Finding Your First Intelligent Pushchair: What to Look For

Nowadays there are so many pushchairs available which, though they may come at a bargain price, won’t provide the best experience for you or your little one. Intelligent pushchairs use innovative technologies and design in order to offer the most practical, functional and comfortable travel option for your lifestyle. Here’s a guide on what to look for when choosing a high performing pushchair and why an intelligent stroller like the Mima Xari can make looking after your baby as simple as can be:

1

Convertibility

Convertibility

The modern busy parent needs a versatile pushchair or baby stroller that can cater for numerous travel situations. For the road trip, the public commute, an easy stroll or a safe place at home, intelligent pushchairs are easily and quickly convertible, giving you the option to change it into a more compact stroller, carry cot or seat.

The Mima Xari pushchair takes the form of an innovative, patented cocoon seat pod, which can be converted in 15 seconds into a convenient carrycot simply by unzipping the seat. The seat is completely removable, with a removable 'safety bar', so it can be used as a high chair at a table.

2

Adaptability

Adaptability

Getting value for money is a priority when choosing the best pushchair for you and your baby. A good pushchair will be able to adapt as your baby grows, making it a reliable travel companion for as long as you need it. Forward or parent facing seat options allow for ease of use, and also look for a pushchair that has adaptable height and recline positions as this will give you the most options depending on your baby’s needs and development. As well as adjustable positions, the Mia Xari has three recline angles for the seat pod – flat for fast asleep, semi-reclined for relaxed and upright for your fully awake baby. The canopy hood also creates minimal, partial or total shade for protection when you’re out on a sunny, wet or windy day.

Compatibility

Compatibility

Often, pushchairs are only compatible with the brand’s own car seats, which in some cases could be costly. When looking for an intelligent pushchair, it may be worth checking whether it will be car seat compatible with your existing car seat or more than one brand. The Mima Xari pushchair is compatible with the Maxi-Cosi CabrioFix and Pebble or Cybex Aton and Cloud, as well as its own range of innovative car seats.

Manoeuvrability

Manoeuvrability

Your choice of pushchair should be guided by where you’ll be using it – are you in an urban area or will you be taking your baby for walks in rural areas with rough terrain? Intelligent pushchairs will usually have features to combat different areas, such as lower suspension for a smoother ride or larger front or back wheels for better stability and handling, especially on stairs. As well as this, the Mima Xari has an extremely light, ‘L’ shaped chassis which is perfectly balanced for easy manoeuvring. It also features an enhanced flip-flop friendly brake pedal, which makes taking your baby around busy areas much safer.

Usability

Usability

Intelligent pushchairs are ideal for holidays or trips in busy areas, as they are compact, lightweight and easy to collapse or fold to be stored in the car or at home. The Xari pushchair, simply folds down with a press of a button and lift of a lever. You can also remove the wheels if you need the pushchair to occupy even less space – it’s small enough to fit in the boot of a Mini.

You’ll also need to consider storage options on the pushchair, so you can easily and securely carry your baby’s essentials or shopping around, without losing manoeuvrability. An intelligent pushchair like the Mima Xari, uses two magnetically fastened lidded buggy baskets for a tidy appearance and protected storage. Plus, the wipe clean seat surface creates a hygienic environment for your baby, giving you improved usability for those inevitable spills and stains.

Comfortability

Comfortability

Even if a pushchair has an intelligent design, if it’s not comfortable for your baby you won’t be getting the best value for money. There are many pushchairs that use memory foam padded seats for ultimate comfort, but you’ll need it to be durable enough to last until your child is ready to leave the pushchair. With a memory foam padded seat pad and carrycot mattress, the Mima Xari is an ideal balance between comfort and intelligent design. The unique seat pod is made from innovative EVA foam material that provides the most ergonomically supportive seat possible for your baby - totally undistorted by any sagging canvas fabrics.
