  1. $169.99 at Target. When I was a young mother, I couldn't have afforded something that cost the equivalent of this one. I got mine 'for free' from the old Trading Stamp days just as they were going out of circulation.

  2. I have that stroller and love it. My son is almost 3 and my daughter just turned 1. My only issue is that it will not fit in my car. Lol

  3. I loved my double stroller, it was a long one like that, not a wide one, which I always think must be impossible to use if you're in town! I worked as a nanny years ago for twins and the mom had a twin pram that she had shipped over from Italy which was in the style of the prams from the 70s, huge and bulky, you couldn't even get it in the car!!

  6. Don't have any more. Two is more than enough.

    1. Children are a gift from God. The fruit of the womb is a reward!

    2. Aw, I'm sorry that you think people shouldn't have more than one child. How lonely!

    3. That's rather a unkind comment. I hope the Lord blesses her with more children when the time is right.

    4. Stop badgering this person just because they expressed their opinion. Some people just can't afford more than two! Plus maybe they had two very complicated deliveries, and don't think they should risk their health or life to have more children. There is nothing wrong with only having one or two children!

  7. In my opinion, if you need a double stroller then your kids are too close together in age! What is wrong with spacing your children a little farther apart? Why not enjoy them a little bit more when they are young, rather than rushing to have another one right away?

    1. Why can't she have her own kids when she wants without people criticizing her decision?

    2. What about families with twins?

    3. That is your opinion. Everyone can make their own choices how they want to space their children. Why do you assume they aren't enjoying them more? You can enjoy multiple children at the same time.

  8. I have really enjoyed my Phil & Ted double stroller. It's the size of one with a rumble seat. It's pricey but so worth it! I found mine used and have used it for the last 5 years and it still works great. If I would ever need a new stroller though I think I would go for an uppa baby. It has more options. You can use as a double and also get a skateboard attachment so that you can push 3 Kids! Wish I would have had that with my first 3, they are very close in age - 2 1/2 years between the 1st and the 3rd

  9. My mom and sister blessed me with this exact same stroller. I loved using it. Yes, it makes towing two precious little ones around a whole lot easier.

  11. We had a Graco double stroller when our oldest two were little. It was a great stroller but a bear to maneuver. And I didn't dare take it on a bus. It did however fit in our car rather nicely.

  12. She can have as many children as she wishes but if she thinks two is a lot of work, imagine having 19....

  13. This stroller might work right now, when the younger baby is still in a 'carrier' type of seat but what happens when she's too large for the car seat carrier? Does it convert in to a '2 child stroller"? If not, it's not worth the money, IMO.

  14. I had a Phil and Teds double, I loved it! I had 3 kids close together and it was so great. Light, easy to steer, folded up, fitted in lots of groceries underneath, not too wide because the kids weren't side by side. The baby or the toddler could sleep if they needed. It was awesome.
