My name is Lily-Sue, but my mummy calls me Munchkin (or 'Munch' for short!) I am 8 years old, and this is where my mummy will help me write all about all the fun things we do together. I hope you enjoy reading about the adventures of my mummy and me, Munchkin, with the occasional appearance from the siblings - Beastie and Plumlet.

The Baby Weavers Jet stroller Review - Kiddicare

Some of you may remember that, just before Christmas, we were invited to (and attended) a special 'Blogger gathering' to celebrate the opening of the brand new Kiddicare superstore at Lakeside, Thurrock. Any of you that read our review will know that we were immensely impressed with everything about the store and were excited about what the future held for the store. We have visited the store a number of times since, and our reasons for visiting ranged from wanting to purchase something specific to meeting up with friends for a coffee and a chat and so that the kids could play in the designated areas (although they did plenty of 'playing' in the not so designated areas too!)

Very shortly after our visit, I was delighted to be invited to be a Kiddicare Blogger and was offered the fantastic opportunity to review one of their own wonderful products - the Baby Weavers Jet Stroller.

Baby Weavers is a brand exclusive to Kiddicare and the range consists of more than just pushchairs. Baby Weavers have created beautiful nursery furniture, car seats, highchairs, baby swings, and much more. This here was our chance to test out this lovely, lightweight, umbrella fold stroller and to add a touch of colour to Beastie's ride!

Initially, we were given the choice of 5 different, attractive colour schemes:

Munchkin helped me with this decision as I was having difficulty choosing! Of course, she was going to go for pink! Munchkin always chooses pink! So the decision was made, and we ordered our Baby Weavers Jet in Nelly Pink!

When it arrived, I was really surprised at how small and compact the box was.

It was very clear to see from the details on the box, a description of its contents and key features. The pushchair was simple to assemble and was ready for use within minutes.

This lightweight, umbrella fold stroller is simple to open, by releasing a catch on the side of the frame and allowing the front wheels of the pushchair to 'fall' forward. Pretty standard for an umbrella fold design! The mechanism clicks into place easily, and the pushchair is ready to use!

Next job ... To take our new pushchair out for a spin! And what better place to take it ...?

Outside Kiddicare, Lakeside
The first time we took it out, it was a really bright, sunny day, and we therefore made good use of the fair sized hood. Beastie loves the hood. A number of times, I have found her sitting back whilst staring at and 'chatting' to the attractive pattern on the inside of the hood!

Beastie is extremely comfortable in the Jet. The seat is very substantial and comfortable, with a fully reclining backrest. As a result of this, the Baby Weavers Jet is suitable for babies from Birth to around 3 years (15kg) Beastie will often nap in the pushchair when we are out and about, so a reclining backrest is very important to us. And the Jet reclines a generous amount, allowing a comfortable sleeping position for baby. I am confident that her back and neck are sufficiently supported whilst she is napping.

Beastie in the reclined Jet
Beastie is 8 months old now, and therefore she is a huge fan of looking around and taking in everything that is going on around her. This is the first forward-facing pushchair that she has experienced, and it is safe to say that as she was placed in the stroller in its upright position, she was very excited! The 5-point harness seems comfortable and is fully adjustable, and comes complete with cushioned strap covers that match the fabric inside the stroller hood. The harness holds Beastie firmly and comfortably in place. If she is not sitting right back in the seat, it can sometimes be quite tricky to fasten the staps as she ends up sitting on half of the strap that passes between her legs, but at least this means that she is sitting straight before I set off with her in the stroller. 

Beastie upright in the Jet
The Jet is lovely and open, making it easy for Beastie to look around when we are out, making her a much happier baby when we are out. 

The Baby Weavers Jet has a kick down style brake system which is secure on the steepest of hills! It is simple to activate and release the brake, which is great for us as I use a lot of public transport and when I am having to manoeuvre the stroller into a small space on the bus or the train and apply the brake, I can usually do so easily.

Whilst I am on the subject of public transport, the Jet has been a great stroller to use all round when I am out and about with the girls. The separate handles and swivel front wheels, combined with the light weight of the stroller make it easy to navigate through busy towns and rush hour underground stations. And as it is nice and compact in size, I never feel as though I am taking up an unreasonable amount of space on the bus or train.

Close up of the shopping basket
Then there is the shopping basket. This is another important feature for us, as I am out and about quite a lot with both Munchkin and Beastie by myself, so having a spacious shopping basket means that I can keep my hands free to keep Munchkin close and Beastie happy! Although I wouldn't risk putting anything too heavy in the basket, as it is a netted basket and wouldn't withstand a great deal of weight, but it is perfectly substantial enough for any trip you would expect from a good stroller!

As well as the fantastic practical and functional side of this pushchair, there is also the physical appearance. The Pink Nelly is a really cute design, with the main textile colour being dark pink, which covers the exterior of the hood and the seat fabric. This is complimented by a lovely pattern of elephants, giraffes, lions and turtles which covers the interior of the hood and the harness cushions. For me, this is a really sweet girly pattern. As I mentioned earlier, this stroller also comes in other designs, so there is sure to be a Jet to suit anyone's taste and requirements!

Even Munchkin (3 years) fits comfortably!
Although this stroller is primarily for Beastie's use as Munchkin no longer requires wheels to get around, it is really comforting to know that the Jet will seat either of the girls comfortably and safely. There has been one occasion when waiting for a delayed train at the station, and we had been out of the house and very active for the best part of the day, Munchkin's little legs decided they were not carrying her any further! Fortunately, I had prepared for this (which is not common!! Most eventualities have a tendency to creep up on me and find me totally unaware and unprepared!) I had the baby carrier with me, meaning that Munchkin could give her legs a rest, taking comfort in the Jet whilst I carried Beastie. This was surprisingly easy. The separate handles meant that there was no bar knocking Beastie in the carrier and I was able to navigate the stroller without any trouble at all.

All in all, I am really delighted with our Baby Weavers Jet stroller, and I know that it is going to be the perfect pushchair for those summer trips to the shops and the park. However, the raincover (included with the stroller) ensures you are always prepared for the inevitable British weather! This attaches to the frame with 4 velcro straps (2 on each side of the cover) and folds nice and small to sit conveniently in the shopping basket. It is also the ideal stroller if you need something that will fit in the smallest of car boots. This does exactly that. We have carried our Jet in the boots of a Picasso, Focus and a Fiesta and have managed to fit it in comfortably amongst the shopping on every occasion! 

I would absolutely recommend this stroller to anyone who wants something lightweight, reliable and easy to navigate, as well as something that is comfortable, safe and robust for your baby or toddler. Best of all, as is another great feature with Baby Weavers products, The Jet is fantastic value for money. 

The Baby Weavers Jet stroller is available to purchase online and in store at Kiddicare, and if buying this online, you also qualify to take advantage of their FREE Next Day Delivery service, and at the time of me writing this review, the Baby Weavers Jet has a massive 55% off of the RRP! Our Jet gets so much use, and will continue to do so! And something that has surprised me greatly, although it is pink, even daddy doesn't mind being the one pushing it around!
