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.) The air-filled tires, on a stroller that converts to a double, is a huge plus. Also, since the kids ride in tandem and on an angle to one another, it's completely manageable size-wise.
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). After looking at many strollers, we finally found the Phil & Ted's stroller and purchased it. It is awesome! We used the baby bassinett for the first four months with the second seat on top and then put the second seat on bottom.
Summary: Although I've only had the Explorer since Tuesday...it's amazing! I couldn't wait to take my son out in it. Even though everybody says its heavy, well it is to put it in the car, but I don't think it would be such good quality if it were light and flimsy. Also, when I was pushing it, it seemed so light, easy to handle and glided over bumps. Also, I can push it along one handed (which I couldn't with my old one).
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Easy To Use, Quality Construction
Summary: Great buggy if you have two young children, could not have lived withouth it!
Pros: Big shopping basket, easy to push and move around shops, smooth ride (I'd imagine) easy to fold up, brilliant buy! 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 rain hood does not fold up very small! 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.
Summary: After months of tedious research and with our second daughter coming we opted for this bundle - explorer with second seat, raincover and cocoon - and I have to say that we are very happy with it so far. As we don't drive we use public transport all the time and this IS a great product for our life-style.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Easy To Manoeuvre, Smooth Ride
