Appalling - nearly tipped over. Do not buy!
on 23 March 2014
I bought this as a replacement for another, equally long and heavy American front to back buggy that I've used happily (and with no incidents) for the past 5 years. (I am 5 foot 5, and weigh 8.5 stones)
I had high hopes for this buggy. Unfortunately, I only managed to get a few feet from my front door when it tried to veer down the camber of the pavement and into the road. I struggled to get it back into the correct position, almost putting my back out in the process. The next time it tried to veer towards the road, I steered in the opposite direction to correct it. To my horror, both wheels on one side lifted off the ground and the buggy almost tipped over with two 18 month-olds in it. It only went in a straight line with the front wheel locks applied, which made negotiating bins etc. in our path virtually impossible without lifting the back of the loaded buggy up - more a job for a strongman than myself.
Not only that, but it doesn't have a support stand when you are storing it. Standing at almost 6 foot high and weighing about 3 stone, I had to tie it upright to a cot behind a secured door to stop any children trying to untie it, as I feared that if it fell on a child, it could badly crush them.
A nightmare all round! I have sent it back.
