What Is The Best Stroller For A Big Kid?

Is your baby growing too fast? Has your kid become a bit too heavy to be carried in the arms?  Is your child’s school a bit too far? Or does your kid have a health condition that makes it risky for him or her to walk for long distances? If you have said yes to any of the above questions, then you definitely need a big kid stroller.

No matter your reason for seeking a big kid stroller, I am here to assist you. In this post I reveal to you some of the best strollers for big kids in 2019. These strollers have been tested and proven to be superior in comparison to competing strollers. They are also highly-rated by moms and dads out there.

Specifically, I reveal fifteen of the best strollers for big kids. I also reveal two stroller alternatives for those who want something more than what standard big kid strollers have to offer.

All the products I review in this post have exciting features and functions. Most importantly, they have high weight capacities. I am confident that you will find something here to suit all your needs.

Big Kid Strollers for 2019

Most modern strollers already have longer seats and high weight capacities to accommodate big kids. After hours of research, a bit of asking around, and three days of window shopping, I came up with my own ranking of the best strollers for big kids in 2019. Most of these strollers are from leading baby product companies and can handle tall and heavy kids weighing even as much as 75 pounds.

Below is a summary of my list of the best strollers for toddlers and preschoolers.

Umbrella strollers for big kids

Parents are nowadays increasingly buying umbrella strollers. This is because the strollers are suitable for everyday use. The suitability comes from the fact that they are very light and portable.

Modern umbrella strollers for big kids can be compactly folded and pulled-along like travel suitcases. Additionally, they are usually compact enough to easily fit into the trunks of most cars.

Despite the fact that they can be nicely folded into light and compact units, umbrella strollers are sturdy, fully-functional, and extremely durable. So do not be fooled by how they look.

Most of these strollers are designed to be used by kids of all ages from the infant stage. However, there are a couple of models that are specifically made for toddlers and preschoolers. In this section, I will tell you all about the umbrella strollers that are built for big kids and what makes each one of them unique.

GB Pockit Plus

Gb pocket plus pram

You will probably find it very difficult to find another premium big kid stroller that is as light as this one. At just 13.5 pounds, this lightweight stroller is extremely easy to carry.

The GB Pockit Plus stroller features a tall canopy and a wide seat. These features make it perfect for accommodating older children. Your 4-year-old or 5-year-old will probably feel more comfy riding in it than in any other stroller.

This stroller can also be easily and nicely folded. In the folded state, it is even easier to carry around, and it takes up very little storage space. In fact, it is so minimized in the folded state that you can easily carry it around with one hand, store it in your car trunk, or put it in an overhead compartment when flying out of town.

Owning a stroller that can fold and become as small as this one is a really cool experience. The reason for this is that when your toddler is tired of getting carried in the stroller, he or she can alight, and you can fold it and carry it like a handbag/ man bag.

image19 1The GB Pockit Plus folds rather nicely into a tiny handbag-size unit

What is particularly impressive about this stroller for big kids is its canopy. The canopy is impressive in the sense that it is big and rounded to provide full coverage for your kiddo. With this canopy properly set up, your baby’s upper body will be fully protected from sun rays.

One more thing that is impressive about this stroller is its reclining seat. Most kids who are still young enough to use strollers usually need to nap frequently. The good news is that the backrest on this seat can recline significantly to create a “bed” for your kid to nap comfortably. You will find this feature to be useful during long walks or trips. These kinds of trips usually leave kids very exhausted after some time. Having a stroller where your kid can catch some Z’s can be very convenient at such times.

In terms of the design, the GB Pockit Plus stroller is generally slim. You will be able to easily navigate it through crowded places and narrow aisles. However, its tires are kind of small. They are perfect for strolling on smooth surfaces but do not do so well on rough surfaces. Lastly, this stroller comes with a small storage bag underneath the seat for your kid’s essentials.

What other buyers think

Although this umbrella stroller is increasingly becoming popular, there are some buyers who are not very impressed by some of its features. A quick look at Amazon reviews for this product will show you exactly what i am talking about. However, before checking out the reviews, check out the summarized pros and cons for the GB Pockit Plus below.

Pros

  • Can be minimized significantly through folding making it easy to store and perfect for traveling parents.
  • Extremely light and can be carried easily around the house
  • Slim and easy to steer in most places
  • Has a big and round canopy that keeps out bright light and harmful UV rays
  • Comes with a wide seat that is comfortable for older kids (4-year-olds and 5-year-olds)
  • The seat can be reclined significantly – convenient for children who nap frequently

Cons

  • The seat is not as upright as it can be; the Inglesina Net is more upright
  • Its reclining design is not the best out there
  • The canopy coverage reduces when you recline the seat
  • It cannot be folded using one hand
  • Some parents say it is wobbly on some surfaces

Why you may not want to buy this product

Despite being a modern baby buggy, the GB Pockit Plus does not have big wheels or a suspension system. It is therefore not an all-terrain stroller. So if this is a deal breaker for you, you may want to consider some of the other strollers on my list.

Why you should buy this product

  1. It is suitable for long trips as it can easily be folded when not needed or unfolded and used when the child is tired and in need of rest. It is also great for trips because it can easily be carried and stored in car trunks and in overhead compartments in planes.
  2. It can be folded to become as small as a handbag.
  3. It has a roomy enclosure that is suitable for older kids.

GB Pockit

GB Pockit top stroller

GB Pockit is one of the pioneer lightweight strollers. In fact, at just 9.5 pounds, it remains one of the lightest strollers around despite having been released a couple of years ago.

It is well-built with strong and durable materials to ensure that it can carry even big kids as heavy as 55 pounds. This makes it the lightest weight big kid stroller in the globe!

One of the things you will straightaway notice about it is how small it can fold. Indeed it can be folded into a very small unit that you can fit and carry inside a handbag. The fact that it can be carried in a handbag should tell you that you can easily store it or travel with it.

Speaking of travel, most parents will find the GB Pockit convenient because it is slim and can easily be steered through crowds and tight corners in airports, metro stations, and other locations.

As mentioned, the GB Pockit is made of sturdy and durable materials. This means it can assist you and your kid for many years.

I first used the GB Pockit in January 2018 when my son was three and a half years old. He weighed about 40 pounds back then and was significantly tall for a child of his age. Despite his height and weight, he looked very comfortable in the stroller. This is the reason why this particular stroller made it to my ranking as the second best big kid stroller.

stroller for older kidsGB Pockit – stroller for older children

Like many other strollers of its class, this toddler stroller comes with a small basket underneath the seat. Although small in size, the basket is strong enough to hold 11 pounds of items. So you can definitely use it to go for some light shopping, and to carry your baby’s stuff when out and about.

In terms of build, this stroller is rather slim. However, it comes with four dual wheels that ensure stability and easy maneuverability. The front wheels on it can be locked for better control when there is no need to negotiate tight corners. I loved the locked wheels feature when using this stroller because it made it easier for me to use this stroller over non-even surfaces.

When unlocked, the front wheels of the GB Pockit stroller swivel well and enhance its ability to navigate through crowds, restaurants, and shopping aisles.

What other buyers think

As I have always said in most of my posts, I usually research widely before purchasing any baby product online. In my research, I always make sure I find out what other buyers are saying about the product I want to buy. The GB Pockit has been reviewed by dozens of verified purchasers on Amazon. I have organized their opinions and my takes in the pros and cons below.

Pros

  • Well-made utilizing high-quality materials
  • Ideal for long trips, shopping, and going to local restaurants
  • Can comfortably accommodate a six-year-old kid
  • Can be folded into a surprisingly small lightweight and space-saving unit
  • Has extendable handles that make it easy for parents to find the height that is just right for them
  • Extremely user-friendly  

Cons

  • Canopy is big but not big enough
  • Its storage basket is small

Why you may not want to buy this product                                                                                          

Although this rides comfortably and is easy to maneuver on rough surfaces, its small wheels make it difficult to steer and maneuver on uneven surfaces.

Moreover, unlike the GB Pockit Plus (the upgraded version) that comes with a reclining seat, this stroller’s seat cannot recline. This means your child cannot take a nap in it.

Lastly, it is not newborn-ready and it is not compatible with infant car seats.

Why you should buy this product

  1. It is lightweight and can fold into a very compact unit. This makes it great for traveling. It is also perfect for big kids since most of them also like walking on their own after some time on the stroller.
  2. It is brilliant for a six-year-old kid. This is because it is designed to comfortably accommodate big kids.
  3. It saves a lot of space. When you fold it properly, you can easily store it in your closet or in the trunk of your car.

UPPAbaby G-LUXE

UPPAbaby G-LUXE strollers

This is one of the most stylish big kid strollers for 2019.

Although it is somewhat expensive, I could not resist the urge to have it in my list because it is made of high-quality materials, it is lightweight, and it is designed for toddlers and preschoolers.

To show you just how suitable the UPPAbaby G-LUXE stroller is for older kids, check out the following features.

First off, the sitting area is deep and wide, while its backrest is tall to make the resulting enclosure suitable for bigger and older kids.

Secondly, the canopy is tall and roomy. This means that it can easily accommodate taller kids.

Nevertheless, I must say that although the canopy is tall and roomy, this stroller is not designed to help kids nap comfortably. This is because the tall backrest does not have head support beyond its 20-inches long height. Even though this may be a deal breaker for some parents, older kids will not mind the design and will certainly love the comfort of it when they get tired at amusement parks or at the mall.

The predecessor to this stroller, the original UPPAbaby G-LUXE, was extremely popular among parents of 2-year-olds. This is because of its high weight limit and its size. This latest model of the baby carriage is even better suited for older kids. In fact, it is so sturdy and so roomy that even a 5-year-old would fit comfortably in it (as long as he or she weighs less than 55 pounds).

image23 1

This UPPAbaby stroller has a unique wheel design. The two back wheels are doubled for stability while the front ones are singular for easy steering. The wheels are, however, not so big. Meaning, you can easily maneuver this baby buggy over smooth surfaces and slightly uneven surfaces such as gravel and uncut lawns. You, however, will find it difficult to navigate this stroller over unbeaten paths/ roads.

As I stated earlier, this is one of the most stylish strollers out there. One look at the canopy and you will agree that I am saying the truth. The canopy is made of expensive material. The design of it is useful. You can extend it to increase its coverage. The extendable canopy is complemented by a sort of a sunblind, which will ensure that your son or daughter is fully protected from the sun.

Other exciting UPPAbaby features and functions include its cup-holder, its brilliant suspension system, and its one-hand recline. These useful features make it convenient to use this stroller.

Lastly, this stroller can be folded nicely into a compact bag-like item. It comes with a shoulder strap that makes it easy to carry around when in the folded condition.

What other buyers think

This product went on sale early last year, so it does not have dozens of reviews like other strollers. However, based on what I have seen and what I have heard from other parents about it, I have gotten a very clear idea of what parents like and what they do not like about it.

Below are its pros and cons:

Pros

  • Has a large basket that can hold plenty of stuff
  • Storage space is easily accessible from the back
  • Made of superior quality and durable materials
  • Stunning design and quality
  • Rides fairly smoothly on most surfaces
  • Stable and comfy courtesy of its wheel design and suspension system
  • Removable and machine-washable seat fabrics
  • Large and roomy canopy; plenty of headroom for your kiddo
  • Wide and spacious seat
  • One-hand recline seat; perfect for napping

 Cons

  • Can be difficult to fold for some parents
  • Has an unlockable storage pocket
  • Its canopy does not have a see-through mesh or window, preventing parents from monitoring their kids while pushing it

Why you may not want to buy this product                                                                                          

Despite all its pros, its stylish design, and its suitability for older kids, the UPPAbaby G-LUXE stroller is quite expensive. If you are on a budget, you should probably consider its alternatives.

Why you should buy this product

  1. It is a stylish stroller that is made of premium quality materials.
  2. It has a seat that is designed for older kids. It is deep, wide, and has a long backrest. The seat can comfortably fit even 5-year-olds.
  3. It can fold into a small backpack-like item that you can easily carry over your shoulder using its convenient shoulder strap. It is also easy to store when in the folded state.

ZOE XL1 BEST v2

ZOE XL1 BEST v2

Those who are on a budget will love this stroller. This is because it is one of the most affordable lightweight baby carriages available on the market.

The ZOE XLI BEST v2 is made of nice materials despite its low price. One of its most unique features is its ability to fold into a compact unit. It folds like a dream – quickly and seamlessly. It also opens up similarly quickly. Therefore it is very convenient to use with older kids since you can open it or close it quickly whenever you need to.

Because it can fold into a compact unit, it is a space saver. You will be able to fit into your supermarket trolley or into the trunk of your car, no matter how small it is. It is also very light (weighs only 11 pounds). Therefore, carrying it is not a problem.

The ZOE XLI BEST v2 is best known for its nice seat and expansive canopy. The seat is well padded for comfort, while the canopy is quite large that its shade normally covers even the knees. The sitting area and the canopy size make this stroller suitable for older kids. Heck, even four-year-olds can use this ZOE stroller.

Most lightweight strollers have small wheels. This one is no different. It has got small wheels. However, it also has a front wheel suspension system. So although the wheels are not big and inflated, the suspension system brings about some significant comfort for the rider.

And even though this stroller has a suspension system that cushions the rider from shocks, I do not recommend the use of this stroller on uneven surfaces. This is because it does not move smoothly on such surfaces. The ZOE XLI BEST v2 is better suited for indoor surfaces, sidewalks, pavements, and well-cut lawns.

image25 1

What made me include this stroller in my ranking, apart from its price, is its accessories. This stroller has got a crazy number of accessories for both the pusher and the passenger. The accessories include a belly bar, a pusher cup holder, a passenger cup holder, a child snack cup, and a large storage basket. All these accessories make it very convenient to use.

What other buyers think

To get a clear picture of this stroller, I read all the reviews left for it on Amazon. Below is a presentation of what most parents were impressed with and what they did not like.

Pros

  • Folds into a compact unit; perfect for parents who love traveling
  • Folds quickly and seamlessly. It can also be opened similarly
  • Ultra-lightweight (weighs just 11 pounds)
  • Has a very expansive canopy that provides maximum cover
  • Has a generously padded seat
  • The seat is significantly reclinable and good enough for your kid to comfortably sleep in

Cons

  • Small wheels
  • It is not exactly the easiest stroller to navigate

Why you may not want to buy this product                                                                                          

The wheels are small. This makes this product unsuitable for use on uneven terrain and unbeaten paths. The storage space is walled with a mesh-like material. This exposes your stuff to prying eyes and to dust and other weather elements. Nevertheless, most parents are of the opinion that these are insignificant drawbacks on an otherwise brilliant and affordable stroller.

Why you should buy the ZOE XL1 stroller

  1. It is a brilliant stroller especially for parents who are on a budget (costs not more than 150 USD).
  2. It is suitable even for 4-year-olds. Meaning it is perfect for travel and for day trips to amusement parks, museums, and large malls.
  3. It comes with a host of accessories. This makes it convenient and means you won’t have to spend money on them.

Standard strollers for toddlers and preschoolers

Lightweight strollers are brilliant because most parents find them easy to push and to carry. However, most of them are usually stripped of some accessories and luxuries to make them as light as they are. The strollers that have everything are standard strollers. I found a couple of such strollers on the market for older kids. They are well-built and designed with longer seats and taller canopies to accommodate taller and older kids.

Based on my research, the following are the best standard strollers for older kids.

Baby Jogger 2016 City Mini GT

Baby Jogger 2016 City Mini GT

Baby Jogger is a renowned manufacturer of quality baby products. This is one of their best works yet!

The Baby Jogger City Mini GT is a chic and well-made stroller that is perfect for big kids. In fact, it is so well-made that it has a weight capacity of 65 pounds. In other words, even 5-year-olds can safely ride in it.

This standard stroller has a deep seat and a long and comfy backrest. The sitting area is well-padded and features great fabric, while the backrest will probably be the longest you have ever seen on a stroller. These features show you the comfort that this stroller can provide especially for bigger and older kids.

To add even more comfort for your passenger, you can adjust the footrest, the canopy, and the height of the safety harness. The seat is also reclinable for extra comfort and for napping.

Many parents I have talked to love this stroller’s large canopy and the fact that it is extendable. This is because it provides more than enough shade and it is designed to offer UV protection. This means you can use the Baby Jogger City Mini GT even during bright summer days. This stroller also comes with a see-through window to enable you, the pusher, to constantly monitor your baby.

This standard stroller is perfect for use as it is day-to-day stroller. This is because it has everything you need to use it daily. It can be folded into a small and easy to carry unit. This makes it nice for going to many places with your baby as you can fold it when your baby is tired or when using public transport.

The big wheels on this stroller make it suitable for riding on all kinds of terrain, including dirt roads and uncut lawns.

Frankly, based on the features and functions mentioned above, I can confidently say that this is one of the best standard strollers for toddlers and preschoolers.

image27 1

Additionally, the Baby Jogger City Mini GT has an extendable handlebar. I love this feature because my partner is very tall and am short but we can both adjust the bar to the right height for easy pushing and navigation.

The Baby Jogger City Mini GT also comes with a hand bra4ke for extra control and safety.

Lastly, this full-sized stroller seamlessly folds courtesy of its original and unique folding mechanism. In fact, unlike strollers that require a bit of effort to be folded, this one can be triggered to fold by itself by pulling a strap. When it folds itself, this stroller is easy to carry and transport. The reasons are that it locks automatically in the folded position, and it has a central strap for carrying it over the shoulder.

What other buyers think

This product has over 200 reviews on Amazon. Most of the reviews were positive. This shows you just how popular and well-regarded this stroller is. However, some parents are not okay with some of its features. Check out what parents identified as the pros and cons of this stroller.

Pros

  • Extremely safe standard stroller
  • It rides effortlessly
  • Folds magnificently
  • Single front tire and slim design for easy maneuverability
  • Absorbs shock on gravel, cobblestone, sidewalks
  • Suitable for all-terrains including unbeaten paths and trails
  • Sold at an affordable price
  • Well-made and can hold kids as heavy as 65 pounds
  • Very lightweight and easy to carry around

Cons

  • Does not have many accessories such as cup holders (you will have to buy them separately)
  • Apart from the storage basket, there are no other pockets or storage areas to hide essentials

Why you may not want to buy this product                                                          

This stroller is brilliant in so many ways. However, it does have a couple of flaws. For instance, its seat does not get to the vertical position. This makes it difficult for kids to sit straight if they want to.

It also does not come with any accessories. This makes it less convenient to use than other strollers such as the ZOE XL1 BEST v2 stroller.

Why you should buy the Baby Jogger City Mini GT

  1. It is easy to carry around and to push compared to other strollers.
  2. Has all-terrain tires and can, therefore, be used in almost all sorts of surfaces.
  3. It has a patented folding mechanism, and can, therefore, fold very quickly. In fact, it is one of the fastest-folding strollers currently available online.

Britax 2017 B-Agile

Britax 2017 B-AgileBritax B-Agile 2017

They say Gillette is the “best a man can get”, I say the Britax 2017 B-Agile is “the best a toddler can get.” And I have got a hundred and one reasons to support my claim.

Despite weighing just 18 pounds, this stylish and eye-catching stroller is well-made and sturdy enough to hold babies as heavy as 55 pounds. This is a pretty high weight capacity and it is good enough for holding big kids.

The frame is made of aluminum. This is the reason why this stroller is lightweight and easy to carry.

The wheel design is amazing. There are two large back wheels and a dual front wheel. This wheel configuration simultaneously guarantees stability and easy maneuverability.

Why did I say this stroller is the “best a toddler can get?” Well, because it is deliberately made to make strolling fun and safe for toddlers. For instance, it has got a suspension system that provides supreme shock absorption. This guarantees that all rides are smooth and comfortable. The stroller also has a big canopy with plenty of headroom for comfort. The large canopy provides great protection from the blinding sun during summer.

It also has a peek-a-boo window that not only allows close monitoring but also facilitates air flow for ventilation.

The Britax 2017 B-Agile seat is generously padded for comfort. It can also recline to multiple positions. This makes it easier to find just the right angle to provide your kiddo with all the comfort he or she needs.

In terms of safety, this stroller comes with a tough but comfortable harness for your toddler. It also has got brakes to ensure that the pusher is in full control of its speed.

image29 1B-Agile 2017 is a popular stroller

The B-Agile 2017 stroller also has got a relatively large storage area below the seat. This storage area can carry your baby’s gear, your gear, and even a small shopping bag.

Lastly, folding this thing is a breeze. In fact, you can even do it with one hand.

What other buyers think

Britax B-Agile is a very popular stroller. The last time I checked, it had well over one hundred reviews on Amazon. Most of the reviews were 5-star reviews. From looking at the reviews, I was able to tell that most parents love how adapted this baby carriage is for toddlers. Below are some of the pros and cons based on the info I got from the reviews.

Pros

  • It is convenient for tall parents to push
  • It can recline to multiple positions including an almost flat position that is ideal for napping
  • It can be folded using one hand
  • It becomes really compact when folded and is therefore easy to store
  • It is sturdy enough to carry kids as heavy as 55 pounds
  • It has a large storage compartment underneath the main seat
  • Comes with a large canopy
  • Moves effortlessly and negotiates tight corners easily

Cons

  • Has no cup holder
  • Seat cannot be set to the upright position
  • It has no footrest

Why you may not want to buy this product

Some parents do not like the fact that the reclining seat cannot be set in a vertical position. Some also think that the recline mechanism could have been better designed. As of now, if the recline is done wrongly, the seat becomes lopsided and uncomfortable.

Why you should buy the Britax B-Agile

  1. It is a cheap but great quality product from Britax. It is the company’s best-selling product.
  2. It is one of the best strollers for 4-year-olds. It can accommodate even very tall and very heavy kids.
  3. It is extremely easy to navigate and to fold.

Double strollers for big kids

If you’ve got toddler twins, then you most probably already know how difficult it is to carry two toddlers in the arms. This is where double strollers come in. There are plenty of double strollers out there but only several of them are meant for big kids.

In this section, I rank the best big kid double strollers 2019. These strollers have got higher weight limits and can comfortably fit tall and heavy toddlers and preschoolers.

Baby Jogger 2016 City Mini GT Double Stroller

Baby Jogger 2016 City Mini GT Double StrollerBaby Jogger City Mini GT Double Stroller

If you are looking for a multi-tasking stroller suitable for any kind of terrain, you should know that this Baby Jogger stroller is the one to go for. This stunning double stroller has an impressive total weight capacity of 100 pounds. Each of its two seats is 21 inches tall. This is taller than most other strollers out there. And according to some parents’ reviews, even tall and heavy preschoolers can comfortably ride this particular stroller. Additionally, City Mini GT Double features all-terrain tires that work nicely on both dirt roads and sidewalks.

This Baby Jogger stroller has other great features and functions including: an adjustable handlebar that offers comfortable steering for all heights, reclining seats, compatibility with newborn car seats, two huge individually extendable canopies with see-through windows, and brilliant hand-controlled brakes.

Maclaren Twin Triumph

Maclaren Twin Triumph top double strollerMaclaren Twin Triumph

This is, hands down, a top 10 double stroller for toddlers and preschoolers. It can comfortably fit even two kids of 55 pounds each (110 pounds total)! This is nice because it is very difficult to nowadays get a stroller with such a high weight capacity. The basic weight of most strollers is usually about 21.2 pounds.

The best thing about this Maclaren double stroller is that it can be used right from birth (using a carrycot) until your child starts school. Even a four-year-old tall toddler can fit in it.

This stroller also comes with some two very special canopies. They are extendable, water-resistant, and are UPF 50+ rated for full cover and protection from the elements. They also come with see-through windows to allow you to closely monitor your babies.

You will also love its adjustable footrests and reclining seats. Additionally, it has a huge mesh basket beneath the seats that you can use to carry your stuff and your twins’ stuff.

The Maclaren Twin Triumph is specifically designed for flat and smooth terrain. It is difficult to navigate on rough and bumpy surfaces.

  2. The stroller is light and can therefore be easily navigated, which is very convenient when going for a stroll with taller and older babies.
  3. You can use it as a day-to-day double stroller and as a travel double stroller.

ZOE XL2 BEST v2 Double Stroller

ZOE XL2 BEST v2 Double StrollerZOE XL2 BEST (v2) Double Stroller

Perfect for running errands or travel, this is an incredible double stroller for toddlers and preschoolers. It weighs in at 17 pounds only- quite little for a double stroller. Its seats are very long (23 inches tall) and ideal for older kids. The stroller can carry a maximum of 50 pounds per seat. This means that it can accommodate three or even four-year-olds.

One of the few things that I love about ZOEXL2 BEST is that it features a lightweight aluminum frame that is easy and quick to fold away. The stroller also features a cup holder for each child, a cup holder for the pusher, a child tray and a belly-bar.

image51 1

ZOE XL2 BEST Double Stroller – perfect stroller for toddlers

This is my favorite. It is one of the best single jogging strollers for heavy kids. It weighs in at about 30.5 pounds and has a maximum weight limit of 75 pounds.

PRO’s construction is very sturdy and solid which makes this particular stroller perfect for bigger toddlers. It comes with huge wheels that work well on bumpy surfaces such as cracked sidewalks, unbeaten paths or even sandy beaches.

The front wheel is 12.5 inches wide while the rear one is 16 inches wide. You can set the front wheel in two different positions: locked forward for increased stability when jogging on bumpy terrain and swivel for increased agility.

Double jogging strollers for big kids

Below are two of the best double jogging strollers that are available on the market today.

BOB 2016 Revolution PRO Duallie

image35 1BOB 2016 Revolution PRO Duallie

The BOB 2016 Revolution PRO Duallie is the best double stroller by a mile! It is a gorgeous baby buggy that you can use to take your twins places you may have never even imagined going with them. This number one baby jogger can accommodate two kids of up to 50 pounds each. If you love jogging, then you will love it even more. This is because it is designed for jogging.

The BOB 2016 Revolution PRO Duallie weighs 36 pounds. This is very light for a double stroller. Despite its “lightweightness”, it is a sturdy machine that will carry your twins comfortably and safely regardless of the speed you are moving at.

I have used this before to carry my kids. They are not twins but it accommodated them well and it never felt unbalanced. The thing I can remember the most about it is how breezily it glides. You really have to only apply a very small amount of effort to get it moving. This is regardless of the terrain.

You can use it on both even and uneven surfaces and it will give you the same pleasant performance and experience.

I believe its large inflated wheels play a major role in making it extremely easy to maneuver/ steer. The front wheel is 12.5″, while the rear wheels are 16″. The front wheel swivels and makes it easy to negotiate tight corners. However, to get stability when jogging, you can lock it and prevent it from swiveling.

The BOB 2016 Revolution PRO Duallie stroller comes with two brakes: a handbrake and a footbrake. These two brakes guarantee maximum control over speed. This is especially useful when jogging.

BOB 2016 Revolution PRO DuallieBOB 2016 Revolution PRO Duallie backside

This machine comes with an advanced suspension system. The system together with the inflated tires acts as a shock absorber. This ensures a smooth and bumpless ride for your passengers.

The handlebar on this thing is also adjustable and therefore appropriate for parents of all heights.

As I said before, the BOB Revolution PRO Duallie is way ahead of its competitors. In my opinion, it is the best jogging double stroller for older kids.

What other buyers think

Why you may not want to buy this product

Baby Trend Navigator Double Jogger Stroller

image37 1Baby Trend Navigator Double Jogger Stroller

The Baby Trend Navigator Double Jogger Stroller is a fantastic option for those seeking a slim, well-balanced, and foldable double jogger stroller!

It has two seats. Each seat can sit a kid not more than 42″ tall and not heavier than 50 pounds. This is pretty impressive and shows that it can accommodate even kids as old as 5-years-old. So you can expect many years of service from this stroller if you buy it early enough.

Unlike most joggers, the Baby Trend Navigator Double Jogger has got an unfamiliar 4-wheel configuration. This configuration ensures stability and easier navigation. The two front wheels can be locked or unlocked depending on the terrain. When locked, they provide more stability, as opposed to when they are unlocked. Unlocked wheels are better suited for navigating sharp corners and crowds. All the wheels on this stroller are pneumatic (air-filled) for shock absorption.

The Baby Trend Navigator Double Jogger has other interesting features such as a slim build, two cup holders, and a good storage space. However, none of these features are as interesting as the stroller’s MP3 speakers. Those who have used them before claim that the speakers are just loud enough to be heard by you and the baby, but not too loud to wake up the neighbors when you are going for an early morning run.

It can be folded into a compact unit that easily fits into the trunks of most sedans. Not many double strollers can be folded this way.
