Choosing a Twin Or Tandem Pushchair

It’s hard enough trying to pick and choose the right pushchair for a single child. You really are multiplying the problem by two when trying to decide on a double pushchair for two children. It’s even more important now to make sure you get the choice right and have all the special features you need especially if you have children of different ages.

Remember that twin pushchairs have your children sat side by side while a tandem pushchair they will be sat one in front of the other.

In order to help you narrow down the options there are some basic questions that you can pose which will help clarify what you need. In this article we will look at some of these questions in more detail and by the end you should be ahead of the game and on your way.

Hopefully top of the list of questions you should be asking is “how safe is this pushchair”? Make sure it meets all the latest safety standards and has five point harnesses to keep your children secure.

Next up is the size. What are the dimensions of the pushchair? Make sure it can fit easily in the places you need to go like your car, your front door and corridor or storage place.

How about storage space below or behind the pushchair? Your hands just got fuller with an extra child, you need all the help you can get. Do you need plenty of undercarriage shopping storage? I bet you do!

Do you need an all in one double travel system? With single buggies this is quite a popular and common feature whereas only a few double pushchairs offer this.

If you can make your mind up about the above options early on then it should be much easier to get a shortlist of products together which then means you can just focus on questions of style and price, which, let’s face it, is the fun part.
