3.0 out of 5 stars Just OK, 9 May 2014
I have had this buggy for a few months now,so can give a proper review based on several months of use.

It is not as wonderful as i had hoped,after reading many good reviews.Heres why:

Handle height and position-although the handles are high enough for taller parents like myself(i'm 5ft7),the position of them is far too close to the buggy.If they were to be set back a few inches it would be much better.I find myself kicking the wheels when walking as i am too close,which is very frustrating.Then i try to compensate by stretching my arms out front as far as they'll go,so i'm only holding the handles by the tips,which does not feel safe or right,but is the only way i can avoid kicking the wheels.
I always get a sore back when pushing this buggy because of the way i have to push it.I have never found this problem with any other buggy,and i've had a few with 4 children.
Its an unusual problem and not one i could possibly have forseen,so i hope this explains it well enough.

The material feels like cheap quality,but this is the norm with most Hauk buggies.
The plastic of the harness clips feels cheap too,so i keep expecting them to snap,but they haven't so far.

The front wheels are not as easy to steer as i expected after reading so many good reviews either,and on some shop floor surfaces steering can be very tricky indeed.

The basket doesn't come right out to the sides,and several times i have put things into the basket,only to find they weren't inside it but outside,and ended up on the ground,so have to be very careful with this.

Although the cup holder is handy,i find it sticks out too much and theres no option to fold it in,so i'm often bumping it into things,although it is removable.

The raincover is such a flaff to put on.Firstly,its made of a cheap plastic that seems to stick to itself,and it tears easily,so even unfolding it takes 1-2 minutes.It takes a lot of adjusting to get it sitting right before you can do up all the fiddley velcros.And then its not long enough to cover a toddlers feet resting on the foot rest.So you will be standing in the pouring rain for about 3-5 minutes trying to get it on the buggy.Any other raincover i've had before takes around 20-30 seconds to put on.

These are all the negative things i have to say about it,so heres the positives:

It looks nice,especialy in lime green,which is more expensive.
The silver frame with the co-ordinated piping gives it a fresh,modern edge.
I like the enclosed wheels,and they are not too rattley.

The suspension is good,so you don't feel every little tremor going up your arms when going over gravel.

The large hood is brilliant,especially for light rain,or sunny days,and is so easy to put down or up.

The bumper bar is genious-me and my little girl love it-she can sit more upright and hold onto it to get a better view of the world.And its easy to unclip to let her out.

It folds up nice and compact-would fit in any boot.And the lock keeps it closed,even with footmuff on,you just need to move it to the side a little to get lock to clip in.And make sure the front wheels are locked when applying lock

Foot muff is great,even for toddlers.Its cosy yet light,so if you want to remove it for shopping,it fits nicely in the basket with the raincover,and still folds up with all that underneath.

Breaks are good-just need double checking that they are engaged.

The actual handles are a good idea,as they are comfortable to hold.Just a pity about the positioning of the handles.

So all in all there are some great features in this buggy,but a lot of room for improvement as well

These tv buttons are not the same as in the picture.But they still work on my tv.
They are quite annoying as some of the buttons are not in convenient places,which makes using them a bit frustrating.
But i have them as a spare for when the original set goes missing so handy to have.

I was expecting better from these bras after reading good reviews,and spending so much on them.
However,they are just OK.Marginaly better then M&S cheap maternity bras.
The cups are very high,so most of my tops,which are not even low cut,show off the lace.
The material is thick and more supportive than cheap bras,but i found the cups very big.I am 51/2 months pregnant so i'll grow into them,and they are nursing bras so will hopefully fit me after the birth through breast feeding,so get my moneys worth.
Just disappointed that i have very few tops that don't show the top of the bra.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good non-leak flask, 8 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The flask was bigger than any of the other similar types i'd seen in the shops.
I've learn't from previous metal flasks not to wash in the dishwasher as it misshapes the thin metal and scratches the flasks design.
So my daughters flask has lasted well so far.And no leaks at all in her school bag.
Keeps drinks nice and cool too especially if kept inside an insulated lunch bag in the warmer months.

3.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't stick well, 8 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this to seal up the end of an open-ended duvet cover.
It did not come with instructions so i had to look up online how to apply the velcro.
I spent a very long time pressing the iron on it to get it to adhere to the cover but after about 45 mins of this,it still wasn't sticking well and i now have to be extremely careful when pulling the velcro apart for washing so it doesn't come away from the cotton of the duvet cover.
Very strong velcro though.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wish it was cotton, 8 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When i typed "cotton nighties for kids" into amazons search,this nightie came up and i was so delighted i ordered it-too quickly without double checking the fabric.
It is not cotton at all but 100% polyester,which,in my opinion,is the most horrible fabric to wear,nevermind sleep in.
Most girls nighties are made of the awful fabric unfortunately,despite the fact it is scratchy,sweaty,and just plain uncomfortable-don't understand why its used so widely.
This is a pretty little nightdress,but would be just perfect if it was cotton.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the quality i was expecting, 8 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When i opened the box i felt a bit deflated.
The boots are very light,which i suppose is good for comfort,but they don't feel sturdy or long lasting.
The finish is dull,not all shiney like in the photo.
They scratch extreemly easily-even as i zip them up,my short nails brushing against the leather leaves noticable marks.By the end of the first day of wear they looked like old boots,not brand new.
As all other reviews have said,they have absolutely no water repellant properties at all.They actually absorb moisture from even damp grass and leave your feet soaking,so i would only wear them if i knew the weather was going to be bone-dry.
The soles have no grips at all,so even on damp tarmac or concrete they feel slippy.
They are comfy from 3rd or fourth wear-my feet took a few wears to get used to them,but were never painful.

They do look good,and i'll wear them for as long as they look ok,but i fear that won't be very long,which is disappointing for the price.I was expecting alot better quality.I've spent much less on boots that i've had for 8 years and still look pretty good.
I am going to spray them with leather protecter which hopefully will help with the lack of waterproofing

So over all,yes they look nice and are comfy,but are completely impractical and not great value for money.

This little fan is perfect,and robust.
After a very hot summer,my son(who is autistic)was finding the stick hot air hard to bear.He loves his fan.Its safe as the blades are foam.
All the kids who come round to play end up playing with this.It has even been stuck in water upside down and i thought it would be broken,but its still going strong,and doesn't eat batteries.
Highly recommended.
