Although quite heavy if you are pushing around a toddler, the pliko pramette is the perfect all round pram. I have 3 children (number 4 on the way) and have always bought Mamas & Papas prams & buggies & rate them above any other make, either bought new or used.
Pramettes are great if you like to chop & change your prams, you can just keep 1 chassis & exchange the covers & hood, there is also a great choice of covers & spares on ebay or they are available direct from M+P (but at silly prices!)
The pramette has every function you need, adjustable height handles, multi position footrest & back rest, including lie flat, floating 5 point harness so older babies can move around in safety in the buggy, swivel or fixed wheels, large basket, umbrella fold, built in car seat adapters (which also accept the navetta carrycot), bumper bar etc...
I have travelled on a few holidays with pliko p3's & pramettes & so far i have never encountered a problem with baggage handlers throwing them around (unlike this year when i used a hauck 3 wheeler & ended up with a buckled front wheel). They are very sturdy, safe & if they can take my 2 year old thrashing around in one they can take anything! i use a small buggy at the mo as my toddler likes to walk everywhere but have recently bought 2 pramettes, 1 in afternoon tea on a white 'pure' chassis for when the baby arrives & 1 for when my parents take my son on holiday next month, he will be nearly 3 year old but know i can rely on him sleeping & being comfortable in it when having the odd nap......besides its 'oldie' proof, my parents are useless at putting up & down prams but there fine with this.
The european (and worldwide) name for M+P is Peg perego, they make the same models as M+P but the colours are a lot better, more brighter & there are more accessory options (such as snack/play tray, car seat footmuffs, navetta carrycots & 2 different size changing bags)
