It seemed quite stocky and bulky at first but when I played around with it, I realised that it's actually a very stable and sturdy stroller. The rear two wheels are bigger than the front ones and all of them are alligned in such a way as to minimise the risk of toppling. Since the front wheels are quite close together, it can be difficult sometimes to make a sharp turn without the wheels turning in different directions, making manoeuvring a bit of a challenge. Due to the strong central chassis of the stroller, it is thankfully difficult to cause accidental deformations and, overall, the whole thing is compact and safe. Additionally, the rear wheels have footbrakes which can be applied to anchor the stroller and these are generally very effective on flat, even surfaces but less so on grass. It can be folded vertically and since it only weighs around 7 kg, it becomes very convenient to carry around and store. To fold it, you simply release a clickable catch at the bottom of the stroller, and this allows the whole thing to fold into itself. There is nothing in particular to lock the folded stroller into position but once folded, it generally stays that way until a force is applied to open it back up. Over time, I could probably imagine this function failing so a fold lock would probably have been a good idea.
There are adjustable straps attached to the back of the stroller which, when the stroller is folded, can be used to carry it as a backpack. Not a bad idea but the rear wheels do tend to protrude into your back as you're carrying it though. It's suitable for kids from 6 months up and we used it regularly until Jack was 3, with the published maximum weight being 15kg. In reality, you could probably fit up to 20kg without damaging the stroller. A cute little adjustable seat belt is present in the seat, although I've never felt the need to use it because the seat itself is designed in a very secure way. Quite a few components of the seat and side can be adjusted slightly to accommodate different sized children, which is a great bonus if you plan on keeping it for future brothers and sisters! It also allows you to adjust the seat so that your baby/toddler's legs don't get caught on the floor. Being only 7kg, it's very light and steering, with or without a child in place, is generally very easy and controlled. The seat is extremely secure and comfortable, with a bit of padding near the back to make it easier for little ones to fall asleep. There's a large canopy which can be extended to quite some extent to protect the little occupant inside from the elements but the only drawback here is that you don't have a 'window' to look into while steering.
Overall, it's been a very useful purchase and certainly one that represents good value for money.

Hi! This is a review of the Quicksmart Easyfold Stroller, which we bought for my younger boy Jack a few years ago. We got it from Argos for around £130 (I think), which is a bit expensive for a stroller but something we were prepared for given the problems a lack of a stroller caused us with Jack's big brother. It arrived in a pristine condition, very well packaged, alongside a catalogue of documents and user guides, which I didn't really bother to read because the stroller itself came assembled. Since it's a foldable stroller, all I had to do was unfold it and the whole thing was ready to be used.
