Best Travel System | Nuna Mixx Review

Best Travel System | Nuna Mixx Review


Travel systems can
be really handy in the first day of
your baby’s life. In fact, so many parents say
they’re an absolute essential. If you’re not sure what a travel
system is, I don’t blame you. This stuff can be
really confusing. It’s basically a push
cart that you can attach a carry cot or a car seat to. Simple. In our mission to find the
best travel system out there, we spoke to experts, local
NCT groups, and Mumsnet users, before putting 15 different
prams to the test. Each product was tested
with a seven-month-old baby and scored on six key areas. Safety and stability,
assembly, day to day use, aesthetics, cleanliness,
and value for money. We’ve awarded the Nuna Mixx
the Mumsnet best travel system 2019. Quite simply, it’s style
and comfort rolled into one. It offers plenty of room
for a newborn and a toddler, and it has a huge sun
shade and storage basket. Suitable from birth
to around age 4, the Nuna Mixx can be used with
a carry cot or a car seat, and it comes in a selection
of four different colours. Negatives. Well, it’s a bit
bulky, and we do wish that the carry cot
and car seat came as part of the standard Nuna package. But overall, it’s really comfy
and an absolute dream to push. To start off with, let’s look at
the carry cot and the car seat. I love how simple it
is to attach the car seat to the pushchair frame,
especially if my daughter falls asleep in the car and I
don’t want to wake her. It’s also a big bonus to
be able to attach a carry cot so that my daughter
can have a nap. It feels very sturdy, but
I do feel like a bigger baby would outgrow it quickly. But it’s the main pushchair bit
that you will get the most use out of, and I tell you what. It is a really comfy ride. It’ll nip around sharp
corners so smoothly you won’t even bat an
eyelid, and the handle can be adjusted for
different heights, which is really helpful if you have
someone in the family who’s over 6 foot. The real wheels
are nice and big. Well, massive actually. And the suspension means that
you’ll barely even notice going up and down the curbs. But while the Nuna
doesn’t bill itself as a pushchair meant for
loads of off-roading, it does handle bumpy terrain
and grass really well. The brake is also
really easy to access. It can be flicked on
and off with your foot even with sandals on, which
in my opinion, is a huge win. One thing I think parents will
really like about the Nuna is that it offers
a lot more storage than a lot of the other
travel systems we tested. I honestly don’t
understand the concept of buying a pram that doesn’t
offer a lot of storage, especially if you’re shelling
out for a pricey one. Take note, manufacturers. It even has a handy
fit pocket where you can put your phone
or any other valuables that you might
want to tuck away. What I also really love
about this pushchair is how roomy and versatile
the main seat is. It can be easily
switched between parent and forward facing, and it has
a number of recline options which means it’s
suitable for newborns even without a carry cot. The straps are really
easy to adjust, and there’s a five
point harness that is secure and quick to release. And let’s not forget
the covers can be removed and chucked into
the washing machine, which would definitely be music
to most parents ears. Seriously, who makes
non-washable baby products? When it comes to
packing the Nuna away, it’s really simple,
although you’ll definitely need two hands. All you need to do is lower
the bumper bar at the front, lift the catch at
the back of the chair to fold the seat
forward, and then press the two buttons on the
handle to lift the whole frame and push it forward. And the latch at the bottom will
automatically go into place. It’s also pretty easy
to unfold the Nuna. All you need to do is release
the catch at the bottom so that you can lift the handle
until it clicks into place, recline the seat backwards,
and then lift the bumper bar. You can also fold the
Nuna down with the seat in the rear facing
position, although it does feel a little bit bigger
if you fold it down in this way. While the Nuna is easy to
fold, it’s not as compact as it could be, which might make
during home a bit of a pain. And also you might need
to remove the wheels if you’re packing it
into a small car boot. If you’re worried
about size or have a lot of stairs to
contend with every day, this may not be the
pushchair for you. You might want to check
out a lightweight buggy such as the Babyzen or the
Maxi-cosi Laika instead. A few of the things I really
like about this travel system are the cooling mesh
panels, the leather finish, and the cosy footmuff, which
give this pushchair a really luxurious feel. And I think parents
will appreciate the peekaboo window
that can be pinned back easily with hidden magnets. But one of the
absolute best features is a huge, extendable hood. Look at it! It is massive. Overall the Nuna Mixx 2019
is a solid all-rounder. The basic pushchair
costs 450 pounds, and it comes with the rain
cover, the footmuff and the car seat adapters. But if you want to buy it with
the carry cot and the car seat, you will usually be able to find
a deal for around 700 pounds. It’s not cheap, but it
should last you a long time. And while it’s not as compact
as we might like it to be, there are a whole
host of other things that make the Nuna Mixx
2019 a really great buy.
