DH friends have got an iCandy and so DH now wants one for our baby when it arrives. Having not looked at any prams or anything yet I was pretty openminded...

Then I saw the have a Strawberry model. I must own it! I love strawberries to the point I have a Japanese card wallet with strawberries on it, a bag with strawberries on it... There is even 'Strawberry' in the name of our street name...

So... That's the worst reason ever right? I have since looked into it further and decided it looks pretty damn good and it is within our budget! Anyone got an iCandy Strawberry? I think it looks much better than their other models anyway. Is it a good one to get?

Pushchair destiny? Lol

They're not out till the autumn but I am seriously considering selling my iCandy Apple and Bee to get one. Reviews look good. <sits on hands>

i have bought pushchairs because they are eye catching and lovely, even though they may not be pratical, about to do it again grin

I bought the iCandy Cherry limited edition because I fell in love with the changing bag. That's a REALLY shallow reason. Thankfully I've not regretted the crazy decision one bit. The pram that came with my bag is excellent grin

The Strawberry isn't out yet like the PP says but it is gorgeous smile There are lots of previews going on at present (details on the iCandy website) so it would be worth you having a look. There are some photos on of my daughter in the seat. I love the fleece fabrics, one handed fold with the seat on (and it remembers how you last had the seat unit ie reclined or straight). It's got a great basket that can be folded flat if you aren't using it and a pun net storage pocket under the seat for a raincover, changing kit or things like a purse, keys or camera that you don't want on display. It's also got the largest iCandy pushchair seat so will last from birth to three easily.

Lol OuchFrigg crossed posts with me smile I would love a Strawberry smile

There's a Strawberry in Notts at the end of July...Better check where the store is as it's not my closest.

suzie38 Sat 16-Jul-11 15:03:39

The shop also sells those Zen pushchairs.

Guildfordnanny Sat 16-Jul-11 15:11:03

Babyzen? I adore mine smile I use it nearly everyday as it sits flat in a corner and is simple to put up and down (looks faffy but it's not really). The only thing I don't like is the straps slip ie get bigger easily. I keep having to tighten them in the course of an afternoon. My hubby has wowed all the local shop keepers by flashing the lights at them as he passes lol! I don't know if that's a good thing or not!

suzie38 Sat 16-Jul-11 15:15:49

LOL...Yes the Babyzen though i won't get one of those even if they do look very cool.

OuchFriggingBludger Sat 16-Jul-11 15:21:29

oooh those look so cool!

will not buy one,will not buy one,will not buy one,will not buy one,will not buy one,will not buy one,will not buy one,will not buy one...

Guildfordnanny Sat 16-Jul-11 15:37:52

I love it so much that it will be one of the last pushchairs out of here smile

suzie38 Sat 16-Jul-11 16:12:20

Don't say that!!!

Kayano Sat 16-Jul-11 18:00:14

Well I have just got in from town and saw a catering van with a strawberry on the side, drove down strawberry place - a different street to where I live - and past the strawberry pub.

These are all signs and I shall def. Be buying

Guildfordnanny Sat 16-Jul-11 18:43:58

Aha but what colour will you get? Assam, Earl Grey, Cranberry or Pomegrante??

Kayano Sat 16-Jul-11 19:33:06

Got to be pomegranate ! Those pics were SO helpful thank you all!

Tarlia Sat 16-Jul-11 19:58:28

What is a "flavour pack"?

Guildfordnanny Sat 16-Jul-11 20:46:35

I believe it is the hood, apron and Liner - basically the coloured parts of the pushchair. Its a little cheeky really because the price is for the basic black chassis but you have to then buy the flavour pack of your choice to finish it off!

Guildfordnanny Sat 16-Jul-11 20:49:18

Sorry it's Elderberry not Cranberry - which pushchair has cranberry??? I have been boggling myself thinking Cranberry and Pomegrante were two reds lolololol! Silly me!

Tarlia Sat 16-Jul-11 20:52:47

Oh I see, thanks for that. I was imagining something that smells of whichever fruit! shock

superjobee Sat 16-Jul-11 21:04:35
