As you can probably imagine travelling with three little ones under four years old is not an easy task. The twins are quite good at walking (we do a lot of it at home) but the youngest is the trouble maker. We just can’t seem to get it right: she is either full of energy and wants to run away or is too tired to walk. Our departure date has finally come (we are leaving in a few hours) and I think/hope we are well prepared, bringing an umbrella stroller with us to take on the plane to use at the airports and during the holiday.
A little while ago I picked up this Silver Cross Pop Stroller (from $269, now $99) on sale and I am so glad I did. I always thought I could get away with owning only a pram and not a stroller but since I purchased this little ride I have used it quite a few times and it has been fantastic. It is surprisingly easy to push which was always my biggest concern in regards to strollers; even in the hilly, uneven area where we live it rides very smoothly.
I was never very keen on strollers as many of the styles I have seen looked rather flimsy and unstable. It seems like with many other things you get what you pay for. The cheap designs won’t last long while the durable, high quality strollers are a bit more expensive but are designed for intense use. The Silver Cross brand is well known for its classic look and quality products so I felt confident I would not regret my purchase.
The Silver Cross Pop Stroller folds easily, one click and it is ready to go. The frame feels very sturdy, the wipe clean fabric is nice and strong and the shopping basket is quite roomy, perfect for a few groceries. My passenger always looks very comfy, even though she is nearly two there is plenty of room for her and the seat lays back for a quick snooze. I am happy too pushing the soft handles and having my drink within reach in the handy cup holder. Rain cover is included.
Not everyone will need it but we do use the matching Pop Travel Bag to protect our stroller while in transport on the plane/airport.
