I need a buggy very soon for a 11mo and a 13 mo. They're both big boys so need a pretty roomy one.

I've been looking at the Graco DuoSport and Mothercare Duolite, both would be brilliant but are slightly too big to fit in my car (I have a VW Golf).

I've been searching in desperation - I'd love an umbrella folding one as storage is also an issue, but they're all so narrow.


Thanks a lot

What about the combi we2? Umbrella fold, fairly roomy by the look of it.

I have a Jane Powertwin and also a Mclaren Techno double. I also drive a golf. The Powertwin fits in easily. The Mclaren has to be wedged and can be a right pain to get in or out (don't really use it much just keep it in car for emergencies).

Powertwin fits my DS1 (2.5) fine. The hoods are a bit low if pulled forward completely, esp the front one but DS1 fits under quite happily. I have 7 month old DTs so have never have two older children in, but often have DS1 and DS2 in.

Took Mclaren double on a day trip recently and did not try it with DS1, only with DTs, but struggled a lot more with it. Might just be because I am not used to it but find the air filled tyres on Powertwin really help when buggy is heavy.

double nipper for my 16mth olds (dt2 is big) and they have loads of room (and ds1 4.8 can also fit in it - he doesn't but he wanted to try it out for size to see what he was missing.)

I have a double nipper and still use it for my 2.6 yr old and 4.6 year old at times ( shse is v. lazy grin ). Brilliant, love it, easy to push and plenty of room.
