Searching for a double stroller can be an overwhelmingly daunting task — they’re heavy, bulky, and cost way too much money.
Except that isn’t always the case.
I spent the last year rallying local moms to help me test double strollers on all points of the spectrum — from lightweight travel options to full-service bells and whistles; from $260 budget finds to $1,000+ luxury rides. They were used on different age ranges, in all sorts of environments (city streets, grassy county fairs, tight-spaced stores, etc.), and put in and out of countless trunks. And as you might expect: There were a range of opinions, as well.

For many parents getting around with 2 is a challenge because they are short on space at their home or they prefer to not have to push a long or wide double stroller. With it’s compact fold and ‘stadium’ seating design, the Kinderwagon Hop stroller solves both these issues, while giving 2 kids a comfortable ride.

Choosing a stroller is one of the more daunting tasks that faces expectant parents. I know, I know. That’s ridiculous, but it’s true. I’ve seen women break down into sobs over choosing strollers because, more often than not, it’s just incredibly overwhelming. Now imagine you need to pick out a double.
Ideal for: Parents with serious space constraints and kids who are at least 6 months old.
Age/Weight range: Front seat is suitable from 6 months to 40 pounds; rear (top) seat is technically suitable from birth to 40 pounds.

One of the discussions I happen upon all the time among parents is how to choose a double stroller. For twins. For two children of different ages. For nannies who care for children of multiple families. “Which one is the best choice?” I’m often asked.
A stylish and unique lightweight double stroller perfect for the urban parent (or any parent for that matter) who needs the two-seater but lacks the space.
Double strollers come in three variations: side-by-side, tandem, and in-line. So when Kinderwagon contacted me about a “stadium-seating” style double stroller, I was VERY excited to get my hands on the Hop and give it a whirl. The verdict: I like it. A lot.
