Great looking pram
I chose to buy the icandy in royal blue and tan after seeing my sister’s (she purchased the peacock and black version). The navy and tan with chrome is so eye catching and I receive many compliments when out and about. I like how compact the frame is - a lot of my friends have striders or steel craft prams and I’ve noticed the bases are so big and cumbersome. I purchased adapters and found it was great to use with our maxicosi mica capsule. The peach is very high quality, just a couple of things that stop me from giving 5 stars - the hood on th...e seat doesn’t quite extend down far enough for The Australian sun which means you’ve usually got to put a wrap or something over the top when bub is laid back sleeping. The second thing is it doesn’t lay overly flat when you recline the seat. All In all though it is a fantastic pram and has great steering/manoeuvrability. We also have the bassinet so when baby 2 comes along the pram doubles up.

Super stylish but heavy and small
Loved the prams looks and I always got complimented how amazing it looked! But it was very heavy to haul in and out of the car and took up a lot of space. I bought the 2nd seat and converter but my son (2.5 at the time) was far too tall to be able to use the second seat so I ended up selling it.
It is not a single fold you have to remove seat to put it in the car which took a little extra time.
Overall it was great quality and comfortable for bub just a bit on the shorter side and heavy.
Terribly over priced
The pram looks great, maneuvers well and relatively easy the fold. The seat is short, son is 1 and sadly is too long, outgrowing the pram. The biggest issue is the 5 point belt buckle, it snapped. I tried to get a replacement through the icandy site, however the claim for product recalls of a select batch do not apply and i purchased it in Australia. My batch number is way different, yet i have a faulty/broken buckle. I can't use the thing without a working buckle. Check your belt buckle people, this is a serious flaw. Though it may be discontinued, the models are floating around, beware.
It is easier than my previous one to maneuver. It is so smooth to push. It does not need too much power to control it. It is two parts. It is easy to fold but it will takes more space to storage. And it is a little bit heavy. It means you will use more energy to carry it.
Easy to use pram
I bought this to replace my jogger pram and am so happy I did. Accessories are easy to find and fit. Folds easily, feels sturdy yet is light and can be pushed with one hand. My very tall 3 year old still fits in it. Storage basket is adequate, it could be bigger. Quite large when folded, it takes up a lot of room in the boot. Sometimes when unfolding the pram, one of the wheels gets caught in the basket, which is a pain.
Poor build quality
The Icandy we purchased did do the job as advertised however we found the build quality was terrible. After unboxing we found 2 of the three inner tubes were faulty around the valve and we had to purchase new tubes. I’m not sure if we brought a lemon but it also pulled to the left when pushing which gets irritating. The other thing we found annoying was the shear number of adaptors required. Some to raise the seat, some for the maxi cosi capsule. I had a mecano set as a kid with less parts. It is also heavy and having two parts takes up more space than a single collapsibl unit.
Excellent pram, has lasted well.
The moment I lay eyes on this pram I wanted it. I didn't have kids at that point, but as soon as I found out I was pregnant I was trying to get my hands on one of these.
We've had it since 2012, and mostly it hasn't disappointed.
The frame is incredibly thick and sturdy and doesn't flex whilst pushing as much as some other prams I've tried. This does make it a little heavier, but the two-piece fold is compact and I've been able to fit it in the back of a Toyota Yaris (in stroller mode, not with the carrycot) and a Honda Jazz with no trouble.... I was worried most about the wheels. I do a lot of walking on poorly maintained footpaths and they scuffed up very quickly. Initially i thought I'd be lucky if they lasted a year, but they're still going strong, even if the tires are very pitted and worn. The carrycot was wonderful when the kids were tiny, though it could be a little more spacious. The seat unit is fabulous. Both my 2 year old and 5 year old can still fit in it. The fabrics have also held up well. One thing, though, is that it would be better if there was a fold down flap in the hood for shielding bub from the sun when reclined. I bought the palm shade in the hope that it would serve a similar function with the hood part attached, but it didn't. Changing the height of the straps is my least favourite thing about this pram. Trying to contort my hand and get it up the limited space in back of the seat and then push the straps (and hard plastic clips) through the slots in the hard plastic backing isn't something I found easy or pleasant. Overall, though, it's sturdy, convenient and reliable, and I'm glad we spent the extra money to get it.
As a first time father, I was concerned about finding a good pusher. My fears were allayed once i laid eyes upon this beauty. Easy to use with one hand for when you are wrestling with a restless child, and lighter than most on the market. Cannot recommend highly enough
The best pram you'll ever own!!!
We bought this pram so we didnt we didnt have to buy a new car!! The pram base folds up nearly flat amd so small that it fits easily into a hatchback boot!! To top off this exceptionally built pram the maneuverability is amazing!!! So easy to move through people traffic and through aisles at the supermarket.
Best double pram
Fantastic pram- I bought this as I have a newborn and a 2 year old. It is so easy to maneuver, easy to assemble and glides along so nicely. It is stable and feels solid without being heavy and bulky. I like that the wheels are solid so you don't have to worry about pumping the tyres. It is easy to wash as you can throw the liners etc in the washing machine. Definitely recommend this pram as a single or a double.
Great pram for all life throws at you!
A great pram with lots of options for one or two children. It's compact enough to use as a 'walking' cot inside when your baby is small yet built well enough to withstand dirt tracks and life on a farm. Fits everywhere and handles incredibly well, even with twins!
- Compact and easy to steer yet tough enough for country living.
- Flexible options for different aged children and twins; forward and reverse facing seat for one child.
- Easy to fold, light to lift and fits in boot and behind front seats of family car.
- Carrycot approved for overnight sleeping meaning you don't need to pack a cot for the first 5-6 months.
- New model accessories such as the 2016 carrycot fits the Peach Blossom 2.
Icandy wins my heart
I bought a cheap pram as I couldn't see the point in forking out all this money on something that I would only have to use for a few years if that. I struggled with my cheap pram finally gave in and bought an Icandy peach. Best decision I ever made! it handles well it is easy to collapse and put in the car. it is super sturdy and it looks great!!!
Good stroller - HORRIBLE customer service.
I spoke with Jose over the phone today and I honestly cannot believe the manner in which he spoke with me.
Firstly , he accused my wife of misunderstanding the product colour. Next he argued with me about what black looks like. He was rude and obnoxious. DO NOT BUY.
Confused. Peach2 vs Rasberry.
Oops this should be in "Ask questions" but anyway.....
Bubs is now 5 months old and we have pretty much used his iCandy peach2 everyday, Its so easy to push and maneuver and I do absolutely love it. My only issue is we havent had the opportunity to use the main seat yet. Bubs has always been in his unity capsule; from home, in the car to being attached to the iCandy chasis.
I just wanted to know whether other mums have had the same dilemma im having now and what did they do? Our daily ritual is starting to annoy me (note if i had known our e...
After two years of use
It's my second review of this product, gave less stars this time.
After two years of use I wish I wouldn't get this pram it's became heavy, dificult to monuver it's not smooth going anymore, the hood is very nosy to open or close wakes my child every time if in use, difficult to keep clean too the material is not easy to clean.
The perfect pram!
We have owned this pram for 19 months and use it every day! Its great for long walks too!
Using the Peach without the Blossom attachment was wonderful. So easy to move around and fantastic to be able to add the capsule.
We recently have needed the 2nd lower seat, its fantastic. We can fit through nearly any door.and dont have any trouble getting around. I wish wecould upgrade to the Peach 3. But this pram is perfect. I wouldn't get any other!
We had a problem with the basket on the bottom breaking and iCandy were on it right away and sent us a brand new one to replace. Great quick service.
Purchased the iCandy in 2013 for our first child thinking that we might have a second in quick succession and therefore need a double pram. I do a lot of walking and not much driving so it's been a really good option for us. Runs smoothly, goes through the rough park terrain really easily and manoeuvres neatly. We've recently had our second child and have been really pleased with the iCandy being able to accommodate both children without being wide as with the side by side prams - having said that I haven't had cause to pack it in the car which might not be much fun!
All in all would highly reccommend iCandy Peach/Blossom.
I always read these reviews, so I thought I should write one.
We have had our iCandy for almost a year now. It is brilliant. It does everything.
4 or 5 mornings a week I walk the baby with two Great Danes and we live in the country. We go down dirt roads and over paddocks and the pram handles it brilliantly. It goes to town as well and is incredibly stylish. It has room for everything. All in all it has been a great purchase and would recommend it to anyone.
Been using my iCandy Peach 2 for 3 months and loving it, very easy to manoeuvre, looks stylish, very comfortable for my baby, big space if you are a shopper, very durable. Carrier seems to move a bit if you are travelling off road which does not bother me b/c most of the babies love rocking but better to put a note here. i highly recommend this stroller to any mother or mother to be.

Best pram ever!!!
As I was about to have my second child I started to look at getting a double pram as my first child was a 'runner'. The idea of going out with two children terrified me . I had never really heard of this pram until a sales assistant pointed it out. It ticked all my boxes. While I was looking at it, my little boy ran off and out of the store. I ordered it straight away!
It is comfortable for the children, easy to assemble and stack in the boot, light to push even with two children and has good storage. I have used it as a double every day for...two years. I am so happy with this product. My only criticism would be the hood click is REALLY loud and after two years the foam on the handles split and came off. Durable, comfortable, easy to push Hood clicks, foam splits

Questions & Answers
So we have the limited edition peach. . and I love my pram . but we going to have another bub . . so we'll have a 14 month and a newborn. . .i'm concerned with the converter to accommodate two. . .has anyone got this yet??
i have been told that you have to take the older one out before taking the younger one. . which is just not feasable for me. . . and i've also been told that they can tip when there's 2?
I'm concerned and confused . . .should i get another pram?
Sorry I'm probably a bit late to help you but perhaps my response might help others. I have been using the Peach in double mode now for about 9 months. It has fared better than expected! I don't need to take the top seat off to get the lower child in and out of the back - there is plenty of room. Also I haven't had any problems with stability - it steers really well and seems sturdy even on slightly rough ground. The main drawbacks of double mode are:
1) There are so many separate pieces to bring (chassis, 2 seats, 2 adaptors, plus any accessories) and it therefore takes a long time to fold it up and down. This can be a real drag when you just want to pop into the shops.
2) The lower child's seat and feet take up pretty much the whole basket space. Which is annoying because with two kids you have twice as much stuff to bring.
But those are the only issues and overall I'm very happy with my choice. It's functioning really well even after 2.5 years and still looks practically new.
Do not buy this pram - we have spent a fortune on the icandy peach blossum which broke after we bought the $400 conversion kit. Icandy are refusing to fix it as they have said that we caused it by not closing it correctly - right as if we didnt know how to close it after owning it for 2 years with our first child.
Hhozay, how do u put the drink holder on inside of side handle? Can't figure it out. I don't want it to bash into doorways nor do I want drink holder on top handle as I hang my bag off hooks there.
Hi Gael, are you having trouble finding a spot for it on the side handle? If so, I'm not sure about the solution as I only have the iCandy Peach (mistakenly posted under Peach Blossom). Also I've just realised that if the seat is facing frontwards (once baby is older) you might run out of space again. However, if you do have the space, I just fit the drink holder the same way as when it's on the outside - you just have to re-angle the cup holder so it's not tilting over. I hope that helps in some way...
Hi, we have an Icandy peach and have been very impressed with it to date. We're now expecting no 2 and are looking at purchasing the blossom converter kit - is this worth the money? It looks fairly small and I'm wondering how long it will last size wise? Thanks. KS
