Comparing the UPPAbaby Double Stroller and the Zoe Twin | From a mom of 2 under 2

product recommendations

Anyone else get overwhelmed with how many baby product options there are!?

Maybe it’s just me, but when I buy something I like to think about a few things:

  • Ease of usage
  • Pricepoint
  • Durability
  • Longevity of usage

We had the UPPAbaby Vista stroller with my first born (almost 2) and we LOVED it. It was big and bulky at times, but it was perfect for strolling around our neighborhood on a later afternoon walk.

I could clip the car seat in, insert the bassinet attachment, or when he got older, move him to the upright toddler seat.

Recently, as a new mom of 2, I have been on the hunt for the perfect double stroller that was perfect, practical, and compact for our family. 

After several recommendations from you all, I decided to try to Zoe Twin. As well as, add all the double stroller attachments to my UPPAbaby Vista.

Here’s what I found when comparing the UPPAbaby Double Stroller and the Zoe Twin. 

Let's start with the UPPAbaby Stroller System:

Like I said above, I used this single stroller system with my son when he was an only child. And it was great!

When you purchase this stroller system, it comes with a toddler seat and a bassinet attachment. You can also purchase the car seat system additional, which fits into the stroller.

Here are all the ways you can use this system as a single stroller. 


Now, once you have another baby, you may want to transition this UPPAbaby stroller into a double stroller.

To do so, you will need some additional attachments & items: 

One fault in this system is that you are unable to use the bassinet or car seat on the upper section of the stroller in conjunction with the toddler seat. If you want to place the car seat on the upper adapters, you have to purchase a second Rumble seat, which is smaller than the original toddler seat included in the stroller purchase. 

Here are all the ways you can configure your UPPAbaby stroller system for a double stroller:

This stroller system is BIG and to fold, you have to remove both seats entirely. This makes this stroller require a lot time and effort. And takes up a lot of space when packing up in your vehicle.

You also will need an infant attachment with this stroller if you wish to use the upright seats with an infant below the age of 4 months. This infant insert only fits into the toddler seat, which requires your older child to sit in the smaller rumble seat (sold separately). 

This stroller has a lot of storage room on the bottom to fit many things, and you can also purchase additional add-ons like cup holders and organizers as well.

I think this is a VERY nice stroller, but this stroller is more practical with one child in comparison to using it with 2 or more. Additionally, the break and reclining system is complex and internal which means things can break and not be easily repaired. 

The total cost to convert this stroller from single to double stroller is approximately $1320. You can purchase this stroller system and all adapters and additional products on Amazon.

UPPAbaby also makes a double stroller that is more compact for travel. You can check that stroller out here.

Now, let’s move to the Zoe Twin. 

This stroller was a FAN FAVORITE for double strollers when I polled you all, and I now see why...

This stroller shipped super fast and came in the mail just a few days after ordering. This stroller retails for $529 and I also added the organizer which was an added $35. Making the total of this stroller $564. 

This stroller was easy to assemble after the kids went down one night and I was able to do most of it on my own. There were minimal pieces and all of the parts were super lightweight, so heavy lifting was not required.  

The stroller is super easy to fold and is very compact when folding up. This stroller can easily fit into my small SUV and the stroller handle also folds down to make this stroller even more compact. 

This stroller company does not make an infant insert, but states that the seat the stroller includes is appropriate for babies 4 months +. I already had the UPPAbaby infant insert on hand, so I was able to insert this into the Zoe stroller with little effort. This infant insert is also compatible with other strollers based on feedback from you all!

This stroller is pretty basic with not many bells and whistles, which I like. The break is manual, which means it would be difficult to become faulty and the reclining features of the seats are drawstring which also would be difficult to break.

This stroller also has a large basket under the seats to place a variety of things (bags, etc) and the stroller also comes with a detachable lap bar that can be replaced with two cup holders and a snack container. 

An added bonus is the cup holder for the parent that is included in the basic stroller for no added charge.  

This stroller is basic in comparison to the UPPAbaby Vista, but that’s what I love about it.

The website also sells a car seat attachment that is compatible with Nuna, Maxi Cosi, Cybex or Britax. 

This stroller brand makes a variety of sized strollers. For example, they have a single, double (which we have), triple, and quad. And you can buy additional add on seats on their website which adds to your current system. 

I truly think if I was building a baby registry again, I would register for the Zoe single with the UPPAbaby infant insert, and just add consecutive seats onto the Zoe if I had more children. Using the infant insert would allow me to use with a newborn in the fully reclined setting, which allows the stroller could grow with one child and multiples. This would save a ton of money in long run as well! 

Some Zoe extras I would consider putting on my registry would be:

I hope you learn from my mistakes and hope my experience helps you!

Have a great day!
