Hello, I'm going to my first festival with my 3 year old and 2 year old DD's next weekend and can't work out how to cart them about. Do you use a cart or double buggy or what? They can both walk really well but do get tired, but if I bring my usual single pram I just know they'll fight over it as soon as they get tired!

The requirements are:
Collapsible to fit in small boot
Room for 2 to nap

I've found these but I just can't seem to make up my mind, help!

Thank you!

At that age and size it'll be easier if you used a buggy. The trolleys are awkward and the ones you've linked don't look very large for two.
Could you borrow a double buggy? It would make your life so much easier.
We managed to fold our 6 year old into her ancient Maclaren at night time. One evening she was fast asleep with a 5 year old on top! Both slept because they were shattered.
We cracked last year and hired a trolley. I was large and needed two of us to get it up the killer hill. Child loved it and slept well but it was a chore.

Thank you Silver. Good thoughts, I'll ask around for a compact double. It's quite a small festival (so no hills!) but don't want to make life harder for myself.

If anyone can link to smaller carts that would be great too.

We have this one:

It comes to pieces to go in the car (we don't bother with the roof but take a big umbrella).

I love having a cart,I find them a lot easier than a buggy round a festival. We start off with the kids walking and all our stuff in the cart, as the kids get tired we carry our bags and the go in the cart. I like than they can have a proper sleep while we wander about.

I like the look of the carts with and extra bag attached, I could imagine that being useful.
