The Sibling Stroller: Essential for Growing Families

When your second child arrives, a sibling stroller becomes a necessity. These strollers accommodate two children simultaneously, offering convenience and efficiency for parents.

Why Sibling Strollers are crucial

  • Dual Functionality: Allows you to push both children at once, freeing up your hands.
  • Versatility: Can be used with various combinations of bassinets and seats.
  • Cost-Sensitive: High upfront cost makes renting a more attractive option.

Types of Sibling Strollers

Side-by-Side Strollers:

  • Example: Bugaboo Donkey 5 Duo
  • Pros: Equal view for both children, easy interaction.
  • Cons: Wider, can be harder to maneuver in tight spaces.

Tandem Strollers:

  • Example: Uppababy Vista V2 with RumbleSeat
  • Pros: Narrower, easier to navigate through tight spaces.
  • Cons: The child in the back may have a restricted view.

Choosing the Right Sibling Stroller

When selecting a sibling stroller, consider these factors:

  • Weight and Size: Ensure it’s easy to push and fits through doorways.
  • Ease of Use: Look for features like one-hand folding, adjustable handles, and ample storage space.
  • Safety Features: Check for sturdy harness systems, reliable brakes, and quality build materials.

The Limited Use of Sibling Strollers

While sibling strollers are incredibly useful when you have two young children, they are typically only needed for a limited time. As your older child grows and becomes more independent, you’ll likely switch to a more compact stroller or a lightweight buggy with a buggy board. These options are easier to handle and more convenient for everyday use.

Renting Sibling Strollers: A Cost-Effective Solution

Given the high cost of sibling strollers (around 13 000 SEK), renting from offers a practical solution. Here’s why:


  • High Purchase Cost: Avoid spending a large sum on a stroller you'll only need for a short time.
  • Rental Savings: Pay only for the period you need the stroller, saving money.


  • Growing Needs: Swap strollers as your children grow and their needs change. Start with a Bugaboo Donkey 5 Duo and transition to a smaller stroller with a buggy board.
  • Short-Term Use: Perfect for the first 8-12 months when you need a sibling stroller.


  • Hassle-Free: Avoid the inconvenience of reselling or storing the stroller. Simply return it to
  • Top Brands: Access high-quality brands like Bugaboo, ensuring your children get the best.
