I don't know your budget but I have just bought a Babyhome Emotion Xtreet. I think it was £230. Just 5kgs, big easy to access basket, folds small, my 2.5 year old has tons of room in it. I haven't had chance to try it out yet but I bought it a) because it's gorgeous and b) someone I got chatting to about it has been using one for a year with her older child (I think he is 4). I ordered one from Spain and it arrived within a couple of days from Europakids. Worth a look anyway.
Thanks - have looked and it does look good - but would you mind letting me know what you think once you have tried it - as I can just imagine DHs face when I tell him I'm getting one imported from Spain! Also, handle height is a bit of an issue as I'm 5ft 8 and he 6ft and both like tall handles
FRIGG I've had 2 superlites and 3 fastfolds but just cannot get on with the handles - or getting them on and off buses - the amount of times it's tipped over with DC in as I've forgetten to lock the front swivel wheels
Plus - his head is where the recline bar behind is so no good for dropping him back for naps (try as we might he is still firmly attached to his naps - his big bro was 3.5 before he gave them up - although they currently wake up at 4-45 each day
I will let you know but to be honest it may be a while until we actually use it. We have quite a collection and I bought it for when the baby comes out if his infant car seat, which will be within the next month or two, for nipping into the doctors or shops. Hubby is hmmm nearing six foot and he thought the handle height was fine around the house but I know that's not a good test!
Have you also looked at the BJ City Elite? I have a double here at present and am amazed at how low and how tall the handle goes and yet its not much bigger than the Mini - quite surprising really because it sounds huge in comparison. The storage & comfort levels is much better too.
