Looks nice, but stroller is a nightmare.
August 28, 2020
The main problems I have with this set are: the car seat is not breathable and gets extremely hot. The stroller is bulky and hard to maneuver. It does not switch between the car seat and bassinet attachments that easily. It is not single-parent friendly.
The stroller is an absolute nightmare. First off, it's incredibly bulky. The stroller itself takes up almost the entire space in my Honda Fit's hatchback. It's easy to open up by yourself if you're willing to throw it around in the air a little bit, otherwise it's a bit of a pain, especially for a smaller person. When you're using it, the whole thing shakes like it's barely put together. As most people have mentioned, the front wheels ALWAYS go sideways and end up locking up, so whether you stop for a second and try to go again, or hit any small bump or crack in the sidewalk it happens and it's not as simple as just back tracking and going again, it takes a little effort to get the wheels back.
The car seat is comfortable and seems to be well protective, but it is not breathable at all. Even a quick trip to the store and back, my baby's back ends up soaked with sweat... so the occasional 2 hour road trip to visit my parents is always a tough time because of this (even with the AC on.) Because of this, we always try to bring the bassinet along with us if we plan to walk around with our baby, because it's more breathable, but then it takes up even more space in the car (good bye grocery room) and to switch between the car seat and bassinet requires the addition or removable of two attaching arms. Connecting and removing the car seat to the stroller is very troublesome and almost always requires two people for a smooth operation. If you're a single parent, I'm sorry if you're using this car seat and stroller.
Honestly at this price, I would expect so much more. I feel like they put all the effort in making it look nice and modern and forgot to make it functional.
