Joie Litetrax 4 Pushchair

Around a year ago I was on the hunt for a new pushchair for Archie, we was using a Maclaren Techno XT which was also Isla's, although we loved it he was just to tall for a umbrella type pram, his feet would drag on the floor and being under 2 I knew I would still need a pushchair for him for a little while, but we also didnt want to spend loads. On one of many online hunts on all shops possible I came across the Joie Litetrax 4, I was immediately drawn to it and read some more information on it. So we ended up getting it from Argos in the colour Chromium. 

It was EXACTLY what I was looking for...
  • The seat was higher up from the ground so no feet can drag on the floor, and he can now reach to push the traffic light crossing buttons! (his favourite thing to do!)
  • A bar style handle so it can be pushed easily 1 handed while also holding my daughters hand.
  • A parent tray with 2 cup holders and a compartment for my phone and keys. 
  • A huge basket, which is perfect when you have 2 children and don't drive.
  • Folds super easy with 1 hand, folds down very slim line also.
  • A removable bumper bar.
  • Extendable hood to keep the sun out of your child's face.
  • Adjustable calf support.
  • 4 recline positions, one of which is flat.
  • Single step brake system.
  • Automatic fold lock. 
  • Can get a foot muff to match it, and also can be used with a carry cot or car seat!
  • Lastly it didn't break the bank either at £149.99.

So this pushchair is suitable from Birth - 3 Years of age (15kg) which is brilliant for me as I don't drive, I walk everywhere and I know this will last Archie a while. It reclines super easy by using one hand on the handle at the back of the seat to push it up or pull it down. 

To fold you simply use a handle that is discreetly placed under a bit of material on the seat, you pull it up and like magic the pushchair folds in half, it claims to be free standing when folded, but this can be a bit hit and miss in my experience. It is pretty small and slimline when folded which is lovely as we have just down sized cars from a Zafira to a Astra. The folded size is L59.3 - W31.5 - D82cm

Other general information include:
  • Handle height of 103cm.
  • Weight of 10.17kg.
  • Lockable front swivel wheels. 
  • 5 point harness with crutch and shoulder pads for comfort. 
  • Rain cover included. 
  • Wheel suspension.
  • Viewing window in the hood to easily check on your child. 

We have really enjoyed using this pushchair so far, it really ticked all the boxes for us and I think its a great value for money pushchair. The parent tray has to be my favourite, if I am popping out on the school run and don't need to take a big bag, I simply put my keys, phone and a bit of change or my bank card in the compartment area. Its great to push 1 handed which was what I really wanted as with the last pram it really hurt my arm if I needed to hold my Daughters hand while walking home. The only negatives I have for it is that the crutch pad falls of so easily, I've resulted to just taking it off before we lose it somewhere, and secondly that the pram doesn't free stand when folded unless you lock the front wheels before you fold it, but because I like them on swivel mode its just easier to keep them that way, but again its not a huge problem, I just lock the back brake and lean it up against the wall when folded in my hallway. We have used this on most terrains and haven't had a problem with it, I also like that the wheels can't puncture, yet they are a good size. The pushchair just looks really sleek and I love this colour too, I just wish we had got it sooner!

  1. That sounds like a great buggy. Having a big basket underneath is a huge plus and I love that it has a cup holder too. #TriedTested

  2. It looks great! I always wanted a bag or tray for my phone / keys - the things I needed handier than the basket if you see what I mean.

  3. I love the extendable hood on this pushchair and the tray is a brilliant plus point! #TriedTested

  4. absolutely lovely

  5. Thanks for your post. I’ve been thinking about writing a very comparable post over the last couple of weeks, I’ll probably keep it short and sweet and link to this instead if thats cool. Thanks. best coffee thermos
