Wheeling with the Wee Ones

Strollin', strollin', strollin'.....

Ask any experienced mom of twins what are the "must-haves" for the early days/years with two babies. Better yet, ask 100.

Diapers are a given; but hands-down, 99.9% (right up there with Ivory Soap levels) of your respondents will verify there is nothing, nothing so treasured by both parents and their plural pumpkins as a double stroller.

That said, check out this sweet set of wheels, the latest from Chicco, the Trevi Twin...

Guess what? The gracious gang at Chicco is letting us GIVE ONE AWAY!

Free is always good; but this is one terrific twin mover: the aluminum construction makes for lighter lifting (and we twin mamas can use whatever load reduction we can!); dual canopies for protection from rain, sun, and the deluge of strangers descending upon the baby/-ies you just got to sleep; recline capability for snoozy strollees; and the piece de resistance...the sole item I wished for so desperately on my loyal, dutiful, long-serving double stroller, a built-in cupholder. Seriously, Chicco has thought of EVERYTHING with this model...

SOOO, do you want one?

Add a comment below telling us your favorite place -- or anticipated favorite place for expecting twin mamas -- to stroll with your sweeties and why. One lucky winner will receive the Trevi Twin. For good measure, I'll send along a signed copy of Twinspiration: Real-Life Advice from Pregnancy through the First Year, wherein we share all our tips for making maneuvering with multiples fun.

Looking forward to hearing your hallowed haunts!

Oh my goodness, I can only pick one of my favorite places :-) I take Morgan and Trinity everywhere and we try to make it an adventure! Our newest adventure coming up is to take them to Maui! I have a double stroller and it is heavy! I hate lifting it in and out of the car.

We would love to sport Morgan and Trinity around in Trevi Twin around Maui to make our trip more doable. Plus, they would look cute and stylish!

Love your blog! I found it through your post on my blog! Thank you and yes, I'll have to read your book even though my babies are 17 months old already :-)

Mattam said...

Oh yeah, and I just added you as one of my links!! So fun :-)

Terri O'Laughlin said...

If I could only pick one place it would be the zoo. We have taken the boys twice so far, and I am so excited to take them again in the fall. They love looking at all of the animals and wildlife. Last time we went, their favorite was the bird house.

Melissa said...

Oh, Cheryl- This is a good one! What a fabulous stroller! As a SINGLE mom of twins, I am always looking for ways to make it easier to take my twins out on my own. I am always planning every detail of all of our outings to ensure smooth sailing for my duo and I! This stroller looks like it would certainly make our forays easier and simpler! I have to be so careful not throw out my back lifting our heavy double stroller in and out of the car. I can't allow myself to get hurt.....who will take care of the twinnies?
I would love to use this stroller to take my twin sweeties everywhere, but if I have to choose one place, I would say that I cannot wait to take them on their first vacation to the beach! I can just see us packed and loaded down with beach gear, strolling along the boardwalk.....listening to surf, feeling the wind, and hearing all of the passerby say "Aw...look at those adorable twins in that gorgeous stroller!"
Great contest! Thanks!

What a wonderful stroller!!!
My favorite place to stroll my almost 3 yr. old twin daughters, Abby & Emma, is our neighborhood!

Our neighborhood has a very large lake & many hills. I take the girls on a 2 mile stroll every morning around our neighborhood. I love taking the hills because it is a wonderful workout for me. The girls love the lake! The love seeing the ducks swimming with their babies, the butterfly habitats, the boats, & our neighbors. Abby & Emma have learned so much from strolling (ex. learning what a stop sign reads & what to do when you see one, colors, animals, types of flowers & trees, songs & our neighbors & their names) And, I think, our neighbors look forward to seeing Abby & Emma every morning just like Abby & Emma look forward to seeing them. So, that is my FAVORITE place to stroll! Thanks for such a wonderful contest!!!

Sheena said...

Our neighborhood is not stroller friendly so thank goodness we are moving in a few months! The neighborhood we are moving to has a huge area for the kids to play and it will be perfect for me to (finally!) get out and get some exercise.

We are also going to be going to visit family out of town soon and it will be great to be able to get out with all the kids (between three cousin we will have 5 kids under the age of 4!) and be able to fit all the strollers in one van to save on gas. We three don't get out much nowadays!

Barbara Manatee said...

My favorite place recently to take the twinkies has been the zoo (got another trip planned next week!) but I also look forward to taking them on a garden walk at an estate in the city this week - they love to be outside and Miss Sarah LOVES flowers...so it'll be perfect - especially with the beautiful scenery!

Looks like a fabulous stroller!

Aren't you the queen of contests lately?!?!

Harris Boys said...

oh my goodness cheryl, you have really outdone yourself this time :) what a wonderful giveaway and something I could really use.

We have a graco duoglider but its not a side by side and the boys are getting way too big for it. Whoever is in the front is kicked constantly.

If I could name one place I would love to use this stroller it would be the BEACH. I love the beach and I can't wait to take the boys for the first time (next month).

What an awesome giveaway, thanks for letting me play :)

Cheryl Lage said...

I'm ever-so-glad to be able to make the stroller-to-strollees connection, but I don't deserve even a morsel of the credit for the giveaway. The crew at Chicco, and their generous team of "word-spreaders" -- they're the folks to be thanked! (And I'll happily pass along the appreciation...it's exciting to be a conduit!)

tovarena said...

Our twins pretty much go everywhere with us. But our favorite outing with them is to go to the park. They love to swing and people watch. It would be really nice to have a lightweight stroller like this one to use for those outings!

Goddess in Progress said...

Ooh, ooh, me too! :-)

I was going to come up with something cool and nostalgic. But you know what? Our favorite place is Target. We're there all the time, there's always something we need.

Also, love taking them out to eat for lunch. It's my favorite part about the fact that they're now on so many finger foods. I don't have to rush home for lunch! Grilled cheese? Great! Fried rice with tofu? Awesome!

Mommy of twin monkeys said...

I would have to say that our dream would be to go to the beach. Both Jamy and Malcolm have not gotten to experience going anywhere due to Jamy's cancer last year and his chemotherapy. We have been so caught up in being safe that we have not gotten to get out and see the world. Both Malcolm and Jamy have fallen in love with our mini pool and sandbox and I would love to see their little faces light up at the sight of seeing the great big ocean and the biggest sandbox ever! This stroller would be the icing one the cake for our first time family vacation. I know the boys would love to go for strolls on the boardwalk in style and comfort. And I know I would love to finally be able to do something as a family without fear of infection. Since Jamy has now been cancer free for a year and should have his immune system back to 100% we are excited at our new possibilities. So if it is the beach or just the local mall I know being able to get out in this stroller will be a new adventure for the four of us as a family!
Thanks!!!

Trisa said...

Well anywhere we can put them in a stroller is a favorite place. The babies love to look around and see the world around them. We recently took them to Disneyland and boy were they ever so enthralled to look at everything, only problem was we have the tandem stroller so one always had a better view than the other.

Thankss for the contest!

Gibson Twins said...

Wow that looks like a fabulous stroller!

I love taking my two with me on all kinds of errands.

They love to be on the go just like I do so we always make a day of it: we go to the outlets (they have duckies in the pond in the middle and would be so much more awesome to have two front seats instead of one!), the grocery store where they can watch all of the lobsters in the tank and where we count fruits and veggies and of course people watch!

We usually then head to Lowes and Target to see what we can find to keep us busy when we're home too.

Can't wait to check back in!

Lisa said...

What a neat giveaway, and good strollers are always so needed for Moms of twins!

Our favorite place to stroll is around our town. We live in a small town and we can walk to do most of our errands. We often go to: the pharmacy, the grocery store, post office, to get haircuts, the library, the park, the farmer's market, and just for walks through the neighborhoods. The boys always attract the attention and are pretty well recognized around town now! Its just so much easier to stroll than to pack the car and get in and out at every stop. AND with gas prices, we are saving money and our environment a little too!!
Good Luck to everyone!
Lisa

BoufMom9 said...

Oh wow Cheryl! This is fantastic! I sooo need a "real stroller". I couldn't afford a good one when the babies were born because Russ was out of work, so we got the Jeep umbrella and it is horrible.

We will be going to Twinfest in Ohio in August!!!! Our nanny from England is coming here to the US to travel on vacation with us (as a friend) and I thought it would be fun to do Twinfest again!
So, that is where I would be taking this awesome stroller!

The Burger Blog said...

Lisa, I want to come live in your town that sounds so convenient. I have thought about that so many times how nice it would be to just stroll them to the next place.

My stroller right now is very big and bulky and such a pain to try to fit in the little space behind the last row of our van. I have to hold it with one hand and close the door with my other hand really fast so the stroller doesn't fall out on my toes OR take off my hand with the door.

While we were at t-ball last week my 5 year old son was watching me load everything up so we could take them to Bible School and said, "Wouldn't it just be easier if they invented something you drive the stroller in and you didn't have to put them in the carseat again." I'm picturing looking my rearview mirror and seeing my cuties smiling at me in their stroller which is really a carseat....just snap the wheels into the floor...or something like that....hey Chicco you listening, my 5 year old might be on to something.

Okay....I kind of went off on a tangent there, but I don't really think I could pick a favorite place. We used to travel a lot before the babies, I have a friend in New Zealand we would love to go visit...so maybe the streets of Wellington.

But I suppose if I am being more realistic, I really love walking on the park bikepath with them. It's quiet and peaceful, they get to see the river, birds, and flowers. We get stopped by the people in the park of all ages who have the normal "twin" questions and in this atmosphere I am happy to tell them about our little blessings. A bit more relaxed conversation than the people who stop you in the grocery store to play twenty questions....gotta love them, but I have 20 things I need to pick up in 7 minutes before they decide they are done with the store.

Anyway we would love a stroller that is more convenient for our busy family and this looks like an awesome stroller.

I am new to the blogging world and am so excited about all the other twin moms I have met. This is such an exciting give away because I have been starting to research side by side strollers since my boys are about to grow out of the snap n go.
The place I look forward to taking my boys the most in the Chicco stroller is our neighborhood park. Now in the snap n go they can't see but straigh up to the sky. They love our dog and will get to watch him running around chasing a ball and all the other kids playing.
Thanks for having such a great giveaway and I look forward to sharing my life with everyone else via the blogworld.

Tracy said...

Oh my goodness, only one place? But there are SO MANY places I want to take my twins. Oh, the places they'll go.

I guess if I HAVE to pick one, I'd say the mall! I live in Michigan, and man-oh-man it's cold here in the winter. I'll get the go-ahead to exercise right around the same time as winter hits, so having a stroller will enable me to pack up the kiddos and take them to our local mall for mall walks! We have a great mall with an atrium and a kid's area, but even better, a Target! We can get exercise, visit with other mall walker, play and run errands all at the same time.

(I think I might have read somewhere that it's good to get your twins out in the stroller for practice early on? I plan to start my training as soon as I can.)

Laura said...

I don't want a twin stroller, for obvious reasons, but I saw that you had 19 comments and I wanted to be number 20 because it's cool to have 20 comments. (Though I would PERSONALLY never know it.)
Aren't you a generous blogger giving away stuff.

NancyH said...

I am new to the blogging world and love all the things i have found. I have 17month g/b twins and we love going for walks. The dog park, the store, the mall, any excuse to be out and about.

Kelly said...

Sad to say, but Target. Seriously.

We don't get out much. I was given another stroller but it is quite heavy, and I often pass up getting out just thinking of the whole experience.

Tom & Sheila Walter said...

This stroller looks wonderful. I love to just take my twins out strolling for a walk. We live in the country and it is great to be out in nice weather and see the world. It is a great way for them to learn and explore nature.
I have been referred to your blog from a friend of mine and enjoy reading it when I find the time!!!!

Jen C. said...

I love getting out of the house with my kids and we currently use our Snap N Go everywhere we go! My favorite place to walk is to our neighborhood park. My sister in law comes over here and takes my 2-yr-old and her 2-yr-old in a double stroller while I snap my twins in my stroller and we walk all over the neighborhood and to the coolest park EVER. It was built by the community last year in remembrance of a little boy who drowned and it has a toddler park and a park for older kids. It's so awesome. People always think my son and his cousin are twins too, so we get lots of stares and questions. We'll need a new stroller when they outgrow the snap n go. I think you should have the person who wins it do a review on your blog after they've used it so that everyone else will know the real scoop on it from a twin mom! It's so hard when I'm researching twin strollers online because some people love them and some hate them. This one looks groovy though!!

TheHMC said...

I don't have twins, but I do have 3 kiddos 3 years and under, and believe you me...I'm another mom that totally appreciates a double stroller!

Obviously I'm not entering the contest(already have a stroller, but that one you posted looks amazing!) but just..I don't know.. felt like commenting I guess. haha!

Donna said...

Having just celebrated our ONE year anniversary together, I'm gonna say it - anyWHERE, anyTIME I am with my precious babies, I am in MY favorite spot to be strollin!!

I don't know if it will ever wear off or grow old, but having watched them from afar, growing up for 13 months without me (during the adoption process), I still can't get believe they are only an arms' reach away!

This stroller looks kickin' and I would love to be out and about with them in it, sitting side by side (holding hands and playing!) instead of one behind the other and one not being able to see the world over the back of his brother's seat!

What an awesome contest, Cheryl! I've enjoyed reading all of the entries. Thanks so much to both you and the gang over at Chico's!

Donna said...

oops - make that "Chicco's!"

The Myers Family said...

Ok, i'm going to make this one short and sweet. Our favorite place to stroll these days in the new discovery green park in Houston, TX! This park is spectacular! This park is THE place to go. It has everything and them some. They have a lake, childrens playground, fun water/splash pad like things, art work, and restaurants! If you come to houston, you MUST put it on your list of places to go!

Check it our for yourself!
http://www.discoverygreen.com

Now, if you ask why we love this park...well, because it has EVERYTHING and then some. It's very kid oriented...well it's a park. AND it is designed with organic in mind...who doesn't want to help out and be kind to our air and land???

Thanks
Brenda

The Wood Family said...

WOW! This is such a great opportunity! Thanks you guys for offering this awesome stroller! One of our favorite places to go strolling is at a park nearby our house. It is so beautiful and has the greatest trails all throughout the forest. Our next BIG journey will be out trip up to Canada. I live in Columbus, OH and ALL my family lives on the west coast of Canada in British Columbia We are headed there in August. It would be the greatest gift to us to have a new, lightweight and of course stylish stroller to take along. And I love, love, love how they fold so compactly. Our neighbors actually just got this stroller and they really like it. :) My boys would look pretty cute in that little ditty!! Thanks Chicco & Twinsights!

Hip Twin Mama said...

OMG I would love to have this stroller, specially since we don't currently have one. We had a duo glider that was okay. Then I thought I had to be cool so I got sold it on consignment and that new Kolcraft red double stroller ,it is so bad I never even use it. This looks like an awesome stoller that we would love!

When my girls very little we would go to the mall to stroll. I know, not very creative, but there is so much for them to look at and so many different sounds. One of my twins had a protein allergy (which my MD insisted was just colic)she cried at least half the day. But strolling through the mall she would just look around and go to sleep. Sleepy time for them and relaxing time at the mall for me. :)

I used to love the front/back style , but now that they are bigger I think they would enjoy being side by side.

Brad & Alyssa said...

OMG I have been looking at these strollers all of the time and want one!!! But I'm sure everyone knows how money is tight these days!!!

Let's see----I LOVE taking the twins and their older brother to the zoo. My twins are 19 months old and absolutely love being in a stroller--I thank god for that!!

Also we live close to a golf course that has an awesome walking path, with little bridges and etc. There are always geese and etc in a little pond that you can walk right up to. Taking a walk with the girls is the best!!! Relaxing, fresh air....ahhh!!!

I'm crossing my fingers, toes and everything inbetween!!!

doucetbunch said...

My husband and I work so much that any time that the 5 of us are together is a special time. We love spending time with the kids and seeing their little faces light up when we go somewhere new. We are going to take a 3 day vacation later this summer to Seaworld and I can't wait to see their expressions/excitement.

The Brown Bunch said...

We love to go to the park and ZOO...Where else can you show your kiddos where the Wild things are....We have triplet girls that are 17 months and they love to get in and out of the stroller we have now, but it is broken.....I can't wait to take them again....

D'anne Dzon said...

Now that summer is in full swing, it's time to visit the amusement parks! This is where I would get the most use of the stroller. I am a single mother of 5 kids,and getting out of the house is a challenge enough, lifting our current double stroller that weighs more than the twins do! This stroller would provide such a relief and be a god send! Not to mention that this stroller is soooo beautiful, my twins would love to sit side by side now that they just turned 2 (Happy Birthday Girls).
I have read the Twinspiration book and absolutely love it, I have lived by it like it is the Bible! Great job Cheryl!
Good luck to all who enter!

the schirano triplets said...

this is the perfect giveaway for me since our double stroller is headed to the dumpster soon...it is falling apart :( my favorite place to stroll with the babies is outside...we can be going anywhere, but as long as we are outside they are happy as clams. they love to look at water while we are walking so my favorite place so far has been along lake michigan in chicago!

Tanya said...

Oh WOW! I would LOVE to have this stroller. I am the mom of four kids.. an 8 year old, a 6 year old and my youngest being 3 year old twins -Emma and Elijah. I love the outdoors and try to take them places as often as possible. I live 4000 miles away from any family and my husband works 10 hour days so it's usually just me with the four kids when we go out. I have a double stroller that I bought when my second child was born and it's sooooo incredibly heavy..it hurts my back just lifting it into the van. It's getting to be a struggle to open and close now due to it being 6 years old and the wheels often get stuck for no apparent reason other than it's age. A new light stroller would make my life so much easier..especially for trips to our absolutely favorite place...the ZOO!! We make trips to the zoo anywhere from 2 to 4 times a month and my kids LOVE it. I love watching their eyes light up when they are watching the animals. We easily spend 3-4 hours there every time we go and as you can imagine, little legs get tired and they sometimes want to take a nap. The stroller I have now is not a side by side and makes it difficult to recline the front seat for nap time. We also have a big park here that I used to go walk in when it was just me and my first child. I've been wanting to go back to walking there, but my stroller is just to heavy for me to even think about pushing up some of those little hills. I can't tell you enough how awesome it would be to have this new side by side and how much easier it would make my life when I take all the kids out by myself!!!

Chips and Salsa with Beans said...

Definitely Disneyland! They don't rent double strollers and even if they did they don't let you take them out of the park so you have to take your sleeping/exhausted child out of the rented stroller and carry them back to the car, hotel, or just walking around
Downtown Disney. The trams at Disneyland let you bring your strollers on as long as they are folded so you really need a lightweight stroller that is quick to fold down but sturdy enough to do the job. The Trevi Twin by Chicco looks like it would fit the bill perfectly! My twins have been asking to go see Mickey Mouse. I can't wait to win and plan our trip to Disney!

Thank you and good luck to all!

Laura Rucker said...

I guess my favorite place to stroll with my new 7 week old twins would be the mall. As a mom of a 6 & 4 1/2 year old boy singeltons that are 18 months a part I have always had a need for a great double stroller. I can not tell you how many I have been through with just my boys and now that our new b/g twins are hear I could really use a great reliable stroller. I love taking my kids to the mall to people watch and to find really great deals on clothes since I am dressing 4 now. A stroller that is easy to manuever and that can fit through isles would be great. Oh and I love the book Twinspiration. I won an authographer copy from my twins club and I read the whole thing while on bed rest.

Chris said...

I love getting out with my 9 month old twins! But it is hard! Especially when I am out alone. We waited a long time for our beautiful babies and now that we have them we love to incorporate them into our lives and take them wherever we love to go. As my husband said recently, it is 2 times harder to do anything with twins and takes twice as long, but everything is twice as fun!!!!!!!!! And it is true!
I love taking them to church because they get to see everyone that they know and love and play with the children of our Sunday school class, who are all around the same age. My jogging stroller doesn't fit there and I go to the church for a lot of activities! When I am alone, I put one in a single umbrella stroller, the diaper bag over the handles, and the other baby on my hip. I then push with one hand, leaving the other free. Thankfully, somebody usually comes to my aid eventually! I would love this stroller! Plus, I have Twinspiration and gave another copy to my friend with twins. Now, she loves it! Thanks for a great contest!

Jessica said...

That stroller is so nice! I would love to have something like that. Im 17 and pregnant with twin girls. Itd be nice to take them out for walks just down the road in the evening or to the track. Just to get out of the house since Ill pretty much be raising them in my bedroom. Then I wouldnt have to borrow my mom's stroller. She has twins also haha

AudreyandAdamsMom said...

The stroller is very nice, but that's not why I want it. I want it so that my children will be able to sit next to eachother to experience their experiences TOGETHER. We do alot together as a family, especially during our "family days".(aka. weekends...) And right now, my two children ride in two different single strollers. It would mean a lot to me to see them close. It's not so much where they go, but that they get there side by side. I want them to know and remember that. A destination is great, but the journey is greater.

smockmomma said...

we love taking all six children to museums. we finally took davis and donovan to the modern art museum for the first time. it was so much fun watching the older children show the boys their favorite pieces. to be honest, we don't really need a new stroller, so if i won i would donate it to our local "moms of multiples" group -- i just want the signed copy of Twinspiration!

David and Joelle Turner's Blog said...

What a fabulous giveaway!! I love taking my girls for walks. We are still getting used to it -- you know, when to fit it into our schedule, what to bring with us, how far to go, how long to be away, etc. But we are LOVING it!! I'd say my favorite place to stroll is around my parents neighborhood with them! Everyone in their neighborhood strolls in the evenings, its the place to be! So fun, I wish we lived closer to them so we could do it on a regular basis.

Mashel said...

I go just about everywhere with my twins, they love the stroller, but I guess the favorite place has to be our local zoo and aquarium. We have an annual pass and all my kids love to go there. The twins love to look at all the animals and especially love the fish.

lesleysmeshly said...

My most anticipated place we're going soon is Sea World in San Diego. After having a bad day with the babies at the mall I accidentally ran over our double stroller so this would come in VERY handy. =)

kamewh said...

Our favorite place to go is either the zoo or the park. As long as it is a nice day they are just happy being outside! Thank you for the giveaway!

Becky said...

While I do love strolling the boys around the neighborhood, and to the grocery store, the boys get a majority of their "stroller time" in on Sundays. We walk them to church in their snap-n-go... and then I leave them in it through the whole service. It does a nice job of allowing onlookers to ooh and ahh without being tempted to pick them up! I suppose eventually we'll have to get brave enought to put them in the nursery. But our boys are 9 months and were still not there yet!

My husband would have to say that our VERY favorite place to take the stroller is to grandma and grandpas house. Where we can leave the stroller. And the boys. And just be alone together.

mames said...

hands down...the park. any park will do. as long as it has the proper climbing apparatus and hazards that 15 month old twin boys love. i joke that instead of bar hopping, we now go park hopping. i do have to say i like it better than those old days.

stearns003 said...

As a single mom, I take my 5 month old boys everywhere with me! Shopping, coffee dates, walks... We've been to the San Francisco Zoo and Yosemite, but our most frequent outings are the walks downtown from our house. My boys love the outdoors, and a light, easy stroller would be wonderful for the 3 of us to get out!

Jess said...

Any place outdoors and out of the house! Time seems to just fly by and all the sudden it is a week later and you haven't even stepped out of the house! I'm a big fan of the beach and strolling along the boardwalk.

Meghan said...

My husband Chad and I live in Fredericksburg, Va and love to walk around downtown. When our twins arrive I'd love to take them on a downtown stroll in a comfy stroller (that's light enough for me to push) and Chad can walk our dog Lucy!

AmyS said...

We love just getting out of the house, doesn't matter much where-neighborhood, shopping, parks, beach-anywhere! I have two sets of twins 4months and 3years all of which are boys so we definitely need to get out as much as possible.

Andrea said...

Oh, the places we go!
When my girls were very young, the favorite part of our day was going to look at traffic. Yup, traffic. We'd walk to a busy location, sit on a bench on some grass nearby, have a cracker and a little something to drink and watch the world. Cars, buses and an occasional train kept them gleefully occupied for a while. Traffic doesn't do the trick any longer but we do most everything together and a new lightweight stroller to replace our well loved but well worn hand-me-down front/back stroller would be awesome. Thanks Cheryl for the terrific giveaway--and Twinsights. Its been a blessing to have found it!!

Andrea said...

I don't have twins but I have a 1 and a 2 year old. I could use this greatly!! I would love to take them to the park in a great stroller like this - we live just a short walk to two great parks and we go there pretty much daily - as well as nice walks through a lovely cemetery (I know - a bit morbid, but the two y/o can walk with me so it works good!) Thanks for the chance, the two y/o has to poop so I have to enter this now. LOL!

quinnmamma said...

I love to take my twins to a place called St. John's Pass boardwalk. It so pleasant to take them on a nice day. They love it bc of the bright colors in the store fronts and at the end of the walks we go and watch all the fishermen bring in fish. Also we get to see the fishing boats and personal boats going in and out of the bay and to make it even nicer people on the boat wave at the kids and that gets them excited.

CutlerTwins said...

We have a 4 year old and 2 month old b/g twins. I take the twins with me wherever I go. I love taking them in public anywhere. People seem facinated with them.

Cuddle Cottage said...

Our favorite place to stroll is at the park across from us, in the early morning. The weather's still pleasant then, it's quiet except for the sounds of birds and ducks, and it's a great way to start the day:)
I don't have twins, just one little sweetie, but I would so love to hand this fab Chicco over to a friend who is expecting her second baby (early November) - hot on the heels of her first! Her babies will be so close together; this would be a big help.

Angelique said...

We have a 2 year old, a 1 year old and are now pregnant with twins, due in January. We NEED a double stroller for our trips to the mall! Since we live in Florida, we tend to walk indoors because of the heat and unpredictable rain. This double stroller would be quite a help!

brooke said...

What a cool looking stroller and my twinadoes would look even cooler riding on those hot wheels!! We have an older model duo glider that a relative with twins gave to us, but there is one major issue...MY BOYS HAVE GIGANTIC FEET! Why is this a problem? Because they are at the age that I can let them in and out of their stroller based on the activities we are doing. When I try to lift them from their seats, their huge feet get tangled in the stroller and I have to rmove their shoes to get them out. Then I of course, have to catch them to put their shoes back on...This is a repeated process that is really starting to get old....This stroller would be ideal for our zoo trips. I would love to be able to see both of their faces lit up as they view the animals in amazement. They love to play on the playground equipment and go to the petting zoo, but then I have to go through the shoe drama. It's definitely not a huge problem, but if life could be made even a tad bit easier with this stroller, than I'm all for it. Thanks for offering this contest.

You are so cool and exciting to get to give away such a fab product! We have a Chicco single from when Ev was little, so I would LOVE to have a double for the lil Mr & Mrs!

Lemme see - our most common place to stroll is through our neighborhood, visiting friends in the evening. One of our favorite places to stroll is the South Side Works in Pittsburgh. It's just beautiful, and there are so many things going on there.

Thanks again for the contest!

I am actually posting for my sister who has 21 month old twins. I know one place she loves to go to with the babies is the park. Impossible to do without a stroller.

I would love to get a new stroller for my duo. We travel a ton and our stroller is about to die. Everyday for us is an adventure but since our current stoller has been on 24 flights, in 18 states and 2 countries it is definitely worn out.

Thanks we would love to win this one!!!

I would love one of these to roll the girls easily through the airport and Disney World...we finally scrimped enough to go to disney in February, and found out that a double stroller at Disney is $30 a day...That's $210 a week to rent...We went years ago with a travel system and had trouble getting on and off of Disney Transportation. If we won this, we wouldn't have to worry about lugging a heavy tandem, or the girls complaining about walking all day long. It looks so light and easy to fold, it would be perfect!

My favorite place to take my twins is the river walk. We live near the Detroit river and my munkins just love to see the sailboats and big tankers and when the whistle the nearly jump out of their seats to see. It Would be great to have a stroller the could watch from.

Wow, how am I supposed to choose just one place? Lol. We're all over the place. My favorite place to take Shane and Dylan is the zoo. The looks of awe and excitement as they look at the animals is priceless. Their jogging stroller just broke, so we're using the tandem. Which isn't TOO bad, except I always feel bad for the one in the back. They lose out on the view!

After finding out that we are expecting twins (June 28, 2009), this has been one of my many questions..."what kind of stroller should we get?" I am already the mother of a 2 1/2 year old little boy. Once the twins are born I think one of our favorite places to visit in the stroller will be the toy store! They can watch their big brother run around picking out toys for himself AND them!!

BTW, I am SO glad I found this site. I've been searching for a twin related website for about a month ago. I think I've finally found what I was looking for!!

hmm If I had to choose a place for us to visit it would have to be whichever Nana's house we didn't live near to. My hubby's family lives in Australia and mine lives in America so when we lay down our roots we'll definitely need a stroller that can handle the trip across the "pond" and back :) We've traveled once so far and our poor side-by-side Valco Double Delight suffered a broken lock clip so now we can't close it /sigh gotta love how rough they are on the airplanes with your stuff. But it was worth it so that my grandparents could hold the bubs for the first time :) So that would be my choice place - the nana that didn't live in the same country as us.

We LOVE getting out waving to strangers! Our favorite place is Old Lafayette Village, in Lafayette, NJ. It is an outdoor village with rural county charm! My husband and I had our wedding reception at the restaraunt there and I love to sit under the willow tree that we had our pictures taken on our wedding day (just FIVE WEEKS before we conceived the twins!!!)

There is a duckpond which the boys love, paved paths, lots of visitors and great stores to browse, shop (or destroy LOL!). We will stop for a treat at one of the many bakeries or ice cream shops. There are many visitors each day and the boys love to say hi!!!

I am planning to take my kids to Disneyland and I am positive that this stroller will be key to travel with. I have been researching for the best twin stroller for our family, but they are so many. It's overwhelming at times b/c of the choices and prices. I am sure my ds & dd would love traveling in this. Thank you for the opportunity to win. If I win, it will save me money and headaches.

As the daddy of 18 month old triplets, I often come home from work to a mommy that needs a break. (most of the time I need one too) I love to take my kids through the neighborhood. It's one of the few places we can go where we aren't some sort of spectacle / freak show. I can walk into animal house and turn around a pull the choo choo wagon in front of the back door and everything instantly goes right in their world. Nothing makes the worst day at work any better, any faster than a quiet stroll with my kids.

As a mom of triplets I am used to using a fairly heavy triple stroller (no way around that!) when I am by myself. When I have the pleasure of having another set of adult hands to help me, it's nice to use a double stroller and a single stroller to divide and conquer, so to speak. There's seems to be a stroller for every occasion, and I'd love to add this one to my arsenal!

I am a single mother of suprise twins! I was a college student trying to finish up my last year and a half of school and I fould out I was pregnent with tiwns being 22 years old. I had to stop school and plan to go back when my babies get older. I had baby Lexton and Brycen (both boys), at 37 weeks both really health (Thank God)! I have been really greatful for having relatives keeping all their car seats and cribs but i was only given a single stroller, and I don't have any extra money to spend on the double stroller. So when me and the boys go out one of the boys gets to be in the stoller and the other is in a baby bjorn. so i never get to go to places that i have to be on my feet for hours at a time because i am the only one with the two of them. i would love to visit the omaha zoo this summer with them and not have to worry about my back hurting all day or them being uncomfertable all day in the sun. This stroller would be appreciated more then just the day at the zoo, it would help me out for years to come!!
