All those you see are things like Cosattos, hauks, unbranded ones from Kiddicare/Argos, that sort of thing.
And I'd really think twice about getting one. I have a Cosatto which I bought as I wanted the particular colour way/footmuff that it came with. Plus my mum doesn't like my BJCM so wanted a buggy. And I hate it . By the time I've faffed trying to put it up, wrestled DD into it, and got all the wheels facing in the right direction, I'm wishing I'd taken the City Mini. The push is terrible by comparison and the putting up and folding down is a real arse.
Volo has no suspension and yoyo does (as far as I remember). I have a volo and though it's only 4kg it feels heavier to push than my cam at nearly 10 kg. But it's light to carry when folded or with dcs going up or downstairs. I want a yoyo too for its single handle and suspension and clever fold.
Just to say, I tried the Nuna Pepp in John Lewis and didn't think it was up to much at all, but that might ave been because it took even the JL staff about 15 minutes to fold and unfold it, and to attach the car seat - this mit not be relevant to you though.
What you want is the Tippi Toes. It's £35 on amazon, lightweight, folds up and down easily, and has a hood, rain cover and an adjustable seat. We love ours, it's brilliant for travelling or just negotiating public transport - I can lift it with DD in it (and she's a hefty wee thing), which is a big plus on the underground.
I bought a petite star zia recently from their reworked section on nurseryvalue.com for £89, their reworked buggies mean as new or repaired, it actually arrived in brand new condition with all the tags on. It is a small fold and v lightweight. Personally I didn't get on with it and I'm going to get a bjcm, so we have just sold it on but for a runaround buggy it ticks the boxes
