UPPAbaby Cruz/Vista Stroller Accessories Overview

So, you’re the proud owner of an UPPAbaby stroller! You’re probably excited to travel with a stroller that has high-quality safety features and has the convenience you need in your life as a parent. To make things even easier on moms and dads everywhere, UPPAbaby has a variety of accessories for each line of stroller.  Organizers, rain covers, and even cupholders are all available to outfit an UPPAbaby stroller to meet the demands of any situation that parenting throws at you. Let’s take a look at the essentials, and then some. 

Parent Organizer

UPPAbaby actually has two Parent Organizers:  the “Parent Organizer” and the “Parent Organizer II.” Both Parent Organizers make a great accessory.  The Organizer lets parents place everything they need right in front of them. That means no more fumbling around in a purse, backpack, or the undercarriage basket. When you need to make a quick phone call, take a sip of water, or grab your keys to lock or unlock your door, it’s right there in front of you.

The Parent Organizer is a polyester bar that sits across the handlebars of the stroller, while the Parent Organizer II is a polyester pouch that hangs from the parent handlebar for easy reach.

Seat Liner

The UPPAbaby Seat Liner is a great way to protect the seat of your stroller, because we all know that spills and stains will happen. It’s also breathable to help with ventilation, keeping your baby cool on warm, sunny days. It’s easy to remove and wash by hand, and you won’t regret adding an extra layer of protection for your child and your stroller.

SnugSeat Infant Insert

If your child isn’t quite big enough to ride in a stroller, but you need the maneuverability of using a Vista or Cruz without the bassinet or Mesa Car Seat, the SnugSeat Infant Insert is a reliable product to help you out. The design and comfort of the insert helps keeps your baby’s neck and back stable when strolling, but also keeps them snug and warm. It’s perfect for children from birth to 21 pounds.


It’s important to not let a chilly winter get in the way of you taking your baby out for errands. Especially since you’re probably a busy parent and need to have your child in tow. That’s why the UPPAbaby Cozy Ganoosh is there to keep your child warm and snug. It’s suitable for as low as 20 degrees and has a hood that can go over your baby’s head or stay rolled back for those brisk, but not too cold days.

Like the Parent Organizer, UPPAbaby has three types of Ganoosh.  The CozyGanoosh, the Ganoosh and the BabyGanoosh. The main difference between these three styles is the strollers that they fit for. The Ganoosh fits the Vista, Cruz, G-Link, and G-Luxe. The BabyGanoosh fits only the Vista and Cruz strollers, while the CozyGanoosh fits all UPPAbaby strollers.


Piggyback Ride-Along Board

When your oldest outgrows the stroller and you still have a little one in the seat, it’s still possible to include the older child in the stroller fun.  The Piggyback Ride-Along Board is an optional accessory for both the Vista and Cruz.  The Ride-Along Board snaps on to the back legs of the stroller and allows your child to stand and hold onto the stroller while you push.  When not in use, the Ride-Along Board lifts up and out of the way. It’s also a good way to use the Cruz for two children and the Vista for three children.

Due to model changes, we carry Ride-Along Boards compatible with stroller model years 2015 and greater and model years 2014 and earlier.

Snack Tray

A great addition to your array of UPPAbaby accessories as your child grows up is the UPPAbaby Snack Tray, compatible with both the Vista and the Cruz. The depth of the tray keeps the food in the tray, even during bumpy rides or sudden stops. Never take it off, as the stroller still folds with the snack tray attached!

Due to model changes, we carry Snack Trays compatible with stroller model years 2015 and later and model years 2014 and earlier. 

Infant Car Seat Adapters

To take your baby in the stroller with the car seat, you need the UPPAbaby infant car seat adapters. There are four adapters available and which one you need depends on the car seat that you have. The great thing about UPPAbaby’s adapters is that they fit cross-brand infant car seats. You can outfit your stroller to be compatible with Maxi Cosi, Nuna, Cybex, Chicco, and Graco brand car seats. 

The following accessories are available for the UPPAbaby Vista only:


The 2018 UPPAbaby Vista Rumbleseat is compatible with the UPPAbaby Vista Stroller model 2015 and newer. It can be used with the Toddler Seat, Bassinet, or Infant Car Seat to convert the stroller into a double stroller with an added Piggyback Board for three children to ride. It’s suitable for children aged 3 months to 35 pounds and can be configured forward-facing or backward-facing.

Lower/Upper Adapters

The Upper and Lower Adapters help to convert your Vista into a double! Read carefully to determine if/when you need each type of adapter.

The Upper Adapters are required every time you want to convert your Vista into a double stroller. These adapters raise the height of the Toddler Seat, Infant Car Seat, or Bassinet attached to the Upper Position of the Vista stroller and help to make room for a double.

The Lower Adapters are required if you are converting your Vista into a double stroller and intend to place an infant car seat or the bassinet in the lower position. If you intend to use the Rumbleseat in the lower position, you do not need to purchase the Lower Adapters. The adapters to attach the Rumbleseat in the lower position of the Vista are included with the purchase of the Rumbleseat. 

Rain Shield

You don’t like to let rainy days stop you, which is why the UPPAbaby Rumbleseat Raincover is perfect for parents with a rain-or-shine mentality. You can also be prepared in case the rain happens to catch you off guard. It’s custom-fit for the 2015 and later Rumbleseat models.
