iCandy Apple Stroller
Advantages: Built to last, built for comfort and built for style.
Disadvantages: Doesnt fold small and has a 'nack' to folding.
"Mammy's just going to the doctors, i wont be long" shouting to my 2 little terrors. I had been under the weather, a lot of symptoms but no answers then a few little checks & tests by my doc. He looks at me and asks if its possible for me to be pregnant. "NOT A CHANCE" i shouted but the test said otherwise. Anyhow the pregnancy news settled in and we started to prepare and purchase. Having 2 other children, i new the score and was aware of previous items i had purchased for them and what i will and will not buy for this one. I had always wanted an iCandy system for my other 2 but as its very expensive we just couldnt afford it at the time... so with baby number 3 being my last! I made sure we saved and saved for our iCandy. I new exactly which one i wanted and i wanted everything with it! There i was 7 months pregant and it was time to order our pram, it had to be the iCandy Black Magic with all the trimmings. I can genuinely say this pram was unreal, i loved it! The only pram i ever got attached too.

Alot of people commented on my black magic system, the gleaming chrome frame, expensive looking fabric and stylish designs did not go a miss. This really was a pleasure to push, the large air filled wheels made the ride smoother for my newborn. Then when he started using seat unit he always looked comfy but still loads of room to grow in. Its a very sturdy system and well designed. There is only 2 negatives about this whole pram 1 it is large so doesnt fold too small and 2 its tricky at first to fold down but you soon get the hang of it. Yes its expensive but you pay for what you get!It was such a shame when it came time to sell my iCandy, genuinely but in end it did not suit my life style.. I needed a little stroller.
This will not dissapoint you, by far one of the best made pushchairs thats built to last a long time.
Summary: You pay for what you get. Yes its expensive but the price reflects the item! No.1 pram in my opinion
