Nuna is a brand I’ve known of and admired for a while now. Everything I’ve seen and heard about Nuna is that they have really well designed. So when offered the chance to do a Nuna TAVO stroller review I jumped at it, and I’m so glad I did. It’s become my go-to single stroller for park and playground play dates where I know either Maddie Grace will walk or I’ll wear Tripp. It transitions easily for both of my children to use when they need it and isn’t difficult to push like a double stroller making it perfect for my life as a mom of a toddler and infant.
First this stroller is easy to open with just one hand. The seat reclines very easily with one hand and lays completely flat making it great for newborns. Plus the Nuna Pipa carseat clicks into the TAVO with no adapter needed. It has a great spacious seat, more spacious than any other stroller we’ve tried, making it a great stroller for toddlers as well. It can fit a kid up to 50 pounds which is ridiculous.
The SPF 50+ canopy on the Nuna TAVO stroller is amazing. It’s huge, and there is a zippered extra sunshade that extends ridiculously far to keep the sun off of your baby. There’s a magnetic peek-a-boo window to keep an eye on your little one in the stroller, and a great zippered mesh ventilation panel to keep the airflow in the stroller which is particularly great on hot days at the park when your baby is napping in the stroller and you don’t want them to get too hot in there.
The Nuna TAVO stroller has a great smooth ride and handles most terrains flawlessly. The foot brake is super easy to use as well. The TAVO features a nice sized storage basket. It’s not the largest I’ve seen on a stroller but it’s really great for the compact size of the TAVO. It closes easily and is compact enough for the trunk of a small car. I love that it closes and can be easily wheeled to wherever you need it to be.
Basically the Nuna TAVO stroller has every feature you could ask for on a stroller. Since I have two kids, if I’m going somewhere that I know I’ll want both kids in the stroller for an extended period of time, like the mall, this isn’t the stroller I would grab just because it’s not a double stroller and can’t transition into one, which is a bummer. But double strollers are so difficult to maneuver that I would rather have a single stroller whenever I can; so for play dates where I know MG is going to be up running around and not in the stroller this one is perfect. The only downside I can tell is that the seat isn’t reversible to face mom. However I read that the reason that Nuna didn’t add that feature is because to do so would mean they would have to make the seat shorter, and one of the really great things about the Nuna TAVO stroller is the great amount of head and foot room it has, even for my tall toddler.
This stroller is amazing quality yet somehow comes at a really great price. The Nuna TAVO retails for $349.95 and can be found at Nordstrom. You can also buy the Nuna TAVO Travel System that comes with the Nuna Pipa car seat that is highly acclaimed for $649.90 at Nordstrom.
