Mockingbird’s Single-to-Double Stroller Designed for Growing Families

If you’ve spent any time lurking in parent groups on Facebook, you’ve probably heard about the Mockingbird Stroller. While they’ve only been around since 2019, Mockingbird has become the kind of gear that gets name dropped between friends—in part because their strollers boast a lot of the features you typically see in luxury strollers, at around half the cost.

Mockingbird’s Single-to-Double Stroller builds on that foundation with one key upgrade—it grows with your family. When you add the second seat, it can ride 19 different ways (and with the newly added Riding Board, you can even push three kiddos at once). Babylist Scout Julie reviewed the Mockingbird Single-to-Double Stroller back in 2020 when it first launched (note: the price has changed since the original review—it’s now $450).

Here’s what earns Mockingbird’s stroller that Facebook parent group mention.

What It Does

  • Grows with Your Family: The nice thing about the Mockingbird Single-to-Double Stroller is that you don’t have to choose between a single or a double—it starts out as a single stroller, and then you can add the 2nd Seat Kit as your family expands.
  • Infant-Friendly Adapters: There are a ton of options for Car Seat Adapters if you want to turn your stroller into a travel system—including Graco, Chicco, Britax, Evenflo, Nuna, UPPAbaby, Maxi-Cosi, Cybex and Baby Jogger. You can also opt for the infant Carriage or, even more affordably, the Infant Seat Insert to make this stroller newborn-friendly.
  • Smooth Ride: Mockingbird gets compared to luxury stroller brands in part because of the built-in-suspension and front-locking wheel that makes for a smooth ride regardless of the terrain. The wheels are also designed to never go flat or pop.
  • Parent-Friendly Flexibility: It’s not just that there are a lot of different seating arrangements to choose from with the Mockingbird Single-to-Double Stroller (19 if we’re counting). It’s that it is actually easy to adjust those seating configurations on the go. Push a few buttons and you can switch the direction your baby rides (parent-facing or world-facing), recline the seat, adjust the handlebars, etc. (watch Julie’s video to see it all in action).
  • Real Features for Real Life: Mockingbird also thought about the small-but-significant details that go into everyday adventures—like an easy-to-access storage basket that holds up to 25 lbs, a zipper on the foot rest to sweep out the inevitable stroller crumbs, a magnetic peek-a-boo window so you can peek in on a sleeping baby without waking them up and more.
  • One-Handed Fold: Always worth mentioning, this stroller folds with one hand (even with both seats attached).

In single mode, the Mockingbird Stroller can hold up to 50 lbs, and in double mode, it can hold up to 45 lbs per seat. Keep in mind this doesn’t make for the lightest stroller, but few things involving two babies ever are. Also, while this stroller does fold with both seats attached, you may need to remove the second seat and adapters if you’re going to try and store it in a smaller trunk space.

Why You’d Want That

Because Mockingbird started as a direct-to-consumer brand (aka they didn’t go through traditional stores to sell their product), they’ve been able to pack luxury stroller features into a more affordable piece of gear—the Single-to-Double Stroller comes in at $450. Which means if you’re looking at more expensive strollers, but balking at the price, Mockingbird is a solid way to save money without sacrificing quality and functionality.

Meanwhile if you’re eyeballing budget strollers, Mockingbird is a pretty major leap forward in quality— both in comfort for your baby and in added features for you (particularly that smooth push)—for only a little bit more in price. And rather than having to trade up to an entirely new stroller if your family grows, you can add the 2nd Seat Kit for $145.

And with those bells and whistles, you also get a really user-friendly stroller. Aka you aren’t going to get into an assembling-Swedish-furniture fight with your partner trying to set it up or adjust it. Which might be worth it all by itself. You can watch Julie’s video to get a more up-close look at this parent-loved gear to see if it’s the right fit for your family.
