Kolcraft Contours Options Tandem Stroller Review

Looking for a double stroller that does it all? The Kolcraft Contours Options Tandem Stroller comes pretty close, and at a lower price than other full-featured double strollers. This stroller offers seven different seating configurations, so your babies can always be comfy.

Every adjustment, from sunshade to seat recline and footrest settings, is independent, so you can easily accommodate each child’s preference (or nap time).

The seats are also removable, which allows you to use this stroller as a single with a massive shopping basket, or you can take the seats off to add an infant car seat adapter on one or both seats to create a travel system.

The fold is fairly easy for a large baby stroller. With both seats facing forward, lock the foot brake and close the canopies. Then, squeeze the triggers on the sides of the frame and step on the foot brake as you push the stroller forward until it folds. Pull tightly to engage that auto-lock latch.

The stroller stands by itself when folded. It would be nice to see a one-hand fold mechanism on this stroller, but this one feature is not a reason to bypass the Contours Options double stroller.
