we bought the chicco caddy to take to Australia for a three week holiday and it was brilliant - we tend to also use it a lot at home - lighter and easier than taking the pram.

It came with its own carry case, sunhood and rain cover. I bought it through tesco.com baby and toddler warehouse. The carry case was a godsend. Made it wasy to put down and have it stowed on the plane. We had a sling for the baby whilst we were dealing with luggage and such. The buggy could then be slung over the shoulder and away we went. Also gave it some protection in the luggage hold - we had four flights in total.

It went everywhere - through the parks, over the beach, she slept in it at times and she loves it too. We take it walking through the fields here - and it copes.

The other accessories were handy too - the raincover folds right down and so can be stored in the stroller tray. It was also good value for money as all the accessories were included.

Hope that helps.

I loved my funky volo except the wheels have now gone all wonky, like a supermarket trolley with a mind of its own. Feel a bit disillusioned with it. Also no sunshade, v imp for hols.

We are getting the ultra-leight Volo for our holiday. We have a seperate sunshade already which we can use for it. Got quite a bit of positive experiences on her from other mumsnetters.
