Best Convertible Strollers That Grow With Your Family 2024

Best Convertible Strollers That Grow With Your Family 2024

When you're shopping for your first stroller, you're naturally thinking about your first baby—not necessarily your second. Then, in seemingly no time, Baby #2 is on the way, but Baby #1 still needs the stroller, too. Now what?

Many families purchase a double stroller with side-by-side seats, which works well for a period of time. But when the older child graduates from stroller travel, you’re either back to where you started with the single stroller, or you’re pushing a double stroller with only one kid in it (resulting in unnecessary bulkiness, uneven weight distribution—and a couple of weird looks).

The solution? A convertible stroller—one that can be both a single and a double.  A convertible stroller allows you to attach a second stroller seat, infant car seat or, in some cases, a bassinet in order to transform a single stroller into a ride for two.

When your older child insists they're too grown-up for a stroller, you can detach the second seat to convert it back to a single stroller. And when it turns out that they're not quite grown-up enough for long walks, after all, you can add a glider board so they can ride along.

Another pro: Most convertible strollers offer multiple seat configurations so that your kids can face you, face the world or face each other, helping you attempt to keep two kids happy at the same time.

The cons: Given their size and complexity, convertible strollers can be both heavy and expensive. But because it endures for years as your family expands, a high-quality convertible stroller can be a wise investment for new parents.

Here’s a look at the top high-quality convertible strollers that grow with your family (listed by ascending price):

Babyzen YOYO2 Stroller & Connect

Designed in France, with all-wheel suspension that can handle bumpy roads, the Babyzen YOYO2 is one of the best and lightest strollers on the market. It is best known for its convenience for families on the go while being durable enough for strolling on rougher terrain.

In 2022, Babyzen introduced the YOYO Connect, which allows parents to turn their YOYO2 into a double stroller. As a single stroller, the YOYO2 weighs less than 14 pounds and as a double it weighs 27 pounds. Each component, the YOYO2 stroller and YOYO2 Connect, can fold compactly enough to fit in an overhead bin or be carried on your shoulder.

YOYO2 Price

YOYO2 Weight and Dimensions

  • Dimensions: 39" L x 17" W x 41" H
  • Folded dimensions: 20" L x 17"W x 7" H
  • Stroller weight: 13.6 pounds as a single and 27 pounds as a double
  • Weight limit: 48.5 pounds per seat
  • Warranty: 2 years

YOYO2 & Connect Configurations

  • You can use the YOYO2 as a single stroller in four different wayswith the YOYO bassinet, the YOYO 0+ Newborn Pack, or the YOYO2 6+. In single mode, an older sibling can also ride along using the Babyzen Board
  • The YOYO2 Connect 6+ Double Stroller has a total of four possible configurations for siblings of different ages including a newborn, and two configurations with twins.

Car seats compatible with YOYO2

Here is a full list of the infant car seats that are compatible with the YOYO2, along with a link to the car seat adapters.

  • Clek Liing
  • Cybex Aton Series and Cloud Q car seats
  • Maxi-Cosi infant car seats
  • Nuna PIPA Series car seats

Please note the Babyzen YOYO2 Connect is NOT car seat compatible. While you can attach a car seat to the YOYO2 stroller while a Connect is attached behind, you cannot also attach a car seat to the Connect.

How to fold the Babyzen YOYO2 & Connect

The YOYO's two-step fold requires more of a learning curve—once you practice it a few times, it becomes second nature and you'll catch an envious glare from another parent when you fold it at an airport.

The first step, which can be completed while your child is still seated, involves pressing two buttons to fold the canopy. For the second step, you'll need just one hand to press and slide a button under the stroller seat until the frame collapses. 

You fold the Connect the same way, and it can hook to the back of the YOYO2 stroller frame using the included clip attachments. It is very quick to detach and fold if you need to switch from double to single use.

YOYO2 Benefits 

  • One of the only single to double stroller options that is travel friendly and compact
  • If one of your children wants to walk for a while, the Connect is easy to fold up and out of the way, and can quickly attach to the back of the YOYO2.
  • Lightweight enough for on-the-go living while being strong and durable to handle uneven terrain

YOYO2 Drawbacks

  • Smaller stroller that doesn't offer as much storage space as other convertible strollers
  • Connect frame can not attach an infant car seat, which would be the closest position to the parent when pushing as a double stroller
  • With a joint attachment where the Connect attaches to the YOYO2, parents can find it harder to lift the double stroller over a curb

    Peg Perego YPSI

    Peg-Perego YPSI Double Stroller

    The Peg Perego YPSI became the lightest convertible stroller on the market in 2020. Weighing just 22.5 pounds, the YPSI is even lighter than many single strollers, yet is sturdy enough to accommodate a total weight of 100 pounds between two stroller seats.

    Peg Perego manufactures the YPSI stroller and car seats in Italy.

    If you're using a car seat or bassinet for your newborn, it only takes a set of double adapters ($59.99) to change the stroller to double mode. Because both stroller seats are identical, offering a 50-pound weight limit, you can simply move the upper seat to the lower position.

      Peg Perego YPSI Price

        Peg Perego YPSI Weight and Dimensions

        • Dimensions: 39.25L x 20"W x 40.25"H

        • Clek Liing

        How to fold Peg Perego YPSI

        The Peg Perego YPSI has an easy two-step fold: first, pull up on the triggers to fold the seat in half. Then pull a bar underneath the seat, and the handlebar swings over the stroller into a standing position.

        When using the stroller as a double, you'll need to remove the lower seat before folding. The double adapters add several inches to the height of the stroller when folded. You can save space by removing the upper seat before folding the stroller, then removing the upper adapters (which can only be detached when the stroller is folded).

        • Stroller has to be folded in order to attach and remove upper adapters
        • Stroller is tall when folded as a double due to height of double adapters
        • Lacks accessories such as cup holder and snack tray
        • Stroller can only fold by detaching the lower position seat first

          Cybex Gazelle S 2

          The Gazelle S 2 debuted in 2023 and is the first convertible stroller from Cybex, the German manufacturer known for its innovative and stylish line of baby gear.

          Among the stroller's 20+ configurations are a few options that set the Gazelle apart. The Gazelle includes a shopping basket that can be used in the stroller's upper position (with your child in the lower seat)—a configuration that nearly doubles the storage capacity of the stroller!

          When your family grows, you may not need to buy a second seat. The seat that comes with the Gazelle can be moved to the lower position, allowing you to use an infant car seat or bassinet on top for your newborn. Adapters that convert the Gazelle from single to double are incorporated into the stroller frame, so you won't need to purchase additional accessories.

Then press the button underneath the handle while sliding the button on top of the handle. Use your left hand to press the trigger on the side of the frame while retracting the handlebar.

You can grasp the exposed bumper bar and use your leg to help you lift the stroller into the car.

            The Switchback Switch&Roll can also fold with the second seat still attached, but the stroller is much less bulky if you take it off before folding.

            Nuna Demi Grow

            Stylish Mom Using A Nuna Demi Grow on A Beautiful Day

            The Demi Grow is the first convertible stroller from Nuna, the stylish Dutch brand known for its strollers and ultra-popular Nuna PIPA line of infant car seats.

            Unlike other convertible strollers in which one seat sits in front of the other, the two seats on the Demi Grow are stacked. With the weight of both kids on the rear axle, the stroller becomes easier to maneuver and can accommodate a higher weight capacity of 50 pounds per seat.

            The stroller seats are identical, which allows the upper seat to be moved to the lower seat when a sibling comes along. Included with purchase are two sets of Nuna car seat adapters, including a ring-shaped adapter that allows the car seat to be attached and removed using only one hand.

            The Demi Grow was updated in 2022, including brown leatherette details, as well as a magnetic harness buckle, and additional canopy with added ventilation and attached bug net.

The Toddler Seat for the upper position has a 50-pound weight limit, while the smaller RumbleSeat holds 35 pounds in the lower position only.

              In 2020, UPPAbaby released the Vista V2, making upgrades to the all-wheel suspension for a smoother ride and adding new colors, a no-rethread harness, a redesigned sun canopy with two ventilation panels, and more.

              How to Fold UPPAbaby Vista

              The Vista is one of the easiest convertible strollers to fold: Pull back on the triggers on each side, and the stroller locks into a compact, standing position. You can grasp the exposed bumper bar and use your leg to help you lift the stroller into the car.

              The Vista can also fold with the RumbleSeat attached, but the stroller is less bulky if you remove it before folding.

              • Requires the purchase of additional adapters for double configurations with infant car seat or bassinet
              • Bassinet does not fit in upper position when using RumbleSeat on the lower position

                Silver Cross Wave

                convertible strollers that grow with your family

                The Wave brings modern-day practicality to the timeless elegance of Silver Cross, the British company that has created carriages for generations of royal babies.

                The Silver Cross Wave, which debuted in 2017, is the rare stroller that can become a double stroller out of the box by using the stroller's included toddler seat and overnight-approved bassinet together. Soft, premium fabrics and a high-strength magnesium alloy chassis give the Wave a luxurious look and the sturdiest ride.

                In 2021, Silver Cross reduced the weight of the Wave by another 4.4 pounds and introduced a new color lineup. The new stroller holds 55 pounds in both the upper and lower seats, making the Silver Cross Wave the highest-capacity double stroller on the market.

                Bugaboo Donkey5

                convertible strollers that grow with your family

                The top-of-the-line Bugaboo Donkey, created by the company that essentially invented the luxury stroller, offers a different type of expansion than seen on other convertible strollers.

                As a single stroller, the Donkey5 features a unique luggage basket in the sidecar position. To make the Donkey5 a double stroller, remove the basket and expand the stroller's width five inches to add a second seat, creating a side-by-side stroller with 17 different configurations.

                In 2022, Bugaboo debuted the Donkey5, which has higher seat positioning thanks to a redesigned frame which brings your children closer to you, while updated folding mechanisms are more user friendly. Ventilation in the bassinet siding provides air flow that keeps your newborn cool and comfortable.

                Bugaboo Donkey5 Fold

                The Donkey5 can fold with both seats attached and stand when folded when you pull back on two triggers incorporated into the frame.

                But the stroller will be more easier to lift if you remove the seats, which are self-standing so they won't get dirty. Reducing the frame to its single width also makes for a most compact fold.

                See the one-piece fold and the compact fold options in the videos below.

                Bugaboo Donkey5 Benefits

                • Side-by-side seating can allow for more even weight distribution and easier push compared to an inline stroller, making it ideal for twins and siblings close in age
                • Bugaboo is known for top quality and maneuverability
                • Both stroller seats are equal in size
                • Seats convert from bassinets to stroller seats and can stand on the ground independently
                • Can go into two-wheel mode for navigating sand and snow
                • Can fold with two stroller seats attached (more compactly without seats)
                • Bugaboo offers up to a 4 year manufacturer warranty on their strollers

                Bugaboo Donkey5 Drawbacks

                • Price is at the top of the market
                • Side-by-side stroller can be considered too wide when car seats are attached
                • Although the double stroller folds with both seats attached, achieving the most compact fold involves multiple steps (removing seats and reducing frame width)
