At 5 years old, Kaelyn is getting to the point where she would prefer to walk when we're out shopping or on walks outside. Our 3 year old and 1 year old however, are still small enough that they need to ride most places we go. That's why having a good quality, easy to use double stroller is a must! Thankfully I know I can count on Kolcraft for just that!

Kolcraft began in 1946 when Leo Koltun made playpen pads out of cotton batting and oilcloth covers for post World War II babies. Over the years the company has grown and expanded to include a variety of products that help make the lives of parents with little ones easier! Known for their innovative and high quality baby products, as well as service that can't be beat....it's no wonder parents continue to turn to them time and time again.

We are huge Kolcraft fans in our household. Their high quality baby gear and strollers are some of the best we've seen and used. It's a fantastic place for parents to find great products from a company who truly cares about the needs of parents and children.


I am sure many of you have heard of Kolcraft, especially when it comes to their great selection of strollers. They offer a great selection of tandem strollers, including the Contours Options LT which we were given the opportunity to review.
So many double strollers are big, bulky and hard to fold. With three kids, we need something that's easy to use and travel with. That's why I was super excited that we were going to have the opportunity to review this new design.

When the stroller arrived, I was happy to see that there wasn't much assembly required. In no time at all we had it put together and ready for our next outing.
I was first drawn to the more compact size. Unlike a lot of double strollers, this one is more compact. It's still roomy enough for children to sit comfortably, but small enough that it makes pushing around and traveling with much easier.
Of course, the quality is also something that I was very impressed with. The fabrics used seem durable, comfortable and fun! I absolutely love the yellow color. It's gender neutral and different than other stroller we own.
The kids absolutely love to ride in this stroller (even Kaelyn who never wants to ride in a stroller). They seem very comfortable in the seats, and I love that they're safe and secure in them as well. Each seat has a height-adjustable 5-point safety harness and includes an infant headrest to protect little heads. As a parent, I appreciate when safety is taken into consideration, and it's evident Kolcraft made it their top priority!
Each seat also reclines, has an adjustable leg rest, and canopies. These add to the comfort of each seat, making it a great place for the little ones to nap when they're getting tired after a long day of shopping.

What really sets this stroller apart though, are the seats. Not only are they stadium styled seating for a better view for both riding, but they also position to SIX different seating options! Children can both face you, face each other, face forward, sit back to back, or you can use the stroller with just the front seat (extra storage space in the back), or use with some of the most popular infant car seats.
 

There are times when it's nice for the kids to face each other so they can talk and interact. There are other times when they're tired and need their space. For those times I like for them to be facing away from each other, or at least the same direction instead of facing each other. I love having so many options...it's like having 6 strollers in one!

Although we do not have a child in an infant car seat any more, I do appreciate that this stroller comes with an infant car seat adapter that accommodates many infant car seats, including select models from Britax®, Chicco®, Combi®, Cosco®, Evenflo®, Graco®, Maxi-Cosi®, Peg Perego®, Safety First®. For anyone with little ones, you know what a great thing it is to have a stroller that you can simply place your infant car seat on!
The kids aren't the only ones who love this double stroller. So do my hubby and I! It's lightweight design (only 33.8 lbs) makes it easy and enjoyable to push around. It doesn't feel bulky and heavy like some double strollers, which is nice when you're shopping or in a busy area with lots of people (we experienced this firsthand while Christmas shopping this year!). It rides very smoothly and is easy to maneuver

We also appreciate the features that were added just for parents. For instance, the parent cup that flexes to accommodate large and small drinks. We always have a drink of some kind along with us almost everywhere we go, so this was something we knew we'd use a lot.
The other feature for parents that I love, is the extra-large storage basket. It's perfect for holding the diaper bag, jackets and shopping bags. I wasn't sure how much storage this stroller would have being more compact, but it really does hold a lot! 





And when it comes to folding, it couldn't be easier. It's simple to do and the auto-lock and convenient free-stand allows the stroller to easily stand upright when folded. It folds down to such a nice size and best of all...you can fold it down with both sits attached. YAY!
 

We've been thrilled with the Contours Options LT Tandem Stroller and have already used it several times in the short time we've had it. It's the best of both worlds...a high quality double stroller that's compact, lightweight and easy to use! We love it and would definitely recommend it to families with little ones. It would make a fantastic gift for any new parent on your list this year.

Buy It: The Contours Options LT Tandem Stroller retails for $269.99.
