I am pg with twins and trying to find the right pram/pushchair to last them from birth to 3 yrs. Our house is a Victorian terrace so doorway and hallway are quite narrow so for this reason I am considering the P&T twin classic as it's the narrowest of the side by sides. Haven't seen one in the flesh - does anyone know who stocks them in the South West? - and am looking for some feedback from some mums out there who've got one or know someone who has.
I know there are some front and back pushchairs out there and for a while I was set on an iCandy pear but I am being put off that by comments on the weight of it and it possibly being too small for twins after the age of 1. If possible i just want to buy 1 pushchair to last the duration, which I managed with my DS and his lovely bugaboo!
I've not seen the side by side P&T. But, have you looked the ABC Design Zoom? It's a tandem, can take two car seats, two lay-flat pram bits or two seats and can be forward or rear facing. I considered it for my two under two, I went for the P&T Vibe in the end, but if I were having twins it's be the Zoom. Definitely.
i have a pear, ds is 28mnths and still happy in there!
I had a go with the p+t side by side recently at kiddicare, its lovely to move felt light with my 2 in Theyre 28mnths and 11mnths, but i just cant handle a side by side easily it seemed huge compared to my slim pear. But the seats are lovely and long, ds was VERY comfortable.
A friend of mine with 2yo twins has a p&t side by side and absolutely loves it. She got it (in oz) because it was narrow (she was v.keen on side by side) and she could use coccoons with it. Has never had a bad word to say about it. I asked on here when I was pg with my dt's and there was someone who had one (and liked it v.much). If you post in multiple births you might get more answers. It is rather heavy tho I think to get in and out of the car. If the nipper fitted, it would be ideal for you as it's so light compared to the rest of them. Tis a bit wider than even the Mountain buggy though (which i have) Wish I could have fitted a nipper through my narrow front door! I'd agree with you about the pear btw, I looked at it too when pg.
I have a 16 mo and a 2 mo old and I love it because (i) it can use the cocoon (ii) both seats recline independantly (iii) my son's seat is comfy enough for him to sleep in (iv) it's still narrow and light enough to manage.
I think there are probably other options for twins, but for my two - where one wants to be able to it up and look around and the other needs to lie flat, it's a great option. I think, going forward, it will be a great buggy too.
I'd def. recommend it and they go pretty cheaply on ebay - mine cost £77 delivered to my door and came with rain covers etc.,
This is what you need I adore mine. I'm had a P&T and had 5 punctures in 11 months, I was told by a P&T stockist I was lucky to get away with so few punctures
The Baby Jogger is narrow and very lightweight for a side by side. Even though it's light weight, you can hang bags off it without it tipping. It folds very easily too. The website I linked is the cheapest I could find for you. I got mine for £300 inc raincover and delivery They do a gorgeous pale green colour which I wish I'd got. I've got the red, black and cream
That's weird, on google it says £279 next to the link but doesn't give a price on the website.... Actually once you've paid for the raincover it will be £300 not £279. Maybe not the cheapest website then. I would definitely look into it if I were you though
