am currently using graco citilite but am thinking of getting volo now as dd is 1 and a half and i reckon the umbrella folding action will save me some space in the car, as i commute with her twice daily. should i go for it? or not? anyone use it and like it? or otherwise..?
Hiya, I'm really pleased with the Volo, its even lighter and more compact than my Techno XT. I got both from Kiddicare. The Volo's mesh fabric is great when the weather is really hot. I recently bought an accessory pack including sun canopy, raincover and seat liner from Boots (don't know why Kiddicare don't do it) have a look at Boots Volo Accessory Pack . Hope this helps.
I have one in addition to my 3-wheeler, I wouldn't recommend it as your only pushchair but as a second one it's great. It's very lightweight, if I take ds on the tube I can lift the pushchair with him still in it or it's easy to fold one-handed and sling it over my shoulder. It's still quite long when folded so it takes up almost the full width of my boot, but it's very narrow so it would quite easily fit in the footwell of the back seat if I had something big in the boot.
One word of warning is that because it's so light you can't hook many bags over the handles before it tips backwards (although my ds is still quite small so it wouldn't be so bad with a bigger child).
I have a Volo as a second pushchair. I got it for my then almost 3 year old as I needed sonething lightweight and good for buses. I also used it as a second pushchiar for my second son. However, I have recently found the lack of recline a total pain so have gone and bought a Mamas and Papas pulse. If you do not ever need a recline, then it is a wonderful puschiar. Actually, the one other thing I don't like baout it is the brake. It is not very strong.
