Ready To Take The Smooth With The Rough
The original all-terrain buggy, urban jungle is versatile for on and off road adventures with your baby - the ideal buggy for parents who want to live a life without limit.
Tough Engineering And Functional Style
Cleverly engineered for function and durability, the urban jungle frame is made from strong yet lightweight high grade 6063 T5 aluminium. Rear wheel suspension and 12 inch air-filled tyres absorb bumps across all terrain, offering supreme comfort for your baby. Lock the front wheel straight for jogging or stability across uneven terrain, or switch to swivel for ultimate manoeuvrability.
Outstanding Kerb Pop
Compared with other brands, Mountain Buggies require less force to 'pop' up the front wheel thanks to perfect weight distribution for optimised performance. Glide effortlessly over all terrain.
Carrycot And Car Seat Compatible
urban jungle adapts to a bassinet style pram with the urban jungle baby carrycot, allowing your baby to lie flat and face you. Our range of urban jungle car seat adaptors allows you to attach most leading car seats to your buggy for ease of transporting baby. Mountain Buggy protect infant car seat fits perfectly on urban jungle for an all terrain travel system.
Comfort features for baby
A large, follow-the-sun canopy with flip out sun visor protects your baby from any angle, and a peek-a-boo flap allows you to keep an eye on them from above. urban jungle's wipe clean, 600D polyester fabric is water repellent and durable, and can be removed easily from the buggy frame.
A padded, tail free harness keeps your baby secure in their buggy seat and is easily adjusted as they grow. The seat position transitions from full recline for a newborn baby to upright for an older child, and a convenient 'gate' opening bumper bar allows you to easily get your baby in and out of the buggy.
Comfort And Convenience For You
urban jungle is simple to fold and stands independently to keep fabrics off the ground. An instant 'click' let's you know the buggy frame has automatically locked when folded.
urban jungle features a durable, comfort grip handle that is fully adjustable from 78 - 111cm to suit any height or stride length. An easily engaged, foot operated brake sits at the base of the buggy, along with a gear tray to accommodate up to 5kg of storage. Keep hydrated with a water bottle holder on board.
Freerider And Face-To-Face Compatible
Connect freerider stroller board to urban jungle's rear axle to accommodate a 2nd child. freerider transforms to a kids scooter (no tools required!), offering dual functionality for free-wheeling scooter fun! Your baby can also face you in urban jungle using the face-to-face rear facing seat.
When I fell pregnant with my first child I only had a learners drivers license and was unable to drive. Once I found out I was pregnant I realized that in order to take my baby out anywhere I would need a decent and reliable pram/buggy. As I had never really had any need for looking at prams or pushing them (except occasionally babysitting my nephew) I had no idea what to look for. Feeling very overwhelmed at the prospect of all the different brands and styles available I headed to the various baby stores in my town. After a while discussing with the staff in one store it was decided that a 3-wheeled pram would be more suitable.
I had decided that because I would be doing lots of walking I would need a pram that could handle everyday use on the footpath and not be too awkward around town. I find the Mountain Buggy Urban Jungle is great at maneuvering around shop aisles, but have found that because it is quite a bulky pram, it is awkward to get through some doors which can be a bit problematic at times. My partner's parents live on a farm so I also needed to get a pram that I could guarantee would handle all the off-road use it would be used for in the paddocks. I love the Mountain Buggy Urban Jungle as it does not bump baby around very much and provided a safe ride.
The Mountain Buggy Urban Jungle is wonderfully designed with many excellent features. The window on the hood of the canopy provides the person pushing the pram with the option to check on the child to make sure they are OK, without having to stop and walk around to the front of the pram and disturb them. Another feature I love is the storage areas on the buggy. There is a pocket by the handle which I personally use for storing my drink or phone in. Underneath the buggy there is also a storage area which has a large part, also mesh pockets on the side and a zippered compartment at the back (I store the wallet in there)
This pram is remarkably easy to put up with just a flick out and then wait for the click so you know it is safe and ready to use. To collapse is also very simple with two levers at the front of the pram, then it pretty much does the work for you as it collapses. All you have to do next is clip the strap around the bar and then it is ready to be put away in the car/house.
I highly recommend new parents looking for a reliable, comfortable pram to seriously consider purchasing a Mountain Buggy Urban Jungle as it will be a worthwhile investment. My pram has already been used for 2 children and is now being used for my 3rd. In this time I have only had to replace one tyre once. The saying "you get what you pay for" is very suited for the Mountain Buggy range and I would be lost without my Urban Jungle.
A fantastic buggy! I bought an Urban Jungle Mountain Buggy when I was pregnant with my first child with the intention of it being able to last all the children I planned to have (at least 2). With how much it cost I expected it to last a decent length of time and I have to say I have been very impressed with how it withstands the, sometimes rough, usage I have given it. I'm now onto my second child and this buggy is definitely still going strong.
It is very solid and well built and very easy to change the seat position from sitting upright so the child can see the world to lying down when the child falls asleep. Moving the position doesn't even wake the child up.
Collapsing the buggy is very easy to do with pushing down lightly and sliding two little clips but once it has collapsed and you want to lift it make sure you lift it from the base otherwise it will assemble itself again (I've done that many times).
Being a 3 wheel buggy, it is very easy to maneuver around the shops but it is quite long and the front wheel can stick out a bit so be careful of that when navigating around people, I have nipped a few people when I wasn't paying close enough attention (whoops). The canvas type material of the main seat is great for cleaning sticky little fingers and potential food messes but if you are concerned about keeping the seat clean you can always buy one of the many different types of seat covers that are available.
There are many different accessories you can buy for it to make life easier for you including a rain cover, sun cover a bassinet and a freerider (scooter type thing) for when they are older and want to roll along behind the stroller.
Advantages of the mountain buggy are that it caters for a large age range and can ride over lots of different surfaces. Also the construction is excellent and durable.
Disadvantages would be that it is quite a large buggy and you might want to make sure that you can lift it and fit it in the boot of your car before you buy it.
I really would recommend this buggy to everyone looking for something that will last the distance. The price might be higher than others but it is worth every penny!
