If you have been round this neck of the internet before you will know that personally I am a massive pushchair obsessive. So it really does come as no surprise that Jacob is somewhat obsessive about them too.
Normally my chief tester on these missions things were about to change recently when he got the opportunity to become his own chief tester when the kind folks at Play Like Mum asked if he would like to try out his very own pushchair, the Silver Cross Pioneer 5 in 1 dolls pram.
Now I have to say I was obviously thrilled for him as I knew he would LOVE this toy. For me however I love nothing more than trying out any pushchair real life or play so I couldn’t wait for this delivery.
When it first arrived I loved the Grey colour option we chose for them as its one I would have picked for a real pushchair so it was a great start. What I also loved was how life-like the play pushchair is. Designed to be a replica of Silver Cross’ Pioneer it was great to see that it was just that!
It has the ability to be used in pushchair or carrycot modes all with a flick of some heavy-duty poppers meaning no storing extra pieces as it’s the same parts used for both. This pushchair can be also used in forward or parent facing mode and with its sturdy construction we couldn’t wait to see how the boys got on.
I do need to point out at this stage that Jacob is coming up for 2 and this pushchair is designed for use with 4-7 year olds so he has only been playing while supervised and secretly I was hoping I could encourage his 6-year-old brother, Joshua to still get in on the imaginative play too.
The boys loved this dolls pushchair, the adjustable handlebar made it ideal for us to adjust it so it was easier to push for both boys. Jacob loves his ‘baby’ so was thrilled he got to take it with him while playing too! The oversized hood is just like the adult version and the detailing of the bow and the stitching was really pretty without being over the top girlie so great for boys and girls.
The basket underneath is fabulous and if you fancied taking it shopping with the kids it can easily fit some groceries in there! … After all nothing like helping and playing.
Although for Joshua its all about how many football you can take with you!
Talking of playing, I can confirm that both boys love the silver cross dolls pushchair although Joshua barely gets a look in from Jacob as he has taken it on as his new obsession!
The Silver Cross Pioneer 5 in 1 retails at £59.99 and you can find more information on the Play Like Mum website.
