Need a Twin Pushchair? Check Out Some Double Buggy Reviews
If you need a bigger pushchair due to twins or a growing family, check out this double buggy review list for the best double buggies of 2017. These will mean you can go outside with two or more children independently and both babies will be comfortable and secure.
- Bugaboo – These stylish and versatile pushchairs come in various styles: front-facing, rear-facing, double and more, to help you find a buggy to suit all needs. The designs are modern and fresh, and they come with sleek black frames and a pop of block colour on the hoods. Their most popular styles include the Bee, the Chameleon and the Donkey. Many of the buggy seats can be transformed into carry cots, so you don’t need to buy a separate one. They also do a range of luggage systems, so you can stock up on a new holiday suitcase along with your buggy purchase!
- iCandy – iCandy is a classic choice of pushchair company who have built a huge range of products since they were established back in 1933. From their stylish Orange ‘futureproof’ collection to their brand-new Land Rover collaboration, these pushchairs are highly functional and ready for use on all terrain. Choose an iCandy if you’ll be taking your buggy on family country walks, gravel pathways and down to the seaside: they’re durable and sturdy enough for any activity as well as day-to-day.
- My Babiie – These cute, attention-grabbing prams are perfect for a yummy mummy who doesn’t want to settle for the average black buggy. This company has launched ranges by TOWIE star Billie Faiers and model Katie Piper, whose pushchairs come in a wide range of colours and unique prints including stars, candy stripes, butterflies and zigzags (they also do matching printed highchairs) so you can put your individual style into your childcare products.
- Silver Cross – This revered British company produce luxury pushchairs for all budgets – you can pick up a comfy and functional buggy from the Avia range for just over £200, or splash out on a beautiful regal-looking Balmoral Vintage pram for £1900. Silver Cross’s budget editions are super-lightweight and suitable for use from new-born up until your child weighs 20kg. They’re fully adjustable, foldable, very affordable and come in three neutral stylish colourways. At the upper end of the budget scale, the prams feature intricate spoked wheels and padded silky bedding for ultimate baby luxury.
- Maxi-Cosi – Maxi-Cosi creates pushchairs, baby carriers, carry cots and car seats, so you can get everything you need for your baby in one shop. This brand’s buggies are a great choice for their durable frames and ability to transform into carry cots and car seats – you’re getting 3-in-1 for your money. They typically retail for £400-£500, making them a mid-range investment. We like the Maxi-Cosi Nova, for its sports-luxe looks and hands-free folding feature, a great addition for busy mums.
- Mothercare – Mothercare’s own range of pushchairs are smart and affordable, and often come at a discounted price in their frequent sales. Ranging from £129 upwards, there is a buggy to be found for all price ranges. They come with an abundance of storage space and pockets, accounting for the number of bags, toys and food you need to carry around when you go out and about with little ones. There’s plenty of colour choices to suit any taste, and many styles can be taken apart for the seat to become a carry cot. Whether you’re after a three-wheel pram or upright toddler pushchair in a bold print, Mothercare have endless choices.
If I ever get the chance to have a double buggy, my first choice would be the bugaboo donkey, I absolutely love the look of them and love how you can also use it as a single. The only set back for me would be the price tag. The Mothercare double pushchairs seem to be the most affordable but you can always buy now & pay later or look in the sales, for example Black Friday is coming up so keep your eye out for any last minute deals.
Which is your favourite brand of pushchair & do you prefer the side by side or the tandems?
