    We bought the 10 piece bundle of this prank so we had everything we needed, I wanted a good sturdy pram that would be ideal for long walks in park areas, this has big wheels and is very sturdy! Its so nice to push, the basket is a decent size for when out shopping and swapping between car seat and carrycot is so simple. I love this pram, its well worth the money, I got the navy color and it looks so stylish, my only negative would be that the extra sun shade bit that pulls down could come down more like other brands.

    I couldn't have asked for a better pram for my first baby. It's tough enough for us to go country walks, but smooth and nible enough for us to go about the shops with ease. Weve taken this pram nearly everywhere weve been and I couldn't reccomend it enough. It looks as good as new, even though it has been put though alot! It is so easy to change from the carrycot, to the car seat and the pushchair options.

    Always knew Silver Cross prams were one of the best brands if not the best brand when it comes to pushchairs so always knew I’d get one when I had a baby. The pioneer model I chose collapses super easy, find it light and easy to push (unless you have a basketful of shopping, but then of course it’s going to be more heavier). Love the leather handle and the fact you can buy a padded liner and also a thermal liner for it. The hood could do with being able to come over bit more so shades baby more when in carry cot and next stage pram when on lowest level. Apart from that it is brilliant!!

    We got this pram for our first child, we loved how luxurious it felt and the fact it would last us through every stage of our young persons life. The pram was fantastic, lots of great features, especially the big sturdy wheels and huge basket underneath. It was bulky when folded however, which meant we had to remove a wheel to get it in the car, this wasn’t a problem as it was so easy to do. We had to replace this pram however, as we needed a double when our oldest was around 15 months. Would and have recommended this to many new parents

    We bought this pram as a travel set so it came with the car seat etc. Brilliant pushchair. Really quick and easy to fold away and put in the car. Also very lightweight compared to other prams. Large basket at the bottom for all your bits! Really good turning system so you can navigate through small shops or turn around in tight spaces!

    I love how sturdy the wheels are and how smooth the pram is on all surfaces. I also loves how luxurious it looks and the variety of different color packs available. All the attachments such as the seat unit, the carry it, and car seat are easy to attach. The cup holder is a bonus for a drink on the move. The basket is a personal favorite of mine it's so big you can fit all your shopping in and more. The pram is very easy to hand or machine wash and attaches from the base easily. The handle adjusts to 3 different heights which helps cater for you, your partners and anyone else's hight. I like how the seat can be parent facing or world facing. I really like that the rain cover unzips so you can have access to baby whilst it's raining without them getting wet. The pram is clearly made to last and couple last for two children or more if looked after The cons are that when the pram is folded it doesn't fit in to a small car boot

    Loving this pram so far - baby is comfy. It looks stylish - I’ve received lots of compliments. It is bulky and takes up the entire boot of my car. Also the basket is inaccessible while using the silver cross as the pram... I’m sure it’s better when you use it as a pushchair. Other than that we’re really enjoying it

    I've used this from newborn for over 19 months. It's a great pushchair, smooth & has a large shopping basket. It's quite large even when folded down and might not fit in smaller cards. The base with the carrycot is too large to fit in most car boots.

    I bought this pram for my daughter before she was born so I used the frame with the car seat and the carry cot from birth and I can honestly say it is an amazing pram. I absolutely love it! The car seat is light so clipping it onto the frame is so easy and releasing it is just two buttons. The frame is very sturdy and the carry cot is so comfy for my little one, as soon as she laid in it she would fall asleep. It is easy to remove the hood from the carry cot and put it onto the seat. The pram is easy to clean and so is the base. The wheels can either be locked straight or can swivel. It’s not the smallest when folded and needs to be taken apart to be folded but it’s easy enough to take the carry cot or seat off. The basket at the bottom is big which is very handy and the pram can hold a great deal of weight as we walk to do the shopping and put it onto the pram on the way home. I can honestly say this is the best pram we have ever used and would highly recommend this to anybody looking for a light, easy to push pram which can also have the car seat clipped onto the base. It really is the perfect pram!

    I bought this Pram before the birth of my first child. I thought it looked nice, folded well and was small enough for my car. The carry cot part of the pram is very good; large, comfortable and robust. I love the size of the basket underneath! When I started to go out on walks to the park and shops I found it was white heavy to push and steering was difficult. When you go up and down curbs it’s a bit of a struggle, the wheels seem to get stuck. I have kept the pram and I am expecting my second child in the next 2 months. If I were to buy a new pram I wouldn’t go for this again but due to the expense I will be using it for my second child.

    Love my pram. It’s super stylish and the materials used feel great quality. The basket is huge which is great but can be difficult to access when using the carrycot.
    The only real thing I struggle with is trying to lift the front wheels to mount a kerb. There isn’t a bar to put your foot on or anything so you really have to push down on the handle it can be quite difficult. Having said that, overall I love my pram and am so happy I got this one.

    Comfy for baby, feels sturdy however struggles on kerbs and cobbles and difficult to lift in and out of car. Found the pram easy to clean though and plenty of room if baby was bigger. Worth getting a liner for pushchair to help comfort as the seat doesn’t feel cushioned for a 6 month old. Instructions for the foot muff attachment were a bit confusing but on the whole a good pram. Not sure I will use when little one is heavier though due to weight.

    Brought this for my second born as I was only really familiar with fond memories of my first silvercross I had for my firstborn. This was meant to be designed for the countryside. It's very easy to maneuver even one handed. The extras are good minus the umbrella I found it to be quite flimsy. The chassis its self is very hardwearing. The cot unit is very spacious so plenty of room for growth. The seat unit is faultless, the colour packs are very easy to change. The whole seat unit is just a little flick up for it to Recline easy. All in all this is a very good pushchair/pram. Worth the money it has lasted through 2 children in this household and still going strong.

    I love my sand colour pioneer as it’s not a common colour to be seen, I have always had compliments on how beautiful it is. It’s lovely to push (my partner even likes to push it😂) I find it’s so easy to take the pram/seat off the base and isn’t fiddly at all. Good size storage basket underneath and folds down quite well and is compact. Overall I’m so glad I went for this pram!

    So I’ve been using the Silver Cross Pioneer for almost 6 months and was keen for this to be my pram of choice. Now I’ve used it for this long would I be ask keen to recommend it...? Probably not. Don’t get me wrong it has some great plus points but equally it has some very poor ones.
    I’ll take you through what I found to be great with this pram.
    1. The colour packs can be changed, you bought it in blue for your baby? Hey presto it can be changed to red/purple/yellow/grey etc and it’s like a new system all over again!
    2. The shopping basket is huge! You can fit a whole car boot under there (well you can’t by you catch my drift, massive!)!
    3. The carrycot is a good size, most prams I viewed the carrycots were tiny and having a winter baby I didn’t want her to outgrow it too early so she could stay snuggled!
    4. It’s smooth to steer on flat terrain, it fairs well on grass and gravel too.
    5. Easy to open chassis and fold back down.
    6. Most car seats can be used with this with adapters.
    7. Adjustable handle height. I’m 5ft 9, my husband 6ft 2 and my Nan who uses it is a teeny 4ft 11 and all of us are able to use it no problems!

    As you can see there are some great advantages to this pram. Now for what I thought wasn’t so good.
    1. So the flip side of the good sized carrycot is the fact that it’s so good it basically shuts off the whole shopping basket and unless you’re willing to buy slimline items or take the whole carrycot off every time you shop (baby and all), you’re not getting any shopping in there until you change to the seat.
    2. The wheels we great on most surfaces, however, even the smallest of kerbs were an issue for the wheels of the pioneer. Going down, no issue at all, worked as it should. Going up? No way! I’ve given myself whiplash a few times because I think it’s going to make it up 3/4 of an inch of kerb or even less but it just can’t do it!
    3. Once baby is into the seat part of the pram the straps become an issue, my baby isn’t the largest but she’s by no means tiny and the straps are just too long! They cannot be tightened at the back of the seat to keep her in place and they just hang there like two limp laces. I’ve had to get padding for her straps just so I can use it. Not good at all and definitely not safe.
    4. Size. It’s not compact at all and if you’re using the carrycot it’s cumbersome. My car isn’t small but it takes up my whole boot, even with the wheels taken off it makes zero difference. When the seat was attached I thought it would be better, nope, still huge and still taking up my boot.

    So as you can see, the good points are more plentiful than the bad but the bad points are game changers for most people buying a pram.
    Overall if I were to buy another pram, would I choose a Silver Cross Pioneer? From a money saving point of view, yes because I can change the colour pack and save a fortune. If I was a first time mum? No! Don’t do it, there are lots of prams at a fraction of the price that would do better.

    Loved this pram, it worked really well from newborn all the way up to 2+. The carrycot is large and very comfy. It’s attractive to look at, the storage basket is large and easily accessible. Only problem we found was that the wheels were unsuitable for any sort of bumpy surface This includes the canal path which is flat but has some small stones. The pram wheels would get jammed and it was very bumpy for Little ones. I would recommend this pram to anyone!
