    In practise, not much. Do you have a real context?

    doll's pram is what I would write, it is a pram for a doll. By definition it would be small and could equally well be called a toy-pram.

    toy-pram indicates it is a pram for playing with
    doll pram seems wrong to me, but I wouldn't be surprised to hear someone use it.

    Actually, I don't have a real one, but I saw them on Google.
    Any way, thank you so much.:)

    Hermione, I think pram is a BrE word. (I think Americans talk about baby carriages.) If we're referring to this kind of thing

    I would call it a doll's pram too. However, I do see doll prams being advertised in Argos, and dolls prams (no apostrophe) in Amazon.co.uk.
