Weight

Very Good – 7/10

Brakes

Very Good – 8/10

The Graco Roomfor2 Stroller has an effective braking mechanism. The 2-step braking mechanism is relatively easy to engage and disengage, and can bring the tandem double stroller to a halt with a light press of the brake pedal. On top of that, the brakes are sandal-friendly.

Compact

Very Good – 8/10

“My two year old fit perfect on the sit while the baby is on the carseat. Next couple of months my baby will be able to sit on the front which will give more room on the back sit”

Ease of Use

Very Good – 8/10

It is very easy to use the Graco Roomfor2 Stroller. The stroller can be easily folded with one hand, and the double stroller can be maneuvered and steered with ease. Access to its large storage basket is unobstructed, and adjusting the recline of the child seat is also effortlessly easy. The stroller is however less versatile in terms of seat convertibility. The infant car seat can only be attached to the front seat.

Folding

Very Good – 8/10

The Graco Roomfor2 Stroller is fairly easy to fold – following 3 simple steps. The compacted unit locks itself for easier transportation. Furthermore, it is a one-hand folding mechanism which means that your other hand is free to care for your baby.

Grip

Very Good – 7/10

This stroller is rated 7 out of 10 for this category. The handlebar is padded with foam for maximum comfort and grip. While the handlebar is not adjustable, many reviewers acknowledge that the handlebar is at a comfortable angle for handling.

Maneuverability

Very Good – 7/10

The Graco Roomfor2 Stroller is relatively easy to maneuver and steer for a double stroller. its swivel front wheels can be locked for better maneuverability when strolling over uneven terrain.

“It was the best purchase I could have made. It was perfect for all the walking at Disney. Both of my kids rode in it the whole time. I like this one especially because the front seat folds down almost flat for when my 1 year old needed a nap.”

Rough Terrain

Fair – 4/10

The Graco Roomfor2 Stroller is not suitable for rough terrain. The stroller only has suspension on its front two wheels, which is not sufficient to provide a smooth ride for the children. Many parents have misunderstood that with the added weight (the combined weight of 2 children) the stroller becomes more stable – it is unfortunately not the case for the Graco Roomfor2 Stroller. Experts have reviewed that “all-terrain” strollers would be a better option if you are constantly on uneven roads.

Accessories

Very Good – 7/10

The stroller comes with a large basket, 5 point harness for the front seat and a wait belt for the rear bench, and parent and child trays. Reviewers have noted that the tray compartments in the Graco Roomfor2 Stroller are large and deep enough to hold wallets, phones and keys.

Easy to Assemble

Fair – 4/10

Assembling the Graco Roomfor2 Stroller is difficult ang time-consuming. It is noted that it is quite difficult to figure out the installation of the back axel, and you may require more than one person to set up the tandem double stroller.

Easy to Clean

Very Good – 8/10

It is relatively easy to clean up the padded seat of the stroller. The stroller canvas fabric is easy to spot clean and removing dirt is effortless.

“I love that it’s easy to open and close, can do it one handed. And it’s light weight too. It doesn’t take a up a lot of space and is one of the easiest double type strollers to maneuver.”

Storage

Very Good – 8/10

The Graco Roomfor2 Stroller offers a large storage basket underneath the front seat and behind the rear bench. It can easily store a decent-sized diaper bag and still have room for snacks and toys. However, it is important to note that access to the storage basket is only from the rear and the child at the back can hinder your direct access to it. The child needs to come out of the back seat for you to reach into the storage basket.

Child Comfort

Good – 6/10

The multi-position recline and padded seat make for a very comfortable ride – for the child at the front. However, when the front seat is fully reclined, it compromises on the space available at the back for the older child to sit on the rear bench. The child at the back will only have the option to stand on the platform. The Graco Roomfor2 Stroller only features front suspended wheels, which may not provide the smoothest of ride over bumpy roads.

Sun CAnopy

Fair – 4/10

The Graco Roomfor2 Stroller is rather small and does not provide full coverage for the child in the front seat. The child at the back certainly do not get covered at all by the canopy, hence it is advisable to get loads of sunscreen for your little ones especially for the older child.

Suspension

Fair – 4/10

The stroller is only equipped with suspension in the front wheels. The wheels are meant to absorb the shock from rough terrain. Without them at the back, the entire stroller will rock and would not be the best environment for your baby to sleep in.
