Yes, we do think it’s a little insane how many prams and strollers there are in Singapore. But when you have to venture out with two kids under the age of three (usually on a daily basis), there’s no way around it. Baby wearing is a great idea, but not always ideal if you’re out for long periods (think about the backache at the end of the day!). Two single strollers just won’t cut it even if you tie them together (the strollers, not the kiddos).
Luckily, there are options for growing families in Singapore. Whether you’re expecting twins or welcoming your second or third child, there’s a stroller in this guide that will suit your needs.
COMPACT AND ADAPTABLE
Twins or no, the Bugaboo Donkey² (pictured above) is a sturdy set of wheels that can handle pretty much anything. This versatile ride converts easily from a side-by-side double to a single stroller, so you can use it even when you’re bringing out just one kid. The Bugaboo Donkey² doesn’t just grow with your kids, but it also offers plenty of luggage space for your diaper bag, grocery bags, stuffed toys etc. If you’re looking to lighten your load when out and about with the kids, this is one asset you can’t do without.
