Inspired by nature, the Ickle Bubba Stomp V4 All-In-One Special Edition Travel System with ISOFIX base is an integration of style and value that is seamlessly brought together through quality and design. The Ickle Bubba Stomp V4 comes as an all-in-one package including a Galaxy Group 0+ Car Seat with its own ISOFIX base and a host of accessories to make a complete bundle from birth to three years.

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Jo: I would recommend this product firstly for the price. You get everything you need from birth until toddler. Secondly, the look and style of the travel system is very trendy. Lastly, the comfort for the baby to me is very important. I found that it was very comfortable for the baby both sleeping and awake.

Dani: I would recommend this product to another parent because it was comfortable for my daughter to travel in. It was easy to connect to the car mainly because of the ISOfix. It is quite a light product so I didn’t struggle to lift it so I think it would be perfect for any parent.

Sarah: I would recommend this travel system to others. I felt the travel system was of good quality and had everything you’d expect plus some nice extras such as the nappy bag and car shades. I didn’t have the instructions to hand to unfold and add the base to the pram and found it fairly easy to fold down and set back up again intuitively.

How did this product make your life easier?

Nicola: This pushchair was a pleasure to use! It was sturdy and felt safe. It steered well and collapsed relatively easily. It reclined nicely and the sunshade was large enough to provide good cover for my daughter. This was a great feature. I have a dog, and it pushed surprisingly well on grass and pebbles whilst walking her. The handle positioning was easy to adjust and great for my husband who is tall.

Pamela: I am impressed with this travel system. It includes all the essentials you need when you are starting out. It is lightweight but still seems sturdy. It collapses to be quite compact. I could just fit the pram base with wheels on and seat in the boot of my very small car. If you are even more limited for space the wheels do come off but honestly you will not want to be faffing about doing that so it is great that this is not needed.

Sara: This product is a very attractive design. The pram itself is very sturdy and durable and can be used over lots of different terrains. I trialled the pushchair element of this travel system due to the age of my son (18 months). He was very upright in the pram which he really enjoyed. The ride itself was very smooth so he was quite happy sat in this pram for prolonged periods of time.

Would you choose this product to win?

Charlotte:  The clever feature that really stood out on this travel system was the ability to use the same frame for both the carrycot and the pushchair seat. Babies outgrow the bulky carrycot very quickly and normally you’d have to make room to store it. The upright seat position for the pushchair seat would make me choose this product over others, as ultimately my child’s comfort is the most important factor.

Elizabeth: I don’t think this product should win as. In my opinion, it is not the best on the market. The brake wasn’t obvious which is dangerous as it should be something you can immediately see and use with ease. The basket is far too small and I could hardly get a bag of shopping into it. A large basket is one of the features I look for in a pram so this was disappointing.

Beccy: I think the price point is a real key selling point. Everything you need is included which is a huge plus as a lot of travel systems don't include a car seat or Isofix base. It also looks really stylish and is nice to push. The brakes are easy to apply. I don't drive and felt it was a lot wider than the travel system I currently own which can be a bit of a nightmare if another pushchair is already on the bus. The hood felt a bit flimsy and the rain cover was so thin.

What changes would you make to this product?

Karen: I would like it if the hood had an extension so that it can be pulled further over the baby in rain or sunshine. There really isn't anything else I would change. It is a beautiful travel system and most importantly I felt my baby was comfortable and safe in it at all times.

Eleanor: I would change the way it folds down as I found this very difficult. This made me less fond of this product. I did really like the colour and coordination of the two products.

Louise: I would change the hood design, to provide more shade during sunnier weather. I feel this would make the pushchair more comfortable for little ones and give mums more peace of mind over sun exposure. They could make it similar to other products where it could fold away to save space, but maybe unzip a section to allow the extra extension.
