phil & teds Dash

Strollin': phil & teds Dash

Some of the top-of-the-line strollers on the market today are those made by phil & teds. The New Zealand manufacturers have hit a sweet spot with their multifunctional line of duo seating buggies that serve many purposes while still looking sleek and sporty.

Great for a day out on the jogging path, the phil & teds Dash ($550) is suited to give mommy an easy outing while providing a baby (or two) a comfy cruise.

Perks mama can enjoy are an adjustable ergonomic handlebar, easy to manage rear brakes, a roomy storage basket that has pouches to stow small items, a sun canopy with a peek-a-boo window, and a long lifetime. Also, instead of having to double up on strollers, every phil & teds buggy is suited to add another seat (for an additional $100), magically turning it into a double stroller in minutes. A new feature for phil & teds, the area above the front wheel is now plastic. Why is that better you ask? The original fabric foot area design was appealing to the eye, but busy lil feet tended to wear the fabric down leaving tiny toes in danger of touching the wheel. The plastic board is an improvement to an already stellar stroller.

For moms toting around one child, the single seat can manage children up to 55 pounds or 4 years old. When a sibling enters the picture, the second seat ups the capacity to 88 pounds. Both seats can recline into comfortable napping positions, which would be perfect for a mother craving a jam session with her iPod on the jogging trail. That's probably a pipe dream, but at least the stroller offers the ability to do so.

Also impressive is the quick breakdown of the practical pushchair. Instead of having to disassemble the whole stroller for storage, the creative designers figured out a way to collapse the jogging stroller easily — even with the double seat attached. Be ready to use your upper arm strength when storing this bad boy. Like most other strollers in the jogging category, the stroller weighs a hefty 23 pounds. But hey, that's not too shabby for two strollers in one!

New to the family, the Dash will be available in November!

We will be finishing off our mini season of original stroller reviews with a special giveaway in October. Stay tuned for more details.

It is a little crazy that you don't get a cup holder but it's definitely a reasonably priced addon you can get from http://www.babology.com/category/brands.phil_and_teds/

We love our P&T Sport Double. No problems here with anyone getting kicked and the kids fight over the back "rumble" seat. Mine did not come with a cup holder but we got the matching pack (that has 2 cup holders) for $10 at the store where we bought ours. The best thing about it though is that even though it's a jogger (and a double at that), it is easy to take lots of places since it's not 4ft + wide.

I have the old version of this stroller and love it, love it. My two fight over who gets to sit in the "cool" backseat. THere is actually alot of room between the front and back seat. Also, the back seat can be moved to the front if the bed option is being used. And if you buy from a store instead of online, you get the cup holder for free (if you don't mind asking :) )

I have a phil and ted and LOVE LOVE LOVE it. My 18 month old actually loves the bottom seat much more. It is super easy to push around and you never have problems with doors. I do baby boot camp and never had a problem hitting the seat. I got bought a bob holder to go on it so I have two cup holders and a pouch in the middle. The saddle bag from skip hop is perfect for the side. On of the BEST purchases I have ever made.

I hate the second seat on this. The child in the lower seat can't see anything, gets the weight of the top one right against their face (not literally, but still), and probably gets really closed to getting kicked by mom or dad's running feet.
