Buy “Contours Options Elite Tandem Double Stroller, Carbon Baby” Online
I just got this stroller, and love it! I have a 15 month old and 27 month old. When I was pregnant with our second, I researched many strollers that were best for two under two. This one always stood out because it was like the expensive brands in the look and how you can turn the seats around to multiple positions. We bought one in the blue color last year and loved it. (Can see it in the background of one pic) We’ve always had an SUV, so I can’t speak about how it fits in a car. ..All of the things that bothered me about last years version, they fixed in the 2016 model!!! #1 benefit is they made an aluminum frame which makes it feel like it’s half the weight!! SO much better; I could actually curl it like a weight. They also fixed the canopies, so as you can see the canopies of 2016 version go all the down almost, and actually stay. Last year’s would always pop back and wouldn’t cover my kids’ face. I pointed my daughter towards the sun and the canopy covered to her knees! They put a new brake system in, which is amazing. The bar on last years was a pain because I wear flip flops 24/7 so when pushing it up to unlock would hurt my foot. The brakes on 2016 version is step back to lock, step forward to unlock. The new brakes/back tires also has springs to make it a smoother ride. They moved the frame lock up higher so you no longer have to bend over to unlatch the frame to open it. One thing I don’t like is they made the latch black, when it used to stand out as red. But that’s minuscule. There is also a bar now under the back seat going across the basket. This could prevent you from being able to put a really big bag down there. It does have zippers on the side of the basket though, so you have easy access. It folds down so flat, and is easy to store in our SUV. If you have a newborn, they do not include the car seat adapter, but it can be bought separate. The seat weight limits are 40lb which is great! The seats, I would not think, would be long enough if your child is 4′ or taller. Overall, I’d give this stroller a 9/10. It is definitely the stroller you would want for two young kids!!I received this product at a discount or for free in exchange for my opinion. This review was 100% unbiased, and my own thoughts and opinions. Check it out!

Contours Options Elite Tandem Double Stroller, Carbon Review
I love the new contours stroller! Works great for my 2 year old and 10 week old. Rides smoothly and quietly. Canopy more than covers my toddler and provides plenty of shade. The new see thru mesh makes it easy to keep and eye on the rider in the front. Loads of space in storage basket! Tried the Graco duo tandem stroller but it was super heavy and clunky. It made an awful rattling sound all the way down the block! Contours stroller is super lightweight and easy to get in and out of my car which is an SUV. I compared my stroller to a friend who has the city select tandem and they are very similar in size. Plus the contours allows the front seat to face outwards with an infant car seat in the back. City select wasn’t able to do that. Only wish is that it came with a parent console solution. No where for my phone or keys and the cup holder is very small. Overall I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend it to anyone. -Read Reviews-
This is an amazing product. But too big when folded with seats. You need an SUV or a sedan for the stroller which might barely fit in the sedan.
