Dolls Pram Feature Checklist 

When choosing a doll’s pram you want to make sure it has all the right features to encourage imaginative play and so you know that your child will enjoy playing with it for years to come. If you’re unsure what you should be looking for, our dolls pram feature checklist will help.


Why Are The Features On A Dolls Pram So Important? 

Any parent or carer who’s been pram or pushchair shopping will know that not all prams are created equal! The same applies to dolls prams too. 

Of course, even a very basic pram will work if all you need to do is transport your baby doll from A to B, but the better the features on the doll’s pram, the greater the possibilities for your child to engage in role play, which has a whole host of benefits for their learning and development. 

If a doll’s pram has plenty of great features, your child is more likely to keep returning to the pram to play with it again and again. Plus, certain features can make your life easier too, for example, collapsible prams that don’t take up a lot of space in your home or car. 

So, what are the essential features you should be looking for on a doll’s pram?

Doll’s Pram Feature Checklist 

Here are some of the must-haves you’ll want to check for when choosing a dolls pram. 

How easy is it to assemble? 

First, you’ll want to know how easy it is to put together If it’s going to be time consuming or require special tools, then your little one might not have the patience to wait while you assemble it! Knowing this in advance can help you decide whether or not you should pre-build the pram, especially if it’s a present for a birthday or Christmas. 

Is it foldable? 

Folding dolls prams are a great way to save space in your home or car but they’re also an important feature for your child. A pram that can be easily folded up or down using a simple, safe mechanism gives your child independence when playing with their dolls pram, which is great for boosting confidence and self-esteem. 

The size, height & weight 

It’s crucial that any pram you choose is the correct height and weight for your child. A pram that’s too big or heavy to push is no fun and likewise, older children won’t want to stoop over to push a pram that looks much too small or young for them. 

You’ll also want to consider the size of their doll(s) too and make sure that the pram you pick will fit them nicely. 

Comfortable handles 

A doll’s pram needs to be comfortable to push. Soft, comfy handles that are easy to grip for small hands are essential. 

A shopping basket 

A shopping basket is often seen as a bonus feature when it comes to dolls prams, but there are so many great reasons why a shopping basket makes it onto our essential features list. 

For one, kids love to be just like mum and have their very own shopping basket or bag underneath their dolls pram. Plus it’s handy for storing all those extra accessories they might want to bring along for their doll, like a blanket, toy or change of clothes. It can also be handy for transporting your little one’s own belongings if they don’t want to carry them, for example, you can put their coat or bag in there on the way back from nursery or to the park.

Additional Dolls Pram Features 

Now that we’ve covered the essentials in our dolls pram feature checklist, what about those added extras that can really give a dolls pram that wow factor and open up even more opportunities for play? 

Here are some additional dolls pram features that your child is sure to love. 

Swivel wheels 

Swivel wheels can make your doll’s pram easier to push and feel more realistic, which adds to your child’s enjoyment. 

A reclining seat 

Some dolls prams, such as the Daisy Chain Zipp Zenith, have a reclining seat allowing your child to lay their baby doll flat to sleep. 

Viewing window 

Many of our dolls prams and pushchairs feature mesh viewing windows in the hood so that your child can keep an eye on their doll, the way any parent or carer would watch over their baby. 

Twin prams 

A twin pram can be double the fun! Our twin dolls pushchairs and double dolls prams allow your child to take two dolls out at once. 

Travel systems 

Children love to feel grown-up so realistic dolls travel systems with removable carry cots that can be converted from a pram to a pushchair will make them feel just like mum! 

Matching accessories 

Another fantastic feature to look out for when choosing a dolls pram is whether there are matching accessories available. 

Compatible accessories in coordinating colours or patterns, such as changing bags, cosy toes and parasols can make play even more fun, and also make great gifts. Look out for other accessories such as rain covers, carry cot mattresses, high chairs and even car seats too!
