View Full Version : A good double buggy?

10-05-2010, 04:41 PM
I already have a side-by-side double but im not keen on it- its heavy, difficult to push and too wide. Can anyone reccommend something better? Are tandems better than a side-by-side?
I have just signed up a mindee and i have another coming for a chat on Friday. If this one signs, i will need to use the double 5 days a week so i want something half-decent!
Also, is it possible to use a buggy board on a double buggy? I would potentially have 3 LOs at one time, aged between 12 and 20 months so none of them old enough to walk far.

i can highly recommend a jane powertwin! when i was double buggy hunting i was against tandem ones as i wanted both children to have a good view, but then i had a go of a friends and loved it!

both children can see the world (not like those awful doubles where one child is virtually sat on the floor! :laughing: ),

its light, lifts up kerbs easily and folds up reasonably small for a double.

you can put a buggy board on it fine, my friend uses hers with one and theres plenty of room for the childs head.

the only downside is that they are quite expensive but you can pick them up off ebay which is where i bought mine.

if you are going to be using a double every day you want one you are happy with and doesnt make your life miserable at the thought of pushing it. if poss try and have a go with otheres peoples before you decide.

Yeah, and if there are older ones walking and holding on the one in the back gets all the attention and love it! They all chat away to each other, if none holding on they have direct view on the pusher!

i love my chicco twin side by side - it's so light - even with buggy board on it but I have a dodgy elbow so maneovering the tandems would be hard for me. Would love to try the P&T one day

I have a Mamu - never heard of them before but it's very good. Folds up small, easy to push, and not too heavy.

I have a maclaren side by side - hate it now :blush: need to get rid!!

Jane twin two tandem - bulky but a great ride for the kids, although no good for the bus now we have moved :rolleyes: so I got a.....

phil and teds classic - great for the bus but the bottom child kicks the front one and I don't like them so low down. Means to an end re the buses, can't do it any other way :rolleyes:

Would have liked a powertwin but it's bigger for the bus issue - have a single powertrack and love it :thumbsup:

Cossato twin lunar - side by side, had it for 2 years, loved it, had a buggy board on back. Now kids are a bit older i am struggling with the width of it-flying arms and legs so have just purchased...
Britax B-dual - based on concept of P&T but has wider seats, the top one can be forward or rear facing and both recline flat-perfect for naps and little ones. I have also managed to get my buggy board on this one too :-) x
