I chose to have the black one which JL had. When she showed me the swatch book they had numerous choices so I'm guessing grey can order the full range. Odd that you can't online!

Had poor customer service from them which surprised me though. We were really munched about with the pram and the car seat rain cover. We rang to cancel the car seat cover in end cos baba had arrived and was 2 week old and I wanted to get out in the fresh. Car seat cover still fad g arrived (ordered 8 weeks earlier) so I found one in a local baby supplies shop. Called JL to cancel before buying other one. Went to shop, bought other one and used it.
Next day, guess what turns up from JL!

Another Uppababy fan - I got mine from kiddicare because they do the full range of colours (rather than the 4 options from John Lewis online) and next day delivery. However, you may be able to get full range if you buy in store - I was in a rush though because my original retailer went into liquidation before I was able to pick it up, and had 5 days to find a replacement supplier!

Yeah lots of UPPAbaby fans! Seems I made 1 good choice then!

I am another uppababy fan. They sell them (and others) in Bump Start just outside Milton Keynes if you're ever in that neck of the woods - independent store and customer service every bit as good as JL.

Look on the beegees website (baby shop in Bedford). Uppababy is £50 cheaper on there, I plan on getting it in JL for the cheaper price, whilst still getting their brill customer service!

Seriously look at the Uppababy Vista travel system - I cannot fault it.

I second the John Lewis advice, had a really helpful 'nursery consultation' with them where they brought my shortlisted prams out to the car to see if they would fit, and is just much easier to see them in person than try to wade through reviews online.

Having said that, I also recommend signing up to Which for the £1 month's trial, as then you get access to all the pram reviews and videos which are helpful. Just don't forget to cancel the trial in time or you'll get charged about £12 a month afterwards!

The zezu looks quite nice smile no idea what the reviews are though

I have a mychild pixels. Very nice. Front and mum facing. Nice and cosy. Nice basket, very easy to fold and take seat unit off.

John Lewis will price match so go and get your £30 lol

Thanks, will look into that one. Have posted in pushchairs so just waiting to here back.

Hi, I only have experience of one pram which is the Uppababy Vista and I absolutely love it. It came as a package with the carrycot, seat, maxi cosi adapters and all covers and then i bought the maxi cosi car seat with it.
i was told by another mum to go try them all out at John Lewis to decide which one i wanted and then to have a look around for the best price for the one i chose. This was good advice. one of the nursery experts showed me anything i wanted to see on them - she folded and unfolded them as much as i wanted and answered any questions i had.

I bought mine from JL in the end as it was the best price I could find. Well I found it 30 quid cheaper on a website i'd never heard of so thought 30 quid wasn't really worth quibbling about. Along with the fact that I thought if I bought it in a shop and something went wrong with it, i'd have somewhere to take it back to rather than have to send it off somewhere.

Have a look on pushchairs topic, there'll be some good advice there i'm sure!

the ladies on the pushchair section are very helpful! i have asked many questions on there and always for good answers.

Ive not examined the car seat in great detail to be honest which is odd for me as Im really strict on car seats and my children are in extended rear facing seats.

It wasnt the best pram to be honest. A bit bulky. Def post on pushchairs topic.

stacey212528 Thu 24-Jan-13 09:41:48

Its just that the car seat looks quite flimsy when it clips on to the pram? And is the harness underneath the lining all the time? That sounds uncomfortable. Thanks pascha! (:

lagoonhaze Thu 24-Jan-13 09:25:38

Best friend has it what do you want to know?

Do know the seat wont fit in supermarket car seat holders do to travel system adaptors being inbuilt on car seat.

Pascha Thu 24-Jan-13 09:22:27

No idea about that pram, but if you post in the pushchair section there are a few very knowledgable ladies floating about who can give you lots of help here

stacey212528 Thu 24-Jan-13 09:15:20

Or could anyone recommend a decent priced 2in1?

stacey212528 Thu 24-Jan-13 09:07:00

I know this is probably the wrong place to put this thread, but I couldn't see where else it would fit. Has anyone got or had the obaby zezu 2in1 pramette? Just that I have a few questions that the reviews haven't answered. Probably ridiculous first time mum questions, but questions all the same. Thanks (:
