Testing the Thule Spring

Our mum tester Katie put the Thule Spring to the test with her 9 month old son Louis. Katie recently moved to Sydney, so was ideal to put this urban stroller through its paces! Here's how she got on...

We love how lightweight the buggy is, we live in a city and our house has a few steps to get to the front door, so as it's so lightweight it means we can carry the buggy up and down the steps with ease. The 3 wheels make the mobility great, whether you’re pushing the stroller across grass at the park or navigating narrow aisles in a shop – it's perfect for any environment. The foot lock is so easy to use and its double locking system when you're unlocking the stroller on a hill is a safety bonus. The five point buckle on the seat belt gives you peace of mind that your precious cargo is secure.

The canopy in itself should be the star of the show – the mesh panel means you can check on your little one on the move and the coverage is ideal. I am reassured that my 9 month old is protected from the sun with the coverage, and if you’re caught unprepared out in the rain you know that the canopy can be unzipped and extended further.

One of my favourite features is the adjustable handlebar – I am 5’7 tall and this is the first stroller I feel has been great for my posture with the handlebar extended to its full length.

It is very user friendly and great for being on the go. Single hand fold makes it quick and easy to get the stroller in and out the car. Its compact size is ideal, I can even fit it in the back of the car alongside my Golden Retriever with ease.

Overall the performance of this stroller is fabulous, I'm so impressed how it copes with different terrains, from city streets, to grass and even the beach. The canopy is one of the best features in my opinion, with how much coverage you get, you honestly do not need a sun mesh over the pram as the canopy gives complete coverage with the extra zipped compartment. I have done a lot of walking with this stroller and compared to others I’ve used, it glides across the payment. The wheels are a great size and the foam filling ensures a smooth ride – which is great for naps! The recline on the seat moves up and down with ease and naps on the go is made easy with how far the seat reclines.

Final thoughts

I would 100% recommend this buggy. It is durable, and comfortable for you and your little one. You can rest assured the canopy gives full protection from any weather.

You can get multiple accessories for this buggy; cup holder, rain cover, bumper bar, leg extension, travel case, rider board which is a massive drawcard. It is very stylish and great that the canopy comes in a range of colours. Its compactness fits in the car, tucked away in the house and it is lightweight meaning it's easy to move. The seat cover is easy to wipe down and keep clean.

I found it really hard to find any cons for this stroller, I didn't think there were any! The only thing I could think of is the bumper bar would be nice to come with the stroller, as many strollers do include this, but actually Louis has loved being in this stroller, and the five-point harness keeps him secure enough without the bumper bar. We honestly would not change a thing it has been so perfect for our wants and needs. If you're looking for a stroller for the city – the Thule Spring is a winner in my eyes.
