Would you recommend this to other mums?    

This pushchair surprised me in a number of ways. First of all it is a lot lighter than it looks. It is easy to collapse and folds up into a very small compact unit which is easy to lift and fit into the boot of the car - particularly useful if you have a small boot or have lots of things to carry around in the car.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The fact that everything on this chair is adjustable is a big bonus meaning that you can adjust everything to fit your child and also yourself. With both the footrest and the backrest being adjustable your child / baby will always be comfortable. Additionally, the handlebar is adjustable so that the parent is comfortable and in control of the chair.

Would you choose this product to win?

There was nothing about the ABC Design Mamba Plus Street that I could really find fault with. The ride was very comfortable both on the smooth pavements and also on the rough paths in the woods. Due to the adjustable handlebar you always feel in control of the pushchair and this makes it easy to control and manoeuvre. The addition of a good quality, easy to apply brake meant that I felt extremely safe and confident with this pushchair.

What changes would you make to this product?

Although there is a large basket underneath the pushchair, the access to it is not always easy depending on the set up of the pushchair. The wheels at the back are quite wide apart and so getting through narrow doorways can be a bit tricky - although the ease of handling of the pushchair due to the adjustable handlebars counter this.

I loved the ABC Design Mamba Plus Street. It seemed huge but for all the right reasons. The carry cot was so big you could still use this for a 4 month old baby when sleeping. The colour of it was lovely and the leather details where great too. It folds down really well, is well built, and is lovely to push. It felt very comfy in there.

How did this product make your life easier?     

I think the pram and pushchair part when on the main frame felt high so you didn't have to bend down into it to get a child in and out. On both parts you could use it with the zips down and extend the hood on hotter days. It also came with a net to pop over it when using it on hot days also.

What changes would you make to this product?

The bar across the middle of the basket was a bit of a issue when buying the larger items at a supermarket. But personally there's nothing else I’d change about the ABC Design Mamba Plus Street. 

Tested by mum Katheryn Dragffy - Brown for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would definitely recommend the ABC Design Mamba Plus Street to a friend/fellow mum because it is very well designed, it is sleek and stylish. A Strong and solid pushchair. It is very easy to assemble and fold down. The handle is height adjustable which helps people of different heights. The material is very soft so makes it very comfortable for a child to ride in.    

How did this product make your life easier?     

The ABC Design Mamba Plus Street helped make my life easier as we enjoy walking, so this pushchair is small enough to be folded up and transported in a car. It pushes great on solid ground and also terrain ground. I liked the fact that you could put the brake on at the handle bar, so you are not looking for the foot brake.

Would you choose this product to win?

It looks sleek and stylish. It has a sun protection UPF of 50+. It is very easy to push on either smooth or terrain ground. It is forward or world facing which is good for an older toddler. It is very light, and it can be stored and transported very easily. I like the how the buckle can be stored away in a little pouch so the child can't loosen the straps and climb out.

What changes would you make to this product?

The thing I would change about this pushchair is make the shopping basket a little taller. I found that it could only hold 2 bags of shopping and if bags were full, going up a high curb you may lose something. I couldn't find any more faults with this pushchair. 

Tested by mum Lindsay James for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I would recommend the ABC Design Mamba Plus Street to a friend because it looks great and looks amazing and well designed. It's also easy to push around and even with loads of shopping and stuff on it was very light to push. It fitted nicely in my car and could fit more things around it. It took me a while to put it up and down but as soon as figured it out I was fine with it. 

How did this product make your life easier?     

This pram could fit a lot shopping and everything I needed to underneath it which was great as that was usally my biggest problem with finding a pram. It was very light to push on and off road. The rain cover was easy to get on and off and fold back away easily, and I had no problems changing the position of the seats.

Would you choose this product to win?

It’s a great looking pram, very light to push and good storage, but it took me a little longer to fold it down and put it up. But once I got the hang of it I found it a bit better, it just took me a lot longer than some others.

What changes would you make to this product?

I would change how it folds. 

Tested by mum Hannah Britton for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

This product is so worth the money. I would recommend it as being one of the most comfortable prams, it has memory foam and extra padding for the baby’s head. It's easy to change from rear facing to forward facing. It has a large shopping basket, for all the extra we mums need to carry! The handle is very comfy.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The comfort for my child was great, she felt safe and secure and easily fell asleep! Having a comfy handle was great for long distance walks. The large shopping basket underneath was more than enough space. Having UPF 50+ sun visor to protect my child from the sun. Having a viewing window for parents while have the protector over meant I could ensure my child was OK.

Would you choose this product to win?

The fact the designer has thought so much about the child comfort, having memory foam and extra padding for the child's head, i personally believe this product should win! To a parent who wants the child to be comfortable at all times this is the pram. The colour or pattern is not important when you know the efforts that has been put into this pram.

What changes would you make to this product?

I don't like the different colour in the handle and it looks about out of place! Also having a better range of colours to choose from. Although with this pram it isn't important about colour as it has so many other pros as to why this pram is the best for your baby! Also the price is slightly too steep, although you get what you pay for!
