Mamas & Papas Armadillo City
This photoset is of the Mamas and Papas Armadillo City in Lemon Drop.
The Armadillo City seat is a padded hard base – solid unlike a lot of other pushchairs – more like a ledge that the child sits on. It is similar to the Nuna Pepp seat. The seat is lie flat, thus is suitable from birth. However, not that unlike its bigger brother, the Armadillo, there is no leg support for an older sleeping child.
The Armadillo City hood has SPF 50+ rating. There is a toy loop on the front of the hood.
The basket sides are mesh and can be easily moved or stretched to put items in and out.
The harness has lots of adjustability. We liked how, when we realised the harness was too loose on our 7 month old (70cms), we could pull the harness tighter and pop the white retainers into a higher socket to make the harness shorter.
The harness is a 5 piece harness. Unlike the Armadillo which we reviewed, this harness clicks together to stay (most of the time) as a 3 point harness. This makes it easier to do the harness up. However, it will come apart which is annoying. The WHOLE of the harness pieces need to be pushed into the buckle. This is very chunky and large in your hand. Considerable force is required to close the buckle. It could be very difficult for some.
The fold is a 2 step fold – first slide the button on the handle bar, then rotate the barrel downwards. Push the upper half of the pushchair forwards. Then pull the handle. The pushchair will fold and autolock. It sounds complicated but it is quick. Opening the pushchair is easy – undo the fold lock and flick the wheels out whilst pulling the handle up.
We liked the little stoppers on the pushchair to stop the paint getting scratched when the Armadillo City is placed on the ground.
The Mamas & Papas Armadillo City is easy to carry using the carrying handle.
