Graco Modes Pramette Travel System With SnugRide Infant Car Seat Review
The Graco modes pramette travel system with snugride infant car seat is one of the best values on the baby-stroller market. It’s ideal for parents on a tight budget who still want great features at their disposal.
It features a one-hand standing fold, large storage basket and is compatible with the SnugRide 35 Lite DLX infant car seat. Plus, it’s lightweight so it’s comfortable and effortless to move from place to place.
SnugRide has earned its name through safety, and this baby car seat lives up to that reputation. It has been rigorously crash-tested to guarantee your child is secure in frontal, side, rear and rollover crashes with energy-absorbing foam padding and an upfront adjustable 5-point harness providing extra protection during these traumatic incidents.
This Graco Modes travel system is a unique hybrid–it’s their first click connect stroller (which can convert into 10 different configurations) and reversible base that holds the SnugRide 35 lite DLX infant car seat. At only 16 pounds, it’s one of Graco’s lightest options but we’re thoroughly impressed with how well it handles.
Over the last few years, Graco has steadily improved their stroller line. In years past, their strollers were bulky and heavy; now they are lighter and better built than ever before.
For families on the go, Graco offers several new options in this category, such as the Aire4 XT 24.9 lb. with all-terrain rubber wheels and a one-touch brake. This stroller pairs with the SnugRide 35 stroller and costs $350.
Another option is the Graco FastAction DLX travel system, which pairs a SnugRide 35 infant car seat with an all-terrain stroller (22.7 lbs). This lightweight stroller has one-hand recline, stow-away adapters and front wheel suspension for added security.
The SnugRide 35 lite is a compact baby car seat designed to accommodate infants from 4 to 35 pounds and up to 32 inches tall. It has earned a stellar reputation for safety, comfort, and ease-of-use.
Its seat and base have been rigorously tested for safety in frontal, side, rear, and rollover accidents. Its EPS energy-absorbing foam helps safeguard your little one in these potentially life-threatening scenarios.
This Graco Modes baby car seat has some minor drawbacks, but is still an excellent value at this price point. According to manufacturer specifications, you should get around 7 years of use out of it according to manufacturer recommendations.
However, it may not be the ideal long-term car seat for your child since it lacks many additional features and isn’t particularly durable. Experts suggest replacing a seat at least once every seven years in order to prevent potential issues in the future.
This stroller boasts several convenient features for both parents and kids, such as a child tray with cup holder, parent cup holder, and large basket for all essentials. Despite its size and weight, it’s easy to maneuver and surprisingly quiet when in operation.
