Bonjour lecteurs! We have been using the same buggy for pretty much two years and a half. I spent a lot of time looking into it before Baba arrived (it was one my big baby essentials!). I have been very happy with it so far but as we were off to Spain, I wanted something a bit smaller. A stroller was the best option for us to travel on the plane. The decision was made to try something totally cool so we went for the iCandy Raspberry. We have tested it in all the conditions and even before going on holiday because pourquoi pas? 🙂 Here is for you our Frenchie iCandy Raspberry Review! If you are too looking for a city stroller, regardez!
iCandy Raspberry Review – First Impressions
Weighing 6.6 kg, the iCandy Raspberry has been designed to be the perfect urban stroller. With a lie-flat seat unit so that it is suitable from birth, it has without a doubt a very distinguished look!
As soon as it arrived, I was very impressed with the whole package. Not only we receive a very good looking stroller but we also got spoiled with fab accessories such as a cup holder and some car seat adaptors.
Baba was well excited when we opened the box and he was very eager to test it himself.
Great start! Now let’s share with you 5 things we like with iCandy Raspberry!
A Beautiful Stroller
Call me superficielle but I totally love the iCandy Raspberry look! The brand offers a large choice of couleurs but we decided to go for a neutral grey. If I had a girl, I would have totally bought the pink version! It is too cute to be ignored!
Super easy to manoeuvre, the stroller is very chic and we love the space in the basket. I was actually surprised to have such a big one. Many city strollers do not have that much capacity, which is much frustrated for a shopping addict like moi...
The straps are also very resistant so your little one would not think to run away. It is ok when they are babies but when you have a cheeky toddler, it is a very useful feature. You have to be strong to get out!
So Effortless to Fold!
Do you know THE thing I hate when I buy a new product? When you have to read a long list of instructions before starting to use it. I get bored and end up giving up even before starting. Or I ask Grumpy Boyfriend and he sorts it out for me!
Not such an issue with the iCandy Raspberry. Easy to fold/unfold by pressing the buttons on the side. It was a bit stiff the first time around but I am now an expert.
Simple et voilà, the buggy is packed to go on any adventures.
Hanging out at the airport? It is also freestanding when folded!
Two Versions with The Handle
Now, if you are a maman in the city, you know how awkward and difficile it can sometimes be to use public transports without feeling like you are using too much space for you and le bébé, right?
Well, it is not the case with the iCandy Raspberry! I love the way you can lower down the handle so that you can take less space on the bus!
Plus, with it interchangeable canopy, you can start having your little one facing forward and change it later on! Baba does not need to look at me now but it is cool to know that I have the option if I want to.
And if your child falls asleep, no need to make a fuss. The set gets down so nicely!
Such a Smooth Ride!
Riding the iCandy Raspberry is a dream come true. I thought my old buggy was fab, but this is something else! Because of its 4 wheels independent suspension with new innovative tyres, it feels really smooth. The all-around suspension makes your journey more enjoyable.
It can sometimes be tricky to travel in town and this is really helping parents having the greatest journey possible.
Going for a walk with Baba in the iCandy Raspberry is fast, silent and not too sporty. Because you don’t want to struggle or feel like you are doing a workout while out and about!
A Super Light Stroller for a Minimal Effort
While writing this review, I reckon I wanted to use the word ‘easy’ a dozen times! I think it sums up très bien what I make of it. To me, the iCandy Raspberry is a fab urban stroller for mamans always on the go!
It is so light you can carry it with ease, especially if you are using a lot of public transports. Riding it or folding does not involve too much energy.
It is stylish and yet super effective to walk in town and be as quick as you need!
iCandy Raspberry Review – Le verdict
The iCandy Raspberry is a very beautiful city stroller. With its very polished look and key features, it will become a great ally for any parents on the go.
We love the fact that you can have your little one more or less close to you with the adjustable handle. Plus the stroller has some cool details such as a zipped pocket at the back so that I can put my phone without smashing it on the floor (it happened once with our old buggy, oops!).
Whatever you are up to, it will make your journey fun and stylish! Robust but also light so that you can travel with it everywhere, have some fun and go shopping now with its large basket!
We really enjoyed using it while spending a fabulous family day out at Legoland Windsor®: it was fast to ride through the crowd and Baba was comfy at all times.
The iCandy Raspberry is aimed at parents in cities, but it is actually a fab companion to have when you travel abroad! Thanks to its fab folding system, you can be quick in queues while visiting places. And it multi-positioning means your little one can be comfy at all times, whatever they are up to!
It was such a great stroller to have for the holidays!
If you are living in an urban area or looking for a buggy to travel, the iCandy Raspberry is a good option!
