Kolcraft Universal Express Rider Tandem Stroller Review and Giveaway!




Kolcraft is a company that most parents know and love. They have come to trust in their products and rightly so. They have been in the business of baby gear for over 50 years! What started out as a single man operation has now grown into a company with partnerships with big corporations such as Jeep, Seaseme Street, and Sealy. Their baby products are well made and you can find the Kolcraft name on everything from strollers, walkers, matresses, baby carriers and even potty seats to name a few!




I had the pleasure of reviewing Kolcraft's Universal Express Rider Stroller. This is a double stroller and has features such as stadium seating, cup holders for each child and even one hand-fold! This is a great little stroller with adequet storage underneath the seating, easy in and out front seat for older children and a fully reclinging back seat for your little one.

Folded stroller in the back of my van.

I found this stroller to be fairly light weight as far as double strollers go. After 8 1/2 years of using double strollers I have learned that they are just awkward and cumbersome. But this one is surprisingly easy to fold and load. One aspect that is a little bit of a drawback is that for this stroller to fit in the back of my 12 passenger van I have to remove the cup holder tray for the front seat, as well as the sun shade. While this isn't hard, I don't really like having all those "loose" pieces floating around in my van. But, they do tuck into the folded seat and stay fairly secure.


My children love this stroller. They say it is comfortable and my 4 year old still fits comfortably in the front seat. While we don't use strollers all the time as we tend to "wear" our children more than push them, I love that for trips to zoo or walks through the park I can pick my pace and not have to walk slow enough for her to keep up. And with a maximum weight of 35 pounds per child she is still within range (just barely, but this petite little thing still does fit).


The rear seat of this stroller has the ability to safely accept 20 different infant car seats. And with the oversized tires this stroller gives a nice smooth ride that will allow your baby to sleep while on the go. The all-terrain, shock absorbing stoller wheels make this a super smooth stroller to ride in (so my daughter says) and to push. We live on a chip and seal road and my other umbrella stoller was so hard to push through the loose gravel because of its smaller wheels. The Express Rider is much easier to push! And for that I am so grateful!


Overall, I am pleased with this stroller. I feel that for the price, features, and light-weight frame this is a great double stroller!

Here is a picture of the easy latch on the front seat.
Makes it much nicer for an "in and out" toddler.
