How we review Silver Cross pushchairs
Our experts in the test lab put each Silver Cross pushchair through more than 30 tests to check its strength, durability and safety, in line with British standards.
We assess how easy the pushchair is to push, adjust for children of different ages and fold up. We also test whether it will fit unfolded on an escalator and on public transport, or folded in the boot of a small family car. We even find out how easy it is to remove food stains from the pushchair fabric.
The final part of our testing involves a panel of parents (and their babies), who rate the appearance and features of the pushchair and take it for a spin to see how easy and convenient it is to manoeuvre on pavements, bumpy ground, up and down stairs and around other obstacles.
You can find out more about how we test pushchairs and read customer views from parents who already own each pushchair in our full pushchair reviews.
