    Default Hi-pod i-fold stroller/pram?

    Hi,
    Have started researching prams even though i'm not pregnant with my third yet Have seen the hipod i-fold at Target which looks very similar to the city mini one i liked but thought was a tad out of the rice range. The i-fold retails for $299 but Target always have sales so I'd be able to get it cheaer. Anyone have one or know if they're good? Ive had a phil n teds in the past which was good but i want a smaller, lighter pram and won't need the toddler seat this time. I have a mclaren stroller but it's only from 5mths so want to get something suitable from birth, i also really like the idea of the big sunshade on the i-fold, the mclaren doesnt have this.

    I have one
    It's the britax b-agile rebranded and updated to Australian standards (red brake system) for target. I. Got it for $180 in the toy sale.
    I love it!!! There is nothing I can fault on it. The canopy is massive. It's easy to steer and has good storage for a compact pram. It's also super easy to fold up/out.

    awesome! that's what i wanted to hear thank you. So, is all the hi-pod stuff made by britax? I don't suppose there's a car capsule that fits into it? I'm just thinking I may want to get a capsule this time, never had one with my other two but this time i'll have a lot of school drop offs, etc. and thought it might be easier to not have to fiddle with putting baby in and out of car seat.

    I don't know if it fits a capsule, but I got one for my mum to use when she looks after my dd and it's a great pram. We borrowed it for a recent holiday as it folds so small and was easy to pack in amongst our stuff. It's not as good to push as my mountain buggy and it's not got an adjustable handle so being tall I find it a teeny bit annoying, but for the price it's fantastic! I think we got it for $199 or so at a toy sale too

    Yep, all made by britax.
    I'm not sure if it's capsule compatible, call customer service and check.

    Maclaren strollers do have the big sun hood but not all models. The vogue and Xlr have it from what I know.
