The Bebecar One&Two buggy is eye catching and supremely comfortable for babies and toddlers alike. However, it’s not ideal for town or city mums.

The Bebecar One&Two is flexible – it can work as a double pushchair and also as a single buggy. It can be a travel system for one or two, if you purchase the Bebecar EasyMaxi car seats. It can also work as a double buggy for twins from birth as both seats can lie flat. It can accommodate a toddler and a newborn, with one lie-flat carrycot being able to be attached if you wish.

The £928 price tag gets you the chassis, adapter and the two lie-flat reversible seats. The optional extras do add up – the footmuff is £45, the carrycot is £199 and the EasyMaxi car seats are £149 each. In the Privé fabric, the price is higher still.

This sophisticated, expensive piece of kit features lockable swivel front wheels, and the large wheels are easily removable. The wheels feature ball bearings, which is said to make for a smooth ride and extend the life of the tyres. There is the ‘rolling system’, which means you can remove the seats easily, and the handle height is adjustable. Being a tandem, the Bebecar One&Two is long rather than wide – at 62cm it may make it through many doorways, but still measure up before you buy.

I tried out the One&Two as a double buggy for siblings, with my 2-year-old Beatrice and 6-month-old Florence.

What we love

We got a lot of positive comments whilst out and about with the One&Two. The double buggy reminded a lot of people of the old-fashioned Silver Cross vintage prams.

The seats are very comfortable and chic looking with their smart black lining. More importantly, they look inviting for little people!

This One&Two seats are also reversible. In one set-up, both children can face each other – an opportunity for interaction between children on the move. You can also have the seats both forward facing, or have the rear position facing you and the front position facing forwards.

What to watch out for

This may not be the perfect double buggy we’ve all been waiting for.

Initially the Bebecar One&Two took about an hour to assemble from start to finish, which is too long in my opinion.  

The base is too long, too heavy and too tricky to steer. In the part of London where I live, there are cobbled streets and narrow pavements aplenty – not to mention the fact that everyone is in a rush. In short, this is not an accommodating environment for the large Bebecar.

Another problem was that it is quite tricky to fit a taller toddler into the seat. My daughter Beatrice, 2 and 4 months, is blessed with long legs. However, strapping my baby in was a much easier task.

Then there’s the expense – it comes in at just under £1,000. Ouch.

Who is the Bebecar One&Two buggy best for?

For country parents-of-two after a stylish comfortable solution for pottering about in.

Made for Mums verdict

Bebecar has manufactured a very roomy, luxurious buggy for twins and siblings. For those in the country, where space isn’t at a premium, it could be a flexible option to get around in. However, it is just too cumbersome for a city-dwelling mum.
