Best known for their travel systems, car seats and pack n’plays, Graco is expanding their collection to include an umbrella stroller that doubles as a travel system.
With more families travelling the globe, gear companies are starting to really tailor their products to be more efficient for travel. And while Graco has plenty of products in their collection that are perfect for excursions, not one of their umbrella strollers functions as a travel system.
That will change this Spring when the company launches their new Breaze stroller. Designed for children birth to 50lbs, this lightweight stroller accepts all Graco Snugride Click Connect Infant Car Seats, but also has a padded seat that will recline flat to accommodate a sleepy newborn.
An extra-large canopy with UV 50 protection and pop-out visor offers shade from the sun and adjustable calf support keeps baby comfortable. The Breaze features lockable front-swivel wheels with suspension and, once folded, it automatically locks and has a carry strap.
A removable parent cup holder and easy-access, extra-large storage basket make this a full-featured stroller without compromise.
The Breaze will be sold in three fabric patterns; the Tidalwave(exclusively for Babies R Us) and Rockweave and Rust, which will only be sold at BuyBuyBaby.
We also had the chance to check out the new Pack ‘n Play® Playard Smart Station($219).
The unique portable changing station and the portable travel bed can be used in and out of the playard, so you can keep baby close, comfy and clean no matter what room you’re in.
The roomy storage will help keep you organized, while the songs, sounds and bassinet vibration will keep baby soothed and relaxed.
Portable changing station lets you change baby in or out of playard:
- Integrated changer storage keeps diapers and wipes at your fingertips
- Portable travel bed for a comfy nap spot anywhere in your home
- Extra-large organizer includes removable hamper for time-saving convenience
- Overhead toy bar with detachable toys to entertain your baby.
- Signature Graco® push-button fold makes closing your playard quick and hassle-free
Graco will also be introducing a new super compact highchair. Just 8.5 inches wide when it is folded, the Slim Spaces Highchair($129) stores in even the smallest spaces.
New parents will love that it comes pre-assembled and ready to use the moment you pull it out of the box. Easy cleanup is key: stain resistant seatpad and dishwasher-safe, removable tray insert make clean up a snap. The 6-position height adjustment, 3-position recline and plush body support mean it’s as comfortable for baby as it is convenient for you.
We also previewed Graco’s Little Lounger; two products in one – a rocking seat and a vibrating lounger!
In rocking seat mode, calm baby with the gentle back and forth motion of the rocking seat. Then, flip down the Rock Locks™ and the seat becomes a vibrating lounger with 2-speed vibration. The ingenious seat has multiple recline positions, so that it’s easy to find just the right position for baby’s comfort. When you’re not using it, Little Lounger folds compactly to store or travel, and a cute toy bar will keep baby occupied. Best of all it’s only $79.99, which is the perfect price point for a shower gift!
