In a nutshell

A stylish, practical side-by-side twin 3-wheeler that’s easy to push and ideal for different ages. With a reasonable price tag, its width means while great for those who walk, it's not for those always catching buses.

The Baby Weavers Baby 2 Twin Pushchair offers a side-by-side ride for babies and toddlers, whether they’re twins or siblings, and is suitable from birth to 3 years. Despite the modest price tag, it’s a sturdy double that comes with a great package of accessories.

Kiddicare’s own-brand, Baby Weavers, aims to deliver baby essentials at an affordable price, without compromising on quality. The Baby 2 Twin Pushchair is a great example of this – while the RRP is listed as £299.99, at the time of review, Kiddicare’s price tag was £179.99. A bargain.

Aesthetically, the Baby 2 Twin Pushchair competes well with pricier brands as it comes in stylish lava black or grey spot design. Luxury fleece footmuffs are included, along with a PVC raincover. Seats can recline into multiple positions – and there’s no problem working the two sides independently to make both passengers happy.

What we love

With a toddler coming up to 3 and a newborn, I’ve thought long and hard about whether to go for a double buggy or not. And what type. Having had one baby with a nosy nature, I’d feel sorry for my rear passenger if I used an inline tandem, as they wouldn’t get to see much action.

The side-by-side aspect really works for us, and it’s a relief to see that the two seats in the Baby 2 Twin Pushchair are completely independent, so you can recline each child into a variety of positions. A simple toggle, rather than any complicated recline mechanism, makes it quick and easy to please those onboard.

In the past, when pushing an inline tandem style double buggy I found the weight a struggle. So I imagined this one would be heavy too, but I was pleasantly surprised. It’s not much more effort than pushing a single. The 11-inch tyres really help, and they make for a smooth ride that’s easy to steer, whether it’s on the streets or through the park.

With two little ones and twice as much stuff, the basket underneath comes in very handy – it holds loads. The detachable bumper bar is at a good height to hang toys and distractions on, and I feel confident that both passengers are strapped in securely. I can also keep an eye on them and have a chat by leaning over the top.

The luxury cosytoes gives it a warm and snugly feel, and the raincover is easily handled. Even my hard-to-please toddler gave it the seal of approval, asking to get in rather than walk. Phew!

What to watch out for

It’s wide. Though this can of course be a drawback with many side-by-side buggies. I can’t quite get the hang of getting the Baby Weavers Baby 2 Twin Pushchair through doors without a fight.

Shops are a problem, too, and I’ve only attempted one bus ride due to the sheer panic of how I was going to get it off again. That said, if you’re walking everywhere and are using it to go the park and open spaces rather than shops, the Baby 2 Twin Pushchair does the job.

I wouldn’t expect a double buggy to fold as easily as a single, and this did take two hands – one to press two buttons and the other to pull the trigger. In the end, I stopped bothering and annoyed the people in the flat downstairs by blocking the hall. Not ideal!

Who is the Baby Weavers Baby 2 Twin Pushchair best for?

Mums who love a bargain and do a lot of walking, rather than depending on public transport.

MadeForMums verdict

If you don’t mind going wide, the Baby Weavers Baby 2 Twin Pushchair is great for the price. It’s sturdy, stylish and comfortable for babies and toddlers, but not for those reliant on public transport.
