General Review

This has been a great stroller for us. We take lots of long walks and our little girl has been very comfortable to take a long nap while we walk. She can completely lay out in it. The steering is marvelous! If you have uneven sidewalks, you'll love the smooth big tires. We have gotten tons of compliments on her stroller, even from non-parents.

The Pros

Gorgeous and unusual.

The Cons

Too big for tight stores when shopping.

This pram has been fantastic!

I LOVE THIS PRAM! It has been so faithful - being used nearly every day for 2.5 years - I've never had a prob! It is great for walking, even on dirt tracks and feels safe and sturdy and is easy to steer.

The Pros

*It's size and weight make it feel safe and sturdy.
*Very easy to steer
*Love having bubs facing me which is unique to prams
* Nice looking classic pram

The Cons

* Very heavy - couldn't fit it in the car without taking wheels off so gave up and just used it for walking.
*It can only take a toddler and baby for a short time before they outgrow it.
* Some of the press studs snapped off
* The hood thingo occassionally needs tightening with a screwdriver but not a big deal.

We purchased this pram for walks around our community. We have dirt/stone roads which makes for a very bumpy ride. This pram glides over our roads and our son doesn't get bounced around. We purchased it when he was about 2 months old, he's going to be 2 soon and he loves this stroller better then the graco we have. The large flat lying seat is perfect for changing baby while out and about instead of using the germ infested public changing tables.

The Pros

Large roomy seat.
Suspension with 12" bicycle tires.
4x4 turning wheels.

The Cons

Quite heavy and bulky for everyday in and out of car use.

Great newborn pram

After months of searching for a pram i decided upon this one. it looks great, comes with many accessories and is a very sturdy, safe pram. baby would sleep for hours in the pram as it has so much space to stretch out.
now that baby is getting a bit older (4 months) i am hating it. too much of a hassle to get in and out of the car. the seat recline only has 3 heights - flat, almost flat and fully upright (baby hates it). i'm now thinking of selling this pram and getting a 3 wheeler. this pram is fantastic for long walks but not great for shopping trips.

The Pros

looks great
steers like a dream
very spacious and comfy for baby
fantastic accessories
height adjustable handle

The Cons

way too heavy
takes up too much bootspace
too big for aisles at shops
basket not deep enough and shopping falls out
nothing to hang shopping on handle (i spent $30 on a pram caddy only to discover the handles are too wide to attach it)

Love it!

my pram has never had any faults... touch wood! I love it for what everyone else has said, fabulous steering, suspension, roomy, and extra handle height since i am six foot tall... a brilliant walking pram but very large when folded down... luckily i have a large wagon but if i didn't it would be such a pain i'd have to just buy another car... not another pram lol

The Pros

great steering, suspension,
easy to adjust everything
comfy ride for bub
large but luxurious pram
looks nice

The Cons

large when folded
wide wheel base

Nice Pram

Overall I have loved this pram as has heaps of room for bubs, can get to huge shopping basket while it's fully reclined without waking baby. Extra large hood is great. Great looking pram

The Pros

Beautiful to push
Great Suspension
huge sunhood
Adjustable handle
Heaps of room for bubs

The Cons

*Very large and very heavy-I had an emergency c-section with alot of problems after and it was 6 months before I could lift myself to put in the car.
*Needs 4 reclining positions and the 2nd one isn't much above flat but the 3rd is a 90 degree angle
* Handle can make hands grossly sweaty on warm days-my Maclaren stroller handles do not
* After 8 months of use-only one footpaths, shopping centres etc, the brake/steering mechanism broke and had to be sent back. We ended up being given a new pram and just this week it has happened again! after another 12 months but doesn't get alot of use as I use the stroller more now. And of course the warranty has run out! I am not happy as I wanted to use it for baby no 2 but have to buy a new pram!

Quality English nanny looking Pram

I hadnt had to buy a pram for 13yrs! so tended to look at the solid ones that I remember were all that was around back then!

I bought my Bertini when my Son was 3 months older after settling for a cheaper copy version( and hating it and selling it 2 months later)

Ive always loved the Old fashioned English Nanny looking prams and this was quality at its best!

Its roomy,comfy,and is very quality looking.
I had all extras,sleeping bag,carrycot etc, all beautifully padded.
Large nappy bag also doubles as a changing mat as it has a removable pad

The only drawback is at 17kgs,not easy putting in and out of the car if your doing a few different shopping stints.Think this is fairly obvious though when you are looking to purchase it.

Fantastic walking Pram

As a comparison to the latest trendy bugaboo etc, theres plenty of room for shopping! underneath, easy to access and if youve got a large boot to accomodate the pram,it doesnt have to go into 2 parts to get it in!

Switching from forward to rearward facing is simple to do, just a matter of lifting off the bassinett and turning it around.

Would of easily lasted till my son was 4(hes now 2) but time to move onto a stroller(Yuk)

Ive always been into Prams,thats just my thing,like how some men are into cars, so Im dying to see some reviews for the new Stokke that your slowly starting to see around.
I would say my general observation will be, theres no room for shopping and without having a split handle, no way any bags can even go on the handles

The Pros

Beautiful looking Pram
Comfy,Plenty of Room
Only 4 wheel steerable Pram on market
Made really solidly

The Cons

Heavy to put in and out of car frequently

love this pram

I love this pram to bits, we live on a farm and walk to school over grass and down a dirt track, steers like a dream, it is a great walking pram, but too heavy for lifting in and out of my 4x4

The Pros

easy to steer, great on dirt roads, very stable comfy ride

The Cons

too heavy to lift and doesnt fit through normal checkouts

my mum calls it "the Rolls Royce"

I loved this pram the second that i saw it! I originally wanted an Emmaljunga pram but there wasn't a model that had a steering mechanism, unlike the bertini. What also grabbed my attention was the cocoon for baby, the tire pump that attaches to the tray under the carriage, the adjustable handlebar, the storm cover(that covers the entire pram, not one bit of the fabric gets wet!), the stability of the four wheels and the hood which can be pulled all the way over for privacy.
It is a very spacious pram on the interior, I liked knowing that baby had plenty of room. On many occasions, when I have been out, I have changed a nappy or two! It has a three point recline so if baby fell asleep sitting up, i could lay her back down with little disturbance. The carriage is also reversible for when baby is older.
I also have purchashed the toddler seat and a parasole that clips onto any part of the pram.
The steering mechanism is fantastic! Feels like a three wheeleer, but more stable. It is also ideal for walking/exercise, the suspension is a dream, not rough and rocky for baby.

The Pros

Four-wheel steering for smaller turning area.
Suspension and pneumatic tyres give a smooth ride.
Height-adjustable handle.
Optional toddler seat available.
Wheels easily removed and replaced when placing in smaller boots.
Cocoon can be removed so as not to wake baby.
Stability of a four-wheeler.
Large stowage basket underneath.

The Cons

the press studs on the storm cover needed to be repaced, a couple of then were too tight and snapped off, but were quickly sent off and replaced.

will only fit through disabled aisle in supermarkets. can be inconvenient at times, and people think you are pushing in.
