Fabulous pram - LOVE IT!
Where do I start - this pram has been absolutely amazing. Ever since my 2nd daughter arrived, I couldn't wait to wrap her up snug in the duo bassinet (bought separately) which I had already set up right next to her big sister who loves being beside her baby sister. Having the option to add the bassinet is what sold me on getting this pram as I wanted to have my littlest one parent facing. I also loved that each seat had its own footrest too for extra comfort. I did a lot of research on double prams and kept comparing the duo to other side by si...de doubles, and tossing up whether to get a tandem. I had previously owned the snap ultra for my toddler so knew I loved Valco prams. The seat sizing is perfect for my 2.5yr old toddler and even my 5 year old niece has sat in it comfortably for adventures with us. I love the fact that the material is very easy to wipe over any marks or grubby finger spots, the sun hoods are fantastic covering well over my girls. My favourite aspect of the pram is the very spacious under basket which has the best access I've ever come across in prams. It is seriously huge and so handy. To fold the pram is super simple (one button press on the frame then a grab/hold handle button press) and it folds in half. The brake is easy, one simple tap of the foot (with and even without shoes which is good because some pram brakes are tough and can hurt your feet). The other handy feature is that each wheel comes off with the press of button making storage at home or in the car boot ever more straight forward. We've been on big family walks around the neighbourhoods, taken it on plenty of public transport trips (buses and ferry includes), walked around the city and shopping centres weekly, it's just the best pram and I cannot recommend it enough as a double. It has handled lots of situations so well and has always felt sturdy yet lightweight and easy to push. Very glad we have it for our two girls who will continue to fit into it comfortably as they grow.

Excellent low cost double stroller
Great product for my newborn and 2.5 year old. Used daily for walks have had it for 18months and still love it. Huge basket underneath. Customer service is excellent and very responsive. No frills beauty!
One of our ultimate twin purchases!
I can’t even tell you how much we love this pram.
We started out with an expensive tandem pram which was great when our twins were little, but after 12 months we started wondering what else out there would have more leg room, be lighter, have less assembly every time we got in and out of the car, had easier steering on suburban footpaths, amongst other things. On a recommendation from a friend who had it too, we picked up one of these in the tailormade model and it has nailed it on all accounts.
Getting around with twins is hard, and a daun...ting task every time you leave the house. This pram removed one of the obstacles and I found myself getting out of the house more and more, taking walks on paths I’d previously avoided, and even going into shops that were too hard to navigate with a long tandem pram. It’s wide, yes, but narrower than most, and I’ve only found one place so far the pram couldn’t fit - a Doctors office where I prefer to take the boys in our TwinGo carrier anyway. The boys are always comfy and very happy to sit in it at 18 months old, and love being able to hold hands - close, but not so close that they annoy each other, especially with seperate sun covers. The basket can be a little more inconvenient to access than other prams, but it’s so big that I don’t often mind. My other main criteria is keeping it clean - I’m not using pram liners but I’ve pulled everything off after a particularly messy pram snack experience, and it all washed perfectly and looks brand new again. Overall would highly recommend.

Easy to unfold and fold. Light weight and fits through doors you wouldn't think it would. It was recommended by a work colleague who has one for her twins. She said all her friends who had expensive other brands, more than $1,000.00, ended up getting the Valco brand prams instead
Perfect for both my toddler and newborn. I chose this as I don't like the idea of one child sitting above the other n my girls love looking out at everything we come across. The big basket and pockets come in handy when out and about and it is easy to maneuver. Will def recommend to anyone looking for a double
Perfect for twins
Easy to move, lightweight and easy to fold. Fits through standard doorways and no wider than a single pram. Wheels are sturdy and the basket underneath is huge. Facing the seats either way is also a bonus as it can also act as a “highchair” when at places that don’t have a highchair available.
It is a beast
This pram is so sturdy, big storage underneath. It can withstand rough terrain and has been a good workhorse with two year old twin boys and shopping. Cleaning the different parts is tricky, but a good scrub and hose down then leave in the sun did the trick. Definitely worth it
I love this stroller!!
I love this pram. It is perfect for my babies. My 3 year old still goes in it sometimes as she hates walking. Easy to push and manuever and I love the hood that can extend further by unzipping it. My kids also find it comfortable and regularly fall asleep in it. They can practically lay flat in it.
I bought this for my 3 and 1 year old so they could sit side by side. It's easy to push and fold and fits through a standard doorway. The only things I dont like is it's not very compact and the weight is heavy. It's hard and takes alot of room in the boot and quite heavy to lift and throw in the boot. Otherwise is a great double pram.

Better than Strider Compact
Love love love this pram!! so light, easy to manoeuver - even one handed, so easy to just unfold (or fold) and go! Getting it in and out of the car is a breeze.
I’ve had no issues with the width - it fits anywhere a troller or wheelchair can - which is pretty much everywhere!
I originally had a strider compact with second seat for my two boys (3 & 1), but it was heavy to lift, a pain to unfold / fold and put in the car due to always having to remove or attach one of the seats, and both kids didn’t like being on the bottom and not being able to see. Now they are side by side and love it! They love holding hands and sharing the viewing experience and I’m loving how much easier it is to just unfold and go!
We all love our twin stroller
Its easy to puy together and manoeuvre I have no worries folding and unfolding also it fits perfect in the booy of the car, it fits through all doors with lots of space. I couldn't be mote pleased and
Im very happy infact we got lucky with this purchase i do recommend it to anyone who has two babies or twins.
Best twin pram
We got Valco baby snap duo tailor-made pram for our twin boys.Have been using from 4 months and did not find any major issues so far.
- Very easy to maneuver, light and easy to fold and put it in a car.
- it folds to the inside, so does not collect the dust and mud when folded
- fits almost all the doorways so far
- I tried other prams but all those were very heavy for me as I had a CSec and didn't have much
- pram liner material is very good
- no need for newborn bassinet ...
Absolutely recommend this pram
This pram is excellent to maneuver- even with heavy children. It is also extremely simple to fold and unfold- which is very helpful when trying to keep an eye on two little kiddies. I’ve had mine for almost two years and it looks as good as new (highly recommend the tailor made- so easy to clean) I loved having the option to insert a bassinet or use as is for a newborn. Love love love this pram. A++
Best pram ever. It's so light, easily folds and fully reclines. Unfortunately after 12 months of use the stitching has started to come apart between the seats. My oldest is only 14 kgs and the pram is suppose to take up to 20kgs each seat. As is common I bought the pram a month or two before my second was born which now puts me out of my 12 month warranty (even though my baby is only 12 months old and the pram has only been used since she was born).

Light weight and easy to handle
It's Light weight, easy to fold and open, and load in the boot. Wheels also pop out if needed.
Also i found it easy to pass through door and even on buses. Sturdy enough for normal use.
Would have given 5star if the wheel were better. Foam wheel is easy pierced by seeds and other tiny things on pavement.
Questions & Answers
Hi, I bought a valco baby snap duo trend (trend duo) in grey marle a few months ago brand new. I would like to buy an eclipse bassinet for it, does it fit? Or do I have to buy the trend duo bassinet in grey marle? Thanks
Valiant B.Valco Baby
Great question :)
Unfortunately the eclipse bassinet is not compatible with your Trend Duo. However, a good substitute would be the veebee Walkabout Infant Cocoon.
This can be placed in your pram and secured with the clips on the Cocoon, to the "D rings" available on your pram's 5 point harness. We've attached a link to the product below.
Thank you so much for your answer. Will the cocoon sit straight? Since the trend duo has a öittle bit of an incline in the backrest, I thought ghe eclipse would have to be the one as it seems it has "legs" under where the baby puts its head, in order to bring the height up to make it all leveled. Does the cocoon have this feature? Or will it always sit on an incline? Im guessing you put the cocoon also back fo front so the baby is facing you?
Valiant B.Valco Baby
Our apologies for the confusion. The cocoon goes in forward facing only. It will sit however flat your pram seat does. So in the case of your Trend Duo, it's almost completely flat.
My snap duo doesnt have adjustable foot rest. Is there somewhere I can purchase spare parts so I can make the foot rest adjustable?
Valiant B.Valco Baby
Thanks for taking the time to write.
Only the more recent models of the Snap Duo have come with an adjustable footrest. Unfortunately there is no way to purchase additional parts to make the footrest adjustable.
A little "hack" that has worked for our customers, is to purchase the Snap Duo Bootcover: https://valcobaby.com.au/accessories/products/bootcovers/bootcover/ - this accessory, allows for the footrest to remain horizontal, whilst at the same time keeping bub's feet warm.
Is there a manual that helps with putting the snap duo back together after cleaning it? Struggling with the hoods
