    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!

    We got our Brompton pioneer as part of a bundle from mothercare and we love it.
    It’s so easy to go from carrycot, to pushchair and car seat.
    If our baby is asleep in the car it’s so handy to just click the car seat on to the chassis and not disturb him.
    It does take up quite a lot of room in the boot of the car so make sure you have plenty of space.

    I bought this pram as part of a travel system set with the car seat, pram and carrycot when my daughter was born. The carrycot has a large hood and comfy mattress and my daughter slept well in it during walks when newborn. She has now moved on to the seat unit and finds it very comfy and is happy to go in it. The chassis has a large basket which is useful when going shopping or out for the day. We had the adaptors so also sometimes attach the car seat when going into a shop quickly which is very handy.
    The only negative is that the pram is very heavy and when folded the chassis and seat unit take the whole boot so it is not ideal for smaller boots.

    I love using this pram, it’s bright and colourful, easy to steer and you can change the wheels so they eaither swivel or are locked straight. There is also 3 levels the handle bar can go up to which makes it great for all heights. Lots of space for shopping too. Only downside to it is that it’s hard to fold down as you have to take the seat off to fold it down so it takes up a lot of space.

    I love Silvercross prams, I’ve had a silvercross surf and the Pioneer now and they are my favourite brand. I have got a mothercare genie double for my sons while they’re small but will be going back to my Pioneer once the eldest can use a buggyboard.

    Being quite the grey fan, and wanting a pram that would last us if we went on to have a second little one, the Silver Cross Pioneer seemed the perfect pram for us. We opted for the special edition from John Lewis, which was a grey colour with a black chassis. Perfect for if we went on to have a boy. (We have a little girl now)
    This pram was easy to assemble, from the outset, the hood was the bit we struggled with the most. The carrycot is lovely and roomy for a newborn, but my little girl did grow out of it fairly quickly. She is quite tall though, so she was in the seat unit by the time she was just over three months. The apron really sets off the carry cot and makes it look a classy product. Plenty of room to tuck in those blankets aswell. My little girl loves the seat unit and the fur liner looks amazing. However, the straps do not seem to reflect the price of the pram. The strap pads slip off so often because the strap that goes ovet the shoulder detaches from the waist strap meaning every time we put her in it it's quite the kerfuffle. They are quite hard to get into the buckle aswell. In regards to pushing, I couldn't fault it. We live on a new build estate where the paths have not yet been completed but I have no worries with my pram. I love that the back wheels are larger and compared to the wayfarer it is a breeze to push. Another little thing is that you can not collapse the chassis if the carry cot or seat unit is on, but they are so easy to attach that it is not really a problem. Overall, I am happy with this product and hope it continues to serve us well in the future.

    If I had to pick again I would pick this buggy. I have friends who have recently transferred their little ones into a more lightweight buggy for ease.. but not me, I will be keeping my little one in here for as long as possible. I love how easy it is to use, the giant basket for shopping, the comfortability for my little one, with a great range of accessories.. what more could I want!!

    I brought this pram for my 5th baby. (So have had many prams over the years) I loved the fact it came as a bundle with everything I needed. Carry cot is spacious and has plenty of room in it. Seat unit is nice and roomy. Car seat is ok, but hood could do with being a bit bigger. Pushes a dream, even with a child either side pulling it back. Baby always seems happy and comfortable in pram, footmuff spacious and very warm.

    I love this pram it’s stylish, good quality, and super comfy for baby! It’s amazingly easy to take down and put up, a smooth ride for baby whilst in the pram, easy to swap between carry cot and seat. The seat is also good for small babies that like to look around as it’s three positions mean baby can be laying down without being completely flat. Both the carrycot and seat have super soft comfy padding that you would be happy to lay on yourself something you want to see knowing your baby will be comfortable while in it. Overall I would recommend this product good value worth the money, built to last and baby loves it

    When I first brought this product I loved it, it's has all the things you want in a pram/pushchair and the style of its beautiful and it looks really snug and comfortable, however I did have more than a few issues with it one being the the front wheels would lock straight at the slightest knock making steering difficult also I found it quite heavy and bulky even when folded, If you have a small car boot it's a nightmare to fit and theres no suspension what's so ever so I cant imagine it being a smooth ride.
    I like the added accessories and that you can choose the colour you want but I dont think it's worth the price.

    Looks lovely and easy to fold.
    Baby looks and is comfortable in both the carry cot and pushchair. Carry cot c an also be used for occasional over night sleeping. Nice big basket buy can struggle to access when the carry cot is attached.
    Bumper bar is easy to use and adds a nice touch and nice large hood.

    Smaller wheels have caused to get stuck easily and stop suddenly and not great for a dog walk.

    I absolutely love this pram it's so easy to use and stylish. I feel silver cross will always be around so I can put it away for our next baby in years to come. It has such smooth steering and my baby is comfortable inside. The only problem I've come across now is that my baby is sitting up and wanting to look around so I've set up his chair part as he is coming up 6 months anyways but I'm having difficulty with the straps. The straps around his waist part in particular, I can't get them tight enough to fit snug around his waist and my baby is quite a chunky one! However the straps that go over his shoulders and between his legs are perfect! I've looked in the manual, googled etc but not much information given so I'm currently in 2 minds at the minute as I've had such a great experience so far. The fold on this pram is also quite bulky so probably not the best for a small car.

    The best pram I’ve had.
    Lasted 3 years before I sadly had to rehome.
    Had a few scratches but hardly anything for 3 years.
    If I ever had another baby I would definitely be having another.
    Lots of colour packs to change the colour if you wanted
    Love how you can have front and rear view, I love being able to see my little one while pushing them.

    I love this pram. It’s so easy to use and switch from carrycot to car seat and back and forth. The folding is so simple to do which makes a busy life just that little bit easier. I would always prefer it to be slightly lighter but that’s just my bad back doing the talking. The only downside is I personally prefer bigger wheels which give a smoother ride and more suspension. Maybe actual tyres would benefit this pram? But the pushing of the pram is easy enough with one hand I’m pretty happy with it.

    So happy with the look of the pushchair, people commented on it often. Bought whilst on offer so got a free car seat which was great. It goes up and down easily, is sturdy and could be taken on any journey. Yet because it’s sturdy it can be quite heavy in comparison to other pushchairs. Used for all ages and my child is big yet had plenty of space.

    I bought this after seeing it at the baby shop and comparing it to other brands and models. To me, it feels lovely to push and feels very sturdy which is what you need in a pram. It comes in a variety of colours however I chose a classic black. The shopping basket underneath is a great size and I can manage to fit plenty of the food shop there so I don't have to struggle with the bags and the pushchair at the same time.
    My only advice if you are considering this pram, is to check that it will fit in your boot. It is quite large and if you need to fit other stuff in there too then you might struggle.

    This is my first buggy and I have loved it. It's been great from birth, up until toddlers. It's very easy to change between the trave systems. It is easy to push, the wheels are durable and go over anything. The only struggle I have is if I am holding my child I cannot open up the buggy with one hand. I have to put my little one down and then release the latch and pull it up. Apart from that I have loved using it. Would definitely recommend silver cross. It's a fantastic buggy

    Really adore the look of the wayfarer I bought the Henley special addition (navy quilted effect!) but didn’t pre test the buggy before purchase, I went by the brand name and look! I find it feels very flimsy when trying to manoeuvre up curbs or on rough terrain feels like the part which attaches to the front wheels will snap, also really struggle folding in / out, was stuck in the rain last week trying to get it to fold back down, also the frame with the Moses basket bit is massive so luckily I have a large car but now I have it I would advise people to go and test before buying and make sure it fits in your car!!
