I bought the Graco Travel system because as I was shopping for strollers and we were playing around with the Graco, a mother actually stopped and told us that they were VERY happy with their Graco stroller. She proceeded to tell us how to use it, all the tips and tricks, all the neat storage. After we talked to her and testing all the other strollers in the store, we decided to buy the Graco. After all, a recommendation from an experienced mother is definitely better than my 35 minutes of store testing!

The assembly took me about 25 minutes. It wasn't too hard. I did have trouble attaching this silver thin metal to connect a certain part in the stroller as it was tight so I had to ask my husband to help me. But otherwise, I dont think the assembly was complicated at all.
This stroller is a travel system - it comes with the stroller and a car seat. Basically you attach the car seat base to your car and the car seat attaches to the base. Then if you want to stroll around with your little one, you remove the car seat and it sits on top of the stroller. Everything is very simple. To attach car seat to the base it just snaps right in. To remove it from the base you just have to press the button behind it with one hand and grasp the handle with the other to lift it out. My baby weighs 8 lbs. My husband usually carries the car seat with him in it as I am still recovering. However I did carry the car seat with him in it a couple of times and I was able to handle it.
The stroller is also a little heavy. However, I am fine with that as the construction is sturdy and I know that it won't get damaged easily or that it is flimsy. This stroller is so handy, easy to handle and has wonderful storage. To close the stroller for storage all you have to do is twist the front handle forward (the long bar that you grip to push the stroller) and the stroller easily folds. The stroller also has two modes one where the front wheels go straight or the front wheels can go round and round for more maneuverbility. The first mode is more if you are pushing the stroller one direction while the second mode is if tiy arent in paved streets and/or you will be turning eft and right many times. You can access these modes by the front wheels where you lift up the tab by the wheels to access 2nd mode.
This stroller also has several storage compartments. There is the bottom basket, two drink holders, a storage compartment in between the drinks (you can put in little goodies for yourself or your cellphone) and a sunglass storage. Unfortunately if you have one of those humongous celebrity sunglasses its not going to fit there. So I basically use the sunglass storage for something else. The stroller also has a food tray for the little baby.
