Meet Mirus 

22 Feb

Hi folks,

Last week we received a beautiful Cherry Red Mirus pushchair from Joie. We’ve had lots of fun giving it a test drive. I’ve decided though, that rather than doing a one off review… I’m going to continue a rolling review. That way, I can give a good review on all aspects of it. I mean let’s face it… Pushchairs aren’t exactly pocket change, so you want to know that you’re getting the best value for your money possible. So… this post is all about my initial findings, then in 3 weeks time, we shall be taking Mirus to Centre Parcs with us. Also… Summer is fast approaching, so I shall be taking Mirus to lots of family days out to the seaside, farm & wildlife park! I’m also going to test drive it on public transport. Every single inch of the Mirus shall be covered 🙂


My first impressions… lovely lovely lovely pushchair. The Mirus can be used forward & rear facing by simply moving the push bar. Seth is at an age now that he likes to be super nosey… so we’re using the pushchair forward facing. A massive thumbs up from me has to be the anti scuff brake! I hate the fact that all of my shoes get scuffed on the toe from flicking the brake up. But the Mirus has a lovely brake with no need for ruining your fave shoes. The seat fully reclines making it suitable rom birth. There’s an easy to use handle/lever on the back of the seat making it easy to recline if your little one nods off & you want to make them that little bit comfier. I also love that it’s a one hand fold. I am so cack handed & clumsy – it’s unreal… and even I can fold the Mirus with just one hand. It falls into a fold position really easily & automatically locks into position. When folded, it stands up right. Great for storage! It will easily fit into small boots too. We have a Hyundai i30 & it easily fits in our boot, however, we popped ours in the footwell of the back seat stood upright. The basket on the bottom is a great size… much bigger than the Silvercross Pop basket. All in all… this is very lightweight… yet substantial. If you’d like to see more… watch a video here.


So… where have we been with Mirus? Where I live we have lots of small, little narrow streets & cobbles. I live in a pretty little olde worlde village. Big chunky prams don’t really fit well. Mirus has taken those cobbled side streets with total ease! The full suspension on the wheels also stops Seth from bobbing about too much. We’ve also taken Mirus to restaurants… coffee shops & shops. I’ve managed to navigate tight aisles with ease. It’s crazy because you think the Mirus is quite big with it being comfy & sturdy… yet its actually smaller & more slimline than you think. I find it easier to handle in a shop than the Silvercoss Pop. The length on the push bar is perfect too. I sometimes find that the bars can be a little short & I end up feeling as though I’m holding really down. I’m 5ft 8′ & the height is perfect. The wheels are in a great position too – there’s no falling over the wheels. I hate it when the wheels are too close to your feet & you spend the whole time kicking & tripping over them. This is really comfy to push.

Seth clearly finds it super comfy as he literally falls asleep every time he’s in it. I bought a universal footmuff for it for £10 off Amazon to make it that little bit warmer for winter.


This pushchair is also fully compatible with Joie 0+ infant carriers… no adaptors needed. So in effect… this would be the only pushchair you’d actually need to buy. So, if you’re on a budget, you could save money on buying big expensive travel systems. The Joie Mirus retails for around £99 to £120. This is a serious bargain, for what you get. Or you can buy it alongside the Infant carrier as a pack for around £160.

Overall… I can’t fault this pushchair… so far it’s been utterly flawless. I can’t wait to take it on vacation with us. I shall be sure to take plenty of pics on different terrains to let you all know how it fairs.


Thanks so much for reading & I hope you’ve found this review useful.

Love & Huggles,
