Kiddy City ‘n Move Review by Sarah
I have been using the Kiddy City ‘n Move for a couple of months, with my now 9 month old daughter. I needed an easy to put up, umbrella fold buggy for dashing around on the school run, and this buggy certainly proved to do the job.
The Kiddy City ‘n Move takes no time to grab out of the car and put up and the seat is nice and comfortable for my little one. Similarly, folding it up again is simple once the initial stiffness when it is new wears off. The straps are perfectly adjusted around her and nicely padded for extra comfort. She has plenty of leg room, in fact the buggy overall is quite spacious inside. There is plenty of growing room in this stroller and I could see how it would last until she was much bigger. The handle height is great and suits both myself and my partner and it is not too heavy to push. It has a really good sized shopping basket, perfect for bundling blankets underneath and more. The rain hood fits on nicely and is quick to put on in a hurry, as it slots straight over the buggy handles. I also liked the bumper bar which proved to be a nice arm rest for my little one and has the added feature of lifting all the way up which is great for when you are getting your child in and out.
The car seat for this system is not too bulky and is lightweight and I like the way the handle slides all the way back for ease when getting your child in and out.
The size when folded – I have a Golf and it only just fits in the boot, although in my husbands’ Astra it fitted in no problem. I think you may struggle if you have a smaller car.
I thought that the buggy lacked a bit of suspension and could be a bit of a bumpy ride over rougher surfaces, I suppose it depends where you are using it.
I also had a problem with clicking the seat back into upright position from reclined. One side just didn’t seem to lock into place. Also the seat does not lie completely flat like some other strollers from birth, although I have to say, this didn’t bother my little one at all and she still napped quite comfortably.
As far as using it as a travel system, I found attaching the adaptors for the car seat onto the buggy frame too awkward so gave this feature a miss.
Overall though, I really like this buggy. There are plenty of great features and I think it feels sturdy and decent quality. It took no time at all to get used to and my little one was happy and comfortable being pushed around in it. I would certainly recommend it.
