Luxury Baby Pram | Mima Xari Stroller Review
I call it the Cadillac of strollers. When I was pregnant and searching for a stroller for baby Liam there were too many options to choose from! But when I came across the Mima Xari stroller, I couldn't see passed it. It looked absolutely beautiful but I wasn't sure if it would be a practical stroller for my baby. After reading more about its functionality and reviews, it was a no brainer and had completely won me over. The Mima Xari stroller is most definitely a luxury pram yet simple and practical to use.
You should see all the gorgeous colours the Mima Xari stroller comes in! I got the cool grey so that my husband feels comfortable enough to push the stroller too haha. The chassis is the xari base. I also got the base frame in cool grey so that it matches the carrycot and seat.
From Carrycot to Seat/Pushchair
My favourite thing about the Mima Xari stroller is its elegant design. It accommodates infant to baby with its transformation from carrycot to seat. I was so fascinated with how the carry cot can be closed and made into the pushchair. This way you get the best of both worlds.
In the first few months of your infants life, the carrycot is perfect. Since they are always sleeping, the carry cot provides comfort for your little one to sleep while laying down. You cant ignore the fact that it makes the entire stroller look so elegant! Baby Liam loved it and always slept in it whenever we went out.
The xari seat seriously looks like something from out of this world or year 2100. I love how sleek the design is! I have yet to put Liam in the seat because he just turned four months. My son loves observing and looking at people! What better way to let him do what he loves than by putting him in the xari seat once he's able to hold up his head?
The Mima Xari stroller base includes two lidded baskets with magnetic lids for storage and keeps items neatly out of sight.
The Mima cup holder is a must for your morning cup of coffee or even your water bottle if you are going out for a walk with baby.
I love how the Mima changing bag matches the stroller. It comes with a changing pad inside to set your baby on when changing him/her. One of my other diaper bags came with these clips that are placed on the stroller handle to hold up a diaper bag. By leaving them on, I can clip any diaper bag that I choose that day.
When summer came along and the mosquitos came out to bite I knew I needed some protection for baby Liam. I love the Mima mosquito net because it fits the pram perfectly so there is no opportunity for any bugs to come in. You can always get an alternative inexpensive net but they are usually universal in size and don't fit as well. This could be a hassle fitting it to the pram, but most importantly keeping the bugs out.
Although we've had pretty good summer with not much rain, I still decided to be prepared for any weather and got the rain cover. We live in Canada and as most of you know, it can go from sunny to rainy to windy in a blink of an eye! haha
Car Seat Adapter
The Mima car seat adapter kit is a must if you are on the go and want to place your car seat on the xari base instead. Lets be honest, you NEED this. As much as I love the carry cot and seat, sometimes I don't have time to switch baby Liam out of his car seat and into it. And if he is sleeping, I don't want to wake him up! The adapter definitely saves you time and its so easy to attach with one snap. The adapter is compatible with the following car seats Canada/USA:
- Maxi Cosi Mico
- Maxi Cosi Mico AP
- Nuna Pipa (I have this one)
Not only is the stroller beautiful but so is the travel bag! You can pack up your Mima Xari stroller and take it with you on vacation. Most airlines will accept it as luggage which works out great.
I am so happy with this stroller! Hope this review was helpful for all of you asking about it! I absolutely love it and its so worth it in my opinion.
