We had a Graco baby set which contained a stroller however as the stroller was becoming old it began to begun a little weak and so we put it in the bin. Emily our youngest daughter was mortified that we were getting rid of her buggy even though the girls have a pram and they ended up constantly fighting over the pram. In the end we gave in and knew we had to buy a new buggy for the girls and as Emily is a big fan of Peppa pig we bought this one from Smyths toys.
The buggy cost us just short of £7 which seemed like a pretty good price considering it is a character item which of course are always more highly priced. The thing I really liked about this buggy was that not only is it a character that Emily loves but it can also be folded up when not being played with just like a real buggy.
The buggy is meant for ages 3 and up however I really don't see any reason for this and Emily was just turned 2 when we bought the buggy and she plays with it perfectly well and there are no dangers as far as I have found.
The buggy is an umbrella style and has little plastic handles and small wheels with the Peppa Pig logo on them, the frame is pink in colour in keeping with the Peppa Pig colour and then the material has little pictures of Peppa Pig and all of her friends on it along with a larger picture on the back of it.
The buggy is really lightweight and if it doesn't have a doll or something else that my daughter has decided to push around inside it then it does often tip up as Emily pushes down on the handles so hard. Emily puts just about anything in the buggy she loves picking things up from around the front room and pushing them about, I have no idea what the attraction is but she just loves pushing it.
Emily loves this buggy but she struggles to fasten her dolls in so we have to do that for her, if we don't do it fast enough the buggy is lightweight enough that she has been known to throw it at us. The buggy is cute in my opinion, the pink and the blue colours look lovely together and Emily enjoys naming all the characters on the material which is also helping with her speech as we are finding that although she is now talking there is only really family that can understand her but with repetitive naming she is becoming clearer.
This buggy is really good value and we would give it 5 stars.
For the past month or so, Kai has had a particular interest in sorting through and organising all of his toys. He will move them from shelf to shelf, box to box, room to room. He has such attention to detail! We have a very small, pretend shopping basket and he had started placing things in there and taking them all over the place.
I first thought about getting him a small dolly pushchair when he first started doing this but only got around to getting him one a few weeks ago. I know some parents will wonder why I bought my son a dolls pushchair, but I'm not one to limit him to just boy toys and I like to see him explore new toys and experience new things, not just the same old toys.
While I was looking for a dolly pushchair which wasn't *too* girly I came across this 1, which has a nice balance of a blue and pink colour scheme and I ended up buying it. It was only £7 which I think is an excellent price and well worth it. Kai is only 13 months so although this is very small it is slightly too tall for him, but he can still push it around and he doesn't tend to grip the handles anyway, he just pushes against it.
It is best suited to children over 3 years according to the information provided on the website that I bought it from, however Kai can still use it reasonably easily. He needs help at times especially when it's full, and because it doesn't hold that much I often need to help him try to understand that he will need to come back for the rest once he's sorted out the toys already in there.
The wheels move freely and don't jam up, which I was quite surprised by as it is so cheap. It does feel quite cheap and not very sturdy but it is decent quality and hasn't broken in the 3 weeks if daily use Kai has had out of it so far. It is easy to store as it just folds down and putting it back up is quick too. Kai wasn't put off by the slightly girly design and he really enjoys taking his toys around the house. He's taken it in the garden onto the grass and mud a few times and the wheels were easy to clean with a disinfectant wipe afterwards.
The pushchair has kept Kai's attention and he has got so much use out of it. It doesn't look shabby or worn after the amount it has being used and I like how light weight and easy to transport it is - it can be folded down and out in the car so it is not limited to just being used at home.
My little girl is Peppa pig mad and as she is 2 last birthday she decided she wanted a push chair and as I had some vouchers we sat together and as soon as she seen Peppa pig she wanted this one so I paid around £11 including delivery and waited for it to be delivered.
The pushchair itself has a metal frame with a canvas seat which stretches over it to create the seat. The material its made with is well made and there is a t bar harness for little one to hold the dolls steady in the push chair it is not adjustable but medium size dolly's and bears sit well in it.
The pushchair is the perfect height for my little girl to push now and she is 3 in January she will be able to use it for another good year without out growing it so a 2 year life of the toy is really good in my opinion.
The handles have grips on so that little ones hands do not get sore from pushing it around a lot and make it easy and comfortable to use. The wheels are made of plastic but they are thick and chunky so that even with bumps and scrapes they stand up well move freely and allow little one to push the pushchair very easily.
I was rather surprised at how durable this push chair is as I have lost faith in a lot of Peppa pig toys but this is well made and so far lasted a year with daily use and is still in perfect working order.
The pushchair is suitable for children 3 and up but my little girl got it when she was 2 and it was fine she was able to use it with ease and there are no small parts so I did not have any problem with her using it.
Over all this is a fantastic little push chair full of colour and has Peppa pig stamped all over it so any fan will love it instantly. Its free moving and has given my daughter hours of play and imagination. A must have for young girls especially for Peppa pig fans.
Now my daughter is coming up to two she is really getting into playing properly with all of her toys. She loves her dolls and enjoys pushing them around the house in this pushchair and her other pram and cuddling them. I purchased this pushchair as her first one and as she loves as Peppa pig she constantly points at the fabric and names the different characters and also uses it to push her Peppa beanies around.
---The features of the toy:
This pushchair was really easy to put up as it is similar to an actual full size pushchair and it folds like the umbrella style pushchairs to quite a small size. It goes up in seconds and it is secured by a couple of fixings which is great as it was ready for action straight away and there was no danger of parts falling off as they were all factory fitted.
The pushchair is made of a tubular pink steel folding frame with pink material with Peppa Pig and all of her friends on the material, it has and has pink wheels, it has a pink pads on each handle which makes it easier to hold and is better to grip onto. It also has a fixed strap so that the dolls do not slip out. It is supposed to be suitable for dolls up to 40cm in length and most dolls fit in securely. It is quite lightweight but it does not support when you lean on it as it is so lightweight.
My daughter loves this pushchair and is constantly swapping the dolls in and out. It is really easy for her to manoeuvre around the house and as she is only 21 months it is important to have something lightweight and durable and as she walks on her own she can quite easily push it around the house.
I think this is a really good pushchair as it is lightweight and it is easy to fold up so that it can be transported out and about and as it is so quick to put up and down so I often use it as a bribe to get my daughter out of the house as it is easy to fold it down and it fits easily in the back of the car.
The recommended age is 36 months to 6 years but I feel that children much younger can quite happily play with this as there are no major hazards that stop younger children playing with it. It would probably be advisable for children under 3 to be closely supervised as it is possible just in case they try to pull the levers up at the side and fold it down, it wouldn't be good as fingers might get trapped.
I think this is a great first pushchair for little girls, or boys for that matter. I think that the price is reasonable for a pushchair as it cost around £6.99 from Smyth's and usually Peppa Pig items are a few pounds more for the print.
