A Sturdy Pram That Does The Job!

Advantages: Single or double buggy, can handle smooth or off road terrain,
Disadvantages: Poor hood, heavy, complicated to build
We were umming and ahhing over which double buggy to get as ideally it had to be an all terrain one too. This pram fitted the bill but I was rather unsure of the back seat and whether my kids would take to sitting in it. I took my then 2.5yr old with me to the shops to try them out while I was pregnant. She went straight for the back seat and decalred that this would be HER seat the baby could go else where!
I found it all a bit confusing to begin with, with regards to the folding/unfolding but after playing with it at home it all became clearer.
The buggy comes in a rather small looking square box and you have to put it together. Easier said than done believe me! The hood got both me and my partner really frustrated. Once made it is a heavy pram but to me that makes it feel sturdy and not like its going to break after using it a few times off road.
In the newborn and toddler mode it does the job although the newborn bit does sway a bit when going off road but my son seemed to like it and it sent him off to sleep but some other babies might not like the motion.
He sat up in the back when he was about 5-6 months old and he never tried to put his hands in the back wheels or anything else. The back seat reclines slightly by undoing the zip which is great if they fall asleep in the back but it makes it a bit more difficult to push as you keep banging your legs into it.
Both my kids fight over who gets to sit in the back! then only thing worth mentioning is that is the child in the front gets out first while the other child is still in the back the pram will tip back. The hood is also a bit of a waste of time as it really doesnt cover the child in the front very well at all and doesnt cover the child in the back at all.
I would buy this pram again in a heartbeat but I think the accessories are stupidly expensive and refused to buy them.
Summary: A good, stylish pram for city or country
