Review: "My twin boys were born when my eldest was 11 months old. The T3 stroller was my lifesaver, without it I would have been housebound for months. My eldest loved sitting in the front seat. It is easy to push, fits through doorways and goes on all terrain. It is easy to fold into the car and for long journeys, the wheels can be taken off and the front seat folded to make it even smaller. The pram attracts a lot of attention wherever you go, my boys loved that!"

What to look for in a triple buggy
While your options may be limited, there are features worth looking out for to determine if this buggy is right for you and your babies.
There's no denying that triple buggies are hefty pieces of equipment, so it's essential your buggy folds down for storage. Different folds can include an umbrella fold, ideal for an instant collapse to fit on transport, or a more traditional fold that may take longer but is a stronger build best suited for long walks.
You'll be carrying three children, and that's pretty heavy cargo. Therefore, you'll want a pushchair that's lightweight and easy to manoeuvre. Triple buggies in the UK range from 17kg to 33kg. The Joggster Trio Triple Buggy comes in at the highest weight and will be heavier to lift in and out of a car.
This is a key consideration if you're looking to accommodate children from a range of ages, or get the most from your triple buggy. Whilst the majority are suitable from birth to three years old, you'll find some such as the Familidoo are suitable from six months and have upper weight restrictions.
Most triple buggies will have independently reclining seats which are crucial if you’re pushing a baby who needs to lie flat and a toddler who wants to watch the world go by. Seating positions can range from lying down to upright, with some settings in between.
To keep your little one safe and snug, a harness is needed in a buggy. The five-point harness is the safest and most secure. In different models, you can also find other safety features, including side protection, a bumper bar, reflector strips, head huggers, and more.
If you've got triplets, there are going to be plenty of baby travel accessories needed to keep them happy on the move. From bottles and toys to nappies, and then there's the space you need for your own supplies and shopping. Make sure your triple buggy has an ample under-carriage storage basket to meet your needs.
If you thought triple buggies were hard to come by in the UK, try finding a rain cover! For this reason, we'd recommend looking for those that come with a rain cover included. Doing this will prevent your little one from getting caught in a downpour and you the hassle of sourcing one independently.
Across these buggies, you'll see a complete range of seat positioning – do you want your little ones sitting side by side, one behind the other, or facing different directions? Some like the Joggster Trio Triple Buggy give you the option to configure this yourself, whilst the T3 Triple Stroller has a jockey seat for toddlers.
