GRACO Modes Stroller Travel System Review & GIVEAWAY)

Baby and children’s product manufacturer Graco

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

ever need.
First

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:
·        It took me about 5 minutes to take out all the parts in the box

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.

It’s

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.
And this year, we’re giving away our review edition to a deserving mom-to-be or new mom.
