I really need to change my pram, My I'd twin girls are nearly 2 and getting way too big for their I candy peach blossom ^ which I love, love love^

We live in a Victorian terrace and have a slim doorway which is why I love the I candy so much.

Can anyone recommend an easy to manoeuvre twin pram suitable for toddlers?

Preferably one that I can get through my doorway?

I have a Maclaren twin as we needed a foldable pram to fly on holiday. It is so hard to push!

I'm going for a phil and teds next I think as the boys will be walking so if they get tired can just pop them in there for a rest :-)

Isn't one right underneath the other?
I think what I need is basically a long shopping trolley with 2 seats one behind each other, like a toy train carriage, does anyone make those? grin

I love my out and about nipper - narrower than it looks and goes through my doorway. I've had it from birth and it's been perfect. I considered a tandem as a 2nd buggy but was advised I would find it heavy with 2 in, especially as I was so used to how light the nipper is.

If space was a big issue I'd probably go for a Phil and Ted as at 2 dd1 was walking lots - although dtds were prem and at 14 months aren't walking yet so might be different with them.

Alternatively, get a single with a buggy board.

Isn't the baby jogger city select a long tandem?

Can't believe you made it to nearly two years with the peach, my two are just nearly one and I am starting to hate my icandy as its just so hard to get lower twin in and out. She grabs the bar and swings from it (j know its best to take top seat off but not always possible)

I bought an Obaby twin sport thing for holidays but am using it nearly every day now as they live sitting next to each other and both having a proper unobscured view. It's slightly narrower than a standard door, we also live in a Victorian terrace and it just about scrapes in. Not much harder to push but my two are much smaller than yours.

The Out n About Nipper will fit through most doorways - its much narrower than you'd expect. Its also a doddle to push even with 2 hefty toddlers. I loved mine. The only downside (unless they've changed the design recently) is that you can't adjust the seats so they're completely upright, they will only go so far which means the children are very slightly reclined. Mine hated that as they got older, and we had to put cushions behind them so they could sit completely upright and look around.

We have a city jogger mini, it is fab but does not fit through our stupidly narrow doorway (we also live in a victorian terrace house.)

At 2 they very rarely sleep in the pushchair anyway, so I get them in and out of the pushchair outside and they toddle in while I fold it up, it folds really easily so thats not a problem.

It is slightly harder when I have got bags of shopping as that is usually when DT's try to get back out as I am going in, but it is so easy to manoeuvre that it makes up it.
