I did tons and tons of research on double strollers while I was pregnant with my second daughter, and really thought about what features were important to me, and what weren't. When I bought this, it only had 2 or 3 reviews on it at the time, but they were both really well-written reviews with pros and cons, so I took a chance, and I am so glad I did! First of all, it arrived a day earlier than it said it would (I paid the extra $3 to have it shipped to my house - such a good idea!), and it only took me about 30 minutes to get it set up. (Another 10 minutes to get it out of my house, because, like a bozo I put it together in a flurry of excitement in my front hall and the stroller is wider than my doors). I've had it for over a month now, and have used it for several different things.
*It's really great to take to parks or on long walks because there is TONS of storage, 2 cupholders for each kid, and 2 for the parent as well. (I love cupholders, that was definitely a selling point for me!) The storage baskets are fairly easy to get to, and hold lots of stuff. There's also pockets behind each seat, great for storing wipes, dirty onesies (sigh), etc.
*The snack trays open and fold out to the side to allow your bigger kid the freedom to get out and run off energy.
*The foot rest is big enough for BOTH kids, a huge selling point.
*My Graco carseat fits perfectly. The back also lays down enough that I can put my 2-month-old in there and sometimes, if I'm really lucky, she'll take a nap.
*The sun shades pull all the way down, which I like because my 3-year-old can keep the sun out of her face no matter which direction it's coming from, and which she likes because it's all the rage to play with them, apparently.
*It steers like a dream. You can push it with one hand, which is great when you have your newborn in the sling and the toddler on your hip. (Yeah, glad I brought the stroller...)
*I think the speakers work fine. I could do with or without them, but it is pretty cool that I have the option...
*Although the stroller is very heavy (heavy enough that I feel like I got a workout lifting it from my minivan!), even with two big kids in it. (I've pushed around my daughter and several of her friends...the stroller is super cool. It attracts new friends, I swear) CONS:
*It is very heavy. It folds nicely, but it's a pain to have to lift it.
*The front wheels do shake when you run BUT, if you lock them, they're fine. Although because it is so heavy, it's kind of hard to pull the stroller back to turn corners. I just shrug it off as an upper body workout;)
*The seats do not sit all the way upright. I don't really care about this, and neither does my daughter so far.
*It's too wide to take shopping. I solved that problem by buying an inline double stroller off craigslist. (I have a slight stroller obsession). I mostly use this stroller for walks and jogs. Although today I took it to the beach and it was perfect! I just love the storage capacity! Even the cons aren't enough to make me dislike one single aspect of this stroller. I highly recommend it!
