Some of you may have already seen this. Some of you may have even tried it out at your local Babies R Us. Well, I had the opportunity to take this one around town this weekend – and she’s a beauty!
I’m talking about the Signature Series Graco 3-in-1 stroller. Not only does the stroller look good, but it is incredibly functional too.
Since it was relatively nice this weekend in Atlanta, the Parlaman clan decided to take a stroll around the neighborhood. I wanted face-to-face time with Little Pinkie Pie so I decided to have her face me in the stroller. This stroller allows your child to face you or face away from you. Not only did I like seeing her adorable little face, but I also loved seeing her delight while saying “weeee” as we zipped around the neighborhood (I have to say, this stroller really is ultra maneuverable and easy to steer).
On Sunday, we visited a local science museum and I decided to have Pinkie Pie facing away from me so she could see the exhibit– in style. Reversing the direction of the seat turned out to be pretty simple. I just just squeezed the gray handles on both sides of the seat and I could then place it in either direction. It’s also worth noting that there is a ton of storage with this stroller! It has double cup holders for both mom and baby (even though drinks were not permitted in the museum), the basket was large and it was easy to get to all of my stuff–diaper bag, coats, museum program, and stuffed animals (we had lots of good stuff in there). Once we were finished at the museum, I simply removed the stroller seat, squeezed the fold latch and the stroller was ready for storage in the trunk of my car.
I do have to point out a couple of things about this stroller that I did not personally use since Pinkie Pie is 18 months and just outgrew her infant carrier, but I still need to tell you about (since they are awesome features). The Signature Series 3-in-1 stroller includes a car seat adapter so ANY Graco SnugRide infant car seat can easily be snapped into the stroller to create your own travel system.
Once the SnugRide infant car seat is attached, you will see that the car seat is higher than traditional travel systems and you can actually get in closer to your baby due to the higher position and a curved handle. This handle, the Closeness Handle allows you to lean in close to your baby so you can touch her nose, put her pacifier back in her mouth (which is what my daughter loved), adjust her “lovey” or tickle her feet. This feature does not stop you from capitalizing on the large storage basket and smooth maneuverability of the stroller, as well as the 3-position stroller seat that lies flat for the younger child.
I will say it again, this stroller is not only easy to use and maneuver, it also looks so good!
The stroller offers great features for the Mom that has a new a baby, such as the elevated car seat position, Closeness Handle, reclining stroller seat that lies flat, and easy access to the stroller basket; and has awesome features for the Mom with an older child, like the reversible seat, 3-position reclining seat, and cup holders for both Mom & baby. And, it folds for storage in two easy steps: remove the stroller seat (or the car seat adapter depending on which one you are using) and squeeze the fold latch to store in your car trunk.

We had a great ride around town in our Signature Series 3-in-1 stroller. Where will you go with yours?
