Which Phil & Teds?

Post by Blue Sapphire » Thu, 05 Nov 2009 10:54 am

Thinking of getting a Phil & Teds. Will be used mostly while in the shopping malls.

Not sure which to go for: Vibe or Sport?

From reviews on the internet alot recommends the Vibe but I find it very big. I see alot of people with Phil & Teds around. The mojority seem to have the Sport.

Any comments?

The Vibe has had some issues with brake mechanism and the front wheel starts to wobble after some use. Sport has an annoying brake, especially with sandals - still, it is likely the lesser of two evils if you want a Phil and Ted's. We ended up buying the UPPAbaby Vista with piggyback board and rumble seat from Baby Zoo, near Great World City.

We have the Vibe, and bought it about 1 year ago in Canada. It's been great, esp with the infant add-on for our youngest. It's travelled with us to 5 different countries plus lots of use in town, and has been okay. It collapses nicely even with the attachment.

However, we have the front wheel wobble if the front isn't weighed down (baby in back while toddler gets out to run, or simply running with the Vibe). Also, the infant in the back started to get bored at around age 14 months, and could lean over and stick his hands in the rear wheels, even with the seat harnes fastened tightly.

We picked up a cheap foldable stroller at a garage sale in Canada for $5 and it seems to travel with us more often lately, espically as the older one is much more capable of walking now.
