Hello and thanks for visiting my review of the Armadillo City Slim Folding Pushchair, from Mamas&Papas. I will be looking at the pros and cons of this pushchair and why it is different from regular pushchairs. We will look at the specifications and design and importantly how it handles with your little one in it.

A durable high performance model.

We will ask how it differs from other similar brands and of course whether it is worth the price tag. It is my goal that by the time you have read this review through o the end, you will have enough information to know if the Armadillo is right for you and your baby.

What are the specifications of this folding pushchair?

So as you might expect from a well known and trusted brand like Mamas&Papas;, the Armadillo is well put together, and is more durable than the slimline look suggests.

. The Armadillo measures at height: 99cm x width: 55cm x length: 79cm.

. It’s folded measurements are height: 72.5cm x width: 50cm x length: 33cm

. It is extremely lightweight at only 7.3kg exactly.

. It has a large folding hood with a UFO 50+ to protect from the suns rays.

. Also, this pushchair comes with an underneath shopping basket, rain cover and cup holder all included.

Let’s look at the key features of this pushchair.

The Armadillo City Silm Folding Pushchair is designed for performance and convenience. It’s lightweight frame is still strong enough to support your baby and be easily maneuverable, while at the same time offering your child an extra spacious seat, despite the slimline design.

A large seat in a slimline design

It is perfect for busy metropolitan life, hence the word ‘city’ in the name. Now aren’t all Pushchairs foldable I hear you ask? Well sure, but not quite like this. There is a trend now in the busy world we live in to create new models of strollers and pushchairs that don’t just fold, but are highly compacted and easy to carry when you fold them.

Armidillo City Slim Folding Pushchair from Mamas&Papas

And this pushchair is no exception to this new design concept. Being so lightweight and easily compactable means that it something that should fit in the rear of your car, or be easily carried on board a train or even a plane should you be planning to travel with your baby.

How does the Armadillo compare to other similar pushchairs?

Well now this is a good question, I have looked into similar foldable compact pushchairs and their different features.

Although there seems to be a new trend of highly compactable and lightweight easy to carry strollers and pushchairs emerging in the market, I struggled to find a brand as trusted as Mamas&Papas with, in my opinion a fair price tag attached. In fact if you are thinking of choosing a different brand than the Armadillo, then I would recommend reading another product review of the Ergobaby Metro Compact City Stroller.

So what about the cost. Is it worth the price?

So the crunch question of how much does this pushchair retail for and is it worth the investment. The answer in my opinion is yes, if your looking for a pushchair that can be used from the birth of your baby right upto when they’re 15kg or around 3years old, when they will be rather walking than in a pushchair anyway.

Use the Armidillo from birth

And if your in a busy area or not, just the convenience and ease of carry that the Armadillo gives you, makes this pushchair from Mamas&Papas well worth the investment. And the that is usually at the £189.00 mark, which on its own is very reasonable, but right now you can get your hands on the Armadillo City Slim Folding Pushchair for a discounted £141.00. A real bargain in my view.

My summary

So here is the thing about each new generation of pushchair, they all do something a bit better than the previous one, and this pushchair is at the front of the new ‘compact city’ design that so many top brands are coming out with. And Mamas&Papas; are not beginners in creating quality products for your baby to enjoy.

They are putting in the basket, rain cover and cup holder inclusive with this purchase, and you will be hard pressed to find a comparable brand with a similar price tag, especially if you get in now and pick up the Armadillo while Mamas&Papas  have their sale on.

    Great review of the product it was very informative and very detailed.  I am not shopping for a stroller now but if and when I do so this review would definitely be my go-to.  

    I specifically like the detailed specification on this brand it literally opened up the stroller before me I thought that was brilliant. I am sold and would go out and buy one today.

    All the best in your endevours.

    Oh I’m in love with this straight away after reading your review! Especially with the lightweight and the size of it after being folded!  I bought mine during a sale , it is heavy, bulky and very basic. The price is ok after discounted! I should seriously consider to buy this for my daughter and also for me. I hope there are other colour to choose from. I will share with my close friend to check it out 🙂

    1. Kenneth Glossop says:

      Hi I’m glad you liked the design and look of the Armidillo. It is a very well made pushchair and at such a great price. Thanks, Kenny 

  3. Renton says:

    Great Review! I like the fact that this pushchair has useful features for mom and dad like a shopping basket. The rain cover and cu holder are also a nice touch. I think that a technology progresses these chairs will become even more compact and streamline.

    If we are talking about today though, I think this chair will be more than capable of doing a great job, of protecting your precious cargo.

      Cxoo, I’m glad you liked my review. It is why I created this site. Thanks for commenting, Kenny 

  4. Ty says:

    These are really cute, I just wish we could sit in them see if they’re actually comfortable for the baby! 

    This was a really good review, it seems like it can get the job done and put the babies straight to sleep. Glady the price range is pretty affordable as well. That makes this product even better.

    1. Kenneth Glossop says:

      Yes I think these have some great features and for a seemingly low price too. 

  5. Lauren Kinghorn says:

    Hi Kenny, Oh yeah, you had me at Lightweight. And slim-folding. I know it sounds weird but I had to get my stroller in and out of the car almost daily.  You’re not always walking straight out of your house and off somewhere, you want to get to a shopping mall, the Promenade, Museum or Aquarium first, and then walk. I don’t think they sell Armadillos in South Africa though. Do you know if these ship to South Africa?

    1. Kenneth Glossop says:

      Hi that’s great that you liked to review. I will look into alternatives that are available to your country and try and do a review on them in the near future. Thanks, Kenny

    This is a great review,this pushchair is very easy to use and very convenience and ease of carrying babies.I have a friend whose baby is very troublesome, she just have to put her baby inside for been disturbing her from working. I wish to get one when i give birth.Its help papa and mamas to do what ever they wish to do so has to makes their works easier for not been disturbed for doing domestic works. Thanks! 

    1. Kenneth Glossop says:

      Hi and thanks for the comments. I appreciate it. Yes Mamas and Papas are a well trusted brand and that helps. Kenny 

  7. Matthew says:

    Ah, this slim folding pushchair will be perfect to buy for my sister as she has just given birth to my gorgeous little niece, Seren. She has a laydown pram which is huge but having something like this would be ideal if she wanted to take her out for the day in the car.

    I have 4 children myself, all boys, so my pram pushing days are behind me but every pram my wife and I got for my boys was always from Mamas&Papas; because they have some quality products that any parent can trust and rely on, and this Armadillo model looks like it will live up to their brand name.

    Does this pram model only come in the Egg Blue colour or is there other options to choose from?

    1. Kenneth Glossop says:

      Hi thanks for sharing this idea with your sister. And yes it does indeed come in different colours too, so there is plenty of choice for you to choose from. Kenny 

  8. Letsret says:

    You have me sold on this pushchair, I have a grandchild coming soon and this is the perfect gift for my daughter.  I like that it is so light and compact and will be an absolute must for the train as they do travel quite a bit by train.  Not to mention the price, I have been looking at others and for what this push chair offers and the price I think it is by far the best.  Thanks for letting us know.

    1. Kenneth Glossop says:

      Thanks for the reply and I am in agreement with you here that this is a very good pushchair that just ticks all the boxes for a superb price. 

  9. Chrissie Spurgeon says:

    Hi Kenny

    This pushchair sounds ideal for most people in my opinion.

    The fact that it can be used from birth to three years is a real bonus, and I think that the price tag would certainly appeal to me if I were looking for a pushchair at the moment.

    Does it really not need any adaptation for use with a newborn?

    In my opinion, you would be hard-pressed to find a better completely foldable and light weight pushchair, and as you say, Mamas and Papas is an established and trusted brand.

    I would think this is a great buy!

    Many thanks for your informative post.

    Chrissie 🙂

    1. Kenneth Glossop says:

      Hi and thanks for getting back and asking your question. No it is totally ready to be used from newborn and is still very snug for the baby.

  10. Nkhosingiphile says:

    The fact that it is portable , light in weight , can protect my child from the sun, it means i really do need this. The fact that i dont have a car means nothing , i can simply use this to go with my child where soever i want to gowithout being exhausted. It is very convenient.

    1. Kenneth Glossop says:

      Hi and thank you for the really helpful comment and feedback. I’m glad you agree with me that this pushchair is a very suitable product for just about any family to consider buying.

    1. Kenneth Glossop says:

      Hi and thanks for sharing some feedback today. I appreciate it a great deal and I agree that this is a pushchair that can beysonmany people. Thanks, Kenny 

  12. Dianne says:

    This pushchair looks perfect. 

    For my first child I went for a pram that converted from either the pram or having the car seat attached directly to the frame, it was popular at the time and being able to just attach the car seat to the frame, from the car,  without disturbing the baby was great. 

    But second time around around I went for one very similar to this and in my opinion it was a much better purchase. It lasted from birth to three and was so much easier to collapse and put in the boot. Also fantastic for taking on holiday.

    1. Kenneth Glossop says:

      Hi and thanks for the reply, for sure it’s grest to have convenience with your trip and this pushchair will offer you that no doubt. I hope you will come back and share your experiences with me again. Kenny
