After being invited to the launch of the very popular Silver Cross Wayfarer this time last year I was keen to keep up to date with news from Silver Cross. Over the past week there has been two pieces of news from them.
The Kensington is perfect for parents who want a traditional style pram but with the praciticality of a detachable body and collapsible chassis. With it's hand stitched fabrics and hand painted fine line detailings the colour choices are stunning and elegant.
Key Features include;
Large wheels with puncture resistant tyres
All round suspension for a smoother ride
Adjustable seat supports your child when they sit up in the pram
Suitable from birth with fully lie flat position
Foldable chassis for easy transportation and storage
Also including a large shopping basket which clips easily into place on the chassis and is large enough to carry all baby and parent needs and a deeply padded mattress with a soft white pique cover.
Extras include the sun canopy, bedding set, rain shield, storage cover and changing bag. (Optional extras).
These prams are truly elegant and draw attention wherever you go. My Mum had one when myself and my siblings were younger and she then purchased one when I had my first daughter back in 2003.
Would I use one? Yes. These prams are built to last, built to be passed down through generations and built to be used. As a non driver I pound the pavements every day on school runs, shopping errands and also trying to go for long walks as and when I can. This pram would be perfect. I can also see the collapsible chassis and removable body making it more desirable for fitting in the car and being able to take it with you wherever you go, this is a big bonus with the Kensington.
Dimensions for Kensington (unfolded): Length 133cm Width 58cm Height 120cm
(internal dimensions): Length 89cm Width 36cm Height 18cm
(folded): Length 89cm Width 58cm Height 48cm
At £1,250 it's definitely not a budget pram but built to the highest standards and handcrafted using traditional methods you certainly pay for the excellent build and quality of each pram made.
