strollers for big kids

We are heading down in couple of weeks and buddy who is going with us has an almost 7 yr that is about 85lbs. I know that sounds large but hes tall too, almost 5feet already. Although hes big and has lots of energy, doesnt do strollers anymore, just thinking of last minute rentals (besides the park ones) for long days and late nights. Im taking mine down for my regular(lol) sized daughter who is 4 months older, 1foot shorter and 40lbs lighter.

I know of the new approved places, but on their websites they dont have any strollers for larger kids.

Sorry am a little confused. You want a stroller for a seven year old? Please forgive me if I've misunderstood, but can't they walk?

You will probably find that the kids have far more energy than you give them credit for. There's plenty to distract them from getting too tired and it not like they will need to nap in the stroller at seven years old.... So let them walk and you all rest up as needed.

At aged seven, my kids would have been horrified to be put in a stroller.

Also at nearly five foot, one child is almost the same height as me and you could not pay me enough to sit in a stroller. Sorry if that's mean... If the kids have a disability, then that's a different story...

I am surprised at the roughness of these responses! OP has a legitimate question - bullying her for her choices is not what I've come to expect from this forum.

OP - there is a large stroller with capacity for 100lbs at orlandostrollerrentals.com. I would think, however, that any of the park strollers would be OK for your 7 yr old. He will probably not use it that much, but I understand you wanting to have a backup plan.

Good luck and enjoy your holiday!
