Pram, Stroller, Buggy, Pushchair. What’s the difference?

We asked our social media community which word they typically use, and the results were overwhelmingly in favour of “pram”. 

Our Instagram community breakdown looked like:

• 72% say pram
• 12% say stroller
• 7% say buggy or pushchair

And Facebook was almost identical:

• 77% say pram
• 10% say stroller
• 7% pushchair
• 4% buggy

I always said pram up until a few years ago when I started working for Edwards & Co, then it was stroller. Even now, I find myself swapping between the two when I’m asking my little one to jump into the [insert word here]!

But it doesn’t end there

Up until this point, we assumed everyone was talking about the Oscar stroller – our three-wheel, all-terrain buggy (oops – there’s a new word!) Most people call this type of stroller a pram.

But then we asked, “what would you call the Otto? Is this a pram, too?”

Short answer, nope! This is a stroller.

 

The Otto is our compact/travel stroller that would be equivalent to an “umbrella stroller” (way more features of course, and you wouldn’t be throwing the Otto away after your holiday!)

I hope we haven’t lost you with all the jargon; rest assured you can call your pram whatever you want, and we’ll probably understand what you’re talking about.

What on earth is a Travel System?

A Travel System is a term we don’t really use anymore at Edwards & Co, we used to though. This is typically a stroller (I mean pram...) that can have a Carry Cot or Capsule attached to it.

A Carry Cot is the bassinet attachment for your pram.

You can click your Oscar Carry Cot directly into the Oscar stroller, without needing any adapters. If you want to click a capsule into your Oscar stroller, you will need to purchase the adapter.
