“ Brand: Hauck / Type: Umbrella / Number of Seats: Double / Twin Seats „
I bought this pram about 3weeks ago for my 1year old twin boys as my previous pram Cosatto You 2 Twin Buggy from Mothercare had broke after just a year. (a review will be coming soon about this one)
I did like my cosatto pram as it did exactly what I needed it to do, fit through doorways without too much hassle and look trendy as most double buggys are just not 'trendy' in my eyes at all. I knew when this pram broke I needed to look for a pram similar in size and again, trendy and with it. I also needed a lightweight pram as my boys are quite big and heavy, so a stroller would be my best option again. I only had a low budget so shopped around online on sites such as Mothercare, Ebay, Amazon. It was on ebay though that I found this one the Hauck Speed Sun Duo, it wasn't secondhand it was in fact from an ebay shop.
It was a different design to on the above picture though, there were a few different designs but they were all disney winnie the pooh. There were 2 types of lightblue 1s, the above red 1 and the navy 1 I bought. I decided against the red 1 as I'm not a red lover, and thought light blue would become dirty to easy.
It's a lovely design, being all navy with bits of red but not too much otherwise I wouldn't of liked it, a Pooh bear at the back of each seat and the words Pooh in funky writing. I fell in love straightaway and it's not often I do that with a double pram.
It cost me just £90 including delivery, but didn't come with a raincover but I kept my raincover from my Cosatto pram.
Delivery was quick, and when it came flat packed into a tall box I was a bit nervous as to whether I would have to put it together or not. Thankfully though it was so easy to put together I didn't even have to read the instructions. Bonus!
I had to open up the pram as it was folded flat the way a stroller does, but the wheels and hoods were seperate. There were 3 wheels for the front and 3 wheels for the back. Simple to tell which ones were for which though, the back wheels just had a square opening for the back poles to be put into and secured with a little metal bit which had to be pushed in to make sure the wheel was in secure. Whereas the front wheels had circle holes for the circle shaped poles to fit into, and clips attached. These clips I can either push down or lift up to make the wheels swivel, or stay straight. This is my choice.
The hoods were tied up to keep them neat and tidy, but once untied I had to pull them out and simply click them onto the pram with the clips already attached. There are cute, little, soft pooh bears hanging from them which makes the pram look alot more attractive and of course what I was looking for, trendy (lol)! The seats can either sit up right, or lay back in 3 flatter positions, just the same as the Cosatto pram so perfect for when my boys are either awake or asleep. There are also small shopping baskets situated underneath the seats, and pockets with zips on at the back of the hoods.
It really is a beautiful pram and so far I am very impressed with it, only thing I was worried about is it is 1cm wider than the Cosatto pram which is 74cm wide when unfolded. I was worried because double buggys cause alot of hassle anyway because of their width and although 1cm doesn't sound alot, it does actually become alot when you are trying to get past people in shops etc and they don't understand why you are saying "Excuse me Please" lol!
So far I definitely reccomend this pram to anybody looking for an easy to use, attractive looking and lightweight double pram. Definitely my best pram so far!
