Summary: We bought this product as our son who is only 19 months but very big for his age outgrew his cosatto pram and this one does upto 5 years.<br />tried him in pram in another shop before purchasing just to be sure it would be ok.<br />Pram was easy to put together, my son loves his pram - he even tries to climb in (thats a first lol) although it is heavy and bit bulky this was one of reasons for us deciding to buy it as felt it would be more durable.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Easy To Clean, Quality Construction
Summary: I am using my Phil and Teds for a new-born and toddler. I totally love it. I was very reserved about purchasing one because of the weight but so glad i did. My only problem is with the sun hood. When you have the double kit on the front it doesn't sit in its proper place, you have to put it higher up and it doesn't quite clip on properly.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Easy To Manoeuvre, Easy to Set Up, Smooth Ride
Summary: Was recommended the Phil & Teds by friends with 2+ children as soon as we announced we were expecting our second. We haven't used the product yet but feel fully prepared for the arrival of our 2nd child!
Summary: I use this for my new baby who is 6 weeks and my toddler who is 22 months. The best things about it are it is not too wide so you can get in most shop doors without trouble. My newborn loves being in the cacoon, it sort of gently sways as you go along. I can see my newborn and make eye contact. My toddler likes the fact she is quite high up and happily sits in the second seat. The hood is great too as you can quickly adjust it to follow the sun.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Not too wide, Smooth Ride, Stylish
Cons: 2nd seat does not recline, Hard To Manoeuvre, Too Heavy
Summary: this pram looks amazing was easy to put together but the booklet is all in pictures, so it takes a little longer than if it had been instructions with pictures. the only problem is it is hard to put down, as i have a new born and a 14 month old, and its a long of taking parts of and putting bits on and swaping and changing bits - i think when my baby is a bit older it will be amazing but for now its a little difficult, overall its good
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: I've not had this long but so far so good - I've bought it to replace my previous pushchair so I can use it for two children when my baby arrives in a few weeks. I wish I had bought it to begin with so I didn't have the expense of buying a pushchair that was no good for two children and then having to buy a different one. I love the fact it is just as good for one child as it is for two.
Summary: I agree with some of the reviewers in that: <br /><br />It "Defintitely ticks all the boxes for quality engineering and feels rugged!<br /><br />However, my MAIN niggle is that I am yet to find a way of folding it up without grazing the foam handle bar or scratching the front swivel cap on the ground. <br /><br />Lastly, it sits awkwardly in the boot, due to the 3 wheels folding and sitting all at one end.
Summary: I got this today, so have only used it once so far. I have a 2.5 year old boy and I'm having a little girl next week.<br />My son LOVES it!! <br />I found it easy to assemble using the online video I found on the Phil and Teds website, I'm not sure I could have done it with just the booklet though. <br />It's a really smooth pram to push, a little heavy/bulky compared to my sons single pram, but I guess that is to be expected. <br />So far I LOVE IT!
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Easy to Set Up, Smooth Ride
