In my opinion, Sit and Stand or Tandem strollers are the pinnacle of convenience. I hate the idea of having to try and maneuver a wide side by side stroller. A lot of them have all the features required for easy maneuverability however the problem is with the width.
I don’t want to have to do an advanced driving course for strollers to be able to maneuver my stroller through doors and crowds. Rather give me a decent feature packed Tandem style stroller. While it may be longer, you have the advantage of moving through doors and crowds as if you were pushing a single stroller.
Because the Sit and Stand tandem stroller is what is currently best for my needs and lifestyle, I have reviewed some that Graco has to offer.

The Graco Modes Duo looks more like a standard double tandem stroller than a sit and stand stroller. However, once you have a closer look, you find that it is Graco’s most versatile double stroller with sit and stand option. It offers you a whopping 27 riding options.

With everything that this stroller offers you, I am not surprised it is heavier than other sit and stand strollers. It has a standing platform and bench seat for your older child, and two reclining, removable seats. Both seats can accept Graco snugride click connect infant car seats.
The extra large storage basket is awesome and locking front swivel wheel gives you smooth maneuverability. Front seat, rear seat, bench seat and standing platform each have a weight limit of 50lbs. With all the options this stroller offers you, you may be tempted to use this stroller for more kids. However, the maximum recommended is only two children.

Graco sit and stand stroller instructions and reviews
All Graco strollers come with instruction manual included. All information and directions like how to fold, how to assemble and how to maintain your stroller. All manuals also have a seating chart depicting all the seating options.
You can also find video instructions on most of the Graco strollers on their website or youtube.
Replacement parts and accessories such as rain cover are also available online.
The Graco Roomfor2 click connect, Ready2grow Lx and Modes Duo have all received fantastic reviews and feedback and are all great strollers. The negative for me is that they are only accepting Graco infant seats.
Baby Trend also has some great double tandem sit and stand strollers available such as the Dx also compatible with Graco snugride infant car seat.
Graco will always be a favorite of many parents because of the sturdy, well-built design that they keep on delivering.
Make no mistake, Tandem double strollers whether sit and stand or not have their advantages and disadvantages. The disadvantages are that the longer wheelbase which can make it difficult to push and longer so you may struggle to fit it in the trunk of a small vehicle.
I, however, can look past the disadvantages. I will always prefer a tandem style stroller, especially a sit and stand, over a side by side. It is what will make my life and current lifestyle easier. Not only will it make my life easier but my son will love standing on the glider board or standing platform at the back.
For me, it is a double sit and stand stroller any day.
