Monkey Girl is now 2 ½ and able to walk herself most everywhere we go. However, there are still times when we are doing a lot of walking or where it is just easier to have her in a stroller. With baby boy coming in February we will need a double stroller to accommodate both of them. I have tried side-by-side double strollers but they can be quite cumbersome and hard to maneuver. I was so excited when I was given the chance to try out the Contours Options LT Tandem Stroller.
The Contours Options LT Tandem Stroller is a lightweight tandem stroller with a ton of options (bet you couldn’t guess that from the name!). It is lighter than most tandems weighing only 33 1/2 lbs with the seats ON! We all know how important it is not to have to lug around a big and HEAVY stroller.
This stroller has six different seating options: children can both face you, face each other, face forward, sit back to back, or you can use the stroller with just the front seat (giving you extra storage space in the back), or use with some of the most popular infant car seats.
Monkey Girl thought it was soooo cool that she would be able to face her brother in the stroller. We were both impressed that you could have both seats reclined while facing each other.
She also thought it was really cool that she could see her brother (kind of) when they were both facing me).
One of my favorite Contours Options feature is that it comes with the infant seat adapter when most strollers make you buy one separately. This stroller accommodates many infant car seats, including select models from Britax®, Chicco®, Combi®, Cosco®, Evenflo®, Graco®, Maxi-Cosi®, Peg Perego®, Safety First®
The seats are super simple to re-position, just push the buttons on both sides of the stroller and the seat pulls straight up and out… flip it around and set it back down. I was very impressed by how well the stroller maneuvers. It is larger than a regular stroller, and the only other experience I have had was with a side-by-side double stroller, so I assumed it would be hard to move around, but it’s not at all!
My husband was happy to see just how compact it folds up. If both seats are facing forward it folds flat easily with both seats on! When I folded it up, one seat had been facing backwards so I just took it off and folded it in with the stroller and it still worked great.
Some other great features of this stroller include:
*8″ front wheels and 10″ back wheels that will never go flat.
*Front-wheel suspension for a super smooth ride and easy maneuverability.
*Holds children up to 40 lb each (80 lb total).
*Seats have canopies, reclining seats, adjustable foot rests, and a napper bar that easily rotates and lifts out for removal.
*5-point safety harness on both seats.
*Cup-holder for the parent – it’s flexible to fit larger cups, too.
Overall the Contours Options LT Tandem Stroller would be a great addition to any household or family. It certainly will make running your errands easier! You get multiple strollers for the price of ONE! What’s better than that? You can purchase this stroller online for $269.99 ~ it would be a great holiday present for anyone with two kids or who is expecting a second soon!
