UPPAbaby Vista 3 In 1 Pram
Advantages: Roomy and comfortable.
Disadvantages: Wide back wheels mean collisions can happen if you're not careful.
After much looking online I had my pram choice narrowed down to a choice of 2, the Uppababy Vista or the iCandy Peach. I went to my local independent pram shop to try out the iCandy but found I didn't love it as much as I had expected too so I then went to John Lewis to check out the Vista and I have to admit, I was so impressed that I went home and ordered one straight away from Groovystyle.co.uk (they have a discount for Facebook fans).
The Vista is everything I wanted in a pram, some of it's features include:
*a massive shopping basket
*one handed fold
*press on/press off brake so fit flop friendly!
*you can push with one hand which is essential if you have other children
Included in the box is:
*Two SPF 50 Sunshades
*Two Insect Nets
*Maxi Cosi / BeSafe iZi Go Infant Car Seat adapters
The carrycot is very spacious and comes with a comfortable, ventilated mattress, my daughter is almost 6 months old and she still has plenty of room. The carrycot is suitable for sleeping in through the night so handy if you go away or if someone is babysitting in their home rather than yours. The raincover and the mosquito net for the carrycot also fit on the compatible car seats, I haven't used the mosquito net but the rain cover is of good quality and has a space at the top so you can access the carry handle of the carrycot or car seat. To attach the raincover you just pull it over and it is held snug to the pram with elastic around the bottom.
The seat unit, which is suitable from 6 months, is nice and roomy. My almost three year old was very comfortable in it and you have the option of the seat facing out or parent facing. It is very easy to change round, just unclip the seat unit and lift it off, turn it round and slot back into place. Another huge plus point is that the fabric is removable and washable so if your child has a leaky nappy or is ill it's very easy to clean the pram.
My favourite feature of all has to be the shopping basket. I have never seen one so big except on the old coach built prams! As I don't drive I love the fact I can fit a good amount of shopping under the pram and as this pram is a dream to push, it doesn't feel as heavy as some other prams even with 3 or 4 bags of groceries underneath.
One criticism I do have is the back wheels are wider apart than the front wheels. It takes a bit of getting used to to ensure you don't bump into things after thinking you will fit through a gap!
The Uppababy Vista comes in eight colours;
I went for the orange as I feel it's gender neutral plus it's nice and cheery which is a bonus in dreary Scotland!
The Uppababy Vista retails at £629.99.
Summary: Out of all the prams i have owned this is my favourite, I would recommend it to everyone.
