Kolcraft Contours Options II Tandem Stroller Review & SILENT AUCTION

Having two children is definitely harder than I ever imagined. Going anywhere is nearly impossible, but when I do decide to be brave, I want to make the adventure as easy as possible. Having a great double stroller has made me so happy and venturing out a little easier. I am in love with my Kolcraft Contours Options II Tandem Stroller and with all of its cool features, my husband and kids love it, too.
Check out some of its amazing features:
  • Seats easily reverse to create 6 different stroller options: children can both face parent, face each other, face forward, back to back, with front seat only and the back for extra storage, or with an infant car seat.
  • Infant car seat attachment fits most car seat brands on the market. Additional car seat attachment is sold separately to accommodate twins!
  • Both seats recline for infant's comfort
  • Easy-reach child swivel cup holders
  • Removable iPod® Dok with speaker plays baby’s music anywhere
  • Steering with two 8" front single swivel & 10" rear never- flat wheels
  • Easy-trigger fold and convenient Free-Stand™ allow the stroller to stand upright!
  • New easy-reach tray is closer to the parent and more accessible, with an open-air compartment and deeper, ventilated cup holders
  • Other children can walk & use the hold-on handles
  • Infant head rest protects newborn's head
  • Adjustable canopy can be raised or lowered to the height of your baby
  • Large storage basket
  • Height adjustable 5-point harness for safety and padded sleeves for comfort
Being able to switch the seats around is so fun! You can make your children face each other for entertainment, face away from each other when entertainment turns to fighting, face mommy while they want to chat, or face forward when they want to see the world. Even my toddler loves to ride around in this luxury vehicle.
We love the huge storage basket, especially when we are shopping. I love all the cup holders, how easy the stroller is to steer, how compact it is for a double stroller, the comfortable straps on the five point harness, and how easy it is to snap an infant car seat in and how secure you can make it.
My only complaint is that you have to take the seats off to collapse it small enough to fit into my trunk. Fortunately, this process of either setup or taking apart only takes about a minute or two.
One fun feature that I have never seen on any stroller is the included iPod Deck with speaker. You just plug you iPod in and your whole family can jam to music while strolling. This is absolutely my new favorite stroller and you can't beat the $279.99 price. That is, unless you purchase it during a silent auction to benefit K.I.D.S. :)

From the K.I.D.S website,
"K.I.D.S. pioneered a unique charity model more than 25 years ago that today aligns hundreds of companies with more than one thousand leading local agencies in the United States and Canada. 85% of our donations are distributed to agencies in the U.S. and the remaining 15% to countries abroad. This alliance donates children's clothes,books, toys, and juvenile products… and brings hope… to children and their families at risk."

All donations will need to be sent to once the silent auction is over. The highest bidder will be asked to forward me their receipt and shipping address which will be passed to Kolcraft.
