Re: Kolcraft Contour tandem stroller

I have one and it is great! My only issue is that it is a little heavy and make sure to put the heavier child in the front or it can be a beast to steer. Otherwise it is great! My girls love being able to face each other and I love that I can put the baby carrier in it no problem!

Do you find it a huge pitb to have to remove the seats before putting it up? That was the only thing that detoured me from it.

I have one and love it. It is big and heavy, but the basket is huge and it has lots of options. My only issue is no cup holders for the kids, but that hasn't been a big deal. We've had ours for over 2 years and it still looks new. And it hasn't been too bad to take the front seat off to fold it.

I don't mind having to take the seat off since there is so much room in the basket and so many other great options. We have actually talked about replacing it with another since we have worn ours out so bad!

Re: Kolcraft Contour tandem stroller

I was thinking of just getting a graco duoglider lx, since it folds up all nice with one hand. I have like zero patience when it comes to 'things' and I think I'd have a hissy fit in the parking lot trying to get the seats off, the cart in the back etc. But maybe I'm just weird!

Re: Kolcraft Contour tandem stroller

I have one and love it! I have four children and I have been through many double strollers and this is finally one I love. I have every other Graco product in my house but I hate their double strollers! They are impossible to push. I highly recommend this double stroller! Getting the seats off is really not a problem and takes no time at all

LOL I am actually looking at getting the same kind of stroller... I also spotted one used. Good to hear some feedback.

Well, the stroller got sold before I got to see it! I was kind of mad, so I'm going to look at a graco quattro duo. It looks brand new from the pics. It's not the first choice, but it's brand new for half the price. My friend has one and she says she likes it, so well see!

Re: Kolcraft Contour tandem stroller

For anyone that has access to a military base and can't find a good used one....they NEX and BAX here in Hampton Roads area of VA have the Kolcraft Contour Tandem on sale for 150. It actually makes it about 100 dollars cheaper than any of the Graco ones we have looked at. Also, if my memory serves me, Burlington Coat Factory Baby Depot has one for a similar price. I love the idea that I can turn the new baby around to face me and my toddler can still see everything in the front! We are really considering this one )
