Very tempted by the icandy apple, but worried about making a very expensive mistake.In many ways seems like my dream pram rear facing, carrycot etc. Concerned about its weight and how easy it is to steer.Any advice out there?

I have the Apple and I love it, really love it. It's fairly heavy to lift in and out of the boot for example with the seat unit on but it's lovely to push and easy to steer. Was very handy with the car seat on <<bad mummy>> and I used it constantly. Really comfy seat and DD loved it. I want another dc just so I can use it again

I had one - I actually regret selling it, but we had a smaller car at the time so it was a pain.

Really loved the pushchair, and there is now a mothercare own version - so it's still quite a current style iyswim?

I wouldn't consider getting one unless you don't need to use public transport or your car can easily accomodate it. It doesn't matter how much you love it, removing the wheels to get it in the car is going to be tiresome at some point!

i have an apple converted to pear, i love it, its heavy but its fitted the bill perfectly in single and even more so as a double, i love it, however we didnt drive, me and dp just passed and now face searching for a car to fit the buggy!!

I love my apple. It's so easy to push that I can easily steer one-handed. You definitely need a decent sized boot though and my daughter is a bit slumpy in the seat at the moement. Buy it!

I'm planning dc2 and was thinking about doubles, such as P&T but every time I see a Pear out and about, it convinces me the Apple was the right move and the Pear will be great. Saw another one this week and I'm almost tempted to order it. Not even ttc yet!
