“ Brand: You & Me / Type: Doll Buggy „
We received this pushchair from our next door neighbours. Their son had been given it but his dad didn't want him to play with it because it was a pushchair and because it was pink (how sad, this has turned out to be one of my little boys favourite toys and I think boys should be free to play with "girls" toys but hey, that's a whole other discussion) so we were very pleased to receive it.
> We've had this pushchair for about two years now and it's also one of my little girls favourite toys so I think it goes to show that some toys just really stand the test of time. However this is not a toy pushchair I would have bought myself for my little girl. It is cheap and tacky looking, it's not very well made, its flimsy, its noisy and it annoys me most of the time but then my kids love it so we continue to have it around.
> The You and Me range can be found at Toys r Us and features a range of baby doll related products such as actual dolls, clothing and accessories. It's not a range I'm really familiar with and I think this is only one of the items we have from the range and I can't say that after seeing this pushchair I would rush to Toys r Us to buy more.
The pushchair has a metal frame which folds up fairly easily although as this pushchair is fairly small we usually just leave it up in the garage ready to be pushed and played with. At the bottom of the frame are four blue plastic wheels which sort of wobble about a bit on their fixings so its these and the metal frame that really make a noise whilst my kids are pushing it. It's especially noises against a hard surface such as the concrete of the pavement so when we take our dolls for a walk its very noisy.
The seat is made of a flimsy material that is held in place at the top of the pushchair by two little loops. On the seat portion it is held in place by slipping over two little metal poles and in to place. This often comes un-slipped and I find I am always having to slot it back, very annoying! The material is white, pink and blue stripes so does look quite girly and matches my little girls dolls. There is a little pink fabric strap that works as a seat belt. This has a little plastic loop on it and you secure the belt by threading it through the loop and over and out again. This is very difficult for a young child to do so either I have to do it or we just leave it fastened and slot the baby dolls legs through which is again a bit annoying.
The pushchair is easy to push. There are two curved plastic handles that are just the right height for my little girl to hold on to and push so that is good.
All in all, this is not a great pushchair but its one my kids love and I guess that is the main point really.
