There was once a time when a pram was just a pram. These days, parents looking to purchase a set of wheels for their kiddo are bombarded with a barrage of styles, models, must-have features and added extras from which to choose.
Travel systems, off-road capability, three-wheelers versus four-wheelers, steerage – finding the right pushchair is almost as daunting as buying a car.
Lucky for you, the Prima Baby Awards winners for best pushchairs are in – so no more need for strenuous guesswork, and no more countless hours of test-driving in the aisles of Mothercare. (You’re welcome.)
Check the top pushchairs out:
Bronze Award winner – Nuna IVVI
A stylish, sturdy and easy-to-steer buggy, the bronze winner Nuna IVVI transitions well from urban spaces to off-road terrain.
Silver Award winner (Joint)- Stokke Scoot
Described as a “lovely smooth ride” and being “really lightweight”, the Stokke Scoot scoops an impressive second place. Easily recognisable by its ultra-cute, compact shape and elevated seat unit, the Stokke Scoot design makes it easy to manoeuvre tight spaces, and, most importantly, interact with your baby.
Silver Award winner (Joint) – UPPAbaby Cruz
This new edition of the hugely-popular US buggy came out at the beginning of this year and has been unanimously described by the judges as “lightweight, easy to steer and” – bonus for dads – “very easy to build”.
Gold Award winner – Top Pushchair Silver Cross Pioneer
Undoubtedly one of the most premium pushchairs around, Prima Baby Awards judges call the Silver Cross Pioneer “high-quality, very comfortable and spacious”. The easy-fold Pioneer, with its smooth manoeuvrability and travel system compatibility, make it the ideal pushchair for newborns. And the huge basket – bonus for mums – is another reason it’s nabbed gold place this year.
