Ok dads, what pushchair have you got and would you recommend it?
I not, what would you recommend and why?

After four years at Mothercare, I swear by bugaboo. I owned an oyster before but if I want a pushchair that makes life easier not harder it’s a bugaboo. Sadly they ain’t cheap.

Wife and I are thinking of getting the Mamas&Papas Ocarro, anyone have any opinions on it? Wife’s done most of the research and says it gets good enough reviews.

We have 2, heavy duty is the Joie Chrome dlx. Basic but good we went for it due to the easy travel system compatibility with the Joie igemm car seat. There are far better buggies about but this suited our needs.
More recently we got the ultra compact poxkit+ which folds tiny and is very light. This is primarily to have in the Car as the Joie is very large. As expected very light and a bit flimsy but no complaints so far.

We’ve got the Jane Matrix Trider system. We were looking for a 3 wheeler that was fairly robust. The matrix also offered complete system with lie flat car seat, which was big selling point.
It’s probably bulkier and heavier than some on the market but not obscenely. Very easy to use and unfold, just click and go.
Wouldn’t recommend if you’re looking to use it for hopping on and off busses or public transport. But if you’re after a solid bit of kit that’ll last through the family I think it’s great.
Goes off road easily if you’re that way inclined, smooth and comfortable to push.
Can be bulky even when taken apart but never been too much of an issue if you’re packing in the boot with the bits off for a trip.
• lie flat car seat (iSo fix)
• very robust
• will take a beating
• 3 wheels
• easy to manoeuvre & use
• not much under buggy space
• pushchair attachment can be a little too laid back
• doesn’t fold down well for public transport
For us it’s been perfect,
The whole system clocks in around 500 if you can find a deal on. without the iso base which set us back another 120
It’s lasted 3 years of abuse and will get us through the next one without issue I reckon

For my twins we swear by a bugaboo donkey, it gets through all doors, even though it’s a side by side, and folds down small enough to go into a hatchback. Would highly reccomend.

We have 2 for our 2 yr old one which we use out and about (if she’ll go in it) which is a mama and papas one. Find it good but it is heavy but folds up straight like most strollers do. But my favourite one is a cheap hauck one I got from Aldi one time that we use for holidays. It folds in half on itself and pretty flat as well so it’s compact and great to put in a foot well of a car or on top of the pile of luggage in the boot.

Me and the wife have just bought a cosatto woosh and found it great, really good build quality nice to push round too. It folds down easily and to a good compact size.

Baby Trend Nexton Travel System, Coral Floral Reviews has both sides about the performance. On one side some parents give positive reviews and some give negative reviews. There are many good aspects about Baby Trend Nexton Travel System, Coral Floral. One of the great thing which none of other stroller gives is the covered parent tray which can hold two cups. Along with this stroller, you can move it easily whenever and wherever you want. You can easily place it inside the car as it has an infant car seat. Moreover, you can also carry this stroller for jogging or when you go for walk. This stroller has a high chair for the comfy of children or it can be the issue for some. Here along with this stroller, it has been easier for parents to take care of their children.
