Advantages: Nice simple buggy to use, folds small.
Disadvantages: Nothing to really mention.
I bought this buggy for my third son sometime in 2007/2008, he was born April 2007 so I am guessing it was probably early 2008.
I bought it because my eldest son plays Rugby and dragging a huge pram in and out of the car and through fields of mud was no fun! Getting a more compact buggy meant that I could neatly fit it into the boot without getting mud everywhere!
I always used it with an additional footmuff as my little one was still quite small and I didn't want him getting cold.
This buggy is a lovely colour a nice bright turquoisey blue with a limey/yellow colour on the inside of the hood, the hood is nothing fancy, it has no side clips to hold it in place, I think it's only there to hold the rain cover in place! The rain cover doesn't cover the whole hood but sit's on the edge of the hood and pop's around the bar's to hold it in place.
There's no tray's or buggy bars but that does allow it to fold it really neatly (umbrella fold).
It doesn't recline fully as there's the cross bar of the pram's frame at the back and this stop's it reclining much, also the basket isn't very deep as the pram's frame sit's directly beneath the basket also!
It's nice and light though and very easy to push, the foam handle did start to split not long after I bought it too, but I put a strip of tape on top of the split which seems to have stopped it.
I recently dug this out and washed it in the machine, I had to unscrew about 10 screws but it's easy enough.
It washed up brilliantly and I will more than likely be using it with my baby when he's a little older.
The wheels still look really good and they haven't worn away at all.
Summary: A neat, light weight buggy.
