Park Life and a Look at the Carnaby Acti-Cruise Stroller

We're so lucky to have a children's play park less than 5 minutes walk from our house. It's such a lovely park, it's a proper village park! We have to walk past a little farm to get there - you can buy eggs from the farm and the hens are so free range that you often find them hanging around outside strolling along the pavement. In fact, from Ethans bedroom I often see those crazy little hens just hanging out at the end of our road. It's so lovely, and I feel privileged and proud that we are fortunate enough to be able to bring Ethan up in an area as nice as this is. 

We spend so much time at the park - Ethan can't get enough. He adores the swings and he's just learning how to push his bum off of the top of the slide. We always take him to the park on his trike, which we brought him for his first birthday - it's one of his absolute favourite things. He gets so excited when he realises we're about to go out and about on it! He's one of those proper outdoor types! 

A while ago now we we're kindly asked to review the Carnaby Acti-cruise stroller (above) from Lollipop Lane. As you know we absolutely love our Cosatto Giggle travel system, so we don't have a stroller. But we agreed to give it a go as now that I'm back to work, Ethans Grandma (Adams Mum) has Ethan on a Friday and she needed a stroller to use with him on Fridays - so we thought this would be a good opportunity to find the right one for her. 

We've taken the stroller out quite a few times now and we feel we've really got to grips with it. Initially we found it a bit confusing to fold down, but quite honestly I think that's just because we were so used to travel systems. I like the stroller for the fact that it's obviously an all in one, so there's not different parts to build up like a travel system has. Lollipop Lane's Carnaby is visually gorgeous, it's smart but fun! I think it suits a little boy really well. This is the first time we've used a stroller so correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm sure the Carnaby has quite a lot of features for a stroller.. 

Features include:
A removable cup holder, rain cover and reversible padded seat liner 
  • 3 position back rest
  • 5 point harness
  • Removable arm rest
  • Adjustable foot rest
  • Foldable canopy with front shade visor
  • Window & zip storage pocket 
  • Handle grip made of soft, comfortable EVA foam
  • Large storage basket
  • Rear wheels with suspension & link brake
  • Front wheels with swivel & link brake
  • Removable, non- puncture, foam filled tyres
  • Safety lock
  • Free 1 year Manufactures Warranty
So as you can see - quite a lot of great features for a stroller! 

We found it easy to push and to lift into the car. And best of all Ethan seems more than comfortable in it which is obviously the most important factor! It now lives with Ethans Grandma (who is also a fan) and they use it out and about most Fridays! The Carnaby acti-cruise stroller is priced at £95 and is available to buy at lollipoplane.co.uk.
