And the Winner Is: Bugaboo Donkey 3

Chances are, if you’re in the market for a double stroller, you’re either expecting twins (congratulations!) or have two children close enough in age that they both need a seat in your stroller. Or maybe you’d like to have the option to switch into a double stroller in the not-so-distant future. No matter your reasons, the Bugaboo Donkey 3 has you covered. This stroller grows with your family in the most genius ways. It goes from single to double mode in seconds. And if your family keeps growing, a ride-on board (sold separately) will tote another tot. It’s an editor favorite and a Best of Baby winner for best double stroller for the second year in a row. Thanks to a series of updates, the version 3 is better than ever.

What We Love

• The Bugaboo Donkey 3 is a true unicorn as far as double strollers go—it’s the only one on the market that adjusts from a single to side-by-side double

• In single stroller mode, you can stroll about town with baby in a bassinet or seat and a generous storage basket alongside them, perfect for toting groceries

• In double stroller mode, two bassinets fit side by side, with improved front pockets, ideal for stashing wipes; a seat and bassinet fit facing one another to help grow the children’s bond over time; plus, the switch from single to double is so easy, you can toggle between them throughout the day for ultimate flexibility

• The side-by-side seat configuration allows for an easier push than in-line options; the Donkey can be maneuvered one-handed and, despite what you might think, it’s narrower than it looks, fitting through most standard doorways

• Foam wheels are extra durable, handling all terrains from snow-filled streets to cobblestones with ease; they swivel too for ultimate maneuverability, and a tight turn radius and adjustable handlebar round out the driveability

• Seats recline easily for naps on the go, while an oversized canopy with improved peek-a-boo window and breezy panel for hot days offer superb sun protection

• The stroller folds easily into a one-piece, self-standing fold or a two-piece, compact fold
