The past few weeks we have had the pleasure of reviewing the new Affinity 2 from Britax with the Lagoon Green colour pack.
One colour pack is included in the price of the pushchair and is available in six colours (Lagoon Green, Cosmos Black, Flame Red, Wood Brown, Ocean Blue and Mineral Lilac). I love the idea of a colour pack as it means that should you want to, you can purchase a separate colour pack to give the Affinity 2 a whole new look!
In pure Britax fashion. the putting together of the Affinity 2 took minutes. Click in the wheels and seat unit and voila!
Putting the colour pack on the seat unit didn’t take long either. The hood just zips on to the back of the seat, the seat pad and cushions simply hook in the seat and the basket liner just pops in.
I have to admit, then when I first got the Affinity 2 out of the box and saw that the handlebar was leather, I was super excited as it just exudes style. The feel of the leather is so much nicer than rubber – and the handle is adjustable.
I also love the foot brake. Gone are the days of hurting your feet when trying to put the brake on. The simple one push on the red or green easily allows you to put the brake on and take it off with ease.
The seat can also be used rear or forward facing, which is ideal for younger babies when you want to interact with them. There is a carrycot available to purchase separately for the Affinity 2, or you can use it as a travel system with the integrated CLICK & GO® receivers.
The basket isn’t particularly large but is sufficient enough. There is also front and rear suspension to ensure a smooth ride.
The Britax Affinity 2 seat unit is suitable from 6 months until approximately 17kgs (3 years).
Zachary will be turning 4 in September but is small for his age (he weighs 15kg and 38 inches tall). However, he did seem just a little tall for this chair. His feet easily rest on the foot bar of the chassis and his head just skims under the hood covering.
Overall, the Britax Affinity 2 is an awesome, all round pushchair. If you are looking for a pushchair that will last then I would definitely recommend this one!
