Spanish company Jané is known for its innovation and high-quality products.  Their newest lightweight twin pushchair, the Twone has been specifically ‘designed for families planning on having two children, expecting twins or a second baby’. It is easy to convert between a single and a tandem and can use any combination of seats – two car seats/carrycots, two pushchair seats, or one of each.

Was it easy to install?

When the Twone was delivered in two largish boxes, I presumed that something had been forgotten. Before opening them I didn’t believe that the pushchair that promised to ferry two children around would arrive so compact.

Sitting on the floor of my hallway with four-month-old Hector sleeping in my lap I began to unpack the boxes. Once I had transferred the sleeping baby into the carrycot (suitable from birth), with two-year-old Rose ‘reading’ the instructions for me, I managed to assemble the whole buggy in less than fifteen minutes.

What’s in the box?

  • Chasis frame
  • Seat units (front and rear)
  • Bumper bar
  • Removable mudguards
  • Hood
  • Storage basket

What are the optional accessories?

  • Koos group 0 Isofix car seat – £145
  • Pram bag – £59.99
  • Rain cover – £35.99

How was your first outing with the Twone?

Once I had negotiated our shingle drive – which was a little difficult, due to the small wheels – the Twone glided along nicely. It was light, the handlebar comfortable and easy to steer one handed. Hector was happy that he could look around (the carrycot isn’t quite as tucked away as it is on many of the other double decker pushchairs I’ve seen or used) and I was pleased that he was able to lie flat. 

Setting out for the train, Rose sitting at the front and Hector lying flat underneath, I noticed I had nowhere to store the changing bag (when used with two children, the basket at the bottom of the Twone isn’t accessible) and there was no rain cover.

Is it easy to steer?

Yes – getting the pushchair onto the train proved easy.  Being so lightweight, wheeling it around a busy high street and in and out of shops doors made shopping with two children almost enjoyable. 

What was it like getting the pram in and out of the car?

Going to our local lake meant I had to dismantle the buggy, which was easy, no special knack needed.  Both seats clip off easily and the frame folds separately and packed into the boot of our car.

The transporter carrycot doubles as a car seat, which allows valuable boot space for all the parenting essentials: nappy bag, food shopping and scooter.  It is also useful when travelling on long journeys, because as all parents are aware, newborn babies should ideally lie completely flat. 

Although the carrycot goes up to 12 months, the reclining position cannot be adjusted and you will more than likely also need the Koos group 0 car seat, to see your baby through to 9 months.

Can the Twone be used as an ‘off-road’ buggy?

Not really.  Once at the lake, putting the buggy up was as easy as taking it down. However, the small wheels, on the muddy terrain, were not as effective as some other buggies on the market that boast large rear wheels for ‘off-roading’, but they weren’t bad.  Saying that the frame is the perfect width for carrying scooters when little legs get tired and want to sit back in the buggy.

If I’d known about this product before I had started my family, it would have been my first purchase. It really delivers on flexibility – being great for one baby and adapting when your family grows. The carrycot, which is also a car seat, is a great feature and a good money saver. It looks good and feels sturdy without being cumbersome.
