Is there such a thing? Am wondering about ditching my Oyster and my cheapo car stroller and getting one nicer stroller, but if I am giving up the Oyster I really want something that pushes one handed. DD is 18mo. Any suggestions?
Oh bloody hell, Callisto looks like exactly what I want, but is ££££!!!! And we're just about to move house Chicco is veeery cheap but has separate handles - but a ton of bags and a 2.4 year old you say? Interesting.....
Checked out that eBay listing-seller has good feedback and is a business seller, they've loads of prams for sale. Condition wise it's similar to mine, few marks but you expect that with a used pram! If it were me I'd go for that one! The Callisto was about £260 new, it's a well built and solid, my maclaren feels flimsy in comparison! I use mine as the buggy I keep in the car boot and wouldn't be without it-to the extent that I am tempted to buy a spare incase it breaks! The single handle is such a great feature, my wrist used to end up aching from pushing the mac one handed. Can't comment on the liteway as I've not used one yet but it looks really nice! Tricky isn't it buying a pushchair! I've already got 3 and DD is only 12 weeks!
Good lord! I had a Mothercare My3 when DD was born, which I loathed - so we got a Babystyle Oyster when she was about 3mo which I love but takes up a very large proportion of our boot. Then we bought a Mamu2 (I think) for £30 from Argos Clearance to take on hols, but 1) it's rubbish to push and 2) it hasn't coped well with the flight to Scotland and back - the two handle bits are now hanging off it! So this would be no4. She is 18mo so that means I will have had one pushchair every 4.5 months - hardly any compared to your rate of one every 4 weeks!!!
Hope Milknosugar comes back so she can give me her opinion, as she has used both.
The worst part is I bought all 3 before she had even arrived! The mac I had from DS, at the time I loved it, mind you i had a mamas and papas pliko and anything was preferable to that! I bought a britax b smart as my main pram for DD and I love it-it copes with anything! But it doesn't fit in my car boot well at all! So on my due date, bored waiting for baby I happened across the Callisto on eBay and impulse bought it! So glad I did! Hopefully milknosugar will come back and compare the two for you!
