    Default Re: Is this expensive?

    Isofix is a type of attachment system that uses 2 rigid bars with clasps on the end to hook into hooks behind the seat cushion. Not legal in aus yet but will be soon, however many cars in Australia don't have it. The top tether strap attached from the seat to the anchor point in the car. Australian seats use a seatbelt and top tether strap to secure them

    The car seat will come with a car seat protector.

    Not sure what lamb wool underlay your talking about, assuming it's winkalots they are all around $99?

    Did you get 2 bellybars, snack trays and rain covers or just 1?

    Comes to $1983 from pramwarehouse with just one of each and $2112 with 2 of each, not including the underlay.

    Thats..

    Pram
    2nd seat kit
    bellybar
    snack tray
    rain cover
    parent console
    travel bag
    cooler bag
    bassinet kit
    travel cot
    car seat

    So your saving around $500? Not sure about postage with winkalots but to get that all delivered to Perth from pramwharehouse it's $110.

    You can get the bjcs cheaper online along with the meridian and cot.

    Do you really need all the other little things?

    is that including postage as well?

    Also a bit off topic but from memory the cooler bag doesn't actually fit on the of the BJCS, the pram is a bit too wide for the straps on the cooler (unless they have changed it from a year ago)

    If you're going to buy everything on that list, I'd try a baby store and ask for a deal. We bought everything for DD at once and saved about $500 in the end off a $2500 sale.

    If there is no postage on top then it's probably an ok deal, I would probably scout out some more local baby stores and see what sort if deal they will do everything for
