Win a Maxi Rider AHR Easy Adjust Car Seat!
This month Strollers and Prams is giving away a Maxi Rider AHR Easy Adjust worth $529 AUD!
Suitable for children six months to approximately eight years the new Maxi Rider AHR from Britax Safe-n-Sound gives you an easy to use car seat solution. The new design is 30mm slimmer than the existing Maxi Rider AHR, meaning it's easier to install and configure with other seats across the back of the car. More importantly, the internal width hasn't been modified, so your bundle of joy will still have plenty of room in the generous seating area.
This competition is open to all Australian Residents until December 31st 2012
The Peg Perego Pliko Switch Compact has been reviewed!
If there's one pram feature parents seem to ask for more than anything else, it's the ability to have their child facing them. Following close behind would be to have a pram that folds in one piece, and which doesn't weigh a tonne. Unfortunately those three features can be frustratingly hard to find in the same pram.
The Pliko Switch, however, ticks all these boxes, and as Ally found out, also has a host of other desirable features such as a super hood and large, plush seat.

Britax comment on draft of new Child Restraints Standard
On the 13th of August, a draft of the new Child Restraint Standard was released by Standards Australia. This revision of the current standard has been long anticipated by proponents of the Isofix system, an alternative lower attachment system for car restraints which has long been available overseas and is considered easier to install and thus likely to reduce the high incidence of incorrect installation currently seen in Australia.
The new draft does in fact include the provision for isofix compatible car restraints to be sold in Australia, however this does not mean that seats sold overseas will automatically become legal to use in Australia. Whilst the current draft allows options for both rigid (ISOFIX) and flexible (LATCH) lower anchor points, Australian car seats will continue to require an upper tether strap, and will also require the option to use the car's seatbelt as the lower attachment as is currently the case.
Other changes in the draft which advocates of improved car restraints in Australia are sure to celebrate, include the addition of an extended rear facing category, a new category for harnessed forward facing restraints for children up to 8 - 10 years of age, and the testing and defining of child restraints suitable for babies who are premature or of low birth weight.
Britax, who design and manufacturer car seats for the Australian market under the brands of Safe-n-Sound and Steelcraft, have welcomed the first draft of the new Standard and plan to release restraints compatible with the new standard once the Standard has been approved for publication, which is expected to be early in 2013.
Cosatto Oh So Pretty lives up to its name
The new limited edition Swift Lite Supa Pushchair from Cosatto is called 'Oh So Pretty', which is apt, considering the gorgeously pretty flowers covering the entire stroller and hood.
As well as being drop dead gorgeous, the Swift Lite Supa Pushchair is sports some great features and comes with an impressive array of included extras such as a cosytoes, raincover, head hugger and nappy bag.
The Oh So Pretty will retail for £210.00 is now available for pre-order in the UK.
Bugaboo recall Australia
Bugaboo Australia have issued a recall of Cameleons sold between June 2010 and July 2012. The issue is a small one - the safety warning label is not permanently attached to the harness as required by the Australian standard. Affected owners should contact Bugaboo Australia to register for a replacement shoulder pad which will have the safety warning permanently attached.
Introducing the Steelcraft Strider Compact!
Steelcraft have just unveiled their latest product in the Strider range, the Strider Compact! Not surprisingly given the name, the main feature of this new pram is its reduced size and weight compared the Strider Plus. The width of the wheel base is now 7.5cm narrower, and the pram is 1.4kg lighter which will make a considerable difference to the manoeuvrability of this pram.
As well as the new size, the Strider Compact also has some great new features. The Strider Compact will now hold two infant carriers, one up the top, and one in the toddler seat position down below the main seat.
The main seat can also be adjusted up and down the frame to maximise the room available to the seat occupants in whichever setup the pram is being used.
The Strider Compact will retail for $799 plus $169 for the second seat. For more information visit the Strider Compact Website.
The Nuna Pepp has been reviewed!
Ally has just finished reviewing the Nuna Pepp - the tiny little stroller with great features and funky good looks. The Nuna has a short, flat 'book' fold (as opposed to a long, skinny umbrella fold) and is ideal for people who are short on space in the car or at home but still need a smooth and comfortable ride for their little one. Read Ally's review for more details!
phil&teds launch the sub4
This isn't one to take shopping at your favourite boutique, but then that's certainly not what this machine is designed for! Whilst any pram with three wheels might be called a jogger, it is fair to say that not all three wheeled prams should be jogged with.
The long anticipated phil&teds sub4, however, is designed for peak performance when running, jogging and power walking. It features a motion control hub, with full adjustable suspension and torsion control bars which help keep the wheels grounded and thus the ride for the passenger as smooth as possible. The aerocore seat provides further shock abosorption, and the hand controlled dual disk brakes allow brilliant control and safety.
The phil&teds sub4 will retail for $1079 AUD and can be pre-ordered from the phil&teds webshop now. For more information on this high peformance machine, visit the sub4 website.
