Best Double Stroller – {Guaranteed to love our picks!}

 

We’re in 2016!  We’ve got all the info we need at our fingertips… Why then is it so freakin hard to figure out what double stroller to buy??  Good question!  I’m glad you asked!  The reason is the stroller market is FLOODED!   Every year there are another 5 or so that come to market.   But not all of them are great options and we’re here to help you so you dont choose a ‘lemon’!

There are really 2 main types of double strollers the side by side double and more recently popular the tandem double stroller.  So which one should you go with?  Heres the pros and the cons of a side by side vs tandem double stroller.

Side by side double vs Tandem Double

Although harder to get through smaller places, I actually find the push on the side by side and especially navigating turns to be easier.   The tandems are a bit more difficult in that regard.  That being said the side by sides are really hard to get through small spaces. So depending on where you live and what types of aisles you will be navigating through that may be something to keep in mind!

With so many options keep in mind, double strollers are generally BIG and heavy. They have to be; most of them are rated for 80-100 lbs (or more) of total baby/child meat. Generally, double strollers are pretty expensive, so it’s not a decision to make lightly.

Your kids ages:

The age difference between your children matters. The strollers we recommend for twins or triplets are very different from those for a newborn and a young toddler, which will be different from a recommendation for, say, a newborn and a 3 or 4-year-old.

Children who are close in age (less than 2 years) seem to do well in almost any double stroller, while children who are 2-4 years apart often do better in a side-by-side stroller or in a tandem with one “primary” seat and a smaller seat. Since many double strollers have an upper weight limit of 40 lbs, look for one with 50 lb seats so you’ll be able to use it for longer.

Another alternative to a double stroller is using a riding board  or putting your baby in a carrier while your older child rides in the main stroller. Most preschoolers are just fine walking alongside the stroller, but sometimes it’s nice to have them both contained and under control, like in a crowded market.

 

After testing, rating and testing some more models I’m thrilled to give you my top picks for the best double strollers out there!

5.   JOOVY Scooter X2 Double Stroller

Price: $249.99

Why We Love it?

Its got everything you need in one awesome value .    Get your gear and stay in budget!

The Joovy ScooterX2 double stroller has a new stylish graphite grey frame and bigger wheels. The larger 7-inch front wheels and 9.5-inch rear wheels make it easier to maneuver than before. Its lightweight and narrow design allows the stroller to fit through any door while providing ample room for your kids. The width of the stroller is 30 inches, so there’s no need to fold it to get inside a door. The wheels have sealed bearings so pushing two kids totaling 90 pounds is easier than you could imagine; and, the double front wheels make the stroller extremely stable. This is especially important if your kids climb in and out of the stroller by themselves. (We have included a removable bumper bar to eliminate this possibility too!) The basket is bigger than any stroller basket on the market, period. The canopy is bigger than any other stroller on the market, too. Each seat is fully adjustable, independent of the other, and each has its own in-seat mesh pocket and adjustable 5-point harness. You will love the one-hand recline system that locks into an infinite number of positions – all the way down to a near flat napping position. We have also included two cup holders for the parents and two zippered pockets for phones, wallets, snacks, etc. Folding takes just seconds with the one hand fold feature. The Scooter X2 gives you the features you demand, the fashion you expect and the quality Joovy is known for – all at a reasonable price.

Bugaboo Donkey Weekender Edition – Top reasons we’re loving it!

 

Introducing the ‘Weekender’ Donkey from Bugaboo!

The Bugaboo Donkey is known for carrying loads of children and shopping, but this versatile pushchair has got extremely exciting with this new special edition single Donkey, which comes with it’s own matching “Weekender” bag.

The Bugaboo Donkey Weekender has classic grey / blue fabrics with a slight sheen to it. There is a subtle light grey quilted lining inside the hood. The extending sun canopy, bumper bar, handlebar and bag are all finished smartly with tan leatherette detailing. The Weekender bag has the Bugaboo logo embroidered onto the side below a zippered pocket. The bag has a large zip opening for easy access.

The Weekender bag sits where the side basket usually fixes, using sockets inside the bag to secure it firmly and neatly into position, next to a single Donkey seat.
The Donkey is going to hold great appeal to travellers who need a single width pushchair, which can carry enough clothing etc. for a weekend away. With this new large weekend holdall, and the spacious under-storage basket, there is ample room for everything that you and your little one will need for a mini holiday.

There is a matching extension kit, however, even if you do only plan to buy this to use with just one child, consider buying the second set to put away for another child or for resale later. Once these are gone, there will be no chance to buy the matching seat at a later date if you have Baby No 2.

Wish they came out with a weekender cameleon stroller?  Dont you??

Nuna Aace Booster Car Seat – {Ratings/Review/Pricing}

 

Update!  The Nuna Aace is now available for ordering!  Woohoo!

Nunas newest lineup of car seats includes the

Nuna Aace Booster Car Seat.

All I can say is wow!   The Nuna Aace booster is by far the most amazing booster I’ve seen.  Its awesome!  And I’m really excited to share it with you!

The Nuna Aace Booster car seat features a 3D growth system.   Booster grows up, out and on 🙂

The one-hand, 9 position height adjustable headrest as your child grows in heigh.   The grow out shoulder system works simultaneously with the head rest expanding out while growing up.  The seat supports 3 different sizing making plenty of room for your growing child.

Take a look!   The Nuna Aace is the last car seat your child needs until he’s big enough to sit without any car seat.  (age 8 in many states).

The high back of the aace booster car seat fits a child up to 110 lbs.  Starting from children ages 4 and up.   Without the back, the booster is good for children from age 5 and up to 120lbs.

Comfort 

Thats a huge thing on the Nuna Aace car seat.   The seat reclines to 8 different positions in high back mode.   The ventilation panels create a comfy climate even for the longest of trips.  Built in arm rests add to the comfort of your child too.
Safety

The Nuna Aace offers complete side impact protection that many high back boosters lack.   So as far as safety goes this gets an A+.   Car seat anchor connectors easily secure the the car seat to the car.    Theres also a color belt path indicator to help decrease the risk of user error.
Style

Love the colors of the Nuna Aace Booster Car Seat.   They are really sharp!  The only hard part is figuring out which one to purchase!

Nuna Aace Booster Car Seat
The Nuna aace booster car seat is super sleek with micro knit fabric.   Easy to remove and machine washable.  Theres also a cup holder thats dishwasher safe. (woohoo!).

Color Options

The BABYZEN YOYO+ comes with a either a black or white chassis and the colour packs are Blue, Black, Red, Grey, Pink and Taupe.

 

As it’s so small, there’s no assembly required with the BabyZen YOYO 2017 Stroller +. It arrives folded in its own storage bag, ready to show off its magical unfold. The unique styling of the YOYO+ is one of the main things that sets it apart from its competitors.  Fits into the overhead bin of an airplane!!

Though the handlebar on the YOYO+ isn’t adjustable, it measures 106cm at its highest point, making it great for tall parents. Because of the curved shape it can be held lower if you find it comfortable – otherwise, it could still be a little high for people on the shorter side.

The white centred wheels have been updated with better rubber tyres with improved four wheel suspension and match either the black or white chassis perfectly. Though not designed for rough terrain, this gives a really smooth ride for you and the child in shops, on pavements and at the airport. There’s no need for a front wheel lock thanks to the exclusive soft-drive system, which adapts to the surface you’re travelling over, preventing the wheels from shaking.

BABYZEN YOYO+ Review – Wheels

The brake is a small red lever placed to the right hand side of the chassis. Push down, pull up, but it’s not the easiest to see with the newborn pack in place.

BABYZEN have increased the basket size on the YOYO+ by 60%! It’s a great improvement, and now deeper allowing you to fit your changing bag underneath or a couple of shopping bags.

BABYZEN YOYO+ Review – Shopping Basket

One of the best updates on the new YOYO+ is the ability to add your car seat to make a fully compatible travel system. The car seat adaptors can carry a range of infant carriers including Cybex, BeSafe and Maxi-Cosi Pebble and Pebble Plus and simply clip onto the sides of the frame, with a white button locking them into place. To remove again, just press the white button to release.

BABYZEN YOYO+ Review – Travel System
BABYZEN YOYO+ Review: Seat

The padded and colour coded seat liner is thick and offers real comfort for little ones, reaching past the end of the seat to keep their legs away from anything hard. For additional storage, the seat has a little mesh pocket on the back. We like that you can purchase the colour packs separately, offering a fresh look for your pushchair or to use with subsequent children.

At 43cm, the seat back of the YOYO+ isn’t among the biggest that we’ve seen, though there is plenty of clearance between the top of the seat and the hood if you have a tall toddler. There’s plenty of width too with a surprising 34cm at the hip area of the seat. The frame of the YOYO+ has been reinforced on this latest model. The seat can now carry 18kg – right up to your average four year old!

A 5-point harness with shoulder pads and three height positions is fitted to keep your tot secure. The waist straps buckle to the shoulder straps and can be adjusted to increase the length. The two parts of the harness slide into the buckle together, with the one touch red button releasing it again. It is really quick and easy to get your child in and out.

BABYZEN YOYO+ Review – Seat Unit

To recline the seat, there is a single strap. Loosen to lower, tighten to get it back up. This does take both hands to operate when moving the seat up if the child is reclined. Though the recline is not fully flat, it’s a nice position for an older baby or toddler to take their naps.

The hood of the YOYO+ features an additional pull out sun visor and a clear plastic area at the back so that you can keep tabs on your little one. Though not huge, it does offer plenty of shade to keep small faces protected from the sun. Because of the design, it’s either down or back, rather than offering different positions. There’s also a new zippered pocket on the back of the canopy which is large enough to keep the essentials secure and to hand.

The footrest is static, so can’t be moved for a sleeping child. Made from plastic and connected to the frame, you can wipe it clean easily and it’s ridged for better grip for little feet climbing in.

BABYZEN have done a great job with the raincover for the YOYO+. It is shaped near the bottom of the seat to provide good space for little legs and Velcros to the side of the chassis. It is also secured at the top with an elasticated rim and fits over the hood connectors to keep it in place. The length is also really good to provide coverage for an older toddler, all the way down to the footrest.

BABYZEN YOYO+ Review – Raincover
BABYZEN YOYO+ Review: Newborn pack

To keep a newborn cosy and parent facing, the newborn pack can be added to the YOYO+ chassis in place of the usual seat. Transforming the seat unit is a case of removing the seat fabrics and attaching the newborn pack with a series of straps and Velcro fasteners.

With the colour pack included, the newborn pack features a thick liner, removable fleece footmuff, head support and small hood. There’s also a 5-point harness to keep them secure.

BABYZEN YOYO+ Review – Newborn Pack

The hood is small, but will still make sure that the child’s face is protected. Though you can’t push the hood fully back, it can be pulled upright and kept in place with a popper at either side.

The size of the nest is 75 x 44cm, so in comparison to your standard carrycot, much bigger. Your newborn should be able to stay in there for the full six months, as recommended. For a small pushchair, we love that there is the option to have a lie flat, parent facing position to use from birth.
BABYZEN YOYO+ Review: Drivability

As a small pushchair, designed specifically for travelling and urban living, the YOYO+ is great on smooth surfaces. With the exclusive soft drive system, there’s no need to lock the front swivel wheels as it manages the terrain automatically. BABYZEN have also improved the suspension on this model for any bumps in the road and it’s lovely to push. The slight increase in weight on this model makes it that bit more substantial, while still being very light.

The YOYO+ is really slim at only 44 cm wide so it’ll fit down the tightest of shop aisles.
BABYZEN YOYO+ Review: Fold

Anyone that sees the BABYZEN YOYO+ fold will be impressed, it’s impossible not to be. It can be done one handed and seems almost like a magic trick as you throw it up in the air. But it is surprisingly easy once you work out how it’s done.

To start the fold, press the white buttons on the inside of the handlebar (these used to be red) and fold the handlebar down, under the pushchair. If you are using the 6m+ seat, there are handy white circles on the fabric so you know where to press. Next reach under the back of the pushchair and press the red button and pull out the red lever. Grab hold of the silver bar and pick the whole lot up to fold it down. There’s an automatic lock to keep it in place.

BABYZEN YOYO+ Review – Fold

Measuring only 52 x 44 x 18, the YOYO+ will really fit into the smallest of spaces. If you have a car boot full of shopping, then don’t worry about where to put your pushchair, as it will slide into your footwell. No room in your hallway, stick it in a cupboard. Coming with its own carry bag, it will be kept clean and it’s also really easy to transport with the carry handle. This has also been upgraded with a new strap covering to make it comfier to hold.

BABYZEN YOYO+ Review – Travel Bag

To get the YOYO+ upright again, pull out the handlebar and release the automatic lock at the front of the pushchair. Then just shake the pushchair out and stand it firmly on the ground until you hear the reassuring click.
BABYZEN YOYO+ Review: Conclusion

Since the launch of the original BABYZEN YOYO, there have been many brands to release compact and small folding pushchairs. But the BABYZEN YOYO+ still stands out in front with the ability to add the Newborn Pack or car seat to use it from birth. The quality is excellent, and it’s beautifully designed. The aluminium chassis and high performance plastics make it only 6.2kg and very manoeuvrable.

The record breaking fold of only 52 x 44 x 18 cm means that storage is never a problem, whether you live in one bedroom flat, or have a small car. It can easily stand in your hallway, fit in the smallest of boots or sit next to you on the train. As it is IATA approved, with the whole folded package coming smaller than the cabin baggage dimensions, you can even take it on board with you to store in the overhead compartment on a plane. This makes travelling with young children so much easier, as there’s no waiting in line for your pushchair to come off the conveyor belt!

There’s a lot of features loaded onto the YOYO+, whether you have a baby, toddler or child. The four wheel suspension and soft drive system makes all the difference to the push and ride. As the seat is spacious enough, you can still use it as your child grows, and with the newborn pack or car seat, from birth.

The BABYZEN YOYO+ is a pushchair that is perfect for city life and travelling, while still providing a comfy place for your child to rest, and it really is lovely to push.

7. Bugaboo Cameleon 3
Best Strollers 2017

Price:  $1059

Why we love it?  

The Bugaboo cameleon stroller is iconic.   It is a luxury all-terrain stroller thats in its own class.   First unveiled worldwide in 2005, the Bugaboo Cameleon has now clocked up a decade on the luxury stroller market, and is in its third edition.

The best part of the bugaboo is its ‘push’.  There is no other stroller like.   The smooth ride and the easy of manuvering make the bugaboo cameleon the dream rider.

8. Uppababy Vista 2018

 

Price: $839.99

Why We Love it?

The Uppababy Vista 2017 is an awesome choice for a grow with me stroller option.  The full size stroller includes a bassinet as well so its great for a newborn too.   Comes in many great color options including several quilted patterns.

The uppababy vista also has the option of adding a rumble seat to make it a double stroller as well.  That’s a huge plus over the bugaboo cameleon as only the vista has that option.  (The Rumble seat is sold separately and can be purchased at a later time).

The wheel width of the vista is a bit wider than the cameleon so if space is an issue that’s something to keep in mind.     The canopy on the vista is huge and offers great sun protection something that many other strollers lack.  The price is from $839.99 so its definitely not a cheap stroller but well worth the price tag.

9.  Baby Jogger City Select Lux 2018

 

baby jogger city select 2017

Price: $499.99

Why We love it?

16 Different Stroller Combinations!

Baby Jogger City Select is an award-winning luxury stroller that became very popular because of its ability to TRANSFORM from a single stroller into a double with an addition of a bassinet, car seat adapter or additional seat. With the second seat, it has 16 different combinations of the seating arrangement. How great is that! But the all new City Select Lux Stroller offers 2o combinations with the introduction of the JumpSeat.  It also has great features like large canopy, adjustable handle bar and huge storage basket. It is a sleek stroller that looks very modern and innovative.  The Lux model includes a decelerating parking brake as well.

There are not many INLINE double strollers that can transform from single into double mode. Most of the double stroller have both seats side-by-side making them very wide and hard to get around things. Try getting  down shopping aisles or between parked cars with a side-by-side stroller! You will need to go around the whole parking lot to get to your car.

Even as a single stroller alone, this stroller is top rated.   The large basket, easy recline and bassinet add on option (sold separately) make this a great priced full size stroller.

The single city select retails at $499.  Bassinet $89
