Much better than that I would say.

Bought one for my brother at £110 delivered which was the cheapest at the time a few weeks back.

I wouldn't say low quality. Personally I would say adequate perhaps low budget but definitely not low quality. the really important bit the Baby Junior stage 0 car seat is the same one that is used across much of the Graco travel system range, it has a lot of removable pads and wedges that give you more room to keep the baby in the seat for longer, especially if you have a larger baby.

There is a second set of loops on the seatbelt straps so once there isn't a lot of play left you can switch over to them to make sure the belt isn't pulling down on baby's shoulders.

We have the same car seat, it's done 2 children and possibly a 3rd next year

If you get this then pick up one of these they're sometimes on offer for £20-30

Makes it a total doddle to get the car seat in, put baby in car seat whilst in the warm indoors, go to car, drop car seat into base press until it clicks and it's fitted, no seat belts to faff about with, no way of scewing up fitting the belt each time just job done, worth every penny

Got the stroller from Smyths in December for £80 (already had a compatable car seat and base, but lost the original stroller when it was bent in a car accident).

Rich44 has summed it up perfectly!

This isn't as good as the original we had, but does the job - just have to be careful with how you hold it to fold it, otherwise the tray smashes against the ground as it collapses under you.

great price

I bought a Graco for my first child, and I have to say was really robust and much better than the more expensive makes I have had since. My mm still uses it for when my little ones go over not bad going for 7 1/2 years old

We have, and still use, with my 2nd child, the Graco Quattro Tour Sports system which, ok its not the same, but the quality is fab!

The graco carseat and base was used with my 1st til she was 18 months, and my son is now in it at 16 months old - I am not sure if its the same carseat as in the system above, but it is great and has won several mum and baby awards.

Our system is big and heavy, which is no problem for us with a car, and we dont use public transport. I have heard that most of the graco systems are also big and heavy.

Using a base which stays in the car for the carseat is the best invention ever with a young child - there is no need to wrap carseat belts around the carseat everytime. Just put the carseat ontop of the base and it locks in itself.

no problem Play Pennies, hope it helps people on a tight budget :-)

Thats a great price mine was £300.love graco travel systems

Hi guys,

I don't know much about this... yet. Do you know if this can be used from a baby (from birth)?

Would we need something else? ie, I've seen sometimes another kind-of-basket that goes horizontally, but I don't know the name... would we need to buy that separately?

Cheers!!!

Using the Mirage stroller with a Gracco car seat / base for our newborn - so yes.

Are you thinking of the little cot type thing (can't remember the proper name)? We had one of them with the original system, but rarely used it as it was a hassle to get a sleeping baby in and out of and into car seats etc.



This is from birth you dont need a carry cot or bassinet for this travel system.
Personally I'm not too keen on graco but heat all the same.
Had a graco double it was big and heavy, bits fell off of it the rain cover tore in lots of places, I was unable to lock the wheels as the front locking mecanism had fell off, the bar at the front fell out of the socket, it was brought from new and only had little use too on saying that I'm comparing it to my other pushchairs all of which have cost a lot more (silvercross sleepover deluxe, phil and teds, icandy)and that was 300 with a car seat which I'm now using for the second time with my 3rd child. So I guess I can't complain, great if your on a tight budget though.

Just bought one... 5% quidco too!

bought in a hurry... Missed Quidco

Thanks for that name, carrycot!

I can't research much until later tonight, at work at the moment... but, does a new-born-baby fit? in the normal pushchair? would it be possible to put him/her in horizontal position here? and would it be possible to turn the seat so that the baby faces you?

Sorry for this beginner's questions, but we didn't know this systems were sooo complex!

The pushchair seat lies flat. So suitable from birth. With the car seat in place the baby faces you.

I have exactly the same questions!

So I decided to buy it and find out... if its not suitable I will return it

Thank you very much, bebo83!!! Got it now...

Not sure what my wife will think about taking the new family member in the car seat so that she could see him? :), I'll ask her later... cheers!!

This is a great deal for those on a budget!

Gracos one handed fold system is amazing, if you drive then i would also agree the car seat base is a must. I used to put my seat covers in washing machine which was a godsend!
Also the basket - you can actually put stuff in it! The higher end models Bugaboo, Stokke, Quinny - All have useless baskets!

ETA - As a long term measure i wouldn't use in travel system mode - It's not great for babies back to be in car seats for long periods of time. Ok for school runs and a nip in the shop IMO. Lie flat is best for babies it's just a shame this faces away from you

If the the car seat part of this is the Graco Logico S HP, then that model was a Which best buy, scoring 5* on all the safety tests.

That is the seat thats with my Quattro Tour Sports system, it won mum and baby awards too, but it is not the seat that is with this system -think its the graco junior baby which for the seat itself is around £60

Its showing Out of stock now....

My daughter had bought a Graco system, 2 months out of warranty & the front wheels started to play up, I contacted Graco (hoping they would help her out) they wanted us to pay for repairs, the buggy was used 3/4 times per week on flat surfaces. She had spent about £150 on the system...poor VFM! She never took up the option of a repair but instead bought a cheaper brand & has since stated the new buggy is far superior in quality! We live & learn I suppose.

out of stock ... or just expired?
