H and I went to have a look at prams at the weekend. Top of my list had been the Mamas & Papas Sola.
When we were in Mothercare we saw the Joie Chrome which is quite similar to the Sola so it ticks off all the things we were looking for. Folds up easily & compactly, easy to manouver, interchangable car seat, carry cot & parent & world facing pushchair.
It is also a couple of hundred pound cheaper than the Sola, plus, If we order it online this week we will get 15% off and ive seen the car seat in Kiddicare at half price so it will work out about half the price!
However I can't find many reviews as this design is new this year. Apparently the Joie brand only came out last year, but the manufactureres have been producing products for other brands for year. The reason they are cheaper is because they are comming straight from the manufacturer! The few reviews I have found have been good, but I thought I would see if anyone here has anything from the Joie range and if so, id love to hear your thoughts on it! Thanks!

We have a car seat from Joie. The Stages one. It's used as a second seat for my parents to use as it rear faces to 18kg. It feels like a really solid seat and I've been impressed with it so far, though touch wood will never put it to the ultimate test. For the money (it was £140) it's a cracking piece of kit. I haven't tried their pushchairs but would definitely give one a go. I saw one in Mothercare last week but didn't test drive as I'm not in the market for a travel system. Very happy with - funnily enough - my Sola!
Hope that's helps somewhat :)

Thanks Stripey, the car seat that goes with this one is Gemm. It's good to know you are happy with what you have from the brand!
It ticks all the boxes and seems like such a bargain, just want to make sure its not too good to be true!
