September is Child Safety Month. There are very few places that we try to keep our kids more safe than in our cars. I remember when my oldest was born I spend WEEKS researching the perfect car seat and stroller for him. To this day I am very particular about what stroller and car seat that I will put my kids into.
I was recently offered the opportunity to try out the new Eddie Bauer 3-Wheeled Travel System.
Let me start by saying that this red color is even more amazing in person! I LOVE it!
One of the first things I noticed before I even opened up the box was that the the weight limit on the Car Seat was 35lbs! Now having three boys and three different Infant Car seats I have NEVER seen one that had a weight limit of 35lbs. That means that as long as your little one isn’t SUPER long you can keep him or her in this seat for quite some time. Even the chunkiest of babies will fit. I don’t know about you but having my kids in the Infant Carrier for as long as possible was a HUGE deal for me!
The stroller itself was very simple to put together. It took my husband all of 3 minutes to put it together. The look of the stroller is great. Its easy to open and even easier to close. It has a one handed fold and stand close which is one of my favorite features. I always hate it when you try and close a stroller and then have to struggle to keep it standing while to get the car door open.
There are several things that I love about this stroller. Not only does it have a snack tray and cup holder for the rider but it also has them for the parent. It folds up very compactly and easily, and the storage basket underneath is a great size. It will hold a child up to 50lbs and the streamlined front wheel really does make it easier to get the stroller over humps and bumps.
The few things that I have struggled with on this stroller are the straps. As you can see in the picture above it doesn’t seem to matter how tight I make them Colton still seems to find a way to sneak his arms out of them. He of course is still buckled in but his arms are loose. I can’t seem to figure out a good way to get him in and out. While I love the snack tray it is not easy to get it out of the way to get Colton into the stroller. And the only other thing is the locking latch when I close the stroller. Maybe its just me but when I close the stroller I want it to lock closed on its own. I have been having to lock it myself to be sure that it stays closed.
