I did have one, but personally didn't get on with it so sold it on, but I know others who liked them. Sorry not much help.

I have one and used it several times a week last year when I had 3 lo's who either weren't walking or too young to walk to school and back. I found it helped as I didn't need to fork out for a triple buggy and don't use it at all now that they are all a year older. I've kept it in case I need it again. I didn't have too much trouble pushing the in-line double with the pod attached to the side and would use it again if I needed too. It cost about £80 which is a lot less than a triple buggy.

I've got one andlione it, use it on phil and ted. Combined weight of all children makes it heavy so I don't use it much now (all over 2years so take turns walking) been worth every penny to me

I did have one, but it didn't work well with my 3 wheeler tandem. It made it tip a couple of times.

Having said that, I think I would have got on better with it if I'd had a four wheeled tandem. The children were comfortable in it and you just had to watch that if you went up or down pavements, you looked for a dip in the curb.

thank you :) i may consider looking at second hand.
i just dont like the idea of a triple for the sake of a few days a week, for school run mainly so dont want to spend alot.:thumbsup:

i didn't feel happy pushing up and down kerbs :( I now have a T3 tripple jogger which is a double that has a third toddler seat that sits on top. Its a dream, but was expensive and is big to store.

I have one and it is easy to store away when not being used. Had a triple side by side and found it too heavy without the kids in it too. Couldnt afford a T3 jogger so buggy pod was a good alternative.

I got one for about £50.00 from eBay last year.

When my dd and mindees were small it was a godsend, the only thing I didnt like about it was going up and down kerbs, but you soon get used to it.

But now all my mindees and dd are round about 2-3 yrs old, and it is a nightmare to use with them in it so I make them walk everywhere, meanie that I am!

But i have no intention of getting rid of it as I am sure I will use it again in the future!!
