Does anyone know anything about the BJC Micro?

As far as I can tell, the differences between that and the Mini are:

it is a bit heavier
wheels are smaller
hood is smaller
doesn't recline flat

Apart from this, is it much the same as the Mini. I'm going mad trying to find a suitable toddler buggy that doesn't cost the earth! There isn't too much info available for the Micro.

I think you've summed it up as far as I know. It's £75 here in green if you get to it quickly.smile

Thank you, aswellasyou
£75 is a bargain, but not sure I could live with lime green ;)

I think we might go for the Micro though, as it suits our needs and can't justify the Mini as DD is nearing 17 months!

aswellasyou Fri 29-Jul-11 14:20:09

It was worth telling you at that price! I'm not sure about the colour either.

if shes only 17 months,i go with the mini....my DD is 3years old,shes a good walker,but i still definitely need a buggy!
you'll get lots of use yet!

There are some fab deals on at present smile I think the Micro is a great choice once your LO s past the long nap stage ie there is a recline but it's not flat. You summed the differences up nicely. There is a good You Tube video somewhere showing the Mini and Micro side by side. Whether you need a good recline or not for me decides which one to buy.

I've just been out and saw a Micro so I had a good look to see what looked different. The straps aren't adjustable to different shoulder heights on the Micro, but are on the Mini. It may be that I don't remember, but I feel like the seat looked a little bit narrower.

the micro seat is slightly taller than the mini, if that makes a difference, but both generous.

we have the micro and love it

minty, seen as tiggy and frigg think you should get a Mini, I've been on a mission to find you a good deal you might be able to justify. Here it is:
-Choose one of the jogger city mini&t1_sort=P_PRICE#container Minis at Boots that have triple points for £249.99.
-Use code PYPLNL70 to get 10% off, making it £202.49
-You get 4032 points if you're in the Parenting Club, so equivalent to £40.32.
-Go through Quidco to get 6% cashback if you've never bought from Boots.com before, 2.5% if you have. That's £12.15/£5.06 back.

All in all, assuming you shop at Boots and will use the advantage points to buy things you normally do, it will cost you £150.02 or £157.11. That's cheap!grin

Err, I don't know what happened to my link hmm

aswellasyou Fri 29-Jul-11 18:30:32

Of course, you could do the same and get a Micro for £85.91 or £89.98.

mintymellons Fri 29-Jul-11 19:29:08

That's so kind of you aswellasyou, thank you!

aswellasyou Fri 29-Jul-11 19:39:26

You're welcome!smile Which are you going to go for?[nosey]

aswellasyou Fri 29-Jul-11 19:44:07

I've just clicked on my second link and seen it didn't work.confused I'm sure you're capable of searching for them though.wink

I've had the mini and have the micro now.

I got the mini when ds was about 2 and loved it. We used it for just over a year until he got too tall for that and we swapped to the micro as it does have a slighlty taller backrest.

I love them both but did prefer the mini that bit more for the hood, flat recline, and it was just a bit easier to push.

What are you going for?

FriggFRIGG Fri 29-Jul-11 22:05:10

<waves to blueeyed>grin

blueeyedmonster Fri 29-Jul-11 22:14:23

<waves back to frigg> grin

I've decided to stick with the Micro as it suits our needs. Am going to use all of your great savings aswellasyou!

Thanks again smile
