About the Graco Ready2Grow

When you have two kids, the Graco Ready2Grow LX Double Stroller is a lifesaver. This stroller allows you to attach up to two infant car seats, making it possible to push your children in snug and comfortable positions.

This quality stroller comes with a cup holder for your favorite drink. It also has plenty of storage so that you can store different items for your children (diaper bag, toys, snacks, shopping, etc). The storage latch is accessible when you lift the bench seat.

The Graco LX Stroller also has strong front swivel wheels so that you can comfortably push your two kids without much strain. There is plenty of leg room, and the rear wheels are wide apart to allow you to push the stroller without stumbling.

The stroller measures 41 inches when you collapse it, and can therefore fit in most car trunks. The super-light foot brakes make it easy to stop the stroller at a moment’s notice.

Versatility

Graco Ready2Grow LX Double Stroller Design

When it comes to design, this stroller has obviously been built for versatility and flexibility. You can remove the canopies from the stroller seats so that your babies can enjoy some sun, or put them back on for weather protection. You can remove the rear stroller seat to convert to a single stroller and vice versa.

The Graco double stroller has an inbuilt adapter hidden on the rear seat stroller. To access the car seat adapter, remove the seat liner from the rear stroller seat, and there you will find it! You can use the adapter to create more riding options for the children.

Graco Ready2Grow Car Seat Compatibility

Do you already have two Graco SnugRide Click Connect car seats? If so, you’ll be happy to note that the Graco double stroller accepts two Classic Connect LX Graco Car Seats. With this stroller, you can create a complete travel system and seamlessly shift your kids from stroller to car.

You can use this baby stroller from when a child is less than one year old until they are about 50 pounds (a 6-year-old). The rear seat holds a child until they are 40 pounds, while the front seat holds a child up to 50 pounds. The bench seat and the standing platforms hold a maximum weight of 50 pounds.

With the Graco Ready2Grow Click Connect LX infant car seats, it will seem as though you have double strollers – but it still folds as one stroller for ease of storage and transport.

Seating Arrangements

Graco Ready2Grow LX Double Stroller Seating Arrangements

Do you have a toddler or an older child who wants different riding options to explore their surroundings?  With this Graco LX baby stroller, you have 12 riding options! You can even can place the two Graco SnugRide ClickConnect car seats in two opposite directions, one facing you while the other car seat faces the front. 

You can also remove the rear Graco infant car seats whenever you want, allowing the older child to sit or stand while you push the stroller. Removing the rear seat will allow you to convert your stroller to a bench seat with a standing platform for your older kid to sit and stand.

The Main Stroller Seat (Front Seat)

The Graco Ready2Grow main stroller has a reclining front seat with a removable child’s tray. This allows your baby to either lie flat when taking a nap or to sit up. You can adjust the main seat using one hand. The seat is also spacious with a width of 12 inches – enough to allow for your child’s growth, whilst keeping the overall design sleek and slim.

Each Graco stroller seat has a padded and adjustable 5 point safety harness to secure your baby. The safety harness also converts to a lap belt so that your older child can feel free riding the double stroller.  The removable child’s tray with a cup holder will allow your baby to comfortably go in and out of the front seat and to hold the kids’ snacks. 

The Rear Stroller Seat

The Graco rear seat sits high in a backwards-facing position which allows you bonding time with your baby as you walk. This rear seat does not recline further, and you can not adjust it to sit up, but you can remove it for other configurations. The infant car rear seat accommodates a child up to two years old.

The rear stroller seat has the ability to hold a child up to 50 pounds. Whether your kids want to sit or stand, this seat standing platform will have them covered as you go about with your activities. Both stroller seats have removable trays with cup holders within a child’s reach.

The Toddler Bench Seat

The bench seat offers your child the perfect seating position to explore their surroundings. You can easily fold it towards you to gain access to the extra-large storage basket underneath. Conveniently, when you fold the bench seat, it offers support to your items in the extra-large storage basket so that they don’t fall over. You can also have an engaging discussion with your child from the toddler bench seat.

Storage Space

Having twins or two small babies means you end up carrying lots of items with you wherever you go. The Graco double stroller has a large storage basket underneath the bench seat to help you out. This gives you plenty of space to store the diaper bag and any other baby things you need, while the front swivel wheels help you maneuver your way without breaking a sweat. To get to your storage items, all you have to do is flip the bench seat! Easy.

The other great thing about this stroller is the parent tray with cup holder, meaning you can keep your coffee, phone and other key possessions in easy reach.

Assembling and Folding the Stroller

The Graco Ready2Grow comes with an instruction booklet that offers visuals on how to assemble the stroller. Even without this, it is reasonably intuitive to assemble, and the process of assembling the stroller and getting it fully set up takes about 10 minutes. Customizing the Connect LX infant car seats on the go is also simple. This allows your children to explore the various riding options easily.

Folding this double stroller is a short and sweet process, as Graco developed a one-hand gravity folding mechanism that makes it easy to take the stroller wherever you go. It also has an automatic frame lock that secures the stroller in place until you’re ready to take it out again.

When you fold this Ready2Grow stroller, it measures Length: 53″, Width: 24″; Height: 20½”. It would be wise to measure the space in your car to make sure it will fit easily before you make a purchase. Although bulky, the Graco Ready2Grow double stroller has the same length as a single stroller. This helps you to maneuver the stroller easily.
