Introducing the New Graco Ready2Grow Stand and Ride Stroller!

Graco is excited to announce our newest double stroller, the Ready2Grow stand and ride stroller. Most people are probably more familiar with Graco’s tandem double strollers (DuoGlider, Quattro Tour Duo), which are the ones that the two kids sit back to back. What is so exciting about this double stroller is that it provides 12 riding options for your kids (yup, I said 12).

You can still snap in two Graco infant car seats into this double stroller but there are also so many other seating configurations to choose from. Your older child can sit on the bench seat or stand on the platform, while your little one can sit back and enjoy the front row seat. Another cool option is the “Face Time” stroller seat. You can make your little one laugh or show her the sights as you push the stroller. The best way to experience this stroller is to go instore and try it out with your kids, see more pictures online, or check out our video.

With all of these seating options, Graco did not forget out the convenience features that moms expect and love about Graco strollers. Like I mentioned before this stroller includes, the ability to use two Graco infant car seats in the stroller, a removable Face Time seat where you can spend some close up quality time with your baby, a reclining front seat that lies flat, a one-hand fold, and an extra-large storage basket that can be accessed by pulling up on the toddler bench seat–awesome, huh?

I wish I had this stroller when my girls were younger! I know PP would have loved the standing platform and Pinkie Pie (who is my eternal cuddler) would have loved the Face Time seat so she could be even closer to me. Our strollers keep getting better and better!

    As a few other people have mentioned, this stroller is very difficult to find in stores currently. Is this stroller being discontinued, are they working on getting out a new version, or is it just slow getting to stores?

    I bought mine in February at babies r us…didn’t even know it was brand new

    i am going to address a couple of the recent comments:
    –there will be another fashion available at Babies R Us but not until October
    –unfortunately both babies r us and target are low on inventory since the stroller is selling so well & has become very popular. the hope is that both retailers will be back fully in stock by June
    –as for how the stroller folds, on the stroller handle, push the red button and twist the handle
    –for the face time stroller seat, once you remove it, you will have to store it in the car or in your garage–there is no storage place for it on the stroller once its removed.
    Hope this answers everyone’s questions. Thanks for all of the comments!

    Can I use my Eddie Bauer carseat in this stroller?

  5. Jill Witte April 25, 2012 at 2:53 pm #

    Oh no! I just read older posts & am super duper disappointed that I cannot get this stroller!!! I need something that is compatible with my Eddie Bauer carseat. Unfortunately, am not in a position to buy a new carseat system & a new stroller for baby #2… bummer.

  6. Jake May 3, 2012 at 11:48 am #

    It seems that the front wheels wobble uncontrollably at times. In every negative review on BRU it mentions this. Do we have a defective stroller or is that just an issue with it? MY question is: why do the front wheels wobble?

  7. Melissa Parlaman (Graco Contributor) May 3, 2012 at 12:26 pm #

    Hi Jake,
    Please call our consumer services department & they can help you out. The number is 1-800-345-4109.

  8. Rene May 5, 2012 at 8:51 pm #

    We saw one in babies r us today, and we like the design but we are going to have to buy the carseat/base to go with it, so my question is will ANY graco carseat fit or do we need to look for certain versions? Thank you for your help.

  9. Michelle May 6, 2012 at 9:42 pm #

    As a mom pregnant with twins, this stroller seems like the best option (we just checked out a model at babies r us),There are two major problems though.
    ONE – I can’t seem to find it anywhere to plan for our babies arrival and TWO – There is no option for the babies, once they are sitting on their own to BOTH face the front.

    I see this as an issues if you are on an outing, like a zoo or park, one child’s back is to the action and could be squirming around to see what the child in the front can see.
    With these two issues, the other stroller we looked into, a Chicco, both of these problems are not an issue but the price is a LOT more. :(

    We just purchased the the Ready2Grow and it is AMAZING!!!!! However, I have one problem that I hope you can help me with because the instruction manual and Graco website do not discuss it. Does this stroller have an automatic lock when it folds up? Here is why I ask? When folding it upon assembly and on the first day of use it seemed to be locking automatically when we folded it. However, today on it’s second day of use, it does not seem to be locking in place. If it does have an automatic lock, do you have a suggestion as to why it is not working any longer after 2 days of use? Is there something i am doing wrong or is there something I can do to fix it?

  11. Jordan May 7, 2012 at 6:20 pm #

    Im looking to purchase this for my 3month old daugther and 17month old son but i have one question.

    What is the difference in the LX and non-LX version? I cant seem to find the answer to this on the Graco website.

  12. Amber May 9, 2012 at 3:08 am #

    what are the dimensions of this stroller when folded? and what is the difference between the LX and the non-LX version?

  13. Anna May 9, 2012 at 11:46 am #

    I have the same question as previous posters. I can’t find the difference between the LX and non LX versions…

  14. krystal n May 9, 2012 at 11:48 pm #

    So I am actually sitting on the white paper in my obs office for a checkup.
    This will be baby #2 for me, I have an 18 month old son at home.
    And i was planning on using my sons car seat again.
    Its a combi shuttle system and my question is .
    Will my combi car seat work in this stroller?

  15. Melissa Parlaman (Graco Contributor) May 11, 2012 at 7:42 pm #

    I am going to try to address a couple of comments at once:
    Rene: all versions of Graco SnugRide fit into the Ready2Grow stroller
    Michelle: thank you for your great feedback! I sent this over to the stroller engineers.
    Jason: can you please call our customer service department? Their number is 1-800-345-4109
    Jordan, Anna & Amber: The main difference between the standard model & the LX model is that the LX versions have front & rear seat head rests and harness covers.
    Amber: the folded stroller dims are: 53 (l) x 24 (w) x 20.5 (h)
    Krystal: the combi car seat is not compatible with this or any Graco stroller. We engineer our strollers & infant car seats to exclusively work together.
    Hope I was able to help everyone out!

  16. Noha May 14, 2012 at 7:05 pm #

    Hi, i am about to purchase this item and would like to know one thing before i do, i need to know folded dimensions to see if it will fit in my Suzuki Sx4 trunk (hatch back).

    Thank you for your help in advance!

  17. karie phillips May 25, 2012 at 3:10 pm #

    Does chicco keyfit fit with this stroller? Or is there an attachment to buy?

  18. Lea May 27, 2012 at 6:14 pm #

    Does the rear facing seat recline? Would I be able to put my 2month old in the rear seat or would I have to use an infant carrier?

  19. Cat Griffith May 28, 2012 at 3:35 am #

    I put this stroller on my baby registry for my 18 month old & unborn, but when I tried to purchase it, it was saying it has been discontinued :( My question is, Will this be coming back anytime soon?? My daughter isn’t due for 2 weeks so I can wait a few weeks to buy it.

  20. Rafael Azevedo May 28, 2012 at 5:33 pm #

    Hi, Melissa, I just bought this stroller for my daughters on my last trip to USA, and it is amazing! Unfortunately, TAM Airlines lost the front footrest on the trip to Brazil. Is there anyway where I can order an spare footrest to fix it? Thanks!!

  21. Ashley May 31, 2012 at 3:04 pm #

    I found the stroller at and if you have Amazon Mom you can usually get free 2-day shipping. I am planning on buying this for my 2 1/2 year and #2 due in December. I am hoping that I may be able to find it somewhere so I can look at it before I buy, but if not you can always return it.

  22. Amanda V June 1, 2012 at 2:43 am #

    I am also wondering – Does chicco keyfit fit with this stroller?

  23. Cheryl June 2, 2012 at 4:57 pm #

    I also would like to know the difference between the LX and non LX versions. I know you just posted that the difference is LX has headrests and strap covers, but I’ve been doing a lot of review-reading and the non-LX has GREAT reviews, and the LX has awful ones — mainly that the children are too cramped, and that the bench seat was too short, not enough room for a toddler in either seat/bench/stand. Is there a difference in size/room for each passenger too?

    I am very interested in the non-LX, I will have a tall 2yr old and an infant when i purchase this and I would like to use it at least two years…
    There is one other stroller I have been looking into as well, but I’m starting to like this one better.

  24. Stacey June 3, 2012 at 7:57 pm #

    Im trying to find out of the Graco Safe Seat will fit this stroller!! I see that the Graco Snug ride does, but no where, anywhere can I see if the safe seat is ok with it! Help!

  25. Vivian June 5, 2012 at 4:03 am #

    I have a quick question. Would it be safe to put my 2 1/2 month old in the rear facing me on the actual seat and not in the infant carrier? Or is there a certain age that would be best?

  26. kala June 6, 2012 at 5:08 pm #

    hey there. i am just wondering if I will be able to find this stroller in canada anywhere? I have finally decided on this for my double stroller but have now read it may not be easy to find? Thoughts?

  27. hapurahman June 7, 2012 at 7:59 pm #

    Love the charming tree! It would be perfect in my little girl’s room redo coming soon.Graco Duo Glider

  28. Crystal June 7, 2012 at 8:20 pm #

    Hey Melissa, I was interested in getting this stroller and came across this blog and now I have received the answers to my questions. I am impressed that the company itself is involved in this way to be able to help its customers make a more informed choice. Now Hopefully I will be able to find one. Thanks

  29. stéphanie June 12, 2012 at 1:24 pm #

    Bonjour je suis française et un vrai coup de coeur pour cet poussette!! j’aimerais savoir comment peux t on l’acquérir depuis la france? car je ne trouve aucun site qui accepte l’envois en france! Et je ne veux pas retomber sur un site frauduleux!

  31. Rita Handley June 14, 2012 at 8:37 am #

    We are quiet interested in this buggy.I have seen no mention about car seat base.Are they avaible?

  32. Jessica June 19, 2012 at 9:17 pm #

    Hi! I haven’t read through all the comments, but was wondering will any graco infant carseat be compatible with this?

  33. jessica June 28, 2012 at 12:36 am #

    Would this be good for 2 yr old twins? They weigh 27 pounds right now. Thank you

  34. Rita Handley June 28, 2012 at 10:36 pm #

    Where can we go to veiw this item? need to see how small it folds down weight etc.Also what car seats fit . MANY THANKS

  35. Stephanie July 1, 2012 at 3:22 pm #

    Hi! I was wondering if there is an option for 2 toddler to ride both forward facing? I see one can STAND forward facing while another rides, or one can face rear facing while another rides forward, but can they both sit facing forward?

  36. Crystal July 6, 2012 at 5:25 pm #

    What are the smallest height/weight requirements for the removable Facetime seat? I was trying to judge how old the babies are in the pictures who aren’t in an infant seat, but couldn’t really tell.

  37. Rita Handley July 17, 2012 at 11:17 pm #

    We are looking to buy stroller .Where can we veiw it also do you not do the car seat with it.Im slowly running out of time ??????? please

  38. Jessica July 18, 2012 at 1:41 am #

    We have looked at this stroller in the store and I love it, but it didn’t seem compatible with my Eddie Bauer Adventurer Travel System infant seat. I thought this was a Graco product. It has a Deluxe Designer 22 infant seat (model #22322). Will this stroller accommodate this infant seat??

  39. Amy August 2, 2012 at 5:03 pm #

    Any word on if the chicco keyfit infant seats fit with this stroller?

  40. Li August 2, 2012 at 10:39 pm #

    I just want to tell people this, while Graco does not approve of other car seats to be used with this stroller, I haven’t had any problems using my Peg perego seat.

  41. Brooke August 12, 2012 at 1:47 am #

    I was also concerned about not having an option to have both children facing forward. At the beginning of my pregnancy I feel in love with this stroller and registered for it. However, now that I am ready to purchase it the model has changed. When speaking with the people at Babies-R-Us today they told me I might be able to purchase the older model online. I can’t find it ANYWHERE and was hoping maybe you would know if it was still available. Will they be releasing any new models of the stroller in the upcoming months?

  42. sinead August 13, 2012 at 1:23 pm #

    Hi I was just wondering two things. The first is that I can’t seem to be able to purchase this stroller at any retailers in Ireland and was just wondering if it was currently available in Ireland. My second question is if I do actually manage to buy it will the Graco junior car seat fit in this stroller. I have a 4 month old and am currently expecting our second child so this would be perfect for my ever expanding family.

  43. Alison August 25, 2012 at 5:01 pm #

    Can I use my Eddie Bauer carseat with this stroller

  44. Lisa August 27, 2012 at 2:16 pm #

    I am so excited to get this stroller! Baby #2 is due February and our son will be 22 months then. I knew I didn’t want a standard double stroller because at some point he’ll want to be walking around the stores. My concern with the regular Sit & Stand was that he wouldn’t be big enough at just 22 months to use that option and likely wouldn’t be too content strapped in to the back where he couldn’t see anything. Then I found THIS model!!! It solves all my problems and will get us right through all the various stages to come! I can’t wait to buy it, and more importantly, use it!!! Thank you Graco!

  45. jamie September 5, 2012 at 10:31 pm #

    Will this fit in the back of smaller SUV? We have a baby trend stroller and it only fits the trunk of a car! This stroller looks great, but someone mentioned it does not fit in their Jeep Patriot! Anyone else have this issue? If not, going to buy it this weekend (if I can find it!).

  46. Jamie September 8, 2012 at 6:45 pm #

    I would like to know if the snugride 35 will fit in this stroller and if it does does it matter which position you place it in as it is a large carseat. thank you.

  47. Kia September 10, 2012 at 5:49 am #

    Hi, we’re considering this stroller for our 2 1/2 year old and a newborn. A few people over the last few months have mentioned that they were buying it to use with a newborn. With the front seat reclined flat how much room is there for the 2nd facing me seat? Will my daughter have to stand if my #2 is sleeping? Looking forward to the new model and see what changes they have. I’ve been searching for a picture of the stroller with the front seat fully reclined but still no luck.

  48. Angi October 12, 2012 at 9:28 pm #

    Hi. I am interested in the Ready 2 Grow Stand and Ride Stroller. I have been reading multiple reviews about this stroller. I have a 2 and half year old and a new baby coming in Decemeber. I have read that there was a new pattern coming out in October. Does anyone know when this new pattern is coming out? I am wanting to purchase this soon if someone could please let me know.

  49. Cynthia October 16, 2012 at 9:52 pm #

    Worst purchase EVER! Im having twins and the infant GRACO matching carseats that match dont fit in it safely so … my two year old can tip the babies out. Heck a bump in the road can tip the carseat out. Its NOT made for TWO infant seats! Its going back ASAP! Very disappointed. It might work for older children but not newborns in the baby seat

  50. Mayra Grimes November 2, 2012 at 6:45 am #

    Question: Does the Graco SnugRide 40 come with the attachment to attach the car seat to the Graco Ready 2 Grow LX sit and stand double stroller? If not where can I purchase the attachment?
