One Dad And His iCandy

Don't miss a thing

[metaslider id=2838]


For the die hard followers of The Dad Network, you’ll remember a post about which pushchair to buy. Since I made my choice,  we’ve also reviewed a couple of other great pushchairs. Pushchairs to dads are like a shotgun to a gamekeeper or lycra to a cyclist. It’s a vital bit of equipment that requires time and thought put into it to make the right choice. Half of the pregnancy was spent reading reviews and in-store test drives!

In the end, I went for the iCandy Strawberry and I haven’t looked back. I love this pushchair. You can read about it here, but in celebration of making the right choice (I rarely make the right choice) I’ve decided to start a little project. It’s called, ‘one dad and his iCandy.’

I’m aiming to share pictures of me (dad) and my pushchair in various interesting locations. You can see one of me on the beach above and below, one in front of a conveniently placed, ‘arty,’ battered old bulldozer…

How to resolve family arguments

How to resolve family arguments

Family arguments happen all the time, particularly around holidays. Here are ways to resolve them in a way that suits everyone.

    Hi Al, we also debated prams for a long long time and eventually went for an iCandy apple to pear I think its called, it s awesome, handles well and looks great too…..

    • Al Ferguson

      Glad you are happy with your choice. Nothing quite like getting it right is there :)

  2. Ashley Beolens

    Interesting choice, you didn’t feel a rough terrain three wheeler would have been better for excursions? Nah only kidding.

    It’s a really good point I think often when it comes to pushchairs our inner caveman takes over (a bit like with cars) :) and this makes an interesting project I look forward to seeing where the buggy goes (will it end up like extreme ironing and you’ll have it up mountains?)

    Not saying women don’t like cars or anything or even that all men do, oh god I’ve just stereotyped us all again!

    • Al Ferguson

      Thanks for your comment. Haha! Its usually me in trouble for that!

    I don’t drive and have never had an interested in cars whatsoever – so buggy envy passed me by. I think i may be in the minority –

    Interesting photo concept – will it lead to extreme i-candying in dangerous places?

    • Al Ferguson

      Thanks for your comment. Id certainly love it too! The wife might think differently though!

  4. Mike Smith

    Just wait until you have to make the decision of which one to upgrade to when you have to push around more than 1! Better start reading up now! Lol
    Great photos!

    • Al Ferguson

      wow! good point! Im on it…..

  5. Tommy

    Buggies for one, those were the days. My last few were doubles from friends but the one before that seated four and was about the size of an original mini. Certainly turned heads though :) lol

    • Al Ferguson

      Wow! Tommy you’ve just reminded me of that photo of the bike with all the children on it – one in a basket i think?
