Foundations Trio Splash Stroller

 

This is just one of the triplet strollers I have reviewed on here.  I couldn’t include this triplet transport option on the regular triplet strollers page, because you can’t put newborn triplets into this stroller as all the seats do not lay flat.  This stroller however is a very competitive price and for slightly older triplets that do not need to be laid completely flat, this stroller should be considered.

Purchase: Foundations Baby Infant Carrier Trio Sport Tandem Stroller-Lime    $369.00 Amazon.com

 

The stroller can also be bought from Buybuy Baby in the USA and they will ship to Europe for around €70

Foundations Trio Triple Tandem Stroller  has a new baby brother – The Foundations Trio Sport Splash ! Super contemporary colours – lime, orange, red – all fresh and crisp giving the stroller a real fresh appearance ! But with all the comfort and convenience you would expect from a Foundations Triple Stroller, one of the cheapest on the market right now.  I wanted to include this into my Triple Tandem ( Inline) page but I have set a benchmark that all strollers included would be able to carry triplets from newborn (trying to save you having to get more than one stroller! ) Sadly this stroller cannot accommodate newborn triplets as the seats do not go down flat enough. Newborns should not be placed in strollers that do not recline to flat or almost flat as they do not have the head control to cope with being more upright. So this stroller would be ideal from around 6 months old.

Folded Foundations Trio Splash

The stroller weighs 55lbs, not an unreasonable weight for a triple stroller and can transport 3 children up to a weight of 40lbs each.
Unfolded stroller : 56″ L x 32.5″ W x 47″ H So this stroller will fit through a standard door frame !
Folded stroller : 49″ L x 21″ W x 20″ H Will fold easily and quickly.

Five Point Harness

A 5-point harness is a prerequisite for all strollers or pushchairs

The stroller seats have 3 recline positions, so as I said before, fine for 6 months or over !
The front seat does have a recline to flat, so this seat could accommodate a newborn, but when it is flat it reduces the space behind the seat so impinging on the child behind.
The rear seats recline 15-50 degrees, so perfect for toddlers to snooze.

Foundations Trio Splash handle, coated with padding

 

 

The Foundations Trio has a SafeBreak™ system that engages when handle is released which is an superb feature, as negotiating a triple stroller is no mean feat so added peace of mind!  The handle can also be altered in height depending on the person pushing, so no aching backs, just arms from pushing three babies !

Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 13.42.01The footbrake is linked to the handle and the wheels are rubberised to offer a shock absorbing, comfortable ride for your babies, along with suspension on all wheels.
All wheel suspension

The frame and material used in the Foundations are all wipe clean ! They will need it after an ice cream in the park!

The canopy helps protect children from UV rays and wind or rain. The rear seat canopy has a peep through window and is larger than the canopies over the front two seats so you can see through to check your babies whilst strolling.

There is a large storage basket under the seats for those little extra bits and pieces !
The Foundations Stroller comes with a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty.

Really this is an excellent stroller, very reasonably priced, even if you do have to import it from the USA if you live in Europe. It has all the comfort features that you would want in a triplet baby stroller, but remember only from 6 months old!

 

 

Complete Choo Choo Train Combo

 

 

Choo Choo Train Combo

This is the super cool Choo Choo Train Combo. A really cute way of transporting your triplets, if you don’t mind all the attention you will get !    The choo choo combo comes with the three cars, although you can buy a separate fourth one…..!   The cars are made of moulded plastic, with plenty of space so each child can sit in comfort in their own space with cupholders for their little sippy cups. The ChooChoo Combo is made by STEP2, a well known manufacturer of various ride ons to delight your children and simplify your life !

The Choo Choo Combo is available in red/blue/orange combination or red/white/blue combination, all brightly coloured and very appealing! I wish this had been out when my triplets were toddlers, I don’t think they would thank me for collecting them in this from their school now….! 🙁

The seats have underseat storage for any precious toy or snack that needs to come too.Screen Shot 2015-11-28 at 17.21.48

Each seat has a lap strap to secure your toddler into the seat, to ensure there are no tumbles.Screen Shot 2015-11-28 at 17.21.14

The wheels are whisper quiet and roll smoothly on pavements or roads.  It is tough to pull up hills but then anything would be difficult to push or pull up a hill!   Im not sure how long they would last however if you were continually travelling over rough terrain.Screen Shot 2015-11-28 at 17.21.24

The cars are bulky to store, they would take up the trunk space of any large car but then so would the stroller. This is much more fun for your toddlers, they get a great view of the soccer match or walks in the neighbourhood. Ideal for a stroll to the park or a church event.

Naturally this is not suitable for babies, I would recommend not before they’re 18 months old as the seats are not supportive, whilst they have seatbelts, they’re not the five point harness of the stroller seat.

To keep the sun of your toddlers, you can attach clip on umbrellas which serve the purpose perfectly.

Step2 Choo Choo Wagon and Trailer

CHOO CHOO TRAIN WAGON COMBO – RED, WHITE & BLUE USA EDITION by STEP2

UK version available in red/white/blue combo.

Having read all the reviews on the Choo Choo Wagon for triplets, I can thoroughly recommend this as an alternative to the stroller, especially if finances are tight.  This is not the mode of transport for younger babies or indeed for long journeys where your toddlers might fall asleep, but for the walks to kindergarten, stroll to the shops, visiting the zoo. The Choo Choo Wagon does have restrictions, it won’t be as robust as a more expensive stroller but will serve you well !
