At a glance:

The new Maxi Cosi Adorran super compact and lightweight pushchair is an urban wonder, with best-in-class comfort for baby and ease of use for parents. Baby stays wrapped up comfortably whilst you easily navigate the suburbs and city. The Maxi Cosi Adorra pushchair is the complete package from birth to roughly 3.5 years old. It is a lie-flat pushchair when used with the included seat and therefore suitable from birth without the need for an additional carrycot. 

How did this product make your life easier?

Sarah: I found the Maxi Cosi Adorra particularly good to use as it was so easy to push. It’s large solid PVA treaded wheels give good grip and good manoeuvrability around town. When you are needing to fold it down and store it either at home or in a restaurant or coffee shop, it folds down easily to a small size, standing by itself.

Holly: The buggy is very easy to put up and down and is very compact with a carry handle when folded so I can discreetly leave in in the corner of a living room or in the boot of my car I think it could even fit in my old car boot whereas my current buggy can't. It is also very easy to use with the handle height being adjustable as I am only 5 ft and my husband is 6ft.

Laura: The Adorra makes trips with a toddler a breeze. It is lightweight and handles easily around town. The easy fold and compact size means it is easy to carry when not in use and pops into the car when leaving the house. The supersize shopping basket fits your purchases comfortably alongside the usual bag of toddler paraphernalia you have to cart around everywhere! The pushchair is easy to manoeuvre with one hand if your little one fancies a walk too.

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Elizabeth: Yes absolutely! There were several things that I absolutely loved about this pushchair. It's very easy to put up and down and I loved that the handle to do that then became the carry handle-brilliant! The brake was obvious and easy to use - a very important feature for obvious reasons. It manoeuvred smoothly and effortlessly which was refreshing as some pushchairs and prams can feel heavy to turn.

Jessica: I would recommend the Maxi-Cosi Adorra to a fellow mum or friend as it is a good quality pushchair at a reasonable price. It is easy to set up straight out of the box and can be used from birth without needing to purchase any additional accessories. Furthermore, the seat unit is suitable up to the age of approximately 3 1/2, although we did get a 4-year-old comfortably into the seat unit.

Michelle: I would recommend this because of the above; the ease of putting it up and down, the size when folded and the large basket. From a design point of view, I liked the colours and the two-tone effect, something I've not really seen before. The brake was easy to use, which is something I'd look for now. My 19-month-old son was comfortable in this and seemed at a great height. I liked the mesh window in the canopy and this is something I'd always pick on my chosen pram/pushchair.

Would you choose this product to win?

Sammie: I would choose this product all for its ease of use. It’s visually a very nice pushchair appealing to the eye and the quality is very good. The pushchair has good extra space. I like the extending hoods and having the mesh so you can see into the baby while the hood is up. It’s by far one of the easiest to collapse and put up pushchairs I have seen.

Carole: In terms of choosing the maxi Cosi Adorra over any of its competitors, I think the features it offers, including the fact that it comes with the car seat adaptors, the quality of it as well as the price it is available for makes it a very difficult pushchair to find one that does better. I would choose this over other pushchairs on the market.

Sarah: I would not personally choose the Maxi Cosi Adorra over other pushchairs on the market. While it is the high quality I personally feel the design is understated and therefore a little boring. I would rather have more pretty design features, which could include more vibrant colours or fabric options with patterns.

What changes would you make to this product?

Jessica: If I could change one thing about the Maxi-Cosi Adorra, I would like the fold set up to be reconsidered. The fold is easy to do once you have the knack of it, however, for me, there are two issues. Firstly when folded with the seat unit in place it is quite tall, secondly to stand it up you have to stand it on the handle which means the handle gets dirty and damaged.

Holly: The pricing is the only thing I would change. I love the buggy itself but not the price. The buggy itself retails for just under £400, you do get a rain cover and car seat adaptors with it. You can purchase a travel system for the same price. If you wanted this a travel system then you would have to buy the car seat and carrycot separately which both cost at least £150 each so once you have bought everything else that goes with it it becomes expensive.

Laura: I kept catching the brake with my foot as I walked which was annoying despite the brake being very easy to use with a clear click when applied correctly. Perhaps it is just me but I also found the folding of the pushchair quite fiddly and would be reluctant to carry it about when folded as the muddy/dirty wheels could hit clothes and the handle could hit the floor.
