      Good value buggy.

      This buggy is lovely to push and seems comfy for baby. The cosy toes is nice, decent size hood, ok shopping basket. Very easy to fold but mine broke while doing this (the bit which clicks in at the sides when you put it up snapped so only one side clicked in) nice and compact especially when travelling on buses. Raincover is good, easy to use universal ones too. Could do with better wheels as they're a little flimsy, i prefer bigger ones so they last longer. I like the fact you can get this buggy in nice colours too (mine was lime green) and as it's mamas and papas it's very easy to get accessories.
      I got this as i needed a wider buggy for my eldest as he's quite chunky and was squashed into standard ones. This has quite a wide seat so was far better for him.

      Lovely well priced pushchair. Would definately buy again and reccomend to others

      This is a lovely spacious, yet lightweight pushchair. I purchased my luna when my son out grew his bulky heavy pramette. I wanted a pushchair that would last his as he grew, that looked stylish and that wouldn't break the bank. I'm not a fan of strollers so thought it would be a tall order finding something that met my requirements. As soon as I saw the luna I loved it! The lovely patterned liner really enhances the look of the pushchair. It is light both to push, and to lift in and out of the car. It has a simple folding and opening mechanism and fits easily into the boot of my car. It is a very roomy pushchair, being of a decent width in the seat pad, but not overly wide overall, and has a number of recline positions from upright to almost flat. Most importantly, it looks stylish and a lot more expensive than the price tag!

      Love it!

      I got the Mamas and Papas Luna when my first son was about a year old. The travel system we had was just so big and heavy that I really wanted something easier to use. I had seen Lunas around a fair bit and liked the look of them. This, combined with the good reputation of the Mamas and Papas brand, made me go for it. The model I have is the Luna mix, which has the option of various coloured interchangeable hoods.

      The Luna seat is both tall and wide, so there's plenty of room for toddlers. My first son was in it until he was 2 and half and there was still plenty of space for him to grow. I would have kept using it if I hadn't needed to switch to a double when his baby brother arrived. It is a very flat seat, by which I mean there is no shape to the backrest. This is fine for older ones and is great for lying newborns flat, but I wasn't altogether happy with it for the stage in between. When my second son was around 5 or 6 months he was wanting to sit rather than lie down, but because the seat is so wide and has no shape, it gave very little support. The result was that he flopped around a bit and would end up slumped to one side. For a one year old though it is perfect. The seat can recline from any position from lie flat to fairly upright by means of sliding the strap behind the backrest. I much prefer this method to having fixed positions you have to choose between. There is also an adjustable leg rest. I tend to have this down most of the time and then raise it up for naps to make it more comfortable.

      My model has the floating harness, which is fantastic. Basically, where the harness would usually attach to the backrest of the seat, it doesn't. Instead it loops around your child, meaning that they are free to lean forward. My son was so much happier with this than being fully restrained. It did take a bit of getting used to though, since he could be leaning to the side and potentially bump his head on something if you weren't paying enough attention. The bumper bar stopped him from leaning too far, so I didn't see it as a dangerous harness, although I know others feel that it is. The one issue I have with this harness is the fact that you can't use a footmuff. Well, you can, but you can only put the waist straps through it, so the back portion has nothing to secure it and it flaps around. I chose to just use the apron that came with the Luna instead. This is fairly warm anyway, although not all that roomy for a toddler. I had to tuck his feet into it rather than hooking it under the leg rest in order for him to be able to move his legs around.

      The hood is one area that I felt let it down. It is quite small and doesn't offer much coverage. If my son was leaning forward he was entirely exposed to the rain/sun. I found I had to use a rain cover or sun shade more often than I would have liked. I wasn't impressed with the Luna raincover either. It is structured to form a big bubble as opposed to following the shape of the seat. Presumably this is so that it fits over when the pushchair is being used with a carrycot or carseat, but as I didn't use either with it, I just found it a hassle. It took up way too much room in the basket and the boning in it got bent out of shape. I bought a universal raincover instead and got on fine with it.

      The bumper bar is easy to get on and off, you simply push a button underneath and it slides out. You can also release one side and swing it out of the way for getting baby in and out. The cover isn't very good though. The material is flimsy and it isn't removable so you can't put it through the wash either. Mine got a rip in the bumper cover quite quickly.

      The handle is comfortable to hold, with a padded foam cover. It adjusts to a variety of heights using the buttons at the sides. Most people will be able to find a suitable position.

      Basket size is something I look for in a pushchair, and the Luna doesn't disappoint on that front. There is space for a couple of decent sized shopping bags in there. It is shallow though, so you can't just throw bits and pieces in there, they do need to be secured inside a bag. I don't like to hang bags on the handlebar because the pushchair does tip quite easily, so the basket is really the only place you can put things. It is also prone to tipping when the seat is reclined back, so you do need to be careful of that.

      The fold is simple to do, you just pull up two sliders on either side of the frame and it collapses down in one piece. Opening it back up is easy too, although mine in it's old age does stick a bit and need some persuasion to click into place.

      The brake is easy to apply and has a push on and push off mechanism which is friendly to toes in the summer! It feels secure when applied too, which you might take for granted but isn't always the case.

      This pushchair is beautiful to push. It has solid rubber tyres which give a smooth ride without the risk of a puncture. I've had quite a few objects, such as nails and glass, stuck in the wheels and been very thankful that they weren't air tyres. They did leave small holes, but it hasn't affected the performance. The centre of gravity is quite far back, meaning that it is very easy to steer one handed and to get up and down kerbs. It does also mean that it is liable to tip though, as I mentioned previously.

      Despite a few niggles I really do love this pushchair, especially for toddlers. The ease of use and the way it glides along are more than enough to compensate for any issues I've come across. I do prefer something with a more shaped seat for younger babies though.

      Great all round pram, wish I had got one earlier!

      When my son was about 18 months I started to struggle to push our big heavy travel system so the hunt started for something lighter and smaller to regain some space in our car! He was a bit late at walking and still needed a hand to hold so the wrote off all two handled strollers. There is a few other similar looking prams to this around and we tested them all out in our local baby shop and this was our final choice. I had initially liked the looks of this pram more but obviously there was other factors more important.

      Pros-
      Can easily be pushed one handed with a heavy toddler or empty (really is a dream to push!)
      Spacious seat that my just turned 3 year old can still fit in comfortably
      Good sized shopping basket
      Adjustable handle is great for me (5 ft 4) and partner (6 ft 1)
      So easy to fold, not found anyone that can't fold it down yet!
      Clip on side to lock it closed for when its folded down, no worries when lifting it in and out of car!
      Bar across the front is great for attaching toys without worry of them being dropped!
      Locking swivel wheels mean it can handle all terrain (unlocked around town, locked on rough ground)

      Cons-
      It is quite awkward to carry folded for more than a few meters (maybe I never got the knack?)
      If you have a (heavy!) changing bag on the handle and empty seat and shopping basket it could tip over

      Good second pushchair!

      We brought the mamas and papas Luna pushchair as a second pushchair for our son. We brought it when he was around 1 years old.
      The mamas and papas Luna pushchair is lightweight but sturdy which was something we were looking for as we didnt want to have to buy another pushchair when he got a little bigger.
      The price was a massive factor for us but we also didnt want to compromise on quality so this pushchair was perfect for us. Easy to fold in and out and lightweight enough to put in and out of the car boot.
      Wheels are good - had no problems on the terrains we've been on.
      A plus side is the pushchair comes with a rain cover which is obviously much needed with the great british weather!
      I would recommend this for older children (above 1) as I feel a newborn would move around in this pushchair too much and wouldn't fill it out enough for it to be safe!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I loved this pushchair, and will recommend it to anyone - good, reliable and stylish!

      Firstly, let me tell you a little bit about the Luna pushchair before giving my feedback on it. It is made and sold by Mamas and Papas, and comes in a range of colours (we got the pink one). The basic package retails for £159, and this gives you the pushchair, hood, raincover and bumper bar. You can additionally purchase seat adapters to attach a carseat, footmuffs/liners and parasols. At one point you could also purchase a carrycot, but M&P appear to have discontinued this now.
      The pushchair is suitable from birth, and features a fully recline-able seat. It's recommended age range is from birth to approximately 3yrs (or weight 15kg).

      Our experiences;
      We bought this pushchair exactly 18months ago - our beloved City Stroller had broken (the front wheel fell off, sob!) and we needed a reliable replacement quickly. I was recommended Mamas and Papas for durability, and because of our budget we chose the Luna.

      We ordered direct through M&P, and the order arrived quickly, safely and well packaged. The pushchair itself simply requires the wheels to be clipped in (it really is that easy!), it needs putting up and then off you can go.

      Look wise, I personally really like the Luna. It's simple and stylish, but with a range of footmuffs available, it is easy to individualize from other pushchairs. The basket underneath is large and roomy, and most of all - easily accessible, even when the seat is laid back. It fits a couple of good sized grocery bags in it, and you don't feel like you're going to loose them half way home.

      The straps have good lengths and are easily adjustable through the frame of the seat. The bumper bar is very useful for keeping child safe - my daughter loved to hold onto it as we travelled around in the pushchair.

      Steering wise - as the 2 front wheels are individual (rather than standard double wheels), this makes for easier steering. The pushchair will actually go to where you want it to go, rather than becoming either stuck to the ground or having a mind of it's own. As they are reasonably large wheel too, it makes the pushchair easier to use in more Winter-ish weather.

      The seat has multi positions varying from properly upright, to completely flat. This is operated by lengths of harness and a simple fastening grip - very easy to operate, even with the child in the pushchair.

      The pushchair folds down well - folding reasonably flat. It has a lever at each side to pull up, which then puts the pushchair down. To put it back up, you simply unfold and click back into place. You do have to bear in mind that this pushchair is quite wide at the back wheels though, and although it does fold flat, it still retains it's width.

      It is a good and reliable pushchair - we've certainly gotten our money's worth of use out of it. Our daughter is almost 3 now, and just getting ready to come out of the pushchair properly (she is 90% of the time anyways, except for longer walks). And I will be sad to see the Luna go - it's been a reliable thing and I would certainly recommend it to anyone.

      Oh, and if your seat unit develops any faults (ours did within 4months of having it - fraying down one side) - simply ring M&P up and they send out a replacement seat unit, no quibbles. Could not fault the customer services - within 3 days of ringing, my new seat unit arrived. Yes, I had to fit it myself, but it was a straightforward job using a series of click fastenings and velcro. Excellent stuff!

      Disadvantages

      Overall its a reliable, popular branded pushchair but at affordable prices

      My sister highly rated her M&P Luna, she used it from birth for her second daughter and it lasted her quite a long time. So i purchased one for my middle child, i couldnt make my mind up over it. I wasnt sure on the style of it and the wheels.

      Wheels: They are little wheels so the ride wasnt all that smooth and i also didnt like the chunky plastic above the front wheels that connects to frame, it lookd odd and out of place.
      Chassis: The long bar from handle to the wheels is thin and the little bar is chunky, it does feel sturdy but to make it look more impressive and sturdier the long bar should be abit thicker.
      Fabric: There is many colours/designs to buy now but i think my faves are the standard orange and lime green. It is good quality fabric and easy to wipe clean. Although the netting on the hood tears easily and i know quite a few thats has and agrees.
      Handle: Its adjust easily and to a good height.
      Folding: There is a nack to folding but it doesnt take long to get the jist of it. It folds half and half, so its not small or compact!
      Basket: Shopping basket does have a good thick durable material to it.
      Bumper bar: Easily removed but in my personal opinion it doesnt look right without it.
      Footmuff: Thick material, will keep your little one warm

      You can buy extras such as:-
      >Carrycot
      >Carseat (compatible with Cybex)
      >Parasol
      >Nappy bag
      >Customized fabrics

      Facts:-
      Brand: Mamas & Papas
      Age: Birth to 15kg
      Weight of pushchair: 10.3kg
      Folded dimensions: 34x91x60
      Handle height: 93cm-111cm
      Leg rest: 2 postion recline
      Back rest: Continous

      I think i paid around £145 but having just checked on mamas & papas site they are now £159. So they are affordable which makes it a whole lot better. Again i would say try before you buy.

      Excellent Pushchair - Well worth the money

      My wife had been looking at these Pushchairs for a long time.

      Previously to this we had one of the cheap ones avaliable at toys R us. which was adequete for the time being.

      My wife saw this Luna on ebay for a very nice price of £60 collected. so off i went to go and collect.
      The colours that are avalaible on this puchchair are very bright and vibrant, This gives a very happy edge to the pushchair while walking around in the day time.

      The covers on the outside are made of very hardwearing material which in itslef is soft and plyable. Not being rought to the skin is a pretty good thing when this material is tough like this, which in itself is a very big plus for this pram.

      The frame work is solid. Sturdy and Looks good. There is a trick to putting the push chair up and down which i failed to master at first but once i got the hang of it it was very easy to do and the pram just folds down onto itself very easily, It also takes up very little space when folded which was a great plus for us - only having a small car boot to put it into.
      Wheeling the pram about is one of the easiest i have used so far. The turning circle of the pram is 0 as the wheels all turn independantly, which is one thing that the other prams we have had before havnt done.
      This helps imensly when navigating tight spaces such as shopping isles.

      The brakes work well and the pram is very light to be lifted in and out of the car.

      The bag That came with the pram is Excellent. Has a silver lined bottle Holder to keep the bottle upright and has plenty of space inside for towel nappies and whatever else you would need to take with you on a day trip.

      The pocket at the front while looking nice is also quite practical as it is quite thick and has a good space for items such as dummies or other small things.

      The basics of the pram itself are also quite reasonable. Whith a drop down back that is easily moved. Placing a sleeping baby from sitting to lying position is easily done with just a pres of the clasp and pull of the strap at the rear. Our baby has not woken once while doing this.

      The removable covers are easily removed for washing as is the internal cushion cover - to which my wife i thinking of even making more.

      The rain cover covers the pram well although does steam up with the babys breath in the cold rainy weather.

      All in all A very good pushchair for the money that we paid for it.

      In the future if it ever does fail i would be more than happy to buy one new from mammas and pappas

      I can reccomend this pram to new mothers - Its very good

      Don't Buy

      We bought this pushchair for our new baby granddaughter in December 2009. It may look good but it is not at all safe. The pushchair tips over when the baby lies down, our baby received a nasty head wound when her pram tipped over. When we contacted Mamas and Papas they took the pushchair away for testing, they not say there is nothing wrong with the pram, but it could be that the baby was not put in the pushchair properly, as a mother of three and grandmother of five, I find their customer care very poor, We are now going to get the pushchair independetly tested, but we are now left with a pushchair which we will not use as we don't consider it safe , we would like to hear from anyone who may have had the same problem. Compared this to Mothercare customer care and the difference is night and day.

      Mamas and papas pushchair

      After using our second hand Quinny Buzz for a couple of weeks, I soon noticed that it was really annoying me. To keep this review a little shorter, I will not go into detail why, but may write my personal Buzz review at a later date! When Logan was about three months I could stand no more and I finally decided it had to go. I knew I could probably sell the Buzz, but couldn't do this until a new pushchair arrived, so budget was an issue!

      Even before we bought the Buzz, my heart lay with the Mamas and Papas Pliko (the Buzz was hubby's choice) but with that now being out of our price range and the main selling point, (the pram conversion) quickly becoming unneccesary, I decided to search for a more lightweight, 'stroller' type buggy, but something a little more substantial, something that would suit Logan, who by now was very interested in what was going on around him, but still sleeping frequently and needing comfort. My eye was soon captured by the Mamas and Papas Luna.

      Our Luna is in the 'truffle' colourway, which is brown with a slight purple tinge. There are a selection of patterned pram liners, cosy toes, strap covers and head huggers to choose from. These do change from season to season, although older colourways (and infact the new ones!) can be purchased from other online sites, such as good old ebay. These really help to jazz up the Luna, although, to be fair, there are only certain patterns which can match the colour of your pushchair.

      My main reasons for purchasing the luna was for the apron and bumper bar. Both offer the comfort and protection for small babies and can also be removed when required when baby grows. Strollers and lightweight umbrella folding buggies do not usually have these, only usually larger pushchairs, such as the three in one travel systems. I also liked the style, it looks like stroller, but a bit chunkier and more substantial, but still a little more compact than a travel system. However, the Luna is capable of becoming a travel system, the Mamas and Papas Viaggio and Axton car seats both fit the Luna but must be purchased seperately, bumping up the cost by well over £100, after buying adaptors to fit the seats. Other accessories include parasols (£25) and changing bags (£40) and even a soft carrycot (£70). We paid £140 for the pushchair new, with the raincover and apron. So as you can see, perfecting and personalising your Luna may be an expensive choice!

      So why the Luna?

      Well, the chunky but light frame gives it a more modern and pleasing look, but keeps it fairly light (9kg).

      It fully reclines, so perfect for very small babies. Although, I have to go against the M&P website who say this is a 'one handed operation' the recline function is easy to use when setting down and can easily be done one handed, but putting back up into a seating position is more tricky. The 'catch' has clips which need to be pushed in either side to relase and then slide down a strap- easy to do with thumb and fore finger, but then as those fingers are being used, tricky to push the whole catch back up the straps. You definitley need the other hand to hold the strap taut, and even then, is easier done without baby in the seat. However there are sewn markers either side to ensure you get the seating postion even.

      Personalisation. Since I bought mine, the 'luna' has now become the 'luna mix' which gives you more choice to customise your pushchair, you can now choose between a three or four wheel base, a different colour hood to the main buggy body and of course there is a choice of liners and headhuggers in various colours and patterns. These liners still fit my version of the luna and as time goes on, more choices will become available as some are discontinued. Yes, you have to pay extra for these, but a liner straight off the M&P website is £18 and a head hugger with strap covers is £12. Not too bad, and if you check the M&P website regluarly, there are always offers to be had and some of the discontinued styles can be picked up cheaply from auction sites.

      My experience

      I find the Luna wonderful to push, fold and put in the boot. (Compared to my old Buzz!) It feels nice and easy to push and very controlled, even with just one hand. To fold, there is a catch either side, the left just needs to be pulled up about half an inch, same for the right side, although this also needs to be turned in towards the buggy at the same time. I've never had any problems with this, although my hubby struggled a little to begin with. Also when collapsed flat it catches on the right side to prevent it opening back up.

      As Logan was nearly four months by the time the buggy arrived, we didn't buy a car seat or carrycot, just a liner for comfort. (The cress pattern, which I must say, goes beautifully with the truffle pushchair!) The five way harness was a little loose for such a small baby so we kept the Buzz a little longer, but by five months he was sitting stronger by himself and the liner pulls the straps higher (as the openings are higher up the back) so we feel more comfortable using it. The difference is, the Buzz seat unit can be placed rear and forward facing, but the luna is only forward. Personally this does not worry me, I think it is nice when babies are noticing things for them to see 'forward' to their surroundings, rather than just looking at Mummy, but this may be a problem for those with newborns. The seat unit is quite spacious, and can be reclined completely flat and gently lifted up at whatever angle you choose until seated, unlike the Buzz, which stays in an angled position even when reclined, not so good for babys posture. The luna also has an adujstable foot rest which can be angled down for older children.

      I love it. It pushes easier than the Buzz, so much lighter and narrower. Okay, no where near as narrow as a proper stroller, but then it is much more substantial than one. It's still got that 'chunky' feeling, which makes you feel that baby is safe. I find it so easy to manouver, even one handed which makes shopping a doddle when carrying a wire basket on one arm.

      Putting it in the boot is also fairly easy, we have an Astra and it fits no problem and it also fits into the boot of my mates Clio. It's not that heavy to lift either.

      It wipes clean very easily, also the apron seat and bumper all come apart easily so washing in the machine is a doddle.

      Handle bar has two buttons on the inside which can be depressed to lower the angle of the bar, making it more comfortable to push. It's easy to change (for me and hubby) but not so easy it can be done accidentally.

      The bumper bar can be opened (gate style) or taken off completely just by pressing a small button either side.

      Has a parent 'window' in the hood so you can keep a look on baby.

      It has a basket and an apron included.


      The Bad

      The raincover is a funny shape, I suppose the extra space is to fit around the car seat, but as we don't have one, it looks a little bulky at the front. It is quite easy to fit though and secures snuggly with velcro at the back and poppers at the front. Although, where the poppers are, it has started to rip, not great as I haven't had to use it that much.

      Can only be forward facing unless you buy the car seat or soft carry cot seperately.

      The apron is secured by a zip on the lower half, but by poppers either side at the top. The poppers are quite fiddly to do up, not good if you're outside in the rain!

      Buying all these seperate accessories can be expensive.

      Colourways may change at any time and you may not get accessories to match.

      Basket underneath is a little shallow and can't hold much.

        What's not to like?

        I bought the Luna pushchair when my daughter was about 9 months old, I am a self confessed pushchair addict (I've had more than 10 pushchairs since my Daughter was born!) & when I saw one of the Mum's at the school with one I had to try it.

        I manage to purchase one on Ebay that was like new for the fab price of £65 in the truffle colour which is almost like a deep mauve which I thought was lovely. The Luna has a lovely padded seat & straight away my Daughter looked very comfy & snug in it. It came with a padded apron which zips to the main seat unit which is handy although it's not very big & I wouldn't expect it to last an average size child past 12 months old.

        I bought the updated version which included a padded bumper bar & adjustable foot rest. The earlier models didn't have these extras & I would say it's definately worth paying a bit extra.
        & although the basket is quite shallow you can get loads in it.

        The handle is adjustable which is great as myself & Hubby vary in height so with the click of a very easy button we can change it.

        Pushing this pushchair is a dream, you could do it with one finger it's that easy. I have owned lots of pushchairs & this is by far the easiest.

        Folding the pushchair down is also so easy, you just pull & twist 2 levers on the handles & drop the frame down, it folds flat not umbrella style but it's not that big. To open you just pull the levers again & snap it open.

        I really don't have a bad word to say about it, I did sell mine ( as I said I have a pushchair obsession) as I got bored & wanted to try something new but I regret it & am actually thinking of buying another one.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        excellent buggy, easy, stylish, comfortable and fully adjustable

        I purchased this buggy the 1st week that the mandarin (orange) one was released in 2008. My daughter was 6 months old at the time.

        I found that it was very easy to assemble - which is always a bonus for people like me who never read the instructions.

        The first time I took the buggy out I got so many people looking at it and asking me what model it was - Lunas were relatively unknown in my town when we 1st got ours - the orange one is a striking color as well.

        It was a complete dream to push, the shopping basket isnt huge and i would recommend some that you buy some shopping bag clips for the handle bars if you are going into town shopping. These can be brought from ebay for about £2 but will be a wise investment.

        I love how it fully reclines and has an adjustable footrest so that you can adjust it however you wish to make your child comfy.

        I used this for 15 months until my 2nd baby was born and I decided to buy a double pushchair.

        I sold this on which is something I now regret as Im in need of a single buggy again and this is the only one I have ever tried which I have really loved.

        The only fault I had with the buggy is that the raincover ripped very easily and I ended up buying a stronger replacement after about 2 months (baring in mind this was in summer so hadnt been used very much at all at this point)

        Summary

        All in all I would say this is an excellent buggy, very easy to push with a free moving harness to child can move around more comfortably.
        It is very stylish with an adjustable handle bar so that people of all heights can find a level that suits them.

        *I wanted to update this review just to let you know I have now infact purchased a new luna as I loved it so much the 1st time around.*

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Great pushchair, good price, sturdy and comfortable!

          The Luna is a funky looking pushchair, which I have had no problems with at all in the 6 months I have used it. We bought it as a second pushchair as our Silvercross pram is too big for the car. It folds up small, very quickly and easily, is really comfortable with a great floating harness which allows your baby to move around freely, lean foward, peep round the side of the pushchair, whilst being totally secure. The basket is another plus, it is easily accessed and quite a good size, holding a number of bags of shopping as well as the raincover. The raincover is easy to fit and the handle allows one handed manoevering! As it is suitable for babies from birth it lies flat, great for naps.

          The only real downsides are that if you put something too heavy over the handle it can tip, but this can happen with most pushchairs and it has never happened for us, and also the way it folds up can mean that the apron will touch the ground which will make it a little grubby, but you can fold it a little more awkwardly which stops it from touching the ground.

          I would buy the Luna again without hesitation!

          Disadvantages

          not recommended at all!

          As a pram addict i saw this funky pram and just had to buy it, the first thing that caught my eye was the colours and the matching accessories as i love them all to match lets just say i wish i never bothered!!

          The First View ----

          I saw this pram in one of my favourite stores mamas and papas it was priced at 150.00 which i thought was pretty reasonable compared to what i have paid for some prams, for the price you also got the raincover and a covering on the front like a footmuff but not as good, but if your anything like me you would also be buying the matching accessories things like the changing bag, the pram liner and foot muff.
          The best thing about the pram was the colours you can get it in loads of various colours most very bright and eye catching, the pram looks amazing, it looks easy to push and it looked comfortable.

          First Ride Out ----

          I got this pram home and put it up very easy, it is easy to fold and unfold and isnt too big and clumsy when folded, I took it out just to the shops and hated it, to me it just didnt feel safe when i was pushing it, it felt unstable and after speaking to a few people apparantly they all feel the same!
          The shopping basket was way too small and with barely any back to it everything just fell out when you went up a kerb or anything so that was no good, you couldnt tie shopping on the handle as it just made it feel like it would tip up!

          One of the other things i realy didnt like about it was my son was only 6 months old when i bought this which is fine as it says its from birth which fair enough the seat does recline fully and it goes flat the only problem then was my sons legs hung off the bottom of the pram, as the footrest does not recline, usually i wouldnt have bothered but to be honest it looked very strange when laid down he didnt look comfortable at all and even when the seat was sat up my sons back looked arched in it.
          The only few good things about this pram is its pretty compact when folded so can go in a carboot!

          Verdict ----

          I would only recomened this to someone who has an older child maybe a toddler that is only nipping out and about and doesnt need to use it to sleep in when out etc, you cant use it to shop with theres no room at all and its a waste of money you can get a lot better pram / pushchair for half this price!!

          ?

          i brought this pushchair in truffle summer last year the newest version with the bumper bar an adjustable leg rest ,
          i think this pram overall is quiet good there are a few downfalls.
          The shopping basket being small, an when the rain cover is on it is quiet big at the front section but that is to accommodate for when either a car seat or carry coat is attached to the push chair, on the seat unit the shoulder straps are not fitted at the back which is called a Free Movement safety harness, it allows the child to move more independently away from the back rest which i thought was very unsafe an would be more so if the bumper bar wasn't there.
          I decided to buy a seat liner from mamas an papas which fits on the seat, which made it abit more better as my son couldn't move forward as much, there is also two extra holes at the top of the seat unit which is for yourself to attach a safety rein to if you dint feel your child is safe, when this pram is folded down the seat unit touches the floor which is not ideal on a rainy day, when the seat unit is layed back i have found that the pram with nothing on its handles has tryed to tip back mainly on the bus it has done this, which is why i do not recline it fully at all now , but apart from the few drawbacks it is a really nice pram there seems to be a bit more room then a standard pram, width ways when my son is sitting in the seat he has a bit more room to move also the bumper bar is great for attaching toys to and the height adjustable handle is good so overall i would recommend it.
