Do not buy it.......it has broken in more than one place on more than one occasion.

Summary: The cross bar under the pram that holds the pram together has snapped twins now on both sides. The first time was after only after 8 months of use and I had to persuade silver cross to repair it. Its heavy, the basket is deep but awkward to get things into. The rain cover has completely ripped and my daughter hates it because it steams up and she cant see.
Pros: The carry cot was very cosy and comfortable. The seat lies completely flat and is comfortable....my daughter asks to go into it to sleep. The hood comes down quite far keeping the elements out.
Cons: As I said above very wobbly...not very sturdy. Has broken on more than one occasion. Not good value for money which is something you expect when you see the name Silvercross. You cant push this pram with one hand......which is annoying when you have another child with you.
Summary: Nice little pram, strong chassis, adjustable handles, easy to steer, good size shopping basket. Pushchair lies flat so suitable from birth, comfortable cosy toes included. I currently use this for my baby and have had no problems with it, although the pram liner bit is quite small, snug for a newborn but as the baby grows I can't see there being much room. Easy to fold and unfold and change from pram to pushchair and vice versa.
Pros: Nice fabric, easy to steer, good size shopping basket, easy to fold and unfold and easy to change into pushchair, snug comfortable pram liner for a newborn. Pushchair lies back flat, suitable for a newborn.
Cons: Pram liner is quite small, fine for a newborn but maybe not so suitable as baby grows. Sturdy frame but quite heavy.
Summary: Easy to use as a travel system, although the car seat is a bit heavy. Pram conversion is easy to fit, although I found that my daughter had out grown it way before she could sit and as the pushchair part wasn't parent facing I wasn't keen on having her in there so I used the travel system so she was facing me! Great value as no hidden extras to buy, comes with cosy toes, rain cover and pram bag. I found this pushchair easy to put up and I don't think it is bulky at all.
Pros: Easy to set up Comfortable for baby in all forms Good value for money Sturdy Practical
Cons: Car seat is heavy Basket is tricky to access Pram is a little small, but as the pushchair does lay flat baby can go in there from birth...
Summary: ive been using my 3d vogue for 9 weeks now and other than a few niggles im so pleased with my choice. all in all excellent value for money and ive had loads of compliments
Pros: newborn soft carrycot was very safe and secure, my son was comfy in it even after having an operation on his tummy. baby is well protected by all the covers/cosy toes etc. easy to change from pram to pushchair to travel system and love the secure fit of the car seat onto the pram. easy to fold down and lovely to push/steer. 3 year warrenty :)
Cons: quite heavy when baby is in, car seat is very heavy! also bag only has one pocket (im now using the free one from boots!) sometimes sticks when unfolding and needs a good shake! heavy and big when folded, its a struggle to fit it in some car boots. carry cot is a bit snug, my son is 9weeks and with a winter coat on he is squashed so hes mostly using it as a pushchair now
pushchair is too heavy and the car seat is too big. could only use the pram for 3 months.

Summary: looks great and is very comfortable for baby but wouldnt recommend this to anyone as it is too heavy and hard to push.it doesnt fold down easily at all and difficult getting it in and out of the car. beautiful product but not practical enough for me.
Pros: looks gorgeous and my son was very comfortable in the pram and pushchair. fabric is amazing and loved the cosy toes/foot muff.
Cons: so heavy in every stage. which makes it extremely hard to push, seems to have a mind of its own so you have to hold on realy tight when turning corners. the car seat was so big i had to return it so i couldnt use it as a travel system. the liner of the pram was so small that after a few weeks i had to take it out and use blankets to prop my baby up instead (he was only 6lb 4oz when born so he wasnt big)i bought this because i loved the parent facing pram and the trave...
Summary: I brought this pram because my brother had just had a daughter and him and his girlfriend loved it (at first) I loved it too, up until I was given the Quinny Buzz pushchair which although has more cons I beleive is a far better pram. The fact that this pram is so heavy makes it hard to go up and downstairs with no help. Once shopping bags are on it its even heavier and becomes harder to steer.
Pros: - Very comfy with good quality materials in it - Warm for my son in the winter - A nice sized basket at the bottem - A rain cover that fits if you are using the lay flat attachment for new borns and the pram part - A detachable hood - Extendable handles - A fair sized changing bag with a travel changing mat to match inside - A nice variety of colours and designs - Breaks on the front two wheels
Cons: - Far to heavy and thats without a baby/child in it - Quite bulky - Not very simple to open and close - Takes up a lot of space in boots of cars - Although the handles are extendable they dont extended much
Summary: I got the silver cross 3D pram travel system for my first son. At first I loved it. Using the pram was great but he wasn't in it for long and then I only tended to use the car seat on top of the pushchair. Once he was big enough to go into the pushchair I found it really difficult to push around especially as he got heavier and bigger.
