Chicco Bravo Trio Travel System Review

The Chicco Bravo Trio Travel System is one of the most popular budget-friendly travel systems on today’s market. For under $400 you get a great stroller with bunch of features and one of the safest car seats in the world. You really can’t beat that!

The Bravo Trio is designed for everyday use, but mostly on flat surfaces. The all-wheel suspension helps to smooth out the bumps. You will love the roomy seat with deep almost flat recline, adjustable handle bar with foam cover, huge basket that can fit all of your groceries, included parent organizer that is perfect for small items, and a large canopy with peekaboo window.

But the main feature that I like the most is how easy and compact it folds. And since it only weighs 23 lbs you can easily through it into your trunk.

The included Chicco KeyFit 30 is one of the best car seats on today’s market. My daughter absolutely loved it! It comes with a car seat adapter and one car seat base for the car. You can use the car seat on top of the main seat or the stroller, or you can remove the seat of the stroller and use only the frame. While it does come with a car seat adapter there is no bumper bar nor child’s tray included. I would definitely get a child’s tray too, because it’s super useful. Your child can put a sippy cup in it, toys, snacks or just use it to pull himself up.

Chicco Echo Umbrella Stroller Review

chicco-echo9The first time I saw Chicco Echo umbrella stroller I was at the park with my daughter Sophia and one of the moms had her son in it. My first impression was what a cool modern looking stroller! I absolutely loved the bright fresh color (it was turquoise) of the seat and the frame. I think that the combination of the black and color frame together with the black handle bars give it a very sleek and stylish look. Have you noticed that more and more companies have been doing color frames lately? I think it’s a new hot thing. Of course I had to come over, meet the mom and take a look at the stroller up close.

The Chicco Echo is a lightweight umbrella stroller that is very basic, but is very affordable. It retails for only $99 which makes it perfect for traveling. Let’s say you are going to visit your relatives in another state and you want something lightweight and compact that you can take with you on the plane and later on to the restaurant, shopping or park, but you don’t want to spend a lot of money, Chicco Echo would be a good choice. Also, if it gets damaged at the airport (which happens a lot when you check it in), you are not going to be too upset because you only spend $99.

Chicco Liteway Umbrella Stroller Review

chicco-liteway2The Chicco Liteway is one of the most popular umbrella strollers on today’s market.  It has been rated the best umbrella stroller by many website because of the combination of value and features. Many parents already have heavier bulkier strollers and want to buy something lighter, more compact, and inexpensive for short trips, running errands, and traveling.

The Chicco Liteway model is designed exactly for that. It has a roomy seat with deep one-hand recline that can accommodate a child from birth and up to 40 lbs. Typically, umbrella strollers are not designed for a newborn, but Liteway is very sturdy and has great back support so you can use from birth. Of course I would add a special padding for a newborn before putting a baby into the seat.

The maneuverability on Liteway is great. It rolls on four hard rubber wheels with rear suspension system and swivel front wheels. It’s designed for flat surfaces, but can handle some terrain if you lock the front wheels. It also has an easy compact 3D fold with an automatic lock for storage. This is not your over-the-shoulder type of umbrella stroller. It weighs 17 lbs and is designed more for transporting in the car rather than carrying around. It also features adjustable 5 point harness, adjustable leg rest, carry strap, medium size basket, and mediocre canopy.
