Advantages: pushes great, safe
Disadvantages: don't like the look when children are facing outwards.
As soon as I started taking Summer into my care (my youngest adopted daughter), I knew I wanted a bugaboo for her. I saw how well they pushed, the expansion on them and everything. A Quinny pram was my second choice, but I wasn't awfully disappointed with it. Taking care of Summer was a last minute and awfully rushed decision, I didn't want the stinky, smelly, tabaco-covered pram her biological Mum (my SIL) was offering me. I knew I had to do the best by summer, and this is why I wanted a good pram. I was a first timer and never really had any experience of pushing buggies around the town, so Quinny made this a lot easier for me.
I had my heart set on the pink one, but in the end I was stuck with the red, which I wasn't too fussed about because the important thing was she had a pram. The price was £300 but luckily my husband paid for it and I was over the moon with it. At that point I was unsure what the difference between a good buggy and a bad buggy was, and what was the difference between an expensive buggy and a cheap one.
As I said I would have much preferred the pink but the red is not bad and it does have a stylish and expensive look to it. The handle can go both ways and I do not in any way like the look of it when it is pushed with the baby facing forward. It looks strange because it seems almost like the baby is standing up and is going to tipple out. The frame of it at the bottom doesn't look too sturdy to begin with but eventually you get used to it, and the three wheels look very strange but again, you do get used to the look.
The baby is well strapped in with the pram and there is a bar which clips over which made me feel very safe when Summer was in. The brakes work fine and as long as Summer was facing me and not the outside of the road, I felt she was safe in it too. I loved the carry cot and I could lay her in it knowing she could sleep safely which really made my day easier.
It find it pushes very easily which I felt make me a bit more comfortable about pushing it. It almost glides along which is great as the streets in Glasgow are very gravely and bumpy. I found turning a bit awkward because of the size of the wheels but I suppose a lot of prams are like that anyway. The seat is made of an almost "spongy" material but it was easy to clean when she sometimes spilt some crisp or milk over it. I had trouble setting up the basket bit at the bottom when I first got it, but it turned out fine at the end and although it was small, it was great for holding in a few bottles of juice that were far too heavy to be carrying myself. The adjustable handle is great as my Mum is incredibly taller than me so she could take over at times. The rain cover is great although I don't know any rain cover that isn't okay. It folds up and down in one go which saves all that juggling around with the pram to fold it into a boot (although I don't drive so that's not much of a problem anyway).
It has a few issues, but it was worth the money. I sold it on ebay for £80 which wasn't bad :)
Summary: I loved it.
