Hi all, my husband and I are looking to find a decent buggy to take on holiday to menorca with us in June. Our little girl will be 8 months when we go. Because I have back problems we need one that will be fairly light and so our usual phil and teds wouldn't suitable, due to plane travel. Were looking to pay around £50-60, and want something that would be compact enough for flights, quite easy on the eye and above all practical!
My husband saw this, and wondered if anyone has one? http://m.tesco.com/mt/direct.tesco.c....210-0634.aspx
I asked the same question not long ago and many people recommended the Petite Star Zia. I bought one from nurseryvalue for £90 (though you can get refurb ones for £60) and am THRILLED with it! I now go out walking with LO 1-2.5 hours every day! I notice the one in your link is also by petite star so I imagine it would be good too though I'm a 3 wheel fan.
We have the Quinny Zapp Xtra which I absolutely love, it's the smallest folding pushchair on the market and so lightweight (around 6 or 7kgs I think!). There's the standard Zapp which looks exactly the same however it doesn't have a reclinable seat! I bought mine from eBay in excellent condition for around £50-£60! HTH
I looked into loads of pushchairs for holidays last year and ended up with the Maclaren XT. It is a bit more expensive but ebay have some good ones. The main reason i bought it is because of it's great sun canopy which means you don't have to faff around with umbrellas, muslins etc. My LO is now 14 months and I use it everyday now, my v expensive icandy is now in the loft! It also lies flat, which is great as my LO quite happily sleeps in it when out and about. They do get chucked around on the plane etc and so far after 3 trips it is holding out well!
I would also recommend a sunshine kids ray shade. It is a factor 50 hood extender which just ties on to the handles of your pushchair. It fits both my Mothercare My4 and my Zia. I shall link to it properly when I am not on the pad.
