John Lewis Dolls' Jogger, Pink
Only for the brave
My wife warned me that it was difficult to assemble, but I'm a bloke, I can do IKEA, but trust me you don't have enough hours left in your life to spend it on this.

Lovely buggy rubbish instructions
Unlike previous reviewers our fitting problem was with the rear wheels. In the end it only worked by removing one of the spacers, otherwise the frame became spring-loaded and the wheels just popped off. The front wheel was straightforward so they may have changed the way it is fitted now. However, the instructions provided are truly rubbish and so tiny to be virtually unreadable even if they made sense -which they don't! It can't be that hard for someone from John Lewis to write new ones and provide a copy to the manufacturer!

Bought this for my 6yr old niece. We all tried to assemble it on Xmas day but the front wheel just would not go on. My sister exchanged for 2nd one, still same problem. absolutely rubbish instructions translated form Chinese. This is not up to John Leiwis standards . do not buy. RUBBISH. Even engineer friend couldn't assemble.

A lovely push chair
I bought this for my daughter for Christmas, it is very well made, my only criticism so far is that the strap to hold the doll in is one that needs threading which is too tricky for my little girl at present, but then she isn't yet 2!! Would recommend- we got the car seat in the same set too.

2 person job to assemble
What a start to Xmas! Thanks to previous reviewer's advice. To fit front wheel, lie buggy on floor on its side, then press down near springs close to seat. This will allow your assistant to release the front wheel bar. How can one child's buggy be so complicated?!?
A great buggy and one happy girl but rubbish instructions mean only average rating

Thank goodness for the internet, as other reviewers have said the instructions on this product are truly terrible. Thanks to the previous reviewer whose comprehensive instructions saved my sanity.
Also the product description makes an assumption this is a girls toy. Boys like to play with dolls and prams too, I bought this for my son but it would be nice if it was a neutral colour rather than pink.

The Pram is lovely and as you'd come to expect with John Lewis Products, they are of very high quality.
However the instructions are very poor.
Thank god I came on line or my husband would have turned green and smashed the thing apart.

Help with assembly
So grateful to previous reviewer! The instructions are SO bad! John Lewis why don't you revise them yourself?
Front wheel bar is released by squeezing the frame together at the springs further up the frame where it meets the seat. This opens the forks allowing the bar to be removed for wheel assembly.
For the back wheels, thread the bar through the holes in the frame. Add the white spacers at each end, then the wheels with the central extension inwards. Next take the little cap and press in the little white gripper flat side uppermost. Thread this onto the bar until it clicks. Add the hub cap and that's it!
Easy really but made so complicated by poor instructions
