    […] I was convinced it was a must have with a 3 week old boy and a 1 1/2 year old boy. It does look really cool, but that is about it. First, it weighs a ton. I am a pretty big guy and found it to be extremely heavy. My wife couldn’t even pick it up to put it in the back of our SUV. Which brings me to my second grievance, it is HUGE. If you own a car with a trunk, just forget about it. It takes up the entire rear of our Armada SUV. I tried to fit it in the very spacious trunk of my Altima and it did not fit. Next is comfort.. or should I say UNcomfort. The seats are very small and even though my older son is not even two years old, even he is very cramped. The attachment for the “compatible” car seat is frightening. I placed my infant in the car seat on the attachment and it is so flimsy, that the front brace popped out and my son nearly faceplanted on the hard floor (luckily he was securely strapped in and I was at the ready and caught the car seat before anything serious happened). Finally, once it is completely folded closed (which you really need to remove both seats to be able to close it as compact as possible) the basket drags lower than the wheels, so if you plan on collapsing it then rolling it over to your trunk or anywhere else, it CANT be done because the basket drags and gets caught on the wheels. So now when I want to take it out of the SUV and bring it in the garage, I have to carry the behemoth. I am sorry if I seem really bitter or negative, but I feel I must tell the truth to help other consumers. I always read reviews before I purchase anything, unfortunately for my wife and I, there were no reviews for this stroller when we purchased:( There are some positives though, it does look really really cool, and my wife says my biceps are looking really toned after all the heavy lifting of this stroller. One final FYI… this is supposed to be the new and improved Contours stroller, the previous one ([$]) was even heavier!

    I TRIED SEVERAL STROLLER BEFORE ,BUT WHEN I TRIED THIS ,WAS PERFECT FOR ME.IS EASY TO DRIVE AND CAN BE USE IN DIFFERENT POSITIONS!!!IS PERFECT!!!

  3. cmberb on November 7th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Pretty much everything the reviewer said before me is correct. I think the worst is that you cant use the wheels to push it around when it is folded up, because it is really very heavy. I just noticed they upped the price. I think I am going to take mine back. Oh and my parent try just fell off, now I can’t even justify the weight as being “high quality.”

  4. Rebecca and two kids on the run on November 9th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I use this like most moms …malls, shopping centers etc. Its great cause it holds two children and lots of stuff. Its not great because it is very heavy and I am no wimp. I have a tahoe and when I go shopping I have to take everything out of the back to get the stroller back in because it is just to large and heavy to put on top of all my things. Im sorry to say it was a big waist of money and that I am selling it to get a lite compact double.

  5. Happy Grandma on November 19th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    My daughter wanted this because she has 2 girls who are 18 months apart. I enjoy pushing the girls around in this stroller. I like the fact that we can keep the baby in her infant car seat and her sister can sit in her seat in either position. While the stroller doesn’t fold up that flat but I don’t know of a double stroller that will. I checked them all out before we got this one for her. We love the fact that you can move the seats around

  6. Karen on November 23rd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I’ve had this stroller for over a year now and I’m ready to get rid of it. I love that I get asked about it everytime I’m out. It really is a head turner, but that’s where it all ends. It is really cheaply made. The front wheels and parent tray keep falling off and yes, it is very, very heavy and you do have to remove the back seat to close it compactly. I do love that the seats are reversable, but they are very, very shallow. If you have small children, they will fit, but if you have tall children like mine, don’t bother. The harness system is rather cheap as well.

  7. mytwinsand a 3 year old on November 24th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I bought this about a year ago, I have twin boys, and this stroller you can buy the additional part for the dual infant seat holder- so that was the nice part and the seats you can recline them so that if you want them to have a bottle when you are put- simple just place the chair back or both of them- we also have a 2 year- now three, when the boys are in the seats, she sits in the middle and holds on to the handles of theres- this is a HUDGE assett in the mall!!- it is heavy yes you will get 100 compliments- in the last week I bought the peg prego duet- are you kidding sooo hard to steer and [$]- that was gone after 1 trip to target- and also bought the pegprego side by side aria- that stinks to turn- that is gone as well- this stroller is a little cheaper made- but it is very easy to manuaver and with that large basket which we love and also needs a tray- but until i find a good replacement- this is the one- really its a triple stroller for us.

  8. mel on December 5th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We bought this double stroller about a year ago after having our second baby and haven’t stopped using it yet. We kept the baby car seat from our first baby and was able to use it with this stroller, a lot of the more expensive brand double strollers would have required we buy a different/new seat. The other selling point was that the other double strollers didn’t maneuver as well. We’ve been approached many time while out and about with this stroller and were happy to share with many parents the flexibility this stroller offers. I am able to have the kids facing back to back, face to face, both facing backwards or the traditional both facing front. Chairs also recline with ease. and depending on which position you put the chairs you will need to adjust the foot rests. I also love that it has two cup holders and a covered container for car keys or your cell phones. It has a very large lower basket. I’m really enjoying the benefits of the large basket now that the holidays are upon us. While my 3 year old is in pre-school, my 1 year old and I go shopping for gifts, and because of this strollers flexibility, I can completely remove 1 seat and use it as a single stroller with triple the basket space of a normal stroller. I have yet to make a trip to the car to unload to make room. It is a little bulky when collapsed, but I found that by removing both seats it folds easier and takes less room. The frame is not much heavier than the single I had for my first. The only thing I could think of that would have been nice to have included is a rain cover. The universal rain covers out there don’t fit. I ended up buying a couple of clear ponchos and just draped them over the stroller. Otherwise this stroller has been one of the best strollers I’ve had.

  9. Audrey - Mom of two on December 5th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller because it is so so easy to steer. The canopy’s are the best, and the way the seats recline is perfect. However, the biggest downfall is the size. We’ve dubbed this stroller my ‘SUV’ stroller. I drive a Grand Prix and it barely fits in the trunk. I have to take both seats off to get it in, than I have to put the frame in first, therefore I have to set the seats on the ground to put it in or take it out of the trunk. It steers wonderfully, so it’s not like you can take it to the mall or some place like that easily. The basket underneath is huge which is a plus. However, my daughter who is 3 1/2 has now outgrown the stroller. I wish the seats were longer, as there is room for longer seats with the setup of the current stroller. I also wish there were trays or cup holders or something instead of the ‘roller coaster bar’ as well as a seat belt. It is a first generation, but it needs some improvement before I call it an amazing stroller – it is a good candidate in the future when it’s improved on though! I completely recommend it to those with twins or little kids close in age though, I can see how it’d be perfect for those with two very small kids.

  10. momma of twins on January 1st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I looked for months for the perfect stroller! this stroller turns heads and we get comments whenever we take it out. I purchased this one and also purchased the bars to convert into a stroller that held the infant seats. The stroller is great for trips that are worth the hassel of taking it out and assembling it. Zoos, mall, amusment parks etc. my twins are one and love to face each other. it has a large storage basket too. Both seats fully recline which you dont find much in a double stroller so its great for twins or kids that both nap. As for the quick trips to the store or park it is horrible, you have to remove a seat to fold it up and then reasseble. not worth the time if you are in a hurry. It is big and heavy and takes up the enitire storage area in my mini van. Thats why I have mixed feelings it is definetly great for trips when you need the space to carry things and nap time, but as for taking a quick trip in the store or push them in the park I am now looking for something more compact and lighter that will not take up so much space and time in my life!

  11. multi tasker on January 7th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I keep it in my car always It takes up my whole trunk. it is HARD to get in and out so i try not to use it unless i HAVE to. I have not even had it for 8 months & it completly fell apart. the worst part was that it was unexpected.

  12. Katie-mom of 2 on January 12th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Along with others, I have a love/hate relationship with this stroller. If I didn’t have to “assemble” this stroller every time I had to use it, I would say that I LOVE it. Once you are using the stroller it is great…but, it is not the easiest to take in and out of the car. It is also very big. I have a 10 month old and a 2 ½ year old, and they both still fit fine. If your toddler is taller than average, this may not be a good fit for you. You will need to try it out first.

  13. Emily mother of 2 under 2 on January 13th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We bought this stroller on an impulse when I was about 7 months pregnant with our second daughter. I knew we were going to need one, but hadn’t really had time to shop around yet being busy with our 18 month old. We saw this in Babies R Us and tried it out. I had a wrist injury after my first daughter was born and baby gear has to be really easy for me to use it and not reinjure myself. I was really impressed with how easy it was to steer this stroller. And seeing that I could use it without any trouble and it seemed to fit our needs, we bought it. I put it together myself but couldn’t get the parent tray screwed in. My husband did that. My daughter really loves it and we left it set up in our living room for a couple of weeks because she just kept crawling into the seat and wanting to go for a ride. It is bulky, but I don’t think it is really heavy, at least no more so than the single one that came with our infant carseat. I’ve put it in and out of the car being very pregnant. We took the back seat out of our van so it only takes up half of our storage space that way. It is very nice for major outings but can be difficult in stores with smaller aisles. But we mostly wanted it for outings when I was by myself and for that purpose it is great. My toddler is pretty small, not even 25 pounds, but she doesn’t walk very far and I’m not about to try carrying her and her sister! I use the no throw straps to attach toys and sippy cups to the bars on the seats which helps make them more useable. I’m thinking of putting a bicycle basket on the one for my oldest daughter to set toys and snacks in, if I can find one!

  14. Working Jersey mom of 2 on January 16th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    The best thing since sliced bread? No but it definately facilitates my needs. I knew what I was getting into when I made this purchase, it was biased by my toddler’s preference for it in the store but it offered everything I needed. I have a 2.5 year old and a 9 month old. It is suitable for all ages, it offers multiple riding arrangements which is great when you have an infant and toddler, it offers adequate storage underneath for 2 kids, and it’s fairly easy to maneuver. Does it take up a lot of room? yes. I have an SUV so not an issue for me. Is it heavy? Yes, but so are many of the other tandum strollers and even the travel systems so nothing shocking here. I am a mom of 2 c-sections and the weight was not a issue to deal with for me. Yes some assembly and disassembly are required, but it’s just a matter of pressing the side locking buttons on the seat and poof it’s off. It use to take me longer with my travel system stroller than it has with this one. The best part about this stroller I feel is the reclining function of the seats. When the kids get sleepy, you close the canopy and recline the seats and off to sleep they go. Not many stollers offer this feature in a tandum. And it’s a smooth transition to make and doesn’t jostel the kids around. Only downside for me was not getting my ipod docking station it advertised and the wheels are plastic. I’ve had the stroller for a year now and it has held up great!

  15. craftymamaof4 on January 18th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    After reading the reviews I wasn’t sure if I should get this. But I am soooo glad I did!! This stroller is awesome! It is sturdy and I love how it looks. The best thing about it is the versatility of it. I have a 2 1/2 month old and an almost 2 year old. My 2 yr old is a big and tall girl and she fits great in it. I do have a Yukon XL so I have no problem with it fitting in the trunk. I do take off both seats (which is fast and easy to do) when I put it in the trunk. It rolls so smooth and is easier to turn. I am very impressed.

  16. Charity on January 19th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I have 2 kids 18 months apart and this stroller is the best! I love the versatility of it and the ease of use. I can put it in the car and easily get it out and put it together. We love it!

  17. Jssg86 on January 21st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    At first we thought this was going to be too big and heavy and were we wrong. We drive a 99 civic coupe and it fits in the trunk with room to spare. I can easily put it up on my own. My son loves the handles on the side so he can walk or sit. I love the car seat attachment as my youngest is still to small to be in the seat. I love all the space under the kids feet to put things. At times it can be a pain as some stores don’t have wide enough isle’s, but I would not take it back based on that.

  18. double trouble on January 26th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    What a neat concept – to bad is so heavy and huge! This stroller takes up the entire back of my Suburban! I wish it were lighter, I liked the seating flexibility, but cannot stand the bulk. Looking for another double stroller…

  19. Jill w/2 kids 16 mo. apart on January 27th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I did a lot of research on double strollers and the thing I like best about this one is the versatility. In addition the other thing I liked about this was that if my oldest son is taking a nap I can still recline him in the stroller while using an infant carrier for my youngest (this is not the case with other brands). My 17 mo. old loves riding in this stroller where as the single stoller I had before he always wanted out of it. Some other benefits include great storage area and easy to maneuver. Yes this stroller is heavy, but it is not that bad to just get it in and out of the car.

  20. kid sized mom on January 29th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We bought this stroller a year or so back and its wonderful!! Very easy to maneuver, and comfortable for the kids. I love how you can flip the seats around so they can face each other. It is a little heavier but what can you expect from a double stroller? I’m a very small woman (4’10) and I can easily get this in and out of my suv. I would def. recommend this to anyone looking for a sturdy, stylish double stroller!

  21. Mom of 3 under 3 on January 31st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This is one of the only strollers that will take 2 infants fully reclined without carseats, so it was perfect for my infant twins and toddler. I could put any 2 of my 3 kids in it at any time. I liked that I could go for walks with infants not in their carseats, they stayed happier much longer! I agree it is heavy, but very sturdy. You DON’T have to take the seats off to fold it. If you have both seats facing each other and fully upright, it will fold and lock, just watch that the canopy doesn’t catch on the parent tray. I wish instead of the toddler bar it had a snack tray to attach, but I still highly reccomend this. And I didn’t know thi until I bought it, but it will accomodate 2 infant carriers, so if you have twins this can basically be like a snap and go, and then a regular stroller, it would have saved me $100 for the double snap and go if I knew that from the beginning!

  22. Smileymoster on February 2nd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    It is a very nice stroller, it has a huge storage, it’s easy to maneuver, my 19 months boy loves it, it seems comfortable. However it’s way too heavy.

  23. Josie on February 3rd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Get alot of positive comments on looks. Great how you can change position of either seats. Although, it is LARGE, HEAVY AND DIFFICULT TO MANEUVER IF heavier child is in the front seat. Cumbersome as you must set up and break down for each use.

  24. A mother for three little kids on February 7th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    i used it only twice.. i couldn’t use it after because it was too heavy.. i couldn’t pull it from the car and put it back in the car.. also it’s not easy to set it up.. the only thing i liked about it was smooth ride

  25. Twin Mamma 77 on February 9th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    It is the only twin front/back stroller I found that allows for full recline of both seats. Babies also ride higher, and have a better view. It also has great storage capacity which is a plus when you have to go to the market and can’t put your twins in a shopping cart yet. We also bought the side by side Maclaren, and although it is smaller and lighter, I really prefer this one. I used it first with car seats which was a breeze and the included seats are very comfortable and have great canopy cover. It may be a bit cumbersome, but worth it. You also can’t beat the price for the versatility.

  26. TwinMommy on February 10th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We were given this stroller as a gift and we thought it was our answered prayer: We were wrong. We were told that it would fit 2 infant carseats only to find out you have to buy an additional part to use the second carseat on it. It is IMPOSSIBLE to take our twin girls anywhere indoors because this stroller is so long and akward. It is really nice for walks around the neighborhood and unlike other strollers, my extremely tall husband doesn’t have to hunch over to push it:-) It is a really great quality product, just don’t expect to be able to walk around the mall with it.

  27. Ashley Mom of two on February 13th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    When I had my second son I was so overwhelemed with trying to find a stroller that fit them both in it. Since they dont sell in stores you had only reviews to go by to order a stroller. So i did alot of researching and I came to the conclusion that this stroller was the best choice for my 3 year old son and my 8 month old son. Its WONDERFUL. the steering is a little hard but thats expected with a double stroller. It has so many options my children enjoy being in it. It fits both in it well and adjusts at about every spot. It has a lot of storage space underneath and my favorite part of it all was that when my younger son was in an infant car seat it had a snap on for it so i can just set it in there now that he is out of it i can use the seat. Its just a wonderful choice for toddelers and infants

  28. on the go mommy on February 21st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I have the new graco double stroller. my sister purchased this stroller because she wanted something totally differents than me.
    I no longer use my graco! This stroller is so much easier to push than the graco. seats are totally removable. you can put the children facing eachother, facing away from eachother, facing fowards, and facing backwards.
    This strolller just glides across the floor! Easy to stear.
    The only thing we have found is that the seats are a little small for a 3and a half year old, but on the other hand our 3 and a half year olds are way big for their age.
    I would buy this stroller anyday over a graco!

  29. Megan on February 26th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller on a whim after finding out I was pregnant with twins, and couldn’t be happier with it. Easily fits in my coat closet, as well as in the trunk of my car. Both my sons were preemies and I didn’t have any problems with them fitting or being unsupported in the seats. The basket is big enough to fit two diaper bags as well as some small items.

  30. Mom of 2 on February 27th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller! Yes it’s heavy but what double stroller isn’t? Very roomy and comfty for the kids. I got this when my second child was born and my 1st had just turned 2 years old; 1 1/2 year later I’m still using and recommending it.

  31. The Sgt on March 1st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    The stroller is very versatile. I like the combinations that are possible with seating. It is easy to fold and stow, with lots of space underneath for other stuff.
    Also turns easily, yes it is longer, but fits in store aisles, try that with a traditional double wide model. Handling is also great with large wheels. The handles on the sides are nice. When my daughter wants to walk she knows to hold them. Also the seating is better than other like it, they recline, have foot rests, and the kids arent right on top of each other.
    The con, the screws it comes with are cheap and I broke them so I had to get real steel screws. Also the holes do not line up for the handle, maybe it was just mine. I was only able to get one screw in on the left and it doesnt lock right so it pops off sometimes completely sometimes just an inch which makes it kilt to the left. I plan to dril my own hole and put a bigger screw in. So if yours seems to be off set (look at the gap with a carseat on the back between the rails) its probably the same issue, handle not on correctly.
    I wish I could find it in other colors, saw a couple with one in all black one once but can’t find it anywhere
    Overall great stroller. Hope this helps you decide.

  32. deb mother of 4 kids on March 2nd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    It’s greate i love it my kids love it

  33. kelly on March 4th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I LOVE this stroller. I did a lot of research and testing before I bought this and have never looked back. I would highly recommend it.

  34. Mommy of 2 on March 5th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I LOVE this stroller! It fits in my Chevy Cobalt trunk, and there’s still room for groceries. I don’t have any trouble with maneuvering it. It pretty much glides without much force. It is heavy and big, but its a double stroller!

  35. Krismom23 on March 6th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller for the storage, the whole bottom of the stroller can be used for grocery shopping or whatever, especially when you have 2 small ones they have a lot of stuff!I also like that it has the option for the baby carrier or the chair & the baby carrier is universal.You can put the chairs whatever direction you want. When my little one was smaller I had him facing me in the back, but now he wants to see everything so I turned him around.
    I like that the chairs come off when you close the stroller & so it lays pretty flat in the trunk.It is also easy to open.
    The biggest reason I bought this stroller was because I wanted both my boys to be able to recline & drink their bottles or be able to take naps, without their heads falling forward.
    The only thing that could be better is the weight, it is on the heavy side. But you get used to it very quickly. Even though it is heavy it is easy to menouver, since it has the swivel wheels & good shocks.
    I definately recommend this stroller.

  36. mommy of 3 on March 7th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    So I saw this in a Babies R Us store and fell in love with it! It has 2 cup holders, a nice size basket, and I loved that the seats can be moved around to face forward (out) or towards me! Hey, what a great idea! It is, HOWEVER I hate this stroller and wish I would’ve kept the box and reciept so I could take it back. My husband hates it too. It is WAY TOO BIG and bulky. It is VERY HEAVY. It is NOT worth the work. You can’t even fold the stroller up to put it in your car without taking the seats off. Which I was unaware of prior to purchasing it. DO NOT BUY. IT IS A WASTE OF MONEY. If you are thinking of purchasing it, go to a store and try lifting it a few times. I guarantee you will change your mind.

  37. Mommato2girls on March 7th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Nice ride, easy to manuever. I use it for my 29 & 11 m/o’s. Easy to switch seating positions, one hand recline so you don’t have to wake a sleeping baby. Comes with 1 infant carseat bar.

    I love to use it for our indoor/outdoor walks. Its really not that heavy, I have no problem taking in and out of our SUV. It is big, but almost all double strollers are.

    Both my girls seem to love sitting in it with its big cushions.
    I wish I could fit in it!

  38. Triple dad on March 7th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Very good

  39. Sylvia on March 7th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    After reading some of the reviews I almost didn’t buy this, but I’m glad I did. I love it. I have a 2-1/2 year old and a 6 month old and it’s perfect. It’s not that heavy….doesn’t feel any heavier than my chicco travel system with the infant car seat. It moves really well, easy to turn. The basket underneath is a good size and I like that I can have the kids both facing out, or each other, or just one seat instead of two. The only thing I had a concern about is my 2 year old outgrowing the seat, but the bottom is adjustable for his legs, so his legs don’t have to be cramed up. Also, the headrest could go a bit higher, but you can always just throw a rolled blanket in there and it would work. By the way, my toddler thinks it’s ultra cool and loves to be in this stroller and he’s HATED being a stroller since he was an infant. I consider it a win/win!

  40. atleigh~n~ayden's mommy on March 10th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I have twins, and I was looking for something convinent as well as easy to use. Just like all strollers it has a trick to it and once you get used to taking off the seat and folding it up its totally worth the effort. I love the facing seats as well as I can have them facing me. The storage is good but its a little hard to get a bigger diaper bag into and out of the basket. Its really comfy with the head rests and the way the seats recline. I would recommend this to anyone!

  41. Always Keep your Receipt on March 12th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Terrible!!! If you have a Hummer then go on and buy this awkward, huge version of a stroller. It is SOOO impractical it actually hurts. I have an SUV and you can hardly fit it in after removing two not-folding seats and not to mention you need someone else to help you with it. Once assembled it feels like you are pushing a boat on wheels! Oh yeah it has a lot’s of space in under carriage, so does a Hummer…

    I am going to have my second baby in a few months and have endlessly researched double strollers. My children are going to be 13 months apart, so my oldest is still going to be very young and fall asleep in the stroller while out on trips. So one main thing I was looking for was a stroller with both seats that FULLY recline. This is the only one in this price range. ALSO – THE STROLLER WILL FOLD WITH BOTH SEATS ON FACING EACH OTHER! I have tried this stroller out with my current son and my Graco infant SAFE SEAT. We tried every position with both seats. Just takes some time to figure out the “ins & outs” of this stroller. Yes, its heavy, but HELLO – its a double stroller. I would give it 5 stars except – it does take some time to get figure it all out.

  43. Momof3 on March 14th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I love my stroller. We use it all the time! It is heavy, but all double strollers are! My twins can face each other, face out or face me. You can also fully recline both seats at the same time. With most tandem strollers you can not recline the front seat all the way. It is rugged and sturdy. I feel that it is well worth the money. The only thing I wish it had was snack trays. But from what I hear you can order them.

  44. supermomoftwins on March 16th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I purchased this item after carefully reviewing the comments on this site. I thought…sure it may be heavy but it’s for two! The seats recline…great, cup holders…check, many seat configurations…wonderful!
    After putting it together…very disappointing. I immediately put my 10 month old twins in their seats facing each other and legs were overlapping. I tried to recline them as they were both facing away from me and the legs on my poor son were smashed. When I had him reclined without getting his legs cramped, his head flopped around even with the insert. The visors don’t block out enough of the sun like I would have liked.
    The only thing that I can recommend is be sure that your children are with you when you try this out at the store. I’m sure it’s great for some people and the reason that I’m writing this is because it wasn’t for us.
    Save your receipt and the box!!! 🙂

  45. iluvbeingmama on March 16th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I want to love this stroller. It looks so good and I love the options. Good contruction and very easy to turn and move.
    BUT your child has to fit in it!!
    My 2 year old had her knees in her chest and head hangs over the head area. I couldn’t even harness her with a jacket on. She is 31 lbs and 34″. If you have smaller kids you’ll be ok, but mine are tall.

    I called the company and this is the biggest seat they make. They were passing my info on.

    It is also heavy, but I expected that.
    We are now searching for another stroller.

  46. Brooke on March 17th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I have no idea why some of the moms are complaining about this stroller being heavy. What do you expect? Its a DOUBLE stroller of course its going to be heavy. I was looking at this stroller at the store, and the employee that was helping me let us take it to the car to see if it would fit in my trunk. It fit perfectly, and i have a Mazda 3 Sedan! We were also able to put my son in it and He loved it. My son will be 15 months when his little brother will be born. I plan on buy this stroller. Its a great price too!

  47. TJ on March 20th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Great stroller. Love the seats and different ways they turn. They also remove and snap in super easy. The stroller is VERY lightweight compared to other strollers i’ve tried. I can load it without wishing I had another person to help lift it. Only have to remove 1 seat to fold but wish I didn’t have to remove any. However, it’s not a problem at all given how the seat lays flat and ease of taking it on and off. Wish this product came in a triple!!! It would be ideal!!! Has been the best so far.

  48. Janice on March 26th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I did tons of research on strollers before purchasing this one. This stroller fits my needs (I have a 2 year old and a 5 week old) just fine. I love how the seats can be changed in so many different positions. It is really easy to maneuver and isn’t terribly heavy. I don’t have trouble lifting it into my SUV and I don’t consider myself strong at all. Two things that I don’t like about it are that there are no snack trays for the kids and the sunshades don’t block enough sun if the seats are reclined. Overall I think this is a great stroller.

  49. Bonez on March 29th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    its not light but u can still work with it,

  50. Kristine on March 29th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I have a 2 year old and a 3 month old. This is one of the only double strollers that our Chicco car seat will truly fit in (I did a lot of research). I read all of these reviews before testing it in the store and buying it. Most of these reviews are right:
    -you need an SUV b/c it is very large when collapsed
    -you have to dissemble the seats b/f folding and storing (you get good at it pretty fast)
    -it is heavy
    BUT! Despite these few things–It is a great stroller- My 2 year old gets to face forward in the FRONT (unlike many others!). He loves it. The baby is closest to me in her car seat facing me! We went to the National Zoo and the basket underneath is AWESOME!! It fit a huge teacher bag, jackets, large camera bag, and a small cooler! And we could actually get to the items easily. I would definitely recommend this stroller to friends. It maneuvers wonderfully-even on mulch at playgrounds! Great value!

  51. Chasing 3 kids on little sleep!!! on March 31st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller! It is perfect for my 4 month old and 2 year old. My only complaint is that the seat for the toddler where they put their feet is not big enough, they hang over the seat

  52. Proud Godmommy on March 31st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller for my godkids. They are now 1month old. The parents love it. but their only concern is folding the stroller you have to position the adjustable seats a certain way for the stroller to close. Which is time consuming if you are carrying twins. Other then that its a good stroller. It goes by stages, (A grow with me stroller).

  53. Twins on board on April 2nd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Pros: This is one of the sturdiest strollers I have ever seen. Very easy to use and maneuver. Our twin 8-month old boys enjoy facing each other.

    Cons: HEAVY! I cannot load it into the trunk. We had to buy a lighter stroller for traveling in the car. I use the Kolcraft to take daily walks in the park and when my husband is around.

  54. Sno_bunee on April 3rd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I have had this Stroller for 2 years now and still LOVE it.. My son is three and tall but can still sit in it with no problem.. The canopy is angled right so it still fits over his head.. it has a ton of miles on it and is still rockin.. Ever since I bought this one, everywhere I go I get stopped.. always asked the same questions.. “Do I like it”… no.. I LOVE IT.. People have told me they were going to check it out.. It is heavy and you do have to take the seats off but it takes more time getting the kids in the car and all the stuff than it does getting this apart and in my camry’s trunk.. I did my homework on this 2 years ago and I am glad I did.. so worth the money.. just needs cup holders for the kids.. but not a huge deal.. obviously..

  55. Sarah on April 3rd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I really like this stroller for many of the same reasons that other moms mentioned…seat positioning, durability, easy to manuever, etc. I have 6 month old twins and they seem to love it…especially when they can face eachother! My only complaint is that it is so heavy! However, it’s a double stroller so that kind of goes with the territory!

  56. shakira1031 on April 5th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    THIS STROLLER IS VERY MODERN, BUT ITS VERY HEAVY AND BIG.. IT DOES NOT FIT IN MY CAR AND AS MUCH AS I THINK ITS CUTE. I CANT USE IT. I HAVE A TOYOTA ECHO. IF YOU HAVE A TRUCK OR MAYBE A BIG CAR AND YOU ARE A VERY STRONG WOMAN. BUY IT.. IF NOT WELL, OPT FOR SOMETHING. EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE TO CONSIDER THAT STROLLERS FOR 2. ARE KIND OF HEAVY. 🙂

  57. Proud Grandma on April 5th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller for my two grandsons and was amazed at the things this stroller does. I have recommended this to alot of other grandparents.

  58. MOM OF TWO on April 8th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    THIS STROLLER IS HEAVY, BIG, AND TERRIBLE. IT DOESN’T DRIVE WELL ON ANYTHING EXCEPT SIDEWALKS. MY TWO YEAR OLD DOESN’T FIT IN IT. YOU HAVE TO TAKE THE SEATS OFF EVERY TIME YOU WANT TO FOLD IT UP TO GET IT IN YOUR CAR. IT DOESN’T STEER WELL.

  59. Foster Mom on April 9th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I checked out this stroller and others in the store. I was even able to bring the children in and push them around in it to test it out. This one was, by far, the smoothest ride. It is so durable, too! I love that the seats can change positions- and it’s very easy to do! I do not think this stroller is unusually heavy like other owners have said. It fits easily into the back of my small SUV. It can be folded up with one seat left in, but to be the most compact, both seats need to be removed. The seats recline with one hand and it’s not a “jerky” transition for the child- it’s a smooth swing like motion. The bars across the seat are removable, but handy to have on there to help babies hold up their bottles when you are walking. I love it and am glad I bought this one!

  60. Jackie on April 15th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Product was easy to assemble.Seats are a [*] to turn around, and don’t hardly recline. The basket looks huge, but once the seats are on, it’s hardly even accessible.VERY difficult to fold by yourself. Doesn’t fold up very small, even compared with other double strollers. You have to remove one of the seats to fold it up, which is another [*].You practically need an SUV to lug it around. Doesn’t steer well at all. Has essentially no shocks, so any even mildly uneven terrain will make your child bonce out of their seat.Used it for 2 months before I sold it, and bought something else. Blech.

  61. heather on April 18th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I LOVE THIS STROLLER SO MUCH !! it’s a little heavy but it’s a double stroller – what do you expect? it’s so smooth and it fits easy in the tight isles of baby gap ;)! my 16 month old daughter LOVES it, she cried when i took her out. & the little section where you can put an infant seat is so perfect! i’m glad i didn’t get a different stroller!

  62. Andrea D on April 18th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I received this stroller as a gift from my family. I have a 2 year old (almost 3) and now an 8 months old. I have been using this stroller for 8 months now and I STILL LOVE IT. It has a really smooth ride (even when I ran with it) and is easy to move around. I’ve read other reviews about this item saying it is hard to drive & is heavy … I think these people are used to SINGLE strollers. It takes a little while to get use to but face it … THIS STROLLER IS FOR TWO KIDS NOT 1. I ALSO RECOMMEND MY STROLLER TO PARENTS OF LITTLE ONES AND I WOULD BUY IT AGAIN. I have a Jetta and it fits in my truck when it is empty. It really cool how you can chande the position of your kids around too. Right now I have my 8 month old facing his brother so I can still see what he is doing. So there you have it a real review for an EXCELLENT ITEM!

  63. Mommy of Twins on April 19th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This is the only stroller (we have 4) that my twin girls will ride in without screaming. It is great, because the seats can face any direction. Mine like to face each other, and there aren’t many strollers with that option. It is easy to fold, and while it is pretty heavy, I can manage it by myself. The seats recline all the way to sleep position easily and without waking a sleeper. I like that it stands alone when folded (no tipping over) and the storage underneath. The only thing we don’t love about this stroller is that it doesn’t have a snack tray/cupholder feature (unless you count the parent one, which is nice) but we bought some that strap on to the safety bars. GREAT stroller for twins – infants all the way up to when they won’t sit in it anymore because they are embarassed. 🙂

  64. TKS on April 21st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    The first day we used this stroller the removable parent tray broke right off. It is definitely heavy and fairly bulky. I don’t think the seats are tall enough (my 2.5 yr old’s head is higher than the back of the seat), and the seats are very shallow. You can not have the two seats facing each other as there isn’t enough leg room–knocking knees. I do like how I can adjust the seats in different directions. If I was faced with buying this stroller again, I would have to say, no, I would not buy it again.

  65. Monika on April 21st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I loved it for the first year, but as my kids got heavier it became harder to push. We used it a lot and after a year a half it got wobly and difficult to push. The fact that you need to remove the seats was always a pain but I prefered if over those strollers that barely fold at all.

  66. Mother of 3 on April 23rd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Don’t know how I would have survived without it! i love the fact that it fits my Peg Perego carrier and that the seats are easily changed around so no one is getting full sun in their eyes. The only problem we had was the wheel falling off when I folded it up the first few times- but we just didn’t have it clicked in well. It is heavy, but fits fine in my SUV trunk.

  67. Proud Mama on April 28th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I love this product. It has been a huge lifesavor. I have two kids a 2 yr old and a 4 mo old. My kids sit in this stroller very comfortably. Yes it is a little bulky and a little heavy but that does not bother me at all. I would buy this stroller again and I have recommended it not just to friends but people that walk by and ask about it

  68. Mom of two. on April 28th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    It’s pretty heavy but I think any double stroller is going to be heavy. I love that it fits through doors and in aisles. It’s super comfy for my 2 year old and my 6 month old.

  69. mother of twins on April 29th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    The Contours Options stroller handles really well, I can steer it with one hand! My girls love the option of facing each other. The seat position options are fantastic. The basket is easier to access than in other strollers. It folds up easy, even though you have to take out the seats, which doesn’t take much time. The frame is a bit heavy, but really, for the cargo it carries, it is justified. It isn’t too heavy for me to lift into my vehicle.

  70. maggie on May 2nd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Great!!!! The only feature it is missing is the tray for the kids….but they are so entertained by looking at each other it really does not matter. It is worth the time to remove the seats to fold it. I can fit it in the trunk of my passat! I looked long and hard…this stroller is really great!

  71. TT Mom on May 3rd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Too bulky; impossible to fold by myself; difficult to steer; heavy and awkward; basket difficult to access with both seats occupied. You have to remove seats to fold and put in car; too time consuming as a mom running around with 2 little ones. I was very disappointed with this stroller and would advise everyone make a different choice.

  72. Too many kids on May 7th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I have had this stroller for over a year now and it has been amazing! It’s is incredibly simply to open/close and put together. The infant care seat attachment was amazing. I just took my youngest daughter straight from the car and put her in the stroller with out ever taking her out of her car seat (which was a hand me down seat from 3 children ago so it didn’t “match” but still fit perfectly). My infant now sits in the seat as normal and my eldest loves holding onto the handles on the side thinking she’s assisting me in pushing it. I have gone on two vacations with this and on so family outings it’s been a life saver. The amount of storage space on the bottom is magnificent as well. Every where I go everyone asks where they can find one.

  73. amber on May 7th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    i really like this stroller; it works really well for both of my kids.

  74. MommyMom on May 9th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We were given a Graco double stroller as a gift when my second child was born, but neither my husband nor I ever liked it. Sure, it folded easily, but we really hated everything else about it. So we purchased this stroller and LOVE it!!! My daughter is just over two, and in the 95+% in height, and she fits just fine into the stroller. We have tried all of the available seat positions, and never encountered a problem. Just know what you’re getting into before purchasing. This is a double stroller, it is going to be heavy!Although it says not to, we have used it as a jogging stroller, so it’s very solid. It’s also going to take a few minutes longer to put it into the car. But I’ve never really let that bother me. It’s a small price to pay for the versatility of this stroller.

    Oh, and the chairs only take a split-second to pop out of the stroller. It’s really not a hassle at all!!

  75. Mom of 18 month old twins on May 13th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    LIke that I can move the seats around. LOVE that I can go into places I NEVER would have thought about going with my other strollers — yes I have gone through a few and could not find the perfect one until now! It’s a bit heavy but aren’t they all???

  76. Mommy x2 on May 14th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This is the best stroller, its super easy to put together and use, it maneuvers very easily and I love that it holds infant car seats and comes with toddler chairs for when the babies get older. The only complaint I have about it is that its a little on the heavy side. Other than that its a wonderful stroller. I would definitely recommend it to anyone with twins.

  77. Mom of Irish Twins on May 19th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    First off, I love the way it looks. I love that you can position the seats in various ways. It’s on the bulky side however and to really shrink it when putting in the trunk you need to detach both seats which means more time to set up when putting and removing the kids. It’s heavy and I can barely lift it to put in my Acura trunk.As a mom of a 17month & a 3month old I love the large baskett. This stroller looks and feels steardy and have a feeling it will not wear out any time soon.

  78. Mom of 4 on May 25th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    LOVE this stroller. My twins are 3 and are hard to keep track of. Weve gone through several strollers, tandems and side by sides. The girls always ended up pestering each other so when my friend got this I had to get it as well. I wish I had this from the time they were newborns would have saved me alot of money and saved my sanity from fighting twins.

    It is big, I had a hard time getting it in the SUV at first, the duoglider fit much better, but its worth it.

  79. tila the busy momi on May 27th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    good but too heavy perfect for newborn and toddler

  80. BronxMommyof5 on May 29th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Since my Twins were born, I have used this carriage for traveling everywhere. I love the fact that it is so versatile,Lighter than most double carriages,Folds Easily,Has enough storage for many things,Has the handles for my other children to hold onto when crossing the street, is a Steal at about [$] compared to other double carriages. I do not like the fact that we had to purchase the other car seat attachment separately, There is no tandem rain cover made especially for this stroller, you cannot ride the subway or bus with this stroller if you’re by yourself, and one thing that worries me is the fact that the screws to the handles get loose and you have to keep checking them to make sure they stay put or put super glue to make sure they stay in place.

  81. danceteacher1 on June 4th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller! I had to buy the extra carrier base ($30.00) and I love being able to just pop the carriers in. Turns and handles great. A bit cumbersome (at first) to get in and out of the car, but now its not a problem once I figured it out. Lots of storage. Easy to open, but a bit tough to close. Great to go shopping because it fits in the aisles and doorways. Haven’t put the big seats in yet, but sure it won’t be a problem. highly recommend this to all twin parents

  82. Matt&AJsmom on June 6th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This is the best stroller ever!

  83. Mommy-2-B of 3 on June 7th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I have a 2 1/2 yr old and a 15-month old and I have had this stroller since my youngest was born. I absolutely love the options and the versatility. I have used every single combination that it offers, especially as the girls get older and either like to entertain themselves facing each other, or need to be separated and sit back-to-back.

    My oldest is very tall and I was becoming concerned about her legs being too long for the foot-rest, but now that we are expecting #3 I’m glad that we will continue to get good use out of it. We get SO many compliments on the stroller, and I love that I didn’t have to be concerned about the color/design when we found out we were having another. It’s very neutral and all of my friends constantly ask questions about it.

    Yes, it is on the heavier side, but thanks to other reviews, I was able to consider that before I bought it. I don’t use it on a daily basis, so that hasn’t bothered me at all. It’s definitely worth it for all of the other benefits. Now if I can just find some way to make this work so my oldest can have a sit/stand option when the new baby comes, that would be ideal. I really don’t want to get another stroller.

  84. Busy Busy mom of 4 on June 12th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I love love love it

  85. Lindy mom of 2 on June 15th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I was shocked how easy it is to push and get around. It is big, but it does EVERYTHING!!! Even getting it up on the curb is very easy, just push down on the handle and it picks right up. Even with the toddler in the front and baby in back. Only downside it does take a while to prep everytime u use it, but I think all doubles do.

  86. MrJBot on June 15th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    The first double stroller we got was a Graco. It worked okay when we first got it but as the girls started to get bigger, the worse it became to push. With this Kolcraft stroller it doesn’t take any effort at all to push. It’s the smoothest ride your kids will get. Also, the girls seemed a lot less irritable in this one, which I can only guess it to be more comfortable as well. Yes, it is expensive, but the benefits outweigh the cost.

  87. Jack and Mac's Mom on June 18th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Great stroller. Easy to use. I have taken it through the airport and hiking. You need a big trunk to have this stroller. It folds up nicely but is still a big stroller. The twins are 8 months old and love to face each other. We get a lot of attention with this giant red stroller. Lots of room underneath for storage and shopping.

  88. Di on June 23rd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Loved the large storage space on the bottom of this stroller. Started falling apart about 4-6 weeks after I bought it. Wouldn’t let me return it (bought as a shower gift before i was 6 mos pregant) & wouldn’t fix it. Handle screws broke off, replaced them. Whole handle broke off.
    Cheap plastic.
    Would not reccomend.

  89. Mom on the go on June 25th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller shortly after my second child was born. We already had a almost 4 year old daughter. I did a lot of research prior to making the purchase and decided on this stroller. My almost 4 year old fits in it just fine and she loves the way the seats lay back. I love the size of the basket and that I can take one seat off and use it while shopping with just one child. The infant seat attachment is great, I loved the fact that it works with most any infant seat big plus. Yes it is a little bulky but the fact that it holds both kids and I no longer have to pack two strollers for family outings is all worth it. I will recommend this stroller to all my friends that have more than one child.

  90. rory calhoon on June 30th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    The selling point was that the babies could face each other! I get TONS of compliments every time I go out with it. It has great storage I just leave everything I need for the park in the basket, jackets, sand toys, snacks,ect. But the con are that its big, bulky and heavy! After a year of hard use the drink tray broke off and the handle is coming apart. I haven’t asked the company f they would replace the parts yet and I think that will be the deciding factor.

  91. Selena on July 1st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I have a two year old son and a one year old daughter and was looking for a stroller that would be suitable for them. I first seen this stroller when I was pregnant with my one year old. My dad suprised me with it when she was a few months old. I loved that I could use it with her car seat. It was so awesome until it started falling apart. First it was the handle, the screw kept coming out. Then one of the front wheels popped off while my mother was pushing my babies. I know the wheels are meant to come off but it’s ALWAYS the one front wheel that comes off repeatedly when the stoller is in motion. I purchased the extended warranty so I will be looking into returning this stroller for one that’s hopefully safer for my children. If you have this stroller and you aren’t having these problems I’m jealous because I really did love this stroller at one time!!!

  92. Jenn mom of 2 only 11m apart on July 4th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    It works great for my needs. I have a 16m old and a 5m old and they love being with eachother and this stroller lets them face eachother. It is easy to use. It is a lettle heavy but easy to manuver anywhere.

  93. mom of twins on July 7th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I bought this for my 8 month old twins when they were outgrowing their graco duo. This stroller is just what I was looking for. I love how they can face each other or me or not. Once I put them in it they just lit up! We go for walks and they enjoy it so much! It turns really great, and easily. It is compact (for a double stroller) and it is heavier than my last stroller but I can still pick it up. The babies have so much room. Some people may say it is too long, but what do you expect, you need the room!! The storage is big as well. I really love it!

  94. Cami and Chloe's Mommy on July 7th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is used all the time. Especially when we are in the store because it fits nicely down eisles. The infant seat adapter is wonderful, the only downfall is that the stroller only comes with one, so we had to order another one. The stroller is also heavy and bulky when folded. This stroller will grow with your children and is a ride they will enjoy.

  95. Robrobb on July 15th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This is a great product. It was easy to put together and works VERY well for my 1 year old and newborn. This is only prodect I found that I could use my car seat for the newborn as well as have a regular stroller seat for my 1 year old. The tires are a bit bigger than the average stroller so I’ve been able to use it comfortably when I go for long walks. The only drawback is it is about 50 pounds- but I don’t think the other dual strollers are much lighter.

    I have a 2 1/2 year old and a 10 month old and I love this stroller! It’s heavy but that is to be expected with a double. I love the options it comes with especially the different ways to face the seats. The only thing that I’m not super fond of is the fact that it folds up better with only one seat attached but it really isn’t that hard to just take one off. The seats recline, there are the umbrella things to shade from sun or rain and I have the carseat adapter with mine and it fits my Graco carseat just great. Also, even with being so big it maneauvers GREAT!

    Our daughter has a trach and occasionally requires a ventilator while we’re out and about. Finding a double stroller that could hold all of her equipment was a real chore and I was beginning to loose hope! I saw this at a Babies R Us while I was out of town and bought it on the spot.

    There’s plenty of room for all her equipment. We put the vent battery, vent, and pulse ox on the back seat. (It’s THAT sturdy that it can hold all of that!) Then the suction machine goes under our daughter’s seat, and her food bag and diaper bag fill up the rest of the bottom compartment. We hang her feeding pump from the handle and voila – works perfectly.

    I love how easy it is to recline the seat. If our daughter wants to get a view of the world, I just sit her up and once she doses off I recline the seat and she doesn’t even notice.

    The straps are a bit big for her and you can tell Kolcraft intended for parents to use an infant seat with it until the child outgrows it, but even with loose straps I know my daughter is safe. Also, I have to take the seats off in order for the stroller to fit in my van. Having to do that makes me think that an ordinary dual stroller wouldn’t have fit.

    I attached a picture of us on a walk without her ventilator. Without the vent, we were able to put her MASSIVE emergency medical bag inbetween the seats.

    It is large, but it was by far the best and sturdiest option that I could test in a store that was compatible with a Britax Companion seat. (I’ve heard good things about some of the online only ones but I have trouble buying something I’ve never seen) It does fit into the trunk of a Toyota Prius rather easily which surprised me(if I remove the seat my 2.5 yr old sits in, but fortunately the seat is very easy to get on and off)It’s a very smooth ride, it’s just heavy. It takes more effort to unfold than I was used to but it’s ok and no more jumping curbs since I can’t get the leverage to get the front wheels up. Another pro would be the large storage basket.

    I had to purchase a new stroller when Delta broke my Graco on a trip with my family. This was the only double stoller we could find. The first problem was having to take the front seat off to get it to close completely, and even that it is still very bulky. Two days after returning home the drink holder fell off. My children (ages 2 and 1) are uncomfortable in the very shallow seats. Now, I am constantly fighting with the handle which comes off when you open it. The final straw was when I put the stoller in the car from the garage to go to a store, 45 minutes away. When we got there and I started to unload the children, I realized that one of the wheels came off and was in the garage at home uuuggggghhhh. That rendered me strollerless. Bottom line, the stroller looks sleek and the reversable seats are a nice trick, but the heavy, bulky, very breakable stroller is not worth the money. I could just scream everytime I think of my origional stoller.

    GREAT ITEM, VERY VERSITILE. OUTSTANDING HANDLING. LOTS OF BASIC SPACE.
    MY DAUGHTER LOVES TO CLIM IN AND OUT AND HOLD ONTO THE PROVIDED HANDLE STRAPS SOMETIMES.
    SOMETIME WE PUT OUR 7MONTH OLD IN THE CAR CARRIER UNIT OR JUST IN A SEAT HE LIKES BOTH.
    RECLINES GREAT, EASY TO CLEAN, FOLDS UP REALLY SMALL AND QUICKLY.
    I GET ASKED ALL THE TIME ABOUT IT FROM PARENTS NOW EXPECTING A SECOND.
    BOTTOM LINE ITS THE BEST YOU COULD EVER BUY AND IF YOU GET IT YOU’LL WITH OUT SEE THE DIFFERENCE WHEN OTHERS WITH DBL WIDES CANT MAKE IT DOWN AN ISLE OF ONES WITH THE SAME SINGLE LINE IDEA BUT NOT THE ABILITY TO REARRANGE THE SEATING.

    I ONLY WISHED IT CAME IN OTHER COLORS.

    I liked this stroller but it didnt fit what i wanted it for. I know this is a full sized pram but i found it overly big. The other problem i had was when i put my 18 month old in the front seat it was incredibly top heavy (he weighs 25lb). If i used this stroller for mall trips i would imagine it to be perfect, or for twins, but for my 18 month and new born it didnt work. It was made really well and i loved the different combinations etc. but all in all, not for me as i dont think it would be easy to manueuver around my town.

    I spent months researching strollers before I baught this one. When I was buying, I brought my older son – 18 mos at the time – to try it out. Both my sons enjoy this stroller, they ask to go for walks and to the park with the stroller. The options to switch the seats around are very useful. The large basket is great; diaper bags, winter coats, shopping bags, snacks, and drinks all fit. This stroller handles better then the single stroller we used for my older son. Since I baught this stroller over a year ago, I have not used my single stroller (even when taking just one child). Yes, this stoller is heavy, but it is very sturdy and safe. It fits in the trunk of my Corolla and is easier to fold then my old single stroller. The only feature I wish the stroller had is side cupholders. My younger son does not mind setting his cup next to him on the seat, but my older son asks for a cup holder.

    This is a great stroller. My sister barrowed it when she was searching for a double stoller; she liked it so much she baught her own.

    We purchased this stroller when our second was born. Our kids are 15 months apart and it seemed like such a great stroller. Well after 3 months of use, basically just once a week, screws started to fall out. While I was using it, the handle came completely off on the right side!

    It also is extremely heavy and not that easy to switch seats. Plus to fold it up you can only have 1 seat in it. I really like the storage, the cup holders, and the theory of the versatility-but it doesn’t really work well in real life.

    It is for my daughter-in-law and she was pleased with the stroller.

  105. Posh Mom on August 14th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    My husband & I love this stroller. We have a 15 month old & a 2 month old & we couldn’t ask for more. Plenty of storage space in the basket, easy to maneuver, a little heavy, but hey, it’s a double stroller. We’ve been using this since our youngest was born. There is no problem with balancing the weight either. Our newborn was 8 lbs & our 1 year old was 28 lbs. So, the person who complained about the weight issue, I don’t know what happened to your stroller, but it is definitely worth the price!!!

  106. Mommy of 2 girls on August 17th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This is a great stroller. I have a 15 month old and a 2 week old, and I love this stroller! Yes, it is a bit heavy, but all double strollers are. It folds up very compact- I compared others in the store and this one folded up the smallest, plus when open it has the most leg room for both kids then other double strollers. I have a Honda Civic Coupe and it fits great in the small trunk. Very happy with this purchase!!

  107. Toddler & Swaddler Momma on August 21st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    After having a breakdown with our Graco double stroller, my Husband & I were forced to find a replacement (thank god for the replacement plan we bought). We looked at this stroller & played with the other ones. Yes, the down side is that you have to remove the seat to fold it BUT it’s better than having to remove the sunshade & trays having everything fall apart on my Graco. Our Girls are 18 mons apart & very tall for their ages, it fits my toddler comfortable Vs. the other brands of stroller (10 mons 20 lbs 35 in. & 2 yr old is 23 lbs 40 in.). Other strollers had my 2 yr old up against the sunshade, when you live in Riverside, it’s a necessity for your children. Just remember to always buy the 15 month replacement plans (they are a life saver!!) Its worth it when your stroller fails!!

    We purchased this stroller last year. A friend recommended this stroller to me and I’m glad she did. When we bought the stroller my middle son was a year and my youngest was 2 months old. So having this stroller was really nice for us. There are several positions you can put the seats in and the shade is perfect for them. It covers their faces nicely unlike some other strollers. There’s a long storage unit underneath which comes in handy when you’re shopping. The stroller glides as you walk around the store.I do like how the seats come out. The price does seem fair for what you’re getting. It is a bit heavy but most double strollers are like that.

  109. mother of twins on August 26th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    we love this stroller! yes the base is heavy but it is only lifted in & out of the car so i look at it as helpful in shaping my biceps 🙂 there is tons of room in the basket & it is accessible from the front & back unlike other stroller baskets. the options of seat direction is awesome especially when strolling at different times of the day, the kids never have the sun in their eyes! no complaints here!

  110. Grandma G on August 27th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This is the best quality and most versatile double stroller I found. […] Easy to assemble. Grandsons love it, and parents do too!
