    Default Double Buggy?

    Hiya

    A lovely lady has given me a mint condition 3 wheeler double buggy. Which I am very thankful for

    the only thing is it takes up my entire boot (only goes in after I take the wheels off) and I believe I may have problems lifting it in and out and building it.

    Are there any smaller double buggy's out there?

    I really don't mean to sound ungrateful

    I had a maclaren side by side for years and years... it was lightweight, fitted in my car (I had a fiesta at the time), had swivel wheels and lie back. I wonder if they still sell them?

    Argos do quite cheap double buggys that lie back for small babies and fold up fairly compact

    After trying out loads of different double buggy's with and without buggy boards, I came across the WE2 Combi, it is great ultra lightweight (8.2Kgs) it folds in half and then in half again to fit in your boot, it is light enough to pick up with one hand or will stand alone and does not fall over.

    It cost quite alot but with 3 little ones I use the pushchair and either a buggy board or a swiss bibi and it doesn't break the back !!!!!

    It is called a WE2 combi! I have just been looking at them on ebay as I have received my grant now so need to get one myself. It looks quite good and not that expensive compared to others. I have no idea what to get

    they cannot see where they are going but they see very well to the side of them and iv never had any complaints, when thinking of a buggy you have to way up the + and- of all and i needed one that would fit in the boot of my zafira whilst all my 7 seats are up and this is the only one that does, and i only ever need 0ne buggy not a double and a single, and they hold there value so if i ever need to sell it i will get some of my money back.

    My Phil and Teds cost £360. Try Kiddicare as they very ofen have offers on the doublepack. We got the buggy, the double sport pack, the raincover and a free trae cot all for £360. I swear by it and its the best buy ever. Very sturdy too.

    I paid about £70.00 for my WE2 Combi on Ebay, they are £260 in Mothercare, I went in with my kids and tried it in the shop!! if you look carefully on Ebay they are sometimes listed as just combi not WE2 or WE 2 these can sometimes have less bids on. If I were you I would take the kids into mothercare or somewhere and try all the pushcahairs, they let you try them in your car and everything, then say you will go and think about it and look on EBAY!!!!

    Happy Shopping

    Well have tried them all out in Mothercare this morning and still can't decide. I am used to a really sturdy chicco three wheeler so the WE2 feels too flimsy for me. Everything else my son seemed squashed in. I am however coming round to the idea of Phil & Teds! My son loved it. It was light and it would fit in my car even with all 7 seats up! It also looks strong enough to tackle the mounds of snow we usually have. Just need to persuade hubby now and then find one for the best price.
