Summary: i would recommend if you have the space, the build is good and has been designed with quickness in mind.
Pros: the ways in which it can be converted from pram to push chair to moses basket, brilliantly easy to transform from one to the other, a lot of thought has gone into the transformations. is easy to use. has quick release wheels so no nuts and bolts to undo, just pull the ring and off they come.
Cons: bulky but your baby does get space as a benefit, you need space to store it, and it takes up a lot of space weather folded up or not. all four wheels are fixed. it can also be a bit pricey but you do get what you pay for.
Excellent if you walk a lot, but not so good for cars or public transport.

Summary: Excellent for walking, but not so good for transporting.
Pros: There is so much to the travel system. You get the chassis and the stand for indoors, the carrycot with liner, mattress and apron, which also converts to a pushchair, for which you get a cosy toes. It will attach to the stand in pushchair mode to use as a chair indoors. You also get a matching changing bag. The car seat attaches to both the chassis and the stand. When we bought it we had to buy a climate pack separately (raincover and sun canopy) but now the raincover...
Cons: Very large, you need somewhere to store the chassis indoors (or a garage). Have to remove carrycot/seat to fold the chassis. Won't fit in small cars and some bus drivers didn't seem happy at having to transport such a large pram. OK on the train as long as it wasn't rush hour. We bought a lightweight lie flat buggy (Silver Cross Pop) to complement the Sleepover for journeys where it wasn't practical, although this was an extra expense.
Summary: I love it. So much so that im keeping it. I have the Marina (navy and beige). Was a few pennies but i think was well worth it as i walk everywhere and used it everyday. The sleepover stand was so handy. I used to have it set up in the living room and would just transfer the carrycot from chassis to stand. I came with stand, bag, cosytoes, apron, inserts to convert, bumper bar, huge wheels........the list goes on.
Pros: Chassis, although big, is extremely lovely to walk with. Stand allows for you to keep baby in 'carrycot' when indoors. Carrycot converts into seating unit so no need for separate seat or carrycot as its all in one. Huge shopping basket underneath. Nice and high seating so baby can see much more. Perfect, if like me, you walk everywhere.
Cons: Price Size, is very big and dont even try and put it in a car! Had to buy a 'Climate Pack' i.e runcover and suncanopy, separate, which i think should have been included.
