iCandy launches the new Peach 7 pushchair – see what's new
The seventh generation of iCandy's bestselling buggy has softer suspension, a new "head hugger", an integrated ride-on board and numerous other improvements
The popular iCandy Peach pushchair has just been launched in its seventh generation and there are plenty of new additions and improvements to look out for. The new iCandy Peach 7 is still the same pushchair that so many parents know and love, but there's been a lot of fine-tuning to make it more comfortable and functional than ever, for parent and child.
What's new with the iCandy Peach 7?
We've taken our first look at the iCandy Peach 7, and while there is a whole host of little details and additions, a few key things stood out for us.
An integrated ride-on board – New to the Peach 7 is the addition of a built-in ride-on board, which allows an older toddler to hop on and stand between the seat and handlebar, without the need for any added accessories. This feature is already famous part of the iCandy Orange, and has now been adapted for the Peach 7 too.
The 'Pip-Zip' bag – A fun and innovative addition to the iCandy Peach 7 is a removable rear seat pocket. While plenty of buggies have a little zip compartment on the back of the seat, this one is designed to be easily removed so you can pop it off and take it with you if you need to park or store your buggy, ensuring all valuables are kept safe and sound. This extra storage solution is in addition to the Peach's generous storage basket with its 10kg capacity.
Improved seat and harness – Not only is the seat now 20mm longer, it's also more padded with a new adjustable head hugger to help support your baby or toddler's head and shoulders. The harness has also been redesigned and is what iCandy calls an "easy slide pop up harness" that makes fastening your child in easier than before.
Carrycot features – the iCandy Peach 7 carrycot is suitable for permanent overnight sleeping which could mean you don't need to buy a separate crib or Moses basket. The apron that fastens on top has been reinforced and has a bigger storm flap for extra protection in changing weather. There's also an extendable canopy on the hood for sunny days.
Better suspension – The iCandy Peach 7 promises "even softer suspension than its predecessors" thanks to its all-purpose PU tyres with increased tread, grip, and central beading. The handlebar has also been redesigned to be more ergonomic, which the brand claims will help parents to navigate kerbs and bumps with ease.
What age is the iCandy Peach 7 suitable for?
The iCandy Peach 7 is suitable from birth with the use of the carrycot, which comes as part of the main package. You can switch to the seat unit at around 6 months. There are also adapters available to convert it into a travel system, and the pushchair is compatible with most Maxi-Cosi, Cybex, BeSafe and Kiddy Evo infant car seats, as well as the Joie iGemm and Nuna Pipa. You can check the full list on the iCandy website.
How much does the iCandy Peach 7 cost?
The iCandy Peach 7 retails at £1,099 for a package that includes the carrycot, seat unit, chassis, removable ‘Pip-Zip’ bag, car seat adaptors and elevator adaptors. It's available in 5 colours at launch: Black, Dark grey, Light grey, Truffle and Olive Green. If you're attending The Baby Show at Excel London this weekend you can come and see it for yourself, and test it out on the MadeForMums Buggy Testing Track.
