We were sent this Britax Holiday stroller for the purpose of review due to being a Britax Mumbassador. All thoughts and opinions are our own.
The latest addition to Britax Römer’s pushchair offering, the Britax Holiday is suitable for children from six months – 15kg (three years) and is one of the lightest pushchairs on the market, weighing only 5kg and free standing when folded with a compact length of 60cm and a width of 25.5cm. It can fit easily into the boot of a car or in the overhead compartments of other vehicles. It can be easily folded and unfolded with one quick motion and also has a carry strap for easy transportation.
The Britax Holiday includes a hood with sun visor, ventilation mesh on both sides of the seat as well as above the head and a large basket with a five-kilogram weight capacity for travel essentials. It has swivel front wheels and a five-point safety harness which can be easily adjusted to the height of your child in three positions to ensure children travel in both safety and comfort.
The Britax Holiday is available in six colours: Coral Peach, Steel Grey, Cosmos Black, Aqua Green, Ocean Blue and Flame Red and is available exclusively at Argos from August 2017 and other retailers from January 2018, with an RRP of £120. We were sent a Flame Red model and have been putting it to the test over the past month in a variety of conditions.
Over the past month we have been to events on the common, to the zoo, round theme parks and just general day to day activities. I wanted to see how well it worked on the pavement, the road and off road. Lightweight, pushing it on paths and roads is an absolute dream. There is no problem with pushing it and can even be pushed with one hand if required with no worries of it veering off – it really is fantastic to push.
When it comes to off road, it can be a little difficult sometime if the grass or woodland is a little dense however being as lightweight as it is makes it easier to get back onto a piece of ground that is easier. So what do we think of the pushchair itself overall?
Firstly, as I mentioned before, this pushchair is incredibly easy to push and even Jack can push Olivia round in it with some help. The colour is super bright and we’ve had plenty of compliments about it. The pushchair itself is small and sleek in size and can be transported easily – it fits in the footwell of the rear of the car leaving more space in the boot.
The hood does well to block out the sun. The basket is small – I do usually like a bigger basket but this has ample space for the essentials. The 5 point harness is perfect for keeping baby safely strapped in whilst remaining comfortable.
The school run has been made quicker and easier with the Britax Holiday – its sleek and fast movement lends itself to a fast walking pace so it is brilliant when I am rushing to get Jack to school or to pick him up. It is also perfect for short trips down the shops. I have a larger pushchair which I am reluctant to use for short journeys as it can be quite big and bulky so this makes for the perfect transport for such an occasion.
We’ve used this in many different places in the past month and I must say I am very impressed – easy to store, easy to carry, easy to push, sleek and comfortable for my child, what more could I want? Plus it comes in such lovely colours!
With an RRP of £120, I would definitely recommend picking one of these up if looking for something lightweight compared to the more bulkier models on the market. It is serving me and my family well.
