Graco Pace Stroller Review by Baby Gizmo

Sharing is caring!

Knowing that not everyone wants to drop a mint on a baby stroller, we are sticking with our goal to review more budget-friendly strollers and other gear for parents. Today we are talking about the lightweight, easy-to-fold, and travel stroller – the Graco Pace Stroller.


Graco Pace

The Graco Pace stroller accommodates up to 50 lbs. The seat measures 13″ wide with a short 16″ setback and a measurement of 24″ from seat back to canopy. There is an adjustable, 5-point harness with an easy, break-away buckle and an one-handed deep reclining seat.

A travel stroller needs a lot of basket real estate. There is a large, easy-to-access basket under the seat that definitely fits a large diaper bag and/or baby essentials.

Graco Pace HANDLE

The handle is non-adjustable and measures 40″ from ground to handle. We definitely think taller parents should try out the stroller before buying because the handle may be too short for the taller folks.

The Pace canopy is a two-panel sunshade that stops short of full coverage. A good travel stroller needs a big canopy so we’d love to see Graco add a pop-out sun visor for more protection but we do appreciate the mesh peek-a-boo window on top that not only lets us peek in at our little rider but allows air to circulate through the stroller seat.


stroller wheels

The Graco Pace rolls on two 9″ wheels in the back and a double 5″ wheel in the front. The front wheel is a swivel wheel that has the ability to lock straight for a bit of “mommy terrain” such as grass, playground mulch and gravel but the stroller is best on smooth surfaces.

If you are looking for a stroller with an easy fold, this one could be it. The Pace folds easily with one hand into a rather compact package and even sports a carry handle for transporting. The automatic lock is a nice touch and the unfold is just as easy as the fold.

The Graco Pace retails for $99 and is a good option for those parents looking for a budget-friendly stroller. While we’d love to see the canopy be a little larger and the wheels definitely won’t last you through 5 kids, the stroller is sturdy, sports TWO snack/parent trays and has a super easy fold.

I'd love this stroller IF the footrest worked better when the body was in the reclined position. As it is, our 1-year-old granddaughter can't sleep in this stroller because of the awkward position of her lower legs and feet when she's laying down. I may try to rig up a platform extension for her, or I may just put the stroller out on the curb and look for a better one. Also, the 1-handed recline is balky - works sometimes, not others.
