A Guide To Twin Pushchairs
If you are expecting twins or a second child then you may well consider a twin pushchair. As with the single pushchairs many of the same points need to be considered, weight and size being the two most important. Within the twin pushchair market there are two options either "twin" where one child sits next to the other or "tandem" where one child sits in front of the other.
Tandems prams are very popular at the moment and the more modular system has taken over as the main style of tandem. These modular systems do allow a greater degree of flexibility and are ideal for parents who are expecting a second child. The flexibility lies in its ability to convert from a twin into a single ideal for when your toddler begins to walk more often. Many of these tandems offer carrycots and parent facing seat units. Our most popular tandems are the iCandy Peach 3, the Baby Jogger City Select and the Oyster Max. All are excellent and have their benefits, we would be happy to demonstrate these products in our Bristol showroom.
