Nifty Little Pram!
Member Name: cheekycherry
Advantages: small, easy to push and fold!
Disadvantages: very flimsy wheels, no storage space
I saw the micralite fastfold online and didnt find it in any shop so had to take a risk in buying it! Online it sounded like the perfect pram for us so we went ahead and paid at the time £160 although i think the prices have changed now this was a while ago!
The First Trip Out -
We found that it was very easy to get around the shops, and we did have a lot of looks and comments people saying they had never seen it before and how unique it was, which was nice i must say! my son appeared to be comfortable and nice and warm in his cosey toes but we had a few problems! The pram was no good for shopping at all the basket can only get the raincover and one bag in and you cannot hang bags onto the handles as it tips the pram over so if you are a shop a holic no good for you!
The other problems i faced is the fact it doent recline very much at all so my son was not very comfortable, for short trips it would be fine but not for long journeys!
And of course the final thing was my husband decided to push it up the kerb and he tapped the edge of the kerb and the wheel snapped clean off i wouldnt have been so bothered if he had hit it with some force but no it wasnt hard at all according to a few reviews i have read people have also had to same problems! its not a very hardy pram at all!
Obviously the main pro is the size when folded and unfolded of this pram, its very compact and makes life so much easier if you have a small boot on a car or no storage space in the house! Its also very easy and quick to fold up hence the name, and its a one handed push so you can keep hold of youre other children when need be!
The fact there is only one recline position has put me off although i would have used it as a spare buggy for short journeys but then there is the problem with the wheel so that has put me off completly, its not a very sturdy buggy and wouldnt go over rubble and things like that if you are sticking to smooth paths then you would be just fine!
I would recommend maybe for a spare, to nip to the local shops or to go on holiday, if you wanted to use it as a more permanant pram then i would suggest you buy the off terrain wheels which i found on ebay as they are larger and a lot sturdier than the ones it comes with!
Summary: depends on what you are wanting to use it for!
