Graco Uno2Duo Travel System Review
I have been using the same infant car seat and stroller since my oldest child was born. While it was a nice “legacy” to hand it down, well, let’s say it’s seen better days! So this Graco Uno2Duo Travel System was a HUGE upgrade! It features the Click Connect System with the SnugRide SnugLock 35 car seat and a one to two kid convertible stroller! Be sure to check out the demo video at the end of the post! The Graco Uno2Duo Travel System is available exclusively through Babies “R” Us right HERE.
She really was excited about Her upgrade, no one else allowed!
The SnugRide SnugLock 35 Car Seat
Someone is super proud of her new SnugRide 35 car seat! Though she just turned 2 years old, she fit’s into this seat just fine (I have SMALL kids). We can’t even set it to the tallest strap settings yet and will last until she reaches 35 pounds. I love that the car seat is side-impact tested. Our previous infant seat was also a Graco and the straps are still arranged the same way, which was handy. They are easy to adjust and easy to buckle (Fighting 2-year-old notwithstanding). The canopy was easy to attach and is very sturdy! The handle is easy to adjust and the release lever is similar to the older styles as well, making the seat easy to remove from the base or the stroller. It is truly lightweight for an infant seat as well, which is nice.
My favorite part was installing the car seat base. What? True! It was SO easy with their easy lever arm system. Simply thread your seat belt or latch belt through and tighten according to guidelines. Then push down that bar until it clicks! The car seat has an easy to read level indicator and an easy adjustment button if it needs to be fixed.
The seat can also be placed into any seat, rear-facing, without the base. Simply strap down the seat with the seat belt following the instructions. If you are ever unsure of your installation look into local experts or even fire stations that can help!
The Uno2Duo Click Connect Stroller
Okay, so the Uno2Duo stroller requires some assembly. It looks intimidating, but I found it went together fairly quickly following the instructions. As this is a convertible stroller, it is bigger and heavier. It is still easy enough to lift when assembled though to get it in and out of the car. The wheels are lightweight but thick and sturdy. The base storage area is not deep, but it is pretty big. The front wheels have rotation locks and the rear brake is very smooth and easy to apply. The handle can be extended for taller parents and for children standing on the rear extendable platform for the sit and stand options. Simply pull the handle at the base and pull it out for an extra 5″ of space! This gives you extra storage space or allows you to easily go from 1 to 2 kids on the stroller.
There is a 5 point harness for the stroller seat and it has padding for each strap. The canopy has a nifty viewing window in case you need to check in. There is a cup holder and a phone holder for the parents and a removable seat tray for the stroller seat. Check out all the options in the demo video below!
The sheer versatility of the Uno2Duo stroller is incredible. There are 8 different seating options for a single child, with or without the extended storage space. As a sit and stand there are six more options. Two more options are available with the stroller seat and car seat combo. If you have two stroller seats, you have an additional four (or more) options. View the video below to see all the seating options in action.

I once picked up a used tandem two kid stroller from a parent. It was handy, sometimes. It was heavy and bulky, and my kids could only sit one way. I just stopped using it because it wasn’t providing enough value for me to continue using it. The Graco Uno2Duo is different. It still takes up some space, but with the stroller seat attached I can still fold it down and put it in my truck. And still, I have room for stuff around it.
It takes one hand to open and close the Uno2Duo stroller. Again, as a bigger stroller, it obviously weighs more than or standard umbrella stroller, but I can easily lift it in and out of my car with one hand. If the stroller seat is on the front, I can simply extend the base those extra 5″ for my middle child to stand on, pop the toddler in the front and we are good to go. Otherwise, it takes an extra 15 seconds to move the stroller seat to the back and put her car seat up front. Once it “Clicks” it is “Connected” and good to roll!
The brakes hold it in place when needed and are easy to release when it’s time to move. The handle is comfortably padded and the wheels roll smoothly over pavement and grass. I had no issues steering and I could fit the stroller through many an area a double-wide would never fit. Everything about the Uno2Duo Click Connect System is quick, easy and smooth. Pick up the Graco Uno2Duo Travel System at a Babies “R” US today!
