Just found out we are having twins!

Been looking at prams, I really don't want a side by side and I can't afford £800!

I don't like the graco stadium duo.

What other choices do I have? Have seen the kids largo duellette, can anyone recommend??

What do/did you have??

Thanks x

Honestly, tandem buggies (imo) are pretty crap.

I had an icandy which I hated! I got rid of it when my twins were 16 months and got a Out and About Nipper. It is a great buggy, light and easy to push. We never had problems fitting through doors and on the bus. They are really affordable too and you can pick them up for around £100 second hand.

The majority of twins mums I know (and I know a lot!) have a Nipper.

Honestly do reconsider a side-by-side. Nipper or BJCM or Mountain Buggy tend to be the ones I see the most of. You should be able to pick most up second hand.

Out n about nipper is a fab buggy. So easy to push. I have a phil and teds navigator tandem as well but much prefer the nipper (as do the dcs).

Nipper outlet page has a reduced double if you don't want second hand

Thankyou, funny I was totally against a side by side but now after having a look I do like the nipper and a couple of others.

We have a tandem one (egg) but only because it's the only one that will fit through the ridiculously skinny front door- which is VITAL!

I would love to have a side by side nipper- it's definitely the most popular one in our twins club.
Good luck!

Have to agree with the last comment on the peach, I had one for my girls and my sister has one for her twin boys. I great compact pushchair that is easy to use and really good looking.

The icandy is tiny though for bigger children. Almost everyone seems to swapnit once children 18 months. I can't imagine x2 3 year olds fitting in for example if needed

The mountain buggy duet is narrowest side by side, but the nipper is cheaper and lighter

Baby jogger city select. Check out eBay.

I spent loads on an uppababy vista. It was amazing for 9 months and then it just became really really heavy to push around. Any kind of uphill walk became miserable. I ended up getting a second hand city mini side-by-side and I'm really happy with it. It goes through almost all doors and it's so much lighter and easier to use.

Thankyou, I can't stretch to an egg or vista or icandy im afraid, I have too much to buy as starting from scratch-the mountain buggy duet and the nipper are the two I think I will look at.
Thankyou for all the help x

I have an iCandy for my little one and there is loads of room, she came out of the carrycot at 6 months and still fits in beautifully. Unlike some of the other brands it takes up to 25kg. Easy to fold and will be able to keep it for my second as I can upgrade it to a double so easily. x
