Summary: I really like the look of the Phil & Teds Vibe, and it is incredibly lightweight and easy to manoeuvre. I use it with a buggy board which works well. There are a number of things that could be improved to make it much easier to use.
Pros: Good looking Easy to clean Very lightweight yet robust
Cons: Small seat Short straps - we bought the extensions Short handles The front wheels don't lock
Summary: This stroller is great for the mall. it is nice to clip in a car seat, but just used for that save the money and buy another car seat chassis for 50$. The toddler seat is basic but my baby enjoys it. I wish it reclined further and had a foot rest for a kid under the age of 18 m.
Pros: Easily Stowed, Easy to Set Up, Easy To Steer, Lightweight, Sturdy
Summary: I bought this stroller because of the design and the versatility of it. Loved the fact that it could be used with the newborn as a bassinet all the way up to toddler.

Excerpt: I LOVED the look of this one, very lightweight, easy to fold, great for public transport... or so i thought. Well, 19 weeks in, i hate the thing. After 6 weeks, it became very hard to get the break off. The right hand wheel kept getting stuck and toggling with the break wire did nothing.

I've contacted Phil & Teds directly and they told me they required the receipt (which I lost when we moved house), so I contacted Kiddicare,...
Summary: This stroller was a bit pricey for what we are using it for. An umbrella style stroller. It's sleek and looks good. The functionality is easy as there are only 2 reclines. Doesn't go down all the way back. Need two hands to bring the seat down. This stroller is great on paved ground.

Excerpt: Think the poor reviews are because it hasn't got much staying power as babies get bigger. For me this is not an issue as I am using it with the adaptors to make it parent facing for a tiny. It was OK for a normal sized 2 year old too before independence took over.
