Graco RoomFor2 Stand and Ride Stroller Review
Graco are usually at the forefront when it comes to innovation with baby products, having over 50 years of experience in the industry. The Graco RoomFor2 Stand and Ride Stroller was developed to provide you a versatile way to carry up to two children on the go. Unlike regular double strollers which limit your child to just sitting, the Stand and Rise Stroller allows your older child to either stand or sit at the back while the younger one sits in the front.
So if you’re put off by the ultra-wide double strollers with high price tags and you’re looking for something more compact and affordable, but equally as versatile then this might just fit the bill.
- Each seat accommodates up to 50lbs

Stand up Tall
If you have an older child, you’ll know that they can get restless at times and don’t want to sit. That’s not a problem with this stroller thanks to its standing platform that gives your child the choice of either standing on the platform or sitting in comfort on the padded bench seat.
Your younger one can sit in the multi-positional front seat which can be semi-reclined when they want to get some sleep. An adjustable 3-to-5 point harness is included so as your child gets older you can switch to the 5 point harness.
The front swivel wheels enable you to turn the stroller with ease which is particularly handy in those tight situations in busy shopping malls. Additionally, the suspension system ensures your children experience a smooth ride and not a bumpy one.
Convenience on the go
Graco have included several amenities which make life on the go that much more refreshing for both parents and children. At the rear there is a parent tray plus two cup holders so you can store small items in such as your phone for convenient access and also quench your thirst without stopping by grabbing a drink from the cup holder. At the front there is a pivoting child’s tray which has been designed to lift up to give you easy seat access.
The bottom storage basket has plenty of space to give you a place to store all your baby gear for both children such as diaper bags and toys.
Easy One-hand Fold
If you’re fed up with strollers which take almost as long to fold away for storage as packing away a tent does then you’ll really appreciate the one-hand fold system which allows you to fold down and stow the stroller with ease. We’re quite impressed with how compact the stroller collapses, so it isn’t too bulky when it goes into your trunk.
Car Seat Compatible
The Graco RoomFor2 Stand and Ride Stroller isn’t just a standard stroller, its adaptability allows it to turn into a travel system. It’s compatible with every Graco Infant Car Seat using a secure latching system which secures the car seat into to the front seat, so you’re infant can ride safely.
Pros and Cons
The RoomFor2 Stand and Ride Stroller delivers comfort with convenience and ease of use. The option to sit or stand is a really cool feature which your older child will enjoy. With the 50lbs per child weigh limit; this stroller lasts well into your child’s toddler years.
The sun canopy is shared between both children so it doesn’t provide quite the level of sun protection as we’d like.
The fold down system collapses the stroller to the floor so it requires you to bend down to lift it up. While this isn’t a big problem, it’s more inconvenient than strollers which fold down into a standing upright position.
We love the concept of Sit n Stand strollers, the Graco RoomFor2 Stand and Ride Stroller really does take this concept to the next level by providing a bench seat so your older child won’t have to stand the whole journey. If you need an affordable, fun way to transport two children of varying ages then this Graco stroller is worth going for.
