My baby does NOT like car seats, making even a 10 min ride a drama. So when we got the Safety 1st car seat, I was so happy that we now can take long rides! The car seat has enough cushion which in our case was THE problem. It also has raised sides for side impact protection, so the baby looks like in a cocoon!The car seat is not bulky compared to our old car seat, and at first I was wondering HOW will we be able to use it with growing baby. Now that my baby grew a little, I see that the car seat has plenty of room to grow. I can not think of any negative comments about this car seat. Maybe that's why it's recommended by Car Seats For The Littles. As for the stroller, although it looks great, I see some unsafe negatives unfortunately. First and foremost, after using it every day for the last 6 weeks, I still can't (for the life of me) properly click car seat onto the stroller. Which means that the said car seat is prone to falling from the stroller because it's not secured at all. I never had anything like that with Gracos. Second, the knobs that are supposed to hold the car seat on the stroller frame are a hazard --- a baby / toddler could accidentally bump into those sharp edges and get serious lacerations. As for me, once we are done with this bucket car seat, I'm planning on putting a ducktape cusion on and around those knobs. Third, if you are ever going to go up or down some stairs with the stroller, be aware that the green brake pedals are waaaay too long and will be scratching the steps. Once, while going up the steps, both brakes got engaged and of course then the wheels would not turn. And finally my forth point -- once you open the box, make sure you oil the wheels (they squeak otherwise!) and the folding mechanism because without some WD-40 this stroller is a serious stiff! Now, the nice things about this stroller. It is made in USA! It IS lightweight and super easy to maneuver, even with the car seat on it. The basket is rather small (compared to Graco) but we learned to just run with it. Folding it REALLY is a breeze as long as you oil the folding mechanism. It took me a couple of days to figure out how does unfolding work but I got it now! Canopy is okay, and the peeking window on the canopy is lacking something to hold it open. But with the help of clothes pins we mastered that too (see pics). Very good feature is that you can unzip the whole seat padding to wash and then easily zip it all back together. I also love the color -- paired up with a little of bright green, and we have ourselves a sharp look!
