if you have a healthy budget i have the ABC Adventure buggy from new zealand. it is great and i love it. ive tried a side by side type and it was terrible to maneuver. the abc is easy, light, flexible and hard wearing. its so easy to steer because there is no weight over the front wheels.

it is heavy to lift into the car and although it folds very flat but is quiet tall/long when folded.

they are made by the phil n ted people.

just google abc adventure buggy.

you do sometimes get them come up on ebay or you can get them direct from NZ.

How old are the mindees ?
I will have an 11 mo, a 19 mo and ds who is 17 mo every tues, and not sure what will be best option, - though ds does still like his sling, it may be sling and double buggy ! Tink they all too little for buggy board though

They will be 14 months 13 months and 11 months!!!!

I have a side-by-side triple buggy (Gordons) - it folds up really well.

It isn't the most practical buggy because of its sheer width, but works well for me as a childminder because I only need it for school runs, to get to very local groups (in halls with double doors), and I can use it on day trips out (farm park-type of thing). I certainly wouldn't recommend it to a parent who needs to go into shops or lifts! I can't get into my local shop for bread and milk.

I like the children being "in a row" for days out and local walks - they all get to see everything!

dont have any experance but i saw one in town last week. It was just a basic umberella fold, but they all had cosy toes on and they looked comfy, it wasn't as wide as i thought a triple would be and i have seen some of the chunkier doubles that i'd say were wider.
