Badly designed - do not buy
When using with two kids (I have tried to use it with a two year old and a baby)
Combinations I have used:
Car capsule on top and second seat behind - you need to remove the material for the main seat or recline the second seat as otherwise the child in the second seat has the front seat in their face (10cm between their face and the front seat).
Baby laying down in main seat, second seat on top - will work when the baby is a newborn. Once they are about 3 months old, there is not enough clearance and your toddler will be sitting on them. Th...
Waste of money
Couldn't agree more with these reviews, this pram is useless for 2 children. I bought mine second hand and wish I never had! It's heavy, the roof is always coming apart, it has flat tyre after flat tyre, my toddler hates the 'second seat'- who wouldn't having the front seat pretty much touching his face, difficult to steer, no room for a bag or basket...the list goes on. Please, if you are thinking about buying this pram, ask yourself whether you love changing tyres, breaking your back after lifting it into the car, or continually fixing the roof/flap.
Baby underneath has very restricted space
Well what can I say? The dot seemed a very good idea as I have a 2 year old and a 8 week old so the thought of a pram so compact seemed very convenient... but when I put my new born on the bottom flat down and my eldest on the top in the attached seat my new born has very little space and is literally being crushed underneath. There is also velcro under the attachable seat which is dangers as the baby can get scratched luckily my baby is a winter baby so he's wearing trousers. Bottom line my child is pretty much sitting on my new born n he w...as only 4lb when he was born m only weighing 8lb now. I think they need to look into this as its defo not safe for a baby x easy to get on buses ect no room for new born. velcro under seat can scratch child and from reviews it already has.
Waste of money! Terrible stroller...
After having our second baby, it quickly became obvious that we needed a double stroller. We were very happy with our Quinny Buzz as a single stroller aside from the fact that it couldn't handle rougher terrain. The Phil&Teds dot seemed like the perfect alternative as it was able to accommodate 2 babies, still had the smaller size of a single stroller and could be used on trails.
Soon after purchasing the stroller, it quickly became glaringly obvious, how low quality it was. The harness, wheel covering, snaps attached to the frame broke and a ...

Navigator-complete disappointment, can't even use it.
I purchased this pram to use with my toddler and new baby, an upgrade from a previous Phil & Teds model. We used it for a few weeks before our baby wouldnt fit in the newborn section anymore, extensive communication with Phil & Teds customer service resulted in my baby girl grazing her leg on the sharp Velcro under the toddler seat, when advised by staff to use the pram (with the doubles kit at the front) with the base liner down. They also advised me that there should be no problem using the pram with my newborn in it, and I quote, with her ...legs in a "frog" like position!!! She's just worked out how to straighten her legs and screams hysterically when we go to put the toddler seat on as she is unable to move her legs. My baby outgrew it in a matter of a few weeks, and she was born 6.15 pound. So now I am left with a gap of a couple of months where I am unable to use the pram for my two children, for a number of months, into the baby is big enough to use the doubles kit at the rear. Had I known this, I would have bought an entirely different pram. I feel completely mislead by the marketing of this pram, and am extremely disappointed with Phil & Teds customer service, after spending almost $2000 on two prams unless than 3 years. I've gone from being someone who readily recommended the brand, to someone who will not only never recommend against the brand, ,but will never buy it again. A complete waste of $850.00 that could have been much better spent while on a maternity leave salary. My baby didn't fit in the newborn section within a matter of weeks (with the toddler seat on the front). Poor customer Service
