At a glance:

This one-of-a-kind travel system has a different setting for every age of your baby. You can feel assured that your youngster will always ride in comfort. This combo comes with the Hux Carrycot and the Maxi-Cosi Pebble Plus, a baby car seat that offers optimal comfort and security while you're on the move. 

How did this product make your life easier?

Jennifer: This product makes my life easier as a mum because the basket underneath the pram is very large and allows plenty of room for shopping and changing bag and handbag etc. This is definitely the best thing about the product. The car seat is nice and light and makes transfer into and out of the car easy.

Elizabeth: I love how simply this converts into a double pram. I must admit I didn't realise at first and couldn't work out what all the extra adaptors were for but when I realised and worked it all out, I was very impressed. The different combinations of the car seat/toddler seat/carrycot are great and would allow easy getting about with two children. I also loved the position of the buggy board extra that you could purchase.

Lydia: I felt that this buggy was very sturdy and I was confident using it both on main roads and cross country. It had a big frame and chunky wheels and felt easy to steer. My favourite feature was the large shopping basket, which made it very convenient when going food shopping or out and about in town.

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Sara: I would recommend this product to a friend/fellow parent if they were expecting twins or planning to have siblings close in age. The product seems to mainly be designed with this in mind and otherwise, I would say is too big for day to day use with one child. I would recommend the product if you needed to carry a lot of shopping in the basket because it is huge, however, you’re unlikely to be able to fit down the aisles of many shops. The seat on the pram is excellent and my little girl was very comfortable. It is quite high so she enjoyed having an excellent view of the world.

Claudia: The basket definitely! It would be great for someone who didn't drive as you can store so much in it whilst still remaining really light to push. The seat unit is a really good size and I think it would last well into toddlerhood. I also like that you can convert it to a double at a later date should you need, so that you wouldn't need to get a whole new buggy. It is easy to fold and take apart. I got caught in the rain with the toddler and baby so was very grateful for that! 

Would you choose this product to win?

Sammie: I liked this pushchair for its length as a double it was much easier to fit in and around shops than my current double which is side by side. However, I didn’t like the complexity of this pushchair. Perhaps in time, it would become second nature but I found the different attachments to different areas off-putting and the instructions didn’t make it much easier. I think based on that if I had seen it in a shop I wouldn’t continue to consider it.

Michelle: I love the fact that it can be single or double, so that definitely makes it stand out. It is comfy to push, it has a big basket and it has a lovely carrycot. That said, the initial RRP seems expensive, which is why I am not sure I would consider it. Although, the more you think about it, and the fact it can be a single or double, the more attractive it is for the price. I didn't love the instruction manual and that there were no words! It wasn't always obvious from the pictures what exactly had to be done. The assembly wasn't the easiest with lots of pieces and lots of plastic.

Holly: Again as a double buggy I would. It is brilliant as a double buggy as there are so many arrangement options on it. It also comes with all the adaptors for the carrycot and car seat. I do think that as a double travel buggy, it is very good value for money. As a single buggy, I feel it is very pricey for a travel system and way too bulky.

What changes would you make to this product?

Nikki: The design of the system in terms of putting it up and down needs simplifying. It is big and bulky and not good for many car boots. It is complicated to put together and change from one system to the next. It isn't quick for a busy mum putting in and out of the car. For someone city or town based, it is excellent. It's good for shopping, nipping in and out of crowds and the basket is an excellent size. This travel system would be great for someone who doesn’t have or need a car very often.

Elizabeth: It would be great to be able to have it as a double with the carrycot in use and still be able to use the basket. I wonder if there is a way of achieving this in this design of buggy. Maybe sitting the carrycot higher somehow? It's just a shame the carrycot fills the basket. Also, compared to others that I have held, the car seat feels very heavy in comparison and not as lightweight as others. I would have also put a window in the canopy so the baby/toddler can be seen when facing away.

Michelle: An instruction manual with words as well as pictures. Maybe that is just my personal preference. So perhaps there could be two manuals. I also found it difficult to take the hood off the toddler seat and it took both myself and husband to do this! I'm not sure whether it is stiff, or we just weren't quite doing it correctly.
