My DDs are 8yr (59 lbs and 52" tall) and 5yr (40lbs and 42" tall) I am considering renting from Kingdom Strollers because of the better price and more comfort compared to the strollers in the parks.
However, I am wondering if the Double City Elite will have enough leg room. By looking at the photo it seems like there isn't much room for their legs. The foot rest seems really close to the seat. The Mini GT, however, looks to have more leg room than the Elite. The foot rest appears to be lower down for more room for their legs.
Has anyone seen these in person before to make this comparison for me?
I am really not looking forward to hauling this big double stroller on and off the buses, but I am guessing this is my only option. Renting in the parks just seems to be silly to pay more money for a less comfortable stroller. But then again I am a little worried that these Baby Joggers will look like a "baby stroller" for my eight year old
. She won't mind what she rides in as long as she is comfortable. My eight year old is a big complainer when it comes to being tired and uncomfortable!
Well, in all honesty, most strollers are "baby strollers." You 8 year old will be in a "baby stroller."
My 4 year old is 44" tall and her knees are up to her chin in our double stroller, (I also have a 2 year old) I can't even imagine cramming a child 10" taller into one. We are seriously considering even taking the double this year. My 2 year old needs one, he still naps. (we have a Peg Perego Aria Twin) Not to mention, have you thought that you are going to be pushing 100 lbs of well rested kids around the park? That will be no mean feat.
In all honesty, I wouldn't even take a stroller, much less two, or a double. I am thinking with the size and age of your kids you will need a really big jogger, or a special needs stroller. Most standard strollers are not made to accommodate 8 year olds.
