I bought the v6 sport because of the high seat back as my son had outgrown his UppaBaby. I was going to say that the Sport is poor by comparison to the UppaBaby, but actually, the the Sport is terrible generally. It extremely awkward to manoeuvre, corners terribly - there is a real risk of tipping over - and has limited storage. The seat back is difficult to raise/lower and will slide down from the upright position despite all clips etc being fastened and generally it does not feel sturdy. Lastly, the front wheel has punctured twice on city footpaths in 3 months despite very limited usage (because we so dislike using it). I cannot imagine a worse buggy. Buy literally any other buggy instead of this.
Purchased in for $659.
Perfect travel pram
This pram is great. Have been using since my daughter was 8 weeks old as my travel pram. Good price and has all the necessary features. I am quite tall too and the handle bar is a good height. Fits in the luggage compartment on board the plane, no issues. My little girl seems happy and comfortable in the pram. So easy to open up and fold down. Very light! Very happy with my purchase.
Purchased in at Baby Bunting Online store for $299.
So easy to use in single or double mode with good riding options for newborn and toddler. Great to use in town shopping or out and about.
Its easy to fold/unfold but is a bit heavy to lift into the car.
This pram is the 3 type i have owned and i think it will be my last. I am so happy with it.
Amazing! This buggy has been a life saver!
I bought my Phil and teds sport, second hand, to look at, it had been well used when I bought it. But needed to have a double As a spare. And it has become my main buggy because I love it So much!! We moved to cananda and it is amazing! On all torrain! It handles so well and is so smooth and easy to push. We walk for miles every day and this buggy has made it more enjoyable. The second seat is So easy and quick to click on and off. I just wanna thank Phil and teds! Their buggies are obviously very durable! As I said we bought it worn second hand and still not had a problem with it!
Robust, easy to manoeuvre, versatile
Robust - We bought our Phil and Ted's Pram in 2006 for my first child, knowing we would have more children and wanting to use the double kit. We used the pram for our three children and my sister is using it for her two children now. Except for some fading on the canopy and footwell and a little wear around the frame, it is still in excellent condition. We have changed the inner tubes of the tyres a couple of times after a trip through some prickles but that is the only maintenance it has needed.
Easy to manoeuvre - I find the handling of the ...
Best pram for two kids
I love my Phil n teds sport pram! Honestly, one of the best purchases I’ve made. Mine has lasted 10 years, through 3 children. It’s easy to use for one child and not bulky. Adding the second seat is very simple and the pram is still manoeuvrable. The quality of the fabric and frame is excellent. The pram folds up very compact for a 3 wheeler, however it’s a little awkward doing the actual folding. Be careful not to pump the tyres up too high, as the wheel rims get warped. But you need to keep the tyres at a decent pressure, to make pushing a breeze.
I initially didn’t like this pram when I bought it. It has its pros and cons, at the start I gave it a 2 star because it frustrated Me but I made changes to it that improved it a lot more.
Initially the lower seat wouldn’t recline and I found it hard to put my baby/toddler to sleep for long, so I replaced it with a seat that reclined. ( I have an older version hopefully the new versions give you that option already) The sun viser needed adjusting because it kept falling off but once It was fixed it worked great and I found it easy to push and g...
Really not too bad
I bought it for the double seats design,usually I use it for little son.Easy to maneuver,quality pram,convenient to fold unfold,but a bit of heavy for me to carry it from car before going shopping.When I want to use it for my little daughte(round 6 months),I find it's hard to keep my son(2 years) sit together.He feels uncomfortable at back seat.It's much better two way seats design,actually not practical for double.
Perfect pram as a single or double
I bought this pram for my 1st born 7 years ago and also had my other 2 girls in the same pram. They all used the same cocoon and same with the extra seat (double Kit) I had the unusual apple green and always got commented on it. it was a fabulous looking pram so very easy to push and turn i could get through the supermarket checkouts with easy as its narrow and the quality was superb. you can take the whole pram apart and put everything in the washing machine for me that's a winner :) its very easy to fold away and to set up. i would highly recommend this pram to anyone.
Great little jogging pram
Reasons why I bought this stroller:
1. It was relatively light so I could throw it in the car without breaking my back.
2. It folded down to fit into my car with one seat folded down as I drive something the size of a mini cooper and it has zero boot space.
Reasons why I liked this stroller:
- There are lots of sit up and lay flat options which I would use depending on if the little one was tired or needed to go to sleep.
- You can steer it with one hand if you want to which is good if you have to steer a corner and hold the hand of a s...
Best item we ever bought for our kids
It's just a terrific transformer! Bought in 2008, we moved all of our three kids around the city with this one - going to all the stages (from 1 infant > 3 kids). And yes, in later years, sometimes all of our three kids would climb on top (one sitting in front, mostly!). And sure, often there were tons of groceries down below as well - it survived it all. The thing is, it's made from steel, which might look less sexy to some (?) it sure beats most aluminum frames which are usually wobbly at the joints. You can easily buy this model 2nd hand in ...confidence. So it was our daily driver, we did all-terrain on holidays, used it a lot on public transport in our largish city (yes, its one of the few with a limited width to easily slides through bus and tram doors) and still folds down compact to fit your booth. I can honestly say it was the best thing we ever bought -the sole reason I write this review, as parents buy tons of things that afterwards turn out useless. While this stroller was mostly managed by my 54 kg wife, she agrees it maneuvers like a dream (for those who can't... !? try unblocking the front wheel) Speaking of wheels, still having our original tires in 2017... And it was really well-used (and yes, abused)... Admittedly no longer using it much since 2014, thought of giving it away. So today I took all soft parts off, did a 4 hour 40 degrees washing cycle - just mounted it all and ... looks like its ready to go again. Downsides? Would even prefer the classic over this one, the adjustable handle doesn't add much however it has lots of play which I find disturbing. And you might want to consider NOT buying a light color (we chose sand - and well, as I said, we used it well...
I wouldn't buy this pram unless you need a double
We bought this pram second hand as a double when our second child arrived. It seemed like a reasonably priced pram for the quality. It has done the job required but we don't love it.
It is heavy compared to the other prams we have used (baby jogger Citi mini gt, valco snap duo and maclaren).
It doesn't steer as easily as some other prams.
The adjustable clips to raise and lower the seat and extending irritating and hard to do up if the child is sitting in the seat.
The sun good is pretty useless
The brake is extremely stiff and not that easily to unlock.
It does have good basket capacity. ...
I bought this pram a month ago and am increasingly disappointed. I feel that for the price, the pram lacks a number of streamlined features that I would expect for value for money. The hood is difficult to adjust and requires a lot of force to pull up & down. It often becomes detached from the frame while doing this. Also, there is a gap at the back. There is no brake to control force when going down steep hills making walking in hilly terrain difficult. I frequently hit my shins on the metal part at the back of the second seat. The storm cover...does not fit neatly and snugly to protect the child on the bottom during windy wet weather. At €39 extra, this is disappointing. To fit the pram into my Toyota auris, I need to remove and re- attach second seat each time. This is fiddly and difficult to attach and remove.The pram is heavy to lift. Yesterday when removing pram from car, my finger became entrapped as pram opened and removed skin from knuckle. The only positive is that the pram glides easily over smooth, flat paths in town and both children are comfortable in the pram.
Fabulous pram and still going strong
My wife and I bought this pram just under 5years ago for my little boy and we are now using it for our daughter. Till now, this pram is going strong. It is very easy to navigate through tight areas but it has its limitation like many other prams. Overall, a great buy for 2nd hand pram.
Cons: we have had to repair the wheel twice now and I believe this is a common issue with this pram/model as I've seen others with similar/same issue. The foam bit on the handles are breaking/ripping a bit.
One and Only
I looked into strollers when we had our first in 2010, knowing we would have multiple children we wanted one that could hold two kids. We both love the Phil & Ted Sport Stroller and the different ways to set it up. We now have 3 kids and use it all the time. People always ask me about the stroller and can't believe we have two kids in it. I love the stroller. The only complaint I have is the rims on the wheels! The stroller was fine for the first couple of years but over time if you leave the stroller in the car on hot days the tires would pop....The rims are a bad design. Over 4 years we have had the same rims and looking into getting new ones. We have replaced the tire tubes a couple of times. Overall we love the stroller and take it everywhere we go. I know it will last for another couple of kids.

What reviewers thought
The pram is a good height, making it easy to manoeuvre. Reviewers found that their children seemed comfortable in the pram and it was very easy to open up and fold down. Double mode is also a convenient feature for riding with newborns and toddlers at the same time.
Some reviewers were not happy with the brakes which were very stiff and made going down hills quite difficult.
