Anyone who is pregnant or is already a mum would know that there is literally hundreds, if not thousands of prams out there to choose from. There is so many decisions to make when pregnant, and deciding on a pram was one of the major ones for me. I love to get out and about and like to walk a lot, so I knew that I had to choose the right pram! I literally spent months researching prams and in the end decided on the Baccani Pletora pram, a modern, luxurious pram that has all the features of the more expensive prams but for a reasonable price. I’ve written this article as there wasn’t a huge amount of reviews online so wanted to share my experiences with the pram.
What I like about the Baccani Pletora
- The Baccani Pletora sounded like the perfect pram for us, and I knew I wasn’t taking too much of a risk by purchasing it without seeing it in person because the company offer a 14 day free home trial. This basically means that you can order the pram, have it delivered for free and decide within 14 days if it is the right pram for you. If it isn’t then they will arrange free return postage and a refund! The town I live in doesn’t have anywhere that you can purchase prams and due to covid, we didn’t want to travel to Sydney unnecessarily so this 14 day trial was particularly helpful for us. When the pram was delivered we assembled it, made sure I could put it up and down and also get it into the car myself (and that it would fit in the boot of my car)! Once we’d decided that we would keep it, we also took it on a walk around the block one evening to just confirm we were happy with it – which we were!
- Our pram also arrived only two days after we ordered it! I’m not the most patient person and the thought of ordering a pram and then waiting for months (which many of the other pram brands make you do), was not appealing to me.
- Most prams require a capsule or separate basinet for the newborn stage, but the Baccani prams are a 2-in-1 style which means they convert from a bassinet style into the toddler seat with just a few clips. I preferred this as it meant we didn’t need to purchase any additional accessories and we also didn’t have to store a capsule/bassinet when not using it or when Addie grew out of it.
- The price range on prams is literally crazy! You can spend anywhere from a few hundred dollars, all the way up to a few thousand dollars! I was happy to pay whatever it cost for a pram that would do what we needed it to do, but also didn’t want to spend more than necessary. The Baccani Pletora was reasonably priced and had basically all the features of the really expensive prams!
- As I mentioned earlier, we love to walk so one of the initial things that attracted me to the Baccani Pletora was the big wheels and suspension. The tyres are all terrain, airless tyres which are puncture proof and really large which makes the pram really stable and smooth to push on all different surfaces.
- I love the stylish, modern design with leather handlebar and the interchangeable canopies, as well as the big basket. All my mum friends told me that a big basket is an absolute must and it really is!
- The pram is easy to fold up and down and I can get it in and out of my car myself. I’ve got a medium sized car (Mazda3) and it fits easily in the boot.
- Finally, little Addie seems to love it (which really is the most important thing)!
What I would change about the Baccani Pletora
- We love our pram and there’s very little that I would change, the only thing we’ve found that isn’t perfect is that even though the handlebar is adjustable for different heights, we find that if we are going on a fast walk, our feet occasionally hit the brake bar. We’re both quite tall (I’m 5’9 and Dan is 6’1) which may be the main reason this happens, however the majority of the time we are just walking at a normal pace or out for a stroll and it isn’t an issue.
Would I buy it again?
100%! I love my pram and loads of people have commented on how stylish it is! Of course it is not all about looks and I love that it is super practical and has performed exactly the way that we were hoping.
I think we will get years of use of the Baccani Pletora pram and we’ll definitely take it on our Aussie driving holidays, but if we fly anywhere in Australia (or overseas when we are allowed to), then we’ll likely buy a compact travel stroller too just for ease!
I really love my Baccani Pletora pram and am really happy with my decision! I feel like there are so many big decisions to make during pregnancy and I definitely made the right one here.
Hopefully this will help anyone who is considering purchasing a Baccani Pletora and looking for honest reviews. I’m also really glad that we spent the extra money and upgraded from the Cavallo as the Pletora just had more features and was that bit more stylish!
