What they say:

“The iCandy Peach is famous for its one-hand fold and head-turning colours. The Peach can upgrade into a double travel system to grow with your family with the use of innovative adapters, in just a few clicks the pushchair transforms into a double and back into a single pushchair when needed. Moreover, unique elevators allow the single seat or carrycot to be positioned higher and closer to the parent. Crafted by iCandy's team of pioneering British designers, the iCandy Peach features beautiful details and design, along with a soft leatherette handle and bumper bar for that finishing, lasting touch.”

Would you recommend this to other dads and mums?    

I would recommend The iCandy Peach Blossom to other dads and mums because it is very easy to transport around - the shoulder strap means you can carry the chassis like a handbag, it's very stylish and both my kids look very comfortable in it - the baby falls asleep every time he gets in it so it must be good.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The iCandy Peach Blossom makes my life easier as a dad because even though it's a tandem, it's not as long or bulky as other tandems on the market. It's very small, compact and looks really good. It's also easier to steer than the other, longer tandems. The shoulder strap on the chassis is great, especially when I have a child in both arm!

What changes would you make to this product?

If I could change one thing about this pram it would be the price. It really is a very good pram. Unfortunately I think that the price puts a lot of people off. It did for me. The rest of it, I can't fault. If the price was even slightly less, then this would be the top pram.

The iCandy Peach Blossom is a versatile pram, it is very sturdy and manoeuverable for its size especially in the double pram set up. It is easy to set up and quick to interchange between single mode and double mode. It is compact enough to fit into our boot and store away nicely in the cupboard, however if you are low on space it can be taken apart and reassembled fairly easy making it good for trips out in the car. Overall it is a very safe and easy to use double buggy that looks great while being comfortable for the kids at the same time.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The iCandy Peach Blossom works well as either a single or double pram and it is very quick and easy to interchange between the two. It is a very manoeuverable despite it being a slightly heavier pram that I am used to. I use this to walk the dogs with the children in the pram and it handles very well over grassy terrain and off road surfaces meaning I can take them all on proper walks out.

I prefer the design of this pram over others I have seen, being able to have baby on top rather than tucked away at the bottom is to my preference. I also like the extended handles as I generally find it awkward to walk with alot of prams as the handles are to close to the wheel base. with this however I find it much more comfortable to walk with.

What changes would you make to this product?

A few times I had trouble mounting kerbs which made the pram wobble slightly, so maybe a larger wheel set to help get up and over kerbs easier. It is also on the heavy side, while this gives it a nice sturdy feel it makes it difficult if I am transporting it around on my own without any help from my husband.

I thought that this was an extremely well made product and that a lot of care was given in every detail of manufacture, the materials were obviously of a superior quality and looked like they would be easier to clean and hard wearing.  This is especially handy if you plan on using it for a few children.

How did this product make your life easier?     

I found that it was very compact and it was an absolute dream to get it in and out of the boot of my car. Trust me when I say that this also saved my sanity. I thought that the one hand fold was very smooth and I found that it was probably one of the best we have experienced in terms of easiness to use.

Although it was very well designed and a luxury high end product I found that the seats seemed to be just too small and that there just wasn’t enough room for my children to be comfortable. I also found that in certain configurations that it could be difficult to get the toddler into the back seat.

What changes would you make to this product?

If I could have changed the size of the seats I would have been much happier but I also found that the carry cot seemed on the smaller side too which meant that I would not be sure just sure how long we would be able to use it. This was a great pity because overall it is a fantastic product to operate.

This pushchair is a real style statement, it’s super stylish and such high quality. It folds really easily and really small, it can fit in the tiniest of car boots. Excellent build quality and the frame and seats look hardwearing and able to withstand cleaning to keep it looking good. The carry cot was really nice and looked very snug for a newborn.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The iCandy Peach Blossom folded up easily and with one hand, the strap inside to assist with folding and carrying the frame was awesome, It made getting the pushchair to and from the car no problem. The hoods were really sturdy and well made, meaning I could adjust them quickly and easily without the risk of waking my daughter who is a very light sleeper.

It was difficult to get my daughter out of the second seat with the bar at the side of the pushchair. The bar also made it difficult for the eldest to see out, it was too small for her to be comfortable. The cost is another big issue, I just don't think I could justify spending that amount of money on a pushchair when I can get something similar for a lot less.

What changes would you make to this product?

The seats and carry cot seemed too small. My daughter who despite being quite small for her age seemed a little cramped in the seat. It would've been nicer if they were a little bigger, given the cost of the pushchair it would've been nicer to use it for a very long time. I just don't think it would last long enough to warrant the high cost.

A high quality pushchair that was very well designed and styled. Everything just seemed to work so well on it. The iCandy Peach Blossom is such a style statement, it turned heads when I used it. Very small, compact and easy to store (folded and unfolded). I quite like the unusual colour and the other colour options that the iCandy is available in.

How did this product make your life easier?     

Very easy to push and absolutely no problem in small places as it’s so compact, fits nicely in my car boot leaving enough space for shopping. I didn't need to fold it when it was in the house as it has a small foot print and easy to move out the way, so we could leave the house quickly without having to set up the pushchair as we did with other brands.

Would you choose this product to win?

Yes, it was high quality, the fabric seemed to be of a very high grade and would be easy to keep clean. The handle was made of a very durable rubber and would not show signs of wear anytime soon. Easy to use, manoeuvrability was exceptional even with both seats occupied. I couldn't believe how small it folded up, so was easy to store.

What changes would you make to this product?

The pushchair frame made it quite difficult to get the child in the rear seat in and out. It was impossible to get a sleeping toddler out of the back seat without removing the front seat to gain access, which was very inconvenient. The frame also obscured the child’s view making it appear quite enclosed and trapped.
