    I really wanted the I candy but found it very difficult to fold plus wouldn't fit in the boot of my very small car! So in the end the choice was taken out of my hands. It is very cute though.

    Pros
    Forward and rear facing seat
    Can have a second seat
    Can also have a skateboard attached (I often had my three all on the pram, very handy)
    Easy to steer
    Huge basket underneath
    Huge sun canopy
    Spy window in canopy
    Belly bar can attach
    Easy fold

    Cons
    Take up room when folded
    Can be expensive (I bought online and saved hundreds though)

    I have an icandy peach and I love it (so does DH)

    We had the icandy apple and decided to upgrade to peach rather than convert to pear (apple converts to a double and becomes the pear).

    We bought ours directly from the Australian supplier at the Baby Expo so saved about $550 then paid $60 for postage.

    PROS:
    Easy to fold
    Steers very well and effortlessly
    Easy to use as single or double
    Hasn't ever tipped when only back seat is in use (because DD likes to walk sometimes so I still have it as a double but only DS in the pram)
    Seating can be rf (single only) or ff or both in
    Compact and fits everywhere without being too long or bulky
    DD can fit in the back seat easily (granted she is very small though)
    Easy to clean
    Fits well in boot (hatch) especially without the carry cot
    Can stand alone when folded
    Looks good and *always* gets great comments about it
    Light weight but doesn't feel flimsy
    3 recline seat levels on both seats and foot rests
    Both children appear happy in there

    CONS:
    When using the carry cot as the second seat I couldn't fit the nappy bag on the handle (but can put nappy bag on handle now I'm using both seats)
    Small-ish/hard to get basket (even more annoying when said nappy bag was squished in there)
    The handle seems to get dents much easier than the apple (it's a different material)

    Otherwise as I said I love it!

    Oh and based on the icandy apple, good re-sale value...
