Next up in the Mother&Baby Tried&Tested hot seat, we asked parents to give their opinions on the Joie finiti™ pushchair and ramble™ carry cot, which combine into a travel system.
The finiti and this sleek ramble design is part of Joie’s new signature collection, bringing first class luxury to everyday outings with your baby.
Find out what our testers thought here…
What were your first impressions of the finiti and ramble when you received them?
Fiona: I thought the finiti and ramble were both aesthetically pleasing. The colours (black with brown vegan leather highlights) were stylish and practical for a mama with two boys (baby and toddler). The product was very easy to assemble. I really liked the additions of the storage bag and cup holder as these are normally additional extras you have to purchase separately. The weight of the pram was good and the width and size seemed good for going along the streets in our town as some can be narrow and generally for going in and around shops etc.
Megan: When the Joie Signature Finiti and Ramble pushchair arrived, we were truly excited and absolutely in awe with how beautiful the collection is. We found the colour combination, size and the features perfect and we were in shock with how efficient the whole collection has turned out.
What did you like most about the finiti and ramble?
Hannah: I really liked how easy they are to use. So simple to put everything together using the instructions, and folds very easily which I was really impressed with. It also folds to a nice size leaving extra room in my car boot, my usual pram takes up all the room in my car boot so it was lovely to have extra space for storage in the car.
Laura: I love the little zip pouch as it’s so easy to just put my keys and phone in that compartment and know I’m not going to be searching for them around my changing bag. Even the little cup holder was such a great added extra that I wasn’t expecting. I also like that the bassinet has a handle on the top for easy carrying.
Were you happy with how the products worked as a travel system?
Kendal: Definitely. It works so well. Easy to put up and down and change the different parts.
Kim: They worked perfectly together and it’s so simple to take apart. My car seat also fits which is brilliant. Aria seems really happy and goes to sleep in the ramble.
Is there a feature you would like to see on either the finiti or ramble in the future?
Fiona: I found the Velcro pram cover great for quick access to my baby and my mobile phone which I stored in the carrycot internal pocket. However, my baby was able to push his legs up inside the cover and burst the Velcro open on a number of occasions so maybe press studs or a zip fastener would have been better for me.
Megan: Personally, there is nothing we would add to either the finiti or ramble as they are efficient for us and our baby girl and provide a lot of space for our personal belongings too.
Would you use these products again?
Hannah: Yes I would it was so lovely to use and very easy to push. Everything feels so well made and a bit more luxurious than the standard Joie products.
Kim: Yes I will be using this every time I need to go out now as it makes leaving the house so simple – it folds up nicely and it’s so smooth to push which makes Aria go and stay asleep even on bumpy roads which is a dream!
Would you recommend the finiti and ramble to others?
Kendal: Definitely, infact I already have recommended it.
Laura: Yes, I would recommend all my mummy friends and mums-to-be to consider this travel system.
Have you purchased a Joie product before?
Laura: Yes, I have the Joie 360 car seat, the travel cot and also the 6 in 1 high chair.
Kendal: Yes, the joie swing and car seats.
Do you like Joie Baby as a brand?
Fiona: Yes, I have Joie baby car seats for both my toddler and my baby. I really like their products and trust them.
Hannah: Yes the brand in my experience is always good quality and they offer a good and varied amount of different products at good prices.
What do you think of Joie’s new signature collection?
Kim: The signature collection seems like a high end collection but for a affordable price. The fabrics and quality of the items are lovely and a few people have stopped and asked what pram it is due to it being so stylish!
Megan: We love the whole Joie signature collection and will definitely be getting the car seat from the collection to add to the finite and ramble.
