When it comes to a new baby, whether you are a first time parent or a seasoned parent, we find that the gear options are always changing. With that we find that with the new safety standards and options in features that are offered, that the search for the gear that is right for us can be somewhat overwhelming. Thankfully, for me and many other parents, I like to seek out the products from the brands we know and trust, and like many when it comes to some of that baby gear, Baby Trend not only has the gear we need but they also offer that gear in a variety of patterns that both parents and baby can appreciate. So when we were sent the Baby Trend EZ Ride5 Travel System in the Floral Garden pattern to review, I was excited to see what Heather thought of it and have her share her review with our readers! You can read her review below.
I was struggling to find a car seat that fit properly in my car for Zoey. When we received this car seat travel system I couldn’t wait to use it. It fits perfectly in my car. I finally feel good knowing my little Zoey would be safe riding in the car. The car seat base is easy to install and the base has a foot to adjust the height to make it level in the car. The car seat latches easily into and out of the base, which when you need to place the seat in, you just set it in the base and it clicks in. No need to tip it in to latch it. And when it comes to taking the car seat in and out of the car, the handle on the car seat is triangle shaped in the center and it makes it easier to carry and the seat isn’t banging into your leg like most with a straight handle.
Some of the features of this system include:
* Includes EZ Flex-Loc® infant car seat and base
* Infant car seat accommodates 5 ~ 30 pounds (2.2 and 13.6kg.) and heights of 30 inches or less (76.2cm)
* Large soft head support for the car seat or the stroller
* Peek-a-boo window
* Covered parent tray with two deep cup holders
* Multi-position reclining seat
* Height adjustable handle
* One hand fold
* 5-point safety harness with padded harness covers
* Large storage basket
* Swing-away child tray with snack/cup holders
The, when it comes to the stroller, I really like that it is lightweight and a bit more narrow than most which makes it easier to use in tight spaces. Easy to fold up or open, and the car seat sits securely into the stroller so no need to wake baby taking her out of the seat to put her in the stroller. The cup holders on the stroller are nice to keep a drink in while going out on walks and the swing away tray will make it easy to get her in and out of the stroller when she gets older.
We got the Floral Garden pattern and it is absolutely gorgeous and it totally fits Zoey! There are many colors and patterns to choose from, which allows you to find the one that appeals to you best. I will recommend this to anyone looking for a safe, reliable, affordable, and easy to use system. Making the Baby Trend EZ Ride5 Travel System, a must have when you are heading out with baby!
