"I got this for when my 8 year old was…"
I got this for when my 8 year old was born and it has been a very handy,sturdy and comfortable pushchair. When i used to take it to the shops it had great suspension for going over those dreaded bumps. Yes, it is quite big and isn't as easy to put in the car as my new one but was okay as i usually used to just walk to the shops. The shopping basket was big and roomy ( big enough for 4+ big bags) and the changing bag also very roomy.Read moreLess

"Best pram on the market, by far. Ihave five children…"
Best pram on the market, by far. Ihave five children and must have pushed mearly everyone available over the years. Had a couple of Teutonias, a double threewheeler, a bebe confort, a gesslein a mamas and papas and countless buggys. The Emmaljunga is the one I would not give back. I bought it second hand on ebay. My seven months old still fits in the carry cot and should get another couple of months out of it as it is much roomier than any other one. There is a little backrest under the matress, so she can sit up. The carry cot is really good quality and sturdy (most other pram tops are plastic and some kind of corrugated plasicky paper when you look under covers). The pram is nice and high and the baby is well away from car exhaust fumes. The seat unit is very roomy, I put my rather tall four year old in it to try it out and she could actually fit into it in lyng down position.
I find it very easy to push and it has a decent shopping basket.
I disagree that it is that awkward to fold / put in car. It folds extremely easy in two parts and I have had it in the boot of my renault modus (it did require fiddling about) and it fits easily in the boot of a fiat stilo. It can also fit in the boot of a zafira with one of the seats in the boot down.
I only regret that I did not get it years ago.Read moreLess

"This is the best pram if you want your child…"
This is the best pram if you want your child facing you. I have just got one off ebay, and I also have one of the new toddler seats just off the production line, yes there back everyone, no more ebay hunting for an odd one, come in three colours, black, slate and navy depending on your pram colour.
This pram comes with a carrycot and big seat for when your baby grows out of carry cot, friends I know have said these are so sturdy one pram did all 4 children. The seat for the toddler can be used from a year old to 4 years, as a nanny myself of 20 years, my little one goes in the pram and the charge goes in the seat, unless I have a small baby then my dd only one goes in seat. My baby loves the seat so much as its at talking height for myself and my husband that people always think we have a baby in the back of the pram, but we put the shopping and nappy bag there. The pram also has a huge metal shopping basket like the old fashioned silver cross.
As you can imagine as a nanny of 20 years I have pushed every pram on the market, this is the best for a baby and toddler, a lie flat pram for baby, a very long main seat when child needs to sleep and is bigger, the longest in the world on a pram, my sun shade clips to the toddler seat so my child is always out of sun, my raincover with a frame covers the whole pram including toddler seat with child in.
The only disadvantage, heavy to lift in car and you need either a people carrier, estate or 4x4. Or a very large normal boot. You could with a small car, just remove carrycot or seat and place wheels in boot and other bits in car, but obviously if you have people in car takes up room. But you need a large car for kids anyway, we have a picasso and fits with loads of extra room all together, folds down with one clip and one easy movement. Truthfully, check this out before any other, if you don't want set wheels, they come with the same seat section but wheels of your choice, I think 4 or 5 different types.Read moreLess
