“A Must Have!”
The reviews for the Graco SnugRider Infant Car Seat Frame are phenomenal! User after user declares this infant stroller one of the “best baby purchases” a parent can make! This is a “must have” baby product, and one that parents with new babies shouldn’t live without.
Users simply “love” this infant baby stroller and say it is super convenient and much easier to use than conventional travel systems. The stroller frame is extremely lightweight (12 lbs), is easy to maneuver, and, although it doesn’t look like it, it is very durable.
Many reviewers say they have used this product for more than one child and it is still holding up great. Users say it only takes seconds to fold and unfold the stroller frame, and the stroller is not at all bulky—it takes up little room in your car trunk and fits easily between clothing racks and down aisles in the store.
The stroller handles are adjustable and the stroller basket is huge. You will have no problem fitting a large diaper bag in the basket. And, to top it all off, the basket is very accessible, even with the infant car seat attached.
Many parents say the Graco SnugRider Infant Car Seat Frame is so much better than a regular stroller and is a must have for parents who are often on the go.
Users love that they don’t have to wake up or disturb their baby when moving baby between the car, the stroller, home or the store and think this is the most convenient way to travel with a young baby.
And, at such an affordable price, you can hardly go wrong. “It makes being mobile with baby so easy”!
Graco Snugrider Elite Review:- Cons
There are almost no negatives at all for this stroller. With over 1000 online reviews for this product, I could only find a handful of people who rated this stroller frame poorly.
And these users aren’t even really complaining about the stroller all that much. Some of the users say that the stroller becomes hard to push and maneuver as the baby gets heavier—over 20 lbs.
But this is ok because this is getting close to the time when you will retire most infant car seats, and therefore this stroller frame, and instead switch over to a convertible car seat and a regular stroller or a lightweight stroller.
Another complaint about the stroller is that it has no shocks and you really feel every bump on the road and every crack in the sidewalk. Some city users say that because of this, the SnugRider is not the best option for everyday use.
My Two Cents
I actually have to agree with this final critique. This is not the stroller for city-dwellers who tend to walk from place to place.
The Graco SnugRider Infant Car Seat Frame Stroller is best suited for suburban and country dwelling parents who need to use their car on a daily basis to go, well, everywhere.
This is an invention for those who need to drive around with their baby strapped into the car seat a lot. It’s a fantastic solution for these parents because you can move your baby from the car, to the stroller frame, to wherever without waking or disturbing baby and it is a much simpler, lighter and more convenient option than traditional bulky travel systems.
It also gives parents time to think about their lifestyle with their baby and then only after the first 9 months to a year of use with the SnugRider, purchase a regular stroller that will fit the needs of their growing baby and the lifestyle of the parents.
If your lifestyle involves daily use with your car, then the Graco SnugRider is definitely a stroller option for you!
