DESCRIPTION: A 4-wheel pushchair that has integrated pram feature, suitable for use from birth up to 15kg (approx. 3 years). Features include rearward facing and forward facing seat with multi-position recline, adjustable footrest, 4-height adjustable handlebar, lockable front-swivel wheels, quick release wheels with EVA tyres, and 5-point padded harness. Also includes removable bumper bar, hood, apron, liner, raincover, shopping basket, and an adapter kit to form travel system with the Petite Star 0+ Car Seat.  

Dimensions are as follows:
Folded: 61cm x 94cm x 29cm
Weight: 10kg

ASSEMBLY: The Klassic pushchair requires some simple assembly prior to use and the accompanying instructions manual guides you through this in an easy-to-follow diagrammed format. Once the frame has been unfolded, the front and rear wheels all need to be slotted into the appropriate mouldings on the frame until they click into place. The seat unit can be fitted (either forwards or rearwards) via its 'pegs' into the two connection points on the frame, and easily removed using the corresponding release buttons. The hood zips onto the top of the seat, with each end clipped onto the bars on either side of the pushchair frame, and the bumper bar simply clicks into place onto the front of the seat unit. If using the seat unit in its pram mode, the shoulder and crotch straps can be feed through the precut slits in the accompanying liner. If the Klassic is to be used with the Petite Star Car Seat, the adaptors (included) need to be clicked into the side mouldings first, into which the car seat can then be attached. The handlebar height may also need to be adjusted, which can be done by pushing in the handlebar adjustment button and raising or lowering to the desired height.

GOOD POINTS: The Petite Star Klassic is a really affordable four-wheel travel product which has a well finished and innovatively designed seat unit that lends itself to both a pushchair and a pram mode. This makes it ideal for first-time parents or those tight on budget or space. It boosts a subtle 'classic' appearance, and has a strong sturdy frame with an adaptable design that enables it to also be used as a travel system in combination with the Petite Star 0+ Car Seat (adaptors are included).

Petite Star KlassicThe Klassic is simple to assemble (see above), and very easy to unfold and collapse, thanks to sliding lever locks on the sides and a red plastic folding latch that secures the chassis in its folded position. The seat unit is substantial and really well made, and its unique design offers flexible transport options.

In the pushchair mode (suitable for use from 6 months upwards), the seat can be easily fitted in either a front-facing or rear-facing position, the latter of which is ideal for enabling young babies to lie facing you so that you can both keep an eye on each other. Either way, the seat can be reclined to several positions, with a separate adjuster buckle that alters the height of the backrest, enabling the Klassic to offer an upright sitting position for older children through to a fully reclined position for younger or sleeping babies. 

The seating area is padded to provide maximum comfort for your child whatever the length of journey, and a five-point harness with padded crotch and shoulder straps keeps your child securely restrained. The harness can be fully adjusted to suit your child’s age, height and size. An adjustable footrest can be tilted up or down to provide support to tired legs, and a removable safety bar gives extra security as well as providing a useful attachment for toys. In addition, a zip-on concertina-style hood can be pulled down to provide some essential shade from the sun, and a Velcro flap on the top (which can be fastened back) allows you to check on your child en route.

In the pram mode (suitable from birth), the seat unit cleverly converts into a lie-flat bed for newborns, eliminating the need for any separate carrycot unit to be fitted (or stored!). This can be done in a few easy steps, by unfastening the webbing buckles on the underside of the footrest, pushing the foot area flat, and adjusting the seat unit and backrest to their lowest positions. As such, the seat frame and footrest become level to provide a secure enclosed pram body. A wonderfully soft liner is included to offer a comfortable padded area for baby to lie on, and a fitted apron attaches around the top of the pram unit (via Velcro tabs) to ensure baby is kept warm. The hood can also be pulled forwards to create a safe and snug environment in which baby can sleep on-the go.

Additional features of the Petite Star Klassic include a handy shopping basket (max.Petite Star Klassic load 3kg) located under the seat unit to store a few essential shopping/travel items (also has a pocket to store the adaptors), as well as a padded adjustable handlebar which has not one but four different positions to cater for all parental heights. The Klassic also comes with a durable raincover which fits over the hood and can be used in either pram or pushchair mode. It also has a really useful ventilation window on the front that can be secured open.

The Klassic is nice to push around and easy to manoeuvre, helped by the solid durable PV tyres, and front swivel wheels which can also be locked into a fixed position if you are travelling over uneven surfaces. Another safety feature is the easy-to-operate rear brake system which is activated and released by a single foot pedal.

In our opinion, this is a really comfortable good quality product that caters perfectly for the needs of both parent and child, and has a unique and effective design which is particularly suited to first-time parents.

BAD POINTS: Opening and closing the Klassic cannot be operated one-handed. The seat covers are not machine washable. There is no carry handle. The Klassic is only available in one colour.
