7 Side by Side Double Strollers for Twins

These options accommodate every budget

The traditional style of double stroller for twins is a side by side, double-wide stroller with two seats facing the same way, positioning both twins in an equal setting. This stroller style is often more compact and easier to store, but may be more difficult to manuever through narrow doorways or hallways.

Is a side by side the right model for you? If you're unsure where to start, learn how to choose a double stroller for twins.

The Combi Fold N Go Double Stroller is a reasonably priced double stroller with multi-position reclining seats. It is suitable for children 6 months and up. Strangely, despite being branded as a "twin" stroller, it only accommodates one infant carrier seat, on the left side. Hopefully Combi will expand this feature to produce a side-by-side stroller that also functions as a travel system, like the popular tandem models.

Peg-Perego Book for Two

Peg Perego Aria Twin Side-by-Side Double Stroller for Twins

At just 29 inches wide, the Book for Two is Peg-Pérego's most compact side by side stroller. It claims to fit through most doorways while still providing comfortable space for two growing kids. Seats recline individually, and each canopy is positionable and features a window. It's also travel system compatible for up to two car seats.

Maclaren claims to have invented the umbrella stroller, and they revolutionized the double stroller market in 1991 with the Duette model. Both the Twin Triumph and the upgraded Twin Techno models feature independently positioned seats and sun visors. Both are lightweight, weighing 21 and 25 pounds, respectively, and each has storage baskets.

However, these Maclaren products are only designed to hold children up to 66 pounds, not the 90 pounds advertised by competitors.

Mountain Buggy Duet

This New Zealand company has won awards for design innovation, and their products are valued for durability and versatility. Take the Duet, for example: it converts from a single stroller with tons of storage to a double stroller, and it's approximately 25 inches slim at the wheel base. Mountain Buggy also offers many add-ons and accessories for parents who like options.

Chicco Echo

The Chicco Echo is practical, compact and, above all, functional. This double stroller folds compactly and has a carrying handle that makes it easy to transport. Each seat can be adjusted to four different positions, and the leg rests can be adjusted to two positions. The rear canopies can be positioned to enclose or open for air flow.

Foundations Duo-SS

Unfortunately this stroller has been discontinued by the manufacturer, but it's still available on Amazon. This mid-level model offers features like a foot brake and roomy storage basket, but the Duo-SS still lacks the level of luxury found on more expensive models. For example, there is a canopy, but it is windowless and ventless. At 33 inches wide, it is not the narrowest option on the market, but it should fit through most doorways.

Baby Jogger City Mini Double

Baby Jogger originated the design for high performance, all-terrain fitness strollers, but their City line offers the traditional styling of a side by side model with dual swivel wheels in the front. Their mid-range City Mini Double is quite versatile. It has a streamlined profile appropriate for everyday use around town and can accommodate both infant twins (with the seats reclined) and older twins (up to 100 pounds combined weight).

A one-handed fold-down operation and light weight makes this an excellent option for easy storage. Select Baby Jogger models offer more features, such as the ability to use infant seats, but tend to carry a bigger price tag.
