Good for the price.

Advantages: Price, looks.
Disadvantages: Doesn't sit up enough.
I bought this as my second pushchair for quick trips out as my other one was a big clumsy travel system that was wide and heavy and I wanted something smaller and lighter.
I paid £25 for this from Argos, it was the cheapest pushchair I could find with a hood, just a step up from very basic ones I had seen.
It is light, it has an umbrella fold so it is very easy to put up and put down again.
The hood pops on and can be placed at any height so it was handy to be able to move it down when the sun was in my sons eyes.
It came with a raincover which was a bonus for the price.
It is very sturdy, it has been many places and it shows no signs of wear and the wheels have put up with alot.
The handles are comfortable, it is quite tall so you don't need to bend yourself at all.
It has lockable front wheels.
It doesn't really sit up enough, the highest position is still too reclined when children want to sit upright and look around.
The back doesn't really have any support, it just cradles the child and needs to be firmer.
The basket is quite small, a changing bag won't fit in it.
The harness is far to big, it says its suitable from birth as it reclines almost flat but the straps don't go anywhere near tight enough. At 20 months my son still can easily escape.
A negative for it being so tall is that it makes it harder to push uphill.
I have had this for 18 months and it's still going strong, it does its job well and if the negatives really bothered me that much I would have bought a different pushchair. It has worn well for the price I paid and I will keep it for my daughter. But I would have replaced it if this was going to be my only everyday pushchair as I don't think it is comfortable enough for that. It looks smart and I have it in black with a blue harness.
Summary: Good budget pushchair.
