The Best Buggies for Twins

With George and Amal announcing their adorable boy/girl twins it had us chatting about double buggies – and which option the celeb couple might plump for.

Bugaboo is normally the A List choice, but the Donkey double format isn’t for everyone as it is definitely an urban option and doesn’t hold a huge amount of shopping. However, they could customise the bassinets in Bugaboo’s fab colourways and the format is compliant with seats and carseats also – so they could mix and match. RRP £1329

Not that ‘economical’ is likely to be a word used in the Clooney household but we love the cheap and cheerful Joie Aire Double Stroller in pink and blue, RRP just £145.

 

 

The quintessentially English Silver Cross brand recently added the Wave system to their range, which offers 16 combinations of seats, carrycots and carseats. It comes in some super classy shades – we love the claret colourway. RRP £995 for the basic option.

Phil and Ted are so often the go-to for active parents wanting a buggy that they can yomp up a mountain with. The downside is always that one child goes underneath, which is fine when one child is older but possibly less democratic with twins.  (Pictured is the Verve, RRP £549)

Or for the seriously sporty, the Britax BOB Revolution SUS has rugged tyres and a fixed front wheel option for faster speeds; suitable for jogging or skating. It’s not light (that’ll be the state of the art suspension) but presumably Clooney won’t be having to haggle with Ryanair about weight allowance any time soon… (The model pictured is on offer through Amazon at £279)

#BritaxChildSafetyWeek Q&A

If you missed the online Q&A hosted by Britax and ‘s Louise Nicoll last night (our excuse: vintage AbFab on Netflix) then you’ll have missed their insight into car seat safety as part of Child Safety Week.

If your own safety know-how extends to strapping ’em in and ignoring any pleas from the back seat to drive like Lightning McQueen, then a quick skim through @BritaxUK twitter feed might shed light on a few subjects… Such as the rules about car seats on the front seat, whether you should take your own on a coach journey – and there are a few tips thrown in about passing the time on long car journeys.

We’re actually especially impressed with the Britax range for older children – including the Kidfix models which come in a whole host of bright colours and really don’t look like ‘baby seats’ at all. Possibly a solution if (like many) you moved your child into a booster seat before the law changed and now need to cajole them back into a full car seat again…
