As a self admitted addict to all things Prams and Pushchairs it was without question that somehow the new mamas and papas armadillo flip xt would arrive at my door. The Armadillo Flip XT arrived this morning as i sat eagerly awaiting its arrival, i almost hugged the delivery guy when he turned up at 10am ( hurrah to early morning deliveries!;) Thankfully Jacob was playing happily in his Jumperoo and Frankie loves helping so i do admit i opened it as soon as i got it through the door..
Mamas and Papas Armadillo Flip XT is the newest Upgrade to the Armadillo Family and the most stylish in my opinion. It is Available in Navy ( my Choice), Teal Tide, Mulberry, Sand Dune, Black Jack and a Special Edition Liberty ( this one does come with a heftier price tag.)
Here’s how it all arrived boxed nicely, now to find a way of getting everything out without the help of some else was a bit tricky thankfully with a little help from a weirdly angled leg we managed to get everything out.
Now the assembly, Attach the brake ( Check)√ click in all the wheels (Check)√ unfold pram or should i say unflip? (check)√. There was the situation of popping the basket out and pulling part of it over the brake wire which i found incredibly difficult for some reason but managed it eventually so (Check)√
