Mothercare Trenton Deluxe
Advantages: All in one, washable, reasonable price
Disadvantages: big and not forward facing.
This was my husbands choice which to honest I wasn't as keen but I wanted him to feel involved and comfortable pushing our new baby around.
Mothercare Trenton deluxe pushchair is everything in one.
*Pushchair - You have the forward facing pushchair that has a parent tray in front off the handle that has 2 cup holders and a box that's great for sunglasses.
By that box is a clock and a temperature gage. Underneath the pushchair is a huge shopping basket that drops if baby is lying flat asleep so you are still able to pop shopping in basket without waking baby.
The child also gets a tray at the front off the pushchair this I put her drink in and some snacks. This tray also moves to the side so its easy to get child in and out of pushchair.
The pushchair has a large hood that can move either front or back so it keeps the sun out of the child's eyes.
A large cosy toe that goes from under the child's feet right up to child's face to keep them warm and seems to be extremely wind proof.
There are 4 wheels double at the front and single at the back. The front could lock if needed but I never did. The double wheels make the pushchair very easy to control and there is also breaks at the back.
*Carry cot - When Madeline arrived she was 5lb 4oz and seemed more like a doll in this pushchair than a baby. So it was very convenient to have a carry cot as she looked more snuggle in there! Also you can have this facing you or outwards and makes it easy to transfer them into the pushchair and out without disturbing them. There is also a foot support that adjusts as the baby grows. Suitable from birth.
*Car seat - Again this was great, a car seat that fits straight into the pushchair without disturbing baby. This clips into the pushchair so its extremely safe. Birth to 13kgs. It has a head support cushion and a cosy toe to keep them warm. A hood that again moves up or down to protect from sun or wind. The car seat is secured by an adult seat belt or a graco base.
You also get a matching changing bag which I thought was rather rubbish. It has no poppers or zips to keep everything in the bag. I found that it only carried a small amount of things any more and bag looks overloaded. I always like to take a change of clothes and at least 4 nappies in case there's accidents or just a lot of poohing! I would also take a changing mat/ wet wipes/ toy of some sort and her dummy. I had a separate bag for her feeding. The design was bad so that went straight into the back of the cupboard!
The pushchair folds down even with one hand but is child safe. It has a handle on the side to carry it easy whilst folded. It does fold down flat but still large. In my fiesta it took up the boot and had to go in on its side. In my other cars (bigger boots) it fitted in lying down.
We paid £289.99 at the time (5 years ago) considering how much you get with this system to me is rather reasonable and now its only £230 online at mothercare.
We chose the blue colour which looked like denim and on the inside was white and blue striped design. The material is lovely and soft and very easy to wash and clean. Being a dark blue also meant it never looked grubby. I am sure the colours are different now but I would recommend a dark one so its looks clean. It is very easy to take it all off to wash it. It washes well and then goes back on easy.
I'm sure ours came with a weathershield but if not its a standard travel system one for £9.99.
I did find this pushchair rather big and when we have another baby I would probably go for a different pushchair but definitely a travel system. I just didn't like the fact your baby doesn't face you.
The wheels do ware down a bit considering Maddie was walking at 10 months and wasn't using the pushchair much and didn't use it at all from 18 months.
This pushchair is worth 4 out of 5 because the bag wasn't usable and its only forward facing if crib or car seat is in the pushchair. However I cannot fault the pushchair!
Thank you for reading :-)
Summary: Have a good shop around before you buy a pushchair!
