Contours Optima Tandem Stroller Review

The existence of the Contours Optima Tandem Stroller will make parents have a different view regarding tandem strollers.

Total Comfort for Two

Parents have been faced with problems regarding tandem strollers especially those that have front seats and rear seats. While this type of tandem stroller is tempting, it has its share of inconvenience especially when the front seat is reclined. The Contours Optima Tandem Stroller offers a whole new experience for parents with regards to tandem strollers. It is designed to break the negative record of tandem strollers in terms of comfort for two.

While it features two comfortable seats for the children, how these seats are positioned is what makes it different.  This tandem stroller features six different seating positions for the kids. They can either sit facing each other; sit with their backs to each other, both seats facing forward, reclined positions at the same time and more. This is probably the greatest feature of this tandem stroller as it provides both kids comfort at the same time no matter what position the seats are arranged. Since there is a good space apart from each seat, there are fewer tendencies for the kids to bump each other.

Tandem strollers are convenient for moms but a tandem stroller with comfort features as this proves to be more convenient.

Advantages of Using the Contours Optima Tandem Stroller

  • This tandem stroller has a very large basket for storage space so heaps of shopping fits in the basket under the seats.
  • It is convenient for the parents because it is great to push around and can be maneuvered with just one hand at times.
  • Folding it is easy and it even stands upright on its own once folded.
  • This tandem stroller is very light to handle even if it is relatively big.
  • It has very easy options which make it very easy to assemble.
  • Arranging the seats are very fun to do because it has a few different options for the seating arrangement which means they can be moved in different ways: both facing forward or back or facing each other or back-to-back, etc.
  • This tandem stroller comes with an infant adapter and height adjustable seats.
  • It has a parent tray wherein parents are provided with a secure place to place their drinks or beverages while taking the kids out for a walk.
  • The parent tray is removable.
  • This tandem stroller also has removable cup holders for the kids.
  • It does not require one to remove the seats in order to collapse the stroller as it can be folded with both seats still attached.
  • The 5-point-harness and the canopies are height adjustable too.
  • This tandem stroller has a good wheel size which makes pushing the stroller, especially through any rough/rocky areas, nearly effortless as well as makes it easier to steer even if this is not a jogging stroller.

Disadvantages of Using the Contours Optima Tandem Stroller

  • One issue with regards to this stroller is the fact that the seats rock back and forth a bit when a child is in it especially when it is in recline or sit up position. It makes parents worry it would break eventually or that the plastic parts will break.
  • The size of this tandem stroller is an inconvenience because it is very huge and bulky. If one needs to fit this stroller in the trunk of the car, he or she may need to completely remove both seats from the frame.

Overall, the ease of using the Contours Optima Tandem Stroller is what makes this tandem stroller best for busy moms. Despite the big size of this stroller, the fact that it can comfortably accommodate two children is one thing that makes this tandem stroller something to consider for parents with two kids.
