View Full Version : Is it true!?!?!?! Phil & Ted's e3
I was just talking to a cosin of mine in WA and she has a Phil & Ted's e3 Jogger and she said she has no problems getting it to fit down the register aisle! This is my biggest fear when i come to buying a jogger :o .
Does anyone else find this or are the aisles just wider in WA?????
I can fit it through most supermarket register aisles - occasionally at a supermarket that I don't normally go to I need to go out through the disabled access queue, but normally it is fine.
Thanks so much, you have made my mind up!!!! Phil & Ted's it is! Your wonderfull! Cheers! :D
I'm sure the aisles are no wider here in WA. My jogger pram only fits the disabled aisle. If anything the aisles might be smaller? Even the normal shopping carts get stuck trying to get out of regular check outs at one Coles I used to go to, and had to be forceably shoved through!
Can i ask what sort of pram you have. Maybe its through lack of looking but there only seems to be one disabled register at most of the big stores. the kmart i usually go to never even has that one open! Maybe were a bit behind down here in tassie! :o
It's a Valco Runabout (standard) I think. http://www.valco.com.au/ProductList.asp?ID=13.
I have few complaints at all with it actually. Tracks well, easy to turn or the front wheel can be locked to stay straight. Easy to push one handed (I usually have 2 dog leashes in the other hand). I used it from newborn with the seat fully reclined to now with dd 1.5 yrs old. Can fit a bassinet to it, or a toddler seat if you need. All 3 wheels come off quickly to make a smaller package for fitting in the car if necessary. Mine would fit in the boot with just one rear wheel off. Now that dd is older I have a smaller light stroller that lives in the car just for shopping and the 3 wheeler is for walks and the park.
Only little things I don't fully like:
- The storage basket underneath is an ok size but not very accessible with the seat fully reclined - I've seen others which were better for this.
- unless the seat is reclined there is little airflow through the seat area from front to back. The back flap can be rolled up but the seat itself and side panels are solid. Mesh might be better, tho you lose shade.
- Now that dd is older and sitting up, I've noticed that the most upright seat position still leaves her sitting partly reclined and slouching. Which is ok I guess if you're out on uneven surfaces, but it doesn't give her a very good view so at places like the zoo or even out shopping she doesn't seem as engaged in what's going on as I've seen some other bubs. Hard to explain...
