    We just bought this stroller this weekend, but so far it is a nice stroller. It is the right height for both my husband and me. It turns very well and has a nice ride. It fits nicely in the back of our SUV(not alot of room behind the 3rd row seat and the back door). We have a 2 month old that liked it very well. The reason I did not give it 5 stars is because it is heavy for a littler stroller.

  2. Dawson and Calleigh's mom on January 31st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller for my son, and loved it. I steers easy, even with one hand. It folds small, which makes it nice if you don’t have a large vehicle. I like that you have the size of a full size stroller, but it folds up to just a little larger than an umbrella stroller. If I had one complaint it would be that the cup holder hangs off the side of the stroller and gets picked off easy when you are going through aisles at the store. No big deal though. I am getting ready to buy it again for my daughter in a more girly color combo, because my sons was burgundy and grey.

    After a lot of research, I am so happy with this stroller…I wanted something like an umbrella stroller but more sturdy and similar to a full size stroller ..This is it!..Size is very compact like an umbrella stroller, and only 19 lbs, but actually feels lighter…It has a huge easy accessible basket, and cup holder for adults, I love the child bar(so you can attach what you want for the child, such as toys),and its an easy stroll! Dont bother with the Graco IPO Umbrella because this is the same size, and for a little more money you get the child bar, and much larger basket..Also, I think the Moasic is more sturdy and it is only 2 lbs heavier…Hope this helps!

    This stroller was a great stroller when I used it as a travel system with the Graco Snugride carseat – it was very sturdy for this purpose. This stroller is also pretty heavy for the type of stroller it is.
    I walk quite a bit and after putting lots of miles on this stroller on sidewalks and indoors it has begun to wear out (wheels worn down and harder to open/close and decline in steering). The steering becomes more difficult as the child gets heavier in my opinion – or it is just worn out.
    My biggest complaint about the mosaic stroller is the canopy – it is virtually useless unless the sun is directly overhead or behind the pusher of the stroller. The sun is constantly in my child’s eyes and I end up hanging a light weight blanket over the stroller so the sun stays off of her – it is a pretty annoying problem that I had not anticipated. I have just purchased a new stroller after having used the Mosaic for 9 months. I purchased a 3-wheel type stroller with a nice, large, more versatile canopy and it drives like a dream and folds much more compactly with just as much storage.

  6. 1st time mom on February 18th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This is such a great stroller system. I originally got a big travel system for my baby shower and then returned it because everyone had it, and it was so bulky and big. I was looking for a light weight stroller and i found it. It’s so cute and compact. I really recommend this lightweight stroller and the infant car seat is a perfect bonus if you have a infant.

  7. Experienced Mommy on February 19th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I bought this for my 1 month old since our SafeSeat carseat did not have a matching stroller. (This was the closest color I could find)

    It works great as a travel system. It has a nice compact fold. It is easy to fold… Easy to take the carseat on & off… It also Maneuvers nicely.

    BUT the stroller is difficult for me to unfold. (My husband does not have a problem though and he says its the best stroller we have owned!) I also think it is a bit heavy for what it is!

  8. A's mommy on February 24th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I picked out this stroller for my daughter (as the travel system) and I have been using it for 3 months and still love it and really have no complaints. It is very compact, not overly heavy, and very easy to steer. Also I love that it isn’t really tall because I am a short person.

  9. MomOF2 on February 26th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller…I have a 2 1/2 yr old & a 7 month old so my primary stroller is a double. But I wanted a nice light weight stroller for times when it is just my daughter and I. I did a lot of research when choosing my stroller because I did not want to make the same mistake I did with my first child. I just picked any old stroller I thought was cute (you know 1st time mom). It happened to be the Combi Cosmo & I absolutely hated it & it was not cheap either. So after reading reviews and knowing what I wanted, (reclining seat, nice storage basket, cup holder for mom, light and easy to maneuver)I came across this one. It was absolutely perfect. The size, the color, the price, everything. And this was only seeing it on line. So I ordered it hoping my bubble wouldn’t burst when it came. […] It was so easy to assemble; the opening and folding of the stroller is so simple, and overall the stroller is extremely light. I also like that I can use it with my car seat if I need to. On my first trip out using it, it is great. I love the steering & it is so easy to maneuver. I have to say I am a picky person & after my research I was going to buy a Zooper Waltz stroller which retailed much higher but they were not in stock so I happened upon the Graco Mosaic & so glad I did because I love it. And the price is so reasonable. I almost missed this stroller too because Babies R Us does not have it listed under light weight strollers it’s under full size.

  10. mom on the go on March 4th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This is a good deal for the $$. I had first purchased the “convenient” frame stroller that you pop in the car seat because I wanted something lightweight. To make a long story short my husband put the stroller in the garage behind my car and I ran it over! When I went to shop for a new one I saw the Mosaic one and instantly loved it! It happened to match my car seat perfectly. Putting it together is easy but The cup holder will not click on properly. It keeps falling off and it’s really irritating. Also there is no cup/snack holder for my daughter for when she gets older. I have been looking for attachments but none of them have been able to fit on the front bar because it’s too thick.

  11. mommy2gr8kids78 on March 7th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This is BY FAR, the best stroller I have ever bought! I have 3 children under the age of 5, the youngest is 4 months and this stroller surpasses any others! I have always used Graco products but this particular stroller is awesome! Lightweight, easy to push, and stores a bunch underneath! My baby loves to nap in the reclining position and I love the 5 point harness and easy 1 handed fold!! Keep em coming Graco!!

  12. mom of a handfull on March 15th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    well i am expecting baby number two and as all second time moms you wanna be better prepared and you usually know what you like well when it comes to a stroller i know exactly what i want and i found it with this stroller. now i’m not due till september but i like to shop early well i went to the store to try out strollers and i loved this one. my daughter is almost four and is about 43 pounds and did not brake it and i love that it fit the car seat but is still small and compact folds to about the same size as my maclaren now the just so moms now this stroller does come in another color. for those with boys it comes in a blue and gray color and is available at graco website for the same price.
    great things about this stroller: it fits the car seat, compact, great storage space, great hight for taller people, wonderful open and close and easy, all around great stroller no neagtives

  13. NewMommy26 on March 19th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I really like this stroller I have the Sungride carseat to match it as well. It’s not too heavy and the carseat is not too big and bulky, my daughter hasn’t been born yet but the seat seems to be very comfortable from the material and quality. The stroller has a very sleek design and is convenient for a mom on the go!

  14. Kaye the neat freak on April 1st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I purchased this same stroller 2 years ago in a pink & black version. I was immediately impressed by the look of the stroller and had to have one. During the first use of this stroller I enjoyed the easy set up and manuvering. Then I noticed that the canopy served no purpose except to keep popping off. Once I folded this unit up, the front 2 wheels lay up against the pink rim of the canopy & permanently stained it. Now my daughter & I stroll around with a tire track right in the center of the canopy.

  15. Lexi's mom on April 4th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We bought this product because our other stoller that came with the car seat was so big and heavy! I loved this product but hate the sun shade… Also makes noise while we push it!! But it wasnt that much money and I love how small it is and that it is very durable!!

  16. Mommy of 4 on April 5th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I love this stoller. I was looking for a light weight stroller for my newborn little girl. Something that reclined so she could lay in it since she is only 2 weeks old. Not only does it recline for her but I loved that I can hook my graco safe-seat carseat to it. It connects to the stroller really well and it also has straps to connect with the carseat that secures it even more. Its a bit heavy but nothing I can’t handle. It also folds up small like a umbrella stroller. I am very impressed so far with it…exactly what I was looking for!!!!

  17. mother of two on April 13th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    great stroller I love it its easy to push smooth light weight easy to open and close. I love this item! I had a VERY hard to manuver stroller with my older child it was big bulky and wouldnt turn for beans this stroller rides like a dream, when the baby is fussy i can take her out and still push the stroller with ease. The only complaint i have is the canopy does unsnap which is slightly annoying but i can over look that with all the other bennifits This is definatly the best baby item iv recived. I love it!

  18. Alex Grace on April 16th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I love love love this stroller! I saw this in toys r us and just had to have it! I had a bulky travel system also by Graco, and I was tired of it taking up my entire trunk, and being so bulky, and heavy. Also the travel systems just arent as stylish as I would like! I love the recline, the style, how it moves, easy to push (I can easily push with one hand), how easy to close it, how little it folds up and the color combo!

    The only part that I didnt really like, or dont like is when it is closed, there is a little latch that holds it over a bolt sort of thing. I sent my fiance out with it for the first time and when he tried to open it, he pried it open and kind of busted it to where it does not lock *as well* as before. I did hear of another person creating a velcro sort of thing to help it stay closed.

  19. Mommyof2 on April 19th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    i bought this stroller for my at the time 6 month old i havent stopped using it she is now 9 months.The 3 months ive had it i love it ive always bought Graco items cause they seem to last long.

  20. Maya the mom thats always on the go on April 30th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I absolutely love this stroller. Its so small and compact, it does the exact job I needed it to. I recommended this stroller to parents who are always on the go or to parents who are looking for a light, compact, and easy to use stroller.The only con to me is the small basket. Well worth the $$$$.

  21. Adopting Mom on May 6th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We thought we were done having children until our sweet angel came to us through an adoption opportunity. I had pretty much gotten rid of all of our baby items, but really needed a stroller. This stroller is awesome! It has all the perks of a full size stroller except it is light, folds up small, moves like a charm and is so neat looking! We were given a graco infant car seat to borrow from my sister and it fits into this stroller perfect! I would buy this stroller again and again!

  22. Momma Donna on May 9th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller. I own too many strollers to count and this is the one that I use the most. I am currently using it with my newborn. I use it with her Graco carrier. I also still use this stroller with my almost three year old, when we are out and about with baby. I highly recommend this stroller to anyone and everyone!

  23. Great Aunt Needed help! on May 12th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    […]She said that they would like it!

  24. Emerson's Mommy on May 13th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Great price! Great stroller! I was using my Chicco Cortina Travel System which I love as well but the stroller is a bit bulky and when you’re scooting all over town it was getting annoying to drag it out of the car all day long. I came across the Graco Mosaic and not only did I think it was adorable looking I loved the feel of it. The handles were at a perfect height, it rode nice and smooth, the seat reclined which is hard to find on an inexpensive lightweight stroller, and it had pretty decent storage. My daughter Emerson is very comfy in her Graco. It’s roomy and because of the reclining seat she naps well in it too!I HIGHLY recommend this stroller. It’s attractive and it’s a great buy. I used my BRU coupon and with tax it came out to only [$]. Pretty good deal!

  25. Mom of Mia on May 15th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I am very happy with this stroller. I recently bought it to replace the snap and go that I used with my infant car seat. I didn’t want a huge stroller with all the bells and whistles, or something too rickety. The Mosaic fits perfectly in my compact trunk, it’s easy to open and fold up and wheels easily around stores. It is very lightweight and yet quite sturdy. Her diaper bag fits nicely in the basket and I can hang my purse from the handle. I really like how the safety harness converts from 3 to 5 pt and adjusts easily. My only issue is that since I have a long stride my feet kick the wheels sometimes, but it’s not a huge problem (I’m sure this would happen with any stroller). My baby seems very content and comfortable in the stroller and it’s convenient to use.

  26. Mom of 3 on May 28th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I have been through many strollers and this is by far the easiest to fold and unfold with one hand. Works great with Graco snug ride car seat.

  27. mamapink on June 1st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    very easy to use. I wanted a mid size stroller that wasn’t as heavy and bulky as the travel system. This is also great because it recieves my matching infant seat. Easy to fold and unfold. Maneuvers well and has a smooth ride. Assembly is very easy also. Great product.

  28. Brayden's Mommy on June 3rd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller in the Sage green pattern.

    The firt time I used this stroller I was on vacation and had borrowed it from my cousin’s babysitter. I used it for over a week and absolutely had to have one for myself. I had the Graco LiteRider travel system (smooth ride, huge basket) and a cheap umbrella stroller.

    I wanted something that had the big basket and cup holder like the LiteRider but folded small like the umbrella stroller. This does exactly that. Although the basket isn’t as big as the LiteRider it’s still a decent size. The basket goes all the way under the seat (good for coats or other flat, stuffable things). I can easily hang the diaper bag from the handles.

    It is a really nice stroller to push. It’s smooth and I’ve never had a surface that it didn’t do well on. I just spray the wheels with some WD-40 from time to time and it’s like new. It’s also a good height for my husband and I. He’s close to 6′ and I’m more like 5′. The handles are comfortable.

    The seat recline has endless possibilities. It is an easy one hand adjust. It’s a strap that you just pull to incline and push a button to recline. It’s a smooth recline to, I could easily do it with a sleeping child and not wake them.

    I also liked that it worked with the Graco infant seats. Although I never got to try it out (my son was out of the infant seat by the time we got this) I look forward to using it with the next one.

    The fold is really compact. Our LiteRider wouldn’t fit in the trunk of our compact car, but this does. It really does fold up like the umbrella stroller. If it didn’t have the curve to it I’d say it was pretty close to the same size. I also like how the bar for the seat unlatches and moves away for easy in and out of the seat.

    Now for what I would say are areas in need of improvement. No tray/cupholder for child. Because of the compact fold there is really no way to have a tray for the seat. There are aftermarket products that remedy that. I found one that is pretty deep and has 2 cup holders. When the seat is reclined it’s pretty hard to get into the basket. I like the way the LiteRider basket folds down for easy access. I don’t really think there is a way to get access to it from the side but maybe there is, I honestly haven’t tried it. When folded the front wheels touch the canopy. I would suggest putting something in between the two to keep the canopy clean. It is also hard to push with one hand.

    Other than that this is my favorite stroller. I am dreading when my son is too big to use it. It is a smooth ride and easy to push. I would highly recommend using it.

    Sorry for the long post, I just wanted to be thorough.

  29. PDXmanx on June 5th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I am a first time mom, with a four month old baby. When I broke my travel system stroller I needed something that still works with my infant seat, but would hold up when my daughter got older. I looked around a lot, and until I found this the only thing I liked was the Joovy Kooper. The Mosaic is half the price and has all the features I love. The only down I found was the small sun shade. And that is something I can deal with because well, most strollers dont have sun shades that do much.

  30. first time mom on June 6th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I really like this stroller. It rides smoothly and manouvers nicely. It does have limited space in the basket when in full recline and the shade is not quite long enough. I bought an extension shade and its fine. I love how tall the handles are since Im 5’10”. We also like how the front bar is padded a little and is removable. The stroller fits fine in my truck and dosnt take up much space when folded. Its all over a good buy.

  31. blessed3x on June 7th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I am a mom of 3 all 4yrs. and younger. We bought a stroller/carseat combo with our first child and have used it with all three kids. It was bulky, but had lots of room. I wanted a lightweight stoller that had more room than an umbrella stroller. This stroller was just what I was looking for.
    Sara Kate(14months) enjoys riding in it. It is easy to fold and unfold. And doesn’t take up alot of room in our SUV. It has ample basket room (more than the other lightweight stollers I looked at.). And the parent cup holder is nice. My only complaint is I wish it had a tray on the front instead of a bar,which is removable.
    Overall I am very happy with it so far.

  32. Emma's mommy on June 13th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I just got this stroller and am in love with it already!!! We had a travel system and hated how heavy it was then we had the back breaking umbrella stroller and the chico umbrella stroller now I am sold on this new stroller!!! I love how it folds like a umbrella stroller but is not cheaply made and is comfortable for my little one and mommy!! This will be the last stroller I buy love the colors pink and brown!

  33. shelly on June 13th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Really like this stroller and that the infant carseat fits in it. Had to buy because the full size stroller wouldn’t fit in my car’s trunk even though I have a midsize car with a large trunk. This fits perfect and is easy to use. Also it steers really nice and is smooth. The basket was just big enough for my huge purse and mini diaper bag.

  34. H - mom of 3 on June 13th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    this stroller is easy to use in all aspects. the only problem i have had is getting the cup holder to stay on. I always had a bigger stroller with my first 2 kids and can’t believe how much nicer this one is! definitely recommend it!

  35. First time mom on June 27th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Easy to put together. I have a really small car and it fits great in it. Very well made product.

  36. AveRy grACes' MomMY on July 8th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I use her stroller everywhere we go. its lightweight and so easy to store in the trunk of my car. i would recommend buying the stroller and car seat seperate the “travel system” is nice but the strollers are huge and heavy!

  37. V's MommY* on July 12th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    So i read all the reviews online before i bought this stroller and when i bought it the 1st one ended up being broken after that i exchanged it and got another one and that one was broken 2 so i guess the 3rd time is a charm or because i put it together in the store but it finally worked. its very lightweight but feels very sturdy to hold my daughter, and its very small for those tiny stores. the back adjustment is weird and baby sits back low.i would recommend it but i would say look at everything and try to put it together in the store if possible

  38. Mom on July 13th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We’ve had this stroller for 3 years with 3 kids and it is the best everyday stroller!!! It is extremely lightweight making it VERY easy to lift. It is very compact too so it stores great in the trunk of the car. We had a fairly small trunk, but we were able to store this stoller in the car full time and still have space for groceries. I love it because it can hold the Graco carseats as well. The only downfalls are a small basket space and the seat doesn’t recline flat. The basket can hold the diaper bag, but not much else. I do wish the back reclined all the way though for easy diaper changing. Overall I absolutely LOVE this stroller!!!!

  39. G,H, and P's Mom on July 18th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We got this stroller a couple of months ago and I love it. I started to get the full-size stroller that matches my daughter’s car seat, but after looking at both strollers in the store, I decided to go with this one. It was a good decision on my part.
    This stroller can be unfolded with one hand. I love how you can use your foot to snap it open and it is easy to push and turn with one hand as well. Our SafeSeat 32 fits in it and I can put things in the basket below and on the handles.
    I use this stroller on a daily basis and it is wonderfully made. It folds compactly and fits in the back of our mini van. Ours still looks brand new! I would highly recommend it.

  40. lovingmommy on July 27th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller it is easy to put together and to push. It is not bulky allowing you to go through racks of clothes at the dept store. The only thing is the cup holder does not stay on.

  41. Mom to Emilia on August 11th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We bought this stroller a few months ago and it is wonderful. It is a nice compact umbrella type stroller. The seat almost fully reclines which is great for my 14th month old even though she doesn’t take naps in her stroller very often. I like that it is compact but still offers quite a bit of room like a full size stroller. It is easy to steer one handed. The cup holder manages to stay on my stroller. We bought this stroller for our upcoming cruise and Disney world trip and I feel that it will get us by perfectly instead of hauling the quattro tour stroller. We chose this one over the ipo for the bar on the front which is removable and the fact we could latch her Safeseat onto it if we needed to. The stroller was very easy to put together. It has a pretty big storage basket for an umbrella style stroller. Easily holds my diaper bag.

    I wish that it had a child’s tray to put my daughter’s sippy cup and snacks. The canopy on the stroller is pretty much useless unless the child is laying down which my daughter is leaning on the front bar most of the time.

  42. Mom of 2 on August 15th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I LOVE this stroller!! It is easy and quick to fold up and put in my car (which is important when you live in Phoenix in the summer)! My daugther enjoys riding in it and is able to take comfortable naps when I recline the seat. The seat is able to recline to a laying down position, which other strollers do not offer. The cup holder and basket are also convenient features. I highly recommend this model to anyone who is looking for a lightweight stroller!

  43. busy mom of 3 on August 18th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    great light weight.. folds easily and unfolds easily. no food or cup holder for baby. hard to get a diaper bag in the bottom basket hen infant car seat is on stroller.

  44. Mother of Two on August 21st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is pretty good. Everyone has already mentioned the pros so I will mention the cons: The foam on the handles starting coming off of my stroller immediately. They cracked within two weeks and now the left handle has the foam coming off completely. This is extremely unsightly and annoying. The stroller squeaks after just 3 months of use, never experienced that with any other stroller I’ve owned! Also the cupholder constantly comes off when I’m taking the stroller out of the trunk. It’s not that lightweight either! The worst part about this stroller is the location of the brakes. Don’t even think you can pull this stroller up the stairs because the brakes get stuck on the stairs, making it impossible. For anyone that has stairs up to their house or goes anywhere with stairs, avoid this stroller! This has made traveling to certain places extremely difficult for me. Even the cheap no name strollers have brakes that are strategically placed so that they don’t inhibit your ability to carry your baby safely up the stairs! The only reason I’ve kept the stroller thus far is because it attaches to the snug ride. As soon as I can I’m switching to a MacLaren! Hope this review helps someone 🙂
