B.O.B. Revolution CE v’s Out ‘n’ About Nipper V2
This photoset shows the B.O.B. Revolution CE (Plum, on the left) side by side with the Out ‘n’ About Nipper (Black, on right).
These photos are to give an idea of the size and main features of both pushchairs. For more detailed reviews of each please look under the “Single Pushchairs” section here on Best Buggy.
There is quite a price difference between these pushchairs with the Nipper being cheaper than the B.O.B. Revolution CE. The Nipper comes with a raincover, but no basket. The B.O.B. comes with a basket but no raincover.
The Nipper is suitable from birth. The B.O.B. is suitable from 6 months old. However, both pushchairs have carrycot and travel system options.
There is quite a big difference in the size of the seat, as seen in the photos with the children in the seats. The children are our 4 years and 6 months old (107cms tall, 91st centile) girl and our 2 year 9 month old (87.5cms, 9th centile) boy. However our eldest enjoys riding in the Nipper and says its comfy, plus the Nipper will easily last any child to the end of their pushchair days. The harnesses fit both children well. We love the quick tighten system on the B.O.B. (the red loops on the harness).
The Nipper has a single toggle recline; the B.O.B. has a double toggle recline.
The B.O.B. hood is huge but the Nipper hood also offers good shade.
Both pushchairs have good storage. The Nipper does not come with the basket as standard, but there is a large drawstring pocket on the rear of the pushchair plus storage pockets on both sides of the hood. The Nipper basket is quite hard to access – we can’t get a bag underneath without undoing the sides. The B.O.B. comes with a good sized basket, a mesh pocket on the rear of the seat and two mesh pockets inside the seat for drinks, snacks or toys.
Both pushchairs have foam covered handlebars. The Nipper handlebar is adjustable. The B.O.B. handlebar is fixed. It is perfect for me at 5ft 6ins tall, but Mr BB who is nearly 6ft finds it too low.
Both pushchairs have air tyres. Both pushchairs have lockable, swivel wheels. The B.O.B. front wheel locks in front; the Nipper front wheel locks underneath the pushchair. The B.O.B. has tracking on the front wheel. The wheels release in a similar way on both pushchairs. The rear wheels are easy to remove. The front wheels take a few moments to do.
Both pushchairs have a footbrake which is easy to apply and release.
B.O.B. has adjustable suspension for children of different weights.
The B.O.B. is a trifold pushchair – the top half is released by 2 side catches and then it folds over. Then a red handle is pulled underneath the pushchair and the B.O.B. simply folds. B.O.B. is quick and easy to fold. The Nipper takes longer to fold as there are 2 catches to undo, and a pin to remove before the fold can begin. Equally the catches and pin need fixing when the Nipper is opened, before use.
Both pushchairs are excellent to use and push. We would recommend both.
