I am in the process of looking for a Phil and Ted double buggy to buy second hand (can't afford new one!), but am now confused as have seen a new phil and ted classic for sale for £299. This seems good but what is the difference between this and the e3?

Any advice would be appreciated.

the 'new' classic is basically the e3 minus the bumper bar. and i think the classic only comes in red. here

Thanks Misdee.

I now need to decide whether to spend £200 on second hand e3 in average condition (i have found one and need to get back by tomorrow!), or stretch a further £100 for a new classic??

Obviously being pregnant, I am totally unable to make a decision that I am happy with or that I can stick to for more than 5 minutes.

I don't think I will need the double bit for long as once dd3 comes along dd2 will be almost 3.

Oh, decisions, decisions.....

I don't know if this helps in your decision making, but we have the Phil & Ted e3 - there is 18mths between first & 2nd and it was fantastic for the first 9 months, however since the eldest got a scooter for Xmas when he was 2yrs 4mths he has not been in the pram once. I am now due with 3rd (in 2 weeks) and there will be 20mths difference between 2nd and 3rd and I cannot get the second one into the pram.
In fact I haven't used my Phil & Ted since August when my eldest turned 3 and got a balance bike and my second started using the scooter.

Thanks ScarletT,
I am rethinking now, and considering a buggy board for DD2. I think the phil and ted has become a bit of a status symbol grin

There is 17months between by first 2dds and I had a double maclaren for them, but such hard work to push as they got older! I am expecting baby no.3 in 9 weeks and dd2 will be 3 in January, so she probably will be walking mostly.

Are you all ready for number 3? I am feeling surprisingly calm about another, but that could all change!
