At a glance:

The only tandem to offer true face-to-face interaction for children, the multi-award-winning ABC Design Zoom continues to be one of the ultimate systems for twins. The pushchair provides unrivalled seating configurations using seat unit and optional carrycots and car seats, SPF 50+ hoods with zipped extensions and coverable parent windows plus a range of co-ordinating accessories available featuring the universal attachment system for quick and easy securing.

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Emma: I would recommend this product to everyone. It's good for going to the park, for long walks and the shops because you can turn it very easily. I love this buggy as a mum of two.

Lauren: I would recommend the Zoom Tandem to other mums as it is very well made and sturdy. I love the design and how comfortable the seats appear to be. My little one had no issue falling asleep and snuggling into the padded seat. The huge basket is also a big YES for mums. I was pleasantly surprised at how compact this pram is when folded down. This makes transporting the tandem in a car boot easy.

Rachel: I would highly recommend this to a mum who either has twins or children close in age. Although there are other prams out there I felt this was easy to compact and move around. Some double buggies are very bulky and have lots of different compartments which is irritating.

How did this product make your life easier?

Georgia: Being able to leave the house with two children in one pram has made my life so much easier in many ways. The design of the pushchair not only means that both children can fit comfortably in the pram but they can also have their own individual space without being in reaching distance to disrupt one other. This will benefit mothers of two.

Emma: I have fallen in love with this product. I love its movability and it is absolutely excellent for getting around the shops. The children fit in perfectly and I can keep an eye on the baby facing me. It makes my life as a mum absolutely brilliant.

Lauren: I often babysit my nephew as well as taking my own child out on shopping and day trips. The Zoom Tandem made this so much easier for me because it was not as wide as a double buggy and I did not feel I had to squeeze through crowds and narrow aisles. Both children still had plenty of space.

Would you choose this product to win?

Rachel: Yes I would. Despite the prams size, it is easy to compact and we could fit it in our small car or store it in our house without the need to take anything off. A lot of prams have different sections and you have to take them off in order to collapse it which takes up more room.

Georgia: This is best double pram that I’ve come across. I put it together quickly and found it easy to dismantle. It may have a bigger frame than some prams but this is positive as it gives me confidence that the pram is sturdy and versatile. The appearance of this pram is a key selling point for me. The modern design is aesthetically pleasing whilst also being practical. The majority of the pram is adjustable - the footstools, the handlebar and the seats themselves. Everything reclines or moves ensuring the pram is suitable for everybody.

Emma: I would choose this product because I absolutely love it. It is quite long but that doesn't stop you and you can easily take it anywhere and everywhere!

What changes would you make to this product?

Lauren: Although this buggy folds up quite compact, given the length of the Tandem and that the wheels can be taken off, I wasn't impressed that to do so both seats had to come off. This makes it a little more difficult to transport it in a small car. However, this product delivers comfort, manoeuvrability and ease when transporting two children of different or similar ages.

Aimee: Air vents in the hoods, the ability to have both children's seats facing each other without having the bottom of the second seat almost hitting my other child in the face and a better turning circle. I think the issues were due to the length of the buggy and I found it hard to control because of this.

Rachel: I don't think I would change anything. It was easy to compact fairly straightforward. I did not try the rain cover as we had such nice weather. The only thing I would change is the brakes. I felt it was in a bit of an odd place and sometimes was hard to stretch my leg to get to it. Other than that I have no complaints.
