Discover the Mia Moda Facile twin stroller with bright colors and comfort features for you and your two children.
Mia Moda Facile Twin is a great double twin stroller when you need something simple yet reliable for your two children. It is lightweight, yet sturdy enough to carry your two precious little passengers safely. Suitable for babies from as young as six months to 40 pounds each, this Mia Moda double umbrella stroller is perfect for daily short trips, city walking and travel.
Sounds really well-made doesn't it? Does that mean it's going to cost a bundle? No. You'll be thrilled to know that compared to the Maclaren Twin Triumph, the Mia Moda Facile Twin costs only half as much! The Facile Twin has almost all the same features such as a reclining seat, storage features and tall handles. However, this stroller weighs a bit more and doesn't hold quite as much weight as the Maclaren. But for half the price, that's a good value!
What else can this bright and cheery side-by-side double umbrella stroller offer your children and you? By the time you finish this review, you'll see for yourself if the Mia Moda Facile Twin stroller is a match for your needs. Let's begin by going over the surprising number of features in this nifty little number!
Mia Moda Facile Twin Features:
Lightweight & sturdy
The Mia Moda Facile Twin stroller is a lightweight side-by-side stroller. Weighing only 27 pounds, the Facile Twin stroller is easy to lift up into your car trunk. Despite being lightweight, the stroller carries up to 80 pounds. It is not only suitable for moms with twins, but also for families with two young children of different ages. A mom with twin girls and an older toddler mentioned in her review that her older son loves the Facile Twin as much as her twin girls do.
Many parents love that the Facile Twin can go through standard store doorways and they mention in their reviews how impressed they are with this feature. This is the perfect solution for moms like you who need to run daily errands like getting groceries, shopping at the mall or taking care of doctor appointments.
The stroller is also sturdy and stable and mommies mentioned in their reviews that the Facile Twin feels stronger than other lightweight strollers. One mother told in her review that she had a bag with a laptop computer that she thought was too heavy. She tried hanging the bag over one handle on the Mia Moda Facile Twin, and she was pleasantly surprised that the stroller did not tip backwards. And it still pushed easily!
How's the handling?
The Mia Moda Facile Twin stroller has swivel front wheels that can be locked to allow smooth and straight long distance walks. When unlocked, the front wheels swivel for easy steering through busy crowds and on uneven surfaces. Parents enjoy going for strolls with their kids on the Facile Twin, since it turns on a dime.
Front wheel suspension keeps the ride smooth for your little ones and while this stroller is made for smooth surfaces, you can still take the Facile Twin over slightly rougher terrain like park grass or mulch without a headache.
Parents love the umbrella fold and how neatly and compactly it can be stowed. The stroller also comes with straps that hold it closed for storage and transport. Traveling with twins or more kids won't be a hassle anymore, and now parents can enjoy going on vacations or holidays with their kids more often. Quite a few reviews mention how easily the stroller stores in car trunks, both small and mid-size.
Safety & comfort
I really like the four-position seat recline because most light weight umbrella strollers don't even have this feature. Each seat can be reclined to just the right spot, allowing your babies to sit or nap comfortably. The seats have ample padding to give maximum comfort for your kiddos.
Like most good strollers, the Mia Moda Facile Twin has five-point safety harnesses that keep your children strapped securely in their seats. We all know that little kids tend to wiggle around, and these harnesses give parents peace of mind knowing that their little ones are tucked snugly in their seats.
In my opinion, adjustable leg rests on a stroller is a real plus. When babies are small, they need to lay as flat as they can for naptime and when the leg rests are extended, it gives much needed support. Since smaller babies have short legs, the extended leg rests prop them up comfortably even when sitting up. The leg rests on the Mia Moda Facile Twin are highly beneficial and I think it's a fantastic feature.
Tell me about the sun canopies
The Facile Twin has two detachable sun canopies that protect your children from the elements, especially from harsh sun. What I love about the sun shade is that they are adjustable, allowing you to raise or lower them according to the sun's position. Too often the canopies on umbrella strollers are too skimpy, but not on this stroller. A few satisfied user found that the canopies are very good on the Mia Moda Facile Twin.
