Contours Options II Tandem Stroller Review and Giveaway!

*THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED*

When I was pregnant with my baby boy I knew that we would be needing a double stroller. I wanted a stroller that was versatile, offered plenty of storage, easy to push and maneuver and would not take up the entire trunk of our van. I was honored to have the opportunity once again to work with Kolcraft on a review. I was sent their new and improved version of the Contours Options Tandem Stroller!

Out for a walk with Dad, enjoying the beautiful spring weather.


The Contours Options Tandem Stroller has met and exceeded what I was hoping for in a double stroller. With 6 different seating options, plenty of storage space, several cup holders (4 total), toddler step-in steps on both sides, removable iPod dok with speaker, easy trigger fold, upright storage (leaving ample space for other things in the back of my van), and most importantly...the smoothest ride ever! As with any tandem stroller this is large and long, but I am amazed at how well it turns even in narrow store isles. The front wheels swivel in a complete circle making turns smooth and effortless.

Facing each other

Back to back

Another feature I love is the seating. You want both babies facing you? No problem! You want them facing each other? Done! You want them both facing outward? It's easy! Do you have a new baby and want to snap the car seat to the stroller? This can be done too! (A car seat attachment for an infant seat is included with this stroller, additional car seat attachment is sold separately to accommodate twins.) The Tandems seats are easily removed with the press of two buttons. It is very simple to change the seating to what you like.


The seats on this stroller have a ton of cool features...
  • Height adjustable 5-point harness for safety and padded sleeves for comfort.
  • Both seats recline, great for sleeping babies!
  • Adjustable foot rests (I like having the foot rest up for my baby and down for my toddler who needs more room to stretch.)
  • Infant head rest protects newborn's head.
  • Adjustable canopy can be raised or lowered to the height of your baby.
  • Pockets on each canopy to hold iPod Dok.
  • Removable front bar for added safety.
These are just the bonuses of the seating!! You will also love the wide, soft grip handle (great for hanging diaper bag), deep over sized cup holders, storage compartment for your keys and sunglasses, and two soft grip handles for older children to hold on to (this is great for my 8 year old who has a hard time keeping pace with the rest of the family).

If you too are looking for a quality double stroller with a ton of great features, you will not be disappointed with the Contours Options Tandem Stroller!!
