    This is a wonderful stroller to use, but it does not come with the carseat adapter. I contacted the manufacturing company before purchase and this stroller is not compatible with carseat adapter.

    This stroller is the best value for a busy mom needing to go with two kiddos! Its great for infant to toddlers, I have a 7 week old and a 20 month old, and they both enjoy our daily walks. I love how the front wheel can swivel or be stationary and its such a smooth ride. Easy assembly, nice fabric and color. The only complaint for us was the straps were very hard to move from slot to slot to make room for our toddler.

    The stroller allows for a smooth ride. I have a 2 1/2 yr old and a 4 month old. The weight difference is no problem. I don’t like that the front wheel has to stay in the locked position when I run b/c when I turn, it’s awkward. I also don’t care for the canopy that catches the wind so well when going down hill.

    I recieved this product today, and although i have not had a chance to ‘wear it in/or out’ so to speak…it has been the best for its money that I have seen so far. I am 9months pregnant and was able to assemble it myself. The stroller itself is very sturdy and I love the swivel wheel option. Not only does it provide plenty of storage room on the bottom but it also has a convienant drink holders/mesh compartments on top for the parents. I particulary like that each seat is separate from eachother which makes it optimum for kids of different ages or wieghts…I experimented with a wieght ;-). Both seats are also independantly adjustable, which doesnt sound like too big of a perk, but for a newborn and a toddler its essential–so one can sit up and the other can lay safely. Both seats also have a 5point harness, great for security and once again for newborns or smaller kids (so they dont slump over). I live in the desert and our street is more like gravel, the wheels worked smootly and the ride was really nice. I am inpressed with the quality of the product and what I got for the price. I hope it proves to exceed my expectations in the years to come. Hope this was helpful for someone else. Only issue was with the assembly directions, I realized that I was hunting for a front fender and screws to attach for like 15min and realized it already came assembled, the directions are geared more for the single stroller–so dont panic they didnt forget to send a part, its already attached! 😉

    I ordered this stroller on-line without having seen it inperson. kinda wish I had, the fabric that holds the whole thing together is really, really cheap. I’m worried my toddlers are going to rip it to shreds! My single jogger is 10 yrs old and in excellent shape… I guess they don’t make ’em like they used to. BUT, the stroller handles very well and easy to push-swivel wheels rock!

    My 9 month old twins are comfortable in this stroller. However, the back is made up of either compressed wood or heavy duty cardboard that breaks and bends easily. Ours broke in tow some how and now one of the seats is unusable because it does not adequately support the baby. He is slouched init. We are working with instep to solve this, hope they stand by their product.

    Where to start…I bought this stroller about 2 months ago after having the Baby Trend double jogger. These 2 companies need to get together to combine this product and it may be perfect then! I love the huge basket underneath…with 2 kids (4 and 14 months) and always going to the theme parks here, its nice to store things there. I like the bar in front. I just attach little cup holders for the boys and they are set! Thats about all I like about this stroller. What I don’t like is the canopy is not very big and blows back in the wind. I wish it were adjustable like the Baby Tend jogger had. The stroller is hard to clean since you can not detach it. The back of the seats are made of plastic or some kind of cardboard. My son already broke that just by sitting in the stoller wrong. It is too wide to fit through standard doors. I have to remove a back wheel just to make it through the gate at the Magic Kingdom at Disney World. I also have to remove the wheels to put it in my car (Hyundai Tucson). It only folds in half so it is still pretty big when folded. I will be looking for a smaller lightweight stroller to purchase. I heard the Peg Perego Aria Twin is pretty good so we will see. I will just sell this at a rummage sale now.

    I love this stroller but — I have the same problem at Magic Kingdom and until recently I did not know about the removable wheel (my fault) we would lift the stroller over the gate. I wish it could get through standard doors without the work. I love the basket can take a cooler and diaper bag along with snacks everywhere. I wish it had a snack bar for the kids to there snacks in because the snacks go everywhere and it is hard to clean. But I am really happy with it since there isn’t the perfect stroller out there for more than one child. Maybe they could work on that.

    this is an EASY to push stroller- big basket, nice cup mesh thing that actually holds cups adn a tiny purse! phone etc. (I have a peg aria twin that holds no drink in it’s holder) however be warned- anyone who says it goes through doors is NOT talking about standard doors. I can NOT get it through a bathroom door at the mall. It does not go through a bathroom door that a wheel chair can fit through. The wheels stick out too far. I tried to go to the bathroom at […], nope, the main bathroom door is too small. You can not “jimmy” this beast in!The canopy is great but would be nice if it locked, you just push it and it pretty much stays open. I can stick it in my Honda Piolet trunk wiht a little heav-ing. It is heavy, but doable. Great for walks in the neighborhood- jsut take it through the gargage. It will not fit through my front door. I know I repeat this, but some reviewers say they have no problem, if you manuver some, my husband tried it too, short of almost breaking the stroller and scratching up our door, and cramming it through sidways sort-of: it does not fit through.Pushing like a dream, turns like a dream. The 5 point harness is a little much for my 2 year old twins, I just snap the belt part and leave the straps on the side, they are connected to the buckle though, good to note. The grab bar is a littel far for them, but works. I really miss the Aria twin snack tray,a dn am going to try to fashion something to hold snacks on the bar. (note do not use bar when trying to get stroller in trunk, it pops off and stroller will crash to ground) 🙂 The seats are comfy for them we have used it at theme parks and no problems (again the bathroom) The canopy does not have a hole for you to see them, but pushed very (too) easily. So as long as you can get the double doors open (and more people are amused at seeing you do it then help!) and push the stroller through, and have a big bladder (or kids who will not put their hands in the toliet if they are not in a stroller) this is a GREAT stroller. It really is easy to push, an dI deal with the door issues, because it turns on a dime. The Peg Aria was smaller, (I could get through a standard door) but it was really hard to turn and manuver (the boys are 26 pounds each- the max in these are 50 Lbs each) I find myslef using this stroller more becuase of that. and again, as a jogging and walking stroller fantastic

    Works perfect for our speed walks, light weight and ease of assembly, makes this double stroller a must have for walking Moms/Grans!

  11. me on May 22nd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I use this to go walking on the boardwalk at night with my husband and the kids – we all love it

    It is so easy to push!!

    I wish it folded up a little smaller but other than that I have no complaints

  12. Holly, mom of 3 on June 3rd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Good price for the product. I use it for going on walks around our neighborhood for my younger two (ages 2 and 7 months). It’s a little heavy, but I haven’t found a durable double stroller out there that isn’t.

  13. Nan on July 2nd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    A walk in the park is so easy with this stroller, as easy to walk in the grass as well as pavement.The girls love to go for a ride. The netting is especially nice to keep out the insects as well as a sun sheild.

  14. veronica on July 11th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    love this product my 1month old and my 2yr old fits great in this stroller. smooth ride not as heavy as i thought it would be but still heavy. love the cup holders. i take a walk every afternoon with my kids and they pass out in this stroller. the only reason i rated it a 4 and not 5 is b/c i cant see whats goin on inside if the shade in down. i have to stop and walk to the front of the stroller. wish it had a peak hole on top of the shade so i can make sure my 2yr old is not bothering the 1month old. but other than that love this stroller i would recommend it to anyone. and someone said it does not go throgh standard doors i have no problem getting into stardard doors.

    I am a first time parent of a 15 month old, and I bought this stroller for her and my niece who is only 6weeks younger. They travel alot together, and although the stroller doesn’t fold well it is very suitable for our needs. And the kids love it. However it doesn’t fold well, very big.Thank God we have a Suburban.

  16. Busy mom of 2 on August 23rd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Has been very useful. Used it on a long plane trip, loaded up the kids in it as well as the carry-ons and diaper bags! Fits through a standard door, and easily fits on the sidewalk (2 initial concerns of ours. Would definitely recommend.
