    Review:
    This is what I call a white elephant purchase.
    I needed a double as I was pregnant and my then 2 year old was to small to walk long distances. As our budget was limited we were forced to purchase this cheaper alternative to the Jane.

    I should have known when it was delivered what we were in for. Boxed, it wouldn’t go through our front door and adjoining living room door!

    We unpacked it, assembled it and we were in complete awe of its size! It was absolutely massive. When the time came to use it I could have cried! First our newborn daughter had to be put in it inside the house, then we had to back it out of the door whilst lifting and turning, once outside then my toddler was strapped into the front seat. There was no way he could be strapped in and then safely reversed out!

    Good Points

    1 Large shopping basket
    2 Right of way is automatically given when pushing this buggy.
    3 Came with rainhood and cosytoes as standard.

    Bad Points
    1 Hard to steer
    2 Veers to the side.
    3 Basket is big but inaccesible, I ripped a nail off trying to put a shopping bag under there.
    4 The rubber on the handles was slippy and slimy when wet.
    5 The wheels are massive and get in the way.
    6 Virtually impossible to push with a growing toddler in the front, baby in the back, and shopping underneath.
    7 Doesn’t bump up steps or kerbs easily.
    8 The front hood wouldn’t stay put.
    9 The straps were too long in the back and too short in the front.
    10 It created an obstruction EVERYWHERE!

    Loathe to just throw it away I tried selling it on ebay and didn’t have a single bid. Then I tried giving it away and no one was interested! In the end I had to take it to the council tip as my son liked walking. I invested in a Boots Atlas buggy for my daughter which at

    Short Title: Heavy but workable!
    Review:
    I bought this pushchair after we’d tried a Maclaren Twin Traveller and just didn’t get on with it. The pushchair is very heavy, especially with a toddler in the front, but we didn’t find this a problem. It also has a very tall handle so wouldn’t be any good for shorter people. We started using this when my son was about 2.5 months old and he was absolutely fine in the back. I like that the footrest come up and attaches to the front seat, so the baby is protected from all sides. Now he is bigger he sits in the front seat which makes the pushchair a lot easier to push and steer.
    Good points of the pushchair are that the rear seat lies has multi position recline, my baby has always been comfortable in it. I like that the basket has a zip on the side so that it is easier to get things in, and I also like the small basket at the back underneath the rear seat, it’s very handy. The folding mechanism is easy to use but the clip that holds the pushchair closed has never worked for us. The pushchair is very heavy which can make steering difficult for some people, and also makes it sometimes difficult to steer or get up kerbs. Overall though I think for us the pushchair was ideal, and a very good price too!

    Overall Verdict: Disappointing
    Best Feature: The price
    Worst Feature: Most of it
    Review:
    We researched double buggies endlessly before deciding on the Cosatto Duo Traveller, in an ideal world I would have had the JAne Powertwin as it’s just gorgeous. But unfortunately money was an object and the Cosatto was all we could afford. I preferred the tandem style rather than the side by side as most of them appeared to be quite “strollerey” in design and some didn’t look suitable for a newborn. I also wanted something that looked quite robust and the Cosatto fitted that bill.
    To say that I’m not entirely happy with my Cosatto Duo Traveller would be an understatement. Where do I start, I have a 19 month old and she sits in the front of the buggy, therefore all the weight is at the front which makes it incredibly difficult to steer round corners or get up kerbs. My 7 week old sits at the back which doesn’t recline completely and he lays at a slight slant. There is some storage area behind his seat but you can’t get anything out of there once his seat is reclined! The rest of the storage is underneath and the poppers to undo that are so stiff that you practically break your finger trying to undo them. The raincover is very cheap in design and sticks together, also it doesn’t appear to cover my 19 month olds legs completely so therefore her feet seem to be getting wet. All in all I’m not impressed, the price is excellent, but as my mother always says “you get what you pay for”, my advice is pay a little more and get something else! harsh but true
