    If it is in good condition I'd snap it up! £50 is a bargain (unless it is a wreck). You can even sell it for a profit if you don;t like it (but most people love it!)

    Looks good condition ( from a nice area) lol
    Yeah I've just had a quick look online at reviews and seems good. I know that I will need to get a double buggy . Going to see it first thing in the morning.

    Hi. I have an out and about double and am really pleased with it. Had a Graco previously which was very heavy to push - this one is so easy I can push it one handed! Large wheels mean I can go over fields and I could still get out in the snow. Possible down side could be tyres can get punctures, but you can get some foam from bike shop to put in the inner tubes and I was told to make sure tyres don't get too worn down. Apparently you can get 'heavy duty tyres' but I've just used normal ones. The only negative thing I have found about the pushchair is the basket underneath is too small to hold all the things my after school children turn up with.

    I also love my nipper 360. It's not heavy and easy to push, that does sound like an absolute bargain, you won't regret it.

    Check the width of your front door/doors/gate and take the narrowest measurement with you, as well as a measuring tape so you can measure the widest part of this buggy - just to make sure you can get it in your door.

    I was offered one years ago free - it was lovely but I just couldn't get it in my front door. I even went as far as getting bits hacked out of the door frame, but it just wouldn't go. I therefore sadly passed it on (free) to someone else.

    I went for a long front-to-back double, which is really heavy to push (to get it started) but I'm so used to it now that I love it. (My front door is shockingly narrow - I even have to part collapse a double MacLaren to get through the door.)

    That's great advice about the foam/heavy duty tyres. I have a friend who uses a Nipper and I've twice seen how awful her buggy is to push on a school run with a puncture. It goes from being really light to push, to being like pushing a wall with x number of kids sitting on it.

    Hope that helps,

    L

    I love mine, the seats are quite reclined even in their upright position and one of my little ones doesn't like sitting in it for that reason but on every other point its fab. I have used mine for my own children and now do two school runs a day with a walk through the woods to get there with 2 2 year olds sitting in it and a 3 year old on a buggy board and its still light and easy to push. For £50 id snap it up quick!

    The first version of Nippers had seats that didn't sit quite upright, but they've fixed that on the newer versions. You can also buy a set of EVA (non-tyre) wheels if that suits you better than air filled tyres from their online shop. I don't drive, so my buggy is like my 'childminding car' and I'm really pleased with my Nipper and how easy it is to push.

    Mine is too wide for front door, so if lo's have gone to sleep I just unpop a back wheel, tip the buggy at an angle to fit through door and pop wheel back on, normally though just as I do that the sleeping child wakes up!

    I paid £50 for mine and the rain cover isn't in a good condition but still a bargain for the flexibility it gives me - I sometimes sit a 3 year old on the front foot plate if we are in a hurry and the pavement is flat.
