Graco’s Ready2Grow Stand & Ride Stroller & Giveaway!


We have three kids and two of them are still preschool and toddler age. When we go out I like to keep things compact which is why I am a fan of Graco’s Ready2Grow Stand & Ride stroller ($179). It’s not a side by side stroller which I find to be hard to steer and a mess when dealing with errands. I like the longer, leaner feel and control that the Ready2Grow gives me as I navigate the aisles at Target.

This Stand & Ride stroller has 12 different riding options for sitting and standing.  It’s perfect for multiple kid families and varying ages.  My middle child likes to stand while the two year-old rides in the stroller seat up front.  It has a removable rear seat, accepts up to two Graco car seats and lockable front swivel wheels and a removable child’s tray.  I love that the straps for the child’s seat are made so that they can’t slide out as you unbuckle the harness.  My kids tend to do that often.  There is a cup holder and tray for parents and the bench seat in back can be removed too.

We had a sit and stand stroller from a different company and while I liked it there was very little versatility with the seat combinations like this Graco Ready2Grow.  The basket on the Ready2Grow is huge!  It is easily accessible too.  Perfect!  My old sit and stand had a large basket too but once you put that second kid in you couldn’t reach it.  What was the point? The rear seat on the Ready2Grow holds up to 40 lbs while the front holds up to 50 lbs.  Great for growing families.  My favorite part of the Ready2Grow Stand & Sit stroller is that while it is 39 lbs it can be folded and unfolded with one hand.  Yes, really.  I can open it fast and close it shut just as quickly.  It’s great for going on a walk, running errands or taking it out for a day trip.

I love the Ready2Grow Stand & Ride stroller.  It works for my three kid family and is easy to use. The wheels are big, the swivel all over and the base is wide enough to support the weight of the kids but without making it bulky or hard to maneuver.

MPR Rating: Four Stars.

    I’d love this because, well, we need a stroller and I like this one- thanks for the giveaway!

  10. Arantxa says:

    I would love to win this because now that we have two kids a 6mo and a 2yr old its hard going places because we have one big strolled for the baby and a small one for our toddler. So everywhere we go we have to be getting down two strollers down from the car and both me and my hubby have to each be pushing one. It’s just very fraustrating! Everytime we make plans to go buy a double stroller something happens and we don’t get the chance

  11. This would be great for my 3 month old and my 3 year old (who always insists on walking, but usually needs to ride after a while :)

  12. Heather says:

    This is perfect for two kids especially the toddler stage where they think they want to walk but get tired after 5 minutes but still think they are too big to sit in the stroller

  13. Rachel DeHart says:

    I’d love to have this stroller because i’m going to be having my 2nd baby in july and my first will be around 15 months old. I think this would make traveling alot easier with my 2 kids.

    I’d love to win this stroller because with a son who just turned one an me and my husband thinking about having another baby this would be perfect seeing as I already use and love Graco products and the thought of using a side by side double stroller is daunting to say the least . Thanks for the great giveaway (I never even heard of sit and stand strollers before so double thanks)
