Prams & Strollers
By Baby Village on 29 October 2019

Choosing the right pram or stroller for your baby is one of the first decisions you’ll make when setting up for your new baby. At Baby Village we’re here to help you make that choice easy & fun, matching the right features to your lifestyle.
 
As with anything, there are options ranging from budget right through to ultra-premium, here we’ll look at three popular prams at the entry-level end of the scale that offer quality and value for money.


MOUNTAIN BUGGY SWIFT 2019

Our opinion: If you’re looking for a lightweight & compact pram that you can easily hit the city streets or head off-road with, this is a great option for you. With an adjustable but not extendable handlebar this pram is better suited to shorter parents. Air-filled tyres make for a smooth ride for Bub.

  • All terrain air-filled tyres
  • Lockable front wheel
  • Extendable sun canopy with peekaboo

Mountain Buggy Swift
