This fantastic tandem double from Chicco does it all, and does it well. If you're planning to use the popular Chicco Key Fit infant car seat, you don't even need an adapter to create a travel system. The infant seat just clicks right into the stroller. The rear seat also accepts an infant seat, so you can easily accommodate newborn twins without buying any extra car seat adapters. The seats also recline independently, and they lay flat, so the actual seats are suitable for small babies, too. The basket underneath is easy to access when the rear seat is raised, plus the manufacturer included a zipper at the back so you can get into the basket when the seat is laying flat, too. It has cupholders for everyone, and a parent console at the top. It folds easily with a one-hand trigger and locks closed on its own. Holds 40 pounds in each seat. Weight - 34 pounds. Dimensions - 47 inches by 23.5 inches by 45.5 inches. Approximate cost - $300.
