I have a bebe confort loola and i love it, we hate the weird looking prams that are out at the moment too.
We have the car seat that clips on to the frame and the seat can face mum or out the way which is brilliant! xx

This is similar to the mamas and papas MPX if you want an alternative which is also a chassis with a separate carry cot and seat unit
http://www.mamasandpapas.co.uk/product-ultima-8-in-1-mpx-chassis-famiglia/257565001/type-i/

A couple of other brands to look at for this style of pushchair are Mutsy and Bebeconfort.

thanks both of you ive never looked into bebe confort loola i will look now thanks for that
and im not too keen on mamas and papas i was in the shop today and i didnt think they were as nice as the silver cross one in terms of comfort and padding ect they are ALOT better looking than some of the others out ther at the mo

It is very similar to the silver cross 3d so just a pramette. I have the britax visio , as it was cheap at £100 and i dont keep prams that long. My little boy is just 6 weeks old and it have been fab so far but no doubt i will get another a few months down the line. Have you had a looke at these prams? Graco cleo, mamas and papas pilko, silver cross 3d they are slightly cheaper and look the same to me x

i wanted a hard carry cot type one thats why i liked the silvercross one i know its more bulky and i wont use it for more than 12 weeks but i will defo use it for walking to the school and things and i like the idea of this more than a pramette they are like a buggy style i think, no one seems to have prams anymore tho so cant get advice on how good this one i like is they all pramette type ones now grrrr the silver cross 3d is lovely tho i was looking at this one today in mothercare :thumbsup:

thanks hun, I loved the silver cross one you mentioned but for me i would be too bulky as it needs to be taken apart to fold (i think?)
We had the silver cross 3D which was fine when she was just newborn but now she hates lying on her back (but is too young to be facing away from me) which is why we bought the loola, its brilliant!
Just wish id bought it first lol do you know what your having? the oxygen blue one is gorgeous for a boy :)

Bambino direct have the Linear Sleepover with free changing bag & footmuff for £420

I agree that it is very similar to the M & P MPX chasis. I had an M & P pliko pramette and i wouldn't recommend tbh... far better prams available for the price.

My sister has just bought a Silvercross freeway on Linear chasis and it is lovely, cant comment on the wear and durability though as her baby is only 2 weeks old.

My other sister has a bebecar vector 2 in 1 which is also very similar and a really sturdy well built chasis, i had never heard or seen one until hers and although RRP is pricey there are lots online well below that... i would definately recommend:

good thing about it is it's very easy to put up and down, you can just put the car seat on the frame if you want, the pram can also face either way so when our little one is a bit bigger it will turn into a pushchair type buggy :thumbsup:

this is the one we've got:

along with this car seat which jusrt clips on the frame:

I don't know alot about the prams out at the mo...

but I bought one a couple of years ago with inflatable tyres - and they were a nightmare - kept going down and the pump didn't fit very well. The angle you needed to get into to get a good connection was impossible.

I would say try to stick to harder moulded tyres.

Best of luck with the birth XxX

After spending £600 on a quinny i would never again. I love it , especially fact its 3 wheeler and robust. But its also quite heavy and cumbersome. So many times ive waited for a bus on designated disable route for a bus to turn up with steps. Now my son us 16 months i could collape it to take it on if i had someone to watch DS whilst i did it.

Unless you gonna use it ,more or less everyday id seriously reconsider as now i want a light weight push chair but feel it such a waste all i spend on teh quinny as i thought it be only one id buy. But its just proving too heavy and cumbersome for daily use.

No way would i spend more than £300 again. Mothercare have their own versions of 3 -wheelers for this moeny and i wish i had bought that saving the rest to get push chair now

No probs, I would agree with you actually that silver cross is probably a better choice than Mamas and Papas. Seriously, though, have a look at the Mutsy 4rider it is really nice and a solid pram with a carrycot.

i can see what you mean with the bulkyness and using it on busses ect i know what im letting my self in for i want it for walking only so i want a large one i will store indoors and use for walking so its nice to push and big and cosy for the baby ill get a smaller one for shopping ect dont tell the hubby yet tho shhhh hee hee when i had my 1st i had a big pram and i used busses everyday it was a nightmare it looked pretty tho so i can understand why you wanting somthing quicker to put down ect theres a fair few in mothercare with offers on at tho mo,

We got this well my parents bought this for us from toys r us/babies r us http://www.toysrus.co.uk/Babies-R-Us/Travel-and-Pushchairs/Travel-Systems-and-Pushchairs/Travel-systems/Graco-Quattro-Tour-Deluxe-Travel-System-in-Retrospot(0026435) As it had EVERYTHING you need and it has a bit that you can make it into a pram which was really nice and the base unit that stays in car was a time saver as this is fixed in with the belt and the car seat just clips in..my sister wished this was around or her 3. Saves battling with strap every time.

Hiya!

Firstly, Congratulations on your expected arrival!!!

I bought the bebecar grand plus from Glasgow Pram Centre. It has a lovely big hard bodied carry cot and a huge big pushchair. My daughter was in the carry cot until she was 6 months and at nearly a year old she's still in the push chair with loads of room and always looks comfortable!! I don't like the modern looking things either and that's the reason I picked the bebecar - it's quite old fashioned and traditional looking:

http://www.pramcentreonline.co.uk/shop/product.php?product_id=3828

http://www.babyretail.co.uk/acatalog/bebecar_grand_style_nevis_lge.jpg

(two different websites but gpc doesn't have a picture of the push chair online!)

As for the Silver Cross Vintage - we bought that for my partners sons' baby and it is a lovely pram but I would say it's quite small looking in the carry cot - that may be because the bebecar one is so big though.

Hope this helps and it's not just a whole load of rambling on that you already know!

Good luck!!

Aly, Ian & Cerys!!
