Love this stroller!
sretcho, the baby Scoop
5 June 2013
Excerpt: I have 2 young children - 1 toddler and 1 baby and this stroller is the best I have found (and I have tried a lot of them!). I live in an area with very bumpy sidewalks and the stroller gets lots of use over this and other rough ground (e.g. parks, etc.
Excerpt: As soon as I found out I was pregnant (again, so soon), we began the search for a double stroller. I did not want one of those huge side-by-side strollers (I found them to be onerous and difficult to balance weight ratios).
Summary: I am a nanny to two beautiful children, both under 3 years, so I needed a good buggy! Before starting the job I had seen this push chair being used and I thought it was a bit harsh for the child in the bottom seat, however, this push chair has been a life saver and the child in the bottom doesn't...
Pros: Big shopping basket, easy to push and move around shops, smooth ride (I'd imagine) easy to fold up, brilliant buy!
I love this buggy! Could not have left the house withouth it when my second child was born.

Summary: Fantastic buggy that made it so easy to go out and about with two young children. I would recomend it to anyone! It's easy to use and I think it looks great.
Pros: It's so slim that it really feels like a single buggy, so never have any issues in shops, busses etc. It's easy to stear, looks good and the kids fit nicely in the seat. I also think it folds surprisingly small for a doubble.
Cons: I find it slightly tricky to fold, but only because I do it so rearly. Also the space for lying flat is not the biggest so we had to put the baby sitting up quite early (we have a tall baby!)
Summary: if i had known all of this before i bought it would not hve done so
Pros: it looks smart
Cons: it is heavy, baby only faces mum if in car seat or peanut(which is tiny)i am expecting a new frame from PnTs as there are probs with brakes and a kit for the hood as it falls off when you fold the pushchair up. These are apparently common problems!
Great buggy, would have been stuck at home withouth it after my second child was born!

Summary: Great buggy if you have two young children, could not have lived withouth it!
Pros: I love that it's not any wider than a single buggy so I have not had any issues on traveling on busses. I find it's also very easy to stear and doesn't feel as heavy as I had expected.
Cons: The coccoon is very small and I couldn't fit my baby in it after he was 2 ½ months (although he is quite tall). Also it's a shame that you can't recline the bottom seat once you have changed over from the lying flat position.
FANTASTIC! I would recommend this pram to everyone!

Summary: Fabulous pram. We bought it as a double pram for our 2 year old and unborn baby. We looked at cheaper options like the Graco stadium duo and the Graco Quattro duo but they were so long and heavy before you have even put your children in. Like 18kgs before the children.
Pros: Really nice to push, the wheels just glide over bumps making it a smooth ride. Unlike most prams, it is suitable up to 20kgs not 15kgs. When it is folded it is small and fits into my Honda Jazz boot nicely. Also it is very easy to fold and put back up once you have a bit of practice. Great qualit...
Cons: The only con is the price but if it is bought as a pram for a first child then the price is alright as it can be used for other children with the double kit attached.
Summary: After going through an embarrassing number of single strollers for my first child, I really wanted to do some research before purchasing a double stroller to use with our toddler and new addition. There really is no perfect stroller, just what is perfect for your purposes.
Summary: Seriously, this is the BEST stroller for parents of two! I formerly had the Sport double and loved it, though it had a few things I wasn't thrilled with. But it's like phil&teds read my mind and fixed EVERYTHING I didn't like about the Sport with the new design of the Explorer!
