Really, what is the difference over a £200 pushchair apart from the name?

Seriously though you will use a travel system for approx 15 months as that is as long you get out of the compatible car seat after baby grows out of the car seat most people buy a smaller stroller. Baby will be walking by then anyway and have their own opinion about going in the pushchair.

Definitely get a pushchair that has the universal car seat adapters. These are compatible with maxi cosi, Cybex, besafe etc car seats. You do want a quality car seat if you have a car.

Such as the joie chrome comes with the carrycot and maxi cosi / universal adapters £244
online4baby
or winstanley pram world have it in black for the same price.

Some of the more expensive ones will convert to take a second seat which in the long run may be cheaper if you hope to have 2 kids close together in age. Some may be more durable but at more than twice the price that isn't much of a bargain.

Get one that suits your needs. Apply the 80/20 rule. No pushchair does everything well.

*Is adjustable handle height important?
*Do you want the pushchair to face you as well as out?
*Should it be smallish for public transport?
*Do you need one with big wheels like the out and about nipper 360 because you don't live in a town.
*Is the weight when lifting it into the boot important?
*Will it fit in your boot WITH the shopping etc?

You will need a cosytoes, raincover and car seat adapters some are included in a package others not. They can add a lot to the cost so do check.

+Get a one with decent size basket
+Get one with a good sun canopy.
+get one with removable washable covers

These features are available on the pushchairs that are under the £600 mark.

Do try to get a more expensive one in a sale rather than the very basic models as pushing basic models can be like pushing a shopping trolley

Only £650 original price for a push chair...
Serious question, so please dont bombard me with insults...

We are expecting our first child, so all this is new to me and my wife, but looking around we cannot work out what is the point of the £600/£700/£800 push chairs. Really, what is the difference over a £200 pushchair apart from the name?
I've just had my 4th and for the first time invested in an expensive silver cross travel system. It is much easier to push, feels generally more robust, spare parts are available, and holds up to 25kg in weight. I am generally very careful with my spending but don't regret this purchase 1 bit. I did get it from silver crosses own outlet site though and saved about £200 with last year's colour.

Have you been and had a look at the pushchairs at different price points?

I felt the same as you but once I had tested a few out I could tell which ones were cheaper. Nothing wrong with them, but to me didn't have the same quality.

Plus buy them for £800 and once you are finished with them they're still worth £500, where as a cheaper one will lose most of its value

​You need to be mindful of selling it within a 2 to 3 year window to maximise value as pushchair models that are discontinued or upgraded lose a lot of value.

£500 on a used pushchair without a warranty has a limited market. A lot of people who can afford £500 on a travel system will buy new. Though I guess you only need one buyer

Anyone going that strategy this year should be sure the car seat they get is an I-size one. As they all will be by the time of selling it on. A non Isize one would devalue a travel system that someone is hoping to sell for a lot in a few years time.

Convenience, easier to fold/collapse and quality/craftsmanship.

If you’re not someone who is normally fussy with these things then you probably won’t be able to tell difference between a mothercare one and a more expensive one. Mothercare ones actually seemed fairly good value for money. I was in your position, first child and couldn’t work out what was the difference between them all. We went for the egg purely for the folding ease and ease of clipping in and out the seat. Best advice is pop into mothercare and have a go. I’d steer clear of sub £300-400 though

It's OOS now but for what it's worth, I have this pushchair and it's the best I've come across, so light to control even with one hand, looks good and I can collapse and out away in car without even putting things down on the floor and the pram release is the easiest I've found too! Very highly recommend as on the top of the above, it's a nice looking chair too

Yea we got whole silver cross travel system for £400 as they were discontinuing the colours
As a nanny and now a Mum spending £100's on the first pram is a waste of money, I was given a Bugaboo for free off an old boss which would have cost me over £1000 more than my own car is even worse which is crazy, the size of of it in my car boot drove me mad and having the 2 parts to take apart to fold down drove me mad.
Soon as she was 6 months old I got a city jogger and my only regret is I didn't get this at the start. She's now 2 and we still use it, it folds one handed, super easy to push, doesn't take up my whole boot and the baby car seat could fit on it. I love it so much I've bought the carrycot for when we have another.
There are so many good second hand ones on eBay as lots of mums only use them for a few months then get a pushchair. I think you're better off getting the first one second hand or in the sales then the get a good quality pushchair that you will use the most some even come with lifetime guarantees.
