You might have seen it in the hands of David Beckham, Jacqueline Jossa, Abbey Clancy and Theo Walcott, but there’s more to the iCandy Peach than just eye-catching style. Now in its fourth generation, this British designed pushchair has become the travel system of choice for parents who demand the utmost in safety, quality and fashion.
iCandy are a British family company whose roots date back to 1933. Since then their precision manufacturing journey has led them to creating what is considered by many to be the definitive pushchair.
The Peach has been around since 2010, but remains a favourite with parents worldwide as it is designed to transform from a single pushchair to a double pushchair as your family grows – so there’s no need to buy a second pushchair if another baby comes along.
And the beauty of the Peach is that even in double mode it retains a true single footprint, meaning you won’t struggle to manoeuvre through doors or tight spaces. And if you’re having twins, iCandy have got that covered too with the Peach Blossom Twin, which comes with two Blossom (newborn) carrycots and two seat units.
The unique elevator adaptors bring baby closer to you in parent-facing mode to encourage more interaction and better development, and in world-facing mode they raise the seat unit to the height of a table so you can use the pushchair as a high chair.
iCandy pride themselves on their design prowess paired with quality materials and the new Peach is no different. The lightweight aluminium frame and large, puncture proof EVA tyres mean that pushing a Peach is virtually effortless. From the very first touch it’s clear that this is a product designed to perform and meet the highest expectations of even the most particular of parents.
With lockable swivel front wheels and all-round independent suspension, it’s also an ultra-comfortable ride for baby, giving a smooth ride regardless of surface. The class-leading 25kg seat unit weight limit demonstrates just how much testing and engineering go into an iCandy product. From the ground up this pushchair is built to last, and it’s no wonder that iCandy offer a lifetime warranty with the Peach as well.
For 2016 iCandy have given the Peach an all-new one-touch buckle, soft-feel leatherette handles and bumper bars, as well as eight stunning new colourways available in Chrome, Black and also new for 2016 Space Grey chassis colour. Each Peach pushchair also has the option of a perfectly colour-matched carrycot, which can be used from birth to around 6 months.
As the safest and most comfortable way for your newborn to be transported, iCandy carrycots feature a lie-flat design that ensures baby’s airways and spine are protected. They are also suitable for permanent overnight sleeping – ideal to use as a Moses basket or when visiting friends and family. After 6 months or 9kg, the baby can then safely be pushed with the seat unit, which can be parent- or world-facing and even features 3 recline positions.
Out and about, it’s easy to see why the Peach has been chosen by so many parents. The basket holds up to 5kg in weight and the adjustable handle makes it easy to adjust the height between parents. And when it comes to attaching a car seat, that’s no problem with the optional Car Seat Adaptors which support Maxi Cosi, Cybex, Kiddy, BeSafe and Nuna car seats (check iCandy’s website for exact models).
If you’re looking for a pushchair that’s easy to live with, the Elevator Adaptors really are a game changer. In parent-facing mode you don’t have to worry about having to find a high chair as you can roll the Peach straight up to a table. In world-facing mode having your baby closer to you makes such a difference to the amount of interaction and security you feel. You can also use the elevators with the carrycot from birth – a time when it’s crucial for development that interaction is at its greatest.
And when it’s time to collapse the pushchair, iCandy have made it simple with one-handed seat unit removal and a super-compact, free-standing fold – perfect for slotting in the back of the car or storing away out of sight. The optional carry strap is also a nice touch for popping over your shoulder.
The Peach is available in single, double or twin configurations and the 2016 model is hitting shop floors in the next couple of weeks.
