Any views on these?

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.

Amy ideas? Anything else I haven't thought of?

I saw that strollair now have a uk facebook page, their duo is a great option that previously had to be imported.

I have a FirstWheels City Twin, which looks very like the StrollAir Duo. I love it, but it is wide and doesn't fold with the seat units on (which the StrollAir looks like it does).

That StrollAir is the only side by side double I've ever seen that looks as good as the FirstWheels in terms of functionality. If you can live with the width, I would recommend the FirstWheels smile

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 would say the donkey if you want to use the buggy board also as the bugaboo board works great on 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.

The Stroll-Air is a zillion times better than a First Wheels City Twin. This might help.

I have a Donkey (for baby and toddler) and I love it! Would defo much lighter than others!

Even though Strollair have a UK face book page, I can't figure out where you can actually buy (online to UK or in a shop) or try it! Anyone?
