Toys R Us kindly sent us this lovely Silver Cross Ranger Pram to review as part of the toyologist programme. They must have known I would love it, it’s the exact same pram I chose for my daughter as her present from Santa last Christmas! It means I can give you more of a long-term review of this product and can vouch for it’s quality – ours still looks new itself a year later!
I spent a long time choosing this pram at the time, as there were certain features I really wanted and it hasn’t let us down. Here’s what we were after:
1. A lie flat pram my daughter could put her toys to sleep in as that is always a favourite game.
2. One that she could push now (she had just turned 2) but that would also be big enough to last a few years.
3. It had to fold flat! We have no storage space in our house.
4. To look lovely and have a nice design. I just really wanted my daughter’s first pram to feel a bit special!
The silver cross delivers all of these and I felt was great value. The style of it is nice and classic and comes in a great range of patterns. Toys R Us sent us the ‘my little star’ pattern which you can see is really pretty and very girly! This pram is perfect for getting toys off to sleep – it has a pram cover and hood for when they need a little nap!!
It folds down flat very easily and we can fit it neatly under squiggle’s bed when she isn’t using it. The handle bars swizzle up and down so that it can adjust to different heights and grow with your child. My little one has just turned three but is more the height of some four year olds and it’s still a great size for her.
The only slight downside we found was that when she was small she could only push it in a straight line, the wheels don’t swizzle so after hitting a dead end she would wait for me to turn it for her.
The pram has some great roll play features, it comes with a base shelf and it’s own matching nappy bag. My daughter has loved packing the little bag with things she might need, and playing at going shopping and filling the shelf with toy food. I think we still have a lot more fun to come from it too, even my 6/7 year old nieces still love playing babies!
If you are looking for a toy pram this Christmas, this one definitely gets a big thumbs up from us!
