So, you guys know that we’re picky about our strollers. At this point, we’ve bought five single strollers and two double strollers and we’ve been using them all on different days for different things (this one for running on the street, this one for running at the park, this one for the museums, this one for the mall, etc.). When I was contacted to test out the GB Evoq Travel System, I have to admit that I was happy to be getting a new stroller but I assumed we’d be passing this one along to someone else since our stroller needs are covered.
This travel system. Is. Awesome.
First off, this is the first stroller that accommodates both of our kids while recognizing that they’re two years apart in age. For quick trips, we can use the car seat attachment so we don’t need to bother with pulling Calvin out (great if he’s asleep). The car seat is very nice, easy to install, and is larger than our other infant car seat so it still fits our growing boy in the safe rear-facing position. However, if both kids want to use the stroller, the adjustable stroller seat adjusts to either kid easily and Eva also has the option of riding on the standing platform while her brother sits (a first for us in the stroller world).
In fact, this stroller has won the coveted position of being the stroller we’re taking to Walt Disney World for our big cross-country vacation. It’s a very smooth ride, has a large storage basket, and the seat transitions from sitting to a nice sleeping position without waking Calvin up. Eva actually slept in the stroller parked in our bedroom the other night because she’s been fighting a bad cold and being just a little propped up made all the difference (sleeping in the stroller in the house = another first for us!).
It’s stuff like this that makes me want to have another kid. I feel like we’re going to try out all the great stuff and just when we have the absolute best of everything our kids will be too big! Luckily, we have at least a couple of years left in this stroller for monster truck boy and at the very least I can be the person who can tell people exactly what they need to add to their baby registry, right?
If you’re in the market for an all-in-one travel system that will grow with your kid, the GB Evoq Travel System is available exclusively at Babies “R” Us stores and BabiesRUs.com.
