fantastic all in one box. Like a travel starter pack for new parents!
My father bought this for me as a baby shower gift. As a first time mom I'd done a ton of research before deciding this was the stroller/car seat combo I wanted. Straight out of the box it took maybe fifteen minutes TOPS for my husband to assemble. Both the stroller and car seat are incredibly light weight (especially compared to other brands). The fast action fold is a blessing (especially when we're in a hurry) combine that with how lightweight it is, and I can get it folded and into the trunk of my car in a flash, one handed! I read others saying it's bulky/heavy/inconvenient, and this was just not the case for me. After nine months of use, I still more than love this unit. My son is completely comfortable in either the car seat or the stroller. (in fact when we first brought him home, the only place we could get him to sleep was the car seat go figure!) The only trouble I've had with the stroller at all is with the brakes on the rear wheels sticking. I have to double check whether they're engaged or not but this is on very rare occasions. I HIGHLY recommend this travel system, in fact I gush about it in baby stores when I see people considering it. I truly love it, and am considering getting the double version now that baby number two is on the way.
Simple and Easy!
I purchased this for my baby who is not yet born. That said, with any later complications I may update this review. What I can say now though is that the shipping was fast and it arrived in great condition. The stroller needs minor assembly that requires no tools and is very simple to do. The design is very nice and will look great for either a girl or boy (we want to have other children in the future so this was important to us). I like that the car seat base has a space to insert the manual so that if I have questions later on about how to adjust something it will always be available. As I said, once baby is here I will update so you know how it goes with a little one!
EDIT: My husband recently installed the car seat in our car and found it really simple but did complain that the instructions in the booklet were hard to follow. After watching a video for installation that was posted by Graco it was much clearer.
EDIT: Now that we have been using this travel system for a few months (my baby girl is 3.5 months old) I can say easily that this set is really easy to use and very convenient. First, adjusting the straps on this system is very simple and quick (follow the instructions, I don't want to confuse you). The stroller portion fits easily in my Toyota Camry trunk (and in several other vehicles I'm sure). The base is easier to install/remove with practice and the car seat goes into it easily, but I recommend always double checking it is attached properly by pressing down on the seat 'one last time' before closing baby's car door. Overall, I feel this system still deserves the 5 star rating!
This is a great travel system at a good value
This is a great travel system at a good value. I have had ours for over a year now (my baby recently grew out of it). Even though this seat isn't as well padded as some, we took a few 14 hour and up car trips with it and baby seemed to do well. The car seat also has a higher weight and height limit than most, making it PERFECT for our tall daughter. The stroller is great as well, no complaints here! And, of course, the convenience of the click-connect system is a huge plus. We thoroughly enjoyed this carseat. (And we are still using the stroller, since it accommodates a larger child.)
Sturdy and functional. Love the one pull fold up for the stroller. Ordered an extra base for use with the car seat for another vehicle.
For baby number 2 we did a lot of research and spent time looking into all the different options. The stroller is very easy to maneuver in crowds. My husband likes how easy it folds and unfolds. It is also grandparent proof as far as folding and unfolding.
Absolutely love this set! Simple to assemble and even more simple when on the go. Absolutely love this system and would recommend anyone to buy this if you want simple, fast, and convenience. What a difference in strollers from when my son was born in 2003 to now. This is a great product overall!
More Beautiful in person!
What I thought was brown/pink turned out to be more of a grayish and pink, which was more beautiful. The stroller is super lightweight and the 1 fold click strap is awesome!. The car seat locks when you place it in the stroller and the stroller has 2 additional straps that secure the car seat. The basket is pretty big and at an angle so it makes it easier to grab your items. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase.
My friend was/is happy w/ the travel system. It wasn't for me, it was a gift. Great product! Great experience at onlineshopdealer.com.
Love this stroller
I have a 2 month old and love this stroller/carseat. It's so easy to take her out of the car and not have to unbuckle her when we're out running errands. The stroller is easy to fold up, but can be difficult to unfold. When I pull the strap, I have to also reach down and pull the wheels apart, which can be hard with my size. Other than that, we love this stroller. It's very smooth, even on gravel.
Great product for the price. Looking good, easy to use. Besides using it as stroller, we use it at home as a temp nap bed for the baby as well. It's convenient that you can move it around.
