but do I really ?? DD is 2, we have a pliko, which is great, apart from the hood/sunshade etc. SO, having seen the fab hood on the maclaren AND the lovely sun visor, I think this is the way to go...but is it ? am I getting carried away, will we get much use out of it ? Are they sturdy/comfortable etc ?
Bear in mind that it may not be long before your dd doesn't want to use the pushchair any more ... my dd last sat in a pushchair when she was 2.5, so you may find that you don't get enough use out of it to make it worth while.
When we're on holiday or strolling, dd walks, and she hasn't needed a nap since she was about 18 months old. I guess we've been pretty lucky in that she has always been a good walker; it means everything has always been done at a snail's pace though!
DD is almost 25 mths & about 27lbs & pushing her to the toddler group gives me good excercise. The Maclaren is only about a 1lb lighter than the pliko, so probably not much difference in terms of pushing them around ?
I bought the maclaren xt for hols and even though its light the sunshade doesnt really cover much apart from her face and chest so we still need a parasola anyway. Also I find the shopping basket very hard to get anything in or out and its hard to recline.
Sorry to give you such bad news. I bought it because I fancied a new buggy but wished I had got something else now.
Very much agree with Kbaby! this pushchair is a nightmare. I used it for 3 months and then bought another one. both bought on www.Kiddicare.com with amazing discount. for the sun I bought a 'Shade a Babe' thing, which is the only efficient shade in my opinion in case of holiday in a sunny country like Spain.
hope this helps
