  • Double pushchairs for small budgets

    Having a baby can be expensive, and when you have two, it can feel like money just evaporates. Buggies are one thing it’s easy to spending many hundreds of pounds on, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Big name pushchair brands – such as Maclaren and Silver Cross – do offer value priced twin and tandem options, for those with twins or a baby and toddler.

    While cost is one consideration, there’s no point forking out on a stroller if it doesn’t do the job. With this in mind, we’ve hunted down 10 top double buggies that combine a low price tag with a good performance – if they haven’t scored well in our real-life buggy reviews, they don’t get a mention here!

    You also need to know whether a twin or tandem model will be best for you. Our double buggy buyer’s guide and advice for buying secondhand buggies safely are must-reads, too.

    A 3-wheeler twin buggy, the Petite Star Twin Charisma is good on some off-road surfaces, though not a true all-terrain pushchair (ATP). Suitable from birth, the seats can be reclined independently of each other. Another great feature is the roomy shopping basket, which is easy to get to.

    A lightweight umbrella-fold buggy, the Xoob2 Double Stroller is incredibly easy to put up and down. The seats are suitable from birth and can recline independently.

  • Cosatto Duet Lite Tandem, £200

  • Maclaren Twin Techno, £252

    Okay, okay, it is £2 over the budget we set, but this compact and easy-to-fold twin buggy is worth it. Both seats of the Twin Techno are suitable from birth, so it’s ideal for twins. On the other hand, the independent seat recline and separate hoods and footmuffs mean it can work for siblings of different ages.

    This twin buggy does have a higher suggested retail price (around £270), but hunting around reputable online retailers can see you bag it for less. We’ve found the Twin Techno for £252 at Kiddicare. This price is correct at the time of publishing, but obviously such good bargains do come and go (and prices rise and fall).
