I am so glad to introduce a contributor of mine who also happens to be my cousin to help me with these product reviews. She is a proud married mom of 4 in a wonderful blended family that also lives here in Dallas-Fort Worth. She has experience being a single mom herself. We both got the chance to take a look at the GB Evoq Travel System that is available at Babies R Us and it's a treat to see her little one in it.

[yasr_overall_rating size=”small”] Today I got my GB travel system in the mail!!!
The box was BIG, however it was very easy to assemble. The color teal that I chose as an option was a very bright color and really helps the travel system stand out. Theis a different type of baby stroller that grows with your child.
First I put on the 2 front wheels and then I unfolded the carriage which was very easy.
I put on the seat forward facing first and then switched it. This system makes that very easy to do.
I watched a video on-line showing that I could attach the car seat to the stroller. I find this very convenient and love the fact that I have options. It is universal and transforms with my baby’s growth. Taking it off and on was easy but I just have to remember to slide the sliders down and up.
The car seat is also universal in which you can facing it towards you or forward facing also. With using the infant seat In order for it to being facing toward you, you have to move the sliders up. Not only does this travel system include beauty, design, and versatility but the GB Evoq 4-in-1 travel system works for every stage in your child’s growth and with a growing family like mine, it makes baby transport easy. Since I have three other children I have had the experience of different travel system throughout the years. Every stage brings exciting milestones with big and simple joys. Let the Evoq travel system be there with four stages of transition from infant to baby, toddler to new walkers.
- The Evoq features a reversible tilt seat for a parent-facing option for little babies and a forward-facing choice for older babies who want to look ahead.
- Older children who like to walk can enjoy a rest now and then on the glide-on board as my daughter was able to do. It was very sturdy.
- The Evoq Travel System comes with the Asana35 Infant Car Seat which includes GB’s authentic FirmFit Installation system. This unique FirmFit System helps to provide an easier installation, providing you with the peace of mind that your baby is protected and riding in one of the safest car seats available.
Being that I have 3 children ranging in ages from 6 months, 7 and 11 years old I tried out the back step while my eldest (11) pushed the stroller. This worked out well and she had no problem with pushing the stroller while my 7 year old had a little ride. I got to relax for a little bit!
Lots of room in the bottom of the stroller for shopping bags with easy access in case you need to quickly grab something out of the compartment. The wheels are very durable. It is easy to control with the front wheels turning 360 degrees. Wheels do not get stuck, I can easily turn the stroller in any direction I want to go. There is a option for locking the wheels when on gravel like surfaces. This is a cool feature.
The stroller is on the bigger side and does take up a lot of room in the trunk of my car. It takes up even more room if I have the toddler seat on top. The car seat head rest was high and I wish there were settings that I could adjust the height in the back to make it stay where I wanted. It just slides up and down when I pulled the straps and at first I couldn’t seem to lock it in the position I desired. I eventually figured it out. My baby was comfortable in the seat. I noticed that he seemed to be more upright in the car than my other car seat. The car seat has a wide bottom in which I can’t fit in a shopping cart like the one I have. This does make it harder to go shopping when I am by myself.
Growing with Baby
This stroller set will probably have more use of it when he is about a year old. It seems to be quality made and may last many years to come. I wish this stroller was more compact so it wouldn’t take up space in the trunk of my car and car seat bottom was smaller. But other than that it is a great durable stroller set. I will see if it can stand the test if time.
