Shopping: Three for all: best buys; The ultimate in stylish baby transport, the three-wheeler is at the top of most parents' must have for baby list. We put five of the all-terrains through their paces for you.

Mac 3 Maclaren pounds 199.99 STYLISH, inexpensive three-wheeler with pump-up tyres. Well- padded seat with two-position backrest, but it doesn't recline fully so not suitable for newborns. Folding mechanism is simple, although you need both hands and there's a useful carry handle, raincover, cosytoes and hood included.

Where to buy: 01327 841 320HHHHH Freestyle 3 Quinny pounds 249 THIS sleek steel look is trendy but there's not enough padding and the seat is fairly wide, so a very young baby would be quite exposed. Although heavy, the pram is easy to manoeuvre and effective on bumpy surfaces, but because it's wide it's not great for pushing round the shops. The seat reclines to any position and you can buy a car seat.

Where to buy: 020 8236 0707HHHHHJeep Typhoon 3 Hauck pounds 437 LUXURIOUS all-terrain system that's easy to set up. The fabric is great quality and well suited to mums and dads who want to take baby into the great outdoors. The seat is nicely padded and reclines well back while the handlebars adjust to suit your height. It's very heavy, not to be lugged on and off a city bus, but made to withstand whatever the ground throws at it.

Where to buy: 0870 840 6727 HHHHHXTS Twister Baby Style pounds 229 WELL-DESIGNED, well-priced all-terrain that weighs in at just 9kg. The seat has three recline positions and it lies more or less flat for a baby older than three months.

There's a fleece seat mat to make it cosy. The zip-off hood is a brilliant shelter, plus there's a handy viewing mesh.

Where to buy: 01509 816 444 HHHHHPinnacle Mothercare pounds 189 INEXPENSIVE if it's the three-wheel look you're after rather than a buggy. Seat is padded in hardwearing fabric and reclines almost flat for a young baby. Raised sides give added protection, plus it comes with a snug cosytoes.

Good for a toddler with a roomy seat anda handy play tray. Hood has a clear viewing panel and a storage pocket.
