Reviewers say the Graco DuoGlider double stroller is the best budget tandem stroller. Kids like the DuoGlider LX's "stadium seating," which lets the rear passenger sit a little higher. The Graco DuoGlider LX weighs 30 pounds, but most parents say it handles and folds pretty well. The DuoGlider LX accepts two Graco infant car seats. We found better reviews for some double strollers, but at considerably higher prices. The Graco Quattro Tour Duo (*Est. $250) adds some extra features, but also nearly 10 extra pounds. If you need to accommodate only one infant seat and one older child, the convertible phil&teds Explorer (*Est. $480 plus $90 doubles kit) has an optional second seat and three wheels that can handle all terrain.
The only site to offer a professional review of the Graco DuoGlider double stroller is Baby-Gaga.com, whose editors base performance ratings on testing and interviews with parents. Also, dozens of parents register their experiences with this model on Amazon.com, Viewpoints.com, Epinions.com and LilaGuide.com.

Strollers reviewed at Baby-Gaga.com are rated (based on testing and feedback from owners) in several performance areas and then given an overall score. The Graco DuoGlider stroller's most attractive features include its low price tag, removable and machine-washable fabric, and easy-to-use harness system. Owners are less enthusiastic about the Graco DuoGlider's turning ability when kids get bigger.

"Baby Bargains" is an excellent baby gear book by parents and consumer advocates Denise and Alan Fields. Their coverage of the Graco DuoGlider stroller is limited, but the authors go into greater detail about Graco's strollers in general.
