The Best Side-by-Side Twin Strollers
Combi Twin Sport
- The Combi Twin Sport is ranked by Consumersearch.com as the best side-by-side model on the market. It provides reclining seats for newborns, good wheel suspension and a removable child bar with cup holders. For the price, which is about $225 in 2011, it is not a luxury model but includes a few extras, including seat cushions that can be removed and washed. It performs best on smooth surfaces. A potential problem is that, although the stroller will hold one car seat, owners are limited to the Combi Shuttle 33, which costs an additional $99.
Jeep Wrangler Twin Sport All-Weather
- The Twin Sport All-Weather is one of the most economical double strollers on the market, and receives generally good reviews from Consumersearch.com. For about $90 in 2011, parents have a lightweight, fairly durable model that is safe and easy to use. One drawback is that the Jeep stroller is recommended for a maximum of 70 pounds, whereas similar strollers will hold 90 or 100. The seats do recline for newborns, but there is no attachment for a car seat, nor do the cushions come out for cleaning. Children are held in the stroller with a three-point harness instead of the standard five-point, and some consumers mention the difficulty of maneuvering in rough terrain.
Bob Revolution Duallie Jogger Stroller
- The Bob Revolution is a heavy-duty double stroller. It is tested to hold up to 100 pounds, and its design focuses on strength and maneuverability. It comes equipped with an adjustable suspension for rough terrain, is lightweight and easy to fold when putting away. Parents who are looking to purchase the Bob should remember that the infant car seat adapter and snack tray are additional options on top of the price tag of $629. The stroller is approved for infants as young as 8 weeks for standard use, but babies who can't hold their heads up require additional support. For off-road adventures, Bob strollers are approved for babies 8 months and older.
Peg Pergeo Aria Twin
- The Aria Twin is a lightweight model that provides a distinctive, book-like fold for storage. It comes complete with a removable snack tray with cup holder, five-point harness and independently adjustable shades. The seats have a 60/40 configuration, with the larger seat able to fit the Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 car seat. Both backrests recline to accommodate young infants, upholstery can be removed for hand washing and the design allows excellent maneuverability. On average, the Aria Twin runs about $265 in 2011.
