One of the things Ms. Kaz and I discussed when discussing a new stroller when the baby comes is whether to get side-by-side (which I like), or front-and-back (Ms. Kaz).
I like the look of side-by-side, and I think it is easier to access children in.
Ms. Kaz thinks front-to-back would be easier to handle.
Basically, we don’t know who is right.
I did, however, get advice from someone who’s opinion on gear I trust. And he recommended the front-to-back Phil & Ted’s (Sport).
Personally, I think this is a little strange looking, in that the kid in back doesn’t have a whole lot to look at. But, it does seems very flexible, accomodating babies (including lying totally flat), toddler and baby, toddler only, and two toddlers. It even appears that the second seat is easily added and removed, if need be.
Hmm… I think maybe I am liking the Phil & Ted’s a little better. Although I still think their side-by-side (E3) is a little nicer looking. I need to find a place to check it out in person; see how it handles, how it looks, how it folds, etc.
Looking around on-line, they seem to get pretty decent reviews, too.
The Sport is available for around $400, plus $90 for the second seat add on.
Anyone have any opinion..?
[Kaz: p.s. thanks to everyone who mentioned the standing board option on many strollers. I will have to research and review these as part of my quest for the perfect stroller!]
