When my daughter was brn in 2009, we purchased a pink Spree Travel System from Wal-Mart. We LOVED this system, and it held up so well, that my sister is currently using it for her daughter born in 2012 - and we didn't use it lightly the 3 years we used it!! When we found out that our 3rd child due in early February 2013 would be a boy, we KNEW we would purchase another Graco Travel System, but could not find a pattern we liked in the Spree line. Enter the Alano Travel System! This system has all the same positives as the Spree system that we loved (deep cup holders for parents, an extra large storage bin that doesn't drag the ground, a tray that moves and keeps the child's cup stationary, one-handed folding, etc.), but in my opinion, the fabrics are thicker and of higher quality. This system also seems lighter than I remember the Spree system. We love our Graco products, and this is sure to be our new favorite!
