The Babybee Comet is an excellent pram package. It may have been superseded by newer models from Babybee (like the Rover, Duo and Luna) but it still looks great, is highly functional and has all the bells and whistles included.
If you’re not familiar with Babybee, then it’s a brand you should consider putting on your short-list. It’s a online-only Australian company and its award-winning prams are proudly ‘designed by Aussie families for Aussie families’.
The Babybee Comet is an affordable solution to the dilemma of finding a stylish pram that won’t break the budget. It is cheaper than its newer Babybee stablemates and has been in run-out mode for a while now. As such (as I update this article in 2021), you will likely only find a second-hand, pre-loved Comet for sale.
The Babybee Comet is a lightweight, all terrain travel system that will to take you from newborn to 36 months and last you through multiple children.
Packing up and taking off is a breeze with the Comet’s compact, quick and easy fold. It also has an adjustable; handle bar, wheels, seat position and can easily swap between bassinet and stroller.
Like all Babybee prams, the Comet’s safety is second to none and perfect for all types of adventures whether it be urban living or all terrain exploring.
