    Overall absolutely delighted with this pushchair, it’s smart, lovely to push even on rough terrain nice handle as well! The only down falls are the basket underneath isn’t huge and the pram doesn’t fold down that small but it’s manageable. We love it

    Bought this in a closing down sale for £150 it’s not even worth that. It’s a great pushchair to push, its so lightweight and so easy to use on your own, great for small homes too as it’s not bulky, however, the brakes stop working and make for some very embarrassing moments - like when you’ve stopped a bus and the brake won’t come off, the wheels get stuck and then the pushchair won’t move, the handle to be able to spin the pushchair gets stuck and won’t work. I absolutely love the fact you can spin it 360 degrees and this feature has really helped in the sun but I wouldn’t buy it again due to the amount of problems, it’s only 2 months old and started developing issues after 7 weeks of using it.

    Will definitely buy this product again for my second. Very sturdy and lasted me a long time. With buying the extra carseat and attachments for this still works out a very cheap product and great value for money.

    I have this pram for my first born and i adore it!
    I have it in teal colour and its a very nice colour!
    The pram is easy to steer and even putting on the rain over is easy.
    Changing the seat position is easy and fast!

    Great value for money

  • 3.75/5
    • Strengths:

      Swivel between world and parent facing. Cost for newborns

    • Weaknesses:

      Difficult up and down pavements when used in world facing made. Small seat for toddlers.

    • Built to last
    • Easy to fold

    • Value for money
    We felt this pram was excellent value for money given the pram bassinet and seat unit is convertible and it’s often on offer for £200, much cheaper than other brands and I think looks just as stylish!
    The ability to swivel between parent and world facing is really handy, especially when little one falls asleep in world facing. The hood in pram and seat mode provides excellent protection from the elements. The cosy toes is one of the best I’ve used, it’s super snuggly and comfy and unlike others, it’s really easy to undo when you get home without waking a sleeping baby! It’s generally a very good pram for a small baby!

    However, it doesn’t last as long as I would like. By about 10 months old my daughter preferred to be in world facing mode most of the time and when this way around the pushchair feels a lot heavier. It’s difficult to get up and down payments, almost feels like you’re putting far too much pressure on the handlebar, this hasn’t been an issue in pram or parent facing mode. As my daughter got bigger the pushchair just felt so heavy and became quite difficult to steer. The seat itself isn’t very big, great for keeping a baby cosy but not so great for a growing toddler. The basket is quite small compared to the basket on similar prams and over time, the need to remove the seat unit in order to fold the chassis becomes an annoyance.

    Overall I would use the pram again for a baby, with the knowledge that I’ve now got an excellent pushchair I can switch to as baby gets older. However if I was a first time parent again and therefore didn’t have another pushchair, I’d probably look at something with a separate carrycot and seat unit assuming the seat unit will therefore be larger and longer lasting for a toddler.
  • 4.50/5
    • Strengths:

      Very stylish, baby looks comfortable, good that the seat converts to carrycot.

    • Weaknesses:

      Bulky when put in the car, break gets 'sticky' and button to fold is getting difficult to press

    Overall we love this pushchair! It looks very stylish and pushes like a dream. The large wheels and suspension means my little boy gets a lovely smooth ride. Also love that the seat converts into the carrycot which makes storage easier and less bulky. Top tip, we put a moses basket mattress in the carrycot (with a sheet on) for extra comfort. It also meant I could clean the cover easier and regularly. Also I wasn't overly keen that you could see the strap holes.
    There are however a couple slightly negative points which are becoming more noticable the older the pushchair gets. Firstly the foot brake gets sticky, as when you click it down it doesn't pop back up, also the transition between the green and red get stuck between the two, so the brakes click if you try to push it. All it needed is a wiggle, brake reapplied and released again and it's generally ok, but a nuisance if in a hurry. Also I've found the button to collapse the frame is becoming harder to press. It feels like it is stuck. This doesn't affect us very often as we tend to leave the pushchair open when we put it in the car (only folding down the handle). For us personally, with the car we have it's becoming quite bulky to have the seat separate to the pram. We feel like it takes up too much of the car, which is why I generally just use the frame with the carseat.
    Overall we have loved this pushchair as a family, there are so many positive points which outweigh any negative points including: huge sun shade, nice that it comes with the seat liner and footmuff, narrow enough to fit through all doors, handle fold down to make more compact if eating out, good all round suspension, large wheels to cope with different terrain, big easy reach shopping basket, parent and world facing seat which looks very comfortable for my son (he always falls asleep when in his pushchair. We are only having to change pushchair as we need something which is more compact for our car. It has been a great pushchair!

    I have owned this pram when I had my 3rd child. I was lucky to buy it on offer for a half price. I loved the fact that when my little girl was born we only took the frame to the hospital and the car seat as it sits easily on the frame. The pram itself comes with a detachable padding and footmuff. I like the fact that the handle is easy to operate when you want to rotate the pram facing the other way. This is great help when it’s cold and windy and you want your baby facing you or other way. The hood has got little window so when the baby is not facing you then this is useful to keep an eye when they go to sleep etc. You can adjust handle to your height. Big shopping basket. Pram converts from carrycot to pushchair for older child which is fantastic. Wheels are very long lasting.

    I love this! It looks great and is so reasonably priced compared to others simular.
    Easy to steer and I use it daily for busy school runs etc.
    Only downside is that it isn't as smooth as it was when new, its becoming a little stiff to swing round and fold.

    The pushchair is easy to put up wether you have it as a carry cot or use the car seat.
    The only down point to his pram is that it is really fiddly to take the car seat off the pushchair so if you want something quick to collapse you would need to use the carry cot on it as it’s much easier

    Excellent value for money! It’s looks gorgeous! The seat changes from a carrycot to a chair without the need for any additions. Seat can then be faced towards parent or forward facing. The footmuff is by far the best quality that I have ever used it is thick and keeps baby snug and warm and it’s included with the purchase. The only downfall on the Orb is that even when separated and collapsed it still takes up a fair space in the boot of a car. Overall it’s the best pram I’ve had!!
  • 4.38/5

      It's big and strong. Plenty room for a newborn. I love the big hood, and the net was useful at summer

    Maybe I was just unlucky.
    I ordered this as I LOVED that it turned and was so easy to do, spent a long time looking for the pram perfect for me and thought this was it. Delivery was a nightmare and when arrived I even received one that looked like it had been used! So exchange for a new one. After maybe 4/5 months the pram broke and it would collapse (luckily didn’t happen with child was in it) I got another exchange but eventually same issue happed again so ended up getting a full refund! The store at the time also blamed me and said I used use the shopping basket underneath..

    <p>I love this so much! We had it in grey and honestly the best value for money! I was so sad when our boy got too big for it anymore! I love that it rotates so if your out and the suns in the babies eye you can easy rotate in the other direction without having to lift them out the seat! It came with such a lovely cosy toes that was a god send in the winter I still use it now for our new baby in his <a href="https://www.consobaby.co.uk/donkey-2-pushchair-bugaboo.html">bugaboo donkey pram</a>, it’s also so easy to clean aswell! The wheels are also easy to come off when you want to clean your pram!! 100% recommend this.</p>

    Practical for taking in and out of the car but for myself it wasn't the greatest for going on long walks as it can be hard to steer. It's not the comfiest for my wee boy and rather narrow but a good travel buggy to have in the car for short journey's.

    I love this product, I also really like the way the handle folds down makes it very easy to use when out to eat as the handle does not get in the way its also very easy to use and fold away, it was lightweight enough for me to fold away after having a emergency c section, love the cosy toe keeps my LG warm on these cold days, really worth the money as its an all in one ready for next stage when my LG is able to sit up.

    We purchased this in 2016 for our son. We used it on an almost daily basis with him until he went into a buggy at 15 months. We had our second child in 2018 and decided to reuse it as it was still perfect condition. It’s definitely been worth the money.

    The cosy toes is great quality, we didn’t use it much with my first as by the time we needed it he didn’t like his legs being contained but my daughter loves it.
    Stylish, easy to fold and light weight.

Description

 The Mothercare 'Orb Pram' in Liquorice is the complete pram and pushchair system that grows with your baby.

The super one-hand rotation of the Orb pushchair allows parents to simply change the direction your baby faces when on the go. Parent facing mode can help to support the bond between parent and child, as well as creating an enviroment for communication and language development. Forward facing mode allows children to 'look and learn' whilst exploring the world around them. The chassis is made from lightweight but strong aluminium, and has a gunmetal finish that looks sleek and cool for the modern parent.

The chassis folds with one hand into an extra compact structure, suitable for putting in the boot of your car or saving space when storing the pram and pushchair system at home. Lockable front swivel wheels provide ultimate manoeuvrability and the quick release rear wheels make it easy for more room in the boot of the car or to clean up after a muddy walk.

The adjustable height handle is easily adjusted for each parents/carers use and the push on/off brakes are simple to engage with no more scuffed shoes!When paired with a Maxi Cosi CabrioFix or Pebble infant car seat and adaptors (both available separately), the Mothercare Orb Pram and Pushchair can be transformed into a complete travel system.
