Parent Reviews and Comments

I absolutely loved this pram for one child at a time. Main advantages were that bub could face you or face away from you. Main seat was easy to turn around.  Toddler seat could also be attached if bub was facing you or away from you. Pram was very stable with both kids facing you and was pretty good facing away (i never had a problem). it had a huge basket and adjustable handle and a decent sized hood. Really easy to fold. main seat could be took on and off easily.Very easy to manouver over pretty much any terrain. Great for going out walking.

Disadvantages were that when toddler seat was attached and you had a baby in main seat baby didnt have much room to move once they started wanting to sit up a bit, bub would be really close (too close) to toddler seat and wouldn't fit once they got some size about them (eg 9/10mths). And this pram is a big pram and a very heavy pram.

Despite its disdavantages i loved it until I had to use it for two kids. Even though bulky when folded and heavy, once i got the hang of it could easily get it in the boot of my fairmont in one piece.

I thought I did awesome research into which pram we wanted but the practicality of this pram just isn't there. It's heavy and big (HUGE) even when folded down. It takes up the entire boot space of our Subaru Forester (2008 model, so the bigger one) We are unable to do groceries when we have the pram. The seat is really awkward, my son is nearly 5 months and wants to sit up but there are only three layback settings, lying down, halfway and straigh up and down which folds him in two. I hate the way he sits in it. It looks extremely uncomfortable. The basket is hard to access when the seat is facing you. It is overly wide, hard to manouvre and just generally a giant monstrosity. The only thing we like about it is the pneumatic tyres.
