Hauck I'coo Plasma 7

This is a bruiser of a pushchair, the kind of baby buggy bought by first-time parents who want something that will last through the rest of the football team they’re planning to spawn. It’s built like a tank, and you certainly get the impression that it will serve several new occupants well.

However, that sturdiness and security comes at a price. It’s great for yomping across heathland or for cutting a swathe through the high street thong, but it’s much less fun when you’re trying to wrestle it onto the bus or into your car (and smaller cars needn’t even apply – it folds up willingly enough but it doesn’t seem to get much smaller). So long as you don’t need to fold it up and carry it too often, the Plasma 7 is easy to manoeuvre, with or without the front wheel locks, and the spring suspension system guarantees a smooth ride.

The seat is reversible so you can have baby facing you if you prefer – which is just as well, since the netting on the cover isn’t easy to see through. On the plus side, the design includes a crossbar at the front which is easy to grab for lifting up and down steps (dads in particular probably appreciate this).

The ThinkBaby verdict

A buggy that’s built to last and should see you through several new arrivals – so long as you don’t have to fold it up too often.
Performance: 3/5
Value: 3/5
