My Graco Review
(*This post contains Amazon affiliate links; you can shop my products at the end of this post!)
Let me first start off by saying; *I received my newest Graco 4Ever carseat for free in exchange for writing this post. BUT I own many Graco products that I have bought and paid for with my own money and want to share with you why I love them. My purpose in writing a Graco review is to share my experience with the many Graco products that I use on a daily basis.
Sometimes people see a post is sponsored, or that an individual received a free item and instantly think; “oh they’re just writing a nice piece because they have to”. But that’s not always the case! Sometimes people are raving fans and want to share their love of a product with the world! Which is why I want to stress that before I ever contacted Graco I was, and am, a huge Graco fan.
Four years ago when I started my hunt for the perfect infant car seat the most obvious choice was Graco. Their name consistently comes up as one of the Best Convertible Carseats and over all top rated car seats in recent years. The more I researched, the more I was convinced Graco was what I wanted.
Graco FastAction Jogger Click Connect Stroller System
We bought the Graco FastAction Fold Jogger Click Connect Stroller System because we wanted a durable stroller and jogger so I could workout. I love that the set came with the stroller, base, and car seat all in one pop. I ordered it off Target.com because I wanted a cute color and it was shipped right to my door! As only first time parents would, we took that baby out for a test drive immediately! Ha ha it rode smooth as butter and still does!
The only complaint I’ve heard about this stroller system was that the handle was a little high for short people. I’m 5’8″ and have never had a problem; my stroller is 4 years old and I think I read the design has changed since then. I love the look of my stroller and that it’s basically all terrain. The large wheels allow me to easily take it just about anywhere.
When our son got a little older we knew it was time to transition him out of his infant seat; but which one?
Milestone All-in-1 Car Seat
Of course I dove right back into google reviews and found Graco again consistently coming up as one of the top picks by mothers and also as one of the top safety picks by many different websites. Finding a positive Graco review on the internet is not a hard search friends, and for good reason!
We knew we wanted a convertible carseat because they go further so we chose the Milestone All-in-1 Car Seat and so far are loving it! It takes a bit of work to get it installed properly, but once it’s in, you know it’s in tight! That gives me a lot of peace of mind. There is a lever on the top so you can easily adjust the height of the shoulder straps, the cup holder changes sides, and my favorite feature is that all of the padding comes off easily so you can throw it in the wash.
Ready To Grow Double Stroller
When baby number two was added to the mix I knew I would need a double stroller if I ever wanted to go anywhere alone with the kiddos. I came back to Graco because I already loved my first stroller and I read a Graco review of the Ready to Grow Double Stroller so I thought it’d make a good choice. I bought my stroller second hand off Craigslist; but I still wanted to add it to my Graco review because I think it’s fantastic! The Ready to Grow Double Stroller is really easy to fold and actually not that bulky at all which was surprising to me. The stroller is long, but it folds up so nicely I put it upright in my van and don’t have a problem.
So far I haven’t rearranged the seats since my 3 year old is still okay riding in the normal seat, but I know pretty soon he’ll be wanting to walk more so I like having the option to put the bench in for him. I also love that it has a huge storage basket underneath; it’s perfect for shopping!
4Ever 4-in-1 Convertible Car Seat
Whoa, just whoa; this baby is nice! Immediately upon taking it out of the box I was impressed with the squishy padding and the double cup holders; my son is now jealous that his car seat only has one -ha ha! It’s a very solid carseat and has a pull lever on the bottom that allows it to slide back and forth from a reclining to upright position to make transitions easier.
Similar to the Milestone, the 4Ever 4-in-1 carseat can grow with your baby through every stage; it starts as low as 4 pounds and goes all the way to 120! It turns into a backless booster seat when your child is ready which means I have less to buy!
DuoDiner LX Highchair
Okay, this is slightly embarrassing, but even as I was writing this article I realized I had another Graco item right under my nose; our high chair! Guys, I’m telling you, I’m obsessed with Graco! I’m not even kidding, I was almost ready to publish this little piece when I glanced over at our kitchen and noticed our Graco DuoDiner LX Highchair. So here is another product that we use everyday and I have no complaints with. The tray glides smoothly, there’s a liner on top that you can remove for easy washing, and all the padding strips off easily so it can be thrown in the washer. My highchair still looks brand new after almost four years of continual wear and tear.
My Graco Review
Overall I’d give Graco a 5 out of 5 stars! After using their products for over 4 years, I still have all the original pieces I bought and use them frequently. I love their products and have from the very beginning. I’ve never had a problem with any of the items we’ve bought and am glad that they are so versatile and can grow with my children. So far they’ve all withstood the rigorous tests the children bring; all my items still looks clean and new thanks to the ability to easily remove padding if I need to throw it in the wash.
If you’re looking for high quality products for your family, look no further than Graco! From one mom to the next I highly recommend this brand! I know you won’t be disappointed and will find them just as trust worthy as I do!
Cheers to Safety!
