How did this product make your life easier?

Hamza: As a childminder having a push chair that's lightweight and easy to use is very important. After using my side by side triple pushchair for 6 months (And nearly killing my self in the process!) this double out n about double pushchair is so much better. I also brought the xrider to make it a triple as and when needed. It's the easiest buggy I've ever built and didn't need instructions. Excellent quality and best of all so light! The pushchair came with a rain cover which I also didn't expect. I didn't buy the basket as it has 2 seperate pull string baskets/pockets at back of each seat so there's already plenty of room for shopping. The children seem to love the new buggy and even thiugh the seats don't look wide they are- nice deep seats which help keep them cosy in the winter. Would highly recommend and worth every penny.

Alexandra: This is a great double buggy, it is lightweight, easy to put up and down. It is also narrow enough to get through most doorways. Big wheels mean a comfortable ride for the little ones. It comes in nice colours, I particularly liked the Navy with two boys. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to put the seat pads on and off for easy washing/cleaning. I like that it is easy to adjust the height of the chair to whatever little person requests! My two-year-old enjoyed the foot rest and thought this was a nice feature rather than feet just hanging. I also was pleasantly surprised by all the bits which are included with the pram including a bumper bar for the children to hold onto and a waterproof cover. This pram arrived and was very easy to set up, I used the instructions but probably could’ve got away without them as it is very intuitive to put together. Great that this pram can be used from birth to 4 years old meaning you only need one and not lots of additional pieces.

Charlotte: I'm actually obsessed with this pram. I have 2 young children and I'm a non driver and it's actually opened up what I can do significantly. I have had a double buggy previously and it was heavy, clunky and not very easy to open or close and not cheap so I'd just accepted that with 2 children it was going to be the case that it's much harder to get around. Then I started using the out n about double nipper and it is really fantastic. It's so light the thought has actually crossed my mind that I could go running with this pram (and my children are big for their ages so that is saying something!) It has certainly allowed me to take much longer trips without stress or feeling like I have had an all body workout. It also tackles rough terrains easily. It stores away easily because it closes extremely flat so doesnt take up as much room as my previous double buggy. It's also very easy to open (and close but especially to open).

Would you recommend this to other parents?

Mia: I would recommend the Out 'n' About Nipper Double to a friend for various reasons. It is suitable for all ages which means I can get a lot of use out of it. The buggy is very easy to push despite its size and has a good suspension so when ‘off-road’ it still feels smooth for baby and child. The fold is easy once practiced and it’s very handy that the wheels can be ‘popped’ off to fit into the car boot.

Holly: I would recommend this because it fits through most standard doors which I was surprised with with it being a side to side. I also would recommend it because it’s very nice to push, you can tell the difference that the tyres are air filled, for me and for my children, it gives the base more buoyancy especially going up kerbs or in the park/forest. I also like how it has a sturdy footrest as in previous prams I have never had this and little feet have been stuck or not well supported.

Sarah: The product is really easy and convenient to use. I really like the adjustable handle which can be adapted easily for both my husband and me who are very different heights. It is really easy to move and provides a great level of movement not just forwards and backward but also side to side. The range of storage options is incredibly useful, and the ease at which the pram moves around across all types of terrain are huge positives. It's well made, really robust and both my girls are comfortable in it for long periods of time. I'd definitely recommend it.

Would you choose this product above all others on the market? 

Holly: I have looked at many double prams and this one is definitely at the top of the list for me. The only thing that initially put me off was the price but after using it for multiple weeks in different settings I have realised that extra cost is there for a reason. I would like it a bit cheaper (who wouldn’t) but the fact it is so sturdy, so easy to push, makes journeys pleasurable with little stress can even push with one hand sometimes when needed - I’m not sure if this is down to the fact the front of the pram has an aerodynamic shape and the tyres are air filled. But it’s just lovely.

Alexandra: I did really enjoy this double pram but I think this depends on lifestyle whether this one or another one is better. It is relatively light weight with big wheels, suitable for most terrains which was great as we have a dog. Easy to pop the wheels off to put away or into the car. Also easy to lock the front wheel. I really liked that this had big wheels suitable for off road and easy to manoeuvre the pram around even with two little people inside.

Charlotte: Yes, I would most definitely choose this above other prams on the market for many reasons. Firstly and the biggest reason for me as a non driver is how light it is. I walk a lot because I don't drive and with my previous pram the treck to town and back would fill me with dread because it was heavy and clunky. However, now I have absolutely no thought about it. I can literally push this pram with one hand, even with the two kids and lots of bags and shopping added to the under basket or hanging off a bag clip. It makes little difference to the weight because of the air filled wheels. Secondly, it is very easy to open. I tried to do this with one hand whilst holding my 5 month old son and managed it without stress. Thirdly it closes very neatly and flat so is very easy to store. I have stored mine under my stairs. Fourth it can be easily used in rough terrain, I've taken this pram to farms and parks and wooded areas with no difficulty.

What changes would you make to this product?

Mia: One thing I may change about the Out 'n' About Nipper Double is that although I like that the seating is generous, maybe some consideration to it fitting through a standard doorway would be possible, as although I could get it through my front door, I couldn’t get it through a standard house door due to the back two wheels. This would be beneficial for times my baby was sleeping and I didn’t want to transfer them elsewhere but still keep them in sight.

Holly: I’ll be honest I did struggle to put it down, the instructions did explain but I had to work out that the front wheel couldn’t be locked to fold it efficiently. It was a bit of a struggle at first but now I know how to do it, it’s not as bad although is slightly fidgety to do so. The only other thing I’d change (if I could choose whatever) would be to get free accessories such as footmuffs, maybe even a drinks holder, but I do accept these can be bought separately - just I think as a mum to a toddler and a newborn the last thing I want to be doing is shopiping for extras.

Sarah: It is really hard to criticise a product which really is great. The only thing I would say would be that it is quite large so I struggle to get it in my car, having said this, it is a double stroller so it is bound to be bigger than a regular stroller! Plus, it does fit in my husband’s car so it isn’t an issue if we’re all heading out for the weekend.
