Nuna TRIV at a glance:

This fully-featured compact pushchair is perfect for city living or jet-setting travellers. TRIV™ is cleverly designed with a seat that can face both ways and fold both ways, and can easily convert to a travel system. The ring adaptor can even fold with the frame, creating the perfect sidekick to your everyday adventures. For a quick trip to the corner store or getting across town, TRIV packs up quickly, folds with one hand and stands on its own, keeping your busy hands free. Proof that great things can come in small packages.

We spoke to these real parent testers to get their review...

How did this product make your life easier?

Lauren Barnfield says: A toddler who likes to drag their feet along the floor whilst in their stroller makes for a pretty stressful shopping trip and this stroller was high up enough that they weren’t able to do that which made things a lot easier. I found that I could make a clear distinction of “in or out” with this stroller which he accepted and relaxed rather than constantly trying to climb in and out because he was so close to the floor. I was able to push it with one hand as well which meant I could have a drink/make a call if needed.

Sarah Carr says: It is very stylish and has a huge basket which is easy to access. It is very comfortable to push on the flat and my daughter was very comfy. The seat can be parent or rear facing and changes over very easily. The rain cover is easy to uae and has vents. The canopy has good options for different positions as does the seat and footrest. Very easy to fold and handle to lift it in and out of the car.

Jennie Corrie says: This product made my life easier as a mum because the compact design with multiple configurations allowed me to adjust the seat to my needs at any given time. My son is above the 99th centile for both weight and height and this seat was plenty big enough for him and still had growing room! The extension on the handle bar was extremely generous so was comfortable to push for both myself and my husband.

Would you recommend this product to other parents?

Jennifer Crag says: The buggy is super quick and easy to fold down and set back up. It folds nice and small so is easy to transport and my both my daughter (one year) and son (two years) have travelled comfortably in it. The handle adjusts to a lovely high height which is great for me as I’m 6ft but has also been used comfortably by my mother in law who is much shorter.

Amy Farrelly says: The design and look of this pushchair was great, the fabric was high quality and my toddler was super comfy in it. It looks really smart - more like a pram quality than a standard pushchair. I also really liked the foldability and compactness when it was folded and how easy it was to fit into a small space, saving tons of room in your car/home/out and about so I'd highly recommend this product if you're a big traveller/city dweller as the space saving is excellent.

Mollie Fawcett says: No, it's a lovely pushchair but it's too hard to push and get up on the pavements etc. I live in the countryside so go on a lot of country walks and the pushchair isn't compatible with the countryside. The suspension on the front wheels is awful and it's really hard to get the buggy up on the pavements and over rocks or even an uneven road surface. The buggy does look very comfy for a child to sit in and the design is sleek so I would recommend if the front wheels were different. The colour is lovely we have the black and it's so stylish.

Would you choose this product above all others on the market?

Jo Meningen says: Generally, I think this is a great push chair. The main reason why I wouldn't necessarilly chose this to win would be the price point. It has some great features but I would say that there are competitors on the market which offer a similar standard of feature at a lower price. However, I do believe this has a superior design, look and feel.

Rachel Phillips says: I think this is a reasonably priced 'out and about' buggy. It's very straightforward to use and easy to manoeuvre (I used it one handed while walking my dog). I also liked that the buggy seat can face forward or backwards and can be changed mid journey with a toddler sitting in it (tried and tested).

Nicola Procter says: I wouldn't choose this product over all others on the market, mostly due to the weight of the pushchair. The pushchair is quite a lot heavier than our city mini runner which makes it a lot more difficult to get in and out of the car or house. It is also considerably more expensive than the city mini and although more stylish, I don't think it justifies the additional amount. Wheels also caught on kerbs quite often.

What changes would you make to this product?

Kim Sewell says: I would have to change the flimsiness of the handle when extended. It just didn't feel safe when getting it up and down kerbs as there seemed to be a fair bit of movement in the handle. the frame is obviously very thin to make it such a lightweight pushchair but it just felt like it needed to be much sturdier especially when pushing a toddler around.

Katherine White says: My only niggle was curbs, it just seemed to struggle with them (although to be fair its billed as a city pram so you cant expect it to be all terrain) I had to really tip it back to get it up curbs which was annoying as it meant shopping rolled about and my little one did t like it, it's not a massive issue but just slightly bigger front wheels would probably solve it, for the price I'd expect it to handle a tiny bump with ease.

Mollie Fawcett says: I would definitely change the wheels, I don't know if it's the suspension or what it is but it's just so hard to get the buggy up the pavement. I took the pushchair to our local forestry commision park and I couldn't get it over a few stoney areas which normal pushchairs would have no issue with. The wheels also lock sometimes which is a massive pain when you are walking and then they lock and you are ground to a halt.
