Review: Liberty’s Exclusive Collaboration with Mamas & Papas

Mamas & Papas have teamed up with Liberty London to create a stunning collection of strollers with matching accessories. These buggies are so stylish even the glossy fashion mags such as Grazia are raving about them! I was offered the opportunity to review the Urbo² Travel System which has had a serious makeover for the new collection with luxury leather handles, printed chest pads and the distinctive and iconic Liberty London peacock feather print. Where better to give it the first test drive than Hampton Court Palace on a recent family day out, check out pics and my feedback below… 

Anastasia is almost 7 months old so we went straight into the stroller seat but for a new born you can get a truly beautiful special edition chrome bassinet in matching print.

The stroller has adjustable handle bars to suit any height and the groove on the handle is perfect to keep my essential buggy clip to hang my nappy bag.

You really can’t knock the look of this premium buggy, the shiny chrome, tanned leather handles and quilted seat really are the ultimate in luxury baby gear. IMG_2812

The seat has several positions so that even a tiny baby can lie flat when sleeping and older babies can be upright for sight seeing!

The edge of the seat can be lifted for extra comfort to support Anastasia’s legs  until her little feet can reach the chrome foot rest beneath, and in this section of the seat is a hidden zip to keep the mosquito net – they have literally thought of everything! (Excuse the extremely windswept hair!)

The basket is just big enough for all of your essentials and is shallow enough to reach everything easily.  As with most of the Mamas & Papas strollers, the hoods are really deep so even laying almost flat, Anastasia has plenty of shelter from wind and sun. IMG_2678

With other small children in tow, it is essential for me to have a buggy that is easy to push and navigate single handed and as you can see, even on a stoney terrain it is no problem at all. IMG_2762

Every detail screams luxury, even the product name is on a leather label!

Whilst this is marketed as a city stroller, the option for locking the front wheels makes pushing off road just as easy.

The folding mechanism is so easy, it quite literally collapses without any fuss making it very easy to lift into the boot of the car and the small city wheels mean this buggy will comfortably fit into very small spaces.

Overall I am massively impressed with the Urbo² Travel System, I wish I could have had more use out of the bassinet as this really is the ultimate in new born luxury. And whilst I have previously avoided such bold prints, the Liberty design is so iconic that there is no risk of it going out of style. I absolutely love this buggy and feel very proud pushing Anastasia around in it 🙂

There’s also children’s fashion and homewares in vintage Liberty prints available at Mamas & Papas, some of which will be making it in to next month’s Christmas gift guide, for now – you can check out the full collection here.
