About this deal

However, the manual includes warranty information, which is two years for manufacturing defaults, and head office details should you need them. As the buggy lies flat, Chico states the OhLaLa 2 is suitable from birth to 15kg, but I wouldn’t feel comfortable putting a newborn baby in the pushchair. While too wide (at 78cm) to fit through Liz’s narrow front door, the Echo Twin is still compact enough to tackle most doorways. The handlebars are padded for comfort but not extendable, though they are a decent height which suited Liz’s tall partner (6ft 3). The material is snug to the frame, ensuring no gaps for small fingers to get caught, and the seats nicely padded.

Although product information is regularly updated, Aldi is unable to accept liability for any incorrect information. If you are using an infant car seat, we suggest looking at a stroller that accepts the infant car seat.Fever in little ones is often unexpected and always unwelcome, especially at the weekend, causing anxiety and difficulties for parents. While not a pram geared towards regular off-roading, the Echo Twin would be more than suitable for urban life and regular trips to the park. The individual hoods, on the other hand, are fairly basic and offer no UV protection, only just covering the top of a child’s head in low winter sun. While the buggy can be pushed one-handed, it’s difficult to steer, which is mostly down to the split handlebar.

At Chicco, we know this is a time when time is most precious, and you should be able to savor it all. The Echo Twin doesn’t claim to have a one-handed fold, as you see on the likes of the iCandy Peach 6, but with a bit of practice it can be done. There’s no messing around with adapters or seats – you simply open it up, strap your children in and off you go.While it feels passably sturdy on the road, grass and on gravel paths, we didn’t attempt any rougher terrain with it. The black frame is also practical for busy families, though there are several plastic components, and the hood feels a bit flimsy. It’s folded by pressing 2 buttons on the handle – it is possible to do this with one hand and while I found this slightly hard to master, both home testers from the 2020 MFM Awards said they thought it was surprisingly simple, and how useful of a feature it is, especially when carrying a baby in your other arm.

Both pushchairs fold down quickly and easily (and can be done with just one hand), but the Babyzen Yoyo comes with a shoulder strap to carry it, which is a useful extra.

The Echo Twin has a small carry handle, which is helpful for lifting, but it’s worth noting that the buggy comes in heavier than anticipated at 13. We tested the seats with one and both children inside, using a heavy bag to see how it would cope with a second toddler and a 2kg bag in place of a newborn. While basic in design, the colours and materials are practical and sturdy, and should last up to age four.

The Chicco OhLaLa 2’s major selling point is its weight – easily one of the lightest buggies on the market at 3. One of the home testers in the 2020 MFM Awards said it was a very bumpy ride and wouldn’t recommend it for long outdoor walks. While suitable from birth and safe to do so, our tester, mum of two Liz, didn’t feel the seat reclined flat enough to give full support to her five-month-old baby. As it’s so light, it feels like it could easily lose control, which is the downside to having such a lightweight buggy.

After a week of testing, covering around 10 miles, the wheels looked used, but the material and chassis were left in good condition. The recline feels secure and smooth when in lie-flat mode, so it doesn’t disturb a sleeping child, and the harness can be adjusted for children of different ages. Because the Echo Twin is very user-friendly, you’re unlikely to need the instructions again once you're set up.
