hi i will look out and if i do i will let you know.also the bargin pages can be good but only if you no someone who can drive but i will let you know take care joanne and family
There are a few places you could try - there is an organisation called TwinsUK that do produce double buggies - I know they produce one that is suitable for a child up to 8, it might be worth contacting them about your special requirements. Their website link is http://www.twinsuk.co.uk/category.php?dept_id=6&sub_id=146
It might also be worth contacting your Local Authority and speaking with an Occupational Therapist - they may have some other ideas.
If you still have no joy please do get back in touch and we'll investigate a bit further....hope this helps...
Best wishes, Lucy
I just wanted to say that we got a Maclaren Major buggy when my daughter was born and my son was still not walking due to his disability. We got this from disablement services - I think the OT referred us.
Hope this helps,
