Advantages: lies flat, easy to use, folds small
Disadvantages: none really!
I bought this pushchair for my son as part of a travel system, at the bargain price of £135 in their january sale! It included this pushchair, a car seat, car seat base, foot muff and a rain cover. Mine is black with a red trim, and I have found it very easy to buy generic matching accessories for, as many companies make red pushchair and pram accessories.
The main points for me when looking for a travel system were that it had to fold small, be easy to collapse and be cheap, as we were on a strict budget. And I am pleased to say this met all the criteria!
My car is a Vauxhall Corsa with quite a small boot, and the pushchair fits perfectly. We did have to remove the parcel shelf to get it in, though.
The buggy is fantastically easy to collapse, whenever I have collapsed it in front of other mums at baby group they have always commented on how easy it is, usually while attempting to do so with a big and cumbersome Mama's and Papa's type pram - much more expensive!
There are 3 settings for baby to lay in, a lay flat, middle and upright. The buggy is advertised from birth because it lays flat but I wouldnt really advise you put baby in it until he/she is a few months old, as the straps were loose around my son even on the tightest setting until he got to 6 months old.
The shopping basket underneath has plenty of room in it even when baby is laying flat, and when baby is upright I have even managed to fit in a giant bag of cat litter and a folded/bagged up travel cot!
There is only one gripe I have with this buggy, and that is that sometimes the wheel locks get knocked on while getting it in and out of the car, but that really is the only gripe, and is easily sorted by knocking them off again.
A really fantastic buy which will last my son until he doesn't need a buggy any more. I couldnt have asked for anything else!
Summary: Fantastic value travel system, will last til baby doesnt need one any more
