Great value, so simple, and perfect for travel and car use,
This review is from: Graco Mirage Plus Travel System (Black) (Baby Product)
We rarely drive anywhere but of course, as parents of a newborn we needed a car seat. We chose the Graco Junior because of economical and safety reasons: nice safe seat at a great price that would last us a long time (up to 27 lbs and we figured through our next baby, too). However, frustrated beyond imagination with our Bugaboo Cameleon's inability to easily transition from sidewalk to car to airplane to anything really besides a pram for street use (as in: I leave the house with it and walk on the street), we decided to forego the car seat alone and get the whole Mirage system, as it was on sale for almost 50% off the msrp and we thought it might be a good snap 'n go option to fold up, toss in the car, easily go from car to shops, collapse and check at the airport, etc.
I was not counting on anything fancy. I was counting on a reliable, decent looking, run of the mill snap 'n go push cart and a decent car seat that would function great for infrequent use. I could not have been more wrong! The Graco Mirage system is really great. This is coming from someone who purchased a Cameleon for aesthetic and functional purposes and a BOB for jogging. I never thought I would fall in love with this system! It's so lightweight, compact (fits nicely in the corner of our hallway in a tiny apartment in Helsinki), easy to assemble (did it myself in under 20 minutes), sturdy, easy to collapse (can do it in one motion), and feels very secure with the snap-on feature for the car seat. I'm afraid to admit that I actually like this stroller more than I like our Bugaboo. It's just so aesthetically nice to look at, smooth to push, and versatile (it should last up to 3 years and again: hopefully through another child). I have a strong suspicion that I'll be using this for a lot more than just travel. Thank you, Graco! I love this product and couldn't recommend it enough.
