Best Twin Strollers & Side-by-Side Double Stroller Reviews

Top Side-by-Side Doubles Revealed

Side-by-side twin strollers can be simple or full-featured with luxurious amenities. Discover the best brands here for 2017.

Side-by-side or twin baby strollers are made with two seats next to each other. This type of double baby stroller used to be too wide to go through doorways or store aisles, but most well-made twin strollers are narrower.

This type of stroller usually has a side-by-side design so that both seats can be fully reclined. Side-by-side strollers for twins also offer the same arm and leg room for both children. Your children can easily interact with each other and see their surroundings better.

For the purposes of easy classification the strollers mentioned here are similar to the double umbrella strollers, which can have almost as many luxury features but are generally lighter weight, fold differently and have separate curved handles. Take a look at those umbrella models for further comparison.

Also, if you're looking for a product that accommodates two infant car seats for twin newborns, take a look at this amazing collection of strollers for twins. The strollers listed below don't all take two car seats.

You are going to see a variety of price points for every budget. I've included eight strollers this year - 4 economy picks under $300 and 4 that are mid-range to luxury priced.

You will also see only the BEST models from not only fantastic reviews from owners who have actually used these strollers, but from findings from Consumer Reports as well as honors and awards that have been earned.

And now, at last, the TOP side-by-side double for siblings of different ages or twin baby strollers. The most expensive ones are listed first, or go straight to Economy picks under $300.

Best Side-by-Side Twin Strollers for 2017



Peg Perego Book for Two

$649

This Peg Perego double stroller is modeled after their popular Book series, using the same fold and features and doubling it for families with two kids. The Book for Two weighs 30.8 pounds and holds each child up to 45 pounds in each seat. Babies 6 months and older can ride, however, both seats can accommodate a Peg Perego Primo Viaggio 4/35 car seat with adapters sold separately, as a convenient option for parents of twins, or use one car seat for siblings of different ages.

A 29-inch width is a narrow footprint so you can enter through most doorways and shopping and maneuvering is easy to do. The Book for Two already has rave reviews about the smooth steering and the way it glides over "mommy terrain" such as grass and park mulch. Kids are comfy with independent reclining seats and adjustable leg rests. Full coverage sun canopies give the right amount of protection and have magnetic covers over the large mesh peek-a-boo windows for quiet checking in. A single bumper bar runs across both seats, hinging open for easy ins and outs.

Parents, you get large easy access baskets beneath the seats as well as netted storage pockets behind the seats. No cup holders for kids or parents, though. But the single handle makes it easy for one-handed steering and parents love the innovated one-handed book fold.

Rave reviews are beginning to pour in with consumers remarking about the super smooth ride and push. So far it is getting 5 stars! Parents like the seats and feel they are very comfortable for their children. They also appreciate lots of storage space.

Baby Jogger City Mini GT Double

$545

Doesn't the GT Double look almost exactly like the City Mini Double? Yes, they look like nearly identical Baby Jogger strollers. But the Baby Jogger City Mini GT Double has a few more enhanced features than the regular City Mini Double. Some of these upgrades include a roomier seat, adjustable height handle, and all-terrain forever air tires that take you over all kinds of surfaces.

The canopies are one inch higher up on the frame, giving taller kids lots of extra headroom. And this stroller is made to handle bigger children! The GT can hold up to 100 pounds! Because of this, it has a higher seatback and from the seat to the footrest is an inch longer than the City Mini. The seat has a bit more padding to support a higher weight limit as well.

Weight-wise, the tires on the GT give the stroller a bit of extra heft. The canopies are pretty much the same as are the safety harnesses and seat recline. While the storage basket and back pocket are both the same, the City Mini GT has an easy-to-use hand brake while the City Mini has a foot brake.

Discover more details, compare with the City Mini Double, and see a video demo in my review.




Valco Baby Snap Duo2

$500-$579 depending on color

Valco Baby has come out with another winner with a sophisticated design and features that are a pleasure to experience. The Snap Duo2 weighs only 24 pounds, nearly unheard of in the double stroller world, especially in keeping with all the luxurious features parents expect. 

The Snap Duo2 has two adjustable leg rests and individual sun canopies. The seats recline to flat and are suitable for newborns, although the Snap Duo2 takes only one car seat. 

It holds each child up to 45 pounds. The narrower width helps with maneuvering through tight spaces. The fold is self standing and you can roll it behind you like luggage and is light enough to carry in the crook of your arm! But it does have a carry handle and shoulder strap for more transport options.

Parents love the Snap Duo2 and recommend this product for the one-handed maneuvering and smooth ride. The large storage basket and oversized canopies are also huge pluses.




Britax B-Agile Double

$360

In 2012, Britax answered the call from parents with two and released the B-Agile Double stroller. And has it ever been a success! It has features galore with both parents and children in mind. The B-Agile double is 30½-inches wide, for breezing through most standard doorways. With a carrying capacity of 50 pounds per seat, this sturdy stroller still only weighs 28 pounds. This product accommodates one Britax car seat with included CLICK & GO system.

For the kidlets, an easy strap reline angles each seatback to just the right position. Each seat is roomy enough to allow plenty of room for growth. Huge canopies give excellent sun protection and ventilation. The 5-point safety harnesses have buckles that open with one-touch and the harness adjustment is very easy to do.

Parents, you get an adjustable-height handle with a nifty little spot right in the middle of the handle for very easy turning. The storage basket is huge and you can access it through the sides and the front through the legrest. Two additional storage pockets behind each seat provides more places to put your stuff. And just like the single B-Agile, you're going to get that fabulous one-handed quick fold.

Reviews so far have been great. 4½-star ratings are pouring in from parents who recommend the Britax B-Agile double stroller for the smooth ride and easy push. The adjustable handle bar and large storage basket are getting high praise, too.

Here is a full demo and review of the Britax B-Agile Double.





Economy Picks: Side-by-Side Twin Strollers for under $300

Zoe XL2 Best

$249 - $269 depending on color

I'm impressed and amazed at this lightweight double stroller because it weighs only 16 pounds with everything: canopies, wheels, all of it - which is the weight of most single strollers in the lightweight category! Children 6 months and older are recommended and each seat can hold up to 50 pounds. Complete your look with matching or contrasting colors for the wheel caps and shoulder pads, bought bundled as part of the color choices or separately.

Despite the light weight, you're not giving up any features. Two full-coverage sun canopies keep your children protected and the padded seats have plenty of headroom and tall seatbacks for growth. A one-handed seat recline gives just the right angle for a rest while padded 5-point safety harnesses snugly secures your passengers. Your little ones also get bumper bars or cup holders and a snack cup; whichever one is needed at the moment to make everybody happy.

Parents, you get plenty of storage from a huge basket beneath the seats to generous pockets behind the seats. You also have a cup holder and a one-piece handle that is high enough for most adults to stroll comfortably. You will love the one-handed easy fold that stands alone, too!

So far the Zoe XL2 is getting 4½-star ratings from consumers who love to take this stroller for traveling. The convenience, light weight, compact size and lots of storage are top the list. Convenient for adults, comfy for kids.

Graco FastAction Fold Duo

$230-$300 depending on color

You want an easy fold, a side-by-side double stroller? You got it with Graco's FastAction Fold Duo Click Connect. The sturdy frame is narrow enough for standard doorways, and it holds your children up to 50 pounds in each seat. Your children will love riding in this stroller because of the comfortable seat padding and deep recline. Each seat has a generous sun canopy with pop-out visors and mesh viewing windows that encourage air circulation. Pivoting, removable cup holders keep your little ones happy.

Most side-by-side twin strollers do not take two car seats, but the FastAction Fold Duo does. Two car seat adapters are included, so you have no additional pieces to purchase and it's compatible with all Graco Click Connect infant car seats. (See more top-rated strollers for twins.)

Mom enjoys lots of storage space beneath the seats that are easy to access, even with the seats reclined. Cup holders and a parent tray hold your essentials. The easy fold is very important, who wants to wrestle their stroller into the car? Ease of fold is getting mixed reviews, but most say it's pretty easy. While all double strollers are bulky, the FastAction Fold Duo Click Connect fits well into most standard car trunks with ease. This product weighs 33 pounds, and for a double, that's a lighter weight than many that are full of features.

Reviews online give this stroller an average 4-star rating for being easy to maneuver and for having lots of storage space. Consumer Reports rates it the highest in the twin strollers category as a Best Buy and it gets very good marks across the board for Ease of Use, Safety and Maneuverability. 



Joovy Scooter X2

$280

ECONOMY PICK This updated version of the attractive ScooterX2 sports bigger wheels and has a stylish graphite colored frame. Weighing only 28 pounds, it is on the lighter side of twin side-by-side strollers. A 30-inch width means that it goes through standard doorways with ease, yet there is lots of room for your kids. Full-sized seats have a one-handed recline that goes nearly flat. Each child has a mesh pocket for storing little snacks or toys.

Like all Joovy strollers, the ScooterX2 boasts bright colors in stain and fade-resistant fabric. The ScooterX2 also has the signature huge ratcheting canopy and an enormous storage basket beneath the seat that will carry all your stuff and then some. Children from 6 months and up can ride and it has a 90-pound weight limit.

Parents write in with an average 4-star rating for the one-handed maneuverability, generous storage basket and large sun canopy. Parents with twins also adore the ScooterX2.

The Scooter X2 is a Consumer Reports Recommended Buy product and is rated at 70%. It has a very good mark for Ease of Use, an excellent mark for Safety and a good mark for Maneuverability. Testers like the large storage basket and other storage options but says the ScooterX2  is heavy and wide and lacks children's or parent trays.




Combi Fold N Go

$230-$260 Depending on color and seller

ECONOMY PICK Weighing just over 21 pounds, the Combi Fold N Go is light weight and folds easily and quickly. In addition it has a self-standing feature and a carrying strap making transport a breeze. The fold is a HUGE hit with parents, with most reviews giving it the highest praises.

Two comfortably padded seats with 5-point safety harnesses snugly keep your children in place. The seats each recline and are recommended for babies 6 months old and up to 50 pounds per seat. Parents love the extending, full-coverage sun canopies with mesh peek-a-boo- windows. Child cup holders and a snack cup in the middle make everybody happy. Parents you get a cup holder, too! I like the 3 tasteful color schemes: red, black or brown.

This convenient, lightweight twin Combi stroller has not gotten many reviews at the time of this writing, but so far parents are happy sending in 4-star ratings.
