Strollers are akin to a car for babies, so buying a stroller can have that similar feeling of car shopping. We all want good cars for ourselves, right? Well, our babies want one too. Putting into consideration factors like the weight, durability, pricing, ease-of-use and maneuverability, I have put together a list of top five best reviewed double strollers so you can get it right on the first purchase.
Zoe Umbrella Extra Lightweight Double Stroller: The “extra lightweight” in the name already makes it a user’s favorite. It weighs only 16 lbs which means it’s good for travel and maneuverable. It has an aluminum frame which gives it long-standing stability. It comes with very easy-to-use quick fold and extendable canopies with large extensions for shading your baby. The Zoe XL comes with a large storage basket and pocket to contain your items. Most common complaints by users are when folded that it feels unstable and the wheels could be stronger.
Delta Children LX Side by Side Tandem Umbrella Stroller: This one has garnered very positive reviews over the years. The frame is lightweight and can fit a standard 30” doorway. It has a compact umbrella fold for easy storage, and 360-degree shock absorbing wheels. The big European-style canopy adds to its beauty. The multi-position reclining feature will give your baby greater comfort. Things to improve on, however, are that the umbrella should be bigger and the handles should be made to accommodate taller people.
Baby Trend Universal Double Snap-N-Go Stroller Frame: This relatively new stroller comes with two infant car seats; the frame is large enough and acts as a cradle for a better fit of the car seats. The manufacturers designed this great stroller in such a way that you can place two baby car seats onto the carriage frame, without removing your kids. A big drop-down basket for storage and a convenient one-hand fold are some of its perks. The rear wheels have brakes to ensure stability. Make sure your car seats are compatible with this stroller to avoid disappointments. Also, the wheels should be made stronger in newer models.
Joovy Scooter X2 Double Stroller: It is a very aesthetic stroller that is easily maneuverable due to large front and rear wheels measuring 7 and 9.5 inches respectively. It is suitable for heavier babies and has sealed bearings on the wheels. The seats are adjustable and independent of each other. The size can fit through any door. For convenience, both the recline feature and fold are one-handed. The canopy and the storage basket are touted to be one of the largest available in the market. Its cons are its poor stability and it trips easily when bumped into obstacles.
Baby Trend Sit ‘N’ Stand Double: This is perfect for your young family. It is designed in such a way that one child can ride in front while the other behind can stand, sleep or sit (if he/she is 40 lbs or below), hence the name. It has two canopies for excellent sun protection. It has a covered parent organizer with cup holders and an under-seat storage basket. On the downside, it is hefty to handle.
The list above are the top five double strollers available today, composed after a thorough review.
