A great push. I used to work for this company, and so I know first hand from demonstrating this one often that is a great buggy, especially for your first. It looks great when it spins too and is very simple to do. The colour packs for it are lovely too.
We'd had our eyes on the mothercare spin since the day we became pregnant as my brother had highly recommended it. Lets just say - we were not disappointed by it! We loved it!!
My favourite feature is the unique spin mechanism that allows the baby to facing you or in front facing mode. This was perfect for the growing up transition. When he was a baby we'd always have him facing us and as he grew older and more inquisitive we placed him forward facing so he could be nosy.
I loved that you could turn the seat into a moses basket which was absolutely perfect for my newborn. It was so simple to put it into the moses mode (just a simple few clips!) and my baby looked so comfortable and felt very safe in it.
Another big plus about this pushchair is that we purchased the maxi cosi car seat adaptors so that when my baby was sleeping on the journey to our location we could simply pop the car seat onto the pushchair frame! Simple as that!!
We had the burnt orange mothercare spin which we thought was much more appealing than the black!
The only downside to the pushchair is that its very heavy! but thats not enough to put me off at all!
My mum purchased the mothercare spin for me as a present. When my son was first born I used the carry cot mode. It was very snugly and comfy looking, my son had no trouble staying asleep in there once we got home from our walk. We also purchased the maxi cost car seat and adaptors which were fantastic. How amazing to be able to click the car seat on an off the pushchair with no trouble at all.
I loved the stylish look of this pushchair (I purchased it in black) the built in spin mode, for me was a feature I didn't use all too often as I preferred to have my son facing me when he was younger. As my son got to about 5 months old he started to complain every time he was strapped into the pushchair as it didn't sit up straight enough for him to sit up properly and to look at the world. It was more at a slant. So I had to buy I buggy which enabled him to sit up straighter.
The mothercare spin is very easy to push, but can be a pain to fold as you have to remove the seat and the chassis can be a bit bulky.
I was very pleased with the good as it would pull down for complete coverage which I liked for wind protection, the rain cover was very easy to fit and kept my son completely dry.
Overall this is a lovely pushchair for when your baby is really little, but I personally don't this this pushchair is built for older babies in mind.
Well where do I start with the mothercare spin. We absolutely loved everything about it.
We purchased the mothercare spin in burnt orange and it was such a beautiful colour.
My favourite feature of the mothercare spin was the built in spin feature - you could have the baby facing towards you or facing away.
We started with our newborn in the carry cot mode where he could sleep snugly without being disturbed - it looked extremely comfortable for him. We also purchased the car seat add ons so that when our baby was asleep in the car we didnt have to disturb him - just simply move the car seat from car to pushchair - so simple!!
When he got a bit older (could support his own head) we started putting the pram in sitting up mode so he could look around and be nosy whilst he was sitting in the pram!
The only downside to the pram is that it's very heavy and a little expensive but we think it was worth every penny!!
When I had my son I had a beautiful silver cross pram, but as much as I loved it I found it very heavy and not very compact, this meant it could be difficult to get into the boot of the car so when looking for a pram this time I wanted something a little lighter and more compact. I had looked around on the internet and in various pram shops and had more or less settled on the Quinny buzz until a trip to mothercare changed my mind.
While having a browse around the store I happened to notice the sales assistant demonstrating the mothercare Spin to another expectant mother. Firstly I was struck by the design, as it bore a resemblance to the quinny but the chassis looked like it would fold a little smaller but what really grabbed my attention was the unique design features.
Suitable from birth it starts life as a pram, complete with padded pram liner and cover. The handle height can be easily adjusted to accommodate various heights to make pushing the pram more comfortable and there is a bumper bar the goes across the front which is simple to remove with the push of a button. The front wheels are lockable, meaning you can either have them in swivel mode for easy steering or locked forward if you prefer. Folding it down is also quick and easy, you simply lift off the body, and with a one handed operation you drop the handle, push a button and lift and the chassis fold closed in a very compact manner (I could easily fit it into the boot of my VW Beetle). There is also a basket underneath which fold with the chassis.
When baby is a little bigger the liner is removed and the pram becomes a pushchair with a five point harness. What is unusual is that this is achieved using straps rather than the ratchet type mechanism I had in my previous pram. The back of the pushchair can be adjusted from leaning back to completely upright using a strap and clip at the back of the chair, and can also be lay completely flat using a handle at the top of the seat. (I don't think I've explained that well, it's far easier to demonstrate)
No to the part I really loved, and the feature the 'Spin' gets it's name from. With a quick twist of the barrel in the middle of the handle you can spin the pram/pushchair from parent to outward facing. Meaning if your baby wants to watch the world go by the can face away from you but when they get tired and need to see you with a simple movement you can turn them to face you. No messing about, no having to dismantle the pushchair to change it around, it's genius. I love that I can turn my baby to see me and to see around her with no effort or stress and I can do this while walking without having to stop. What is also great is you can release the handle (the way you do to fold the pram) and drop it down so that if you are out and you need to feed baby you can do this while they are in the pushchair without having the handle get in the way, or if you are at a table you can pull the pushchair right up like a highchair meaning baby can feel part of the company without having to disturb them.
This is just a beautifully made, cleverly designed pram. Even the footmuff which was included with it for use with the pushchair it lined with a soft cosy velvet-like material and the rain cover has a zip across the front meaning you can access baby without needing to remove the whole thing.
The chassis is compatible with various car seat brands through use of adaptors available from mothercare. I used the maxi cosi cabriofix with mine.
I could not recommend this pram/pushchair highly enough. And if I could I would give it ten stars.
