Are you in need of a pram bundle for the soon arrival bundle of joy? Then you should look no further than these Mamas and Papas Prams.
Flip XT3 is one of Mamas and Papas famous pushchairs. I have already made a review on the Flip XT2 pushchair, but for this, I will look at the newer model.
The Mamas and Papas Strada is also growing and loved by Many, so I will be detailing the Strada model to see what it has to offer. Let’s see which of these two are better by going into the details.

A big hood not only provides shade from the sun but also rain, wind and gives your baby some privacy. The seat is suitable from birth up to 4 years which is around 22kg for most baby’s.

Just like the one above this one is lightweight and easy to handle. It offers an easy quick-fold by just using one hand. The chassis is slim and will perfectly be ideal for city dwellers but also for holidays.
Suitable from birth with the lie-flat position and you have also other positions to give your baby more views. It can be used up to 15kg which is around 3 years.
It offers rubber tyres and has reflectable wheels to make things easier. You can almost go anywhere with these tyres. The fabrics are washable to keep them clean and long-lasting.

This is cot is truly amazing because of the features it offers. It has a magnetic attachment to the chassis which makes it easy to attach.

After you are done using the cot, it offers a flat fold with its bar. How amazing is that? Now you able to store it anywhere and it saves up space.
The Difference Between the Mamas and Papas Flip XT3 and Strada Pushchair.
1. Strada Has More Features.
By just viewing these two you can see that the Mamas and Papas Strada offers more futures on the pushchair and carrycot. Features such as wheels that can reflect light and rubber tyres.
Giving a better steering experience and it has swivel front wheels. Other than both pushchairs are the same. Except for the Mamas and Papas Flip XT3 has fewer features but the same quality and offers the same accessories.
The cot also differs. Strada offers a cot with a peek a boo window which also has a magnetic attachment and can be folded when ready for the day.
Many more things by just viewing above.
Both have the same size and designed almost the same, but the features differ slightly. The Flip XT3 has a more spacious seat than the former which gives your toddler all the space they need.
2. Mamas and Papas Flip XT3 is Suitable For 4 Years.
One major difference is this age gap between 3 and 4 which is a lot. For up to 4 years you will have the stroller a year more and many parents are looking for this.
Many toddlers will be needing that extra year before feeling more comfortable walking alone.
3. Flip XT3 Offers Wrist Loop.
It might not be a major difference but it is one of the few considering how similar these two are. The wrist loop helps you steer the pushchair better or the cot.
The tyres not being all-terrain can make it hard to push on certain grounds by using the wrist loop it helps you out, therefore you don’t need to hustle that much.
Which One Is Better?
Why the Mamas and Papas Flip XT3 Can Be Better?
So, these reasons are already mentioned above really. The Flip XT3 is cheaper, well the whole bundle is. When looking at the features it has the same as the other one which does not help it at all.
The wrist loop makes it easier to steer than the former and one major difference that gives it a higher status is the age suitability.
Many parents don’t mind taking it even if it has fewer features, to just be able to use it for up to 4 years. It can save you money in the future and will also allow your toddler to grow out of the pram on their own.
No need to rush. It also has a bigger seat which means it will last much longer and will be more suitable for baby and toddlers that are bigger.
Making it a better choice for those kids.
Why the Mamas and Papas Strada Can Be Better?
This one is obvious because the features it comes with make it easy to win. It has a better cot as well which gives your baby more comfort.
The tyres and wheels are better making it easy to go anywhere. A peek a boo window on the cot will make it easy to view your baby without going to the front.
Which One is the Winner?
I have to choose the Strada pram. It has many features families all over the are looking for. It’s also ideal for urban and more ideal for a suburban lifestyle than the former.
If you live in narrow areas or visit there a lot then this one will come to good use. Although more expensive it has the features to make up for it.
As we all know no pushchair or pram is manufactured without any cons. The Flip XT3 cons are the features it lacks which the former pram offers, and vice versa with the other one.
Both are expensive which makes them not easy to purchase for any parent. I included, but I must say the features are exactly what I and any parents should be looking for.
They can’t be convertible into double strollers which is a bummer. If you happen to have another baby while this one still needs the pram, then you either buy a stroller board or a new pram.
That can cost. This is the risk of buying single strollers instead of double that can be converted into singles. However, singles are cheaper and less heavy.
Buying them will give you fewer headaches. The wheels can’t be removed and also you will need a changing bag which means more spending.
View my list of 10 fancy baby changing bags.
These are only suitable for parents who are willing to spend to save for lifestyle and adventurous journeys. If you have the money go for it.
They are reported to be lightweight which is a bit true because they both weigh around 11kg each. This is a bit heavy for a single stronger and there are much lighter prams.
Are These the Prams You Have Been Waiting For?
Well, are they? These Mamas and Papas Prams are one of the top leading prams right now. Although not the best options on the market they are still excellent.
You save a lot of money if you buy them instead of strollers from Bugaboo or Silver Cross which are usually more expensive. Which of these two is your ideal pram?
