Marco Sky Twin Buggy
Advantages: Small width, nice looking, suitable from 2 months old at the back (6 at the front)
Disadvantages: Heavy, bulky, only suitable from 6 months if twins, cant steer with 1 hand
I originally bought this buggy after so much hype about it on the twinsclub website. Everybody was raving about it so I purchased one to see for myself. It cost me about £80 new. At the time, my twins were 6 months old and the buggy seemed nice and light to handle but just 6 months later, it was a different story!
The Marco Sky is a neat little buggy but I found it not as good as people made out. it folds up umbrella style but was quite bulky in the boot of my car, and only just fit - a 5-door renault scenic! I certainly didnt have room for much shopping in the back. The very small basket underneath was tiny and you cant really put much in it other than a beaker or two. Getting around is easier than a side by side and the width is not much bigger than a single buggy so that is a plus but as the kids get older, the buggy becomes extremely heavy. I found getting up and down pavements was a real problem, and literally had to pull the buggy right back with my foot on the brake to lift it up a step. The canvas hood is removeable and also has a small window which is quite good so you can see the child in the back seat. Also, its not possible to steer with one hand which is essential at times when you need a hand free.
Overall, id say there was far too much hype about this buggy and really only best with children aged about 6 months - 2 years as after that, its far to heavy to lug around.
Hope this review helps!
Summary: A nice looking buggy and great for a quick trip to town but far too heavy and hard to steer
