We’ve had our Graco Metrolite Stroller for over four years and I still love it. As my son is getting older, I’ve tried an umbrella-type stroller, but it felt too small and flimsy. I’ve also tried using a smaller stroller, but was very disappointed in the durability. We are frequent travelers and prefer to bring our Metrolite on every trip. I’m very particular on what I need in a stroller, as are most moms. My friend Kimberlee went through 7 strollers before finding her favorite. We have the Delancy print version, and it still looks great after 4 years of daily use.
Here are the features I love about traveling with this stroller:
-Lightweight and folds flat enough for the parking tram at Disney
-Stands on its own when folded (handy at airport gate check)
-Durable to withstand airport and rental car abuse
-Strong and large enough to act as our luggage carrier
-Padded seat is very comfortable, lays flat for naps
-Snack tray and cup holder for both child and driver
-VERY roomy underbasket; holds jackets, diaper bag, and shopping bags
-Window in shade cover to check on baby, large shade cover
-Sturdy rubber wheels give smoother ride than plastic
-Full travel system, no need for accessories = save money
-Large enough to row with child; it’s the only stroller we use form birth to 4 yrs old
-Adjustable handlebar for mom/dad driver
-Baby carrier is very cozy and easy to carry; extra carseat base available.
I highly recommend the Graco Metrolite Travel System. What’s your favorite stroller and why? How long (what age) did your child use a stroller?

Did not get the Metrolite travel system but bought the Graco Quattro Tour Deluxe Travel Systems Snugride32.
Whichever system it is, Graco’s system are light, durable, with many compartments to hold baby stuffs. Most importantly the convenience and ease to move around.
Moving around with a baby in hand is no joke. I learned how to balance and juggle within a short period of time and it can be very tiring. Hence a good travel systems help moms like us.

Totally agree! I’m a big fan of the Graco products. After 4 years and 9 states, I passed my Metrolite on to my niece, and it’s still in great shape!
