Our Verdict

This really is a super compact stroller. It's clear to see Chicco have put a lot of thought into designing the ultra portable stroller. Straight out of the box this stroller is really quick and easy to get started, simply click the wheels into place and attach the hood and your pretty much ready to go .

When it comes to looks, this stroller comes in 2 colours (black night or Paprika red), with contrasting frame colour. It looks stylish, well made and nice and compact. The fabrics are nice and soft and appear hardwearing (although time can only tell on this) and the leather effect all in one handlebar provides a smooth comfy steering grip. The fold mechanism is where the real beauty lies in this stroller, it simply concertina's onto itself and basically folds into a really small square footprint that can then be carried over your shoulder using the carry strap attached. The stroller also comes with it's own carry bag for travel purposes.

When it comes to functionality, I have to be honest and say that I would not recommend this as an everyday stroller (and I'm not sure it's been designed with that in mind). Whilst I love how easy this is to fold and unfold and how small and compact it is to transport, our little one who is only 19 months old almost already seems too big. The seat unit has been designed to be small and compact and it's certainly that. Our little one has seemed a tad grumpy whenever I take her out in it and she always looks as though she is hanging in the stroller rather than being comfortably seated.

However if your looking for either an occasional or travel companion stroller then I would say this is definitely a consideration for you. However if you were planning on using this as a stroller for travel, it is worth bearing in mind that the hood on the Minimo is quite small and will offer very little shade for your child. That said, It takes up very little space In the boot and could also fit very easily inside a suitcase if needed. In fact I did take the Minimo with me on a swimming trip and it's so small I was able to lock it away inside a locker at the swimming baths.

The Chicco Minimo comes complete with a handy travel / storage bag and raincover.
