Pushchair Guide Summer 2018 – Silver Cross Wayfarer Chelsea

Pushchair Guide Summer 2018 – Silver Cross Wayfarer Chelsea

Starting price of £725.

The Silver Cross Wayfarer Chelsea is a super chic little pushchair – and we wouldn’t expect anything less from upmarket brand Silver Cross. Hey, if Silver Cross is good enough for Prince George…

Built for convenience, the Silver Cross Wayfarer Chelsea is inspired by London’s urban chic which makes it perfect for city living. The Wayfarer is just one of many colours available (including midnight blue, onyx, platinum, linen and sky blue), but Chelsea is available exclusively from mum and baby brand Mothercare.

Made with high quality durable marl twill fabric and foam-filled puncture proof wheels, the Silver Cross Wayfarer Chelsea is designed to last. It comes with a carry cot, shopping basket and other useful accessories – combine this with the news that this pushchair is suitable from birth to toddler (max weight 25kg) and you get a lot of bang for your buck. And don’t forget the 2 year guarantee.

Compatible with Silver Cross Simplicity car seat (sold separately), the Wayfarer Chelsea adapts into a travel system and folds down in one piece into a tidy 86x54x34cm so it can fit into small cars.

The Facts

The Silver Cross Wayfarer Chelsea is nothing if not practical – with its roomy shopping basket you no longer have to play tetris with your belongings to cram everything in. It also has puncture proof, lockable swivel wheels made of foam for peace of mind, and a five point safety harness for to ensure there’s no chance of your little one wriggling out of the pushchair anytime soon.

The seat can be front or rear facing and it’s very simple to swap – just unclip, lift the seat and place back down in position, and features 3 position recline for comfort with single hand operation – fantastic for when you’re juggling 100 other things! The hood height is adjustable to protect your bubba from the sun, and it comes with a raincover for when the British weather really kicks in. In addition, this pushchair comes with a handy lie-flat carrycot which has a deep padded mattress for extra comfort, so you can leave your little one to sleep.

Sometimes pushchairs can be a let-down when you get into the dimensions, weight and storage but you may be pleasantly surprised. Made from aluminium, the Wayfarer is very lightweight, coming in at 6.5kg for the chassis, 3.5kg for the body and 3.5kg for the carrycot, making it easy to get in and out of the car when needed. And yes, it fits easily in the boot of small cars (though we would always recommend double checking dimensions before buying). When indoors, the pushchair fold upright for easy storage.

This really is the complete package that grows with your little one – and it conforms to European safety standards.

Folding and opening up the Silver Cross Wayfarer is simple. There are two levers placed at the base of the handles on both sides which you can use to fold the pushchair. It locks in place automatically, and can be opened again in the same way – simply use the levers and lift to open.

There are two options for folding the pushchair: you can either fold it with the seat in place (in a front-facing position only); or you can remove the seat and fold down the chassis only.

What We Love

There’s a lot to love about the Silver Cross Wayfarer Chelsea. We adore the flat carrycot with deep padded mattress which is suitable for overnight sleeping. This means that if your tiny trooper falls asleep when you’re out, you don’t need to disturb them when you’re home to get them into their cot or bed.

Oh and the generously sized basket – that definitely needs a mention. Forget trying to negotiate with the basket to fit everything in – there’s plenty of room for your bits, baby’s bits – and your coffee!

What We’re Not So Taken With

It’s a struggle to choose something we don’t like with the Silver Cross Wayfarer Chelsea. But if we had to, it’d be that the wheels are quite small, and tread on them isn’t very deep which means it can be tricky to negotiate rough terrain.
