I bought the iCandy pram from Mini-Kids and they went out of their way to demonstrate it and show me how to set it up. They also gave me the best deal and will deliver anywhere in the country. I love the pram because it looks classy and trendy and is very hard-wearing. Would definitely recommend it. (read more)

I don't understand the hype with the Peach edition. Its so miniature looking that it looks strange rather than cute. I think think the Apple is much more stylish in terms of design and size. I also love that you can change up the hood and footmuffs with bright funky colours. Also, It is not that heavy as others say. The only shame is one tyre was punctured but I guess all Prams with air filled tyres will get that problem. Having said that I think air tyres give a comfier ride for the Baby... (read more)

I just wanted to say I LOVE my icandy - I think people only write reviews when they have a problem but never write anything when things are great - so Im taking the time to have my say. I bought my apple jogger for my first child, my daughter Annie May - I didnt really have any help around me at this time, so was in a sea of pushchairs without a clue! I did research on the internet and was more confused after that then I was before going on! So i thought, i know I will go into a shop and I... (read more)

I purchased a black 09 iCandy Apple 3 Wheel jogger pushchair with Maxi Cosi car seat and carrycot from a baby store about 15 miles from me as you can't buy online. I thought this would give me a good interface between seller / manufacturer and myself in the event of a problem. This was wrong. The pram was ok whilst my little girl was small. I used the carrycot and it was very nice. Problems arose after the first year when the front jogger wheel encountered problems. It tipped when going down... (read more)

I have found the apple a lot heavier than any other stroller I, or even my friends, have owned previously. This makes it feel very strudy and durable, but on the flip side it isn't the easiest to get push round the supermarket, especially one-handedly with a todler! On the whole, I haven't minded the weight though, it's been a great choice for us as we enjoy long walks and so have subjected it to rough terrains often! The tires can be prone to puncturing but general upkeep was expected and... (read more)

I have had my apple for almost a year now and am still extremly happy with it. I am currently 7 months pregnant with my second, and looking into buying the pear converter to turn it into a double. Thought I'd have my say and I fear the apple isn't being wholly appreciated in the way it should! There is a knack to collapsing the apple, and it is quite a heavy chassis. The grandparents really cant get to grips with the design, but for my personal use I've had no qualms whatsoever. It has a... (read more)

I bought an Apple icandy for my 3 month old and have never looked back. It is so much easier to push, turn around in shops and is NOT heavy as some people say! It's light, roomy and stylish.
It's easy to take apart and fold up in the car. We also have turned the seat round so that the baby can face us and face forward.
Some people say they would not recommend it, but then use it again for their second child!! Says it all really!! (read more)

I bought an icandy apple fours years ago and I wouldn't recommend it to anybody. It started off as a brilliant pram, that was really easy to steer, however, as my son got bigger (and heavier) the chassis just couldn't cope and it became really difficult to push - always veering off to the side - and my arms would hurt by the time I got home from my walk.

Really great travel system. I did go through a few stores and ended up with a Baby store in St Albans. The service was very good and they took me around the full range. I spotted the iCandy Apple straight away and fell in love with the looks. It is conservative in a stylish way. I liked that I could mix and match the hood and the liners and I purchased two flavour packs as I like a change.
The carry cot was huge and deep and it can be folded away afterwards. I really like the fact that it... (read more)

When your icandy apple arrives you'll find it hard to keep your hands off it! It's a very aesthetic pushchair and very spacious for your little one.

When choosing our travel system, we were told that the I-Candy Apple had been built to incorporate the best bits of the Quinny Buzz and the Bugaboo, and fell in a similar price bracket.
