Top 5 dolls’ prams and pushchairs
Our favourite dolls’ prams and pushchairs around now
Why buy one?
Buying a pushchair or pram for your child’s doll or teddy is giving them so much more than a set of wheels. It can inspire imaginative play, encourage exercise and be useful for learning social skills by imitating adult behaviour. Learning to nurture and look after their dolls is essential for a child’s development, too.
What to spend
You can spend anything from £10 to over £300 for a replica of a vintage-style carriage pram, but look for something the simpler the better for younger children.
What to look for
Durability is a must, as it will get bashed around, and try out a cheaper model first to see whether it engages your child, before splashing out on something pricier. A pushchair that can be folded for easier storage could be a good idea too!
