Trying to add more mum blog posts. So today I thought I would share my thoughts on our Mothercare Orb pram we bought in December 2017. Still on sale, currently £275 down from £450
We have been using this pram for 5 months now and feel we have a good idea on our thoughts for this pram.
The pram comes in three colours, Berry, Noir and Teal. Ours is the colour featured above.
The features included are the pram can turn in a 360 circle. To do this twist the centre of the pram handle and lift it up. This enable you to have your child facing you or front facing. This we have loved, and have used a lot, mainly when in eating areas and the pram needs to be at a certain angle.
This is an all in one pram. It transfers from a Moses setting right up into a toddler setting (3 settings in total). Easy to use the buckles to change to each setting. Fantastic for us as we don’t have much storage and the thought of having 3 separate pram parts drove me crazy.
Here is Clayne loving his pram, with the cosy toes setting in place. I love the cosy toes, definitely keeps my boy so warm. The lining is so soft, and the fact it is a head to toe cosy toes is even better. The toy I bought myself.
to lay my son down in the pram from the sitting position is easy, there is a small handle behind the head rest which if I pull I can guide the whole seat setting backwards. Stopping me from waking my son by fiddling with buckles etc.
The break system is easy to use. One pedal next to the back right wheel, push down once to lock, push down again to release. As easy as that. There are two breaks on the front two wheels but I don’t feel the need to use them, unless on a steep hill.
The only thing I have disliked about this pram is the basket underneath. Due to the pram rotating the mechanism protrudes into the basket therefore preventing a lot of storage space being used. I wish the basket was bigger and easier to access.
However overall I love this pram. No fiddly settings, takes up little room and folds up well. We got the all terrain model which for walks is fantastic because the grip on the wheels is great.
