Advantages: Nice to push, looks nice, comfortable for baby, nice design, comes with footmuff, bag & raincover!
Disadvantages: None in my opinion
Whilst I was pregnant I was browsing on ebay and came across this Hauck Travel System with a starting price of 99p. I stuck it in my watch list and kept an eye on it over the next few days. It was also local to me so I was saving on the delivery aswell!
It had 2 bids on it with just 2 hours left and still it was only on £2.40, so refreshing my page every so often I was glad to see there wasn't a bidding war going on, with just seconds to go I put in my bid of £15.01 and hoped for the best, I wasn't being tight with my bid and I know £15 isn't much for a hardly used pram but I had about eight different ones in my watch list all at low prices so if I didn't win this one I had back ups!
I did win the auction for just £5.60! £5.60 for a hardly used travel system ~ Bargain!!!
I felt a bit embarrassed handing over £5.60 but I did win it for that amount and therefore that is all I paid!
The woman I bought it off demonstrated how to fold and unfold, how to attach the car sear etc, and that was basically it. I have read reviews saying that when bought new you need to put the wheels on yourself but as I bought it second hand this was already done.
I bought it in the same colour way as above, Winnie the Pooh and it's really cute. Everything was immaculate and the seller had been truthful in her auction listing stating it had been used 10 times if not less, the wheels still looked new and I was really pleased with my bargain.
I had done a bit of research before buying it so I knew it was suitable from birth, that is with the car seat attached or using just the pram as it has a multi position backrest.
The pram came with a footmuff, bag and raincover, the footmuff is nice and cosy and can be used with either the pram or car seat, it has a parent tray with two holes to hold drink .... But don't put anything hot in these as there's danger of scalding the baby! And a tray on the front rather than a simple bumper bar. The basket underneath is an ample size but it is a little tricky getting the shopping in when the pram is laying flat.
The car seat has a little hood which is much better than the Graco travel system I bought 10 years ago as that didn't have a hood and I was always afraid of my baby getting sunburnt as the pram hood didn't completely cover him.
There's a ditty Winnie the Pooh teddy hanging on the right side of the hood and to be honest I don't see any real purpose in at as my son takes no notice what so ever! It looks good so does act as decoration but that is it!
Fitting the car seat into the car was easy and much more simple than fitting my silvercross one. The seat belt fit's around neatly and slots into the clips on the sides.
The pram folds flat and fit's neatly into the boot of my rather compact Rover Streetwise.
Overall I find this a lovely easy pram to use and push and am very pleased with my £5.60 spend!
Summary: The best £5.60 I have ever spent!
