Mockingbird Stroller Single-to-Double Review – High Quality and Affordable?

mockingbird single to double stroller review

With upwards of 20 different configuration options, the Mockingbird Single-to-Double is a super versatile stroller. Now, because Mockingbird is direct to Consumer Company, they can provide the stroller at a much lower cost than their competitors.

Therefore, in this Mockingbird stroller review, I am going to cover the features that make the Mockingbird Single-to-Double, a great option for families looking for a forever stroller.

Okay, I am going to let you in on a dirty little secret. Whether you are buying a relatively inexpensive stroller like the Mockingbird Single-to-Double, or the uber-expensive Silver Cross Aston Martin Surf 2 for, yes, $5,000. Yeah, there is an Aston Martin stroller, and it costs $5,000, and I want one immediately. However, here is the secret; they are all the same.

Then why even read this review? Well, because feeling like you made the right buying decision gives you a smug sense of control in an otherwise uncertain world. The differences boil down to; do you want a stroller with quality durable material? Alternatively, do you want one with bamboo lining and a gold-plated frame?

We do not want you to waste your money. However, all that being said, I am super happy to be proven wrong.

All right, let us reign this back in and take a top-down look at the features on the stroller at hand, starting with the handlebar. Now, the Mockingbird stroller handlebar is wrapped in stylish brown leather and provides a super comfortable grip.

The one-handed fold mechanism can be found in the middle of the handlebar, and as its name implies, it allows you to fold the stroller one-handed. Despite the double stroller‘s size, the one-handed fold works seamlessly.

Looking a bit further down the handlebar, you’ll find side buttons that adjust the level of the handlebars, which is super convenient when you’re tired of pushing the stroller, but you have a fully capable and energetic eight-year-old who can do the job just as well.

The canopy has a UPF 50 plus rating and is weatherproof. Not just waterproof, but weatherproof. So rain, Snow, Sunshine, hurricanes, Twisters, Tropical storms, dust storms, and Locusts, you are good to go.

It also comes with the spyhole, or Mockingbird calls a peekaboo window. Also, the underside of the canopy has high contrast designs that are printed on it to help promote early childhood vision development. The back of the canopy can be unzipped, allowing for more airflow through the canopy. As a free bonus, the Mockingbird stroller comes with the sunshade that covers the entire seat when fully extended, even covering your child’s legs.

The aluminum frame is quite sturdy and weighs in at about 26 pounds, which is light considering its single-to-double nature. Underneath the stroller, you will find a cavernous basket that can hold up to 25 pounds, which is the equivalent of two bundles of decorative Birchwood. Besides, I know this from experience. The basket can easily be accessed from not just the back of the stroller, but the front as well, by lifting on the footrest.

Wheels: They construct the wheels of a solid foam material. Therefore, you will never have to worry about flat tires. You can lock the front wheels in place to help further stabilize the already smooth ride. Now, I read an interesting car and driver review recently that said something to the effect that the chassis is fluid and communicative. And I would have to make the same assessment about the Mockingbird.

When you went to park the stroller, simply engage the one-foot braking mechanism, simple. Therefore, the thing that makes the Mockingbird so versatile is the second seat kit, but it will cost you an additional 120 bucks.

Convertible: Now if you are thinking, Nah, I am going to be good with one kid, well, we will keep our fingers crossed, but you sure about that? So if you are one of those pie in the sky, I’m only going to have one kid type, then the great thing about buying the Mockingbird stroller is, you know, use it as a single but in the off chance a second one comes around, you’ll already have a stroller that can be converted to handle that unexpected life event.

Accessories: Still, with the additional costs of the second seat, it is going to be much cheaper than the high-end models like the UPPAbaby Cruz, which starts at around 700 bucks. Now, if you have a newborn, you can buy a car seat adapter for about 30 bucks, which is compatible with a long list of car seat brands. So seeing if your car seat brand is compatible with this adapter, similarly, go to Mockingbird’s site and you can reference their list there.

Now to use the second seat, you will need to attach these top and bottom adapters, which creates an additional space for the second seat to fit without banging into the first seat. The adapters themselves are super simple to put on and take off, so do not worry about them becoming too bothersome to use or being a deal-breaker.

The seats are also easy to attach in either a forward or rear-facing position. Now, once we attach them, you can recline the seats by pulling up on the lever near the canopy. Now, given that there are two seats, they can be rear-facing or front-facing, they can be reclined in multiple positions, and you can attach a car seat using the adapter, you end up with around 20 different configurations to choose from.

Now, I will not go through all the different setups, but just picture the old infomercial for the Infinite Dress, where women could wrap a dress 25 different ways, and it was all they had to pack for a cruise. Oh man, remember cruises, why don’t we do that?

Anyway, if you need more than that visual, the Mockingbird website provides a handy infographic detailing all the unique positions and configurations. Also, according to the Mockingbird website, they will soon add the Squad configuration to their Solo and Sib’s configuration line-up. This platform attaches to the rear of the stroller for your big’un to stand on. And it looks fun as hell.

Therefore, if you are a soon to be parent, and are maybe having twins or know that you want to have multiple kids around the same age, like a crazy person, then this stroller is something you will want to look into, especially considering its relatively low price point.

There are not a lot of things to dislike about the stroller. I mean, I love the one-handed close feature. Although if I was going to be nit-picky, placing that mechanism in the middle of the handlebar makes it difficult to steer one-handed.

Another significant thing is the number of accessories you can choose from. The thought of having the power to decide the best way to like Tetris your kids into a stroller is like my dream come true.

However, I have one minor to somewhat major bone to pick with Mockingbird in that if I want to bring my oat milk, honey latte with me while using the stroller; I have to hold it because it does not include a cup holder.
