Silver Cross 3D
Advantages: Has three types of travel mode, folds down easy and compact
Disadvantages: Brake can unclick itself, workmanship not fantastic
We were bought our Silver Cross 3D pram as a present from my Mum and Dad on the birth of our daughter in January. The pram comes delivered in a big box which contains all of the vital parts for you to built your pram!
The pram is from birth to four years old and so essentially you get three different travel modes in this one pram. The first mode is the traditional pram for the newborn baby. Our baby was born in January and there was lots of snow and ice on the ground. The pram was sturdy and easy (well as easy as a pram can be) to push in these conditions. The second mode is what I call the half buggy! This is where you remove the mose/ pram section from the main base. This reveals the main chair with an adjustable back. We moved our little girl into this at four months old. She was beginning to sit up alone and was far too nosy to enjoy being laid down when out and about! The cosy toes is still attached to the buggy by the straps and so it is snug for baby in here. It also provides padding for the baby here as they are still quite small. Lastly the third mode of transport is where the cosy toes and head rest come out of the buggy. The Buggy can still be adjusted using the leaver at the back to the seat, so that baby can nap whilst out. However the buggy is now much less padded and suitable for the older child.
The pram has a removeable hood, a shopping basket underneath and a raincover. It also comes with a matching changing bag. The wheels are double wheels and the front pair are lockable. This enables you to push through rougher terain much easier. When you are pushing on smoother terain you can unlock the wheels for much easier manourability. There is a main brake on the back which clicks into position.
The buggy is a good all-rounder. There are many benefits to this buggy. However we had higher expectations of it as it is a Silver Cross. Firstly, when on a hill the buggy can unclick its own brake! In other words, beware baby may start rolling away = not good! Secondly the main cover of the pram has a piece of plastic in the front to maintain the shape. This has come out of ours, as it has pushed its way out. It is also quite heavy to lift with baby in.
The buggy does fold up and fold out very easily, and therefore is easy to store. It fits into the back of even a Peugot 106 and so is quite compact! If I was choosing a buggy again I think I would go with a Quinney.
Summary: I would probably buy a quinney
