The world of baby gear is a vast and confusing place to enter as a first-time parent. I had no idea I would be performing CIA-level internet searches when I was choosing products for our first baby in 2019. I would research one product, and find 20 brands that sold five different versions of that one item. It was absolutely overwhelming. We spent weeks watching product review videos on YouTube, especially for strollers.
Choosing a stroller felt like such a huge decision at the time. With so many choices available, we ended up making a list of priorities to help narrow things down. We wanted a stroller that was spacious, long-lasting, and easy to take in and out of the car. It was down to two strollers by the end of our search: Mockingbird’s Single-to-Double Stroller and another popular high-end brand (with a super high price tag). This may surprise you, but we did not pick the Mockingbird Stroller back then. And I went on to have buyer’s remorse almost immediately after.
The only reason I originally decided not to purchase the Mockingbird Single-to-Double Stroller was because I didn’t plan on having my kids close together. Looking back, it was a lapse in judgment on my part because the single stroller we purchased instead was nearly double the price and couldn’t be made into a double at all. Mockingbird’s Stroller works perfectly for one kid without any of its attachments, so it still would’ve been more affordable from the get-go. So not only did we spend an unnecessary amount of money on a single stroller, but I ended up pregnant with our second one week after my son’s first birthday. Yep, two under two.
Obviously, we sold that original stroller and purchased the Mockingbird Single-to-Double Stroller plus the 2nd Seat Kit immediately after. Here’s my Mockingbird Stroller review after having—and loving—it for the past three years.
It’s the only stroller you’ll ever need
Like I mentioned previously, the Mockingbird Stroller System is completely customizable and works for families both big and small. Start with the Single Stroller and choose from three different infant solutions to begin strolling with your little one from birth. Once they’re a little bigger, they can fit comfortably in the Toddler Seat and ride front or rear-facing. Adding a second? Purchase a 2nd Seat Kit to fit both kids comfortably. And if you decide on a third child, their Riding Board easily allows your oldest to ride along with the younger two.
The Single-to-Double Stroller has 19 total configurations, and we’ve tried and loved most of them by now. When our second was a newborn we used the Toddler Seat, Snack Tray, Car Seat Adapter, and Cup Holder religiously anytime we left the house. We then swapped the Car Seat Adapter for the 2nd Seat and transitioned from rear to forward-facing once she grew. Now that our son is older and prefers the freedom to walk around during outings, we’ve reconfigured it back to a single stroller but added the Riding Board attachment for him. It’s grown with us through every stage and has been a breeze to update according to our kids’ ages and needs.
It’s built for convenience and freedom
It’s too easy to feel stuck at home with two tiny and very needy kids, so having the ability to easily pack up and go is essential. The Mockingbird Stroller helps us do that thanks to its simple one-handed-fold feature and slim frame. As a vertically challenged mom with permanently full hands, I need a stroller that requires minimal effort to close up and lift into our SUV’s trunk. It takes us less than five minutes to pack up and go, even with both seats.
Mockingbird really thought of everything when designing this stroller because every detail was made with busy families in mind. The basket underneath holds up to 25 pounds so we’ve been able to use it for diaper bags, totes, groceries, toys, blankets, you name it. Even our extra fluffy cat uses it for long naps when it’s parked inside the house—it’s that spacious. Mockingbird also has a try-at-home policy for 30 days, so you can test the stroller and ensure it fits into your life. If it’s not right for you, you can return it for free, no questions asked.
Mockingbird Single-to-Double Stroller
It’s luxuriously designed but affordably priced
We spent close to a grand on our first stroller that couldn’t even do half of what the Mockingbird Stroller can. Yet the Mockingbird Stroller is priced at $450 to use as a single. Add on the 2nd Seat Kit to turn it into a double, bringing the cost to $595—that’s almost half the price as similar premium strollers. If you’re using mom math, then you’ve just saved $400 and can use that towards more baby gear (or other fun stroller accessories).
Even though this stroller is far more affordable than other luxury strollers, it’s doesn’t sacrifice quality or looks with its design options. Its sleek, modern design features vegan leatherette details in Penny and Black, along with five canopy colors and two patterns to choose from. You can also add their Snack Tray, Parent Organizer, Rain Cover, Foot Muff, or Mosquito Net to further customize your stroller system to your family’s exact needs.
Mockingbird also provides above and beyond customer service to top it all off, plus their stroller comes with a lifetime warranty. It’s so reassuring to know they stand behind their products and are always there for me if I need anything. It just further solidifies my love for the brand and is one of many reasons I recommend the Mockingbird Stroller to every new mom I know.
