I Want to Buy a Double Stroller - Now What?

Aug 19, 2008
Congratulations, you have made your choice and wish to purchase a double stroller. Before you plunk down your Master Card there are a few factors to consider.

Impulse Buy

It is a very bad idea to purchase the first double stroller you come across, be it in a baby store or on an on-line baby supply website. Remember double strollers are an investment that will probably be used for years to come. And, if you purchase the right double stroller it will last for years to come. This is an expensive purchase. The cheapest double stroller will run you around $100.00 so making the wrong decision can cost you a lot of aggravation, time and money.

Do Your Research

With all the information that is available on the Internet there is no reason why you cannot research the double stroller that is best for you. There are hundreds of websites offering this product and many have review sections where owners can offer an honest opinion of the product.

There are also websites dedicated to the comparison of strollers. Here you will find parents that are willing to offer insight into your choice of double strollers. Also look for Epionion websites that focus on the double stroller.

Finally visit the mall, parks, and playgrounds where parents tend to congregate with their children. Ask parents who have double strollers their opinions of the brand they purchased. Be sure to ask what they like and do not like about their particular brand. Ask if they would buy the same double stroller again or seek out a different one.

Make a List

Before you even think of looking for a particular brand of double stroller make a list. Include in the list what you plan on using the stroller for. Will it be used for quick trips only to the doctor's office or grocery store? Or are you planning to spend hours at the mall or using public transportation.

Another part of your list should include what surfaces you will be pushing your stroller on. Is your stroller going to be used on carpet, sidewalks, dirt or grass. For example, if you have an older child who is on the baseball team you will probably be pushing the stroller through dirt parking lots and grass covered fields.

Also include in this list features that are important to you. How much storage do you want? How heavy can the double stroller be? Is it going to be folded and put in the car a lot? How much money can you spend?

And your final list should include the features you want for your child. Do you want the seats to fully recline back? How much legroom do you think you will need as your child grows? Will your children benefit by sitting beside each other?

Ignore These Particulars

Do not be influenced by pretty colors or attractive fabrics. Who cares what it looks like as long as the stroller is comfortable and has all the important features in your list.

Don't be tempted by clearance sales. Unless the double stroller on sale has all the features you are looking for do not purchase it because it is cheap.

Do not let a salesperson steer you towards a brand simply because it is expensive or overstocked. Listen to why they are trying to get you to purchase a particular double stroller. If they are not making sense, do not purchase it.
