Hi, I have this pushchair in the Anis colours which are yellow/grey/black and I have found the yellow really attracts insects. The whole hood is bright yellow and every minute I have to sweep the flying insects off it otherwise it looks really unsightly and make me feel nervous not knowing what sort of insects will land on it. I find it strange that a company would make a pushchair in these colours, I really didnt think about it when I bought it but now I have to pay £50 to buy a new hood in a different colour to stop this silliness.
Have other companies made yellow pushchairs?
Has anyone else has this issue and do you really think I should have to pay for a new hood to keep my 5 month old safe? The company suggested I put a insect net over it, but I really don't want to do this every single time I go out on a sunny day, surely my baby is entitled to fresh free flowing air?

Bugaboo yellow hoods are the same.
I would never have thought about asking for refund or compensation for this problem. Don't ask you don't get though grin

I find it happens with red hoods too.

Chicco used to do a yellow stroller so it's not just them, to be fair it's not really their fault I doubt they test it for insect attraction... I'd be more concerned if it fell apart or something but I guess it's your PFB in which case you are fine to be thinking they did you wrong grin

How about the shade maker? Not so pretty but cheaper and look out for jane slalom fabrics on Ebay.

Think yourself lucky you don't own this grin

Grass and flowers I dread to think what would be attracted to that...

Ahh but this grass and flowers pushchair is stunning

Tis quite pretty Guildford but can you imagine how dirty it would get! You would be scared to use it or leave it in the hallway without a pristine washed, pressed and ironed dust sheet over the top grin

Ooh, I love the slalom r in anis, and personally thought the grass Jane was funky too!
I've a yellow pram too and haven't noticed it particularly attracting insects. Mine came with a zip in insect net anyway though the pram I have comes with that accessory whatever colour you buy.
Just out of interest do you dress your baby in sombre colours to avoid attracting insects too?
