Hi All

My first post ever on EB so sorry if it's breaking any protocols!  Have read for years and found it great.

I am now about to become a grandma and have become a little obsessed with prams.  Daughter due in July and very happy for grandma to do all the research and purchasing on this item.

Just wanted to know anyone's recommendations/thoughts/advice on ordering a City Select from the US.  Having done more research than is sane I think it looks the goods.

Anyone got links/ideas/suggestions most appreciated.

Best Wishes

Annma to be

Hi and welcome to the Essential Baby/Essential Kids forums original.gif

Congratulations on becoming a grandparent! What an exciting time for you all.

I have just moved this thread to the Prams and Strollers forum as there are a lot of great members in there who know a lot about prams.

I have also sent you a Private Message (PM) about your username  as it looks as though it might be your email address wink.gif I will be able to fix that for you.

Kind regards

Hi and welcome. I recently bought one from a NZ online store. I am not sure if I am allowed to name it but I am sure someone else will know if that is allowed. It arrived quickly and I saves heaps of money. It ended up costing 700 for pram and bassinet.

Hi MinD

Welcome aboard! I've only started using EB as well and you're doing a better job than me, I don't even know how to put the quotes in...hahaha...

Try www.ebay.com - US ebay as some stores do delivery on Aus and it works out cheaper than here!!

I'm contemplating ordering from the US as well.....

Good luck finding a pram!

    How dogs could make children better readers

    Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances. Nor is it surprising that reading creates a virtuous circle: the more you read the better you become. But what may come as a surprise is that reading to dogs is gaining popularity as a way of addressing concerns about children's reading.
