We bought a stadium duo when my second grandchild was born. The eldest child was around 30 months and not quite ready to walk all the time. We had the Graco sterling and liked it so when our friends offered us their American version of the stadium duo we took it.

The stadium can be used with the car seat to make it into a travel system. Usually the eldest child would sit at the front which semi reclines and the car seat or the younger child would be seated in the back which completely lies flat. Even with a heavy toddler in front we found this easy to push. The only downside is that when you have a car seat on the back you can not see the front passenger. The back seat lies completely flat and a little flap with velcro flips up to make a cozy carrycot which we used with the babys feet facing us and his head forward. This meant we could keep an eye on the front passenger. The shopping basket is huge, you could fit a weeks worth of shopping in there!
On our newer UK version we had two babies 11 months apart and when the youngest child got to around six months we swapped them around. Both children could still get a view forward, and it was slightly easier to push with the hevier child at the back.

Our American version was different from the UK version in that it folded with one hand, no extra safety feature just turn the handle and push. At the time the UK version did not have removable seat covers which our did making it easy to keep clean. The UK version was also a bit narrower, even so ours fit into the boot of our corsa, amazing! The American version had three point harness not five but we had no problem with this. This pram is heavy to pick up but I think this is the price you pay for a sturdy pram.

I think this is a great pram for those of you with a new baby and a toddler. It looks like it would be heavy to push but it is easier than a side by side buggy. Tipping it up and down steps and kerbs is a little heavier but I had no problem with this. The fact that you have a travel system and dont have to take a baby out of a car seat to put them into a double buggy is a lifesaver when you also have a toddler to deal with. The other thing thats good is that unlike side by side prams the toddler can't touch, poke or slap the new baby like they can in a side by side buggy. In a side by side buggy we found that the heavier child made the pram harder to push because of the uneven weight distribution and caused uneven wear on the pram unlike a tandem.
We are once again looking for a double buggy and we are almost certainly going to buy another of these. We have had the Graco duo lite and a Century double buggy neither of which were a patch on this one.
I have seen a childminder with two of these fastened together with price lionheart buggy joiners, She pushes four children around by herself!!!
