MICRALITE FAST FOLD ----
I have had two of these the first one my partner managed to easily brake, he clipped a kerb with the front wheel and it snapped clean off we never got around to replacing it but i have been told by several people the wheels are very flimsy.
So we got our second one and i have sold that one on aswell, as i just do not get on very well with it!
I suppose the micralite is brilliant if you are just nipping out and about around town where ther is smooth terrain or just on the buses as its very small and compact, it is easy to push and very easy to steer as you can use one hand which is great if you have shopping bags or other children to keep hold of, it has a shopping basket which has enough space for one or two shopping bags but not much more, the seat doesnt recline enough it barely lays down and my son just never seems comfortable , it does have a very nice cosy footmuff which makes the pram look a lot better and keeps your babys very snug.
The other downsides to this pram is there is nowhere to hang your shopping bags as you cant have barely any weight on the back as the pram will just tip especially if your child is light.
The main thing i have to say i like about this is the way it folds, its very quick and simple to fold and it folds up very small so if your tight for storage this is brill.
easy to fold, lightweight, easy to push, great for going around town
flimsy front wheels, easily tips, not enough space in shopping basket, doesnt lay down enough.
Overall, i would say if you dont have a lot of space in your home or your car for a nice sized pram then maybe this would be good for you, but i wouldnt recommend it for young children or as there only pram maybe as a spare yes but not for going on long trips as it just looks way too uncomfortable.
Price- £165 (mothercare)
Summary: a nice pram for people with a small car boot!
