Graco Evo Mini Stroller – Harlequin

We are very particular about our pushchairs in our house, we like them to be small, easy to push and put down (due to nannies and aunties having the girls too). We were lucky enough to get the Graco Evo Mini stroller to review, my sister who loved the old pushchair was a little skeptical about a new one, but when we got it out the box and put it together that was it. Love at first sight.

From only £159 it was a great little pushchair for 0 to 3 years old. It was quick and easy to put together just attach the front wheel and hood and we were ready to go within a few minutes, although we did find the straps a little tricky to adjust but we got there in the end. The straps can be moved to three different heights as your child grows. They are also well padded for good comfort when they are asleep.

It is very easy to push and can be done with one hand so there is a hand free for the all important morning take away coffee. it weighs around 6.2kg so it is easy to pick up once put down and lift into the car.

The wheel at the front it lockable as well as swivel,to suit the needs at the time and it has a good size basket underneath for the shopping which makes a nice change.  The 5 point safety harness is easy to get the little ones in and out of. The seat fully reclines using the drawstring system at the back of the seat, which gives a good sleeping position. The seat itself is well padded on both sides to give extra protection and a comfy ride.

There is a rain cover included which is always a good thing in Britain as you can guarantee that rain is just round the corner. The rain fits well and keeps does its job. The hood itself also extends further than most do which gives extra protection or just a little more cover when they are sleeping.

It appears to be a smooth ride and when have no complaints so far. The handlebar is also padded, and with a push of the button and one twist the pushchair is down with only one hand. The pushchair comes in different colours to suit all tastes.

For a while now we have been trying out some of the fabulous OXO tot range.


The non spill bottle and bowl are fantastic.

Often on a trip out with boo we need to take snacks, snacks that usually go all over the car and don’t really end up in the place they should have been.

So the bowl has a great handle, which is  easy for little hands to hold and then the lid is designed so se can get her little hands in to get the food, but the food won’t suddenly descend onto the floor, no matter how hard she shakes. And trust me. She has.

Then the twist top bottle. Not something you see much these days, but a real classic. Easy for me to open, which lets face it, with my wobbly hands is always a challenge and easy for Pops and Boo to hold. Boo was more into the twist top that Pops, which meant she would actually close it after using it, bonus.

With a twist of the lid the cup becomes completely leak free, in-fact even with the straw up it doesn’t leak. Which for two children prone to bouts of random ‘not sharing’ is perfect.

The OXO tot range is a particular favorite of mine. The products are beautiful and really well made, they can handle all the knocks and bashes of toddler life and still come out the other side, still doing the job. With a wide variety of products from baby to toddler, there really is something for everyone and you can be sure they will last several children. Even mine 😉
