  1. Soon to be FTM on February 9th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Super easy to put together! Moves like a dream with one hand! The car seat and stroller seat is lined in suade and is super, super soft! Seat comes out easy and stroller folds in seconds even for this 5’3″ mom to be. Light to carry seat and stroller is light to load in and out of the car. We had a bad experience with a previous purchase of another product/brand and tested this one inside and out once we got it home to make sure everything works how it is supoose to. Super Happy!

    I saw this travel system online, and at first was a little hesitant on the giraffe print. I wasn’t to sure that my husband would like it. When we went into the store he loved it. We purchased it about a week ago. It was super easy to put together. One hand steering works like a dream, the removable wipes case is so practical. Our son is not due until June, but we couldn’t have picked a better travel system. It is nothing like the one we bought for our older son five years ago. It’s much better.

    Well I actually went to Babies R Us on Saturday to buy The Brown and Red Bombay Graco 32 car seat with the matching stroller Travel System. Until I seen this one. I love how soft the fabric on both the Stroller and Car Seat was. I think my son will be very cuffy in it! I also love the colors and the Giraffe print. I will say it looks better in store I am not shore if I would of bought it just by looking at it online! But when you really see it in store and feel how soft it is you will love it!!

    I bought this travel set last month and LOVE it. It manoveurs and turns very well, its lightweight, and hass alot of storage space without being bulky. The car seat snaps onto the stroller so easy. and the push button fold down is very handy as well. No negative comments, its well worth the [$]!!!

  5. Officer and a Gentlemen on March 22nd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    My son is not due till this June but I really enjoy the easy and control of the stroller. This isn’t my first rodeo so I’ve dealt with a few other strollers in my time and this takes the cake. The large storage, easy one grip handle and plus the one button fold and release really caught my eye. I also like the simple things like the griped cup holder, pivoting child’s tray, and of course the color and style. I would recommend this to family and friends for the comfort and ease.

  6. RynesMommy on March 30th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We absolutely love this travel system! We were not impressed with some of the other strollers we test drove around the store but this one caught our eye and did wonderful on our test run. Plus you can’t go wrong with the cute giraffe print! I am a SAHM so I am usually by myself when I am taking my son out and with this being so easy to use and not too heavy I have no problems at all. The stroller drives like a dream and my son loves riding around in it so that allows me to get a lot of shopping done without having a fussy baby. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because the handle on the carrier has a little give in it, which I am getting used to but did concern me at first.

  7. Jenree125 on April 2nd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I really like the system so far. I have not had a chance to use the stroller. I stripped all the fabric from the carseat and washed it on the gentle cycle and was very dissapointed to find that the canopy and the giraffe print pillows had rips in them. Maybe putting them in a pillow case to wash them would have helped.

  8. kenvitos on April 7th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Cool handling tight turns around the store felt like i was on a race track, my son who is 8 tested another brand and he was all over the place knocking over stuff from car seats to cribs, from the stopping force i thought it had brembo brakes made for a porche. this things glides.. make me want to have more kids and spend time pushing the stroller for hour on in.. thanks.

    p.s it’s a great stroller…..

  9. MomToBe on April 15th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I had registered for a fancier and almost twice as expensive travel system but after not recieving it after a few baby showers and having been faced with purchasing one on my own, I seriously reconsidered! I went to several locations of Babies R Us and tried out every travel system them had on display. Here’s why I fell in love with this one.I was looking for something unisex in color but still a little bit fun. My husband wasn’t too keen on pushing our daughter around in a hot pink travel system (even though that would have been my first pick!) so the color on this one made us both happy. In person, this system is more khaki than gray like the picture appears. Also the fun giraffe print and bright orange accents give it that little something extra. I also liked how easy it was to maneuver. The “one hand steeering” really sticks to it’s claim. Even though it’s a little bit bulky, I could turn it around the sharpest of corners in our house! The storage basket underneath is amazing. This is a big plus over my more expensive travel system I had chosen before. I love the cup holders and handy wet wipes container and small storage box in the “parent’s station” as well. The handgrips are super soft to hold. It’s pretty easy to fold up and open as well.The price was also a huge selling point! I used a 15% off coupon from Babies R Us and it ended up costing me about [$].It fits in my car! I drive a Mazda 3 so I was a bit concerned that it wouldn’t fit in my trunk, but it did fit very nicely. It’s not the smallest travel system and I don’t have tons of room to spare once it’s in my trunk, but it fits and that’s what counts to me!It’s super easy to assemble! I make no claims that I am good at following booklets of instructions and almost always have to have my husband handle the “assembly required” projects, but gave this one a shot and was quite impressed with myself! It took about 10 minutes for me to assemble the whole thing…I am only giving this travel system 4 stars because I have not yet tried it with our daughter, she is due in 2 weeks. Also, I wish it folded up just a little tighter, but overall I still love it.Highly recommended!

  10. Gannon's Mommy on May 5th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I bought this travel system as a 2nd or 3rd choice. Of course like most mom’s I had a different one listed on my registry.. And after not receiving it I figured I’d end up buying one myself.. Soo.. Out of the […] strollers, the toys-r-us selection, […] and babiesrus… This is the one I purchased. At first I wasn’t too fond of it.. Until I noticed the one I wanted was sold out. And that this one had many pros that the one I wanted didn’t have.. And this was only 30 dollars more. First, on the stroller I like that the shade folds down to protect the sun when shining directly on the front[so if you’re walking towards the sun, your baby isn’t cooking] Second, I liked that everything was so easy to change for size buckle, and remove for cleaning. I also liked how easy it was to fold and unfold things… And it was very easy to assemble!! I’m horrible at assembling, and at 8.5months pregnant, 5’2″ tall, I was able to complete the task in about 7minutes or less… Including unpacking time!!!The only problem I had with assembling, was when I was putting the shade on the carrier.. I put it on backwards and couldn’t get it off for anything, but my boyfriend got it for me… Like most travel systems[I imagine] there is a warranty, and you can contact evenflo to order extra parts/replaceable parts. Which I think will come in handy for sure!!I haven’t actually used this with my child, since I’m due in a week, but so far I love it! It’s easy for me to maneuver, though it is a bit big.. BUT ITS A TRAVEL SYSTEM are any of them really that small??? And it’s absolutely cute for a little boy. =] And goes well with my safari theme.[I also liked the cupholders for mommy and baby]

    This item is a 10. The colors are fantastic. The quality is wonderful. We couldn’t be happier.

  12. Mom to 2 on May 29th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    With my 9 month belly in front of me, I was able to put this stroller together in about 10 minutes. No tools needed, it was VERY easy!

    Very easy to manuever around with the joystick handle. I also noticed that this stroller is lighter than most travel systems. Yes, it is a tad bulky but GREAT for outings and will hold all your stuff! I have a Honda Accord and it fits well in my trunk. Granted not much more can fit in there with it, but it does fit!

    Its a brand new model they told me at BRU. The carseat is one of the lightest when I compared it to other travel systems coming in at 7lbs. Every pound counts when you add your little one! The main stroller was also lighter by a 1-2 lbs when I compared it to others as well.

    You won’t be disappointed. Its a great looking stroller. If you don’t like the giraffe print (my husband calls it Camo) they are just extra cushions and come right off, leaving you with a tan and orange stroller/carseat.

    We purchased the Even Flow Odyssey Travel System because we liked the options it had. We found out today though while installing it in both our vehicles (We purchased multiple bases) that it isn’t as good as we initially thought. One of the main options we liked on this travel system was the shape of the handle as it fits very nicely in the hand, we felt this was a real selling point. The problem is that the shape of the handle causes it to stick out about 3-4″ more then other travel systems. Since the Handle needs to be left clear so it can swing freely in an accident it causes the driver or passenger seat (Depending on what side you mount it on) to be moved 3-4″ more forward. I own a 2006 Toyota 4Runner and although 4″ doesn’t seem like a lot in this vehicle it makes all the difference between your knees touching the dashboard or not. I am now planning to look at a different travel system… My wife owns a Nissan Murano and it was not as much a problem in her car (The Seats still needed to be mvoed forward slighlty). I caution that if you own a vehicle with a small back-seat or one where you sit lower to the floor and extend your legs out (Like a Toyota 4Runner) that you may want to consider looking at a different Travel System..

  14. Monkey's Mommy on June 11th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This stroller/ carseat was a gift for me. The model in the store worked great. When I got mine home, everything appeared to be fine. Walking around a store (where ground is smoother) is fine, but God forbid you want to take this thing out on the sidewalk! It provides a very bumpy ride that wakes my son up, even when I’m trying to be gentle (always!). Alhtough the height is great for pushing, it makes it difficult to push down on the handle to raise the front up at bumps and curbs. My stroller is difficult to pull from folded to assembled. It only has opened on the first try ONCE in four months. Steering is a nightmare, with or without the front wheels being locked.
    Speaking of locked wheels: I locked the wheels on my baby’s stroller, checked by rolling it back and forth, then I went inside (five feet away, to lock the door) and heard a click. We are fairly level, with a SLIGHT down-slope (hence the need for brakes) and I had to run after the stroller because the stupid brakes had failed! I was close enough to grab him after only about five feet, but if I were to have left him completely to go back in the house for something (which I wouldn’t ever have done) he would have wound up in the street! They now do not work AT ALL, and I had to go buy a new one so I could have my baby in our yard when I do my gardening. I’m terrified to take my hand off of the stroller, even when we’re on level ground.
    The car seat is very difficult to detatch from the base. It takes a ton of wiggling, and wakes my son up. We now just leave it in the car. Also it seems to be not as sturdy as other carseats so I’m buying a new one.

    Basically I would recommend this carseat/stroller combo only as a backup or maybe for use with grandparents.
    It’s not a terrible product, it’s just not a great one. It’s possible that mine was one of the only ones this has happened to, but still- spend the extra 30+ bucks and get a more delux model if it’s going to be your main set. And NEVER leave it on any kind of incline, no matter how slight! Don’t make my stupid mistake!

  15. FIRST TIME MOM on June 15th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I love it! Very easy to put together,easy to manuever. i love the one handle option. It is very easy to fold and unfold.Very smooth to operate.i love that it comes with headsupport some other expensive ones don’t. The seat where the baby sits in the stroller has nice cushion for the booty. I looked at the Chicco ones for more money and they are hard as rocks.

  16. KarKar2 on June 22nd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    The Nestino Travel System is very easy to put together and gives you a smooth ride I use the system for my 14month old great nephew and he also loves it cause now he has a tray to but things on just Love it so much
    there is nothing I dislike about this item

  17. newmommy123 on July 24th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This travel system is the best out there in my opinion. The material is sooo soft unlike many of the other travel systems we looked at before purchasing. It is also very easy to use- I had no problem setting up the stroller and I even had a c-section!

  18. Bedrest And Bored on July 27th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We had spent a lot of time online reading reviews and in the stores testing strollers and car seats. I really loved the easy in and easy out, my hubby loved the handle, and we were both ecstatic about the cute design of the fabric. However, after registering for and receiving this travel system we were sorely disapointed that it was made so poorly.

    We have not had our little boy yet, but in the week that we have had our car seat, the canopy has broke twice….once out of the package, I contacted Evenflo and got the replacement part, and the second time it broke as soon as my other half touched it. The brakes on the stroller itself are also very unstable and makes me very nervous that they will brake as well after a few uses.

    Those are some of the minor issues, the major issue that we are having is proper vehicle installation. No matter which setting I have the base on, it does not tighten down enough to wiggle less than the 1″ that is safe for an accident. This is very sad and the reason we are returning it to buy something we both feel is going to be much more safe if the worst happens. Not to mention the awesome handle we love is not safe to leave in the upwards position (like other brands) and does not fit well into either of our vehicles, one of which is an SUV.

    After much debating we have decided to return it and get something that has higher safety ratings sadly as I do love this travel system, just sorely disapointed that it does not seem like it is made with quality materials.

    This travel system is wonderful! The fabric is so soft and comfortable and the colors are awesome!

  20. Vanessa on July 27th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I chose the stroller because of the weight, style and price. The orange and brown colors make it the perfect stylish unisex stroller. It’s super easy to fold down and set-up. The stroller is a bit big and bulky with the car seat in it. Although he was probably a little too young (2 1/2 months), I would take him out of the car seat and strap him into the stroller and he absolutley loved it! An issue I’ve had is the way it sits in the base in my car. I’d heard most car seats sit very upright in SUVs (I have a Tahoe). This one does. As an infant, even with the head support, my baby’s head tended to slump forward and over. It would scare me! Make sure you get the headrest mirror so you can keep an eye out and take it easy on your turns!:)

  21. Steph on July 31st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I bought this for my niece, Stephanie. She love it. She live on an island in Alaska and had to fly out to Juno 2 weeks prior to the birth of the baby. She needed to have a stroller and a car seat before she left the island. […]. Thank you,Toni Palmer

  22. Mommy of two on August 4th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller, it’s very bright and fun! It has a giraffe pattern on the cushion surrounding the baby’s head and also through out the stroller. The stroller is very easy to pop open, and just easy to use. The only thing that I did not like at first, was trying to close it. I did not realize that you had to pull the handle in really hard to get it to close but once you got it, the stroller just folds closed. Stroller was very easy to put together and has a large compartment to put your diaper bag, purse etc..the cup holder even folds closed. A lot of other strollers you have to remove the cup holder…Also has a place to put your wipes and cream for diaper changes…and the stroller also goes flat so that your child isn’t propped up while sleeping. The carseat is also great for preemies…my son was 7lbs 5 oz, 19 inch long and i had to adjust the straps up more to fit him…so it would fit perfect for babies of smaller size.

  23. Stacy on August 15th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I have to admit that this was not the first travel system that I registered for on my registry. I originally had a Graco travel system. However, I decided to let my boyfriend chose which stroller he liked best and this is the one that he chose. I didn’t get a chance to put it together, my mom’s friend did that before my baby shower so it would be set up at the shower. My sonloves sitting in the car seat and he is very content with it. We did have to purchase a cradler because he does like to let his head drop since he is only a month old but I think pretty soon we will be able to remove it. The travel system is so easy to use when I have to open it to use it and to fold it back down. I could never ask for a better system!!
