Summary: The best pram by far, I've used other peoples prams and seen similar ones in use, none of them compare to this one.
Pros: Excellently made, fantastic for overnight stays, as you don't need to take a carrycot/moses basket/travel cot, just take the stand with you. Car seat clips onto chassis. Raincover and sun shade included. No extra seat unti, carrycot converts into seat unit unlike Mamas & Papas similar version. Huge shopping basket. Front and rear facing. Great range of colours. Using again for my second, with a buggyboard.
Cons: Heavy chassis to lift in and out of car if had caesarean.
Great pram for walking with tinies, not brilliant for portability or for 5-8 month olds.

Summary: They key question, would I buy again? Yes, if I had a winter baby, but... I would rent or borrow a bugaboo for the 5 to 8 month period, and if the (or any) manufacturer is reading this - please try and produce a summer liner for the buggy, and please try and incorporate an integral alternative to the ubiquitous muslin/cloth pegged to the front of prams!
Pros: 1. It's a fabulously sturdy pram which accommodates quite large babies. In car terms, a luxury German car. 2. It wheels very easily. 3. It is really snug so ideal for an autumn-born babe. 4. The pram part has covers which are easily removed for washing. 5. A baby can sleep in it, and it transfers easily to the stand which rocks if you want it to. 6. The hood comes pretty far forward, keeping out the sun pretty well when in pram mode, and altogether in buggy mode. 7. E...
Cons: 1. The downside of the sturdiness is its weight and bulkiness. 2. It was too warm during the summer for our baby. 3. Apparently like most prams, less easy to clean once a buggy. A summerweight liner would be a great boon. 4. You still need a sunshade, like most prams. 5. The biggest problem - its shape is not supportive enough for 5-8 month olds who want to sit up but need support. The bugaboo shape is much better for this.
Excerpt: I loved this system as you get a pram which converts to a pushchair which can forward or rear face(a really important aspect), cosytoes for the pushchair and a stand which allows baby to sleep downstairs and, in my opinion, is more secure and more comfy than a moses basket. The chasis is light and mobile but the brakes could be a little better. The ventura car seat goes onto the chasis easily.
