The VIVO Three Wheel Pet Stroller is also available with four wheels. The Specs of both models are exactly the same, so we will be covering both in this review.
With so many Chinese, generic pet strollers on the market, what exactly makes the vivo stand out from all the other budget models on the market? To answer that question we have an in-depth review that will cover all the pros and cons of the Vivo 3 wheel pet stroller and the vivo 4 wheel pet stroller.
VIVO Three Wheel Pet Stroller review
For most people, one of the most important criteria when choosing any sort of product is the price. The Vivo is slap bang in the middle of the budget stroller price range, which makes it neither cheap nor expensive. However, as with any budget model, don’t expect to get the same quality parts as offered by the higher end, more expensive products.
Build quality & Design:
The build quality is slightly better than some of the comparable models within the same price range, it’s not outstanding, but certainly not bad. The steel frame is sturdy yet light, and the whole stroller weighs just 13.5 Pounds, and with a weight limit of 30 Pounds, it is on par with a lightweight child stroller.
The design is similar to that of many other strollers we have reviewed, and apart from the fact that there is a lever in the middle of the handle (3 wheel version only) that allows you to collapse the stroller without bending over it and pulling the release catches up. Other than that, there really doesn’t seem to be a lot else in the design department that makes it stand out.
There are also a variety of colors to choose from, which include; 3 wheel Version – Camouflage, Purple, Red & Pink Polka Dot. 4 wheel version – Black, Blue, Green, Orange & Red
The main storage area is under the pet cabin, it measures 16″ x 12″ x 7″ and can be used to store lightweight items such as pet treats, toys, water etc. The secondary storage area is a tray and twin cup holder, which is located between the handles.
Wheels & Tires:
The two back wheels are 7.5″ diameter, and the front wheel(s) 5.5″ diameter. All wheel rims are made of tough plastic and the tires are foam EVA (Ethylene Vinyl acetate), which is very typical for a budget stroller.
Two leash tethers are included with the stroller, which is great if you have an escape artist or artists. Although, the leashes are non-adjustable and quite short, for small pets they should be adequate.
The brakes on both rear wheels on both the Vivo 3 wheel pet stroller and Vivo 4 wheel pet stroller are the basic, foot operated, plastic cog and pin type found on most budget strollers.
The front wheel can be locked into position, which is ideal if you want to push the stroller one handed or plan to use it on uneven ground.
Interior Cabin & Canopy:
Although the material used on the pet cabin and canopy is quite thin, it is still durable and lightweight. This may only be a problem if you have a cat with sharp claws or a dog that likes to nibble on things.
Mesh windows located at the front, rear and top of the cabin are designed to stop bugs, provide good Air flow into the pet cabin and give your pet a clear view of the outside world. The top window has a cover that can be folded back, allowing a clear view of your pet. The rear window/door can be rolled up and secured in the open position with a Velcro fastener.
Inside the cabin is a covered, foam mat that can be removed and washed. The rest of the stroller fabric cannot be removed.
The cabin dimensions are: 21″ (L) x 13.5″ (W) x 20″ (H). As with any pet stroller, make sure to measure your pet or pets before purchasing.
The canopy can be un-zipped and folded back towards the handles, allowing for easy loading and unloading of your pet.
Once again, the assembly instructions are very poor, although Vivo have thoughtfully provided a video, which you can view below.
- Can be folded very easily
- Relatively cheap price
- Folds to a compact size
- Two leash tethers
- Lockable front wheel
- No rain cover included
- Not designed for Jogging or off-road use
- Handle is not adjustable
- Zippers are not the best quality
What you get with the Vivo pet stroller is a good balance of Quality and Price. What you need to understand is that the Vivo is a budget stroller, and as such, you won’t get all the bells and whistles of a more expensive model.
Just by looking at the Amazon reviews, you will see that the Vivo has a good overall rating and some glowing recommendations.
The bottom line is that the Vivo is an average, budget pet stroller that offers nothing new in terms of design and build quality, however, for this price it is worth adding to your shortlist.
