    This product is awesome. Light weight and easy to story. This carriage fully reclines which is awesome for any baby. The wheels are big so the baby is not bouncing around on ruff surfaces. Buying a cheep carriage is so not worth it, spend the money for the comfort of your baby. The only thing I dislike is the hood on this carriage does not full entend but I guess that is why it is indicated for a 6 month and older. I love it and would recommend to anyone.

    I love this stroller sooooooo much! It is so lightweight and my one year old is so comfortable in it. I can fit everything I need in the basket and it is just perfect. I especially love the Adventure pattern!

    I have a 4 1/2 old baby and I bought this stroller because we needed to travel, its super comfortable, reclines perfectly for the baby, light weight and easy to fold and open. Would ALWAYS recommend it.

    After several weeks of researching strollers, I finally decided on this one and I love it. I already have a larger stroller from my travel system as well as a chicco umbrella stroller, which neither of my kids ever liked. That’s mainly why I went stroller shopping in the first place. I needed something a bit more advanced than that. This stroller is for my second child, 9 months old. We travel quite often on the weekends and even with quick trips around town, I need something easier to handle and that would fit in the trunk of my car and still leave room for luggage or groceries, etc. I debated between this and the Maclauren. I chose this one mainly because of the tray on the front. I love the way it folds up although it is a bit difficult to do with one hand. But I really wanted the tray. I used the travel system stoller constantly with my first child and couldn’t have made it without the tray to hold sippy cups and snacks. I knew I’d want the same for my son. I love how it folds much smaller than the larger strollers that just fold flat and take up your entire trunk! I highly reccomend this stroller to anyone looking for something lightweight, easy to use, and still comfortable for your child. My son has taken several naps in this one and I love the fact that I can raise the front so his feet aren’t dangling as well as recline him back. One downside is the canopy. It’s a bit of a waste to me as it doesn’t even begin to block the sun. Otherwise, great buy. Also, it comes with a parent cup holder that can be attached. That has come in quite handy. Basket underneath is just enough for a baby bag or whatever few essentials you might have.

    I just got this stroller for my daughter and I love it. I have the Peg Perego aurora and it is harder to open and close. This stroller is so easy to use and my daughter fits in it great. I deffinately recomend this stroller to anyone 🙂

  6. mom on the move on December 10th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    this is a great stroller, it is very similar to the peg perego, however it is less expensive. would highly recommend to any mother. It does fold down easily but is very long. Easier to put in larger car trunk than smaller car trunk. Over all it is still a great buy

  7. Mom who never stops on January 14th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This is my 2year olds 3rd stroller. I am sorry that I keep wasting money on bad products. I went against my better instincts to spend the extra buck. The basket size is the only thing positive. The front tray is always popping out, the wheels need a desperate alignment, and the fabric is filthy. The worst part is that it doesn’t come apart to throw in the washing machine. It is a pain to close, because sometimes it takes a few times to get it right. And it’s less than 6months old! I am going to blame the fact that I was tired when I bought it.

  8. Foster Aunt on January 15th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I have had this stroller since July 2007 when we got my 12 month old niece. The stoller only stears well on the even terran of the mall – forget taking a walk in the neiborhood with it(even on sidewalks). Don’t expect to get a small diaper bag in the storage basket under the seat as it will barely fit. Hope that nothing spills on it because it is a nightmare to clean and ours ultimitly mildewed in some places because it can’t be taken apart and cleaned. Not that the material is condusive to cleaning.
    The straps are too short and uncomfortable for the child. Keep in mind the baby I have was 16 pounds at a year and still didn’t fit well in the straps. Now that she is taller, its almost impossible. My advise is don’t buy online when it comes to strollers and take your baby with you, let them ride around the store in it for a while and see what life will be like with your choice. Afterall this will be your best friend until they are 4.

    I got this stroller for my new baby since I really wanted a compact stroller that was still able to use an infant carseat. I love the Chicco carseat, so it made sense to get the matching stroller.

    This stroller folds up like an umbrella stroller. It doesnt fold as compactly as one, but considering the extra features and durability of the stroller, it didnt surprise me. Its still very compact though-however, its LONG. It takes up the whole length of my subaru’s trunk.

    I havent used this with a carseat yet, just my 2.5 year old daughter. I dont think the straps will work for too much longer but for now they do, almost fully let out. She seems to love the stroller though and asks for it, rather than her other, full size stroller.

    The basket underneath is small, but it works. I just hang my diaper bag off the handles. The cupholder works well too, for something small. I really love the pocket in the back-its very handy for my keys, cell phone, etc. It also opens and folds easily.

    As for stearing, I havent had any issues at all. I walk a mile to pick up my son from school each day and we go over a lot of uneven terrain with no problems. It also reclines very easily without annoying a sleeping toddler.

    My only major complaint is that the seat cover does NOT remove for washing. Whoever thought that was a good idea must not have kids. Since I’m using this primarily with an infant carseat soon, it shouldnt be a huge deal, but with a baby/toddler in it….ahhh. I took my daughters old carseat cover thingie and took off the top part, leaving the bottom part on the stroller. It’s kept it clean-but I wouldnt risk letting her have food while in the stroller. They made a big mistake when they made the cover non-removable. Other than that I love the stroller and would’ve given it 5 stars!!

    I traded in my bulky Laura Ashley travel system for this. I wish I had bought this product when my little girl was first born. I love this mid-sized stroller. We have taken it on trips, etc and it is great for when you don’t want to take an ultra thin umbrella stroller, but also don’t want to take a big, bulky travel system. I LOVE the deep seat..which was why I bought it. My other stroller was so narrow that my child kept slipping under the tray table if she wasn’t strapped in. I had to return the first one, though, because the back legs were bent. The only cons to this stroller are the extra small straps to strap in my 2 year old. They are a little tight on her, and she isn’t a big child. They don’t let out in the leg area so they are too tight around her legs. Also, the basket is small, but it is better than a regular umbrella stroller where you have NO storage at all. For what we use it for, it is great. Because of the too small straps, I am only giving it four stars. Overall, I am very happy with this product.

  11. Mom of three on March 4th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I was at first attracted to the bright pattern and the front tray which is difficult to find in a lightweight stroller. I was looking for a stroller (probably about the 8th one I have bought since my first baby was born) that would fold compactly into the back of my SUV since the back storage space is so small. After using it a few times around the house we quickly returned because it had two major flaws.
    1. The canopy was not sufficient to block the sun from a reclining child.
    2. The bottom strap that comes up between the baby’s legs is extremely short. My son is a pretty hefty 4 month old, and I had a already had a difficult time strapping him in. I couldn’t imagine how it would fit him in a year or so.
    Besides those two flaws, it seemed like an okay stroller. Folded up easily and compactly, had a nice tray and cup holder, and looked nice.

  12. Vinnie's Parents on June 12th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    this stroller is great. We haven’t been able to use it too much, but for what we have done it’s been great. We have the KeyFit 30 car seat, which snaps securely into the stroller. It is very light and easy to maneuver. We have small cars with small trunks, and this stroller fits nice in the trunk with room for other things (unlike the full size strollers). The only issue we have found is the wheel treads make the ride a little bumpy, but it was almost like the vibrations of his bouncy seat, so he doesn’t seem to mind. It was basically completely assembled in the box, so we were able to use it right away. Can’t give a 5-star rating because we haven’t had to fully utilize it to see if there are any issues (as some other reviewers have pointed out). Oh yeah, the storage underneath is basically useless if you are using the car seat, but all strollers like this have that problem.

  13. NC Mom on June 27th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We love this stroller. It’s very easy to use on all kinds of surfaces and our infant is very happy in it. We use it with the Chicco car seat as a travel system (the others were too big for our car) and it’s working out very well. It’s light enough for me to pick up myself, and easy to fold/unfold once you know how. The one problem we’ve had is that the foam on the handles is already coming off, and we’ve only used it a handful of times. Other than that, we’re thrilled.

  14. New Mom on July 3rd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller-it folds compactly and it was the perfect travel system with the car seat. I spent a lot of time in looking for the right item, as I am not familiar with baby products. I had this recommended by several friends and I would recommend it to anyone that is researching. Great product!

  15. Stace on July 7th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I was looking for an umbrella stroller with a tray for my 8 month old and came across this. I already had the Chicco Ct.05 umbrella stroller and love it. This is a step-up from the umbrella stroller and it’s great. For the other reviewers and those looking, if you think of this as a fancy umbrella stroller, you will not be let down.

  16. 1st time mommy on July 23rd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Okay-I have had 2 of these strollers and they both have had the same defects.
    1. The seams that hold the forms for the sunshade pop open and the form comes out. The second one hit my child in the head.
    2. The wheels suck. They aren’t alligned and it’s hard to move backward with them.

    I have the Cortina travel system which I love so it was only natural for me to purchase this, however I have been more than disappointed. I am going to buy the Maclaren.

  17. AggieMom on August 12th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Overall, this is a great stroller. I love the compact fold and that it is lightweight. My 3 month old loves riding around in this stroller. The seat reclines almost flat and has a snack/drink tray for the child (hard to find in an umbrella fold stroller). I have found 2 draw backs – the basket is small and hard to get in to (I don’t really see a way around this with an umbrella type stroller, so Chicco did the best they could) and the ride is a little bumpy because of the tread on the wheels (but my daughter doesn’t seem to mind). Overall – a great stroller as long as you don’t need a huge storage space. Yet another great Chicco product!

  18. OutandaboutMom on August 22nd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller in Feb 08, right after my son’s 1st birthday. Overall I have been very satisfied with it. It is not a lightweight stroller though due to its weight and size but it is by far lighter than my big Graco stroller I used to have. I like the fact that it has a tray and two cup holder plus the little bag right under the canopy to put keys or smaller items in. The stroller is not that easy to push which is a little disappointing. I am not able to push it with just one hand b/c the front wheels tend to lock up. I also hit the back wheels with my shoes in the beginning and had to adjust my stride to avoid the wheels. I find the basket of satisfactory size. When I still used a larger diaper bag, I was able to hang it over the handles and the smaller one I use now fits in the basket. The problem with the stroller I just encountered was a white plastic wire that came through the fabric on the side of the seat. I contacted Chicco and they will replace the stroller. Their customer service is great. Even though I have enjoyed the Trevi stroller and would recommend it to anyone, I will now look for something a little smaller. My son does not want to sit in the stroller all the time, he wants to walk and getting him in and out of a smaller stroller will be much easier.

  19. New mom on October 19th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This is the first stroller I have ever purchased/used. I started using this stroller as part of a travel system when my daughter was a newborn. My child is now 10 months and this stroller still fits my needs. Not too heavy and maneuvers well.

  20. Bham Mom on January 8th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller! It is so easy to fold for storage and unfold for use – it doesn’t take very long when you are taking up two parking spaces trying to get your kiddie ready to ride! It is fairly lightweight – which won’t seem like near as much weight after carrying around a baby in their carseat for a little while. The chicco carseats snap into this stroller with the back laid down flat, so it can be used as a “travel system”. Awesome, very happy with it

  21. Tatortots mommy on March 13th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller! I use it everywhere I go!!! It’s easy to use, steers easily and has so many recline options….not to mention easy to open and close!! Love it!!

  22. Very needy Mom on April 10th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I really enjoy this stroller. I choose to sell my very nice Graco and get this one. I needed something my compact. This one will fit in the backseat of my F150. I love the fact that it is so compact. The fabric is very nice. It’s not removable so don’t forget to spray some scotchgaurd on it. The straps are very easy to use. They can be seperated to be used as just a seat strap. The footrest is so cool. You can position it at any point. Push it up all the way for younger babies. My daughter is one and I position it strait out. She doesn’t like her feet to hang. The seat back is ajustable and can lay all the way back. The wheels are nice and big so you don’t feel like they will break while “off roading”. The seat space is nice and big. My daughter love how big it is. She felt so inclosed in the Graco. The tray is completely removeable. It has a slanted snack tray so my little one doesn’t have trouble “finding” the snacks. The hight of the stroller is perfect for me and my husband. You don’t feel like you leaning over to reach it. When I went search for a compact stroller I knew it would lack in at least a couple of areas. The basket isn’t very big. Two small bags is as much as you are going to get in it. The stroller has one cupholder on the side and a pocket in the back for mom. Overall I really like the stroller. I actually got one and it had a problem locking. When I called the company they quickly replace the stroller with a brand new one. The stroller had a one year warranty on it so that was a great surprise.

  23. buckeyetay on April 21st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This is my favorite stroller by far. We have three children and have been through many strollers and this stroller is the best one yet! The handles are long enough for my husband to push without hunching over too much. The stroller rides really smooth and it is easy to load in your car. Very light weight. Excellent stroller!!! The Chicco car seat also fits with this stroller. Love it!

  24. CK mom of 3 on April 23rd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This is an amazing stroller especially for the price. It looks great & is very functional with super high quality parts and materails. I use it almost every day and have it in and out of the car multiple times a day. It is a shame that it is not available in the store. It folds easily & compactly without having to remove the tray. It is super sturdy & light weight. I checked out some of the other top brands & they were not as well-made. I have used Chicco products in the past & I was not disappointed. The only reason I did not give 5 starts is that the canopy does not extend as far as I would like. I plan on attaching an extra UV shade for the summer.

  25. Mom of one on May 27th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We bought the Trevi to use as a travel system with the Chicco Keyfit 30. For that–I loved it. Once my daughter outgrew her infant seat and we used the actual stroller, I discovered all sorts of things I don’t like.

    The canopy is so small that it doesn’t shield my baby from the sun, wind or rain. Completely useless. All of the parts that snap together so easily when assembling the stroller, also pop off randomly when in use. The shade constantly pops off, the tray comes off for no reason as well.

    Like another review commented, the form in the canopy broke through the seam and pokes out right where my daughter’s head is. We ended up taking the whole thing out.

    The wheels squeak and are misaligned.

    I could go on. I’m disappointed because I did a lot of research before I purchased this stroller and it definitely didn’t live up to the hype.

  26. First time mom on June 5th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I registered for this while expecting my first, and received it at my baby shower. I was flabbergasted by how heavy it was!! It is described as a “lightweight travel stroller”, yet it would barely fit into the trunk of our Kia Optima, and once there, we couldn’t load much else. It weighs 19 lbs and although that doesn’t sound like too much, the center of gravity plus the bulkiness make it extremely awkward to carry / transport. It has some nice features, like the tray / recline mechanism, but if you are small framed like me (5’1″, 115 lbs), I would stay away from this one!

  27. marvinandstacyplus2 on June 30th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I really like this stroller a lot bought cause it cleans very easily not like Graco at all, comes apart well, the only thing that isnt my favorite is that the basket is small but we just down sized our diaper bag to fit. But my 1 year old fits this so well and will for a long time.

  28. Christian's Mom on June 30th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I did a ton of research on consumer reports and online and ended up with this b/c it was a travel system but not as large. I loved the stroller for the first 5 months then it went downhill from there. I have gone through three sets of wheels from the company, and I have only had the stroller for not even a year! The sun visor is an absolute joke! Doesn’t shield any sun and always pops off its tracking when I add an additional visor purchased seperate. I am in the process of returing it with my warranty thru babies r us and looking for something that works!

  29. Taya on July 1st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller after having the Chicco travel system, and wish I would have bought something different. It is super bulky, does not fold/store well, and not a “lightweight” stroller as claimed. After having it for less then a year, a piece from the sun shade came out, and the handles are all coming apart. The basket is worthless! Would think from the name of Chicco, the stroller would be better

  30. Henry's Mom on July 2nd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I like this stroller I have four kids from age nine to one. I have had double strollers and the Graco carseat combo’s overall this one is the best. It is a little heavy but I dont want a sroller that is to light they tend to be cheap made and flimsy no mater how much you pay for them. I have a small van and it dosen’t take up to much space. I can still get a lot of bags in with it.My son loves it he hated riding in the graco stroller.

  31. On-the-move-mom on July 18th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I have a one year old and have used this since he was a newborn. I used it with the Chicco Keyfit 30. I love how compact this is, I did not want a bulky travel system. I love that it folds up like an umbrella stroller. I can open and fold it without a problem while holding my son. The sunshade can come all the way down to cover my son to block the sun or rain. I do a lot of walking for exercise and this stroller has been great. The handles are plenty high for my husband to use as well. My only complaints at all are that the basket is not easy to access when the seat is reclined and that that I frequently run the rugged wheels into things while I am shopping (this could easily be attributed to my poor steering though). This has a nice 5 point harness, but I only strap it around my son;s waist so that he can sit up extra straight and have a little more freedom. Wonderful stroller for the price, I would have paid more! I am now considering the twin Trevi as I am expecting again.

  32. Brianna on August 3rd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I bought this to go with the Chicco Key Fit 30 which I loved. Unfortunately, this stroller just doesn’t cut it. It would be fine if you know you’re only going to use it once a month (but then why buy a Chicco for that few uses?). I used the stroller everyday…grocery store, mall, going for walks with the dogs and it very quickly (within a couple dozen uses) began shaking and squeaking. My husband tightened it up but it didn’t help. It’s not a very well constructed stroller. Almost cheap in the design quality.

    On top of the flimsy quality, if the stroller back was in the lay down position, it completely blocked access to the basket underneath…not a big deal because we didn’t bring tons of stuff with us but annoying none the less.

    I would have only given it one star but since it fits with the Keyfit and I love the Keyfit, I gave it 2 but for the money, I’d buy the Cortina set instead….

    We ended up just getting a jogger with a swivel wheel…works great

  33. Mom of 2 on August 24th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Stroller folds up quickly and easily to a great size. I had a complete travel system with my first child and found it very heavy and bulky in my car. This stroller does allow for the Chicco Car Seat to snap in place and also provides a fold-up umbrella style stroller after the baby gets larger. I found it a great product for the price and am very pleased.
