I thought that this would be the best place to post this as you are all seasoned pushchair addicts...I am pg with #4 and I should really know what I want by now. I have my heart set on the Mountain Buggy Urban, but the price is bringing me out in a cold sweat. I have tried to persuade myself that the new nipper coming out in July is a great alternative, but i'm not so sure about the bucket seats (even with the improvements).
My cunning plan would be - buy the MB urban, best price £430 just now and sell in three years hopefully getting £200 for it? is this reasonable? Do you think i'd get much for the new nipper in three years time? I am very careful with pushchairs, and it will hopefully be in great condition (I also am sold on the fact that the fabric for the MB is removeable for washing).
If anybody has any advice or seen the MB for much cheapness, please let me know as budget is a real issue. Also, if I buy secondhand on ebay just now, will I get any kind of return from it in three years, or will it just be too old?
Thanks in advance!

The Urban Jungle (I don't know if that's the same thing) is £399 here in 'chocolate dot'.
Would you consider the Swift? They're supposed to be a fantastic pushchair. There's a good deal at Boots at the moment with a discount code and advantage card points.

Well spotted! I had seen this, unfortunately, its black or nothing for me. I had looked at the swift, but live in the sticks so probably could do with the bigger wheels. I have a much loved zapp for the shops and to keep in the car.
Thanks!

If it a good walking pushchair you need the Mura 3, Baby Jogger City Elite and Baby Jogger Summit are all fab and there are fab offers on all at Boots.

Nippers typically seem to go for half the retail 2nd hand but yes I do agree Mountain Buggies hold more value and IMO would be the better pushchair. As daft as it sounds I actualy thought the Nipper was too lightweight to push and felt like it was going to tip constantly although this was the twin version with 2 3 year olds in it.
