This is meant for kids who are 6 months and older, so don’t let the lightweight design fool you.
Features Huge Canopy
This double stroller features a huge double canopy meant to keep your babies safe from the sun and rain. That means you can adjust each child’s canopy independently of the other’s.

Cost and Value
This is in the middle of our price range and is backed by hundreds of positive customer reviews. Parents and caretakers found this stroller to be easy to maneuver and easily portable because of its light weight.

Plus, the back wheels feature tandem locking so you only have to lock one side to keep the stroller in place.
One-Click Fold Up
Even though this is like the Cadillac of strollers, it isn’t a big as the Cadillacs of old. It can easily fit through a standard sized door of 30 inches so it is easy to use in shopping centers and while traveling. Additionally, the stroller features a one-click collapse option that makes it super easy to break down and to pop up. We will mention that this stroller weights almost 40 pounds so it isn’t the most lightweight option on our list. That being said, it is super sturdy and durable so it’s a great option for everyday use.

Criteria Used for Evaluation
One of the most important considerations we made when compiling our Top 10 List of Double Strollers was the features each strolled came equipped with.
All of our strollers include canopies of varying functionality. Some of them are large while some of them are minimal. Additionally, some of the canopies provide tiered opening options and also have the ability to be removed completely.
Likewise, all of our strollers include secure fastening and belting mechanisms to make sure that your child is safely seated at all times. Some of the mechanisms are more advanced than others and we made sure to point out the functions of each.
We also made sure to point out the functionality of the wheel sets for each double stroller. Most of our products feature non-rotating back wheels with fully rotating front wheel components. This allows for stability and also ease when navigating turns. And of course, the back wheels of our products feature locking mechanisms so your little ones won’t go rolling when you’re parked.
Finally, we made sure to account for added features like storage and cup holders. While some of our strollers come fully equipped with all the storage capacity a family is likely to need, some require simple and inexpensive add-ons to fully roundout the product.
Size is such an important factor for familes with 2+ kids. Obviously, the more children you have, the more stuff you need to bring with you on your travels and through your every day life. Adding a bulky stroller to your list of things to carry along is not ideal as these products should eliminate stress and add to your daily movement needs.
That’s why we made sure to list product dimensions for each of our strollers. We loved double strollers that were still compact enough to fit through a standard sized door. This means easy use in shopping malls, in restaurants, and in airports and bus stations.
We also loved strollers that were super small and compact when deconstructed for easy storage and portability. That means we tried to include strollers that can easily be taken on airplanes as well as car trips.
In the same way that we considered size, we considered weight. When preparing for daily excursions or when readying your family for long-haul travels, every single ounce counts. That’s why we tried to include lightweight options that are supportive and durable while not weighing a ton on top of everything esle you have to carry. We loved strollers that can carry older children while still being constructed from lightweight and durable metals.
Ease of Use
Let’s face it--parenthood is hard enough without having to go to war with the products that are meant to make your life easier. That’s why we featured strollers that parents rated as being super easy to use.
Under this umbrella, we considered how easy it was to get a child in and out of the seat, how easy it was to break the stroller down, and how easy the stroller was to steer.
Strollers with easily adjusting and multi-harnessing straps got a higher rating in “Ease of Use” than strollers that only had parachute straps. After all, ease without security is a no-go.
Likewise, strollers with one-click collapsing options scored higher than strollers with multi-click collapsing options. Even though it’s a double stroller, it should be able to be easily operated by one adult.
And finally, we looked at how easy each stroller was to steer. While some of the strollers on our list are simply intended for travel and every day use, some are meant for running and exercising. These especially needed to be easy to maneuver and very responsive to the user.
As always, we consider the value add of each product that makes our list. As with most products in the baby industry, there are items ranging from the very inexpensive to the very, very expensive. We like to point out that more money doesn’t always get you more.
Because we are dealing with children’s products, we make sure above all that each company is reliable and that each product is safe for use. Once we have this criteria met, we then look at the quality of each product and consider it’s durability and its versatitliy compared to its price. Products made from reliable materials that are long-lasting but more inexpensive get a higher value ranking. Products that are brand-name based, expensive and long-lasting get a lower value ranking.
To ensure that we give you the best information possible, we poured over thousands of reviews from parents and caretakers, working to consolodate our data and making sure that we give you all the info you need to make the right choice.
Expert Interviews & Opinions
When purchasing a double stroller you’ll want to consider if your passengers (your children) are the same size and age or if they are different sizes and different ages. Side-by-side double strollers are most durable when each child weighs the same. Uneven weight distribution can cause the stroller to become lopsided and unusable over time. If your children are not the same size, looking at a back and front stroller is a better option, as well as those that provide platforms in the back for the older children to stand on.
When purchasing, it’s important to consider the main intended purpose of your stroller. Are you looking for a lightweight travel option? An every day stroller? A stroller for exercise? We made sure to include the parameters for what each stroller on our list was intended for and we also made sure to highlight those strollers that could fulfill multiple needs.
Other Factors to Consider
Some of you readers may be looking for lightweight options for travel or for an every day stroller. Maybe you’re even looking for a durable jogging stroller to lose that baby weight. Either way, not all strollers are created equal.
We worked to illustrate the exact designed purpose for each stroller so that you can purchase the stroller that fits your needs. We loved strollers that were not one dimensional. For example, if a runner stroller was also super light weight and great for travel, this stroller got a high ranking in versatitliy. Additionally, if the stroller could hold newborns and also toddlers, the stroller got a higher ranking.
Finally, we considered the ride of the stroller. This is a bit different than the “Ease of Use” consideration from before. We wanted to feature strollers that gave a smooth ride for both the passengers and the driver. While some bumps can be soothing and even sleep-provoking for babies, too many bumps can cause agitation and upset a peaceful ride. Likewise, such a bumpy ride can cause the drivers hands to go numb and sting.
That’s why we worked to illustrate what terrain each stroller was intended for and the kind of ride it provided for the kids and the adults.
Frequently Asked Questions
q: Do my children have to be the same age / weight to ride in a double stroller?
No. Some strollers are designed for children that are the same age and weight and will work best only when these parameters are met (side-by-side double strollers). However, there are front-to-back double strollers, and strollers with back standing platforms that are meant for families with children that are different ages and sizes.
q: Are double strollers are safe as single strollers?
Yes. Of course, the saftey of each stroller varies based on the company and on the materials made. But the strollers on our list feature safety assurances backed by testing so that you can feel confident about the product you’ve selected.
q: Do lighter strollers carry less weight?
This totally depends on the material that each stroller is made out of. There are metals on the market that are super lightwight and durable, but these are going to cost a little bit more as they can hold a little bit more. Heavier metals that are less durable are likewise going to be less expensive.
