Last year Graco introduced the new Click Connect system – it is an easy to use and innovative system. I was so excited to receive and review the new Modes Click Connect Travel system from Graco. The system features an infant carseat, the click connect base and the Modes stroller. I am so excited about so many features of this system, it has been hard not to take it out for a spin (you think the neighbors would think I am crazy?!).
Graco Modes Click Connect Travel System
There are two important pieces to this – so I will break them out and to let you know about each of them. First, the stroller – the modes stroller is a 3 in 1 stroller. It has a seat that can be placed on the frame forwards or backwards, the seat also reclines all the way back to create a baby bassinet. You can also place your car seat on the stroller frame facing front or back. So 3 in 1, but 10 riding positions! The hubby and I love the Modes stroller because we can face our baby. With adoption, (we are adopting internationally – to learn more about our story feel free to visit my blog at DelightCreativeHome.com) bonding is especially important. Being able to turn off some of the stimulation that can be in front of them with “normal” front facing strollers – AND interacting with them face to face as we walk to the park or through the grocery store should help us as we bond right as we get home. When we are ready to flip it and let our kiddo face the world (ha! Sounds dramatic!) – it is a simple flip to facing forward, and we are ready to go.
The carseat and base are made for children up to 35lbs. It snaps easily into the Modes stroller, and of course is crash tested and side impact tested and meets or exceeds U.S. safety standards. The LATCH equipped base is easy to install if you have the LATCH system in your car – just clip it in and tighten. You don’t have to worry about latching or unlatching belts in the back of the car.
The Modes Click Connect Travel System comes in two cute pattern options. You can find the Modes Click Connect Travel System at Babies R Us, or more details about the travel system at GracoBaby.com.
