Any experience/views/reviews?

I am looking for something compact, light and good off road (sand) and easy to fold.

The general consensus, and my opinion, is that it's rubbish!grin It might be good on sand-I'm not sure-but it doesn't fit the other criteria at all.
What's your budget? I'm sure we can find you something far superior.wink

Ah rubbish!! Oh well.

Budget is a bit flexible but looking around £350 ish (or less obviously!). . . .

Ooh no - could get muich better than that - seat is awkward and hot, v wide and like a tank - hard to fold/unfold and large folded, and seat rear facing is only in recline and semi-recline - not upright

What other things you after? I have to say I've found my bargain urban detour the best for sand by far

Do you like 3 wheelers? Is this for a newborn or older baby? Do you want parent facing? If it's for a young baby, would you consider something that you can put a carrycot on so that the baby is facing you until they are old enough to sit up in a pushchair and then face forward? And would you consider second hand?

I'm selling mine on Ebay as we speak! Not because I don't like it, just that we've finished with it.

I don't know why people say they're rubbish. We have a four wheeler and it managed the school run twice a day in the very heavy snow last winter - was about the only pushchair which got through it.

It's very comfortable for your LO too and lovely to push - very smooth.

If anyone know anything else with a seat unit like that (tips back, rahter than flat recline), rear facing and 3 wheeler - i would love to hear as was considering the buzz and getting the 'off road' from wheel... currently using a vigour 3 which fits everything i need but want a smaller fold sad

Sorry to hijack your thread! The vigour has been good for us though if it helps but can only get 2nd hand though and huge folded! sad

Sorry been unable to check this thread for a while

Ideally want the option of parent facing yes. Don't really want to have to buy separate carry cot as space is at a minimum. I would consider second hand. Don't mind three wheelers.

Needs to be light, good off road, fairly hardy, bit of luggage space, able to get through doorways, for newborn to toddler.....

We have an icandy cherry but it broke recently so while it was being repaired by John Lewis we had a quinny buzz replacement. It was awful! the only good thing was that it seemed to be quite a smooth ride over bumpy ground. But it was hard to push, no basket space, heavy, handle was uncomfortable ... shall I go on??

I'd suggest the icandy cherry - I'd say it ticks all the boxes in the last sentence of your last post. The only thing is you do have to buy the carry cot for the new born separately. And just to say the reason ours broke I think was for overuse - but we use it pretty much every day off road so it was sort of inevitable.

Hated mine... Sold it when ds was 4 weeks and bought a bugaboo which is great (and has a special sand mode using just 2 weeks
