I'd have to say no. I'm relatively disappointed with my pop. Its fine. It does the job. But its not the great everday buggy I thought it would be.
The seat is too shallow, so I always have to have the foot rest bit up because he slides off. Its a nightmare to push around. Really stiff. Although to be fair a bit of lube on the wheels might help - havent tried. Cant access (small) basket with reclined seat. The footmuff is a load of pants. The bit you sit on is ok, but the top bit is really awkward to zip on and off and my son is now too long for it anyway and his feet get squashed. Its a bit narrow too. Of course you don't have to buy the matching footmuff The clicky strap device is stiff and I have trouble opening and shutting it. Handles arent adjustable at at 5ft5 I find them just a tad too high for me. Good Points: The recline position is fine, and it has a good upright position which is why I got it - DS (19mo) hates not being able to sit bolt upright. I like the hood - its a good size and covers quite wwell I also think its good as a 'keep in the boot for shopping' buggy. Doesnt take up too much room. Handles are good for hanging things off Like the little pocket on the back Quite easy to pop up and down.
I have the Salsa one from Mothercare and it's my 'car buggy' so I don't use it for long spells really. But I like it and haven't found it stiff at all. My DD is 13 months and still has the leg rest up although my 3 year old niece had a turn in it on holiday and she looked comfy with the leg rest down.
Does anyone know if this pushchair can be used with a buggy board?
Mothercare sold me it on the understanding that it could (it is on their 'official list', I rang the helpline later to check), but I got it home and the instructions say not to use a buggy board with it.
Then again, it also says not to carry shopping bags on the handles, so I'm not sure how seriously to take the advice.
