Choosing the right pram is just like purchasing the right car for you and your family.
It needs to:
- suit your lifestyle
- be comfortable to navigate
- be the perfect size
Style is also an important factor as it is an item purchased for long term use. The choice can be overwhelming as the market is flooded with so many different brands wanting a piece of the multi million dollar industry. One of the first choices to make is whether you want a three or four wheeler pram. Once this choice is made, it can be a lot easier to look at other key features that will help you make the right choice.
3 Wheeler Prams
Three wheeler prams have grown in popularity, especially for mums and dads who like to exercise with their baby. They are usually easier to manoeuvre, however they can easily tip while turning corners and roll away as they are quite light in weight. Three wheelers can be quite bulky, but with the popularity of this style of pram growing, designers continue to search for ways to make it compact.
Steelcraft have created a great range of three wheeler prams that have been popular with new parents. With an endless list of features, they are a great item to invest in if you are opting for a jogger. With many different styles in their range, each will have diverse features depending on certain factors including age of your child, climate you live in and the lifestyle you live. Many other three-wheeler strollers will have similar characteristics and your choice may come down to cost.
4 Wheeler Prams
There is no underestimating the popularity of the four-wheeler pram. Known for its stability, you will have no problem when it comes to uneven surfaces. Compared to the three-wheeler, this pram can be much heavier and harder to steer in tight spaces.
There are many popular brands in the four-wheel range, but one that has become extremely popular in the last several years is the Silver Cross. This stylish pram has been made popular thanks to the Duchess of Cambridge sporting the designer pram for the youngest royal Princess Charlotte. Silver Cross prams come in a variety of shapes and styles from modern to elegant, catering for a range of mums and dads depending on their style.
A pram can be a personal preference due to one’s taste and style, but it is important you put your child’s safety first. Always ask about the safety features and ensure that it is up to the national standards. Also, take into consideration the size, and whether it will fit in your car boot.
Depending on your lifestyle and what you want in a pram will determine whether a three or four wheeler is best for you and your child. Take the time to consider your choices, as it will be a long-term investment. Make your decision wisely and do not be afraid to ask for advice from friends, family and baby pram professionals as they too may help make your decision easier.
