I am a big fan of the Dutch company Nuna, so I was very excited to test their all-terrain luxury IVVI stroller. This stroller really grows with your child from birth and through their toddler years. Use it as a travel system with an infant car seat or as a pram by replacing the seat with a stylish bassinet. The reversible seat can face you or the world.
It rolls on four all-terrain wheels that can handle snow, sand, or uneven pavement like a champ. I absolutely love the extendable canopy with mesh peekaboo window that will provide full coverage for your child even when the seat is fully reclined.
The telescoping handle bar will accommodate taller and shorter parents. The basket is HUGE and is easy to access. The adjustable leg rest provides more stretching room for your baby.
It also features easy fold, automatic lock, standing fold, flip-flop-frigidly brake, all-wheel suspension and swing-away bumper bar. All these great features comes with a heavy weight of 30 lbs which is a little too heavy if you ask me. This stroller can accommodate a child from birth and up to 50 lbs. The IVVI is great for grocery shopping and long walks at the park. You can fit lot of stuff into that basket and because the IVVI is pretty heavy you can also hang a lot of stuff off the handle bar.
Interestingly enough, the US IVVI model is a little different from the European one. The main difference is the seat. On the European model only the back of the seat reclines similar to Mixx, while on the US model the seat is one molded piece so when you recline it, the whole seat reclines. I am not sure why we got a different seat, but keep it in mind when ordering one. A lot of US sites incorrectly use photos of the European model and then surprise parents with the US model. I know it’s confusing.
I gave IVVI 5 out of 5 starts despite the heavy weight, because I think it hits all the main points parents are looking for. The weight and the bulky fold are the only two complaints that I have. Everything else is great. If you looking for a lighter more compact stroller, take a look at Nuna Mixx. The Mixx model has everything IVVI has minus the bassinet option, can be folded with the seat attached and weighs only 25 lbs.
-Extra large canopy. The canopy on Nuna IVVI is great! It has two large panels with a small pop-out sunvisor and zipped-in so called ‘dream drape’ that goes all the way down pass the bumper bar providing your child with FULL sun protection. I absolutely LOVE this canopy! It will give your child plenty of shade even with the seat fully reclined. It has a large dark mesh peekaboo window with a magnetic closure.
-Adjustable handle bar. The telescoping handle bar has 6 positions going from 39″ up to 42″ from the ground. It has a rubber cover that is very easy to clean.
-Reversible seat. The roomy seat is 12″ width with 20″ seat back and a measurement of 22″ from the back of the seat to the top of the canopy. This is a very standard seat size for the reversible stroller. The seat is very soft and has a seat padding that is made out of Oeko-Tex certified fabric meaning it’s ecco friendly and free of any harmful substances.
-Deep recline. The seat has one-hand 3-position lever recline that goes to almost a flat position suitable for a newborn. The seat can accommodate a child from birth and up to 50 lbs.
-Removable seat liner. On a hot summer day you can remove the seat liner exposing a breathable mesh. This will improve the air flow keeping your baby cool. Little babies sweat a lot so this is a great feature for parents who live in a hot climate. The seat liner is also machine washable.
-Bumper bar. INCLUDED! The bumper bar is removable and swing away. You can easily open it from either side. It’s covered with soft fabric that is also removable. One little thing that I didn’t like is that you have to press a button in order to close the bumper bar. Usually you just click it back into the frame without any buttons. Not a big deal, but unnecessary extra step.
-5-point harness. It has an adjustable padded 5-point anti-loop harness with center release buckle. Once your child is older, you can convert it into 3-point harness.
-Adjustable leg rest. The leg rest has two positions: up and down.
-Huge basket. This basket is huge and also very easy to access from the back and the front even with the seat fully reclined. The other cool thing is that it has a divider in the middle that you can use to separate the items.
-Flip-flop-friendly brake. There is a flip-flop-friendly brake located on the right side between rear wheels. No more shoe scratches!
-All-wheel suspension. The front and rear wheel progressive suspension absorbs bumps for a smooth ride.
-All-terrain wheels. It rolls on four all-terrain tires with 11″ threaded wheels in the back and 7″ wheels in the front. As you can tell, the tires are very thick and can handle wide range of different terrain. The front wheels are swivel, but could be locked straight. This stroller is great for long walks at the park or for tackling snow and sand.
-Easy fold. The fold is easy, but you have to remove the seat before folding the stroller. This is one of the main differences between IVVI and Mixx. In Mixx, you can fold it with the seat attached. On the other hand, the IVVI is very heavy at 30 lbs including the seat, so it would probably be easier to remove the seat first and then fold the frame. That way, you won’t have to lift the whole 30 lbs when loading it into your car. It also has an automatic lock and standing fold. The folded dimensions are 29″H x 19″ W x 25″L.
-Travel system option. Turning your stroller into a travel system is super easy. You can replace the seat with a Nuna Pipa car seat by using included car seat adapters. Note: The IVVI model works ONLY with Nuna Pipa car seat.
-Car seat adapters. INCLUDED! It works with Maxi Cosi, Nuna Pipa, or Cybex Aton car seats.
-Bassinet option. You can turn your stroller into a stylish pram by replacing the seat with a bassinet (purchased separately). I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this bassinet. The design, the materials the little features are to die for! It’s deep and keeps it’s shape very well. The silver frame and a handle bar make it look modern and luxuries. The top cover provides a warm space for a little one, but could be easily removed by unzipping it from both sides. There is also a hidden storage compartment in the front of the bassinet that you can use to store small essentials.
The cozy mattress is reversible to match the cold or warm weather. So your child will not be sweating on a hot summer day. I think that it’s much easier to protect your baby from cold weather by putting bunch of warm clothes on them, than to provide good air circulation and cooler environment during hot days. So, you will really enjoy this feature if you live in a hot climate.
Speaking of environment, the bottom of the bassinet underneath the soft mattress is made out of real wood. This is the best way to regulate temperature since wood doesn’t get too hot or too cold unlike plastic. It also provide your child with toxic free place. It’s worth mentioning that everything is made using certified Oeko-Tex fabric.
In case of the mess, you can easily remove the mattress cover and wash it. BTW, the sides inside of the bassinet are covered with soft fabric so your baby will feel cozy.
A great thing about this carrycot is that it can be used as a pram or standalone. You can put it on the ground without worrying it getting dirty. The little legs attached to the bottom of the carrycot will protect the fabric.
You can also use this bassinet as an extra sleeping place for your child at home. You can use it from birth and up to 17 lbs or up to 29.5″. The bassinet by itself weighs 13.1 lbs. Together with the frame it weighs 32.3 lbs. Heavy! I hope you are not going to lift it up with the bassinet attached.
The canopy on IVVI carrycot is great! It’s a large size with a small pop-out sunvisor and for even more protection you can pull out a dream drape that will provide your child with FULL coverage. What I really like are the hidden inside of the drape magnets that you can use to easily and quietly attach the dream drape to the frame of the bassinet. No buttons, no clips, no hooks. Simple! When not needed dream drape can be put away using a hidden pocket underneath the canopy.
Another great feature that provides better air circulation is a hidden mesh in the canopy. This helps keeping your baby cool on a hot summer day.
-No accessories. There is very limited amount of accessories available right now, but it looks like they will be adding a snack tray and a cup holder soon.
-Heavy weight. The 30 lbs weight is usually seen in the convertible stroller that convert from single to double mode and need a very durable heavy frame to handle two seats. Since IVVI is a single stroller, I would expect a lighter weight at around 25 lbs. On the bright side, since the seat is removable you really never have to lift the whole 30 lbs. You can just load the seat or car seat into the car and then lift the frame.
-Bulky. Since IVVI doesn’t fold with the seat attached, the whole package will take up all of your room in the trunk. It’s also not very travel-friendly because of the bulkiness.
