Excerpt: Bought this pushchair for my youngest daughter but baby not due till October. Our problem was she has a Fiesta and the boot is really small. Thankfully the Maxi-Cosi Elea came to our rescue. It fits in perfectly with even a little room to spare, goes up and down like a dream even for me,and obviously takes our first choice of car seat a Maxi-cosi with isofix fittings. Pity it does not come is some of the more whizzy colours but at least it fits.
Pros: Easily Stowed, Easy To Manoeuvre, Easy to Set Up, Stylish
Excerpt: My baby is 9 weeks old. So far only used baby cacoon and car seat. The instructions for construction aren't brill but was straightforward to put together. Very easy to use now in use. Steers well and more compact when folded than any other I've seen so doesn't take up all of boot. We liked the fact the base can stand in courner of our hall. There's a good sized basket. Off road and on bumpy pavements ok but would be better with suspension, but this would increase price.
Pros: Easily Stowed, Easy To Manoeuvre, Easy to Set Up, Folds Down Small, Seat Flattens For Baby
Excerpt: I bought this with the travel system. I never used the carry cot with it. But it was fab for the early days of slotting the car seat into the frame. When he got bigger the Elea came into it's own with lots of reclining positions so he easily fell asleep it in. For the first year this buggy was fab. We had a dog then and I used it in lots of muddy parks and it was fine. The wheels detach which mean it can be cleaned.
Excerpt: Well my ds is now 12weeks old and we've used it pretty much every day. It copes well with the muddy park terrain and the bumpy pavement. The pushchair park can lie flat and has a sleeping bag insert that has kept ds really cosy and warm. Alon with straps to know he won't fall out. I've also been on the train with it. And this is where my only criticism comes it is on the heavy and big side. So trying to bump it down the steps is not easily done.
