Advantages: Cheap and cheerful
Shortly after my godson started to walk I bought him one of these ELC buggies and he loved it. His mum was quite open about letting him play with "girls" toys, which gave me the idea of buying this as a gift and I seem to remember it being a bargain at only £5. This was a number of years ago now as my godson has just turned nine.
This was a successful purchase, so when my daughter started to walk I bought one for her too. Again it was a hit and we would have to take it out with us so she could push it around in the park etc. Luckily by now (about five years later) ELC had done some design alterations and the buggy is easy to fold, and folds up "umbrella" style small enough that it can go in the bag under "real" pushchair. My godson's buggy didn't fold, or at least we couldn't get it to and we would have to hook it over the handles of his big pushchair when we went out with it.
My daughter is now a little big for this buggy and we have brought her a more sophisticated pram, however my son who is two loves this little buggy and likes to push it around when we are out and about. Where as my daughter did like to put dolls and teddies in, my son never bothers with these and seems quite happy to push an empty pushchair around. Perhaps this is a boy thing as I seem to remember my godson did the same?
The buggy comes in a pink and blue version, I got the blue one as the pink one was just too pink and sickly! It's a very basic model, with two front pointing handles of about 60cm, a material sit-up only seat with a three-point harness and four sets of two plasticky wheels which make quite a sound on pavement surfaces. The buggy is very light indeed.
Since buying this buggy for my godson inflation has kicked in and it cost £7 when I bought it for my daughter. It's cheap and cheerful but appears to be good quality as we have never had anything break on it. A great toy for both girls and boys!
