Whether you're preparing to welcome twins into the world or your family is growing and it's time to expand your pram collection, we've got you covered with some great options that won't break the bank!
 
As with any pram or stroller purchase, you should be clear about the features that are must-haves versus nice-to-haves and use these to make the best match to suit your lifestyle as possible. 

At Baby Village we offer personalised service and can take you through this process step-by-step. Even if you can't make it into store, we can help guide you through this important decision ~ make an appointment.

VALCO BABY SNAP DUO SPORT
Our opinion:
With the independent seat recline & canopy shades, plus the sports wheels that offer balanced suspension, this stroller is well suited to passengers of different weights; a newborn & a toddler. Our favourite feature for Mum is the rear storage pockets for the essentials; phone, keys, wallet!

MOUNTAIN BUGGY NANO DUO STROLLER
Our Opinion:
A great second pram option to keep in the back of the car, or for travel with two. We don't recommended it for heavy everyday-use as the wheels are small and not designed for extended use over varied terrain. While it's not newborn friendly out of the box, you can easily add a Cocoon or capsule using adaptors.

Features:
  • Lightweight at only 9kg
  • One-handed steering
  • Side-by-side independent recline seats
  • Only 73cm wide!
  • Adjustable leg rests
Drawbacks:
  • Not newborn-compatible
  • No peekaboo window
  • No rain cover or bumper bars included
Specs:
Age: 6mo+
Weight: 9kg
Width: 73cm
Seat Capacity: 15kg/seat


 
STEELCRAFT AGILE TWIN PRAM 
Our Opinion:
This is a great all-round everyday stroller with tons of inclusions. With stylish linen fabrics & comfortable, wide seats this stroller is a pretty packhorse. It's our pick if you've got a toddler with another baby on the way and need extra storage. Howevere despite the name, this stroller can't accommodate twins in capsules.

Best Suited For: Toddler & Newborn, Everyday use

Features:
  • Easy pull-up fold
  • Push-button independent seat recline
  • Large under-seat basket holds up to 6kg
  • Storage pockets on seat backs
  • Magnetic closures on peekaboo windows
  • Adjustable handlebar for parent comfort
  • Inclusions: rain cover, capsule adaptors, 2x child trays
Drawbacks:
  • Only holds one capsule
  • Buckles are a bit flimsy
Specs:
Age: Newborn+
Weight: 12kg
Width: 75cm
