View Full Version : Babystyle Graco Duo Glider
03-29-2005, 06:59 PM
I am considering buying a double stroller off Craigslist that is advertised as a one year old graco duo glider babystyle exclusive. I went to babystyle.com to find out more info and they do not appear to sell it anymore.
I only have one baby but we need a double for the babysitter who also babysits a neighbor baby. I know that this board is not a big fan of graco but I was hoping someone may be familiar with the stroller. The reason I like it is because it has air tires and seems pretty streamlined. The guy is selling it pretty cheap too.
All I can tell from the picture is that it is light grey and has air tires. Anyone know this stroller?

Well......I am one of those people who is "not a big fan of Graco" (understatement of the year). :) This comes from my experience with my aunt's DuoGlider, which. was. horrible. Her twins are two now, and I used the stroller several times with them, as infants and when they were older as well. It was so bulky, and heavy, and hard to turn and steer (got worse as they got older and heavier), that I was afraid to go into stores because I felt like I would just start knocking things over. Not that you could do much shopping with it, since with that huge bunch of plastic in your trunk there would be nowhere to put your bags........
HOWEVER....now that I have said all that, if this stroller is going to be for the babysitter and will NOT be the primary mode of transportation for your kiddo, it would probably be fine. I can totally understand you not wanting to spend big $$ on a stroller that you don't really need for your personal use all the time and which may not (probably won't) be the right one for you if/when you have baby #2 and need your own double. Air tires are cool, too, especially 8" ones. :)
You can read a bit more on eopinions:
There are a couple reviews there that you might find helpful. You could also try putting in "DuoGlider Air 7936" into a search engine and see if that gets you farther.
Bottom line: If the price is good, and for your purposes the shortcomings of that stroller are acceptable, I would say snatch it up, and give it to your babysitter with a big bow on top. :)

Thanks Sarah. I think that is the stroller or at least one pretty similar. Knowing the name helps a lot in doing research on it. Looks like it may be okay so long as we don't need to put it in and out of the car or manuver it around stores. Just use it for walks in our neighborhood which has mostly strait smooth sidewalks.
