Double strollers are an excellent addition to any household with more than one child in infancy or toddler age. These models offer double the space and the ability to travel with both children while providing the same activity at the same time. Whether you're looking for a stroller for twins or siblings with little age difference, the double strollers with great canopies, large storage compartments, adjustable leg rests and backrests make a trip to the city or a walk in the park an absolute pleasure for you and your children.
On the market, there are models that can also be converted easily. As soon as your kids can sit safely, you can exchange the comfortable carrycots for sports seats and continue to use your double stroller as a twin buggy. This provides both children with seating options that are perfectly matched to their age.
In the segment of double strollers, there are two types: the so-called tandem strollers in which your children sit in a row, and models in which your kids sit in side-by-side seat units. Both types have advantages and disadvantages. Choosing the best model depends on the needs of your children as well as on your own needs.
The tandem models have one seat in front of the other, with the rear seat often located in a higher position than the front seat. Tandem strollers fit through all standard doors and are easier to manoeuvre in narrow spaces. Many of these models even have room for two baby car seats, which is a great help in the first few months of life. In addition to this, some tandem strollers allow you to install the seats in a forward- facing or rear-facing mode so that your children can either look at you or look at the surroundings. Also, some additional features, such as cup holders and/ or small storage compartments on top, shopping baskets underneath or even separate trays for each of the two seat units are offered. However, these accessories are not available on all models for both seats. Therefore, when purchasing a model, you should consider the additional features offered and what is important to you and your children. The disadvantage of tandem strollers is that they tend to be a bit heavier compared to the models in which the kids sit next to each other. Often, only the rear seat can be fully adjusted. Also, some children may not like to sit in the back as this will affect their vision and for you as the person who is pushing the stroller it is a little harder to keep an eye on the kid in the front seat.
In addition to the tandem models, parents can opt for a side-by-side version. These are among the most common models on the market. Both children sit in two equally sized seats in a forward-facing mode and are right next to each other, which has the advantage that both children have the same view and thus none of the little ones feels disadvantaged in terms of visibility. Of course, these models are wider than a tandem stroller and can therefore be more difficult to lift and store, especially if it is a 3-wheeled model. However, they are also a bit more stable and agile. Generally, they are just as long as a "regular" stroller. Another advantage is that both seats offer the possibility to be adjusted to a reclining position.
Similar to the "standard types", manufacturers of high-quality double strollers offer a huge variety that allows parents to choose a double stroller which is perfect for their needs and requirements.
How well a certain model works for you and your family depends on your needs and requirements.
Taking children on a ride in a double stroller can be a great experience or a real test of patience for mom and dad. One of the most important considerations when choosing a model is therefore the age of the children. Twins in infancy and early childhood are better off in a stroller with two side-by-side seats as this provides the necessary proximity to each other. However, keep in mind that not all double strollers are suitable for installing two baby car seats or for holding two kids of the same age. So, if you're looking for a stroller for your twins, you might consider a model that can hold two baby car seats so the kids can easily switch from car to stroller without being woken up.
Siblings of different ages could enjoy rides more in a tandem model. However, there are also siblings who, regardless of their age difference, are so close that they would rather sit next to each other, share jokes and laugh together.
Other issues that could affect the selection of a suitable stroller for your little ones would be the duration and frequency of using a sibling stroller. If you just want to take a short walk around the block or need the stroller at the airport, a basic model is probably the best choice. Just getting from one place to another quickly requires far fewer functions for the comfort of small passengers or parents than if you plan to use your stroller for longer rides or full-day trips. The same applies of course to the frequency of use of a double stroller. If you plan to use the stroller on a daily or at least regular basis, you should look for a model that has as many useful features as possible.
