Chicco Goody Stroller is a compact yet premium stroller. It is lightweight, weighing 6.9kg, and features auto folding, at the touch of a button, and easy opening.

Goody is designed with a spacious seat and padded backrest that can be adjusted to three different positions and thanks to the car seat adapter, it is compatible with select Chicco seats. It can be easily transported in car boots or during travels. It is easy to manoeuvre and comes complete with a spacious storage basket, and for added versatility, a bumper bar.

How did this product make your life easier?

Kate Allen says: "I was impressed with this product as it was very lightweight and compact and didn't take up much room in the car compared to many other strollers. It was small enough to go in the footwell of our car - freeing up needed space in the boot. The bumper bar that goes over the front also doubles up as a good handle for carrying. This pushchair has now become one of our "go to" pushchairs for days trips when we need to take a lot of stuff with us. This is the perfect alternative when other strollers can take up the majority of the boot. It will be prefect for going on holidays and taking on the plane. The fabrics used made the pushchair feel luxurious and comfortable."

Whitney Dalby says: "This buggy is so easy to use! It came fully assembled so did not require any faffing about once it came out of the box. The easy of use of this product really does stand out, i can both make up and put down this buggy with just one hand! this is a great thing to be able to do when you have a wiggly 8month old in your arms! The small size of this once folded up means that it is easy to fit in even the smallest car, it is also lighweight enough to be able to lift it up and pop it in the boot with said wiggly 8 month old still in my arms."

Jennie Dale says: "The Goody pram is light weight and compact, so in that respect it is easier to set up, put down, store and transport than previous prams I have used. I really like the hood to the pram the fact that it can be extended further to give you baby more shade is great and convenient, although the sound when you are increasing the hood size takes a little getting used too (I thought I had broken it to begin with). The pram also lies completely flat which is great for younger babies or just a sleeping baby. Although there is no way to check from the back of the pram whether your child is asleep so you need to walk around to the front to do this. You receive a rain cover with the pram which I was really pleased about as British weather is unpredictable. The cover whilst does its job doesn’t feel like it fits the pram well and I think by my third use of it my son who was 10 months at the time had managed to tear a hole in it by swinging his legs. I think the quality lets the pram down."

Would you recommend this product to other parents?

Liz Dallison says: "Yes I would definitely recommend this stroller to someone else due to how user friendly and lightweight it is. It is so easy to fold and unfold by just the click of a button and is really easy to transport and takes up little space when folded. I found it really helpful that it has one handle bar rather than 2 separate ones like some other strollers as if I'm out with my 3 year old as well I've got a free hand. Both my 1 year old and 3 year old seem happy and comfy when in it and the harness is easy to adjust."

Grace Daniels says: "A very easy to use buggy, lightweight and has good foldability. It is small when folded and fits easily into bootspace of even small cars. Very easy to put up and put down but requires two hands rather than a one handed fold like similar products. For such a small stroller it has a reasonable amount of under-buggy storage. It looks classic and sleek and is easy to adjust and fasten the straps. Feels sturdy with little one strapped in, but is lightweight without a child in situ and on one occasion blew over in a strong gust of wind. It is perfect for pavement use and for shopping centres and similar, but its main downfall is how poorly the wheels perform on anything that isn’t perfectly smooth terrain. It just does not cope with bark, gravel or tree roots and struggles on grass."

Louise Dann says: "I would recommend this product to other mums because it is so simple and easy to use. It makes everything a little quicker when you are on the move with a young child. It is not only simple, quick and easy to use but smart and stylish to look at and comfortable for baby to get in be moved around and sleep in."

Would you choose this product above all others on the market?

Laura Danvers says: "I feel this pushchair should win for being lightweight as it really is easy to lift, fold and put away. This makes life as a busy mum (of a newborn and toddler) easier as I know I can spend less time putting the pushchair together or packing it away. Being lightweight, it is very easy to manoeuvre especially in tight spaces such as shops and urban areas but also has a decent brake when stationary."

Elizabeth Dapre says: "I have four buggies at present - a double running buggy, a cabin sized travel buggy, a large 'luxury' traditional pram, and an umbrella pushchair. This buggy is not only the most affordable, but also the most compact and easy to use. Another feature which I really like is the range of age/weight which it can be used for; despite how compact and lightweight it is, it still feels sturdy."

Kate Allen says: "This product is good value for money compared to other lightweight strollers of a similar design. I liked the fact it can be pushed one handed which is a feature I like with a pushchair. It was nice to push but not as a smooth ride as a larger more premium pushchair - but this is to be expected. The one handed folding mechanism is well designed and very useful feature. Due to it being lightweight the frame did feel more flimsy compared to other pushchairs and might not necessarily last as well - but time will tell."

What changes would you make to this product?

Whitney Dalby says: "There are two main things that i would change - the handle height is not adjustable and as a petite person (5'2) i have found the handle is a bit high for me but not to the point that it is uncomfortable. The braking system - where the foot pedal to brake is situated makes it very easy to accidentally step on it and put the brake on."

Jennie Dale says: "The area where I have had the most difficulty with the pram is with its mobility. The wheel on the pram are very small and plastic, which makes for a bumpy ride, although my son doesn’t seem to mind this. I do struggle to get the pram up and down the curbs. I have to use two hands to fight the pram to do this. I have a 3 year old as well who I hold the hand of when crossing the road I am unable to do that with this pram as I need both hands to ensure the control of it. The pram also doesn’t handle different road surfaces well, I live in a town and some of the streets are cobbled which the pram doesn’t handle well, again two hands and quite a bit of force needed to tackle. Also any small bumps on the road catch the pram out."

Liz Dallison says: "I can't really think of anything but if I had to choose something it would be that the backrest could be a little more upright but understand that this probably isn't possible due to the lightweight design but this is just a little thing as both my 1 year old and 3 year old both seem happy and comfy when they are in there."
