Pushchair Guide – Egg Stroller

Pushchair Guide 2018 – Egg Stroller

Starting price of £849. Available exclusively from Mothercare.

New for 2018, the Egg Stroller Set With Changing Bag in grey pewter is a stylish pushchair – designed in the UK for parents who enjoy a little bit of luxury. The stylish design of the Egg Stroller is akin to its name – a sleek, pod-like shape that mimics the shape of a hen’s egg.

Egg engineers have gone all out with the Egg Stroller. It is proving popular with parents and for good reason: Everything about this pushchair is engineered with comfort and functionality in mind, and built to exude quality. There’s no beating around the bush – the Egg is a little pricey but you’re paying for incredible quality and durability that’s plain to see from the moment you unpack it from the box. It certainly gives some of the more well known pushchair brands a run for their money.

The stroller is converts into a tandem pushchair and is available in other colours (but not as part of the set we are reviewing which includes changing bag). It’s suitable from six months of age up to a maximum weight of 25kg and has a two year guarantee included for peace of mind.

Compatible with a wide variety of car seats, including the Cybex Cloud Q, Maxi Cosi Cabriofix and Joie i-Gemm, the Egg Stroller folds down neatly and easily with one-hand operation into a compact little 67x59x29cm package. Also compatible with travel system.

The Facts

The Egg has all the options you could possibly want when it comes to seat positions. You can opt for world-facing or parent-facing positions depending on your little one’s age and your preference. The seat also has three different recline settings which can be altered at the touch of a button – quite literally. At the top of the seat there’s a handle which allows you to set the recline position with one hand. The seat also features five position calf adjustment which can be adjusted as your little one grows.

A pushchair’s tyres can often make or break the experience. We’ll try not to fangirl too much over the wheels, but it’s hard not to. Four wheel suspension makes all the difference – no worrying about waking up bubba when when out and about. And Tru-Ride Technology tyres make manoeuvring the Egg a dream; they ensure a smooth ride whether you’re on pavement or in the park. The Egg has two large back tyre and two small front tyres – but not too small they cause issues on rougher terrain. All four wheels have quick release and the front wheels give you the option to choose whether to set them as swivel or fixed depending on your preference (or the terrain).

With mumma and papa both considered in the design, the handle has a choice of five different heights to ensure comfort no matter who is doing the driving. It’s also wrapped in a thick layer of leather for added comfort (and style).

This model comes with a colour coordinated changing bag which is useful for carrying those extra bits and bobs. The mosquito net fits neatly into a concealed compartment under the foot rest so you don’t need to remember to pack it. The brake is located centrally at the back and is super sturdy and easy to use. If you’ve got a super small car boot, it’s useful to know that the wheels pop off too.

Fabrics are 100% polyester so are durable, and this model is a classy classic grey with a lovely texture. The lining of the seat has a lovely soft luxurious fleecy feel which makes it warm and cosy for your little one.

Overall, the Egg is sturdy, practical and exceptional quality. It looks great and manoeuvres well too.

What’s Extra?

There are plenty of accessories you can purchase from the Egg website to customise your pushchair. These include (but are not limited to):

Interesting Features

Something that the Egg has that is quite unusual is the ability to adapt into a tandem-style pushchair for two children. To do this you need to buy the tandem seat which then converts the pushchair, making it suitable for two! The weight limit for this as a single pushchair is 25kg but when tandem this lowers to 15kg per seat.

We all know the hassle involved in actually getting your child into a pushchair. It’s like a magic trick that involves juggling baby and loads of different straps. It’s tricky for even the most seasoned parents, but the egg engineers have saved the day and have included clips to hold the safety harness out the way whilst you’re getting your little one into the seat. As per European safety standards, it has a 5-point safety harness with padded areas for baby’s comfort.

Folding

The Egg engineers take folding seriously. To fold, you’ll need to first remove the seat, then twist the manual lock on the handle. Then, simply lift the fabric handle which folds the whole chassis up. Reverse this to unfold. It sounds odd but when you see it in action it’s deceptively simple. Also, because it splits into two parts this means if you have a smaller boot space you can easily fit the pushchair in.

What We Love

We love that the Egg is fitted with innovative Tru-Ride Technology tyres which are great for handling, give superb suspension and puncture prevention (because who’s got time for that?). They are engineered for better durability, performance and handling, making the whole experience more enjoyable.

There’s also plenty of height between the basket and the seat for easy access, but could do with higher sides.

What We’re Not So Taken With

As we’ve mentioned above, the basket could do with being a little deeper, but it’s not a big gripe, just preference, and also it’s worth pointing out that at 13.5kg the weight of the egg stroller is heavier than others (although you’d never know when pushing it).
