do u want a pram, travel system, pushchair, stroller, 2in1, 3in1, 3 wheeler, air/hard tyres, brakes that are easy to use, off-road one, one for city life?

I've sold a double buggy on ebay but never bought. I would say that you want to see pictures of the actual pram that you are going to bid on (some people add pictures of new ones). Go to somewhere like Mothercare and test out loads of prams, see if there is you like and try to find that model. See what their feedback is like and if it is local you could always ask to go and look at it before you bid.

LOL misdee, would it not have been easier to ask, what kind of pushchair do yot want

then a travel sytem or 3 in 1 i think. try the reveiews on mumsnet to see what other says, and browse for ages before you buy one.

how old is dd? if she is young enough then pop her in to see how it stands up with a larger child in it and if it steers well.

dd is nearly 2.5. Am not even pg yet so she might be a teenager by the time I catch on (LOL).
