Redsbaby JIVE³ Pram
The Redsbaby JIVE³ Pram grows with your family, converting from a single to a compact tandem pram when you need it; the pram also comes with a 12kg shopping basket, and the seat is reversible and reclines. Weighing in at 8.3kg (chassis, wheels and basket), it’s lightweight and easy to manoeuvre.
From newborn to toddler.
Tell Me Baby parents love the features this pram comes with, especially the storage basket and seat configuration options. Most importantly, many said it was excellent value for money, and that the customer service at Redsbaby was outstanding.
One parent said this pram took up “some room in the boot” but would still recommend it. Redsbaby JIVE³ Pram is also heavier than the Bugaboo – but only just.
“If you are looking for a pram with an abundance of features at a really good price you can’t go past the RedsBaby Jive3. So many seat configuration options, for one baby or two. Heaps of good-sized storage spaces. Steers well on all terrains. And folds quickly and easily. The pram itself isn’t too bulky, but does take up some room in the boot. And bub loves a pram nap, which is surely the best feature!”

The Bugaboo Ant weighs 7.2kg (chassis, wheels, seat), making it lightweight and easy to carry. Featuring a reversible and reclinable seat, the Bugaboo Ant folds in one piece to a compact size. Available storage includes an under-seat basket (up to 3kg) and rear luggage basket (up to 5kg).
Suitable from birth to toddler.
Tell Me Baby parents say this pram is surprisingly roomy, and it doesn’t take up much boot space. A couple of parents said this pram was perfect for travelling.
One reviewer found the folding a little complex at first but said it was easy once they got the hang of it. Despite this, they would still recommend the Bugaboo Ant to other parents. Another con is that the Bugaboo Ant doesn’t have as much storage as the Redsbaby JIVE³ Pram – but only by a couple of kilos.
“We recently used the ant on a family holiday, and it has me considering buying one for our toddler. It’s surprisingly roomy. I have a tall toddler, and she fit in it with room to spare. It’s so small when it’s folded down, and takes up barely any boot space. For such a lightweight pram, it doesn’t feel flimsy at all. I’m very impressed with it.”
