Nuna MIXX2, Nuna MIXX 2019, Nuna MIXX NEXT 2020 – Stroller Review

Nuna’s most iconic stroller – MIXX – has changed significantly over the last few years and become parents favorite. If you’re here you probably want to know one thing: “Is Nuna MIXX really worth the money?”.

I will answer this question in this article by reviewing and comparing all three models of Nuna MIXX stroller: MIXX2 from 2018, MIXX 2019 and MIXX NEXT 2020. I hope my review will show you how Nuna MIXX has evolved in the last 3 years and help you to decide which version is best for your baby!

But first, a little bit of background information…

Nuna Mixx2 Review

Use Table of Content to skip to other parts of the review.

Let me start by telling you a story how Nuna iconic stroller has changed since its debut. First edition of Nuna Mixx stroller was presented at the ABC Kids Expo in 2014. A few months later this stroller hit the market. It was a high-end luxury stroller with some fancy features that other strollers lacked at this time.

I didn’t have the chance to test the first model, and now it’s no longer available. This is the main reason why I decided to skip this stroller in my review.

However, I had the opportunity to meet the second generation – Nuna MIXX2. The brand did a really good job by upgrading the stroller for 2017/2018 and made it more user-friendly.

The biggest changes were applied to the frame, wheels and fabrics. The stroller went a beautiful makeover and got even more luxurious look.

Here is my story how I meet Nuna MIXX2: My friend who has 5-month-old baby asked mi for a coffee. We haven’t seen each other for a while so we agreed “no kids!” 🙂 Finally, we meet at nice coffee shop and she shows up with a baby in a stroller, apologizing me because her husband had some work and couldn’t stayed with the baby.

To be honest I wasn’t listening to her because I was so fascinated by her… stroller! Yep, I feel a little embarrassed but I have to admit, at the beginning I was more excited by her stroller than meeting her (very lovely) daughter. 🙂

So she was pushing brand new Nuna MIXX2 with one hand, holding her stylish purse in other hand, gliding so easily between tables. Oh, and the storage basket… it was full of shopping bags, diaper bag, blanket and few other things. I was so jealous! So of course I couldn’t resist to ask her about the stroller and try it out.

If you’ve read some of my reviews on this blog, you already know how much I love versatile and multifunctional strollers. No wonder, this one stole my heart immediately!

For 2019 Nuna has updated the stroller once again and decided to give it its old name (which may be a bit confusing when you compare all models). To make things simpler I will always call this version Nuna MIXX 2019.
This time the stroller received awesome new all-season seat, new fashions. This is only the first model that comes with the Ring Adapter (for Nuna’s car seats) included in the basic set.

What’s interesting Nuna has been working on the new model – Nuna MIXX NEXT – for 2020. The biggest upgrade for this stroller will be the new suspension. But we have to wait till Summer 2020 to test it out. Nuna has also changed folding mechanism to make the stroller a bit more compact.

Okay, I gave you a little bit of background information about Nuna stroller, now it’s time to find out what features it has, what makes it so special and if it’s really splurge-worthy!

Without further ado, I’m presenting you my review and comparison of last 3 models of Nuna MIXX: Nuna MIXX2 2017/2018, Nuna MIXX 2019 and Nuna MIXX NEXT 2020.

Enjoy!

Nuna MIXX2, Nuna MIXX 2019, Nuna Mixx Next 2020 – everything you need to know about Nuna’s famous stroller

Regardless the model of Nuna MIXX you choose, you will get one of the best full-sized, convertible strollers available on the market today. All-in-one everyday stroller with chic look.

However there are some important differences between models from the last 3 years which can have a huge impact on your purchase choice.

Seating options

With Nuna MIXX2 you can stroll with your baby in a stylish way! This stroller is also very versatile – perfect for parents who like flexibility. It offers a few seating options – if you decide to purchase additional attachments. The basic set includes a rear and front facing standard seat which is newborn-friendly. There are two additional modes for newborn baby: bassinet and travel system (with infant car seat) – both sold separately.

Seat

Each version of this stroller comes with a standard seat which is recommended by manufacturers from birth up to 50 pounds.

There is 5-position recline to provide maximum comfort during riding and napping. Parents can easily recline the seat with one hand thanks to a handle on the back of the seat – which is super intuitive and easy to operate. There is also adjustable calf support and footrest.

Your baby can just lie back in flat position and rest their legs comfortably. According to the manufacturer the fully reclined seat is newborn-ready.

Nuna MIXX 2019 vs MIXX2 - Full recline and newborn mode
Here you can see the infant mode on Nuna MIXX 2019 and MIXX2 – suitable from birth

So you can recline the seat all the way down and then you can lift the calf rest all the way up and snap it to both sides of the seat frame to create an enclosed space for your sleeping little baby. It will give the baby more privacy for undisturbed sleep.

As you can see, Nuna MIXX can be used from birth without the additional bassinet which is sold separately. However, if you want to provide your baby with more comfortable and private place for longer strolls and naps on the go, then I would recommend you getting the bassinet (more on that below).

Older and bigger children will also love the adjustable calf rest when it’s a nap time. There is also a step where taller children can rest their feet, however it’s not adjustable and can be used only when the child is facing the World.

What I love about Nuna MIXX2, MIXX 2019 and MIXX NEXT 2020 is that the baby can ride facing parents or the World. Reversing the seat is a piece of cake, you just press two buttons on both sides of the seat and lift it up.

I think it is very useful to have a reversible seat. When my babies were little I preferred when they were facing me. Now, when they are older and curious about everything they want to watch everything around and ride facing out.

Nuna MIXX 2019 vs MIXX2 - Reversible Seat
Each stroller from Nuna MIXX collection has a reversible seat. You can also see in this picture that the most upright position is pretty up – ideal for curious toddlers

What I also like about this seat is the upright position – when the seat is fully up, the child can sit pretty straight which is very useful for toddlers who want to see everything.

Oh, there is one more thing that is common for all 3 model: you can attach a removable arm bar to keep the baby safe. It not only prevents the baby from falling out, it’s also a thing that baby can comfortably hold on to. This arm bar features luxurious leather-look fabric.

All the features that I’ve mentioned above are the same for MIXX2, MIXX 2019 and MIXX NEXT 2020. Now the differences.

The biggest difference is the padding and the material.

Nuna MIXX2 has a really good, deep and cushy padding. The seat is much more comfortable than on many other strollers which often feel like a hard board. MIXX2 uses cotton blend fabric (mélange fabric) which feels like a plush, but it’s also fairly breathable.

The seat fabric can be easily removed and washed. It’s very important because it WILL get dirty at some point and it’s good to have the ability to clean it in a washing machine. You won’t have problems with putting it on again after cleaning – everything easily snaps into place.

Nuna MIXX 2019 and Nuna MIXX2
Nuna MIXX 2019 and Nuna MIXX2 seat fabrics are machine washable

In 2019 the brand went one step ahead and made the seat even more airy. The new MIXX 2019 received completely different seat, called “all-season seat”. Now the padding is made of Bamboo which wicks away moisture. It’s removable and reveals mesh seat back. Of course everything is machine washable in case of a diaper blowout or when milks gets spilled out.

So when it’s hot outside you can take off the padding and allow the air to circulate through the mesh backrest and prevent your baby from sweating. When it gets chilly outside, you can add the Bamboo padding to keep your child warm.

As you can see the seat is perfect for all seats as it can be adjusted to the weather conditions. I wish all strollers have this feature but it’s still a luxury that only a few strollers offer.

The newest Nuna MIXX NEXT 2020 will feature the same all-season seat as the MIXX 2019.

Nuna MIXX 2019 - All-season seat
Nuna MIXX 2019 has an all-season seat with mesh for summer and cozy cover for winter (MIXX NEXT will come with the same seat)

Of course the new all-season seat makes Nuna MIXX 2019 more expensive than MIXX2 from 2017! I think that the padding on the older model is still awesome and very comfortable, however, if you have more flexible budget and you live in an area where winters are harsh and summers are hot – I would recommend you the newer model with all-season seat.

If you’ve had a chance to compare Nuna MIXX with other stroller, you’ve probably noticed that the seat is mounted pretty high up on the frame. 2019 and 2020 have even higher seat (in comparison to 2017/2018 model). It’s very convenient for taking baby in and out of the stroller – you don’t have to bend all the way down (you’ll appreciate it when you’re right after giving birth). And when the child gets older you can use the stroller instead of a chair in a restaurant as this is a table height.

Another important feature that distinguishes Nuna MIXX2 and Nuna MIXX 2019 is the harness. The older stroller had standard harness and using the restrain took some practice. Since 2019 Nuna MIXX has been equipped with a no re-thread harness which is so much easier to adjust. Nuna MIXX NEXT will have the same harness system.

Nuna MIXX 2019 - No re-thread harness
Harness system is one of the differences between Nuna MIXX2 and MIXX 2019 – the latter one has improved, no re-thread harness

In each model of Nuna MIXX stroller the harness can be easily converted from 5-point to 3-point system, as the child grows.

Psst! Do you love this versatile stroller but it’s over your budget? Don’t worry! Here are my reviews of awesome strollers under $300: Evenflo Pivot Modular, Britax B-Agile 2017, Baby Jogger City Tour 2.

Bassinet

You can also use this stroller MIXX series bassinet – which connects to both MIXX2 and MIXX 2019 strollers. The bassinet provides the most suitable position for newborns for long strolls and naps. It can be used from birth to 20 lbs or 27″ (whatever comes first). The carrycot itself weighs 11.2 lbs.

Nuna MIXX Series Bassinet
In this picture you can see Nuna MIXX2 with MIXX series bassinet – which is suitable for newborns and infants. The same bassinet can be used for MIXX 2019 stroller

This bassinet is approved for overnight sleep so you can actually use it instead of a crib. You just need a special Nuna bassinet stand for it which collapses for easier storage. When the bassinet is not in use, it can be easily folded down to compact and flat package. I love this design! It’s a very convenient option for parents who don’t have a lot of space in their apartment.

The bassinet has a canopy with integrated mesh window that provides extra air-flow. There is also hidden storage pocket for parents essentials.

Nuna MIXX series bassinet features: mesh windows in the canopy, storage pocket inside the bassinet and flat fold

It also comes with a Dream Drape, which you can see in the picture below. This cover is designed to provide baby with undisturbed, peaceful sleep. I know that some parents still put a blanket, towel or nappy over the canopy to protect the baby from sun, but remember that it’s dangerous for the baby as it may block the airflow. Dream Drape is a safe alternative – it doesn’t block air circulation but provides full shade the baby.

Nuna MIXX Series - Carrycot with Dream Drape

The MIXX series bassinet has an apron (top cover) which is removable thanks to release magnets. Just like the mattress cover, the apron is machine washable.

Currently the bassinet is only available in one color – Caviar and costs around $150.

So remember that both the bassinet and fully reclined seat are suitable for newborns. Therefore with the fully reclined seat, bassinet is actually only an optional item that you can buy, but you doesn’t really have to! How great is that!?

Infant Car Seat Compatibility – Nuna MIXX Travel System

Each stroller from MIXX series (MIXX2, MIXX 2019 and MIXX NEXT 2020) can be turned into a travel system.
Nuna MIXX2 comes with infant car seat adapters that are compatible with Nuna PIPA series infant car seats, as well as Maxi Cosi and Cybex infant car seat.

The newer Nuna MIXX 2019 comes with a different adapter called “Ring adapter” which holds the infant car seat even more securely. Nuna MIXX NEXT 2020 will include the Ring adapter as well. Keep in mind that the Ring adapter can accommodate only the Nuna PIPA infant car seats – it doesn’t work with Maxi Cosi or Cybex!

Nuna MIXX Ring Adapter and old-type adapters
Here you can see the difference between Ring Adapters (included with Nuna MIXX 2019) and old-type adapters (included with MIXX2)

So, if you want your Nuna stroller to work with other car seat brands like Cyber or Maxi Cosi – choose the MIXX2 from 2017/2018. If you plan on buying Nuna infant car seat, you can either go for the MIXX2 or choose the newer one MIXX 2019 or wait for the MIXX NEXT.

Here is the Nuna MIXX 2019 and Nuna MIXX2 with Pipa series infant car seat. Notice that the adapters included with the strollers are different: MIXX 2019 comes with Ring adapters (compatible only with Nuna infant car seat), while MIXX2 comes with an standard type adapters compatible with Nuna, Maxi Cosi and Cybex

A few words about Nuna PIPA series infant car seats

Nuna PIPA is an amazing infant car seat that can be installed in a car within few second. It easily attaches onto the stroller frame as well and clicks audibly when it’s done so you can be sure you put it in the right spot.

What is really great about Nuna PIPA is that it can be installed in the car with or without the base – perfect solution for parents who travel or often use different cars.

What’s the most important thing about infant car seat? Safety – of course! When it comes to Nuna, their products not only look awesome but they are designed with child’s safety in mind. Nuna PIPA car seat features side impact protection, stability leg that absorbs the impact in case of an accident and minimizes force to the baby, shell shape that is resilient and keeps the baby in safe position and adjustable 5-point harness.

Nuna PIPA infant car seat

The interior of the car seat is padded with cozy and breathable fabric, there is a mesh window on the canopy for additional airflow and a mesh Dream Drape that provides nice shade for the baby without blowing air circulation.

There are also two other Nuna infant car seats that work with MIXX strollers: PIPA Lite LX and PIPA Lite. They are a little bit different from regular PIPA car seat.

The biggest difference is the weight and fabric.

Nuna PIPA weighs 9.4 pounds (with the canopy and insert), Nuna PIPA Lite weighs only 6.7 pounds, while PIPA Lite LX weighs 7.1 pounds.

PIPA Lite features jersey-like fabric, while the PIPA Lite LX uses merino wool TENCEL lyocell fiber blend fabric. What’s important PIPA Lite misses the pee-a-boo window and the Dream Drape, however you can find both those features on PIPA Lite LX. The latter one is the most expensive out of three models of Nuna PIPA series.

Keep in mind that you can choose to buy Nuna MIXX as a travel system – with one of the PIPA car seats included or you can buy the infant car seat separately. You can do it for example on PishPosh Baby (click here to check the price & colors for original PIPA car seat).

Canopy

This is one of the features that I love about the MIXX – it has amazing, large and breathable canopy.

When the canopy is fully extended it protects the baby from the sun really well. The fabric is made of a UPF 50+ fabric for additional protection.

The canopy has 3 panels – the middle one opens with a zipper and has two mesh windows – one on each side – which provides extra ventilation.

Nuna MIXX 2019 vs MIXX2 - Extendable canopy

Of course there is also a mesh peek-a-boo window. It doesn’t have loud Velcro closure, but silent magnets so you can check on your little one the whole time without disturbing his sleep.

Each stroller from Nuna MIXX collection has also a flip out sun visor that keeps the sun out of baby’s eyes.

There is one major difference between the canopy on Nuna MIXX2 and MIXX 2019. The former one has larger peek-a-boo window, however the later one has additional mesh vent, right below the viewing window. On warmer days you can untuck the cover and let your passenger to feel the breeze. You can also use this vent to spy on your sleeping baby.

It’s really awesome that MIXX 2019 has such a breathable canopy. Ideal for hot summers

Wheels

This Nuna stroller has large rubberized tires, filled with foam in the back which can handle pretty much all types of terrain and minimize the impact of bumps and shocks on the little passenger. Front wheels are smaller and plastic therefore they don’t handle bigger bumps.

The combination of foam-filled and plastic wheels makes Nuna MIXX strollers suitable for poor sidewalks and cobblestone, as well as gravel, grass and hard-packed sand, but they won’t handle trails, roots or bark chips.

Having rubber and plastic wheels means that you don’t have to worry about inflating or taking air-pump with you everywhere you go.

All three strollers: MIXX2, MIXX 2019 and MIX NEXT 2020 have the same wheel size. Rear wheels are 11″ and front wheels are 7.5″.

Nuna MIXX wheels not only roll very nicely, but also look super stylish. Chrome black wheels with white parts together with the dark matte frame look chic and smart.

Nuna MIXX2, MIXX 2019 and MIXX NEXT 2020 have the same wheels. The rear ones are filled with foam, the front ones are plastic. The size is also the same for all three strollers: 11″ and 7.5″

Suspension & Maneuverability

Nuna MIXX2 and MIXX 2019 maneuver very smoothly and can be pushed with one hand. The wheels roll nicely so navigating and turning is almost effortless. These Nuna strollers have really tight turning radius and turn 360 degrees without any problems. Such an easy operating is unsurpassed among full-sized stroller.

What’s really great about MIXX stroller is that you can use them as city strollers: for trips to the mall or park, going to the playground or daycare and trips to grandparents.

However, thanks to large foam rear wheels and progressive suspension technology built in all wheels, you can stroll over unbeaten terrain as well! Whether you choose flat terrain or slightly rough surface, the stroller will provide smooth and comfortable ride.

It is noteworthy that Nuna is going to upgrade the suspension and the new Nuna MIXX NEXT 2020 will handle bumps even better! The enhanced suspension will absorb the shocks making the ride more comfortable, whether it’s the snow, old pavement or a sandy road. It’s one of the two most important improvements that Nuna is going to add to MIXX in 2020 – I can’t wait to test it out and compare with previous versions.

Brakes

Each model of Nuna MIXX stroller is equipped with a single action brake that locks the rear wheels. The pedal is conveniently placed in the middle of rear axle and has color indicators. Using is simple and very intuitive, no matter if you stand behind it or aside.

To lock the stroller you need to step on the red side and to release the brake you have to press the green part. It’s easy to do in flip flops, sneakers or high heels and you don’t have to worry that you hurt your toes or ruin your pedicure.

Each version of Nuna MIXX feature user-friendly parking brake which doesn’t require any lifting. No more worries about your pedicure! 🙂

Handlebar

All 3 models of MIXX by Nuna feature adjustable, telescoping handlebar with three height positions. It extends from 38″ to 42″ from the ground, providing comfortable pushing for shorter and taller parents.

This push bar has really stylish and luxury look thanks to hand-sewn fabric that looks like a leather. Although this is not a real leather it feels really nice and all the stitches and the fabric are high-quality.

The arm bar has the same leather-look cover.

There is one noticeable difference between MIXX2 and MIXX 2019 – the former one has black covers for the handlebar and bumper bar, while the latter one has also brown covers.

Storage Space

Nuna MIXX strollers have really awesome storage basket under the seat. It’s HUGE! There is a zippered pouch inside where you can keep your small belongings like keys or wallet stored securely.

There is also a divider so you can separate your stuff into two compartments which might be really useful if you take a lot of things with you and you don’t want to waste time on searching them in a large basket. You can also use the basket as one big storage, it really depends on your preferences.

Nuna MIXX2 storage basket
Here you can see the storage basket on Nuna MIXX2 – it can easily hold some grocery bags or a large diaper bag

As you can see in the picture this basket is really huge, you can easily fit there a big diaper bag, your purse, some snacks and a blanket for your baby or some groceries. And it’s very easy accessible from the back and both sides.

The basket is made of a fairly stiff material therefore it doesn’t sag down. All three model: MIXX2, MIXX 2019 and MIXX NEXT 2020 have the same storage basket.

There is however one important difference between MIXX2 and MIXX 2019. MIXX2 2017/2018 has one additional storage pouch on the back of the seat. It’s pretty big and it easily accommodates a phone, a wallet, tissues, wipes or even some snacks. What I also like about this storage is the silent magnetic closure – you don’t have to worry about waking up your baby when you take out your stuff.

Unfortunately the newer MIXX 2019 doesn’t have this useful pocket. This model has 2-layer seat and the outer one is made of mesh. This is the reason why the pocket has been removed.

I hope Nuna will add at least a small pocket on the back of the seat on the upgraded MIXX NEXT 2020!

Weight & Folding

Nuna MIXX2, MIXX 2019 and MIXX NEXT are standard full-sized strollers, therefore they weigh more than lightweight travel strollers, but less than joggers.

MIXX2 by Nuna weighs 26.8 lbs (without the arm bar and canopy) and its dimensions are: 33.5″ x 23.4″ x 44.3″ (L x W x H).

Newer model – MIXX 2019 weighs 27 lbs (without the winter seat or arm bar), and its dimensions are: 37 x 23.5 x 44 (L x W x H). There is no official information on the weight and dimensions of the Nuna MIXX NEXT 2020, but they shouldn’t be very different from previous models anyway.

The difference between MIXX2 and MIXX 2019 in weight is very small, when you add the accessories, each stroller is about 28-28.5 lbs – to be honest it’s not the lightest to carry, and it’s a bit more bulky than other standard strollers. But it’s the tradeoff for the awesome features like wheels, all-season seat, large basket etc.

Each model of Nuna MIXX is simple and quick to fold, no matter if the seat is rear or front facing. It’s actually very useful and a big advantage, that you don’t have to change the position of the seat before folding – like for example in UPPAbaby Vista. You can also take off the seat first and fold the frame separately.

There are however differences between all MIXX strollers in fold dimensions.

Nuna MIXX 2019 vs MIXX2 - Fold
Here I compared folded Nuna MIXX 2019 and MIXX2. What’s really awesome is that the newest MIXX NEXT 2020 will have more compact fold (about 8 inches shorter!)

Folded Nuna MIXX2 stroller is pretty flat: 35.8″ x 23.6″ x 16″ (L x W x H). Folded Nuna MIXX 2019 is: 34″ x 23.5″ x 18″ (L x W x H). I don’t have exact dimensions of the Nuna MIXX NEXT 2020 – but it should be a few inches shorter thanks to upgraded folding mechanism (the way the frame collapses).

Of course it’s not a small stroller and it’s not as easy to store as travel strollers. However, it’s not terrible. Its dimensions are typical for this type of stroller. For example, UPPAbaby VISTA folded dimensions are very similar.

Nuna strollers have one more great feature – when MIXX is folded you can pull it like a suitcase, leaning on the rear wheels. It’s really useful that you don’t have to carry this stroller all the way, you can just simply roll it. I also love the way it folds because the fabric don’t touch the ground and don’t get dirty.

There is an automatic lock that keeps the stroller folded. Unfolding is also pretty easily and one-handed, however it requires bending. Remember that first you need to unlock the stroller.

Accessories Included

Nuna MIXX2 stroller comes with a rain cover and adapter that can hold PIPA Series infant car seats, as well as infant car seats from Maxi Cosi and Cybex. The arm bar is included too.

Nuna MIXX 2019 includes a different type of a car seat adapter (Rind adapter) which can only accommodate Nuna car seats. The stroller comes with the arm bar, however the rain shield is no longer included – you need to purchase it separately.

Other accessories that are sold separately: wheeled travel bag, cup holder, child tray, bassinet, bassinet stand, additional adapters (both types) and of course Nuna PIPA series infant car seats.

What other parents think about Nuna MIXX2 and Nuna MIXX 2019

When it comes to Nuna MIXX2, I found some reviews written by other parents in different online shops, as well as a few video reviews. What parents praise and complain about most often?

The stroller is easy to put together and looks very stylish. It moves and turns easily. Folding and opening is not a problem at all and the basket is large enough to accommodate all needed parents’ stuff.

The main complains are: the stroller doesn’t expand (you can’t attach another seat or a board) and the canopy doesn’t always stay in place when it’s open and the seat is fully reclined.

How about MIXX 2019 – what parent think about this model?

The feature that rave about most often is the all-season seat – which keeps the child from overheating in summer and cold in winter.

Flat recline that is suitable for newborn baby is another advantage, because it allows you to skip the bassinet and save money.

The biggest disadvantage is Nuna MIXX 2019 weight (that applies to all versions actually), as well as the lack of the pocket on the back of the seat.

When the MIXX NEXT gets released I will update this section and let you know what parents think about it.

On the other hand, MIXX 2019 gives you more options to choose from: Birch, Caviar and Granite. Keep in mind that color versions may have different prices. Before you decide to buy this stroller don’t forget to compare the prices and discounts for all colors.

We are still waiting for the confirmation from Nuna about the colors for the Nuna MIXX NEXT 2020.

You are probably wondering which version on Nuna MIXX stroller you should choose. It is worth to pay extra for the MIXX 2019? Or maybe you should go for the older MIXX2? Or maybe it’s better to wait for the MIXX NEXT 2020?

To make things simpler I prepared a quick comparison of MIXX2 vs MIXX 2019 vs MIXX NEXT 2020 with list of changes and upgrades that were made each year. I hope it will help you to narrow down your choice.

  • MIXX 2019: Choose MIXX 2019 if you live in area where summers are hot and winters are cold – the all-season seat will suit you best.

Nuna MIXX Strollers – Final Assessment

My rate:

I have to admit that – strollers from Nuna MIXX collection are a serious competition for strollers like UPPAbaby Vista! It’s super comfortable for the baby, easy to push and glides like a breeze. And it looks so chic!

Moreover, Nuna MIXX is safe for the baby, because it doesn’t contain any chemical ingredients according to the manufacturer. No wonder so many parents felt in love with it!

Nuna MIXX2 is not the cheapest stroller on the market, so before you decide to buy it read other parents reviews to make sure it suit your style and check available discounts (click here to see current price).

  1. We have this stroller and the Pippa car seat and the canopies don’t stay open. Absolutely terrible stroller, I don’t recommend it.

    1. Hi Janie! Thanks for sharing your experience. Have you tried to contact the manufacturer about it? It may be a defective version…

  2. I am visiting my 9 month grandson and I find the Nuna stroller very difficult to strap him in. In a dark, hot, narrow Brooklyn apartment corridor, it is hard to navigate the 5 part strap with a squirmy 9 month month old. One strap over each shoulder and then each leg affixed into a central point. The shoulder strap attachments have to be affixed just so. I will not recommend this stroller.
