Kid-kid tandem? Ever hear or see such?

Ever hear or, or see, a tandem set up for two kids to ride? I'm talking about a kid captain and a kid stoker. Would it be insanely dangerous? Or just incredibly cute?

I have identical twins (too young to ride at present) and I think it would be just adorable to get em on a bike together. I bet a little creativity with a welder and some cast-off 16" kids' bikes could make something awesome... ever hear of such? Crazy idea?

One of the tandem guys on MTBR built his girls a race tandem. Very cool.

This link shows the bike.

If you search a bit, there is also photos of how he took two single and welded them together to build it.

Very Cool

Well, there was once at least. Only a triplet. And yes, cute.

That BMX combo is for sale. As of the start of this year, at least.

A seach for BMX tandem also brings up something sold by Mall-Wart. Cheaper. And you might well get what you pay for...
... Not a recommendation...
