Felt very like the McLaren Sport Buggy for £110 - especially as just as lightweight. Don't know much about their own brand buggies but feels sturdy enough and seems to have a similar collapsing mechanism. Folds down very small as well.

we had a mamas and papas buggy and had a nightmare with it - the wheel fell off in the middle of the road honest! we took it back and had to get it repaired twice! in the end we bought a mclaren and had no trouble since - had it for over a year, not trying to rain on the parade but out of all the buggies i have purchased over the years (many) that was the only one we had any trouble with.:)

I bought a buggy from the m&p store and it started rusting, they insisted on sending it away for 2 weeks to repair it even though it was only a week or two old. After much complaining I got a refund but be warned their aftersales is bad.

Saying that, this looks like a good buggy, most of the ones like this work very similarly and generally get very good reviews (think the mamu one was voted the best buggy), so have some heat!

I remember a couple of years back when my mum was running her own baby shop selling pushchairs and stuff, she was knocking mclaren buggy's out at just under £30:thumbsup:

The buggy we got was a 'designer' model called a ziko, it cost over £100 and was awful, i have had mothercare £30 buggies that were better, get a mclaren you cant go wrong, our buggies get hammered and the mclaren stands up to the test:thumbsup:

Yea they look nice but don't stand up to much abuse, I had two mamas and papas buggies, an Aria (because I have a KA and very few travel systems fit in my boot), and one like this one but it had a white chassy (part of their designer looking 'pure' range). Neither one of them lasted that well so I don't think I would buy one from their again even if they do look nice. I've got a Quinny Zapp now, which I have to admit is not my ideal buggy but fits in my stupidly small boot (with room for shopping) and is a bit more sturdier and generally well-built. Anyway, I've said I'm not having anymore kids until I can comfortably afford a bugaboo.... and a car with a boot that it fits in.

We've had an Aria for 11mths and it's been excellent. I bet it's been pushed upwards of 200 mile in that time! thats no exaggeration. My good lady insists on walking everywhere with it! Tyres are quite worn now and the rain cover is ripped but it's been faultless with daily use.

lol, I'm still mentally scarred by the sleep deprivation, my son was not an 'easy baby' puked up about 30 times per day (not exaggerating either). I see people with newborns and celebrate my new found independence lol.

Mine is destroyed, however when I bought it I had the Primo Viaggio SIP carseat which was very heavy (I think the new version is much lighter), and I think it was just too heavy for the buggy. I also completely abused it.

Would never buy M & P stuff again. Very poor quality, and very overpriced. My youngest fell out of his Pliko Pramette due to faulty straps - he was left with a black eye. M & P did give us our money back but only after having to shout in the shop - and it was a "good will" gesture apparently. When we were in the shop there were two other customers also bringing puschairs back with complaints about them. One lady told us that they had replaced hers 3 times so far and that she just wanted her money back now as it was obviously a design fault.

Im afraid to say the doom-mongers were right!
After just under a month, the wheels would no longer swivel properly (after a muddy walk) and then trying to get to the shops with it was like steering a stubbon goat.

Eventually took it back and they did refund it (thank god) so for an extra £20 we now have a McLaren.

We also have had so many problems with our Kato, it is the worst thing we have ever bought! I'm really not happy

gutted I missed this :-(
