    Default Would youbuy, or have you bought a (new) pram from Ebay?

    I'm having a terrible time finding any pram I like instore! Money isn't a limitation and we have checked everything out from Bugaboo to the plain old layback strollers!

    I found a stroller & bassinet combination on ebay that I adore but Im a little worried about the quality, Ive emailed asking about the manufacturer and if it comes with warranty, but Im still waiting on a reply. It meets the current Aust safety standards.

    Would you do it? Have you done it and was the quality ok?

    Ahh I love the rockstar baby! Shame they no longer make them My sister was trying to get her hands on one too... we were looking a few months before we both fell pregnant, we found one but never bought it as we thought it would be silly as neither of us was pregnant ... now we are both pregnant and due within 8 weeks of each other

    Haha well I'm in qld, they seem very popular. I never used it much. Apparently it doesn't fit in a suzuki swift's boot.

    I bought my Bugaboo off eBay! We are big eBay users so it was a smooth, cheap & easy transaction! Just make sure the seller has high ratings & great feedback.

    Yeah massive pain. It's a big pram but a nice soft ride with all the padding and suspension!

    I have a bugaboo bee. Its the best. I didn't get it off eBay but.

    Sure did.

    I bought an obaby triplet last year, never had a problem till I ran over it. DH is fixing it.

    Was the only place I could find what I was after.

    Doesn't meet aust standards (red brake) but that's not an issue.

    Exactly the same for me and advice regarding seller rating is spot on. Brought a Bugaboo Chameleon with no issues at all
