View Full Version : Combi twin or Zooper Tango ??? Have 5 month old twins
03-08-2006, 03:41 PM
I am looking for a double stroller for twins. I have a double stroll air carriage - huge, heavy, but love it for neighborhood walks. I am looking for the mall crawler - lightweight, compact, etc... I saw the new twin sport savvy at BRU the other day in Mango and I was impressed. The only thing I didn't like was no child snack cup holder. Otherwise I would have bought on the spot. Not sure what the difference is between the sport savvy and the savvy EX model....does anybody know? The only other double SBS - I DON"T WANT A TANDEM for sure...is the Zooper Tango - haven't seen this one in person anywhere - but also no snack / cup holder.....anyone have any thoughts or suggestions. I would appreciate it....

I recently bought one of the Combi Twin Sports from BRU for my 22 month old twins. I like the fold and the weight of it, and it doesn't steer all that bad. The only differences I could see between it and the Twin Savvy EX was the canopies are a little smaller, there's no drink holder on the bumper bar, and you can't use a infant carrier with it. Since my kiddos are older, I didn't think the EX was worth another $100. If mine have to have a snack while we're out, I use the Snack Traps. My guys are fighting like crazy in the SBS right now, so it may go back. Overall, I think it's great for the mall/quick trips, etc. I definitely liked it better than the Aria Twin I used to have.

At 32 inches, I think the Tango is just too wide.
With singletons, if you hit a door you couln't enter, you could have the older child walk while you got it together. It would be a pain, but you could do it. With twins, what are you going to do? Hitting a doorway through which you can't fit is just, like, Game Over.
I have several places I have BARELY managed with my 29" MBUD. Another 3" inches and forget it.
I'm not a big fan of snack trays, so I don't know who has them... can't help you with that.
I had an Aria Twin when my twins were about 9 mo and it was very aggravating. I liked the size/weight/basket, but it isn't very maneuverable.
I have a Marco Sky which is interesting with twins from 6 mo of so. VERY small footprint, but it is a tandem. There are a few for sale on SWAP right now. I also used a E3 with my twins.
Really, tried and tried to find a lightweight for running around, but nothing ever really satisfied me. The MBUD always worked its way back into the trunk.
I like the Mac Twins OK.

Thank you both for replying. I can't believe how much time I've spent researching double strollers..I appreciate all the feedback.

I have a tango and LOVE it. Yes its heavy but you get what you pay for. Well worth it. I've yet to have trouble getting through a door. SO happy w/our tango.

I've been eyeing the Tango for a while. It's really come down to the Tango and the Jane Powertwin for me. The Tango is more in my price range, but DS isn't due until August so I have a little time.
The new 2006 Tango is much lighter than past versions at 26 lbs. They can be found on Target.com and it says on the website that you can return to the store. I am thinking about ordering one and testing it indoors and if it doesn't suit us, I'll bring it back to my local Target. I've only heard goos things about the Tango from people who actually owned one.

I also have a Tango and while I LOVE it, I just don't use it. DS1 LOVED being in his single stroller, but with the double he just wants out. So I've just been using the single for DS2.
And while it is a bit wide I have had NO problems in doorways. I've taken it to a few malls, Dr offices, and a local outdoor strip of stores with very very narrow doorways, it was a very tight squeeze, but we still fit.
I'm thinking of selling mine, but have no idea how to ship something that big!
I know that consignment stores wouldn't really offer me much even though it's in GREAT shape.
Hope you like it, if you decide to get it.

I have a Tango, with 6 month old twins and a 2.5 year old DS.
So far, I've loved it. Fine for any shopping. Great on walks. It maneuvers wonderfully.
I picked it over the Combi because the seat is a bench, and in a pinch, I can seat DS between my girls.
Yes, I've bumped into the sides of doorways, however, I did that with my single stroller, too.
Reclines easily. Love the extras (sunshade, rain cover) and have gotten use out of all if it.
Steers one-handed very easily, too. (A must when carrying DS and pushing the stroller!)
