      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Good buy with multiple uses

      Having a baby means buying so much stuff which is all new to me. After a few months of looking for a pram I decided on this travel system in black mainly because I wanted value for money and together lot of use out it. I chose to have it in black due to not knowing the sex of my child and wanting to be ale to reuse for a second child. Having a travel system takes the stress out of having to chose a car seat and a pram due to it all coming in one. I could not believe how easy it was to collapse the pram with a one twist handle, the pram was also lighter than lots I had tested. Meaning it is not touch strain after having a baby. The car seat slots on easily and can be detached again with one pull. It has slightly larger wheels which I find great due to living in the country and doing lots of road walking. It comes with a carry cot also but I did not use this, also comes with drinks holder and temperature gauge! I would recommend this pram. I purchased the pram from kidicare for £269 and felt this was a good price for a full travel system.

      a good pram

      My sister had this pram for her baby a few years ago and I chose it with her. It was the best one out there cos it comes with a car seat and a carry cot that fit in the pram. The pram chair can be laid down or sat up as well so you can do a lot with it. You can have it as a puchchair with a seat and put the seat down when the baby falls asleap, you can have the carrycot in it to make a pram and have the baby face you and you can put the car seat in it to make the baby higher in the pram. The carry cot and car seat means that you don't have to wake the baby up to get them out of it or to go in the car. The pram is really big though and can be annoying to take around the shops. I've taken the baby out loads in this and it is hard to get round small corners but is really good on the street because it's really sturdy and going off the pavement doesn't wake the baby up. There is a really big shopping basket underneath the pram which holds loads of bags, especially if the baby is sat up in the pushchair cos it makes more space for shopping! The pram has a long handle that goes across the back of the pram so you can't put your shopping on the handles like you can with strollers but the shopping basket means that you can hold even more than you could with a stroller. The handle has two drinks holders and a little compartment in the plastic that you can put little things in like money. On the lid of the compartment there's a little digital screen that tells you the time and temperature - this is really handy cos you don't have to keep looking at your watch or phone. The temperature is good aswell cos you can see if its getting cold and if you should put a blanket or something on the baby to stop them getting too cold. The pram folds up when you aren't using it. It folds forwards so it is still as wide and deep as before it's just not as high. You can fit it in the boot of a car but there won't be much space left cos it is really big. Everything works really easy and I learnt how to use it in a few goes so I could take the baby out myself - and not worry about being trapped by the car with this huge pram that won't fold down! It is a really good pram and can be used in loads of different ways so I would tell any new mum to go for this one. My sister paid £300 for hers but they've been round for a while now so you can probably buy it for a bit less now, or on ebay to make it even cheaper.

        Disadvantages

        A strong but bulky travel system

        I brought this system for my son when I was pregnant, we wanted a travel system that was good value for money and this system provided alot for the money. We had it in the chocolate brown suede effect and brought it from Toys 'r' us, using the vouchers in the catalogue and it was on offer at the time, although the store quite often has this travel system on offer. It cost about £240 at the time and this included, the forward facing pushchair, car seat and base (not isofix), carrycot, bag and raincover. It is a sturdy, firm, comfy, spacious pushcahair which has a padded seat cover, easy clip harness with straps that don't twist, a very large shopping basket underneath, great for all your bits and your room for some shopping. The car seat fitted in the car easily as it comes with a base which you can put in your car, this is not an isofix base but it makes it very easy to take your baby in and out of the car because it just drops in and you pull a clip at the back and pull the seat to release, very easy. The carry cot fits really well on top of the pushchair and is very cosy, and fully washable, I loved this for my little son, and you can see your baby really well and they are protected from all the elements. The raincover is very large and covers the whole pushchaie unlike some systems where it is only an apron that attaches to the hood, although I found it quite difficult to attach correctly. The travel system also comes with two handy trays; a parent tray, great for bits and pieces and a child tray/bumper bar which my litle boy liked to hold onto! The travel system folds really easily with one hand. The disadvantages of this travelsystem are that you can only have your baby facing you using the carrycoy or car seat on top of the pushchair as the pushchair seat will only point forwards. Also the pushchair is quite bulky, when folded and generally, if you get the bus alot this may put you off as its so bulky, I also found it quite difficult to go around shops without bumping into things, unless they were very big shops, overall the travel system does the job, but I would of preferred something less bulky!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        has done us well and still using daily a year on!

        We took several months to make a shortlist of pushchairs we liked, based on our needs and wants, and eventually decided on this one, we then went to see it in a local shop with the view of buying cheaper online if we were 100% sure, but we left the shop car park an hour later with it in our car boot - that's how sure we were! It did everything and more that we expected of a pushchair, and was within our budget. It just seemed to tick all the boxes, whereas other pushchairs left 1 or 2 boxes unticked! On taking it out for the first time with our newborn son we were happy with it, and he is coming up to a year old and I still use it daily, and am still happy with it. I have my grievances with it, such as the size and bulkiness, but I can't pretend I didn't know this when I bought it, so not an issue for me. I get out and about with, mostly walking, and find it easy to push, and easy to shop with thanks to the large drop down basket, and my son seems to find it comfortable enough. It has plenty room left in the seat so will last a good while longer I'd imagine. I find the parent tray on the top really handy, and feel lost without it when using my other lightweight buggy that we got for trips up to in-laws and now keep in the car for convenience. The suspension has never been as great as I had anticipated, but maybe I had set my sights too high expecting a totally bump-free ride for my child! My only slight criticism of the whole package is the size of the carrycot we got, as it didn't last long before being too small, and it was such a shame to have to stop using it. We also had the car seat and in car base and found both to be very good quality, and very handy, hassle-free at it's best!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        I would buy it again

        The car seat The car seat is rear facing and can be strapped directly into to the car using the seatbelt or the base can be fitted to the seat with the seatbelt and the chair clipped into the base. Using the base is by far the best solution as strapping the chair into the car with the belt is a mammoth job. The base does take up a lot of room, if in the front of the car the chair has to be pushed back, and if in the back the front seat has to be pushed forwards but it is easy to remove and not too bulky or heavy to fit in the boot and is really easy to strap into the car. Whichever way the seat is put in it is securely fitted and does not move around. The chair itself is padded and comes with a small baby insert for newborns, to support the head. The straps have comfort pads and can be adjusted both in length and to different height positions. When in the chair my son was comfy and secure. The only drawbacks are the seat is very heavy to carry around although it fits on top of the buggy easily and the pads on the straps are too large and restricted my son's movement slightly. The Buggy The buggy saw sturdy and easy to push. I have had mine for 6 months and have not had any problems. The buggy can be used alone as an outfacing chair with or without the new baby insert or with the car seat on the top as a rear facing chair. The buggy seat is padded and comfy and allows room for movement, the straps are adjustable and the trap on the front can be removed. The under tray is quite large compared to other buggies and can hold quite a lot if weight. The rain covers provided with the buggy are effective but are complicated to fit. The seat has 4 positions but the flat position is not quite flat and the upright position is too far forward but the other settings are fine. The buggy folds flat but is still quite bulky, it fills most of the boot in a small hatchback but is easy to put up and down. The system. The system has worked well for me, the chair fits easily and securely on both the buggy and the car base. The base in the car has made it so easy to use taking clipping the seat into and out of the car and buggy means no disturbing my son. I would definitely recommend this system if you are looking for a buggy and a car seat, it is a little more expensive than buying separate items but is money well spent. I would though caution that the car seat is very heavy to carry around so if you do this a lot then it is probably not right for you.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A BIG travel system but has everything you need

        I choose this pushchair because I wanted a modern travel system with the traditional carry cot and lie flat features. I actually got mine 2nd hand from a family friend and she had used it two or three times. The stroller part of the pushair has 3 recline positions however I find that I can only get mine to be sat upright or fully reclined which can be annoying. It has a 5 and a 3 point harness so it is handy to alternate the two. The Travel system I bought is in a different colour I bought it in Black and Tan so that it was good wheather I had a boy or girl as I wasnt sure at the time. I also bought the carry cot which is designed to put newborns in however mine was only used twice as my little boy couldnt fit in it at 3 weeks old which I found very difficult as I wanted him to lie flat however he was too small for the stroller part and too big for this carry cot. Therefore I have had to use the car seat attachment for the first 2 months of his life which I didnt really like to do as its not good for there little backs. The PLUS point of the car seat is that your little baby is facing you and also in the cold weather you can fold both parts of the hoods over and you have a small mesh hood to still keep your eye on them. It is a one hand fold for ease and an amazingly large basket at the bottom with a limit of 15kg but I put lots more in and it holds fine!!! You also have 2 drinks holders, a clock and a digital temperature gauge (which has a hidden storage area underneath), a plastic storage area which I use for my little mans spare dummies. I also have the cosy toe for this model which now is amazing as he is 4 months and loves to sit up in the stroller and look out at the world! The idea behind this is that it lasts till your child is big enough to walk. I am not sure if this will happen for us as my little man is quite tall and I am not sure if he is going to out grow it! The main down size I have found is its size and weight. It is very heavy to lift for us smaller ladies and takes up a LOT of boot space even in my partners BMW we struggle to fit shopping around it. I cannot manage very well on public transport unless I am lucky and get a drop down bus so I find that walking is the best option. If I did have the option I am now not very sure if I would of choose this model I probably would have gone for Graco's cheaper model Mirage as a friend also found public transport difficult and swapped hers for this model and I have put my son in this and liked it aswell. I think it is a brilliant pushchair for people with there own cars however if you rely on public transport opt for Gracos Mirage pushchair as I say its lighter and still has all the features of the Quattro Deluxe.

        Disadvantages

        has good and bad points

        i purchased this pram for my second child and i found that it has its good points and its bad points. Firstly it is very easy to collapse and put back up with its one hand fold system, the car seat which attaches to the pram for younger babies is of great quality, comfort and safety. I found that when your child then gets older and you go to use the pram as a pushchair that things dont seem so good. Firstly the drinks tray that is attached to the front of the pram gets damaged quite alot when putting the pram up and down when outdoors as it scratches on the floor. also the hood of the pram does not come down low enough onlt the long piece of material which hangs down off the back of the hood, meaning if it is windy weather your child is not very protected from the wind and i used to feel that the rain cover was needed for full protection hope this helps.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        All-in-all a good pram

        I have to say that I did like certain aspects of the pram, however I do believe that there are certain aspects of the pram system that could be adjusted. One of the great features about this product, especially the pram is that you can get one for a very low price and many stores often have special offers if you look hard enough. The car seat is relatively easy to clip into both the car and the pram which is also a bonus. The bumper bar which is attactched to the pram is also good for older babies who like to sit forward. (My friend also had this pram and her daughter refused to lie back.) Another positive aspect is the shopping trolley which is reasonably sized, however when you have a baby that cannot sit back and you need to use the recline function, it can be very difficult to get to the basket. Also, as this pram has four sets of wheels rather then three, I have to say that I did not find it as easy to move as some of the other prams that I have had.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        I would recommend thjis travel system to most parents, it is safe, secure and snug. Also hassle free

        I purchased this travel system when I was pregnant with my son; it first caught my eye because it looks very stylish. This travel system is exactly what it says on the tin so to speak a very useful 'travel system', It comes with a car seat which is very easily connected to the pushchair, it just clicks into place and can be done one handed. For extra safety the pushchair has little material tabs at each side which are linked onto the car seat to hold it firmly into place. There is a separate base for the car seat which is easily attached in the car safely and securely using seat belts. (I appreciate that this base will not fit all models of car, however I would recommend professional advice on that matter as I am not a professional.) This base enables you to just simply click the baby car seat into the base within seconds without having to mess around with the seat belt every time. However, the car seat will also fix into a car without the base securely using seatbelts. I am aware that extra bases can be purchased separately which is ideal for two car families. I find this feature is ideal whilst out and about in the car, the main advantage I have found is that the same as many babies, my son always falls asleep in the car, therefore I can transfer him in his car seat straight from the car into the pushchair, hassle free and without having to disturb him in the slightest. The pushchair is very easy to collapse and can be done one handed, however the only disadvantage in my opinion is that it is very large when collapsed and I have had to remove my parcel shelf in my Peugeot 206 to enable me to fit it into the boot, still then it is a tight squeeze and I am worried about damaging the wheels when closing my boot. The pushcair itself is very good quality, it is outward facing, it has four different positions to recline and very soft padding, therefore very comfortable for baby. There is also a tray at the front which has a one hand release, and yes it is easy to release with one hand. I find the travel system easy to control, there are many passage ways where I live with the silly metal railings which are very tight and you have to walk in and around. It seems to be able to control around these very well, and I am certainly no expert pram pilot! The other advantages about this travel system is that many matching accessories can be purchased; I have purchased the Graco rain cover, the cosy toes and the carrycot. I believe you can also purchase a matching changing bag. I would recommend purchasing the carrycot if you are not in and out of the car all of the while as you have to take it out of the base to fold up the travel system. I found it of great use on the school run as I walk there and back everyday. I have not gone into too much detail on this item as it is not part of this purchase package.

          great value

          we were bought one of these as a gift before i had my little girl. i could see straght away that it was going to be too big for me to use so i cheekily asked if we could swap it for something smaller. it was a very nice pram when put together. the car seat was lovely i actually bought one to go on my new pram with the right connectors and i loved it. but the pushchair was huge. no chance at all of been able to use on public transport eaily without feeling you were taking up alot of the room meaning other had to fold there prams up :( they come with some great accessories too like the carry cot and car seat with base, cosy toes rain cover and changing bag! more than alot of prams ive had lol a great system and a great price but too big for public transport users like me

          Brilliant pushchair, built to last and will last!

          I bought this pushchair when i was approximatley 5 months pregnant with my son. The pushchair fully reclines, has a five and three point harness (you can alternate the two). I chose this particular model because i trust the brand and it came with a car seat. The model i have (it is a different colour to the picture, more of a beige and black) also came with a carry cot for newborn which fits snugly in the push chair and you can see you baby through the peephole in the hood. This was an amazing feature as i also used it to let my son sleep in when we were visiting relatives, save carrying several different baby things with you (and lets face it babies always come with lots of baggage even if your just nipping into town) When using the car seat attatchment, again your child is facing you. Both the car seat and the pushchair have a hood attatchment so you can happily cover ypour small baby from the wind and still keep an eye on them through the spyhole on the pushchair hood. The main 'seat' of the pushchair has a special head rest for when baby is big enough to sit up prpoerly, which supports the head brilliantly. It has a four position recline from sitting to fully horizontal. My seat covers are removable, but are a bit of a nuisance to put back on! It is a one hand fold for speed and ease. It also has a HUGE shopping basket underneath. The weighth limit is 15kg, however i have used my pushchair many time to go food shopping and have put a lot more than the recommended weight on there!! Not forgetting us mums, Graco have provided us with drinks holders, a clock, a tempreature monitor (outdoor tempreature) for added peace of mind. There is also a drop down plastic storage container perfect for storing your phone (beware pickpockets though!) or sunglasses etc. On the model i have there is also a secret storage compartment under the clock to keep those extra nick naks (ie spare dummies??) Overall i think this is an ideal pushcahir for most mums. Yes they can be expensive, however they are well worth it, I have used mine for 2 years, and have walked many miles with it. It is a sturdy durable pushchair. It will if looked after last from birth to five easily. There are a couple of down side, mainly due to the size of the pushchair, it takes up a lot of room in car boots, and you can go on public transport with it, but depending on where you live you may have to wait for special 'kneeling' buses with buggy parks on them, though you may not get on if there are more than 2 other stroller type pushcahirs on there. However i would recommend just walking (if feesable) because the pushchair will take it. As i have said, i have had this pushchair and been using it for over two and a half years, the wheels are still in excellent condition and despite a small tear in the rain cover (two years olds would rather get wet!!) It is still in excellent condition. ITS WELL WORTH THE MONEY!!

            Great pushchair, still going strong today

            This is the travel system that we picked for our son 5years ago when I was pregnant with him. Ours came in a different colour, we had the blue set but other than that it was exactly the same. We got the pushchair, fully padded car seat, rain cover, base for car seat and a carry cot. When we became pregnant with our second son who is now 1 we re-used this pushchair and we were suprised at how well it had lasted and the condition it was in when we got it down from the loft. We just wiped it with a bit of hot water and it was as good as new. The suspension on this pushchair is amazing, it folds down well and can be stored in most car boots. The wheels are strong and sturdy and the frame can be wiped clean when needed. The car seat comes with all the required padding that can be removed as baby gets older and must be very comfortable as both our children loved to fall asleep in there! The only things I would say are 1) dont bother going for the carry cot option - we tried to use ours once and when we put our baby in he disappeared half way during our walk under the cover! 2) We got a buggy board for it when we became pregnant with our second son and although it fitted it would have been impossible for my oldest son to use it because it went under the pushchair. The basket under the pushchair is great for holding odd bits of shopping and if you get some pushchair clips it is a great system to load all your shopping on to. We found this pushchair was also a good height for my boyfriend to push who is 6ft 2. It is easy to fold down and there is plenty of small storage areas to hold drinks, purses, iPods or mobile phones. There is also a temperature and clock display. A great pushchair and is still going strong today, we gave ours to a friend who had a baby boy in Feb and it still came up in perfect condition!

            Brilliant buy!!!

            Ive had a lot of buggys .Some i've just got bored of & some have just been rubbish & a real waste of money.I have to say that the Graco Quattro deluxe was one of the good ones. It's suitable from birth & has a really well padded seat so baby is always comfy. The seat covers come off with out alot of effort & although they recommend hand washing ,i have always put them in the washing mashine on a light wash & they have come up perfect every time. It has nice big wheels & is really easy to manover around the shops but we did take it through the woods a few times & it didn't do as well as i hoped. Baby was shaken around quite alot so would probably be better off with something with pump up tyres If you were "off roading" all the time . It has a big shopping basket which is strong & easy to get to even when baby is laying flat as it drops down , a fantastic feature in my book. It folds with very little effort & can be done with one hand. The only down side to this buggy is its size when folded.If you have a small car it may be a problem but as i say that is it's only down side in my oppinion. All in all a fab buggy & good value for money.

            Great value for money

            It is a forward facing pushchair, which has a number of reclining positions, it includes a removable carrycot which can be used for small babies, it also comes with a car seat which can be fitted to the pushchair which is also good with small babies and does not disturb baby when transferring form car to pushchair. The car seat was very easy to use and fit into car. It has the latest technology suspension system and puncture proof tyres. It is easy to fold up, however I had trouble fitting it in the boot of cars. This pushchair is complete with cup holders, clock, temperature gauge, pocket (which I found handy for keeping loose changed and keys, which meant I didn't have to root through my bag when in a rush) and also has a case for sunglasses or phone. It has a large drop down basket underneath, which was brilliant, was big enough to hold, shopping, handbag, raincover, etc. My pushchair had a chocolate and lime design, which I think looks really funky and I had matching changed bag and cosytoe. I thought it was very light to push and very sturdy I found that this pram was brilliant. It have everything you could need. Was very easy to assemble, I managed to put it together with no problems while I was 9 months pregnant! In my opinion this pushchair is great value for money, I would recommend it to any parent, its comfy for baby, light to push, easy to steer, looks great, durable, storage space (shopping).

              great for shopping and buses and walking, not great for cars as very big and bulky

              Graco Quattro deluxe travel system I actually had this bought for me by my uncle (but I picked it) when I gave birth to my daughter nearly 2 years ago, and this pushchair is still going strong. Price roughly is around £260-£300, but that is for the car seat aswell What comes with the package: The Graco Quattro deluxe travel system is a pushchair suitable from birth. I used it straight away from my daughter being 3 weeks old. You can put it straight back so it lies flat and there are 3 other seat positions, I loved this as it allowed me to put it straight back when she fell asleep, one downfall is that it is hard to adjust, you need to get the bars just right underneath, but once you've mastered it, you find it straight away. The trouble is then, is you have to teach everyone else how to do it. And if they mess about with the bar trying to lower it flat while she's asleep it will wake her up. It is suitable for weight 0-15kgs which is equivalent to 0-33lbs. It is forward facing, and I liked this idea as soon as she reached about 6 months and I could put her into the pushchair without the car seat (but I will get on to the car seat later) and she could start seeing a different world, I introduced her to cars and buses, making the noises of things, and one thing she started doing as soon as I put her in the front facing part, was she started saying hiya to everyone who she could see, it was funny at first, but when she says hiya 50 times in the local supermarket it gets a bit annoying. But it amuses her. It has a 5 point safety harness to it which I find holds my daughter in perfect. It comes up between the legs, but sometimes this could be a bit tight depending on what she's wearing. The straps come round each side near the bum and then shoulder straps each side come down and they all fit into each other. She can't get out of it. It has got lockable swivel wheels which I find is fantastic when you're going round corners and the locks not on the wheels, it's so easy, it glides, and it is great for going round shops aisles, and it is easy to swivel round when you've got your hands full, again though you need the knack to do it. Of course you can also lock them so they go in straight lines but I didn't get on with this to well as I kept having to go in straight lines instead of swivelling. The wheels are big rubber ones, that look and actually are really sturdy. It has also got suspension on all wheels and this is great for going down steps! I know you shouldn't really use it for this but it does work fantastically and it is a really sturdy pushchair and it can stand the bumps. Where I live there is about 10 to 12 steps to get down for the bus stop, and I use it every time for that and it hasn't done any damage to it whatsoever. The brakes are at one side of the back wheels, it has got linked brakes, but I find these miss their slot in the grooves on the back wheels quite alot. I find you have to do the brakes each side for them to be done properly, which in itself is quite pointless when they say it's supposed to be linked brakes. The shopping basket on this pushchair I love to bits, it can stand a great lot of weight! About 10-15 2 litre bottles, (even though you're not supposed to put that much in there, you know how us girls are with shopping, saying we are only going in for one thing, and come out with 20!) if I know I'm going shopping I always take my pushchair (I have got a buggy aswell) it can fit lots of bags in. Getting them out can be a little bit of a problem as you have to pull a metal bar on the top of the basket and again it's something you have to get the knack of, but once you get the idea of it, you can get it right almost every time. It has got a parent tray which I find is very useful as it's got a clock and a temperature gauge on it, so I'm never late for a bus, and I keep my bus tickets in the parent tray It has got an extra case to put on the top, but I never use this as you have to remove it every time you want to fold the pushchair. I didn't find this really useful as it kept coming off, it didn't fit quite right anyway and every time you opened it, it fell off. It also has a play tray which has a middle bit where you can put snacks or something which is easier on me as I can just put the sweets in there and my daughter can help herself rather than me keep giving her one at a time and having to keep stopping. It also has 2 cup holes one either side. The only trouble is you have to get it off when you fold it up, and it yet another thing that needs a knack to it, as you have a tiny button to press and it's got to be right down and you holding this button whilst you try and wriggle this play tray off. One side is just a spring clip but the other is really too hard to get off sometimes. It has an adjustable leg rest but I haven't really found this very useful, only in the beginning when she was very small, I put it up vertically so she didn't fall out when she was laid flat. It has got an apron that you just clip round the sides at the top and the bottom, that I put on if there is a wind or if it's cold as her legs will get cold otherwise. I find this very useful, but I can't get to her play tray as its covered up by the apron so I have to either give her the sweets/crisps in her hand, which then the apron gets mucky more quickly. It has a removable washable cover, but it doesn't say how difficult it is to remove. One day my girl wasn't very well at all and she was sick all in her pram, where she sits, I then had the task of trying to take the covers off to wash them, wow what a job, 2 hours and several screws later, ha that's the hard bit, it doesn't tell you, you have to unscrew about 20 different screws from all over the pushchair, but also you have to remember where you took them from, as some are hidden. Not a task I would do every week! When you have finally got the cover off, it is machine washable at 30 degrees C The handle height is 106cms which is ok, but if you have to turn it widthways on a bus you have to lift the whole pushchair up off the floor so that people can get by you. It states it is a 1 second one hand fold, yeah if you have very very strong wrists; it's something else you need to get the knack of as you have to turn both bits at the top at the same time as pushing the button across and turning the bits and go forward with the whole lot. I can honestly not do and could never use 1 hand to do this. So I think this is slightly misleading. It also says its flat fold, but I wouldn't say flat as such. Folded dimensions (L) 93, (W) 60, (H) 40cms. It is free standing when folded The weight of this pushchair is 15.2kg which is a bit on the heavy side, but as I use it all the time on buses and walking with it, I don't really myself need to fold it up and carry it. It has got an aluminium chassis which is one reason why I picked this pushchair in the first place, it looked very sturdy with the metal bars going down the front of it. I always thought if my child gets hit by something, she's more likely to survive in that than them little pushchairs that have hardly got anything to them. (Not supposed to be morbid, sorry. The car seat The car seat is fantastic, it has got an EASY removable washable cover, ok, you have to try and discover how to get the hood off first! it fits well into the play tray well, but again it takes a certain knack to get it just right to lift off, you have to lift a big red handle at the back of the car seat but then you have to try and push down and then lift up really quickly to get it off. The car seat also has a headrest for newborn babies which I found very useful and my girl sat in and upright very nicely. It also has harness protectors cushioning where the harness is on the baby so it doesn't leave marks. The harness to adjust is tricky, because you have to find it inside the car seat itself located between where the legs go in the middle of the seat. Just another thing you need the knack for! It has got a carrycot that comes with the pushchair, that you put your baby inside and can put it inside the pushchair when it's lying flat down, but I didn't really use mine. It's got a large canopy for sun and rain protection, which is really good, but I found this was really useful in the early days as I could put the hood of the car seat when the car seat was on the pushchair and the canopy of the pushchair together and it kept her in her own little cocoon but the pushchair canopy has got a very useful zip up see through window, so even though she was enclosed I could still see her. I loved this factor. And last but not least, it has an auto baby car base with the car seat. This enables you to keep it in the car and there is a long bar so you can put that bit into the footrest of your back seat, then you can clip the seatbelt round this car base, and just slot your car seat into it rather than having to strap your car seat in the back seat every time. It really is a useful invention if you have a car. Overall I love this pushchair as I shop alot, and I always catch buses, but it's not very good or easy to fit into the boot of a car as it's so big.
