Mainly for holiday use. Like maclaren but would be nice to get something as good but a bit cheaper.

The Noa? We got one last week and its absolutely brilliant. I don't know how much a Mac is but the Noa is around £150. It doesn't look much but it is fantastic so far and the fold is tiny! Otherwise there were some cheap Baby Jogger City Micros on Tesco last week at around £80, or look on Ebay for one.

There were some chicco liteway at www.kiddicare.com, they look nice. I've heard they're good.

Nooooooo - not the liteway, I had one and it was shite. Front wheels kept jamming, foam on handles came loose and seat really slumpty all within a week. Mamas and Papas Nipi/Pipi meant to be very good, as is recon (as new) petite star zia from here

All else what about a second hand maclaren?

Well ive always fancies a maclaren as we have had two lightweight stroller so far one being a petite star which didnt last brake was rubbish. so wondering whether is worth spending a bit more on a maclaren!? or are they much a muchness? Thing is havent got alot of time, go away saturday and was relying on a roofbox which isnt suitable for our car now, so cant take my bugaboo so need a small pushchair asap!

Definitely worth spending the extra on a maclaren. Get an XT as it has the fab hood which has a sun visor and pulls down for sun protection.

Other than that, would recommend a BJCmini, my favourite pram before the mac.

The Obaby Atlas is good for the money, one of my friend's has used hers for her son since borth and he is now almost 2.

My favourite would be the City Mini but it's not really budget friendly most of the time and the XT's are available for around £50 second hand but I don't get on with Maclarens at all!
