Black melange love
March 20, 2016
I had the pleasure of purchasing the v2 scoot in BLACK MELANGE in NYC 2 years ago when it first came out. I must say I definitely jumped the gun on this one without doing much research. At the time my baby was only three months old. We've had it now for almost 2 years and everythig still works like it is from day 1.
The color is amazingly beautiful! It's very modern, chic, classic, and stylish. While unboxing I remember my dad couldn't stop saying how nice it was. Everything was packaged separately in the box and so it was easy and a breeze to put the whole thing together. Everything were like puzzle pieces that plugged right into eachother. The seat that came in was already assembled and just clicks right onto the base with green indicators on the side for a safety lock.
The folding takes a little breaking into. Which I have found some reviewers complained about. Initially we couldn't fold the whole thing at all but after a little practice the buttons gets Looser / smoother.
It pushes pretty well and smoothly & seems very light even with the baby on it. The frame is compact enough that it folds small and it fits tight spaces. Height is also perfect to sit on table and use it as a high chair. Which we have used many times than using restaurant's often dirty high chairs.
The only cons I have is that when it folds, the canopy sits right on floor so make sure you're not folding it on dirty / wet/ muddy places or your canopy will get dirty / wet / muddy.
Be warned that this is not a light stroller although it folds as one system and fits right in the car. The product weight, says it's around 24 lbs, but feels like 50 lbs for me lol.
I initially wanted the red but eventually we opted a beautiful neutral color that my husband wouldnt mind pushing and im glad we did! This pram is well made, built to last, and grows with your kid!
