What's your favourite pushchair ?

Hi there

I Am becoming a bit of a pushchair collector lol. I have a quinny buzz 3 and a lightweight stroller.
We end up using the lightweight stroller as it's just easier to put up, is really light.
Our 7 month old looks really uncomfy in it when he's asleep as it doesn't lie flat, it's also hard for my
Husband to push as he's over 6 ft . I'm looking for the "ideal" pushchair. The buzz is annoying because
You have to take the seat unit off to collapse it.

The pushchair needs to be lightweight, fold small, adjustable handle, recline flat, maybe rearward facing option but not
Essential. So what's your favourite pushchair and can you recommend my next purchase ?

I have a mamas and papas Luna, had it from birth. Really easy to use, folds flat, adjustable handle cos I'm 5'2" and DH is 6'3".

Fully reclines, comfortable for LO, forward facing.

My friend has exactly the same one which has lasted for both her children.

I like it.

Having spent the past 5 months heavily researching every pushchair on the damn market, I was quite taken with the Mutsy system. Lay flat car seat, huge carrycot, forward and rear facing pushchair that collapses down all as one, very roomy, even with a 3 y o in it! It's also quite a high rider, so little ones aren't just looking at knees and feet! You can even get a step up board for a toddler to use and a seat with a steering wheel that let's toddlers think they're driving themselves. It's telescopic handle is the longest on the Market too, the whole thing is extremely light.
Having said all that, I ended up going with the Silver Cross surf, but that's because I had fallen in love with it a long time ago and I got an exceptionally good deal on it. It was very very close though.
I have also had the privilege of seeing the new iCandy Strawberry and have to say I was less than impressed. It's made out of like a fleecy material and grabs bits and dust like you wouldn't believe. It's also extremely low, and I could see myself getting bad back. It does all fold down as one which is a bonus, but the cons outweighed the pro's, disappointing as I had high expectations from it.
I think I'm going to become a pushchair salesperson!!!!

I have 3 pushchairs.....Phil and teds for the country walks, baby jogger city mini for the all day out affairs and Jane sonic for quick nip to the shop or if we are somewhere m will be walking a lot so hardly in buggy. The baby jogger city mini had an amazing one hand fold, several recline positions including flat an amazing hood shade and looks really comfy. Light to push too. Definitely check it out! X

I have a Mama's & Papa's Pliko Switch which was great when I used to clip the car seat to the frame and now in pushchair mode it is nice & comfy for Dan on long walks but it is big & heavy so have a buggy in the boot. I had a Chicco Winter London first which was fantastic but I broke the back wheel & so got a full refund and now have the Chicco Liteway which is also great as it lies flat & is super light and easy to push. It also reclines with one hand.

My mum has a Mamas & Papas Ollie in black & white & they love it but the back support is raised using a 'drawstring' method which is a bit fiddly with baby in but the handles are high for tall people.

Seems like you might have made your decision though so good luck.

I haven't bought 10...yet!!! Only 4, and only one of those was brand new. I guess the thing is that there is no perfect pushchair and, at different stages, you kind of need different things. So buying secondhand and selling it on once you've finished that stage makes perfect sense. I did this with our first pram, got 6 months use out of it and still amde a £20 profit selling it on!

We looked at the iCandy's but the 2nd seat was always too much of a compromise, bit like like the phil&ted, there was always one seat not quite as good.

So, we went with the BabyJogger City Select.
Both positions/seats are equal.

Right - narrowed it down to 2 !

Baby jogger city mini or bugaboo bee

Baby jogger city mini is forward facing only but has an awsome fold - you literally just pick it up by the handle and it all collapses itself. It will be so easy getting it in and out of the car and could easily do it 1 handed.

Bugaboo bee looks awsome and drives superb. It can be rear or forward facing. More difficult to put up and collapse. You deffo need 2 hands ! (4 steps for collapsing as opposed to 1 for the mini)

So it comes down to how important rear facing really is I guess... Oh and the price, bugaboo £430, city mini £200. My heart is saying the bugaboo, i loved it the moment I saw it, my head is saying the city mini as it looks so practical.

if you don't use public transport and only use the car then I wouldn't worry about the fold. I bought the city mini because I use the bus a lot and need to be able to fold it one-handed very quickly at a stop (the buses I use only have room for one open pushchair).

Also, the baby jogger has a wider set of back wheels than the bugaboo bee I think so the latter may be better for that. Other than the supermarket I can count the number of shops I go into with a buggy in a year on one hand so this wasn't a consideration for me.

What's the character of your baby? As soon as she could sit up Martha was always craning her neck round when I had a rear facing pram so having a rear facing option wasn't a plus for me at all.

Love all this buggy talk!

Hayley - I loved my iCandy Peach Blossom Twin for the first six months as the arrangement with the carrycots was brilliant. However, as soon as my Twinkles were old enough to move into the bigger seats it was rubbish. Very restricted for the LO in the backseat (and the one in front wasn't much better) so I sold it on ebay. £1,100 new and I got £761 for it, so it wasn't too much of a killer. I switched to the Nipper 360 which isn't very pretty but it is functional, comfortable, fits through doors and is and a dream to push. If I was buying a posh new twin buggy now I'd be tempted by the new Bugaboo Donkey.

what about a babystyle oyster? I saw this on kiddicare and it didn't look dissimilar to a bugaboo bee (but cheaper!) but I couldn't find a shop in the vicinity where I could actually look at it. Gets good reviews though

Babystyle oyster is nice, it was between that and the quinny when we got the quinny. Only got the quinny as we could get a used one off eBay, the oyster was new at the time, will check out the weight.

Well this morning I have got the quinny out and had a play with the proper seat unit as we've only really used it with the car seat and adapters. Good news is it folds no problem with the seat in forward facing position.... Bad news is OMG
It weighs a ton !!!

Jen I don't use public transport and baby is happy forward facing in his stroller and rear facing when we use the quinny an his car seat... So I think he's fairly easy going. From my point of view it is nice to see him when pushing him along as I can't stop looking at him sometimes lol.

Tomorrow we are going to John Lewis, they have both in stock so we can compare them

If you're planning on having it for a good long while then you might also want to consider seat size. One of the big plus points for me was that the city mini seat is pretty generous so even when Martha gets bigger she won't be squashed in.Some of the reviews slate it for not having an 'upright' enough position. It certainly isn;t as upright as my phil and teds but we have the bumper bar and M thinks it is fun to sit up holding on to that if she wants to be more upright. Also forgot to say that she never daytime naps in her cot now but prefers the city mini. When she is tired she will go to the buggy and try to climb in it. Even if it is raining outside she just naps in that, fully reclined, in the hall! So I guess it must be really comfortable.

here's hoping - seriously? 10 pushchairs!!! :snigger:

I just bought pushchair number 7, but hasn't been delivered yet so will test it before deciding whether to keep it or not. In my defense, 2 of my pushchairs were second hand, and I do sell them on again. I have a main twin buggy, a single buggy, a proper running buggy, and a cheapo foldup buggy for traveling abroad (ok to get trashed by baggage handling). That's not excessive, right?

We liked the Bugaboo Donkey too - still very unsure about the icandy peach blossom due to the rear seat issue. One of my friends swears by it for her twins which is making me think it must be good but the Bugaboo Donkey is a proper side by side so they each have some room.

I only ticked the 10 box as it didn't go higher!

I have had 3 babies & many more foster babies!! When mine were little I always started off with proper prams but by the time they were 6 months old they would be in strollers. I then changed these every 6 months or so, I think I had a pushchair fetish ;0) I've had singles , doubles & triples!!!

This time Dh has said I have to buy 1 & 1 only. I really like the Graco Symbio, but its practical not pretty. It has a carrycot, carseat & the seat unit although this cannot be used until baby is 6 months. I have found it on simplybaby with everything included for £450. Only downside is that the frame is huge & with all bums on seats in the car I will struggle to get it in. I honestly think that I will need a good stroller too or am I just pushing my luck?! ;0) Either way I'm not buying anything until Grace is here, she is due December & if the weather is anything like last year I may not leave the house until the end of Feb. Hence a carrycot would be a waste of money.

Buying 1 pushchair is hard! xxxx

All this talk is making me want to buy another now!

I've only ever had one pushchair, the car seat clipped onto it and it folds down nice and easy. But now I'm thinkingof a stroller. Any advice or recommendations for a stroller or do I stick with my one and only? My LO is 16 months.

Flic, if you are happy with your pram then stick with it...once you cross over to the dark side & start buying strollers you just can't stop!

I am very happy with my Chicco Liteway but it isn't particulary designed for rural living, more urban as only has two single wheels at the front rather than 2 double ones. It is very nifty at turning and super easy to put up & down & recline though so suits me.

I wish I had just been able to stick with my orginal choice but it was just too heavy & we didn't want to take it abroad as the baggage handlers & coach drivers have no respect for them!

Well after thinking and looking around even more I am going off the peach.....just cannot get over the rear twin being not able to see anything.

Soooo.....I have seen the Baby Jogger City Mini Twin Stroller in a beige colour (side by side) and also a Obaby Zynergi Zoom Tandem (both from Tesco) which my mum gets 10% off and we get the CC points. Any thoughts?

Together they would be around £840 but that's still cheaper than the icandy....we would need to buy a couple of car seats but I guess we would have to anyway. My thinking is that we could use the side by side when they are little and to go on longer walks and use the tandem when I go shopping. Both are lighter in weight than the icandy too.

GOOD NEWS ! We've finally decided !! We are ordering the Baby Jogger City Mini Single ! Its just so easy to fold compared to the bugaboo bee and the recline is great compared to the Maclaren quest we were looking at.
There is a new 4 wheel version that we are going for in bright racing red, its the same weight as the 3 wheeler but i just think its looks better and it would be better for dodging dog mess ! LOL. The City Jogger got the Gold mother and baby award for best lightweight pushchair too.

This is the one we are getting

Baby Jogger Mother and Baby Pushchairs and Prams 11-26-029 - BHS Direct

Alot of the online shops don't have pricing, but managed to find it for £225. Cheapest I found for the 3 wheel was £189.

Can't wait until it arrives :D

Isn't it just !

It didn't come with a rain cover so that was £20 and also got a footmuff to keep him warm in the winter !

Very excited , although not sure what to do with the quinny buzz now !lol

I went to see the Obaby Zynergi Zoom Tandem this morning and ITS GREAT! Definitely going to get one, just not sure which one yet. The one I have seen on ebay is great value and they were a professional couple who had barely used it in 6 months so it was like new. Even if that one goes, it is the buggy for us!!!! No more icandy ideas for me.....so pretty but not very practical at all!

Looks lovely Hayley and it makes sense to get one from eBay if it's in good condition. How does it weigh compared to your other options, weight was an important factor for us and I could see myself struggling with the buzz to lift it into the boot.

It's actually really lightweight which I was surprised about - 17.1kg which compared to the icandy is 0.1kg more. It's 5kg more than the city mini but I still think we will get that too

I've just bought a fab relatively cheap single buggy as I quite like taking each of my Twinkles out separately from time to time. The Petit Star Zia+ is around £100, folds like a dream - just press one button and it is down in a second - has a nice upright seat but full recline, comfy straps, is light and lovely to push, and comes in gorgeous colours (I have it in purple). It is very similar to the Quinny Zap but is far cheaper. I am tempted to get a second one for when DH and I take the girls out together but he'll kill me!!!

So my tally of buggys is now 3 - the iCandy Peach Blosson Twin until the girls outgrew the carrycots, then the Nipper 360 Double which is our main buggy, and now the Zia+.

i got a hauck 3 wheeler which was handy for walking and going on the beach - it even had a brake! it was a bit difficult to steer so sold it and bought a mamas & papas 03 sport. great for the beach etc but big n bulky - no good for the car!
i had a petit star zia for the car - a great light weight buggy but as bubs got bigger/heavier (hes 20months old now weighs 2stone is the size of a 3yr old and in size 8 shoes!) so i sold that and have a cheap 'startrite' £20 buggy from argos, which i keep in the car
all buuggies have there pros n cons. but id recommende the 03 sport as the handle height is adjustable so all heights can happily use it - but just by a puncture repair kit if you do alot of off roading lol :snigger:
