Not getting Spin :(


I went today too see the spin in action. I do like it but it's not for us. Spinning thing is good but how often you really would spin a pram... And bad thing is also that car seat does not come with base. I did like My4 more and I think we are getting that instead of Spin. My4 is more compact and practical in my opinion.

Hi
I bought the mothercare spin pushchair in sept 09. And i LOVE it, just like u all i went into mothercare to buy something totally diff but as soon as i wa shown the spin i fell in love and called my husband at work, made him finish early and come take a look lol. He loved it ( boys and their toys!!) we bought it their and then.
My boys just over 3 months now and i have used it in pram mode until now, its so easy to put together and very light to push. I used to leave it up in my living room and use it instead of a moses basket downstairs whilst he slept during the day. It does recommend not to use in pushchair mode till 6 months but my boy was gettin bored looking at the sky so for the first time this week i used it in pushchair mode and he loved it, the footmuff is soooo cosy and beacuse u have 3 positions i use it on middle settin when he wants to look about and with one easy lift of button on back i can move it to lowest setting when he sleeps and its not totally horizontal but just right for a sleeping baby to be comfy.
The car seat is great and so handy when out on short visits...it clicks into base with ease...and really compact when pushing around dept stores!!
Overall i love it and made the right choice...had it over 3 months and still not seen any other mum with it in our village so feel privlidged lol...
Also whilst i remeber...u get raincover with it which fits on quickly and easily, has a zip half way'ish so rest od pram can still be protected but open where u can see baby. Mothercares own car seat rain cover (10) fits the car seat perfectly.
Sorry to go on about it but just love it....hope this helps

I loved my Spin at first.
Now 3 months on I'm selling it.
It really is quite heavy on a daily basis and even though the chassis looks like it folds small, once you've put the pram part on the top in the boot it barely fits, and you have to take that off and put it on the floor to use your two hands to lift the chassis out of the boot each time you take it in or out.
The pram apron doesn't fit properly and the liner is baggy.
The whole thing is surprisingly rickety if you walk properly at speed - not cruising around shops but properly along pavements.
I can't believe now that we paid so so much for that when we could've got a proper pram that lasts longer and had a seperate pram body.
Because of these issues I've ended up using my babycarrier all the time which is nice I've only used my Spin 6 times since mid-January!

I'm selling my Spin and getting an Oyster.

If anyone still want's it though (I know I wouldn't of been disuaded as I was convinced it was the bees knees) then contact me

I had a few issues with my spin the basket mainly is very small not good for a family without a car, also didn't fit in my friends mini cooper or fiatt 500 I did like that nobody else had it in my area but its becoming popular now. Also the chassis is wider at the badck causing some problems with some shop doors and small shops xxxxxxxxxxx

I work in mothercare and got the spin a year ago I LOVE it and still use it now it was on a bargain offer when I bought it tho. If it wasn't id have prob got the my4! The spin part IS very handy if baby is facing away and starts crying for any reason. I've got a Peugeot 206 and it fits in the boot fine! I don't think think there are many pram style travel systems that fold smaller to be honest as u have to take the seat unit off of them all apart from the silvercross 3D but that doesn't go into parent facing as a pushchair. Everyone suits something different tho

What are u looking for your pushchair to do? I could recommend ones for u to look at as pushchairs are my speciality
