Excerpt: When I found out that we were expecting our first child the search begun for that perfect set of wheels. We looked at many went round all the shops and just couldn't decide. So decided to look at reviews on here and other places and found people loving the Pliko.. We had not actually seen this one in the shop as at the time our mama and papa's was having a refurbishment. When we eventually saw it in 'real life' we instantly fell in love.
Excerpt: We we've given the Mama's & Papa's Pilko Pramette as a spare pushchair from a friend. As it had also been a spare for her it was like brand new, and she offered it us free as she said if we could work it, it was ours. She had spent nearly £200 on the Pilko with a matching car seat/baby carrier and due to the awkwardness of the Pilko always used her other travel system, and we could see why.
Durable, simple, everything you want in a travel system

Excerpt: I had 2 models of this pram for 2 of my sons - one boston check, one polka dot. (Only reason bought again was because baby was a surprise just after I'd got rid of all my baby equipment) So I can speak from experience of using this model for around 7-8 years and have not a single complaint about it!
Not as long lasting for toddlers due to the size and weight of the pramette

Excerpt: I found on the new design (city scape, 2012) only half of the pram base is padded - the other half has a hard plastic base that would not be comfortable at all. Due to this the padded pram sheets are a requirement, but at £30 for 2, they do not come cheaply. Once in pram mode (with the sheets) the pramette provides a warm, snug and comfortable space for baby although the separate handles mean 2 hands are needed at all times to steer the pram.
Excerpt: Hello, this is the worst pram i've come across (kept less than a week) I urge you not to buy this for the following reasons. It really is very bulky when folded, acceptable yes if the product excels in other criteria unfortunately it really does not and is top of my worst buys ever. The handles don't fill the main frame slots -shoddy workmanship and as a result the handles rattle about it feels rickety as the handles wobble making you have to use more gripping power than...
Excerpt: I used this pram from birth with my child, It was ok to push, but a bit tricky every time you get to a curb and have to stop to try and get it up, I think this was due to the weight of the pramette, but it is a pram and pushchair so i expected it to be a little heavier than the normal pushchair. Its folds up but i had a bit of trouble getting use to how hard you had to pull the leaver at first, but I did get use to it.
Still on sale, but really outdated by today's standards

Excerpt: Around 6 years ago, 'pramettes' - or 2-in-1 pram/pushchairs - were all the rage. The Mamas and Papas Pliko pramette and the Silver Cross 3d were best sellers, and it was near impossible to walk up the high street of any place in the UK without bumping into several of them. So why was the pramette so popular?
Excerpt: I had this pramette for my first son when he was born back in 2008 and continued using it as a buggy until he was 17 months and my second son was born, then I obviously had to move over to a double buggy but there was still plenty of life left in this and I sold it on to another mum. I had bought it secondhand myself, so as you can see the pramette lasted well with a lot of use. It was still in great condition by the time I finished with it, despite using it every day.
Excerpt: I fell in love with the mamas and papas pliko when I was expecting my first child. After looking up some reviews and taking it for a test drive around the shop. I bought it. For personal reasons I ended up giving this pram to my mother to use as a spare for my second child. I have used it a quite a few times and I must say it did not live up to its expectations.
An average pram that turns into a pushchair, quite expensive & some downsides

Excerpt: When we had out first baby, we chose this pramette because it turns from a flat pram into a pushchair, so I thought it was good value for money. I paid £250 for this pramette, which seemed quite reasonable. The first downside is that it doesn't come assembled, so it required a bit of effort trying to work out how to put it together. I suppose the upside of this is you can be sure everything is tightened and secure for putting your little darling in.
