Graco Modes Duo Pushchair Review


As a Graco Ambassador, it's my role to try and review some of the fantastic products available in the Graco range and this week I'll be reviewing the fabulous Graco Modes Duo Stroller.

As the name suggests, the Duo is a double stroller for two children - something that is absolutely necessary when you have two children under the age of 2!

You may think there's nothing out of the ordinary about a double pushchair, but wait...I think the Modes Duo has a lot more to offer than your average double pushchair!

Unlike most double strollers, the Modes Duo is incredibly versatile and offers a host of combinations of seating and standing solutions for your little ones....and when I say a host, I mean SO MANY options! You can have them both front facing, facing each other, facing you, use with a baby carrier...the options are almost endless.

 In fact the Graco website states '1 stroller, 2 kids, 27 ways to ride'. I am happy to confirm this is no idle boast. It really does have 27 (yes 27!) possible combinations of customisable riding modes. These are possible due to the combination of the two covered seat units, the standing platform board, and the bench seat, combined with Graco's Click Connect Infant Car Seats (sold separately). This means it can adapt to suit your needs as you little ones grow.



The other thing I love about this pushchair is the HUGE shopping basket...it is honestly absolutely massive, you could do your entire Christmas shop and fit it in! (probably...). The addition of the cup holders is another feature I love, its little details like this that really sell a pushchair to me.

Incase you're interested, here are the key Features;

1) 27 Riding options with Infant Car Seats (sold separately) reversible seat units, bench units, and standing platform
2) 5 point harnesses to keep little ones secure
3) Car Seat and Carry Cot connect directly on to the frame without the need for an adaptor when using Graco SnugRide or SnugRide I-Size infant car seats
4) Folds easily with one hand
5) Multi Position recline seat-Suitable from Birth upto 15kg's (approx 3 years)
6) Very spacious under slung shopping basket
7) Lockable front swivel wheels for easy manoeuvrability

And The Technical Specs;

Weight 21.8kgs
Height 108cm
Width 65cm
Length 134cm
Folded Length 94cm
Folded Height 61cm''



We've taken the Graco Modes Duo out several times now - on short trips to the park and long journeys to other cities for days out and weekends away -  and it's a real pleasure to use with our little ones. Both of our youngest children love it so we know it's a smooth comfortable ride for them! 

The braking system is very easy to use and very secure when in place. Simply press down on the small crescent situated on the standing board at the rear and your Graco's wheels will lock very firmly in place. A simple lift of the same mechanism and you're off strolling again.

The Duo Mode is such a joy to use and has some other really cool ideas incorporated in to it. Seemingly little things such as safety bars that can be opened from the left or right on both covered seats with your tot still securely snuggled in place, make life a lot easier. Also, both the sides of, as well as the safety, bars all incorporate cup holders for your little ones drinks. Add to this a very innovative folding design which means the Duo fits in to an incredibly small space for storage or travel-Factors such as these show why Graco is such a trusted brand and market leader.



Our Graco Modes Duo came in the Black/Grey colour combination, and is also available in a lovely Navy Mojave colour scheme.

The Graco Modes Duo is available via retailers nationwide, you can visit www.graco.co.uk for details of your nearest Graco stockist.
