Summary: Bought this system as had one previously, and found the in car base a huge help. So this disappointed immediately, then when basket broke, i wished id bought something different. I did like the fact that you could turn it into a mini pram, however the canopy does have big gaps down the side, so wasn't sure if my son was warm enough or could feel breeze through gaps. Had forgotten how heavy and bulky it was, especially trying to get it in and out of car boot.
Pros: pushchair is comfortable, and i purchased the carrycot extra, which was great for walking about with a newborn. car seat is large and comfortable. car seat easy to get in and out of pushchair.
Cons: Car Seat base is not compatible with my car. A FORD FOCUS!! when car seat is inserted into base, the car seat is very upright. my newborn sons head fell forward out of head support when putting car seat in base on way from hospital, 4 month later and still unable to use it!! Pushchair is very large, and heavy, fills the boot of my focus, with very little room for anything else. Shopping Basket on bottom broke, 1st day of using it. Is too heavy and bulky to use one han...

Summary: It is a stylish, purpose serving pushchair with a easy to carry car seat which transfers easily from pushchair to car. Pushchair is easy to push, put up and fold down. Not as heavy as graco quattro tour deluxe as the sport has an aluminium frame, it is nicely padded with head support perfect for newborn and can be rear facing with soft carry cot which has to be purchased separatly for around £30-£40.
Pros: Easy to push on any terrain~ Flip over 2 position hood canopy so you can have baby Forward or rear facing with soft carry cot which is perfect for newborn so you can see little one~ easy to clean machine washable covers on pushchair and car seat~ easy to fold and put back up~ easy to transfer car seat from pushchair to car~ Nice size easy access drop down shopping basket which is wipe clean~ Adjustable calf support and foot rest~ Parent tray~ Head support cushion in p...
Cons: Although tyres are puncture proof rubber they do not have any tread on them~ With the frame being curved at the front although looks stylish the foot rest is abit on the small size unlike the graco quattro tour deluxe so if your toddler has big feet and long legs it will be abit uncomfortable~ You have to buy the soft carry cot separately~
Summary: We are first time parents and I fell in love with this when I first saw it, and it hasn't dissapointed. I don't drive so walk everywhere and it has been well used but still feels good as new to push. Its really useful to be able to attach the car seat incase I get a lift, but our little one comfortable either way! As he grew he loved being able to sit up and play with his toys watching the world go by!!
Pros: Sturdy and durable. A great price as we bought the complete package. Easy to fold and put up one handed evenn while holding child! The car seat is reallyy easy to transfer and fit to the pram if baby is sleeping, or can very comfortably lie flat and raise through sveral stages a sbaby grows. Love the parent cup holder and clock, really useful. The drinks tray for the child was also great as we used it for toys and it kept him entertained. Sturdy wheels were great over...
Cons: Still quite large when folded, only just fits in our fiesta boot! we forgot to check before we bought! Nothing else bad I can say
Summary: Am very pleased with this travel system. It's good value for money and I'm now on second child and have not swapped to a Maclaren-style umbrella fold because this pram is so much more secure/comfier for a child I feel. It is bulky, but you can't have everything and luckily I drive an estate, so the size isn't an issue.
Pros: One-click group 0 carseat clicks in and out of the pram and in-car base - so very easy to move about a sleeping baby. Carseat has a snug shape for baby to sleep comfortably in. Includes raincover, cosy toes, large shopping basket, upright to full recline pram - so perfect from newborn. Has cupholder/indents on child and parent tray areas which are handy at snack time. Because of the size of it an older/taller child doesn't 'look too big' for a pram when riding in it. ...
Cons: Not easy to clean because there are many nooks and crannies. Quite large/bulky and fairly wide. Heavy because it's big. Need a large car boot to keep it in. The weight and size make one-handed unfolding unlikely. Because the fold mechanism is in the centre of the 'push bar', it's not easy to steer straight with one hand.
