  • 2016 Shortlisted Best Pushchair
Shortlist 2016

We love the way you just flip a handle to move your little one from forward- to rear-facing, without needing to remove her first. A colour indicator makes the brake easy to operate. Simple to steer, and easy to fold after first removing the seat. A padded pram liner, apron and fleece-lined footmuff are included in the price. Our testers found access to the basket is slightly hampered by the seat position. Overall, this offers a smooth ride.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

This pram/pushchair is fab value for money a do love the way it all turns from a pram to a pushchair. I live the colour of the fabric and the frame too! It looks lovely and people have commented on how nice it is. The instructions were clear and enabled me to assemble it quickly and get out and about with the pram quickly. It comes with a cosy insert for the pram park and a sleeping bag style cosy toes which is made of gorgeous soft fabric and my little girl loved being in the cosy toes.  It then has a zip off pram cover too!

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

Folds easily and you can do it with one hand - although because the seat unit is separate it takes up quite a lot of boot space.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

The hood doesn't have an extendable bit for the sun shade like most prams now have and this would be a winner of they added this to the design.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

Loved the ways it folds small and also the way the pram and seat unit is all part of the same bit. 

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

You can spin from facing the world to facing me. My little girl loved this - kept the sun off her.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

How you get into the basket - the frame makes it tricky.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

I really liked this pram, especially how well it moves. It’s a bit difficult to put up at first but once you get the hang of it, it’s easy. I didn’t like how many different colours there were on one pram (red, bronze, grey, black & silver) it was a bit too much. The carrycot is very comfortable looking and well padded. I found it useful that it changed into a stroller, but it was complicated to change and the instructions were only pictures. Words as well as pictures would have been much better. The pram is very easy to manoeuvre. I would definitely recommend this product to friends and family.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

It’s really easy to use and manoeuvre and as a mum that walks a lot this is really important.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

If I could change one thing it would be the fact that all the plastic clips that converts the carrycot to the stroller could be hidden perhaps with a cover.

Tested by Vicky Parker, 38, from Leicestershire, mum to Sofia, eight weeks. She said:

‘High quality, easy to steer, lightweight and stylish. Adjusting the seat position is a doddle. Brilliant value, but comes with poor instructions.’

Tested by Caroline MacPherson, 33, from Buckinghamshire, mum to Delphi, six months. She said:

‘The swivel seat adjustment is great. However, the pushchair seat needs to be a bit roomier to accommodate growing toddlers.’

Tested by Charlotte Kewley, 32, M&B’s fashion editor, from London, mum to Isabella, nine months. She said:

‘Sturdy and secure without being bulky, with lots of extras included. The basket could be bigger, and the instructions are terrible!’
