Uppababy Vista Pushchair, Ella Jade
When choosing our pushchair we were undecided between this and another, slightly more expensive make. We decided to go for this one and save ourselves a bit of cash as it came with so much as standard like the car seat adaptors, UV sun visors and rain covers.
We have not been disappointed, the UV sun visors are brilliant, a couple of my friends really struggle with the sun umbrellas they have on their buggies and so many have commented on how good ours is. Also the basket on this is so big, it's really handy. And we have tested it to the max, changing bags, shopping, coats all fit in easily.
The uppababy is very easy to put together and fold up and is a fairly good weight - comparable to others on the market. We live at the top of a hill and it's not too heavy to push up it. Also it's big enough that I think we will use it for a long time yet.
Our little one decided at 3 months that he didn't like being in the carry cot when out and about so I'm glad this had come as standard and we had not paid extra for it as it didn't get much use!
I love our uppababy it gets lots of use both on and off road and what's great is just how many comments we've had from others about how practical it is. Would highly recommend!

So pleased with this!
We visited John Lewis with the intention of purchasing another well known make of pushchair but were given a demo of this by a helpful sales advisor. We found it good value as the quoted price comes with all the extras such as rain covers, car seat adapters, etc which all add up with other makes. We have used it across heaths, hills and in town centres and it handles beautifully. Very light and easy to manoeuvre with one hand plus a large shopping basket to boot. Only niggle really is that it is difficult to access the basket when using the carrycot but the positives far outweigh this. Our son has slept happily in the carrycot on various trips from birth and the integrated UV shade is great for cutting out noise and light when he needs a nap. We have a small car so I take the back wheels off to fit it in the boot but this has never felt an issue and is easy to accomplish. All in all we're very pleased and would definitely recommend.

We actually have the Taylor (navy) colour only available in shops but this was a close second. The vista is a great pram - I did loads of research and living in London was worried it was too big but am so pleased I got this one over smaller products. It fits down the aisle of London buses, has a very small turning circle, deals with stairs well and keeps baby asleep, and the baby sits up high. Handlebars adjust easily for my husband and I (he's tall, I'm not). Vista also comes with all the required extras (eg car seat adapters, rain covers, carrycot). Carrycot was great for sleeping when away and is very cosy so once the baby was about 3 weeks she loved it and slept beautifully. It is big so when they are tiny they probably feel a little lost but apparently this is the case in most carrycots. At 4 months our baby is in the seat because she wants to see more, but it reclines right back so she seems to sleep as well as in the carrycot. Great suspension. Collapses well, whilst heavier than some, I can lift it (but rarely have to) and feels stable when I load nappy bag, handbag and coats on. Basket fits a weeks groceries too. Talking to others with different prams, I'm convinced this one is the best on the market. Very glad with the decision to go with the Vista.
