Thanks for all the advice everyone,

The baby is due on 23rd December (great timing, i know!). I've checked out the universally awful reviews for the luna on reviewnet, so that's probably put me off it. We might just have to go for something that needs a seat down for a few months, and a baby bjorn-type thing is also an option for the first while.

Thanks again.

We've looked at the Jane Carrera which seems to fit - has anyone had one of these?

Silver Cross POP fits in the boot without the parcel shelf, you have to remove the front wheels though which are quick release, had a Quinny Zapp but didn't recline which is something we want a stroller to do with the lad coming up to 12 month old, incidentally I sold the Quinny Zapp on Ebay and only lost £20 on it, they are very sought after!

Hi There,

I'm just new here (just registered) ,but reading the forum for a while now.
I'm the proud owner of a Mini One D sinde 1,5 year and I'm from Belgium.

And the mum of 2 year old boy, who adores the Mini
So, I also came to this forum to find out which buggy fits the Mini.
We now have a McLaren which fits the boot.

But, it's not over yet. Within 4,5 months we're expecting twins !!
So, first time I heard it, everybody was saying: Oh, the Mini will be too small..
But since we also have a large family car within a month (Ford S Max), I would never get rid of the Mini..

Anyway, today we went to Holland to buy our new twin stroller, TFK Twinner Twist, in order to fit in the S-Max
Of course we went with the Mini and guess what.... The TFK fits the boot !!!
We did a challenge: will it fit, or not ? After trying, turning we suddenly had the correct way to get the buggy in.
I'm so happy !
Only, I have to take the 4 wheels off, but it means I can get out with the twins as well.

Anyway, so another one to add to the list.
When I have it, I'll take a picture (it will be February...)

So, that's about it!

Greetings from a happy mum

Ps: Since I'm apparantly not allowed to post URLS, the shop in Holland is called BabyJungle.
Google will help you

Dissapointed to hear the bad Luna reviews. I liked the look of that one.

Has anyone had any experience of the icandy buggies and whether they will fit?
I've read some poor reviews of the icandy apple (too heavy, unstable), but the cherry seems lighter and cheaper than the bugaboo (which seems to be my front runner at the moment).
I haven't seen anything about the icandy cherry though, so any ideas?
Thanks.

Hi there,

I have a Mini and a two year old.
We have a 3 wheel buggy which fits the boot, when one of the rear seats in folded down.
So, with only 1 child, you shoud certainly consider this option. Just go to shop with your mini and try them out.

Besides that one, we have a Mclaren buggy (it has 4 wheels
That's really great and fits the boot. We used that one since our son was 3 months old. It can be layed horizontally so that's okay.

As for a car seat, almost any maxi cosi fits. We had no problem at all.
For a car seat of group 2, we preferred Römer King. That one fits very well.
And now we moved on to group 3 car seats, and we also bought a Römer , Romer Kid.

My advice: just go te the shop and fit the buggy and everything in the Mini...

Ps: I'm not even gonna get of the mini and we're expecting twins. I can get 3 kids in the car, so why bother

If you need any further help or suggestions, just let me know.

Greetings,

Cathy

Hi again. I have bought a Petite Star Zia. It is great!!! It is really comfy for both me and squirt (who is nearly 2), easy to fold and unfold and most important of all it fits in my MC boot with room! Would recommend to anyone!
