A couple of weeks ago Ailsa and I were invited by Cybex to go along to an event for the Birds of Paradise fashion collection for their Priam, at the gorgeous Eat Sleep Love baby boutique in London. I was very excited to see the range after hearing such great things and very excited to meet some fellow bloggers for the first time. So off Ailsa and I popped to London on the train, I took Ailsa in the baby carrier so that I could easily get around although by the end of the day my back was not thanking me for it. Ailsa was really well behaved for the journey and we managed two trains and 2 tubes there with no grumpiness from her at all!
Once we were there and had a refreshment we were given a demo of the Priam. The Priam itself is really stylish available with either a Chrome or Black Frame, the overall look of the Priam is very sophisticated. I just loved the one handed fold and the fact that you can use the Priam on the two back wheels, meaning you can easily bump it up a stair or two or move it around easier in smaller spaces of say a coffee shop or restaurant. The handle also adjusts to different heights which is perfect if the Priam will be used by people of varying heights. The handle also goes all the way down which is great for saving space if your out and about for a coffee.
The Cybex Priam comes with 2 seat options, the 2-in-1 light seat which can go from a carry cot for newborn to 6 months and then into a bucket seat for 6 months plus. There is also the Lux seat which is one seat unit but is suitable from birth as it lies completely flat. They are both lovely options so it really is just a personal preference as to which one you prefer. I really like the Lux seat as it is quite padded but I am a carry cot lover for tiny babies so I have no idea how I would choose between them at all. Both seat units go up to 17kg so will generally last till you no longer require a pram. Another amazing thing about the Cybex Priam is that the seats sit at table height so can be used as a highchair in cafes and restaurants if needed.
Other lovely features of the Priam include a spacious and expandable basket underneath, perfect for shopping or any baby bits you need to take with you. Car seat adapters are included to make the Priam the perfect travel system and the Priam is super lightweight and easily manoeuvred using one hand which I love as I am such a weakling and even struggle to move a small trolley around a supermarket. The Priam also has an extendable sun canopy with UVP50+ sun protection.
The Birds of Paradise fashion collection is just absolutely stunning. The attention to detail is second to none, with gorgeous brightly coloured embroidered birds over the Lux seat, on the hood, the back of the seat and on the footrest. I love how there are parts of the design which really stand out but then there are some areas with subtle details which really a make a difference to the overall appearance to the design.
I am honestly just in love with the Cybex Priam and will definitely be considering it when we have another little one. Ailsa and I had such a brilliant day and I would just like to thank everyone who made us feel so welcome, It was so lovely to meet some new friends and Ailsa had such a blast playing with the other little ones.
