    Im currently on my 3rd buggy in 4 months :blush:

    I have had the Herbie, Chicco Liteway and im currently on the Petite Star Zia.

    My DP is 6ft 5'' and not 1 buggy i have bought reaches his man arms, have you wonderful ladies got any suggestions on a buggy that will 'fit' him so to speak.

    Im 5ft 2'' so all buggys fit me.

    I have a Mothercare My Choice and it has an extendable handle....I love it, it's like the Mothercare version of the I-candy Apple but nicer in my opinion:thumbup:

    Do you mean something like a stroller? I've got an OBaby Atlas as a small holiday buggy and it fits my OH, he's 6'4" - was a bargain at only £60! Not sure of you would want something a bit more luxurious that could lie completely flat though - it does recline a fair way but it doen't go completely flat.

    We have the Bugaboo Bee and my hubby is 6'7 and he says the handle reaches him perfectly!

    Hi, I'm new around here :wave:
    I came on this forum with the same problem.. lots of prams tried, none what I hoped for. So far: Chicco Trio Enjoy Evolution (sort of a bad quality buggy, looks tired and used after a few months), Brevi B-lite (too much effort in pushing it), Quinny Zapp (this one I still have, it's a nice buggy, sweet, but my little one cannot sleep in it.. good for short walks), Quinny Speedi (bulky, seat uncomfortable, difficult to fold..) :wacko:

    I won't give up, still looking for the perfect one.. What I wish most from it is for my kid to SLEEP in it.. So it needs to be well padded, comfortable, back-rest to lie flat or close to flat, wide sun canopy.. You think Maclaren XLR would do the job?

    Thank you very much for any suggestion :flow:

    No, you should go on about it, any good pram deserves that :winkwink: I read your other post about it, and now I'm pretty determined to buy it, after reading a lot of good reviews and seeing the videos about it. Sounds perfect.. Thanks! :flower:
