2015 – Shortlisted for 'Best Multiple, Twin or Tandem Pushchair' Award!
The Baby Jogger City Mini Double is a good sized pushchair with spacious seats suitable for older toddlers as well as newborns. It’s sturdy and not too bulky although the extra width of the double chair means that it won’t fit through all doorframes.
It manoeuvres well, folds easily and both seats recline independently. The pushchair is quite heavy and takes up a lot of boot space. It also doesn’t come with any extras – a rain cover, in particular, is sorely missed. The handle is not adjustable and the ‘popper system’ is fiddly. The basket is a good size but difficult to access when the seats are in recline.
There is room for improvement but the pushchair is great quality and a double seat is convenient for bigger families.
2014 – Shortlisted for 'Best Multiple, Twin or Tandem Pushchair' Award!
Baby Jogger’s City Mini Double is nice and compact, with good manoeuvrability. The fast, flat fold is a great feature, as are the pockets on the back of the seats and the adjustable handlebar (even though it’s difficult to operate). The wheels are conducive to all types of terrain. It’s a solid pushchair that handles kerbs really well.
The Baby Jogger folds compactly and fits easily into a car boot. It comes with independent sun-hoods, which are massive – providing excellent weather protection. The seats are deep, with good recline and although the pushchair might seem wide, it fits well on all kinds of transport.
The storage basket is not very big and it’s difficult to access. The ‘throw over’ rain cover is not as simple as it’s made out to be and is a tight fit over the entire pushchair. The hand-operated parking brake takes some getting used to and doesn’t seem as convenient as the more typical foot brake.
It’s modern, stylish, comfortable, with convenient wipe-clean fabric...and it’s expensive – but certainly one of the best doubles on the market, working well with little ones of all ages.
Smart and sleek, this twin pushchair is an ideal choice for urban living with a quick fold and narrower than average width. Perfect for twins.
An ideal choice for city living, this narrow twin impressed our testers with its clever design and comfortable ride for both newborns and pre-schoolers. The City Mini looks stylish and modern with a super quick folding mechanism and the padded seats are suitable from birth.
The hood canopies provide excellent protection from the elements
The hood canopies provide excellent protection from the elements and shut out the light efficiently for naps. The design is slim enough to fit on a bus, but one of the downside is that the seats sink quite low so the children can hardly see each other. The rain cover is quite fiddly to attach too. The front swivel wheel is lockable though making it easier to push over rough terrain and there is lots of storage. An excellent all rounder and perfect for twins or children of similar ages.
