looking for recommendations for a back up stroller for us to keep in the car when our full size one is not warranted, like a quick run into a store.

something like an umbrella type but for twins, doesn't need any frills size when folded is probably most impotent side we will be keeping it in the car probably at all times, even when the full size stiller is in there.

 

the twins turn one next week, amazing how time flies

a double umbrella is what we use.  The sun shades aren't great, so we usually don't take it for walks, more just errands and other things inside.  Folds up super quick, lightweight, we stick in on the floor of the van by under their car seats.

 

My twins turn one in January.  I can hardly believe it.  Time really does fly!

The Maclaren Twin Triumph folds up to an umbrella size.

Peg Perego's Aria is a side by side double that folds up small, but I found it hard to push with bigger twins in it.  We use 2 Maclaren Triumphs sometimes (our twins are almost 3), and they are wonderful.  A friend has a double Maclaren, and I'd definitely second the recommendation for that Twin Triumph.
