Possibly standing up? Am I making sence?

I'm sure Phil and Teds did something like this once, but don't seem to anymore.

TrinityRhino Sun 17-Aug-08 14:18:19

he smart buggy only has two wheels

wouldn't the child be reclined alot for you to push it along?

misdee Sun 17-Aug-08 14:18:28

buggypods are rubbish though

MatNanPlus Sun 17-Aug-08 17:30:32

Agree personally Misdee but some people heart them hmm

Must say that TUG is fab.

I used the big plastic wagon in the US and was great round the area and funnily for shopping as no shopping trolleys with seats for 2 had a BIG CAR

I'm really not convinced about the Tug. hmm

Smart Buggy

I had a Smart Buggy for a while but I didn't really get on with it. I think the biggest problem with it was the uneven pavements where I am, the damn thing used to just jerk to a halt whenever it hit a bump bigger than about an inch. It worked much better pulling it, but then you can't see your child chucking one shoe away (never to be found again, I had to buy another pair). Also, although it has a small footprint when it's standing it has a much bigger footprint when it's leaning to be pushed/pulled so while you're in motion it takes up about as much space as a small pushchair. It was very comfy for ds though, he really quite like it. Although it didn't recline much, so wouldn't have been great for sleeping in.

I really fancy a tug, why didn't anyone tell me about it a couple of years ago when I needed it!

LynetteScavo Mon 18-Aug-08 23:19:01

I think I'll jsut have to get out myhip seat

So not a fashion item.

A shopping trolley? smile

louii Tue 19-Aug-08 16:38:43

Am i missing something with the smart buggy or is it not just like a maclaren with the front wheels missing, my back would be killing me with that, looks like it would be bulkier than a mclaren as well.

DrNortherner Tue 19-Aug-08 16:48:20

I'm sure you can get a car seat on wheels/trolley taht doubles as both, have seen a sleb using one....
