5.00 rating Lots of features for this price range by Mom, GA on January 1, 2004
When considering a double umbrella stroller for my sons, 2 and 4, we did not want to spend a fortune since we knew it would not be used long term. Our primary reason for purchasing was for a trip to Walt Disney World. My husband and I are both tall at 6'4" and 5'10". Our children are tall as well so smaller, and less expensive strollers, such as the jeep side by side, did not work comfortably for us. Since the boys were older, and therefor heavier, I wanted to make sure what we bought was going to be durable enough to handle their weight as well. We compared our options including this stroller, Maclarens, Inglesina, Peg Perego etc. and noticed the big difference in price between the Chicco and the others. We could not find anywhere to compare them side by side locally so we ordered this one making sure we selected somewhere with a good return policy and then compared it to the others we could find locally. What I found was that this stroller had all of the features I was looking for, handled quite well and was comfy for my children for more than $100 less than the other models. We asked the boys which stroller they preferred and both answered the Chicco. My oldest son said they had more room in this stroller. It was comfortable for my husband and I to push as well even with their combined weight. The seats were easy to recline even with a sleeping child. I appreciated that the seats and canopies operated completely independent of each other. Folding the stroller was easy. A bit tight at first but after a few fold/unfold it was much easier. It fit well in the back of our minivan or in my husband's Accord and still left ample room for other things with it. We also appreciated the nice sized baskets under the seat as well. Overall I have been quite pleased with this stroller. It has held up well and the kids still find it quite comfortable. Definitely worth looking at if you are hoping to spend less than the cost of the Maclaren or Peg Perego strollers.
4.00 rating Chicco Stroller by Mom, CA on January 1, 2004
This is a really nice looking double umbrella stroller. I love the large cargo basket under the stroller. It is really great that the two seats recline separately from each other so that you can lay one child back if he or she is sleeping and you can leave the other child in the sitting position. It is easy to get the kids in and out quickly. The canopy is okay, but doesn't give much shading. My main complaint with the stroller is that it is sometimes hard to fit through doorways and in can be difficult to fit it through some smaller areas of stores.
