Bought for a winter baby in a Scandinavian winter. The emmaljunga edge is warm, solid and surprisingly nippy.
Each one is hand built to order and you can really see the build quality. This is a pram that will last you through multiple children and still be in good enough condition to hand down or sell on. We often see vintage models looking as good as new here.
The materials are excellent quality and the feel of the pram is solid with great handle.
You can choose from various chassis models but the main choice is fixed wheel vs swivel, lockable, front wheels. The fixed chassis is much bouncier but to turn you need to press the handle down and use the suspension. There's a knack to it, but I'm glad I got the swivel wheels as after a c section it was much easier to manoeuvre. Both chassis have excellent, adjustable suspension and the angle of the carrycot can be altered.
The seat is comfy, well padded and can lie flat - it's a great seat for long days out and long walks.
The basket is big, accessible and strong. The pram also comes with a rain cover and there's a nifty sunshade and mozzie net built into the hood in a zip compartment. The hood has a vent panel at the back for peeking at your child in forward facing mode or for ventilation (it's mesh covered)
Whilst not a true off-roader, the edge copes really well with everything I've thrown at it so far, including snow, gravel, rough tracks and fields. Kerbs are no problem and it's never shown any sign of being likely to tip over, even with multiple bags clipped on the handle.
The carrycot is beautifully insulated and can serve as a crib. It has a vented ( close able) base for airflow in summer. Our little one sleeps like a dream in it. The cot is large and friends who have children up to one say they still use it.
The base also has a rocker function if you're using it as a crib. The attachment to the chassis isn't terribly easy - I always struggle with it but we rarely collapse the pram so it's not an issue.
And therein lie the disadvantages of the system. It is big, heavy (although not at all heavy to push, it's beautifully balanced) and it's a pain to fold down and put in the car. This is not a pram to fold up and chuck in the car. It's not a pram which you can bump up flights of steps or have in a small flat (try the Viking model for that!) and it's not a pram that's fun to nip on and off the bus with. I personally struggle to fold it down, even two handed. It heavy and it takes up the entire boot of our car (an estate.) it does not fit in most hatchback models (we know, because we were buying a car at the time and we tried it out in multiple marques!)
This pram excels if you can use it 'from home' for long walks. It lives in our hallway, never gets folded and we go out daily, no matter if it's twenty below freezing, for three or four miles. It is basically an incredibly comfy bed on wheels. It's the rolls Royce of prams - old fashioned (in a good way!) in concept but modern materials and styling.
We have also bought a super light stroller for those 'chucking in the car to go to the shops' times and a reversible stroller that will do us until ds is out of pushchairs completely. So the edge doesn't do everything, but what it does, it does well. I really enjoy our daily walks in it, it's truly a pleasure to own.
