As baby trend double stroller systems go, this versatile product has so many worthy features that you need to take a look at each to appreciate them fully in one stroller. The Baby Trend Sit N Stand Ultra is the last word in convenience, modernity, safety, and style.
Car seats are sold separately. Suppose you get yourself two such seats from brands like Graco Snugride Classic Fit, Baby Trend, or Britax. You can now use those car seats for this stroller, veritably transforming it into a travel system; one of the most flexible features you will ever find in stroller systems of this product type and range. Other compatible products include Peg Perego, Aprica, Safety 1st, and Evenflo. For better car seat fitting, you may need to remove the canopy; it is detachable.
The Elixir’s grey and lavender look and the Phantom’s silver and black look are the two varieties you will find for this stroller.
Its easy fold feature makes transport and storage of this stroller quite fast and delay-free.
Something special has to be said about the child tray. Capable of swinging away to one side, older kids can easily gain access to the front seat (they will need to be lifted and placed, though). In addition to that, the cup holders on this stroller enjoy covered storage, as they do on the parent tray. There is an option for a second cupholder to cater to the needs of the rear-facing child.
Not only is the shade canopy quite extensive, it can also be removed if it is getting in the way of things. A 5-point harness imparts outstanding child safety to the baby in the front seat.
With all these riding positions, it is little wonder how the Baby Trend Sit N Stand Ultra earned its 4-star rating on Amazon. Speaking of which, the ridiculously low price is quite the bargain for a stroller that packs so many options.
If you are going to buy a Chicco car seat, be prepared to find that it only fits on the back of the Baby Trend Sit N Stand Ultra. This goes against the very idea of using the rear seat for a toddler who wants to stand or even sit down for a bit. You will also get a strap along with the Chicco car seat to help tie it down. The strap is too short to be of any use.
This is merely an option that you can do without. After all, there are other car seat brands (look above) that fit like a charm. Graco car seats are the best in this regard.
The front seat can indeed recline but it does not go all the way, meaning you will not have a flat reclining angle for a child to sleep. The simple tubing and framework for the Baby Trend Sit N Stand Ultra renders it quite stylish. Based on the color choice (Phantom or Elixer) you can be sure that the stroller will stand out in any setting.
One of the major downsides to this stroller is that the front seat is a little close to the wheels. While this will certainly not be a problem for little kids, they grow up fast and their feet can reach the wheels at that time.
All said and done, the practical appeal of varied seating positions, diverse car seat accomodations, large storage basket, durable frame, washable fabric and versatility add to the practical allure and excellence of this baby trend double stroller system.
