Summary: My son had outgrown the carrycot on our Jane travel system and was not happy to be forward facing in the pushchair for long walks so I needed a cheap parent facing pushchair and opted for the Loola Up as I wanted a well known pram so that I could sell it on easily once my son no longer needs it.
Pros: Can be parent facing or forward facing, My baby is comfortable in it and sleeps well in it, Lie flat option is suitable from birth so you do not need to purchase the carrycot, Can be used as travel system with Maxi Cosi car seat
Cons: The worst thing for me is the front swivel wheels which make the pushchair far too wide. I have found this really awkward in shops and find I keep getting stuck, The pram is too wide and it can be difficult to steer No cupholder There is a window in the hood which lets in too much light and sun. ...
Compact, Flexible, easy to unfold and collapse.....perfect

Summary: I am the father of a loverly bouncing boy....i spent ages looking for a pram as the right one should last 3 years. The Mrs finally settled on the Pilko Pramette from M & P's this was a travel system and in my mind seemed very complicated to change from a pram to a carry cot, i was therefore secretly...
Pros: Fits in to a small boot (Beetle) even with CD changer, Swapping between carry cot and car seat is so simple and the click in and out attachment is easy, easy to manoeuver and even the attachment of the parasol is a doddle to either right or left side and finally easy to collapse and set up in sec...
Cons: Small carry shelf underneath, not easy to attach changing bag to handles, could do with a handle on the side to get in and out of the boot easier rather than just on the top and a reduction in the weight of the chassis would help.
I have found this pram great for facing parents, but that is where it stops!!!

Summary: sorry but would not recommend this pram, I wished I never given my bugaboo away!!!
Pros: lovely for facing parents you can order biger seat belt so will fit a big child or baby free of charge
Cons: very heavey dont not buy if you need a c-section, isn't as compact as you might think(height when folded), wears very quickly I've only had mine for 12mths and its wheels look like they about to fall off!
folds really small, even with the seat in face you mode - but so great for public transport

Summary: Probably a great choice for someone not looking to use public transport with it and wants a reversable pushchair that folds small to store in hallway etc. Mine is loaned from a friend so they seem to last well.
Pros: If you are looking for a pushchair that faces both ways this is a great option as it can fold up with the chair in face you mode - only pushchair I've seen that does this and it even folds umbrella style so it's hardly bigger than a buggy when folded. Would be great for someone who uses it with t...
Cons: It's really heavy to push, especially trying to push it up kerbs, partly the suspention but you really have to put a lot of effort to get the front wheels off the floor. Raincover is very fiddly to attach and it's hard to get into the pram once it's on I don't think the seat lies fully flat. It's...
Summary: A well made pushchair with some excellent features, good if you walk a lot and, (if like me) you like having baby facing you whilst out and about.
Pros: very sturdy pushchair! love the fact baby can either face you or away! nice to push ,not too heavy, really like mine!
Cons: not keen on the 'window' on the hood - would be better if it could be covered up if not required- might be less of a problem when baby older tho. shopping basket is a bit small. quite hard to find accessories for -tho thankfully found a parasol for it.
Summary: Good buy and compact folded so good for smaller cars
Pros: I love that this pushchair can be rearfacing for longer but is still nice and compact when folded. Easy to steer(alot easier than the two handle version) very easy to use, easy to use brakes, nice size seat and hood. I also liked the carseat and windoo carrycot that can be easily clicked onto the...
Cons: Quite heavy to lift in and out of carboot, shopping basket not that easy to get in and doesn't hold much.
I've got the Loola (Loola-Up's predecessor, only difference is the handles - single bar rather than two). It's a fab rear-facing, compact travel-system compatible pushchair that's a dream to steer and collapse and a comfprtable ride for baby.

Summary: The loola is a lovely pushchair. It's not as light weight as some, but it's a dream to steer, is ideal for those with limited space and my baby is very comfortable in it. We love that it's rearfacing so we can interact with our little monster while out and about.
Pros: Rear and forward facing Can be folded with seat in either direction (unlike its competitors) Stand-alone and compact when folded Can form part of a travel system Self-cleaning folding system Easy to collapse Wheel lock on handle rather than down by wheels (very very useful) One-handed recline
Cons: Rain cover fiddly to zip onto hood when caught in a shower Handles don't extend much (not great if you or hubby is over 6ft) No obvious point to hold at front when carrying up steps
Summary: After 3 weeks of use January 2009 the rear wheels turned inwards. This meant that the pushchair could not be pulled backwards at all without the wheels stopping all together as though the brake was engaged. I exchanged it for another frame. Within 4 days the same thing happened.
Pros: Lovely suspension, looks good
Cons: Frame kept bowing causing rear wheels to bend in not allowing buggy to be pulled back.
