We've needed to replace either one of the inflatable tires at least 10 times in the last 3 years that we've had the stroller. The inside tubing is impossible to change out and for the cost that we've had to pay to replace the tires, we could've bought a whole new double stroller. Would not recommend!!
Bulky and inconvenient but stylish

I was so attracted to the outlook of this stroller that I bought it on a whim. After owning it for 3.5 years now, I've only used it a handful of times ( less than 10 outings). It's too bulky and heavy to use so we ended up using other lighter strollers. Can't bring the Verve for travel due to its size. Wheels have punctured and to my surprise, the hardware is beginning to show signs of wear and tear although we seldom use it. I noticed the folding & unfolding pull the fabric and it started fraying on the side of the frame. For the price, I have other more convenient options. The inline feature and outlook is great though!

We purchased this buggy in July 2014 after looking at many different double seat pushchairs. We had phil and ted sports buggy with our first daughter and it was great but we needed something easier to fold and push. We travel internationally often and this buggy has been easy to fold up and store. It fits nicely in our car and is so easy to unfold and attach the second seat to. It is so comfy too for our baby girl. We have been impressed as we have used it in the city and in the country- even in the desert! The covers are awesome as complete cover and easy to put on. A great buy- we are very happy and would recommend.
Meeting all my expectations and more

I researched many strollers and brands prior to purchasing the Verve with consideration of price, quality, functionality and customer service if required. In addition this stroller is for our first child, knowing we would like to have more children in the future and wanted a stroller to suit our needs now and in the future. I am very pleased that my research led me to this stroller and brand. At this stage the stroller is meeting all my expectations and more.

I bought this when my youngest was 18months and my olders was 3years to replace our existing double stroller and we wish we had done it sooner. This stroller is so easy to puch even with 2 toddlers in we were amazed!!
The rise is smooth thanks to the airfilled tyres and the second seat actually reclines if you have 2 sleepy children!
Another huge advantage is being able to collapse the stroller with both seats still attanted so its quick and efficient when trying to put it back into the car boot in the rain!
I would and have reccommended this stroller to all of my friends whole heartedly!

I feel this is a good one for the kids. The tyres, shock absorbers and the space should make it comfortable for them.
Perfect stroller for 1 or 2 kids

This was a truly great purchase. The stroller not only looks great but oozes quality too. For me one of the best attributes is the easy folding system; this is great for getting the Verve in and out of the car. In action, it could not perform better. This stroller literally can be pushed with 1 finger ! Well done Phil & Teds, a top product !!!
Compact size and life saver

I had one for three years and we ruined it going out, traveling or even inside the house. Had to buy another new model, never hesitated. I shipped it all the way from USA to my home country Egypt as I was there at the mean time and will never come back with three kids and no stroller. I even paid the freight fees but really it worth all the money. I call all the phil and teds double strollers the life savers. I garantee myself that your life will change after using this stroller.

I love this buggy. Such a smooth ride and so easy to use out of the box.
Great features but disappointing wearibility

This pram has the design features we needed in a double buggy, and its great having the break on the handlebar. However, the metal frame and plastic has scratched a lot in the 4 months we have had the buggy, from just folding it up and down to get it in and out of the car. I previously had a mountain buggy, and it was hard wearing and doesn't look as old as the verve despite having had the MB for 2 years. Also with the mountain buggy I never had a puncture, and with the verve I have had one.
couldn't be happier!!

I have looked around and purchased other double strollers. O was never completely satisfied with other doubles. I finally purchased this stroller and am so happy I did! It folds so much more compact then I thought and much more then other doubles. Its very easy to maneuver with both kids in it as well. I thought my son would be frustrated sitting in the back but it turns out he is completely fine with it! I am so happy we purchased this stroller!
Not what I expected

Overall happy, the cons the stroller is heavy and when you collapse can easily scratch the chassis..... The rain cover doesn't fit too well.. The pros are its well made, a dream to push, the brake is great, the storage underneath is large, it sits upright and also lies flat, we also got the sleeping bag which my boy loves...... Overall happy but we now need another light weight buggy as it's just too heavy to throw in and out of the car.

I absolutely LOVE THIS STROLLER!!! Folks stop me and compliment me on it all the time. It rides smooth and the wheels are sturdy. Closing it up is fairly easy, its pretty heavy though, but thats expected. I love it, it was worth every dime.
Amazing double stroller!!

Once I found out I was expecting my second child, immediately I went on the hunt looking for the best double stroller with great reviews! This stroller is worth everyyyy penny! My kids love the smooth ride and I kid you not, everytime we go out I get looks and stares from people that are so attracted to the design and beauty of the stroller. They are in awe, and pleasantly surprised to see my little guy sitting comfortably in the back seat. They always say that they have never seen a double stroller built this way. And without a doubt, I tell them it's one of the best double strollers out there. My favourite features are: the braking system within a click of a button, the wheels which make a very smooth ride and very easy to maneuver, and the folding of the stroller which is compact for a double stroller. It's also comfy, very sturdy and can handle any terrain! The only thing I would change on this stroller is for the front seat to be bigger. My 2 year old is tall for her age and it seems like she could use some more seat space. Although now when I look at the pictures posted of the stroller on the Phil & teds website the seat appears to look a little different, assuming because it is the 2014 model (bought mine in 2013). So maybe they added a change or two. Other than that I absolutely love this stroller and will never turn to anything else :) Thank you Phil & Ted!
So happy we bought it!

I bought this pram 18 months ago when my 2 year old became very sick. He was a big boy and this was the tallest pram we could find. My son loved it and was always really comfortable in it, whether on the foot path, at the shops or in hospital. The big basket underneath, easy but reliable brakes and super comfy seat meant that my son always had a comfortable retreat, no matter what was going on. Worth every cent.
Wonderful Stroller for my Two Sons!

I won this awesome stroller and feel so lucky that I did! It has wonderful features and all my friends comment on how "fancy" it is. I received the stroller in black-the fabric is padded and comfortable. I do have to keep it in the shade, as the black can get really hot in the sun. We love the air-filled tires, they are easy to maneuver and work great while pushing it on the grass or beach. The stroller is very sturdy and the quality is excellent. We received the double kit for our infant son. It was easy to install and our son loves to go on rides. It is a little hard for him to see out the back, but if he turns his head to the side he can see just fine. The five point harness system allows both of our kids to be safe! A couple things I would consider changing is: we wish the front seat could be adjusted to allow our son to sit up a little more (the main seat leans back a little too far), we wish there was a cup holder and a place for parents to keep keys, a snack tray and cup holder would also be nice for our son, and we wish the sun shade was a little longer( our sons legs are always in the sun). Overall, this is a beautiful stroller and we recommend it to all new parents.
Awesome gorgeous double stroller

I won this stroller with the double kit in Cherry Red. It is very well put together and the red color is gorgeous. My son loves to ride in this stroller, it is super plush and very comfortable for him. I like the padded shoulder straps, that helps protect his neck from chafing. We've already had to clean the cover and it was really easy to remove and re-install. The braking system is really nice. I hated having to mess with the foot-operated brakes on my old stroller. This one just takes one push of the red button on the parent handle and it stops immediately! Also I appreciate the parent arm safety strap. I love how easy the wheels come off.
I only have the 1 kid now, so I haven't tested out the double kit with a 2nd child. I did install it (super easy) and learned how to fold the stroller with the double kit installed. Nice! All my friends are so jealous and I've been bragging about all the different combinations this stroller can do.
Some of the things I would change: It has a high learning curve with opening/closing it, and the auto close feature tends to auto-close on me when I'm trying to open it since there are 3 different locks you have to deal with just to open it (the black side flips, the auto-close latch, and the silver metal circular thing). It seems like 2 locks would be sufficient, or an easier way to temporarily disable the auto-lock when opening. I really wish it came with some sort of parent cup holder. Also my previous stroller had handles to carry it when folded up, this one doesn't. Because it's so awkward to carry when folded since there's no handles, my husband just rolls it when it's in the folded position and pulls on the child's grab bar, but in the process he has scuffed up the parent handle because the parent handle drags on the ground. And if the parent handle is not in a specific position, it will not stand on its own when folded. I do wish that the interior of the canopy was not tan. Black, red or even grey would have been a much better color choice. Also my toddler's legs aren't long enough so they kind of float in the air, a foot rest of some sort would be nice.
Overall it is a very nice stroller. If you have 2 kids, I highly recommend. Just know that with the double kit being occupied, the storage area is pretty much nothing.
