If you are using it frequently, then you have to go for a design made from durable and strong materials. Such a design will last for manx years. You can even resell it when you are no longer using it. 

Consider the comfort level

How comfortable and relaxing your babies will feel when on the seats depend on the seat itself. If the seats are cushioned, your babies will feel relaxed and comfortable. It is also advisable to look for a design with reclinable seats. If the seats are reclinable, you will be able to set it to suit the needs of your babies.

Consider other features

Other features that you should consider is the maneuverability, mobility and portability of the product. Some products are very heavy and thus difficult to carry or convey from one place to another while some are available in a lightweight design. The wheel/tire system is another feature to check because it determines the mobility and maneuverability.
