Looking for something lightweight, easy to fold in one peice and forward/rear facing.

Will be used for urban walking and public transport.

space at home isn't to much of an issue and don't have a massive budget.

Yes its definitely suitable from birth. It will do what you want for about £200.

There's loads of photos etc here BTW under the green "reviews and information" button.

Thanks tiggy that review is actually the reason I'm even considering it as normally I really don't like umbrella pushchairs but this is the only one from birth pushchair that suits the bill.. I do wish there was something sturdier though lol

It's pretty sturdy TBH....not a flimsy umbrella fold.

Would you not consider the Zia? I had it and it was great and folded really pretty easily.

There is the new Petite Zia Evolve Pramette which parent faces for the first six months or the Quinny Zapp Xtra which although folds as two pieces (for now - see other thread) is no biggie. I also like the new Babystyle Oyster Gem.

I like the Baby Jogger Versa out in August. Flaming expensive so would have to be a main pushchair not a second for the car. but its parent facing, folds in parent facing mode. Carrycot compatable and car seat compatable and suitable for all terrains. This pushchair could be used with one hand whilst holding your older childs hand and folds small.

Personally I have had the Zapp xtra and was disappointed that in parent facing mode the child cannot sit upright, meaning that come 4-6mths you have to turn the seat round.

The Njoy bubble looks good but I suspect this will be like anyother stroller and will not steer using one hand but I havent tested it.

I had the city mini for my ds (now 6) and lived out but not sure I can justify or afford a minimum spend of £400.

I developed a bit of a pram fetish last trine and don't want to go down that road again and due to this I've fine right of the njoy again as the only two pushchairs I truly hated were the umbrella folds (Mac xt, Jane energy).

I'm not actually sure till march so maybe I could get one second hand by then for £200... Wishful thinking me thinks!

Hi hoping someone can help! I recently purchased a Petite Star Njoy Stroller and although I cant fault the actual stroller, it doesn't come with a footmuff and the universal footmuffs I've tried don't seem to fit it. I've contacted Petite Star who seem to have the most unhelpful Customer Service Team ever as they keep changing their mind as to when the footmuff will be available for this model and are completely ignoring my query as to whether any of their other footmuffs would be suitable. Has anyone else managed to find a footmuff which can be used for the PetiteStar Njoy? Thanks.

Tiggywunkle Tue 27-Nov-12 13:27:27

Why do the footmuffs not fit? I would have thought a hook over top one would work?

Mummy2B1986KH Wed 28-Nov-12 16:32:45

Its the harness that is the problem, the bit that clips round the middle is too big and chunky to fit through the slits on the footmuffs I've tried.

Tiggywunkle Wed 28-Nov-12 22:32:44

Hmmm...yes I understand now. TBH you may just need to doctor a footmuff.

I bought a John Lewis own brand footmuff which is fine for £25. Only thing is you can't fold it with the footmuff on and rear facing but I imagine that would be the same for any footmuff.

Hi ya
I have the petite star bubble and use the VIB footmuff on it its great and very cosy looking. I got footmuff for £20.00 in pram centre hope this helps

They've got one colourway in the returns/reduced/end of line section of the website for only £70-£90 right now. At that price, I'd risk it tbh.

They also have a 3 wheeler double with footmuffs etc for only £100. Looks good as a winter dodgy pavements school run jobby iykwim.

I've been looking at this too. I have a maclaren volo which is great for nipping around on buses but if they fall asleep head lolls... I've read a few reviews thats say s its really easy to push even with a bigger toddler in it. Does this ring true for those who've tried it?

Hrc152 Sun 17-Feb-13 23:02:39

Yes absolutely. I had my very large 15 month old in it rear facing and it was a breeze to push. Great pushchair smile
