Stroller Obsession: iCandy
This is one smokin’ hot stroller. You know me… I love things that are a little different, a lot stylish, and incredibly functional. The day I received my iCandy Pear, complete with flashes of chrome and my own custom colors… you would have thought I received a pair of Christian Louboutins in the mail. I’m a little cuckoo for my strollers.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Life in the city requires an awesome stroller. It needs to hit so many points on levels of accessibility and functionality, and there are so many to choose from. This is where my Stroller Obsession comes from: My quest to find the perfect stroller.
The iCandy Pear is making a mighty strong case for itself in my book. With up to twenty different seating options to accommodate either twins, two infants or two smaller children (they say it will carry up to a 3 year old), this stroller adjusts with life. I loved that I could carry both children or remove one seat for the days when I take Zoe to school. Plus, you have the option to buy the flavour packs- washable seat inserts in fabulous colors such as blackcurrant, redcurrant, grape, imperial and mandarin.
The iCandy Pear has inflatable tires and weighs in at a rather hefty 39.5 pounds with all of the accessories. We took it on the bus, on the subway, in a taxi, and through the snow and rain. Both seats recline, and individual rain covers are included for each seat. When two larger children (ie 2 and 3 year olds) are riding, the stroller gets a little difficult to steer, and the storage basket is inaccessible when the second seat is installed. Both seats must be removed from the frame in order to fold and store the stroller when traveling, or closet storage if you live in an apartment (like us).
I love my iCandy Pear. That said, there are a few little things that make it less than optimal for my personal lifestyle (i can’t take it alone with the kids if I’m traveling on the subway or bus). We use it daily though, as it does hit many of the points that I need it to… it’s narrow, easily converts to accommodate one or two children, is tricked out and damn sexy.
Or, in the off chance “Big Baby” needs a lift as well.
