      Thanks for Reading :)

      Introduction
      = = = = = = =


      I never new searching for a pushchair for my nephew would have been so mind boggling! I was surprised as to how much choice and varieties of pushchairs there were in the market, and I had to frequently ask myself if I was actually going for the right one or not. I basically wanted a simple enough pushchair that could be easily folded and lightweight to push, and of course something comfortable for my nephew at the time was around 12 months old, and after some researching decided the Petite Star Zia push chair seemed to tick all the boxes and off we went to purchase it.




      The Price
      = = = = =

      I purchased this Petite Star Zia pushchair from Mothercare for around £100, it was also available from Toys R Us but as the price was slightly higher we decided to just get it from Mothercare. It is also available to buy from Amazon and other online stores, as well as online auction sites. The prices do vary depending on condition and what accessories you get but generally retails £60-120.




      Specifications
      = = = = = = = =


      * Suitable from birth

      * Lightweight aluminium chassis with unique compact fold--folded size 75cm x 36cm x 34cm

      * Adjustable multi-position seat unit

      * Quick-release wheels and adjustable handles

      * Shopping basket and raincover included





      Experience
      = = = = = =


      I chose to purchase the blue coloured version, but it is also available in red, purple and black colours. The blue colour is nice deep blue colour and the design of the pushchair is different to the usual four cornered wheels, instead it has three wheels positioned in a triangular shape which gives the pushchair a nice trendy and modern look but also brings major down falls which I will discuss later.


      One of the key reasons for purchasing this pushchair was how compact it was and how easy it is to fold. The folding mechanism is very clever and simple to initiate and folds into itself so it becomes compact and lightweight. I could even fold it one handed it is that easy to do! Its approx size when folded is 75 x 36 x 34 which as you can imagine made it so much easier to fit into our already small car boot, and still left plenty of room to store other things. The great thing about this is that it small enough to even fit in between the front and back seats as it can just slide across. It weighs approx 5kg so it is very lightweight, and I couldmore than easily lift it out and into the car without a problem.


      It comes with a rain cover that fits well when used, however I hardly use the rain cover to be honest. It also comes with a shopping basket, if you can call it that! First thing is it is too small to be able to even fit most things into it, and secondly it is hard to access it when the pushchair seat is set to recline. The push chair seat is easy to recline and is done so by pulling a strap cord next to the seat. The reclining seat is great as it enabled my nephew to be positioned more comfortably when he fell a sleep and prevents him from falling out, and it also safe to recline while the child is in the seat.


      The pushchair is easy to push and transport around thanks to the well constructed swivel wheels, which I have never experienced getting stuck or jammed. The handle bars are positioned a good distance apart and have good cushioned handles to enable a comfortable grip. It is easy to push along even ground but more effort is needed on grassy or stony floors. I remember taking this on a few trips to Lake District and Tatton Park and found it very easy to lift up over steps, but slightly harder to move over small grassy hills and etc, of course it required more effort on steeper hills, although the lightweight aspect definitely helped lift and push it over small bumps etc.




      Major Disadvantages
      = = = = = = = = = = =


      The push chair is suitable to use from birth, however it is worth noting that the side padding where the bars are aren't very thick which I can imagine being quite uncomfortable for newborns. My nephew would sit comfortably majority of the time, however again the padding is a little thin so sometimes I would catch him leaning his head on the side bar when he is trying to sleep which doesn't look very comfortable. Therefore we would put a little blanket under his head just to provide a little more support and cushioning.


      The major disadvantage with this push chair is that it can be dangerous to leave your child unattended even more a minute. This is mainly due to the three wheels that are positioned in a triangular shape and therefore makes the pushchair wobbly, especially when your child tries to climb out, which my nephew tried doing and the pushchair just toppled over, although it only happened once it still plays on our minds till this day. Thankfully he was okay, a slight bruise but nothing serious, however it could have been a lot worse if was a concrete floor he fell onto, or if the pushchair fell onto him. Like I said it only happened once, but this is still a major disadvantage and is one the reasons why we never leave my nephew unattended in this pushchair, and is definitely something to bear in mind before purchasing this pushchair. As the pushchair is a bit unstable at times, I wouldn't recommend hanging any bags on the handle bars, or try to push it with one hand as it could topple over. As a peace of mind we purchased a replacement pushchair which we are a lot more happier with, and can leave my nephew in without having to worry about it toppling over.




      Conclusion
      = = = = = =

      Overall I would not recommend this pushchair as I find it just isn't worth the risk of it toppling over if your child decides to lean over the side or climb out, and for the price you can get better more stable prams. Although it is very lightweight and easy to fold the positives do not outweigh the negatives on this one I'm afraid.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        I wouldn't buy this pushchair again as I would go for a pushchair with 4 wheels

        I brought this pushchair as a spare for my little boy when he was about 12 months old. I loved it as it was lightweight, had a large seat so he wasn't all cramped and the main thing I loved was the fact the recline lay flat so he was able to sleep comfortably while out and about. Because of all these pros I started to use it more often than my main pushchair (Quinny buzz)

        Slowly as my little boy got bigger and heavier I started to dislike and have some problems with the pushchair, because of the weight of him the pushchair became quiet hard to push and very squeaky, it doesn't seem to be able to hold his weight well, I think mainly because its a 3 wheeler and also because it has no support around the back of the seat!

        I have a little girl who I got a 4 wheeled stroller for and when I put my little boy in it it's so much for sturdy and can hold his weight so much better!

        Saying all this I still have this pushchair for my little boy and the pros are still great, especially the seat size as a lot of strollers are very narrow! All in all I wouldn't buy this pushchair again as I would go for something with 4 wheels are more sturdier!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        it wasn't my favourite out of a long list.

        I bought this when my daughter was 3 so not a young baby. She felt very comfy in it and it was a great size for the larger child who still needs a pushchair. It was also very light and the folding mechanism is excellant. Very easy to do even one handed so perfect for the runaway toddler! But, and yes there is a but; it felt abit like it had a mind of its own. I think the 3 wheels made it feel unsecure which put me off it abit. So much so I didn't use it for my next child. I felt paranoid that she was going to tip over in it all the time. Plus it was hard to get up on kerbs without veering off to the side. All in all a good large buggy but the stability of it and its lack of shopping space has let it down.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Fairly good pram for the price we paid.

        We bought the petite star zia back in 2010 when my first son was about 16 months old after our bruin swift buggy fell apart after just a few months.

        At first looks I wasn't so keen as I didn't really want a 3 wheeler as I'd heard bad things about them. We bought it from toys r us and paid about £150 which isn't too bad for a pram (we paid £60 for the swift and learnt from our mistake). There was a choice of 3 colours on sale, pink, red and black. We went to the black with it being unisex and personally the better colour. A footmuff and rain cover came with it also.

        It's a nice looking pram and isn't to heavy at 6.3kg. It folds down to a nice size and we have never had any trouble getting it into the back of smaller cars. Its also pretty easy to fold down and only takes a few seconds but does need 2 hands so cant be folded down if your holding on to a toddler.

        The pram is very easy to push but if you're a heavy user (like me, I don't drive so a pram is my lifeline) then I would not really recommend this pram. It is very difficult to push up and down curbs and it also pushes to the left or right if there is a slight lean on the pavement, which makes for bad wrists. It also tipped up on me several times in strong winds (much to my sons horror) but thankfully I've managed to catch it every time so has never "fully" tipped up but this isn't good. Its fine for pushing round shoppping centres though with flat, even floors.

        The footmuff is very cosy and warm but we never really got much use from is as both of my boys didn't like the restriction on their legs. It was only ever used on VERY cold days but I didn't find any flaws with it. The basket under the pram is a good size but when the pram is fully reclined its almost impossible to get to. When the seat is sat up it has fairly easy access. Also the rain cover isn't so great, after about 6 months it started to rip around the handles but did keep my little ones dry and cosy on the inside. Now, my little boy is a big 2 year old his feet do stick out of the bottom of the rain cover but I just put that down to him being tall but this again is quite a slight problem.

        The handles are adjustable but not really that much. With me at 5'0ft and my husband at 6'2ft we really needed a pram the suited both our heights but we both had to compromise a little as the handles don't really go low enough for me or high enough for my husband but we are both able to push it comfortably.

        1 big problem I found with the petite star zia was the recline function. It does recline a lot but it has a draw sting type system and unless the child in the pram isn't leaning on the back it will not go down. So when your little one has nodded off sat up it takes 2 people to recline the pram, 1 the lift the child forward and 1 to recline the pram which is not ideal when your out on your own.

        The 5 point harness is good and the shoulders pads are handy to have too but ours quickly became lost and they come off very easily. My son is now 2 and a half and has only just figured out how to get himself out of the pram.

        I'm very happy that this pram has lasted us through 2 children and almost 3 years worth of use but you can really tell and I would now deem it to be only good for the bin. I am starting to use it less and less so I would give it a few more months then it will be finding a new home at the tip but its served us well.

        Over all for the price we paid and the amount of time it has lasted us, especially with the heavy use its had I would say it was a good investment. There is some slight problems with this pram but nothing too major.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A very well rounded buggy, you'll get some use out of this one

          I'll admit that my son is not small for his age. At 21 months he weighs in a around 3 stone, thus the need for a decent sized buggy to fit my little giant! After browsing round Mothercare with my son and wife, we realized that most of the buggies you can buy (cheap and expensive) seemed to focus heavily on compactness, and were fairly narrow as a result. Step forward the Petite Star Zia! This buggy straight away looked and felt different, being that it was nice, wide and light, and easy to steer with its three wheels. We plonked our son in it and promptly took it for a test drive round the shop. He seemed to love it, and, bear in mind this was purchased when he was around six months old, seemed to have loads of space for him to sit comfortably (and maybe even get the odd nap in!).

          Great, we thought. It came with a comfortable foot cosy (which by about a year old was understandably redundant), and a decent raincover that fit over the buggy without too much trouble (and could be easily slung over the back of it without the need to remove on the rare occasions it didn't rain!). The sun cover over the top of the buggy that could be extended out looked to be a bit of an afterthought by the manufacturers as unless the sun was slap bang above the buggy there was no way this was going to offer an useful sun protection. The other thing worth mentioning is the shopping compartment at the bottom of the buggy is rather small and once your baby is sitting in the buggy there is no space to take in or out any large items if this is important to you.

          The Petite Star passed its first test when we took it on holiday to Tenerife shortly after purchasing it and I've got to say it was an absolute breeze slinging it into the back of taxis and generally wheeling the little one round in the blistering heat without breaking too much of a sweat. It came back in one piece and you can obviously tell that its solidly built and going to last a while. It also conveniently doubled up as a makeshift travel cot when the little fellow wanted to take forty winks, as the back of the buggy can be lowered to give him a nice, comfy temporary bed.

          So here we are still wheeling him around in the Petite Star 15 months later, and this buggy has seen a lot of use. The thing is still going strong (we briefly flirted with a Sliver Cross buggy but it was too heavy and unwieldy with our son in and had to be dropped) however the rain cover is fairly battered now (I'm getting round to replacing this) though the buggy is largely in one piece. The only trouble with it now is that the mechanism to lower the baby when he falls asleep in it frequently gets jammed (this may be in some part to his weight) meaning sometime he has to sleep upright which is a bit of a shame. Also for quite a while our son looked a bit slouched sitting in it as the backrest is not re-enforced by anything and therefore didn't look great for posture, but strangely as he's grown this has been less of a problem (probably due to weight distribution!).

          So I'd wholeheartedly recommend this buggy to anyone, we've tried others and have ultimately come back to this one. It's not perfect, but if your baby is a bit on the 'big' side and you want them comfortable this one is a winner. It won't go off-road, there are other (more expensive) models that can cater for this but it is definitely durable (it has had a few tests from ourselves!). Another thing to note is the wheels are all replaceable as they are plastic and do get worn by repeat use. Just remember to purchase a sun umbrella when buying and you'll be set with everything.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Ideal for trips, shopping, holidays

          My name is Fidget69 and I am a Pramaholic!
          The petite star is exactly that. a small star :) Before I drove the dreaded public transport was my only way of venturing further than my feet would travel. I own two other prams/buggys one for everyday as you do and one for off road. However there comes a time in every girls life where shopping and a spot of lunch is needed. This is where the petite comes in!

          I Bought it when my daughter was 6 months after many a push of others and opening and collapsing in shops I always came back to this one. Not only is it small when folded but the seat unit is large and fully reclines, something i found many similar products unable of. The chest pads make the 5 point harness comfortable and they still fit my near three year old as does the seat unit without any cramping. The quick folding mechanism (which can be done one handed) is ideal for hopping on and off transport or chucking in the back of your car. ( you can chuck it it is exceptionally lightweight ). The smallness of the star makes it ideal for coffee houses and restaurants too, folding out of sight or the lowness making it able to be pushed up to the table while your child sleeps and you eat in peace, ( it can happen, I have seen it )

          There is a wide range of colors and accessories available also.

          Although I recommend this pushchair the cons are there but I am yet to find one without. The Shopping basket although not small is full with the rain cover, the rain cover fits lovely but the Velcro window is a flaw and could easily have been left off! the petite is also a struggle to be pushed one handed, which is not at all of use if you have a toddler to hold hands with. Having said all that the petite star is a sturdy buggy that has never tipped and has held my child safely and comfortably for many town and city trips and is available at a much lower cost and does the same job as many other higher priced similar products on the market!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Lovely Pushchair But Flawed!

            The Petite Star Zia was our first pushchair and we purchased it with the cocoon. When our little one was born she was perfect size for the cocoon and I did love the pushchair.

            The one problem we had is having a Ford KA as a car - the boot is small however the Zia fit perfectly into the boot with a small space for shopping! PERFECT! Although there wasn't room for the cocoon but we could cope with this by putting it on the back seat.

            First flaw - the raincover does not fit when the cocoon is on! I gave birth in January 2011 - the snow had gone but it was pretty miserable and when it rained we had to put our tiny 5lbs 5 newborn into the stroller to keep her dry! Not very practical as we ended up having to pad it out for her to fit! Only did this twice & then had to stay in when it rained!

            Second flaw - the shopping basket is tiny however I wouldn't say it bothered us too much! We coped with it and in the end I was managing to fit raincover, footmuff & a tub of formula in so you can do it!

            Third flaw - you can't put any shopping on the handles! This would be ok if you had a large shopping basket but you don't so you are stuck with not having anywhere to put any shopping! Twice it tipped up with my daughter in! Scary and not nice!

            Fourth flaw - the handles are low! This comes with having such a compact stroller but I'm only 5ft 5 (ok I do have long arms too) and pushing this all day left me hunching over and left me with terrible back ache!

            Other flaws - you can't fit a universal parasol!

            Overall it is a lovely pushchair - I liked the design and it was easy to put up and down. It was fairly easy to fit the cocoon, very easy to push but I had to sell on in the end because my back could take no more & it's the little things that matter!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            The best smallest pushchair on the market

            I purchased this for my first child when she was about 9months old. This was now my 3rd pushchair and my other half was starting to think I had a problem!

            I will start at the beginning, originally I had a Graco, but when Lauren was two weeks old and the other half went back to work, I realised this would not fit into the back of my Corsa so we purchased a Quinny Zapp. When Lauren became big enough to come out of the Maxi Cosi car seat, I realised there was now a new problem, she was too small for the Quinny and as it didn't recline therefore quite uncomfortable.

            I now needed a small pushchair that reclined and a friend recommended the Petite Star Zia, it does everything the Quinny did and more.

            Only slightly bigger that the Quinny, it fits perfectly into my boot. As it was so small and compact, we began to use this as our main pushchair and sold the Graco travel system.

            Folded size 75 x 36 x 34cms, there is only one smaller than this which is the Quinny Zapp which measures Folded: 70 x 25 x 29 cm.

            It also comes with a shopping basket. This is quite small and you cannot get too much in before its full.

            The pushchair is really easy to fold, and you can erect one handed with a kind of flicking motion.

            The little ones can lie down flat in it by adjusting a strap at the rear of the seat, the only down side is it can be a little tricky putting the seat back into an upright position, especially if Lauren was sat in the seat.

            Its worth noting that accessories can be expensive, the first time I went away I needed a Parasol, and whereas you can pick a universal Parasol up for about £8, due to the design of the frame you cannot buy a universal and it was £25. This is the same for the footmuff which again, cost me £25. The raincover is also a special shape however this is normally included in the package.

            Also, I had a tendency to hang all the shopping on the handles, whilst this is great when Lauren was happy to sit in the pushchair, as she got toddling and wanted to get out, no matter how many times I did it I never learnt my lesson and every time she got out, the pushchair tipped up! Luckily it never happened while she was in it.

            This retails for approximately £130, however deals are there to be had if you order online, you can also pick up a used one for around £50-£70 on EBay.

            If you are looking for a lightweight and small pushchair, I would recommend this one over any other.

            Thanks for reading

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            a nice pram for the odd trip but not for all the time

            The petite star zia is a very practical pram, it comes in a variety of vibrant colours, its very easy to push and fold down and unlike the quinny it lays flat it also has a very reasonable price tag.

            Good Points - The good points i have to say would be the fact its very light and easy to push, also the design is very very similar to the Quinny Zapp so if you like the quinny your going to love this one it has most of the same features, it comes in some lovely colours my favourite being the red, it comes with raincover which covers all the pram and keeps baby very dry, it has a very nice cosy footmuff and it lays down!!
            I love the look of the pram its very stylish and it is comfortable for baby it does have a shopping basket but its not very roomy and once the raincover is in it there isnt much room for anything else!

            Bad Points - This pram is quite low i am 5ft 8 and i struggle its uncomfortable for me to push as i need a much higher handled pram, the shopping basket is also small and the other problem is you cannot hang much shopping on the handles at all as the pram tends to tip!
            I dont like only one wheel at the front as to me it seems to be unsteady especially up and down kerbs!

            Overall - i do like this pram but i am only going to rate it 3 out of 5 due to the negative points i much prefer a bigger more stable pram but for the odd journey here and there and maybe holidays or on and off the buses i would recommend this pram but for longer journeys and as a pram to use all the time i would say no!

            Disadvantages

            Excellent choice and good value for money

            When I had my second baby we had a big chunky travel system which was heavy and a nightmare to fold down! When it was time for me to go back to work and my daughter to go to grannys we had to get a smaller lighter pushchair that would still be comfortable for baby. A couple of friends insisted I get the Quinny Zapp but I didn't like the fact that it didn't lie back nor did it have much basket space! I looked around a found the Petite Star Zia and loved it straight away. It is very lightweight, it lies flat and is suitable from a very young age and came in a range of bright colours with matching accesories and if granny needed to fold it down to go in the car it was easy to fold and very compact! And most important my daughter was very comfortable, it has quite a wide seat so there is plenty of room for baby. Good value for money also. I used this til my daughter was two and a half years and even when she was older she still had enough room in it! Would definatley recommend this pushchair even from birth!!!! This is the pushchair to buy!!!!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Lovely pushchair, easy to runaround with and affordable.

            As first time parents we are complete novices when it comes to baby products. The first time I ventured into a High Street store to look around I was very overwelmed and had to resort to looking online and asking parents in forums for reviews.

            So after research I discovered a lot of parents like to have a back up pram/stroller or similar for emergencies and one of the most recommended ones to be was a Petite Zia. Considering I wanted two pushchairs-one travel system and one stroller I decided to buy one of these based on the following:

            the fact it's quite light
            it's easy to 'control' even with one hand (times are hard with a baby around crowded shops so you should always be prepared for the worst)
            it's easy to put up-the worst thing would be a pushchair you need to spend ages putting up!
            Quite frankly the Petite Zia is quite affordable 'new' which can only be a good thing
            it also fits nicely into our Corsas boot which cannot be a bad thing.

            We bought the pink one-although the berry colour is very nice indeed.

            I didn't use this for my newborn, truthfully I didn't think my baby looked at all comfortable (saying that my baby was petite, I do think if your baby is say over 4kg they will look and be quite snug-my baby was only 3kg and seemed lost in the zia). However we use it now. The tyres are very practical, and if I remember correctly the Petite Zia wheels are the type that shouldn't need replacing with regular use, although if they are faulty that would be a different issue.

            So are there any 'cons'? For me there is a few:

            The size of the basket-it's large enough for a small pack of wipes and a bottle but you'd struggle to get more in

            The limited range of colours, in particular unisex colours. I've bought another pushchair and a travel system in unisex colours as we would like to reuse these items should the opportunity appear.

            Having said that, I heard through the grapevine that the company are looking into unisex colour combinations.

            For the price I paid, and the sheer practicality of the model and the fact the item does exactly what is says on the tin I give this item 5 out of 5. If you like me are limited for storage space and quite like a bright funky pushchair this is for you. One of my dear friends has also bought a Petite Zia and says it fits into the boot of her VW Polo. I don't think it would be far to hold a point simply on colour range, as I was free to purchase from another company and pay more for funkier prints.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              A fantastic light weight stroller

              After spending allot of time reading reviews on all sorts of websites about different lightweight strollers we decided on the Petite Star Zia.
              We found it difficult to choose between the Zia and the Quinny Zapp. My husband favoured the Zapp but from my research there didn't seem much of a difference between them, I favoured the Zia because of the little shopping basket & because it reclined. When I bought the Zia the Zapp didn't do either. (Around summer '10)

              I paid £80 for this stroller which included a rain cover. I wanted something very lightweight to keep in the back of my car that could be easily whipped in and out, as and when needed. It has actually done that and more.

              I can pull this buggy out of the boot with one hand and pull it up. Useful when you have a toddler in the other. It can be collapsed and put away in seconds.

              There is a toggle on the back of the seat which lets you recline the seat easily and smoothly when your child is in the stroller. It is harder to put the stroller into an upright position when your child is in the seat. I try to do this before my daughter gets in.

              The stroller steers well and is very nippy, without it feeling flimsy.

              Although I only bought this stroller for occasional use whilst my larger and considerably more expensive buggy had a puncture I used the Zia exclusively and couldn't have been more pleased with its performance and practicality.

              You do have to take care with balancing too many shopping bags on the handles but only if you don't have a child in the stroller. I think most light weight buggies would tip up if overloaded without a child to counterbalance the weight.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              A good all rounder that definately displays value for money

              The Petite Star Zia is a really stylish little push chair. We bought this when our son was around 8 months old to take on holiday with us but we've used it every day since getting it out of the box!

              Our main reason for purchase was it's light weight (only 6kg) and the fact that it folded quite flat so would fit easily in the car.

              The seat lies flat which is handy if your child sleeps in their buggy. There is a small basket underneath the seat but we've found this to be pretty much useless as it is nearly impossible to put anything in it when your child is sat in the pushchair.

              The main advantages of this pushcahir are:
              -Light weight
              -Really easy to fold and put up
              -Good steering, with a front lockable wheel for travelling over bumpy ground
              -Comes with a raincover that fits perfectly
              -Brakes really easy to apply
              -Lies flat

              The main disadvantages would be:
              -Useless shopping basket
              -Quite low height handles which my husband finds uncomfortable to reach
              -The folding mechanism is starting to become loose

              The Petite Star is a good all rounder but it does have its disadvantages. I'd recommend this pushchair though as it displays value for money.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Love Love Love it

              I love this pushchair and would recommend it to everyone. It is such a stylish looking pushchair.

              I paid £100.00 for this puschair including the footmuff, raincover and parasol which is an absolute bargain and I have it in a lovely practical colour which is black and white. They do come in a lovely range of colours though including red/pink, blue, black etc.

              The reason I got this pushchair after trying out lots of different ones in the shop is that it is so easy to push. With it being a three wheeler it rotates brilliantly and it is really bouncy so think it is very comfortable for my son. I also really like the fact that the seat of it is nice and big and wide and he doesn't look squashed in it at all.

              This puschair is also really good because it lies flat so it is suitable from birth although I only bought it when my son was 1 but he still loves to sleep in it and because it lies flat he always has a good long nap in it.

              The basket underneath it is a reasonable size not massive and you can't put anything in it when the puschair is laid back but I think that is the same for most puschairs. It does fit a few things in it though. Also to say it is a three wheeler it holds quite a lot of shopping on the handles and does not tip over which is great.

              The only thing about it that is a little annoying is the way you adjust the seat as to make it lie flat sometimes the catch you pull on the back gets stuck on mine so I do really need two hands to do it but that is a minor issue.

              The harness is easy to fit together and is nice and secure and has comfort shoulder pads to make it more comfortable.

              Another great thing about it is that it folds down really easily. All you have to do is press a button in the middle and then lift the two catches on the handle bars at either side and push it forwards and it folds onto itself. I have found it very easy to do one handed which really helps and it is nice and small so fits in the car boot very easily. The handles on mine are also great as they extend so when someone taller is pushing it it is still comfortable for them.

              The footmuff and raincover that come with it and both really nice and I really like the raincover as it fits over very snug so when it is on it looks neat and does not stick out everywhere. The footmuff is lovely and snug as it is fleece lined.

              I cannot fault the quality of this pushchair it pushes and looks like it is much more expensive than it was and I think it will last for a long time.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              The positives far outweigh the negatives!

              This is the third Pushchair we have owned and was bought because it is easily foldable and even easier to assemble and folds down to pratically nothing. Okay, that's a slight exaggeration but it is one of the most compact pushchairs that money can buy!

              We needed a small pushchair because I only have a KA and so do not have much room in my car for a big, bulky pushchair and there are times when I might need to take the pushchair with me when I go out. This model not only fits in my compact boot but, when that is full, also sits nicely in the front passenger seat.

              It is extremely light, at only 6.3kg, but don't be fooled into thinking that this is by any means perfect. It is fixed at a certain height which may be a problem for some taller people! At 5"11, it has not been a problem for me but I know some people for whom it has put them off! Also the tyres are not that durable and are easily peirced with stones however this does not impair the pushchair in any way or make it any less comfortable to travel in!

              Personally, I really like this pushchair and think it is a winner! It is the best of the three we have owned even if the others were more adjustable to my height so I could stand straighter whilst pushing them but this factor is a small price to pay for what is a very neat little pushchair that is easily transportable and worth every penny you pay for it!
