Features

The Phil & Teds Dot v3 Pushchair is a super slim and lightweight pushchair that still manages to house a full size seat and room for a second. A second seat is also included with the Dot v3, so it can grow when your family does. This makes the pushchair very cost effective, and perfect for parents with one or more children. Measuring only 59cm wide and weighing only 11.7kg, the Dot is small enough and light enough to be a perfect match for any family.

Seat

The seat unit is forward facing with a secure 5-point safety harness. This has a new design that makes it very easy to use, all the harness pieces are individual so easier to pop back in. The pushchair includes a padded seat liner, which is very comfy and cosy. There is a high seat back too which is great for older children.

The sun hood offers 50+ UPF protection to your baby and the flip out visor keeps the sun, wind and dust out of their eyes. There is also a peek-a-boo window in the top to let you keep an eye on your child inside.

Ride

10″ puncture proof aerotech tyres protect the wheels. The front wheel can be locked straight for rougher terrain, but can also be unlocked for full swivel mode –  for when more manoeuvrability is needed. As the Dot v3 Pushchair is only 59cm wide, it fits easily through doorways and tight city spaces. Kerb-pop technology makes getting up onto the pavement a simple and stress free process. The foot operated brake adds additional control.

The Double Kit

The Phil & Teds Dot v3 Pushchair comes with the double kit for growing families. Even though the Dot v3 is so compact, there is still enough room for a second seat. The pushchair not only includes this second seat but it also includes a sun cover and seat liner for the double kit.

Not only can the double kit be used at the rear of the pushchair, it can also be used on the front. There are two ways that the double kit can be attached to the front of the Dot v3: as a rear facing seat or as a double kit up front. These options either let your child face you or allow for your little one to lie-flat in a snug environment whilst your other child can sit up and explore.

You are also able to recline the second seat while your child is inside, which is a lovely feature for children that love to snooze. As a result of all of these features and added extras, the pushchair is ideal for growing families.
