Guide Review - Graco Quattro Tour Duo Stroller Review

Have multiple kids that all need to be toted around? The Quattro Tour Duo Stroller is a great way to keep two kids together in one stroller, hit the road or shopping mall and have a good time without the hassle. The stroller is durable, has many features and doesn't cost a ton, which should appeal to many parents.

The Quattro Tour Duo Stroller is a definite step up from Graco's DuoGlider, with features including a slimmer design and a front seat that can hold up to 50 pounds. That virtually guarantees it will last through the toddler years – another money-saving perk. It also works well with Graco car seats in both the front and back positions.

To me, the sleek and compact design may be the most appealing feature. According to Graco, the Quattro Tour is 20 percent smaller than the company's DouGlider. This means you aren't going to take up the whole sidewalk or trail when out for a walk with your kids -- which is often a fear with double strollers. It's nice to keep it all in a straight line in front of you.

Unfortunately that also means it can make it a bit awkward to steer into turns or keep control on slopes, such as a driveway's entrance. Then again, I also really like the innovative handle bar that gives you the option to control the stroller in the traditional way or to use its extended grips to gain control of the unit. The foot brake is easy to use and there is also a swivel control on the front wheels to help you control the ride.

The kids fit easily into both seats and putting an infant carrier on the stroller is simple to click in safely. The three- and five-point harnesses, although a good safety feature, can be a little tricky to snap into place and adjust. There is also plenty of storage space for any of your essential on-the-go items.

The smaller size of the stroller also means it fits fairly easily into the trunk of a sedan -- a nice touch for parents who don't have big cars. Either way, it isn't difficult to fold up for storage or unfold for use.

There are 10 versions of the stroller, varying mostly in style and it retails between $239.99-$259.99.
