Anyone got a Zeta Vooom? Or can you guys recommend a cheap, lightweight buggy please?

I am looking for a cheap, lightweight buggy that I can use for travelling abroad.

The thing is, I don't really want this item as I love my iCandy Cherry but it's no good at all for going on a plane with as it's in two pieces. Therefore, I really want to spend as little money as possible but at the same time I want something half decent.

I've come across the Zeta Vooom on E-Bay and it seems to fit the bill, has anyone got one?

Thanks!

Hiya,

i can reccomend the Mamas & Papas PiPi exclusively from Argos, it is a lightweight stroller buggy that lies flat from birth, folds like a Mclarens, looks gorgeous, there is a fushia pink one and a turquoise one, and only £69.99, i have it as a 2nd portable buggy for london tubes & buses!

not heard of the other one

I love my Petite Star Zia from Argos. If you google you, they also have a seconds website where you can pick them up really cheaply. I bought for travelling but it is so much easier and lighter than my fancy one.

Hi Gracie - which stroller did you go for in the end? I'm in a similar situation as you - I have an iCandy Cherry that won't travel well. I don't want a new buggy, but know I need one for travelling :)

Hi Chilli

I didn't! By some natural miracle I am now pg with number 2 so no need to go to Barcelona for tx so no need for a buggy! I am now looking for a tandem one instead! :snigger:

I reckon I would have gone for the Zeta Voom though, it looks pretty good and was very reasonably priced, have a look on E-Bay. I wanted to spend as little money as possible on it! Mamas and Papas had a reasonable looking one too which was about £65 I think.

It's a shame i-Candy don't make something that folds down in one piece isn't it!

Oh that's brilliant news! Congratulations Gracie! Stories like that make me go all warm inside :)

Yeah, Ebay sounds like a good idea. I think my only criteria is (as well as being reasonably priced) that it needs to recline to flat. Buying a pram/buggy the first time was hard, I'm having the same trouble this time with the amount of choice available. I'll be off to the local Mothercare shop to try them out - see how many LO will let me try out.

Chilli, last year before I went on holiday I was having a browse round my local charity shop and picked up a fantastic mamas and papas stroller, pristine condition, really like new. Cost me €15, I was over the moon with it. I didn't want to buy something new and then take it on a plane and have it hammered about by baggage handlers and get all scraped and dented so this done the trick nicely. It's been away on trips with us 5 times since then and still going strong.

Maybe worth a try if you have any decent charity shops around, mine has a whole section just for babies and kids stuff, it's amazing what some people hand in to them. x

Hello I came across this as I'm in similar situation! Coincidently I used to have an iCandy cherry but sold it for an iCandy strawberry which folds with seat on. I'm going away this summer, not sure whether to take my iCandy or get a cheap buggy? Any suggestions anyone

I bought a Mama's and Papas Pipi stroller today from Argos. It was reduced from £70 to £55. I checked eBay out and the used ones (I've no aversion to a used buggy, by the way) were around £40, delivery costs were about a £10 so for an extra £5, I got it straight away, didn't forget about the auction, didn't get outbid and didn't have to wait in for a delivery.

I like the way that the seat reclines - rather than having fixed positions in the chassis, its a strap that you adjust to the exact position that you want.
