You'd think by now I'd have this stroller thing covered. The thing is, needs change. We've had a gazillion different strollers at various times from the snap n' go to the single Graco, to the in-line double, to the double jogger to the umbrella stroller.
Well, as we look forward to #4 we've found we need something new. We need a double that will work for a newbie and a 20 month-old. The in-line double was ditched as soon as we got the jogger and good riddance!, they have come a long way since my bulky, heavy, hard-to-turn monstrosity. Even so, I'm just going to go ahead and admit it - we'd really like a Phil and Ted's. Ooooooohhhhhhhh - the price just kills me! The thought of paying that much for a stroller makes me want to gag - and it costs extra for the doubles kit! Ack!
There are a few things I really don't like about the Phil and Ted's strollers - mainly the completely inadequate shade for either child. But we've really looked around over the past couple years, test-driven, and overall it seems to be coming in at the top of the list.
So here's the deal - we're looking to buy a used one, which I think we'll probably be able to do, I've seen a couple on *Craig's list recently. But - before we invest our saved $$$ into a stroller which still isn't cheap even used, I'm looking for some last minute input.
If you have a double stroller you love, would you please tell me about it?
And if you know of a good way to get hold of a used Phil and Ted's or a new one for cheap, I'd love to be pointed in that direction too.
*As a little side note here - I cringe a bit at using Craig's list because after all the good things about it, human trafficking is rampant on Craig's list. Yes, that's correct, you read that right.
