Does anyone have the armadillo flip from mamas and papas ?
It's currently on offer and seems a good buy but i would like to hear some real life reviews
We are also interested in the zoom or if we can afford it a quinns buzz xtra or possibly a cosatto
We need something light weight, easy fold, parent and forward facing and with good wheels for county walks and an ISO fix car seat attachment (not asking much!)
Any help anyone?

We have the armadillo flip xt and I love it
Easy, really light, folds flatter than any other pram I've had and I can flip it and fold it down one handed
I'd definitely recommend

Ohh thank you! Do you know if they are often on sale or is this a one off? I am liking the teal but it's the black on offer angry sad

I have the armadillo flip XT and I love it. It's so easy to fold up and I have been able to lift it and I had a c section (didn't lift it for 6 weeks).
My friends wish they'd gone for this pram as its very compact to fold.

Also meant to say the stroller bit is great because the cover comes almost all the way down so the child is covered well in rain/wind etc... You can have it facing parent or outward it's great.
there are loads of videos on you tube.
I have the teal colour :-)

I have the teal too, really happy with it.

I have the navy with brown leather handles, it's lovely smile

Thanks everyone! All really useful. We have moved to a different area than when we had our old pram which would (if it was still useable) be far too heavy so now looking for a new one - had forgotten how complicated It was!

I can see the teal on offer on m&p website at £249?

It is the armadillo flip xt I liked rather than the armadillo flip - sorry! And unfortunately that ones not on offer at the moment - thanks for looking Catkirk

I looked at this, but went with the easywalker new mini/mosey. Did everything the flip.XT did but was cheaper and didn't feel as heavy. Really pleased with it so far.

Thanks autumn I will look into that one too!
Seem to be going around in circles! Find what looks perfect then read the reviews and change my mind!!

I have just got the flip today - not XT though, as it seemed lighter and I have a back problem, so weight was important. Anyone get that one and like it? We will get a cymex seat separately, as that swivels which will help my back too.

I have an Armadillo Flip XT, I think they have a serious design fault. Have stopped using mine as it has flipped three times with my son in (luckily strapped in). it gives no warning and just suddenly flips, they seems to be an issue with the locking mechanism. Please be careful if you have this product.

Oh no user!! What did mamas and papas say?
We have just ordered one in a combined deal with carry cot and car seat - oh no!

user1464893335 Fri 03-Jun-16 12:35:30

I am waiting for one of the managers to call me back as I am trying to escalate the issue as they don't seem to be taking it seriously. I have found this forum www.whatmummythinks.co.uk/baby-accessory-reviews/buggies-pushchairs-accessories/armadillo-flip-xt-review/ where a number of other people have had the same issue. Frame, car seat and carry cot have been fine it is just the buggy part which I have only been using in the last two weeks.

Thanks - I will have to keep an eye out in case there are any recalls or modifications they put out
Thank you for letting me know
