Joovy Caboose Ultralight Stroller


Why Shelly recommends it:


When your preschooler insists she doesn't need a stroller anymore, there's little you can do. She may be right when it comes to those walks around the neighborhood and trips in and out of the mall, but after the first two hours at the zoo, or Sea World--or when you've got to make time to catch your connecting flight, you may both be glad to have the new Ultralight Caboose. Unlike many tandems (front and back passenger seats), you won't feel like you're to steer and push a whole train from the rear--really just the caboose. It's shorter length and ball-bearing lined wheels make it much easier to maneuver than many out there. Your front passenger may snooze at leisure with the comforts of a leg rest, two-poisition reclining seat, and oversized canopy. Note: There's not really  enough room for the rear passenger to sit when the front seat is reclined, but he may still be able to ride standing. The rear seat has a 3-point harness and is recommended for children 2 1/2 years old up to 44" tall or around 45 lbs. The front seat is suitable from 6 months or from birth if used with one of the many infant car seats its compatible with, including...Graco Snugride and Safe Seat (Step 1), Peg Perego Primo Viaggio, Compass I-410 and I-420, Britax Companion, Chicco Key Fit, and many others. Folds to 10.5" x 21.5" x 41.5"L. Weighs 21 lbs.

The Maclaren Twin Triumph travel stroller



Maclaren Twin Triumph Stroller


Why Shelly recommends it:


It goes the distance, both for travel and for duration of use.

Plus, this streamlined model it fits through a standard 30" doorway. Easy umbrella fold to 44" x 14.5" x 13".  Weighs 23 lbs.

The Joovy TooFold double stroller

Joovy's TooFold Stroller with Standing Platform and Optional Doubles Seat


Why Shelly recommends it:


This stroller gives great options for parents with children of two different ages in particular. Like the classic Phil&Teds double, you can add a second seat (sold separately) on the back when desired, but the Joovy TooFold already comes with a built in extendable "platform" on the back that is also designed to support a standing child (or your groceries, picnic, etc.), and 12-inch pneumatic wheels help support the load even over cobblestones. The handlebar adjusts at different angles to work with either configuration. As far as single travel strollers go, the TooFold is not exactly lightweight at 23.6 lbs, however, when you consider it as a double stroller option using just the extendable platform, it weighs in just between the Maclaren Twin Triumph and still less than the Maclaren Twin Techno. If you add the second seat, with a 5-point harness and built-in sunshade that stores in its own pocket, the stroller weighs just over the Twin Techno. And for having 12-inch rubber rear wheels, it folds admirably well down to 41.25" x 19" x 17.5".  Weighs 23.6 lbs.

UPPAbaby G-Link Twin Stroller


Why Shelly recommends it:


A lightweight twin without compromise that can be used for both children from birth on up to 50 lbs.--with plenty of comfort for both. The seats recline independently and the youngest infants benefit from supportive head cushions and a snap-on mesh boot to help create a cozy space. For bigger babies and young toddlers, leg adjustable leg rests extend for support.

Independent sun canopies also extend down beyond the view here for extra UPF 50 sun protection. For parents, ergonomic foam grip handles and four sets of wheels instead the usual six on twin strollers make for easy steering and maneuverability, while the generously sized 5.75" wheels make a smoother ride for all. Open, the G-Link stroller measures 30”W x 29”L x 42”H

It folds to 18”W x 18”L x 41”H (free-standing when folded).  Weighs 24.5 lbs.

Maclaren Twin Techno Double


Why Shelly recommends it:


Great for snoozing infants on the go--and impromptu diaper changes. Maclaren's Twin Techno may be used from birth as it offers fully reclining seats with dual infant boots and head huggers included. Storage pockets are built in to the backs of each canopy, plus UV-protective windows and sun visors. Folds easily and automatically latches to stay closed with a carrying handle for convenience. 6" wheels are larger than most travel strollers and help ensure a smooth ride, adjustable handle height is also a nice plus. Rain cover and detachable bottle holders also come standard with this model. 30" wide when open. Folds to approximately 19.5" x 21" x 45". Weighs 26.9 lbs.
