Graco Mirage Travel System
Advantages: Sturdy, includes infant car seat
Disadvantages: Heavy, large, hard to turn at times
I bought this for my daughter for 150 euro in Smyths toy store just two months before she was born. I was looking for a simple all in one buggy that I could also use as a car seat for the first 9 months. This suited my needs perfectly and cheaply too.
I have always found Graco to be an excellent brand as they are so affordable and their products are reliable and dont tend to break or wear as quickly as cheaper alternative makes.
This travel system consists of a buggy which has a 5 point harness, reclining back, a food tray and a large storage basket beneath. I found this basket was really useful as I could fit loads into it. Saved me when I forgot my bags!
It is not the lightest of buggies and can be a bit of a haul to push around town all day but as I knew my daughter was going to be using a stroller in a few months I really didnt want to spend money on an expensive three wheeler just for the sake of it.
There is also a baby car seat which can be used while your child is under 9 months old. It can be placed in yor car easily and taken out and just clicks into place into the buggy turning it into a pram. I loved that I was able to see my daughter when she was very young and how if she had fallen asleep in the car seat I wouldnt have to disturb her and take her out.
There is also a window in the canopy above the seat that you can look through and see the child. After a while I took off the bar going across the front as I found it wouldnt fold properly with it on. However if you are using the baby car seat this has to be left in place for the car seat to click into place. It was very easy to store away even though it was quite heavy and did take up a bit of room in the car boot also.
Its good for value and if your not going to be passing this down quickly to your next child I think its a bargain. Otherwise I would go with a better model if aiming to have more children soon after your first.
Summary: Good quality buggy if your on a budget
