Bonito Bebé Boardwalk 3-1, Mutsy Evo

Hi all,

I'm having my first child and due in May so have starting looking at buggies etc...
I have read loads or reviews for all sort of buggies but can't find any mumsnet reviews for the Bonito Bebé Boardwalk 3-1 or Mutsy Evo. I'm looking at these mainly because they seem to have a much better price tag than most. The Microlite also seems good although you can only put the baby facing forward once it's 6 months or so...

My main needs for this pram are that it's not too expensive, easy to fold into the boot, easy to manoeuvre of course, and is suitable for talk people (my husband is 6,5ft)

I would appreciate any thoughts on the above prams, or of course any others that anyone has had and loves!

The evo I have seen it has a lie flat seat and the foot rest comes up so the newborn would be comfortable. I really like the evo would have got it if it had been available when i first bourght. it has a compact fold and the seat can be foldeded with the chassie forward facing and rear facing. The micralite toro I also had on my list you would need a carrycot often found cheaply on eBay. Depends on boot space needed. The one I have now is cossato giggle which I love comes. As a complete set with carrycot, bag, coseytoes, rain covers. You can often get a real bargain at a baby's how.

Things to think about where are you going to use it? Town country
Public transport or mostly car users (boot size)
Does it need to be folded to be stored.

Hope it helps

The Mutsy Evo is excellent. Good to push, good seating positions. The handlebar feels a little long but its good for a stroller board.
Theres a review here if that helps.
I can't help with the other pushchair.

Thank you both - the long handle of the Musty is an attraction as my hub is so tall - but it's great to hear about the Giggle - I've looked at that one a lot as it's such a good bargain!

Thanks again x

Just adding cause there aren't many reviews for Bonito Bebe Boardwalk. I have been using it for 5 months now. I love it. The set up is lightweight, very easy to manoeuvre, the handle extends. It is easy to fold and unfold and folds neatly and quite small. The pram and frame fit easily side by side in the boot of an Insignia, I can't say for sure but would reckon it should easily fit in most boots (possibly not the boots of very small cars). I use it a lot and have had no problems with it. The only downside is the lack of much padding in the car seat - I use a Babymoov Reducer cushion on mine which is sufficient and I would say you definitely would want extra cushioning in the car seat for a young baby. (The Babymoov Reducer cushion cost about £20 from Tesco.)
