Many of you will have read my previous buggy review post but I was bought the Hauck Sport buggy by my mum as a cheaper, smaller alternative to the Maxi-Cosi Mura 3. It was bought for nipping into smaller shops and for keeping in the car as my main buggy is quite big.
It was £25 in Aldi on one of their ‘specials’ weekends and at first I wasn’t too hopeful that it would be ok to use, let alone put Mia in. However I was pleasantly surprised when mum showed me it, it folds down really small so it easily fit in my Vauxhall Corsa’s boot without having to remove anything, it had a great basket underneath which is a brilliant size and is great for getting around smaller shops.
However, the wheels feel quite flimsy and one actually came off after only 4 uses! It did fit back on easily once Mario had got his tools out (not a euphemism!!) so it wasn’t too much of a problem and didn’t put me off using it. I don’t know if I would trust the buggy on a big walk over any kind of rougher terrain than the pavement though and it’s quite a low sitting buggy so feels every bump. It also doesn’t come with a rain cover but for the price that’s not an issue as you can pick rain covers up fairly cheaply anyway. Mia did love it compared to her big buggy and as soon as I got it out she desperately clambered into it!
On the whole the Hauck Sport buggy did surprise me, I wasn’t expecting much from it and once the wheel came off I was a bit worried but it is a great cheaper buggy for times when you need something quick and to-hand. I wouldn’t have it as my main buggy by any means but it’s a great 2nd buggy to have around.
