Baby Trend Sit N Stand Ultra Tandem Stroller Review
Are you looking for the best versatile stroller that will grow with your family? My wife and I found one, and we would like to share our experience with it through a review.
When my wife said that we would have baby number 2, our firstborn was only a baby herself. She was yet to get out of the car seat and have a seat of her own. At the time, we did not have much use for a stroller. We made do without one. However, baby number two changed the situation.
She was only 2 months pregnant when we bout the Baby Trend Sit N Stand Ultra Tandem. We loved how it performed. Even though we used it with one baby at the time, it proved to be quite the stroller. We were sure it would last to see baby number two come. But for that time, our little girl went to the car seat we installed in the front seat. She loved it there.
6 and ½ months later, baby number 2 was here. And an adorable little girl she was. By then, her older sister had outgrown the car seat. She gracefully accepted the back seat for her little sis to go in the car seat. She loved the back seat and stand-on platform configuration. And we could tell our newest member loved it in the stroller already. You never find such versatility, durability, quality and functionality in many strollers these days.
I was moved to write a review of the baby trend sit and stand ultra-Tandem Stroller to share our experience with the stroller. It has been in the family for over a year now. It’s holding up really well.
Features of the Baby Trend Sit N Stand Ultra Tandem Stroller
This stroller is most suitable for busy parents, especially those who have lots of errands to run out of the house. It comes in an amazing lightweight frame, compact when folded – and it does fold easily- and maneuvers well. It’s just great for the outdoor adventure. You can certainly you’re your way through busy streets with this stroller. Here are some of the most amazing features the sit and stand stroller offers:
Back Bench N Back Jump-On Platform
Padded bench seat and stand ensures your children the best comfort. They actually have a lot of fun during the entire stroll. This makes it even simpler and stress free running your errands.
You will be able to keep a constant eye on the children as they play around during the walk. When they tire, they can simply just jump on the stand-on back platform. Or take a back seat.
The back seats are padded for the child’s comfort. They are able to relax. There is a secure harness for strapping them in safely. The children actually enjoy this sit-and-stand stroller to the extent of even playing on the stroller when it’s parked at home. They say it’s quite comfortable.
You don’t want the stress of having to go for your daily strolls with bags full of diapers, changing clothes and foodstuff for the kids! Not only will this bag be bulky and wear on you as you push a heavy buggy, but also it will be hard to keep a close eye on the toddler whose running around waiting to jump on the back stand.
Baby Trend Sit N Stand Ultra Tandem buggy takes away the stress of carrying a bag for Utilities. It offers enough storage to carry everything you will need for every stroll.
There is a large storage basket under the seats. This is the main storage and can be used for large items like diaper bags and picnic baskets. There still be enough space left for other items.
Swivel Wheels; Lockable
Who said that children are hard to push or pull on the sidewalks especially when you have to make an abrupt turn or those emergency turns? The swivel wheels are able to make a 360 degree turn swiftly.
They are quite flexible. So, do not fear that the wheels can get stuck or just refuse to move. When I bought this sit and stand stroller the first thing I checked was the type of wheels it came with. The last stroller I had was quite the drag.
It maneuvered poorly and it was heavy – taking turns on an already difficult terrain was a pain. This one time the wheels jammed and I hadn’t noticed. I forced the stroller to moved only to realize that the wheels had broken – rendering me immobile.
Multi-Position Recline Front Seat
If you like your baby to sit up or lean back then this is a perfect Choice. The seats are well padded for comfort and they come with a five-point harness on the front seat to hold your baby in securely in the seat.
The front seat also reclines to a near flat position for a relaxed, smooth ride.
You can be able to adjust the seat a flat recline when your baby has fallen asleep. It’s then a stroller -cum- bed. I like this feature a lot. I don’t find this in other strollers.
Flexible Double Stroller
Baby Trend Sit N Stand Ultra Tandem Stroller is able to cater for two children. One baby -not able to walk on their own- and a toddler who’s grown enough to walk. The toddler is able to stand or seat in the rear of the stroller.
While they stand or seat, they are being protected by the bench hence making the stand to be quite safe for the child. The stand-on is located in the midsection of the stroller, an appreciated advantage for the stroller since the more weight exerted on the midsection the more stable the stroller becomes.
This makes it firm and hard to topple. The front seat is used to hold the baby and is padded with 5-point safety harness to secure your baby in the seat.
Quick to Clean; Easy to Maintain
The material used to make the sit and stand stroller allows easy cleaning and faster. All you need is some detergent, water and a piece of cloth. The fabric wipes off easily and drying takes only minutes.
Quite simple and not tiring at all. It took just 30 minutes to complete the cleaning process. Users are advises not to wash the fabric using machine wash before reading the manufacturer’s instructions.
The stroller is made of a durable frame. This talks a lot about the trust the manufacturers have over the durability of their product. Maintenance is easy for this stroller.
