It's JUST a stroller...

OK - that's what I thought when I originally registered for the GRACO Snugrider (Jungle Scene - on the left) from Target. We received the Travel System (car seat + matching stroller) as gracious gifts.

Anyway, to give you the readers digest version - we hated the Snugrider because when we hooked the car seat into the stroller the tray that it hooked into would start sliding down - thus bringing the carseat (and baby!!) down with it. Plus, when collapsed, the stroller rested not on its wheels but on the tray. The tray was so banged up and nasty and I was worried about the safety of my beautiful Charlie.

So, after a hassle with Target (I hate their return policy) I called Graco directly for help. They are paying the shipping for me to send them the old Snugrider and sending me a cash refund. YAY!

Yesterday we picked out our new stroller/car seat system. Another Graco. The Graco Stylus (on the right). It's a skoch more than the Snugrider but well worth the extra $40. It is MUCH sturdier - and when it collapses it rests on its wheels. Another great bonus - It's also a way cuter pattern!

And that's not even half the story, because we already messed with the stupid thing once and exchanged/re-bought it once.

Geez! Sorry about all the craziness! We have the Graco MetroLite and we love it. If this other one doesn't work, I'd try that.

Despite the headache, it's actually been a good experience since Graco stepped up and basically replaced the old stroller with minimal hassle. So even though it's been a pain, I would definitely recommend going with Graco.

I saw your new car seat today - and I haven't had a chance to talk to you for a couple weeks but I wanted to tell you that I love your hair!!! Super cute! I'm sooo jealous of the pattern on your new travel system - they didn't have that one at Babies R Us when we were buying ours, but I would have seriously considered it!!! I also loooove Kasbah - I wonder if I can find something wrong with mine so I can get a new one!!! Haha!
