I haven't bought a buggy for a few years. I've had a bugaboo, Quinn buzz4 & Mamas Papas with previous dc.

Im looking for a travel system as i drive, do school runs etc but i dont want the great big buggy that most of these systems seem to have.

I want a stroller that i can put a car chair into iyswim? Any ideas? I've looked at the Bugaboo Bee but Im not massively impressed.

We have bugaboo bee, it has some really good points, also really bad
Compact( smallest I have seen in its class, great on bus/in car)
The handle telescope, good on bus/in cafes
Travel system
Movable and nippy(turns in a circle)
Forward and parent facing
Lots of colours
Keeps its value, if you wanted to sell after
Can get bits on eBay
4 recline positions
New born to 4 years

Straps not padded (why???) and the arm padding slips
Baby cocoon (a must in my opinion)only lasts to about 4 months then you have to buy cosy for another hundred pounds (or get universal fit one)
Reviews say wheels can break, you can replace
It's fiddly to get set up right for new born

I got mine from kiddisave with cocoon and rain cover online for £500
Hope this helps x

Maclaren and OBaby both do umbrella stroller travel systems.

...oh can I add for all the bad points I live in London, in a flat, small car and the bee is perfect for what we need

I have a Bugaboo Bee and I live in Lond

London. That was meant to say. I live it for all the reasons listed above. It's a perfect, practical city pram.

*love, even.

I don't find it diddly for a newborn at all.

Plus it's really easy to put up and down, just in one with a click. It also grows as they do as the seat and back extend. Basket is a good size, it's light, has height adjustable handles and the cocoon is all snug and great if you don't have space to store a carry cot. It even fits behind our passenger seat if the boot is full. Parent and rear faces.
