The Bugaboo Cameleon 3 and Uppababy Cruz are just two of the most interesting and exciting pushchairs captured on video by Which? this year.
We reviewed more than 75 new pushchairs at our test laboratory in 2012. But, putting each pushchair through all our rigorous tests takes many weeks, so we also film interesting new releases before we send them to the lab – you can see these previews in our pushchair video reviews.
We have dozens of pushchair videos for you to watch – but here we’ve compiled a list of our most notable pushchair video reviews of 2012.
For more details of all the pushchairs we’ve tested and reviews of more than 170 individual pushchairs, visit our full pushchair reviews.
The biggest release: Bugaboo Cameleon 3
As one of the most frequently read pushchair reviews on our website, there’s no doubt that the most important new pushchair of the year was the Bugaboo Cameleon 3:
The first two Bugaboo Cameleon incarnations had too many niggles to qualify as Which? Best Buys, but Bugaboo claimed to have changed 90% of the materials and design for the new Cameleon 3.
So has the new Cameleon changed for the better? Read our review of the Bugaboo Cameleon 3 to find out if it is a Best Buy.
The best first impression: Uppababy Cruz
We took a real liking to the Uppababy Cruz when we made our video of it at the Harrogate Nursery Fair in March.
This travel-system pushchair is very similar to the popular Uppababy Vista, but it’s a bit smaller and lighter to make it more suitable for car and public transport users.
Uppababy kept us in suspense for longer than we hoped for the release of the Cruz – but we’ve got it in the test lab now – follow our link to read our full review of the Uppababy Cruz.
The most eye-catching: Cosatto Giggle
You really need to watch our video of the Cosatto Giggle to get the full impact of its eye-catching mix of bright, cheerful fabrics and stylish frame colour.
Some will love it, some will loath it. But our positive first impressions mean it’s definitely one to watch out for when we publish our full test results in January.
Cleverest features in theory: Easywalker June
In theory, the Easywalker June is a really exciting pushchair.
Unlike many other pushchairs with a reversible seat (one that can face the parent or face forward), you can fold this pushchair with the seat facing in either direction – normally you need to remove the seat or turn it forwards first.
But, as you can see in our video review of the Easywalker June, our first impression of this clever feature is that it’s not quite as easy to use as one might hope.
To find out if our pushchair lab experts and panel of parent testers agreed with our initial assessment, read our Easywalker June review.
Most stylish compact double: Babystyle Oyster Max
Delays with its release mean that the Babystyle Oyster Max has not made it to our testing lab yet.
But as you can see in our Oyster Max video, filmed at a German trade show this Autumn, there is plenty to be excited about with this double pushchair. It’s based on a Which? favourite, the Babystyle Oyster, and converts from a single to double pushchair with ease.
It’s one to watch out for in 2013.
