PRODUCT: Mookie Toys QuickSmart Backpack Stroller (www.mookie-toys.co.uk)Mookie Toys Back Pack Stroller

DESCRIPTION: A compact lightweight 3-wheel pushchair which folds into a padded backpack. Features include dual wheels, swivel front wheel, one brake lever, padded seat, footrest, 5-point harness and retractable sun canopy. Includes carry bag with padded shoulder straps and storage pockets. Dimensions are 34.5cm x 26.5cm x 60cm, weight is 4kg/9lbs. Available in a choice of colour designs. Suitable for children aged 6 months upwards (max. weight 15kg/33lbs).

ASSEMBLY: There is absolutely no assembly required prior to use, other than removing the stroller from the carry bag. Unfolding the stroller is simple and involved lifting the legs out until they click into position, folding the seat down using the two grey release buttons, and then rotating the back rest round until it clicks into the main frame. Collapsing the pushchair is just as easy using the various release mechanisms.

Mookie Toys Back Pack StrollerGOOD POINTS: The QuickSmart Backpack Stroller really is an ingenious and very practical little pushchair which is the perfect piece of kit to take on your travels!

It is by far the most lightweight stroller we have reviewed to date, with the added twist that it folds down into a wonderfully compact size for carrying as a backpack. As mentioned above it is incredibly easy to collapse, and once folded stands unsupported, with a very usefully placed carry handle which not only aids transportation, but assists in packing the stroller into its accompanying backpack.

This makes it ideal for storing at home, fitting into car boots or other compact spaces, and also taking on flights or train journeys as it can be stowed easily in overhead luggage compartments. Furthermore, it is perfect also for taking on day outings or journeys on foot with young children who like to switch between walking and being pushed!

The backpack itself is durable and well designed to fit the folded stroller perfectly, with a large double zip opening for easy manoeuvring into and out of the bag. In addition, the backpack has a padded back and adjustable padded shoulder straps to provide maximum comfort for the carrier, as well as useful pockets on the sides and front for storing a few essential items, and a carry handle on the top for quick and convenient lifting.

The stroller is obviously smaller than the average pushchair, but still has a number ofMookie Toys Back Pack Stroller great features to offer your child. Despite its narrower design, the main seat and backrest are soft and padded to provide a comfortable ride, and a cleverly integrated footrest on the front 'leg' offers support for tired feet. The stroller comes with a five-point harness with adjustable shoulder, waist and crotch straps, and has a choice of two shoulder strap heights to cater for growing children. In addition, a concertina-style canopy provides some shelter from the sun, and can be folded completely back when not required.

The Backpack Stroller also has some handy features for parents, including a comfortable easy-to-grip padded handle, a netted pocket on the rear of the backrest to carry a few items and a wrist strap attached to the handle to prevent the pushchair from rolling away - this also doubles as a handy strap for a second child to hold as they walk beside the stroller!

While the stroller is not really designed for rough terrain, it performs well on flat surfaces, and is fairly easy to push and control thanks to its light frame and three hard-wearing dual wheels, of which the front wheel has a swivel mechanism to aid manoeuvre in all directions. In addition, a single brake lever operates both rear wheels by simply pressing down/ lifting up the red pedal with your foot.

Mookie Toys Back Pack StrollerThe QuickSmart Backpack Stroller is, in our opinion, a really innovatively designed 'travel' pushchair that is functional, practical and very convenient for short-term use, and its ultra lightweight and compact design makes it the ideal mode of transport for taking on family holiday and trips, whether home or abroad.

BAD POINTS: Quite expensive and not designed for everyday use or long periods of time. The safety harness is not padded, and the backrest does not recline. Also does not include a raincover. The stroller cannot be folded or unfolded without using both hands.
