Double strollers are almost one of the most useful tools for parents with two or more children. Finding the perfect double stroller, however, is a daunting task. The various styles make it hard for parents to know which strollers will aid them or which will get in the way.
Tandem strollers are our favorite style of double strollers. This is because they often fit through doorways with ease, and can grow with you children from infancy until around three or four years old. Take a peek through our favorite tandem strollers for siblings or twins.
First, take a quick look at our current best tandem stroller recommendations:

The Graco DuoGlider Classic Connect LX stroller is our favorite tandem stroller and a bestseller on Amazon. This stroller is jam-packed with features that every parent will enjoy. The stroller is small compared to many other double strollers. It is also one of the most versatile strollers, with twelve riding options for your little ones!
This stroller sells on Amazon for under $300 and is another Baby Trend favorite. The rear seat stands out because of the swing-away tray with cup holder can be removed to convert the stroller to a conventional sit and stand. This is a great tandem double stroller for parents of twins and children of different ages.
The Contours Elite Tandem Stroller offers the most flexibility when it comes to seating configurations. Like the previous contenders, this stroller only has a few nit-picky negatives. You can buy this stroller for under $400.
Searching for a stroller for two (or more) children is much more involved than buying a stroller for a single passenger. There are more factors to take into account. To be sure you and your children are safe and comfortable.
Tandem, or in-line strollers are easier to navigate through small spaces, crowds, and narrow doorways. Features often have to be sacrificed to fit the two seats in a line without making the stroller too difficult to navigate. If you don’t think you will need to travel through tight spaces, a side-by-side stroller will have the same features in both seats.
The tires are important to consider when it comes to safety and comfort. Look for rubber tires, which last much longer than plastic, or coated foam tires. Rubber tires will not only last longer, but they may also keep a crack in the cement from disturbing any afternoon naps.
Before you spring on a stroller packed with a bunch of features, think about how frequently you plan to use it and how long you will use it. If you only plan on using it occasionally, you may want to choose a cheaper stroller with less features, or one that only includes the features you will want on those occasional trips.
