Our household has 3 drivers, so we all bought travel systems around the same price but different companies to try them out. We got all of them home, assembled them and took them for a 'test' run. Of all three, The Safety 1st Whale system is the best functioning (and best looking in my opinion). It didn't have the biggest basket (Evenflo was about 1/3 larger) but it seems large enough to maneuver around a store without being cumbersome. This travel system was the easiest to fold and light enough so that my mom who is 4'9" could lift it into her suv. The only gripe I have is that the snack tray doesn't come off completely (or at least I haven't found a way to remove it yet), but that's something I'm willing to give up because the other aspects are so nice. My favorite feature is the peek-a-boo window at the top of the sunshade. It lets me look in on my little one without having to raise the shade... it also keeps strange hands from trying to reach in to touch the baby because I can keep it closed :-) After testing all three systems, this is the only one we are keeping. The other two are going back to the store and being exchanged for models similar to this one- Safety 1st, just different patterns to match my mom & husband's cars.
I love this set I purchased a year ago it was easy to assemble and long lasting with both only saw one person with this set, unlike a ******* set you will see plenty pf people with it. I love the fabric and the designs washable and it doesn't fade highly recommended especially if you want to be different.
THE CARTER'S WHALE OF A TIME BLUE STRIPED TRAVEL SYSTEM WAS AN EXCELLENT CHOICE FOR MY FIRSTBORN GRANDSON. IT MAKES IT CONVENIENT WHEN YOU CAN BUY IT ALL IN ONE. ALSO, IT WAS REASONABLY PRICED.
I think it's very cute and was easy to assemble. Drives smoothly.
