From acid brights to graphics that bring a smile to your face. We think these are top of the pops.
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)
The Bee5 is Bugaboo’s urban pushchair – built for mobility and created to an iconic design spec.
We love the understated elegance of the Tone, especially the lavender blue inner lining.
- Bugboo Bee5 in seat mode priced at £699
- Bugaboo Bee5 with carrycot priced at £808.95
Harrods will stock this buggy until the end of May, when it will be available through other selected retailers.
The Bugaboo Bee5 Tone is also available to buy from Bugaboo.com

Anyone else noticed the vogue for ‘classic chic’ when it comes to strollers at the moment? Sure, the colour pops of the likes of Cosatto are fun – but we’re loving the retro, timeless elegance of these ones at the moment:
Silver Cross Sleepover: the brand new model from quintessentially English but super-hip Silver Cross has really vintage styling, but with modern technology (such as a bamboo liner) your little one will sleep like a dream and you can use the carrycot for overnight stays… We adore the Mulberry colourway too!
Mamas & Papas Urbo2 in Tweed – Desert: even the most reluctant Dad will want to take to the streets with this one (perhaps ’round the country estate?) Again, the lie flat position promotes healthy sleep and there’s an insect net to fend off flying beasties as well…
Bugaboo Buffalo Classic Collection: this much loved model launches a heritage collection next month, available in navy blue or grey melange. It’s the latest incarnation for parents who want to rule the urban jungle as well as amble home from the country pub.
This model celebrates fifteen years of Bugaboo’s innovative legacy – team this one with the leather Storksak changing bag for ultimate paired-down sophistication.
