Choosing a new pushchair can be somewhat of a minefield for new parents, as there are so many different styles to choose from. When deciding what type of pushchair to buy, it is best to think about what the primary use for the pushchair will be, for example, city shopping, country walks or the school run.
One current popular style of pushchair is the Babystyle Oyster. The Oyster features stunning looks and is extremely user friendly. It is neat and compact and contains a number of key features, such as a fully reclineable and reversible independent seat unit, a large easy access shopping basket, fitted apron and rain cover, plus many other useful extras. The chassis allows most leading top brand car seats to click easily into place, which is an invaluable feature for new parents.
Like many other top pushchair styles, the Babystyle Oyster comes with a Colour Pack which features a wide variety of funky colours to suit all tastes, such as Hot Pink and Tomato. Colour coordinated footmuffs and summer liners along with a changing bag and changing mat are also available.
Another desirable pushchair currently on the market is the Quinny Buzz. A key feature of the Quinny Buzz is its unique hydraulic spring technology which allows the pushchair to be easily folded with one hand. This is extremely useful when trying to quickly load shopping and a pushchair into the boot of the car, particularly when it is pouring with rain! The model can also be combined with a Quinny Carrycot which is an ideal method of travel for a newborn. An older baby can be seated in a compatible car seat for ease of use, whilst an older child can utilise the main seat of the pushchair up to 15kg.
If the child is to spend a lot of time in the pushchair, comfort should be the main feature. It is also important to remember that if the pushchair is to be taken in and out of the car frequently, ensure the pushchair is easy to fold and can also fit in the boot of the car!
