    Very happy with both, wanted a lightweight one as I would be walking a lot and using buses.

    Hi Dionne, it is Peg Perego, they are Italian, if you can find that one in England I would defintely recommend it. I went last October and couldn't find it anywhere, I was kind of hoping it would be cheaper. It only weighs 5.8 kilos.

    We are having this for our nw baby! I would have loved a cream pram but we have a 6 year old and thought it would get dirty when she is hold on or eating around it!

    how do u find it flossy?

    the one i have been looking at is the side by side one?

    is yours more practical do you think?

    iv heard they can be heavy to get up curbs with the older child in the frount?

    in my opinion i think that mine is practical as its a tandem its the same width as a standard pushchair on it goes easy through shop doorways as well as in and around shops too. my mate had a side by side one and when we went out one day on the train she had a hard job to get it through the doors as it being this type of double pushchair. i find that mine is extremely practical and is also very easy to manouver it is also very light to push too. this tandem i picked up off ebay for £40 as i couldnt justify paying alot of money for one as my little boy is nearly 2 and wont be wanting to be riding in it for very long before he decides he wants to walk everywhere. my msn is [email protected]

    we have an Aria for little trips (just the single) - it's very light but doesn't feel very strong, I don't think it will see the summer out.

    We've got a silver cross for bigger trips and we love it. Its just too heavy to bounce down the front steps when we're only nipping round the corner

    Dionne,
    What about a litaf buggy board. Its two tier so Dior can sit on it and have her feet on the step. Im not sure it would fit on the quinny though. Also, I got a double side by side stroller of ebay, new, for £109 inc postage. Its basic but quite funky and is a 3 wheeler style and compact. I cant get into ebay just now or I would post the link.

    we paid £99 for the Aria in Argos's post christmas sale, but it feels flimsier than the £30 buggy we had for Charlotte. The cup holder has already fallen off. I'd check out the double version before you buy - we didn't test before we bought it. It does it's job though, and the twin one might be stronger
