iCandy Pear Stroller: All part of the iCandy Charm
16 September 2013
Summary: I was a little put off this at first with the way the two seats seemed to be stacked almost on top of each other but having used the iCandy Cherry and loved it I figured it was worth a second look and I'm so glad I did. It has the classic iCandy look, all neat and compact and padded and handles like a dream with two children in, the part I was really dreading!
Summary: I originally bought a iCandy Apple before my second son was born. I then upgraded to the iCandy Pear when i found out i was pregnant again when my son was just 3 months old. I bought this pushchair because of the many ways it could be used. By the time my daughter arrived my Son was 11.5 months old. I used the pushchair every day to take my eldest son to school. I found it very useful that i could move the seats around to the way that suited me that day.
Excerpt: Bought it over a month ago at John Lewis. Firstly they delivered the wrong colour, so got replacement a week later. I should have returned it instead. The main problem for me is that I got it when my youngest was already 6 months old so he is (still) not excited about going in a buggy so have to carry him a lot. The eldest though does not mind sitting at the front seat. There lies the problem.
Excerpt: Initially I loved this push chair which I bought in the UK for my twins and brought out to Singapore, where I live. We used the maxi cosi adapters and seats for the 1st six months and loved the push chair. We moved the twins into the seats at 6 months and within about 6 months of using the seats, the back seat would flip backwards, sometimes trapping my babies hands or feet in between the bars and seat.
Excerpt: I didnt have this pram when my twins were babies but I did start to use it when they were 7 months old. I think its a great pram and easy to use, it does take a couple of tries to get use to it but after that I quickly became a pro! The seats are a fantastic size and I like the fact that I can have my children facing outwards but also facing me. When its a cold and raining day I turn them to me and keep them out of the horrible weather.
Excerpt: ive been using the pear for 12 months now for my twins, i absolutly loved this pushchair from the moment i set eyes on it until around 7months into using it, when it started squeaking every time i turned a corner or up a kerb or down a bump etc! then the front wheels have started to lock up on there own accord so they dont swivel around corners sometimes unless i stop and push the lever down.
Excerpt: When I found out I was expecting again it was purely luck that I had originally bought the iCandy apple - all that was needed was to order the "Pip converter" and presto we had ourselves a double! Having initially found the Apple quite hard-going and durable (my positive spins on saying "heavy") little did I know what I would expect when I'm pushing around two!

Excerpt: I LOVE THIS PUSHCHAIR! The seat units are so roomy despite popular belief that larger toddlers won't fit in them as I was told before I purchased it. I have an 18 month old who is 3 foot tall and he fits in it perfectly, still with lots of room. It can be used in single mode which is fantastic for when the eldest grows out of the pram and wants to walk, its slim enough to fit comfortably on buses/through shop doors, its easy to push and isn't too big and clutsy like...

Excerpt: For when I reviewed all double strollers was that I needed both of my children to face me on as small a frame as possible. I tested them all, believe me and ended up with the Pear. Its the best so far. I have both my boys facing me on the smallest frame possible. Some of them were just too long.
" A great double - perfect for two small children or…"

Excerpt: A great double - perfect for two small children or twins. It is pretty heavy and as the kids get bigger it can be hard going to push but other than that I can't fault it. If you have a tall toddler I would advise buying the taller hood as the front seat is not designed for tall kiddies. Another thing to bear in mind is that in single use it only faces to the rear. The baby cot addition is pretty small, I had a big baby so it only lasted him six weeks.
