When shopping for a pram we had a list of things that were important to us. These were it had to be rear and forward facing, be able to add a second seat, have four wheels, and be able to use a capsule with it. There were a few prams that fitted our needs but after taking into account price, looks, basket size and ease of steering we decided on the Strider Plus 4 and couldn't be happier.
We got the Infant Carrier that clips straight into the pram, which has made those first trips out of the house so easy. It is great not to have to wake a sleeping baby if we're getting in and out of the car. You can also get a bassinet to go with the pram that I would have loved but decided the infant carrier was the more pratical option for us.
The pram is easy and comfortable to push with the adjustable handle. I like that you can lock the front wheels and that you don't have to worry about getting a puncture, and not only do we love to push the pram more importantly our baby loves riding in it.
It comes with a rain cover and a sun cover, we've only used the rain cover so far but it works well and packs back up into its bag for easy storage. The main seat can take up to 20kg and the second seat up to 15kgs so it should last us a very long time.
It is a large pram and quite heavy and we will probaby get a smaller stroller down the track as well for certain outings, but it is great for walking, feels sturdy and safe, and will be so useful if/when number 2 comes along being able to add the second seat. The brake also took a bit of getting used to, you need to make sure it is fully off before you start walking or it flips back into place.
When I found out I was pregnant with my 2nd baby when my daughter was 8 weeks old we we on a hunt for a pram that could be used for both of the children comfortably.
PROS: I really liked the look of it, the colours it came in, it came with a sun shade, rain cover & a drink holder and the 2nd seat could come off because I knew my eldest would want to be indepenat and walk very early on, and the price was great for a twin pram.
CONS: Everything else! The pram doesn't fold easily and needs 2 hands to collapse, so very hard when needing to cactch buses. Very wide, need to use wheelchair checkouts at the supermarts, The seats are very short, my daughter is only 14 months and her legs hang over the foot rest and her head is touching the top (luckily she likes walking) The bottom seat is difficult to get a newborn in and out of. Very bulky to manuverour, with the second seat on its almost impossible to get it over anything that doesn't have a ramp, takes up ALL of the room in our stationwagon. Has a huge basket but unfortunately its hard to get to once the second seat is attached and the drink holder has nowhere to go once the2nd seat is on. and the baby on the bottom seat can't see anything but the back of the top seat
If I had my time over I would not have got this pram and would have done more research before buying it.
