Nuna Demi Grow 2018

Convertible strollers that can be used with a toddler seat, infant car seat or bassinet are a standard nowadays. That’s why manufacturers go even further and design strollers that can be not only convert to a pram or travel system, but also expand to accommodate second or even third kid!

Nuna strollers are designed to be simple and functional. This brand offers few convertible strollers that can be pushed with different seats, however these pushchairs are only suitable for one baby. That is going to change in 2018 with brand’s new stroller – Nuna Demi Grow that expands from a single to a double model.

If you need only a single stroller that accepts different add-ons, here are my favorite convertible strollers. You may also want to read my list of all top-quality strollers in 2019.

Seating options

Nuna Demi Grow features 23 seating combinations! It is truly all-in-one stroller. Parents can attach to the frame two toddler seats, two bassinets, two infant car seats (adapters for PIPA car seats – included!) for their twins or they can also mix the seats for kids of different ages.

Thanks to so many seating options this stroller is really smart investment and can serve you for around 3 years. Click here to see what’s included in the basic set.

Toddler seat

This seat is suitable from 6 months, when the baby has neck and head control. Nuna’s regular seat has 3-position recline from upright to flat position. There is also adjustable leg rest with integrated footrest. Reclining the seat and adjusting the leg rest is one-handed.

Nuna Demi Grow 2018 comes with a regular toddler seat that features one-hand reclined and adjustable leg rest

Toddler seat is also reversible, so your baby can face you or the World during your strolls. It’s very useful feature, because when the baby is younger the seat can face you so you could keep an eye on your little one, and when the baby grows you can reverse it so your baby could watch the surroundings (we all know how curious toddlers are). Reversing the seat is very simple, everything clicks in the right spot.

There is also a bumper bar that rotates and can be removed for easier taking baby in and out of the seat.

The seat is also equipped with 5-point no-rethread harness that is super easy to adjust as the baby grows.

There’s one more fantastic feature: this is an all-weather seat as the padding is detachable. The breathable mesh parts (hidden under the seat padding) will be very useful during warm summer days.

If you would like to use Nuna Demi Grow for two toddlers, you will need to buy second seat. Good thing about it is that it has the same capacity as the main seat (50 lbs) – it’s exactly the same seat like the included with the stroller (not like The UPPAbaby VISTA Rumble Seat which is smaller than the regular seat). And you don’t need adapters to attach the second seat – so you don’t have to spend extra money!

Bassinet

It is suitable from birth to around 6 months. It’s equipped with high-quality comfortable mattress that provides proper position and support for newborn’s back and head. There is also a convenient handle which simplifies baby from the house to the stroller.

This carrycot is sold separately. More information about the price and available colors you can find here.

Infant Car Seat

Nuna Demi Grow can be also turned into a travel system for one or two infants. This stroller includes two sets of adapters for infant car seats from Nuna PIPA collection. Moreover there will be also receivers for Maxi-Cosi car seats. Infant car seats need to be bought separately (see the current price of NUNA PIPA).

Nuna Demi Grow – Options for toddler and infant

If you want to use this stroller for kids of different ages, you have two options: bassinet + toddler seat or infant car seat + toddler seat.

Good thing is that the seat for toddler can be attached in lower position while the bassinet/infant car seat attaches above it. So you can keep your younger baby (newborn or infant) closer to you and your older baby can ride in the bottom seat.

Nuna Demi Grow 2018 with infant car seat and toddler seat
Nuna Demi Grow allows to attach infant car seat and bassinet in upper position so you could keep your newborn closer to you, and the toddler seat can be attached at the bottom

Toddlers loves to ride in the bottom, it gives them sort of their own, private, enclosed space. And you don’t have to worry their view is blocked! They still have good view on both sides. Of course you have also other seating options, and the infant car seat can be also attaches an the bottom.

When the bassinet is on top and the toddler seat at the bottom, the older child has a bit less space, but at least the seat can be still reclined!

Sibling seat is sold separately – on PishPosh Baby you can check its current price and see if there are any discounts right now (check it here).

Canopy

The main seat has really big canopy with flip out sun visor. This sunshade covers the baby really nice. There is also mesh peek-a-boo window which give extra air-flow on hot days.

There is also one useful accessory available for Nuna Demi Grow – Dream Drape which ensure that you baby won’t be disturbed during nap time. It gives child privacy and protection from environment. And the best part is that the Dream Drape is included with the stroller – it is hidden in zippered part of the canopy.

Nuna Demi Grow 2018 has AWESOME extendable canopy that fully covers the baby. There is also Dream Drape that allows the baby for undisturbed nap

So when you want to provide your baby with a cozy space for undisturbed nap on-the-go you just unzip the canopy and stretch out the Dream Drape. It’s super convenient and handy! It also provides full shade from the sun and wind, without reducing air-flow!

The is also Dream Drape for bassinet and infant car seat.

Wheels & Suspension

Nuna Demi Grow is equipped with 4 wheels made of high-quality and durable foam. They cushion the ride almost as good as the air-filled tires. Thanks to these foam wheels you don’t have to worry about inflating or having flat tire and your baby can enjoy really smooth ride.

Front wheels are pivoting which makes the stroller more nimble (very useful in tight spaces and corners), but they can be also locked which gives better stability on more harsh terrain.

The rear wheels come with fenders to protect the baby in lower seat from dirt and prevent him from touching the wheels

These wheels are pretty big therefore they can handle many types of terrain really well, without wobbling or getting stuck. There is one more great thing about the wheels: there are fenders for the rear wheels that protects parents and the stroller from debris and dirt and prevent child from touching the wheels and getting hurt. You can take this stroller over gravel, muddy trails or puddles without worrying you and the stroller will get dirty.

There is also custom dual suspension which also cushions the ride. Thanks to that, your baby will be able to seat and nap comfortably and won’t get bumped-around.

The wheels roll really smoothly and the stroller is easy to push, even with two toddler seats. As for a double stroller, it’s very nimble.

Brake

There is single-action foot-operated brake placed next to the right rear wheel. The pedal is easy to press and lift.

Handlebar

This stroller has also an adjustable handlebar to make pushing comfortable for all-heights parents. I love that it adjusts by extension, not rotation, because it gives more spaces behind the stroller for taller parents with long legs. So if you’re tall, you don’t have to worry about kicking the back of the buggy.

Storage basket

Under the seat the is a large storage basket which has a special extended design to provide easy access, no matter which seat are you using.

However, when the Nuna Demi Grow is expanded to a double version the second seat (regular one or bassinet) partially or completely covers the basket. But you don’t have to worry about lack of storage space. The underseat basket can be removed and converted to a shopping basket (at least the UK version has that option).

Size, Weight and Folding

As other convertible and expandable strollers, Nuna Demi Grow isn’t light and small. It has to be strong to hold two toddlers! The stroller with one seat weighs 27.4 lbs and gets more heavy and bulky when we add another seat (but it’s not so terrible for a double stroller!).

The frame has the same size in single and double version, so as for a single stroller it is pretty big, but quite compact for a double buggy. It’s much more compact than regular tandem strollers (not to mention side-by-side strollers!).

The lower seat is partially in the storage basket – because of that Nuna Demi Grow is more compact than other tandem strollers

Folding Nuna Demi Grow takes literally few seconds – you just need lift two toggles on both sides of the handlebar and the stroller will collapse. After that the stroller stands on its own and there’s automatic lock that prevents it from opening during storing or transporting.

As every other expandable stroller it is quite big even when folded, but you shouldn’t have any problems with fitting it in your car trunk. Keep in mind that folding and storing is easier when the seats are detached. And there is a handle that makes carrying the folded stroller up and down the stairs more convenient.

Quality & Materials

Demi Grow offers luxurious leatherette handlebar and bumper bar which gives the stroller really chic look. The frame is also made of high-quality materials which make it stable and robust.

As every other Nuna stroller this one has also softly padded seat. Besides, this stroller looks so stylish and beautiful, so you can be sure you’ll get a lot of compliments from other parents!

Accessories

Demi Grow comes with few accessories included

Nuna Demi Grow includes adapters for Pipa infant car seats (two sets), fenders and rain cover. There are also few accessories that you can buy separately: travel bag, bassinet and second toddler seat.

Nuna Demi Grow Color Versions

All-new Nuna stroller will be available in 3 colors: Frost, Caviar and Aspen. All fashions look very beautiful and chic.

Nuna Demi Grow Release Date & Pricing

Nuna Demi Grow release date was scheduled for the beginning of 2018 and the stroller was on time! It’s already available on the market!

Nuna Demi Grow is a top-quality, expensive stroller. The basic set includes only one toddler seat, if you want to expand the stroller into a double version or simply use it from birth, you will need to purchase the infant car seat, carrycot and sibling seat separately, so it’s unfortunately additional cost.

Nuna Demi Grow price is very similar to the UPPAbaby VISTA’s. It’s always good to look for sales and discounts to get this high-end stroller a bit cheaper!

Nuna Demi Grow Review – Conclusion

My rate:

This stroller is awesome choice for parents who have one child, but plan on having more children soon or for parents who already have two kids (twins or toddler and infant). It grows with the baby and adapts when the family gets bigger. With all the seating options it offers it will meet your and your children needs.

And you can forget about clumsy double strollers! This one is agile and easy to push and turn even in a double version. It rolls like a breeze!

  1. With car seat on top, Can you put the toddler seat on the bottom or do you have to buy a sibling seat to put on the bottom . Just wondering because With uppababy vista you can’t put the toddler seat on the bottom, you need to buy a rumble seat to put on the bottom.

    1. Hi Susan! Yes, you can put the main toddler seat on the bottom. This makes it different from Vista, you don’t have to purchase the sibling seat 🙂

  2. Hi! Kids number 3 and 4 will be 17 months apart and we need new car seat because ours expires soon. Love the Pipa lite but need a double stroller. Can you use top as a toddler seat and attach car seat to the bottom? (Or can you only put car seat on the bottom when using another infant attachment up top)? I’m not sure my toddler will like being on the bottom…

    1. Hi!
      Yes, technically you can attach the infant car seat on the bottom and the toddler seat on top. However, there is one issue. The toddler seat must be facing out, and the only way to attach the infant car seat on the bottom is also facing out (the stroller is just designed this way…), so you won’t be able to see your newborn baby actually. I don’t think it’s a practical configuration and I don’t recommend it.
      It’s definitely better to keep the newborn on top facing you and keep an eye on him/her. Toddlers usually like to sit on the bottom seat, but only if it’s facing out and if it’s the front seat – so they could observe everything around. Unfortunately Demi Grow design doesn’t allow for this configuration (because the bottom seat is the rear seat – and it’s not perfect for curious toddlers).

      However, there are other double/expandable strollers that are compatible with Nuna Pipa Lite infant car seat and allow you to put the car seat on top facing you, and toddler seat on the bottom facing out – in a front seat. So you don’t have to stick to this one (unless you’ve already purchased Demi). For example Baby Jogger City Select and Baby Jogger City Select LUX are compatible with Nuna Pipa Lite, and allow you to put the car seat on top, and toddler can sit in the front seat facing the world. I think it’s the most convenient seating configuration for newborn and toddler.:)

  3. Hello,

    I’m very interested in buying the nuna half grow.
    but I would like to have advice for use on gravel roads or in the forest. Are you satisfied?
    wouldn’t it be better a tire stroller, 3 wheels, type TFK adventure?

    thank you for your feedback.

    Yannick

      1. Hi Yannick, so sorry for late reply.
        If you’re looking for more off-road stroller, I definitely recommend you something with pumped tires. Especially for the forest 🙂 Nuna Demi Grow rolls smoothly on many types of terrain (including gravel roads), but on paths with bark chips and roots it will wobble more.

        Stroller with 3 wheels and air-filled tires will be easier to push and the baby won’t get bumped around. I’m not familiar with TFK stroller, but you can check jogging strollers like Thule Urban Glide 2, BOB Revolution Flex, or Joovy Zoom 360 Ultralight/ Burley Solstice if you have smaller budget. These strollers are made for jogging.

        If you don’t want a jogging stroller, then I recommend you Bumbleride Indie – it has air-filled tires, 3 wheels, it’s all-terrain so it will handle forest paths, and it’s less bulky than jogging strollers.

        Take care 🙂

  4. Hi,
    We are thinking of buying this as a single for our first baby, due soon. We’re drawn to the features and aesthetic but we are also focussed on getting something with a higher seat (as I am quite tall). The seat on this seems to be high but isn’t mentioned as a feature. I’ve seen some online demonstrations that show that you can place the upper toddler seat on the adaptors to to lift it higher and create more space for the under seat when using it as a double. Could you tell me if this is the case? Can a single seat be placed on adaptors to lift it higher, even when being used as a single?

    1. Hi Joyce!
      I found one review on YT that shows that you can attach the toddler seat higher up on the frame with some extenders. It’s the first time I’m hearing about it and I’m afraid these extenders are available in UK, but not in the US. I checked NUNA’s website and it seems like these additional adapters-extenders are included in the set in UK, but I don’t see them in the set that is sold in the US.
      Anyway, if you get these extenders I think technically it is possible to use them in a single mode to have the seat a bit higher, but I’m not sure how it would affect strollers stability and weight distribution..
      By the way, if you need a single stroller with high seat you may want to check Nuna MIXX 2019 – the latest edition has a pretty high seat, the design is beautiful (I think it’s even prettier than Demi Grow) and the quality is of course top notch.

    2. Hi, Just an FYI, if you want those seat risers and the removable shopping basket, you can order the stroller from the UK and have it shipped to the US. Not all stores will ship to the US (in fact, most say on their website that international shipping isn’t available) but if you send them a message, they can make it happen. Shipping may be like $50-$60 but the stroller is actually cheaper in the UK by about $150. So you’d be saving money anyway even with the shipping! Stores like John Lewis in the UK sell it for 600 Euros (about $660 USD). Last I checked US stores sell it for $800, not including tax or shipping if applicable.

  5. Hi Zoe, would you happen to know if the toddler seat from this new stroller can be used with the NUNA MIXX 2 stroller body? with or without adopters? WE have a NUNA MIXX 2 and our girl is almost 2 yrs old with really long legs that don’t fit!! and hang way off:) we are trying to find a solution for that. would love your advise, thanks so much

    1. Hi! The seat from Demi Grow cannot be used with Mixx stroller. But I saw on Amazon footrest extensions – maybe it could be a good solution for your daughter stroller?:)

  6. Bought Demi grow for twins, we need two bassinets. I think there is a design fault. The hood on the bottom bassinet will not fully go up or even stay half way up. This means rain cover doesn’t fit. Baby on bottom will get soaked. It will also be in full sun as the sun shade doesn’t fit either. Very disappointed and we have mum to be anxious as twins due in 4 weeks.

    1. Hi Linden, you’re right – the bottom bassinet canopy opens only partially. The brand wanted to make this stroller more compact and shorter than other expandable strollers so the bassinets are very close to each other 🙁

    2. Hi this is interesting. I’m surprised more people have not complained about this publicly. I think this stroller really needs to have those seat risers to raise the upper seat/bassinet/car seat and create more space between the top and bottom. Perhaps that way, the canopy on the bottom seat or bassinet can be fully opened. Unfortunately, the US model doesn’t have these risers (nor does it have the removable grocery basket). It’s a shame because it limits the product. Even worse, the US model is about $150 more expensive than the UK model despite being more limited!

  7. Hello
    on the Review you say “This stroller includes two sets of adapters for infant car seats from Nuna PIPA collection. Moreover there will be also receivers for Maxi-Cosi car seats.”
    Which receivers do you mean?

    1. Hi there!
      Demi Grow has included two sets of adapters for Nuna infant car seats (Pipa, Pipa Lite and Pipa Lite LX) so you can attach two car seats without spending any extra money on additional adapters.
      At first, the brand was supposed to release adapters for Maxi Cosi too and sell them separately, but they didn’t release it. So right now Demi Grow works only with Nuna car seats.

    1. Hello Sadie,
      Unfortunately Demi Grow is only compatible with Nuna Pipa Series car seats and includes two adapters for them.

  8. Hi I would like to know where or if I can purchase the nuna demi grow stroller separate without the bassinet ,car seat,or toddler seat

    1. Hi Kelly. Nuna Demi Grow is sold as a set: frame + toddler seat. Bassinet and car seat are sold separately 🙂

  9. Does the Nuna Demi Grow Stroller fit inside of the Nuna Wheeled Travel Bag? If not, can you please recommend a suitable travel bag?

      1. Apparently it wil only fit the frame though so where do they expect you to put the two seats? We need another option to fit the entire double stroller system if you have any ideas!

        1. Hi Erin!
          Maybe check the travel bags for double strollers for example at Amazon, they should be big enough to fit the frame and two seats. It’s a cheaper solution than buying two Nuna bags..

  10. How does the bottom basket detach when you are using both seats so you can still have storage? I Love everything about her this travel system except that you lose your storage w two kids. I’m having twins and already have a 3 year old so storage is a must. I can’t find anything comparable other than the City Jogger Luxe and then you loose ventilation and 10 lbs plus ease of operation.

    1. Hi Crystal! I attach the picture where you can see how the Nuna Demi Grow storage basket looks like. There is additional stiff bin attached onto the stretchy basket. You need to detach this bin before installing the second seat (you need to fold down the back of the stretchy basket as well). There are some straps inside this removable bin so you can carry it and use for example for shopping.
      Here you can see the removable storage bin on Nuna Demi Grow
      When two seats are attached the stretchy basket is rather useless, especially if a bigger toddler sis on the lower seat. Even if you could fit there some items, your baby would touch them with his feet… So when you use Demi Grow as a double you basically don’t have a storage basket on a stroller at all. You can use the removable bin and carry it. But the whole point of having a storage bin is not to have to carry it right? In my opinion it’s a bummer that when you’re pushing Demi Grow with two kids you have to carry your things.
      I think Baby Jogger City Select LUX and UPPAbaby VISTA have better storage basket, fully useful even in a double version. Even when two seats are attached you can still fully load the basket. The access will be partially blocked (it’s a common issue on tandem strollers), but at least you don’t have to carry your diaper bag and other stuff.
      Therefore if the storage basket is important for you, I would recommend you these two strollers rather than Demi Grow (unless you’re okay with carrying your gear:)).
      Oh, and there’s one more thing. According to the pictures on the Nuna official website the basket is a bit different do the US and UK version!
      I hope I explained it clearly!:) Let me know if you have more questions and take care 🙂
