Strollers for Twins and a Singleton
Keep in mind that the stroller you choose (and the way you place your kiddos in the stroller) will ultimately depend on their birth order. Okay, here we go….
Joovy Big Caboose — Bargain Option
Price: ~ $499
Weight: 32 lbs
The Big Caboose by Joovy is car seat compatible (up to two car seats) and can have up to three regular seats. The two front seats can be used as is (for children 6+ months), or they can each accommodate car seats (car seat adapters are included).
The rear bench, which is great for kids 2.5+ years, can also turn into a stroller seat using the rear seat accessory. This is awesome for kids who are too young to ride on the bench. When used as a stroller seat, it can fit kids 6+ months. Please note: the rear seat accessory is not car seat compatible, so you cannot put three infants in this stroller.
This stroller would be perfect for an older single and a set of younger twins, a set of triplets over 6 months of age, or three kids of different ages, where at least one is over 6 months (to ride in the rear seat).
Note: this stroller is very long and not so easy to steer, especially in hilly terrain, but many twin parents who have an older child (2.5+) and have smooth sidewalks and flat terrain rely on it regularly.
Joovy Qool — Top Pick for Versatility
Weight: 30 lbs
If you have older triplets, or twins and an older single, you should definitely check out the Joovy Qool. This stroller gives you options — it can be used as a single, double (with purchase of additional seat and Front Adapter), or triple (with purchase of Bench Seat). Or, you can buy the entire thing as a double (~ $879) right from the start.
Valco Baby Tri-Mode Duo X— TOP PICK for twins and a singleton
Price: ~ $749 + Joey Seat ~ $130, sold separately
Weight: 34 lbs
What I love most about the Valco Baby Tri-Mode Duo X is that it gives you soooo many options, such as:
If your singleton is the older one…
In this scenario, you’d put your infant twins straight into the Valco Baby seats, because they recline to a fully flat position (like a pram). No need for car seats! Woohoo! For your older singleton (who must be 6 months or older, and have solid head and neck control), the Toddler Seat is perfect. Note that the weight limit on the Toddler Seat is 40 lbs. Once your older single child hits 4, it’s time for a riding board, called the Hitch Hiker Board— or they can just walk 😉
In fact, I purchased this stroller with the Toddler Seat when my twins were born, and my older daughter (3.5 at the time her sisters were born) immediately began calling it her “Queen Seat” (yeah, you know who The Boss is in my family… ). She loves it because she’s up so high, has an amazing view of everything around her, and she feels special…not to mention that when we’re out, she gets a ton of big smiles and comments from everyone we pass. (Seriously, every.single.person will comment when you’re out and about with this stroller!)
If your singleton is the younger one…
In this scenario, you’ll lay your singleton infant in one of the stroller seats (as mentioned above, the seats recline fully flat, so you won’t need a car seat), one of the older twins will ride in the other seat, and the other older twin will ride in the Toddler Seat (excuse me, Queen Seat).
If you have two littles and two bigs…
Not to worry. The smaller kiddos can ride in the two stroller seats, one of the bigger kids can ride in the Toddler Seat, and the 4th big kid can glide along on the “hitch hiker” (Valco’s glider board made for children older than age 2, sold separately). So, in essence, this stroller can hold up to four kids! Whoa… how awesome?! (Can you tell we like this one?)
The Valco Baby Twin-Tri Mode Duo X is not very commonly reviewed and the brand itself can be hard to find, which is why you may not find much info on the interwebs about this ahhhh-mazing stroller. But seriously, it’s been a lifesaver for me and my trio of tots.
Double Strollers with Riding Boards
Perfect for infant twins and an older singleton — or three kids under the ages of 5. You can get one of the double strollers recommended for twins, plus a riding board at the back. Here are some solid choices:
Baby Jogger City Select 2 with 2nd Seat + Glider Board — #2 Pick for twins and a single
Price: $659 for stroller +$229 for second seat + $129 for Glider Board
Weight: 37.8 lbs
The City Select 2 is a really awesome and versatile pick for parents of twins (and, with the addition of the glider board, also great for parents of three kiddos where at least one is about 2+ years of age).
Whether you want to use this stroller with car seats, bassinets, regular seats, or a combination of any of these… you can. It allows for over 24 different seating configurations, which means this stroller can truly grow with your children and your family’s needs.
UPPAbaby VISTA + Rumble Seat + Piggyback — #1 Tandem Pick for twins and an older single
People who have the Vista generally love it — even in double mode, it rides like a dream. The Vista can accommodate little ones from birth through the toddler years, and allows for multiple configurations to transport up to three kiddos.
For your infant twins, you can use the Vista with infant car seats or bassinets, and as they grow older, you can use it with two regular seats (one being the Rumble Seat). If you have an older child and younger twins, or older twins and a younger singleton, attach the Piggyback so all three of your kids can ride at once.
For triplets, there are a couple of triple tandem strollers, but to say they drive like a bus is an understatement. That – and they are so long, they probably won’t fit in your trunk. And yeah, they weigh about 60 lbs. You see these used for commercial applications at daycare centers and whatnot, we actually don’t recommend them for others. But here they are in case you’re interested —
Important to note: None of these triple tandem strollers recline flat, nor can they accommodate car seats.
Price: MSRP ~ $499
Weight: 34 lbs
Parents like that each seat on the Trio Triple Sort Tandem has its own canopy, has a 5-pt harness and can recline — but only a little.
Just don’t expect your kids to be able to peacefully nap in this thing. It does fit through standard doorways, however, and has large storage baskets for all your and babies’ necessities.
Children shouldn’t ride in this if they don’t have solid neck and torso control — usually about 6 months or older.
Weight: 30 lbs
According to Jen, one of our triplet mom readers, the Zoe Trio+ is all the rage in the triplet moms world right now. Jenna, another triplet mama, explains, “It’s lightweight, fits in most trunks (because it separates into two pieces) and is relatively inexpensive.”
Even better? It’s Disney-approved. Yay!
This stroller is loooong! But it fits three kiddos comfortably and easily, from birth up to 45 lbs (each child). This Italian-made stroller comes with the frame and individual Pop-Up stroller seats and hoods for each child.The seats all have an adjustable footrest, recline capabilities, and a loop on the hood to hang a toy.
This stroller accepts up to three Primo Viaggio infant car seats (sold separately) to create a 3-child travel system. The stroller seats click into the chassis (no adapters necessary) and can face forward or backwards. For a triple stroller, the Triplette rides and maneuvers well due to its soft ride wheels with ball bearings and suspension.
Four Tiny Humans
If for some reason or another, you have to transport four tiny humans around, check out these options. Again, these strollers tend to be better suited for daycare centers and whatnot due to their giant size and weight.
Price: ~ $599
Weight: 67 lbs
Not bad for a 4-seater: ergonomic handlebar, shock-absorbing, rubberized foam wheels, fairly good canopy protection, and SafeBrake system engages when handle is released. Reviewers seem to like this stroller, saying it’s well made and a lifesaver with four kiddos.
Price: ~ $679
Weight: 31 lbs
This is just like the Trio+, but can hold 4 kiddos (or can downsize to a double stroller and hold just two… ). This quad stroller is amazing! It only weighs 31 lbs (for a QUAD, people!!), folds easily and is Disney-size approved. The Tribe+ can hold up to 45 lbs per seat. Love this stroller.
Best Wagons for 3-4 Kids
What’s that you say? None of these strollers fulfill your large family’s needs? I get it. I totally do, because it’s not just the kids… it’s all the stuff our kids come with, plus the picnic lunch you were hoping to pack… oh, and don’t forget the picnic blanket and frisbees too.
With wagons growing in popularity – it seems as if all the major stroller companies are starting to make them – we think they could be one of the very best options for families of 3+ kids! Here are our top picks, in order of highest to lowest price.
Age-wise, these larger 3-4 kid wagons don’t come with infant seat adapters, so they must be used for babies 6+ months. In addition, none of these stroller wagons are Disney-size approved. Boo.
WonderFold Wagon ~ $595
- Wagon Weight: 50 lbs (With seats installed)
- Wagon Weight Capacity: 300 lbs
Check out the Wonderfold Wagon (otherwise known as the W4 Stroller Wagon), which can accommodate up to four passengers ages 6+ months to 66 lbs per set of seats (the W4 has two sets of seats). In total, the W4 can hold up to 300 lbs (that includes kiddos + whatever other gear you need to bring with you).
This wagon — which is like a hybrid of the best parts of both a stroller and a wagon — has so many cool features. Kiddos can get in the wagon by crawling through the zippered front door! How fun is that?!
The side panels are made of mesh, which allows for increased airflow, and the seatbacks are high and face-to-face, so passengers can see and play — and hopefully not fight! — with each other as they ride. The wagon also comes with a reversible, removable canopy that offers UV protection.
It’s easily transportable too, which is awesome. The W4 folds and unfolds in one step (though the seats do need to be removed before folding), and will fit in the back of most car trunks.
Like a stroller, the W4 has a one-step foot braking system, with 8″ front wheels (with bearings) and 9.5″ rear wheels and suspension. The tires are made of durable polyurethane, and will never need to be pumped or reinflated. In other words, your children aren’t going to be bouncing all over the place as you pull them around in this wagon… they’ll get a nice, smooth ride (good for when they’re snoozing).
The seats, which are removable, are fully equipped with 5-pt-harness for added safety and security. The seat fabric is also removable for easy cleaning.
Bonus: the W4 offers lots of great storage. It comes with a detachable rear-facing basket that can fit things like lunch boxes, water bottles, a small bag, etc. There are also pockets on each side of the stroller for smaller items such as water bottles, toys, diapers, wipes, keys, phones, etc.
If you have babies, you can remove the seats to use it as a bassinet (lay your baby — or babies — directly on the bottom).
One downfall, however, is that the kids’ snack tray is not included. You can buy it separately here for $49, but for the high price tag, we think it should come standard with the W4. Note that a snack tray IS included with both the Keenz XC+ 7S+ stroller wagons. In addition, unlike the 4-seater Keenz stroller wagons which can be pushed or pulled, the W4 can only be pulled (unless you purchase the Wonderfold X4 Quad Push & Pull Stroller).
Bottom Line — Honestly, if this stroller had been around when my twins were babies, I would have gotten it in a heartbeat! It’s versatile, rides well, fits up to four kids plus storage… It’s the perfect blend of stroller, nap space and wagon!
- Wagon Weight: 51 lbs
- Wagon Weight Capacity: 300 lbs
The Keenz 7S+ 4-Seater Stroller Wagon is an amazing all-terrain pick for active families who like to spend time on-the-go – from picnicking, playing at the beach or park, going to festivals, sporting events, and more, this stroller wagon is a solid choice.
Meant for kids from 12 months up to 55 lbs, the 7S+ 4-Seater has 5-point safety harnesses for each child, and can hold a lot – it has a total weight limit of 300 lbs and loads of storage room (more on that in a minute).
It comes equipped with built-in shades that offer solid protection from the sun (and other elements), as well as reduce noise and offer a quiet (and private) place for diaper changes, nap/rest times, etc.
There’s also an amazing snack and activity tray, as well as a deep footwell so children can sit comfortably.
You can choose to push the 7S+ like a stroller, or pull it like a wagon. It’s so nice to have this option – it makes a huge difference when you’re rolling over rougher terrain and carrying a lot of kids and/or cargo!
Another big bonus is all the storage you get with the Keenz 7S+: a cooler and storage basket, ventilated shoe storage (under the cooler), a removable storage bin, 4 storage pockets inside the wagon for kids’ toys, snacks, etc., and two outer side pockets with zippers for parents to tuck away smaller items such as keys, phones, wipes, and more.
The Keenz 7S+ 4-Seater also folds down for storage or transport.
Bottom Line: We think this is an awesome stroller wagon for on-the-go families who need to transport a lot of “stuff” along with their kids; we love all the storage the 7S+ offers! The all-terrain wheels ensure you’ll be able to push or pull it easily over all kinds of ground, and the canopy and shade panels are super helpful for those long days in the sun.
- Wagon Weight: 40 lbs
- Wagon Weight Capacity: 165 lbs
Big news: BOB (yes, of the beloved BOB running stroller fame… ) recently entered the stroller wagon game with this brand new, rugged 3-seater wagon. We’re totally here for it!
With its Large XtraMile all-terrain wheels & SmoothShox suspension for smooth and comfortable riding, the Renegade was made for adventurous families who love to spend time outdoors and on-the-move. But, something important to note, the Renegade is NOT intended for running; this is a walking stroller wagon only.
The Renegade, which is meant for kids who have solid head and neck control (they gain this somewhere between 6 months to a year) can carry 165 lbs of “stuff” (kids + everything else), and holds about 55 lbs per seat. The maximum child height for the Renegade is 44 inches tall.
The Renegade has two separately operated canopies, which, like on a stroller, is nice for when each child wants more or less shade (though, since this wagon holds three kids, at least two of them will have to agree on how much shade – this would definitely pose an issue with my trio who will fight over… anything!). Speaking of having three kids, the seating configuration is that one child sits on one side, while two sit next to each other. If you have bigger/older kids, keep this in mind if you’re thinking about purchasing the Renegade – maybe try it out first before you purchase.
We love that you can open and close this wagon with one-hand and only three steps (pretty solid for a stroller wagon)! Like the others, you can push or pull it depending on your preference, and the foot brake makes it easy to stop quickly and smoothly.
The Renegade comes with a child snack tray, two adult cup holders and side mesh pockets for storing smaller items.
To read more about the BOB Renegade, check out our roundup of the best kids’ wagons.
Bottom Line: The Renegade will handle well over all types of terrain, and is incredibly versatile, durable and functional. If your kids are older/bigger, however, note the seating configuration (two on one side and one on the other) and the 44 inch height limit. Overall, we think this is a solid all-terrain and fully functional stroller wagon pick!
Keenz XC+ 4 Passenger ~ $849
- Weight Capacity: 326 lbs (55 lbs per seat)
- Wagon Weight: 54 lbs
Earlier, we discussed the Keenz 7S+ 4 Passenger stroller wagon, and while it is quite similar to the XC+, there are some key differences between the two stroller wagons that are definitely worth mentioning. While the Keenz 7S+ is only suitable for kids 12 months and up, the XC+ can be used for children who are 6 months and older. In fact, in many ways, the XC+ is better suited for kids who are smaller and younger.
For instance, the seating area in the XC+ is not as wide or deep as it is in the 7S+, which means it’s best for shorter, smaller kids.
The snack tray is also a bit narrower on the XC+ than the 7S+, which makes sense since it’s a narrower stroller wagon in general.
That said, the XC+ can carry up to 326 lbs of stuff, and hold 55 lbs per seat. And, like the 7S+, each seat has a 5-point safety harness to keep kids secure while riding.
The seats on the XC+ are removable, which make the seating configurations a bit more versatile than on the 7S+. For instance, if your child is too large for the seat on the XC+, simply remove it and they can sit on the floor of the stroller wagon instead. This works because it has a different footwell than the 7S+.
While the wheels on the XC+ are all-terrain, they are a bit smaller than the wheels on the 7S+ (the front wheels on the XC+ are 2.5 inches, while the wheels on the 7S+ are 3 inches; both stroller wagons’ back wheels are 14 inches). Therefore, Keenz recommends the XC+ for more even-terrain outings, such as to the zoo, the park, shopping malls, walks around the neighborhood, etc.
The XC+ comes with a lot of nice features, such as: removable, reclining cushioned seats (though, note, they don’t recline very far… ); the same canopy system as the 7S+, which offers UV protection, blackout panels and mesh sides for better airflow; dual leather handlebars, a snack tray, and plenty of storage.
Note that while both the XC+ and 7S+ come with a cooler bag, the XC+’s is not insulated like the 7S+’s.
Bottom Line: The Keenz XC+ 4-Passenger Stroller Wagon is a great choice for families with 3+ kids who have smaller, younger children. It offers many of the same features as the Keenz 7S+, but is better suited to littler kids, and, while it is all-terrain, doesn’t handle quite as well over rough ground as the 7S+ does.
Happy strolling all you rockstar mamas of three (or more) kiddos! Let me just say, you have my utmost respect and admiration! Oh, if you’ve found an option for your duo, trio, quads (or more!) that wasn’t listed here, let us know. All of us PoMs (parents of multiples) would love to hear your strolling solutions.
God bless moms of multiples!!
