    Pram yes. I bought mine from the States and had it shipped over.
    I also bought our Baby Bjorn portacot there too. It was about $250 cheaper... We travel a lot so a light portacot was a must for us.

    Clothes and shoes! So much better variety and cheaper - especially if you are having a boy as our range here is so limited!

    Everything....literally. We stocked up on designer baby clothes and baby bag for a fraction of the price they are here. My only regret is thay wish I had bought more!

    My capsule was half price from the states, including postage! Seriously can't understand what the mark up is about here!

    That wouldn't be legal here though.

    Doubt it would've met Australian standards. We got gifted one from nz and it wasn't legal here

    Fairly certain the States has the same five-point harness requirements as Australia. The UK doesn't though.

    I did a big bulk buy of clothes for dd before she was born. My sil lives in the US so I had it sent to her for free then she forwarded it on (took everything out of the packaging as well to make it lighter for postage) I didn't need to buy anything for dd from here until we hit summer again, 9mths later
