    Default 2nd Hand Pram??

    Has anyone here used / bought a 2nd hand pram and was it ok?

    Im considering buying one for my next baby as i want a different pram to the one I have but Im just wondering if I will be disappointed....

    I dont want to buy new as I only want to use it for a short time, and I already have a perfectly good walking pram. I want the Bugaboo for going to the shops or places as its a bit smaller than what I have and good for a newborn. Once bubs is 8 months or so Ill probably get a stroller!

    I consider myself a clean person who takes care of my things but having used my own pram for 22 months, it has had a lot of use on long walks, in and out of the car and a child eating in it. Im sure it would clean up ok but hmmmm just thinking out loud I guess!

    Yes, i brought a second hand pram at a garage sale and it has been great. I would want to look at the pram in person first to make sure it was okay and i'd give it a good clean, even if it looked clean (but i'm a bit funny about stuff like that).

    Yes, we bought a 2nd hand pram, and it's the best pram we have. It's so sturdy, and my kids love it! I just put the toddler seat back on it in preparation for the new babe, and DS2 has fallen in love all over again!

    We bought a second hand bugaboo cameleon and it's in fantastic condition, for less than half of what we would have paid brand new.
