I need a new little pushchair for keeping in the car. I have narrowed it down to 3:

Does anyone have any experience of any of them?

As you can see I am looking to spend about £50 - dont mind a little more if I get accessories with it ie footmuff or that. The Petite Star doesnt come with a raincover, so thats a little more or the package is £64 that includes raincover and footmuff.

The second link did not work - 'page not found'

like the first one though :)

Have changed the link so it should work now!:thumbsup:

All links working for me.

I think the petite star is the same buggy one of my mums has - it's only a few months old and already on the second rain cover and the black cover on the handles has split in several places and looks a mess.

It is fairly lightweight but I don't find it very comfy to push or that easy to manoeuvre.

No experience of the other two - sorry

hi i have the swift stroller from toys r us for my dd and find it easy to push and lightweight. the raincover has split but thats due to dd kicking it.

i've had it about 11 months and will be keeping it even though dd prefers to walk.

I'd go with the mamu purely because their seats are lovely and wide and comfy :)

Have reserved the Mamu one in my local Argos - going to pick it up tomorrow!!!:clapping:

A friend I spoke to earlier has it too and swears by it.

Before you go to get it have a look on the net for the Chicco Winter Londoner - I got mine from Argos for under £50 last year and have seen it around and about in various places for that price since and it includes a cozy toes - I love mine - its my in car one - Its had loads and loads of use and lies really quite flat - I've had children sleep for hours in it in the house and garden too. -and its still like new too!!!! It won't cost you anything to take a look I often reserve stuff in argos and then find them cheaper elsewhere and just don't turn up.

I've got the Mamu and had it for about 2 years - lastest really well including trips through woods and across muddy fields with the dog - rain cover etc all has held up well. Definately recommend it.
