Wanting to get a new pram for ds.(2 yrs)
Narrowed it down to the techno XT and the cybex topaz.

any views/opinions..?

Im only 4ft 11 and think the XT may to be high (although have tried it..testing in a shop is different to everyday use..), also anyone know how high the m&p one is as can't seem to find handle height.

I'm 5' 2" and the Techno is slightly too high for me. I still love it but am aware of feeling slightly like a child pushing a shopping trolley

Haven't tried the Cybex but I really really like the look of it.

hmm...I can't decide..hmm.

Also love the look of the m&p and their cs tell me the height is adjustable but don't know height..hmm.

Like the techno as well but never had a maclaren and mner's seem to rave about them...

so at 5ft 2 and its slightly high I guess too high for me...<sigh>

i would say it would be too high too, the quest would be better for you, they are my fave maclaren buggy and i think i've just about every one!!

i've currently got apples quest in grey/orange and black xt. im 5'3 and the xt is quite noticeably taller than the quest.

ah right...not noticed the quest..maybe because of colours.? ideally wanted black and I think only found the techno xt..

nicolamumof3 Thu 13-Aug-09 19:38:20

i like bright buggies so i love my apples quest. then i have black xt too so best of both worlds!!

shhhh Thu 13-Aug-09 19:39:28

I would love a bright pram but always end up with a plain coloured one..hmm.grin

these are some of mine...
don't have them all now obviously! but as you can see many are colourful!

i have a cybex Onyx in my frontroom this evening is thats any good...any questions let me know x

def too high, are maclaren doing a ryder model at the moment as it has shorter handles than the xt. I'm 5' and the XT is horrid to push after a little while.

I've heard poor reviews about the cybex but heard they've relaunched it with different handles so may be better?

thanks cargirl smile.
Nicola, you are as bad as me with buying prams grin.

kelly, high is the handle.? looking at m&p they say its adjustable but I can't find the height.
Im short so need somthing fairly it a flimsy pram..? have you seen a maclaren xt to compare to..? seen an xt today but yet to see the m&p one.
