    That's funny, I had the same issues with 3 wheelers as you, just felt thru weren't me and I wanted a reversible seat so I could see DS. I ended up with mountain buggy swift, 3 wheeler and got the bassinet which faces me so I can see him. He's pretty much outgrown the bassinet now but I think he enjoys watching the world now when we're out. I gotta say I love the swift, it's so light and narrow so I never feel like I'm in the way when we're out trying to navigate the crowds. It's important to get a pram you love though!

    Based on the things you said you like, and that you can get 60% of P&T , have you looked at their verve, promenade or smart buggy? The promenade is their newest, and it looks very much like a lot of the newer prams (ie: BJSC, bugaboo, bertini, etc) I guess it depends what style you like too! I would suggest trying a heap of prams somewhere like baby buntings, make your decision and if it happens to be a P&T or MB, then great, if not just say thanks but no thanks! Also, P&T make a GREAT travel cot, if he can that cheap I'd take him up on that offer!

    When i bought my pram the price was the main factor, the pram was easy to use but it looked like a boy pram. It has one of those plush steering wheels at the front and the colours are red and blue, it would have been fine if we had a boy but we had a little girl so I have never really liked my pram. I know I sound strange. My point is you do have to love the pram you have because as pp have said it is something you will use everyday. I wish I had have spent more on a pram i loved and next time we will spend more on a pram that's neutral haha.

    I also felt that three wheelers weren't me- it took me three kids to realise mountain buggies are the bomb! Like PP said, you can out the bassinet in facing you when they are little.

    If there is no convincing you of how great they are, I agree with others that its a waste of money getting something you don't like just coz its 60% off.

    Are there prams you do like in the $4-500 range? You could get a good cot off ebay/gumtree for $200-300, a new mattress for $100 (i think), some linen for $100 and you'd come in on budget?

    Go the 60% off.

    It's just a pram. And at least it's 60% off a good brand that a lot of people swear by, not just some random brand.

    I don't get the big thing about prams. I just see it as a method of getting from a to b. Oh I get that it has to fit in your car & be easy to lift, collapse, move around blah blah but overall it's not going to ruin your day if it hasn't got loads of features. I'm genuinely asking, not trying to be difficult or derail the thread, but why is it so important to get a pram that you love? Can't it just be one that you like?

    She said like. She doesn't like the 60% off pram.

    If you don't like it and are unlikely to be unhappy with a pram you don't like then definitely don't buy one even at 60% off. Totally not worth it. You'll either be disgruntled with it every time you use it or you will crack and buy another one and it will have been a false economy.
