Pram Reviews

Best Travel Prams Australia 2020

Arguably any pram or stroller could be a travel pram. There’s no rules to say that you can’t take a big pram with you when you travel. In fact, I’d say there’s some arguments for the idea of taking your full sized everyday pram with you when you travel. Sure, you’ll have to check it into luggage, so you won’t have it with you when you’re actually in the airport, but the pay off at the other end is having a decent pram at the other end.

Best Pram for Camping and Outdoors

best pram for camping

An interesting question that comes up from time to time is what is the best pram for camping? Most people aren’t looking for a pram that’s exclusively for camping, so a “great camping pram” also has to be useful in your everyday life as well. Which is a tricky request when camping presents a number of challenges.

GB Pockit vs the GB Pockit+ 2018 – Most Comprehensive Comparison

I have to admit I was SUPER excited about the GB Pockit+ coming out. It actually came out in other parts of the world last year, and took what felt like forever to arrive in Australia. I even kept emailing the Australian distributor for Good Baby (GB) pestering them to tell me when it would get here. So frustrating. I don’t do delayed gratification well.

Best Double Prams 2018

Here we go. Another year, another round up the Best Double Prams for 2018 in Australia. So this year you’ll notice most of the prams listed convert from a single to a double – or from a double to a single, depending on how you look at it. This hybrid “future proof” style of pram has continued to be incredibly popular and more and more brands are getting on board with this style of pram. I’ve also included a couple of dedicated double prams in the list as well.

So let’s do this thing!

Baby Jogger City Mini GT Review

The Baby Jogger City Mini GT is the pram that I recommend more than any other pram. (Or the Baby Jogger City Mini! Either pram is awesome. And I’ll talk a little bit about the difference between them further down the page.) It just seems to tick SO MANY BOXES for people. And it is one of the most popular prams going around. (Start looking for them when you go out and you’ll see them everywhere.) 

Britax Holiday Pram Review With Video Review

I recently featured the Britax Holiday in my Best Travel Prams list for 2018. It’s a very sweet, simple, light weight, compact, easy to use little pram that is absolutely perfect for travel.  It weighs a tiny 4.9kgs. Also it’s only 43cms wide, so it’s a very petite pram. Great for zipping around busy airports, or just cruising around through narrow aisles at the shops.

ICandy Raspberry Pram Review (With Video Review)

The ICandy Raspberry has my favourite combination of features! The seat lays completely flat to be suitable for newborns, it has a massive weight capacity of 25kgs AND folds with the seat attached facing in EITHER DIRECTION. Love it. It also has a lot of other features I look for in a pram, like a one handed recline, telescopic handle bar, proportionally big basket (for such a lightweight pram).

Uppababy Vista Review (Video Review)

Quick story before I dive into the review. A couple of years ago I spotted an Uppababy Vista off in the distance at a winery. It was set up as a double with two upright seats, with the “piggyback” toddler board attached as well. (Though it was folded up out of the way. So they weren’t using it at the time). So they had two tots in the pram and one older child trotting along beside.

Best Travel Prams 2018 – Best Compact Prams

With the school holidays fast approaching now is a good time to think about what is the best travel pram for you to take on your next trip! What makes a pram the best travel pram? We’re looking for something that is light, compact, narrow, easy to fold, ideally something that can come right to the boarding gate at the airport, and better even if it fits in the overhead storage on the plane so you don’t have check your pram in as luggage. 

5 Big Mistakes People Make When Choosing A Pram (And how to get the right pram for you)

Mistakes People Make Buying A Pram! Firstly, by “people” I mean me. Some of these are mistakes that I have made personally – which is how I ended up owning 11 different prams between just two babies. Yep. There were some very expensive mistakes in there. So please, learn from …

We Have Found The Best Double Prams 2017

best double prams 2017

Side by side prams are usually wider, but generally offer better steering and have bigger baskets. On the other hand it’s a lot harder to find a side by side double pram that has parent facing seats (without needing to by a carry cot/bassinet separately). On that note I’ll give an honorary mention to the Bugaboo Donkey which is featured on the last Best Double Prams list – because it does offer parent facing toddler seats.

Baby Monsters Fresh Pram Review (Video Review)

A couple of weeks ago I wandered into Baby Train to have a little look at prams (as I do) and I came across the Baby Monsters Fresh 2.0. I’d never heard of the brand before, so I just had to ask about it!

Baby Monsters is a Spanish brand and it has only been available in Australia for the last couple months. They’re currently only sold at Baby Train.

Top Ten Cheap Prams

cheap prams

Prams can vary in price from $25 to $2,500 and beyond. But cheap prams aren’t necessarily bad prams! You might not be able to get all the of the features you one in one pram, but if you priorities what is most important to you then I’m sure there’s something in this list to suit everyone.

What Makes A Good Pram

I’m a bit of a pram enthusiast, so I often get asked to recommend a “good” pram, or even just what makes a good pram? There is no single answer to that, however there are some key features to look for and questions to ask when looking for a great pram that’ll suit your needs.

Babybee Prams Comet Product Review

Babybee Prams Review

The first few pros are about the Babybee Prams is that they’re a new, Australian owned, Melbourne based, business. They have a very interactive Facebook page. They have a life time warranty that guarantees the pram for as long as you need it, whether you have 3 children or 13, and they offer a 9 month free returns, so you can buy the pram, have a good look at it and if you change your mind they will arrange a courier at their expense and refund you the cost of the pram.

Rozibaby Pram Review

I’ve had the opportunity to borrow a Rozibaby pram to test out and review.
First impressions with this pram are it is a very attractive pram, I love the look of it. They have a fun and funky colour range, especially when every fabric component is selected separately, so there’s no reason you can’t have a blue, orange and green pram and with the interactive Pram Builder, you can customise your colour choices to suit your own taste – and if that’s not enough for you to choose your colours you can order a colour swatch before you make that decision – and if THAT’S not enough, you can buy the fabric components separately…

Confessions of a Pram Addict

“Hi, My name is Rachel and I am a pram addict.”

I have another confession to make, I’ve bought two prams since this article was originally written in April 2013! Whoops! I have good reasons… excuses… mostly boredom, opportunity, poor impulse control and my partner is a terrible enabler. I look to him to say “no” and he says “why not”.

So, I thought I’d update this confession with my newest purchases and take you through the journey of how one thing led to another and I wound up buying my 11th pram.
