The new Nuna Mixx is a new HOT stroller in town! I’ve been getting tons of emails every day asking me to write a review. Well, here it is! More and more parents want a stylish reversible seat stroller that all-terrain wheels, large basket, is more or less compact, and is not too heavy.
Well, Nuna Mixx has all these features and then some. It is a full size stroller with a reversible seat and all-terrain wheels.
This sleek looking buggy has roomy seat, adjustable handle bar, reversible seat, very deep recline, flip-flop friendly brake, no-re-thread harness, and adjustable leg rest.
The basket is absolutely huge! You can fit two large diaper bags in it. Another feature that I really like is that you can create a bed-like environment for you child by lifting the leg rest and reclining the back of the seat absolutely flat.
Many reversible seat strollers have a ‘v’ shape seat leaving your child always in the sitting position. The seat can accommodate a child from birth and up to 50 lbs. The large canopy with a pop-out sunvisor will provide your child with plenty of sun protection.
You can also convert it into a travel system by replacing the seat with an infant car seat. The good thing that it already comes with an adapter for Nuns Pipa car seat (which is a great car seat btw).
The fold is not one hand, but is very easy and as compact as it can be in the reversible seat stroller. The good news is that you can fold it with the seat attached. Super easy! There is an automatic lock and you can roll it as a luggage behind you. All these goodness weighs 25 lbs.
I gave it 5 out of 5 stars because it’s almost perfect! I can’t even complain about the price because it’s only $499, very reasonable for a luxury stroller. It pushes like a dream gliding over bumps and uneven spots. I can easily maneuver it with just one hand even fully loaded.
Update: For 2017 Nuna has updated Mixx model releasing Mixx2. Here is my full review »
-Large canopy. This canopy is great. It’s large canopy with three panels and a pop-out sunvisor. You can zip in the panel in the middle to make it smaller. There is a large peekaboo window made out of dark mesh which provides your child with better air circulation on a hot summer day while protecting from the sun. I love the magnetic closure instead of the noisy Velcro that can wake up your sleeping baby. There are also two dark mesh windows in the middle panel of the canopy that will provide your child with better air circulation on a hot summer day. Great great canopy!
-Adjustable handle bar. The telescoping handle bar has 3 different positions and goes from 38″ to 42″ from the ground. The cool thing about handle bar is that it’s covered with rubber instead of foam. The foam fills very nice at first, but after getting thrown around it most likely will get ripped. You will end up walking around with a luxury stroller that is missing a few chunks of foam on the handle bar. Anyways… I do like the rubber cover.
-Reversible seat. The reversible seat has one-hand lever recline (my fav recline type) with 5 different positions including a flat one. I like that you can lift the leg rest and recline the back of the seat creating a bed like environment so your child can take a long nap. Very convenient for quick diaper changes too. The seat is suitable for a child from birth and up to 50 lbs. The seat is very easy to flip. Just push on two levers on the sides, swing it around and pop it right back in. The seat design reminds of of the seat on Mamas&Papas Armadillo model which I really like. The recline has the same positions in both modes. You can replace the seat with an infant car seat turning it into a travel system/car seat frame. It’s very convenient in the first 6 months while your baby is in the car seat most of the time. BTW, the seat fabric is machine washable.
-5 point harness. This adjustable no-re-thread padded 5 point harness can be converted to 3 point harness as your child gets older.
-Adjustable leg rest. It has 3 different positions. To adjust the leg rest, all you need to do is press two buttons on each side and lift it up.
-Parking brake. There is a single parking brake located between rear wheels. It is flip-flop friendly!
-Huge basket. Shopaholics will absolutely love the huge basket. It can fit it all! LOL. When my daughter was younger very often I didn’t want to put her into the dirty seat of the shopping cart. Even with the shopping cart seat cover it wasn’t as comfortable as the seat of the stroller. Now that she is 2.5 years, it doesn’t really matter. I put her into the shopping car and strap her in so she can’t escape or throw all of my stuff out of the cart.
-Wheels. It rolls on four never-flat foam-filled hard-rubber wheels with 10″ wheels in the back and 7″ wheels in the front. The front wheels are swivel, but can be locked straight. This all-terrain stroller can handle a lot of different surfaces including mulch, grass, and uneven city streets.
-All-wheel suspension. Absorbs some of the bumps making the ride smoother.
-Easy fold. The fold is very easy but requires both hands. It is pretty compact for a reversible seat stroller and it folds right with the seat attached. There is an automatic lock and you can roll it behind you like a luggage. The folded dimensions are 18.6″H x 23.2″W x 35.5″L. To make it more compact you can remove the wheels.
-Bumper bar. INCLUDED! The swing away bumper bar covered with fabric instead of foam. Easily removable.
-Car seat adapter. INCLUDED! It comes with an infant car seat adapter for Nuna PIPA car seat.
-Travel system option. You can easily convert Mixx into a travel system by replacing the seat with Nuna PIPA car seat. Keep in mind, this is the only car seat that it works with. The Nuna Pipa retails for around $299 and comes in five different colors.
-Rain cover. INCLUDED!
-Works only with Nuna Pipa cat seat. I wish there was an option for a travel system with other popular infant car seats.
-No accessories. There is very limited amount of accessories available.
-Limited colors. I am a visual person. So in my opinion there are not enough colors to choose from. I wish the fabrics were a little more fun with some patterns and interesting designs.
