    Hi Ladies,

    As most of you know I have been having a bit of a pram dilemma due to lack of fundage and not wanting to spend £400 on a brand new system so have been looking at second hand. However I am just having a browse on babies r us and saw this:

    http://www.toysrus.co.uk/Babies-R-U...in-Bear-and-Friends(0100786)?searchPosition=0

    I LOVE it! Looks awesome, has everything I want and the price is pretty reasonable for brand new! Obviously I am going to go to the store and have a play with it to see how it handles etc but does anyone have one of these or know anyone who does? Just wondering if it is actually as good as it looks...?!

    H xx

    Hiiiiii! Personally, I LOVED this until I went to see it in store. It looks like such a lovely colour online but instore it looks kind of grey and dull, not particularly pretty for you or baby! I am also on a budget and was shown another one whilst I was in store which I ended up taking as just fell in love with it. It's a Silver Cross and when I got home I had a quick peak at their website and saw that they had loads of other lovely ones nice and affordable. This might help xx

    I looked at this when I first started budgeting but I think there have been some not so good reviews and there are a lot of others out there in the same kind of price range with better reviews. But if you go and try it it might be perfect for you.

    I've got mine second hand only because I knew who sold i and it was only 4 months old. I bought a quinny buzz with everything that goes with it (carrycot and maxi cosi pebble seat) and saved a good few hundred (got it for £300). So I fell lucky. Ebay has lots on offer but its a bit dodgy buying without trying. There;s loads of deals on gumtree but it depends how you feel about second hand.

    Its a big minefield!!!

    Graco do do very good shopping baskets, but bulkier

    Have you looked on ebay under babystyle oyster? Not the max the std one
    There are loads for real bargain prices and for 40 quid new , there are loads second hand too you can get new colour packs to change seat liner, hood etc colour. You can get pram carrycot too, worth havibg a look i was going to get before i found mine for 295, came to 320 in end
