      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Highly recommended as a newborn pram, but not always a long term solution

      We bought the Mamas and Papas Ultima, in the spotty 'polka' print when expecting our first child. It came with the base, the carrycot, the seat unit (for converting to a buggy once the baby was old enough to not lie flat), the Primo Viaggio car seat and a seperate stand for putting the carrycot on in the house. We purchased the matching footmuff and sun parasol as optional extras, plus a more expensive mattress for the carrycot to enable us to use it in the house instead of buying a moses basket.

      Advantages
      This is a fantastic pram for a newborn. The carrycot is really comfortable, and you can raise the mattress slightly if they have a cold and need to be elevated. Having the carrycot on the stand in the house was a real advantage for us - if the baby fell asleep while we were out we could just remove the carrycot from the wheels and place it on the stand. It is also an advantage that the car-seat fits on to the base unit, which meant I didn't have to take the carrycot if just popping to the shops. I also loved the fact that you could have the seat unit facing you, or facing away - we mostly used it facing to promote speech development, but if we were somewhere that there was a lot to see, we'd turn it round so that our son could look out. It was comfortable to push and there was sufficient space underneath to store the shopping. My son always looked really comfortable in the pram, and the seat unit reclines to almost flat which was great when he fell asleep in it. You can also adjust the handle height to suit.

      Disadvantages
      The pram is very heavy and bulky. If you have a car with a small boot you would definitely struggle to fit it in. It also does not fold as one unit, you need to take it all apart. It takes up a lot of space when not being used. Although I love the pram, I've hardly used it since my baby turned 1 as I find an umbrella fold stroller much more convenient when out and about.

      Price
      The Ultima 3 in 1 is expensive (we paid over £500 for everything, including car seat) and it isn't necessarily a long term solution. Everyone I know who has one has ended up buying a second stroller. However, the quality is great and ours will hopefully be used again if we have another child.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I would recommend this pram to anyone

      This was the first ever pram I bought for my first child!
      It was pretty expensive just over £500 when i bought it but that was for the travel system which included the chassis, the carrycot, raincovers and the pram seat which is a good deal when you think of it that way.


      They do some realy nice colours in this pram aswell personally for girls of course i LOVE the KiKi colour which is pink and black its gorgeous and a realy nice wool type material.


      Ill start with the carrycot, its big and spacious, it has a realy cost mattress in the bottom and also on the cover there is a little wind guard you can pull up for the realy windy days my daughter looked so comfortable and peaceful in there also you can use this is a little rocker at home or on a moses basket stand so you dont have to buy extras for them to sleep in.
      But you do have to remove it from the chasis before you put down the pram which can be difficult as its pretty heavy.


      The pram seat is also very comfy and you can have it forward facing or rear facing i always love to have that option on my prams as i hate my little ones facing away from me.
      The footmuffs are realy good quality aswell and ride pretty high up so all your baby is covered.


      The frams itself is pretty heavy but it has to be to support the carrycot and things, the shopping basket is a very strong sturdy one as its like a plastic tray so you can stack a lot of shopping up on there, there is also a parent tray on the handle of the pram to put juice bottles and snacks in which is always handy.


      Its a very good pram to push aswell and fits easily into stores and things its a great pram if you walk a lot, and its very hard wearing i would recommend this one to anyone!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      a great pram but not the best if you use a car a lot with a small boot. better for an active mum/dad

      Mamas and papas are by far one of my favourite manufacturers of baby items. you can always rely on great stlye and pram that will last form newborn to toddler. the ultima is no exception. one of the more expensive prams made by mamas and papas, this pram is worht every penny for the mum/dad about town. it is very stylish and the chassis is compatable with the carrycot, seat unit and car seats available from mamas and papas. this is deffinetly a luxury pram and a pram to be proud to push. the chassis is very easy to fols and the carrycot.carseat and seat unit are all very easy to remove and click onto the base. the wheels are removable so great if you have a smaller boot. the carrycot has vents for warmer days, to keep baby cool and comes with a lovely matteress for baby's comfort. the seat unit is suitable from birth as fully reclineable so the carrycot is not essential. the pram is not always suitable for public transport as is a larger pram. the larger chassis means the added bonus of a large shopping tray and this is an all round lovely pram.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Gives baby the best comfort from an early age!

      Mamas and Papas aka Peg Perego worldwide are reknown for their style and class, the Ultima 3 in 1 doesn't let the team down.

      A traditional pram with a modern look, the Ultima 3 in 1 has four all terrain pneumatic tyres which adds to the comfort of pushing this pram. The pram also has an adjustible handle which is great if mummy and daddy are different heights.

      What I liked the most about this pram was the traditional pram body for when my baby was a newborn, it could also be used instead of a moses basket which saved money, it's spacious inside, cosy and warm, then when baby is a little older and more nosey to what is going on around him you can clip the pushchair seat onto the pushchair facing you and talk to baby, as your child hits toddler age they'll want to see the world so you can put the pushchair seat on forward facing.

      The Ultima 3 in 1 is a fully versatile pram, its traditional with the pram body and then modern with the forward or rearfacing pushchair seat. With the addition of the Mamas and Papas Primo Viaggio car seat (sold seperately priced at around £120) you can make it a full travel system. Also if you want traditional bouncy pram wheels when your child is tiny but more modern swivel wheels when your child is older, you can buy the MPX chassis on its own for around £215, place your pushchair seat, pram unit on or car seat and you have the same pram with swivel wheels!

      The Ultima 3 in 1 is false advertisment really as the '3 in 1' part is basically the seat and pram body without the chassis, you have to buy this seperately so for arguements sake I'll give you the price for the 3 in 1 and also the full system with or without car seat. Mamas and Papas only do the 8 in 1 variety priced at £575 including car seat and base and also the stand to attach the pram body as a moses basket or a little chair for feeding baby adding the seat unit, you also get an apron and insect net.

      The 3 in 1 on its own is available online and prices are around the £215 mark, so add a chassis of your choice for £215 and its around £430 for the system without the car seat, insect net or stand.

      I had this pram from when my son was a newborn and out of all the prams I have had this one stayed with us the longest, I had mine on bouncy chassis until my son was 6 months old and then I bought the MPX swivel chassis and used it until my son was around 18 months old, it's a fantastic pram but it does have some downsides:-

      *It's heavy
      *Very bulky when folded
      *You have to remove the pram body/seat unit to fold
      *Won't fit in a car with a small boot.

      As a pram it is very much a walking pram, perfect for taking on buses that allow pushchairs and going for walks around town or sight seeing.

      lovely pram shame about the size

      i had a bt of a pram obsession when i had my little boy and i had one of these they are absolutely gorgeous look also they are a dream to push they glide due to having pneumatic tyres and to look at they are really stunning i could go on and on about these prams!!!the accessories are gorgeous too and the pram looks very very comfy thecarry cot can be used as a moses basket type bed and if your new arrival gets colic etc the bottom of the carry cot can be raised to slightly raise baby the only issue i had with this gorgeous piece of equipment is the size of it when its collapsed it is very big no good at all if you dont have a big car and you have to take the carrycot off really if you dont have an estate its very fiddly rather than just folding and putting in the car its very bulky and awkward but apart from that an absolute dream
