A narroow double stroller that can fit my 2 years old. Valco Slim Twin?

momof2 • 27 May 2022


Looking for a double stroller that will fit both an infant and a 2 year old. Looking for something light-weight and as narrow as possible. and I walk alot so needs to be good for city street walking. I would prefer a side by side double stroller vs a tandem. the new Valco Slim seems like a good option, but im concerned it may be uncomfortable for my 2 year old.

What are your thoughts and advice.
Thank you.

Hello, there,

The Valco Slim Twin actually also crossed my mind as I was reading your question, but you are a bit right in the way of quite a narrow seat for your older toddler (25 cm of width). To be honest, I consider the Valco Snap Duo a bit better in terms of quality as well as seat space, so I would perhaps suggest that one rather than the Slim, if 75 cm of width works for you. It will not be horrible with the Slim, though, so if narrowness of a side-by-side is your priority, it can still be an OK option.

Another model, even if pre-owned, to consider, is the Mountain Buggy Duet V3 which is only 65 cm wide. Again, yes, narrower seat, but that will always be the case the narrower the frame of the stroller will be... but doable, and high quality. The MB Nano Duo could also be a narrow-ish, compact solution, but this one will mostly be for the city and so on, not much for any terrain.

Your -very berry- Eli.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
