Yeah - in particular, wanting to know how they like that whole tandem thing?
We have one!
My twins LOVE(D) it (they are four now, so mostly they ride their big kid bikes with training wheels instead).
I got the stroller-push handle to go with it, and was not thrilled with that part. It was pretty hard to push. I got it for their second birthday, and used it has a stroller a lot. They were much happier to ride on that than in the regular stroller.
The kid in front gets to steer and peddle, but the kid in back gets to do the brake, so both seats have their bonuses. My guys never fought about it. One of them was much better at steering, so I usually requested that he sit in front!
The same good-steerer is a much better peddler still, so when they do ride the tandem trike, he pretty much always "drives," and his twin brother LOVES getting a free ride in back.
It definitely didn't live up to all of my fantasies (i.e that it would be a great stroller), but the kids were thrilled with it, and still enjoy it even at age four.
Thanks for the info. A couple of follow-up questions . . .Do you think adding 2 tandems - so all 3 of my triplets could ride - would be too heavy for the peddler? Also - do you think buying more than 1 would be a waste of $$ - in other words, no major problems with the twins wanting their "own" bike?
