This one looks very similar to the Zapp. Seems quite promising. I do like the Aria too, I just felt the height of the handle was a little low for Paul. I also can't be doing with taking wheels or other bits off a buggy to fit it in the boot.

Question Buzz fits WITH parcel shelf?!

Fits in the back of ours no problem with the parcel shelf in place. I'll try and snap it tomorrow if I remember and post up

There is a knack to it
Any chance of some pics or a brief explanation?!!!

I have just bought a Buzz and thought I'd have to live without parcel shelf as it seems just a little too tall (with one wheel off on it's side, both back seats up). If there is a better way, I haven't found it yet!

Cheers,

Matt

I saw that earlier in the year, interesting product, I used to work for them some years ago, and I know the factory where that product is made, so I'd let it come to market and sell it for year before considering buying one, as they will need to work the bugs out of it, trust me

as much as it pains me, might be worth checking out the new Bugaboo bee, launchs in the UK in December, I'll get to see it in a few weeks, so will let you know what I think

Hi everyone, I only collected my R56 MCS a few months ago and have now just had the great news that my wife is pregnant and its twins, which is great news as we have been trying for about 4 years for a baby.

So my question is....does anyone know if there is any type of double pushchair that I could somehow squeeze into the boot of my MINI. I know its a long shot but I thought worth asking all you parents out there.

Thanks

Good grief, that's going to be a squeeze at best. Not seen any mentioned thus far, but fingers crossed for you. And congratulations!

twin aria is worth a try, but parcel shelf will have to be out I'd guess, but otherwise I haven't a clue as most twins are HUGE!!!!

Oh and congrats on the good news

The Jane Powertwin will fit in the boot of an R53, but you have to remove the rear wheels (of the oushchair, not the MINI!). I know, we have used one for the last 9 months!!!
You can leave the parcel shelf in place, but the pram only goes in one way around, The front wheel has to be facing you (and unclipped so it fold down slightly) as you put it in, and on the left hand side.

United-Kingdom Bugaboo chameleon fits!

Was a little confused by all the postings re what fits and what doesn't and just want to add that the bugaboo chameleon frame fits sideways in the boot of a '55 mini one with only the top easy release wheel removed - parecel shelf still on.

The Quinny Buzz fits also with both wheels off - parcel shelf still on.

Hope this helps!
