The Omnio is a stroller that thinks it's a backpack. To put it simply it easily folds down into a wearable product making it ideal for adventure and travel loving families. It is perfect for families who are always on the move. The stroller has been designed for ages 6 months old to a maximum weight of 22kg.
I was instantly drawn to it's design. I think it's a very smart, modern looking stroller which is available in 3 colours - black, red and a fab turquoise colour (which was my personal favourite). You will also be able to purchase some matching accessories which are a changing bag, insulated bottle bag and a stroller bag. All can be cleverly fitted to the stroller which is a dream come true for any parent. The less we have to carry the better.
The stroller comes with a fully detachable rain cover and sun hood to suit all weather conditions.
Hubby being the engineer that he is was immediately drawn to the wheels of the stroller and noticed that they were different to the norm. They have a series of curved rollers which means the wheel can not only spin but it can roll sideways. If i'm honest this technical explanation went over my head but what I will say is that when I had a go at pushing the stroller it handled extremely well. It was incredibly lightweight and agile and easily moved whichever way you wanted it to go.
They are also puncture proof which is great for all terrain surfaces.
The stroller easily folds down into a backpack which you can then carry leaving you hands free to attend to your child. This is such a great feature as I can't begin to tell you how many times Eva used to want to get out of her stroller when she could walk, leaving me to battle with looking after her whilst pushing the stroller at the same time.
This feature is also ideal for all types of travel. I imagine it would be very useful on train and tube journeys. It's also handy for plane travel. As much as i've always wanted Eva to stay in her stroller around an airport, the excitement is always too much for her and she has to run about, once again leaving me pushing the stroller and trying desperately to multi task.
When the stroller is on your back it isn't too heavy. No heavier than carrying a change bag.
The size of it folded down, has a great appeal to me. It folds to 53 x 41 x 28cm. We actually had to change our car when we first had Eva as we couldn't get any pushchair to fit in the boot. It will be able to be stored away neatly in a cupboard, under a desk or in a boot without taking up too much room.
