Phil & Teds Verve Tandem Review by Leah
When I saw the new Verve pushchair from Phil & Teds at the Harrogate Trade Show I was totally amazed!
It is extremely well designed to transport 2 children.
There is a roomy padded main seat with padded harness straps and a large hood. And a 2nd padded doubles seat also with padded harness straps and a hood.
Fully adjustable soft grip handle bar and 7 different configurations!
As with most P&T’s, the Verve’s shopping basket isnt much use but you can add their Pannier bags for extra storage.
It weighs just 13.5kgs in doubles mode which is totally incredible and very light. It is easy to steer and lift up and down curbs though I was only able to try this empty i can see how easy it would be fully loaded.
Phil & Teds advise the doubles seat is suitable from 6 months however i would honestly consider putting a 3 month old in there as it lays pretty flat, and there is no awkward bar at the top which a child would bang their head on. The whole unit reclines in 1.
Also you can use it in the traditional Phil & Ted’s way by having your newborn in the lay flat main seat with the doubles kit attached to the front.
A maxi cosi Pebble or Cabrio fix can be attached to the main seat with the use of additional adapters and you can use the doubles kit at the same time.
There is also the 2 toddlers option with the doubles kit on the back, plus you can have a peanut bassinet on in single mode or lie flat cocoon in the main seat.
For me the best part of this pushchair is the incredible small fold. And amazingly the doubles kit folds within the pushchair!!!It is also free standing when folded.
It has 4 foam filled tyres for added stability, with suspension on the front 2.Each seat can take 20kgs weight, so thats a whole 44lbs on each seat!!Overall width 64cms.It is a very swish looking addition to the range.
It appears to address the issues of what to do with a baby who is too small for the normal doubles seat but doesnt want to lay flat. In fact the video P&T have on their site shows a small perhaps 3 month old in the doubles kit.
If you like the look of the Vibe you will LOVE the Verve.
