I bought this pram when I was 14 weeks pregnant as I liked the look of it, and my husband thought it was not too girly and he could put it up and down very easily - not always the best reasons for buying a pram.
However it is very stylish, but style comes at a price - the pushchair itself - frame, seat, rain cover and mini bag retails at around £300, other accessories are very expensive - the shopping bag which attaches underneath is £15, the foot muff is £50 and the carrycot is £150.
Its more than just a pram, it is a travel system. This means you can attach a compatible car seat to the frame (we have the maxi cosi cabriofix car seat £109 ) for ease of use when baby is still small, unlike many other travel systems on the market the car seat does not sit in the pushchair, this is a massive advantage as it reduces the weight of the pushchair - which is really noticeable when you are walking uphill!
The carrycot is lovely, it is lovely and lined but this lining is machine washable- great for a sickly baby. It also attaches directly onto the frame and it was very useful for letting my baby fall asleep while out on a walk detaching the carrycot from the frame when we got indoors and he remained asleep throughout. You can also use the carrycot instead of a mosses basket which was handy for when we were visiting friends and relatives.
The pushchair is very good if you want your baby to be facing you when you are out and about, a speech and language therapist told me this increases your babies speech development as they are basically a captive audience watching you talk to them while you walk. The pushchair seat can also be turned to face outwards which is handy if you are out sight seeing, feeding the ducks etc.
The negatives we found are the wheels/tyres. We have had numerous punctures and the front wheel often gets stuck and drags when you are pushing, making it really awkward, a bit like pushing a shopping trolley with a wonky wheel.
Summary: Stylish but expensive
