Contours Options LT Tandem Stroller Wins a 2012 NAPPA Award


We are excited to announce that the newest member of the Contours family, the Options LT tandem stroller has been named a 2012 National Parenting Publications Award (NAPPA) Gold winner. The stroller was recognized for being more compact and lightweight than other tandem stroller options. Plus, Contours provides parents the ability to customize the seating options.

Because it folds so easily with both seats on, parents will spend less time folding their stroller and more time with their children. Building upon the positive reviews of the Options line of strollers, the Contours Options LT tandem features our trademark reversible seats, a large storage basket and the ability to fit most infant car seats. For on-the-go parents looking for a customizable tandem stroller, the Contours Options LT provides a lightweight solution and is available in two colors – Crimson Red & Valencia Gold.

NAPPA’s independent expert judges and parent testers evaluated hundreds of submissions for their innovation, safety, quality and the degree to which they make parenting easier. After weeks of stringent testing, 25 products were selected to receive the esteemed Gold Award while 41 received Silver and 30 were chosen as Honors.

“Parenting can be challenging and overwhelming with all the distractions that we face today,” says Julie Kertes, NAPPA General Manager. “Our winner list cuts through the clutter and hones in on only the best baby gadgets, gear and tools so that parents can make smart choices for their families.”

    My wife and I received this stroller for free from the company to try and review, and to be honest I thought it was going to be just some cheap-o stroller with no real benefits. WRONG! I absolutely love this stroller. Setup was relatively easy and the instructions were easy to follow. After it was set up I was pretty amazed at the form and function of it. I read a review of the model before this one and it said that it was only collapsible with one seat attached, but this one folds up with both of them. This stroller is amazing, makes tight turns, lightweight, and very versatile with the way the seats can be turned a variety of ways. Highly recommend this product if you have twins or even two kids of different ages.

    Thank you! We are so glad you like your stroller! Thanks for being a fan.

    How did you get a “FREE” stroller to review it for the company? I have infant twins and a 3 year old and we really need a stroller as soon as possible! I would love a free stroller to review it for the company and I can post it on my blog afterwards as well.
    Please email me at candiceh78@yahoo.ca

    thanks in advance,
    Candice

    Where can I buy this stroller? I have tried every website that is attached to this website, as your online retailers and none of them have it. Is it in stores yet?

  6. samantha says:

    Where can I purchase this stroller? I was first going to buy the Options II, but couldn’t find that available anywhere, so I decided to upgrade to the newer model. However, once again, I can’t find this product anywhere either! My husband and I really would like the valencia gold pattern, but will even accept the crimson red. We cannot find it anywhere!!! Found the Option I model at a store near us, but we are set on the LT. Thank you!

  7. MichelleH says:

    There is a new model for the Contours LT tandem stroller coming out soon on Amazon.com The new model number is ZT014. Thank you

  8. Christine says:

    When does the new Contours LT Tandem stroller come out? Can I only buy it on Amazon?

  9. Tiffany says:

    This stroller looks amazing! Is it selling in green? Also, is it possible to recline both seats at the same time? From the videos, it looks like only one can comfortably recline at a time.

    Thanks!

  10. Debra Sluis says:

    oh boy I WANT this stroller… Not only just want but I really NEED it.

  11. ColleenF says:

    Thanks for all of the feedback.

    Tiffany: We have shipped the Hudson Green to Buy Buy Baby stores. Let us know if you have other questions!

  12. Tiffany says:

    Thanks Colleen! What about the reclining is it possible to recline both seats at the same time?

  13. Tiffany says:

    Colleen, I checked the buy buy baby website, and it is not there…

  14. ColleenF says:

    Hi Tiffany, Thanks for the question. I just checked with our engineers and both seats on the Contours Options LT recline to three positions. You can put them both reclined at the same time. Thanks for the follow up question and I am sorry I missed it this morning.

    Also, Kolcraft has shipped the Contours Options LT to BuyBuyBaby. If you want me to email you an update, once it is posted on their site, please send your contact information to marketing@kolcraft.com and I will let you know.

    Thanks!

  17. NLD says:

    Do you still have the grey/orange combo? Will you be getting other colors?

  18. MichelleH says:

    NLD – In the tandem we have the red/black and the Valenica (yellow) color. Thank you!

  19. MichelleH says:

    NLD – Also Buy Buy Baby will have it in Hudson (green color)

  20. Cynthia says:

    Are there any pictures of the stroller with both seats fully reclined? If not then can someone take pictures and send them to me? I have a baby that just turned one and am expecting another soon, so I’ll have two little ones and the reclining feather is big to me.

    Hi.. I live in Dubai, so where can i buy this stroller???

  22. annnovoseltseva@gmail.com says:

    Hi! Seems to be a nice stroller! Is it suitable for infants?

  23. ColleenF says:

    Thank you for asking us about the Contours Options LT. This stroller is suitable for infants if they use the Contours infant car seat attachment (one comes with the Contours Options LT). You will need to have one of the 26 compatible car seats. You can find the compatible car seats on the specifications section of the product page (http://www.kolcraft.com/contours-options-lt-tandem-stroller.html). If you have any further questions, please ask! Thanks!

  27. Bonnie says:

    I have the older version, where it will only fold with one seat. I purchased it in Feb 2012 and my twins were born in June of 2012. It has definitely gotten a lot of use, but the constant removing of the seat for storage is a major deterrent. Is there any way to exchange the older one for the newer version?

  28. Michelle says:

    Bonnie,
    Thank you for your interest in Contours. We are sorry that we do not have a trade in for the newer model. We often host contests on our blog, so please subscribe to this blog so you won’t miss a chance to win one when available. Thanks

  29. Emma Sergeant says:

    Hi
    I live in the UK, do you know where I can purchase the Contours options LT over here please? also what colours is it available in?

    The only place I seem to be able to find it is on eBay and only in Crimson or Gold.

    It seems to tick all the boxes that I need it too.

    Many thanks

    Emma x

  30. Dee Harris says:

    Hi,

    I am also in the UK and would like to know if there is anywhere over here to purchase this. I’ve only found it on ebay but they are charging £310 which is the equivalent of paying $468, almost double the price it is on other US websites.

    Thanks

    Dee :)

  31. MichelleH says:

    We are so sorry Dee, but at the present we don’t have distribution in Europe.

  32. Sade King says:

    Hello, i am interested in buying the stroller. It’s says it is compatible with most cars eats. I already have a Mia Moda infant seat. Is it compatible with that brand.

  33. ColleenF says:

    Thank you for asking Sade. At this time, we do not list the Mia Moda infant car seat as a compatible seat. Currently the compatible brands are 2 Britax car seats, 2 Chicco car seats, the Combi Shuttle 33, 2 Cosco car seats, 6 Evenflo car seats, 6 Graco car seats, the Maxi-Cosi Mico, 3 Peg Perego car seats, and 3 Safety 1st car seats. The full list is on the product page under Specifications (http://www.kolcraft.com/contours-options-lt-tandem-stroller.html). Please let us know if you have any other questions.

  34. Stephanie says:

    This stroller looks perfect! Except for the lack of parent tray. I notice that the older version has a tray with a double cup holder – do you sell those separately? Will they fit the newer model?

    Thank you!

  35. Marella says:

    Hi, I am currently looking for a double stroller to fot my newborn & my 3 yo. Can I use this stroller for a newborn, without attaching any infant car seat? Is the reclining option flat enough for a newborn?

    Thanks,
    Marella

  36. michelle Gibson says:

    I would like to see this stroller in person before we purchase. I live in palm harbor, Florida. Do you know of any stores in the area that have Contours Options LT Tandem Stroller – Valencia Gold on display? Thank you very much

  37. ColleenF says:

    Thank you Michelle for your question. This stroller is available in two fashions at select Buy Buy Baby and Burlington Baby Depot stores. You can find links to both stores specific product pages and store locators from our product page (http://www.kolcraft.com/contours-options-lt-tandem-stroller.html). Please let us know if you have any follow up questions, etc.
    Thanks,
    Colleen @Contours

  38. ColleenF says:

    Thank you Marella for your question. I hope you received my previous response, but it does not seem to be showing on the front end!

    When using the Contours Options LT Tandem with an infant, you should always use the stroller with an infant car seat or with the stroller seat in the full recline position until the child can sit up unassisted. We hope this helps!

    Hi there, this stroller looks outstanding and the reviews are brilliant. We have nothing like this in the UK, and I can’t seem to find any stockists for the UK either. Am I missing a way of being able to buy this stroller? I need it for August! I really hope you can help :-)
