I am pleased I went with the dash ahead of the sport. One thing that annoys me on ours though is the sunshade. Whenever I get the buggy out from being in the car the sunshade has always come to bits and is a pain to get back on again. I still don't like the buggy as much as my mountain buggy but for two kids it is pretty good really. It is definitely growing on me.

thanks for your feedback katie!

Is it heavy to push with 2 kids?

A bit but you get used to it. I always think it is 'extra' exercise!

we have a red sports edition one and its over 2 1/2years old now
and nota a thing wrong, well apart from the stitching coming away from one of the inside zips - because the boys like to keep zipping and unzipping it while there fat bums are in it grrr
fading... nope not so much! and you can actually unscrew the whole thing and it scrubs up very well and looks brand new
we are looking at getting a new one once bubs is born so I think we will stick with the sports edition


ohh and we dont have a car so it is used practically daily! a very good pram, can get it off and on busses with ease, quite lightweight and can push it with one hand and still steer it
I recommend it

I'm saving for my sport. I keep going back and thinking maybe I do want a dash instead, but being 'visual' person that apple green wins me over. I hardly use the brake on my buggy now, only when I'm on a slope or I feel we are in a dodgy people area.

$200 to go the that buggy is mine. 

Question, does anyone know if there are any apple grafftti ones left. I had my heart set on one, but they seem to be disappearing from online stores. I wonder if BC still has any.

Thanks for that tip weegee.

I'm currently researching P & T's too but hadn't realised that Kiwi Baby were 2 different stores depending on the co.nz or .com

We have just bought the P&T Classic double which is on special at a few places for $599. I am pretty happy with it. In a dream world i would have loved the Dash or even Vibe, but for us that extra few hundred dollars just wasn't justifiable for something that just 'looks' a bit nicer.

Sally, I won't use the Kiwibaby in Glenfield anymore. They don't have deals as good as the other stores and won't let you layby anything at sale prices. I think that is a bit of a rip off as all the bigger baby stores are happy to do that!

I took DP to check out the Dash as I was sold on it, 3 minutes later after pushing it around the shop he liked the vibe...so we ended up with the vibe. However would have been happy to get the dash. Also I got a great price on the vibe with extras. $899 plus it included the wind/storm cover, the sun cover, a food tray thing and a drink bottle holder for free (total cost $140) from smiths city in March.

We love the Vibe, but I will only get it when they release the travel system thingy for the capsule. I think it was due to be released July, anyone know if it has happened yet??

Yeah, the one on the website shows it with the Vibe but none of the shops I have spoken to think there is a travel system for the vibe. Will have to call Phil & Teds direct I think. We want the bebe HS capsule

in answer to my question... the sales person at babycty reckons you could if the toddler was small enough to fit in the toddler seat on the bottom. Not sure I would do it for a long time but a quick supermarket run maybe...
