  • Britax B-Dual

    Britax B-Dual, from £449.99


    Single pushchair with reversible seat unit, plus Britax car seat and raincover. Converts to inline tandem twin with second seat unit (+£99.99) and/or second car seat frame (+£49.99). From birth to 4y.

    Alison says:

    Our tester said adding a second seat made it quite long, plus it becomes pricey to add the extras.


  • Cosatto Ditto twin stroller

    Cosatto Ditto, from £185


    Umbrella-fold side-by-side design, suitable from birth. Seats have three independent recline positions. Raincover included, too.

    Alison says:

    A fun design! Our tester thought it was a great no-frills model, lightweight with a neat fold. Good, but not robust enough for a newborn.

    Always a reliable choice for parents moving up to a twin, our tester liked the fact that it fitted through doorways. A great price too.

    Six-position handle,one-touch brake mounted on handlebar, seat with recline and compact fold. Add double kit (+£109.95) for baby/toddler combo.

    Alison says:

    This is fab, but it's expensive, as without the double kit it's a singles model. But our tester fell in love with its sleek looks. The ride was very smooth too.

    Petite Star Charisma, from £199.99


    Three-wheeler all-terrain model with pneumatic tyres. Suitable from birth, one-hand fold, padded bumper bar and large basket. Two footmuffs and raincover included.
