phil and teds

Post by AlyMcD on Sat May 01, 2010 12:41 pm

I know a few people on here have used this, is it any good? We looked at it last week at baby show and i've never been a huge fan before but I'm beginning to change my mind. What I liked about the one we saw was it can convert into a single for when baby's about 1 and Zoe's 3 and walking more or on buggy board.

Is it fiddly tho? Seems as tho it would be easy to break iyswim? hmmmmm

i love mine but its not been without problems just silly little thing like the zipper braking the basket trailing and rippping the only major thing i had with it was a bolt coming loose but i would buy another one my mam has even said she wants one for her childminding now after complaining for over a yr that she hated them lol

the say both seats do until 4 yrs not true the front seat does a child up to 55lb the back seat 35lb so if u have big babies u wont get the use of the back seat kaleb has been too heavy for the back for months but he had to use it over winter and it did pull on the buggy

a buggy board will not fit on the phil and teds as a single either


its easy to fold 2 clips need pulled out an its folded its much easy wen the removeable seat is on the front thou as u need to remove it to fold buggy wen its on the back has removeable wheels so its easier to fit into car boot etc

if u use a bus alot i would recommend the phil and teds i couldnt use any other double of public transport

i googled it hun lol some say it does fit but u need to walk to the side of buggy others say it affects the use of brake or brake needs removed

the phil & teds website says it can affect the break too

i personally wouldnt risk using p&t without a break

i swear by mine, i'd be lost without it!

i never liked the idea of them but after buying the silvercross pop duo and seeing kaden in it at just a few days old i hated it he looked like he was hanging, so went back to mothercare and tried a few other doubles and the p&t's won by miles, i've never had any problems with mine, my seat covers started to frey so took it back to mothercare and they sent it away to have all new coverings put on it without any hassle and p&t's are always really easy to help.

it's really easy to fold down and covert from single to double aswell and vice versa
