A Convenient Car-Seat And Stroller Fusion
As a parent, I have found that I can quickly become overwhelmed with the hordes of different products that you need as a parent of a baby. It seems that just as you have bought something, you have to go out to buy two more products.
To make your life just that much easier, why not purchase a product that ticks off two boxes simultaneously? For me, the Graco Aire3 Click Connect Travel System was just what I needed.

The travel system comes with both a stroller and a car seat, with the car seat able to be clipped onto the stroller. For the safety of your baby, the system utilises clicking sounds so that parents can easily hear if it was securely clipped in. The stroller is lightweight and foldable, making it portable and easy to pack into cars or storage. The three wheeled design makes it highly manoeuvrable and easy to guide. Additionally, its fitted suspension ensures a smooth ride for your child.
Three cup holders will hold drinks for you and your baby. Store small items in a zippered storage and larger items in the basket underneath the stroller. An extendable canopy provides the perfect amount of shade for your child while the multi-position reclining seat will provide a comfortable outing.
The ability of the car seat and a stroller to be combined. The Graco Aire3 Click Connect Travel System is also a very light stroller, making it easy to carry around and put in the trunk. The clicking function of the Aire3 ensures the safety of your child. For most connections and interlocking, the system produces a loud click. This way you will easily be able to tell if you have correctly secured your child.
We Don’t Like
While the multi-position recline is a decent idea, fully reclining the baby seat in the stroller backwards does cover the basket, meaning you must shift the chair to get to the basket underneath. While it isn’t the most expensive of its kind enough, it is still quite costly to buy. However, it does have a good value for money.
Children learn to smile from their parents.
