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. The vibrant colours alongside the chrome chassis just looks amazing, looks very chic! I also love the material that is used for the seat unit and footmuff, it’s hardwearing, durable and easy to wipe clean.
The iCandy Peach Stroller is a dream to push and I’ve had my fair share of other prams to compare it with. It actually glides! I find it incredibly easy to manage even with one hand. One of my favourite features of the iCandy Peach Stroller is the front wheels. I love that if you decide to go down a step or kerb with front wheels down first, that the wheels stay stable they don’t buckle under like the other prams I’ve had. I have found this feature very useful getting off buses too. Whilst on the subject of wheels the iCandy Peach Stroller’s wheels are cushioned tyres – no punctures and no keeping correct psi. Admittedly the ride isn’t as smooth as air filled tyres but it definitely is smooth enough, my daughter in fact likes to feel the bumps – makes her fall asleep.
Moving on to the ingenious fold. I love how easy it is to fold down this pram. Even though to fold it you have to remove the seat unit it’s not hard to do. Once you’ve removed the seat unit by pushing in buttons on either side of seat and lifting all you have to do is pump the handle down which collapses the handlebar then pull the strap that sits in the basket. The base folds in half and you can put the strap over your shoulder and off you go. Love it!
If I’m honest I don’t have any complaints just yet – maybe I’ve found “the one”! There are however a few little things that I’d like to tweak on the accessories. The first would be the rain cover. It is easy to attach but I would like a flap that I could open to access baby or to allow some air through. Secondly the footmuff is very snug and I fleece lining is lovely and soft but I personally would like the footmuff to come up higher and be able to fold over. I have to still use a blanket for my little girl’s upper body. Lastly, as much as I adore my changing bag, it is rather on the large size for everyday use. It’s superb for long days out or even overnight stays. I believe the size of the bag is in case you upgrade your iCandy Peach Stroller to a double. I would like to be able to purchase a smaller bag for daily use maybe a smaller messenger type bag would do.
