Our trip to Amsterdam culminated in a visit to see Easywalker at the Nine Months Fair and see the highly anticipated June. I was extremely excited to finally see it as Easywalker have been so secretive for so long about the ins and outs of this fab new pushchair.
Firstly we saw that they have won another award for innovation. A few weeks ago I blogged about the Baby Innovation Awards and asked you all to vote so on behalf of Easywalker I’d like to say a huge thank you for that! The fact that this pushchair has won two awards before it has even been released onto the market promises consumers a great product which rightly deserves the hype it has created.
Now onto the nitty gritty. I was aware that the June was compact but I was surprised to see just how compact! At appromimately 9kg it is extremely light and can easily be picked up with one hand as demonstrated when someone from Easywalker carried it around on his shoulder. It also folds in one piece, no matter what position the seat is in, and fits into the boot of a Mini. The sturdiness of the frame and 4 off terrain wheels should be more suited to a much chunkier pushchair but they fit perfectly with the June styling.
I was delighted to hear that the June will be available with a silver or a black chassis and then a choice of fabrics. The main seat unit is always black but there is a choice between blue, natural and black for the sun canopy and a choice between blue, natural, black, pink or red for the seat liner and foot muff. The liners will be available separately so if you get a bit bored of your pushchair you can simply liven it up with a whole new colour. The seat itself can be parent or world facing and is well padded with a 5 point harness and chest pads. With adding a liner it just oozes comfort. With the pushchair being so slimline and compact I would have expected the seat unit to be a bit on the small side but it looked plenty big enough for both of my chunky boys.
One of my favourite features is the sun canopy. It slides down the back of the seat for folding making it neat and compact when folded. The sun canopy extends to a great height and even though the boys weren’t with me I am certain Spud at 98cm will still be able to sit under it with head clearance. It has great coverage and has a fold out visor for a low sun or for when the seat is reclined.
The June can be a complete travel system with the use of car seat adapters that simply click on to the chassis or with the use of a carrycot that doesn’t require any type of special fitting. The carrycot is a brilliant size and will last the early months. The addition of this makes it an extremely desirable pushchair. There will be no need to downsize when the baby gets a bit bigger because the June as a pushchair is as lightweight and compact as you can get.
