The updated iCandy Apple 2 Pear pushchair

Today, iCandy is launching the updated Apple 2 Pear double pushchair at the annual Harrogate Nursery Fair. We were given a preview at the iCandy offices last week to see if the changes have improved this pushchair.

After feedback from customers and our pushchair tests, iCandy has made a number of changes to the Apple 2 Pear pushchair, particularly the way it converts from a single Apple pushchair to a double Pear. 

As this product is only just launching at the fair and won't officially be on sale for a couple of months, we haven't sent it to our lab yet for testing. But one of our researchers has taken a look at the new model to see if the changes have improved the design and how easy it is to use.

As a double, this pushchair has a number of seating options: two pushchair seats, two child car seats or two carrycots - and any of these can be mixed and matched. The hood also comes in seven colours.

The main changes to this pushchair involve the kit needed to convert it, which is now £110 instead of £300. There are slimmer seats and the ability to fold the pushchair with the seats attached. But have these changes made the pushchair easier to manoeuvre and use?

Before deciding whether or not to buy this pushchair, make sure you take a look at our reviews of iCandy pushchairs.

Here at Which? we spend more than £70,000 a year testing pushchairs, which is based on what matters most to you. We look at:

  • safety and durability - including how well a pushchair is made, its strength and stability and the quality of its locking mechanisms and brakes
  • ease of use - including folding and pushing, attaching and removing accessories plus cleaning and loading the pushchair into a car boot.

We wheel the pushchairs for around 86km along a bumpy treadmill track to find out how well they will cope with a life of uneven pavements, potholes and kerbs.

All pushchairs are assessed by both our experts and our parent panel, who try out and rate each pushchair with their child.
