5.0 out of 5 stars Best Option for Us!, August 8, 2008
This review is from: Kolcraft Contours Options Tandem Stroller, Ruby (Baby Product)
Our second child came as a bit of a surprise, so we only had about 8 months to adjust and make plans. We looked at a number of two-child stroller options. The most common that we saw, the side-by-side strollers, were just too wide and difficult to manage, with parents often blocking whole isles and walk ways. So, we decided a tandem was the best option.

We went to Baby-R-Us and saw the Countour-Options stroller before any other. It was big and red, so who could miss it. We had the same response as anyone else:

UPSIDE: configurable, VERY maneuverable, and room enough for stuff.

DOWNSIDE: big, heavy, took a little to figure out how to fold, and you need to remove the back seat to collapse it.

But, it's not unmanageably heavy, and how light can stroller that's supposed to support as much as a combined 80 pounds of kids, plus your stuff actually be? Also, if you are using the rack for the baby basket car seat, and you put the rack in back, you can collapse the stroller to within an inch of its fully folded form without removing the rack. Just fold the collapsible sides up. But, really, it's such easy on and off with the seats it's not an inconvenience to remove a seat anyway.

Since we first saw the Contour Options stroller, we have seen several parents with "Phil and Teds", which is one of those froo-froo labels like "BOB" that costs $400-$700+. It is a jogging stroller that adds a little sloping sled to the back so your baby can lay down or your older child can slide in like angled luggage. It is small, and light weight, but one child will always be slid in where he/she can't move much or see, and there's no room for anything in it. We also looked at the Graco Quattro just before we bought, and it was a close second, but wasn't configurable, so we decided that, for the money and what it can do, the Contour-Options is the best for us. So far, so good, it's been easy and fun to use.
