I presume they are fitted with twin airbags and a high impact roll cage as standard for your two children`s health and safety ?

You wouldn’t happen to be from Sunderland would you?

I don't think this is an amazing price for one of these, I would say generally they're available on ebay/amazon for similar.

I've had one for 8 years, it used to be amazing for the kids at music festivals.

I've seen someone with a bicycle front cradle once. The parent was cycling this adorable child amongst traffic. Worst then this buggy thing tbh. Bicycles are dangerous enough for adults in this country.
I want one of these but for my 88 year old grandmother to ride in.
The price appear better than anywhere else
I am okay with people driving these on parks, large grounds and pavement but would never ride one same as I would cycling to work. They are lethal. I can shove my self into pavement in an emergency, this has no chance of that.
Blend in well on the M25 at rush hour.
Lol. Taking your kids to school with one of these is considered 'weird' but taking your kids in an enormous 4 wheel drive and polluting the air around the school is considered normal....
As Tears for Fears said 'it's a Mad World'
These things terrify me.
Everyone being terrified at how dangerous cycling is, and talking about having to throw yourselves to the pavement in an emergency ?

Just maybe we should invest in cycle infrastructure and things like this, because its better for the economy, environment, personal and public health.

I don't use one of these because I don't even have kids, maybe I'm weird though?

Reading comments on this just makes me wonder for humanity at times.
I've got a similar one (Samax from Amazon). It comes with bars to protect the wheels which is definitely needed.
I take my two year old out all the time, but not on the road. We have a forest with loads of trails nearby where we live in France (50 yards away on a quiet road).
Returning to the UK soon. This wouldn't be suitable where we live so I will just get a seat on the back.

In summary, I wouldn't use this on busy roads, but they are great if you have other trails and routes. There's also storage room behind the seat.
Seen some crazy woman belting through York with one of these on the back of her bike weaving through traffic up and down curbs through red lights I thought no way is there a kid Inside ? Finally caught up with her 4 mins later and yes some poor toddler asleep inside , I think great for long off road bike rides at your centre Parcs or national trust areas but deadly on the road

Have you ever seen cars passing cyclists at 40-50 mph just centimetres away? Have you ever seen cars driving on cyclists lanes? Have you ever seen people driving chaotically avoiding holes into pavement?
What would happen if your kid is on one of them and gets hit by a car?
It might be good to use it in a park but never on the road with kids inside.
Sometimes I wonder too what happened with humanity
Natural selection I suppose.
Just my 2 cents.

Please. Do not use on a road. As someone who cycles thousands of miles a year I am astonished to see kids being towed in these. I have 3 kids and I would never ever dream of putting them in these near a road. Off road through parks etc they are great. Makes me feel physically sick when I see young children being carried on bikes on the roads. It's bad enough out there for adults.

These seem particularly dangerous for road use. Is this one big enough to fit a mother-in-law inside?
I tow my child in my Burley encore bike trailer on the road sometimes. I tend to stick to quiet roads as I feel more comfortable there. The burley trailer has an extensive roll cage and is very strong. It did cost 500 quid though I do wonder where all the savings are in this thing.
However the safety record on trailers is actually very good. You could argue you shouldn't push your child in a pram next to traffic. People tend to be very courteous towards me when I am towing my child and he absolutely loves it.

Yes, it's definitely weird to take your kids to school in one of these. But don't worry, if you're lucky enough to avoid your kids being squashed by one of the enormous 4x4s you mentioned you can be sure they'll develop respiratory disease from diesel smoke inhalation due to being dragged along against their will at exhaust pipe level. It might be good for the planet but it's certainly not good for the poor little urchins who get shoved inside these things.
Anyone know if this can be used like a double buggy in the picture IE sans bike?

Utter rubbish!

That is the reality. Cycling on roads with this is potentially dangerous. Should be Ok for parks.
Yes perhaps infrastructure should be considered for roads but the kids would still be at the level of the exhaust pipes. Being realistic infrastructure suitable for bringing this trailer around takes time and planning and aldi offers don't be around that long!

Hm, I have a single one of these, carted round my eldest in it no problem, on road and cycle paths, I guess we just live in a quiet town. We moved to a nearby village and I haven't taken my youngest in it as all the roads here are so small and windy I wouldn't feel comfortable. I miss it, was lovely to cycle to nearby lakes and have picnic.

How is it rubbish? Diesel particulate levels at 2 feet from the road surface are absolutely huge compared to 6 feet on the pavement. There really isn't a much worse place to be short of sticking your mouth round the exhaust pipe.

No, that photo was put there justs to confuse you..................appears to have worked!
NOT FOR ROAD USE - PLEASE!!!!!!!!
I use mine for short journeys on roads. Drivers are so scared of them they don't pass me with mm to spare like normal, they wait until there is enough space (usually just before hitting the next junction/queue of cars).

If more people cycled/walked where possible we would have far fewer traffic jams and the journeys which needs a car will be quicker. The number of people I see who have driven 5 minutes to drop off at school or nursery!!!

A thousand times this. 🏽 Apparently not being a sheep makes you weird.

I suppose that depends very much on your own personal definition of weird.

Just to let you know that the vast majority of 'enormous 4 wheel drive' cars that you see near schools are actually 2 wheel drive, and usually have a 1.2 - 1.6 litre engine. The 4WD gas guzzlers are a minority, even though you may think you see lots - many people opt for cars that 'look the part', but in fact, aren't.
