I used the bottom seat unit with a 3 year old and even though there was a large amount of weight on the front it was still extremely easy to manoeuver with one hand. The basket underneath is one of the biggest I have ever seen on a pushchair.

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

This pushchair has made trips to the shops and family days out far easier as the seat units are able to easily take a 1 year old and 3 year old at the same time whilst still been easy to steer, The large basket allows us to take raincoats and picnics without having to carry on days out.

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

To make this item perfect I would like to see some sort of strap or handle to enable lifting into the car easier once folded.

Tested by mum Sarah Whitthread for the M&B Awards 2016:

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

Where to start? This is THE best double pushchair I have ever tried. The seats are large so both children have ample space to move around. The various foot positions is great. The seats are easy to recline and the transition from upright to reclined is very smooth so will not wake the child if they have fallen asleep. Also the large hood protects from the sun. The peep hole in the hood is magnetic so easy to lift to make sure baby/child is ok without waking them as most have noisy velcro. The pushchair is on the larger size but still fits through most doors with ease. The carrycot has been great for my little baby as it doubles up as a bassinet in the home or when out visiting. The inserts are easily removed for washing. What I also love is that my car seat can attach to the top of the frame leaving my older child riding at the bottom facing outwards.

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

One pushchair is suitable from birth and then can be adjusted and other bits bought to adapt to 2 children

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

To be able to close with 2 units in place would save so much time.

Tested by mum Charlotte Floate for the M&B Awards 2016:

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

Great pushchair that can be used while shopping or out and about or one child or as a double pushchair. I love all the different combinations that can be used such as car seat with seat unit, carrycot with seat unit or 2 seat units. The pushchair is easy to push and navigate through the shops with minimal effort. The handle is easy to raise and lower with a simple press of the button. The brake is easy to apply when needed. The tyres are easy to remove for cleaning off mud. The seats are easy to clean which is very important with little sticky fingers. The chasis is easy to collapse and is fairly compact once this is done.

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

Great multi functional pushchair which can be used in every scenario.

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