Do you have triplets? Three small little ones? Then it may be time to invest in a triple stroller. Today we are reviewing a triple stroller, the Foundations The Trio Sport Sport Triple Tandem Stroller.
The Foundations The Trio Sport Sport Triple Tandem Stroller has an ergonomic handle, which makes the stroller easy to maneuver. It has a canopy that provides protection from both the weather and UV rays. The wheels are made from rubber, and are heavy-duty. It has an adjustable 5-point harness. There are three height positions so that children of different sizes can fit in this stroller. This triple stroller will hold children that are up to 40 pounds each. It has one cup holder, and a rear storage basket. This stroller will fit through standard doorways.
Not all strollers are the same. Each one as different features to fit your unique situation and family. I'll go over some of those considerations here so that you will have the information needed to pick out the best one for you and your children.
Not A Running Stroller
Being a runner and literally covering thousands of miles with a running stroller (even wearing one right out before replacing it) I will admit, I can't help but judge all strollers by a performance quality. So keep in mind that many of these strollers, including this one, are not made to be easily pushed and able to turn on a dime. It will take extra effort to push this stroller. It is what it is, which is a mode of transportation for taking 3 children places at a slow pace.
The small wheels are a big indicator that this will be harder to push than a performance stroller. Here is a comment about the ease of pushing this stroller,
"There's nothing really wrong with this except it is a bear to try to maneuver. So, so hard! And going over bumps? Forget it. I will definitely be losing the remaining baby weight pushing this around. Maybe I was just spoiled with my double jogging stroller and someone who's never had the joy of owning one would think this handles just fine."
Canopies Move On Their Own
A nice feature with this stroller is that the canopies all move on their own. That means that you can adjust each one for individual child taste and for shade. Here is one of the canopy comments left by a customer,
"It is sturdy and the canopies all move on their own so I can adjust for each child."
Easy To Assemble
I did not find any comments that said this stroller was hard to assemble. When something is a challenge to assemble, customers usually don't hold back on sharing that information with others so that they can be warned. But for this stroller, I only found positive ease of assembly comments. Here is one of them,
"Love this stroller - this was very easy to put together and is great to use. We actually brought two of these strollers for our family daycare. If I needed a new stroller, I would choose this stroller again."
Decent Price for a Triple
For a triple stroller, The Foundations The Trio Sport Sport Triple Tandem Stroller is priced fair. Here is one of the price comments,
"I am happy with the quality of the product for the price."
Able to Fit Through Standard Sized Doors
The nice thing about tandem strollers like this one, is that they can fit though tight places including standard sized doors. This is a great benefit because you won't have to unload all of your tiny passengers just to pass into a room or through a building. This is especially nice for when you have sleeping children that you don't need to wake.
Only 1 Solid Footrest
The back seat footrest is solid, but the middle and front seats are not. Here is one of the comments about the footrests,
"There are no foot rests for the middle and first seats so older children tend to push down on the cloth bottom area which could eventually cause it to tear if allowed to happen."
Other Products To Try
If the Foundations The Trio Sport Sport Triple Tandem Stroller does not fit your needs, there are many other products to try. Today I'll go over two strollers that you may be interested in: the Baby Jogger 2017 City Select LUX Double Stroller WITH LUX Bassinet and the Valco Baby Tri Mode Duo X Toddler Seat.
- The Baby Jogger 2017 City Select LUX Double Stroller WITH LUX Bassinet is $948.00. Although the price is rather high, this stroller has many unique features. This product converts from a single stroller to a double stroller, and then to a triple stroller with a glider board. You can add an infant car seat, pram, second seat, or bench seat if wanted. The seats are reversible, so that the baby can either look out in front, face the parent, or face the sibling. It has padded carrying handles, machine washable mattress, and a hand brake. Because it has a compact size and auto lock, this stroller is easy to carry, transport, and store. To fold, simply fold the seats and lift the sides to fold. If you are wanting a triple stroller that is easy to travel with, and will convert from a single to a triple stroller, this product is a good choice.
- The Valco Baby Tri Mode Duo X Toddler Seat is $129.99. Keep in mind that this product is only the seat. The stroller is sold separately. This seat will only work with the new DuoX stroller, not other Valco Baby Strollers. Since the DuoX stroller is a double stroller, this added seat will make it a triple stroller. It easily clicks onto the stroller frame, and is easy to take off. It will also fold with the stroller. This product is great for families with twins and a toddler, triplets that are 6 months and up, or three little children. If you already have the DuoX stroller, or are interested in buying it, this seat can be a great addition to the stroller.
The Foundations The Trio Sport Sport Triple Tandem Stroller is a tandem stroller that will fit 3 children. This stroller will fit through standard sized doors which is nice since you won't have to unload all of your children each time you go through a door. Keep in mind that this is not a running stroller, so it will be harder to maneuver since the wheels are much smaller than a performance stroller. It is easy to assemble and it has canopies that move independently. Only the back footrest is solid, so expect some wear and tear on the other material footrests. This stroller is priced well for a triple stroller. If you are wanting a mode of transportation on smooth surfaces, (not trails nor dirt roads), for 3 children this is a great choice.
