A small double buggy (information from Lamerpension) That’s Easy to Push One-Handed and Carry Up and Down Stairs

This is the double stroller that you need in case you’re looking for a lightweight stroller that is easy to push with one hand. It’s also simple to transport up and down the stairs.

It has a pair fixed seats, and up to 30 different seating configurations are possible (including the triangular design!). Both seats come with UPF 50+ canopy with windows that can be seen from a distance.


The Joovy Kooper X2 double stroller is a side-by-side double pram buggy stroller. It can accommodate two children who weigh up to 50lbs. Its seats are more generously bigger than those of other strollers with lightweight designs, and the canopies have nice-sized SPF 50 sunshades with windows that are peekaboo. Other features that are important include a self-standing basket that has a capacity of 25 pounds cup holders for one parent and swing-away bars that help children to get into and out of their seats. It’s a great choice for urban and suburban families. It is also newborn-ready with two sets that include a wedgie for a lie-flat position.


The weight of a double buggie will determine the ability to push. Typically, a light buggy will be more easy to lift and carry however, it may not have as much suspension to withstand bumps and uneven terrain.

Most double buggies come with the capacity to hold a maximum weight for each seat and some have overall frame limits and it’s important to check the details of each model before you purchase. Some fold with seats removed, making them even smaller and lighter, which can be useful when storage space is at the limit.

The tri-fold doubles tend to be the lightest, since only one hand is needed to lift the bottom and back sections. They are also smaller than buggies that are side by side and can be accessed through the majority of doors. The iCandy Geo 3 tri-fold double is among the most lightweight on the market. It can comfortably fit twins or a toddler and baby.

Tandem buggies are ideal for growing families because they begin as a single stroller and can be modified to include a second child, car seat or carrycot. Some models, like the iCandy Orange, offer over 30 seating configurations, meaning they can expand with your family to accommodate the age of a third child. They are heavier than tri-folds, however, since the weight is evenly dispersed, they are more comfortable to move around.


The best double buggies for small children can fold up in just a few minutes. Our Lab experts love this feature because it lets them to fit the buggies in the back of their car and save storage space when they are not in use. The Joovy Kooper X2 for example has straps that can be pulled up over each seat and the entire thing folds down. Even our most experienced testers were able to do this tri-fold in just one hand.

The lightweight Delta Children LX side by side is another great choice for a double buggie. Its lightness is a plus but so are the features it has big pop-out canopy that include SPF 50 protection and a the peek-a-boo window; swing-away bars to help little ones get in and out of seats and reclining chair and leg rests for little ones.


One of the most important aspects to think about when selecting the right size double buggy is its manoeuvrability especially how it is simple to move around with two children aboard. Some pushchairs are more efficient than others and include the iCandy’s “cinema seat” (where the back is elevated).

This is where narrow tandem buggies and side-by-side designs can come in useful. Buggies with this type of design can be a bit longer and can be difficult to navigate through doors.

The UPPAbaby Vista 2 pushchair is a great example, as it is a relatively small model that has two additional seats and more importantly, a pillion board that can accommodate a third child.

Other models with three wheels like the phil&teds dot are also incredibly agile, especially with its clever ‘dot kit that transforms into an inline buggy. It offers two seating options for children of different age groups and the front seat can be turned to face the parents to provide a more intimate bonding experience. It also comes with a storage basket that is easy to fold. This is a great solution for families that are growing.


With narrow tandem strollers or versatile buggies that can be used side-by-side, parents can keep an eye on both kids at the park, grocery store or anywhere else. These lightweight doubles are able to accommodate two children up to 50 lbs each. They also come with a pop-out canopy which can be extended enough to give shade. The doubles come with a single parent cupholder and an adjustable cupholder on the seat back. They also include a large underseat storage basket.
