Double Strollers - Hickory Hills,IL
Hi moms -
I am looking for some feedback on a couple of strollers. Does anyone have the BOB or Phil and Ted's double stroller? If so, what do you think about them? Pros or cons? I currently have a double stroller that I am not happy with and I want something that will be easy to be active with. Thanks for the help!

I just started using my BOB Revolution and adore it. I can steer it one handed and the kids are so comfortable in it. The brake is so easy to use. The only thing I don't like is that the basket underneath isn't very big for the size of the stroller and a little awkward to get to but other
than that it's amazing. Ebay saved me about $100 off the retail price. It was still new and came in the original box. I've not really had a problem getting through doorways but the mall was a little hard getting through aisles although I always felt cramped with a single stroller too at the mall. It was so worth the money.

I really like the Zooper brand. They are large, side by side, and easy to push. I think it is comparable to the Peg Perego, which I really liked also. The way the wheels glide makes the pushing a lot easier! Hope this helped.

I love, love, love my Bob Revolution Dualie. It is so easy to manuever and light. With one small movement of a switch, it becomes a jogger. I got my on e-bay (new in box) and got a better deal. It was $400 but well worth it.

I bought my sister the BOB Revolution Duallie when she had her 2nd baby in October. It is awesome. I take it for a spin every time I visit. I can drink coffee while pushing my 15 month old and her 2 year old. It navigates better than my single Graco. I bought the basket attachment & parent tray - and that's no good for holding hot beverages - but fine for water bottles. With all the accessories, it was more than $600! (grandma and another uncle chipped in) - but I think it's totally worth it!

I have twins, and I fell in LOVE with the BOB Sport Utility Duallie after test driving it inside and outside at REI in Oak Brook. But I couldn't afford it at the time, and accepted a friend's lightly used Baby Trend double jogger for free instead! I find that most of the joggers (I have a single Yakima Bug from my 1st child) handle rough terrain well - state park & forest preserve trails, gravel, dirt, crushed limestone bike trails. I also have a Schwinn convertible double stroller/bike trailer that I got at Target. I thought I'd just use it for the bike, but it's actually surprisingly easy to use as a stroller on off-road trails, too. I find both of my doubles (and even my single jogger) to be cumbersome indoors or in crowds, though, like at festivals or the zoos. I'd bring your kids along, and test them all out, personally. I have yet to find a place that wouldn't let me. I can't imagine NOT being happy with either the Bob or Phil & Ted's, though! Good luck!
