Get ready for the hottest stroller on the market right now. If you have been looking for a stylish reversible seat stroller that has a large basket, compact, isn’t heavy and has all terrain wheels then this is the stroller for you. The Nuna Mixx has all this and then some. It is a full size stroller that comes with all terrain wheels and a reversible seat.
Nuna Mixx Overview
The Nuna Mixx is a car seat stroller that provides swivel wheels for maneuverability. It can be folded and easily placed in the trunk, being a compact stroller is great for a new baby or toddlers. It also has a sun canopy for sunshade. However, if you are needing a jogger stroller, the Nuna Mixx may not be for you.
It has a pretty sleek look to the buggy and has a really roomy seat. It also has a deep incline, adjustable handlebar, adjustable leg rest, reversible seat, flip-flop friendly brake, and a no-rethread harness. The basket is also huge. I was able to fit 2 large diaper bags in there as well as my purse. Another one of my favorite features is that since it has a deep incline, I can lift the leg rest up and recline the seat flat so I can let my little one nap in comfort. Another thing about the Mixx is that it doesn’t have that V shape seat that keeps your little one in the sitting position. The seat works from newborn to 50 pounds. There is even a large canopy that has a pop-out sun visor which keeps your little one protected from the glaring sun. It is a premium stroller like the Bugaboo Cameleon 3 and the Stokke Xplory.
You can even use this stroller as part of a travel system simply by replacing the seat with the Nuna Piupa car seat. It doesn’t have any other adapter for other car seats, which is kind of sad.
You really can’t fold this stroller with one hand, but it is really easy to fold and is quite compact for the type of stroller it is. Not to mention, you can actually fold this one up with the seat attached. There is also an automatic lock and you can roll it around like luggage. It also only weighs 25 pounds.
This is a really great stroller, but it isn’t quite perfect. The price is a bit steep at $500, but that is kind of reasonable for a luxury stroller. It glides easily over any bumps and uneven surfaces. I was able to maneuver it easily with 1 hand while it was loaded down.
Nuna Mix Features I love
It has a really large canopy which I love. It is a 3 panel canopy with a pop-out sun visor. You can even zip up the middle panel to make it much smaller. It also has a peek-a-boo window that is made from dark mesh which gives your little one more air circulation on those super humid and hot days while you protect them from the sun. It also has a magnetic closure instead of Velcro, which is much quieter so you don’t have to wake up your little one.
I also love the adjustable handlebar. There are three different positions and it goes to about 42 inches from the ground. It is also covered with rubber instead of foam which tears easily, even though it feels super nice at first. Foam just makes you have to walk around with a luxury stroller that is missing some pieces of foam on the handlebar. I think the rubber does it a lot of justice. It is still comfortable to grip.
The reversible seat comes with a 1 hand lever recline. It has 5 different reclining positions including completely flat. I love that I can put is completely flat and lift the leg rest up so my little one can take a long nap in a bed like environment. Not to mention using the flat recline for a diaper change, which is great for a quick diaper change. You can flip the seat around easily by pushing the levers on the sides and swinging it around to put it in place. You can also replace the seat with the Pipa car seat which is great for the first 6 months after birth when your little one is mainly in a car seat. The seat fabric is also machine washable. It also comes with a 5 point harness that is padded and eventually can be converted into a 3 point harness. The leg rest has 3 positions it can be in.
It also has a huge storage basket. If you are a shopper, then you will love the basket. It can fit just about anything that you put in there.
The wheels are never flat rubber wheels that have front swiveling wheels but they can be locked to go straight. This is literally an all terrain stroller, so it can handle just about any surface you take it on. It also has all wheel suspension, which absorbs the bumps to make the ride for your little one so much smoother.
Another interesting feature about the Nuna Mixx is that it comes with a rain cover. That was quite awesome and it is something that I do carry around with me. It is great for that unpredicted weather when I am out with my little one.
What I don’t like
The only things that I do not like about the Nuna Mixx Stroller is that it will only work with the Nuna Pipa car seat. It would be so much better if there was actually an option for it to become a travel system by using other popular infant car seats. It doesn’t come with accessories. There is actually a very limited amount of accessories for this stroller. The bumper bar and rain cover are about it. There are only 3 colors to choose from. I am a very visual person, so there isn’t a lot of colors to choose from. It would be a bit better for me personally if the fabrics were more colorful with interesting designs and even some patterns. It comes in three colors, Mykonos ( a blue-ish color), Caviar ( a black color) and Slate ( a gray-ish type of color). I have no idea who came up with the interesting color names, but in truth it comes in blue, black or gray. The frame only comes in silver.
The Nuna Mixx does come with a 2 year warranty from your purchase date and you have to be the original owner.
