Which Silver Cross Dolls’ Pram Or Pushchair Is Right For You?

Whether it’s their first day at big school, just the start of another year, or even gearing up for those all-important exams, kids of all ages will be heading back to school soon, which means it’s time for the annual restock.

Types of Dolls’ Prams

First things first, we’re going to look at the three main types of doll’s pram which are available, all of which have their own characteristics:

Pushchair

A classic stroller-style pram is one that you’re most likely to see a toddler in and usually has ample storage space down below too. They’re usually fairly lightweight and easy to push around and can be collapsed down for easy storage and transportation. We offer 2 options; for ages 18 months to 3 years the Pop Pushchair; for ages 4 – 8 years the Pop Max Pushchair

We have also developed a lovely accessory set perfectly matching these pushchairs, The Silver Cross Pop Accessory Pack can be bought separately, which includes a clear pvc all-over raincover, a shoulder bag and a sweet little cosytoe for the pushchair seat

Combination Pram / Pushchair

A doll’s pram / pushchair combination is modelled on those used for young babies (who need to lie flat) but also for toddlers. The best dolls pram / pushchair combinations, are also compatible with a car seat. These dolls prams are very flexible with multiple combinations for reclining seats, forward and rear facing as well as many additional accessories to attach.

We offer 2 options; for ages 3-8 years the Pioneer 5 in 1 Dolls Pram; for ages 5-9 years the Sleepover Travel System Dolls Pram. In addition to these dolls prams we have made the custom Silver Cross Ultimate Accessory Pack.

This can be bought separately that matches this pram. The set includes a sun parasol, with universal clip attachment, a clear pvc all-over raincover, a shoulder bag and a little cot mattress for the carrycot.

Twin Pushchair or Pram

If your little one has more than one doll or teddy to look after, then they’re sure to want a twin pushchair, whether this seats two dolls side by side or one behind the other. We offer 3 options for most ages – 18months to 3 years Pop Twin pushchair; 4years to 8 years Pop Twin Max pushchair; For ages 7 -13 years Wave Double Dolls pram.

…and as I’m sure you have guessed, we have created accessory sets perfectly designed to complement these products. The Silver Cross Pop Twin accessory pack, can be bought separately to match this pushchair. The set includes a clear all-over raincover, a shoulder bag and a single cosytoe to allow your doll to mix n match

For our newest product, the large Wave double pram, The Silver Cross Wave accessory pack can be bought separately too. The set includes 2 clear pvc all-over raincovers, a shoulder bag, a little cot mattress for the carrycot and a footmuff for the pushchair seat

How Old Is Your Child?

Doll’s prams come in all shapes and sizes and to ensure that your child has one which they can comfortably and easily push around, it’s important to make sure that you get the height right, specifically the handle height.

The handles need to be at a comfortable height, so that your child isn’t reaching up on their tiptoes, but equally that they aren’t stooping down either.

A great feature of some doll’s prams, such as our Pioneer and Sleepover models is that they have adjustable handles, from 44 to 85cm and 54 to 87cm respectively, meaning that your little one can keep playing with them as they grow up.

We know that one of the biggest frustrations for parents, is finding a dolls pram that is truly big enough for a taller older child. We developed the Wave double dolls pram, specifically for children from 7 years old to 13 years with a huge 95cms maximum handle height.

What Size Is Their Doll?

It’s not just the size of your child that you’ll have to take into account, but also how big their doll is.

For example, much younger children might start out with a small doll or teddy of only a few inches, in which case you’ll only need a toy pram.

However, as they get older and have more lifelike dolls which represent real babies, they’ll inevitably need a pram which is more realistic too.

Generally speaking, if your child’s doll is about 12 inches or more in length, you’ll want a proper replica doll’s pram.

What Is Your Budget?

Doll’s prams are available at a wide range of price points, from basic to luxury. How much you want to spend will vary from family to family and how much use you think your child will get from the pram.

One thing we will say though is that we make all of our doll’s prams so that they are long-lasting and timeless gifts, which your child will hopefully enjoy playing with for many years to come. The materials and build quality of our Silver Cross dolls prams, are of a higher quality compared to other high street dolls prams.

Was Your Child Pushed In A Silver Cross Pram Themselves?

Silver Cross prams are among the most popular in the UK, even being a favourite of the royal family themselves.

So if you chose a Silver Cross pram to push your little one in while they were younger, how about buying them an exact replica so that they can push their dolls just like mum and dad used to push them?

Dolls prams are not disposable toys, these are wonderful products made from high quality materials lovingly designed to allow your child to develop imaginative ways to play and to copy what they see in their family.

Features

Not all doll’s prams are equal and there are some features which some products may be lacking. Here are some things to look out for:

Wheels

While some prams will have fixed wheels at both the front and the back, you’ll probably want swivel wheels at the front as this makes the pram a lot easier to manoeuvre, especially on rough terrain, which is extra important when it’s being pushed by a little person.

Brakes

Some doll’s prams which are more realistic will have brakes on the wheels, which is important to make sure that your little one’s dolls don’t roll away!

Safety Belt

We don’t want our teddies and dolls flying out of the pram, so many doll’s prams will include a safety belt to keep them safe. For some, this might just be an aesthetic feature but if you’ve treated your youngster to a more expensive doll, you’ll probably want to make sure it stays safe!

Storage

Most doll’s prams, especially stroller style ones will have storage space or a basket underneath the pram itself so that children can put all their toys underneath and push those around too.
