Is the latest iCandy pushchair a Best Buy? It looks like a Bugaboo, does it perform like one?
12 February 2015
The latest results from our tough Which? pushchairs tests are in. We've wheeled nine of the latest pushchairs and strollers over 128 miles of bumpy simulated road and subjected them to more than 30 British Standards tests to reveal the best of the bunch.
Pushchairs from brands including Cosatto, iCandy, Maclaren and Mamas and Papas were then scrutinised by our pushchair experts to see how easy they are to fold, unfold, lift and carry and load into a car boot. We even wheel them onto a simulation of a typical urban bus and escalator and up and down stairs.
Then it was time to let our parent-panel testers and their children loose on the pushchairs, putting them through their paces on unique our obstacle course, designed to replicate daily life with a pushchair.
Stroll straight over to our pushchair reviews to see which newly tested models are the best.
iCandy Raspberry pushchair
The iCandy Raspberry pushchair was one of the big names to face our latest tests. It is iCandy's lightest ever travel system, and is designed to make it easier for parents to get around in the city, but does it live up to its expectation? And is it good enough to justify its £420 price tag?
The Raspberry comes with a lie-flat seat, it folds compact and can stand upright once folded, and it comes with a shopping basket and additional storage pod. It resembles a Bugaboo, but does it perform like one?
Find out exactly how well it did in our tough tests, and what our parent panel thought of it in our iCandy Raspberry pushchair review.

If you're after something a little more lightweight than a travel system, then a stroller is a good choice.
Updated versions of the Maclaren Quest and the Maclaren Triumph were included in our latest tests, as well as the cool and funky looking Cosatto Supa which comes with a transparent multi-media pocket in the hood for on-the-go entertainment for your little one.
We've also put the revolutionary BabyJogger Vue, launched last year, through its paces. This lightweight, umbrella-fold stroller can be used forward-facing or, with a simple flip of the seat unit, parent-facing.
