Ickle Bubba are building on their reputation for producing stylish products for little ones at affordable prices with the launch of five new travel systems and a new i-Size car seat. We were excited to take a closer look at the star of the show, the sophisticated Ickle Bubba Stomp Luxe.
If you’re shopping for an all-terrain stroller for your newborn, baby or toddler, the Stomp Luxe from Ickle Bubba is a brilliant choice. The Stomp V3 has made an exciting transition to the Stomp Luxe, bringing together the key elements of the iconic V3, with a fresh look and giving even more value.
Made from luxurious fabrics in a range of stunning colours, the Stomp’s leatherette handlebar gives a stylish edge to an already sleek looking stroller. We love that the luxe fabrics, handlebars and the chassis of your pushchair can be customised in a range of neutral colours, so you can really make your pram purchase your own.
The Stomp all-in-one bundle offers first-time parents the full package, from birth to toddlerhood for a pushchair that will see you through – without the expensive price tag. Suitable from birth, the Stomp Luxe includes a carrycot and seat fabrics that zip on and off the single pushchair frame giving you a more sustainable product that requires less storage space.
The Ickle Bubba Stomp Luxe arrives in one big box, and although it’s large, it’s not overly heavy, and it’s pretty easy to assemble. The front wheels click quickly into place, while an easy action foot brake pops onto the chassis for the back wheels to slot into. The carrycot unfolds out of the box and attaches to the chassis with complete ease. The parts you do have to assemble, are really intuitive, with no instructions needed (although of course, instructions do come with the box!).
First impressions: the Stomp Luxe in khaki and tan really reminded me of the Stokke Trailz we used to have when my first daughter was born, both quality pushchairs of a similar shape and size.
The Stomp Luxe incorporates the Stomp’s iconic stylish hood shape, but enriched with luxury fabrics that ooze quality. There’s an adjustable height handle and a large and easily accessible shopping basket so you can take all your essentials with you. Access to the basket isn’t compromised by the direction of travel of the carrycot or seat unit, as both can world and parent face, offering you flexibility from day one.
The carrycot plus safety mattress gives your most precious cargo a dreamy space to lie flat and snooze, while the seat unit with 5-point safety harness offers a 4-position seat recline, for seamless, uninterrupted naps on the go.
When it comes to purchasing an all-terrain pushchair, or any pushchair for that matter, I have one hard and fast rule to live by: make sure the stroller’s tyres aren’t air-filled, unless you have roadside assistance for your buggy. It can be nigh on impossible to get your pushchair back home without help if you run into a flat when you’re out and about. Yep, I’m talking from experience.
Good news. The Stomp Luxe’s foam wheels are puncture-proof, and the rear rubber wheels have a thick tread with an easy quick-release for cleaning or storage, while the self-locking swivel front wheels offer you more control while you stroll.
The stroller is equipped with exceptional front and rear suspension, so it will endure off-road brambles and sharp stones, while giving your little one the smoothest ride, whatever the adventure.
Get even more luxe for your bucks!
The Ickle Bubba Stomp Luxe bundle comes with everything you need to get strolling, including a gorgeous black changing rucksack and mat. Keep your little one cosy and dry with the pushchair’s rain cover, coordinating apron, and foot warmer and shield them from the elements with the pushchair’s large stylish UPF 50+ hood. There’s even a pair of car sunshades to protect them from the glare of the sun in the summer months! Now, that’s really thinking of everything.
The Stomp Luxe 2-in-1 premium pushchair retails at £449.00. To find out more, click here.
