  1. I agree with a lot of your features too. I’m wracking my brains trying to think of one for you! Something like the Britax Bob would be great around the farm but not so much for around town. The iCandy Peach All Terrain maybe, but pricey!

    We have an Uppababy Vista and I think it fits your criteria! It doesn’t fold very small but it does fold in one piece. We live on a farm too and it handles off roading-I think it has silicon filled wheels so doesn’t puncture!

        Yeah definitely check them out. The basket is HUGE, they’re easy to steer one handed and they fold with seat attached. I have no issues with the weight but that might be a personal thing?! I also like that the seat can be rear or forward facing (although it only folds forward facing).

  3. Oh I can’t even tell you how long it took us to choose our pram! We chose a Norton back in 2012 when I had my 1st, it’s an unknown brand but looks identical to the ICandy. It’s a fantastic pram but I’m annoyed I went for an unknown brand (hubby convinced me!) and now they don’t make them anymore, grrrr, it was so expensive too so if we need any spare parts I have no idea what we’re going to do! At least it was in a good condition that I can use it again. I agree with everything you’ve written, especially the light weight part, who wants to tear a muscle trying to lift there pram in the car, haha. Thanks for hosting!

  4. I have the Bugaboo Bee which ticks all of your boxes apart from the basket is really poxy. The pram is brilliant though – so lightweight, compact and fits in the boot of my Nissan Juke which is TINY! It also doesn’t have a separate carry cot but can be laid flat and used from birth which I loved and turns into a stroller for when they’re toddlers. The wheels are really agile and take a lot of bashing too (we regularly go on ‘off-road’ walks). Like I say though the basket is poxy but I guess you have to compromise on something. Hope you find what your’re looking for x

  5. Ahh, the search for the perfect pram/pushchair. I’m sure it does not exist. We’ve reused our Quinny Buzz second time round and it does the job OK, but I would love a shiny new one. We’ve had the same problem with the carry cot – Tin Box Baby is already too big for it at four and a half months. She also doesn’t want to lie flat while she’s awake any more and you’re not meant to use the pushchair seat until 6 months. We have moved her over any way. She’s not in it all day so hopefully my pang of mummy guilt about going against the guidelines won’t matter. Good luck in your search!

  6. I think you list could be my list! I will be re-using my Cosatto one next time around but it is a pain to collapse and I need more storage space! I think when you choose one at the start you have no clue what you need until you have the baby!!! Thanks for hosting lovely xx #maternitymondays

  7. Oh no I feel your pain. I hope you manage to find the perfect pram. We have an iCandy peach 2 and the only thing i would change about it is that it’s bulky (but it’s not too bad). It’s got a big basket, wheels for all terrain, it’s easy to manoeuvre, easy to recline, easy to collapse. But it is a bit wide. We went to several big pram shops and tested probably 100’s till we settled. It’s amazing how differnet they all are isn’t it x #maternitymondays

  8. We desperately need a new one, but with a 2nd on the way are debating whether to get a double or not. I’m sorry I don’t have any ideas that fit your criteria…oh and I’ve never heard of a pram reclining with string before! I can’t imagine, lol!

  9. I would have loved a new pram for Little 3 but it was not to be due to finances but I still like our graco one we have had 6 years now and it is still going strong. We have a silver cross pop buggy for when he is older. I hope you find one to suit you. #maternitymondays

  10. Lol pram porn! What have our lives come to that we list after prams on a Saturday night?! I have the icandy peach 3 and I love it but it is quite cumbersome to collapse. Hope you find something suitable Hun. Loving the pics on this post! Xxx
