I just want something at a cheap 'try it' price as it's been a while

I'm gutted ds1 has broken one side of the foot rest on the pulse. It doesn't stay up now. Love my pulse.

Nicola, we live in Cumbria so a long way away from London. Gonna take us about 6 hours to get there. We are staying Monday - Thursday so we get 2 days in the park. Does it have an area where they kids can get wet?

nicolamumof3 Sun 02-Aug-09 17:51:55

yes it does tho we didn't go there, you can take swimmers for them to change into if its a hot day, its just sort of showers and sprays and stuff i seem to remember?

Terry's got friends in Cumbria not so far from my inlaws in lancashire. i know the drive well.

claret1980 Sun 02-Aug-09 17:54:01

Yeah all the windy roads we have and the hills! I'm in Barrow so near the animal park. It takes ages to get anywhere else though.

nicolamumof3 Sun 02-Aug-09 17:55:45

not far, they are in Morecambe.

I want a First Wheels City Twin pram. With a carry cot attachment.

Not much, really...

FlyMeToDunoon Sun 02-Aug-09 18:56:32

I would like a final pushchair.
I would like to be at peace with pushchairs.

nicolamumof3 Sun 02-Aug-09 18:58:41

I am at peace. i've 'come home' to my favourite!!!! grin some days i miss my nipper but luka is much happier in upright maclaren seat.

sweetkitty Sun 02-Aug-09 18:59:29

I want a Maclaren XT in pink and chocolate

sweetkitty Sun 02-Aug-09 19:08:47

Is it the XLR that is pink and chocolate don't want an XLR, why is life never simple?

All I want is an umbrella fold, good sized seat, decent harness, bumper bar, raincover that isn't the size of a circus tent, storage pockets and a decent sized basket, easy to put up and down, decent sized wheel, is it too much to ask (sob)

nicolamumof3 Sun 02-Aug-09 19:20:08

well sounds like an XT but without bumper bar. personally i hate bumper bars as just a faff with toddlers. Does it have to be umbrella? as what about a BJCM?

XT's only come in grey or black. you can get techno classics secondhand in different colours?

GirlsAreLoud Sun 02-Aug-09 19:23:54

Hello ladies, sorry I don't really belong here but you are all so knowledgeable I wondered if you could give me your opinion on the out n about nipper 360 for a toddler and newborn?

I'm also wondering hwo small it folds as would want it in the boot of a pOlo.

Deemented Sun 02-Aug-09 19:30:01

SweetKitty - have you thought about an Obaby at all? Only thng it doesn't have is a bumper bar, but it's a great sturdy buggy, imo.

nicolamumof3 Sun 02-Aug-09 19:46:51

Girls....i had a single nipper and LOVED it!!! was fab, unfortunately my then 22m old developed a hatred for the laid back seat and i had to go back to a maclaren. that is the only 'fault' i could find with it. Adored it so much considered getting a double myself even tho i'd sold my p&t and sworn my doubles days were over! they are amazingly light. lovely to push. Fabrics don't come off (easily) to wash and the laid back seat only negatives i could find to my single. huge hood. large seat, good fold.

buggyjo Sun 02-Aug-09 19:55:35

hi, this is for claret,im a lerker and have been for ages,i read your goun to lego land and stopping of in asda,theres a tesco in dedworth(the other side of windsor)which is easyer than trying to get to adsa and its on your way to

5inthebed Sun 02-Aug-09 20:02:32

Nicola, I do have the box for the bjcm grin.

I'm thinking of getting a nipper instead of a mac quest now. Are they easy to fold?

nicolamumof3 Sun 02-Aug-09 20:07:27

not as easy as a mac, deffo a two handed job so no good for bus. but once you've got the hang of it they're ok, i prob only ever folded mine 4 times in 3m!!

5inthebed Sun 02-Aug-09 20:24:27

Well, since I'll not need to do it when DS2 starts reception in September, I was thinking of getting one. Will have to have a rethink.

Really, I must be mad to sell the BJCM, I really do love it. Maybe I'll just keep it hmm

nicolamumof3 Sun 02-Aug-09 20:47:03

i'd recommend nipper whole heartedly 5in if you do alot of walking its fab, so light, one of my all time faves grin

GirlsAreLoud Sun 02-Aug-09 20:55:36

Thank you for that Nicola, I think I may give the nipper a go.

nicolamumof3 Sun 02-Aug-09 21:00:40

i would, i would seriously consider one if i ever needed another double.

5inthebed Sun 02-Aug-09 21:00:58

I'm thinking about the air tyres. I do loads of walking grin

I hate selling prams, makes me so tetchy!

nicolamumof3 Sun 02-Aug-09 21:06:29

me too, had a result with the triumph as it went locally. im so glad im done with it now.the nipper glides along its so light you will be spoiled forever grin

FlyMeToDunoon Sun 02-Aug-09 21:27:20

My Infinity is on ebay at £80 bin so if it goes it goes.
I can feel the XT slipping away at this rate. Nothing is selling!
So annoying.
