Silver cross Pop Unboxing and Review

Hurray today I have something a little different for you! Jacob is fifteen months, so i thought now would be a good time to think about changing him over from a travel system  to something a bit more lightweight; and with Frankie starting Nursery school in September i thought the both could go hand in hand.

Below I’ve listed a few of the main features the pop has to offer:

  • Suitable From Birth with a lie flat recline
  • Max Weight of 25kg which should facilitate you right up until your child is in school
  • One hand Fold ( do need two for opening though)
  • Carry handle
  • Compact Umbrella Fold
  • Full five point safety harness to keep baby safe
  • Extendable Hood with Mesh vented system
  • Roomy seats and Tall backs with good amount of padding to seat
  • Adjustable footrest
  • Ergonomic foam handles
  • Unfolded Dimensions: D80xW49xH107cm
  • Folded Dimensions: H105xW28xD27cm
  • Stroller weight: 8.3kg

To get this Buggy assembled and up and out the door really does only take a few minutes, You Clip the wheels on and attach the hood and your ready to go, so if your like me and always rushing off then it will be ‘perfect’ from the moment it arrives at your door.

TAHDAH !!!

Now some of you may be wondering Why i picked this pram?

Since having Frankie i have had numerous amounts of Pushchairs and buggies. Between baby bags and Pushchairs i think its safe to say I’ve found my niche. What made me decide on the Silvercross Pop was the Maximum weight capacity. At 25kg ( 55pounds) i know whole heartedly that this will last Jacob well into Four years plus. As Jacob has Arthrogroposis multiplex Congenita i am aware that he probably won’t walk for a while longer yet and when he does master walking he will most probably tire easily so it was essential i had a buggy that could take me through the years. Below i have pictured my tall 3 year old in the silvercross pop and Jacob to show how versitile it really can be.

Where did i buy this Pram?

I purchased my silver cross pop from Boots.co.uk as it was currently on offer for a discounted price of £120. Another factor that steered me towards buying from boots were the Advantage card points i would gain by purchasing  and i did have a bonus £8  of added points code so i really am saving money in the long run.

Whats included?

If you choose to buy the pushchair from boots i am pretty certain what comes in the box is as standard however if this is the selling point for you make sure you double-check with your retailer. So in the box i had the silver cross pop buggy, the detachable hood,rain cover and an instruction manual.

Optional Extras?

This pushchair/buggy is not carrycot compatible so no added seats are available to purchase, another thing to mention is Personally i would have liked the option to purchase a bumper bar however this is currently not available for this specific pushchair. There are on the other hand plenty of added extras you can buy for this pushchair such as a  colour coordinating footmuff, parasol,cup holder, coordinating changing bag, buggy sail and matching fleece blanket so i will leave the link to all those extras here

Overall Impression?

So far so good, The Silvercross Pop really is lightweight and nimble to push and is super fast to get up and out of the boot when I’m on my own with both boys, i see it lasting us for the next few years to come ( thats hoping i don’t get bored and change again.. whoops.)  I am  missing the luxury of a large shopping basket that you tend to get with bigger pushchairs and i find the hood a bit noisy with a sleeping baby,  though be that as it may the pros defiantly outweigh the few minor niggles i have.

I hope this post has been useful and answered some questions you may have on the silver cross pop, leave me a comment in the section below on what you thought of this pushchair.

Thanks for reading,
