The Ume Lite Pushchair | Review


I have said this before and I will say it again, choosing the right pushchair can be a nightmare. Will you be using it on public transport? Across different terrains? Do I need a double or single? There are so many things to consider. If like me, and probably most of the mums I know, one pushchair just doesn't seem to be enough. For me, I do love a good travel system. But, they can be bulky, a nightmare on public transport and take up a lot of room in the car. When I was contacted to see if I was interested in reviewing the Summer Ume Lite Pushchair, I jumped at the chance. Could this be the answer to my pushchair woes?

I have never owed a stroller type puschair and I was a little skeptical as to whether it would suit our needs. However, I have been pleasantly surprised. Firstly, it was very easy to set up. All I needed to do was fit the wheels and attach the hood and cup holder - simple! Though it did take me a good few minutes to work out how to open up the pushchair... Clearly I can't read instructions very well as it was actually very simple once I'd worked it out.

Once it was assembled I immediately noticed the "clean" design. The colour is black and grey and actually looks quite stylish compared to other strollers I have seen. I loved that the handles were to perfect height too, great for both me and Hubby (who is 6ft 4!). The basket is of a good size too, I wasn't expecting it to be as big as it was. The cup holder was also a nice touch.

The main thing I love about this pushchair is just how easy it is to push. Like really easy. It makes my other pushchairs feel like tanks! It's super lightweight but handle's very well. Even my mum commented on how nice it was to push. 


This pushchair is perfect for those who travel, whether it be by public transport or even abroad. It's has a very handy strap so you can even sling it over your shoulder, which I would imagine would be fantastic if you're a regular tube user. We are due to have a city break in February and this will definitely be the pushchair that we will bring. 

Is there anything that we didn't like? It say's it is suitable from birth, though I feel you would need an insert to make them feel extra comfy and secure. Henry, who is now 17 weeks, looks super cosy in there and liked being able to take a good look at the world around him. 

The Summer Ume Lite pushchair retails at £89.99, however, is currently £59.99 on Amazon - Go grab a bargain!

Have you used the Ume Lite?
