    Ok this is a silly question but what does a toddler use an iPod dock for in their seat? Is it for music or connecting a DVD or something? And wouldn't it interfere with any music you're listening to in the main part of the car?

    We have a Phil & teds buggy sits 2. I go running with the girls in there. Best $ we spent and will get use out of now with baby no 3. May have to get new tires though as I love walking offroad ;-)

    I didn't realise a P&T was considered to not be quality?

    Thats the majority of what I've heard but the one I'm getting I'm not sure of as once baby grows out of the bassinet attachment the stroller can't be laid down too much at all so I'm not sure what to do in that in-between time. Little annoying.

    My kids can use an iPod touch/ iPhone and we have them (for adults) the speakers are right next to them so they can have it quiet and hear it and I barely do. It's also compatible with just normal mp3 players for just music if you would rather they not have iPod for movies/ games on long drives through no signal areas it can be a lifesaver car charger fixes the battery issues and it's so nice for them to just be quiet and focused they don't really use it in normal day to day trips though as there isn't much point for 15 min trip to the shops iykwim and it wasn't something I deliberately looked for it just came with the seats we had chosen for them

    I love my Phil and Teds. I still use it on long walks and DS is three. I consider them quality and I don't consider them cheap. I got my cot second hand on eBay and it was fantastic.

    I got mine for $100 secondhand, but we were looking at almost $800 for a new one.

    I brought P&T dash for just over $900 2 years ago that was with the 2nd seat... I didn't like that both seats couldn't lay down at the same time so went and bought a strider plus as they both could lay down together of need be.. It was about $300 cheaper but as much as I love it I think the p&t was better "quality" as such. P&Ts are much better off road than the strider too but in saying that I love my strider and will use it with next bubby too!!!
