Mamas & Papas is one of the most well-known baby brands and has been dedicated to helping parents for over 40 years.

They produce a huge range of products from strollers to car seats to baby changing units along with a vast range of other baby necessities.

We have been taking a look at the Mamas & Papas Urbo 2 stroller, which is another model to join their already incredibly popular and stylish range.

Mamas & Papas Urbo 2

The Seat

The seat is reversible giving you the option for forward-facing or rear-facing. This is quite rare in a stroller of this type as they do tend to opt for static seat units.

The Canopy

The canopy on the Urbo 2 is very large and when the seat is reclined, it covers almost all of the baby ensuring that your baby is kept shaded and protected from the sun.

There is also a handy little section of the canopy that is covered in clear plastic allowing you to be able to check on your little one without disturbing them when they are sleeping. 

The Urbo 2 has some amazing features that are a huge step up from previous models. The canopy contains an integrated insect net which would make this stroller perfect for holidays.

Mamas and Papas have also included a removable rain cover. It fits snugly around the pushchair, providing another layer of protection from the elements while still looking sleek and stylish.

The Fold

The Urbo 2 folds to a compact size and also comes with wheels that can be clicked in and out of place. This means that it should easily fit in the trunk of most vehicles.

The handle is also height adjustable meaning that it can be made even more compact. It also means that parents of different heights can easily adjust the height to suit their personal preference.

Handling

The Urbo 2 is a dream to push, making it easy to maneuver through crowds and the added suspension ensures your baby has a smooth ride.

It handles a variety of city tasks with ease while remaining easy to handle and keeping the baby safe and comfortable.

The Urbo 2 also has changed the ride height so that your baby is closer allowing for easier interaction with your baby while on the move.

Safety Straps

This amazing little stroller comes with a tether strap in the center of the handlebar. Like all parents, safety is at the forefront of their mind, and being able to securely attach the stroller to your person provides this additional peace of mind.

Brakes

The Urbo 2 comes with a very sturdy foot brake that continues to hold the stroller in place regardless of the incline that it is on.

Styling

The Urbo 2 is a seriously sophisticated looking stroller. The materials feel high-end and are durable.

The under-seat basket is deceptively large – allowing plenty of room for all the essentials that you need to take with you when you have a little one or even two.

It is available in a range of beautiful and stylish colors along with some of the limited edition versions such as the rose gold range – all of which are right on point.
