5.00 rating Great for Infant and Toddler by Eliza, Houston, TX on January 1, 2004
I spent a few months looking into double strollers before I bought this one. I had it narrowed down to the Peg Perego Aria and the Combi Twin Savvy EX. What ultimately convinced me to buy the Combi was going into a store that sold both and test driving them with my 21 month and 1 month daughters in the seats. The Combi was so much sturdier than the Peg Perego which made it much easier to steer. Yes, the Aria has a bigger basket, but that is the only thing that was better. Benefits to the Combi: Fabric is much thicker and cushier, EX version has boots for the fronts of the stroller which helps when using with infants, hoods are much bigger, 6 sets of wheels make it sturdier, easy to use with different age/size children, light weight is comparable to Aria, easier to steer.
5.00 rating Ultimately 5 stars but there are a few things I wish this had..... by Elizabeth, Seattle, WA on January 1, 2004
With our first daughter we bought a Graco travel system, of course they have everything......a huge basket underneath, cup holders and other handy compartments. When I found out we were pregnant again and that I would need a double stroller I went to work researching. It ultimately came down to the Twin Savvy and the Aria Twin. After trying out both models I went with this Twin Savvy. What I LOVE about this stroller: *It is extremely light weight, infact it feels lighter than my single stroller from the travel system I have. It's very easy to stear, with a 2 year old and newborn there is a huge weight difference. But this stears like a dream. *It folds up extremely small. It fold in half and then in half again, so it takes up less space than my old travel system stroller. And it also stands upright on it's own which is handy when I take it places. *The padding is very comfy for my girls, much more comfy than other strollers Ive seen. What I DIDNT like so much: *Smallish baskets underneath the seats: I was spoiled with my HUGE basket in the travel system. While my large diaper bag doesnt fit easily I do make it fit and with two baskets it's not that bad. *The straps are a little more time consuming than with other strollers. But once you do it once it becomes very fast. The pro's certainly outweighed the con's with this stroller. And while the price is pretty high I realize a stroller isnt something you want to skimp on.
4.00 rating Great for 2 kids- some drawbacks, though by R. Gonzalez, Pacific Northwest on January 1, 2004
After purchasing and returning both the Evenflo Take-Me-Too stroller and the Graco Duoglider, we ended up with this stroller- but mostly as a 'lesser of all the evils.' There is absolutely no perfect double stroller out there, but this seemed to fit most of our requirements, while giving up the least amount of desired features. Pros: Sooooo super light and highly manueverable. I love pushing it around, even with just one kid in it (it doesn't pull to one side like many others when my toddler is out walking). I love the easy-opening and relatively easy-closing. It has the largest canopies I've evern seen on a side-by-side stroller. The cupholders & shared snack holder are a rare feature on double strollers and a MUST for our 2-year-old. The parent sack (while reviews were bad) is actually quite useful. It securely holds my cell phone & digital camera (unlike my Graco single), and we really only ever use the cupholders for water bottles so we have no problems with drinks spilling out. Cons: Price- it was definitely over my original budget, but after seeing the other options I decided any stroller that would cut down on my frustration and difficulty while out & about with 2 kids was well worth the money (definitely not my attitude when I first started shopping for doubles!). Also, the baskets are pretty much useless. I've resigned myself to this & just pretend they aren't there except to store kids' jackets and a small snack bag. I have a diaper bag with 'stroller hooks' so I just take it off my shoulder & clip it onto the handle. It works great! Oh- other great thing is that it folds up even smaller than my Graco Quattro single stroller and it feels even lighter than my single, too. Love this stroller! Makes life with 2 little ones so much easier.
4.00 rating Mom of Twins by Bethany, Wilmington, NC on January 1, 2004
My husband got me this stroller as a gift after we bought the Combi Convert car seats for our twin girls. I love the Combi company and would recommend their products. (especially their car seats) This stroller is light weight and folds up wonderfully and SMALL! (Much smaller than my Graco Duo Glider.) The seats are very soft and comfortable and I love the shoulder strap. But before you buy this stroller, go to the store and see if your child climbs out of the seats. My girls, who are 20 months now, will NOT stay in them and the strap are a HUGE PAIN to tighten. It's extremely frustrating!! The cup holders are small and awkward and the bottom baskets are tiny! There are many things I like about this stroller and some that I do not. My advice, try it out before you buy it!
3.00 rating It's not bad but don't try to use the carseat with it by N.P., Jacsonville, FL on January 1, 2004
After a lot of research on double strollers for my newborn and 17 month old, I decided on this one because it was lightweight and also allowed for an infant car seat to be attached. Well, for the price, I'm not that happy. First, the infant car seat does not fit well. Everytime I use it I have to jam it into the stroller because it does not really fit even though it's the correct carseat. I'm worried the stroller will break at any moment since I have to push that hard just to get it to fit. Further, if the infant seat is in the other seat is pretty cramped. And like everyone else has said, forget trying to use the baskets. Not only are they small, but there is a bar at the top, across the baskets, that make it impossible to squeeze anything into them. I just pack a very small bag, and I mean small, that is large enough to fit 2-3 diapers, some wipes and a snack. I leave my large diaper bag in the car. Without the car seat, the stroller is not bad and I suppose I'm happy with it. It is very light and once you figure out how to fold the sroller (and it's not that easy at first), the stroller does fold up rather compact and fits very easily into my car. I figure once my youngest is old enough to sit in the stroller without the car seat, I'll be much happier. All in all, until one of the other high-end stoller manufacturers make a double stroller that allows for an attachable infant car seat, this one is the better choice. I could not imagine having to push one of those huge Graco strollers around.
