What kind of strollers does everyone have? Do you love or hate it? We still need to buy one, but aren't in a hurry seeing as we're not going for walks in the snow! The babies will be about 5-6 months old before we'll be able to go for walks.
we have a babytrend expidition, a jeep side-by-side umbrella, and graco duo glider that we are selling, and a snap-n-go. We just bought a contours today! I will let you know if we like that later.
expidition: like it because it makes walks a lot smoother. Don't like it because front wheel does not swivel. If you go for walks and buy a jogging stroller get one that has a swivel front wheel.
Jeep: light, convenient, folds us small. use it for zoo, museum, anywhere that is not bumpy.
duo glider (not duo quatro): would prefer that it had 5 point harness in the front. Abby and Lilly try to hang out of it. they prob aren't going anywhere but it scare me a little. does not have second cup holder. pros: it was free and it fits in my trunk lol
snap-n-go: pointless for you since they will be 5/6 months but will review anyway in case other people are interest. This is my fav. I love it. Don't know what we have done with it. It folds up nice and small so we could fit groceries and the stroller in our trunk. don't have anything bad to say except now the girls are too big to use it.
I have a double jogging stroller that I pretty much only use for night walks in the summer or runnng.
I have a Kolcraft Contours Tandem taht I love. I wouldn't trade that thing for any other stroller in its price range. I use this for longer outtings like the zoo.
I also have a jeep side by side. This is great for short runs in and out of places. I use it all the time for the gym, library and things like that.
Thank you peimum for my siggie

We have a Chicco Cortina Together stroller (Chicco USA - Cortina Together Stroller - Cubes). We like it. It folds up smaller than most double strollers we tested and it is pretty light (34 lbs). It maneuvers pretty well too. The only negative thing I can say about it is that it is huge. But I suppose that is because all double strollers look huge to me because I've been used to a single stroller for 3 years. Right now it works great because we can stick both car seats in or Olivia can ride in one seat while one of us carries a baby. When the girls get older I'll be looking for a nice side-by-side that we can use for quick trips.
I've got three in order of preference:
1-BOB Duallie Revolution in Mesa Orange--LOVE it!
2-Jeep umbrella side by side-good for uptown, bad for storage/parcels
3-Joovy Big Caboose-good for infant seats, doesn't recline much with no headsupport once they're older, harder to manipulate and to jump curbs etc--got me through the infant months, but has sat in the garage pretty much since
I until recently had a problem with strollers, or at least DH thought so
I have had
~Peg Perego Twin Aria
~Kolcraft Contours Tandem
~Kidzaroo jogger/bike trailer
~Jeep Umbrella Double
~Bob Revolution Duallie
I also bought, with the exception of the Contours, all of the strollers used. My favorite is by far the Duallie! The jeep is a must have but you already have that. I really liked the aria for the mall and zoo trips, the Contours was great for walks but horrible for trails, hills, my DH hated it because of the length. My boys prefer sitting sbs so we get a lot of use out of the duallie. Its hard to find one stroller that fits all your needs, at least thats my excuse!
