What they say:

“Stylish and contemporary, Surf features a unique air sprung suspension for outstanding multi-terrain performance. Ideal from birth, Surf includes a carrycot, which can be used as a lie-flat pram or for overnight sleeping, and a seat unit which transforms your Surf into a parent or forward-facing pushchair. It can also be combined with the Simplicity car seat to create a full travel system.

“The Special Edition Eton Grey draws its inspiration from British tailoring, with luxurious brushed grey fabrics and a stylish gloss black chassis. It comes with a beautiful faux fur seat liner and luxury tote bag.”

Would you recommend the Silver Cross Surf to other mums?    

I love the design of this pram, the black frame looks really sleek & the limited edition covers are excellent quality. When folded down (which is a palaver, see below!) it becomes really compact & would fit in the smallest of boots. If you're using the bassinet then that folds flat with a couple of clicks so ideal for storing.

How did this product make your life easier?     

This pram comes with everything you need to get you from newborn to toddler. The change bag is really spacious and matches the pram perfectly. The bassinet can be used over night so that makes it ideal for having a night or two away and not having to pack a Moses basket. I like that the foot muff & hood can be used on wither the seat or the bassinet and the zip attachment is great for a quick change

What changes would you make to this product?

The fold mechanism. The fold requires too many steps, with a toddler and bad weather I think I would end up in tears in M&S car park wanting to donate the pram to the nearest passerby! It's so frustrating that you have to lock the wheels, remove the seat, lower the handle before you can even start the collapsing process of lifting the handle, putting your foot on the button and then changing the angle of the shopping basket. The thought of doing all that on a wet, miserable day is what has put me off this travel system.

Would you recommend the Silver Cross Surf to other mums?    

There is no doubt that the quality of this product is very much reflected in the price tag. The look and quality of the product is second to none with its sheepskin liner and beautiful texture of fabrics and the whole appearance is very eye catching and you certain getting some envious looks when out and about with it. The manoeuvrability and comfort of use are outstanding.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The beautiful and stunning changing bag that comes with this pushchair is lovely and has the appearance more of a designer handbag than a regular changing bag. The shopping basket which is incorporated in the frame is a good size and very practical. The straps are easy to fit and you can also easily detach the shoulder straps for easy access to little one.

Would you choose this product to win?

I feel the big down point for this pushchair is its foldability. If there is an award for causing the most pushchair envy then this one would definitely be a winner as it certainly gained a lot of attention when we were out and about.

What changes would you make to this product?

The one thing that I would change about this pushchair is it foldability as it simply takes up too much room. The chassis collapses brilliantly although it does take some getting use to. The problem is that the seat unit has to be detached from the frame and it simply doesn't fit into the frame at all when collapsed, I have a big SUV and it takes up my whole boot.

The Silver Cross Surf looks amazing. The limited addition covers are superb quality and look really stylish. This pram folds down to a very compact size and would fit into virtually any boot. If using the bassinet when the baby is really small, this folds with ease so it’s ideal for transport and storage. This being said, getting the pram folded is another story...

How did this product make your life easier?     

This pram comes equipped with everything you will ever need in regards to a pram and what you need when you're out with baby. The included change bag is very large and has enough room for everything and it also is a perfect match for the pram. The bassinet is approved for over night use which is handy for being away. The foot muff can be used ro both the seat and the bassinet and the zip attachment is a good quality for a quick and easy change over.

I was SO excited to test this pram as Silver Cross has a place on my heart right from when I was a baby. However, I was so disappointed by the fact that it is so difficult to use. The folding just required far too many steps until it is actually folded. This, along with challenging weather, a baby, a toddler and then all the shopping would send me insane and ditching the pram there and then. i cannot stress how disappointed I was at this. Efficiency is a must.

What changes would you make to this product?

The fold! It was so frustrating (probably because I had such high expectations). You need to lock the wheels, remove the wheels and lower the handle before you can even start the fold or lifting the handle, pressing the button with your foot and then changing the angle of the shopping basket before proceeding to collapse the pram. Honestly, even the thought is giving me palpitations!!
