Hi there

Can anyone recommend a shop that has a large range of prams and car seats so I can try before I buy!

Thanks

I'm not to sure that there are many big shops around anymore, most seem to have a very limited range of prams and not always the best ones.  I do remember the Baby Shop out in Ossie Park on Frobisher Street was pretty good.

I have just imported a Peg Perego Switch Four for my sister in law as I think this will be best for her.  Unfortunately these prams are not available in Perth and probably not even in Australia.  The best thing about them is the fact that the seat unit is separate to the frame so initially you use the Viaggio Capsule on the frame for bubs and then as they get bigger you can clip the seat on which can face mum or away from mum.  Brilliant prams these...

Sorry for my waffle, I love prams but after 3 children and no more coming I have to live through my sister and sister in law for my pram fixes!!! LOL so sad....

Good luck and if you would like more info pm me original.gif

If you get to Baby Bunting, there's Baby Road just across Norma Rd and a Mothercare shop just nearby as well.

Baby Bunting - is that a name change of an existing store ?

Bought our cot at baby bunting in Myaree and our pram from Baby expo in Balcatta. I'd suggested researching online for the pram that meets all your needs and then find a shop that stocks it. Baby expo was the only shop in Perth that stocks ours.

No.  Mothercare has taken over the Baby on a Budget site next to Spotlight, and Baby Bunting is new (well, it wasn't there when we were in the market for baby goods, so new to me)  in the complex where Bed Shed, Fernwood and Rebel Sports are located.

I haven't heard of Baby Bunting either. I use to live in the area and went to Fernwood so I'll have to check it out in a few months time.
