Lightweight, compact and manoeuvrable the unveiled iCandy Raspberry pushchair will keep you on the move
The Raspberry is iCandy’s new state-of-the-art lightweight, freestanding compact-fold stroller. Hopping on and off buses, from cafés to cabs, up kerbs and through the London underground, with its agile chassis, ease of fold and innovative, hidden spacious storage capsule, the quick and easy pushchair is the smart choice for urban adventures with your new born – or toddler. Weighing an astonishing 6.6KG, the Raspberry is one of the lightest luxury pushchairs on the market and will be sure to keep you on the move.
The latest addition to the iCandy range has been conceived from consumer feedback and given life by iCandy’s design team. Part of the design brief was to ensure comfort; the seat unit is luxuriously soft with added cushioning for a comfortable ride, made from a breathable, water resistant fabric for ease of cleaning. Already recognised for its pioneering design, the Raspberry has received various awards, including the international Red Dot: Design 2014 award earlier this year.
In a recent survey, a great 56% of parents have said they plan to travel abroad with their pushchair this summer and 48% of parents admitted that a lightweight compact ‘urban pushchair’ would encourage them to visit city areas more often. iCandy have created the perfect solution to provide on-the-go parents with confidence when travelling abroad and in cities. The Raspberry ensures families enjoy life to the maximum – lightweight, compact and manoeuvrable, the award-winning Raspberry keeps you on the move and is suitable for children weighing up to 25kg.
The seat unit is highly adaptable, the option of a lie-flat position allows the stroller to be used from birth, as well as parent or world facing. The 3-position reclining seat adjusts to suit the mood of your infant or toddler. The stroller will fold with the seat unit in situ or it can be removed to make storage of the Raspberry even more compact. The innovative seat folds like a clam shell protecting the seat unit from muddy wheels when stored. When folded the Raspberry is compact and freestanding making it easy to fold, carry and store.
Parents take pride in the luxurious look of an iCandy, but it’s in the handling where iCandy pushchairs excel. Styled to perfection, the Raspberry comes with a state-of-the-art wheel design to complement the innovative tyres with 4-wheel independent suspension, ensures smooth strolling for both parent and child no matter the surface or bumps in the road.
The chassis comes in two colours, a sleek matt black or natural brushed aluminium with the iCandy logo lasered into the frame for that perfect, lasting finish. To allow you to customise your Raspberry the hood is available in 7 fresh colour ways – Arctic Night, Atlantic, Lush, Beetle, Sunflower, Wisteria, Fuchsia.
What’s more, the quick and easy pushchair goes the extra mile: its unique iCandy accessories allow your Raspberry to grow with your little one. For newborns iCandy have created a fabulous Newborn Pod keeping your baby warm and comforted with a knitted outer fabric andluxury inner fleece lined double layer wrap. The design also makes it easy to take your baby in and out of the stroller, whether they are awake and wriggling or sound asleep. For the older child there is a larger footmuff with a non-slip base, Ripstop performance fabric on the outer lining and a cosy inner fleece lining to keep your little one warm and snug. iCandy know your child likes to have independence and movement so on the front there is a large fleece-lined pocket for the child to keep their hands warm or store their favourite toy.
