sent Bellyitch to review one of its newest stroller systems, the Modes Click Connect 3 in 1 Stroller Travel System (valued $482) which can
accommodate a newborn to a toddler. It’s versatile, grows with baby and literally can be the only stroller you’d
off, we start off with a pretty good base product. Over 12 years ago, I got my first Graco infant car seat and it was
wonderfully constructed, safe and durable and lasted me through several years. It truly is the industry standard
for those seats. It appears Graco has improved upon older models and taken the best part of stroller systems to come up with this latest product. Here is my review:
the stroller shipped in and within 15 minutes I had assembled all the parts
myself with no tools whatsoever. It was super easy! Most of the parts snapped in easily and the instructions
were quite intuitive.· From the hospital, a baby will spend most of its time inside the
infant seat. No need to disturb baby when you are going from car to the mall.
Simply snap the stroller into the buggy part of the stroller and go. If it will
be used as a buggy for a brisk walk out in the neighborhood, simply lay baby inside
the carriage part and you’re off. As baby grows out of the infant seat, the
back part easily adjusts and can be used as a toddler and pre-schooler
stroller. The back reclines for those moments when a small kid falls asleep. No
more toppling over or neck strains as with traditional umbrella strollers.·
The stroller easily collapsed with a pull of a lever in the back
and quickly snaps into place with one hand. It can be removed and added into
the trunk with one arm. This is important for when out alone with baby and not spare hands to help you out. The front wheels easily swivel for taking tight corners which is good for maneuvering around crowded and cramped areas.
· The canopy was made of pretty durable material, not flimsy at all so it looks like it could withstand the test of time. I liked the fact
that my sample was a dark navy because it made it unisex and can be used or
gifted to a mom expecting a baby or either gender.
The height is perfect for me who is just 5 foot 3 and my husband
who is 6 foot 3 to push and not have his shins hit up on the base.
The boot is very spacious and ample. I was able to stuff into it an
entire diaper bag, a spare blanket, a jacket and had room to spare.
The wheels were sufficient though they could’ve been a bit more
rugged so to withstand the test of time or being pushed through dirt, gravel, sidewalks
with cracks in them and other gritty terrain, occasionally.
a perfect gift for a soon to be or brand new mom because it would be all they’d
need for baby for a very long time.
