Lightweight, umbrella, tandem, jogger, 3 wheeler – with so many stroller options, what is a parent or caregiver to do? Finding the perfect stroller isn’t easy, but it isn’t an impossible task either. Here at Kolcraft, we want to help answer your stroller questions and needs. In our Parent Resource Center, we provide a buying guide to help dispel the myths of stroller buying and instead concentrate on the 5 “must knows” of purchasing the right stroller for your needs and lifestyle.

One thing parents usually consider when buying a stroller are the options the stroller provides. How much storage does it have? Does the seat recline? Is there an option for reversible seats so my baby can face me? Are there cup holders? Does it turn easily? How does it fold? We have heard your important questions and are very excited to let everyone know about our new Contours Options 3 wheeler!

This new Contours stroller still has the “oh-so-loved” reversible seats which also hold most infant car seats, large storage basket, front swivel wheel, rear “never flat” wheels and easy trigger fold. The options don’t end here! We have added a parent tray with deeper, ventilated cup holders, a child cup holder and a height adjustable Sunrider canopy!



There are quite a few moms test driving our new Contours Options 3 wheeler. When they have their reviews up, we will let you know, but we also want to hear from you!

What features do you look for when buying a stroller? What burning questions do you have about finding the right stroller for your family? Our stroller team of engineers are here ready to answer your questions!

    I have the original version of this that came out back about 3 and half years ago. I ABSOLUTELY love this stroller. Having 4 kids I have gone through my fair share of strollers and nothing beats this. I am still cramming my 3 yr old in it, because I don’t want to part with it! I even asked the woman I babysit for if she was going to have another baby so I can justify holding on to it. So worth the money…I have never regretted buying this stroller.

    I am drooling over the kolcraft contours double stroller as I am expecting #2. I have read on many forums that it can be a little small for toddlers. I have a taller than average two year old and am concerned it might be a little small for her or she will out grow it quickly. Any suggestions or advice?

    Sara,
    Our Contours Options Tandem II has height adjustable canopies for taller children. :) You can view it here http://www.kolcraft.com/products/strollers/3/212 Also our Jeep Tandem stroller has a front seat with an “easy in & out bar” for toddlers. It folds VERY compactly so many people like that feature especially if they have smaller cars. You can view it here http://www.kolcraft.com/jeep/strollers/3/203 Please let us know if you have any other questions!
