Now, over my 7 years of parenting I have owned a few prams, some have been the best that I have ever owned… but there was one that I regret buying..
My list of prams that I have had are..
- Graco Mosaic
- Quinny Buzz 3
- Obaby tandem sport
- Quinny Buzz xtra
- Bugaboo Frog
- Icandy Peach 2
I know compared to others that it is both a small amount of prams and a large amount of prams, but keep in mind this is over a 7 year period and prams do break or get damaged, my Graco for example had a high speed impact of an idiot on a pushbike when my son was 10 weeks old, he was fine thankfully but the poor pram had to go, I didn’t even notice the big dent in the side until I got home…
But I am not calling that brown rickety pram the worst… by far the worst pram I have ever owned has been the Obaby Tandem Sport..
I wanted to get the Phil and Teds tandem, I liked the idea of it being a front and back pram, easy for shopping, so because of the price we decided to get the obaby’s version.. and I honestly have regretted ever since..
At first it was fine, but a few weeks went by and I noticed that one of the wheels had become loose, and no matter how hard I pushed it would not click into place, I had my mum look at it and it turned out that it had a small fault on the wheels, it the pole that kept the wheel secure was short by 9mm!
I of course contacted the company, and after going around in circles going nowhere I posted on their Facebook page about the problem… only to be blocked!!! In the end I ended up throwing the blasted thing out and as my son who was 2 at the time was confident in walking, I used the Quinny Buzz 3 that I got after the Graco accident, I also got him a little buggy board which he loved..
I then found many horror stories from obaby many being the same issue that I dealt with..
I am not saying that all obaby prams are crap, but in this case, this was the single worst pram I have ever owned, I wish now that we had paid the extra £30 and got the Phil and Teds tandem!
What has been your worst pram?
Until next time
