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!
Summary: Ideal for trips, shopping, holidays
