5.00 rating Great buy & Perfect for infant & toddler by Olivia on November 6, 2006
We finally upgraded to a double stroller after our 3rd child was born (a newborn & 1yo). After much research and testing in the stores, we ultimately decided to go with this one. It's very sturdy, easy to maneuver, and very securely holds an infant carseat. -I even overheard the sales guy @ the store suggesting this over a Maclaren & Peg Perego side-by-side. Yes, it's not as small and cute as those, but I personally found this one much more sturdy and so much easier to move about (we tested WITH 2 kids). I also HAVE to mention the HUGE storage basket! They definitely know that you'll need it with two kids!! It's also very simple to open & close, I was pretty amazed since it's a double!
5.00 rating a must have by Special mom, Seattle, WA on January 1, 2004
Although we just purchased our Duoglider Stroller... I must say that it is wonderful! I can turn it easily and it closes down smaller than any other model we found. It is lightweight for a double stroller and looks as good as it works! Our two year old fits well and is comfortable in either seat. It comes with ample storage and drink carrier, which many double strollers do not have and it fits in my car! I think it is better than the Peg Perego stroller because of the stadium seating and ease of handling. No wonder it is so well liked!

I was looking for a duo stroller that the first strollers carseat would fit in and found this one.
5.00 rating great double stroller by Mom, Portland, OR on January 1, 2004
This double stroller has worked very well for us. We have a 3 year old and an infant. Our 3 year old is pretty tall and he fits well into the front seat (our baby girl still rides in her Graco carseat in the backseat). The stroller is easy to maneuver, although it does take some getting used to since it is so much longer than a single stroller. I was actually surprised how easy it was to open and close this stroller. It isn't too bad lifting it in and out of the car trunk, even though it's 37 pounds. To fit into our Honda Civic's trunk, we had to remove the front tray and canopy, but that's not a big deal. If you have a larger car or an SUV or mini van fitting it into your cargo space shouldn't be a problem. The parent tray that closes is a nice extra - you can put your keys or cell phone in it or some snacks for the little ones.
3.00 rating not engineered by parents by Michelle, Southhampton, MA on January 1, 2004
ne thing I cannot understand is why companies put out a product before it is thoroughly tested by the people that will use that product. I was so excited to get this stroller and hit the mall (lots of room for new purchases in the large storage area underneath - from what I read). When I put my infant in the rear seat (in her car seat), I realized that I had no access to the large storage area under the stroller due to the seat requiring a full recline. I decided to put my toddler in the back seat and my infant in front, however, then my toddler couldnt see ahead of the infant seat - very important to keep her occupied. A quick fix to this problem would have been to make the storage area a "drop down" type. I have spoken to many other moms who own this stroller and it seems to be the only main complaint. Other than that, the stroller is very easy to maneuver and doesnt weigh quite a whole ton. It looks nice too! Too bad Graco didnt test this properly - it would have gotten a strong 5 baby bottle rating from me and mine!
