Well here’s the lowdown on three great pushchair / prams which can deal with pretty much anything you throw at them.

Similarities Between The Pushchairs

Each of these three pushchairs can have a Maxi Cosi Carseat attached.  Although only the Vista includes the adaptors as standard.

They all look stunning and will turn heads, the Cameleon is much more common nowadays than a few years ago, so the jaw dropping effect has worn off somewhat.  However, the ability to mix and match the different colour packs allows you to individualise the pushchair exactly how you want.

The Oyster has a similar setup, you could buy a different colour pack every few months and pretend you have a new stroller!

The Vista comes in a selection of colours that are slightly understated and classy.  Of the three it’s the one I would select for my family if I were choosing.  The option of adding the ‘rumble seat’ gives versatility and the colours are more my style.

But each of the three is an excellent pushchair and would do a great job.
