Which one is best for day to day use? We travel in the car for journeys at weekends but also do the school run and plenty of other things by foot during the week?

I like both of them at the moment, but want to know which would be better for pushing with one hand (whilst minding older DD) and for folding/manoveurability?

I think I would go with the Strawberry TBH. I used to have a Cameleon and thought it was fab, and then bought a second one after having had several iCandy's and other pushchairs....and TBH....I love most of the iCandy's and I would get a Strawberry without hesitation.

Is the strawberry just as good from birth? I know their pushchair seems better (seems to move more than the cameleon). Thanks for the advice Tiggy smile

I dont see why it wouldn't be! I had a Cam carrycot for my first born and if I had a choice again, I would probably get something like a Strawberry for another baby. The carrycots look beautiful!

I considered both and went with the Strawberry. Mainly because it folds with the pushchair seat in place ( facing in either direction). And it's prettier smile

It pushes perfectly with one hand and I think would suit your needs very well.

I'll try that again, shall I hmm

It also folds one handed. Takes a bit of practice initially but is easy once you have the knack.

STRAWBERRY!!!! i now have the strawberry and love it, had the bugaboo for my first son and the quality was shocking. I dont know if it was just mine or not but after having the frame changed twice because of being faulty, I couldnt take a third time and sold it to buy the icandy strawberry. my boy had the carrycot with the grey flavour pack, which was stunning and he loved his carrycot very much but now he is is the seat with a black flavour pack, love having the option to change colour! the push of the strawberry is flawless and gets around town and out in the sticks equally as good!

I hate the strawberry, it's very heavy to push compared to my cherry, and the cold is very big.
