Please tell me there is a stroller out there for 80+lbs of kiddos!!!
 
Okay i am desperate - I just tried (succeeded but BARELY) to push my 3 children in my current stroller three blocks to the park and it was HORRIBLY difficult. I mean - my entire arms were burning from the effort difficult. I have a Sit N' Stand, but adding the third to the picture is obviously not going to work.....:banghead::banghead::banghead:

I have no local stores that carry anything other than graco's or evenflo's (UGH!!) so all of my shopping is online....

Is there a stroller that can handle 80+ lbs of kiddos (not one child, but their combined weights! LOL) and still be "fairly" easy to push?

:popcorn: I also have the babytrend sit and stand and with just 2 kids in it, i have a hard time controlling it. my kids are 35# and 28#, it shouldn't be this hard.

The BOB would probably handle two. But what about oldest walking, youngest in backpack, and middle in stroller? That would be so much easier!

Yes, typically i do make my 4yr old walk.... :giggle: But he was wearing new sandals today and wore blisters on the insides of his feet, so he HAD to ride.... i was just curious if any stroller out there was capable of carrying that much weight.... Day to day i would need to push about 50lbs total of kiddos. :thumbsup:

Why don't you just get a wagon? I use a big red wagon for DC walks. We can haul 6 40lb toddlers, or fewer toddlers with a baby in a basket carrier carseat.
Get one that can be flat bottomed or flip up to make 2 facing in seats for older kids.

We have this one but an older model(7 years old now!)

Or this one is plastic but does the same thing with being flat or flip up seats.

This is what I was going to suggest. We have the one in the last link along with the removable radio flyer wagon sun canopy. I'd put the oldest two in the wagon, along with any bags, snacks or cups and wear the youngest :goodvibes: I'd rather pull 80+ lbs than push it, no matter what type of stroller its in!

Amen to that, sister! Pulling 240 lbs of toddlers is way easier on huge pneumatic rubber tires as opposed to a stroller. Of course I don't pull them the whole way but at some point, they all take a pit stop every now & then. I would never ever trade in my wagon for anything else! We even use it with the sides removed for dirt & sand & hauling of landscaping material.
Someone makes a super cool one that folds & is aluminum. It is supposed to replace the stroller in your trunk. Let me see if I can find it.
