PRICE

Let’s start at arguably the most important part of purchasing a pram - the cost!

The ROVER 2019 has two different pricing options available, depending on whether you intend on using your pram with a newborn or not. If you are purchasing for your child whose 6 months or older, you will only need the Stroller Only option which comes in at $749.99. If you intend on using the ROVER with your newborn however, you will need to purchase the ROVER Pram & Bassinet Bundle which is priced at $849.99.

As the DUO2 is a tandem pram which can be used as either a single or a double pram, the pricing structure differs to the ROVER 2019 model. If you intend on using the DUO2 as a single pram only, you can purchase the Bassinet & Seat Set (no double adaptors) for $899.99 which would be the equivalent to the ROVER 2019 Stroller & Bassinet Bundle. If after a couple of years you had another child and wanted to use the pram as a double pram, you would just need to purchase the Front and Rear Double adaptors ($39.99 each).

Alternatively, if you wanted to future proof your purchase and buy the DUO2 as a double pram, the Bassinet & Seat Set with all Double Adaptors is $949.99, and the Two Seat Set with all Double Adaptors (no bassinet) is also $949.99.

OPTIONS

Both the ROVER 2019 & DOU2 Single Option have the ability to utilise our Universal Toddler Board, allowing your bigger bub to stand and ride along on the pram. There are also a bunch of accessories from Lambskin Seat Liners to Cup Holders that can be used in conjunction with both single prams.

SO, WHATS THE DIFFERENCE?

By now you might be scratching your head trying to work out exactly what the differences are between the ROVER 2019 & DUO2 models. Whilst there are a lot of common features of the two prams, there certainly are differences in terms of their weights, dimensions and wheels. This is largely due to the DUO2 having the option of being a double pram and therefore, requires larger wheels and a heavier, sturdier frame. These key differences are outlined below.

If you wanted a final piece of advice from us, if you’re upgrading a pram for your Toddler, your best bet will be to purchase the ROVER 2019 Stroller Only Option.

If you are looking to future proof your purchase and think you will end up having more than one child, do yourself a favour and invest in the DUO2 Bassinet & Seat Set with Double Adaptors! This saves you money on the cost of buying the adaptors on their own, and means you only ever need to purchase one pram for the duration of your multiple pregnancies!
