Good all terrain pushchair for 2.5 year old

DD needs a new pushchair, she is quite petite, around 22lbs but long. I'd imagine she will use it for the next 1.5 years. We do a lot of walking and lots of it off road.

I don't use public transport but something relatively easy to fold for putting in the car boot. Does anyone have any recommendations? TIA

Out n About Nipper 360

Or, if money no object, something from Mountain Buggy

Second vote for the nipper 360. Bought this as replacement for my useless travel system. Handles well on any terrain, easy to steer even one handed, fairly light, folds easily and reasonably flat, and if needed, the foot rest at the front provides a temporary seat for an older sibling.

Ohh! I have no idea why I didn't think about 360, we have the double version when she was a baby and DS was a young toddler! Fab buggy.

I think my brain is fuzzy from looking at mothercare and similar. All the buggies are more about the pattern and fashion than the practicality. I haven't seen mountain buggy but will have a look, I imagine she will be using buggy for a while yet so will check if it's worth the money.

If you sign up to Kiddicare emails, they send out good discounts, which is how I got my Nipper. It was something like 30% off over £300 or something. I bought a lot of nappies too to get the spend.

Thanks for that, off to have a look smile

The Baby Jogger Elite, Nipper, Bumbleride Indie and TFKs are great off road pushchairs. I also like the Babyzen Zen which has a good fold.

Mountain buggy all the way. We compared off-roadwra for months before settling for the Mountain Buggy Urban Jungle. It was by far the most sturdy and has, so far, managed to get through muddy fields, as well as around shops, for two years. Although DS is a bit younger than your LO, he still has plenty of room and looks comfortable.

I've noticed Mountain Buggies tend to be quite reasonable second hand, and they certainly last well, so this might be an option is you don't want to spen too much.

Another vote for a nipper. We found ours on ebay secondhand for £75. It's been absolutely brilliant.
