Best Cheap Double Strollers
by Editors of Cheapism.com

The reviews are comparative and include pros and cons, and they explain why these strollers match up to higher-end models.

by Contributors to Amazon.com
Our AssessmentAmazon.com lists a huge selection of double strollers, but the site is most useful once you have a stroller in mind. Reviews tend to be detailed and well thought out, listing both pros and cons of various strollers. Some strollers have hundreds of reviews, whole some only have a handful. The reviews have to be considered carefully -- especially when it comes to complaints. Strollers are often downgraded because of factors having nothing to do with the stroller, such as shipping issues. Amazon.com is a particularly good resource for determining how a stroller holds up over the long term.
Double & Triple Strollers
by Contributors to ToysRUs.com
Our AssessmentBabies "R" Us sells a number of "exclusive" stroller models that feature special fabrics but are otherwise no different than the same strollers available at other retailers. The hundreds of strollers they sell have a decent number of reviews, and they tend to be newer than some consumer-review sites, so it's a great site for recent experiences with strollers that may be updates from older models. Like most baby-product sites, reviewers tend to be honest and thorough.

by Robin Elise Weiss, LCCE
Our AssessmentThis article by About.com's pregnancy guide, Robin Elise Weiss, LCCE, rounds up nine top double strollers, explaining in tiny captions why each is a good pick. Each stroller is pictured, and you can click for more info and places to buy. But the list is a little confusing. Sometimes it mentions a specific stroller model; other times it links to a more general category, like "sit and stand strollers" or "Chicco lightweight double stroller." While many of the models are still in existence, some appear to have been discontinued, indicating that this might be an older list.
