Playing Mummy With John Crane and Their Gorgeous Wooden Pink BuggyPosted by Would Like To Be A Yummy Mummy on May 21, 2012 in toy review, Toy Testers, toys
The girls couldn’t wait to see what was in the box when it arrived but when they saw you had to put it together they looked a bit concerned and Poppy (almost 4) said “I think this is a job for Daddy”.
I was a little insulted as it looked pretty easy but just then my Husbands Cousin turned up so off I went to make tea!
In the box you should have:
- 1 x Pintoy wooden buggy frame
- 1 x Buggy blanket and pillow
- 16 x Screws
- 1 x Set of assembly instructions
The girls quickly talked Uncle David into putting it together for them which he did pretty quickly and with little trouble. Everything you needed was in the box (except the instructions). Luckily it was very straightforward and he had no trouble at all (even I could have done it)!
The girls were thrilled with the result. Rosie (22 months) loves her dolls and prams at the moment so was really excited and couldn’t wait to get pushing it around. Poppy at almost four has not played with dolls for a while but couldn’t wait to have a go too. They happily took it turns pushing it up and down the hallway, playing very nicely together. I actually find they still play together nicely with this so I am a happy Mummy.
The pram itself is made of natural and pink wood and has four rubberised wheels. The bedding is a pretty colourful flowery pattern, perfect for my two little princesses. It really is a beautiful pram (the word buggy does not do it justice).
We have had this pram for almost two weeks now and it is used daily. The girls love it so I love it too. All of their dolls, teddies and toys have had a go in it.
It is sturdy and well made, never tips up and is incredibly pretty to look at. The handle is a good height too and it also wipes clean if they touch it with sticky fingers. I think you can see from these photos that my girls love it:
Aimed at children 3+ I would probaly say its more suitable as a first pram. In fact with another little girl due in less than 9 weeks I think it will make a great alternative to a walker for her when she gets bigger. It doesn’t appear to run away with them and is easy to steer.
The only thing I would say it that it is a bit noisier than the plastic buggy they already had. Not really noisy just noisier and not a problem for us at all.
I can see this is a toy that is going to be well used and loved.
A huge thank you John Crane
