I have a Hauck Winnie the Pooh but with these two mindees it's a really tight squeze, with coats and footmuff etc, the bar was digging in to one of them, so I need a new one, don't really want a side by side, rather have another tandem, does anyone have one where the front seat is as roomy as the back seat for a chunkier child??

I like it, another childminder I know has the one from Argos, which look similar to that one, and she struggles to get it to go in the right direction. I have the Mothercare Duolite twin pushchair http://www.mothercare.com/gp/product/B00116QM54/sr=1-7/qid=1205356980/ref=sr_1_7/202-7450428-3845453?ie=UTF8&m=A2LBKNDJ2KZUGQ&n=42804041&mcb=core

Wish I had stuck with my Kidz Kargo Tandem 3 wheeler one even though the mothercare one is narrow I still struggle to get through doors and some lifts, I could even get into the Doctors to make an appointment for my daughter. I wnat a new pushchair now lol :)

I would definately have a twin if you can manage it, particularly if you have two of about the same age. I have 2 two and a halfs in mine and the conversations they have are amazing and really something to be encouraged. They are great company for each other.

I had the cheap Argos Century Twin, about £70 ish but wouldn't recommend it. It was really hard to steer and has quite a low maximum weight. I had t replace mine in a hurry and got a second hand Mamas and Papas Aria Twin. I love it!! Although it is a little bit too wide to get into the front door, I have had no prolblems getting in anywhere else and it is easy enough to push that I can go quite a long way with it.

I've got a Jane power twin that I had for my own youngest two. It's really nice and light. Not too bulky for in car and wheels come off really easy to make even easier to get in if boot is not very roomy.
Hope this helps.

I ordered the Meribel twin at 7am this morning LOL, thought about it all night and it's just too good an offer to miss out on I think, I hope it hurries up! Had to use the tandem again today and I am absolutely shattered. plus I don't like that C in the back can hear me but F in the front can't, nd I can't thear him either, at least with a side by side you can :)
