Guest Review by Karen Lancaster

I am always on the look out for innovative products to share with you, that are designed to make life a bit easier for us mums and dads. So, I was really interested to hear all about a new buggy design, from my friend Karen. She has three children under five, so really knows what's required when it comes to pushchair design. Here's a review she did of the Graco Evo . She also has a really cute dog, but don't let that influence you!

Note: No Spaniels were harmed in the making of this video!

I thought I would tell you about my lovely Graco Evo travel system. I have had numerous pushchairs over the years and I was pleasantly surprised by how fantastic the Evo is for a fraction of the price of competitors. I have the Evo in Sand. I am using it with my 5 week old little girl. With this it came with frame, seat (from 6 mths), carry cot, rain cover and car seat. I have to say it was extremely easy to put together. In total it took me less than 15 minutes from getting out of the box. When you assemble the you need to click on the front wheels and feed the back wheels onto the frame. Here I had slight difficulty getting the little pins in as I have long nails but it only took a couple minutes and was simple once in the pins were in the correct position. That's it your ready to go. The frame is so simple to fold and it folds really small! It looks fantastic. You can have the seat forward or rear facing. Huge plus is all the covers come off so you can pop them in the wash when needed. The handle is easy for 1 handed manoeuvrability which is needed in my case as I have a 4 and 2 year old in tow. When I took it out into town I tried out various types of surfaces. It handled a dream. So easy to turn around, lift to go up curbs and even with plastic types worked well over cobbles. The frame is very sturdy and made to last. The seats are easily swapped around. The mechanisms are simple and only take a couple of clicks. I know this will last me for years. Overall if you are looking for a fantastic value for money pushchair with many features of a top of the range pushchair (hideously over priced) this is definitely the one. Well done Graco!
