“ Manufacturer: Mountain Buggy / Type: Standard / Number of Seats: Double / Twin Seats „
Over the past five years we've had more than our fair share of buggys/prams/pushchairs but the Mountain Buggy has far outshone any of the others. With a disabled 3 year old and new baby, I needed a double that would be big enough to accomodate my daughter until she was six. The Phil & Teds was far too cramped and the Out and About didn't have any footroom. This was the only buggy I tested that had the growing room and still has plenty two years later. Its robust, extremely easy to push and turn, has adjustable handle and individual seat positioning. Its very quick and easy to fold down and put up - my only gripe is the wheels can swivel inwards and hamper folding - not a huge deal when its so easy to manouver. It is an expensive buggy, but you're paying for quality and the resale value is high. I couldn't recommend this highly enough - we've gone on to buy the Mountain Buggy Single Terrain XL, a Special Needs version which accomodates children up until they're 10, for when baby no longer needs his side of the double buggy!
I absolutely love my Mountain Buggy Double pushchair. I purchased this pushchair when my son was born and my daughter was 15 months old and too young to walk everywhere. The advantages for me are that the seats are nice and comfortable and both passengers have plenty of room. The seats are reclined using a strap at the back of each seat, so you don't have to use pre-set positions you can recline it exactely to the point you want. The pushchair has an adjustable handle which is ideal for us as I am very short and my husband is very tall. The steering is a dream and requires no effort at all. The urban version has front swivel wheels that can be locked into position if needed. The swivel function is fantastic and makes weaving in and out of shops no problems at all. Even though the passengers sit side-by-side in this pushchair the width has never caused me any problems when going into shops. This puschair is ideal for us as we often take long walks in the forest or on the beach. I have had no problems pushing this pushchair on either surface, in fact, I was really suprised at how easily it tackled the sand. Another plus is that the covers are competely removable so the frame and the covers can been cleaned with ease. The disadvantages are that is doesn't collaspe down very small and can be awkward to get into the back of the car. The shopping basket under the pushchair could do with being bigger. Finally, the pushchair is a bit on the expensive side.
