My husbands mid life crisis has resulted in him purchasing his longed for Porsche carrera... Which is fine but he didn't give much thought into where the buggy can go smile) we have a heavy duty 3 wheeler & last week took DD out in the car & took our sling but we need to get a more permanent solution. My SIL has just got the baby zen which folds so small it can go as hand luggage but its soooo expensive ! Any ideas gratefully received please

What about the quinny zapp xtra? Supposedly better than the normal Zapp. My friend has one for her mini and it folds pretty small. I had a Zia and hated it but it does fold fairly well.

I second the petit star zia comment, that fits.

We had a Carrera when DS was small, we bought a Petite Star Zia, that fits. However be warned that once it's in that's it. No room for shopping, luggage, handbag, anything!

maxi cosi Noa, its tiny folded. I agree that you should be able to buy anything you like if your DH has just bought a Porsche!

If you can afford a Porsche then you can afford a YoYo!
End of!!

Just as a random fact, apparently the Maxi Cosi Streety was made because their boss wanted a pushchair to fit in the boot of his Porsche Boxster - but TBH I wouldnt be recommending one!

I think the Micralite would be too long for the boot.

My DSis had your exact same "problem" grin bad they fitted a Quinny Zapp in a Porsche. Not sure how much she'd rate it as a pram.

When your baby is just a tiny bit older I'd splash out on a yoyo. Tell your DH it's less than the cost of a tyre!

Oh just saw age of your DD. our maxi cosi baby car seat fits on the Quinny frame. V useful in that format! That frame on its own would seriously fit under your own feet in the front seat. I'd get that and use a la travel system while she's tiny

You can buy a porsche but not a YoYo? hmm

TalkativeJim Mon 01-Jul-13 10:20:22

We've got a Quinny zapp which we got on gumtree for £30 because it folded small enough to go as hand luggage. Teeny tiny. But crap-poor DD was bolt upright, no recline, as soon as they fall asleep it's cricked necks a go-go.

You can't fit a yoyo in a Porsche? Blimey! We can fit a penguin AND a wagon wheel in our Saab, much more practical car.

chocolatemartini Mon 01-Jul-13 10:02:29

grin at this thread. If he can have a Porsche you can surely have a yoyo?

Not sure why you're worrying about the price of buggy when you have several children and can afford a Porsche, you can't be hard up. I would just but the small buggy or put it on a roof rack.

You can get car seats in a Porsche. They sell their own if your ones don't fit.

Surely any umbrella fold buggy will fit - I thought the boots were big enough for a set of golf clubs.

The Porsche will mean that the OP can do less ferrying of the children - mine would so much rather travel in a Porsche (which I don't like driving) that they badger daddy to run them about rather than me!

Queenie68 Mon 01-Jul-13 09:04:11

We have 5 children - 4 of which are at school smile

CrazyOldCatLady Mon 01-Jul-13 09:02:44

You have a 7 seater for three of you? You're not helping yourself here, you know grin

Queenie68 Mon 01-Jul-13 08:45:03

Ok...ok...I knew I was setting myself up for ridicule smile) yes we have a 7 seater family car but on his day off if we want to go out just the 3 of us... Was just wondering.... Btw DD is 16 wks & her carseat from the 3in1 system fits fine behind passenger seat. Thanks for the tips will check them out.

ZadokTheBeast Mon 01-Jul-13 00:08:07

If the child is young enough to need a buggy surely they also need a car seat?

Buggy that fits in a Porsche ....gringringringrin only on mumsnet could you have a thread title like this.

Alibabaandthe40nappies Sun 30-Jun-13 23:55:37

Do you not have another car?

A child fits in a Porsche, but not the childs car seat..... My friend has a Porsche (and a large family BMW), the kids can fit in the back fine, now the youngest is not in a car seat any more.

Is this the stealth boast thread of the year?

I need a buggy which our nanny can transfer from yacht to billion dollar car without needing help from us superior beings wink grin
