Graco Stadium Duo Tandem pushchair

This is just a quick look at the Graco Stadium Duo Tandem pushchair. A friend of mine asked me to sell it for her so I decided to try it with my LO and take some photos for the blog.

My first impressions were that the Graco Stadium Duo was huge! It's long, very long. It felt like pushing a bus and I had no clue where the front wheels were. The handle is not adjustable but felt to be comfortable and at a good height. The front wheels are double wheels like on umbrella strollers, they can be locked straight or swivel. The rear wheels are slightly bigger and there's suspension on all wheels. 

My LO looked very comfortable and was very pleased with the front play tray. Unfortunately with his weight in the front, the tandem was unbearably heavy to push and steer even on smooth floors. 

The back seat reclines flat, the front one has only a small recline so you would normally have your eldest in the front and a newborn/young baby in the back. 

I know you can put a Graco car seat on the rear seat so you could have a baby facing you. Both seats have 5-point harnesses and play trays for the children. Both seats have independent canopies that will easily protect from the sun and wind. The Graco Stadium Duo comes with 2 cozytoes, one for each child.

I found the basket to be gigantic. There's space for any baby and toddler gear you'll need with more than one child in tow. 

I was very pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to fold and unfold the Graco Statium Duo, it's really a one hand, one foot fold to make it freestand or just one hand to fold it on the ground! To unfold it all you need to do is unlock the automatic lock and lift the handle up, then I found it was easier to unfold it fully from the side so that it all locks into place. Unfortunately the folded size is absolutely enormous, you'd need a huge car to transport this buggy. It's also rather heavy and there's no easy way to lift it up.
