Joolz Day (NOT M&P version)
Firstly, forget the 'old' Mamas & Papas licenced version and the infamous M&P after-care (lack) service.
The Joolz Day is simply excellent. Outselling Bugaboo in Holland (both products are Dutch) last year and now in the UK in selected independent stockists (No Department Stores!) the product is refined and set to take 2011 dominance against some of the established brands.
We saw it in our local store (they sell Bugaboo, iCandy, Stokke etc) and we fell in love and purchased on the spot. 2 year warranty with a local stockist we know if we have a problem (which we doubt) we can get it resolved quickly. The product itself takes the usual Maxi Cosi units, has a carry cot that can actually be used for overnight use (not the case with Bugaboo or iCandy - read their manuals!) and with the extending leg rest easily the longest seat unit on the market if required.
A footmuff that looks like it will actually fit a child over 12 months (Hmm, Peach anyone?!) and the styling of the Silver or Black frame is simple but effective.
A couple of ways to fold, with or without the seat and no problems at all. Quick release wheels (yes, release, not fall off - put them on properly!) a simple but effective cup holder, a nursery bag that actually hangs inside the handles and pneumatic tyres for comfort. FACT: Air tyres are better all round for a child comfort, yes you can get a puncture but with correct pressure this should be rare and at the end of the day is no different to the kids bike you will be buying for your child in 2 years anyway!
Priced below iCandy and Bugaboo, quality up with them both and Stokke, it's going to be a fine (Joolz) Day!
