Silver Cross Wayfarer

see 3 parent reviews

The Silver Cross Wayfarer is a continuation of the popular model from the seventies, but, of course, with improved functions and design. This stylish 2in1 stroller system features a chrome chassis and smaller-in-size, swivel wheels with suspension. The foldable carrycot is quite small internally. The reversible bucket-type seat can be swapped for an optional car seat.

The stroller set includes a rain cover, a cup holder, and a color set consisting of a seat liner, an apron, and a hood. The apron, the hood, and the bumper bar are shared between the carrycot and the seat unit - you need to attach it according to which component you are using. The hood of the newer models comes with an additional, massive pop-out sun visor for better protection against the sun. By swapping the set for a different color and adding various optional accessories, you can change the look of your Wayfarer. The Wayfarer was also released in premium editions (those come with a changing bag included), such as the Wayfarer Special Edition Eton Grey, the Wayfarer Special Edition Expedition, and the Wayfarer Special Edition Henley.

parents say thx^^
  • Big shopping basket
  • Reversible seat

This was my first pram, and I really liked it. My son slept well in both the bassinet and the seat. The seat unit can be parent- AND forward-facing. A big basket underneath. It was easy to put the seat unit on the chassis, and the pram was not too heavy, getting it in and out of the car.

The bassinet is too small, and the seat unit doesn't feature an extendable hood - which I was missing very much. Overall, it was not that easy to handle. It is not bad, but I have had better strollers.

  • Variability
  • Large shopping basket
  • Seat unit front- and parent-facing, and it can be easily switched with the baby inside
  • Footmuff
  • Adjustable handlebar
  • Extendable hood
  • Lightweight
  • Compact with quick folding
  • Can fit even in a small car trunk
  • Pushes effortlessly, one-hand manipulation
  • Locking feature
  • Adjustable straps
  • No wheel suspension (I don't feel it)
  • The wheels could be bigger, not suitable for much terrain
  • The hood does not have a mesh net, so I recommend buying a summer hood
  • The brake got stuck after the winter. We had to lubricate it - probably it is not well sealed as there were dirt and salt after winter

I am writing this review after a year of use. The stroller is an urban-type, not suitable for much terrain - due to its smaller wheels, it will not pass through (almost any kind of) stones. Sometimes I had a problem with it even in the snow. However, I like the variability; the bassinet has a foam insert that can be taken out and increase the space (e.g. for a footmuff during winter). The hood is large both for the bassinet and the seat unit. The chassis features a lot of plastic elements, so we will see how they last...
