The Phil & Teds Dot buggy is suitable from birth to approximately 5 years (20kg). The buggy can be used as a single buggy for 1 child, or for two children with the addition of the double kit seat (available to purchase separately) to create an inline buggy.
What makes the Dot unique?
Over at Phil & Teds they never disappoint when it comes to designing better and more practical pushchairs every year. This year they have come up with Dot. Dot is Phil & Teds smallest and most compact inline buggy yet. The unique feature is that although Dot is the smallest inline buggy to date, with a width of just 59cm (explorer width is 62cm), those clever designers at Phil & Teds have still managed to make sure Dot has a FULL size main seat!
Comfort and Practicality
As we mentioned earlier, the Dot is very compact, in fact it is 15% smaller than the Phil & Teds Explorer buggy! This means the Dot is very practical and can easily fit into most car boots. It's narrow width means it can fit effortlessly through tight spaces, such as shopping ailes, lifts, walkways and metro gates. The Dot is perfect for life on the go, it's compactness makes it ideal for city living, but like all phil & teds buggies it is multi-terrain and is also at home in the countryside.
The main seat can recline to multiple positions for the comfort of your child, and can also recline to a full lie-flat position which is ideal for newborns, but equally beneficial for your child when they are older too. The seat is contoured and ventilated for superior comfort and support for your little one. The seat also features a 5-point padded safety harness to keep your child secure in the buggy. The harness is also a 'tail free' harness, which means no annoying loose straps flying about.
We know how busy being a parent is and so do Phil & Teds, which is why they try to make their products as easy as possible to use. The Dot is so easy and fast to fold, and it can be done with just one hand! This quick and easy folding mechanism means no more hassle, just fold it down with one smooth action, pop it in the car and off you go!
As with all Phil & Teds inline buggies, Dot features a generous size shopping basket, although access is made difficult and smaller when their is a child in the rear double kit seat. The Dot buggy does not include a raincover, but there is both a single and a double raincover available to purchase separately.
The buggy features a single padded handle bar, and the height on the handle bar can be adjusted to suit the person pushing the buggy.
The 3 (10 inch) air filled tyres give a smooth and comfortable ride on all terrain. The front wheel can be easily locked into position when going over uneven terrain such as, sand, gravel or grass. When on the smooth surfaces the front wheel can be left in 'swivel' mode and rotate 360 degrees for ultimate manoeuvrability.
As we mentioned earlier the Dot can be used as a single buggy, or as an inline buggy for two children with the addition of the double kit seat. The double kit seat features a 5-point safety harness and sun canopy. It also has a two position recline, which parents can adjust with one hand! The recline on the double kit means that even the child in the rear can have a comfy nap while out and about.
The Dot can also be used with the Phil & Teds Snug carrycot (sold separately), which is suitable from birth to approximately 6 months. The snug carrycot is exactly that..SNUG, and perfect or newborns. The Phil & Teds Bebe infant car seat and the Maxi Cosi infant car seats can also be used on the chassis of the pushchair with the use of the correct adaptors (sold separately).
