As a Graco Ambassador I was recently sent the Graco Evo Mini to review. I was quite excited for this to arrive as I knew it would be compact and lightweight but apart from that I didn’t know much about it.
The Graco Evo Mini arrived in one surprisingly heavy box but when I had taken everything out of the box I was impressed by how few parts there were to put together – I literally had to click the wheels on, attach the basket to the axle and put the hood on. After that the Graco Evo Mini was ready to go and even more lightweight than I had hoped!
We’ve been using the Graco Evo Mini as our out and about stroller since it arrived and we love how easily it would fit into any car because of how compact it folds – I have never used anything quite so compact when folded! The unique fold means that it takes up less space than even most umbrella fold strollers.
The shopping basket is huge, so much bigger than I’d expected and I can easily fit the change bag into it as well as shopping. A shopping basket is a great selling point for me on a pushchair and the one on the Graco Evo Mini doesn’t disappoint.
The three wheel design of the Graco Evo Mini along with how light it is makes it incredibly easy to push and it goes up and down kerbs without any problems. One downside of it being lightweight is that it is very much made of plastic and this could put some people off but the Graco Evo Mini is well made and robust – The lightweight factor definitely outweighs the plastic for me and it definitely wouldn’t be a deal breaker.
The Graco Evo Mini comes complete with a well fitting raincover and the only downside is that no footmuff is included. As the Graco Evo Mini is quite a triangular shape I’m unsure whether a universal footmuff would fit the Graco Evo Mini but we tend to use a blanket when we’re out and about in the colder months anyway.
The sun hood of the Graco Evo Mini is incredible large blocking out a huge amount of the sun. The seat is very well padded and the harness is easy to use and fastens securely. The seat has a different reclining mechanism to any I have seen before where you pull a toggle to adjust the recline. This does mean that you can have the seat as reclined as you like rather than set recline positions and it reclines all the way to laying flat. The toggle recline does take some getting used to but once you’ve used it a few times it becomes second nature.
We have loved using the Graco Evo Mini and it is our pushchair of choice for when space is limited or I’m out and about with just Little Man. I love how easy it is to fold and how compact it becomes. I also appreciate the generous shopping basket and maneuverability of the Graco Evo Mini. Overall this is a fantastic stroller that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
The Graco Evo Mini has an RRP of £179.99
