"Perfectly great buggy…"
I saw that some people didn't like this but I found it a great little buggy for my son. It wasn't top of the line but took all the wear and tear of daily use.Read moreLess
"I love this buggy…"
I seem to be in a bit of a minority here, but I love this buggy. We bought it preloved when DS was 9 months old because he didn't like being forced to sit in a slightly-reclined position and generally hated being in pushchairs. Due to the combination of the play-tray, floating reigns and spacious seat, he now loves being in the Aria so much that he tries climb into it whenever he sees it! I think it is a very 'baby-centred' pushchair since all of the best features are for DS rather than me, but you know what? Happy baby = happy parents!<br><br>Pros:<br>- Still going strong despite being pre-loved<br>- Easy to fold/unfold<br>- Very light (5 kg)<br>- Very easy to steer<br>- Flip-flop friendly brake<br>- Very spacious storage under seat<br>- Rain-cover covers the back of the buggy so protects whatever is under the seat<br>- Excellent floating reigns allow toddlers a sense of freedom<br>- Large and spacious seat so should last<br>- Comfort for baby<br>- Play-tray is very useful and again gives toddler a sense of freedom<br><br>Cons:<br>- Sun-shade doesn't come out very far<br>- Handle doesn't extend (even though it could easily have been designed to do so)<br>- Doesn't look particularly flash<br>- The floating reigns mean that toddler can sit themselves up in the lie-flat positionRead moreLess
"easy to fold, lightweight and easy to steer…"
really surprised at reviews here, as we have found ours to be a brilliant choice from birth too. when the baby was light up to about 2 years I could steer it easily with one hand, much easier than larger prams. its still going sgtrong 6 years on and we are using it with no 2.!!!we got another buggy with pumped up wheels from about 2 ish as with childs weight increasing, became more dfficult to steer, but after a section it was a dream as so light, great to fold, opens with one hand, folds small. its been brilliant!Read moreLess
"nice little pushchair.…"
This is a nice little pushchair, good size basket, comfortable seat, small fold.<br>but i dont think the quality is great as the wheels and fabric do seem very cheapish.<br>this would be an ideal pushchair for a spare or round Nannys house.Read moreLess

"Terrible buggy! Difficult to steer, the wheel fell off after…"
Terrible buggy!<br>Difficult to steer, the wheel fell off after 6 months and not cheap either! I got a Maclaren once my Aria broke and it lasted another 4 years so would recommend that instead.Read moreLess
"hate it hate it HATE IT!!! This is by FAR…"
hate it hate it HATE IT!!! This is by FAR the worst buggy I have ever used!!<br>Horrible to get up and down (I'm sure there is a knack but I haven't found it). Flimsy, felt like it was going to fall apart and worst of all, an absolute nightmare to steer! I was in Waitrose - completely flat, shiny floor and it wouldn't let me turn corners!!<br>My wrists are now very painful after only a couple of hours of wrestling with this thing.<br>Straight onto Freecycle it goes.<br>To be fair, my LO did seem comfy and he did seem happy so from that side of things fine but for ME.... BAD.Read moreLess
