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: 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...
" 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.
Summary: As an expectant mother of twins I was quite overwhelmed when choosing a pushchair, even though in comparison to choosing a single there is a lot less choice. The first question I asked myself was tandem or side by side. Personally I preferred side by side but the area I lived in had very narrow pavements in places and also narrow shop doorways so I opted for tandem. ***iCandy Pear*** When choosing a tandem pushchair I personally didn't think the choice was great.
Pros: Stylish and a well thought out travel system
Excerpt: I have had my ICandy Pear for my twins since birth and they are now a year old. I love it! I am continually stopped and asked about it as it is a really great pram. I have tried the Maclaren Twin Techno and Alu Rax and just don;t rate side-by-sides plus this is one of the only ones in which both my daughters can face me (you tilt the first seat quite flat and then you can see the other one through the window).
Excerpt: I was looking the other day at the i candy pear as a move up from the i candy apple which i currently have. i was having a go with the pear and was impressed with the manouverability of it especially with it having two seats. i love my i candy apple and its been a brilliant purchase so i have high hopes for the pear. My only gripe is that i have the carrycot for the apple and cannot use it on the pear as its too large for the pear.
Excerpt: The iCandy Pear is such a great idea and ticks so many boxes. It can be a single or double, is very sturdy, can be a travel system, the children can face forward or the parent, it’s pretty easy to push for a double. It sounds perfect and to be honest I couldn’t find a twin pram that was better.
Excerpt: I purchased the iCandy Pear whilst living in London (I am now in New Zealand). Like all doubles it has its good and bad points. My two children are 12 months apart, so I really needed a pram that they could both sleep in.
Excerpt: I really like this pushchair for pushing – the chassis is well built and solid and the wheels go in the direction you want them to. I can push it with one hand in a straight line though it takes 2 for cornering and to get up curbs (easier if you have the handle fully out for leverage).
