Pushchair first look video reviews Chicco Together
Chicco has just launched its first tandem pushchair in the UK – the Together. We've cast our critical eye over it to bring you our first impressions.
We haven't sent the Chicco Together to our lab yet, but you can take a look at our other Chicco pushchair reviews, such as the CTO.5 Twin Stroller.

See the Chicco Together in action in our first look video review:
The Together pushchair is the first tandem pushchair (one seat behind another) that Chicco has released in the UK, having previously focused on twin (side-by-side) double pushchairs.
We really liked the fact that you can also fit two car seats onto this pushchair, but like many tandems, it feels very long when you’re manoeuvring it.
Using the pushchair
Although this pushchair is quite a large so may not be ideal for tight spaces, but it is easy to manoeuvre. The back seat reclines flat, so is suitable from birth, while the front seat has two recline positions and is suitable from six months old.
The Chicco Together pushchair costs £299, and if you want to use it as a travel system with a car seat or seats, you’ll need to buy the Chicco 0+ Key Fit car seats separately, which cost £109 each.
We have tested over 100 child car seats, so make sure your baby is safe with the Best Buy car seat.
Easy to fold
We found this pushchair fairly easy to fold and despite being so big, it can stand vertically when folded, which is handy for storage.
There is a good-sized shopping basket under the seats, and this can still be easily accessed when the rear seat is fully reclined, as it has zip access at the back. It’s got two cup holders near the handle and a small compartment for your keys or mobile phone.
One downside to this pushchair is the brake pedal, which isn’t flip-flop-friendly. To take the brakes off you have to push up with your foot, which may be uncomfortable on bare toes.
Pros: Can fit two car seats, can stand alone when folded, good size shopping basket
Cons: Brake pedal isn’t flip-flop-friendly, like many tandems it feels long when manoeuvring
