This looks good, but am unsure how it compares with this deal

Any ideas?
#2
good find, a cheap travel system. The difference between the 2 prams is that this includes a car seat suitable from birth. Voted hot
#3
Depends if the car seat is any good tho, not sure how it compares in crash tests
[mod]#4
Great deal solid! You're getting loads for under 50 quid :)

I would throw out that car seat straight away. Even as a 15 year old boy with no intentions to have kids until my age at least doubles, I have read all the horror stories of how bad and badly fitted car seats can often do more harm than good in accidents and elsewhere.

Always buy from somewhere like Halfords or Mothercare where you can get the guy to fit it.

Would you trust one of these with your child's life? Is their life only worth £50?

EDIT: Just remembered that since a week last Tuesday, I'm 15 :)

WHAT???

This will have passed the same safety standards that one from Halfords will have. It's as good as any other!!!

And why get someone to fit it for you??? Read the instructions, they're not that difficult! You'll be taking the car seat out on a daily basis so are you suggesting that you get someone to fit it again everyday? Otherwise you've wasted the whole point of them putting it in on day one.

With a new born in hospital they are supposed to check that you have a suitable car seat if you are driving so unless they are going to go to the car then you have to take it out before the baby ever goes in it anyway!!!

Tempted but we are still 7 months away from D day so must resist temptation and not tempt fate by buying things so soon for an as yet unborn.

Suggest you have a look at the Which reviews of car seats, there's a HUGE difference in safety between models

Most car seats are not fitted correctly.

What I mean is that they have all passed the test to say they are safe, there are of course some that are safer but it's up to the individual how far they want to go to be safe (ie to be safe you'd never get in the car in the first place) so you're choosing to bring an element of risk upon your child anyway.

Car seats are not difficult to fit, there maybe a load of stupid people out there who can't follow the instructions and fit it properly but if you get it fitted by Halfords then before your child's even in it you will probably take the car seat out (and do so nearly everyday). So other than getting someone to read the instructions for you and show you how to fit it they won't have done anything for you. Just get a friend who can read to do it for you!

There's a minimum standard for safety, but I don't think the £15 cheapo car seat is as safe as the £90 Brittax that's been cleared to fit in your car.

Agreed, some of the cheap seats offer very little protection yes they pass the minimum safety tests but these are very poor tests in the first place , Which also test side impact and at higher speeds than the minimum that is required.

You can get a Maxi Cosi seat from Kiddicare for around £55 and thats one of the safest around, if your child was killed or badly injured in a accident then you wish you had spent a little bit more on a safer seat.

Not all car seats fit all cars. This includes the car seats that come with travel systems. I only realised this when I started working at Babies R Us!

I've seen a lot of people come in to buy a travel system, we've taken the car seat out to the car & it didn't fit properly. Yeah sure you can take it & strap it in but what matters is whether the car seat moves when you put a bit of force on it. If it moves, it ain't safe!

The amount of car seats I've seen fitted in cars that do not fit correctly is scary!

i would say this is a good system for someone who doesnt drive, and only needs a seat to get from hospital to home - better than 2nd hand or borrowed, looks like a good puschair for public transport. Even if you just wanted a pushchair this is a great price - cheaper thn most strollers.
#16
I think you will find that this is a well known brang GRACO they dont sell rubbish the who set is normally aroung £100 but its in a sale as its end of season stock. THey sell GRACO at mothercare. This is a really good find and you can buy the BASe for this car seat so it is most def safe their car seats are all very simular. voted super hot

Just to update:

I bought both (!) of the pushchairs (the other pushchair (Mama & Papa) is linked in the second post of this thread). The M&P is nice, with folding very easy and it all feels very well put together.

However, it is over £30 more, and the Century pushchair was lighter (quite significantly) and also easy to fold (but not easier than the M&P). Plus, the Century one was also more "storller-like" than the M&P

So, the M&P was duly returned for the better value Century

Just because it has a car seat doesn't mean you need a car, these are a great way of moving a sleeping baby from the pushchair to another room in the house when you get in without waking them up. I don't have a car but still get a pushchair with the car seat, you can deal with baby easier if they are facing you rather than having to stop in the middle of the street and have people tutting at you for being in their way(even if your not really), it is also good if you don't drive but a family member or friend does, you could then get a lift somewhere if needed and the baby will be safe.

Dont forget that between 17th and 30th October argos are offering £5 voucher if you spend £50 and £10 if you spend £100

Just to let y'all know, I have just bought this pushchair and its EXCELLENT built quality and you get soo much for the money. looks great and is also VERY easy to open and close the chair (without hands even!) They baby seat also looks very well built (not sure about safety etc) but it has full instructions. and in my case is not much of an issue as I drive the car whilst the wif will hold the seat and keep an eye on the baby anyway.

Hopefully there is a car seat review by someone but the kit is excellent for the money. You even get a decent bag to carry milk nappies etc.

Under £50 Bargain. :thumbsup:

Also for those worried about the seat please note this Complies with ECE 44/03!!, similar to £300/400 puschair sets, so im assuming the seat is safe to use regardless of the price.
