Today we have the super exciting Mountain Buggy Nano to review for you.
After changing my car to something a little smaller and updated I found myself in desperate need of a new Pushchair. It was essential to me that it’s fold was compact and could still accommodate an older baby with comfort and most importantly safety at its core.
On my search for a small folding buggy I came across the Nuna luxx Pushchair which we found beautifully made, sturdy and very reasonably priced however it wasn’t compact enough to fit in my boot ( for reference i have a Ford Bmax Ecosport which has a trunk size similar to a ford fiesta) without taking up the whole thing so i researched a bit more and came across the Mountain buggy nano.
Now the Nano retails between £229-£249 depending on which retailer you decide to purchase from and is available in Black, blue (nautical) and red (ruby)
Mountain Buggy nano promises a Lightweight design at 5.9kg which incorporates a compact size when folded, this lightweight travel stroller can easily fit into many carry-on luggage overhead stows for planes, trains and cars, making traveling with your baby easier and much more convenient as it includes a shoulder carry bag included in the box.
Mountain Buggy Nano is suitable from birth with the added addition of the mountain buggy cocoon that is available to purchase separately. The Mountain Buggy Nano holds a max weight of 20kg (44lbs) which should average you at around 4 years of age.

Now the Mountain Buggy Nano really is compact, I put it next to my regular sized handbag for a comparison and I was astounded how they sized up next to one another. The same bag pictured below also fits in the basket which should give you a guide on what kind of changing bag you could store underneath. For such a compact fold it features such a roomy seat with plenty of head room perfect for a growing child to get you through the years and stages.
To fold the Nano you do need both hands so that is worth baring in mind if you do travel on public transport especially with a younger child and need to pop it away. To fold you click two buttons either side of the hood and the top half of the frame folds over, you then squeeze the middle part together with two hands and then it folds into itself and secures itself with an auto lock system.
Mountain Buggy nano features a 5 point safety harness which individually clips together, I personally found it So much easier than others where you have to clip two pieces together first and then clunk them in for example; The one featured on the Nano is super straight forward another bonus is its easy to adjust the length of the straps which is helpful when you’re in a rush.
The Hood is pretty average sized and it does lean against your hands when holding onto the bar if it’s folded up, I cant lie i have used Pushchairs with larger hoods but it does the job and with the Nano being so small you have to be open to compromise.
Recline on the nano is good, easy pull system and has 3 recline postions, i found it easy to put down but slightly harder to get back up with the weight of the child against it but again its a very minor niggle i wanted to mention. The Nano has a ventilation mesh opening secured by velcro when in recline mode, I think this is such a good idea yet super simplistic and cant wait for the weather to warm up to test it out fully. The Nano also has an adjustable footrest perfect for growing and tired legs.
My final thoughts on the Nano is that it is very much an urban families dream with such small fold and one-handed push you could whizz up and down the streets easily. If you’re a family who goes on many outdoor expeditions then im not sure if the tiny wheels could keep up with all terrain on a frequent basis. For my family personally this is just what we needed and i think we would struggle to find another Buggy or Pushchair that can compete with the features the nano has to offer. One minor niggle that frustrates me more than it probably should is the fact the Nano comes WITHOUT a raincover, the company have included special touches such as a carry bag yet lack one of the most universal item that is standard with most higher end buggies, so please address this in a future update as ive been caught in the rain on a few occasions now and am yet to purchase a raincover separately.
Apart from that we have really Loved Reviewing and testing out the Mountain Buggy Nano for you all.If you have anymore questions or ive left something unanswered please leave us a comment or get in touch via one of our other social media outlets, and do let me know if you have found anything that could give the Nano a run for its money.
