Graco has recently released their first jogger! The Graco FastAction Fold Jogger Click Connect Travel System is the ultimate crossover stroller, combining all of the comfort and convenience features of a traditional stroller with the performance and maneuverability of all all-terrain jogger!
If you purchase the Graco FastAction Fold Jogger Click Connect Travel System, it will come with the car seat, however, if you purchase just the stroller, it will work with all Graco Click Connect infant car seats. Out of the box, it was quite easy to assemble. You just had to snap the wheels in place and attach the parent and child tray and you are done. I did it (without directions) in under five minutes.
This stroller is awesome! My all-time favorite feature is that you can fold this baby up with just one hand! In the seat, you will find a red strap labeled, “Pull to Fold.” Give it a firm pull and it closes right on up. Also, when it is folded, it is self-standing, thanks to the kick-stand feature. That’s right – you don’t have to lay your stroller down on the dirty ground anymore! How awesome is that!?!
When choosing a stroller, I find it important that it will hold all of my “stuff.” This stroller features an extra-large storage basket underneath the seat, perfect for storing your diaper bag. My diaper bag is quite large and it fit without an issue. The deluxe parent’s tray has two cup holders, a smartphone cradle for your phone or MP3 player and a covered storage compartment. Unfortunately, my Samsung Galaxy S3 was too big to fit in the smartphone cradle, however, it did fit in the covered storage compartment without a problem.
One thing I immediately noticed was that the stroller had reflectors on the back wheels and along the side of the child’s tray. This is a great safety feature if you are out in low-light visibility. I found that the child’s canopy was large and would adequately keep the sun off your child while they are in the stroller. The stroller seat can be reclined in multi-positions, ensuring you child is comfortable while you are out and about.
Here are some additional features of the Graco FastAction Fold Jogger:
- Air-filled rubber tires offer suspension
- Locking front swivel wheel provides an easy transition from daily strolling to jogging
- Extra-large, expandable canopy with peek-a-boo window keeps your child shaded
- Reflectors for added low-light visibility
- Child’s tray with cup holder pivots or removes for no-fuss stroller entry
- Convertible 3 or 5-point harness grows with your child
