In our new series, Pram Adventures, we put prams to the ultimate test on the unforgiving pavements of Malta.
Choosing your pram is a big decision, not only will it be the main mode of transport for your little one for their first years, but damnnn they expensive. You don’t want to re-mortgage your house only to buy something that doesn’t work for your family.
Island Bébé’s Pram Adventures series is here to help take a bit of the guesswork out of choosing your pram. We’ll test drive what’s available on the island and report back with our verdict, as well as the local stockists.
But we’re not going to take a pleasant stroll down Sliema promenade. Oh no, that would be cheating. The reality of walking with a pram in Malta is more like this:
So, as you can see, a glossy online recommendation from a UK-based parent with their pathetic smooth pavements and excessively wide walkways is useless to us. This is Malta, we’re made of tougher stuff – and our prams should be too.
Stay tuned for our upcoming pram adventures as we test them on their ability to stop me from losing my shit every 5 minutes, with specific focus on agility, weight, width, robustness, storage space, and comfort. Rest up, my friends, for this is not for the faint of heart.
A day may come when the courage of men fails… but it is not THIS day.
