WE got DD this lovely little pushchair from Toys R Us for her 2st birthday (2 years ago). IT says from 3 years,, but the handle was adjustable - so it could be made lower for her to push. And it was very stable, unlike so many, so she couldn't pull it over on top of her.

have to second hulas choice, we bought a very similar one for DD's first birthday from John Lewis, she still loves it now at 2.5years

Thankyou katemum - it was on her first birthday. On it you can see how the handle is put to the lowest position. She still uses it now - turned 3 in April. It has had almost daily use and is still in excellent condition. And bigger dolls do fit in it - DD's baby Annabel, Little Lucy and her Cabbage Patch thing all fit in it fine.

Thank you for your advice i was a bit unsure about buying one for an older child but knowing that some of you have done it with no problems has put my mind at rest

My nan bought a little ladybird one but to be honest Katie is now nearly 2 and she uses the girls prams which are for age 4+ but with adjustable handles!!

dd had a simple plastic Winnie the Pooh one, similar to the Ladybug one, (branded Lady Magic) from Argos, recommended age from 18 months. Think you can now get a similar style with Disney Princess and Mamas and Papas fabric like here but their site is slow today. The handle height adjusts and it converts to a cradle when they outgrow the pram. Do bear in mind that unless she is walking solidly by then it will be less stable to push than a normal pushalong walker and harder to manoeurve.

I would say get a light one as you will no doubt end up carrying it!
