    Phil & Teds

    I want to hear about this stroller from people that have it. I have already seen it in the store and i know how it turns and like i have tested it out and even put the kids that will be in it in there but i want to know how you like it and how easy it is for you to use. And do you have to have the smaller kid in the back? and if there is only a kid in the back will it tip and so on... It is a lot of money to spend if it does not work for me

    Re: Phil & Teds

    Are you thinking about this stroller for the twins?

    Are you thinking about the E3 single with doubles kit?


    Or are you thinking about the Twin E3?


    I'm not sure how much use you would get out of the E3 with doubles kit. If I recall correctly, the second seat only holds to 33 pounds when used on the back. I believe it accommodates to 44 pounds when used on the top, but the other toddler would much like having his brother sitting "on top" of him, would he?

    If you are thinking about the Twin E3, I would consider some other options. The stroller only holds 88 pounds. There are other twin strollers that have a higher weight limit. I would consider those.

    Just an FYI:

    This is the stroller that is replacing the E3.

    Re: Phil & Teds

    Yes it is for the twins and i do not think 33 pounds will happen for a while. Jack is 20 pounds at 16 months. O and yes i want the one that is single or double for when i do not want a double so i do not have to have 2 strollers in my car. What is the difference with the new one you posted patriot?

    Ah. Got it. I didn't realize the twins were so little. For some reason I thought they were closer to 30 pounds. I'm not sure where I got that idea.

    I'm not sure what the difference is with the "new" stroller. I just found that noted on a website and thought I would post it. I don't really know what the difference is. I will go research it.

    WOW thank you. I think i might be getting it. I just like it so much and i sometimes do not need a double sometimes do. So i like it for that reason.
