Advantages: Stylish, ergonomic, promotes baby-parent interaction
This is not a cheap pram by any stretch of the imagination, but it's currently highly fashionable after Charlotte from Sex and the City had one for her baby.
So, the first and most important question: is it worth the price tag?
Why is pretty simple: it's sturdy, absurdly easy to push, fully adjustable so daddies and mummies can move the handle to a comfortable height without dismantling the whole thing, encourages parent-baby interaction because the baby's high up and facing the parent, keeps the baby out of the way of car fumes and such and is incredibly styling. It comes in a core range of six colours and once you have the frame all the fabric bits come off for easy washing (40 degrees, no more) and can be replaced with a different textile set if you want to change it up a bit.
The one I have is a limited edition beige and it is frankly astonishing how much punishment in the form of spills from my monster roll right off it.
Various packages are available from about £400 to £1000+, depending on what you want. There's a carry cot (not necessary as the seat has a newborn insert but a nice addition), rain covers for cot and seat, foot muff, shopping bag that could hold a medium sized dog, maybe two, a clip to attach a car seat, changing bag, blankets, parasol.... and an all-new pair of add-ons, a toddler board and a cupholder.
The resale value on these is pretty high as well - you can expect to get back most of what you pay for it after one child, after a few have been through it it'll have made back most of its worth and you'll still get a fair amount for it.
If you're not sure about it, try a test push. But only if you can afford to buy it - if you push it and don't buy one you'll have Stokke envy for the rest of your pram-pushing days.
Summary: Reassuringly expensive pushchair totally worth the money
