Top 5 | New & Upcoming Pushchairs 2015

Today I thought I would bring you a post about some of my favourite new and upcoming pushchairs ! Whether you're a first time parent looking for the perfect travel system, or you are looking for something new for your growing bundle, I can guarantee you'll fall in love with at least one of these beauties! It's a bit of a long post, but better to do too much research than not enough  I say!

Pushchairs come in all different shapes and sizes, weights, colours and prices. There are literally thousands and thousands out there for you to choose from, so what is it that you REALLY need? Only you can answer that question, we all have different needs, some need something that can be folded up quickly, some need something light, whilst others prefer something with that extra wow factor or even a sports stroller for taking the little one out whilst you keep fit! 

I've carried out some thorough research to bring you what I think are the top 5 new and upcoming pushchairs of 2015, something to suit all needs and wants but keeping safety and comfort at the top of the priority list! 

1. Black Rose Gold Urbo2
My favourite brand Mamas & Papas have created this fabulous NEW Rose Gold edition of their award-winning Urbo2. The head-turning stroller, launching on 10th August, is the ultimate way to ride one of the biggest trends in fashion! When I first caught sight of this, I couldn't quite believe how gorgeous it was, with the unique and stunning rose gold frame and black fabric, it definitely stands out from the rest!

The Urbo2 has built-in front and rear suspension, with a light, compact frame, the new Signature Edition of Mamas & Papas award-winning stroller combines smoothness and agility with the height of fashion. Inspired by the metal of the moment, Mamas & Papas have given the pushchair a dramatic look by contrasting a rose gold frame, chassis and wheels with black fabric finished with rose gold detailing. 

Stylish but still functional, it also folds down to fit into the skinniest of hallways and the boot of the smallest cars, yet it can still take bumps, buses and busy caf├ęs in its stride! Finding a light weight, sturdy and attractive pushchair is actually pretty hard to come across, but once again Mamas & Papas have combined everything together and brought out quite honestly, one of the prettiest pushchairs I have ever seen!

Look out for more details online and in store soon!

2. Armadillo Flip XT
I can vouch for this personally because it is our current go to pushchair! Abbie looks so much more comfortable than some others we have tried, she has lots of leg room, and still has room to grow too! The size of the shopping basket is huge, seriously the biggest i've had in terms of pushchairs, it doesn't sag when it's full and definitely is a big lifesaver when i've accidentally bought a bit too much from the shops ;). But our favourite part of all, is how easy it is to fold, with just one hand it can be transformed into the most compact pushchair, again, that we have ever used!

With Chunky wheels with tread-for extra grip and comfort on the go, it works perfectly on different terrains and can be used from birth up to 4 years! One of the things I looked for in a pushchair was the opportunity to have it rear and forward facing which is what you have here, a super cushioned seat for ultimate comfort and wipe clean fabric too! 
As well as;

Wheel lock-swivel wheels, which can be locked and released for better manoeuvring
Removable wheels-for squeezing into the tightest of spaces
Easy rider- front and rear wheel suspension for a smooth and comfy ride.
Auto lock-chassis stays secure when folded.
Travel friendly-easy carry handle for when you have your arms full.
Peek-a-boo window-for quick check-ups through the hood.
Flip flop friendly brake- for easy stop and go

And if you have a toddler, it's super easy for them to get themselves in and out of as well, Abbie climbs up in no time! Click here for more info!

3. Thule Urban Glide
A gorgeous all round sports stroller from one of my favourite brands Thule, the sports brand of all sports brand, keeping active families in mind with incredible products, such as bike carriers, child carrier, bike seats and luggage to name a few! Whatever adventure your family will go on next, Thule have you covered to make your experience safe easy and stylish! 

I just know this product isn't going to let me down! With a sleek and lightweight design, and slightly smaller wheels than the original Glide, it is perfect for urban mobility or jogging on your favourite path! 

The Urban Glide also offers one-handed compact folding for storing and transporting, a swivel front wheel for easy manoeuvrability which locks into place for jogging, ergonomic handlebar with a range of heights for parent's comfort, as well as rear suspension for a smooth and comfortable ride, a comfy padded seat with vented top, multi-position canopy for added protection and a large storage compartment with zippered water resistant cover too!

4. Joolz Geo Studio Duo / Tailor
One of our very first pushchairs was the gorgeous Joolz Day, a stunning and elegant pushchair with some really incredible features! I was so excited to hear they were releasing a duo pushchair and even more excited to see what it looked like! 

With double stitching, black wheels and beautiful fabrics, the Studio collection is on par, if not even more gorgeous than the an the other pushchairs in the brand! The comfortable and practical cot has a hypoallergenic breathable mattress which is also suitable for sleeping at night. The sun hood features an Air Top: a clever, hidden ventilation opening made from a breathable mesh fabric that can be opened to allow the extra flow of fresh air too, perfect for the warmer months! 

The seat and cot are perfectly positioned to relieve your back when lifting your baby in or out of the Joolz Day, and with the four-wheel-suspension, it is always an easy and comfy ride so your little ones can sit and sleep comfortably too!

  The stunning collection is available Autumn 2015. You can pre-order the colours Gris & Graphite online now (pay later)!

And now with the amazing service of Joolz Tailor, you have the opportunity to add those little personal touches to create the EXACT pushchair you are looking for. Be it Natural vibes, striking contrast or playful colours. It’s up to you! This unique customisation program offers up to 120 different colour combinations for parts of the pushchair, The Tailor comes as a complete package with a matching nursery bag and
footmuff too. These accessories are also customized with your selected colour!

5. CYBEX Priam
Probably the first pushchair that catches your eye above, the gorgeous colouring and super soft fabric make this one of the comfiest and brightest pushchair out there. If you're needing this from the very beginning, you can purchase the 3in1 system, use it as a pushchair with matching carry cot, with one of the award winning CYBEX car seats and later as a luxurious buggy!

You can even choose what tyres you want, yes, really, so if you're planning more rural off road trips, adding the trekking wheels will be perfect, whereas if you're more of a city stroller (see what I did there?), the light wheels will be the best suited for you!

Cybex has put everything it knows about style, safety and functionality (which is a huge amount) into its first luxury travel system hoping to make it an instant hit. And it wouldn’t be high-end without the ability to be used in two-wheel mode, like the Bugaboo Cameleon and Buffalo. 

But what makes the Priam different is that the front wheels can be replaced with skis, so you and your little one can “free-ride” through the snow - on one of your, no doubt, numerous ski-ing trips.
