We've spent weeks testing prams and pushchairs in real homes with real families. Read our round up of the top 10 pushchairs to find out which ones were awarded Mumsnet Best.
Rear facing pushchair for twins - bugaboo donkey, iCandy pear or baby jogger city select?
The rear facing aspect is really important to me (have a 2.5yo DD and she still faces me now - we love it!), so much as some of the front facing only ones look fzb, prob not for me. I definitely want to be able to interact with both twins.
We'll mostly use it for around town - lots of walking, including walking the dog.
I am 5'11" and DH is 6'1" so needs to be good for tall people!
Obviously, I want to be able to fit through most doorways, and, if poss, onto local trains, although the public transport is, at a push, non essential.
Boot space isn't a huge issue either as we are getting a bigger car (seat Alhambra 7 seater with the rear seats down!)....
DD will be on a buggy board at times, but the lascal one apparently fits on all these.
How wide is it? I looked at the Strollair... It's 73.7cm vs the Bugaboo's 74 (without car seats, but we won't use them on the pushchair - never needed or wanted to with DD... They're too scrunched up in there!).
I think the FirstWheels is 77. There haven't been many places I've not fitted, but there are a few. Other than that (and needing to remove the seats to fold) it is brilliant. That's why I think the StrollAir looks great (though Dont know how wide that is).
A year ago i'd have had a strollair but I do love a lie flat seat instead or carrycot or bucket seat and nothing inbetween. I don't know how much they will be here, importing one when I needed it was prohibitively expensive.
