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: 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 seem to mind being there! It's an easy to push, great for shopping, great for walks in the village and even great through muddy fields push chair.
Pros: Big shopping basket, easy to push and move around shops, smooth ride (I'd imagine) easy to fold up, brilliant buy!
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. We then looked at getting a side by side pram but the problem with them is that you can't get it through standard doors.
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 quality material. Also the seat liner can is removable and can be wiped down.
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. I think there are better strollers for single use only, but as a double this is perfect for us. Although it is not quite as solidly made as my previous BOB stroller, it is much more user friendly.
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! The foot break that, on the Sport, was impossible to use with flip flops, is now SO much easier. The one-hand fold is a HUGE step up from the old design.
Excerpt: We did extensive research on double strollers. We didn't want to invest in a traditional double since my son will be 2 when the new baby comes and we don't know how much longer he will actually sit in one. We also needed something that would fit in the trunk of our Honda. We saw reviews on the e3 and decided to take a look. It was perfect!!
