I now officially own FOUR strollers.
I have 2 kids. Not four.
Finding a stroller that I like AND that my kids like has been quite the process. I have 2 single strollers and 2 double strollers.
When I found out I was going to need a double stroller I was dead set on getting the Maclaren Twin Triumph. It was everything I wanted. Sleek. Modern. Easy to push. Did I mention stylish? Folds up easy. Overall, I had wanted a “Maclaren” since the day I had P Man.
I wish I could say that it was the PERFECT stroller for my kids and that they absolutely loved it. Unfortunately, Bents could not stand it. He is the happiest baby on the planet, but the second he was put in the Maclaren….SCREAMING. AT.THE.TOP.OF.HIS.LUNGS.
He hated it. Every single second of it. I don’t have any idea why. He just did.
So I have recently decided to purchase a new double stroller. Because let’s be honest…I can’t possibly push 2 single strollers at once.
I decided on buying one that allows Bents to sit up a little straighter and to be able to have a tray with SNACKS! We all know how important snacks can be, heh.
I could have went crazy and spent in the upwards of $1,000 on a double stroller. Don’t think I wasn’t tempted. There are some really cute EXPENSIVE stollers out there. But, in all honesty the Baby Trend brand had everything I was looking for.
One of the things the Maclaren is missing is a snack and drink holder. Trust me, when I need just an extra 5 minutes in J.Crew…snacks become my savior. I NEED A SNACK TRAY! I can mulit-task, but I can not push a stroller and hand feed my kids their snacks one by one (and shop).
I love that the Baby Trend has snack trays and drink holders for both seats. It also converts to a sit-n-stand. It pushes easier than my Graco single stroller AND it has a big basket underneath (for al my shopping bags). 🙂
For the price of $179.99…I have been thoroughly impressed so far.
So now the question remains…should I sell the Maclaren? I have such a hard time parting with it. It’s like BRAND NEW. I only used a few times. And I WANTED it forever. But, I have a feeling that it may just hang on my garage wall for the remainder of my kids young life.
