Strollers for twins or two children of various ages can be essential for moving around the community with ease. Options include seating side-by-side or tandem (one in front of the other). The side-by-side design could have a difficult time fitting through doorways, while the tandem can be difficult to maneuver due to the length. Consider options for separate reclining of both seats, as well as how you want to position each child based on age (laying flat, one seated higher than the other, one facing the parent while pushing, one child standing, etc). These will inherently be bulky and harder to fold/store due to the addition of an extra components.
Note: In our research we found that it may be difficult for some individuals with a disability to use strollers easily. Features that require fine motor strength/control (i.e., buckles, levers, handles, push buttons) and tasks that use trunk control/balance (i.e., pushing stroller, moving baby in/out) are not conducive to traditional stroller design. There is a need for more strollers in the mass market to be user friendly for a variety of people.
Consumer reports lists a variety of considerations for purchasing a stroller; however, we suggest that you consider your own needs and abilities to determine what’s best for you. Hopefully some of theses suggestions are examples from which you can build upon. Contact us if you have found another example that works well for you.
