More Mirus Magic

27 Jun

Hi folks

As you all know, we’ve been on a little seaside getaway. I love holidaying in the UK. Especially with having a 15 month old… it just seems easier to me to holiday here. We can pack the car up with all of our essentials without having to think about baggage allowances. I just would not know where to start if I had to pack for Seth with having a baggage allowance hanging over my head. He has so much stuff that he seems to need every single day.

One of my most favourite everyday essential items is our trusty Joie Mirus. I know I have reviewed my Mirus before… but I just felt like I needed to talk about it again as it literally is the best stroller I have had… & I have had lots! Plus, when I am on social media the one question that seems to crop up time & time again is; “What buggy do I buy?” The Mirus! You buy the Mirus!


So… why? Why buy the Mirus? I use Seth’s buggy everyday. He does like to walk a little now, but his little legs get tired so quickly, so I always have my buggy for when he’s tired. The Mirus is super lightweight. Even with my back problem, I can fold this buggy with one hand & pop straight into the car. Yes that’s right… one hand fold! Every other pram or stroller I have had has required both hands. This is ideal for popping out & about in the car. I can actually lift this with one hand & pop straight into the boot. We have a Hyundai i30, so not a super big car & there’s still plenty room leftover for shopping. However, when we go away on holiday, we tend to pop this in the backseat footwell. When the Mirus is folded it stands upright. So it easily stands in the footwell. This means your whole boot is then left for luggage! Also, when at home I leave my buggy folded in the porch. It’s slimline so there’s still plenty of room. You can also fold it up when you’re dining out… so handy in busy restaurants.


I never liked the idea of having a stroller for holiday & a stroller for home. Seth likes his creature comforts – just like his Mammy 🙂 So, when he’s on holiday he wants his comfy Mirus. He adored long walks by the sea after funtime playtime on the beach. Well… I think he only stayed awake for all of 5mins. Seth falls asleep all of the time in the Mirus. In fact… if I want him to nap, I just take him out for a little walk & he’s soon nodded off. The Mirus has a lovely big hood to shade him from the Sun on hot Summer days. There are also lovely side bits on the headrest to stop your little ones head lolling off the side which could hurt their neck. You can also recline the seat. The Mirus will fully recline to a laying down position which makes it suitable from birth. You can also switch the push bar position to make it either rear or forward facing. I’ve only ever used it in a forward facing position with Seth being older.


The basket underneath has plenty room for your rain cover (Just in case!), changing bag, cardigan, snacks, shopping etc… The beauty of this buggy is that it’s well made & looks bulky & comfy, yet it’s super light weight & actually really slim. I can get into any shop & get down the aisles without causing utter mayhem lol. I’ve seen so many other parents getting wedged in an aisle because their buggy or pram is really wide. Another fab feature is the anti scuff brake No one likes a scuffed toe on their shoe. This brake works by rolling your foot back or forward. No toe flicking.

For me… this buggy just has it all… easy to use… comfortable… safe… & lightweight. We also have a Joie carseat. I reviewed the Joie Every Stage FX a little while back… I shall be reviewing again very soon as this is another thing that crops up all of the time; ‘What car seat do I buy?’. So keep your peepers pealed for that one! But, if you haven’t read my previous review, read it here.

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

Love & Huggles,
