Saw this at the weekend and have fallen in love with it, except for the price. Anyone know of others that are very similar to this but are cheaper?

Thanks for the help. smile

Hi sicky, where did you look? just curious as we bought an icandy but got a good deal at John Lewis as it was an anniversary package smile

Looked in John Lewis. Wasn't keen on the Icandy, my partner is very tall and the handle didn't go tall enough.

Oh sorry I just meant it might be worth looking in there as they have go deals on prices sometimes smile

Take a look at the Britax Affinity. Its excellent for the money.
The MyChild Pinto is good too and IRC its got a tall handle.

What features do you particularly like about the vista? I always think the oyster looks similar but have never owned either.

Have you considered second hand vista?

I had a Vista, it was bloody marvellous. But. They are not cheap, and they are not small either, especially if you need to fold and unfold everyday, they take up most of the boot space. The quality is excellent though, and they push/handle like a dream. What's your budget?

They are def not comparable with the Oyster. It's a good pushchair, but not a patch on the Vista.

Uppababy vista having a nightmare, watermarked after a few weeks even using rain cover. Anyone else? So far john lewis and uppababy been dire about this. Claiming its just me but have found same on Facebook post re uppababy. Suggesting I wash it each time??!!

I'm out in the rain often & have got no problem with my vista. In fact, given it's taken a daily hammering for the last 7 months it looks pretty much good as new.
Op kiddicare often do 15% off a £100+ spend, sign up for their emails. I got mine on that offer.
If you look on eBay the resale value is pretty good so I'm seeing it as a bit of an investment to sell on again later. Also, the vista comes with everything. Once you add carrycot, rain covers, insect covers on to the others the price isn't very different.

Mine is in mica .. Which shade has not had this prob? Tks

isisisis Thu 20-Mar-14 16:15:43

Is mica the cream colour? If so I think you've got to expect marks to show. I've got the bright red (is it Denny red?), I'm not careful with it at all. I throw it in & out of the car, across fields, along the canal etc & it still looks really good. I have got mud on it before but it just brushes off when it drys.

I had the mica (silver), no car so it got soaked often and I also washed it and left it to dry in the garden several times, no watermarks at all. Infact it looked great, the best seat fabrics on any buggy we've had

We got a second hand vista - think actually 2 kids had used it. Faded looking seat but has worked beautifully. We replaced the wheels . Can you find a second hand one online?
