The Mothercare Pick and Mix is an ‘interesting concept. Take a lightweight pushchair frame Â£39.99, in a bare basic black, and then offer a selection of 4 wrappers to add on to it (Â£20), either in pink, blue, or green, or the rather jarring multi-coloured option. It also includes a fairly average sized shopping basket plus there’s the option of purchasing an extra hood so that you can mix things up a little when the mood takes you. Eg, buy a pink wrapper and then buy an additional green hood for Â£10.
Having a second lightweight stroller for when you go travelling is quite handy. After lugging our Quinny Buzz to the US, much as I loved all the admiring stares and demands to know where we brought it, if your pushchair isn’t lightweight when you travel..you feel weighed down. So we now also own the highly rated Mamas and Papas Nipi.
Do I like the Mothercare Pick and Mix? I find the multi-coloured wrapper a bit too lairy for my tastes (and you know I love bright) and I think the pushchairs look best when they are literally mixed and matched as opposed to just one colour as shown in the pic.
