    If you don't mind about the warranty then I'd say go for it. I just got a baby jogger city mini GT double for $620 including postage saving $380 buying it here. There are no extra costs included if you spend under $1000

    There are a few prams they won't ship to aus anymore. Just because the safety standards are different. But a freight forwarder can send it over.

    What are the safety differences sorry? And what would normally go wrong on a pram just wheels etc?

    (I was looking at a second hand mountain buggy but these prices seem justified enough to go brand new!!!)

    Australian standards dictate that the pram must have a RED brake and must have the wrist strap on the handle for you to put your wrist through so the brake can't roll away. They are not big differences and I am sure most Aussies are smart enough to find the brake even if it's not red but because it doesn't technical meet the Aus Standards they can't 'import' it.

    Thank you- I have been looking at buying a pram from overseas & a cot or would a cot be too risky?! Just the price difference and the different looks they have!!

    I don't think the safety differences would be huge in the cots, if at all. America has the same sort of SIDS campaigns as us. I don't think the differences in stroller safety is huge either, they only amended it recently to include the red brake and the strap after 2 incidents where prams rolled off train platforms.

    Thank you so much! It is so much cheaper for us to purchase from there
