Britax Affinity - Review

As part of the Britax Mumbassadors program we were sent the Britax Affinity pushchair to review and put through it's paces!

Firstly was the unpacking which was relatively easy and took the hubby only 10 minutes to put together which wasn't bad going.

The colour pack we were sent is Sky Blue, a beautifully vibrant and rich blue which pops out against the black chassis. Colour packs are available to buy separately (and come in the following colours :
Black Thunder, Chilli Pepper, Blue Sky, Cool Berry, Cactus Green and Fossil Brown. (RRP £48)

I love the fact that you can buy the colour packs separately as one pushchair can be passed down but freshened up for each child! It makes the Affinity and even more flexible and affordable choice.

Bee loves being pushed around in the Affinity, we have only really used the parent facing option so far as he is so little still but the large seat holds him very comfortably and I love the fact the shoulder strap cushions are fixed as it doesn't let the strap chafe against his next which alot of other pushchairs do.

It is very easy and light to push, with a big handle bar which is adjustable making it easy for parents
of different heights to push.

One of the things I love about the Affinity is the breaks... they are big and easy - showing the red and green so there is no confusion. The breaks on this pushchair are the easiest iv'e experienced in the 4 years of being a mum!

The shopping basket underneath is roomy and quite large although at an angle that I have worried about things falling out by looking at it (I should add that nothing has actually fallen out)

The seat unit tilts back to lay vertical which is great as it makes it very confortable for Bee to go for a nap but I do struggle with the stiffness of the lever which reclines the chair - I have Hypermobility Syndrome and not much strength in my hands which doesn't help.

The 5 point harness is really simple to click in and to release just press the round button on the front, no fiddly messing about! We also love the padded seat and think it looks uber stylish :P

The Affinity also comes with an Anti-Theft system which will put your mind to rest, especially when travelling or on holiday.

Folding and unfolding is extremely simple and its easy for me to get into my car boot - when unloading the frame goes up in seconds.

The Affinity is a delight to push in town and I have had comments about how good it looks with its stylish roundness and bright blue colour!

I would definitley recommend the Britax Affinity, its ticks all the boxes for us and is also a travel system when purchased as a deal (although we have used it only as a pushchair)
