The Nuna has just released a new stroller called Tavo or as they call it at Nuna “One Click Wonder”. The Tavo 2016 is very similar to the popular Mixx2 model, but is less expensive and more compact. While it does not have the reversible seat, it can be easily turned into a travel system with a Nuna Pipa infant car seat without any additional adapters. You can just click the car seat right into the frame. BTW, for 2017 it stayed the same.
Just like the Mixx2, Tavo has a very deep one-hand recline that goes to almost flat position suitable for a newborn. The roomy seat can accommodate a child up to 50 lbs. The canopy is to die for! It’s large with a pop out sunvisor plus for the extra protection it has a hidden dream drape that will protect your child completely even with the seat fully reclined. There is a large peekaboo window with magnetic closure and a zipped in mesh panel for better air circulation.
It also features adjustable leg rest, flip-flop-friendly brake, all-wheel suspension, swing-away bumper bar, adjustable handle bar and a large easy to access basket. The maneuverability is really great. It’s very easy to push with one hand. The fold was very easy and compact. The stroller just collapses into itself and locks. All this goodness weighs 24 lbs which is only slightly lighter than Mixx2 model. This is your standard everyday stroller that you can use for everything from long walks at the park to running errands around town. The wheels are a good size and can tackle all of the mummy terrain.
I gave this model 5 out of 5 stars because I think this is a GREAT stroller that could be your ONLY stroller. It can easily get you from the newborn to the toddler stage. The one advantage that Tavo has over Mixx is that it has much roomier seat with the canopy sitting higher on the frame at 25″.
As you well know most of the reversible seat strollers tend to have a smaller seat and lower canopies that are not very comfortable for a toddler. The Tavo has a lot of growing room. I was also very impressed with the affordable price of $349. Great deal! I have to tell you that I really like Nuna quality. All of there products are very well made and feel very solid. The fabrics are soft and durable. I never get that plasticy or flimsy feeling from their products. The only thing I would change about Tavo is it’s weight. I think 24 lbs is a little heavy for non-reversible seat stroller. The 20 lbs would be a more reasonable weight for this stroller.
The Tavo is available right now and can be purchased for around $349. It comes in four colors and includes a bumper bar. You can also get with a Nuna Pipa infant car seat, one of my favorite car seats by the way, for only $649. It’s funny how they are releasing stroller for 2016 in 2015 very similar to the car companies.
-Huge canopy. The canopy is really large and it has a pop out sunvisor called “dream drape” that will provide your child with full coverage even when the seat is fully reclined. What I like about this dream drape is that it’s a knit fabric so it still provides great air circulation while blocking the sun. When not needed, the dream drape can be zipped back in. BTW, Mixx model does not have the dream drape. It also has a large dark mesh peekaboo window with magnetic closure. This is one of the best canopies on the market.
-Adjustable handle bar. The telescoping handle bar goes from 38″ and up to 42″ from the ground. I measured! LOL.
-Roomy seat. The roomy seat is 13″ wide with 19″ seat back and a measurement of 25″ from the back of the seat to the top of the canopy. The seat can accommodate a child from birth and up to 50 lbs. This seat will last you through the toddlers years with no problem. The fabric from the seat is removable and machine washable. I really like the quality of the materials they’ve used on the canopy and the seat. It’s very soft, but is very durable at the same time.
Another cool feature about the seat is that you can create a bassinet-like environment for your baby by lifting up the leg rest and using two pieces of material hidden underneath the leg rest to enclose the sides of the stroller. You just clip each piece to the side of the frame. If you fully recline the seat, you baby will have a cozy and safe place to rest. And if it’s cold outside, you can put a warm blanket on top creating almost a foot muff.
-Deep recline. It has a very deep recline that goes to almost a flat position suitable for a newborn. There are 4 recline positions that are operated by a one-hand lever recline.
-Mesh in the back. The back of the canopy can be unzipped to expose a dark mesh window for better air circulation on a hot day. You can also unzip the canopy in the back completely.
-5 point harness. It has adjustable padded 5-point harness with a center release buckle.
-Swing-away bumper bar. INCLUDED! The swing-away bumper bar is removable and can be used with the Pipa car seat to transform this stroller into a travel system.
-Adjustable leg rest. The adjustable leg rest has three positions: up, straight,and down.
-Large basket. The basket is a great size and very easy to access by bringing he frame of the basket down. How cool is that? I wish all baskets would do that. So you can get to your stuff even if the seat is fully reclined. There is also a small zipper pocket in the basket that you can use to store your small items like keys, or phone.
-Flip-flop-friendly brake. The large one-step flip-flop-friendly brake is located between rear wheels. Very easy to use!
-Never-flat wheels. It rolls on four EVA foam never-flat wheels with 7.5″ wheels in the front and 10″ wheels in the back. The front wheels are swivel but can be locked straight for rougher terrain. This is NOT an all-terrain stroller, but can handle some bumps on the road. The wheels are an average size for your standard take-me-everywhere kind of model. This could be probably your ONLY stroller that you can take to the park for a long walk, grocery shopping, mall, or traveling.
-All-wheel suspension. This buggy has all-wheel suspension that helps to absorb some of the bumps.
-One-hand fold. This model has very easy one hand fold. I really like that this stroller collapses right away into the fold and locks. There is no need to jump on top of it trying to make it smaller so that automatic lock finally clicks. None of that. You just fold it down and it clicks right away. You can see from the overview video how easy it is. It also can be rolled behind you like a luggage. BTW, Mixx has the same easy compact fold.
-Travel system option. Nuna calls Tavo model a ‘One-click wonder” because it works with Nuna Pipa car seat without any adapters. You can just click your car seat right into place using the included bumper bar. There is also a little lock on the side of the frame that secures the car seat in place. Stroller canopy perfectly overlays Pipa canopy to create a full coverage for your little one. You can also remove the stroller canopy completely since the Pipa car seat has also a hidden dream drape that will provide a full protection.
I really have nothing negative to say about this stroller. I think it’s going to be a hit!
-Heavy weight. The only thing I would considering changing is the weight. The 24 lbs is a little on a heavy side for this type of the stroller. If you look at the other models, you will see that most strollers with these features weigh around 20-21 lbs. The 24-25 lbs weight limit is usually found in the reversible seat models. The popular Mixx weighs 25 lbs. That’s the only drawback I see in this model.
Here is a short video overview.

Where to buy it
I buy most of my strollers on Amazon because it usually has the lowest prices, free shipping, free returns and no tax. Unfortunately, Nuna Tavo was no available on Amazon, but I found it on PishPoshBaby for only $349. It comes with a bumper bar. You can also purchase it together with Nuna Pipa infant car seat to create a beautiful travel system for only $649.
