The first time you see the new Arlo from Tutti Bambini, whether it's in a nursery store or going past in the street, we're willing to bet you'll stop and look. Without being a radical departure, it is certainly different enough from other pushchairs on the market to catch the eye.
What stands out most is the sense of space. Here at Pushchair Expert we receive a lot of queries from parents of larger babies and toddlers, keen for recommendations of strollers that won't make them feel squashed in or restricted. We have a feeling they're going to love the Arlo! The seat is not only generous in its dimensions but designed in a flat, open style that will give even the chunkiest little monkey room to stretch out and grow.
Even better, the Arlo allows your family to do the same. Start in single mode and simply purchase an additional tandem seat unit, carrycot or car seat and adaptors when the time is right. Or set up the combination that works for your twins or siblings from the beginning. Even the second seat is spacious!
All that functionality and adaptability comes in a seriously stylish package with some luxury touches that leave you in no doubt you're dealing with a premium set of wheels.
Speaking of which, those wheels come with hard-wearing puncture-proof tyres, all-round suspension for a smooth ride and easy steering, and the finishing flourish of the distinctive Tutti Bambini logo moulded into their structure. That same shape makes its presence felt throughout the chassis, giving the whole buggy a flowing feel.
The Arlo can be folded with one hand and with the seat attached. The forward or parent-facing seat lies flat to make it suitable from birth, though an optional carrycot is also available - and suitable for overnight sleeping. Unusually, the fabrics are bought separately from the pushchair frame in an accessory pack containing the padded seat and hood. This comes in five colour choices, from contemporary neutrals to something more vibrant.Extra parent-friendly features include the height-adjustable leatherette handle and a very good-sized shopping basket with a clever magnetic flap at the back for quick, convenient access.
