Advantages Easily adapts to age change
Disadvantages Heavy bulky frame and lack of storage
Like lots of expectant parents, me and my partner spent hours deliberating between the overwhelming selection of pushchairs. In fact it's the one thing we couldn't agree on and was left almost too late, we only bought ours with days to spare!We were lucky enough to have the huge Kiddicare base within minutes from our home. Kiddicare is one of the most comprehensive online baby retailors and their flagship and only store in Peterborough is like a baby Ikea! It has an entire floor dedicated to prams and pushchairs so we spent hours in here testing the prams and trying to decide which catered for our needs the best.
As first time parents we had that 'glow' and went a little mad buying things for our bundle of joy. I think thats the way when it's your first! We didn't have a price range in mind for our pram but we did have our own specification. We wanted to get a package deal that included our babies first car seat, we needed something that had storage space and we also needed something that would work for a baby and suit a toddler too as I didn't think I wanted to buy a new pushchair after a year or so. So although we weren't restricted by price we did rule out many prams due to these things.I had a pre-set idea in my head from the beginning, I had falled in love with a Maxi Cosi pram, and I had also fallen deeply in love with the I-Candy range of prams. In my mind we were having one of those but somehow by the time you added everything up with the I-Candy you were looking at well over £1000 for everything you needed as nothing came with the frame and had to be purchased seperately. Although we didn't have a budget after months I still couldn't bring myself to justify that money for a pram, no matter how beautiful! So after months the I-Candy was out.
Slowly I began to go off the Maxi Cosi too and I began to get a bit worried I wasn't going to fnd one. The Quinny display at Kiddicare was huge but I hated three wheelers! By my seventh month I thought I should at least test one and so I did and instantly I clicked with it and realised it would be ideal!We finally settled on the Quinny Buzz 3 by the time I was 8 months pregnant. We bought our pram for £700 but we got a great package for that. We got the Quinny Buzz 3 frame and seat, a Maxi Cosi Pebble car seat, a Quinny Dreami Carrycot, Raincover and Footmuff. The only thing we did have to purchase seperately was the shopping basket to attach underneath which cost £18. Considering the car seat retailed for £130, the Dreami Carrycot for £150 etc we had saved over £150 by the time we bought the package rather than individual bits and pieces. We also didn't need to wait long for delivery which was great.
My son is now one and we still use this pram and after a year of using it I feel ready to review it. The Quinny Buzz 3 was the best possible choice for us and has been a very useful and ideal pram in many ways. Firstly the ease of putting it up and down. I've not come across any pram or pushchair that is as easy as this to get up and down.
