“ Peppa Pig / Kid's Play Pushchair, Peppa Pig. „
My daughter had just started to toddle at around 11 months, so the time came to buy her first pram. I was looking for something robust that could handle being thrown around everywhere as she grew, and also something that would be easy to push so I came across this Halsall Peppa Pig Push-Along Pram.
This pram cost £25.99 (October 2010), and I think its great value for money. It was very quick and easy to assemble. The handle can be adjusted to either 40cm or 50 cm which is a great feature as my daughter is quite short for her age. There is a clip in the main body of the pram so that it can be used as a carrycot but we have never done this. It comes with a Peppa Pig material sleeping bag, and matching hood. I don't think the hood has be very well thought about as it can only just stretch over the main body of the pram, if there is a doll in the pram the hood comes away from the main body and just sits on top of the doll.
We love this pram; it has really stood the test of time. It is now 8 months old and the only problem we have had is one of the mud guards above a wheel has come off, but easily put back on again.
Now the weather has been brightening up a little my daughter loves to take this pram out into the garden to take her dolls for a picnic, she can easily push it over grass, and being outside hasn't damaged the pram in the slightest.
It is recommended for ages 18 months+ but can be suitable from when toddlers are safe on their feet. We used it from 11 months.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for their daughter's first pram. I'm giving it 4 stars, only due to the fact the hood is a little short and the mud guard has fallen off.
We have had this for about 18 months now and my daughter still loves it! We got it as her first pram when she first started walking as it is smaller with a lower handle than a lot of the realistic prams. It also reminded me of the ladybird prams we used to have when I was a kid!
It is simple to assemble and has withstood daily use being dragged around the house by our active toddler for the past 18 months! It is recommended from for 18+ months but is really suitable from as soon as they are steady on their feet (it wouldn't be stable to use as a walker as it would tip easily).
We have had a few occasions where the hood has slipped off whilst she has been playing and sometimes one of the wheel covers pops off but they are very easy to slip back on again.
The unit does clip apart so they can use the top part as an infant carrier but we don't tend to use this as this then encourages her to use the wheel base a bit like a skateboard! However, the clip which detaches it isn't easy so she can't detach it herself.
The handle adjusts to different positions as well, so now my daughter is a litte bigger we have moved the handle around a bit so it is a little higher.
It is more suiatlbe for smaller dolls but she can squeeze her Baby Annabelle in on occasion.
