The latest pushchair brand to throw its hat into the ring for the single-to-double buggy market is Nuna, with the launch of the Nuna Demi Grow today.
It follows in the footsteps of other pushchair brands, including iCandy, Bugaboo and Joolz, that have done the same.
The Nuna Demi Grow converts from a single pushchair into a double, for a second child or for twins and, according to Nuna, there are 23 possible configurations.
It has what’s billed as an all-weather seat, custom dual suspension, a height adjustable push bar and one-hand seat recline. Plus the marketing blurb says that the pushchair’s canopy, with its peek-a-boo window for keeping an eye on your little one, is UPF 50+ for sunny days.
With a starting cost of £600, it’s not cheap. Once we’ve fully tested the Nuna Demi Grow, we’ll be able to tell you whether we think it’s worth the money. Look out for the review soon.

Double buggy gripes
Opting for a double buggy is often the only way for parents to accommodate their growing family. But this style of pushchair not without their issues.
When we surveyed 400 parents in 2015 about their double buggy gripes, top of the list were:
- Double pushchairs can be very expensive.
- They can be big, bulky and heavy.
- They lack storage space when set up as a double pram or pushchair.
- There isn’t much choice of brands with double pushchairs.
Luckily, when we review double pushchairs, we check out these potential problems at our laboratory.
- We’ll tell you exactly what’s ‘in the box’ when you buy it, and what you’ll need to pay extra for (such as car seat adaptors or buggy boards), so you know whether you’re getting value for money.
- We take measurements of every double pushchair we test, including width, weight and how big it is when folded. And we check if you can fit the pushchair into the boot of a regular-sized car.
- We’ll also check how storage space is affected when you convert a regular pushchair into a double pushchair. We’ve found some models where the storage options become non-existent once you add the second pushchair seat or carrycot.
We also tell you how well a pushchair will fit into your life every day, how easy it is to push and highlight any potential pitfalls that could mean it won’t last as long as you want it to, or not make for a comfortable ride for your baby.
