Tandem Prams Buying Guide
Want to save some valuable space, money and time? Try investing in a tandem pram for your babies and your budget. These strollers , which are available in models that can accommodate two, three and even four children at one time, are great if you have a set of multiples or if you have more than one child that is toddler -aged or under. An older brother or sister can help keep baby entertained while sitting next to or across from his or her sibling, freeing up Mum's hands and mind. And what's more is that tandem prams, although larger and bulkier than single prams , are often still portable, coming in designs that fold and disassemble easily. The trick is deciding what accessories are essential to you--whether it's thicker wheels for tough terrain or multiple cup holders for drinks and snacks, tandems come in basic and full-featured versions. And once you find a pram that best fits your lifestyle, the rest is a walk in the park--literally! No more need for multiple sets of hands or more than one pram that can wreak havoc on your wallet and your closet .
Tandem prams come in side-by-side, in-line and face-to-face versions. Which style you pick is often a matter of preference, although some practical issues may sway your decision.
- If you're kids tend to annoy one another more than they play, you may want to opt for the in-line pram which gives each of them their own space. Just remember to switch up who gets to ride in the front, back (and maybe even the middle), so that everyone gets their turn with a preferred view!
- In-line prams are often harder to store than the other models, unless the seats can be detached and used in the car.
- If you want your kids to entertain one another, side-by-side and face-to-face prams both work well. Face-to-face prams allow the children to see each other while keeping a decent distance between them (good for avoiding poking and fighting), while side-by-side prams let the children both see each other and be close to one another, aiding in the sharing of toys and snacks.
- Face-to-face prams take up a lot of space and can be hard to store if they do not fold and collapse in the middle.
