    I went to a local country shop and the chap there recommended 'ride on lawn mower slime' !!!!

    occasionally the tire goes a bit flat, and I have to pump it up, but I've never had a tire go completely flat since having it done ( over 4 years ago )

    I had slime put in- no good, still got a puncture but was a year or so later. Not bothering again. I carry a bike pump in my buggy to get me home, and keep a spare inner tube at home for over-night repairs ready for next day.

    Brilliant.

    I now have visions of a pushchair with 28" wheels fitted for rugged cross-country tyres. The 'monster truck' of all baby buggies.

    I'd be very impressed if she had a schoolie balanced on each stunt peg.
