You look at a traditional pram (not a bassinet add-on for a luxury stroller, but an old world pram), and think, "That is gorgeous. I wish I had an estate I could push that on." Not because you'd need an estate to afford one (which you might), but because the act of pushing one of these would make you feel like a duchess. Or at least the governess of the future duke.
I used to think that there would be little point in owning a coach built pram apart from the aesthetic point. What was the point really? You spend a lot of money on a stroller that has little practical application in the real world, and that could only be used for a few months (unless there is a toddler seat available). Yet, if you add up the uses of a pram, it really isn't a bad purchase after all.
- It's your stroller
- It would take the place of a bassinet
- It would take the place of a playpen/travel cot
- It's a baby seat
- It's your bouncy seat
With all those uses, why not have a pram? If you bought all high quality items, you would equal out the price of one nicely built pram.
