Ok, I know what you’re thinking, ‘hasn’t The Dad Network already done a review of this pushchair?’ Well, yes I have – but minus the baby!
In actual fact, I thought it would be really good to do a 2nd review of it. This pushchair is fantastic and very affordable, so when I find good products, I want readers to know about them. This is also The Dad Network and pushchairs and dads are like 2 peas in a pod – so it’s definitely worth giving it another mention.
Those of you out there looking for a pushchair must consider this one. Add it to your short list. (Dads, you probably will have some kind of list.) I’ll run through the main selling points in a nice easy, dad way to follow.
#2 The design of this system is great. It’s sleek and stylish whilst maintaining the manly element of being sturdy and substantial looking. It comes in a range of colours, so if you loose the battle with your wife you could end up with a pink one! My advice – stick to black!
#3 This pram is remarkably easy to fold down, however, to do so requires both hands. That means you can’t do any of that 1 handed stuff. All you need to do is lift the 2 finger loops and push it downwards. Job done.
#4 The chassis folds down quite narrow and can stand up for easy storage – something to think about and also means that it’s even more likely you’ll be able to squeeze the golf clubs in the boot as well.
#5 Tyres are made from rubber so you won’t have any puncture issues and the brakes system is very easy. Green for go – red for stop… easy right? The front wheels also lock in place so when you’re cruising in a straight line it makes it a smoother and better ride.
#6 The pushchair is so smooth to push, taking the tightest of hairpins in it’s stride.
#7 The 4 way suspension is a big plus, mainly for those occasions when you’re crossing a road and bump into the curb on the other side but also you can share at your NCT man meetings that you have a pushchair with 4 way suspension!
#8 The shopping basket is huge which is very helpful, but it can be pretty tricky to access when you have the carry cot on top; a common pushchair problem.
#9 You won’t find a better carry cot mattress. SilverCross have the best one ever! It comes with the carrycot and a reversible seat. With adaptors, it can also take a car seat! Bonus!
#10 Comes with a cup holder
