The Nuna TRIV™ is a great compact stroller, ideal for city living parents or jet setters. The TRIV™ is cleverly designed with a seat that can face both ways and fold both ways, and can easily convert to a travel system depending on your little one's preference. Featuring spring suspension technology, a lightweight compact one-hand fold and is self-standing when folded.

The ring adaptor can even fold with the frame, creating the perfect sidekick to your everyday adventures. Plus, The TRIV™ also features the MagneTech Secure Snap™, the self-guiding magnetic buckle that automatically locks into place.

We put it to the test with our trusted parent testers. Keep reading to find out what they thought of the Nuna TRIV™ stroller...

We have been using our new Nuna TRIV stroller for a few weeks now and honestly have nothing but good things to say about it. It arrived super quickly and was very easy to assemble!

Amara absolutely loves it. She looks super comfy, and she can sit upright too as the stroller isn’t in a slouched position. It’s super easy to assemble out of the boot and not too heavy, its compact, we love the tray space underneath, and it reclines up and down with barely any effort.

It is definitely one of the most attractive strollers I’ve seen! The timber hood and bar fits perfectly against the black. One of my favourite functions is that it glides on almost any surface! We’ve had issues with previous strollers where the wheels get stuck on stones, uneven path, pavements! There is no effort whatsoever when pushing this pram, it almost pushes itself!

I honestly couldn’t recommend this stroller enough – I’ve had constant positive comments and glances from people, and I now couldn’t imagine life without it!

I was so excited when our new Nuna TRIV stroller arrived, even the box is labelled “so excited”. The stroller arrives pretty much built, you just need to attach the wheels which simply click on. Within 5 minutes, it was out of the box and ready to use.  Included in the box is the car seat ring adapter, rain cover and a seat insert. 

It was clear from the beginning that the Nuna TRIV had lots of great features that you don’t see often with other strollers. Our first use of the stroller was a full day out at the seaside. I needed to take coats, food, rain-cover; everything we may have needed while being away from home the whole day. I filled a weekend bag which fit in the storage basket with ease, there was still space to fill with soft toys! This really is a rare find with strollers and even larger travel systems. The handy phone/snack pocket on the back of the seat comes in handy too!

I love the fact the seat has a breathable mesh back section which would be amazing during warmer summer days and being able to attach the super soft and comfortable insert for the colder days. One of my favourite features of the Nuna TRIV is the UPF 50+ extendable canopy, it’s a fantastic size before being unzipped to extend even further.

Once extended it reveals large mesh viewing windows on both sides, providing ample ventilation and my daughter loved being able to see outside while the hood was down. There is also a large viewing window to the top with a magnetic flap, again my daughter loved playing peek-a-boo while walking along!

The Nuna TRIV is described as a compact stroller, once I put it next to our pushchair, I noticed the seat on the Nuna TRIV seemed bigger, there was more headroom and was wider. My daughter looked more comfortable in the TRIV and has more space around her, however the frame to the TRIV is slick, light, and compact. It’s not bulky, extremely smooth to push and feels a lot lighter.

The fold is quick and simple with a leatherette handle to assist when carrying it in and out of the car. I also compared both when folded and although the seat is bigger, the overall fold was smaller and much lighter. The TRIV has allowed me more space in the boot of the car which is the main reason I wanted a more compact stroller.

If you are looking for an attractive, lightweight stroller, bursting with features, then the Nuna TRIV has you covered. I am yet to find a better-looking stroller.

My week started off with a message from Natural Baby shower saying my pram was going to be delivered the next day, The following morning I received a text to say the hour time slot my pram was going to arrive, to say I was excited was an understatement. I’d had my eye on the TRIV for several weeks after a poorly chosen first travel system.

When the Nuna TRIV arrived, it was 1 single box and I was surprised at how light the box was considering its size I managed to lift and carry the box alone The box contained: The chassis, The seat liner, The car seat ring, and adapters, 4 wheels, bumper bar and raincover with an instruction manual which contained written instructions and pictures

The TRIV was extremely easy to put together (even for me and I struggle with basic IKEA items!) the instructions were not the best, but it is a very straight forward process.Once put together I practiced with the folding mechanism which can be done single handed, it is a simple pull then push button on the back which folds the pram shut then you simply pick up by the handle for a flat and lightweight bundle.

The Nuna TRIV is advertised as a compact stroller ideal for city living and jet setting parents, but I found it to be so much more. The wheels are made with rubber coating and foam filled plus, spring suspension makes the stroller great for all terrains; I tested this on the cobbled uneven streets of wells and pebbled covered and grass park walkways and gave my little one a comfy ride which he slept easily through. It is also very easy to manoeuvre around busy shops and cafes and has a large basket underneath to store all changing and shopping bags. The handlebar can be moved for height adjusting simply on the chassis by sliding the sides up and down and the brake is a 1 click footbrake which can.

The best feature on the pram is the seat, it is an all-season seat, The backrest is a mesh panel which provides ventilation for the warmer weather stopping babies from overheating then for cooler days you can add the seat liner which is made of Merino Wool fabric that is so soft and hypoallergenic – perfect for babies skin. It also has a no thread harness which is easy to adjust as baby grows and has 3 recline settings from sitting upright which will be great when he is a toddler, to nearly a complete flat system for napping (you would have to purchase a bassinet for a completely flat lying position for newborns ) my little man loved the 2nd setting so he could view the world.

The TRIV seat unit is also reversible so you can easily switch from parent to world facing with no effort, just a simple touch of a button to lift off the seat. The selling point for me on the pram was how easy the TRIV is to fold and how compact it becomes that you can lift and store in a boot 1 handed, if like me you have to drive to any shop or even a walk then this was a must.

The TRIV fitted with ease into my boot and even left room for shopping bags to also be stored. I also tested this on a smaller hatch back and had the same results. I purchased the Nuna winter Footmuff from Natural Baby Shower to go with a pram which is compatible with all Nuna prams and is made of a blend of yak wool and Tencel lyocell fiber which is very soft and warm. 

In summary I would recommend the TRIV to all parents as a suitable all terrain pram which is so light for maneuvering round shops and storage for any small car or house which lacks space for storing a pram. 10/10.
