The world of baby strollers seems to all but forgotten about mothers with more than one child. It seems to have been optimized for mothers with one baby at a time, with strollers for twins becoming a rare and expensive item. It’s as if mothers with twins are secretly being ostracized for something they have no control over.
Does this resonate with you? Have you been on the search for a double stroller for twins without success? Every time you seem to have stumbled on gold you find the twin strollers on the market are either too expensive or just the wrong quality.
We know how frustrating it can feel for a mother when they simply can’t find something good enough for their two babies. And it is because of that that we decided to go do all the heavy lifting; trawling and fishing through Amazon to find something everyone will love.
Well, the results were better than expected. There were not one, but 7 twin baby strollers we think would be just about right. Today we’re going to look at each one individually. Have a skim through and find one that fits you and your needs.
1. Joovy Scooter X2, Blueberry
- 30" width-fits through standard doors, accommodates two 45 pounds children (90 pounds total)
- Recline each seat and adjust each footrest independently of each other
- One-hand fold, huge basket and canopy, removable bumper bar
I’m mentioning the blueberry color in particular because that’s the one that’s going for the lowest price.
Large Double Wheels – The wheels on this twin stroller are larger than what you’ll regularly find in a stroller.
With sealed bearings for longevity, these wheels will ensure you have a smooth ride. The maneuverability is also excellent and the front wheels are double wheels for that extra stability.
Great Storage Capacity – The canopy and storage basket on this stroller are actually touted to be the largest on the market!
You’ve got plenty of meshing and little handy pockets for everything. Wondering where to store snacks for the stroll? You’re sorted! Need a place to put your phone? Say no more! It’s not just a stroller; it also feels like your own personal handbag.
Exceptionally comfortable and safe – Your children’s safety is, understandably, your number one priority when choosing the appropriate stroller. This has been considered in great detail in the design of this twin baby stroller.
A harness and a bumper bar that you can remove come with the package, with the harness being the 5 point type so your kids won’t bump around during a ride. Comfort is also taken care of with a variable reclining seat that can be adjusted into a countless number of positions.
Easy to put away – Apart from the fact that the X2 is created for durability (meaning no matter how many times you fold it will take a long time before wear and tear become an issue) it is also remarkably easy to fold. Just one fold and you can put it away!
The cup holders are made of fishnet nylons. They might not be ideal for hot beverages. Also, stability of your drinks in the holder might be an issue due to this.
“A little hard to maneuver on grass and gravel but a great stroller.”
“Actually fits through the door!”
2. Graco Ready2Grow LX
Pretty easy to use – In the world of strollers for twins, many strollers cannot even hold a candle to this one. Getting out with your young ones in this stroller is a breeze with its specific design.
The car seats are click connected, so they can be removed as you wish, with a leveled design making strolls loads of fun.
Versatility – The Graco Ready2gro LX stroller is the prince of versatility with its dozen riding positions for both infants and youth. This stroller wasn’t just built with twins in mind. If you have two children of different ages the Graco has you sorted.
The wheels ensure a smooth journey – Yep! That’s right! The front wheels are swivel wheels. Lockable, of course, and double wheels.
Rides in this stroller will be smooth and stable so your children don’t even feel like they’re in a moving object.
Great rear seat design – The rear seat features the face time orientation. That means whichever child is seated in the back, they get to talk to mommy throughout the ride.
This is a great opportunity to connect with your child during those long rides through the streets.
Comfort is Key – The strollers have been designed to be able to recline to up to near flat if the baby is sleeping to ensure maximum comfort.
There are very easy to adjust and you can find the most comfortable position for your child without much hassle.
Very easy to fold – Pulling the stroller out and prepping it for a ride has never been easier. With just one fold the stroller can stand on itself and is ready for the passengers!
Very durable – The Graco has been designed to cater to children as they continue growing. The front seats will hold up to 50 lbs while the rear seat will easily accommodate 40 lbs. This stroller is guaranteed to serve you for years.
Storage space is available – Right underneath the toddler bench is the storage basket, which is very spacious and can hold any snacks or other basic necessities you might want to carry on your stroll. In addition there are handy cup holders where you can place your drinks to ensure refreshment during the trip.
This stroller is a little on the heavier side due to all the extra features. That means it might need daddy’s strength to carry and put into the trunk of the car.
“Great fit for me and my family”
“The harness is actually pretty stable. Both 3 and 5 point”
“It’s a pretty versatile stroller. I wouldn’t be surprised if it could change my baby’s diapers too!”
3. Baby Trend Expedition, Centennial

Spacious enough for your toddlers to fit in – Unlike most twin strollers out there, this one actually has ample room for your toddlers to sit in so they don’t look and feel like a can of sardines.
Comfort attended to for each individual seat – The seats can actually be individually adjusted to recline or sit upright! So while one child is fast asleep the other one can sit up and enjoy the view!
Great storage space – The storage is spacious enough to carry as many snacks as you reasonably need. There are also speakers to hook up to your iPod! Gentle, relaxing music can now be an integral part of your strolls.
It might not fit your children when they grow a little older, due to the rigidity of the seating space.
“Doesn’t fit in a doorway. That’s actually good news because it means it can fit my children!’
“Awesome part is that I can take the rear wheels off with one click!”
“Great value for money.”

Locking wheels with swivel capabilities – The front- wheels are lightweight 8 inches, but don’t let that fool you. They are very sturdy and can hold their own against larger double-wheels. You can have them swivel around for short rides in winding places or lock them for longer distances.
As for the 12 “ rear wheels, you can be sure to conquer any terrain without so much as wake up your sleeping toddler.

Can fit in narrow spaces – One big hassle most parents with twin baby strollers face is that the strollers usually won’t fit between parked cars.
This makes it necessary to leave on baby behind while you get the other one or put them in the car. You won’t be facing this kind of problem with the City Select. This stroller will just about fit in any space there is.
A 3-part canopy ensures maximum sun protection for your child – The canopy is actually ample and fully covers your toddler as well as having a peek-a-boo hole with a silent magnetic flap that puts itself back into place.
It’s also adjustable for taller children or if you’d like to improve your baby’s ventilation.
Cross compatible with accessories – The City Select is pretty versatile in that it can be fitted with accessories from other brands such as Jeep’s rain shield or the mummy hook from Munchkin. This makes it easier to customize the stroller for your particular needs.
Secure hand brake gives you full control – The front wheels are swivel and locking. A hand operated brake ensures you have full control of them and can start and stop when you want.
You actually have to take the seats off before you fold it to put it away. This means it might take longer than other strollers to fold.
”Not bad for the price range”
“It was given to me as a gift. This is the best gift I have ever received”
“It was a perfect fit for my family”
