Reading your post, I see you mentioned the cheaper, often Polish-made strollers that focus on the oval-shaped carrycot (look rather than function?). This makes me wonder if the Anex e/type model would be a good fit for a first-time parent.
We are not super active and don’t do a lot of hiking, mostly city life. I do like the look of the carrycot configuration to be honest. On the Anex website regarding this particular model, the seat unit looks good to me but since I am no expert I would like your opinion on it.
