I am happy to announce that I have been accepted into the Kolcraft Moms review program. What does this mean? It means I will share products with you twice yearly and it means you will have a chance to win some awesome Kolcraft products!

In September we were blessed to receive a Contours Options II Tandem double stroller. I was very excited about this because for the past 14 months I had been using a hand me down stroller so it was nice to have a new one to use.

The above picture is the stroller straight out of the box. I found the directions pretty easy to understand and the stroller easy to put together. It only took about half an hour for me to set it up and only required a screwdriver which was a tool that is easily accessible. My first thoughts when the stroller was put together were “It’s beautiful!” and “It’s huge!”

The next day we took the stroller out for our first walk and I “christened” our brand new stroller with half a can of Dr. Pepper. I was happy to see that it wiped off easily and my clumsiness didn’t stain our stroller. We went for a few more family walks and on one of them Lucas even fell asleep! Must be a comfortable ride!

After using the stroller for a few weeks I’d like to share what I think about this stroller:

What I LOVE:

*This stroller can be used SIX different ways! My boys can face each other, both face me, both face towards the front, or each face different directions. I can also use it with just one seat which will be great for day long outings when Jacob gets older because we can put Lucas in the seat, Jacob can walk, and we can put a cooler and bags in the back of the stroller.

*Two cupholders in the parent tray- Great for when both Sinisa and I are out with the boys. Before, one of us always had to carry our drink.

*Both seats recline- Our old stroller had this feature but it was impossible for the front seat to recline with a child in the backseat but since the seats rotate this is no longer a problem for us.

*Adjustable canopies- I like that the canopies can be adjusted so as the child gets taller the canopy can be raised higher. I only wish Jacob would *use* the canopy!

*Children’s cupholders- In our old stroller both child trays had cupholders but none of their cups actually fit in the cupholders so they were pointless. The Kolcraft stroller has large cupholders that fit all of our sippy cups AND they can be removed which is a great feature.

*Large basket underneath- This is an awesome feature! I love that there is plenty of room for everything that our family of four need to bring with us on outings.

I would only change two features about this stroller. I would add child trays for snacks. My children are getting older so they can just hold baggies or containers of snacks so it’s not that big of a deal anymore but may be for those with younger children. I also wish that I did not have to take off the seats to close the stroller when putting it in my trunk but to me the other features of the stroller make it worth it.

I like several things about the Kolcraft stroller….the best thing is how amazing it folds down to fit anywhere! But I think I like the ideas that the seats recline in a lot of positions would come in handy for all ages of babies!
