I bought this pushchair as part of a Travel System, and it worked wonderfully.
However, as a stand-alone pushchair i found it heavy, unwieldy and awkward. I disliked how my son sat in it and didn't feel it offered much comfort.
On the plus side, the shopping bag underneath is fantastically roomy and can hold a lot of shopping before its full.. its also easily accessible even when the seat is fully reclined.Read moreLess

I found this pushchair had everything I needed for my newborn, it was very comfy for her and because she was a winter baby it kept her warm and away from the weather. Although it didn't look very fashionable it had enough storage on it for all those essentials newborns need! plus room to add more if needed. The best thing about this pram was travelling, it was handy on buses because baby didn't need disturbing, just lift the car seat off and then fold the pram.Read moreLess

Buy this buggy! My son is five and I had a Graco Mirage buggy for him and liked it so much that when I had my daughter three years later I went out and bought anothr one. Brilliant.Read moreLess
"Reviewers thought the Mirage on the whole "brilliant value". It's…"
Reviewers thought the Mirage on the whole "brilliant value". It's "lightweight" and "spacious" plus it "folds up easily". "It reclines flat and has a comfy padded seat, so works well from birth". On the downside "you need two hands to fold it up" but it is compatible with a car seat, so for some extra outlay it works as a travel system too, and unlike many it "also works as a buggy for an older child". "It holds a mountain of shopping" and is "really durable" too. Overall: "a great choice if you're on a budget".Read moreLess

Huge shopping basket, folds flat in the boot and easy to steer with one hand. Mine is a hand-me-down, on it's third child and I still can't justify buying a new one!Read moreLess
"I liked this pushchair so much I bought it twice.…"
I liked this pushchair so much I bought it twice. My first one lasted my first two children over a period of four years plus. It's also very affordable. It's attractive price and it's durability was what drove me to choose the same model for my third child who is approaching two and the pushchair has plenty of use still in it. It's useable from birth and has the biggest basket underneath which holds a mountain of shopping. In my opinion, it's the best value pushchair on the market. Why pay more?Read moreLess
"When I first bought this pushchair, I thought it was…"
When I first bought this pushchair, I thought it was great. However, 2 years down the line, my opinion has changed.
1) This has only just started happening, but when I am out with the pushchair, the brake gradually slips down until it is on the wheels - while I am walking! The problem here is that the brake is a simple push-up, push-down bar but there is no lock to hold it in place in either position. Brake-off is in the up position and with no lock to keep it up there, that's why it keeps slipping. Very irritating!
2) The raincover is came with is useless! It is fastened on the bottom with heavy-duty press-studs on an elastic ring. Unfortunately, they are so strong that they are almost impossible to open once closed. My husband ripped one off, trying to open the raincover so he could get to our screaming infant. And the other one, I broke. I was trying to open it when the elastic just tore off - leaving the press-studs attached to each other!
2)I can't see how you can remove the material that goes over the hood, in order to wash it. It has got very dirty and looks horrible. I am not sure it is even possible because the material is very large and is attached to a large plastic sheet at the back - you can't put plastic in a washing machine. I just keep surface-cleaning it, but it is difficult.
4) The handle bar is quite bulky and sticks out a lot on the bus.
5)The arm straps are rubbish! When my daughter was tiny and I put her in with the seat reclined, the arm straps were fine. Now she is 2, there's no way she would lie in it, so with the seat in sitting position, the arm straps are too big. She just slips her arms out of them. I have adjusted them so they are at their tightest but they are still way too loose.
5) In the sitting position, the seat is not upright enough. It still slopes back at a bit of an angle. I believe this is bad for posture, and certainly it is bad for an inquisitive baby who is always leaning forward so she can see the world!Read moreLess

"Points to watch for: with wheels in unlocked mode, there…"
Points to watch for: with wheels in unlocked mode, there is a tendency for potholes to cause the wheels to spin out, and kerbs are best tackled with wheels in locked position. Also, repeated lifting of front wheels creates a lot of play at the folding point. And the suspension is rubbish on gravelly paths. Low basket handy for shopping but is easily muddied.Read moreLess
