Advantages: All in one pushchair designed to last from birth until no longer needed
Disadvantages: Cheaply made and not as good quality as the name suggests
I wanted to find a perfect pushchair that would last my son throughout his "pushchair-hood". My husband also liked the idea of an all in one system and we needed a pushchair that was compact and fitted into the back of a Vauxhall Corsa!
I wanted to have the option of popping the car seat on the pushchair for quick errands but also a flat laying option for day trips etc. I love the 5 point safety harness in the pushchair and allows my son the freedom to move in his pushchair without feeling restricted and thus getting irrate.
The pram option is fantastic and meant I could see him easily. I would in the future consider a pushchair that can be both forward and rear facing as I sometimes feel my son is "ignored" whilst I am out shopping.
Being that it is a fixed unit is beneficial for someone who has little space at home. When we tested this pushchair it felt quite solid and a bit less "plasticky" than the silver cross in the similar style which I was surprised about. However after only one year the pushchair squeeks and no longer goes in a straight line despite never been overloaded as Mama's and Papa's suggested. They only offered to WD-40 the wheel when it started squeeking after only 6 months something we declined in disgust!
I must say it is not overly easy to put up and put down. I remember feeling devestated when it was delivered and I tried putting it up feeling that I would fail as a mother after not being able to put the pushchair up. It starts off stiff but soon loosens, a little too much and will now not stay closed. I am also quite sad to discover the laminate on the front step has started to peel.
After thinking this option would be great for us I am left feeling disappointed and with a bitter taste in my mouth. We hoped this pushchair would serve at least our son and his next sibling but it is looking like we will actually need to buy another one. Not great when this was priced at around £300 before the sale started.
Summary: Sadly not the product you think you are being sold
