The Baby Trend Snap-N-Go Double (*Est. $100) is one of the more unconventionally designed strollers on the market. It is essentially a double stroller frame, designed to accommodate two infant carriers or car seats. This allows parents to transport children from the car to the stroller without waking or disturbing them, making it ideal for parents with newborn twins. Reviewers do note that babies as young as 7 months become cramped in the stroller because it lacks legroom. Other reviews also note that the stroller is not made for larger children and that parents looking for longevity over convenience should look elsewhere. The stroller earns high marks for plentiful storage, though some reviews note that the storage basket can be difficult to access once the baby carriers are snapped into place. The Baby Trend Snap N Go receives praise for its durable, yet light frame. There are mixed reviews when it comes to the maneuverability of the stroller and its compatibility with certain car seats and infant carriers. Although the stroller base works with a wide variety of carriers, some fit only by removing several bars on the stroller, which made some parents say they felt uncomfortable. Additionally, some reviewers say the stroller can be cumbersome in tight spaces when loaded with two carriers.
