As you know I really love this pushchair and was just looking a it online, when I happened to come across a TON of really bad reviews. So I was wondering, what do you think of it?

The main issue in the reviews I read was the front wheels having a mind of heir own and the seat reclining thing breaking so it could only either sit up fully or lay down flat

I've not read any bad reviws about it hun, I have only heard about the carseat not fitting on very well or something, other than that I've heard nothing but good reveiws, having a play with it when it came the chassis is really sturdy and I can't see how the seat recline thingy would break, its like a lifty up handle thing lol.

I think its the same as with anything, theres good an bad reveiws

you always get good and bad reviews! People are more likely to review it if they have had problems too, so there's probably millions of people that absolutely love it but haven't done a review!

I can confirm the car seat fits just fine, it's a case of figuring out how it actually goes on properly and then it's a doddle.

I have yet to use mine obviously, but have pushed it about upstairs and the wheels seemed fine.

I read bad reviews about the hood falling down in pram mode - I bashed the one in the shop up and down to test it and it seemed fine.


The best advice I can give anyone who has bought it or plans to - go to youtube (this person has heaps of videos), and watch as many videos as you can about putting it into the different modes. DH made me do this when we got it, I took the laptop upstairs and changed the modes as I watched the videos. I have NO patience for tricky pernickety things, and I can change it about just fine.

Only thing I'd say - the car seat is quite bulky, so test it in your car (if you drive) first. Also, I agree with the comments about the shopping basket being inaccessable in pram mode. The rain cover takes up almost the whole basket - however the types of handles it has means you can hang bags on them.

p.s. you can't tie the car seat in the car whilst it has the canopy hood or the foot muff attached, but the hood is very simple to remove.

p.p.s the rain cover is tricky to put on in pram mode - but again the videos helped me a lot!

The only problem i had with the pram is the hood kept falling down, not protecting baby from the sun, no biggie though as you can buy an umbrella xx

I almost didn't buy it due to a few bad reviews online. If you have a pram centre close by you, I'd recommend you go in and have a good old play with it. Get the ladies working there to show you how each bit works etc. You wont remember it by the time you come to use it but it's good to see a "professional" do it and see how easy it is.

As I said, I;ve yet to use mine and so probably wouldn't have such strong comments, but I'm glad I didn't let it put me off taking it.

I think the hood problem has been sorted with the new batch, i got mine when in december 07, it only falls down when walking along for a period of time, going up curbs, over stones etc
