    I’ve been using this system since my daughter was born 8 months ago. I see someone else with this stroller and car seat almost every time I go shopping; it’s very popular and often times receive compliments on the fabric print and color! The stroller is a breeze to maneuver,however, access to the basket is limited. Also, the back rest fails to support a child fully upright; my child must hold on to the cup tray to sit fully erect because even at it’s most upright position the back rest lays a bit reclined. Overall, it’s a practical & useful system and a good value for the price.

    It is an absolute must-have! My baby Haylen loves this travel system! It is the best travel system out there. It mathches everything! Her room, her bouncer, her swing, her playard, her diaper bag,…etc. I have evrything Cherry Blossom and I love it all!

    I was so mad when they took this item out of stores. It is a must have. I have everything Graco Cherry Blossom! My baby loves this! She will sleep o play n it. We took it to Disney World when she was 1 week old, and I thought that it would be so heavy to push that me and my hubby would hav to take turn pushing, but I didn’t let him push once! I love it so much! It is a must have for your little princess! <3

    We loved everything about this set… EXCEPT the basket is alittle too small!!! OH and the seat doesn’t sit completely straight up. Everything else was Great!!!

  5. Krissy Berwood on June 25th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I can’t wait to put my daughter in this! It is a must-have. It is so lightweight and beautiful. I had this thing set up in 20 minutes! I love it!

  6. Chloes mommy on June 27th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I picked this travel system out because it was really girly and beautiful. I use it everyday. I like the fact that the stroller is so light and easy to use. It wasn’t hard to put together either.

  7. On the Go on July 6th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I love the colors of this travel system and how light weight and easy to move around it is. A couple of my dislikes is when you sit it upright the seat still leans back a little. And when you have the car seat part in the stroller you cannont get axcess to the storage basket underneath.

    I have used this stroller since my daughter was born and now she is 15 months. It has been slightly better than average in that it was dependable, somewhat easy to maneuvar, fit in my tiny car, and had the combo. But let me say- there are some things I wish I had known about strollers while pregnant.

    First, I want one that lets my baby face me once she’s out of the carrier. Its hard to see her and the straps aren’t great so I don’t often use them and suddenly, she’s stroller surfing! I also miss out on bonding time since I can’t see her and we don’t talk much on walks. Its also hard to point fun things out to her when she can’t see where I’m pointing or my face.

    Secondly, the shade only goes so far and the seat only tips back so much-not flat. I used to walk with the stroller reversed and behind me to keep her out of the sun sometimes. I still hate that I can’t reverse the shade or seat to give her better protection.

    Third, that little storage bin under the bottom- pretty useless. You can fit things under there until they grow out of the carrier and that’s it. Trust me, they grow out faster than you think and then you still have years of toddlerhood ahead of you. You really will be glad you thought about toddlerhood when choosing a stroller.

    Fourth, I’m not athletic at all, but I do like to take walks sometimes and this stroller isn’t so great on gravel or hills. A little too stiff to push well and its hard for your baby to see in there!

    Fifth- the way they have the stroller close gets stiffer and more annoying over time. It becomes a “pat your head and rub your tummy…while juggling a baby” routine. Takes two-three hands to close and as it ages, it takes longer and longer.

    Still, I would have made do, except suddenly the wheels are all off and I can’t turn it well- like a bad cart. To be fair, I suspect that my tiny trunk did it in, but I guess it just took one squish to ruin it. So this stroller is good for the infant phase but doesn’t transition very well into toddlerhood.

  9. Always Strolling on July 6th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I received this stroller as a gift at my baby shower. I LOVE the pink & brown colors!

    The carseat part of the travel system is great. I have a really small car, so I use it without the base…I feel like it is actually safer belted straight onto the seat without the base.

    The stroller I am not crazy about. We take it everywhere, including a lot of use at Disneyland. The basket is a good size, but extremely hard to get to. It has a flip down mechanism, but it doesn’t help me much. Also the seat is pretty flimsy to me. The part that makes it recline or sit up is controlled by a cord thing, and the seat feels uncomfortable to me…like there is a piece of cardboard with some padding over it. And don’t even get me started on the straps, which are adjusted as tight as they go, but are still huge (my daughter is almost 6 months), and hard to buckle.

    I am now researching a different stroller…most likely by Peg Perego…maybe the Uno. I would love to be able to have the baby face me or the other way, without the infant seat.

    If I had it to do over, I would not purchase this system again.

    *I loved this when I saw in store!!! The colors were great…However, once I started using the stroller part with my baby girl who was sitting up on her own, I found a few dislikes.. The back will NOT sit up straight!!! She is very short for her age so she hates to ride in the stroller because she cannot sit up straight and look around…ANYBODY know of any help for this???

    Also, the basket underneath is NOT very roomy…you can’t even fit a larger diaper bag in it…
    🙁 so sad…

  11. TX mom of 2 on July 21st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    The infant carrier/car seat and base worked fine and when the stroller is used with them it was fin also. When my daughter outgrew the infant seat the stroller was a problem. The seat back is very flimsy and won’t sit up straight. My daughter got very frustrated with laying back. She’s constantly trying to sit up straighter. The storage basket on the bottom is difficult to maneuver. It was a struggle to get thinngs out of it. Wouldn’t recommend this set!

  12. savannahs mommy on July 23rd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This system was the only girly system they had when i was pregnant.

    The carseat works great. When installing the base in the car its best to use the latch and the seat belt. or else it will slide when your taking a turn. it was a bit of a struggle since i only had one base using it in 3 cars.

    Now the stroller. It just sucks. my daughter is 8 months old and sits in just the stroller. and the back support is not stable. it doesnt click into place it has straps and with my daughter straped in she pulls on the tray and pulls herself and the back up. she just doesnt sit up straight enough. she wants to look around and cant. we are trying to sell it and get something not so expensive

    I love this carseat and the stroller! We got them as a baby shower gift and I absolutely love the pattern. My daughter always seems very comfortable in the carseat and it is more light-weight than some are so I had no problem carrying it after my c-section. The stroller is just as great. We have a tiny car and it fits great in the trunk, front seat, or back seat. I was surprised to see that so many people complained about the basket underneath. I have a HUGE diaper bag and it fits perfectly underneath along with other things. I also haven’t had a problem with the adjustable seat. Mia is now 6 months and I love the fact that I can have it lay back when she falls asleep and pull it up when she is wide awake and looking around. I would highly recommend this product.

    I would buy this again in a second. I have an 18 month old and have used it since she was born and love it. It much more compact and lighter than other strollers. As far as the stroller not leaning all the way up, my daughter pulls herself up with the tray and sits just fine. We use this stroller every weekend for atleast a couple of hours while our son plays sports and our daughter will sit in her stroller the whole time. Great purchase well used!

  15. MOMMA MIA on August 5th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I love this! My sons, Dallas and River, had safety first but I will not go there again! This seat was for my first daughter ever! Liliana loved the stroller and car seat. The stroller is roomy for her to take a nap and the car seat has a beautiful pattern and is so girly!

  16. On the Go Mom on August 9th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    The car seat is wonderful! You can adjust the straps from the front without having to remove the back straps. However, the stroller SUCKS. The seat lays to far back when it is in the up right position. Also, it is hard to get to the basket when the carseat is attached to the stroller.

  17. cbg on August 10th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I have used this stroller with my little girl from the time she was born to the present only mine is the Delaney pattern. She is now 14mths old. It has all the features of the big, heavy fullsize strollers without all the hassels. It is a breeze to fold and unfold and fits easily into my trunk. My only very minor complaint is that the child’s cup holder is too small for every sippy cup we own. I love this stroller and carseat.

  18. Finally Pink on August 13th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Easy to assemble & close
    Beautiful fabric
    Very lightweight

  19. HoneyBee on August 15th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    The fabric color and print are beautiful. The carseat is great.The stroller on the other hand is awful. Uncomfortable for baby and for mommy. Acces to basket is a joke. Baby cannot sit fully upright because back fails to support this position.

  20. Quik stay @home mom on August 21st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I got mine as a shower gift and i absolutly love it for the most part…my main problem is that my little girl is in the 90 percentile for height so she is going to outgrow it soon and she is only 5 months old…also the car seat is only rated up to 22lbs which if you look at others is low…very easy to install in a car or suv (we have both) i was able to install it at 9 months pragnant with no problems and very easy to put carrier in stroller and then back to base in car…also fairly easy to remove the covering and machine wash when is gets dirty…only complaint is trying to get to the basket when the carrier is in the stroller very difficult…overall i love it

  21. DC on August 24th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    The carseat was great and I never noticed the stroller too much, until my daughter outgrew the carseat… The stroller has NO back support my daughter always looks like she’s hanging on for dear life, she hates sitting back so she holds on to her cupholder area. She hit her mouth once where I got pushed at the mall. I’m selling this already and my baby is only 9 months old. Waste of money! Make sure you check back support on whatever you’re planning to buy!!

  22. Jersey Mom on August 24th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I love the stroller carseat combo! The stroller is easy to open and close. It drives smoothly and the pattern is adorable. The only suggestion I have is that I wish the stroller laid completely flat for sleeping infants. Other than that its worth the money!

  23. Lindsey on August 25th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    My little girl was born in April of this year, I registered in.. February for a March shower. When my family went back to buy the things I’d registered for, they told her this pattern was discontinued. She hunted everywhere for it and ended up finding it in a babies r us store in FL while she was on vacation. We looked everywhere online too! Now it seems it’s back? With new for Fall 2009 stuff..? Strange. Anyway – I get tons of compliments on the pattern, so far my little girl is still using the carrier so I haven’t had to use the stroller without the carrier. I love it so far!

  24. Doting Mi Mi on August 27th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    The car seat is great and I would recommend it. The stroller is not great quality. The seat does not have any support. I am the grandmother and only use it an average of once per week – the wheel is broken and she is only 10 months old.

  25. AZ mom on July 18th, 2010 at 9:02 pm

    I have had this stroller and car seat since my 20 mos old was born. I love it! My daughter has been everywhere from the mall to Disney World and Sea World in this stroller. I think there is plenty of support for her, she is plenty plump for her age and has no problems! It rides great, folds completely easy and the storage and is awesome! I would buy this again and have recommended it to many friends. Our stroller has also been through airports, parks and tossed in cars for road trips, and not one problem!!
