    Just had to share that my Oyster Pram/pushchair combo arrived today! Had lots of fun putting it together/taking it apart and generally feeling like a little girl again 'playing' dolls!

    Thank you to all the ladies who helped me make my mind up to buy it xxx

    We ordered our Oyster travel system at the weekend! So excited, but we're not going to pick it up for a while yet. We got the black chassis and a claret colour pack and a maxi cosi cabriofix carseat. I love it and can't wait to have it at home :)

    I got the silver chassis with the tomato colour pack :) what car seats did you guys get? We got the Britax Babysafe SHR II thinking we didn't need adaptors but you need the height adaptors to go with this car seat.

    i read this too when mine turned up....i never got told i needed height adapters when i tested it out at babies r us.

    The lady said it didnt need any adapters with the britax seat....is it something that will make a difference to performance?? im confused if i really need them x (my oyster came a few weeks back now, i love it!!)

    You don't "need" the height adaptors but without any adaptors, the car seat will sit low. Even with the car seats that need the buggy adaptors, it's nice to have baby sitting up higher.

    You do need the height adaptors on the SHR II but not the normal SHR. The SHR II has side impact protection that stick out at the sides so it wont fit directly into the oyster chassis without the height adaptors.

    We went to babies r us too and they didn't tell us we needed the height adaptors :dohh:

    Thanks babyhopes, that information wasn't given to me at our local dealer. Was brought up as only to bring baby seat up closer to you.

    thanks again for the correction
