stroller recommendations please

OK I have a 2 year old who weighs 32lbs and a 6 month old that weighs 18lbs. I need a double stroller that can be used in the mall. I want something that is fairly easy to steer and comfortable for the kiddos. Also cant have a really low weight limit because my 2 year old is a big boy lol. Price is not really the issue if i find something i love. thanks everyone

Phil and Ted's E3. One child can sit in front. The other sits below with an attachment.

Sure you might be able to find it somewhere cheaper (maybe even craigslist.com)

Re: stroller recommendations please

Well I have 2 that I love

I have the BOB revolution Duellie for my at home walks and stuff, it is great for the park and stuff, but a bit big to tote in and out of the car. Does fit through door ways though

For the mall and in my car I have the Maclaren Rally Double. I love it too Folds up really small, and light yet fits both kids comfortable, and has 2 baskets and some pockets for all my crap

and I am 5'8 and dh is 6'3 and neither of us has trouble with the height of these. I hate the small umbrella strollers, cause I have to lean over for them

HTH Good luck

The Graco DuoGlide that I have is much lighter than the older models. I also found that the Kolcraft one (Kmart sells it) is super light and seemed really easy to steer.

Re: stroller recommendations please

I like my Maclaren Twin Traveller, but I got it off Craigslist. My 4 year old is lazy, so I need a seat for him still

Re: stroller recommendations please

I was looking at this one, I'm looking at twin strollers for a 2yo and new baby.
http://www.specialtybaby.com/ma20twrastin.html
Kyliesmom mentioned it. So does it recline down for a newborn?
It doesn't say.
Free shipping and onsale I have to keep this site in mind.

I found it for $199. I like it in red at the bottom.

That is the exact one I have for my kids. My dd likes the flowers and ds uses the stripes. But they are both reversible. They recline independantly

I have used both of my strollers since he was a nb I did use a headrest thingy in the jogger though
