Summary: Peach-y Beach-y Summer As we weren’t going on holiday this year due to the Olympics we went on day trips here and there in between the rain showers and working as well. These were mainly to the beach so there was no doubt about it the Peach Jogger was the pram for the job. The air tyres make it such a smooth ride over the beach it did better on damper sand then on totally dry as I found the front wheel got stuck a couple of times but nothing major like you would expect...
Summary: So I’ve now had the iCandy Peach Stroller in my possession for a couple of months and all I can say is “WOW”. I know that may sound a bit over the top but seriously I’m in love. I haven’t used the iCandy Peach Stroller with the carrycot as my little girl is now in the seat unit so can’t comment on that but I will share my experience so far. I am testing the iCandy Peach Stroller in Tomato colour. The colours are so vibrant; definitely stand out from the crowd.
Summary: I am really impressed with the iCandy, it wasn’t a brand I had ever heard of before I’d fallen pregnant with this baby and the quality of the pushchairs is fantastic. Overall this has been one of my favourite pushchairs and I have owned a few in my time, pramaholic comes to mind ;-) In this set up it’s easy to push, comfortable, the air tyres take bumps well and it seems to be a nice smooth ride. The carrycot is quite narrow.
Pros: A few of my favourite things are: - How the iCandy handles all terrain so easily. - Simple folding system. - Height adjustable handlebar - Its good looking!
Cons: With the carrycot on it’s extremely difficult to get things underneath. We often walk to tescos and it’s a mission to get the shopping under even when not in bags and just putting singular items in. The narrowness is also added to by having studs which keep the base off the ground when using the carrycot freestanding so things get caught on them!
My review of the iCandy Peach Jogger. 9 months on with my Peach Jogger!

Summary: I think this stroller has some really good features; you notice them especially more if you have/had a lightweight buggy/pram or stroller with smaller wheels. The basket is big and is great for storing your shopping. Everything is easy to use especially when taking off carrycot or car seat as it’s just a button you need to press. The big wheels are great for kerbs, especially the smaller ones as it goes straight up without lifting the front end.
Pros: I love the carrycot it is so protective of the baby and spacious. Wheels are great for going all terrain I would compare this to a land rover style car! Goes over sand, through mud the works. Easy to manouvere. Massive shopping basket for all those trips into town. Easy to remove wheels one push button on and off. Carrycot suitable for overnight sleeping as is ventilated. Seat unit on chassis good height. Car seat on adaptors on chassis great high height, no bending d...
Cons: Carrycot is top-heavy when lifting off the chassis. Not suitable for running with (unless its a short one for a bus for example). Have to remove handlebar completely to get child in and out. Not great stability at going up curbs on the front wheel. Shopping basket hard to get into with carrycot on.
Summary: The iCandy peach is an eye catching peace of kit! I had previously bought the mamas and papas ultima on xcel chassis and after that this was a breath of fresh air! No problem storing in the house, and the chassis fits behind the 7seats in our zafira, in that tiny bit of boot space!! Shocking! Without needing to take wheels off! The carrycot we also purchased with car seat and adapters which we leave in the car!
An excellent all-things-to-all-parents buggy. And stylish too!

Summary: I would certainly recommend this pram/buggy to anyone, if they are prepared to stomach the price. At the top end of the market it is up against the Bugaboo Cameleon and Stokke, and I would definitely say it has the edge. I found the Stokke uncomfortable to push around. And I did a detailed comparison with the 'boo because my Brother has one. The 'boo has more colour options and you can fit a buggyboard on the back.
Pros: This is a brilliant buggy. Incredibly easy to steer with one finger, huge shopping basket, and mostly very sturdy construction. It looks very stylish and we've either been offered or overheard lots of compliments about it. Our kid sleeps in it very easily, and of course it always has the option to turn into a tandem in the future. I've also found the shoulder strap carry option very useful. Finally I found customer service to be very prompt, courteous and efficient.
Cons: Some of the accessories are expensive, especially since the basic model isn't cheap. The raincover ripped very easily and John Lewis refused to replace it. The lovely aluminium bits have got scratched a lot, and a couple of bits and pieces have got damaged, but that's mostly down to cack-handed airport baggage handlers (we live abroad so we've had to make lots of air trips back to visit the grandparents). The whole thing is pretty heavy by the standards of a Maclaren,...
A peach of a pushchair! What can only be described as the 4 x 4 of the buggy world.

Summary: I love this pushchair. I eagerly awaited the release of it and actually ordered it the day after it came into the shops. Although I have no experience of using it as a tandem i did try all of the options in the shop and was very impressed. The seat unit sits nice and high saving you from bending all the time and you can push and steer it easily with one hand.
Pros: This pushchair is so light and easy to manouver. It has a height adjustable handle that means that my taller hubby can also push it with ease. It folds down so easily and stands by itself which makes it easy to store. The seat unit faces outwards and towards you which is fantastic and it also reclines flat making it ideal for sleeping. The suspension is great, you don't feel any lumps and bumps in the road. The seat unit bounces around alot which concerned me at first...
Cons: The sexy shiny alluminium chassis it great but it does scratch quite easily. My 17 month old is quite long but average build and his feet already overhang the footplate. The waist harness was so small that it hardly went around him but after contact with icandy they sent me longer ones with no charge which are much better. The hood is height adjustable but i find it just slips down to the lower position all the time. The bumper bar is very stiff and has no swivel feat...
Excerpt: I just wanted to write a quick review regarding hood noise on the Peach 3 for anyone who has concerns. I looked at the Peach 3 in two stores in London and was really worried by the hood noise which could be likened to machine gun fire when the hood is moved forward and back. I was desperate to buy the Peach 3 because I wanted to use it in Blossom (double) mode when I have my second child later in the year.
Excerpt: Love this pram so much, our daughter is 7 months old now and I still love pushing it, it's very easy to collapse and there's plenty of room in the basket not to mention it being a cosmetically beautiful design! We did have a problem with the handle coming apart and our stockist had closed down, we were nervous as we read some negative comments here about Icandy customer service but they were just fantastic with us and had our handle replaced within 24 hours.
Excerpt: Lightweight and steers like a dream, the carrycot, car seat and pushchair seat units are easy to take on and off. The suspension is good for a newborn and the seat unit tilts to aid digestion and make colicky babies more comfortable. The shopping basket is large too and the system is still easy to steer and manoeuvre with a lot of weight in it. The handle adjusts easily which is helpful when in small spaces.
