So I went to Mothercare today and quite liked the Bebeconfort Loola

I'm only 14 weeks, but very bad at making decisions!

I found it smooth to push, good suspension, easy to fold although a bit heavy to lift in and out of car (but nothing in comparison to the Cosatto tandem I had a few years ago!)

But now I see there are loads of bad reviews on here...

Just out of interest are you in Glasgow?

Ceolas Wed 21-Feb-07 14:29:01

I might be


MrsBadger Wed 21-Feb-07 14:29:47

did you not think it utterly fugly?

I think it falls down because it tries to be all things to all men - facing both ways, umbrella folding, carrycot, carseat, lightweight etc when really there is no one pushchair that does it all.

(hello again)

Ceolas Wed 21-Feb-07 14:30:19

But I want a pushchair that does all that!

I was in Mothercare, Glasgow at lunchtime. Did you come in with two children - are you really fit looking

Ceolas Wed 21-Feb-07 14:37:52

Ha! I wish! I was alone for a brief luxurious moment. But I was in Glasgow

MrsBadger Wed 21-Feb-07 14:38:18


No one pushchair does all that - get a big comfy one for walking with, a Techno to sling in the boot and a safe carseat that fits your car properly (am evangelical about this approach).

Ceolas Wed 21-Feb-07 14:39:44

That is my deep down thought MrsB. But one can flirt with the possibilities!

Ceolas Wed 21-Feb-07 14:41:23

On the subject of a big comfy one for walking with I am currently fantasising about the Bebecar Stylo. Because it has steering front wheels

MrsBadger Wed 21-Feb-07 14:45:27

ooh, well, if you're flirting, have a peek at the Bebecar R-Versus and the Inglesina Otutto , which are the same sort of deal...

Okay Ceolas I am very observant so I would have noticed everyone in that shop - I was in between 11.45 and 1.30 today. Did you see me. I was wearing a big mahoosive long blue maternity dress.

Ceolas Wed 21-Feb-07 16:15:01

'Frain I was gone by 11.15!

I have just sold my loola after 14 months of using it. I really liked it - it did do everything I think. The only reason I have sold it was
1. It was quite heavy for a buggy (not for a travel system though which is what we brought it as) so I have brought an ultra light buggy
2. My ds looked quite squished up in it recently and the buggy we've brought gives him alot more room.

the only think I would say is that if you face the seat towards you it DOESN'T fold up like an umbrella - you have to take the seat off to fold the chassie. because f this it mostly faced away from me and I did half buy it because it faced me. It was fine with the car seat attachment!

I really liked mine

because Bugaboo, iCandy, Ziko and Pliko are all really sensible names for pushchairs...

they're as bad as cars

I was going to post that I quite liked my Loola - but cod's post sort of ruined that for me

alittlebitshy Wed 21-Feb-07 17:31:39

nooooooooooo cod- according to my dd loola is charlie's sister

LittleHarrysMum Wed 21-Feb-07 17:31:53

I LOVE my Loola, apart from the shopping basket being such a PITA to get things in and when you do get stuff in there it's v. small!! But other than that love it, especially the name
