Summary: I loved it when it was used with a carrycot, very comfortable for a baby. I did not like its seat unit. My boy had to stay in the same sitting position all the time, after short time he tried to get out of it. No leg rest, tiny shopping basket. Reversible handle is useless.
Pros: Liked the carrycot Easy to fold Light
Cons: Seat unit is not comfortable Bulky Tiny shopping basket No led rest
Great, sturdy travel system. Very lightweight and easy to push, manouvure

Summary: Overall, I would recommend. I have only used the carrycot and carseat so far and cant wait until my daughter is old enough to put in the pushchair. One of the things i really love about this system is how cosy and comfortable it seems to be. As a first time mum in Winter, I wanted a proper pram for my newborn, and not a reclining buggy with a babynest. This was perfect.
Pros: Reversible handle, easy fold, sturdy, comfy and safe carrycot. This travel system is very easy to manouvure. I got a package with everything included, raincovers for pram, carseat and pushchair, very comfy looking cosytoes. I would also recommend the little backpack/bag that clips on the back. I found that for daily trips it is perfect size to carry a few nappies, wipes, change of clothes and bottles if needed. I either rest it on the handlebars or on my back. It make...
Cons: As everyone has mentioned the basket is small, so it will depend on your requirements. I normally take a standard backpack with me to the shops (not referring to the Graco one, which is great for baby essentials) which carrys as much as any other baskets. I then pop the heavier items into the basket (ie milk, potatoes). The carseat looks a little bulkier than many others, but as this is my first I dont really know any different.
This is my first child so first buggy not had anything to compare it to really but think its a good system

Summary: I do think this buggy is very good in all, there are just a few minor things that can be improved to make it perfect. Basket is completely useless, cant attach toys to buggy part, no point in reverse handle as cant steer it that way.
Pros: Easy to push, light, easy to change from car seat-moses part-buggy part.
Cons: Small basket, buggy part you cant attach any toys to keep youngster entertained. Cant really steer buggy when handle is other way.
Summary: The symbio feels so light and easy to push & manoevere which is a necessity as I am usually pushing one handed while holding my little girls hand. I am in love with the reversible handle as I always love to have my little one facing me; it makes it very easy to let them face the other way which is great when they are older as they love to watch what's going on in the world! Very easy to fold and fits well in the boot of my vw golf.
Pros: Very light, easy to push & fold! Awesome reversible handlebar!
Cons: Not very big shopping basket and quite difficult to get to.
I just got the Graco Symbio for my one year old son and I think it is a really innovative pushchair!

Summary: I've been more than impressed with the Symbio's innovative and user friendly features. My son is snug, safe and comfortable, and it is a pleasure to push. I wish I'd had it for him from birth. This is the third pushchair he's had and I'm really happy with it! Even the things that I thought were cons, turned out to be positives. The people at Graco know what they're doing!! The one handed reversible handle feature is the real selling point for me.
Pros: The reversible handle is brilliant. There are times when my son is tired or grumpy or if we are in a crowded environment, when nothing beats being able to face Mum. It's such an easy one handed procedure...genius!! The pushchair is lightweight, easy to manoevure and pushes really easily giving a really smooth ride. The harness is easy to use, not at all fiddly. The raincover fits on with zips and poppers which is really user friendly. The seat cover is really soft and...
Cons: The storage basket isn't as big as on some travel systems but I find it adequate for my needs. I'm going to invest in the matching baby bag that clips to the seat back. That should give me extra storage space. The seat needs to be removed to fold the chassis. However, once I got used to this, I realised it was actually beneficial in that I could squeeze the wheels into the back of my car without worrying about damaging or dirtying the seat, which is then stowed away s...
A fab lightweight pushchair, that looks great and is perfect for all travelling needs.

Summary: I love this pram because it meets all my needs for my baby, and it's so lightwight. Having been through 4 prams, and my daughter only being 6 months old, I know that this is the one for us now. It looks fantastic and is so easy to use. The seat can be lifted off and turned round so that your large wheels are always at the back and swivel ones at the front, but if you are on the go and you want your baby facing you or away, with one click of a button the handle can be on...
Pros: The symbio can be used forward facing or facing mum/dad , who ever is pushing. Lightweight, Great design. Suitable for heavier terrain. Removable wheels. Brake on the handle. Very padded seat. Wipe clean fabric Reclines easily More than one colour theme to choose from:- Moon,Mars and slate
Cons: Not the smallest when folded Seat has to be removed when folded Not much baggage room (can still hang baby bag over the bar though)
Excerpt: This pram is good but some features let it down. Firstly the basket is pointless you can only fit the raincover in there nothing else. The straps are annoying to adjust and not good quality. It is however really good for moving around though I must admit. If you want her lying down there is a clip behind the hood that goes up and you can very simply move it up or down to whatever position you choose.
Summary: Great carrycot that fits the Evo and Symbio pram chassis. Has a move able base that tilts up at the dial of a button to allow baby to see more and be more upright. A godsend for sicky babies. Well padded, good quality materials and workmanship. Tested to 9kg but we used til 5 months and 6kg roughly as baby could sit up by then. Lovely handle which acts as a bull bar too.
