I’m all eyes and ears when the promise of a new double pram release
presents itself. It’s an area of the baby vehicle market that has
always been sorely lacking and I’m just waiting for a company to ease
the purchasing pain of parents with two babies close in age. Let’s
see if the new
Leebruss Zoom comes close. Brought to our attention by Babyology reader Melanie,
tandem-style pram which boasts multi-configuration like the
iCandy Pear. Neither are currently available in Australia, so for most of the
population this will be an interesting option in the pipe-dream category.
The Zoom accomodates several add-on options such as a Maxi Cosi,
bassinette and full-sized seat. Both children can face in or out and
also towards each other. I rather like the rounded chassis which sits
over four solid wheels. What I always watch out for are the front
swivel wheels as I have seen many tandems that evidently push like
tanks, from the look of exertion on the parent’s face. Bad swivel
wheels are an outing’s worst enemy and the Zoom looks to have great
manouevrability, even with a full load.
The included extras are a change bag and raincover, and although not
officially mentioned on the manufacturer’s website, according
to a favourable review on the Zoom it seems that it may also come with
cosytoes and a brolly.
The folded length is less
than a single Mountain Buggy, which is great news for those with more
No word yet on whether the Zoom will be released in Australia. It has been
released into the wilds of the UK market so perhaps you can bring one back on your next European jaunt.
