    Just to solve an ongoing debate with my husband we wanted to know what people call a pram/buggie???
    My DH is from Stockport and they call them trolley's whereas I am from cheshire and we call them prams or buggies!!!
    To make matters worse he just read a post relating to where mums put their babies to sleep during the day and pounced on the reply by Amy's Mum who mentioned her daughter falls asleep in her trolley sometimes...well he's now bouncing round the living room ecstatic having noticed that Amy's Mum is also from Stockport...can I win this battle???? :roll:

    Gotta say it seems to be a Manchester sort of thing to call them trolleys, i have 2 friends from around that area and thats what they call them.

    To me a trolley is what you put your shopping in!! :D

    i have to agree with jo, a trolley is something you push around the supermarket!!! lol

    for me it's a pram whilst i've got the carrycot attached to it, and a pushchair once i've stopped using the carrycot and attached the pushchair seat thingy!

    Im from Saltcoats and I call my big 2 in 1 a pram but my wee foldaway mothercare job the buggie.

    Never heard a pram called a trolley but I heard my dad call my pram a few choice words when he was trying to fold it down....
