‘iCandy Apple’ is an amazingly adaptable, sturdy and well designed pushchair, designed and manufactured by the company SCS London.
iCandy’s unusual spelling should first be noted – ‘iCandy – it’s not a ‘typo’ on our behalf – promise! So, iCandy is a UK company based in Hertfordshire. They are a division of SCS London who also sell products under the brand name ‘Little Shield’.
iCandy have a non internet policy in place, which makes it impossible to buy any iCandy product via an e-commerce web site, but in certain circumstances they may allow mail order sales. The iCandy policy makes it very difficult for customers who do not live near an iCandy stockist, and to make it worse many iCandy stockists often do not have stocks of iCandy products!
However, none of this should put you off of the iCandy Apple. The ‘iCandy Apple’ is simply one of the most adaptable pushchairs on the market – and it looks fun and funky. With Apple only coming in black, this allows you to add any of the fun coloured liners, footmuffs and parasols to tailor your own look!
The “iCandy Apple” is sold as a single pushchair but should you wish, you can convert Apple into a twin pushchair called an Apple/Pear by using the optional accessory pack called a Pip – very original we know! Additionally, you can convert the iCandy Apple to a pram by the use of an optional carrycot or to a travel system with the addition of the Maxi-Cosi CabrioFix.
To un-complicate this very versatile product, we’ll put iCandy Apple into its possible modes.
iCandy Apple’s Chassis…
The iCandy Apple is a dynamic product, which allows itself to adapt to suit your requirements and lifestyle.
The ‘iCandy Apple’ comes with the choice of plastic, twin front wheels called the ‘Stroller’ model, which is intended for parents who are city based only, or you have the option of a single larger front wheel, called the ‘Jogger’ model. The iCandy Apple ‘Jogger’ wheel is designed for parents who go ‘off road’ more often – so that’s any terrain rougher than parks and grass. Whichever version you choose, the Apple’s wheels can be ‘locked-off’ for travelling over rougher ground. Both modes of iCandy Apple’s wheel are suitable for the city, and can be made to swivel for easy manoeuvring.
The Apple has large, pneumatic rear wheels, and they can be removed simply by lifting a tab located by the suspension unit, located on the rear axle. The Apple also boasts excellent sprung suspension, reflective trim and an easy to operate rear wheel brake – you simply lift the brake bar, located on the rear axle of Apple; and lift to release Apple’s break.
The iCandy Apple is a very adaptable product, which just keeps on surprising us with the ways it can cater for almost everyone! In total the iCandy Apple has seven different handle heights – to make pushing Apple comfortable for people of many heights. To locate a new height, simply squeeze the trigger located at the top of Apple’s soft grip handle.
One of iCandy Apple’s little gimmicks is the way it folds. By squeezing the same trigger located on Apple’s handle bar, the lightweight aluminium chassis can be folded; simply depress the secondary lock button, and slide the handle into the internally sprung locking system in one positive action. The iCandy Apple will then fold, and handily, the chassis can free stand for easy storage.
Underneath the iCandy Apple there is a very generously sized shopping basket, and located in the basket is a rain cover and pump for the pneumatic rear tyres – which is all included in the price!
The iCandy Apple as a Pushchair…
The iCandy Apple comes complete with a huge from birth seat which is very deep. The leg-rest, which is an integral part of the seat, is fully adjustable and on the rear of Apple’s seat is a zipped pocket - ideal for mobile and keys.
iCandy Apple’s pushchair is adaptable too – you have the option of facing Apple’s seat to mum or away from mum, and can be positioned in a flat, semi-flat or upright position. To do this, all you have to do is squeeze the buttons located at the side of the iCandy Apple’s seat unit, and relocate the seat into which ever position you prefer – it couldn’t be easier!
The Apple also comes with a large adjustable hood and the hood also boasts side viewing panels, so you can always keep an eye on little one.
iCandy Apple as a Travel System…
The Apple, like all iCandy products, is generally considered fantastic value, as Apple includes some very important essentials in the price. Besides the rain cover, and tyre pump, the iCandyApple comes complete with travel system adapters onto which a Maxi- Cosi Cabriofix infant carrier can be attached.
Transforming iCandy Apple into a travel system couldn’t be easier; you simply push the free adapters into the pushchair seat housings - they will lock into position with a reassuring ‘click’. Then, you slide the infant carrier (the Maxi-Cosi CabrioFix) onto the adaptors. Then to remove the infant carrier from Apple’s chassis, simply squeeze the buttons on the side of the CabrioFix and lift. The Apple’s adapters can be unlocked and removed simply by squeezing the button located at the side of each adaptor – easy!
As a travel system, iCandy Apple provides parents with the ease and convenience of being able to grab CabrioFix out of the car, and ‘quick-drop’ it onto Apple’s chassis for a quick get away!
iCandy Apple as a Pram…
For parents who prefer their little one laying totally flat from birth, and like the idea of a traditional carrycot, but want it on a modern-style chassis, then the optional iCandy Apple carrycot would be ideal.
The carrycot slips onto the Apple chassis in a similar way to the infant carrier - except you will not need any adaptors, as the carrycot comes with an inbuilt bayonet which just slips into the mounting.
The Apple carrycot is a little larger than usual carrycots; and when not in use, it can be folded down for easy storage. The carrycot also includes a washable liner and comes complete with mattress. The hood is adjustable on the carrycot, which also boasts reflective trim for extra safety. Handily, a rain cover is included for the Apple carrycot for use on wet or windy days.
iCandy Apple as a Twin Pushchair – the Apple/Pear…
As time goes by, you may want to increase the size of your family, and at this point iCandy Apple can be converted to the twin pushchair Apple/Pear by using the well suitably named, Pip converter!
The Pip converter includes a sub-frame, two smaller seats and a new set of heavier front wheels designed especially for twin mode.
With the sub-frame attached you can - if you wish - convert the new smaller seats to mini carrycots with the aid of the optional carrycot fabrics. You can also convert the iCandy Apple/Pear to a travel system with the addition of optional car seat adaptors.
The number of combinations available to the user in this mode is incredible! The possible items include: one or two car seats, the choice of one mini carrycot or carrycots combined with one seat or seats. Similar to the iCandy Apple seats, each seat and carrycot can be put into various positions, including facing forward and facing rearwards.
Folding the chassis is as equally easy as the single iCandy Apple. To fold the Apple/Pear you simply remove whichever tops you are using, and then remove the fully foldable sub-frame from the main pushchair chassis.
Our view… is that the ‘iCandy Apple’ is certainly both adaptable, versatile and a great choice for many parents.
There are just three negatives; the first is that the Apple is quite heavy when everything is attached – and this is caused by the many separate components which come together to form the iCandy as a whole. Secondly, some people really find the folding mechanism very difficult, as it does take a ‘knack’ to fold it smoothly. Lastly, it is a bit of a pain having to take everything off the chassis before folding, but that is something you have compromise with as the positive is that the separate pushchair seat unit allows you to rear and forward face the pushchair.
Overall though the iCandyApple has lots of plus points which clearly many parents will love!
