Best Double Stroller: Delta Children LX Side by Side Stroller, Night Sky Reviews

Good value (By Julia Child)

Did a lot of research on double strollers. I even ordered a few pricey “luxury” models and returned them all because they were way too heavy and bulky. This is a great value for the money. A solid product for far less than most double-strollers of comparable design. Handles well, wheels swivel well, fits through doors as promised, 5-point harness, reclining seats, cupholder and MOST importantly for a mom-on-the-go, it folds easily, is compact and can be lifted into the trunk of a car without breaking the back. For under a $100 (was under $70 when I purchased from Amazon), can’t go wrong.

Liking it. Best of all, the kids like it. (By mousepotato)

The 2 main faults are true: The visor is too small and flops down with no presets. And the backs are too short for taller kids.
I already used a rubber band wrapped behind the center rod to allow the visor to hang lower and plan to stretch a piece of fabric for the backs soon. These complaints are probably the most common of ANY double stroller out there so not much to do about it but try to mod it.
I’ve had the popular strollers: City Mini- great first stroller which reclines fully, but is way too bulky for busy parents. Then we used a variety of cheap umbrella strollers, which was great- light, low expectations, and surprisingly durable and versatile. Then, the popular Joovy Caboose- I modded it to have the infant carseat in the rear and older kid in the front, but not ‘sleepable’ with a short back. I thought that was the end of it. So after 2 years of Disney, shopping, and local parks using 2 umbrella strollers (great), now the older kid wants to get out and walk a bit, leaving one stranded stroller. (I think everyone goes through this) Solution, no more big, heavy expensive strollers, no need to show off, no slicing off finger tips, etc. I need to get in/out of the car quickly and get through 30 inch doorways and aisles. The Delta LX is great and the kids love it. The larger wheels roll over most small bumps that smaller wheels catch on. I don’t miss the third handle although some people say they can push with one hand. The handles are pretty high- I don’t understand why people say they’re short and the horizontal ends give you more hand positions to avoid fatigue. Sample variation is high- I had one that the wheel was coming off in the back.
It is held together by rivets instead of screws and bolts which may seem cheap, but if they last like our umbrella strollers, I’d say it is great. Turns great, holds enough bottles, diapers I care to hold on a stroller and is about 20 pounds. Hey, it helps us all get what we need done, and that says a lot! Don’t be the ones pushing the bus-like strollers or the double Bob-type monstrosities or the Phil/Ted with one kid sitting underneath the other one. This stroller hits the trifecta: light, cheap, good.

Excellent except for sun shades (By agmom)

Easy to collapse one handed, but it takes two to get it into the car because there’s no way to lock it together that I’ve found. The little shades are truly LITTLE and completely ineffective. I have two small kiddos, so I really appreciate that each kid has their own “side”, we can adjust the straps to fit them, and keep the items they want in the rather spacious nets behind each one. (I keep a change of undies, flushable wipes and babydoll (which has to go with us everywhere) in the first one, and then diapers, wipes, butt paste and worm in the other one.) Plenty of storage space for that type of thing, but there isn’t any under-the-stroller storage. There is one cupholder. It drives just fine with only one child in it. The brakes work well, and it’s fairly easy to steer, especially given that it’s a side by side tandem stroller. Keep in mind that it IS wider than a single stroller so that it’s not as easy to steer it around in narrow areas, but for zoos, walks around the neighborhood, going to the park, that type of thing, this is great minus the lousy sun shades. Seriously, Delta, fix the sun shades please so that we having a winning double umbrella stroller here!

Better than even anticipated. (By Desiree)

I bought this in August for my 2 boys. A 4 yr old that is 42 inches tall and my 2 yr old that is 26 inches tall. I needed something for our trip to disney this coming December. We have a larger double stroller already but it ways around 70 pounds by itself. I also needed something that would have better mobility and fit in areas a little easier. I have used this stroller multiple times now doing things from shopping to the Zoo. It is amazing and both boys fit nicely with a little room to grow. Both of my boys are tall and skinny, the only thing is if you have a child on the chunky side it may not be as comfortable. The seats are more narrow so the entire stroller fits easier through all walkways. It collapses with 1 hand which is great for me. I am 5’4 and my husband is 6 foot and both of us were comfortable pushing it. I would order a second cup holder though. Over all I loved it and still do.

Not fancy, but nicely functional for families on a budget (By Erinni)

When we got season passes to Knott’s Berry farm, we deliberated over whether we should buy a double stroller or just rent one while there. Buying one made a lot more financial sense, but the last thing we wanted was a big clunky stroller taking up trunk space or house space, especially since we wouldn’t be using it every day. I finally decided to chance it with this stroller and placed my order. I am so glad that I did!

I have included a picture of this stroller collapsed with a regular umbrella stroller in front of it. I apologize for the terrible lighting, but hopefully you can see that it is about the size of two very compact umbrella strollers. It fit into the trunk of our car without any issue whatsoever. Once we got to the park, I just lifted it right out and popped it into position for the kids. It is extremely easy and straightforward.

Assembly was simply a matter of pushing wheels into place and snapping on the single cupholder. I wish there would have been two, but at the price I am not complaining.

I was worried that it wouldn’t have enough storage since there is no basket underneath, but it was fine. It has net bags on the back which were holding all kinds of stuff by the end of the day. I put my purse over one handle and the very full diaper bag/backpack over the other. The back pack got close to the ground but never actually touched it.

Our 3.5 year old is tall and slim. She didn’t use the stroller much, but it fit her perfectly. Our 18 month old son is a bit short but a good weight. He kept getting an arm at a time out of the shoulder straps which was a bit annoying and we couldn’t adjust it to where that did not happen. The canopies were pretty pointless.
