Today I wanted to talk about taking your pram all terrain. Now I don’t mean pushing it through sand dunes or anything crazy. Let’s keep it real. Sometimes a simple walk at the park can be difficult with the wrong pram. Heavy four wheeled prams can limit your options for outdoor activities and who wants that.
Thankfully, its 2014 and we have come a long way. One of the better leaps in technology for prams has been this little beauty -
The three wheel pram. Heaven. Notice the large wheels which mean you can take the pram on most terrains no problem. Now the pram pictured in a Valco Tri Pram which actually has air filled tyres which provides suspension ensuring bubs has a smooth ride.
Weight is another plus with this one. It’s super light. No one needs to be pushing heavy prams these days, especially with options like the Valco readily available and affordable.
Jogging is made so much easier with these types of prams. Gone are the days of trying to job with a heavy and cumbersome pram. Having to choose your route carefully to avoid rough surfaces and bundling the kids in blankets so they didnt get jostled around to much. Sounds hideously difficult and unnecessary. Like running with a shopping cart.
Now days, many a mum and bub can be seen jogging around neighborhoods all over the world thanks to the three wheel prams.
Jogging isn’t the only benefit an all terrain pram offers. Even a walk to the local park in made easier. Ever tried to wheel a pram on thick grass? It’s not easy.
Once a month hoards of people descend on our local park looking for something they just cant get at the mall. There is a lot of cool stuff there but I am getting off topic! The point is that the markets are held on a big grassed area which must be a nightmare for people with four wheeled prams. No thanks.
Market days, sports events, dirt walking tracks in national parks. None of these needs to be off limits to your and your bub. As long as you choose the right pram for the terrain. Now the Valco is a good start but there are literally hundreds of options out there. Have a think about what type of surfaces you spend time walking on and consider that carefully when choosing your pram.
