Do I want a Micralite Toro?

When I dump the BJC Select which I hate, in a few months when I'm sure I don't need a tandem anymore and DS2 has outgrown the carrycot.

I want a neat tidy little thing again. Is it neat and tidy?

I had a fastfold rather than the toro and I loved it. It was neat and compact but tall when folded. DS was 2 when I got it so not sure how well it would have done for a younger, napping toddler.

What sort of pushchair do you like? Why do you hate the BJCS?

Thanks for that Hiccup, I agree DS2 won't be any good in the fastfold but its nice to know someone likes the make.

Tiggy, I want a one piece fold that I could take on a plane but still looks good and is able to cope with some bumpy terrain. DH saw a fastfold in town and liked the quirk but I don't think DS2 will be ok in that for some time, so I looked at the website and saw the Toro instead.

The BJCS is too big, too heavy, the adaptors don't slide in well, doesn't fit in the boot well without taking the wheels off, DS1 hates the seat, it doesn't steer well on anything but shopping mall floors and I struggle to get it in the boot.

I want the BJCM back really but the non adjustable handlebar is a nono and DH doesn't like it.

I started off with a Toro which a friend passed on. I hated it as I couldn't get the handles high enough even when I added the extendable handlebars. I'm 5ft 8" with short arms and I found myself hunched over it all the time. After a few months my back got so sore I had to sell it.

If your arms are a normal length it may be fine
