Unboxing Mamas and Papas Armadillo Flip XT

As a self admitted addict to all things Prams and Pushchairs it was without question that somehow the new mamas and papas armadillo flip xt would arrive at my door. The Armadillo Flip XT arrived this morning as i sat eagerly awaiting its arrival, i almost hugged the delivery guy when he turned up at 10am ( hurrah to early morning deliveries!;) Thankfully Jacob was playing happily in his Jumperoo and Frankie loves helping so i do admit i opened it as soon as i got it through the door..

Mamas and Papas Armadillo Flip XT is the newest Upgrade to the Armadillo Family and the most stylish in my opinion. It is Available in Navy ( my Choice), Teal Tide, Mulberry, Sand Dune, Black Jack and a Special Edition Liberty ( this one does come with a heftier price tag.)

Pram Photoshop ‘woop woop’


Here’s how it all arrived boxed nicely, now to find a way of getting everything out without the help of some else was a bit tricky thankfully with a little help from a weirdly angled leg we managed to get everything out.

Included here – main frame seat, two big wheels, the small front wheels ( tucked into the seat) the brake and the rain cover.

Now the assembly, Attach the brake ( Check)√ click in all the wheels (Check)√ unfold pram or should i say unflip? (check)√.  There was the situation of popping the basket out and pulling part of it over the brake wire which i found incredibly difficult for some reason but managed it eventually so (Check)√

Here is the Armadillo Flip XT fully assembled

  1. Nice to read an I boxing post as this is the pram we have gone for. I love it and how easily and small it folds – I also have a fiesta so size was a priority when choosing! How have you found using it so far? Is it as easy, comfortable and as easy to move around as they make out?

    1. Thankyou for the feedback Becky.
      Yes I love how compact the fold is on this pushchair, it’s an easy fit in my fiesta boot and takes less than 30 seconds to get up and running.
      The basket is very generous also and easily accessible.
      My main niggles are that the 4 point saftey hardness comes apart 9/10 when I’m getting my son in and then it’s really fiddly and a bit stiff to get it all clunked back in. I do use this pram with a buggy board and do find it to get a bit front wheel heavy when that’s attached but that’s to be expected from such a lightweight pushchair.
      I want to apologise for such a slow reply, didn’t seem to get any notification of your message!
