Double Pushchairs – The FAQ’s

Finding the right double pushchair for you and your kids can be an exhausting process and if you have two small children the last thing you need is more exhaustion! There’s a lot of choice out there and a decent pushchair will cost a fair amount of money so you want to get it right first time. Get the right product and it will serve you well. Look after it and you can even pass it on to another parent when you’ve done with it.

In this article we will look at some of the most frequently asked questions that arise when you’re buying a double pushchair for the first time and I trust the answers will set you on your way to buying one with confidence.

Question 1 – What safety features should I consider?

Well the industry is pretty well regulated but it doesn’t hurt to make sure the brands you are considering all meet standard safety specs. Beyond that there are some simple safety features to consider. Is the pushchair equipped with 5 point safety harnesses? Is the breaking system convenient and secure and does the chair have sufficient padding and support.

Question 2 – Should I focus on finding the most light weight double pushchair?

Unless you’re built like an ox then weight will certainly be an issue as you are now pushing two children and clearly you don’t need too much more physical exertion in your life. Having said that you should first consider the type of day to day use you will get out of the product. If you need to continually take the pushchair in and out of the car or up and down steps the focus on a lightweight model. If going out and about on rough terrain in the country is more likely then sacrifice lightweight for something more robust.

Question 3 – Should I buy a Tandem or Twin Pushchair?

Do you want your kids sat side by side or one in front of the other? Two answers to this really. If you want your kids to interact more easily then side by side is good. Your other main consideration is your environment again. Clearly a twin pushchair is wider and this may be a hassle in tight spaces, like in a busy city or out and about in the shops.

There are, of course, other questions to be answered regarding price and style but getting to grips with the questions above should help you narrow down the choice. If you need more information about double pushchairs in France then please visit PoussetteDouble.Net
