getting it off and on buses is very difficulty with being narrow at the front and wider at the bacK.Read moreLess
"It works well for walks in the park but the…"
It works well for walks in the park but the front wheel is fixed so very difficult to maneuver in town. It's a two handed fold which is impossible to do holding a baby and I wish there were more positions.It does go properly flat which is good for a newborn although the seat was very narrow in the upright position. I'm glad I only got it cheaply second hand.Read moreLess

"We bought a Graco 3 wheeler over 4 years ago.…"
We bought a Graco 3 wheeler over 4 years ago. Think it's the expedition - only used it for about a year cos the rear wheels kept falling off. Found it great on uneven ground. Bulky to store. I'm now using it with my four month baby. I replaced the rear axle (easy to do as they just unclip) so the rear wheels don't fall off any more! I've found it sturdy and good on the beach etc but the fixed front wheel is a real pain in town. The harness isn't a good fit for a newborn and I need a halfway position for the seat which it doesn't have. My baby doesn't like lying flat when awake and tries to sit up and the seated position doesn't give her any support. The way the car seat clips onto the chassis on top of the pram is handy because you don't need to remove the pram first. However I've lost the clip that attatches the car seat on so I can't do that at the moment and can't get a replacement clip because the pram is no longer made. We bought the travel system in
the first place because it was value for money -Read moreLess
"Not very impressed overall. It's not very good when walking…"
Not very impressed overall. It's not very good when walking over rough ground as it's not very stable due to the light weight. it's also hard to push over smooth surfaces due to not having a swivel wheel. I have to keep checking the front removable wheel is tight as a couple of times it has come off while i've been using it!
was not happy with the build quality - wheels rusted quickly, harness buckle snapped. Not the most comfortable of seats either - very thin and not well padded and too upright. Only two seat positions is limiting. My toddler can easily get his arms out of the staps too as they do not tighten up enough, which is also a problem using it for a baby, as they are not able to be secured that well.
The only good points were: easy of folding and setting up, large shopping basket,no worries about punctures, easy to remove wheels and it fit in my tiny car boot.Read moreLess
"Lovely smart three wheeler with massive shopping basket - you…"
Lovely smart three wheeler with massive shopping basket - you can use it at a half way position too if you mess with the straps and sdjust the angle, although it took ma a while to find this out. Even worked for my lo when in hip spica. Just hard to fit in my Fiesta - but OK with the quick release wheels off. Just make sure you click them back on again properly!Read moreLess
"A low budget option that's "stylish", "easy to push" and…"
A low budget option that's "stylish", "easy to push" and "simple to fold". The shopping basket is "voluminous and sturdy". It's also "pretty light" and "great value". The only problem is that for a new baby the choice of two seat positions is probably not enough, plus "the suspension isn't as smooth as some". As one reviewer put it: "the only choice is lie-flat or upright and very often my baby would be most comfortable somewhere in between". A good choice for later on though or if you're going to use the sling a lot at the beginning.Read moreLess

Great for an older child as it's very sturdy and lokks like a 'grown up pushchair!' fantastically huge shopping basket too.Read moreLess

The best thing is that it absorbs a lot of the bumps in the road, & the worst thing is the over the shoulder strap which my son refuses to put on as he likes to sit forward now he can!Read moreLess

Excellent buggy. Major drawback is the number of lieback positions - siting bolt upright or lying flat are the only options. Lovely to push.Read moreLess
"It's a good pushchair with little extras like side "saddlebags"…"
It's a good pushchair with little extras like side "saddlebags" for baby bottle/changing kit, but lack of suspension/hard tyres makes vibrations bad for child when offroad. We used it with travel system which made it great when baby small.Read moreLess
"We have been so pleased with this pushchair. I walk…"
We have been so pleased with this pushchair. I walk a lot and we've been over all types of terrain in very wet weather with no problem at all and because the tyres are solid no punctures either. We had the travel system version so she was in the car seat part until she could sit comfortably and so the limited number of seating positions have been fine. Excellent value for money and light enough that we haven't felt the need to buy a lighter weight stroller and she is nearly 2 now - so great longevity. Can't think of anything bad to say about it really!Read moreLess

Use with the Autobaby car seat - COULDN'T DO WITHOUT IT!!, Looks good, easy to fold, bit bulky when storing in boot though it is possible to take of the huge wheels easily-great product only disavantage is that the wheels don't turn/swivel so not as easy to turn!Read moreLess
"everything is great. the only thing that lets it down…"
everything is great. the only thing that lets it down is that it hasnt got swivel wheels. so it distubes my baby in the car seat when I turn.Read moreLess

Looks good (bought in black) nice to handle once you get used to only three wheels. Not enough seat positions - baby not too comfortable - either upright or right back.Read moreLess
"We've used this from birth, the lie flat position worked…"
We've used this from birth, the lie flat position worked fine for DS and with the addition of a head support from our carseat he was comfy sitting up from 3/4 months. The fixed front wheel is a bit awkward and i find myself lifting it to turn corners sometimes, however this gives it great stability, none of that supermarket trolley wheels syndrome you get with swivel 4 wheelers. My only major gripe is its portability, its impossible to fit in the boot of any 'small' car, ie a Ka, Micra or Clio so check before you buy. However it does fold up easily and securly. Its lasted us 20 months of very heavy usage so far and only a bit scuffed. Very good value as bought end of line stock for ?79. If you just want one buggy to get you through from birth to 2/3 then buy this one and save yourself the extra ?200 the whizzier models cost!Read moreLess
