“ Brand: Mothercare / Type: Standard / Number of Seats: Single Seat „
I purchased this pram for my baby girl and it didn't disappoint, i only have a small car boot however you take off the two back wheels when folding down so I was able to fit it in no problem.
I used the pram every day and bought a car seat when baby was first born which fits onto the chassis of the pram so if baby fell asleep I didn't need to disturb her, I could just lift the car seat and click it onto the chassis.
It is very easy to put down, you just press both the large circles on the side and lift the seat section up and it slides off. The only problem I did find was when my little girl was a bit older I wanted to have her facing forward however, whenever I put the seat that way it seemed to get stuck and I did find it a struggle getting it off so I ended up keeping her facing me. This may have just been a one off fault as when I went in to mothercare they told me to try oiling it as my guarantee had ran out by then - it was over 12months.
Overall the look of the pram is lovely and several of my friends commented on how comfortable baby looked whilst we were out walking and the large rear wheels certainly make for a comfortable ride.
The handlebars are also adjustable which is great if you have older children who like to help by pushing their new baby around in the pram, and you can adjust the height based on how tall or small you are which helps reduce back ache, it is also just nice to have the choice too.
I joined a baby walking group which involved going around a local park and I did on occasion find that the wet leaves would get stuck in the smaller front wheels just under the arch however using a stick I could easily push them out, but again that would only be annoying if you were at the park quite regularly.
The basket underneath is tiny and has a little Velcro fastening but it was sufficient for me. I also got a rain over and pump for the wheels in the package when I purchased my pram.
I would recommend this pram for your baby as is well worth the money.
When I was pregnant with my son I spent hours looking at various pushchairs/prams but kept coming back to the mothercare my choice as it ticked every box.
It comes in lots of different colours and comes in a choice of three or four wheels. I tried both options in my local Mothercare store and liked the three wheeled option best. It is incredibly easy to push - even with one hand!
The basket at the bottom is absolutely tiny. Once you have the raincover in it then it is full. The handle is height adjustable and very easy to adjust with one hand.
You get the raincover, newborn liner and cosytoes included and everything about from the hood is removable so you can pop it in the wash when needed. The raincover is very difficult to put on when it's in pram mode but no problem when it's in pushchair mode.
I like how you can have the seat unit facing either way. When our 3 month old is in then I have her in pram mode facing me but when I have my 2 year old then he faces forward chatting to everyone we pass.
It is very easy to turn it from pram to pushchair mode. My husband is very happy to push it along as he doesn't think it looks too girlie!
This Mothercare Mychoice pram / pushchair was a present from the inlaws and cost just under £200 for the chassis itself and then the pram cot is extra and about the same price again however the great thing about this unit is the fact that it will mean that we will not have to buy a seperate pushcahir for when baby gets bigger as it can be adapted from a pram into a pushchair. We actually went for the three wheel option as shown in the picture from Dooyoo as I will use it when I go running.
The rugged wheels are suitable for more rural terrains for when we go for walks in the countryside but also can be used for when I go running when it is in pushchair mode when my daughter is a bit older, I have already wracked up a fair few miles walking with this and find it very easy to operate and at about 13kg not too heavy.
It was easy to set up and the pramm /pushchair chassis can be set up to be either front facing or rear facing depending on how you want your baby to be positioned. The handlebar is adjustable and the main brake and wheel brakes are easy to operate. A pump is provided for the tyres however I have found that they hold their pressure pretty well so far and have only topped it off the once and to be honest it was probably not needed.
I find the whole unit very easy to collapse, in all about four movements and the whole thing is ready to be stored away and all of the collapse points are numbered so you can remember the correct order and a first timer has little problem once they locate the numbers and it folds down quite small, certainly compared to some of the other ones OI came across.
This pram is easy to steer and the padded pram ensures that my baby has a safe and secure journey. The hood is useful for when it rains or when the sun is shinning and there is a storage tray on the bottom for the large quantities of baby stuff you need to carry.
A great pram that hopefully will last for the years that I need it.
We opted for the My4 travel system (previously My Choice 4) because we wanted a chassis that we could use with our car seat (Maxi Cosi) rather than have to take the pushchair bit everywhere.
In short this is a great travel system, easy to fold down, although there is is no way you could do it whislt holding the baby, and the wheels pop on and off shoud you need to make it more compact.
The pushchair easily converts from carrycot to pushchair and I have even managed to do with a sleeping baby in it! The handle changes height swiftly, great for short ladies and tall men or vice versa!
Yes the chassis is heavy but it is sturdy, great for off roading and controls well up and down pavements.
The only downside is the shopping basket is tiny, once you have the rain cover in there is no room for anything else and you can't hang bags on the handle.
The price isn't high compared to others and it comes in a variety of colours and my husband liked it because it wasn't too girly, it's a blokie pram in his words!
When i was expecting my first baby my dad offered to buy the travel system, he also advised buying an ISO FIX car base for the car.
We set out one weekend and i was overwhelmed by the number of different styles and the crazy prices.
The Bugaboo stood out to me the most, but this was terribly expensive.
We went into mothercare where we came across the My Choice 4 travel system. It is designed by Quinny and far cheaper than the bugaboo. An employee gave us a demonstration. I was very impressed and knew instantly that this was the pram i wanted.
Firstly i will run through the costs -
4 wheel pushchair chassis (this also comes in a 3 wheel) £190
Seat Unit £180 for every colour but cream (£170)
If you wish to use it as a travel system the maxi cosi CabrioFix car seat is £115
The pushchair chassis comes with a fairly large basket which is waterproof and has a velcro fastening lid.
It has an adjustable handlebar, a main brake and wheel brakes.
The chassis can be adjusted from car seat mode to pram mode easily with one swift repositioning move.
The pushchair can either be parent facing or outwards facing.
The seat unit can be turned from a pram function to pushchair seat easily using some buckles.
It comes in 5 colours - black, cream, grey, red or lime green.
It comes with a raincover, cosytoe, pram apron, quilted pram liner, padded head hugger and chest pads.
A "handle bar" can be added when in pushchair mode - to keep baby in and good for toys. It also comes with a pump to pump up the tyres on the wheels.
The seat also has a window on the hood which you can velcro shut or roll open.
The maxi Cosi car seat comes with a removeable head hugger, chest pads and a pull out hood.
To collapse, the seat unit/car seat is taken off and it is an easy 4 step process to collapse the chassis. it is also numbered to remind you.
This was the easiest pushchair/pram to collapse out of all the ones i tried that day. It also folds up the smallest too.
My son is very comfy in this pushchair, it is very very easy to move about too.
The only downside to this is that the handle bar scrapes along the floor when you put the chassis up, scratching it.
Also the pram collapses when taken off the chassis so baby can not be left to sleep in it on the floor or anything like that, although this is good to save room in car when transporting it!!
