Things To Consider When Chosing A Stroller For Two

Whether you are expecting twins, have just had twins or simply have more than one child you will no doubt be in the market for a double stroller at some point (if not right now).

As with most purchases today it is best to buy your tandem stroller online, as you will get the best price for it. This will mean trawling through a number of blogs and reviews before you can make this important decision. What we have tried to do below is lay out the most important factors that you will need to take into consideration when you are buying a double stroller online.

Safety

First and most important is of course safety. This may seem a little obvious to you and you may be thinking well surely ALL double strollers being sold in the US are safe? Well, you are of course correct, there are plenty of laws and regulations put in place to ensure that ALL double and tandem strollers sold in the US meet a certain standard of safety. However, this does not mean that some strollers are not safer than others and this does not just mean you need to go for the most expensive one, you do not always get the safest double stroller with the most amount of $$… But sometimes you do 😉

One of the key safety items on any double stroller are the brakes. Here at Best Double Stroller Reviews, we prefer ones that are hand operated rather than foot operated

The harnessing is also extremely important, we prefer seating that has a 5 point harness. The City Select Double Stroller probably has the best 5 point harness we’ve tested to date.  Most of them can be a little more difficult to secure your children into, but we feel they are much safer and most importantly more difficult for your children to wriggle out of (if yours are anything like mine they will find a way to wriggle out of most safety harnesses, no matter how tight!).

Finally, the padding and the canopies need to be taken into account. Obviously, you want your child to have a comfortable ride so the padding on the seating should be good quality.

It is always best to buy a double stroller that has SPF protection in the canopies if you can. If not then we recommend that you buy a separate canopy attachment that gives some SPF protection to your little ones, the sun’s rays are especially dangerous to a babies’ skin.

Maneuverability

With any stroller this is important, but when you’re dealing with twin strollers for two or more, the extra size of the stroller make this criteria even more important.

A double stroller is always going to be considerably larger than a single stroller and thus can be tough to maneuver.

We have found that the critical part of this decision making process is the number of wheels the double stroller that you are going to buy has

In general we find that less is more when it comes to wheel numbers, especially for the front wheels. Most of the double strollers that we have tried out that have 4 wheels at the front for example tend to struggle around tight corners but the ones with less wheels tend to handle corners better. Double jogging strollers usually have just a single wheel at the front and are therefore much better at going around corners and have better handling in general.

If you can, we would advise that you visit a local high street store and try out a couple of different options before making your double stroller purchase online.

Seating Options

Joovy CabooseThis part of the buying process is super important when you are trying to choose the best double stroller for you and your family. The key consideration here is the age of your children.

It is a common misconception that ALL tandem strollers can accommodate twins or two infants, this is not true. Many double strollers are simply called this because they can carry two children, but NOT two infants. So, if you have twins and you are looking to buy a stroller to carry them it will most probably not be the same double stroller that you would buy if you have an infant and a toddler for example.

Once you have ascertained the seating requirements you need (two car seats for example) you will then need to decide how you wish the seats to be laid out. They will either be in front and behind, side by side or possibly a sit and stand stroller.

If you are looking for a double stroller with two car seats then most probably the seating will be in front and behind, with stadium style seating. The stadium style seating allows the child seated at the rear (as they get a little older) to be able to see just as well as the child in the front seat. This is a great option and helps to keep both children happy.

The in front/behind or inline seating options are obviously longer than the side by side seating options and tend to be a little more difficult to maneuver.

The side by side double strollers are easier to maneuver but these are more difficult to get around corners and through doorways than the in front and behind options. So you will need to decide which option is best for your situation.

What is the best double stroller for regular use?

The simple answer to this question is that the more options/functions your double stroller has the better. If you opt for a basic double stroller and plan to use it every day or even multiple times per day you will be left disappointed and could even have to buy another double stroller meaning that you have outlaid the cash twice for the same product.

It is much better to pay a little more and get a really high quality tandem stroller that has everything you could ever need for your day trips

Make sure that you get one that is compatible with your infant car seats and has excellent storage space. We think cup holders and storage on the handles for you, multiple seating options so the stroller can adapt as your children grow are also important.

Finally, but most importantly one that is safe and secure no matter what age group your children are in when they are using the double stroller.

Budget

Price is often the most difficult part of any buying decision and buying the best double stroller for infant and toddler is certainly no different.

There are so many different factors to take into consideration, but take it from me, this is not something that you want to scrimp on.

As alluded to earlier, buying a double stroller requires a lot of thought and anticipation of the future. A stroller that serves your needs now, might not work for you when the kids are older. Sometimes, it might be better to shell out more in order to get a stroller that can adapt along with your kids. Whilst it might be nice to get away with paying less initially…having to buy again 6 months or a year later would be a disaster.

So, set your budget, but always leave a little bit over so you can ensure that you get the exact double stroller to meet your family’s needs for now and the future.

If you are buying a double stroller for twins, it is best to opt for a tandem stroller that can not only carry infants, but will also adapt once you’re little ones grow out of their infant car seats and can sit in the standard stroller seating until they are large toddlers.

Pay close attention to the maximum weight restrictions and try to get one that has the highest weight restriction on the standard seating as this will provide you with the best value for money as the lifespan of these double strollers is obviously longer

If a stroller costs $50-100 more but you get an extra 6-12 months from it, it is of course well worth this additional investment.

Brands

As you read through our site and the comprehensive reviews, you will see that we have put them together in the simplest way possible. This is to help you make the decision as to which double stroller for infant and toddler is the best for you and your family.

You will see there are a huge number of different brands available. Each brand tends to do certain things well such as safety and maneuverability, whilst others are better at comfort and style. There are very few brands that do absolutely everything perfectly unfortunately, but don’t worry we will help to guide you in finding the ideal brand for you and your family.

The leading brands and thus the ones that we have focused on for the majority of our reviews are Britax, BabyTrend, BOB, Joovy, Chicco, Graco, Contours, Maclaren and InStep

As you will probably already be aware, the prices of the various brands do vary quite drastically and some brands even vary a lot from one model to the next. As each family obviously has different budgets for their tandem stroller, we always endeavor to provide a good variety of double stroller reviews. From the best value or budget strollers all the way up to the premium or high end double strollers.

In our humble opinion Britax, BOB, Chicco and Graco provide some of the best double strollers that are available on the market today

The quality of materials they use and the safety standards they apply are simply a cut above the rest. BOB GEAR being our personal favourite.

Quality and safety are of course the key factors to consider when buying a stroller for infant and toddler use. Unfortunately, this does tend to come at a cost, as with anything in life, and these are at the higher priced end of the marketplace.

If you are on a tighter budget and don’t have hundreds of dollar to spend on your double stroller then you will want to have a look through the BabyTrend double strollers

BabyTrend is one of the newest players in the baby products arena and they pride themselves on crafting good quality juvenile products at prices that are affordable for everyone. Although BabyTrend’s products may not be quite up to the same standard of Britax or BOB they are perfectly safe and have of course passed all the relevant safety checks and regulations that are required to sell any kind of baby or child products in the United States. If you are seeking an infant and toddler stroller and you are on a tight budget BabyTrend could well be the brand for you.
