Silver Cross FLOP!

Silver Cross Pop
Advantages: Big hood with peephole, lies flat, large basket, cup holder and hood pocket.
Disadvantages: Small seat, awkward leg/foot rest, poor fitting straps and high handles.
We needed a lightweight, compact buggy for my daughter, as the M&P Luna (which I love) took up too much room in the car. So we went to Mothercare and noticed the new Silver Cross Pop in Vogue Bon Bon design (limited edition, black bars etc.) and fell in love with how lovely it looked. Had read lots of great reviews, and noticing it was on offer with £50 off we snapped it up.
It has a lovely big hood, with a fantastic peep hole, and pocket (perfect for chucking some cash and your phone in when popping to the shops), cup holder, big shopping basket and an easy to use raincover. It looks very nice, and handles very well too. A huge plus is that it lies totally flat.
However, the negatives outweigh the positives for me. The handles are very high, I am only 5 ft 1 and find it quite annoying having the handles so high up. The hood keeps popping off and always looks a bit wonky. But most disappointing is the fact that it just looks so uncomfortable, my daughter finds it difficult to sit up straight in it regardless of adjustments made to the seat, the straps just do not work well, as cause baby to slouch in whatever position, the seat pad itself is really small, so when the leg rest is down she has very little room to sit comfortably (and she is quite small for a 2 year old) and when the leg rest is up it sags in the middle so the feet have nowhere comfortable to rest.
It is now at grandma's and gets used for a total of about an hour a week. Very expensive for a second, barely used, uncomfortable buggy.
Summary: Disappointing Silver Cross buggy, uncomfortable and awkward positioning
