When it comes to baby gear, there are certain products that are more important than others. At the top of my list is a high quality travel system. When it comes to making such an important purchase, there are many things we look at but one of the most important to me is the brand. Graco is a brand we have trusted since the birth of our first child in 2002 so we were pretty excited when the Graco SOHO Click Connect Travel System arrived on our doorstep a couple of weeks ago! We received the Presley pattern and we are over the moon excited about it.
One of the most notable things that I can tell you right off the bat is that the assembly is every mother's dream. When I opened the box, I almost did a cartwheel at the sight of a nearly assembled stroller. The car seat was completely assembled and ready to go and all I needed to do to complete the stroller was to add the wheels, fasten the basket on and add the front tray. SCORE!
I have had a lot of travel systems and one of the most frustrating things I have ran into is using the infant seat in the stroller. Most strollers require the use of an adapter to use the infant seat but not this one. I have never seen such an easy system to use. You don't even have to take the tray off of the front! All I did was recline the seat back and the car seat snapped right into the top of the stroller! When you are trying to get a baby into a stroller and you have other kids, especially toddlers who you are trying to keep track of, this is a lifesaver.
More notable features:
*Includes the Graco SnugRide Click Connect 35 Infant Car Seat
*Stroller weighs only 17.5 pounds
*Instant Motion offers a quick, one-hand compact fold
*3 position reclining seat
*Holds a child up to 50 pounds. To put that into perspective, my 4 year old weighs less than 40 pounds so this stroller is going to last you from infancy until well into toddlerhood.
*Single front-swivel wheels for enhanced maneuverability
*Extra large storage basket
*Parent's tray with storage and 2 cup holders
*Removable child's tray with 2 cup holders
*Convertible 3 or 5 point harness to grow with your child
This is definitely a must have for every new Mom! If you are expecting or have just had a baby, definitely put this bad boy on your gift registry because it is the cream of the crop in travel systems. I have had countless strollers in the 12 years since I first became a Mom and this is hands down one of the best travel systems that I have ever had.
Oh, and while we are here talking about this awesome stroller, let me also take a second to share some big news with our readers!
That's right! We just found out that we are expecting baby #5 sometime in May of 2015! So be sure and stick around because we will have a lot going on here in the next several months!
One lucky reader is going to receive their own SOHO Click Connect System from Graco!
