Advantages: Multi positions from birth, folding, lots of extras
Disadvantages: Expense and could be lighter
This was our fourth double pushchair in a range of several of varying types and styles and it's the best out of the bunch.
The multi position twin seats are suited from birth with five point harnesses and varying reclining positions too. It's optional, but you can get two matching cosy toes, however many you need and the exact fit raincover but this is a pushchair bursting with extras anyway, the twin cup holders on the back, the twin shopping baskets below, the twin pouches on the rain/sun hoods and the UV filter at the front which is great in the sun and ideal for light showers too.
It has a suspension, which in one breath is amazing for a pushchair and in the other it's about time! You can lock the wheels or allow swivelling, I never lock them, I find it irritating.
One of the most important aspects has been the width, to fit through any standard door or 73cm which allows us greater access than some of our previous baby wheels.
It folds up umbrella style, which is really handy is boot space or bus space is limited and it isn't hard to do but far from a one handed job. It does seem longer than any of our other pushchairs, single, double or otherwise. It doesn't fit well in my mid range family hatchback and has to go corner to corner but strangely fits better in my partners small hatchback.
The seat covers are easily removed and washed, which is a huge relief for any parent.
All in all we've heavily relied on this pushchair and it has never let us down, I would recommend it to anyone and everyone!
My reviews may appear in the same or a slightly different format on other sites.
Summary: Well worth the wonga for the wheels
