    Default Pram Shopping - Strider Compact

    Hi all
    I am going to be a first time Mum in August and I have started looking at Prams... who knew it would be so overwhelming.
    I have my heart set on the Strider Compact, I love the look, the storage, it glides around so easily. We looked at it in Baby Bunting on Saturday but the sales assistant wasn't too keen on it and she instead recommended to us the Baby Jogger Mini GT stroller, I didn't really like this one.
    Does anyone have the Strider Compact? Any opinions will be great!
    Thank you

    I have it bubs due this weekend and so far I love it, although will be able to give you a better report once she arrives!

    I bought it cause it fits in my Mazda 3, its easy to put up and down, light enough, has the infant carrier and lots of room for shopping underneath...

    I bought it from baby bunting and the lady recommended it... Hmm

    Hi. I have it and will be trying it out soon with my bubs when we get home. She is 24 hours old!
    I bought the pram but bassinett second hand it was in new condition and cheap! I also got tge car capsule.
    for us it ticked the most boxes. I love the way it steers so easily. It was a bit more than budgeted but it will fit another baby if we have more or resell at a fairly good price.

    If I was to pick between the compact and mini GT for a newborn then I'd pick the compact. I'm a big baby jogger fan and have not long ago sold my select but still have the mini and GT double but wasn't keen on the mini versions for newborns unless you are going to get the attachments for capsule or bassinet.

    Well no need to tell me twice lol. I'm getting the Strider Compact!
    Congrats acerbaby on your new little addition and all the best Nicsta for this weekend. I wish I didn't have to wait till August for my little one to arrive.

    No you don't need it at all of course unless you want to get it.
