The Monday Review – Mamas & Papas Cruise Buggy

When we got a chance to review a buggy for Living with Kids, we were over the moon.

Our old £8 carboot buggy, whilst serving a purpose, had pretty much reached the end of its days.

The Mamas & Papas Cruise, is a light weight pushchair.  It’s four-wheeled, with two handles.  Sounds simple, but two things that the seasoned buggy user may solely base their decision on – the four wheels swivel making pushing easy work, and the two handles make it easy to hang shopping bags.

The first plus point, on getting it out of the box, I managed to put it up, figure out how it worked and get going without the instruction book.  A huge bonus in my eyes, I hate reading instructions.

The is quite a long strap hanging down at the back of the buggy which was annoying me, but I think it’s a carry strap, which is good for getting it in and out of the car and avoid dirty wheels scuffing my ankles.

We took it for a real test when we were visiting family in Stoke a few weeks ago; a woodland walk in the Staffordshire hills while visiting family.  I was a bit worried that the wheels were too small to cope with the really rocky and rooty tracks, but it was great.  And it made it over several gates and stiles.   A chance for the boys to flex their muscles, before I stepped in and stole the glory on the second hurdle, piece of cake.

After about an hour of our two-hour hike (rewarded with tea and chocolate cake), the bear fell asleep and had a good power nap in the pushchair.  Another plus point.

All in all we’re really happy with the M&P Cruise.  It’s light, it’s purple rather than blue (blue can get a little boring), it’s turns round corners easily, and has a nice big shopping basket at the bottom.  All the essentials.

Mamas & Papas Cruise. Currently £100.80 reduced from £140.00
