Top Strollers for Twins Guide 2017

Top-Rated Brands for Two Newborn Babies

Explore different strollers for twins when they're infants, such as convertible or tandem, or simple car seat frame. These are the best for 2017.

All new parents need lots of help the first year, but parents of twins are especially in need. How in the world are you ever going to get out of the house, much less do any grocery shopping? It's overwhelming to think about safely taking your new babies on outings, but in the right stroller for twins, you can have peace of mind. Not to mention an easier time of it yourself!

This page focuses on the kind of stroller you're going to need in your babies' first 9 months to one year. Many double baby strollers, whether they're all-terrain, jogging, or umbrella, require that your children be at least 6 months old to ride. Most side-by-side strollers accommodate only one infant car seat, so you have to bypass those brands. What options do you have?

Explore a variety of top-rated strollers for twins that accommodate two infant car seats and some that have multiple seating arrangements. Price points go from ultra budget to high-end luxury for your precious bundles of joy. After you finish this overview, you'll either have a good idea of your needs or your stroller order already placed!

Luxury High End Strollers for Twins

This range usually starts at about $600 and goes up from there. It is common to spend over $1,000 for a top-of-the-line product. Here is a good representation of brands that span this range. 

UPPAbaby Vista

$989-$1,059 depending on frame color

One of the more popular and well-made luxury convertible strollers, the UPPABaby Vista is one of the brands that includes a feature-rich bassinet with purchase. An award-winning favorite of parents since 2006, the Vista is known for high quality materials, smooth steering, modern beautiful style and convenience. And now the Vista has been redesigned since 2015, and all these improvements are detailed in my review.

Favorite features include a comfortable, full-sized seat that is easy to reverse and recline. A huge storage basket stores everything you need and a telescoping height-adjustable handle provides strolling comfort for both mom and dad. Large rubber tires never go flat and takes you smoothly over bumpy park terrain. Weighing only 27½ pounds with the main seat attached, it is about standard for full-sized single luxury strollers.

Turn this stroller into a double when you buy the rumble seat separately or buy your Vista as a double. Compatible with all major brand car seats, correct adapters are sold separately, or click the UPPAbaby MESA right onto the frame. The Vista now holds two car seats or two bassinets and is a fantastic option for parents with twins

For years parents like you have ADORED this stroller and regularly give the Vista 4½ and 5 stars! Discover all the amazing aspects of this stylish convertible stroller in my exclusive UPPAbaby Vista review including a breakdown of what Consumer Reports says.

Here's a video showing you what the upgraded and redesigned Vista is like:





Phil&Teds Voyager

$850

Phil & Teds has made innovation their par for the course, and they did it again with the new Voyager. This convertible stroller has a 4-in-1 adaptable seat, both in front and for the second seat that you can buy as a doubles kit. The seat either sits up in "regular mode" or lies bassinet flat for your newborn. It also parent-faces, and can also be removed in bassinet mode as a free-standing unit. Both seats can be used as bassinets at the same time, making this and ideal stroller for twins. 

Other features in the Voyager include a folding system that enables you to fold it with both seats attached, facing in either direction, or in bassinet mode. For you new parents on the scene, this was literally impossible not that long ago! 

12" New Zealand designed aeromaxx tires provides a smooth ride with puncture-proof peace of mind. The sun canopies have zip-away panels for maximum coverage. 

This is a brand new stroller on the market for 2016, and not many reviews are out yet. But parents will love the 24" seatback, allowing lots of growth room, it's the tallest seat back on the market right now.

See this demo video by Phil and Teds to see how each feature works.





Baby Jogger City Select

$650

Known as a convertible stroller, the Baby Jogger City Select is the ultimate "mix n match"; it can transform from a stylish single stroller into a tandem buggy with the addition of another seat or bassinet with 16 different combinations.

This is wonderful for parents who still have one child and plan to have another baby, because the City Select is a gorgeous, functional single stroller.

 It saves you money when you're ready for that second seat when the new sibling arrives and you don't have to go purchase another stroller, just the cost of the second seat with adapters.

City Select owners give this stroller a 4-star average rating for functionality and maneuverability. Find out why so many parents love this stroller when you read my exclusive review.




Mountain Buggy Duet

$600

One of the disadvantages of a side-by-side twin stroller is that the width is cumbersome. You don't want to take up so much room walking down sidewalks or grocery store aisles. The Mountain Buggy Duet changes all that because it is the same width as the Urban Jungle - only 25 inches! That's right, the rear wheel width on the Duet is the same as the width of a single stroller.

The Duet is very versatile. As a single stroller, use one side with a seat and the other using the Joey clip-on tote bag for extra storage. Take off both seats and use the Duet chassis to hold two car seats for twin babies. Or use the Carry Cot bassinet. There are many possibilities.

The stroller itself weighs 34 pounds, very good for a double, and it holds up to 80 pounds total. Wheels are 10-inch rubber tires with locking front swivel wheels. Because the Duet is such a skinny stroller, the seats are narrower, too. Each seat is only 11 inches wide with a 19½-inch seatback.

Because of the narrow seats, the stroller has gotten some negative reviews

Here's a great little demo video that shows you all the features. Only thing different this year is that the strap that holds the frame together is now an automatic frame lock.





Budget & Midrange Strollers for Twins

The lowest priced options here are the frame strollers, which are perfect for parents who want to transition their babies from car seats into a stroller later on. The upper end of this range is only $300 at the time of writing, which is a real deal. 

Joovy Twin Roo+

$130

Did you ever think that a stroller frame could look and function differently? Joovy has done it! The new Twin Roo is unique in several ways and the first, most obvious is the way that the car seats sit in the frame, as you can see from the photo (car seats not included with purchase).

Joovy has designed the car seats to sit opposite each other because each baby needs undivided attention and by alternating the direction, the parent does not disturb the other. The sideways mount is better for restaurant sittings or when it is time to feed your babies, you can parallel park and not have the handles get in the way.

The Twin Roo base width is wider than other standard car seat stroller frames to add better stability. Smaller six-inch rubber wheels enable better maneuverability. And the drink tray is in a different spot too, did you notice? It is set low by the seat to avoid risky spills and frankly, if you're seated on a park bench, you'll have your drinks right at your fingertips. Now that is cool.

The Joovy Roo accommodates current model car seats from Graco Snugride Click Connect 35/40, Britax B-Safe/ BOB B-Safe, and UPPAbaby MESA infant car seats - car seat adapters are sold separately. Beneath the car seat mounts, an extra large storage basket keeps all your necessities in place, though you need to take out a seat or both to have full access. The convenient, compact fold tops off all the fantastic features!




Baby Trend Double Snap N Go 

$80 

One of the simplest, most lightweight and convenient strollers for twins you can buy is a Baby Trend Double Snap N Go car seat frame stroller. Simply install your two car seats and voila, you have a travel system. (Car seats pictured in photo are NOT included with purchase.) You'll love that this stroller frame can accommodate most major brands such as Graco, Chicco, Evenflo and of course Baby Trend infant car seats.

Some popular features include a parent tray and cup holders, large storage basket and a reliable braking system on the back wheels. Outstanding features without the travel system bulk! This is also the perfect solution until your twin babies get big enough to ride in a fancier double stroller for 6 months and older.

A vast majority of Snap N Go owners give this stroller frame a 4½-star review. Parents rave about the convenience and compact size as well as the ample storage. You simply cannot go wrong with the price under $90 - outstanding for a double stroller!





Chicco Cortina Together

$299

Versatility is a high point on this Chicco double stroller. Parents of twins love that they can use TWO KeyFit or KeyFit 30 Infant Car Seats in this stroller to turn it into a Chicco travel system. If you use just one car seat, you have the option of using either the front or the back seat. As a mom or dad, you know how important it is to have several options available!

Reviews have been solidly positive for the Cortina Together, rating it at an average 4½ stars. Praises for the one-handed maneuverability and smooth ride are common.

Parents appreciate the sturdy frame and durability of this Chicco tandem stroller. It is easy to fold and only slightly larger than a standard stroller once folded, making storage in the trunk space more compact. 





Contours Options Elite

$345

Contours have consistently put out excellent strollers, and their tandems have been met with great reviews in years past. The Options Elite gives you seven seating options for your two children. If you have twins, this stroller is a great choice because it accommodates two infant car seats. One car seat adapter is included with purchase, and most major car seat brands are accepted.

This tandem Contours stroller has a convenient standing fold, and folds with both seats attached. While it is a hefty 38 pounds, it has all the features you could want, like a generous storage basket with zippered sides for easy accessibility. Large sun canopies with mesh panel extensions provide ample shade and air circulation. Mesh pockets in the seat holds little snacks or toys for each child.

Seats have a 3-position recline and adjustable footrest, along with pivoting bumper bars. 5-point safety harnesses keep your passengers snug and safe. Large rubber-coated wheels smooths out the ride and you get a cup holder.

So far, the Options Elite is getting a 4½-star rating for its easy maneuvering and for the great value for money. Read my complete review for lots more in-depth information, measurements, additional photos, and consumer reports.
