Hi, i am thinking of a final fling and getting one for my DD who is 4.10 yrs old. We do a long school walk and nursery run atm and she will be going to school in sept.
Will she fit in a swift?
Where are the cheapest ones?
Am I just having a final pushchair crisis grin?
Loved the mountain buggy urban I had a couple of years ago.

I would think she would fit. My tall 2.5 year old had bags of room when I tried her. You can always get a Freerider skate board for your eldest (depending on age). No idea re where is cheapest though but would be interested to know.

Think the cheapest is www.practicalpushchairs.co.uk at £340
I have sat my tall 7y old in it. We can just get the hood up.
I think its similar or larger seatwise than a maclaren quest. A darn sight easier to push, and versatile enough for almost any off road excursion.
If you could only have one pushchair this would be the one. Not too big, not too small. Nippy in town, fits into small spaces on bus or train, or little boutiques.
Can handle most off road terrain, mud and snow any weather. Fits in our car boot without any dismantling.
The basket beneath employs tardis technology, really easy to access even with seat reclined fully. Useful pockets at side of basket so you don't loose small items. Can fit loads of shopping in. Basket v strong and well made.
Hood is good, ace flip out sun visor. We have the uv shade and rain cover too. These also are much better quality than average. They come in their own storage pouches which will velcro onto the pushchair frame. I fitted mine to the bar near the basket above the axel.

grin we love ours! Hope you get as much enjoyment using yours. I expect to still need ours when Ds begins school in a couple of years too. We also walk a lot so he will find four miles walking a day plus school too much I think. I think we will get lots of use out of it.
