Thank you Frigg grin
Help! My Urbo is ....... well just too small now and annoying me..... any comments on the Vio? will it last til my DS is too old for it? I should probably go to the shop to see it but there's one on i'm watching on Ebay that ends before i'll have to chance to go to M'care confused

right,now, what exactly do you use your buggy for?
where do you go?town?country?buses?car?
what is important to you?ie flat lie back,rear facing? handle height?

Car and semi off roading...... tho we have a big Mamas Sport 03 for the really muddy days so just a general push about needed really. Have a Golf so boot space is ok and don't use buses.... do have a very pokey post ofice that I seem to be in every day and my 3 wheeler just thinks it's stuck in there forever when we go! grin
Problem really is my Urbo sits so high and DS is just too long for it! sad
Along with the fact I need a change! blush
Just don't want the Vio to be too similar to the Urbo and less like a toddler buggy...... I might sound mad blush but maybe folk with an Urbo will understand......hmm

Lie back would be good which it has...... I discounted the Quinny because it doesn't recline

FriggFRIGG Fri 12-Aug-11 21:11:59

honest,follow my link,its a baby jogger city mini you needsmile
use code en84 for 10% extra off at mothercare.

FriggFRIGG Fri 12-Aug-11 21:13:45

you dont sound mad,not to us....were all a bit mental round heregrin

beaditAli Fri 12-Aug-11 21:48:34

why are there no cheap Baby Joggers on Ebay? After justifying my Urbo after an 03 and a Pliko..... i'll have my work cut out! There's a Vio for £35 starting bid on ebay...... confused...... DH will never speak to me again if I pay full price for anything else sad

FriggFRIGG Fri 12-Aug-11 21:58:07

hmmm,i'll keep my eyes open for you....check preloved,and the MN for sale could maybe sell the urbo and the pilko if you dont use them anymore?

I was going to suggest the 2011 B Mobile but it's currently reduced from £200 to £120 in Babies R Us. Is that too much?

beaditAli Sat 13-Aug-11 07:29:05

Was thinking of keeping the Urbo and getting a carry cot for it for when we have another hmm
It has to be a second hand one or I will definitely be in the bad books!
Frigg my Dad broke the Pliko so it's at their house as a spare..... not sure anyone would want it! It was 6 years old when we got it sad
I'd sell the 03 but absolutely nobody wants them!

FriggFRIGG Sat 13-Aug-11 08:48:55

you could try the petite star zia,lots of people like that...come up much cheaper on ebay that the BJCM,i havent had one though so cant rate it personally.

aswellasyou Sat 13-Aug-11 11:59:24

I'm pretty sure the Zia and Vio are the same thing just rebranded. There's also a Ladybird one, and maybe a Safety First version too.

Chicco Multiway has huge seat and big wheels so it is great for a lot of walking.

shatteredmumof5 Sun 14-Aug-11 11:12:17

Dont know if it might help but I have a BJCM chassis that I was going to throw away as the set fabrics got ruined and I dont think Ill use it so never replaced it. You are welcome to that for free so all you would have to do is buy the seat fabrics (not sure how much they are).I would need to know asap though as we are planning to do a tip run today. I will check it out as its been in the garden for AGES!!

beaditAli Sun 14-Aug-11 19:57:10

blahhhhhhhhhhh just lost my post!
shatteredmum thanks so much but you've probably tipped it by now! One has cropped up near us on Ebay so i'll keep an eye on it tho it has 6 days left hmm
Saw a Vio in passing today and it's really big...... much bigger than a Petite Star Zia so not really sure it's what I want.

Thanks for all the help xx
