When it comes to purchasing a pram the question "will it fit" is a big part of the decision making process. For those are short on space and need a pram that will leave enough room in your car boot for shopping the babybee Comet or Comet plus is a great option to consider. Its easy to fold down, and the option to easily remove the bassinet or seat makes it easy to get into small spaces – like your car boot, or store out of the way at home.
Having a full sized pram that’s lightweight and compact doesn’t always mean that you need to cut down on features either, when folded the Comet (and Comet plus) frame is a minimal 29cm deep, 61cm wide and 78cm tall but still packs a punch in the features department. Including everything you’d want in a pram that takes you through from newborn to toddler; full-sized bassinet, adjustable handlebar, reversible bassinet/seat, full recline seat, large extendable canopy and storage for days, it ticks all the boxes!
With a surprise feature that lots of babybee mums and dads love, the frame is also self-standing. This means you can find any spare corner of your home to store your Comet frame when not in use, with the bassinet or seat placed beside it.
Car boot size is always a deciding factor when choosing the right pram for you. The babybee Comet is able to fit into some of the most compact boots; the Toyota Yaris hatch being one, and the Suzuki Swift being another. Both are tiny car boots, and still able to accommodate the Comet. The rear wheels of your pram can be swiftly removed with the simple push of a button easily accessible on the outside of the wheel itself, and make your pram even more compact then before, giving more room to fit all your shopping in as well! Win!

How to check if the babybee Comet fits in your car boot
Start with our specifications images, then get out the tape measure and get measuring.
Another hot tip when looking at your own car boot, is to check where the anchor point for your car seat is located, generally it’s in a non-obtrusive place, such as the back of the last row of seats, but in some cases (like with the Hyundai Getz) it’s located on the floor of the boot itself, making the boot size a little harder to deal with when it comes to storing your pram in there. It’s always handy to check, any pram may well fit based on boot dimensions as a whole, and it’s important to check other factors like the anchor point for car seats, and where the tail gate actually closes.
Take your time doing your research on dimensions vs. features to find the perfect pram for you, and as always, if you’d like help our customer service team is here, with young babes of their own and plenty of pram tips.
