Reviews of my favourite travel gadgets

This is an overview, after I did extensive research on strollers, which I’ll update with my review once it arrives.

Xiaomi Stroller Features

Design, Frame & Seat

Xiaomi stroller offer a very stylish and slick design with nice, decent color options. The high-strength aluminum alloy frame is both light & sturdy, the load-bearing parts are made of high quality carbon structural steel. It is stated that the key structural parts are imported from Belgium and Switzerland.

The 3-segment adjustable canopy is made of a four-sided elastic fabric and as stated available in 3 different color options. This color also reflects on the inside rim of the wheel. The canopy is sun protective (UPF50+) and isolates 95% of ultraviolet rays.

The seat cushion is made of a skin-friendly, antistatic & antibacterial “class A standard” fabric. The cloth is removable to wash it easily. Your baby is secured with a five-point seat belt with one button release.

Even tough it is stated that Xiaomi Stroller is suited for babies aged 0-36 month, because the seat can recline to an almost flat surface, I use a bassinet for newborns. I’ll switch to Xiaomi buggy when my kid is aged 6 month and can sit upright on his own. Hence it’s a nice feature to recline the seat if your child falls asleep. The seat reclines stepless to an almost flat surface.

Review

As mentioned, I haven’t received Xiaomi Travel Stroller for testing, but my friend Sami did and he made an unboxing and review video. The video is in Chinese, but you get to see the Stroller in action. I also had a chat with him which I want to share. If you have additional questions, let me know in the comments and I’ll forward them to Sami.

 

First feature Sami mention is shock absorption of the wheels and Sami is thrilled how good it works. According to him Xiaomi Stroller is very lightweight, easy to fold and compact – ideal for travel. Even tough he thinks the stroller looks terrific it doesn’t feel super high quality, especially the canopy. Sami would prefer a bar to secure the baby additionally to the 5-point seat belt. Overall Xiaomi Stroller is not his main stroller choice, but great for travelling.
