As a Graco Ambassador, I’m delighted to have the opportunity to share reviews with you on some of Graco’s newest baby gear items. Today I’m sharing my review of the Graco Modes Click Connect Stroller (3 Lite). There are a few aspects of this stroller that set it apart from others on the market, and I’m excited to tell you all about those features!
Multiple Ways to Ride
With the Graco Modes Click Connnect Stroller, you are getting 6 different ways for your child to ride (or 9 if you purchase it as part of the Graco Modes Click Connect travel system). This stroller gives you the option of using it as:
- a rear-facing infant bassinet
- a front-facing infant bassinet
- a front-facing toddler seat
- a rear-facing toddler seat
- a rear-facing toddler seat with calf-support
- a forward-facing toddler seat with calf support
As you can see, with this stroller you are able to completely adjust the direction of the seat. Some babies/toddlers love to look out at the world around them, while others would prefer to look at mom and dad. I love that with a quick flip of the seat, you can adjust it to your baby’s preference. I’ve found that my younger babies generally want to face me, while the older kiddos love to look around.
I also love the fact that this stroller offers you the ability to lay the seat nearly flat for a sleeping baby. That can really come in handy so many times, plus it allows you to start using this stroller from birth. The adjustable calf-support is also a really nice feature for younger children, while offering the option to go without it when your child gets older.
Let’s face it, we all want a stroller that is stylish and modern. The Graco Modes Click Connect Stroller offers just that! There are quite a few different color combos to choose from. The particular model I’ve shown in this post is actually the Graco Modes 3 Lite LX Click Connect model, in the Watney fashion and it’s a Toys”R”Us exclusive. It’s a gender neutral color palette that will blend well with any decor. Personally, I also really love the way the 3-wheel (vs 4 wheel) model looks.
One of the main reasons you buy a stroller is to make getting around with a little one easier. Some strollers are so bulky that it almost feels like they are a hinder to getting around at times. That’s not the case with the Graco Modes Click Connect Stroller. The 3-wheel design makes for fast, easy turns. The frame, while sturdy, is also very lightweight. The front wheel swivels in every direction, but is also lockable, should you desire it.
Smart, Useful Features
There are 2 things that I must have with my strollers: a cup holder and a storage basket. This stroller has not one, but a total of FOUR cup holders: two for your child and two for you! Plus, the cup holders for your child are adjustable, meaning they pivot inwards towards your child and away from them as well. There is also a tray where you can store your keys, phone, wallet, etc..
The stroller has a generous sized basket to store your diaper bag, shopping bags, and all the other little things you need to bring with you. Because the child’s leg rest is adjustable, it’s easy to access the basket from both the front and the rear.
The canopy on this stroller is generously sized and plenty big enough to shade your baby. Should they fall asleep, the peek-through-window makes it easy to peak in on them while still strolling along. Speaking of falling asleep, if you would like to recline the seat, it’s very easy to do with just the push of a button on the back of the seat, then slowly pull the seat down.
When it’s time to go, I love the quick 1-second fold on this stroller. It really couldn’t be easier or quicker!
Another great feature if the ability to use the harness as a 5-point harness when they are young and then easily convert it to a 3 point harness, as your child gets older. Since the stroller can support up to 50 pounds, you’ll be able to use it well into the preschool years. And, trust me, as a mom of 4, there will be plenty of time when your preschooler will get tired and want to take it easy in the stroller. Plus, I love having a stroller with me to carry all of our gear too. I don’t know how I ever went shopping at the outlets before without one!
Overall, the Graco Modes Click Connect Stroller is a great choice. It’s affordable, stylish, and offers all the bells and whistles!
As I mentioned, the pattern shown is a Toys”R”Us Exclusive and you can purchase this stroller as a travel system there.
