Imagine a pushchair that you can use from birth, that’s sleek and stylish and is compact enough to fit in the boot of a small family car. The Casualplay Kudu 4 pushchair is Little Mr’s latest ride and having used it for shopping and local trips around town, the Kudu 4 has got to be a serious contender in the pushchair leagues.
The Kudu 4 can be used from birth with its fully lie flat reclining seat, up until baby reaches 15kg in weight (roughly around 3 years old) The chassis of the Kudu 4 is aluminium so feels very sturdy to push. I love how the seat clicks onto the frame and can be used both rearfacing and parent facing. Little Mr is now at the age where he wants to see what’s going on and likes to face forward so it’s nice to have the option. The seat on the pushchair can be easily moved up and down to suit the situation. Little Mr has enjoyed sitting up right in the pushchair on our walks but it can be easily reclined (in 4 positions) perfect for tired toddlers who want to enjoy the smooth ride or have a little nap. The seat also has an adjustable calf and leg rest which allows you to tailor the pushchair to suit the needs of your little one.
The wheels on the Kudu 4 have been designed for busy parents with easy manoeuvrability. The front swivel wheels can be locked but I do love having them unlocked and free so that I can push the Kudu 4 around with one hand whilst walking the dog. Good to know – the rear wheels are puncture proof and are capable of heavy duty use!
The Kudu 4 has a fantastic hood which is easily pulled down to suit the weather. I love the peek-a-boo window so you can keep an eye on your little one or give reassurance to them on a walk. The hood pulls down quite a bit which is brilliant to keep the sun off little one’s faces making a walk in the sunshine a breeze.
The handlebar on the Kudu 4 is extendable and I do love a single handlebar. It’s easier for me to push when walking with the dog and a tired toddler. The basket on the pushchair is fantastic, rather roomy with brilliant access, it really is easy to use. The rain cover is an essential in my opinion so it’s good to see it included, perfect for the typical British summertime. I love that the Kudu 4 is compatible with Casualplay’s range of accessories with the click and lock system and can be used with the Baby 0+ and Sono car seats making it a fantastic travel system.
We have been reviewing the Kudu 4 Aluminium chassis with the Jeans colourway, a beautiful denim fabric perfect for stylish Mums and Dads.
We’ve only used the Kudu 4 for our short walks so we’re hoping to get out and about for longer walks during the next few weekends to really give the pushchair a good workout. I’d like to try it out over Sandwell Valley and see how it handles on rougher terrain rather than just on the pavements of the Midlands.
