Been reading through the threads and it seams there is a lot of knowledge out there so I hope someone can help. We are expecting our 1st baby in May and now starting to look for things for her but the choice is soo onfusing!

I have seen the Norton Storm and love it but would like a carrycot option but this then pushes it over our 400 budget inc car seat(not strict but would really like to try!) I then looked at there website and they now do a pramette on the same chassis.

Has anyone seen one anywhere and would you risk buying one not seeing the seat unit as I have tried out the chassis?

For us:
I am 5'2 and DH is 6'4
We have a Focus and Mondeo so think boot space should be ok
We are not really outdoorsey types so dont think we need off road
We rarely use public transport
I dont like the look of the really modern ones like the icandy or bugaboo ect

Thanks in advance! smile

I went shopping today and had a proper demonstation of a few different option and I really like the iCandy Apple!

It was easy to use and folded well while looking really cozy with the fleecey liner so now looking for some good deals.

Hi, I'm trying to decide between the Norton Storm and the iCandy Apple - I'd really appreciate it if you could tell me which one you went for in the end and what swung your decision in the end?
Thank you very much! smile

Funny, I've just read your posts again - I'm 5'3 and DH is 6'4 and we also have a Focus so in a similar situation! Your input would be very much appreciated! I realise you may well be close to your due date now, hope all is going well!
