Can you help me meet my rather stringent pushchair demands??
- three wheeler - light, if possible - can fit in the back of a Nissan Micra - suitable from three months upwards - has or can fit a buggy board - not too dear, ideally £50 or under, or available second hand
How about a Petite Star Zia? These are the completed listings to see how much they tend to sell for. They're not amazing quality but they're suitable from birth and are pretty teeny weeny folded up. It depends how much you'll be using it. I know quite a few people who have used one from birth as their only pushchair and their babies are 12 months ish now. I doubt you'd be able to use a buggy board actually. I'll keep thinking but I think it'll be difficult for £50.
Some more I've thought of: Ladybird Bubble-looks like a rebranded Zia to me Cosatto Venture which I don't know anything about Quinny Speedi which looks good quality but I don't know how small it'll fold. The wheels look quite big so it might make a big difference to the folded size if you're willing to take the wheels off to put in the boot.
I'm struggling again! There might be others that will fold quite small as long as you take the wheels off. I happily do this all the time because I'm often squeezing two pushchairs or one double pushchair in a boot. It doesn't bother me at all but you might be different. I hope I've helped even a little bit.
Actually, you might find that a Baby Jogger City Mini/Micro/Classic/Series will fit and you could find one on eBay second hand in your budget. They're well made pushchairs-much better than a Zia or similar.
Thanks! I am utterly clueless and your suggestions are really useful! WBB, I am looking for a day to day pushchair, I don't want to get more than one if I can help it. But if it falls apart, no worries. Ideally from 3 months to... whenever.
away, thankyou for the addition suggestions - I do like the petite one but the Hauck ones are a bit cheaper - it would be nice to get a new pushchair (for once!). I imagine buggy boards are a bit of a problem on three-wheelers? DD will be 3 1/2 so not entirely necessary but would be useful.
