Phil and Teds has launched two new pushchairs in its ‘inline’ buggy series, which promise lots of adaptable features for growing families inspired by ideas from its customers.
Phil and Teds Explorer travel system
The Explorer is a tandem buggy designed to suit a growing family – from a newborn baby to two toddlers.
It’s designed to replace the Phil and Teds Sport. We’ve tested the Phil and Teds Sport as well as four other Phil and Teds pushchairs – find out they scored in our tough tests in our pushchairs review.
A major difference between the Explorer and the older Sport model is that you’ll be able to fit a child car seat to the front of the buggy and still carry a toddler in the rear seat.
It offers a ‘one hand fast-fold’ facility, is fully adjustable from flat to upright, and has a multi-position sun hood.
The Phil and Teds Hammerhead buggy
The Hammerhead buggy is a four-wheel stroller which Phil and Teds says offers the experience of an inline buggy, but with four wheels. It has two pivoting front wheels which Phil and Teds claims gives this buggy extra maneuverability compared to a traditional inline pushchair.
As with all Phil and Teds pushchairs the Hammerhead can take a second seat when your next child comes along.
It also has the one hand fast-fold feature, a larger follow-the-sun sunhood and a flip flop-friendly brake.
Which? expert view
According to Which? pushchair expert Lizzy Ruffles: ‘Phil and Teds is a very popular brand with families that are planning to have more than one child. The adaptable features and the ability to suit a family from the birth of their first child through to two toddlers make its pushchairs very flexible for growing families.’
‘But those planning to head out to the shops to buy one of these new pushchairs should be aware that they are often more difficult to push than smaller buggies, and can be difficult to get around tight corners on buses.’
