"nice but not exccellent…"
i had one of these for a short while for my baby when he was small, the carry cot was very comfy he slept like a log he refused to sleep in anything else when he was small.. the pushchair is fine and is parent and forward facing, downfall of this buggy, the straps seemed flimsy to me, it was large heavy and you had to heave it around, also not useful if you have a small car as even though the wheels come off the chassis is huge.Read moreLess

- 0-6 mth pram does not lie completely horizontal
- Cannot wash pram padded covers
- Hard to get pram seat (6mth+) to recline - buttons are very stiff and have become more so
- Car seat is very heavy
- Hard to get car seat onto the wheel base
- Hood comes off too easily
- Looks shabby very quickly
- Cannot put anything heavy-ish in the basket. Now when I tilt the pram to go up and down kirbs the front wheels start to fold under the pram - very dangerous (found this after using for about 2.5 years - have had to stop using it)
Would not recommend this pram or car seat.Read moreLess

"i cannot wax lyrical about this buggy/pram enough, it is…"
i cannot wax lyrical about this buggy/pram enough, it is a total joy to use. Steers easily with one hand which has proved useful in this snow as had to hold hand of my DS at same time. I really love the look of this buggy and have had lots of admiring glances. My best friend bought the bugaboo chameleon and i can honestly say the Herbie out performs in some areas. It is v easy to put up and down and stores easily in small cars. my friend has small fiesta and we can comfortsbly get it in there. Have only used it with the pram bit thus far and am really reluctant to switch to the buggy seat as baby Alice has been so snug and comfy in it. Also perfect for daytime napping. I havent had a single moment of buggy envy and am soooo pleased with the Herbie, especially the adjustable handle which is great as i am quite tall. To conquer the bag and handle problem i bought stork sack clips and they have proved v useful for hanging changing bag or shopping bags. One slight prob is basket is v inaccessible from the pram position but thid doesnt really detract from just how smooth comfortable and stylish a pram this really is! (can u tell i really like this pram??!!??)Read moreLess

Very good pram/pushchair. Stylish and practical. Adjustable handle height. Easy to fold down and store. My son is very tall (91st centile) and he was comfy in here with good clearance on the hood. He loved being rear-facing.
Bad - cant collapse if seat is rearfacing, have to dismantle first.Read moreLess

i have the green herbie its looks good and the carry cot is very comfi and loads of room for growth the only down side is there is no where to put the changing bag it doesnt fit underneith or over the handles like other prams big hugh pain for me have to carry bag on shoulder very annoying.Read moreLess
"The good: Stylish and versatile. The pram is good for…"
The good: Stylish and versatile. The pram is good for young babies and can double as a moses basket if you change the mattress. The space underneath is bigger and more accessible than most for storage. It is manouverable and sturdy as well as quick and easy to fold. We used the Primo Vaggio car seat which clips in easily.
The bad: Rather expensive particularly with a car seat, unless M&P are doing a discount when you buy. Heavy and bulky if stowing in a car boot.
Peer pressure says get a 3 in 1 but in reality a lighter, more compact model would be more useable. Overall though we are happy with it.Read moreLess
