If you’re looking to buy a dolls pram for your child, one of the first things you are going to ask yourself is ‘how much do dolls prams cost?’, alongside other questions about which dolls pram is the most suitable for your child.
Budget is an important factor when it comes to buying a dolls pram, keep reading for our assessment of dolls pram prices, and why Play Like Mum prams are priced as they are.
The Cost Of Dolls Pram In The UK
A simple search online for ‘dolls prams prices’ will quickly show you that dolls prams range in price from £20 to £200, are sold by all types of retailers, and come in a multitude of designs.
This can be confusing to buyers who may be wondering why dolls prams vary in price so much. It’s difficult to give an average dolls pram cost, because, as you may have noticed, not all dolls prams are equal. There is so much variation in design, and most importantly, quality, that there is a doll pram to meet every budget.
Parents looking to buy a pram for a real baby will also have the same dilemma when it comes to choosing a pram.
How Much Should You Spend On A Dolls Pram?
Firstly, there is no set amount you should spend on a dolls pram! This will depend on your family and budget.
But, as with most products, how much you spend will generally be reflected in the quality. Dolls prams that are on the ‘cheaper’ side will be very simple and not have many of the same features of a mid-price, or luxury dolls pram.
It is, however, important to note that cost will not influence your child’s enjoyment – even budget prams are designed to encourage children to use their imagination and take part in creative role play.
Most children don’t notice how much toys cost and will play with cheaper, and more expensive toys equally. However, if you want to spend a little more on a dolls pram, there are several benefits…
The Cost Of Quality Dolls Prams
Spending a little more on a dolls pram means you are going to get a better-quality toy in most cases.
More expensive dolls prams are likely to:
• Be made from superior materials
• Be more aesthetically pleasing
• Be manufactured more sustainably
• Be less easy to damage or break
A high-quality dolls pram will be built to last your child several years and can even be passed on to younger siblings or friends. A lower-cost dolls pram may provide a child with short-term enjoyment, but a quality dolls pram will last your child years and withstand even rough play. Because let’s be honest, a dolls pram is likely going to face quite a few bumps and toppling overs!
Features Of Dolls Prams Based On Cost
One of the biggest reasons to buy a mid-range or luxury dolls pram is the features that often come with spending a little more money. Whilst even the most basic of dolls prams will do what dolls prams are designed to do – push a doll or teddy along, a pram with more features offers more opportunity for imaginative play.
Additional features to look out for are:
• A seat that can be moved to different positions
• A hood, or a hood that can be opened/closed
• Adjustable handle/handles
• The addition of a shopping basket
• A pram that has more than one configuration
• A pram that has multiple seats
• Dolls prams that are designed with a coordinating set of accessories
Play Like Mum Dolls Pram Prices
You may notice that our dolls prams range in price from £29.99 to £149.99 – the more affordable pushchair option is ideal for younger children, as at this age, a child isn’t likely to be able to configure a pram into different positions. The age ranges this pushchair is suitable for, 1 to 3 years old, will simply push the pushchair along.
Our pram prices go up, according to the features they have. For example, our most expensive pram, the Daisy Chain Pinnacle Double Dolls Pram, features two cots so your child can push around multiple dolls. The Pinnacle can also be configured in many different ways, providing your child with hours of fun and the ability to change the pram when they like.
At Play Like Mum, we are extremely proud that even our most cost-effective, budget-friendly pushchairs are still superior quality to other pushchairs available on the market. Our Little Zipp Dolls Pushchair is competitively priced, yet still has quality features such as an embroidered detail, comfortable padded handles, and an adjustable hood.
Our more luxurious models, like the Daisy Chain Destiny Travel System has many high-quality features such as contrasting rose gold details, adjustable handle, changeable positions, and a fancy quilted fabric!
We love that we have an exciting range of quality dolls prams to offer parents at a range of prices, so that no matter what your budget is, you can find the right toy for your child.
In summary, the cost of a dolls pram comes down to how much your family wants to spend, what features your child would appreciate in a toy, and how long you want the pram to last for.
