Buggies, Pushchairs & Prams with iCandy
What do you need to consider when buying a pushchair, buggy or pram? Your lifestyle requirements, your baby’s needs and your budget are all important points when choosing the right travel system. It’s sometimes the most important decision for expectant parents and a topic that creates hours of debate amongst mums-to-be – do you go lightweight or sturdy, practical or stylish, front-facing or rear-facing?
Surroundings If you live in a city or town then a more lightweight product should be considered. One that is manoeuvrable – to navigate those busy streets (and shops and cafes!) with ease – and a compact and easily foldable system is another important consideration for mums on the move.
Size For those with hectic schedules, a 3-in-1 pram may be worth a thought. With a separate carrycot and a seat unit included, opting for one of these can save you time and make the transport transition from new born to toddler that bit easier. Often coming with handy extra storage too –ideal for the mobile, diary, hand bag and iPad – a 3-in-1 can be just as practical as a lightweight stroller.
Terrain Rural dwellers are likely better suited to a heavier, sturdier vehicle. Moving over trickier terrain and being more exposed to the elements means stronger, larger wheels and good suspension are key too – think more travel system than minimalist, urban stroller.

Check the dimensions. Consider everything. Measure up the car and make sure everything fits, are there wide or narrow streets near you, what about house doors – are they big enough, how much space will it take up indoors?
