Babystyle Oyster Gem at the Harrogate Nursery Fair 2013
One of our favourite pushchairs at Harrogate, once again, was the Babystyle Oyster Gem. We really hope that we will see the Oyster Gem go into production in 2013, because it seems like an amazingly small pushchair with a neat fold, and lots of options.
If you look back at our 2012 photos from Harrogate, they will probably be useful to supplement these photos.
In essence the Babystyle Oyster Gem is a modular travel system. It is still in pre-production, however the plan is to have a chassis which can take a carrycot, a car seat and a choice of two seat units – one is the parent or forward facing seat for a younger baby or child, and the other seat forward faces for an older toddler. Examples of most of these phases can be seen in our photos. We love the bright colours of the Oyster Gem and the smart chrome chassis.
Our 4 year 5 month old (107cms tall) was co-opted in to help us with our photos. She was not having a good day but the lovely man from Babystyle appeared just at the right moment with a bowl of sweets for us to get at least one smile from her. It was too much to ask her to put the harness on, but it is very clear from our photos that the Oyster Gem has a HUGE seat – she has bags of room at either side, and her feet are very comfortably on the footrest without her knees being bent up. She has room under the hood too. This is a pushchair with a BIG seat!!
We can not wait to try out an Oyster Gem! It looks fabulous!
