Gone are the days when pushchairs were basic and simple and seen as a mode of transport to get your child from A to B with ease. Now, thanks to clever engineering and scientific advances, pushchairs are luxurious and ground-breaking for parent and child. To many, they are fashion statements too.
It's all about the fabrics at the moment, whether it be the lightest, coolest, warmest, softest - there's a plethora of new fabrics out there dressing out strollers, prams and pushchairs in style.
Pushchair designers are boldly stepping where no one has before and releasing 'firsts' when it comes to their fabrics, such as the woven fabric hood of the new 2017 model of the UPPAbaby Vista.
We've already mentioned the Quinny Yezz air's striking resemblance to a trainer. Its seat is made of a unique stretch mesh fabric so your baby can lounge almost as if it was in the comfort of a hammock.
There are reversible fabrics that can warm in winter and cool in summer; such as those seen on the egg Stroller reversible fur seat liner.
Not to mention the trend in 3D fabrics that we have seen on the gb Maris Day Dream edition which features a silky ruffled hood. There's also the Cybex Birds of Paradise collection which features exotic parrots with fun tails that flap in the wind as you stroll.
Whether it's scientific advances or fashion trends, we are set for a fabric flavoured treat in the pushchair world in 2017.
