I really like the look of this buggy for my toddler (3 years) and baby (due in Jan). It's reasonably priced enough to use for a shortish while till my toddler doesn't want to ride in a buggy. What are the good and bad points? Would you recommend it? Any info would be fantastic. Many thanks.
Seems such a good buggy-I read your message about amazon when i was trying to find out about it.I saw that as well,such a shame they wont ship to the uk! The cheapest i have seen is Toys r us. Where have you looked?
I tried my 10 month old dd3 in it a few months ago when we found out i was expecting again and she looked far too big and uncomftable for the front seat then. The seat just wasn't deep enough for her bum and her legs just hung. She is only now in 6-9 clothes so is quite petite too.
Its the Jane twin two we have. The reclining mechanism has gone on it 3 times and now the front seat has broke. Ds1 went flying back onto ds2's legs a couple of weeks ago. I couldnt understand why he was screaming. Now I know
I have gone for the mamas and papas duette, i know, i know, it's heavy and bulky but dd4 can sleep flat in a carrycot and dd3 will only be 13 months and weighs about 18lbs so she wont make it too heavy and they can both rear face. Im picking up the chassis from a mnetter today and have bought a seat unit and carrycot from ebay and probably another set from here. I loved the phil and teds in pink camo might get that when the baby is a bit bigger, i dont want her hidden away under the seat i want to be able to show her off! I loved the kolcraft too but i was put off by the huge shipping costs and wasn't sure how much customs would add on.
NBG-Any ideas where i can get one in the uk or do Kolcraft post to the uk.Couldn't see their postage to uk.Found one on ebay but they wanted an arm and leg to post over to here I couldn't see the max weight for the buggy-weighed ds this morning and he is 17.8kg and nearly 3 ft 1".Clearly not a short arse like me. So i think he is too heavy for the Graco(15KG) or could i get away with it for a while?
I dont think atm you can buy the Kolcraft one in the UK. When I wanted it last year, I started a thread on here and asked if someone in the US would be willing to have it shipped to them and forward it over to the UK. I was lucky in that one lady offered who was flying over and said she would stick it in as her hand luggage, but sadly when we checked the dimensions of the pushchair, it was too high for our boot (very very shallow boot). Its a steal though for the price.
I've just remembered another pushchair I had my eye on last year NF. Very similar concept to the Kolcraft and you couldnt get it when I wanted it. The Duette Just a little bit pricey, but if you can afford it, I think it would be a great pushchair.
