Quoting Davinia:

I started off with a mama & papas twin pulse ( side by side) good size not to big and light weight, but have got a 2nd a phil & ted sport ideal for one or two, the second seat is lower and can be removed not to all mums liking but my boys love it, the phil & ted sort is only for one new born not for two reason i brought the pulse, phil & ted have other twin buggys it all depends if you want one infront of the other or side by side or the phil & ted style



sorry forgot to say hope this helps,

I have 20 month old twin boys and we are very pleased with Peg Perego Duette. More about it:

I have one year old twin girls. I have a graco duo glider and a side by side babytrend jogging stroller. I love them both! The glider can still use the carseats as a travel system, but of course my girls have outgrown that. They love to ride in it. The babytrend one is too wide to go anywhere with and does not fold well. We live where there are gravel roads, so this works when we go for walks.

hey i have the mountain buggy urban double, its a great pushchair. my two b/g have been in it since birth and are now 18 months old and i havent had to change it. i did ALOT of research when buying the buggy so that i didnt have to buy more than one and this one is great. may seem a bit pricey but definitely worth it seeing as i havent had to buy another x

I have Bumbleride Indie Twin. Love it! Although it's about 35lbs. If that is not an issue for you, this would be a great stroller to consider. Test drive all strollers in the store before you make the purchase.

I have the Graco Duo Glide and a side by side InStep double jogger. The side by side fits in most standard store doorways. The swivel wheel is great but I use it sparingly b/c it tends to wobble after long periods of use. The duoglide we used while babies were in their carseats. They sometimes pick on eachother in the side by side so the duo glid comes in handy then. We haven't had the kicking issue yet. The twins are 12 mos.



The Kolkraft tandem stroller looks awesome!

I have the Joovy Big Caboose and I love it! My girls ride in the seats and there is a spot on the back for my 3 1/2 year old son to sit or stand when we go for walks.

The Graco Duo Glider worked great for me when my twin boys were younger, but we have run into some issues. The twin that sits in the back kicks the seat in front of him causing lots of frustration. The one in the back also gets very frustrated because he can't see in front of him. I also have the Jeep Wrangler side by side...I like it, but I have friends with the McClaren...and it looks a bit better. It has the baskets in the back..strollers have been an issue for me too. :D

I have the Kolcraft red one, it has seats that can face any way you want, drives great, fairly inexpensive for a double stroller

I have been using  the Graco Duo Glide for nearly a year now and I seem to like it. The only draw back to it is that the front seat doesn't fully recline (I don't know why they would do that). I would say for the price it's probably one of the best out there. I know I have heard a few other people with twins say they like the Peg Perego but the $500+ price range wasn't really in our budget. I've also heard a few people complain abot the side by sides becase the don't fit through all door ways.

where would you find the joovy groove 2? i saw them online but there were no prices or places to get them... I am thinkin of switching because my duo glider is soooo hard to fold and stuff it seems.. its kind of a pain in the butt.

We just started using the Joovy Groove 2, and so far I like it.  It's fairly lightweight and fits through doors.

I just bought the Jeep Wrangler Double Umbrella stroller. It was only $90 and it's GREAT for short trips shopping or something. I really like it.

I have the Duo Glider by Graco...the smallest one they make. I love it but at times it's too big for certain functions. I would recommend the Jeep double side by side stroller. It's small and very light weight!

I have a duo glider but havent really used it yet cuz my girls are still in their carseats... right now im using whats called a double decker stroller.. all it is, is a stroller frame and i put the carseats in it and go. it depends on what your going to be using the stroller for too.. i also have a double jogging stroller (cant really use that in the stores). Look on babys r us or burlington coat factory. com and take a look at all their strollers. might get a good idea what you like or want.

I use the Graco duo quattro stroller.  It's a bit more heavy duty than the graco duo glide.  It's pretty heavy to lift but it is a very nice stroller and manuevers well for it's size.  It's big enough that it should last the kids until they no longer need a stroller.  I think it holds up to 40-45 pounds per seat.  I'm still going to get smaller umbrella strollers for this summer though because it's nicer to have a less bulky option as well.

I have the Graco Duo Glider.   It's pretty light considering it's a double stroller, and it manuvers pretty well too.  My twins ( boy and girl) are almost eight and a half months old now and are just starting to get into the stroller without their infant carriers.  They love it.  It fits well in almost any situation too.

I have the MacLaren Twin Techno. I like it because it is fairly light, but sturdy even on our gravel walkways in the park. It is also slim enough to fit into all doorways and aisles in grocery stores, but comfy for my now 1 year old twins.
