Alternatives To Double Strollers: Sit And Stand Strollers
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

So, you have two small children. The older one has just migrated from the stroller to fully walking and your baby has now taken the seat in the stroller. But there is a catch. The toddler gets tired easily, particularly on longer walks, and there is now nowhere for him to sit. You could take a double stroller, either a side by side stroller (which is clunky and hard to fit through normal doorways) or the tandem stroller (which is hard to steer). Thankfully there is now another option: the Sit and Stand stroller.

Sit and Stand strollers are a relatively new invention in the wheeled children’s good market. They are a half-way stroller that is primarily aimed at families with children of infant and toddler age and who don’t want the expense and hassle of a double or tandem stroller. Whilst your baby can enjoy a ride in the front seat your toddler has the independence of walking by the stroller. If they get tired they can either stand on the back of the stroller, or sit in the bench at the back. Either way, both toddler and parent don’t have to worry about finding somewhere to rest for the toddler.

There are many different types of Sit and Stand strollers on the market. Some of the basic models are not as expensive but don’t have some of the additional flexibility of the more expensive models. If you want full flexibility with your Sit and Stand stroller there are models available that function as a full tandem stroller which will then allow you to remove the rear seat for use with older children.

Sit and Stand strollers are generally more affordable than double and tandem strollers because you get more use out of them. Sit and Stand strollers can carry children up to around five years old. Compared to standard double and tandem strollers, which can usually only carry children up to three or four years old; you get a lot longer use out of your stroller.

Maneuverability is another key feature for families looking for strollers. Maneuvering double and tandem strollers is a lot harder than a single stroller due to the additional weight. Tandem strollers are more prone to maneuverability issues because the weight is concentrated towards the front and away from the centre of gravity. Sit and Stand strollers have the front seat closer to the parent than bigger tandem strollers. This makes them a lot easier to steer.

Considering the size of strollers is an important factor for parents looking to purchase strollers. Usually double and tandem strollers are too big to fit in a lot of car trunks. Sit and Stand strollers are more compact than scores of double and tandem strollers and many will fit in the back of a car with little aggravation.

Whilst double strollers suite families with children and babies of the same age, they are not ideal for families where a toddler is ready for more independence. The option of a bench to sit or stand on allows the toddler greater independence. Sit and Stand strollers are also smaller, lighter and easier to manage that other double strollers, and they cater for children from birth up to 5 years making them great value for money.
