Summary: I loved the pattern on this product. The car seat has worked out well, no complaints. The overall function of the whole set-up is decent and good idea. OK now for the bad.. The Cons - folding up the stroller, unless you are using two hands and move quick enough, the front of the stroller gets scraped on the ground. This made my stroller looked beat up before it was even used! The worst part of the stroller are the wheels!!
Summary: We got this as a gift and it was great at first. Then after only a few uses the front stroller wheels started making a terrible humming noise. We have tried to fix the wheels but the noise keeps coming back. I'm talking horrible, loud enough to be extreemly annoying noise. I have a friend with the same system and she has the same problem. Buy a different travel system!!!!
Summary: We just received the Elephant Parade travel system along with the maching pack and play. We had the items in our baby registry and were thrilled to continue our elephant theme. The car seat has the green and brown pattern as specified but there is absolutely NO elephants anywhere. Neither does the pack and play. Thinking that I made the mistake I went to Amazon's site to review the picture and sure enough there is a big elephant on the stroller.

Summary: THIS WAS A SHOWER GIFT FOR MY GRANDDAUGHTER (WHO'S NOW HAD OUR 12TH GREAT GRANDCHILD) AND SHE LOVES IT. IT'S THE SECOND GRACO TRAVEL SYSTEM I'VE BOUGHT AND BOTH OF OUR GRANDCHILDREN HAVE JUST LOVED IT. IT'S THE REASON WHY I BOUGHT MORE THAN ONE.

Summary: Does not have ANY elephants. Its called elephant parade and that's why we bought it, to match our elephant theme. There is even a picture of the print with a big elephant in the middle. Everything is there, the color and pattern and all, but no elephants....not one. In short, the pictures, title, and description of this item are inaccurate and missleading.
Summary: This travel system was purchased for my first grandchild's use. The safety guard that extends down the sides are going to keep our little one's fingers safe when he starts to reach out and touch everything. My son in law loves the ease with which he can open the stroller one handed. The stroller folds compactly and doesn't take up much room in the trunk during travel.
Summary: I bought this in preparation for baby, so my review is more about the construction and assembly than actual use. I loved that many of the parts were already assembled right out of the box. You really only have to put on the wheels, the footrest, and the brakes for the stroller. The car seat is completely assembled. The directions are relatively easy to understand, but they are mainly pictures of the equipment showing you where to snap pieces into place.
