We were given the opportunity to test and review the Chicco Ohlala2 stroller in black, which Chicco kindly gifted to us.
The Ohlala2 is suitable from birth to 3 years for babies and children who weigh up to 15kg.
The stroller is super lightweight at just 3.8kg, making it the perfect choice for busy parents on the go, perfect for city living where getting on and off public transport can be difficult with a heavy, bulky pram.
The Ohlala2 has a super easy, one-handed folding mechanism which takes me just 3 seconds to fold down.
When folded the Ohlala2 is just 30 x 72 x 46cm and is freestanding, so great for households where storage space for a pram is an issue.
The stroller lies completely flat making it perfect for newborns and older babies and toddlers napping on the go, the one handed, multi-position recline adjustment makes it super easy and quick for parents to lay baby down to sleep or sit them up to see the world around them.
The Chicco Ohlala2 has an adjustable footrest for baby’s comfort, as well as a 5-point safety harness with padded shoulder and crotch pads.
The handle height is 100cm, which is a good comfortable height for both me and Garry to push, we are both around 5’7 tall.
I like the solid joint handle which along with the lockable, front swivel wheels, makes the stroller super easy to manoeuvre even with one hand – everyone knows how much I love my coffee, so a stroller that I can push with one hand while I drink my coffee with the other is a winner for me!
The linked brakes on the back wheels of the stroller are very smooth and easy to operate with just one foot.
The stroller comes with a detachable and expandable hood, which is a good size to shield baby from sun and wind and is one of the best I’ve seen on a stroller of this size.
There is a detachable bumper bar, which we didn’t need to remove to get Adalena, who is almost two, into the seat, and is handy for hanging toys and buggy books on to keep her entertained on the go.
The stroller comes complete with a raincover and average sized shopping basket underneath, which is perfect for a few groceries or a small changing bag holding baby’s essentials.
Due to the super lightweight design of this stroller you cannot hang bags on the handle without it tipping up, so it’s perfect for bits and pieces but wouldn’t be a good idea if you are doing lots of shopping.
Adalena looked comfortable in the Chicco Ohlala2 and was happy enough during our walk around the village and visit to the local shops.
Overall, I have enjoyed using the Chicco Ohlala2, which gives a comfortable ride for both parent and baby and is perfect for nipping in and out on daily errands, school runs and trips to the local shop. It is also great for saving space in the car on day trips as it folds down so small – perfect for cars with very small boots, it fits comfortably in our Hyundai i10 boot.
The Chicco Ohlala2 retails at £99.99 and comes with a 2 year guarantee.
It is available from reputable baby retailers such as Mothercare, Argos and Amazon.
