The two things I like most about this pram is its stylish look and multi-position design. It looks a lot more expensive than its price tag, and at first glance I would have thought it cost a hundred pounds more. Being able to easily change the pram from front to rear facing is fantastic, too, as my little one often has different preferences according to how tired she is.
I really liked the integral sunshade/mosquito net and rain cover. The sunshade is proving to be extremely useful while the sun is shining and I find it’s very effective in comparison to the sunshades on rival brands. The Babystyle Oyster 2 also has a big shopping basket which I’ve found very handy.
Some of the parts, such as the hood and the seat insert, are fiddly to attach. I had to use quite a bit of force to get the hood to clip on – I was worried that I was going to break something. The hood also needs to be purchased separately. It’s quality, overall, does not match its appearance.
Also, I feel that the Babystyle Oyster 2 is quite heavy (11kg) for its size, although it’s still perfectly manageable. The fold mechanism is also not ideal for public transport as it requires two hands.
