In December 2012, CR judged this model a Don't Buy - Safety Risk, because an unharnessed child could slip out beneath the bumper (or "grab") bar and be seriously injured or killed. iCandy's spokesperson informed us at that time that no more Cherry strollers would be shipped to the US. In March 2013, the iCandy Cherry was recalled by CPSC due to this strangulation hazard. CPSC recommended that owners of the stroller immediately remove the bumper bar from the stroller and contact iCandy America Inc. at 877-484-4179 to receive a free replacement bar. Consumers can continue to use the stroller without the original bar, while awaiting the replacement bumper bar.
The iCandy Cherry is part of the stroller
test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, traditional stroller
models like the Cherry are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.

Features & Specs - iCandy Cherry
5-pt harness Five-point harness secures child firmly. Unlike a three-point harness, it secures the upper body.
Suitable for 6 mos. and under Suitability for babies 6 months and younger means the stroller could include a safety flap at the child's feet so he or she doesn't slip out of a large leg hole, or some other means of containing a child of this age. Even with this added feature, the harness should still be used.
Suitable for 6 mos. and under
Car-seat compatible Car-seat compatible strollers allow you to mount a car seat directly onto the stroller. (Some strollers require an adapter bar or brackets, usually included with the stroller.) Car seat compatibility is useful when you're moving a sleeping infant from a car to the stroller.

Adjustable handle An adjustable handle can accommodate parents of different heights.
Stands folded This is convenient in restaurants or other tight spaces. It also makes storing at home easier.
