I recently bought one for my 4.5mth old son but just wanted a bit of advice really.

I have a fiat grande punto and I'm having issues fitting it in the car, wondered first of all if I'm fighting a losing battle here or if anyone has enough tips?

Also, exactly how do u fold it up? I can get the seat off without problems but folding the chassis. . . .confused

Help please!! I have the m+p herbie too and that fits lovely in the boot so I naturally expected this to.

I love my SC freeway, perfect winter pram as it's so snuggly warm for my ds . Just hope I can get some tips for squeezing it in my boot!

I have the same one and it doesn't fit in my ford focus which is an estate! I gave up and bought a stroller in the end. I use the pram when I am going walking from home.

To fold the base you need to lock the wheels using the switch on the wheel tops. Then Pull the handle on the left side which unlocks the pins in the side of the pram. Then sort of push it together. Don't know if this is making any sense or not.

It's best to remove the pram top before folding, although you don't have to. If you put the top on wrong it's really hard to get back off so make sure it's lined up properly before clipping in to place.

I hope this helps! If it makes no sense at all let me know and I'll try again!

Instruction video might help.

It is a very large pushchair but agree it's lovely , I had an all singing all dancing thing before but would get this if I had another LO.

Could you use this for walking and have smaller one for car?

Other option being if you could fit chassis/seat unit in boot and other part in back of car?

I'm bidding on a sleepover classic on ebay, the one with even bigger wheels because it seemed to solve all my problems for a trip to centre parcs, is it really really huge ?

Ooooh thank you thank you for your lovely advice - I handed the battle over to my dh who somehow fitted it in the boot jigsaw stylee grin

Ok in fairness the handle of the pram hangs over the back seat but thats ok cos my other dc's are small and their heads don't go that far up the seat (they're 4 and 5yo) gringrin

I have figured out how to fold it with the help of you chunkymunky and the instruction video also helped heaps mamadiva

Oh I am a happy mummy today, I have my super lovely pistacio freeway, it's only 4 weeks til christmas and all is well with the world (til bedtime when my dc's start fighting!)

mamatomany It is a very big pram and I'm not sure how the sleepover classic folds - I'm sure you'll love it though

THANKS LADIES!!!

I have the Pistachio Freeway too and I love it, so so snuggly and nice to push, my DD is 9 months and loves going out in it.
Takes up the whole boot of my Picasso though.

I'm so glad I have a big pram for this weather Brrrrrrrr <shivers> - sometimes when I get ds out of the pram he's totally roasted! But then again I panic sometimes and put an extra blanket in with him as well as the cosytoes - must stop doing that!!

Still a happy mummy here though grin

Mine coped pretty well in the snow yesterday, and DD was all snug in the cosytoes - wanted to jump in there with her in fact.

CherryPie3 Wed 01-Dec-10 12:19:45

I know it'd be lovely!! All snuggly buggly

I had the classic and freeway - yes it is a big pram but well worth it, I loved the classic, really really lovely to push. I also used to go on the bus with it all the time no problem
