1. the shopping basket is too small.

2. if a toddler who is recently toilet trained has an accident, then the child underneath end up covered in urine

am off to buy a piddle pad now

awwwww so thats how it happened??? Wondered what DH meant when he phoned me and said that your DD2 had peed on DD3

brilliant buggy apart from these probs. invest in a piddle pad lol.

i8 am considering purchyasing the panniers as relying on buggy loads atm, and the basket is a PITA.

thanks - have also been recommend to buy the baby snuggle thingy with the handles on it

will add to list - panniers and piddle pad or one of those umbrella hats

well BIBBH did always swear by the panniers didn't he?
Personally I don't use the basket for much anyway.

third problem....... they are ugly!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I recommend phil & ted's although db2 has not yet arrived. It is fantastic. Even ds who hates all pushchairs willingly climbs into it for a ride.

I STRONGLY suggest buying one asap, because then you get lots of use out of it. It is SO much more fun pushing a spiffy 3 wheeler than our cheap Graco, AND you can feel that you are being frugal because you are getting maximum use out of it.

Can I just say that I use my regular bike panniers, not the phil & ted's ones, and they are fine. So if you actually own panniers you might be able to get away without buying more.

I'm with ML on this one!

misdee Wed 22-Jun-05 17:23:23

lol ML, just cos you love that marco sky contraption .

the cocoon is good for winter babies. atm ours is redundant, and if dd3 is too big i may have to consider selling the coccoon.

MarsLady Wed 22-Jun-05 17:26:17

I LOVE my Marco Sky. She's so beautiful and so uncommon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

<<runs for the hills laughing madly!!!!!!!!!!!!!>>

jessicasmummy Wed 22-Jun-05 17:26:38

ML - link to marco sky PLEASE

koalabear Wed 22-Jun-05 17:28:18

what's a marco sky, and do they do doubles ?

MarsLady Wed 22-Jun-05 17:30:55

well if you insist!

Have you seen that they are offering a free changing bag? I didn't get one sob!!
