Top double buggies with a fuss-free fold

If you’re in and out of your car a lot, on and off public transport regularly or always collapsing your buggy to save space at home, then ease of folding is one buggy feature you need to pay attention to. A difficult or fiddly folding mechanism will annoy you at the best of times, but when there are two little bodies in the equation – probably running in opposite directions if they’re toddlers – the last thing you need is a pushchair that requires the skills of an origami master. Buggies aren’t always cheap, and when you fork out your hard-earned cash, you deserve a product that works the way you need it to.

iCandy Peach Blossom 3, £1180

Adding the buggy seat units or carrycots is simple, and there’s a one-handed seat removal system using a large grey button on each side. This feature is really an essential because you need to remove the seats to fold the buggy flat. Our reviewer found the distinctive design, ease of use and high resale value well worth the investment.

Phil & Teds Verve Inline Double, £678

What makes the Verve Inline Double stand out is the ability to fold the chassis into an impressively compact package with the second seat still attached, according to our MFM reviewer.

It’s got 23 riding options, one handed double-kit seat recline, light to push with one hand and looks good to boot. While there are several stages to the collapsing process, ease of folding/unfolding is still rated 4.5 out of 5, and what you get at the end is a double buggy that’s 27cm in width and able to stand alone.

Maclaren Twin Triumph, £250

Weighing an amazingly light (for a double) 10.6kg, the Twin Triumph – just like  Maclaren’s single buggies – boasts a fast one-hand umbrella-fold. As well as being light and easy to fold, the Twin Triumph is compact, fitting easily through most doorways.

Our reviewer described the fold as “simple, quick and easy” and scored it five stars.

Graco Stadium Duo, £138.99

With its budget price tag, you can’t expect lots of flashy luxuries, but the Stadium Duo is a good basic all-rounder. Graco hasn’t sacrificed your child’s comfort or key features. This tandem is easy to fold, due to a twist mechanism on the handle. This can even be done single-handed after some practice. Once folded, an automatic storage lock clicks into place.

Chicco Echo Twin, £129.99

At £129.99, the Chicco Echo Twin is one of the cheapest lightweight double buggies on the market but is robust and durable.

Our reviewer described the umbrella fold as ‘great’, and noted the one-handed fold was easy to use, while the carry handle on the side of the buggy made the Chicco Echo Twin easy to pick up once folded.

Graco Ready2Grow, £299.99

Despite being a buggy that can take up to three children, the Graco Ready2Grow is so easy to fold you can even do it one-handed!

And our reviewer found this versatile and affordable buggy is equally as easy to open up again, as it effortlessly clicks back into place with a simple storage strap. It also stands nicely by itself when folded, providing quick and easy storage, although its bulk means it still takes up a lot of space.

Joolz Geo, £999

At the top end of the market, this is an expensive option, but well worth the investment. Our reviewer loved that it’s really easy to collapse. The chassis can be folded with the main seat, shopping basket or even with two seats (but not the carrycot) attached. And it only takes a matter of seconds.

However, it’s worth noting as you have to pull both buttons simultaneously it is a two-handed job.

Mountain Buggy Duet, £579

Featuring a one-handed fold, our reviewer found the Duet is quick and easy to collapse – you simply pull a lever under the seat unit and it folds down in one easy motion.

The updated version of the older Duet, this two-seated, side-by-side pushchair is different as it is virtually as slim as a single buggy, and at 63cm wide the Duet boasts that it can fit through most tight spaces.
