Three-wheel buggies may be nothing new, but this one offers something that others can only dream of. Anyone with more than one child will appreciate the innovation on offer with the ABC buggy – and those with twins and an older sibling will be over the moon. Designed and made in New Zealand by the father and son team that first produced the popular Phil and Ted’s all-terrain buggy, the ABC is not only a high-performance, good-looking ATB but also offers somewhere comfy for older children to sit. You can even fit two toddler seats on to the twin version, a revelation for those with larger families.
The toddler seat attaches to the top of the buggy, offering your passenger an excellent view of the world, and as he’s seated he’s less likely to be moaning and won’t hold you up when you’re in a hurry. The seat has its own safety harness, plus a rain cover, so it’ll be perfect for the English weather. The buggy itself will take a total weight of 45kg, including the toddler seat, while the toddler seat itself will take a little monster up to 18kg. The buggy has all the features you’d expect, including a lockable swivel front wheel, generous hood and ample shopping basket (this even zips up for security and protection from the elements). It’s not too hefty and while it’s never going to be the easiest buggy to take on a bus, it’ll be as good around town as it is on the rough stuff. If you’re going on particularly difficult terrain, use the Stability Kit to convert it into a four-wheeler (yes, they have thought of everything!).
Your toddler will love having the best seat on the street, and your baby can travel in comfort.
If you’re vertically challenged, you may struggle to see where you’re going with a toddler in tow.
