Hauck Travel System Shopper Trio – The Lightweight One

 

I actually really love the Hauck travel system Shopper Trio. At first glance it looks a bit flimsy compared to others. It looks like a buggy or stroller which are light for the car and being out and about. But when you look closer and see that this is a travel system, its surprising. It hasn’t got the extensive padding and super strong frame like some others, but its simplicity is its virtue here. I think it’s a travel system that doesn’t need replacing with a lightweight buggy somewhere down the line.

It’s at the cheaper end of the market, right at the cheaper end, so don’t expect miracles, but for what you pay, it’s really very good.

Pushchair Element – Seat

Hauck Shopper full setThis is a very simplistic seat, there is no extra padding on the sides, no elaborate functionality. It can even be compared to a stroller or lightweight buggy for its design and simplicity. But I think that’s a positive, if that is what you are looking for. Beware of jealously eyeing up other peoples soft padded cocoon style chairs though!

It has a bar across the front for safety and a 5 point harness for safety as well as an adjustable seat to recline the baby to 3 positions.

You can use it from birth if you use it in combination with the car seat and carrycot.

 

Car Seat

Huack with car seatThe car seat is a quality design which has a side impact protection system which ensures your baby’s safety at all times. It also has special patented shock absorbing foam in the case of the car seat for extra security.

The car seat fits in the parent facing position, which is what you need from birth.

It comes with a headrest and adjustable straps too for baby’s comfort and comes as part of the trio system. Otherwise it wouldn’t be called trio!

 

Carrycot

Hauck with carry cotThis is a standard carrycot style system, which can be attached to the frame. Its a hard sided cot which is well padded for those long walks and is suitable from birth. It’s not the most sturdy but its definitely good enough.

 

 

 

Smoothness of the Ride

Despite the light weightness of this travel system, it still produces quite a smooth ride. It does have plastic wheels which in my opinion are the least gentle, but then this isn’t a top of the range pram. It does have suspension though so this goes a long way to helping keep the ride smooth.

 

Foldability

This system is very easy to collapse, like that of its little brother, the lightweight stroller. Each of the elements are easy to detach so its a very simple move to collapse the pushchair. As such it doesn’t take up much room in your boot or in your house.

 

Other smaller features

Due to the simplicity of this pram there are not a whole lot of additional features but here’s what it does have.

Basket: The basked on this system is a really good size which is a feature that I love. It’s essential.

Cup holders: There is a parent cupholder near the handlebars which is a lovely touch for when you need that coffee.

I do recommend buying a baby travel system online as you are able to test it out in your home and in your car and I have only recommended sellers who ofer a really good returns policy.

If you like this pram, perhaps you might like the Hauck Miami (a little more expensive) or the Graco Quattro Tour?
