The last time I brought a pram 6 yrs ago the Bertini was the rage and I have say I used mine for 4 years and I loved it!
I have a baby due in April and need a new pram and have been looking on their website at the X and Z series and I love them, they seem a lot like the bugaboo to me.
I am however having trouble finding anyone who stocks them which has me wondering what ever happened to Bertini? They had great prams and now they seem to be all but gone, does anyone have the x or z series that can comment?

I had an old one too when we had DS who is now 6.5yrs.  It was a brilliant pram and one of the reasons I'm not using it for #3 atm is that the cover has been damaged and they no longer stock replacements.  I'm keeping it as a walking and around the yard pram though.

When looking for a new pram, I saw the new Bertini prams in stock at one of our local baby stores but they just don't seem as sturdy as they were.  It felt a lot more plasticky and for that sort of money, I think I'd go for a Silver Cross or other premium brand over the Bertini.

We ended up with the Strider for the benefits of the travel system.  It is not as good as the Bertini and I'm finding myself comparing the two constantly.  The capsule travel system will be great for school drop offs and pick ups though.

We purchased a Bertini X2 with seat and bassinet two years ago for our first bub and LOVED it.
The X2 was our choice of frame because it was a bit narrower than alot of other prams on the market with a similar look/feel/quality.  Like you, we contemplated the Bugaboo and a few others in that price bracket but came back to the Bertini for overall value/looks/quality etc.

We purchased ours from Bubs here in Brisbane but I believe they have other stores around the place also.  If not, I think you can purchase online...

Bubs Baby Shop

We had a small issue with our frame just earlier this year, and in conjuction with Bubs' assistance, the frame was replaced by Bertini as there is a 2yr warranty on the frame which was great.

I still love ours but we have bub # 2 on the way and so will be (regretably) handing ours on to our SIL.  Sad to see it go sad.gif

Hi, I have a z series bassinet attachment and stroller which I used for both of my children.  It lasted really well and is in great condition.  DD is now in a smaller stroller.  Dont know what I'm going to do with it now though.... wwhistle.gif

Baby Kingdom used to stock them but our local one doesnt seem to have them anymore.  I'm sure you can buy online somewhere.

Some baby shops have them.  I love the X4 in the green.  They are a lot bigger than bugs I think.  I have an old Bertini as well, but it's too big for shopping so I just use it for walking.
