What they say:

“Travel system ready, the unbelievably compact Armadillo Flip XT is the only stroller parents will ever need. The chunky wheels have extra grip to ensure babies enjoy a super smooth ride - even on difficult terrain - and the telescopic handle makes steering comfortable for parents whatever their height. The revolutionary Armadillo Flip XT has an innovative patented design, letting you fold it down with one hand in a matter of seconds - whatever way the seat is facing. Carry cot and car seat compatible, it also offers the most compact 'travel system-ready' design on the market.”

Would you recommend the Armadillo Flip XT to other mums?    

This product is a must buy! I loved the Armadillo Flip XT and would recommend to other mummies! The design is beautiful and feels incredible. My child enjoyed this item, more than any other (definitely mummy's girl). This is the fashion icon every mummy needs! My child was so comfy travelling in this pram, she screamed when he had to get her out.

How did this product make your life easier?     

There is enough room underneath the pram so I didn't need to juggle shopping! Also having room on the back for a buggy board helped with having other children. How small the pram went made it easier to get it in the boot and still had plenty of room for other items. The comfort for my child was incredible and easy to adjust to lie them down slightly.

The choice of patterns or colours is amazing, it's great for parents to choose the ideal pram for their little ones. The items that come with it will ensure you have everything you need or want. The structure is strong and doesn't feel as if it's going to break. The Armadillo Flip XT is by far the best I have ever used!

What changes would you make to this product?

There is little I would want to change on this pram. Although the price may be to much for some to pay, it's the pram you want you will pay for it! The wheels on the front could be slightly bigger as on some pavements I felt like it might tip forward. I didn't like the different colour on the handles.

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I have enjoyed using the Armadillo Flip XT. I would recommend it to a friend, as I find it easy to use and pushes well and is quite user friendly. 

How did this product make your life easier?     

It's got a very stylish design. Easy to fold and pop up, it stores well and fits in a small car boot space, good fabric that would be easy to clean. Good brakes and a easy push, comfort wise my children looked snug and happy. 

What changes would you make to this product?

I wouldn't change anything as it’s a lovely design.

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I really loved the Armadillo Flip XT overall as felt it came with everything needed; it arrived with the carry cot, car seat and the main pram part. It was built really well and didn't have a plastic feel to it at all. I really liked the colour of the design. I felt it folded down well for the car and bus and was also nice to push around shops and stores.

How did this product make your life easier?     

For me it was everything I’d expect from a pram and look for when buying one. I like how easy it is to fold and unfold and also how easy it is to have it in car seat and carry cot mode. The design was really bright and nicely patterned. Really liked this pram and I would recommend it to a friend or family member.

Would you choose this product to win?

I really liked the design, it was a break away from the usual black or grey prams you see around. It’s very nice to push and doesn't feel heavy at all. I also feel this came with everything needed as it arrived with a carry cot and car seat.

What changes would you make to this product?

I’d like to see a bigger basket on it for shopping. Also the wheels at the front of the pram where very small and back ones larger, this caused a bit of struggle when going up and down kerbs (I had to turn around and come off back wards) but other then this I really like it.

The biggest selling point for the Armadillo Flip XT is this ease of which it collapses. With a bit of practice this chair can be folded using just one hand making it quick and easy to fold away when your child is tired after a long walk in the park. I was also pleasantly surprised at how small it folded meaning it easily fitted into the boot of the car.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The lightweight nature of the chair makes it easy to handle and manoeuvre both with and without a child inside it. It can easily be controlled just using one hand. The steering is very responsive and you always feel in control with the chair. The wheels are sturdy and can cope with all sorts of terrain but they are also soft enough to allow a comfortable ride as well.

Would you choose this product to win?

In a very competitive market I do not feel the Armadillo Flip XT stands out enough to warrant the asking price that it is priced at. The chair is good and very useable and elegant looking but I was not as keen on the actual seat or the nature of the basket underneath the chair compared to other models.

What changes would you make to this product?

I would change the way in which the chair is adjusted. I like the idea that the position of the chair can be changed and placed in a number of positions but I was not 100% comfortable with the mechanism used for this and found that it had a habit of moving without being touched. This is a little bit concerning when you first witness it and feel adjustments could be made in this area.

Tested by mum Christina Tingle for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I would recommend this if a friend or family member needed a small pushchair for going on holiday. I found this pram very lightweight and easy to transport around. It folded very flat. The covers were easy to take off to clean and wash. 

How did this product make your life easier?     

I’d say it was easier due to the fact I could get around the shops easier as the pram is very small and lightweight so it was easy to get around. It was easy to take down to put in the car or on to a bus.Folded flat for storage and wasn't too bulky. It was a very plain design and nothing new or different.

Would you choose this product to win?

I would choose this product if I was going on holiday or needed a second pram for use in a car or for a stroller. I did like the Armadillo Flip XT but the seating bit was too small and i felt my child wasn't very comfy at times.

What changes would you make to this product?

I would like to see a bigger seating unit.
