Best side by side twin stroller for 2021 – 7 Double stroller reviews and comparisons

| | ,

If you’ve found yourself on the lookout for a twin stroller, congratulations! Life is about to get double fun! But now onto the serious stuff. Believe us that a crummy double stroller will make parenting feel crummier. And a good twin stroller will make it a bit more of a breeze. This review focuses on side-by-side twin strollers with emphasis on the features that make your life easier. 

We’ll share our twin stroller top pick, as well as the best double strollers to meet different needs. As a heads-up, all these strollers are Disney-approved too! Jump straight to:

Types of Double Strollers

Tandem or in-line double strollers

These strollers have the babies’ seats placed one behind the other. They’re especially useful if you’ll just be using them to carell car seats around because they’re narrower. 

On the flip side, this type of double stroller is harder to maneuver. Also, it often looks like one of the kids gets the shorter end of the stick in terms of positioning. 

(This list doesn’t include any tandem strollers)

Side-by-side twin strollers

Side-by-side double strollers have your kids sitting next to each other meaning they have the same view. A drawback to this type of stroller is that they’re wider. You’ll always have to scooch through doors and may have a crowd behind you on the sidewalk. 

At the same time, modern twin strollers are designed to fit through standard doors and are loaded with features to ensure comfort for both you and your kids. From reclinable seats to all-wheel suspension to ample storage space, having a good double stroller will make parenting twins that much easier. 

How to Choose a Twin Stroller

Consider your daily lifestyle. 

Do you have to dredge up some stairs every day? Then a lightweight twin stroller with good wheels is a must.
Will you be taking your kids on long outings and to the store? Then look out for ample storage space. 
Need to cut through some grass on the way to the playground? Choose all-terrain and jogging double strollers with sturdy wheels and good suspension. 

Another big questions is:

How much are you planning to spend on your twin stroller?

The strollers on this list range from under $200 to almost $2000. A good stroller – one that’s comfortable for both babies and parents – will make your life out and about much easier. And if you’re planning on using it from birth to preschool, it’s likely worth the investment. 

Other questions to ask yourself before buying a side-by-side twin stroller:

  • Can you get it through your front door and entryway?
  • Does it fit in your trunk?
  • Do you need it to fit two car seats (surprisingly hard to do.) 
  • Do you want bassinets?

Disney-Approved Twin Strollers:

One more question to ask yourself. If you have a dream of taking your kids to Disney, might as well think ahead! 

Does Disney allow double strollers?

Disney World and DisneyLand require that strollers are 31 in wide and 52 in long or smaller. Also, wagons and wagon-strollers are not permitted. 

All strollers on this list fit this requirement (unless otherwise stated.)

Bumbleride Indie Twin Double Stroller

Why We love the Bumbleride Indie Twin Double Stroller

This awesome twin side-by-side stroller ticks all our boxes.

  • The seats fully recline – perfect for babies! 
  • It’s car seat compatible (with adapters sold separately.) 
  • Can be a double bassinet stroller (with bassinets sold separately.) 
  • It’s truly all-terrain with its air-filled tires and all-wheel suspension. 
  • It has quick auto fold and will fit in most trunks. 

On top of that, Bumbleride is an eco-friendly company! In fact, 25% of plastic components are sources from ocean plastics and the fabric is made from 100% recycled PET. Not only that, their strollers have kept one million plastic water bottles out of landfills! 

There’s literally nothing more we could ask for!

  • Bassinet option: yes, sold separately

Side-by-Side Twin Strollers for Jogging and All-Terrain

If you’re a family who’s into fitness and adventure – welcome to the club! But you don’t want crummy wheels or poor suspension slowing you down. Years ago the only option we had was the schwinn double jogging stroller (which had awesome inflated wheels and a speaker!) That stroller is long gone, but there are more great options that took its place. These all terrain strollers will give you and your little ones a smooth ride no matter how fast you’re going.

Thule Urban Glide 2

Why we love the Thule twin stroller

This twin stroller is SO COOL! We love the large wheels and suspension which give your little ones a smooth ride when you’re going off-road. The twist hand brake will give you some added peace of mind, and its one-hand easy folding will make twin parenting a teensy bit easier.

What else: 

  • Typical price: $750
  • Weight: 34 lbs
  • Child weight limit: 100 lbs (total)
  • Width: 31 in
  • Size when folded: 34 x 31 x 16 in
  • Compatible with: car seats adapters (sold separately.) 
  • Bassinet option: yes (sold separately.)

BOB Revolution Flex 3.0 Duallie

Why we love the BOB twin stroller

What’s not to love about this twin stroller? The mountain-bike style suspension and sturdy wheels are great for joggers, but it offers way more! This double stroller has an adjustable handlebar, easy 2-step fold, and tons of storage. It also has one-hand reclining and  humongous canopies – meaning your kids will have a comfortable ride. 

Good to know:

This double stroller is compatible with a car seat from Britax, Chicco, Graco, and Peg Perego,  but only for one seat – not two. Although some reviewers note that adapters are hard to find. 

What else: 

  • Typical price: $640
  • Weight: 33 lbs
  • Child weight limit: 100 lbs (total)
  • Width: 30.5 in
  • Size when folded: 40 x 30.5 x 17.5 in

Twin Strollers Compatible With Two Car Seats

If you’re planning to use your twin stroller from birth, there’s no getting away from needing to use it with car seats. And this feature is surprisingly hard to accommodate. So aside the Bumbleride above, there’s also: 

Bugaboo Donkey 3 Twin Stroller

Why we love it:

This gorgeous double stroller will be your one-stop shop from birth to preschool! One of the things we love is that you get to choose if your babies face you or the world as they ride around, since at different times they might prefer either-or. It’s one of the only side-by-side twin strollers that can accommodate two car seats, but there’s so much more to love! 

  • It comes with two seats AND two bassinets! 
  • The seats are independently reclinable and can be outward OR inward facing. 
  • Height-adjustable handlebar (heaven for tall parents like this one!) 
  • Super easy to push and maneuver. 

One drawback is that this stroller is a little hard to fold up (despite the brand’s claim that it’s a piece of cake) but you get used to it. 

What else: 

  • Typical price: $1789
  • Child weight limit: 90 lbs total
  • Compatible with: Chicco, Cybex, Clek, Maxi-Cosi, and Nuna car seats. Also a toddler stroller-board as well as tons of other accessories can be purchased separately. 
  • Bassinet option: yes – included! 

Most Lightweight Side-by-Side Twin Stroller

Having a lightweight stroller can be a game-changer if you know you’ll have to regularly take it in and out of your trunk (they’re all easy-fold too!) or if you’re out and about with stairs and no ramps. 

AND! These double strollers are not only the most lightweight, they’re also the lowest-priced on this list, so they fall under two categories! 

Most affordable double strollers:

  • Typical price: $145
  • Weight: 23 lbs
  • Child weight limit: 80 lbs (total)
  • Width: 31 in
