When having a baby I think Buggies are so hard to choose, you’ve got to get the right combo for your situation. Whether it be all-terrain, small, light weight, jogger, vintage … there are so many to choose from. Not only is it a mine field but it also almost becomes a social status. Unfortunately.
I hate that people think that the more expensive buggie they buy the better it makes them look- so over it! There is like the buggy hierarchy it’s ridiculous.
Still we chose ours because it worked out best for us.
We chose the iCandy Peach in Royal/ Chrome. The specification for the pushchair is this;
- Suitable from birth (with carrycot) or 6 months (pushchair & seat unit) up to 25kgs
- Optional extra lie-flat carrycot for newborns, which is suitable for overnight sleeping
- Parent and World facing
- Lockable front wheels / Removable rear wheels
- Smooth-rolling, puncture proof EVA tyres.
- All round suspension for a smooth ride
- Unique (pop-up) one hand seat and carrycot removal
- Elevator adaptor allows seat unit to be heightened in parent and world-facing mode
- The hood and bumper bar are interchangeable and are for use on your main carrycot.
- 4 position adjustable handle height from 95cm _ 105cm
- Adjustable leg rest
- One touch buckle
- Leatherette handle & bumper bar
- Adjustable hood
- Five point safety harness
- 3 position recline
- Freestanding chassis when folded
- Comes complete with elevator & raincover
Now the one key thing that made us choose the iCandy is durability. It was so sturdy in comparison to a lot of other reputable brands. I was shocked at the difference between this and a Silver Cross.
If you shake the buggy from side to side it doesn’t really good much.
The iCandy peach is not all terrain- there is a different iCandy peach all terrain available, however, the way the peach handles different terrains is incredible. We have taken to the woods where it became caked in mud and also the beach, we have sucky stones on our beach and pushing the buggy through the thick stones was effort but got through it.
I love our buggy. It is in my opinion one of the best on the market right now.
You can buy yours from iCandy direct starting from £965 however places such as mothercare etc always have deals.
