Silver Cross Sleepover

Charlotte Jones loves her Silver Cross Sleepover because…”We have had it for over 18 months and my daughter still uses it as a pram. I would certainly recommend it.”

Another MFM reader, Toni-Marie Verrier loves her Sleepover so much she still has it, despite not having any children that can fit in it anymore! “I can’t bring myself to part with my Silver Cross Sleepover Classic, it is the best pram in the whole wide world!”

There’s a choice of two types of chassis (buggy frame) with the Sleepover – the ‘Classic‘ Toni-Marie loves and the modern-looking ‘Linear‘. Read our reviews of the Silver Cross Linear Sleepover and Silver Cross Classic Sleepover to see which would suit you. The Sleepover can also become a travel system.

This bright green Surf looks fab at the beach

Silver Cross Surf

Ailish Harford loves her Silver Cross Surf because…”I get tons of compliments about it. This is my daughter Emily with her new baby sister Lauren on a trip to the seaside. When I was pregnant I couldn’t stop looking at the Surf and had a fab surprise when my employers handed it to me at my baby shower as their present to me! I was at a recent baby fair in Dublin and five different people asked me for my opinion about the Surf. I would highly recommend it to anyone – I can’t fault it.”

Another MFM mum, Natalie Underwood, loves the Surf because of how snug the nest is. “Mason, 4 months, loves to relax in his Surf after a long day at the park. The Surf is the best pram and the baby nest is so snug. There is also no need for a carrycot.”

MFM mum Amy Hull agrees, “I love the Silver Cross Surf because it is so easy to push, even when off-road.”

MFM adores this gorgeous image of Patience and her much-loved Balmoral

Silver Cross Balmoral

Elle Dawn Crawforth loves her Silver Cross Balmoral because…”My daughter Patience can use it right up to the age of 3 (she is now 18 months). Patience loves to sleep in her Balmoral and watch Peppa Pig from it and she likes to sit in it during snack times. It is the best pram ever and it makes Patience smile whenever she is sat in it. I think everyone should have one, because they are so good.”

The Silver Cross Balmoral is part of Silver Cross’ Heritage collection.

The Balmoral was also a feature of the Brits 2010, when Lily Allen’s backing dancers used Silver Cross Balmoral buggies during her performance. They were then auctioned off for charity, with all the proceeds going to the War Child charity.
