I bought this pram second hand from a friend who told us how fantastic it was. I now regret the purchase.
Positives: lots of head room for my todler
Negatives: pram tips back with weight in the todler seat when it is on the back
Not much space between the todler seat and main seat when todler sits at the front. The baby doesn't have much space.
The hood falls off and is hard to move.
when the todler seat is on the back the main seat can't be reclined
the lightest has to sit in the back and that seat can't be reclined.
the whole pram is flimsy and looks like it has been made cheaply
the brake is hard to engage, sometimes I think it has engaged and it hasn't.
not much storage under the pram
I wouldn't recomend this pram to anyone and I will never buy another Phil and Teds pram.
I was excited to get this pram and I had done quite a lot of research on the net and talking to people in-store. The reasons I choose this pram was because it has a second seat attachment and I plan on having children close together. I picked this pram over the strider because the wheel bases is narrower and I read a lot of reviews where people complained about the width of the strider base and not being able to fit through checkouts etc. I am however a bit disappointed with this pram.
Positives - The recline is very good. The turning circle is great. It is easy to wipe clean.
Negatives - The sun shade is a pain in the bum. It constantly falls off when you open and collapse the pram. It is very heavy and I find it difficult lifting it in and out of the car. It feels very unsturdy when you are walking on slopes. It is really expensive. There was a factory recall on the explorer because the brake was faulty.
If I had a choice to buy this pram again I would not.
