For a parent of two, it’s almost essential to invest in a stroller that accommodates for both children. Many of these types of strollers exist and, quite frankly, there are a ton of terrific choices for you (if you fall into this category) to choose from. One of those terrific choices, I assure you, is the Graco Roomfor2 Click Connect Stand and Ride Stroller.
Terrific Seating Capacity
When discussing top-of-the-line strollers, especially for the Click Connect, it’s always good to start with the seating capacity. After all, I believe this is among the most important features to look for. This stroller is ideal for you to run errands and walk with both of your children. One of them can sit in the back while the other one sits in the rear. It’s designed to hold children of up to 50 pounds. This doesn’t have to be the combined weight of your children, though, as both the front and the rear seat can hold a child of up to this weight.
Many Seating Options
The several different seating options of the Roomfor2 stroller will accommodate for infants and older children alike. It’s compatible with all Graco Classic Connect and Click Connect infant car seats, making it suitable for infants. For some of your older children, there is the option of sitting, laying and standing. On the front seat, there is a multi-position recline feature that will allow your child to lay fully flat. If they would rather stand, though, on the rear seat there is a very sturdy platform (which is padded for comfort). I don’t know how picky your children are, but you should be able to find a seating option that satisfies each of them.
Simple Clean-Up and Storage
What’s awesome about the Click Connect Stand and Ride Stroller is when you are done using it, it’s very simple to store away. Assuming your kids will make a mess, for your convenience both of the seat cushions can be easily removed and machine-washed in cold water (make sure you run them on a delicate cycle, though). Also, the frames of the stroller can be washed with warm water and soap. Once you’re done cleaning it, it’s very simple for you to put it away in storage. Designed with a one-handed fold storage system (which is exactly what it sounds), it locks in for easy storage.
I believe I can safely say that the safety of your children is the utmost concern. With this in mind, you will take great comfort when I tell you that Graco designed their stroller with this mindset. Both of the seats feature an adjustable harness that will properly strap in your toddlers. In the front seat, there is a convertible three-to-five-point harness. The rear seat, on the other hand, features a three-point harness. For added protection, there is a single canopy that will protect one of your children from being overheated from the sun. However, I should warn you that it’s not the best canopy I have ever seen on a stroller.
I have researched several strollers and all of them have had some type of extra storage capabilities. The Graco Roomfor2 is no different and is among the best in this category. There is a parent tray that has two very deep cup holders that will hold all of your essentials (keys, drinks, snacks, wallet, phone, etc.). For your toddler, there is also a child’s tray that will hold their essentials (bottles, snacks, cups, etc.). This tray will easily pivot to ensure that your child has no issues getting out of the stroller. To top it all off, there is a large storage basket that can store anything you need for the day.
Alright, here we go. I have never written a review about a product that was perfect. Do you want to know why? It’s because there is no such thing as a flawless product. So, let’s take a quick look at some of the biggest gripes I have. First off, when a child is laying down on their back while riding it’s very easy for them to hit the brake lock (which makes for abrupt stops). Secondly, if you let one of your children lay back in the front there is literally no room for your child in the back. Finally, the canopy that I previously alluded to will barely block the sun making it essentially useless.
As long as the negatives don’t out way the positives then, in my book, you have yourself a worthwhile product. In the case of this stroller, the positives clearly out way the negatives. The variety of seating options, storage capabilities, safety, incredibly easy clean-up and storage, and durability combine to make this a viable option. When making your final decision, I would recommend you to have the Click Connect Roomfor2 stroller high on your list.
