    I walk everywhere with her atm, and apparently these can be used for a long time. I known someone who used one with her toddler and there was enough room for them to lie down and sleep in it. I'd love one of the old classics like that one though :cloud9: the new ones don't look at nice, especially the wheels...

    its lovely - looks really roomy and comfy and I can see why it can be used for a long time. At least it won't depreciate in value!! Good luck persuading OH :)

    I used to have a minature one of them when i was a little girl so obviously it was the first pram i looked at when i got pregnant but OH said it wasn't practical enough.

    IM sure you could just beg and say it would last ages lol

    my lil sis had one of these 20yrs ago!!

    I know when i had Jack, i had a proper pram, not a travel system type thing, and i got LOADS of comments saying how lovely it was to see a baby in a proper pram! Unfortunately i had to sell it when he out grew if due to lack of space, but id like something similar for baby #2. I love PP's wicker pram! Thats to die for! x

    I had one of them when i was a baby, it got passed about and used for about 8 different kids. You used to be able to get a chair that sits over the top for toddlers. My middle brother wouldent use that so mam just used to put a blanket in the shopping bit and hed lie in that.

    my mum and dad bought our pram and i was trying to convince them that i needed one!! and when #2 eventually comes along, you wouldnt have to buy a double buggy cos you can get seats for the top!!
