Why We Love Our Silver Cross!

Pioneer is a family favourite!

New mum Rachel couldn't be happier with her Special Edition Pioneer Expedition - and here she tells us why.

During those nine months of baby growing comes the exciting task of the baby purchases, namely the pram. 

After enjoying browsing the shops, I came up with a checklist:

  • A car seat that could transfer from car to pram
  • A car seat I could use with Isofix
  • A pram easy to fold and extend (and light)
  • Not a standard boring pram!

So I came across the iconic Silver Cross collection and fell in love with the Special Edition Expedition. The bronze chassis with contrasting cream interior, plus the fur seat liner, all stood out (especially as it matches my favourite coat, which is having lots of use this winter!) 

I love all the additions that came with it too. No longer did I need to look for a changing bag, as it came with a stylish matching bag plus a changing mat and thermal bottle holder.

It was hard to decide which model to go for in this range, but I felt the Pioneer suited me best. I liked the larger basket and it’s been great when popping to the shops. 

It's been super easy to use and even the grandparents are loving it! The first time they took baby out for a walk they asked me to put up the pram and add the newborn carrycot as they were out of practice, but when I showed them how easy it all was they were amazed and haven't been shown since!

When out and about up and down the steep pavements and parks where I live, I’ve noticed how light the pram is and how easily it adapts to different terrains. Meanwhile baby is safely cushioned on her newborn carrycot mattress enjoying lots of naps.

I have the matching Simplicity car seat too and love that it gives plenty of support to my newborn, plus it has adjustable cushioned pads in fabrics to match the pram. 

I also love the Simplifix Isofix base. The indicators which turn from red to green to indicate it’s fitted correctly are ingenious, especially when you first come home from hospital and thinking doesn’t come easily! I’m grateful for this at every use when it just slots right in.

I couldn’t be happier with my choice and topping it off is the compliments I’ve been receiving on how nice the pram is when we're out and about, which is always a bonus!
