A very good friend of mine and his wife are expecting a baby. This weekend they went shopping for a pushchair. This morning when we discussed this he was showing me on the t'internet the buggy they had chosen. It comes with detachable car seat (a must) and later - as their baby grows - will do a 'transformer' and change from a proper pram into a stroller. The cost of this item (bearing in mind that I last bought a pushchair about 18 and half years ago and paid about a hundred quid) was an astounding £625. I was totally gobsmacked. Is it me or is that an obscene amount of money for something that is a necessity?
