At our Mothercare Pushchair Party event this month, we were keen to glean an insight into what our readers and favourite bloggers look for when it comes to buying a pushchair. Our roving reporter Lauren caught up with some of our favourite bloggers at the Pushchair Party and asked them which 3 features they looked for when buying a stroller, and we also ran a Twitter poll to ask our audience. Our readers favourited ease of opening / folding as their most popular feature, with the majority purchasing from a retailer such as Mothercare, with 40% spending between £200 and £500 per buggy. Check out our in-depth results below, and our video to see what the parenting world celebs had to say on the matter!
