    Well... we went into mothercare cause i wanted to buy our first baby grow since getting past the 12 week milestone :thumbup: and having had our 12 weeks scan yesterday i thought it was a lovely thing to do... so we went in and walked to the prams as i still havent seen one i like (or reasonably priced) and ive looked for months... so we were looking around at some of the mothercare ones and i didnt like them etc.. then i noticed the quinnys were on sale! there was an absolutely gorgeous black one... in the sale with £100 off!! they also were giving 10% off if we opened a mothercare plan (its not store credit, for anyone who hasnt heard of it its an interest free way of spreading the payments up until LO is born) so the package of the black quinny with the carry cot that should have been £645 we got for... wait for it..... £385!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :happydance::happydance::happydance: i have always wanted a quinny but they were waaay out of what we wanted to spend so i just stopped looking at them. Then we got the car seat aswel which was £115 and we got £55 off the total cost!!!!! so theres £450 to pay!!!! :happydance::happydance: and thats for a quinny buzz in storm, carrycot and car seat! and we have up until 10 days before LO is due to pay it off :happydance::happydance::happydance: i LOVE it!! so does OH!! he has been sooo uninterested in buying anything for obvious reasons but he was straight away like ''go on shall we go for it??''

    I know its early but it was such a bargain and they have said if anything at all was to happen (touch wood and pray nothing does!!) they will give a full refund. Has anyone else bought this early???

    Oh and i never did buy a baby grow lol!! thought the pram was enough for now!!

    xxxxx

    I don't see any reason not to start buying things once you reach 12 weeks (or earlier if you find a bargain). You were planning to get it at some point anyway and now you have plenty of time to spread out the payments. Sounds like a great deal and its something you love. Congrats!

    Hi

    I haven't really paid too much attention, just yet ;) to prams / travel systems etc but have checked out prices....also just looked at a quinny buzz..very nice!!!

    What is the difference between a 3 wheeler and a 4??

    We got our pram early but only cos it was a bargain on Ebay so we were worried we'd miss out if we didnt get it !! I was about 12 weeks at the time :)


    A 3 wheeler only has 1 wheel at the front and 2 at the back and the 4 wheeler is the more traditional 2 at front, 2 at back style.
    I personally prefer the 4 wheelers as they just look more stable but that's only my opinion as I've used a 3 wheeler before.

    Thank you. I quite like the 4 wheelers. I only ever see 3 wheelers being used by "running" people and since I'm no runner!!

    What do others thinks of 3 wheelers in terms of how easy they are to use / manouvre / pack away etc?? Easier than a 4 wheeler?

    i really liked the 4 wheelers until i saw them today... the 4 wheelers are unbelievably heavy!! compared to the 3 wheels and i found the 3 wheel one easier to manouver so we got the 3 wheel one... we were worried about stability but i found it fine, soo nice to push and a lot lighter than the 4 wheeler (i was adament i was having the 4 wheels at first) .. they were both pretty much the same price but folding them up and lifting them into a boot it was unbelievable the weight difference just having one extra wheel.. so we ordered the 3 wheel version :D xxx

    Thats a seriously good bargain, we bought the Quinny Buzz in 2008 in Apple (gorgeous) when we had our son and paid about £750 for the package!! Its a brilliant pushchair I loved it, but need something for baby and toddler this time so thinking of the Phil & Teds Sport!

    We have the 3 wheeler and its very easy to manouver and folds brilliantly!! I am defiantely not a runner so I can safely say its ok to get if your not sporty!!
