I am trying to buy a good stroller (that can help with 2 kids, 6 and 3) while in Europe this Spring.
Have any of you tried/used any brands that you can highly recommend?
Where exactly are you going in Europe? I live in Europe and never see side-by-side doubles. They just won't fit through narrow doorways. Remember, there's no ADA laws in Europe. Doorways don't have to be wide enough for a wheelchair. There's curbs, stairs and other obstacles.
And be prepared that everyone is going to look funny at you. I can't imagine a European parent pushing a non-handicapped 6yo in a stroller. Most children are out of strollers by age 3 even. In my area, preschool starts at 2.5 years of age and kids walk to school (with their parents, of course).
Why not try a single stroller with an attached buggy board or Peg Perego with steps on the back that your 6yo can jump on. Although you will have to watch the weight limit. Usually those are for a 2-4yo to be on the back.
