As any parent will tell you, it’s hard wrangling a toddler out the door. Definitely even harder when you have two babies, either twins or close in age. Going anywhere with three babies is an even more colossal task. There’s no way a single adult could possibly hold on to three toddlers without some assistance. Sometimes, assistance comes in the form of a triple stroller. Triple strollers aren’t only made for parents with triplets, in fact, it’s more likely that you’re after a triple stroller because you have three similar aged children. Here is a collection of the best triple strollers on the market.
The Valco Baby Tri Mode Duo X is actually a double stroller that can be converted into a triple stroller by adding an X Toddler Seat (sold separately). This makes this stroller extremely suited for growing families that anticipate having a third child. The X Toddler Seat has a unique attachment, the third toddler seat is suspended in front of the original two seats. Large air tires make this stroller suited for rough terrains and nature. This stroller is suitable for newborns and toddlers up to 45lbs. Each seat as a large individual sunshade, and the 31.5” width will allow you to fit through doorways. As a double stroller, this Valco stroller offers many more features than standard triple strollers, such as a height-adjustable handlebar, removable wheels (for smaller size when folded up), front wheel settings (to set the stroller for everyday use, brisk walking or 45 degree swivel), and gate opening front bars. Some parents who were in the market for a double stroller find this stroller less durable compared to other models, however all parents who used this stroller for three children found this stroller one of the easiest to use.
For the active parents of three, this is the stroller to use if you’re going out jogging with your children.This is one of the few triple strollers where the three toddlers will sit in a row. The reason why this is not a more popular design for triple strollers is because the added width means the stroller will not fit through most doors. However, the added width, makes the triangular shape of the stroller perfect for outdoors stability. This stroller is designed specifically for jogging, so the front wheels are fixed and will not turn. This stroller has both hand and foot breaks. Rather than plastic, the wheels are air tires, which also help with shock absorption. The babies each have an individual seat, however the sun canopy is one piece that goes over all three toddlers. Luckily, the sun canopy has three individual peek through windows on the top so you can let light through when needed. This triple stroller comes with numerous pockets and under seat baskets for storage. While the stroller can fold down, it is still rather bulky and large due to the size of the wheels. Parents have had problems with the front wheels, so be sure to check the levers and tighten the screws holding the wheels in place. As the front wheels don’t turn, make sure you don’t force the stroller when turning, as this could cause the light metal frame to bend.
This Peg Perego stroller is one of the only convertible triple strollers on the market. Designed as a long, wagon like chassis, with extra large storage basket on the bottom, that three infant car seats slot into. The car seats slot into the chassis facing the stroller-pusher, so you can see all your babies at once. Once you have the chassis set up, your toddlers can go straight from car to stroller with no fuss at all. The provided car seats are the Peg Perego Viaggio 4/35 Infant Car, which seat babies from 4lbs to 35lbs (or 32” tall). Even if you don’t have a car, the removable seat design makes it easier to load up and secure each of your babies individually at a comfortable angle. The large wheels, suspension and central braking system make this stroller easy to maneuver, however, the stroller weighs 65.5lbs without any babies in it. Alternatively, you may wish to purchase the pop-up seat version of the Triplette Piroet Stroller. Instead of three baby car seats, this triple stroller comes with three of the Peg Perego Pop-Up Seat. These are seats designed especially for a range of stroller from Peg Perego. They seat children up to 50lbs, and can be forward or rear-facing. This seat can fold down to a smaller size, and the backrest and footrest on this seat can also be adjusted.
Although this stroller collection may seem pricey, you can also consider purchasing the chassis independently, and then adding the appropriate seats you need. This is also an ideal stroller to consider if you already use products from Peg Perego.
Joovy is a well-known baby goods brand that makes many double strollers. Naturally, their take on the triple stroller looks like a variation of their standard double stroller. At only 21.5” wide, the Big Caboose will fit through doorways and go down supermarket aisles. The two tiered front seats will seat toddlers up to 40lbs, and a universal car seat adapter is provided for use with newborns. Seats also come with trays and sunshades. The third child can sit or stand on the platform under the handles. If the third child is still too young to sit or stand on their own, Joovy also sells a rear seat that can be attached in place. There is a large storage basket underneath the seats so you can easily carry all the things you need for three toddlers. When folded, the Big Caboose is 14” x 21.5” x 63”. Bear in mind, that the weight of three children, plus the streamlined, slim design of the Big Caboose, means that turning or going downhill with this stroller will require more strength and effort.
This Child Craft triple stroller is one of the most affordable options on the market right now. The three stroller seats are all aligned in a row, with individual sun canopies and a storage basket below. Unfortunately, as the minimum recommended weight for this stroller is 15lb, you can not use it with newborns or babies who can not yet sit up by themselves. This stroller folds easily, and at 32.5” wide, can still fit through many doorways in public places. Like airport luggage carts, this stroller requires pushing down on a steel bar to release the brakes and get it to move. While this means that the stroller is less likely to accidentally roll down a hill, it does require more strength and dexterity to use and turn this stroller.
