The Miracle TWIN stroller
Strengths: easy to steer with 1 hand, light-weight, large storage basket, great parent tray, can have 2 different carseats at the same time.
Weakness: a little bit of a twin-magnet for the gawking public and the basket can drag if too heavy.
love love love this stroller. i miss it already! this is a must for twin parents - especially if you were on any type of bedrest and have low muscle tone. it only weighs 11 pounds when not loaded with carseats and is so easy to open and close and load the babies in and out. can steer easily with 1 hand. this should be the 1st purchase for any twin mommy because it is instant freedom to take your babies out. because careful when your twins get heavier as the front seat can make the stroller a bit top heavy if you unload the back carseat 1st. also be careful on curbs. enjoy your babies! they grow so fast!

Deceiving Car Seat/Stroller Compatibility
Strengths: Appears to be convenient for having twin infants.
Weakness: This product does not spell out which types of infant car seats are compatible. It claims it is compatible with most major brands, but it is only compatible with specific models of a few brands.
DO NOT PURCHASE ANYTHING FROM BABY TREND. Customer service at Baby Trend does not answer phone calls but requires consumers leave a message for a 48 hour call back. Employees at Baby Trend are rude and supervisor always claims to be in meetings and unable to speak.

Great Stroller Overall for Twins
Strengths: Easy to manipulate through stores; lightweight; nice storage underneath; folds easily and extremely flat when folded
Weakness: Finding a car seat that fits
We have heard other people say that they didn't like this stroller, but we loved having this when our twins were young! You can take it into stores easily, (trust me, the ones where the twins sit next to each other are EXTREMELY hard to take to stores b/c you don't fit in the aisles!). Someone gave us the base, so we needed to find new carseats. All Babytrends fit nicely, but we did notice that not all brands fit. We actually took the stroller into the stores and used the carseats on display to see if they would fit. We found that Evenflo worked nicely and they are affordable (with twins things can get expensive!). The only thing we noticed was with the back seat, you had to actually push the snap into place, whereas in the front it snapped on its own. If you had a babytrend one, it would automatically snap into place. To us, this wasn't a big deal at all b/c the carseats were so affordable, and we were such big fans of the stroller base!

Must-have for twin parents who want to be on-the-go
Strengths: Folds to compact size, easy to unfold, easy to get carseats in and out of it, can steer with one hand, narrow enough to fit through any passageway or aisle. Underneath basket is roomy.
Weakness: Wheels kinda cheap (so suspension, so babies feel every bump). Front-most baby sits at kind of awkward angle (baby nearest handlebar lays with head lower). Still, I love this thing.
Have used it daily for 4 months. Initially I thought it felt kinda cheap in the hand and I wa s a little doubtful as to whether it'd hold up. I figured we'd use it for just very short distances (from parkinglot into stores, etc.) but in the end I've used it even for longer distances and babies have been comfortable. It *does* attract lots of stares since it's an interesting contraption but boy is it handy. It has made it so easy for me to get out and about with twins by myself. No bulk, easy to use, and away we go. I'll miss it when my babies grow out of it. We used Graco Snugride seats with it. For those wondering which other car seats it'll work with, you can find the product instructions online (google is your friend!) and they list explicitly what models of carseat will fit. Others might work, too, but you may need to jerry-rig it a bit.

Strengths: lightweight, easy fold, fits two graco snugride carseats (if follow directions for bar placement).
Weakness: huge basket underneath, but hard to get at once car seats are in place.
We are a military family stationed in Alaska. Didn't know when or where we would move after having the twins. (Also have a 2 year old). We were also having boy/girl twins. Didn't know how fast or different their weights would be. So, we did not want to commit to an expensive stroller. Thought this would be a great starter. For exactly that reason it has been wonderful. We also already had a snugride car seat from our first child and needed a stroller that worked with it. As long as you follow the directions in the manual it works perfect. I love this stroller (and how light it is). It also fits in the back of our Honda minivan with the third row up, and still room for groceries.

Couldn't have made it without this stroller
Strengths: Ease of use
This stroller holds your infant car seats for total ease of transporting twins! The storage underneath holds more than you would think. There's cup holders for parents or baby bottles........... all in all, it was 'a best investment'!

Stroller does not work with most car seats
Strengths: Good paper weight.
Weakness: Stroller claims it works with most major car seats but only works with a few very specific ones.
I was upset that stroller claimed to work with graco car seats, but after talking to Baby Trend was only compatible with the speicfic Graco Snug Ride. Baby Trend was difficult to contact and supervisor refused to return phone calls. I will never buy a baby trend product again.
