    Out of the three prams we have had this is the best one. It was also the cheapest. The swivel base is one of the great things about the buggy, it can be used against a table if there isn’t a high chair available.

    I brought the teal colour and love how it looks, but very chunky in my boot so nothing else fits, can’t wait until my baby can fit in a small stroller. The base is easy to fold and happy the pram section turns into the buggy so I don’t gave to store bits.

      The pushchair is easy to change from parent facing to world facing, you can buy the adapters to put

    We have used this pushchair mainly as the wheels to carry the car seat so far, we've been using it for about 5 months now. Unfortunately, usually when I'm in a rush or I have people waiting for me to get through or people following me the front wheels on the pushchair decide to jam, on several occasions I have nearly gone over the handle. The brakes are a bit sticky so ever so often I just have to put them on and off a couple of times. We bought it for the swivel function and ease of use turning from parent to world facing but I'm not that impressed with it

    Handle bar could do with a lower setting but overall its a great pram love the fact you can turn it front facing or towards you just by using the handle bar and not having too unclip the whole insert, Really easy to push around and i have a red one love how vibrant it is! Overall 8/10

    We got this pram as I loved how you could change it from front facing to rear facing without taking the pram apart - I show off this feature to everyone! The swivel wheels took some getting used to, but it’s great on all terrains and super lightweight! Getting it folded for some reason for us takes a lot of effort for us personally, I think ours gets jammed but it might just take practice we have only done it a few times. All in this system is perfect for our family and all our adventures on buses/trains!
  • 1.13/5
    • Strengths:

      Turning from parent facing to world facing, quick and easy (when it works)

    • Weaknesses:

      Brakes get stuck, handle gets stuck, front wheels sometimes lock, difficult to fold and get seat on!

    Whilst the idea of this pram is amazing, it hasn't been executed very well. All of the mechanisms get stuck or just break! No amount of grease (as advised by mothercare) makes any difference.
    The handle is very temperamental meaning it will only go up to full length after a good 6-8 attempts. The brake gets stuck on, or off so you have to push it down several time to get it to engage/ disengage which can be extremely annoying! The front wheels often stop turning. After about a months use all of the mechanisms start to show wear.
    The main reason I bought the pram was because of the ease of turning it from parent to world facing. After a little use, this is not so easy! It gets locked into place and it's a struggle to move it!
    I'm so disappointed in this pram as when I bought it I thought it would be amazing! Now I wouldn't recommend it even if it were only £50!!

      Swivels round so baby never needs to point downhill

    Overall great pram and with all its features, found it value for money. My daughter hates the motion of going down hills with her head lower than legs so swivel feature great on this pram. The carry cot isn't hard so can fold up and turns into a buggy. This is useful for storage as dosen't take up as much room. Folds up easily but still takes up quite a bit of space in the car. Lack of storage space underneath pram is frustrating and hard to cram bags underneith as not much room. Larger wheels make it possible to push off road, while walking dog in countryside. Overall, mostly been happy with this pram.

    This is my second orb as my first one broke, mothercare was good as they replace the frame, I do use my prams a lot. I decided to get another one for my second child as they are easy to put up and down easy to clean look nice fit in most car boots. No need to store carrycot as this turns into the stroller can put the car seat on to the frame, very good rain cover child can be facing you or looking forward in the stroller and it is so easy to turn them round. Would recommend this pram.

    I am happy with this pram, the ability to change seat direction so easily is great. However I find the basket small and awkward to get too, and I also find that the front wheels often have a mind of their own which can make it awkward steering occasionally.

    I've had this pram about 3 years, got it when I had my first child and still use it now for my second. Love it, still in fantastic condition, the colour is lovely I have it in grey. I used it as a pram up until child was too big then I was able to change it to a pushchair. I'll be sad when he outgrows it as I've loved using this.
    Would reccomend!!

    A pram that is built to last. On 2nd child and not a fault. Love being able to turn it forward or rear facing while child is in it and it's so easy to do. Swizzle half way round too so can pull pram up to tables easily too.

    We bought this pushchair as a package and got a great deal. The pushchair itself is really easy to put together and there are some fab online videos to help if you do get stuck. The pushchair is easy to take apart and put back together when out and about. However, it does take up a lot of boot space. We use this a lot in country tracks and it is really good off road. However, the front two wheels have become stuck in the past and we have had to take it in store for them to fix, which they did with some silicone spray (tip for you!). The buckle to strap little one in is a bit stiff and there is a knack to doing it at first. You have to push in and down which is confusing when you first use it but easy to work out. It's a great pushchair and our little girl is so comfy in it.

    I brought this push chair when I was 30 weeks pregnant. I have brought the maxi cosi adapters for it so I can put the car seat on it when nipping in and out. I’ve had so many compliments whilst pushing this around. I love the grey and rose gold design. It’s great that it goes into a bassinet and then as your baby grows it turns into a seat.

    I needed a pram to fit in my fiat 500, as you can remove the wheels easily this was possible, great pram!!!

    Comfortable to push and good quality only downside is the basket underneath is small however it’s a small pram so can’t gave it all

    I received this as a temp whilst my pram was in for repare and it was horrible, so difficult to steer and manover around corners or onto pavements and i walk alot with my dog.

    The basket is so small and really difficult to get into.
    I would say pay a little more and get something more user friendly

    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.
  • 5.00/5
    • Strengths:

      360 degrees so baby can be forward facing and facing you great for when your baby gets older

    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
    • Easy to steer
    • 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.

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.
