Am looking to buy a 2nd buggy for holidays and generally to stick in the back of the car. Can you tell me if the Volo is ok for 1 year old? Also, has anyone got the Jané Unique? Any other recommendations? Thanks
Not heard of the Jane (can't find the accent on my keyboard!) but love my Volo - it's 5 years old now, but used it for both DDs on public transport from about 10 months - trains/tubes/buses - the lightest buggy on the market I believe (Silver Cross do one called Fizz that's supposed to be same weight but it felt heavier when I picked one up in John Lewis). Only disadvantage is it doesn't recline, but the DDs have fallen asleep in it OK, usually her head just goes to the side. The Silver Cross one reclines.
Just looked at the Jane - that looks good, like the idea that it can be freestanding (the Volo can't) but I'd need to try one as i know the MacLaren folding is so easy
Thanks Housemum, really helpful. I'm veering towards the Volo. I was a bit worried about the seat being a bit shallow for a 12mth old, but if you've used it from 10mths, that's reassuring. DD doesn't sleep in the buggy, so not too worried it doesn't recline. Thanks again.
The brakes are better on the new ones - I have an old one with the crap brake that you nudge/slide with your foot, the new ones have a oush down mechanism. I found it easy to push but then I had a Mamas & Papas Pliko before that really was crap to push - wobbly plastic handles.
