Double Your Fun with a Pure and Honest Kids Double Stroller!


When you have multiples or young children very close in age, purchasing a double stroller is one of the most important purchases you will make. The stroller helps you travel to and fro everywhere you go for the first few years of your child’s life, so you want to make sure you get the stroller that meets all your needs. This choice becomes a bit more complicated when you're using the stroller for more than one child.

Pure and Honest Kids has an excellent selection of double strollers. Check them out here! Here are some tips on how to find the perfect double stroller for your family.

The best stroller is the one that fits your lifestyle, is a style you like, and also fits your budget. Safety and comfort are essential, and the accessories and options that come with double strollers are not to be ignored.

Think about your lifestyle. Are you going to be jogging with your babies? Or mostly running errands? Will you be using the stroller mostly in a city setting, walking on sidewalks in congested areas, or do you live close to the coast or mountains and plan on walking on uneven terrain often? The best double stroller will allow you to do all the activities you like to do, ensuring you can take your babies wherever you need to go. When you figure out your lifestyle and the activities you will mostly use your stroller for, you can then narrow the options considerably.
Safety is always the number one concern of parents when shopping for something as important as a stroller. With a double stroller, you want to ensure both children are full protected, and have individual safety features, such as padding and reliable restraint systems, such as a five-point harness. Other safety features to consider are a secondary locking mechanism on the frame of the stroller to ensure that the stroller cannot fold up while in use, rear-wheel breaks, tip-resistant frame, and some type of canopy to protect the baby from sun and inclement weather.
You also have to think about the size of the stroller. Will it fit into your car? How much does it weigh and can you comfortably transport it in and out of your car? These are all important things to consider when buying a double stroller. Double strollers are considerably larger than a single stroller and you do not want to purchase one that is too cumbersome or heavy for you to enjoy using.
Speaking of cumbersome, does the stroller fold and unfold easily? You will be juggling two young children at once, while folding and unfolding your stroller. It is essential to find a stroller that has an easy-to-use mechanism to open and close your stroller frame.

Although children are small, they require a lot of “stuff” to travel around town. Make sure you look for a stroller with some storage areas. A generously-sized storage basket on the bottom of a double stroller is a wonderful feature to consider, and will enable you to carry all the items both your children need.

What accessories on your stroller will make your life easier? Strollers have so many options today, including snack trays, cup holders, toy bars, IPod hookups, and so much more. Do some research and figure out what accessories you want on your double stroller.

Because your double stroller will be such a large purchase, make sure you choose a stroller that is well made with quality materials. The metal or aluminum frame of the stroller should be strong and stable. Also look for welded seams, tightly stitched seat covers and finished edges. Just remember, the best double stroller is the one that fits your lifestyle, is safe and comfortable, and fits within your budget. If you do a bit of research, you are sure to be happy with your double stroller purchase.
